The UN Conference in Durban

What about World Opinion? Just 8 days before the WTC/Pentagon attacks, Israel was stunned by a UN decision equating Zionism with Racism, according to Ha'aretz

Israel was branded a "racist apartheid" state by thousands of non- governmental organizations (NGOs) attending a U.N. World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South Africa. The conference was attended by representatives of 153 governments.

The declaration, adopted by 3,000 NGOs in 44 regional and interest- based caucuses, shocked Jewish groups.

Foreign Minister Shimon Peres called the anti-Israel declarations a disgrace, and said that Israel was "seriously" contemplating withdrawing from the conference in protest. The Israeli delegation to the conference blasted the language of the NGO declaration as an incitement to hatred of Jews.

Jewish delegates walked out. The U.S. delegates followed.

Israel IS a terrorist state.  Ariel Sharon BRAGS about it, and it's aired on AMERICAN television.  So why would the US delegates walk out?  Are they being blackmailed?  And what TIMING the attack on the WTC was?!  And note how differently the US "free press" presented this issue:

In the week before September 11 there were already disturbing signs
that anti-semitism was reaching a new pitch. The attack on New York
took place three days after the chaotic close of the Durban Anti-
Racism Conference in which delegates from Arab governments and NGOs
sought unsuccessfully to have Israel designated as a racist apartheid
state, and called for the establishment of a UN committee to
prosecute Israeli war crimes and to isolate totally the country. The
NGO resolution was not backed by major human rights groups such as
Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch. The European Roma Rights
Centre issued its own statement, written by Dimitrina Petrova, its
executive director: "The aggressive exclusion of Jewish participants
and the accompanying, blatantly intolerant anti-semitic spirit
plaguing the entire process, prompted us firmly to distance ourselves
from this forum's unfortunate outcome."

This wasn't just "Arab governments and NGOs"--this was 153 governments and 3,000 NGOs, with only TWO walking out in protest. This wasn't "anti-semitism"--this was anti-terrorism.

Millions believe 4,000 Jews stayed away from the World Trade Centre
on September 11. Harmless conspiracy theory? Or sign of a virulent
new anti-semitism? Linda Grant on how the Arab world is exporting an
old hatred to the west

On September 18, Al-Manar television based in Beirut broadcast a news
item that subsequently appeared on its English-language
website: "With the announcement of the attacks at the World Trade
Centre in New York, the international media, particularly the Israeli
one, hurried to take advantage of the tragedy and started mourning
4,000 Israelis who work at the two towers. Then suddenly, no one ever
mentioned anything about those Israelis and later it became clear
that they remarkably did not show up for their jobs the day the
incident took place ... Arab diplomatic sources revealed to the
Jordanian al-Watan newspaper that those Israelis remained absent that
day based on hints from the Israeli general security apparatus, the
Shabak, the fact which evoked unannounced suspicions on American
officials who wanted to know how the Israeli government learned about
the incident before it occurred."

This is the first recorded account of an urban legend that has swept
the Arab world. Not a single fact in it has ever been substantiated.
It appears to be based on concern expressed by the Israeli government
for the fate of 4,000 Israelis resident in New York, a small number
of whom worked at the World Trade Centre. Within a matter of days it
was no longer 4,000 Israelis who were supposed not to have turned up
to work, but 4,000 Jews; then reports appeared that "not a single
Jew" died on September 11. The story dug itself into the official
version of events, appearing in the mainstream Arab press as well as
on neo-Nazi and white supremacist websites based in America. An
opinion poll conducted on October 1 by, a sophisticated
English-language online news site, asked how readers regarded the
story of the 4,000 Jews not reporting to work. Fully 71 % thought
that it was a "possible fact".

Possible fact soon became established fact among government ministers
in the Arab world. According to a report in the Jerusalem Post on
October 19, "At a meeting in Damascus last week with a delegation
from the British Royal College of Defence Studies, [Syrian Defence
Minister Mustafa Tlass] said the Mossad planned the ramming of two
hijacked airliners into the WTC's towers as part of a Jewish
conspiracy. He also told the British visitors that the Mossad had
given thousands of Jewish employees of the WTC advance warning not to
go to work that day." Yosri Fouda, deputy executive director of the
London bureau of the television station Al-Jazeera, dismisses these
conspiracy theories as the work of "half-educated people". Al Manar,
the source of the story, according to its website is "the first Arab
establishment to stage an effective psychological warfare against the
Zionist enemy." Fouda describes it as "Hezbollah TV". "There are
hundreds of conspiracy theories in the absence of compelling
evidence," he says. "These ideas hit a nerve with those who don't
enjoy very basic human rights and liberties."

