BDS ou la continuation de la Solution finale par d’autres moyens (Why do the heathen rage ? – From Judenrein to Zionistfrei, guess who holier-than-thou universities, unions, « human rights » groups and churches are targeting from among the 200 territorial disputes, from Tibet to Ukraine)

neonazisbdsPourquoi ce tumulte parmi les nations, ces vaines pensées parmi les peuples? Pourquoi les rois de la terre se soulèvent-ils et les princes se liguent-ils avec eux contre l’Éternel et contre son oint? Psaumes 2: 1-2
A secular, democratic state solution is increasingly being perceived by Palestinians and people of conscience around the world as the moral alternative to Israeli apartheid and colonial rule. Such a solution, which promises unequivocal equality in citizenship, as well as individual and communal rights, both to Palestinians (refugees included) and to Israeli Jews, is the most appropriate for ethically reconciling the ostensibly irreconcilable: the inalienable, UN-sanctioned rights of the indigenous people of Palestine to self-determination, repatriation, and equality in accordance with international law and the acquired and internationally recognized rights of Israeli Jews to coexist in the land of Palestine — as equals, not colonial masters. Omar Barghouti
When I was a dissident in the former Soviet Union, one of my regular activities was monitoring anti-Semitism, and smuggling out evidence and records of such activity to the West. I believed then that the free world, particularly after the Holocaust, would always be a staunch ally in the struggle against anti-Semitism. Unfortunately, I was wrong. (…) Over the past four years, we have witnessed a resurgence of anti- Semitic activity in the democratic world. In Europe, synagogues have been burned, rabbis have been abused in the streets, Jewish children have been physically attacked on the way to school and inside schools, and Jewish cemeteries have been desecrated. Moreover, the so-called “new anti-Semitism” poses a unique challenge. Whereas classical anti-Semitism is aimed at the Jewish people or the Jewish religion, “new anti-Semitism” is aimed at the Jewish state. Since this anti-Semitism can hide behind the veneer of legitimate criticism of Israel, it is more difficult to expose. Making the task even harder is that this hatred is advanced in the name of values most of us would consider unimpeachable, such as human rights. Nevertheless, we must be clear and outspoken in exposing the new anti-Semitism. I believe that we can apply a simple test – I call it the “3D” test – to help us distinguish legitimate criticism of Israel from anti-Semitism. The first “D” is the test of demonization. When the Jewish state is being demonized; when Israel’s actions are blown out of all sensible proportion; when comparisons are made between Israelis and Nazis and between Palestinian refugee camps and Auschwitz – this is anti- Semitism, not legitimate criticism of Israel. The second “D” is the test of double standards. When criticism of Israel is applied selectively; when Israel is singled out by the United Nations for human rights abuses while the behavior of known and major abusers, such as China, Iran, Cuba, and Syria, is ignored; when Israel’s Magen David Adom, alone among the world’s ambulance services, is denied admission to the International Red Cross – this is anti-Semitism. The third “D” is the test of delegitimization: when Israel’s fundamental right to exist is denied – alone among all peoples in the world – this too is anti-Semitism. (…) vicious anti-Semitism which expressly calls for massive terrorism and genocide against Jews, Zionists, and the State of Israel is becoming more and more commonplace across the Arab Middle East. Moreover, the borders between anti-Semitism, anti- Americanism, and anti-Westernism have become almost completely blurred. (…) There is a direct link between the laxity with which countries have responded – or not responded – to growing Arab/Islamic anti- Semitism and the sharp increase in physical and verbal attacks on Jews and Israelis globally. (…) Anti-Semitism is not a threat only to Jews. History has shown us that left unchecked, the forces behind anti-Semitism will imperil all the values and freedoms that civilization holds dear. Never again can the free world afford to sit on the sidelines when anti-Semitism dangerously emerges. Natan Sharansky
Comparé à la plupart des flambées antijuives antérieures, ce nouvel antisémitisme est moins souvent dirigé contre des Juifs en tant qu’individus. Il attaque principalement les Juifs de façon collective, l’État d’Israël et alors avec ces attaques, démarre une réaction en chaine d’attaques contre des individus juifs et des institutions juives. […] Dans le passé, les antisémites les plus dangereux étaient ceux qui voulaient rendre le monde judenrein, libre de Juifs. Aujourd’hui, les plus dangereux antisémites sont peut-être ceux qui veulent rendre le monde judenstaatrein, libre d’un état juif. Per Ahlmark (ancien vice-premier ministre suédois)
You can criticize an Israeli policy or action as having been not only a violation of human rights and humanitarian law but also, you could even say it was a war crime. It may be, as I say, distasteful to see that, or witness that, but I don’t regard that as being anti-Semitic content. I think that that’s part of what is called rigorous criticism and discourse. Where you say that Israel is an apartheid state, even then – that to me is, it’s distasteful, but it’s still within the boundaries of argument. It’s where you say, because it’s an apartheid state, it has to be dismantled – then you crossed the line into a racist argument, or an anti-Jewish argument. You’re not just criticizing, you’re not only criticizing Israeli policy or practice; you’re not only saying it has apartheid policies; you’re saying it’s a criminal apartheid state that must be dismantled. Then in my view, you’ve crossed the line. (…) Since