The Antisemite Test

Following on from the Antisemite Game I now present the Antisemite Test (mainly because there is a really pathetic one circulating at the moment*):



*Here is the pathetic one (I recall seeing this in the Jewish Chronicle recently - I think it was by 'comedian' David Schneider). A lot of people thought it was excellent but, especially because of point 6, it is actually a complete cop-out since it actually exonerates people like Ken Livingstone and even Naz Shah:

Maybe you could do another test about the actions of the Irgun and Lehi groups in the creation of Israel, compared to Palestinian resistance / terrorism and see how that looks.

Maybe also you could have a read about the creation of Israel.
http://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2010/10/26/the-myth-of-the-u-n-creation-of-israel/

and in light of the facts provided have another think about who is the aggressor in Palestine.

Please......having failed with physical war now you try spiritual war...

Anonymous, The Foreign Policy Journal, as opposed to Foreign Policy Magazine, is a vitriolic anti Israel and anti Semetic website featuring many Arab writers who get their facts wrong. I've dealt with them and the owner and can say firsthand that anyone who wishes to use them as a reference is most definitely in the anti semitic corner, and that would be you.

As for the creation of Israel, all anyone needs to know is that the true legal beginning of a Jewish homeland took place in 1920 at San Remo Italy, where, under International Law, the Principle Allied powers LEGALLY created a Jewish homeland.

As to who is the aggressor, spoken like a true anti Semite by the way, any logical thinking person would know that it is not the Jews. Attack after attack comes from the Palestinian side and only true anti Semites could posture anything different.

I know what side you are on Anonymous. Hiding behind your veil you are on the other side pretending to be what, neutral? I don't think so.

i am sick to death of hearing how awful Israel is. Israel was recognised as a State as late as 1948 but it did not begin then. Even if you don't go back five hundred or a thousand or two thousand or three thousand years to see our connection and our history ... in the mid-1800s the Jews were rebuilding this land.. In 1860 the population of Jerusalem was made up of more Jews than all the other religions put together. The pioneers were buying the worthless, malaria infested land and making it vital again. The Arabs who wandered through led miserable lives (see Mark Twain, Innocents Abroad). No one claimed to be a Palestinian except the Jews! The double standard applied to Israel is disgusting. Last week alone 250 more people were murdered in Syria. The liberals were silent. Israel has rescued and treated hundreds of Syrians while the liberals says nothing. This week Israeli doctors saved the life of a Palestinian baby. The liberals again were silent. Yesterday two Palestinian siblings viciously tried to stab Israeli soldiers standing at a check-point. They were overpowered, prevented from murdering the young men. I am just waiting for the liberals to speak ... I can see the headline now - brutal Israeli soldiers wound poor Palestinian youngsters.

Believing in point 8 does not make someone anti-semitic. If Jews start claiming that any criticism of Israel is somehow anti-semitic then this will actually lend support to the idea that all Jews agree 100% with Israeli government policy and the term anti-semitic loses some of its importance. Also, there are far worse anti-semitic slurs which have nothing to do with Israel such as Stephen Fry claiming that the Old Testament was written by a bloodthirsty desert tribe or even David Attenborough claiming that Biblical teaching encourages the idea of mankind destroying the natural world for its own benefit.

Jews are not claiming that any criticism of Israel is anti-Semitic. What we are stating as a fact is that total bias, misrepresentation and lies about the only democracy in the Middle East are all anti-Semitic actions. That blaming a country for defending its citizens from thousands of missile attacks is anti-Semitic. That suggesting that not enough Israelis died - because we have shelters in every building - is anti-Semitic. That demonising and delegitimising an entire country and its people is anti-Semitic.That not acknowledging the incredible contributions that this one tiny country (the size of Yorkshire) has made to the world is anti-Semitic
That changing the context by never once mentioning the lynchings, the executions, the honour killings and mutilation of women, the persecution of homosexuals, the intimidation of Christians in Gaza by the so-called good guys, the Palestinians is by default anti-Semitic. (It's also, ironically anti-Palestinian because the regular people are intimidated and brain-washed by their own vicious and corrupt leaders - the very ones the likes of Jeremy Corbyn fawn upon!)

Mr Davidson, I was wondering if you'd be able to explain why you had a picture of Sadiq Khan in your post. It seems to me that, in doing so, you are mixing the honourable act of anti- racism awareness with a libelous slur against someone who would share in the same ambition to rid anti-Semitism from this earth. I accept I might be wrong in my assertion, which is why I would deeply appreciate it if you were to explain his presence in the photo. Feel free to contact me on twitter @JMooncake, or via email at swarmengine@gmail.com.

Many Thanks

Hassan Hassan

Hassan Hassan: Sadiq Khan fails the test miserably with his long record of supporting Islamic extremists and demonisation of Israel including supporting the antisemitic boycott campaign. Just because he has toned down his rhetoric for his mayoral campaign doesn't hide what he stood for for so long.

I think you have provided proof of antisemitism. A cynical manipulation and distortion of history. You also display what Primo Levi referred to when he wrote that confusing victims with perpetrators is a sign of the negation of truth.

Palestinians are Semites. Is not Israel anti- Semitic?
