Exposing IAW and BDS on campus

bdsI have been attending the IAW Israel/apartheid week and BDS  lectures and and observing their behavior in Montreal for at least five years.

The Palestinian Mafia on campus systematically takes over student union positions, something not too difficult to do since most students are totally uninterested in student government issues, preferring to focus on study and grades and getting that degree. The student union fees are automatically deducted from students’ fees.
The “student union” in Montreal is not part of the university and does not come under the jurisdiction of the university. It comes under the labor law and the jurisdiction of labor unions. They become therefor untouchable unless students wake up to where their funds are going.

I know this because of personal experience.
In Montreal, and I can see that IAW and BDS uses the same tactic everywhere.  On campuses all over North America the same speakers and programs are offered. It is clear that they are a well organized franchise having very little to do with student leadership.

Their most recent pretty boy is Steven Salaita, the professor who was declined for a tenure position at the University of Illinois for his poor scholarship and egregious tweets regarding the recent war in Gaza.
I attended his talk here in Montreal last week and recorded it.
 The hall was full of those and only those who are already convinced of the “cause”. They tried to dissuade me from attending. They wanted to know “why I was there”. I was the only one in the room not clapping and not adulating the speaker.

The other modus operandi of BDS and IAW is to infiltrate left wing student organizations, and student media. Check out the student run media In Montreal, CUTV, a tv lab run by student union funds, and the student run radio station, CKUT 90.3fm, that is totally infiltrated by professional Palestinian activist students. In addition the students infiltrate left wing student causes and organizations, convincing them that they are in the same boat as the Palestinians. They prey on underdog issues, aboriginal causes, feminism, queer issues, sexual harrassment, infiltrating these student organizations and comparing Israel and the Palestine issues to South Africa and its apartheid era. (Any scholar can differentiate between these two but these people thrive on the innocence and ignorance of students seducing them to these “social justice” causes by false information and a false narrative: ie, that the Israelis are Jewish “colonizers” who have stolen Arab lands. That the Israelis are committing “genocide” vis a vis the Palestinians. The BDS mafia has no respect for history or numbers. Very few students are in a position to check them. In addition to bringing false information about the Israel/Palestine situation, by bringing rogue Israeli soldiers and “professors” Jewish, and otherwise, in this way they wage a psychological campaign for the hearts and minds of college students.
And sadly I have seen even legitimate tenured college professors supporting them. Because the left wing rhetoric can be compelling. I used to have an uncle who while not being a leftie himself was wont to pronounce, “the world is veering to the left”…that was before the fall of Communism.

Students and the public are beginning to understand this situation. This year 2014/2015, the McGill student union brought two motions for the university to boycott and divest from Israeli enterprises. They were defeated in the autumn term because students made a concerted effort to invite students who never attend student GA’s to come out and vote “No”. The student leaders then put it on the agenda again in the spring term close to exams. This time in addition to student mobilization, Justin Trudeau himself, an alum of McGill showed up to denounce the motion and it was defeated 267 – 217.
Ryan Bellrose, a Metis from Calgary, has personally waged a one man campaign to show how the aboriginal situation in Canada is more like the Israeli position than the Palestinian position.

But how many people can involve themselves in a serious way in this ugly battle.
In addition to the blogs that I have published on my own site (www.askabigailProductions.com)  and the blogs that Ryan Bellrose has published (http://www.cuwi.ca/ryan-bellerose.html), I am aware of several organizations that have stepped up to the plate to expose this situation. SPME, Scholars for Peace in the Middle East), CIJR (Canadian Institute for Jewish Research), ISGAP (Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism).

I would love to hear from you on this issue.

Has Anti-semitism Become Politically Correct?

bds bigotry double standards -bigotry “Anti-semitism”, has it become politically correct? Over the weekend I had the opportunity to speak about anti-semitism, BDS, Jews and Israel at the  Freedom Talk Conference in Edmonton.

Here is what I said:

I am a Hungarian born Jew who was born into the post Holocaust world.  I did not grow up with any overt anti-semitism in Montreal. Many of us thought that sharing what had happened in Europe during World War ll, would immunize  well meaning persons everywhere against the scourge of anti-Semitism, indiscriminate attacks against Jews for the sole reason that they were Jews or desendants of Jews. However, reports from all quarters of the world includng Canada report that antisemitism – prejudice and gratuitous assaults against Jews because they are Jews has returned with a vengeance. Here is a link to a report on antisemitic resurgence in Europe from an EU committee that has prepared data on this subject.