the start of the 21st century, the world has been « witnessing a new and escalating, globalizing, virulent, and even lethal anti-Semitism, one which substitutes hate for the Jewish person with hate for the Jewish state. We had moved from the discrimination against Jews as individuals, to the discrimination against Jews as a people, to Israel as the targeted collective ‘Jew among the nations. [But] I think we’ve got to set up certain boundaries of where it does cross the line, because I’m one of those who believes strongly, not only in free speech, but also in rigorous debate, and discussion, and dialectic, and the like. If you say too easily that everything is anti-Semitic, then nothing is anti-Semitic, and we no longer can make distinctions. (…) I think it’s too simplistic to say that anti-Zionism, per se, is anti-Semitic. It may cross the line into being anti-Semitic where it ends up by saying, ‘Israel has no right to exist’, or ‘the Jewish people have no right to self determination’, or, that the Jewish people are not even a people. (…) where people single out only Israeli nationals and apply only to them the principal of universal jurisdiction … and you’re not initiating any such processes against anybody else in a world in which many war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide are being committed – then you have to question whether this is not the singling out of Israeli nationals for selective and discriminatory treatment. Irwin Cotler
Your headline in the article “Canadian MP Cotler: Calling Israel an apartheid state can be legitimate free speech“ – as well as the inappropriate juxtaposition of disparate comments – suggest that the indictment of Israel as an apartheid state can be legitimate free speech. As all of my writing, my talk at the President’s Conference and my follow up interview with Ha’aretz make clear: the indictment of Israel as an apartheid state is false, defamatory and hateful, but the right to be wrong, defamatory and hateful – however offensive it may be, can nevertheless be an exercise in free speech. Simply put, the fact that the indictment is hateful – and may cross the line into being anti-Semitic when it calls for the dismantling of the State – does not mean that we should prohibit the hateful speech to begin with. It means, as I said in the interview, that we need to engage it, expose it, rebut it and thereby “delegitimize the delegitimizers” – not prevent their delegitimizing speech to begin with. The main theme in my writings – and in the interview – was regrettably not referenced in the article itself: that the real concern is not the phenomenon of the delegitimization of Israel. That has always been with us – what is new, and particularly offensive, is the laundering of the delegitimization of Israel under all that which is good, for example: the struggle against racism, international law, human rights, and the like. The result is not only prejudicial to the State of Israel – as in the indictment of Israel as an apartheid state or the singling out of Israel for differential and discriminatory treatment in the international arena– but prejudicial to the case and cause of the struggle against racism and human rights. To label Israel an apartheid state demeans the real struggle against apartheid – in which I was honoured to be at the forefront – as much as it falsely misrepresents Israel, however one may criticize Israeli policy and practice. Irwin Cotler
L’antisionisme est le nouvel habit de l’antisémitisme. Demain, les universitaires qui boycottent Israël demanderont qu’on brûle les livres des Israéliens, puis les livres des sionistes, puis ceux des juifs. Roger Cukierman (président du CRIF, janvier 2003)
Boycotter Israël, c’est lutter pour une paix juste (…) Du Canada à l’Australie en passant par l’Afrique du Sud, les Etats-Unis, l’Amérique latine et l’Europe, c’est un mouvement international, non-violent et populaire qui se développe. Syndicats, ONG, associations, Eglises, universités, municipalités, personnalités de renommée mondiale et simples citoyens se retrouvent pour défendre un même objectif : l’application du droit. (…)  Notre combat n’est pas fondé sur le rejet d’un peuple. Il s’agit d’exercer une réelle pression sur l’Etat d’Israël, en développant un boycott économique, diplomatique, et un boycott des institutions académiques, sportives et culturelles israéliennes. Ces institutions sont en effet trop souvent utilisées par Israël pour soigner son image et mieux masquer sa politique à l’égard des Palestiniens et son mépris des règles internationales. Michel Platini, président de l’Union européenne des associations de football (UEFA), l’a compris, menaçant d’exclure l’Etat d’Israël de l’UEFA s’il continuait d’entraver le développement du sport palestinien. Desmond Tutu, archevêque sud-africain récompensé par le prix Nobel de la paix en 1984 pour son combat contre l’apartheid, s’est de son côté élevé contre la visite prochainement prévue, en Israël, de la troupe de l’Opéra du Cap. En tant que soutien actif de la stratégie BDS, Desmond Tutu mérite-t-il aussi les titres de saboteur et de naufrageur d’espoir ? A ceux qui s’inquiètent de la dégradation de l’image d’Israël et qui accusent la campagne BDS d’en être responsable, nous disons qu’Israël est le seul auteur de cette dégradation. En violant chaque jour le droit international, en commettant des actes criminels comme les bombardements massifs sur Gaza en 2008-2009 ou l’assaut sanglant contre la Flottille de la liberté, en poursuivant le blocus de Gaza, la construction de colonies et l’arrachage des oliviers, Israël ne peut susciter qu’un rejet de plus en plus fort. (…) Nous savons, fort du précédent sud-africain et de la campagne victorieuse de boycott contre le régime d’apartheid, que cette arme, loin d’être indigne, peut être noble et efficace lorsque les circonstances l’exigent. C’est le cas aujourd’hui. Nicole Kiil-Nielsen (députée européenne, Les Verts)