Does it matter to the west that absurd conspiracy theories like this
one have taken hold, not just in the Middle East but throughout the
Arab and Muslim world? Aren't they just the posturing of the
powerless? Perhaps, but three months after September 11, some of its
complex causes are starting to be revealed. As we dig deeper we find
that one root of the assault lay in the emergence of the doctrine of
Islamism, a fusion of a narrow, intolerant fundamentalist reading of
the Koran with a political movement opposed to all western social,
economic and cultural influence. One of its central beliefs is in the
enduring evil of Judaism and the Jews, irrespective of the Israeli-
Palestinian conflict and transcending borders or national disputes.
Why Jews? Because if America has been branded the enemy, the Great
Satan, and Jews are widely believed to "control" America, in the
gruesome logic that follows, it becomes "obvious" that Jews have
a "secret plan" to destroy Islam and the Arab world.

These ideas are neither of recent origin, nor confined to the Middle
East. In 1983, in his Pakistan-set novel Shame, Salman Rushdie wrote
of anti-semitism among those who had never met a Jew. More
worryingly, alliances are being made between Muslims who buy into
such theories, and the American neo-Nazi and white supremacist
parties that have found in them a gullible new audience to advance
theories discredited in the west for more than 50 years.

In the week before September 11 there were already disturbing signs
that anti-semitism was reaching a new pitch. The attack on New York
took place three days after the chaotic close of the Durban Anti-
Racism Conference in which delegates from Arab governments and NGOs
sought unsuccessfully to have Israel designated as a racist apartheid
state, and called for the establishment of a UN committee to
prosecute Israeli war crimes and to isolate totally the country. The
NGO resolution was not backed by major human rights groups such as
Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch. The European Roma Rights
Centre issued its own statement, written by Dimitrina Petrova, its
executive director: "The aggressive exclusion of Jewish participants
and the accompanying, blatantly intolerant anti-semitic spirit
plaguing the entire process, prompted us firmly to distance ourselves
from this forum's unfortunate outcome."

The language was so intemperate that Mary Robinson, the UN human
rights commissioner, refused to present it to the governmental
conference. The atmosphere at the conference has been described as
saturated with anti-semitism. In the exhibition area, a book of
cartoons reminiscent of the Nazi era, depicting Jews with talons for
hands and clutching blood-soaked money, was distributed by the Arab
Lawyers Union. One of the union's leaflets, in which the Star of
David (a religious symbol of Judaism, as well as an emblem of the
Israeli flag) was superimposed on the Nazi swastika, so shocked
Robinson that she declared at an official dinner: "When I see
something like this, I am a Jew." A session on anti- semitism at the
conference was broken up by protestors. There was opposition to
having anti-semitism designated a hate crime and Robinson was booed
when she referred to the holocaust against the Jews. Karen Pollock,
director of the Holocaust Education Trust, which provides schools in
Britain with resource materials and teacher training, represented the
Board of Deputies of British Jews at the conference. In a briefing to
the board on her return, she reported on the NGO forum: "Session
after session seemed to provide platforms for extreme anti-Jewish
propaganda. A session on hate crime not only had a speaker whose
thesis was that Israel's existence was a 'hate crime', but when one
person asked a question, he was heckled with shouts of, 'Jew! Jew!

That the campaigners on behalf of Palestinian rights were surprised
at the negative reaction to the blatantly anti-semitic material they
brought with them, indicates how commonplace such hate speech has
become in the Arab world, the extent to which it now forms a normal
part of political discourse. I asked Rina Attar Goren, European
director of the Middle East Media and Research Institute (an
independent organisation that monitors and translates the Middle East
press) if she could provide any recent examples of anti-semitic, as
opposed to anti-Zionist, material from the Arab and Palestinian
media. "How many do you need?" she asked me. "Five, 10, 100?" A few
hours later she emailed me 20 articles, dating from February 2000 to
this month, revealing an anti-semitic propaganda campaign that went
far beyond the limits of the Palestinian cause. Several were from the
state-sponsored Egyptian press. They included a number of pieces on
Holocaust denial (claiming that the Nazi genocide against the Jews
was a lie made up by Jews to wring money out of western governments,
and to justify taking over Arab lands) and repeated reiterations of
the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", an anti-semitic forgery
originating in 19th-century tsarist Russia that invented a secret
cabal of Jews plotting to take over the world.

