In the spirit of the Stockholm Declaration that states: “With humanity still scarred by …antisemitism and xenophobia the international community shares a solemn responsibility to fight those evils” the committee on Antisemitism and Holocaust Denial called the IHRA Plenary in Budapest 2015 to adopt the following working definition of antisemitism. On 26 May 2016, the Plenary in Bucharest decided to: Adopt the following non-legally binding working definition of antisemitism:

“Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”


To guide IHRA in its work, the following examples may serve as illustrations:


Manifestations might include the targeting of the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity. However, criticism of Israel similar to that leveled against any other country cannot be regarded as antisemitic. Antisemitism frequently charges Jews with conspiring to harm humanity, and it is often used to blame Jews for “why things go wrong.” It is expressed in speech, writing, visual forms and action, and employs sinister stereotypes and negative character traits. Contemporary examples of antisemitism in public life, the media, schools, the workplace, and in the religious sphere could, taking into account the overall context, include, but are not limited to:

 Calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews in the name of a radical ideology or an extremist view of religion.

 Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective — such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.

 Accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, or even for acts committed by non-Jews.

 Denying the fact, scope, mechanisms (e.g. gas chambers) or intentionality of the genocide of the Jewish people at the hands of National Socialist Germany and its supporters and accomplices during World War II (the Holocaust).

Repeated for emphasis.

 “Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”

Hajo Meyer

Hajo Meyer (born August 121924 – 23 August2014) was a Jewish-German-Dutch physicist and political activist.

Quotes[edit]

  • Auschwitz existed within history, not outside of it. The main lesson I learned there is simple: We Jews should never, ever become like our tormentors …
    Since 1967 it has become obvious that political Zionism has one monolithic aim: Maximum land in Palestine with a minimum of Palestinians on it. This aim is pursued with an inexcusable cruelty as demonstrated during the assault on Gaza. The cruelty is explicitly formulated in the Dahiye doctrine of the military and morally supported by the Holocaust religion.
    I am pained by the parallels I observe between my experiences in Germany prior to 1939 and those suffered by Palestinians today. I cannot help but hear echoes of the Nazi mythos of "blood and soil" in the rhetoric of settler fundamentalism which claims a sacred right to all the lands of biblical Judea and Samaria. The various forms of collective punishment visited upon the Palestinian people -- coerced ghettoization behind a "security wall"; the bulldozing of homes and destruction of fields; the bombing of schools, mosques, and government buildings; an economic blockade that deprives people of the water, food, medicine, education and the basic necessities for dignified survival -- force me to recall the deprivations and humiliations that I experienced in my youth. This century-long process of oppression means unimaginable suffering for Palestinians.

Hajo Meyer (12 August 1924 – 23 August 2014) was a Jewish German-Dutch physicist and an anti-Zionist political activist.[1][2]

Early life[edit]

Born in Bielefeld, in 1938 Meyer fled Nazi Germany to the Netherlands alone, without his parents.[3] He went into hiding in 1943, but was arrested after a year and spent ten months in Auschwitz. His parents, who had also been deported to Auschwitz from Germany, did not survive.[citation needed]

Post-Holocaust[edit]

After the war, Meyer returned to the Netherlands, and studied theoretical physics. He eventually became director of the Phillips Physics Laboratory (NatLab). After his retirement he took courses in Englandand worked as a builder of new violins and violas.[citation needed]

Later career[edit]

In his later years, Meyer became politically active, including as director of A Different Jewish Voice. He wrote Het einde van het Jodendom (The End of Judaism) in 2003, which accuses Israel of abusing the Holocaust to justify crimes against the Palestinians. He was a member of the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network. He participated in the 2011 "Never Again – For Anyone" tour. He claimed Zionism predates fascism, that Zionists and fascists had a history of cooperation (Nazi/Zionist cooperation was the subject of 51 Documents: Zionist Collaboration with the Nazis, which was collected and edited by Lenni Brenner), charging, among other things, that Israel wants to foment anti-Semitism in the world to encourage more Jews to migrate to Israel.[4]
Meyer spoke in favor of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel.[5] Meyer was a member of the Dutch GreenLeft.[citation needed]

Death[edit]

On 23 August 2014, Meyer died in his sleep in Heiloo, Netherlands at the age of 90.[citation needed]

Reproducing the Discussion in full has been frustrated or impeded by the strident hysterics of @closely_watched Bohumil Hairball. I was accused in the strongest terms with the worse sorts of Adhominem and straw man mendacity, failing to meet his target the Sorry Hairball seems rather to have choked on his own split hairs it seems. And blocked me and deleted his disproved allegations.