En tant que membres du monde de la culture, notamment du cinéma, nous sommes troublés par la décision du TIFF de réserver une place de choix à Tel Aviv et de s’être ainsi rendu complice, intentionnellement ou pas, de la machine de propagande israélienne. Nous ne visons pas les cinéastes israéliens dont les œuvres sont inscrites au programme du festival. Mais nous dénonçons l’instrumentalisation du festival, par une campagne de propagande au service d’un régime d’apartheid. Ken Loach
La présentation sélective de la façade moderne et sophistiquée de Tel-Aviv, sans égard au passé et aux réalités de l’occupation israélienne des territoires palestiniens de Cisjordanie et de Gaza, ce serait comme si on glorifiait la beauté et la vie élégante chez les communautés exclusivement blanches au Cap ou à Johannesburg pendant l’apartheid, sans reconnaître les cantons noirs de Khayelitsha et de Soweto.

Nous avons passé 48 heures dans les camps d’internement de l’armée israélienne, où des centaines de Palestiniens, raflés en pleine nuit, sont emprisonnées, les yeux bandés. José Bové (Ramallah, avril 2002)
Il faut se demander à qui profite le crime. Je dénonce tous les actes visant des lieux de culte. Mais je crois que le gouvernement israélien et ses services secrets ont intérêt à créer une certaine psychose, à faire croire qu’un climat antisémite s’est installé en France, pour mieux détourner les regards. José Bové (de retour de Ramalah, Libération, avril 2002)
Vive le Hamas, le Hamas vaincra! Patrick Farbiaz (conseiller politique de Noël Mamère, 2003)
L’université est censée être un lieu où l’on apprend à utiliser son cerveau, à penser rationnellement, à examiner les preuves, à tirer des conclusions à partir de faits avérés, à vérifier ses sources, à comparer les points de vue. Si celle d’Edimbourg ne peut former que des étudiants qui n’ont pas la moindre notion de toutes ces choses, alors l’avenir est sombre. Je n’ai aucune objection à la critique argumentée contre Israël. Mais je m’oppose à ce que des gens supposés intelligents stigmatisent l’Etat juif comme celui qui traiterait sa population de la pire façon. (…) S’il y avait eu un Etat juif dans les années 1930 (ce n’était malheureusement pas le cas), vous ne croyez pas qu’Hitler aurait décidé de le boycotter ? Dr. Denis MacEoin
En Allemagne nazie,  c’était très à la mode de rendre sa ville Judenfrei – débarrassée des juifs-. Maintenant une nouvelle mode balaie l’Europe : rendre sa ville ce que l’on pourrait appeler ‘Zionistfrei’ – débarrassée des produits et de la culture de l’État juif. À travers tout le continent des villes se déclarent ‘zones débarrassées d’Israël,’ isolant leurs citoyens de tout ce qui est produit ou culture israéliens. On y trouve de hideux échos de ce qui s’est passé il y a soixante-dix ans. Brendan O’Neill
The Zionistfrei movement isn’t really about effecting any change in the Middle East. As Leicester Councillor Mohammed Dawood admits, Israel is hardly going to be “trembling in its shoes” over the city’s boycott. Rather, the movement is about making the chattering classes in Europe feel pure and righteous, unsullied by the poisonousness of the state it’s now so fashionable to hate. Where yesteryear’s creators of Judenfrei zones saw the Jewish people as a corrupting presence, today’s lobbyists for Zionistfrei territories see the Jewish state as corrupting, as a toxic entity whose fruit and technology and books must be shunned. No, Jews aren’t being physically expelled from Europe, but they are being made to feel unwelcome. Given that most Jews feel affinity with the state of Israel, what must they think when they see parts of Europe being cleansed of all things Israeli? They must think: “My culture and my people are not wanted here.” And European Jews are voting with their feet. In the first eight months of this year, 4,566 Jews left France for Israel, more than the total number that left in 2013 (3,228). Last year a European Union survey found that 29% of Europe’s Jews had considered emigrating because they no longer feel safe. BDS is one of the ugliest political movements of our time. It is shot through with double standards, treating Israel as more wicked than any other state. It is shrill and censorious, too. Its members boo and jeer and seek to expel from apparently civilized Europe not only Israeli military leaders and politicians but even Israeli violinists and actors. Now, the demand for Zionistfrei zones is taking BDS to its terrifying conclusion, that Israel and everyone associated with it (you know who) should be shunned by respectable communities everywhere. Brendan O’Neill (Spiked)
