Trump Bandies About Anti-Semitic Tropes In Interview With Israeli Reporter
“It used to be Israel had absolute power over Congress, and today I think it’s the exact opposite,” he [Trump] said.
Trump had been speaking to Barak Ravid, an Israeli journalist for Axios who wrote a book on Trump’s Middle Eastern policies.
“I mean, you look at The New York Times ― The New York Times hates Israel. Hates ’em. And they’re Jewish people that run The New York Times. I mean, the Sulzbergers,” [Actually the Sulzbergers are Episcopalians.]

Farrakhan Falsely Claimed the Jews were Behind the 9/11 Attacks
On October 10, 2015 Louis Farrakhan held a "Justice or Else" rally in Washington DC on the 20th anniversary of his "Million Man March" of 1995. The crowd was described as "thousands" in this LA Times story. The website Russia Today claims "tens of thousands". Pictures are unclear as people are mixing photos of 1995 with those of 2015.
Whatever the number it's disturbing to see him with such a following and such acceptability by others who joined his platform.
In March of this year  in Chicago he gave a speech/sermon that fully embraced the lie that Jews were the conspiracists that caused the 9/11 attack in New York. You might first read the account in this Zionist website The Times of Israel with suspicion, but when you see the video you realize their account is essentially accurate. Farrakhan didn't literally say "the Jews" did it, but he says there were "many Israelis and Zionist Jews in key roles in the 9/11 attacks" and mentions the Jewish owner of one of the New York buildings Larry Silverstein, etc. and claims that "many Jews received a text message telling them not to come to work on September 11". He absolves Bin Laden of all responsibility.
This was said in March of this year , apparently not in his two hours speech at the Oct. 11 event.
Farrakhan is seen as an outsider, a critic of U.S. imperialism, but he does it with a mix of bigotry. As August Bebel once said "Anti-Semitism is the socialism of the fools".
David Duke <3 Gilad Atzmon and Vice Versa
by Stanley Heller
I have done my best to ignore Gilad Atzmon for a couple years now, but I was sent material that notorious anti-Semite David Duke has a page for Gilad Atzmon articles and videos. So I took a look.
As a young man Duke was a KKK leader and in college would often strut around in a Nazi uniform. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center" Duke is "the most recognizable figure on the American radical right" and "a neo-Nazi". "His views are characterized by conspiracy theories, racism, antisemitism, and Holocaust denial"
If you think Duke has "mellowed" notice this 1/26/2015 screenshot of the bottom of Duke's Atzmon page: In the bottom right hand corner note that Duke has for sale the booklet "Jewish Concentration Camps in the Soviet Union" and Henry Ford's anti-Semitic rant "The International Jew - The World's Foremost Problem". Or hold your nose and go to his home page.
Now anybody can use good material for rotten purposes. Anti-Semites have twisted the writings of Israel Shahak and Lenni Brenner to support their racism, but has Atzmon denounced Duke for linking to his work? Far from it. He praises Duke. Here's a bit of what he wrote about Duke in April 2014.
Now there is something very interesting and it's again the first time I'm saying it. The left is devastated by David Duke for instance. He was in the KKK when he was young. But here is something quite amazing: I read him and I was shocked to find out that this guy knows more about Jewish identity than I do! How could a supposedly ‘racist’ Gentile who probably never entered a synagogue knows more than I do about Judaism? The reason is in fact very simple : he is a proud white man.
The quote is from this page from Atzmon's website. Atzmon also says this about Duke,"David Duke is a humanist because he says, 'I want to celebrate my right and you should celebrate your rights' whether you are Muslim or black or whatever. He believes that all people should celebrate their rights, this is his current philosophy."
If the Duke-Atzmon admiration society isn't enough to convince those beguiled by Atzmon's supposed support for Palestinians and his seemingly far reaching attack on Zionism, nothing will
A Final Point
In the same interview with Atzmon the interviewer a L’Armurerie talks about a man named Delaisi:
I find very interesting his theory that Hitler adamantly refused to put his country again under the dominion of the Wall Street banks (which, in his opinion, were tied to Jewry) and that for doing this he and his fellow countrymen were burnt to the ground. Some French people think that the Holocaust religion is a hysterical topic dropped in every time somebody is approaching these studies.
Instead of this disputing this Nazi justification for World War II Atzmon says:
G: There you go. The Shoa is a successful political instrument. In the name of the Jewish past we eliminate the future of France and even the West.
On the Supposed Antisemitic Cartoons
Anti-Semitic Cartoons on a Progressive Blog Adam Levick
comment by Stanley Heller
January 16, 2013. I think Levick's article is dead wrong. These cartoons are all criticisms of Israel and Israeli leaders. None of them are about Jews in general. None of them exhibit Jewish stereotyped features, etc. Is it anti-Semitic to use a Jewish star in a political cartoon when the Israeli flag has a Jewish star in it? Is it then racist to make a political cartoon with a variant of an American flag?
I don't like cartoons comparing Israel to Nazi Germany because thankfully it's not conducting itself on the level of the Nazis in the '40's (except for 1982 as it killed 17 to 20 thousand in Lebanon and carpet bombed refugee camps and massacred thousands at Sabra-Shatilla). Perhaps Israel should adopt a motto "Not as Bad as the Nazis". But while I don't like the comparisons generally and don't use those cartoons I don't see them as anti-Semitic.
Perhaps Mr. Adam Levick could save his anger for some actual outrage like the shooting in the back of the teenager in Budrus a few days ago or Cast Lead, etc. etc.
comment by Tony Greenstein
This article [by Levick -editor] is worthless. Total trash.