Happily the HTML Cache of Mr Hairballs strident and extravagant argumentation allows us to share some of his home spun cloth, if a little threadbare.

Some thoughts to help consider the above with respect to Context, Motivation and the Gnashers own preferred definition of Anti Semitism. Vis.

However, criticism of Israel similar to that leveled against any other country cannot be regarded as antisemitic.


 Context and Motivation



A certain mother habitually rewards her small son with ice cream after he eats his spinach. What 2 additional information would you need to be able to predict whether the child will: a. Come to love or hate spinach, b. Love or hate ice cream, or c. Love or hate Mother? We devoted one or two sessions of the class to exploring the many ramifications of this question, and it became clear to me that all the needed additional information concerned the context of the mother ' s and son's behaviour. In fact, the phenomenon of context and the closely related phenomenon of "meaning " defined a divisionbetween the "hard" sciences and the sort of science which I was trying to build. Gradually I discovered that what made it difficult to tell the class what the course was about was the fact that my way of thinking was different from theirs (Bateson)




 In a review which appeared in the Historische Zeitschrift journal on 2 April 1986 Klaus Hildebrand called Nolte’s essay "Between Myth and Revisionism" “trailblazing”.[50] In the same review Hildebrand argued Nolte had in a praiseworthy way sought:
"to incorporate in historicizing fashion that central element for the history of National Socialism and of the "Third Reich" of the annihilatory capacity of the ideology and of the regime, and to comprehend this totalitarian reality in the interrelated context of Russian and German history".[51]


51.  Kershaw, p. 232; original remarks appeared in Historische Zeitschrift, Volume 242, 1986, p. 465
The philosopher Helmut Fleischer, in an essay first published in the Nürnberger Zeitung newspaper on September 20, 1986, defended Nolte against Habermas on the grounds that Nolte was only seeking to place the Holocaust into a wider political context of the time.[64] Fleischer accused Habermas of seeking to impose on Germans a left-wing moral understanding of the Nazi period and of creating a “moral” Sondergericht (Special Court).[65] Fleischer argued that Nolte was only seeking the "historicization" of National Socialism that Martin Broszat had called for in a 1985 essay by trying to understand what caused National Socialism, with a special focus on the fear of communism.[66]

AS TO THE ADMISSIBILITY OF

                      Application No. 25096/94
                      by Otto E.F.A. REMER
                      against Germany

     The European Commission of Human Rights (First Chamber) sitting
in private on 6 September 1995, the following members being present:



 In its decision, the Court of Justice confirmed the findings ofthe Regional Court that the mass murder of Jews in the gas chamber ofconcentration camps during the Second World War were historicallyproven and therefore common knowledge.  The taking of evidence on suchmatters was consequently not necessary.  In this respect, the Court ofJustice referred to the constant case-law of the Federal ConstitutionalCourt, its own constant case-law as well as the jurisprudence of the German Courts of Appeal.

This article makes the assumption that there is only one zionism.
It would be a mistake to assume there is only one Jew and to be anti-Jew because of the actions of one person.

It is also possible that deciding to be anti-zionist because you find Netanyahu-zionism appalling is a similar mistake.
How did Netanyahu-zionism - an extreme form of zionism - get to define zionism?
I personally reject Netanyahu-zioinism because in my view it cannot lead to a solution to existing problems in the middle east. It can only make those problems worse and worse.
That does not mean I reject zionism - the zionism of the early years of the state as practised by the few Israelis I knew. My understanding of their vision and their life seemed to me something that could have led to a stable future.
That was pre-wall, pre-extreme settlement policy days.
I am not convinced that Netanyahu-zionism was an inevitable outcome of those days. I could be wrong. I am not sure how anyone could prove that Netanyahu-zionism is the only possible zionism. I certainly don't understand why so many people act as if Netanyahu-zionism is the only possible zionism.