Aujourd’hui ces campagnes de haine et ces politiques nazies sont en grande partie le fait d’universités, de syndicats, d’entreprises et de groupes hypocrites, soi-disant militant pour les « droits de l’homme », ainsi que d’autres ONG. Et, ce qui est honteux, le fait d’églises. (…) Ils prétendent tous, à tort, être « pacifiques », utiliser des « moyens économiques » pour corriger « les injustices » dans les Territoires palestiniens. Cependant, ils semblent ne jamais essayer de remédier aux torts des gouvernements corrompus et répressifs de l’Autorité palestinienne et du Hamas à Gaza, ni même d’y promouvoir une presse libre, l’état de droit ou l’élaboration d’une économie stable. Leurs véritables motivations sont démasquées. Ils se coordonnent tout simplement avec la stratégie violente des Palestiniens et des fondamentalistes musulmans en Occident, ceux qui ont refusé encore et encore de faire la paix avec Israël depuis sept décennies et, au lieu de cela, ont choisi le terrorisme. (…) L’Union européenne a signé un accord avec le Maroc, qui a une dispute territoriale avec l’Algérie, lui garantissant néanmoins le droit d’exploiter les ressources du Sahara occidental ; il n’y a eu aucune campagne de protestation. Et nous n’avons entendu aucune protestation contre la Turquie pour son occupation du nord de Chypre ou son emprisonnement de masse de dissidents, de journalistes ou d’universitaires. Non, la politique de boycott n’est pratiquée que contre l’État juif qui peut se targuer des plus hauts niveaux de liberté académique, de liberté de presse et d’égalité devant devant la loi de la planète. (…) Ils soumettent aussi les universitaires israéliens à une campagne néo-nazie « de silence » de la part d’universités sans scrupules : envoyer moins d’invitations, rejeter plus d’articles et utiliser les critères des lois de Nuremberg du Troisième Reich pour exclure les juifs de toute participation. (…) Ces néo-nazis répandent leur message dans les universités, les églises, les entreprises et les municipalités. Ils adoptent des mesures comme des pétitions d’enseignants, le harcèlement public, des menaces de poursuites légales (guerre par la loi), des manifestations devant des magasins et, souvent, juste des cris stridents, de l’intimidation, des menaces et des sit-ins. (…) Des syndicats académiques au Royaume-Uni et au Canada, allant de médecins à architectes, ont également soutenu les nouvelles Lois de Nuremberg contre Israël. Des dizaines d’artistes – notamment des musiciens et des cinéastes – ont refusé, comme les premiers nazis avant eux, de se produire en Israël ou ont annulé leurs représentations. Nombre de fonds de pension ont retiré leurs investissements d’Israël.  (…) Les lignes d’avant ou après1967 ne sont qu’un alibi pour ces nouveaux nazis. Nombre d’entre eux considèrent que l’intégralité d’Israël est illégale, immorale ou les deux à la fois – bien que des juifs vivent sur cette terre depuis trois mille ans, une partie s’appelant même la Judée. L’appétit qu’ils mettent à accuser les juifs d’avoir l’audace « d’occuper » leur propre terre historique, biblique, ne fait que révéler leur collusion avec les mensonges les plus sombres des extrémistes islamiques qui essaient de détruire les coptes chrétiens autochtones dans leur terre natale d’Égypte et les Assyriens chrétiens autochtones que l’on voit massacrer dans tout le Moyen Orient. Les Français devraient-ils être accusés « d’occuper » la Gaule ? Il suffit de voir n’importe quelle carte de « Palestine », qui recouvre l’État d’Israël tout entier : pour nombre de Palestiniens, la totalité d’Israël est une seule colonie énorme qui doit être démantelée. À la place d’Israël, ils faciliteraient la création d’un autre État arabo-islamique qui supprimera la liberté d’expression des artistes, des journalistes et des écrivains, qui chassera les chrétiens de chez eux, qui lapidera à mort les homosexuels, qui torturera les détenus en prison, qui mettra à mort des innocents voulant simplement se convertir au christianisme, qui condamnera à des coups de fouet, à la prison ou la mort ceux dont il sera allégué qu’ils ont dit quelque chose que quelqu’un pourrait considérer comme une offense faite à l’islam, qui obligera les femmes à porter le voile et à vivre à part, qui glorifiera les terroristes, qui interdira l’alcool, qui arrêtera ceux qui exprimeront des opinions impopulaires, qui encouragera une nouvelle catégorie de réfugiés musulmans : ceux qui fuiraient volontiers un régime oppressif et meurtrier. Ces néo-nazis, en guise d’arguments, avancent des slogans faux et trompeurs tels que « état d’apartheid », « occupation », « répressif », « violateur des lois internationales » (toutes choses qu’Israël n’est scrupuleusement pas). Leur but, comme celui des nazis d’origine, est de manipuler les gens et de leur instiller préjugés et haine contre Israël, et juste derrière ce subterfuge, contre tous les juifs.

