300 Celebrities Sign Letter Decrying “New” Anti-Semitism in France

editor 26 April 2018

By TheTower.org Staff.. Some 300 well-known French celebrities are urging national action to counter a “new anti-Semitism” that they blame on rising Islamic extremism in France, the Associated Press reported Sunday (April 22, 2018). “Antisemitism is not a Jewish affair, it is everyone’s,” begins the letter. France, the authors charged, has “become a theater of murderous antisemitism.” The signatories warned of the “quiet ethnic purging” of Jews driven by rising Islamic extremism in the country, particularly in deprived neighborhoods. They also accused the media of remaining silent in the face of anti-Semitic atrocities.

editor 25 April 2018

By Michael Bachner.. Simon Wiesenthal Center says image of IDF slaughtering Palestinians to celebrate Israel’s 70th anniversary will encourage Hamas terror, anti-Jewish sentiment in Holland. A newspaper in the Netherlands has come under fire for publishing a cartoon depicting an Israeli soldier shooting masses of Palestinians on the Gaza border in celebration of the Jewish state’s 70th Independence Day, which was marked on Thursday (April 19, 2018).

The Toxic Reality Of Antisemitism In Europe

editor 21 April 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. Antisemitism in Europe has become mainstream and normalized at a level “not seen since the Second World War.” So says the president of the European Jewish Congress, Dr. Moshe Kantor, who states: “There has been an increase in open, unashamed and explicit hatred directed against Jews.” It’s as if a veil lowered after the Holocaust has now been lifted to reveal that little has changed. Poland is seeking to deny its own history of antisemitism, with a new law criminalizing anyone who accuses Poland of having been complicit in the Nazi destruction of European Jewry. [Photo top right: 1819 Hep-Hep riots in Frankfurt. An engraving by Johann Michael Voltz. Two peasant women are assaulting a Jew with pitchfork and broom.

#EnoughisEnough

editor 20 April 2018

By J-Wire Newsdesk.. Malcolm Green says that this is the film he wishes he never made. Anti-semitism in the UK.

Or rather, the film I wish I’d never had to make. However, in the UK today, in some ‘pockets’ of our political system (rather large pockets it has to be said), antisemitism is making itself felt with a vengeance.

And whilst there is a lot of handwringing and tut-tutting going on, there is very little action to send this hatred back to the fringes and beyond. (more…)

PMW Bulletins: To avenge the Crusaders’ defeat by Muslims, the West created Israel

editor 14 April 2018

By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik..  The Palestinian Authority continues to deny Israel’s historical right to exist, claiming Israel is merely a colony of the West created illegally and it is destined “not to survive.” In an op-ed by a regular columnist in the official PA daily, Israel is described as “the colonialist satanic plant in the region on the ruins of the Palestinian people’s Nakba.” The Nakba or “the catastrophe,” is the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel: (more…)

editor 11 April 2018

The German federal government has appointed career diplomat Felix Klein as its inaugural commissioner in a newly-created, high-profile post dedicated to combating antisemitism in the country.

‘I Think I Was Saved’ From France, Writes Granddaughter of Brutally-Murdered Holocaust Survivor Mireille Knoll

editor 29 March 2018

By Ben Cohen.. The president of France and the leader of the Democratic Party in the US Senate were among several international figures who paid tribute on Tuesday to Mireille Knoll — the 85-year-old Holocaust survivor murdered in her Paris apartment last Friday — but it was a Facebook post by one of the victim’s granddaughters that best captured the tragedy of the moment. Jessica Knoll, who lives in Israel, composed a poem in Hebrew in which she paid tribute to her grandmother — whose death is being investigated by French police as an antisemitic hate crime — and excoriated Europe as a continent whose politicians “have stopped thinking.” [Photo top right: Jessica Knoll with her grandmother Mireille, who was murdered in her Paris apartment on March 23.

The Sewer Of Left-Wing Anti-Semitism

editor 29 March 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. There was only one thing worse than the remarkable revelation of institutionalised antisemitism on the left revealed by David Collier on his website last week. It was the reaction.

Collier is an indefatigable blogger who spends much of his life immersed in the cesspools of anti-Jewish and Israel-bashing bigotry in British institutions. His aim is to bring the epidemic of open antisemitism to the attention of the wider public. He is positively heroic in subjecting himself to the traumatic effects of wading through all this filth. But last week he took his investigations onto a different level altogether. (more…)

She Survived the Holocaust, to Die in a 2018 Hate Crime

editor 28 March 2018

By Adam Nossiter.. PARIS — An 85-year-old woman who as a child narrowly escaped France’s most notorious wartime roundup of Jews has been murdered in Paris, and the authorities are calling it a hate crime. The body of the woman, Mireille Knoll, was found on Friday (March 23, 2018) in her apartment in the city’s working-class 11th Arrondissement. She had been stabbed to death, and her body was partly burned after her attackers apparently tried to set fire to the apartment.

Palestinian textbook immortalizes Coastal Road massacre terrorist

editor 21 March 2018

By Elior Levy, Ariela Sternbach.. Dalal Mughrabi [Photo top right], who led the terror cell that murdered 38 Israelis, among them 13 children, in the 1978 attack, is often glorified and immortalized in the Palestinian Authority; new textbook for 5th graders includes entire chapter dedicated to her, romanticizing her actions. The Coastal Road massacre of 1978, when 11 terrorists hijacked a bus on the Coastal Highway and murdered 38 Israelis, including 13 children, left a deep scar on Israeli society. Palestinian society, meanwhile, glorifies the killers, particularly cell leader Dalal Mughrabi, who was killed in a fire exchange with security forces and over the years became one of the symbols of the Palestinian struggle.