Of course, it’s impossible to have a conversation  in the present time about anti-semitism without mentioning Israel, and the Israel/Palestine conflict which has always been also an Arab/Jewish conflict.I would agree that  it is hardly anti-semitic to criticize policies between Israel and the Palestinians, or even to pressure the Israelis. However It becomes anti-semitic, when facts are distorted, problems elsewhere are simply ignored, and Israel alone is singled out to be chastised.

The record of the United Nations vis-a-vis Israel amply demonstrates this disparate and disproportional criticism. About 3/4 of all the resolutions taken up by the general assembly have condemned Israel. in spite of many other and more serious human rights violators such as China, Korea, Russia, Iran, Pakistan and the list goes on and on.

UN Watch was created to monitor this anti-Jewish, anti-Israel bias and below is  a link to the latest example posted by UN Watch.

http://www.unwatch.org/site/apps/nlnet/content2.aspx?c=bdKKISNqEmG&b=1317489&ct=13398889

Moreover, It was a  UN UNESCO conference  in Durban 2001, on human rights, that singled out Israel and Israel alone for human rights violations, and coined the term “zionism is racism”. This goes along with calling Israel a genocidal entity, picturing Israel as a greedy Jew with a hooked nose in cartoons gobbling up Palestinians as was noted recently in “The Economist”.

You may have also heard about the BDS movement, – Boycotts Divestment and Sanctions – proposed against Israeli by Palestinians and  supported by left wing academics, human rights NGOs like Oxfam,  some churches and now the  European Union which really should know better. The BDS movement proposes that “since Israel Is an “apartheid” state practicing “racist” policies the whole world should boycott Israeli academics, Israeli artists and  Israeli industry. Anyone aware of history could easily expose that Israel does not practice apartheid as it was spelled out in South Africa and that Israel is not and has never been racist.  But how do you defend yourself against these “wifebeating” charges?

Every year in the guise of a “conference” the pro Palestinian factions organize a one week BDS conference on campuses all over the US and Canada, espousing their one sided narratives demonizing Israel as an apartheid state and promoting the BDS (Boycotts Divestment and Sanctions) against Israel. I have attended  these conferences where those opposing these ideas are booed and hissed. Even when these resolutions fail to pass, as they usually do, the battle itself counts as a success for Israel’s enemies, as the Jewish state assumes a cumulatively negative image in the public mind. The influence-makers of tomorrow on campuses today are likely to graduate with the idea that Israel is a rogue, or at least quasi-rogue, nation. Students must actively seek out objective information if they wish to approach Israel with an open mind.

Recently Oxfam was “appalled” that Scarlett Johannsen who has been one of their ambassadors, became a spokesman  for Soda Stream, a successful Israeli enterprise on the West Bank that actually provides jobs to Palestinians. She chose to resign rather than withdraw from her support of Israel and Soda Stream. You can see here  to what degree Oxfam assumes that their attitudes toward Israel is the only true one  and the one which has beome “politically correct”.

We can also see the extent to which anti-Israel feeling has become politically correct in the responses to Harper’s visit to Israel in Canada in the left wing Canadian media. Many were “shocked and disappointed” by Harper’s support of Israel asking whether his stance was “balanced”. Steven Harper  is the only world leader who has grasped the insidious nature of the Arab hatred of Jews, and how that hatred and demonization is what is actually maintaining a state of war between Israel and the Arab population: a hostility that Israel has been contending with since its inception during the war of 1948 and 1967 and which is a threat which continues to manifest in Iran’s nuclear ambitions expressly “to wipe Israel off the map”. In addition, Hamas and Hezbollah, fuelled by Islamic fundamentalists,  refuse to recognize any Jewish connection to the Holy land, threaten Israel’s very existence, and continue to be supported by the left wing human rights mafia.

Fortunately the academic left leaning world is an ivory tower and Israel enjoys amazing support across the board from average Americans and Canadians like yourself who understand her plight and are not taken in by this perfidious and increasingly “politically correct” propaganda machine.

Israel, Jewish organizations, Jews and non-Jews, have taken up the challenge to expose and educate regarding this new antisemitism. I refer you to several organizations that you can access over the internet that were created to expose the bias of the UN, left wing academia, and the antisemitism that has infected the dialogue regarding Israel in the Middle East.

CIJR Canadian Institute for Jewish Studies
ISGAP Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy
SPME Scholars for Peace in the Middle East
MEMRI Middle East Media Research Institute

As well as individual journalists, scholars, and observors, who have spoken out, like the Winnipeg  born scholar Catherine Chatterley, the historian Andrew Roberts, The Washington Post journalist, Bret StephensRobert Wistrich, Jonathon Goldhagen, David Nirenberg, and  even some of my own blogs which have focused on exposing these trends.