    WHAT MARGINAL NGO’S ? (And what troublesome constituent elements and blurring of boundaries between calling for a boycott of products in the territories and advocating for a blanket ban of the Jewish state ?)

    « It is one thing to push back against legislation, which Israel should do and is part of the natural dialogue between countries. It is something else to combat against the efforts of marginal NGOs. Israel may be overdoing it in this respect and giving legitimacy to those that would otherwise have little impact. We must be intelligent in our approach, as the biggest success of BDS is that it has driven Israeli leaders crazy. »

    Daniel Shrek (former Israeli ambassador to France)

    « On the one hand, BDS is viewed as a way of attacking Israel without being accused of extremism, so in this sense it is a great invention by the Palestinians. On the other hand, the program is connected to the worst anti-Semitic organizations, including terrorist ones. Boycotting commerce outside of the [1967 borders] interferes with business conducted inside of them, including banking, insurance, etc… So there is a fine line between calling for a boycott of products in [the territories] and advocating for a [blanket] ban of the Jewish state. (…) the EU is the mother of the BDS, as it is globalist, anti-religious and totally devoted to the idea of peace whatever the cost may be. By contrast, Israel is a nation-state with religions undertones that must constantly defend itself and Europe cannot forgive that. I do not think that Israel can do anything to change this attitude. »

    QUELLE CONTINUATION DE LA SOLUTION FINALE PAR D’AUTRES MOYENS ? (Devinez qui réclame pour les minorités un droit illimité à tous les pays et nie sans répit son vieux pays minuscule à la plus vieille du monde ?)

