Twice in five weeks, Israeli media accused Germany of being anti-Semitic. The twist this time was the reproduction of cartoons published in German media as a proof of their inherent racism.
On July 3, 2013, Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot published an article titled “Anti-Semitic drawing in German paper: Israel a voracious Moloch.” On August 13, the same newspaper continued its odd tirade against Israel’s second-most strategic military partner (Israel’s Fleet of German Submarines and Second Strike) in another enlightening piece: “German Cartoon: Netanyahu Poisoned a Peace Dove.”
Let’s take a look at the art:
Netanyahu, Dove Poisoner
Stuttgarter Zeitung, a German daily newspaper
“Germany presents” the drawing’s subheading reads and then elaborates:
“For decades Israel receives arms, sometimes for free. Israel’s detractors believe Israel to be a voracious Moloch.
Peter Beinart condemns this situation.”
Published in July 2013, by Süddeutsche Zeitung, a German daily newspaper from Munich
Is anti-semitism justified in Germany?
The first and newest cartoon was described by the newspaper as “brilliantly anti-Semitic.”* “The image of Jews as peace-poisoners was in common use by Nazis,” the newspaper educates its readers. Before letting them analyze the issue, it adds “Israel’s Ambassador in Germany delivered a sharp protest to the newspaper’s editor.”
The cartoon shows Netanyhau adding poison to a piece of bread. On the poison bottle there is a sticker saying “Settlements’ Building.” Near the bench Netanyahu is sitting on is a dove holding a branch of olive. Is this anti-Semitic? Let’s describe the second cartoon before answering the obvious.
It shows a Moloch** idol representing Israel being served food by Germany. “Germany presents” the drawing’s subheading reads and then elaborates: “For decades Israel receives arms, sometimes for free. Israel’s detractors believe Israel to be a voracious Moloch. Peter Beinart condemns this situation.”
Beinart is a Jewish professor and journalist who often criticizes Israel’s treatment of Palestinians. In his 2012 book, The Crisis of Zionism, he called for a boycott on settlement products and warned that Israel’s policies towards the Palestinians were creating a rift between the American Jewish community and Israel.
|Telling the truth cannot be defined as anti-Semitism. Is there any base to the accusation of Netanyahu being a poisoner? Not just a peace-poisoner, can we find any proven references that he is a spiritual descendent of the Borgias?
Khaled Mashal was the target of an assassination attempt carried out by the Israeli Mossad under orders of the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
On September 25, 1997, two Mossad agents carrying Canadian passports entered Jordan and injected Mashal with an unknown nerve toxin. A few days later, Netanyahu surrendered to international pressure and provided the antidote. Toxin and antidote were developed at the IIBR, a human-loving institution which also develops anthrax.
This is enough to prove that Netanyahu is a poisoner; in current terms, he can be categorized as a bio-terrorist.
Examples of this disturbing behavior of the Zionist state abound. I described a few in Fact: Israel Poisons.
Mr. Netanyahu, describing you as a dove poisoner is nothing but a softened description of the truth and cannot be considered anti-Semitism. The latter claim is nothing but brilliant propaganda in the best of Goebbels’ legacy. You are a poisoner. Fact.
Is Israel being referred to as a “Moloch” a show of anti-Semitism? The word refers to idolatry.** In other words to someone who doesn’t “have a God.”+ Netanyahu, you don’t respect your fellow humans. You attack them, even your own kin. You poison their wells. If you don’t respect others, then you don’t respect God. You are an idolater, worshipping wooden Molochs.
Moreover, after the peace process with the Palestinians was renewed a few days ago, you started an amazing campaign of provocations against your partners, clearly poisoning the dove of peace (Israel Breaks Truce).
Netanyahu—you shiny Borgia, you brilliant Goebbels—do you define any factual critic on you and Israel as anti-Semitism?
* I used the Hebrew original text. It used the Hebrew word “mub’hak” which is related to the word “brilliant” and is derived from the same root beth.hei.kof which refers to shiny things. Despite that, it is often translated as “distinct.”
** A Middle-Eastern idol which entered European cultures. Amos 5:26 “But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.” The word is formed by conjugating the word for “king” (melech) as if it was “shame” (boshet).
+ “Ein lahem Elohim!” is Hebrew for “They have no God!” This is said towards people (or individuals in the singular form, “ein lo elohim”) who stops at nothing, that have no fear of God and will commit any atrocity.
If God means nothing to such a person, much less would state laws, which are mere commandments of men. In the Israeli reality, this often depicts secular Zionist civil servants and settlers.
