Anti-Jewish Bigotry within Arabism.

In General

Pan-Arabism's racist anti-Jewish ideology

Anti-Jewish feelings among Arabs in the past century came to surface after the occupation of Palestine and the creation of Israel. [[1]] Historically, the status of Jews in the Arab Islamic world was, by far, much better than that of Jews in Christian Europe. The Jewish population flourished under Arab-Islamic rule in Spain.[2][3]After the creation of the Israeli state in 1948 on what was before Palestine (see: [agreement] and [Promise]) , the Zionist movement embraced by the Israeli state and many Jews carried out massacres in various Arab cities. Palestinians view those massacres, acknowledged and condemned by the UN [[4]], as comparable to the Jewish Holocaust[5]. As Israel continues to occupy Palestinian lands, Palesinians and Arabs view Israel (being a Jewish state) as an aggressor.[6]
For information about arab attitudes before 1948 see: [and Palestinian Arab attitudes before 1948]

A strong supporter of pan-Arabism Egypt's Gamal Abdel Nasser used anti-Semitic "protocols" libel in the Arab-Israeli conflict. [7], some supporters of the pan-Arabism ideology looked to Hitler's Germany as a model[dubious ] Haj Amin al-Husseini expressed his admiration for the way 'the Germans have definitively solved the Jewish problem,' [8] & Gamal Abdel Nasser's affinity for the Mufti was great [9], Joachim Wurst describes the emergence and psychological mechanisms of modern anti-Semitism and particularly of genocidal Islamist anti-Semitism[neutrality disputed]. He traces the development of this trend from the Muslim Brotherhood and the Mufti of Jerusalem in the 1930s and 1940s through the pan-Arabism of the 1950s and 1960s up to the present-day Islamism. [10].

As the Jewish population increased by migration under the british mandate[[11]] racism in Arabism grew stronger in the 1920's, Dr. Kaveh Farrokh explains that to understand the awkwardness (and indeed irrationality) of pan-Arabism (or any form of racialism), one is compelled to also briefly learn about the true founders of the B'aath party; Michel Aflaq and Salah al-Din al-Bitar. Both were born in Damascus, they formed their party on the basis of pan-Arabism, like the movements that had taken place in neighboring Iraq in the 1920s. Another influential and French (Sorbonne) educated Syrian, was Zaki al-Arsuzi. Al-Arsuzi was especially outspoken in his racism against the local Turks of Syria and especially venomous in his hatred against the Jews. [12]

Jews Golden Age in Arab-Islamic Spain The treatment of non-Muslims in the Caliphate of Spain has been a subject of considerable debate among scholars and commentators, especially those interested in drawing parallels to the coexistence of Muslims and non-Muslims in the modern world. It has been argued that Jews (and other religious minorities) were treated significantly better in Muslim-controlled Iberia than in Christian western Europe, living in a unique "golden age" of tolerance, respect and harmony. Though Al-Andalus was a key center of Jewish life during the early Middle Ages, producing important scholars and one of the most stable and wealthy Jewish communities, there is no clear scholarly consensus over whether the relationship between Jews and Muslims was truly a paragon of interfaith relations, or whether it was simply similar to the treatment Jews received elsewhere at the same time.[[13]]

1800's & 1920's.

Investigative Research examins if Arab anti-Jewish racism in the first half of the 20th c. (that was marked already then with slaughtering of Jews with the racist shouting of Itbach al Yahud - kill the Jews) was fundamentally indifferent from the European variety [14]. On March 1, 1944. the famous Mufti: Amin Al-Husseini makes speech from Berlin addressing Muslim SS Nazi troops: ?Kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, History and Religion. This saves your honor. God is with you.? [15].

On Syria's Baathism's racism [16] Major ideas of Baathism center around racism and anti-Semitism. The Baath party stems from the Pan-Arab movement [17], examples: Syrian Daily Al Baath, October 21, 1998 had an antisemitic cartoon, and on October 21, 1998 on Syrian TV: In these days, all of us, Arabs and Muslims, must stand together against the Jews [18].