The "Protocols" are enshrined in the Charter of the Palestinian
organisation Hamas: "After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand
from the Nile to the Euphrates," it says. "When they will have
digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further
expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the Protocols of the
Elders of Zion, and their present conduct is the best proof of what
we are saying." An Arabic translation of Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf is
being distributed by Al-Shurouq, a Ramallah-based book distributor,
to East Jerusalem and territories controlled by the Palestinian
Authority. According to an Agence France Presse report on September
8, the book, previously banned by Israel, had been allowed by the PA
and was sixth on the Palestinian bestseller list.

The PA, with EU funding, has been updating schoolbooks that had not
been replaced since the time of Jordanian rule. Most of the anti-
semitic stereotyping and incitement against Israel has gone, but last
year Israel and the PA met in Cyprus to discuss how the Holocaust
against the Jews should be represented. Dr Musa Al-Zu'but, chairman
of the Palestinian Legislative Council education committee, writing
in the PA newspaper Al-Risala on April 13, 2000, said: "There will be
no such attempt to include the history of the Holocaust in the
Palestinian curriculum ... The Holocaust has been exaggerated in
order to present the Jews as victims of a great crime, to justify
[the claim] that Palestine is necessary as a homeland for them, and
to give them the right to demand compensation."

The most extreme example I received was written by Dr Ali Aqleh
Ursan, chairman of the Arab Writers Association, in the Syrian
publication Al-Usbu' Al-Adabi on February 5 2000: "The covetous,
racist, and hated Jew Shylock, who cut the [pound of] flesh from
Antonio's chest with the knife of hatred, invades you with his money,
his modern airplanes, his missiles, and his nuclear bombs. You must
face a hard question: Do you, Christians and Muslims, wish to live,
survive and fulfill your convictions? Or are you Abraham's bleating
lambs on the threshold of the Jewish altar, who are led to be sent to
the Hereafter?"

Much of this is no more than empty rhetoric; the only weapon of those
who are helpless, dispossessed and preyed on by corrupt, undemocratic
governments. It stems in part from rage at poverty and the lack of
human rights (and for the Palestinians, experience of the humiliation
and brutality of occupation), and partly from religious
fundamentalism, which in all faiths tends to produce violent
extremism, Judaism being no exception. Last week, two members of the
Jewish Defence League, a far-right racist organisation banned in
Israel, were arrested by the FBI on charges of plotting to bomb the
King Fahd mosque in Culver City, California, as well as the offices
of Darrell Issa, an Arab-American congressman from southern
California. The JDL was founded by the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, a
racist demagogue whose follower Baruch Goldstein murdered 29
Palestinians in Hebron in 1994. Nor are secular movements
immune. "Death to the Arabs" is a familiar cry on the Israeli
football terraces among supporters of the Betar teams, which
originated in right-wing Zionist youth movements.

But the prevalence and intensity of anti-semitism in the Arab world
make it an altogether more chilling phenomenon. Hasem Saghiyeh, a
columnist on Al Hayat, a London based pan-Arab newspaper who has
written on and studied anti-semitism in the Arab and Muslim world,
describes it as dangerous and increasing at an unprecedented
speed. "There are no historic roots for anti-semitism in Islam," he
says. "It's a new-born phenomenon that began with contact between
Arabs and European Christians in the late 19th century. It really
emerges this century not out of myths about Jews, as it did in
Europe, but in a real and concrete fight for land. The process of
translating books like the Protocols of the Elders of Zion on a
popular scale started in Egypt in Nasser's time [the 50s and 60s],
but only the fundamentalist movement incorporated them into its
literature. Arab and Muslim anti-semitism is rooted in a certain
uneasiness with modernity because deep down it is seen in connection
with colonialism, and [to the fundamentalists] Jews are associated
with both communism and capitalism."