Footnote:  3/8/2014
Today I discovered on the internet a study by University of Warsaw regarding the current state of antisemitism in Ploand: Anti-semitism, The Indelible Stain. It bears out the notion I discovered in two recent books about antisemitism that antisemitism has very little to do with Jews and that it can exist even more virulently in places where there are no Jews: Poland since World War ll is virtually Judenrein or Jew-free.

However the best analysis of antisemitism that I have seen is by Ruth Wisse

Purim Today – 2012

Esther ScrollToday I attended the CIJR Colloquium on the Iranian question. Three professors, Prof. Frederick Krantz, Chair (Concordia University), Prof. Harold Waller (McGill University),
and Prof. Norrin Ripsman (Concordia University) all spoke on the topic of Syria, Egypt and the “Arab Spring”: Israel’s Security Situation, following an introduction by  Rabbi Yonah Rosner.

The Rabbi spoke using the drama of the Purim story as a backdrop. (This week will host the Jewish celebration of Purim, March 7th & 8th). Yesterday, in synagogues, in Israel and all over the world, Jews participated in Shabbat Zachor, the Sabbath before Purim which each year reminds us of the injunction “to remember and not to forget” those who have attacked our innocents in the past, (Deuteronomy 25:17-19) or the dangers that these kinds of enemies pose at any time. In my own synagogue Rabbi Aigin also spoke about these issues.

Iran has made open and clear threats to annihilate the Jewish people, to wipe Israel off the map. Both Rabbis reminded us of Queen Esther’s injunction, and the importance of Jewish unity in the face of these kinds of threats. Our history reminds us that threats are serious. And as Prof. Krantz (a historian), pointed out, the only difference between pre Holocaust times and post Holocuast times is that the Jewish people now have a state, the independent State of Israel, and a well trained army and armaments to address these kinds of threats.

However, we are also reminded that the Book of Esther, never mentions G-d, but only the acts and foibles of men and women, some ordinary and some in authority, Kings and Ministers. Tomorrow President Obama addresses AIPAC, (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) the annual gathering of heads of American Jewish institutions and ordinary folk. We will all have to judge, is Obama Ahashverosh – the weak and easily influenced vacillating King described in the Purim Story who first has his Queen Vashti killed for insubordination, i.e. refusing to appear before his party in the nude, and then gives Haman permission to murder all Jews in his Kingdom on a certain day in spring, the day we celebrate as Purim, in exchange for ten thousand ducats. – not a very wise or compassionate King, although in the end he sees the error of his ways. But rulers are not always wise or compassionate. This we see clearly in our our own time. Most of them seem to be focused clearly on acquiring wealth and retaining power at any cost.

Prof Krantz reminded us of the heavy responsibility that Prime Minister Netanyahu now carries on his shoulders, the responsibility of guarding over six million Jews in Israel and the fate of their brethren in the Diaspora as well. For our fates have and always will be linked. Esther in the Purim story reminds us that if Jews have any hope for redemption they must be united, especially in times of crisis.



The Purim scroll is called the Megillah, and it is a tradition to have fun and to put on satirical plays on Purim, they are called Purimshpiels in Yiddish. Another Yiddish expression is “man tracht und G-t lacht.”  Man works and G-d laughs or the English idiomatic equivalent is “Man proposes G-d disposes”.

This article: Remember: The Answer to Terrorism has a deep message regarding how to respond in the face of threats.

Happy Purim to all.

CUTV and its slanted reporting and libelous behavior towards myself

I recently encountered two volunteers from CUTV at the Segal Center, where they were reviewing a play and inviting comments. They invited me to be interviewed and when I learned they were from CUTV, I shared with them my grievance with the station. The fact that since Laith Marouf has become station manager of CUTV, He personally called me a “racist” and barred me from participating as a volunteer, an action I consider libelous. (I had been a full fledged volunteer in good standing for two prior years)  and the reporting at CUTV has become slanted to support the Palestinian cause using student funds to advance these aims.

CUTV was started by Ralph Lee, a Concordia student, to further worthy causes in the community and it has done so over the years. However, recently I received this post from CUTV.

Date:     January 26, 2012 12:17:04 PM EST

ANNUAL NAKBAH DEMONSTRATION HAS LARGE SUPPORT FROM CIVIL SOCIETY:

Each year in May, Palestinian refugees mark the exodus from their homeland by a demonstration called Nakbah. CUTV covered the 63rd Nakbah demonstration in Montreal as one thousand strong gathered to educate the public on their plight. In 1948, 7 million Palestinians were expelled from their homes and their villages destroyed. 63 years later, Israel continues to occupy and colonize Palestinian land through the construction of Jewish only settlements which the protesters say is in direct violation of international human rights. Their slogan is a quote by Nelson Mandela stating that Palestinians do not want a state, they want “freedom, liberation and equality.”

