Austria is currently hosting a conference on anti-Semitism. The conference (and others like it) is a waste of time. That is because the political, academic, media and cultural elites refuse to acknowledge or accept that the surge in anti-Semitism across Europe, the UK, the United States, and elsewhere is a direct result of Islamic Jew-hatred and Muslim immigration. High levels of Muslim immigration is what have made Europe and the UK dangerous for Jews. High levels of Muslim immigration are making the United States less safe for Jews. Many Muslims have brought their hatred of Israel and of Jews to their new countries. Many Muslims are demonizing Jews who support Israel. Many Muslims (Linda Sarsour) are also spreading anti-Semitism and hatred of Israel in popular culture, politics and business.
These conferences on anti-Semitism tend to needlessly focus on white nationalists (“far-right”), despite its members having little to no influence on university campuses, politics, or culture. Furthermore, politicians will not hold Muslim leaders accountable for the vicious anti-Semitism that is often taught in mosques, college campuses, and on social media platforms, out of fear of losing Muslim votes, which in Western Europe have become significant. In addition, the cultural, media, and academic elites are afraid of being labeled as Islamophobic. Anyone who speaks out against the anti-Semitic teachings of Islam will be vilified, marginalized, and ostracized. As a result, many Muslims are allowed to engage in vicious anti-Semitic activity with near impunity. That is how vile anti-Semitic bigots such as Linda Sarsour, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar are able to ascend.
As for the diaspora Jewish groups: most of them (particularly in the U.S) are afraid and unwilling to address Islamic anti-Semitism. Instead, they encourage more Muslim immigration and vilify the pro-Israel and pro-Jewish President Trump.
“Netanyahu: Anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism are one and the same,” Arutz Sheva, November 21, 2018:
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu praised Austria’s chancellor, Sebastian Kurz, at a special conference on anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, calling the Austrian leader a “true friend” of Israel and the Jewish people.
Netanyahu spoke in a video message prepared for a conference in Vienna on anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, dubbed ‘Europe Beyond Antisemitism and Anti-Zionism – Securing Jewish life in Europe’.
Anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism “are one,” said Netanyahu. “This the first and most essential point of this conference.”
Netanyahu praised the Austrian chancellor for “taking such a strong stand against anti-Semitism. You have been unyielding in your efforts to recognize history, defend the truth, and confront anti-Semitism.”
“Today we’re experiencing a resurgence of anti-Semitism worldwide. We once again hear false and dehumanizing allegations against Jews. We see attempts to kill or harm Jews in the name of radical ideologies. And since the establishment of the State of Israel, we face a new form of anti-Semitism: vicious efforts to demonize the Jewish state and deny the Jewish people the right to self-determination in our ancestral homeland, the Land of Israel.”
Austria’s president, Alexander van der Bellen, and Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, took part in the conference.
“Today, on European streets, people are being killed again simply for being Jewish,” said EJC President Dr. Moshe Kantor. “Jewish communities in Europe are increasingly concerned about their security and pessimistic about their future.”…