    Cantaloube se moquerait-il ainsi de l’irritation des Afro-Américains aux trois lettres KKK du Klu Klux Klan ? Certainement non. Mais nous les victimes épidermiques avons maintenant l’épiderme trop blanc. Aujourd’hui trop occidentaux pour les orientaux, jadis trop métèques pour les Européens, nous valons toujours qu’on tolère l’intolérance du juif sans réagir.

    Je ne suis pas certain que tous les juifs savoureront les diableries de Cantaloube mais j’adoube : nous les juifs, que nous soyons israéliens, américains ou italiens, nous n’aimons pas les antisémites. L’Histoire, il faut dire, nous a appris que lorsqu’on nous menace d’extermination, nous devons prendre la menace au sérieux.

    Dois-je être étonné que Cantaloube s’en étonne, et nous recycle la cantate du youde ? Pas vraiment.

    SURPRISE ! (Embodiment of evil: Presence of BDS groups and faculty boycotters shown to be strongest predictors of antisemitism on US campuses)

    99% of schools with one or more active anti-Zionist groups had one or more incidents of antisemitic activity, whereas only 16% of schools with no active anti-Zionist student group had incidents of overall anti-Semitic activity. 57% of the schools with one or more active anti-Zionist student groups had one or more incidents that targeted Jewish students for harm, 91% of the schools with one or more active anti-Zionist groups showed evidence of antisemitic expression, and 80% of schools with one or more active anti-Zionist groups showed evidence of BDS activity.

    81% of the schools with one or more faculty boycotters had one or more incidents of overall antisemitic activity, whereas only 17% of schools with no faculty boycotters had incidents of antisemitic activity. 100% of the 33 schools with 10 or more faculty boycotters had one or more incidents of antisemitic activity. 46% of schools with faculty boycotters showed evidence of targeting Jewish students for harm, 74% of schools with faculty boycotters showed evidence of antisemitic expression, and 62% of schools with faculty boycotters showed evidence of BDS activity.

    56% of schools with evidence of BDS activity had one or more incidents that targeted Jewish students for harm, whereas of the schools with no evidence of BDS activity, only 23% had incidents targeting Jewish students. In fact, schools with more incidents of BDS activity tended to have more incidents that targeted Jewish students for harm. 95% of schools with BDS activity had one or more incidents of antisemitic expression, whereas of the schools with no evidence of BDS activity, only 33% had antisemitic expression. Schools with more incidents of BDS activity tended to have more incidents of antisemitic expression.

    The presence of anti-Zionist student groups and the number of faculty who have publicly endorsed an academic boycott of Israel are, in combination, very strong predictors of overall antisemitic activity. BDS activity is the strongest predictor of incidents that target Jewish students for harm, the factor with the most deleterious effect on campus climate.

    Anti-Zionism permeates and is inseparable from contemporary campus antisemitism.

    More than 150 talks, rallies, statements, films, displays, agitprop, op-eds and social media posts contained expression that demonized or delegitimized Israel by drawing on classic antisdemitic tropes of Jewish evil, power and mendacity. On more than 60 campuses, Israel was vilified with false accusations of racism, ethnic cleansing, genocide, crimes against humanity, brutal slaughter, state-sponsored terrorism, theft of land, water and human organs, settler-colonialism, apartheid, fascism, white supremacy and Nazism. A speaker at one school called Israel “the embodiment of evil.”
    At one-quarter of the schools, speakers and writers were explicit about their anti-Zionist stance, indicating that they were not simply critical of Israel’s policies but opposed to the very existence of the Jewish state. In fact, at many schools there was a clear conflation of classic antisemitic and anti-Zionist expression, indicating that the speaker or writer did not distinguish between the two.
    A majority of incidents that threatened the safety or well-being of Jewish students or violated their civil rights were linked to Israel or Zionism…

    Lara Kollab (Twitter, May 4 2013)

    « I visited Israel and the Palestinian Territories every summer throughout my adolescent years. I became incensed at the suffering of the Palestinians under the Israeli occupation. The injustice and brutality of the occupation continues to concern me, and I believe every champion of human rights owes it to humanity to work towards a just and peaceful resolution of this crisis.Like many young people lacking life experience, I expressed myself by making insensitive remarks and statements of passion devoid of thought, not realizing the harm and offense these words would cause.These posts were made years before I was accepted into medical school, when I was a naïve, and impressionable girl barely out of high school. I matured into a young adult during the years I attended college and medical school, and adopted strong values of inclusion, tolerance and humanity. I have learned from this experience and am sorry for the pain I have caused. I pray that the Jewish community will understand and forgive me.