I wonder if you can find the propaganda and lies hidden in this seemingly journalistic statement. For one, seven million is a gross exaggeration of the number of refugees who fled Israel. PS: They were not expelled and we have proof of this.

This is what has been termed “stealth jihad” and I wonder if Concordia students are aware that their student dollars are going to support this biased reporting. Many well meaning volunteers spend countless dedicated hours contributing to CUTV. They need to understand the direction that CUTV is taking and that certain members of CUTV, Laith Marouf and Laura Kneale, are pulling it towards. I know that you, dear students, would also want to address the issue of the student airwaves being hijacked.

On the subject of Israel/apartheid and the Boycott Divestment Sanction movement which has now been recognized as a slanderous and anti-semitic program against Israel, I invite you to listen to Prof. Gerstenfeld who spoke on this topic at Concordia University.

I invite your response and ideas for how to address this issue on our campus. Yes, I too am a Concordia student.

SIAP – Student Israel Advocacy Program, Montreal

Last week I attended a SIAP class on anti-semitism and the media, given by prof. Fred Krantz. SIAP (Student Israel Advocacy Program), is a seminar for university students offered by the Canadian Institute for Jewish Research in Montreal (CIJR).

Prof. Krantz started off by giving a definition of anti-semitism. I share with you here two definitions of antisemitism.

“Bernard Lewis defines anti-semitism as a special case of prejudice, hatred, or persecution directed against people who are in some way different from the rest. According to Lewis, antisemitism is marked by two distinct features: Jews are judged according to a standard different from that applied to others, and they are accused of “cosmic evil.”

In 2005, the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (now Fundamental Rights Agency), then an agency of the European Union, developed a more detailed working definition, which states:

“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.” It adds “such manifestations could also target the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity.” It provides contemporary examples of antisemitism, which include: promoting the harming of Jews in the name of an ideology or religion; promoting negative stereotypes of Jews; holding Jews collectively responsible for the actions of an individual Jewish person or group; denying the Holocaust or accusing Jews or Israel of exaggerating it; and accusing Jews of dual loyalty or a greater allegiance to Israel than their own country. It also lists ways in which attacking Israel could be antisemitic, e.g. by claiming that the existence of a state of Israel is a racist endeavor, or applying double standards by requiring of Israel a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation, or holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the State of Israel.”

And then I discovered this short trailer for the movie Judeophobia.I thought this was an especially cogent summation about the current state of affairs regarding antisemitism from some of the best minds around.

The second part of Prof. Krantz’ talk was to point out how anti-Israel bias manifests itself in the media via the choice of articles and words in certain institutional papers, including The New York Times, The Tribune and others. He pointed out that It is important to remember that the editors choose what will go into the paper and how it is reported. This is amply apparent if you follow an NGO like Honest Reporting as I do. This year they even had a contest for who wrote the most dishonest articles, and the Guardian won.

And here is yesterday’s post from Honest Reporting called The Media Cheat Sheet.

If you want to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth, I invite you to meet with an Italian journalist who will be speaking of his own experience in this area, this Monday February 6th, at Concordia and McGill.

The talk, titled “Friends of Israel, on a campus near you” looks at photojournalism and the role of the media in conflicts using Israel as a case study. The talk will feature Ruben Salvadori, an Italian photographer, who has worked extensively in Israel.

Salvadori will be @ CONCORDIA, EV Building Rm. 6.735 at NOON, and @ MCGILL Burnside 708 at 5:30pm on Monday February 6th.

The SIAP program is airing a film about antisemitism, called Obsession this Sunday between 2:00- 4:00pm, at Concordia University, (1515 St. Catherine St. W, corner Guy)
The film will be shown in EV building Room 6.735. (Fine Arts). Anyone interested is invited to attend.

(The plan is to meet in the lobby of the EV 10 minutes before 2pm & to go up as a group)

Chair: Prof. David Pariser, Concordia University
Moderator: Prof. Jean-Charles Chebat (HEC)

Next week, Wednesday February 8th, there will be another installment in the SIAP year long program which you are invited to attend. This class titled “From Balfour Declaration to Six Day War” (1917 -1967) will be given at the CIJR Board room @ 5:30 PM with Prof. Harold Waller of McGill University.
Anyone interested in enrolling is invited to contact CIJR to registerl.