On September 11 many Americans discovered to their amazement that
large parts of the world hated their country. During the week in
Durban, many Jews discovered that the old hostility against them had
not died or been driven to the extreme, unrepentant margins. The
question they began to ask was whether there was a serious chance of
history repeating itself. Addressing a conference early in November,
Dr Jonathan Sacks, the chief rabbi of Britain, warned that Islamic
extremists were in danger of reawakening the same anti-Jewish hatred
that had led to the Holocaust: "The same demonisation, the same evil
fantasies ... as if humanity had learned nothing from the past." But
a major difference between the 30s and today is that there can be no
mass genocide against the Jewish populations of the countries that
produce the most virulent anti-semitism, because those countries have
few or no Jewish citizens. Between 1948 and 1956, half a million
left, fled or were expelled from the Arab world in the aftermath of
the creation of Israel, quarter of a million from Morocco alone. The
export of these ideas is the danger, when they enter the mainstream
of British, European and American Muslim communities through
newspapers, websites and sermons in mosques.

White supremacist hate-groups, such as America's neo-Nazi National
Alliance, have seen in the anti-semitism of the Arab and Muslim world
an opportunity to make strategic alliances under the pretence of
support for Palestinian rights. According to the Anti-Defamation
League, the US organisation that campaigns against anti-semitism,
Muslims, a weekly English-language newspaper based in New York,
reprinted on October 5 an article by William Pierce (leader of the
alliance), under the headline: "Israel Wants America to Send Ground
Troops, Whip Muslim Armies, Take Over their Countries and Install
Puppet Governments That Will Follow the Jews' Orders." In November,
the alliance organised a march on an Illinois mosque with the purpose
of attacking Muslims. At the march hundreds of members of an
organisation called the World Church of the Creator handed out
recruitment leaflets quoting Bin Laden's call for a war on Jews and
demanding an end to American support for Israel. But the same
organisation has another leaflet showing a picture of the WTC attack,
asking: "Are you prepared to fight the Arab holy war on American
soil? End Muslim immigration now!"

The anti-semitic canards and forgeries originate in Christian Europe,
(some centuries old, such as the Norwich blood libel that accused
Jews of the ritual killing of Christian children for the Passover
seder) and were exported from the west to the Muslim world. Long ago
discredited here, those myths and conspiracy theories are being sent
back again, where they are used as a propaganda tool by a hard core
of racists.

The perception here in the UK that British Jews - affluent,
influential, successful - have little now to fear from serious racist
attack is not mirrored inside the Jewish community. Mike Whine,
director of defence for the board of deputies, says: "Generally, Jews
are more settled and more economically comfortable than ever before
in history, but there is an acute growing sense of being under threat
and that this is changing its form. More copies of the Protocols are
being sold in Malaysia and Pakistan than among the far right in
Germany. The level of physical attacks against us has increased
substantially and this is a marked international trend. In France and
the US, synagogues now have to be protected by the police and the
army." On December 2, the largest neo-Nazi march since the end of the
second world war took place in Berlin. The Bulawayo Chronicle, which
supports the government of Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe,
recently published a 3,000-word article alleging Jewish
responsibility for the ongoing economic problems facing the country.

The Jewish community in Britain has referred to the police 13 cases
of written incitement to murder Jews. A leaflet distributed in
October last year in Stamford Hill, north London included a quote
from a commentary on the Koran that states: "The hour [ie the
Messianic age] will not come until the Muslims kill the Jews." So far
there seems to be no political will to prosecute. Meanwhile, on the
advice of the police acting on operational intelligence, the
community is on maximum security. In the US, 73% of all reported hate
crimes on the basis of religion in 2000 were against Jews, according
to official FBI figures, though this may reflect a greater confidence
in reporting them than among other groups of more recent immigrants.
Attacks on mosques since September 11 will undoubtedly transform
those figures dramatically.

Whine argues that anti-semitic attacks have not gone away, they are
merely held in check by ferocious security arrangements that create
an image of a defensive, paranoid, suspicious religion. Rabbi Tony
Bayfield, chief executive of the Reform Movement of British Jews,
says: "The Sternberg centre where I work is supposed to be a major
face of the Jewish community to the outside world, and I don't like
having high gates and security cameras. What kind of message does it
send out? But every synagogue has to be guarded for Sabbath service,
and there is no question that the police think it's necessary."

