Muslim Antisemitism—CAEF Bulletin, May 15, 2023

On May 14, 1948 Prime Minister Of Israel David Ben Gurion rose before the Jewish People's Council to declare the establishment of the State of Israel. Listen here


Are We Ignoring a Major Source of Antisemitism?

Matthew Hausman, published an article in Israel National News (online) in November 2013, which well describes what we are seeing today, so why is antisemitism being ignored? Titled, “All Hatreds are Evil, But One is More Evil than Others,” Hausman points out “The alarming incidence of violence against Jews in Europe, of hate-speech on college campuses across North America, and of “death to Israel” chants from around the Islamic world shows that anti-Semitism is flourishing in the twenty-first century. Often called the “Oldest Hatred,” anti-Semitism (sic) is perhaps the only prejudice that is acceptable in polite company.”

“It is enabled by a United Nations that heaps scorn on Israel for imagined offenses while ignoring real human rights abuses that occur throughout the Arab world, including the slaughter of non-Muslims in Africa, the persecution of Copts in Egypt, and the waging of jihad against Christians in the Mideast. It is also fostered by progressives who belittle Israel’s right to exist, politicians who seek rapprochement with Islamist regimes, and journalists who employ historical revisionism to blame victims instead of perpetrators.”

Matthew M. Hausman is a trial attorney and writer who lives and works in Connecticut. A former journalist, Mr. Hausman continues to write on a variety of topics, including science, health and medicine, Jewish issues, and foreign affairs, and has been a legal affairs columnist for a number of publications.


Twitter Knows

Here are few recent tweets to help one understand the ‘misery’ of the Nabka that the Palestinian Arabs claim they experienced.

Gary Katz tells us that, “‘Nakba’ was coined by Constantin Zureiq, a Lebanese professor of history at American University in Beirut, in '48. He used it in the context of Arabs bringing disaster upon THEMSELVES, by starting a war with Israel. It's been misused to malign Israel, ever since.”

One Twitter respondent, Tesla Doc, noted:

Not exactly. The disaster wasn’t STARTING a war— that was worthy of praise and pride. The disaster was LOSING the war—failing to annihilate an opponent they deemed not even worthy of fighting: the Jews. Today, it’s been whitewashed to make them seem the victims. Detail here:

Islamo-supremacism remains prevalent, even amongst the defeated "Palestinian" population & other Arabs, evidenced by their squawking at having to submit to checkpoints manned by formerly dhimmi Jews. Or their objections to Jews visiting the Temple Mount, as if that harms them somehow.

What was the Real Nakba? Ask the Elder of Ziyon

Since Israel won the War of Independence, initiated by 5 Arab Armies, wishing to destroy the fledgling country and kill its Jewish inhabitants, prevent Jewish immigration, and conquer the territory which collectively they did not own, had not developed and largely ignored until Jews started to arrive post WWII. Much has been exaggerated and mis-stated by Arab leaders, particularly the Palestinian Arab leaders, and today it is unfortunately, contaminated history and propagating lies, especially among pro-Palestinian NGOs, and apologists, left wing organizations, and lazy journalists. Consider some facts, presented below in an article by the Elder of Ziyon on May 10th. We highly recommend his blog.

There were 65,000 Arabs in Haifa before the Battle for Haifa in 1948. After the Haganah won, the Arab leaders fled and the remainder were pressured to leave by the Arab Higher Committee.

It wasn't the Jews who forced them out. In fact, the Jews pleaded with the Arabs to stay in Haifa. Nearly all of the Arabs left anyway, leaving no infrastructure for those who remained. The flight was during Passover, but the Haifa rabbinical leaders gave permission for Jews to bake bread for the Arabs since they had no bakeries left of their own. (If you know Jewish law and how strict it is against owning any leavened products on Passover, let alone baking them in your own shop, this is an incredible and unprecedented dispensation.)

Only 4,000 Arabs remained in Haifa after the breakdown of their community. Read the full article.


The Right Decision taken by UK and US

As reported on Israel National News, May 10th, 2023, Nakba day is a day of Jew hatred. This year, the global organization that is supposed to ensure, Never Again means Never Again, is adding to its anti-Israel resolutions and antisemitic agencies to lie and vilify the Jewish people How can it be that the United Nations has now adopted the lie of a Nabka, more recently interpreted as a massacre of Arabs by Jews in establishing Israel. This is a contradiction to the very raison d’etre for the UN, and almost hard to believe, but for the fact that the agenda of this once noble organization has been hijacked.

Read about the UN Resolution to commemorate the “Nakba.”