Defamation: The Movie

A year ago I watched the 2009 documentary film by award-winning filmmaker Yoav Shamir, an Israeli Jew. The film examines antisemitism, and in particular the way perceptions of antisemitism affect Israeli and U.S. politics. The film won Best Documentary Feature Film at the 2009 Asia Pacific Screen Awards. Sadly, it is by an Israeli and makes light of anti-semitism as a phenomenon. This morning I noticed the following comment on one of my Youtube posts, in response to the recent CIJR Conference on Delegitimating Israel:
Jews have been kicked out of EVERYWHERE THEY GO – BECAUSE of WHAT Jews DO. Jews create the hostility and fury in others. Jews have EVIL, vicious beliefs. Judaism is SICK and HATEFUL, and grotesquely racist. It’s not Gentiles that are the problem – it’s JEWS.
ThusSpakeDenise
http://youtu.be/rPwnAmcbsRA
How do you respond to someone who call you a wifebeater? The filmmaker, Yoav Shamir, reports that he has never experienced anti-semitism himself and that the reports of it are vastly exaggerated. How lucky he is, having grown up in the protected cocoon of Israel, created in response to vicious genocidal anti-semitism which succeeded in murdering at least six million innocent Jews just because they were Jewish by birth during World War II.
Sadly, anti-semitism after years of somnolence is beginning to be emboldened to publicly express itself more and more.This morning I read this on the internet about Students at Oxford involved in an anti-semitic incident. Serious anti-semitic incidents have been reported at York University in Ontario, Columbia University, Berkley, USC Santa Cruz, and I have personally experienced such an incident here in Montreal at Concordia’s CUTV.
Fortunately, Canada has been one of the few countries who has spoken out forcefully on this issue and for this we must all, Jews and non-Jews be grateful.
“The government of Canada took a historic step yesterday by signing the Ottawa Protocol to Combat Anti-Semitism. (…)The protocol is a declaration that hatred of this nature will not be tolerated in this country. It sets out an action plan for supporting initiatives that combat anti-Semitism and provides a framework for other nations to follow….It also sets out a vibrant definition of anti-Semitism which, for the first time in history, links anti-Semitism to the denial of the right Jewish people have to their ancestral home land — the State of Israel. (…)The Inquiry Panel’s conclusion, unfortunately, is that the scourge of anti-Semitism is a growing threat in Canada, especially on the campuses of our universities… Every person of conscience should take note of the Ottawa Protocols and never forget the lessons of the Holocaust when the world was silent.
I invite your comments below.

Highlights of the CIJR conference Combatting the Delegitimation of Israel


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.

Delegitimation Conference in Montreal, CIJR Nov. 6, 2011

When you say “delegitimation” or “delegitimization” most people know that it refers to the attempt to delegitimize the current State of Israel. The hallmark of this propaganda campaign against the existence of the State of Israel has been damaging in several ways:

1. The inverted use of traditional human rights, accusing Israel and Israel alone of human rights violations, for example, has been used to brand Israel as an “apartheid” colonial entity.

2. Free speech and democratic-liberal language and values – such as the free speech canons of universities have been used to spread false historical assessments of the Middle East, Israel, and the Palestinian refugees, in particular.

3. The “deligitimization” campaign seeks to misrepresent Holocaust memory and historical truth generally by claiming that the only reason Israel is in existence is because of the Holocaust and German destruction of six million Jews, who displaced native Arab inhabitants. This reframing denies the history of Palestine and Israel, it’s Jewish history and Jewish ties to the land that go back thousands of years.

On November 6th. CIJR Canadian Institute of Jewish Research – Concordia – is hosting a conference that will bring international activists and scholars to Montreal. The morning will be devoted to defining and analyzing the “delegitimization strategy” and scholarship. The afternoon will be devoted to combatting it.

The morning participants will be Efraim Karsh,the distinguished historian, Sally Zerker, of York U., Asaf Ramirowsky, of the Middle East Forum, Barbara Kay, the Canadian journalist, and Catherine Chatterly, U. of Manitoba.

Daniel Pipes (Hoover Institution/MEF) will be giving the keynote address over lunch which is included in the admission.

I am especially excited about participating with the afternoon panelists who have been activists in the cause, Richard Landes, Mordechai Nisan, and Charles Small.

Richard Landes coined the term “Pallywood” which visually exposes the creation of Palestinian victim films on the West Bank. This was exposed on Sixty Minutes.
Mordechai Nisan, a former Montrealer, has proposed a novel solution to the Palestine refugee problem in his new book, Only Israel West of the River, and Charles Small, also a former Montrealer, has been in the forefront of exposing Islamist anti-semitism.

The conference is free to students and $36 to the public.

If you have any interest in the history, the people, or the land of Israel, you will want to attend this conference and I urge you to do so.
