Criticizing Israel May Be Deemed As Crime

So, do you all see what’s happening here? The “old” Anti-Semitism, you remember it don’t you? I like to call it the “real” Anti-Semitism, it existed, and today it still exists to some extent, just like Anti-Catholic, Anti-Muslim, Anti-Black, Anti-Irish, Anti-Hispanic, etc, etc, etc still exist in racially and ethnically motivated haters. However, the Zionists, who took over Judaism and “changed” it to a neocon rightwing violent nationalist movement akin to Al-Qaeda, are now attempting to include criticism of both the State of Israel and Zionism as the “new” Anti-Semitism.” And they are quietly trying to get the laws changed to reflect this.

Here are my thoughts; Why only them? Where are the laws that outlaw criticism of America’s government (8 years of Bush Bashing) or American’s for re-electing the moron and going into Iraq under false pretences and a bare faced lie to the world? Or what about America's little war crimes, they aren't censored. I mean just surf the web for millions of Anti-American Government policy articles, blogs and comments. You see where I’m going with this?

It’s called “Free Speech” the ability for the public to express opinions about world events, world governments, their own government’s actions, or in-actions. And this is one of the most important rights the people of this world have, it must not be legislated away by Zionist owned, bought and paid for government officials. The article I am including today is about what’s happening in America, but rest assured it’s taking place quietly all over the world in the most outspoken countries that “claim” freedom of speech as a cornerstone, a democratic right to be fought for and protected. But, bit by bit it is becoming eroded by continous well funded attempts to weaken those rights from Israeli supported Zionists.

“Free Speech” is their enemy, more so than Muslims, Hamas, or Iran’s non-existent nuclear Weapons. Free Speech is where the battle lines are drawn now. It is our blogs and our websites and our newspapers and our television programs like the recent “Investigating the Israeli Lobby in Britain” that most threatens Israel’s plans of continued genocide of Arabs and Muslims, of expanding through illegal land grabs, of torture, internment, beatings, house evictions, land grabbing, burning fields and olive trees, tunnelling under Al Aqsa, invading Al Aqsa, quietly taking over the whole of Jerusalem and most of the West Bank. It’s like the scene from the Wizard of Oz; pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. But we are paying attention and the attention is what will ultimately force Israel into becoming somewhat controlled. It is the “free speech factor” that has the most effect on Israel, and it must be protected by all of us.

This recent Zionist “trend” of linking Anti-Semitism with criticizing Israel, its soldiers, its actions and its policies in our OWN countries must be reversed. Human nature is to not believe such a thing cannot happen, that Israel cannot take away our rights to free speech. People will say this is impossible, that our rights to free speech cannot be taken from us by some evil dictators with nefarious intentions. To this kind of thinking I can only point to history, remember Hitler……….For if Israel gets it’s way, we will all be mushrooms very soon, living in the dark and being fed bullshit. Now here’s today’s article By Stephen Lendman on this very same subject:

On January 9, the House, by a 390 - 5 vote, passed HR 34 "Recognizing Israel's right to defend itself against attacks from Gaza, reaffirming the United States' strong support for Israel, and supporting the Israeli-Palestinian (no peace) peace process."
Then on October 28, Obama signed the expanded 2009 Hate Crimes Prevention Act, some call a stealth war on free expression and civil liberties

Also consider events in Canada, initiated by a body called the Canadian Parliamentary Coalition to Combat Antisemitism (CPCCA), a voluntary association of 22 MPs investigating anti-semitism because, it says:

Its "extent and severity is widely regarded as at its worst level since the end of the Second World War," despite contrary evidence and much to show how Israel twists opposition to Zionism and its international law violations to be an attack on Jews. On October 29, in fact, Reuters reported that:

"Anti-Semitic attitudes in the United States are at a historic low, with 12 percent of Americans prejudiced toward Jews, an Anti-Defamation League (ADL) survey found" based on polling done from September 26 - October 4 with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8%.

ADL said the level of anti-Semitism matched 1998's as the lowest in the poll's 45-year history. Yet in his 2003 book, "Never Again? The Threat Of The New Anti-Semitism," national director, Abraham Foxman, said he's:

"convinced we currently face as great a threat to the safety of the Jewish people as the one we faced in the 1930s - if not a greater one," contradicted by Cato Institute research fellow Leon Hadar (writing in the January 2004 Chronicles) that public opinion polls "indicate anti-Semitism (both its racial and religious versions) has been in steep decline in most of Western Europe...."

The result gets bodies like CPCCA to exploit it, with disturbing implications of where this may lead, including calling opposition to Zionism and Israeli crimes anti-Semitism, and criminalizing them at a time the global BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement is gaining traction in the wake of Operation Cast Lead and 42 years of military occupation.

Its web site asks: "What is the new anti-semitism," saying:
"Anti-semitism is an age-old phenomenon, yet it is always re-invented and manifested in different ways. (my note here: They are re-inventing it to fit their current needs)

For example, while accusations of blood libel are still being made against the Jewish people, instead they are being directed against the State of Israel, such that anti-Zionism is being used as a cover for anti-semitism."

If so, government repression will follow with harsh police state measures because when powerful people fear losing what's taken them decades to achieve, they'll do anything to defend it, including criminalizing protected speech, dissent, and whatever threatens their privilege or important allies, none more valued than Israel.

There is an old saying that goes something like this, " If you want to know who the real rulers of your society, just ask yourself who it is you are not aloud to criticize." Thanks for the post.