Independent Arab artists have published a gross anti-Jewish TV extravaganza "Horse without Horseman" which relates to parts of the Arab/Israeli conflict [19]. so does anti-Jewish themes in Hezbollah Media. Hezbollah also views Israel as a danger to the independence of Lebanon as Israel still occupies Lebanese lands. [20] Memri Has been documenting the racism and antisemitism in the Arab world [21]. So does the ADL [22], Saudi Arabia bans Jewish visitors [23]. Pew's finding in 2005 found that in Muslim nations such as Jordan most viewed Jews unfavorably on basis of linking zionism, massacres and occupation to Jews.[24].It is noteworthy that Arabs themselves are from the same semitic origin as jews [25]

But it knows no borders[Neutrality disputed  — See talk page], of the ADL's records that documents antisemitic attacks wordlwide [26], the larger portion of those listed since 2002 (to 2008) were attributed to Arabs, especially those in Europe, in a sport game in Chile, Non-Jewish Goldberg (mistaken for Jew) made headlines after fans of Palestino, a Chilean team set up by Palestinian Arabs hurled racial slurs, 'They called me J. garbage' [27].[original research?]

In 2007 the London editor of pan-Arab daily was praying for Iranian nuclear genocide attack on Israel [28] "if the Iranian missiles strike Israel, by Allah, I will go to Trafalgar Square and dance with delight." circulating its propaganda to about 50,000 readers [29].

Europe: A few examples in France: Already in October 2000 among a very long and troubling list of attacks, Jews threatened and shoved by Arabs outside O.Y. Synagogue in Paris (first of two incidents) & 'Death to Jews' painted on two Synagogues in Marseilles [30], between 2000-2001 200 Arabs attacked Jews on the Champs Elysees [31], in March 2003 French Arab Muslims attack Jews in Paris in an "anti-war" march [32], in 2003 Jewish congregations in Sweden have noted a sharp increase in "harassment threats and attacks by Arabs and Muslims against Jews [33], in 2004 Six Arab youths attacked a twenty three year old young mother with her thirteen month old baby [34] after "deciding" she was Jewish, cut her hair with knives, slashed her clothes and scrawled swastikas on her belly in black felt-tip pen [35],in March 2006 Jews attacked in Paris suburbs by Arabs [36] in June 2008 Jewish Boy Attacked by Arab Muslim Mob in Paris [37], A 17-year-old French Jew Rudy Haddad attacked by North-Africans (Arabs) Jewish teen brutally beaten in apparent anti-Semitic attack in Paris, "[Sarkozy] assures the victim and his family of his support and renews his total determination to fight all forms of racism and anti-Semitism," said a statement from Sarkozy's office. A 23-year-old French Jew, Ilan Halimi, was found naked, tortured and covered in burns near Paris on February 13, 2006, after being held captive for three weeks. He died on the way to the hospital. The crime shocked France and raised fears of surging anti-Semitism among French Muslims. In February of this year, another Jewish teenager was tortured in the same town in which Halimi was killed, in yet another anti-Semitic attack. [38].

At the UN, The Arab Lawyers Union of Egypt in Durban in 2001, distributed a booklet of violently Ani Jewish cartoons and has, since then, continued its incitement to Jew-hatred [39].

Jeremy Jones wrote in a report in 2004 on Australia that some of the most overt anti-Jewish rhetoric in recent years has come from the Muslim and Arab groups & communities, and within the Arab and Muslim communities there is a group of activists who seek at every opportunity to denigrate Jews, not only in association with attacks on Israel[1].

On campus: Columbia University's investigation into charges of anti-Jewish intimidation by Arab professors [40].

Harassment on Jewish students in Canadian universities by Arabs like in Carleton [41], Concordia University [42] which has been described by some as "centre of militant Arabism in Canada" [43]. [44] there were charges (in 2002) of militant Arabism in Canada's Concordia University.

More on campus, On May 7 2002, an example has been seen at the SFSU while a large, angry crowd of Arab Palestinians and their supporters swarmed a Jewish peace rally (where students wore t-shirts that said "peace" in English, Hebrew and Arabic) members, used physical violence, and shouted "Get out or we will kill you" and "Hitler did not finish the job" [45] [46] [47].