Hi Kevin, in the comments the whole polarity and polarisation alienation of the debate plays out . Over and over the same taunts are rehearsed.

Roger Lewis Because that sort of censorship is fascism.

The Malicious Communications act is already in a test case against an alleged Anti-Semite. Bartley really is a reactionary Green Fascist.

The Gas Chamber of Sherlock Holmes





A link to download a PDF copy is below, but we’d like to introduce you to the book first. If you’re familiar with “Sherlock,” please scroll down.
Among scholars and the general public, the prevailing consensus holds that millions of European Jews were sent to death in gas chambers as part of an official Nazi policy of mass extermination during the Second World War. So entrenched is this consensus that throughout the Western world those who publicly question its accuracy are now routinely subject to censorship, academic censure, and even criminal prosecution. In contemporary society, no other species of dissident scholarship is met with comparably illiberal reaction.
In an intellectual atmosphere  poisoned by acrimony and haunted by the specter of persecution, The Gas Chamber of Sherlock Holmes stands as a calm, deftly reasoned, and highly original affirmation of intellectual freedom. Drawing on extensive empirical and documentary evidence as well as methods of cultural criticism conventionally eschewed by field historians, Samuel Crowell argues that the “canonical” Holocaust gassing claim can be traced to a fateful crisis of modernism — a crisis revealed in popular texts and long-forgotten cultural ephemera. Spanning from the earliest broadcast rumors to the extermination narrative that was sealed at Nuremberg, Crowell’s probing analysis permits us to consider how a grim story emerged and evolved in the cyclonic momentum of an era marked by social upheaval, total war, and unprecedented technological change.
Though it has achieved the status of an underground classic, The Gas Chamber of Sherlock Holmes has until now been available only in samizdat editions and on the Internet. This definitive edition has been updated and revised and includes a new introduction by the author. In addition to the title essay, supplemental texts include an appended restatement of Crowell’s important monograph, “Bomb Shelters at Birkenau,” as well as the never-before-published essay, “The Holocaust in Retrospect.”
If you would like to learn a bit more about the book before diving in, we encourage you to download the original Press Kit, which includes an in-depth interview with Samuel Crowell conducted by Chip Smith of Nine-Banded Books.

"I would endeavor to put them into historical context, compare narratives, seek effects in later narratives, read the narratives for internal consistency, and so forth. These are all standard methods for literary criticism and that is why from the beginning I approached my essay as a kind of a “literary analysis.”

    In The Guide for the Perplexed, amongst the seven causes of contradiction, this is the seventh.The other six will be found at this
    link.

    Seventh cause: It is sometimes necessary to introduce such metaphysical matter as may partly be disclosed, but must partly be concealed: while, therefore, on one occasion the object which the author has in view may demand that the metaphysical problem be treated as solved in one way, it may be convenient on another occasion to treat it as solved in the opposite way. The author must endeavour, by concealing the fact as much as possible, to prevent the uneducated reader from perceiving the contradiction.

    In William Blakes Poem, The Everlasting Gospel this is what he means when he states that 
    "Both read the Bible day & nightBut thou readst black where I read white"
    Mr. Rossetti's sense of propriety, guided by his entire lack of mental companionship with Blake, has led him to sup- press two lines about the nose in the dedication of the poem he professes to publish in full for the first time. It should run: —
    "The Vision of Christ that thou dost see,
    [ Page 33 ]

    The Vision of Christ that thou dost see
    Is my Visions Greatest Enemy
    Thine has a great hook nose like thine
    Mine has a snub nose like to mine
    5

    Thine is the Friend of All Mankind
    Mine speaks in parables to the Blind
    Thine loves the same world that mine hates
    Thy Heaven doors are my Hell Gates
    Socrates taught what Melitus
    10 Loathd 
    as a Nations bitterest Curse
    And Caiphas was in his own Mind
    A benefactor of Mankind
    Both read the Bible day & night
    But thou readst black where I read white



    A Song for @Gnasher.
