As UN committees feed Anti-Semitism, UN Condemns Spike in Anti-Semitism Worldwide

Too little, too late: Belated condemnation surfaces after Jews have been threatened & beaten across the globe – maybe due to decades of racist and biased UN declarations against Israel.

The conflict in Gaza should not be an excuse for anti-Semitic slurs and attacks, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said late Sunday.

Ban “deplores the recent upsurge in anti-Semitic attacks, particularly in Europe, in connection with protests concerning the escalation of violence in Gaza,” read a statement from the UN leader’s spokesman.

“The Secretary-General emphasizes that the conflict in the Middle East must not constitute a pretext for prejudice that could affect social peace and harmony anywhere.”

Ban “firmly believes that the conflict needs to be solved through an immediate cessation of violence and negotiations,” the statement read.

Ban’s statement surfaces weeks after hundreds of anti-Semitic incidents were recorded worldwide, including throughout Europe, in the UK, and in multiple places in the US.

Pro-Palestinian marches throughout the globe have become common, and often feature anti-Semitic chants or waves of violence – before, during, or after the demonstrations.

France, in particular, has become a hotbed of anti-Semitic violence, with multiple violent demonstrations and ineffective police presence compounding the problem.

At least some of the violence has stemmed from the international community’s condemnation of Israel over its self-defense operation, including the vilification of the Jewish state by the UN and its various organizations – which has then trickled down into most mainstream media outlets.

It is unclear whether this belated acknowledgement of the rise in anti-Semitism stems from Israel’s announcing a seven-hour ceasefire on Monday, amid world outrage over a deadly strike on a UN school that was likely being used as Hamas headquarters.

The IDF has previously provided video evidence that Hamas fires rockets from inside schools and it is also known that Hamas has also been using UNRWA schools as storage sites for its rockets. For the third time in recent days, such a stockpile was discovered in a UN school Tuesday.

    None of this surprises me. Jews hated worldwide? Read the closing chapters of Deuteronomy? An alliance of Turkey, Iran and others attacking Israel? (as they are in Gaza today by proxy, but soon directly) Ezekiel 38-39. (Hint: Magog is, and always has been, what is now Turkey); EVERY nation in the world attacking Israel? Read Zechariah 14.

    The whole world would never do this, I hear, especially the US. How about this:

    World should impose solution on Israel, France says

    NOTE the word “impose”, as in “force”, as in “invade”, as in “Zechariah 14”. Also note that the one proposing this action is not “The State of Palestine”, or Iran or Saudi Arabia: it is US and NATO ally France.

    And will the US stand with Israel? Obama is a basketball player, and he understands that in order to pivot TOWARDS something, you have to pivot away from something else. He hasn’t had much success in pivoting towards Asia, but he’s trying really hard; and his pivot AWAY FROM Israel ought to be obvious by now.

    This is a sensible time to do aliyah to Israel, before the UN bans it. Of course, if one is comfortable, as the Jews of Poland were before WWII, then one should stay where they are — and die, when his escape is cut off.

    I never imagined that I would see Ezekiel 38-39 unfolding in my lifetime, but here you have it — right on this very blog:

    israelandstuffcom | August 4, 2014
    “Israel’s Operation Protective Edge’ redraws Mideast alliances

    “Shifting powers may bring about newfound cooperation since Gaza war with moderate Sunnis expert says ‘conflict is pitting Turkey, Qatar & Iran against [Israel,] Saudi Arabia & Egypt.’”

    How much of a knock on the head do the Jewish people need?

    UN has long been into some vicious anti-Israel and anti-US agenda, committees, memorandums, what not. Their despicable behavior is nothing new and these official thugs should be disbanded completely.