There are complaints against the Muslim Students Association MSA of racism against Jews coming from its Arabs, Muslims, in 2008 Author David Horowitz, a popular conservative writer, was derided in a Nazi-like anti-Semitic cartoon, put out by the Muslim Student Association. The cartoon, which was copied and spread around campus, portrays Horowitz, a Jewish man, as a hooked-nose Nazi hiding in a trash can [48].

Roots and cause of Middle east conflict

Pundits explain that the conflict in the middle east Arabs Vs Israel (that started with racist massacers on Jews accompanied with the slogan "Itbach al Yahud - Kill the Jews" [49] already in the 1920's [50], through Hitler's buddy [51] the Mufti Mohammad Amin al-Husayni is just another Arab Muslim intolerance, the plight of Israel - being a minority in a majority hostile middle east. [52] [53] [54] And even progressive, left wingers in Israel realize that Arab racism must go, and that "There will be no peace around here before Arabs view Jews as human beings." [55], or as others have phrased it: Racism and Middle East Politics, As long as middle-eastern Arabs teach their children to hate Jews, there will be no lasting peace [56]. 'Facts and Logic About the Middle East' asks: Racism in the Islamic World How can peace prevail in the Middle East in the face of Islamic bigotry and hate? When will moderate Muslims speak out? [57], and the phenomenon of the new anti-Semitism which demonizes Jews and Israel alike, has fused itself with the "old" European anti Jewish bigotry [58]. Saddam Hussein's "Three Whom God Should Not Have Created: Persians, Jews, and Flies" [59] who also led a racist [60] genocide campaign [61] against the Kurds, coincides with that in moments before his death, he shouted: 'Palestine is Arab', meaning only Arab. [62], as part of a culture of hatred, the racism that denies historic roots of the Jews to Israel [63].

The first recorded Arab attack on Jews in Palestine was already back in 1886 in Petach Tikva [64][65] [66] [67].

Regarding the racist expulsion of 850,000 to 900,000 Jews from Arab countries [68] [69] the ethnic cleansing of the Jews [70], the UN Watch Mar 19, 2008 has raised the importance of Historic truth in: Testimony at the UN - "Racism and Historical Truth: Jewish Refugees from Arab Lands" [71].

On anti-Jewish racism's effect on clarity of the middle east, Interfaith Office Acknowledges (May 2008) Anti-Jewish Motifs and Stereotypes in Commentary About Arab-Israeli Conflict [72], concern about Carter's pro-Arabism and veteran historian of Islam and the Middle East [73] & Bernard Lewis is concerned that the ?Arab strain of racism, untruths and hatred against Jews and Israel is not only more virulent than its European counterpart, but is not counterbalanced by true scholarship or competing reason.? As a result, he believes, attitudes and beliefs ?long discredited in the modernity of western countries take root with gullible, impressionable Middle Eastern audiences from a pre-modern culture.? [74].

There's extensive research on 'Palestinian Anti-Semitism' [75], In its official media, the PA daily described: The Fable of the Holocaust [76], the JCPA elaborates About Anti-Semitism among Palestinian Authority Academics and how The Palestinian Authority's academic anti-Semitism has built an extensive case against Jewish existence [77] This Palestinian racism is particularly dangerous because this hatred of Jews is portrayed as the will of Allah. [78] The Arab-Palestinian racism of killing only Jews In Israel, for the sole reason of being Jewish. they target every Jew, regardless of his or her individual political views, and they apologize when they accidentally kill a non-Jew, regardless of his political view. [79]

Rachel Neuwirth Wrote "Judenrein Palestine?" about Arabs forcing Israel to remove Jews from their historic Judea and asks: Why can?t Jews live in their historic homeland if there really is peace? After all, there are 1.2 million Arabs living as citizens of Israel in the one Jewish country in the world, while there are only a handful of Jews living in any of the 22 Arab countries. In fact, in Jordan and Saudi Arabia, not only is it illegal for Jews to be citizens, they are not even allowed to live there. Therefore, she proves, instead of Israel being the "apartheid state" in the region, it is the Arab world that is not only apartheid, but also racist and religiously exclusive" [80].
