Another Bay Area BDS Fail

I can only imagine the local BDS community sitting in their basement apartments, sipping their kombucha and taking deep cleansing breathes in an effort to self-soothe. Even in the San Francisco Bay Area, attempts to isolate Israel are failing.   New direct flights to Israel are being added,  attempting to keep up with the growing number of business and leisure travelers to the Holy land.

As seen in San Jose,  reported by the bloggers at S.F. Bay Pro Israel Counter Terrorist Unit


Throughout San Francisco Airportas well, there are signs promoting the new direct flights.



These signs might as well just say BDS Fail.

Protest at the San Francisco Consulate fizzles in the rain.

What if you called for an anti-Israel protest and no one came?


Thats what happened May 15.  Local Israel-hater Hassan Fouda hosted a commemoration of the "Nakba"- the failure of 7 Arab states to destroy the nascent state of Israel in May, 1948. The response was underwhelming.

Anti-Israel protest in front of the San Francisco Consulate
Hassan may have caught your attention with his fawning admiration for Raed Salah, the leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel, who has served time for incitement after spreading some classic blood libel. Salah's a Holocaust denier and conspiracy theorist,  but that doesn't bother Hassan.

Or perhaps  you've noticed him posing "as a Jew" at local protests.

Hassan continued with his "faith-washing" on Wednesday.  His mini-protest carried a sign from Sabeel and Kairos,  Christian groups with unchristian values.  They seek the end of Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people.


The tiny group stood in the rain in front of the Israel Consulate at 456 Montgomery, largely ignored by those on the street. They vainly attempted to deliver a petition to the consulate, were turned away at the door,  and eventually slunk off, rejected, wet and ignored, down the street.

Palestinian Grand Mufti complicit in the deaths of European Jews

Congressperson Rashida Tlaib is now claiming her ancestors provided a safe haven for Jews fleeing the Holocaust. Its simply not true. The Arab leadership in pre-state Israel did all they could to prevent Jewish migration. The Grand Mufti personally prevented 10,000  children from entering the land, dooming them to certain death in Europe

From the Des Moines Tribune, April 26 1961, writing about the Eichmann trial and quoting notes from Dieter Wisliceny, one of Eichmann's former aides.

In 1937 there already was an intelligence connection between the SS and the mufti of Jerusalem, Wisliceny was quoted as having written.

The excerpts told of a visit by Eichmann to Palestine in 1937 and by the mufti to Germany in 1941 or 1942.


According to Wisliceny, the mufti received consent from Nazi authorities to have a Nazi adviser sent to him after the Axis' expected final victory.

When there was a plan in 1942 to free 10,000 Jewish children to let them go to Palestine the mufti objected according to Wisliceny.

The notes quoted Eichmann as reporting that objections from the mufti prompted SS chief Himmler to suspend the project and to rule that no Jew should be permitted to go to Palestine from German-occupied Europe





Records from the Eichmann trial show that the Grand Mufti was paid a salary of 50,000 marks a month to foment hate in the region.   Rather than provide the Jews of Europe with a safe haven, the Palestinian Grand Mufti was complicit in their deaths.

74% of those killed in Gaza last week were terror operatives

According to a recent report published by the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, 74% of the casualties from last week violence in Gaza were members of terrorist groups

Of the 23 killed,  eight  were members of Islamic Jihad operatives, five were Fatah operatives, two Hamas operatives and one was a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terror group.

Innocent civilians killed in Gaza

690 rockets were launched at Israel last weekend from Gaza.  In response,  the IDF targeted terrorist infrastructure, including weapons caches and operations rooms., many of which were located in personal residences.  Before the houses were attacked the IDF warned their occupants so they could leave.

Among the Gaza dead included Mahmoud Subhi Issa, 26.
Fawzi Abd al-Hamid Bawadi, 24
Muhammad Abd al-Nabi Armaneh, 30

Hamed Ahmed Abd al-Khoudary, 34, was killed in a targeted attack on his vehicle.  Al-Khoudary was responsible for transferring currency from Iran to terrorist organizations within Gaza.

Sadly, several innocents were killed within Gaza, as well. Saba Abu ‘Arar, a 14 month old toddler was killed when a rocket stored in her family home prematurely exploded. 

