South Carolina Defines Criticism of Israel as “Anti-semitism”
A new law passed in South Carolina declares that being critical of Israel is now being anti-semitic. It will be the first state to have such an idiotic and unconstitutional law.
The law goes into effect July 1.
So there is no confusion on what the law defines as “anti-semitism,” the bill itself provides a list of different definitions of the phrase. For those wondering, according to the text of the bill, the term includes the following:
A certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of anti-semitism are directed toward Jewish or non-jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.
Calling for, aiding or justifying the killing or harming of Jews; making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as a collective; accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, the state of Israel or even for acts committed by non-jews.
Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust. Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interest of their own nations.
Using the symbols and images associated with classic anti-semitism to characterize Israel or Israelis.
Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.
Blaming Israel for all inter-religious or political tensions. Applying double standards by requiring of it [Israel] a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.
Multilateral organizations focusing on Israel only for peace or human rights investigations.
Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination and denying Israel the right to exist, provided, however, that criticism of Israel similar to that leveled against any other country cannot be regarded as anti-semitic.
While some of these prohibited expressions could be considered reasonable, the entire concept of antiSemitism is simply wrong and is a psychological ploy that should be resisted. Even though Israel and Jews have tried to redefine the word “Semite” to mean only a Jew, it actually means a person from Southwest Asia. So, in reality, being anti-semitic means being against anyone from Southwest Asia, not just Jews. Contrary to what Jews want everyone to believe, they are not the only southwestern Asians; nor were they the first. The region was inhabited for thousands of years by highly developed non-jewish cultures and remains inhabited primarily by non-jews.
Merriam-webster defines “Semite” as “A member of any of a number of peoples of ancient southwestern Asia including the Akkadians, Phoenicians, Hebrews and Arabs; a descendant of these peoples; a member of a modern people speaking a Semitic language.”
Anti-jewish sentiment has long been a problem for Jews. A lot of people don’t like Jewish culture for good reason and abhor the criminal actions of Israel and the Jews who carry out those criminal actions, and this anti-jewish sentiment goes back to when the Israelites came out of Egypt and start attacking other nations.
The reason why many people don’t like the Jewish religion is because it is a culture of arrogance and hatred and violence toward non-jews. One only has to read the Torah and Talmud to understand why many Jews act the way they do toward non-jews and why so many people choose to express negative feelings toward Jews.
The Talmud (Hebrew for “study”) is one of the foundational texts of the Jewish people. It is the written record of oral rabbinic teachings that spans a period from the first century CE to the sixth and seventh centuries. The rabbinic teachings of the Talmud explain in great detail how the commandments of the Torah are to be carried out and are supported by modern rabbis. There has been no revision or updating of these fundamental beliefs, and Jews are expected to adhere to them.
Even though there is no genetic uniqueness to Jews, it is a fundamental Jewish belief that they are the master race and of divine origin while all other people are subhuman and of satanic origin: Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson claimed that Jewish people are an extension of God and that Gentiles are destined to serve the Jews. He also said, “Two contrary types of soul exist; a non-jewish soul comes from three satanic spheres, while the Jewish soul stems from holiness.” Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh supports the claim by stating: “Gentile souls are of a completely different and inferior order. They are totally evil, with no redeeming qualities whatsoever.” Rabbi Manis Friedman claims: “The only way to fight a moral war is the Jewish way: Destroy their holy sites. Kill men, women and children (and cattle).”
Any sane and reasonably intelligent person who actually studies Judaism can only come to the conclusion that it is a religion of hatred and insanity and should be contained so that it does not spread its poison too far. Of course, many Jews are not devout, do not adhere to the Torah or Talmud or other Jewish texts and don’t subscribe to fundamental Jewish beliefs – just as many Muslims do not adhere to fundamental Islamic requirements. There are many people who identify with a particular ancient religion with backwards beliefs who are good people and who make important contributions to human society and oppose the excesses of their religion. Many Jews are actually anti-israel.
It is wrong to discriminate against an individual because of their religious beliefs, gender, their ethnic background, the color of their skin, etc. Every human deserves to have the same opportunities and to be treated fairly.
But Israel is not an individual. It is a nation with the responsibilities and obligations to uphold the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which it signed and is bound by yet refuses to adhere to. Israel continually violates the basic human rights of not just Palestinians but anyone who stands up to it.
Israel is indeed a rogue nation that commits serious criminal offenses and interferes with the governments of other nations. It has corrupted the American federal government and many state governments. It has undue influence in universities and mass media. It uses its network of Jews and sympathizers in U.S. finance and media to increase and spread its influence and undermine democracy, as can clearly be seen by the subversion of the U.S. Constitution in the passage of the law in South Carolina and similar laws in other states.
Israel should be strongly opposed, and those who support Israel should be opposed and held accountable for Israel's many crimes, but that doesn’t mean that Jews should be hated. Expressing anger toward any injustice is righteous and justified, but expressing hatred toward an entire group of people is not.
Tolerating Israel’s aggression can only lead to a further erosion of our basic human rights and possibly much worse.