It may indeed wrong, exaggerated and hyperbolic to compare all Israeli actions to the Nazis but to say that such a comparison is anti-Semitic is bunk. Whilst the Zionists make repeated comparisons between their victims and political opponents and the Nazis then it is natural that some respond in kind. What was the slogan of the Zionists opposing our picket of Sodastream in Brighton? 'No Nazi pickets in Brighton' and a leaflet comparing our picket with that of the SA in Germany on April 1 1933 when the true comparison is between us and those who picketed and boycotted German goods and shops that sold them from 1933 onwards.
In fact some Zionists, a minority at the moment, but a sizeable minority, do indeed see the Palestinians as the equivalent of the Jews of Europe. 'Arabs to the Ovens' http://azvsas.blogspot.co.uk/2011/01/arabs-to-ovens.html on my blog reported how a Lubavitch magazine in Israel, Fountains of Salvation, did indeed speak of death camps for Arabs. 'Arabs to the gas chambers' has been sprayed over buildings in Hebron. The widely acclaimed (by hundreds of rabbis who defended it) book Torat HeMelech by Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira in Israel, which advocated genocide of the Palestinians and the killing of babies and children, is a Nazi-like tome.
Perhaps I should give the fool that wrote this a little test. 10 quotations and he can tell me who wrote them - Zionist or anti-Semite/Nazi. It would be interesting to see what he makes of Pinhas Rosenbluth's comparison of diaspora Jewry as 'vermin' or Klatzkin's 'hideous creatures' or Hess's comment on the importance of Jewish noses, or indeed the warm meeting of minds between the father of Jewish settlement in Israel, Arthur Ruppin and Prof. Hans Gunther, Himmler's ideological mentor.
In fact the comparison is thoroughly anti-racist, even if at times it is wrong. It compares the victims of Nazi racism to the victims of Zionist/Israeli racism. Or is the author saying there are no such comparisons? If so s/he should read my citations above. Or ask why the Law of Return is a mirror image of the Nuremburg Laws (which the Zionists welcomed) or why the State takes legislative and of course administrative steps to only allow access to 'national land' for Jews.
Israel isn't a Nazi state and it hasn't perpetrated a holocaust, though its actions have been genocidal. But that is because of political circumstances not because of etiquette.
As I said, this article is just boringly repetitious and the EUMC Monitoring Committee definition of anti-Semitism is not accepted by anyone outside the Zionist confines today. If comparisons with Nazis is anti-Semitic then Begin's description of Arafat in Beirut as akin to Hitler in his bunker, and the repeated comparisons made by Zionists are also anti-Semitic. But like any cheap propagandist the author is incapable of even the semblance of analysis.
Tony Greenstein ******************
I agree with Stan Heller and Dorothy Naor re the propriety of the cartoons equating Zionism and Nazism that you complained about.
Below is an excerpt from the January 29, 1936 Palestine Post:
“A Nazi explanation of why Zionists are favored in Germany has been given to the German press by Herr Hinkel, Commissar for Jewish Affairs in the Reich. ‘We purposely favor the Zionists culturally because they are the only Jews who have given a formal and acceptable guarantee of cooperation with the government’…. Herr Hinkel apparently refers to Dr. Georg Kareski…. Dr. Kareski is associated with the Revisionist party."
And the March 1936 issue of L'Idea Sionista, the Revisionists' Italian organ, reported on the inauguration of Betar's Maritime Squadron at Mussolini's Naval Academy on March 29, 1936.
Bibi Netanyahu proudly proclaims himself to be a disciple of Vladimir Jabotinsky, the founder of the Revisionist-Zionist movement. His father, Benzion Netanyahu, was Jabotinsky's secretary.
Today Netanyahu doesn't dare talk about Kareski and/or Mussolini's patronage of the Revisionists. But the fact is that Jabotinsky hoped to convince Mussolini to replace Britain as Zionism's Palestine Mandatory protector because he thought that Britain wasn't tough enough with the Palestinian Arabs. Now let me ask you, has Netanyahu ever criticized Jabotinsky for having sent his Betar youth to be trained by Mussolini?
No mincing words: given the above ugly facts, and Netanyahu's Gaza wars, isn't it reasonable to think that the only reason why he isn't tied in with Hitler and Mussolini is due to the fact that those two "nice guys" are dead?
Mahmoud Abbas' Holocaust Denying Dissertation
The PA President (whose term expired years ago) 1) minimized the number killed by the Nazis and 2) claimed the Zionists helped Nazis killed Jews to further the Zionist cause. When called upon it when he became PA head he said "When I wrote The Other Side…we were at war with Israel. Today I would not have made such remarks…" So apparently when you're at war it's a good idea to make up all kinds of rubbish.

(disgusting) Eisen Defends Ernest Zundel who wrote "The Hitler We Loved"
Paul Eisen has written articles sympathetic to Palestinians, but he also writes rubbish sympathetic to Holocaust deniers. Here he writes about Ernst Zundel, a man who served time in Toronto jail for Holocaust denial.
From the article "Ernst Zündel was once involved in the publication of a book called The Hitler We Loved and Why, but Ernst Zündel was not the only German who loved Hitler and is probably not the only German who still loves Hitler. Millions of Germans loved Hitler, who for twelve years impacted on them as no German has or probably ever will, and, though they never say so, must, deep down still cherish his memory. "
One would think this is "Springtime for Hitler", the farce from the satire "The Producers", but Zundel apparently believed it.
