On October 16, 2004 President Bush signed into law the Global Anti-Semitism Review Act. It establishes a special department within the U.S. State Department to monitor global anti-Semitism, reporting annually to Congress.
This is more “Hate Crimes” legislation, orchestrated by the international Jewish religious, educational, and fraternal organization, B’nai B’rith, and its Anti-Defamation League. The new “Department of Global Anti-Semitism” is designed to make critics of Israel not only into “anti-Semites” but ultimately into “domestic terrorists.”
But first, what is anti-Semitism? Simple: It is the racist belief that Jews, because of heredity, are evil, greedy, corrupting, subversive, degenerate, etc. Hitler believed this. So do the KKK and certain “Christian identity” and white supremacist groups. Such dehumanization of Jews is evil, un-Christian, un-American. On the other hand, if the actions of individual Jews, Jewish institutions, Jewish religious or secular leaders, or the nation Israel have been evil, then vehement criticism is not anti-Semitic. It is courageous and laudable. Certainly, the Biblical prophets, including Christ, engaged in vitriolic criticism of the sinful nation Israel and its false leaders. No one considers them anti-Semitic.
TWISTED DEFINITIONS OF “ANTI-SEMITISM”
However, in its “Report on Global Anti-Semitism” and “Global Anti-Semitism Report,” the U.S. State Department ignores the above perspectives. Here is a list of beliefs or activities the U.S. government now considers anti-Semitic:
1. Any assertion “that the Jewish community controls government, the media, international business and the financial world” is anti-Semitic.
2. “Strong anti-Israel sentiment” is anti-Semitic.
3. “Virulent criticism” of Israel’s leaders, past or present, is anti-Semitic. According to the State Department, anti-Semitism occurs when a swastika is portrayed in a cartoon decrying the behavior of a past or present Zionist leader. Thus, a cartoon that includes a swastika to criticize Ariel Sharon’s brutal 2002 invasion of the West Bank, raining “hell-fire” missiles on hapless Palestinian men, women and children, is anti-Semitic. Similarly, when the word “Zionazi” is used to describe Sharon’s saturation bombing in Lebanon in 1982 (killing 17,500 innocent refugees), it is also “anti-Semitic.”
4. Criticism of the Jewish religion or its religious leaders or literature (especially the Talmud and Kabbalah) is anti-Semitic.
5. Criticism of the U.S. government and Congress for being under undue influence by the Jewish-Zionist community (including AIPAC) is anti-Semitic.
6. Criticism of the Jewish-Zionist community for promoting globalism (the “New World Order”) is anti-Semitic.
7. Blaming Jewish leaders and their followers for inciting the Roman crucifixion of Christ is anti-Semitic.
8. Diminishing the “six million” figure of Holocaust victims is anti-Semitic.
9. Calling Israel a “racist” state is anti-Semitic.
10. Asserting that there exists a “Zionist Conspiracy” is anti-Semitic.
11. Claiming that Jews and their leaders created the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia is anti-Semitic.
12. Making “derogatory statements about Jewish persons” is anti-Semitic.
13. Denying spiritually disobedient Jews the biblical right to re-occupy Palestine is anti-Semitic.
14. Alleging that Mossad was behind the 9/11 attack is anti-Semitic.
ANTI-SEMITISM IS A “HATE CRIME”
In the Global Anti-Semitism Report, State Department spokespersons Ambassador Edward O’Donnell and the head of the office of global anti-Semitism, Ambassador Michael B. Kozak, defend the State Department’s definitions. O’Donnell’s statement that he wants to “end all anti-Semitism and other hate crimes” reveals that he considers anti-Semitism a hate crime. Presumably, he would like such a “crime” to be punished.
These State Department reports repeatedly equate “strong, anti-Israel sentiment” and criticism of matters Jewish with “hate.” They give no recognition to the possibility that such criticism might be sincerely motivated not by hate but by moral indignation or even love for the Jewish people.
The Report on Global Anti-Semitism repeatedly calls for passage, both nationally and internationally, of “hate crime” legislation. These laws, the brainchild of B’nai B’rith/ADL, also have as their ultimate goal making it a “hate crime” to criticize Jews, matters Jewish, or the state of Israel.
The Report on Global Anti-Semitism reeks with B’nai B’rith/ADL logic, phraseology, and evidence of their incredible worldwide organizational and statistic-gathering capacities. It contains thirty-three pages of minute documentation of “anti-Semitic incidents” in fifty-eight countries of the world, documentation which only B’nai B’rith/ADL, with its offices in more than fifty countries, could compile or even be that vitally interested in. Without a doubt, as with hate laws, this Global Anti-Semitism Review Act is their creation.