While many on social media tried to pin  \her death on Israel


other sources within Gaza admitted  the truth


Our prayers go out to the families of Israel, who have spent 36 hours under bombardment. We pray for their safety and the safety of the Palestinians who are also the unwilling victims of their extremist leaders. Above all we hope for the day when the Palestinian leaders lay aside their hatred, end the incitement and glorification of violence and reach out for peace with their neighbors in Israel.

Happy Birthday Israel

Happy 71st birthday to Israel, our miracle in the desert.

Remembering the 23,741 lives lost as we struggled to be a free people, back home in the land of our ancestors.

Here's how the events of May, 1948 were covered  across America.









We have history.  They have  "narrative"

More repulsive antisemitism at San Francisco State University

SFSU is again living up to its reputation as one of the most difficult campuses in America for Jewish students.

Today,  vile signs have appeared throughout San Francisco State University, blaming anti-semitism on  "the occupation".




Do they really believe that there were no recorded incidents of anti-Semitism before 1967, or is this just another in a series of hate -filled message meant to intimidate and silence Jewish students?




Big fat lies from Marin's 14 Friends of Palestine

Fat chance we’d ever get the truth from Jane Jewell’s Marin-based group, 14 Friends of Palestine.


On their website,  the group spreads the egregious lie that “Israel restricts the amount of food going into Gaza, a ruthless and deliberate policy whereby the dietary needs of the Gazan people are chillingly calculated to keep the population alive at a near starvation level.”

It’s a complete falsehood.

There are no restrictions on food going into Gaza, and Gaza farmers export agricultural products to the Middle east and Europe.  Rather than facing starvation, obesity is becoming a public health priority in Gaza. Gaza's stores, and restaurants are filled with luscious offerings

Gaza exports agricultural products.  “Strawberries are an important source of income in Gaza for Palestinian farmers and their families,” said the Israeli Defense Ministry’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) unit, which facilitates the exports. “The export and sale of strawberries from the Gaza Strip has yielded revenues of about 13m NIS so far this harvest season, a 290% improvement over last year,” 

Rather than a population kept at “near starvation levels”, peer reviewed medical literature documents the Palestinians' struggle with Western rates of obesity.  

An article published earlier this year  (PLoS One. 2019 Jan 25) Epidemiology of coronary artery disease and stroke and associated risk factors in Gaza community found

The overall obesity in our study was found to be 47.8%, with higher prevalence in females (60.2%), the mean BMI was 30.35. It is in line with previous study performed in urban Palestinian population of Ramallah, describing an obesity prevalence up to 41% (49% and 30%) in females and males respectively.

The cross-sectional study covered 5 Gaza governorates,  both urban and rural.

An earlier article,  Obesity and overweight: prevalence and associated sociodemographic factors among mothers in three different areas in the Gaza Strip-Palestine, published in BMC Obesity concluded:
·        
The prevalence of obese and overweight cases among women is high. Obesity is a serious public health problem in the Gaza Strip and must be emphasized because the trend is continuously increasing.

A glance at Gaza's social media proves beyond a doubt that there are no restrictions on food entering Gaza,  and that there is no current risk of "starvation".

How bad is the New York Times?

Enabling and abetting anti-semitism through biased reporting appears to be a feature and not a bug in New York Times coverage of  the Middle East.

From Honest reporting
The New York Times’ Cartoon Didn’t Come Out of Nowhere

The New York Times cartoon may have been a blunder, but only in the sense that it exposed the extent to which antisemitism has been allowed to creep into the New York Times’ pages.

In the last week alone, Honest Reporting has documented a singular bias in the New York Time's coverage of the Middle East

*On Friday, 19 April, the New York Times published a piece, by a former magazine staff writer no less, about what Jesus may have looked like, referring to him as “likely Palestinian.” Jesus was in fact a Judean Jew, and in his eyes, the term “Palestine” would have been associated with the occupying Roman forces.

*On Sunday, 21 April, a piece by New York Times writers David Halbfinger and Miriam Berger detailing Palestinian fears after the Israeli elections was published. While little in the article was factually incorrect, the article totally omitted repeated Israeli offers to the Palestinians, repeated Palestinian rejections of offers seen by America as generous and fair, and didn’t once mention Israel’s fears.

*Finally on Thursday, 25 April, BDS founder Omar Barghouti was allowed the platform of the newspaper’s letters page to champion his cause and openly call for the dismantling of Israel, the world’s one Jewish state...

