On April 17-20 Jewish experts met in Brussels (Belgium) to analyze and counter the rise of anti-Israel sentiments among the European Union nations. The meeting was sponsored by Europe’s leading pro-Israel Jewish organization, CEJI, established 20 years ago. Interestingly, CEJI, website claims that it stands for “an inclusive and democratic Europe where people can enjoy their full potential with all their diversity“. However, in practice the organization fight against criticism of Zionism, Judaism and Israel – followed by gays and lesbians rights.
Even though most of EU member countries are governed by pro-Israel governments – pro-Israel Jewish groups have tried their best to keep the hoax of so-called ‘anti-Semitism‘ alive in Europe and around the world for that matter. Last month, the powerful American pro-Israel Jewish lobby group, Anti-Defamation League (ADL), released its latest poll among ten European nations, saying that hatred toward Jews and Israel remain at “disturbingly high levels”.
ADL head, Abraham Foxman, called situation more disturbing in France where Mossad tried to raise anti-Muslim sentiments through the shooting attack at the Jewish school which killed four Jews in Toulouse. According to the poll, 45% of French still believe that French Jews are more loyal to Israel than to France.
Hungary (63%) topped hatred toward Jews and Israel followed by Spain (53%), Poland (48%), Austria (28%), Germany (21%) and UK (10%) among the ten EU countries polled.
The Israel Hasbara mob usually blame Europe’s Muslim population (2%) for the rise of anti-Israel sentiments. Norwegian Christian Zionist mass killer, Anders Behring Breivik, had also Blamed Muslims‘ growing population in Europe.
Giulio Meotti in his Op-ed published in Israeli daily YNet (April 16, 2012) has claimed that many European believe that Israel is illegitimate and must be removed from the Middle East.
Giulio Meotti admits that Jewish victims at Toulouse has failed to fuel pro-Israel support within French population. He feels that if a “survey is taken about Toulouse, it would find the Muslim perpetrator as the real victim and the victims as the real murderers (Jews, Zionists, murderers of Palestinian children, they got what they deserved)“.
However, Giulio Meotti’s ‘anti-Israel plot’ is mostly centered around German Nobel literature laureate, Guenter Wilhelm Grass, for calling Israel being the greatest threat to world peace - and not the Islamic Republic. According to Giulio, some poll, shows 84% of voters support Grass’ views on Israel.
“German public opinion loved the poem, because Grass fanned the flames of their Jew-hatred in a very comfortable way. Who’s better than the “conscience of Germany,” the former Heinrich Himmler volunteer, the most famous anti-fascist to indict the post-Holocaust Jews? In a 2001 Der Spiegel interview, Grass declared: “Israel doesn’t just need to clear out of the occupied areas. The appropriation of Palestinian territory and its Israeli settlements are also a criminal activity. That not only needs to be stopped – it also needs to be reversed. Otherwise there will be no peace“.
“According to Grass, Israel must leave not only Hebron and Beit El; it must disengage from Haifa, Tel Aviv and Nazareth as well. How many famous columnists had declared, before the Fogel massacre, that the Palestinians had the right to attack Itamar-like towns?,”wrote Giulio.
Giulio thus concludes that Grass simply wrote what most Westerners believe. Israel is illegitimate, it’s the purveyor of all ills, it’s the instigator of every type of disorder, and it therefore must be disengaged from the Middle East as soon as possible.
I hate to tell you, Giulio, your fellow Israeli Jewish writer, author, blogger and renowned jazz-player, Gilad Atzmon, also agrees with Grass 101 percent.