Until now, when Jews looked for support at a time of rising anti-
semitism, their natural allies were the anti-racist left. But because
anti-semitism is now inextricably linked with the situation in Israel
and Palestine, and because of the resurgence of the Zionism is Racism
argument, which rejects a two-state solution, some critics of Israel
no longer seem willing to make a distinction between those Jews who
support and those Jews who oppose the Israeli occupation. Any support
of Israel's right to exist as a sovereign state under any conditions
at all is branded as Zionism, and hence collusion in racism and
apartheid. In October, the poet Tom Paulin wrote to the Guardian to
demand that if it employs journalists who hold such views, they
should declare their "Zionist credentials". Beyond the left there is
a widespread belief in Britain, reinforced by news reporting and
comment pieces, that the attack on September 11 would never have
happened if it had not been for Israeli brutality in Gaza and the
West Bank. Others go further and argue that the existence of Israel
and its support by the US is a threat to world peace. Many Jews now
feel that they are being made the scapegoats for a complex phenomenon
combining globalisation, the rise of fundamentalism, oil interests,
anti-Americanism and Middle East politics - that if the third world
war begins it will, as usual, be blamed on "the Jews".

The anti-semitism unleashed in the past three months poses complex
questions for Jews, Muslims and those who campaign against injustices
suffered by others. It will be interesting to see, in time to come,
how well any of us does in addressing them. As a British Jew I can
offer some ways in which some of us can begin to construct a defence
against ant-semitism. It would involve the left realigning itself:
ceasing the demonisation of the Jewish majority who defend Israel's
existence; making alliances with Jews, such as those who support
Peace Now and Gush Shalom, which are actively seeking an end to the
horrific violence of the past year, one which would provide a just
solution to the long agony of the Palestinians. Both the left and
British Muslims would have to begin to recognise the massive rise of
anti-semitism in the Arab and Muslim world for what it is: anti-
semitism rather than any cogent analysis of the problems of the
Middle East. It would involve British Muslims announcing in their
press, their mosques and their community centres that Muslims are
being manipulated into believing myths, urban legends and racist
slanders peddled by those with no interest in tolerance, human rights
or justice; that Islamophobia and anti-semitism fall under the same
heading - racist scapegoating. In fact, hearteningly this process is
already beginning to occur. Writing in this week's edition of the
Egyptian newspaper Al Haram, the columnist Hani Shukrallah discusses
the imminent televisation throughout the Arab world of a new
dramatisation of the Protocols. How, he asks, can the Arab world
preserve its civilisation "by reproducing one of the ugliest products
of the west's?"

British Jews have long been embroiled in an argument among themselves
that mirrors the fierce debates inside Israel. It seems axiomatic to
some of us who have maintained our faith with the peace activists of
Gush Shalom and Peace Now that if justice were to be delivered to the
Palestinians in the form of a state based on UN Resolution 242, and
solutions found to the problems of the division of Jerusalem and the
status of the refugees, most of the Arab anti-semitism would wither
away. Not all Jews, particularly on the right, are convinced that a
two-state solution will fully satisfy the Palestinian demand for the
return of their homeland, particularly when the maps in the new
textbooks in Palestinian schools explicitly refer to the whole of
Israel as Palestinian territory. After the recent bloodbath
perpetrated by Hamas, who have the most virulent anti-semitism
enshrined in their charter, the tendency is for the slogans of
peaceniks to turn to ashes in the mouth. Instead we think of the
assault by the Holocaust deniers of the Arab and Palestinian world on
our right to remember the dead of Shoah, and if we wish to speak now,
it is to say, defiantly: "Am Yisroel Chai" - the children of Israel

But these are not the only Hebrew words that are important to us. My
own belief - which deepens with each incursion by the Israeli army
into Palestinian territory - is that we can survive without the
settlements and the policies of Ariel Sharon, whose endgame is to
foment civil war among the Palestinians as an excuse to re-occupy and
turn Gaza and the West Bank into Lebanon. We cannot survive without
what animates our culture: Jewish morality. Not without "Tzedek"
(justice) or "Rachmanut" (compassion.) We cannot survive if we forget
that they apply not only to ourselves but to others. To all of us -
Jews, Muslims, activists on behalf of Palestinian rights - Primo
Levi's urgent message still applies: "Shutting his mouth, his eyes
and his ears, he built for himself the illusion of not knowing, hence
not being an accomplice to the things taking place in front of his
very door."