If that weren't bad enough, a glance at today's print edition of the New York Times shows the utter contempt they hold not just for Israel, but for the American Jewish community as well.

While we collectively mourn the shooting and the tragic loss of an innocent life at the Chabad synagogue in Poway, California, coming 6 months to the day of the Pittsburgh massacre, the New York Times parked the story on page 25, directing readers to it with a tiny paragraph at the bottom of page one.





Jews shot dead while worshipping in California does not even merit a page one article in the New York Times.

Outraged at this bias?  

Direct flights from San Francisco to Israel .

Tourism to Israel is at record levels.  The tiny state- the size of New Jersey- entertained over 4 million visitors last year.  To accommodate this huge demand, airports across the globe are adding more flights to Israel.

Check out this beauty, courtesy of El Al:

The El Al dreamline is adorned with pictures of the Golden Gate bridge, and San Francisco's iconic cable cars. The artwork is by illustrator Shay Vadel and Amir Assayag. Its maiden flight will be May 13.

Repulsive Anti-Semitism in the New York Times

From Emunah:

Many years ago I observed a protest at San Francisco's Israeli Consulate, standing with those who refused to cede the street to those that meant to destroy us.  Faces covered, the protestors' chants were blood-chilling.

"Itbach al Yahud" (Slaughter the Jews)
"Ba ruh, ba dam, nafdeek ya Falastin" (With our soul, with our blood, we will cleanse you oh Palestine),
"Al mawt al Yahud" (Death to the Jews), 
"Khaybar Khaybar ya Yahud, jaish-Muhammad saya'ud" (Khaybar Khaybar oh Jews, the army of Muhammad will return).
"Falastin balad'na w'al Yahud qalab'na" (Palestine is our land and the Jews are our dogs)

"Palestine is our land and the Jews are our dogs."
"Jews are the sons of pigs and apes."
This vile rhetoric serves to dehumanize the Jewish people and is anti-Semitic to its core.  

This cartoon, appearing in the April 25 international edition of the New York Times strikes all those notes, and more.  Simultaneously, Jews are portrayed by these dual antisemtic tropes.  In the eye of the anti-semite Jews are both subhuman, yet capable of directly influencing power.




The imagery of the unscrupulous Jew leading around the blind leaders of the west echos both Nazi-era propaganda
And Soviet propaganda



It was no wonder the Times attempted to scrub the digital site of the cartoon.   But it was too little, too late.   The print version had already been distributed to over 100 different countries.



The New York Times issued a detraction of sorts, but regular readers know that this sort of rhetoric has become a feature, and not a bug of their coverage.  Their words are meaningless.


Are you still subscribing to the New York Times?
Why?

Freedom House: Israel is the Only Free Country in the Middle East

According to the 2019 report by the human rights group Freedom House, Israel is the only free country in the Middle East.

Founded by Eleanor Roosevelt and Wendell Willkie, in 1941, Freedom House is non-profit, independent watchdog dedicated to "the expansion of freedom and democracy around the world." Its 2019 report on Freedom across the world describes Israel as "a multiparty democracy with strong and independent institutions that guarantee political rights and civil liberties for most of the population".

Again, we must ask why is the only nation in the region that is ranked as free subject to such vitriolic rhetoric across the media, in the UN and on college campuses?



Could it be because it is the only Jewish state, not only in the region, but in the world?

A love song to Israel

A love song to Israel, written by Doron Medley and composed by Idan Raichel



70 years on the road I'm traveling and looking
At what was and what will
And how my soul is still this nation
From catching the sunrise
From Jerusalem with its palaces
From the beaches of the Kinneret
From the parties of Tel Aviv
My father dreamed and prayed
To live in the Land of Israel
Today my children ask me
What is the story of Israel?
This is my home This is my heart
And I will not leave
Our ancestors, our roots
We are the flowers, the melodies
A tribe of brothers and sisters
The same neighborhood, the same street
Jacob's twelve sons'
Brought together after their wanderings
In the place of their longing
A man is his native landscape
He lines lines in the palm of his hand
Between the prayers and the oaths
The smell of orchard of citrus
And in my mother's eyes
I'll always find my place
The guitar is playing
An ancient tune that is right
This is a my home
This is my heart
And I will not leave
Our ancestors, our roots
And we are the flowers, the melodies
A tribe of brothers and sisters
From scratch everything is sewn
Patches, patches of the story
Like two words - they connect
The golden needle of a poet
Here I am from, Here I belong
And every friend of mine is like a brother
You are beating in my heart
I am east and west
This is my home
This is my heart
And I will not leave
Our ancestors, our roots
We are the flowers, the melodies
A tribe of brothers and sisters
This is my home
This is my heart
And I will not leave
Our ancestors, our roots
We are the flowers, the melodies

