“Virtually all of the violence against Jews in Western Europe has been from the Arab [Muslim] and [broader] Muslim population—virtually all.”—Elan Carr
U.S. Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism, Elan Carr, participated in a panel discussion of Antisemitism Tuesday evening, 9/10/19, sponsored by Bnai Zion, in Manhattan, which can be viewed in its entirety here. Addressing a question posed to him which was introduced by this tweet of mine and ADL data (here; here; here) I have written about extensively, for example here, which demonstrate the alarming excess prevalence (i.e., 2 to 4.5-fold all other religious groups or agnostics, studied) of extreme Muslim Antisemitism worldwide, Elan Carr became the first such Special Envoy to openly acknowledge the global pandemic of Muslim Antisemitism.
(Moderator, Rabbi Elie Abadie): “Let me just introduce this section by saying that today (Tuesday 9/10/19) Andrew Bostom tweeted https://twitter.com/andrewbostom/status/1171393543925092352, he’s the author of The Legacy of Jihad, The Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism, Sharia Versus Freedom, –so he tweeted today that ‘The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) conference featured Sanders, Bernie Sanders, and Linda Sarsour, promoted mainstream Islamic, Al-Azhar-endorsed manual on Islamic law*, which admonishes Muslims to wage jihad on Jews and Christian.’ (*“Reliance of the Traveller,” certified by Sunni Islam’s Vatican equivalent, Al-Azhar University as conforming to the contemporary ‘practice and faith of the orthodox Sunni community.’)
So, moving into Islamic Antisemitism, the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) study survey of ~55,000 (see here) people shows—and these are the results of that study(ies), according to this question [reading index card query from the audience]—that based on agreement with (at least) 6 of all (i.e., 11) Antisemitic statements, Muslims in Western Europe exhibit 49% to 68% rates of extreme Antisemitism versus 12% to 19% (actually to 29%) amongst other (i.e., non-Muslim) populations, a 2.o to 4.5-fold times greater percentage of Antisemitism than non-Muslims in those individual countries. Another result was that extreme Antisemitism among Muslims [i.e. worldwide, overall] measures 49%, versus 24% in Christians, and 21% for atheists, and so on. And also that the most—(a curiously irritated Deborah Lipstadt interrupts) ‘What’s the question?’—Rabbi Abadie continues—the most Antisemitic countries with rates of 74% to 93% are all in the Muslim countries in the Middle East. And the last one [i.e., ADL survey result] was that 34% of Muslims show extreme Antisemitism versus 14% of the general population, which is 2.4 times more than that average, in the United States. So the question is, I know most of our history dealt with Christian Antisemitism in Europe, and South America. Now we are in an era which Islam is very important, and there is a lot of Islamic Antisemitism. So let me start with you Elan. What are we going to be doing, how are we going to thwart that threat?”
(Elan Carr): “So, first of all, there is no question that’s the case [i.e., he acknowledged the ADL findings demonstrating a disproportionate prevalence of extreme Antisemitism amongst Muslims, worldwide]. Virtually all of the violence against Jews in Western Europe has been from the Arab [Muslim] and [broader] Muslim population—virtually all. So, we cannot ignore that fact, we can’t downplay that fact. That is, we’re stuck with it, and that is something we have to acknowledge.”
