I am, as we speak, reviewing the footage from the recent conference, Combatting the Delegitimation of Israel, which my company videotaped. The morning was devoted to exposing the issues. Efraim Karsh pointed out the attempt to deny Jewish claims to the land of Israel, from its inception by the Arab states, Egypt, Trans Jordan and Syria, who were eager to divide the the current land of Israel and divide the spoils among themselves in 1948. Asaf Ramirowsky analyzed the history of the “refugee problem” and UNRWA, pointing out that UNRWA, the recipient of Billions of dollars has a life of its own, and has no interest in resolving the refugee issue.
Other enemies of Israel are holocaust deniers and leftist internationalists, both Jews and non-Jews who deem the creation of the nation state of Israel to be a “mistake”. Sally Zerker pointed out the anti-semitism seminal to the God of the leftists, Karl Marx. Barbara Kay analyzed the leftist intelligentsia in Israel that also sides with the leftist ideological camp.
Richard Landes, pointed out the “psy-ops” and “memes” that are part of the delegitimation war against Israel. Israel is being painted as the “Nazi Goliath” dominating the Palestinian David, because she dares to defend herself and her people with all means necessary. Mordechai Nissan, was the standard bearer for Jewish pride, as he pointed out the remarkable history of the Jews, a people, most loyal to each other, and yet also most aware, and concerned for others.
Catherine Chatterley and Charles Small ably described how the virus of anti-semitism has reignited in the West in respectable academic circles. Charles Small pointed out the danger of anti-semitism as it has a genocidal intent as regards Jews and Israel.
And here is Catherine Chatterley speaking about the resurgence of anti-semitism in our midst.
Prof. Krantz ended the conference with a resolution and a call to all of us, Jews, non-Jews, individuals, and institutions, to do everything in our power to expose and counter this situation in defence of Jews, and the Jewish State of Israel.
A Combatting the Delegitimation of Israel highlights video has been posted and CIJR will be posting the full conference talks on their website and is also planning to create a DVD for educational purposes.
