“If you desire to put your enemy in the wrong or even to damage his reputation, blame him for the very vice which you feel in yourself.”- Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev (1818–83).
FEBRUARY 12, 2011 - Nothing seems to have changed at all since Turgenev's time.
With just six weeks into the New Year, Jew-bashing has become more pronounced, more ignorant, and more defined. Israel and diaspora Jews are blamed for a plethora of events and issues that normally even a dim-whit, nay a lunatic, would see as incongruous.
Unfortunately, we continue to live in an age where numerous antisemites and NGOs of this world, have the UN at their disposal.
And very little is being done on an international level to contradict these maniacs. As Jews, why have we become obsessed as individuals into keeping our mouths shut, while allowing prominent journalists, such as Melanie Phillips, to write about these idiots on our behalf. Enough! What makes us so insecure? Why do we, as individuals, remain silent?
One might ask; who in their right mind would want to keep quiet when Hezbollah asserts Israel is flooding Egypt with poisoned food and girls with AIDS. Or that Egypt's Governor of southern Sinai lays the blame for recent shark attacks on Israel's intelligence agency, the Mossad. Southern Sinai Governor Abed Al-Fadij said, “We must not discount the possibility that Mossad threw the shark into the sea, in order to attack tourists who are having fun in Sharm al-Sheikh."
How about a coalition of Egyptian lawyers accusing Israel of being behind an terror attack in Alexandria that killed 22 members of the Christian Copt sect. That's what happened at midnight mass on New Year's eve, at a rally in memory of the victims, organized by the Egyptian Bar Association.
And of course, Israel is blamed for the Christian exodus (read killings) from Arab countries, according to the Bishops attending a synod, who pointed fingers at Tel Aviv's discriminatory policies. Go figure!
Were you aware that Israel's germ warfare virus programme is blamed for the world honeybee decline, because of shoddy containment at Ness-Ziona Biological Institute?
ISRAEL IS BLAMED FOR SAUDI MISOGYNY
Israel is also blamed for Saudi misogyny; for Jerusalem's rising Arab population; zero hour’s hydrological poverty; of depriving Palestinians of their daily water and of an Iranian mosque bombing.
World Zionism is blamed for Brazil’s and Argentina’s defeat in World Cup soccer. The Lancet, Britain's premier medical journal, in a study blames Palestinian wife-beating on Israel and a senior Sudanese official has laid the blame for problems in his country at the feet of the pro-Israel lobby.
Israeli radiation is blamed for the increased rates of physical birth defects and stillborn deliveries in the southern Gaza Strip. Not to be outdone, from Egypt we hear that because of Israeli agricultural carcinogenic medicine, Israeli food products and fruits exported to Egypt are drowning in chemicals, which has caused 200,000 cases of kidney failure in Upper Egypt.
Israel is also blamed for the US Armenian genocide resolution. And an America survey resulted in respondents blaming Jews for the economic crisis.
To put it succinctly: As Jews, we are currently being walked all over by those who oppose our very existence. It is time for ordinary Jews to take a stand, to be proud and to make our individual comments perfectly clear against the garbage emanating from our adversaries. For our children's sake, I say enough is enough!