Read The Jerusalem Post report, May 8th, 2023 on the response from Israel, calling for a boycott, and the UK and US announcement that they will boycott this commemoration at the UN. Where is Canada?!!

This hateful rally/protest/hate fest occurs annually in Canada and really should be banned. How might we stop it in Canada? A rally is scheduled for May 13th in Toronto and it will no doubt be a day of lies, hatred and calls for violence against Israel. We collectively failed to have Al Quds Day canceled in Toronto, and messages of hate and incitement were recorded. We failed to have the Nakba Day rally on May 7th in Ottawa, canceled or condemned, and yet our local and provincial politicians were made aware of the unabashed incitement.

American House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) blocked plans by Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) to hold an event at the Capitol Building, partnering with anti-Israel organizations, aligned to condemn the establishment of the Jewish state as a "catastrophe."

McCarthy tweeted on Tuesday that the "Nakba Day" event - referring to the Arabic term for "disaster" - would not take place, replacing it with a bipartisan gathering marking the 75th anniversary of the US-Israel relationship.

He stated, "This event in the US Capitol is canceled. Instead, I will host a bipartisan discussion to honor the 75th anniversary of the US-Israel relationship."


Richard Sherman, a regular contributor provided this important summary of contemporaneous news produced by Arab journalists and governments explaining that the defeat of the Arab attackers was a tragedy of their own making.

“Even a cursory glance at contemporaneous Arab and Muslim newspapers and other Muslim media makes clear that it was Arab leaders in 1947/1948 who commanded the local Arab population in Mandatory Palestine to “flee” their homes in anticipation of the genocide of the Jews — and an Arab populace who willingly obeyed that command.

On April 3, 1949 the Near East Arabic Broadcasting Station reported: “It must not be forgotten that the Arab Higher Committee encouraged the refugees’ flight from their homes in Jaffa, Haifa and Jerusalem”. ("The Palestinian Delusion, The Catastrophic History of the Middle East Peace Process", Robert Spencer, 2019, page 83)

On October 12, 1963 the Egyptian daily “Akbar el Yom” reported that : “The 15th May, 1948 arrived…On that day the Mufti of Jerusalem ( the Grand Mufti Amin al-Husseini) appealed to the Arabs of Palestine to leave the country, because the Arab armies were about to enter and fight in their stead”. ("The Palestinian Delusion", ibid, page 83)

On April 9, 1953 the Jordanian daily “Al Urdan” reported: “For the flight and fall of the other villages it is our leaders who are responsible because of their dissemination of rumours exaggerating Jewish crimes and describing them as atrocities in order to inflame the Arabs..By spreading rumours of Jewish atrocities, killings of women and children etc., they instilled fear and terror in the hearts of the Arabs in Palestine, until they fled leaving their homes and properties to the enemy”. ("The Palestinian Delusion", ibid, page 83)

Can the “The Whole World” Be Wrong?, Lethal Journalism, Antisemitism and Global Jihad

This book provides a brilliant analysis of where the deep level of antisemitism is coming from, how and who planted it, spread it, reinforced it, and continues to heavily invest in it. Dr. Richard Landes, historian, professor, author, devoted many years to the in depth and well referenced study of several specific instances of Arab media lies, Palestinian Arab faked events, the ongoing media hoaxes, and how they influenced the global journalistic world, and beyond. Watch CAEF webinar with Dr. Landes. On May 9th, CAEF had the honour of hosting a small private event with Dr. Landes, creating a conversation “among friends,” at which we were delighted as well as horrified by the information shared; Dr. Landes presents lucidly, and compellingly on the global influence of “Pallywood”, ie Palestinian Arab lies and fakery, and the well-funded, anti-Zionist support this engenders, as well as the fear that Western media has if it should report the truth. In other words, the Western press, broadcasters, pundits, and front-line journalists are held hostage to the perpetual lies, thus securing access for their stories. One has to ask - why is truth negotiable? What is the reward that comes from negating evidence? Is fear a factor in any other war-reporting, such that the enemies story is promoted, while one’s own country or allies are denigrated?

This Mother Deserves Zero Honour, but is a Hero to the Terrorists

As quoted on Israel Unwired, from a tweet by MEMRI, The mother of the Hamas terrorist who killed Lucy, Maia, and Rina Dee said the following about the Jewish people: “The Jews are our enemies. We should fight them, devour them with our teeth.”

The writer Micha Gefen, notes that “With parents and examples like this, it’s no wonder there is a flourishing hate filled jihadist culture thriving in Judea and Samaria and beyond within the Arab Muslim world.”