UC Berkeley Chancellor Carol Christ responds to allegation of anti-Semitism at UC Berkeley


To the Berkeley Campus Community
 
I have been made aware of what appear to have been disturbing expressions of bias at a public ASUC meeting held Wednesday, April 17th. Even as we seek to more fully understand what was said, I want to make clear that the University’s administration condemns bias, including racism, anti-Semitism and other forms of prejudice, on this campus and beyond.
I also understand that at the same meeting students of color provided passionate, moving comment about the extent to which they feel isolated and marginalized on this campus. This, too, is disturbing and demanding of our attention and concern.
The divisions of Student Affairs and Equity & Inclusion are determined to support all students in our community. We must have a truly inclusive culture where all can feel safe, respected, and welcome. We also must come together and determine how we can best deter and confront not only bias but all manifestations of intolerance and exclusion that violate our shared values and Principles of Community.
If you need support, the campus has several resources, including counseling services. For help navigating these resources, please contact: deanofstudents@berkeley.edu, or visit deanofstudents.berkeley.edu/well-being.
 
Sincerely,
 
Carol Christ
Chancellor

Jewish voice for Peace conflates Zionism and white supremacy

According to the most current FBI data on hate crimes, released in November 2018, hate crimes targeting Jews and Jewish institutions in the U.S. rose 37 percent between 2016 and 2017 . Although Jews account for just 2% of the population, the FBI data shows that attacks on Jewish people and institutions accounted for 58.1% of religious-based hate crime incidents. 

The discussion on anti-Semitism  and anti-Semitic attacks in America have taken on a new urgency since the massacre at Pittsburgh's Tree of Life synagogue. The proliferation of anti-semitic imagery and rhetoric in the media, and in public spaces   comes from the both the far left, the far right.

Its a discussion we need to have.  In particular, its a discussion that we need to have a UC Berkeley, where Jewish students have  felt particularly besieged this week.

But not this way.

In a classic  "fox guarding the hen-house" moment,  The UC Berkeley branch of Jewish Voice for Peace  oversaw a discussion on anti-semitism.  Orwell would be spinning in this grave.  The fringe organization that exists to create “a wedge” within the American Jewish community, "while working toward the goal of eliminating U.S. economic, military, and political aid to Israel."  scheduled the event for erev Pesach, all but guaranteeing that Jews wouldn't attend.

At least 2 did.

From the Jewish Voice for Peace Announcement:






We are living in frightening, strange, and confusing times: white nationalists march in the streets of Charlottesville shouting “Jews will not replace us,” vandalize cemeteries in Philadelphia , and massacre synagogue attendees in Pittsburgh while Black and Muslim Congresswomen and leftist college students who support Palestine are deemed in the media the true faces of antisemitism, the real threats to Jewish safety in the present. In a time where a unified front against the violence of white supremacy is ever more critical, accusations of antisemitism have increasingly sowed conflict and division in social justice movements. How do we make sense of this? how did we get here? and how do we address this?

Join Jewish Voice for Peace at Berkeley and the SSWANA Initiative as we unpack these questions and seek to understand what antisemitism is, what it isn't, and how fighting it strengthens all of our movements. Come learn about 1. how antisemitism functions within the larger structure of white supremacy, 2. how it differs from anti-Zionism and why the two are so often wrongly conflated, and 3. how we can effectively fight it by dismantling other systems of oppression.

Food and drink will be provided :-)
Location: Stiles Hall, 2400 Bancroft Way

The JVP facilitators Anna and Elisa used a powerpoint straight from Jews for Racial & Economic Justice, and made it clear, from the onset, that there was to be no debate of their definitions of "Zionism" or  "anti-semitism."  There was no discussion of the collective trauma that led 12 Jewish groups on campus, as dissimilar as Chabad, J Street U and J Fem  to join in unity against the open anti-Semitism they experienced on campus.  The experiences and very existence of Jews of color and Jews from Arab lands were marginalized.  The indigenous rights movement of Zionism was conflated with white supremacy.  Anna  and Elisa had an agenda to push, and they were going to plow through it,  truth be damned.

