He must be off his head Sergy. He obviously hasn’t bothered to read any press recently. 4000 rockets fired into Israel in the space of a month. There is also the little matter of suicide bombers. I do hope that Yossi has got it right. :?

Unlikely exodus: the Jews leaving Britain to start a new life in Israel

· Biggest single migration of westerners since 1948
· Anti-semitism and desire for community blamed

Ilan Benjamin, his wife, Sharon, and their two children, a boy aged eight and a six-year-old girl, are exchanging Liverpool for Hadera, a town which was hit by Hizbullah rockets a week ago during the month long conflict.


Among the migrants who have already gone to Israel this year are seven Britons who have joined the "Garin Tsabar" programme which recruits foreign Jews into the Israeli Defence Forces.

Mark Simbler, 24, who worked for his family's business while in Britain, will begin military training in November. He said: "I know from Israeli friends that going into the army is the best way of integrating into society. I want to know that I am giving back to the society that is taking me in."

Britain's rising trend of anti-semitic incidents hit a new high in 2004, with 532. Last year, 455 incidents were recorded by the Community Security Trust, which safeguards Jews in Britain. But although some departing Jews say media coverage is anti-semitic, the consensus is that Jews are safe and largely prosperous. This exodus is not the product of fear.

"We've walked to the synagogue and had things thrown at us from cars, but I wouldn't say anti-semitism is a factor," said Mr Benjamin. "Everything we've planned has been positive because we're that kind of family."

Sorry i am anti israel not anti Judaism. You are free to be whatever religion you care for around me but yes if he came out with a hardline pro-Israeli argument around me then he would face opposition, We (the British) made some hienous errors in supporting an Israeli state with no holds barred. I accept teh Jewish have a right to lands where they can control their own government but not at the expense of another race/state.

I am not anti-semitic, Im just opposed to the present acts of the state of Israel. I am not opposed to the state of Israel only the manner in which they carry out their actions.

Far to pissed to carry on a conversation over this this evening, but will defend my standpoint at leisure tomorrow

In absolute numbers, Great Britain is today second only to France in serious anti-Semitic incidents among European countries. The hostile climate of opinion has been accompanied by an increase in violent assaults in the last two years. The number of synagogue desecrations has also soared, as well as serious attacks in the London neighborhood of Finsbury Park, and in the cities of Swansea and Edinburgh. A near-tripling in anti-Semitic incidents in British schools prompted the National Union of Teachers to issue new guidelines in July 2003 for combating anti-Semitism. There were also acts of vandalism in the months following the American invasion of Iraq, such as the desecration of a Jewish cemetery in the East End of London, where more than 400 graves were smashed. Last June, particularly ugly desecrations took place in Manchester and London cemeteries.

The CST believes that the findings of the survey support the conclusion that the anti-Zionist propaganda campaign in Britain by pro-Palestinian activists has afforded widespread legitimization to anti-Semitism.

Following that post I should possibly justify my position.

I do not petrol bomb Jews or their places of worship, But if a pro-Israeli were to come hammer and tongs at me supporting the right of Israel to attack its neighbours I would query their motives and justification.
 
#7
Jewish people don't half have a victim complex.

I think most people are anti-isreali, and anti-us because they beleive everything they see on BBC news, I dont think where going to see gas chambers built in the UK anytime soon.

Worse stuff happens to school kids here in Nottingham every day whatever their race/religion than the stuff in that list.

Suppose that I would be born in the UK and for some reasons decide to settle in Russia. What would I say on the arrival?

First of all, great thanks for British people, thanks for bread made by British baker, thanks to British teachers that taught me... I would say that Britain is in my heart forever.

Im not opposed to the idea of an Israeli nation state! But having read "The holocaust Industry" I find the nature of Jewish Zionism to be entirely self serving!

My Ex girlfriends father had been living in Haifa as an Arab until 1949 he left with his parents and returned to find people of his generation supporting the idea of co inhabitance but the younger generation fiercely opposed to any Arab entering Israeli territory (forgetting the lands history) Equally his Wife (a Jew) had left Israel because she couldnt bear to see the ghettoisation and and resentment shown toward Hews during WWII shown to Arabs in her own nation.

"The holocaust Industry" by Norman Finkelstein

Norman Finkelstein's Fraudulent Scholarship


“Norman Finkelstein [is] a writer celebrated by neo-Nazi groups for his Holocaust revisionism and comparisons of Israel to Nazi Germany.”
Marc Fisher,

“Campus Should Cultivate Its Seeds of Debate,”

Washington Post, December 3, 2002


“[Because of Finkelstein’s The Holocaust Industry] I feel like a kid in a candy store… Finkelstein is a Jewish David Irving.” [Irving is the notorious Holocaust denier who claims that Hitler was “the Jews’ greatest friend.”]