    Touro College is appalled by the anti-Semitic comments reportedly made by Lara Kollab, a graduate of the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine. The mission of Touro College is to educate, perpetuate and enrich the historic Jewish tradition of tolerance and dignity.

    We are shocked that one of our graduates would voice statements that are antithetical to Touro and to the physicians’ Hippocratic Oath. We have received word from the Cleveland Clinic where Dr. Kollab was last affiliated and learned that she is no longer employed there.

    It isn’t surprising that a devout and observant Muslim would have a seething hatred of Jews. The Qur’an tells Muslims that the Jews are the strongest of all people in enmity toward them (5:82), are accursed by Allah (9:30), and are always scheming against the Muslims (2:79; 3:75-3:78, 3:181, etc.). There is a great deal more anti-Semitic material in the Qur’an and Sunnah. These and other Qur’anic passages likely provide some insight into Kollab’s mindset.

    As heartfelt and sincere as this may seem, it is noteworthy that Kollab never saw fit to say anything like it until her hate-filled tweets came to light. If she really had this change of heart, why didn’t she delete her old tweets and apologize for them before Canary Mission found them? Her apology has the look of damage control rather than a genuine change of heart. (…) If Lara Kollab had been a Jewish or Christian (or Hindu, or Buddhist) doctor who wrote about giving Muslims the wrong medication, would there be any question about revoking her medical license?

    The Cleveland Clinic may require a check of prospective hires’ social media before hiring them, after the group Canary Mission flagged Dr. Lara Kollab’s toxic social-media views, apparently causing her ouster. A clinic spokesperson told The Plain Dealer’s Ginger Christ that, while hiring managers are not currently required to review a potential employee’s social media history, the system is discussing whether to do that. Clinic spokeswoman Eileen Sheil told the Cleveland Jewish News that one reason it’s not required now is because of the difficulty of verifying and checking social media accounts. Kollab was a supervised first-year resident at the Cleveland Clinic from July to September 2018. Six years earlier, in 2012, according to Canary Mission, which tracks anti-Semitic statements on college campuses, she tweeted that she’d “purposely give all the yahood the wrong meds.” Yahood derives from the Arabic word for Jews.

    THESE VIEWS ARE NOT MY OWN (Disclaimer: US BDS activist who posted interview of a Palestinian activist saying he hates Hamas more than Israel and spills beans on Hamas tactics confirms that these were her guest’s views not her own)

    EQUAL RIGHTS FOR PALESTINIANS (Yes, but which ones ? The Gaza ones under Hamas corrupt, terrorist rule ? Or the other ones under incompetent, election-free PLO rule ?)

    The ambiguous bus ad will run for four weeks, according to a SeaMAC press release. The ad includes the slogan “Stop Anti-Boycott Legislation” and features a list of historic boycotts, including the Boston Tea Party, segregated buses in Montgomery in 1956, and South Africa’s apartheid regime.

    “Advocates for Israel’s apartheid are trying to persuade state and national legislatures to outlaw the right to boycott against social injustice in Israel,” said Edward Mast, volunteer board member of SeaMAC. Of course, Israel does not have an apartheid system — the Arab member of the Supreme Court would never approve of it, nor would the thousands of Arab students in Israel’s universities, thousands of Arab doctors and lawyers, and Israeli Arabs from all walks of life who participate in a free Israeli society. It’s not a problem-free society, but compared to the neighborhood it is pretty impressive.

    Mast, however, sees attempts to seek legal means of stopping his campaign of lies as an “attack on free speech … one more example of demanding special treatment for the State of Israel.”

    SeaMAC ran the slogan “Boycott Israel Until Palestinians Have Equal Rights” on buses in Washington, D.C. and three other cities in 2015, but the same ad was taken off a billboard in Chicago. in early 2016. SeaMAC has also been blocked from running anti-Israel bus ads in Seattle, Washington.