We've been promised a full report after the Chaggim.  Stay tuned.

Berkeley's Jewish Community Responds to 4/17 ASUC Senate Meeting

Berkeley's Jewish Community Responds to 4/17 ASUC Senate Meeting

A collective statement by the UC Berkeley Jewish Community, co-signed by 

Berkeley Hillel Student Board
Bears For Israel
Chabad at UC Berkeley Student Board
Greek Jewish Council
Jewish Students Association at Berkeley Law
JFem
J Street U at Berkeley
UC Berkeley Chapter of Challah for Hunger
UC Berkeley Chapter of the Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity
UC Berkeley Mishelanu
The Jews of Color Collective
Tikvah: Students for Israel

To the UC Berkeley community,

As representatives of the Jewish community here at Cal, we are appalled and deeply pained by the anti-Semitic remarks made over the course of the April 17th ASUC Senate meeting.

The verbal abuse and harassment, conspiratorial accusations, and spreading of false information that we witnessed conveys an attitude of hostility towards the Jewish people and a fundamental misunderstanding of who we are as a community. This university (and our student government in particular) has earned a reputation for its recurring issues with anti-Semitism. When we go home to our communities, we are constantly asked about our experiences with anti-Semitism on campus. Every one of us has gotten a call from a high school senior concerned about applying to a school with such a strong reputation for anti-Semitism. Time and time again, our community has been marginalized and vilified, but in turn we are met only with apathy and further demonization.

To be clear, the April 17th ASUC Senate meeting was not focused on Zionism or Israel, but was rather set up as a forum for comment on the recent Judicial Council ruling regarding the 2019 ASUC elections. In the public comment, some Jewish students spoke to the room about the disqualification of a Jewish senator-elect, among others, and noted that because of this, they felt that the Jewish community lost essential representation in the ASUC. In the comments following, we were the only identity group whose desire to be represented was rebuked. Several speakers used the opportunity to invoke anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist views as dog-whistles to target Jews, including specific Jewish students in the room.

We are troubled by the failure of these speakers to recognize that while Zionism is a crucial part of our community’s identity, each member of our community has their own personal relationship with Israel and Zionism. Using Zionism as a code for Judaism, and subsequently conflating this with white supremacy, is completely ignorant of how white supremacy is founded on anti-Semitism and victimizes Jews. The words we heard last night mirror the anti-Semitic rhetoric of white supremacy and contribute to the oppression of Jewish people on this campus and beyond. Additionally, there are Jewish students of color on this campus who felt overlooked by attacks targeting their Jewish identity and isolating them within their PoC (people of color) communities. A defense of PoC communities cannot include the anti-Semitic views expressed last night. The way that Zionism was and continues to be weaponized, misused, and misunderstood shows an unwillingness to listen and learn from the Jewish community on campus.

Below is a selection of the most hurtful statements made in last night’s meeting:

A former Senator complained about only hearing “white tears, Zionist tears,” and was met with uproarious applause while an audience member shouted, “F*ck Zionists.”

A former Senator falsely claimed that she was disqualified years ago as a result of her support for Palestine and for standing up to the “Israeli genocide.”

Another student leader spoke after the public comment period and expressed various anti-Semitic conspiracies, which included:

Claiming the Israeli Defense Forces train American police to kill black people;

Claiming that being friends with Zionists means one is complicit in oppression, the prison-industrial complex, and modern-day slavery;

Interchanging the words “Zionist,” “Israeli,” and “Jewish” - a clear indication that by calling for the exclusion of Zionists from campus spaces, they were calling for the exclusion of Jews altogether.

We, as Jewish students, condemn the events of April 17th and stand united against the hatred and ignorance that permeates our campus. We ask that the campus community stand with us, make your voice heard and show that Berkeley truly does stand united against hate. We would like to extend the invitation for dialogue to any member of the campus community that would like to listen to us and engage with us.


Signed,

The UC Berkeley Jewish Community

Swastikas in Buena Vista Park

Welcome to San Francisco.  City of inclusion. Diversity. And tolerance.

San Franciscans living near Buena Vista Park in the Height-Ashbury neighborhood were greeted this morning by over a dozen swastikas painted on the pedestrian walkway surrounding the park.


Park officials quickly painted over the swastikas and are reviewing surveillance tapes in an effort to identify the responsible party.