Intended to be a compliment by

Ingrid Rimland, wife of neo-Nazi and Holocaust denier Ernst Zuendel,

Eds. Martin Dietzsch and Alfred Schobert

“This book is, in a word, an ideological fanatic’s view…by a writer so reckless and ruthless in his attacks... [His theory is] both irrational and insidious…an international Jewish conspiracy verges on paranoia and would serve anti-Semites…. [Finkelstein] combines an old-hat 1960's view of Israel as the outpost of American imperialism with a novel variation on the anti-Semitic forgery, ''The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,'' which warned of a Jewish conspiracy to take over the world…. [A] series of vague, undocumented and contradictory assertions…. There is something sad in this warping of intelligence, and in this perversion of moral indignation. There is also something indecent about it, something juvenile, self-righteous, arrogant and stupid.”
Omer Bartov, “A Tale of Two Holocausts,”

New York Times, August 6, 2000, p. 8


Norman Finkelstein's Fraudulent Scholarship

Anti-Zionists and anti-Semites often reference Finkelstein’s books despite the fact that they are marred by factual inaccuracies, omissions and selective mention of fact. Much of his work is seemingly shaped by his antagonism toward the Jewish establishment and his avowed anti-Zionism. Thus, he routinely accuses pro-Israel writers of being “frauds” and “plagiarists,” and labels their work “hoaxes.”
Flawed Book

Just as inaccurate as the Holocaust Industry is Finkelstein’s book Image and Reality of the Israel-Palestine Conflict. Dedicated to the proposition that Israel and Zionism are illegitimate, the book relies largely on anti-Israeli secondary sources and virtually ignores contrary evidence.

For example, Finkelstein’s chapter “Born of War, Not by Design,” about the 1948 Palestinian refugees, relies almost exclusively on Benny Morris’s book The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem, which has been seriously challenged by mainstream historians for selectively using Israeli archival material. Finkelstein relies on information found in The Birth, but often distorts already questionable material. For example, Morris claims in one of his endnotes that Ben-Gurion said:

[a return] is out of the question until we sit together beside a [peace conference] table...and they will respect us to the degree that we respect them and I doubt whether they deserve respect as we do. Because, nonetheless, we did not flee en masse. [And] so far no Arab Einstein has arisen and [they] have not created what we have built in this country and [they] have not fought as we are fighting...We are dealing with a collective murderer.

Rather than checking the original source, Finkelstein distorts the secondary source. In order to demonstrate Ben-Gurion’s “extreme” “racis[ism],” he shortens Morris’s citation to read, “Arabs were not entitled to the same respect accorded to Jews because ‘so far no Arab Einstein has arisen...We are dealing with a collective murderer.’ ”

Benny Morris himself has long been critical of Finkelstein’s scholarly research as it relates to his [Morris’s] work. He criticizes Finkelstein for “selectively quot[ing]” from his book and for not knowing “anything ...beyond what is found” in his books. His sources, according to Morris, are “dubious,” and he adds that Finkelstein fails to marshal “sources or materials from elsewhere that could serve to contradict my findings” (Journal of Palestine Studies, Autumn 1991). According to Morris, “for Finkelstein the only good Israeli is an evil Israeli.”

Is that all you can come up with? How about some end results, those stats tell nothing. Try spending a few nights in Brixton. There is some fun going on there, particularly if you are not Afro Caribbean. Wake up and get a life!

Perhaps a more useful figure would be the mean number of "anti-semitic" (and I use the term loosely- a burglary of a Jewish school has many other possible motives behind it other than anti-semitism) attacks per member of the Jewish community. I dare say that the 10,000 Jews that remain in Austria experience worse and that Afghanistan's "only Jew in the village" has a slightly rougher time of it than your average Spurs fan.

Here's your answer:
http://www.tau.ac.il/Anti-Semitism/asw2005/uk.htm

Provides a bit of perspective, I think. No hard numbers regarding ethnicity of the attackers, so I won't be publicly calling on Awol to hand over the deeds to his house to the Royal British Legion just yet, but there is no doubting that the report emphasises the role of far-right groups.

Other country reports:

http://www.tau.ac.il/Anti-Semitism/CR.htm

So, who's doing the attacking?

Austria has roughly 15 times as many anti-semitic attacks/events per (Jewish)head than the UK, but there are only 20,000 Muslims there (as opposed to the 1.1 million in the UK). If the Awol's implied hypothesis is correct we have to ask ourselves when those 20,000 Austrian Muslims have time to sleep.

Caveat: I am not condoning anti-semitism. However, we should be mindful of the figures that get thrown about that try to portray the phenomenon as a crisis in order to justify Zionism or negate criticism of the Israeli government.
