Muslim AntisemitismMuslim and Arab Antisemitism is a Trojan Horse designed to undermine the West's belief in its own values. Islam is winning this war at the moment because Europe is cooperating.
The Wiesenthal Center has recently published data on antisemitism over
the European Internet; reports are once more being received about
violence against Jews in Europe and in Russia; the Knesset's Aliyah and
Absorption Committee is also discussing antisemitism in Europe.
Until the collapse of the Oslo process, Israel had never grappled with Arab antisemitism in order not to ruin chances for peace. It was a combination of wishful thinking, lack of desire to properly face up to unpleasant facts and misplaced political considerations.
In a study that I made, I found a plethora of examples of the connection
made between the Koran and "Mein Kampf" in the Arab media, whose
influence over millions of Muslim households is well known. Judaism is
often presented as evil, immoral and with a lust for intrigue and Israel
and the Zionists as Nazis, racists, criminals and land grabbers engaged
in "ethnic cleansing".
Arab governments are doing nothing against these fabrications, and in
essence legitimize them in order to protect themselves from the wrath of
their own embittered citizens, deprived of democracy, freedom of speech
and basic human rights.
This "Semitic" antisemitism is especially threatening when it is on a
mission from Allah, and the 1979 revolution in Iran against the "Great
Devil" (America and the "Crusader" West) and the "Jewish-Zionist Devil"
bears witness to this.
The annihilation of Israel is the precursor to a successful Jihad, as
was Hitler's war against the Jews, which is also viewed as the opening
salvo in gaining world domination.
Arab and Muslim antisemitism is the Trojan Horse designed to undermine the West's belief in its own values. Islam is at present winning this war because Europe is cooperating - because of its lust for oil, because of electoral considerations with the increased Muslim populations in their countries, because of past colonialist "sins" and because of the naive belief that the "weak" is always right. But the West must not sacrifice Israel on any altar of appeasement.
Europe is liable to find itself once more entrapped in a complex of partners in destructive crime, and Israel has not yet begun to relate to this serious problem through a coherent strategic policy, frequently playing into the enemy's hands. Both of them - Europe and Israel - must change their ways.