CRITICISM-FREE ZONE FOR JEWS
Thus, the Department of Anti-Semitism, applauded and advised by B’nai B’rith/ADL, is working to create a worldwide “criticism-free zone” for Jews in the “New World Order” that is coming. This report ignores whether criticisms of matters Jewish are true. What must be defended are the sensitivities of the Jewish people! Consequently, relating such unflattering realities as the anti-Christian, anti-Gentile contents of the Talmud and Kabbalah, Jewish origins of bolshevism, Jewish dominance of Hollywood and the media, Jewish control of Congress through AIPAC, Zionist atrocities and abrasiveness in the Middle East is anti-Semitic. It is “hate.” It does not matter that such facts can be easily and extensively documented, often from impeccable Jewish sources such as the Encyclopedia Judaica.
All such anti-Semitism, this report says, is a “scourge,” an “intolerable burden,” which “for an increasingly interdependent world…must be ended.”
On the other hand, according to the U.S. State Department, there does exist some possibility that “objective criticism” of Israel and its leaders can be tolerated – that is, just as long as such criticism does not “cross the line” and become “strong anti-Israel sentiment” and “virulent.” Such criticism should not “demonize” Jews, Jewish religious or political leaders, or the state of Israel.
However, what may be considered “virulence” or “demonization” by Zionists may be seen as nothing more than salty truth-telling by critics of Israel. Hypocritically, the State Department itself is not above “demonizing” strong critics of Israel in the most “virulent” terms as a “plague” and “scourge” on mankind!
TURNING “ANTI-SEMITISM” INTO “DOMESTIC TERRORISM”
The State Department’s twisted definition of anti-Semitism provides exponential opportunities to persecute Bible-believing Christians, anti-war activists, Moslems, as well as publishers and broadcasters in the years ahead. In fact, by turning “strong” criticism of the American/Zionist coalition into “anti-Semitism and other hate crimes,” the State Department opens the door to eventual characterization of those who criticize Israel as not only anti-Semites but also as “domestic terrorists.”
Here’s how it can be done:
Today, those who raise funds in America to support America’s and Israel’s terrorist enemies are arrested as “domestic terrorists.” But what if articulate Americans provided something else, potentially even more valuable to Israel’s enemies: “strong criticism” of Israel? Such could weaken Israel morally in the sight of the world, giving justification to the claims of her terrorist enemies. Should they also be punished?
As the Second World War was beginning in 1939, Charles Lindberg was publicly critical of international Jews for inveigling America into a war to destroy Hitler. Lindberg believed that Hitler should be allowed to do what he wanted to do most, move east and destroy “Jewish Communism” in Russia.
In 1944, 30 Americans, who agreed with Lindberg, were arrested for the crime of “sedition,” weakening America’s resolve in the fight against fascism. Later investigation under the Freedom of Information Act revealed that the ADL, attempting to equate criticism of international Jews with Nazism, had entirely created the FBI case.
Records revealed that the ADL was “only warming up” by pursuing sedition convictions against 30 innocent Americans. Their ultimate ambition was to imprison prominent critics of evil Jewish leadership, especially Charles Lindberg. Fortunately, ADL’s attempt to transform 30 critics of international Jews into “Nazis” failed when the judge died and the case was dissolved. Today, America and Israel are allies in the “war on terror.” Tomorrow, especially if the war on terror intensifies and America and Israel cooperate even more closely, criticism of America’s ally in the war on terrorism may be construed as “aiding and abetting the enemy.” Such “strong criticism” or anti-Semitism may be seen as not only weakening Israel, but America itself.
Turning millions of Americans into anti-Semites for criticizing Israel is thus a transition toward ADL’s ultimate goal: making such persons “enemies of the war on terror,” i.e., “domestic terrorists.”
They then can be prosecuted under Homeland Security laws.
CANADA: ALREADY MAKING “ANTI-SEMITES” INTO “DOMESTIC TERRORISTS”
In Canada, we are seeing exactly this happen. Ernst Zundel is a Holocaust revisionist who doubts that a full six million Jews were deliberately murdered by the Nazis, largely by gassing. He asserts that untold numbers of Jews in German internment camps, especially in the last years of the war, died not in gas chambers, but as a result of massive, well-documented typhus epidemics, which also killed countless Poles, Gypsies, Russians, etc. Yet in Canada, thanks to ADL/B’nai B’rith, it is a “hate crime” to lesson to any degree the six million figure of Holocaust dead, or that most of them died in gas chambers. Such diminishment is anti-Semitism, a “hate crime” punishable by harsh fines and imprisonment. Several years ago Zundel was deported from his home in Tennessee back to Canada to spend more than two years in solitary confinement in a Canadian prison. He was then deported back to his native Germany where he remains in prison.
Under what charge have Canadian authorities been holding him? You guessed it. He is a “terrorist threat!” So it will be for millions of Americans tomorrow if ADL/B’nai B’rith have their way and the Department of Anti-Semitism’s twisted definitions of anti-Semitism are allowed to stand.
The Department of Global Anti-Semitism is informing the world who the “domestic terrorists” of tomorrow will be. They are you and I.
