Grandma fined $64 for ‘too long’ dog lead

The UK is toast.

Emilia Bona reports for the Liverpool Echo, Jan. 6, 2019, that an 80-year-old grandmother was fined for walking her dog near her house in Bootle, a town in Sefton Council, Merseyside, England, because her dog lead was “too long”.

Maureen Sanders, 80, was walking her rescue dog Soren around Bootle Cemetery on the morning of January 4, 2019, when she was stopped by two officers from enforcement firm NSL.The two women told Maureen her dog lead was “too long” and needed to be less than two meters (6.56 ft.) if she wanted to use it in the area.

Note: NSL is a private company that “operate in local and central government, health, airports and the private sector offering business process management, enforcement, patient care, passenger transport, street and estate management and technical design consultancy.”

Sanders said that instead of issuing her a warning or explaining the rules to her, the officers slapped her with a £50 ($63.80) fine for breaking the by-law and, if she doesn’t pay the fine in a fortnight, you would be fined £2,500 ($3,190) and would have a criminal record.

Sanders said: “I cried all night because I was so, so upset. I don’t have a computer or anything – I wouldn’t know the by-laws or anything. I’ve always been very respectful in the cemetery. I always have the dog on a lead and a lot of people don’t do that! Soren is from Romania and I’ve had him about three years. He’s a friendly dog but he can get quite frightened because he had a bad time in Romania. I had no idea it was a rule. My daughters rang the One Stop Shop when I had to pay the fine and the staff in there said they had never heard of it.”

Indeed, the signs on the cemetery gates make no mention of the maximum length of dog leads or of fines.

Sanders’ daughter Maggie Eaton said she found her mum in “floods of tears” after being handed the fine. She said her mum is waiting for a hip replacement and needs to use a longer lead to walk Soren because she has difficulty walking. Eaton also said her mum is a responsible dog owner who “always carries poo bags and cleans up after her dog without fail. Mum does not have that sort of money to pay for walking her dog under control on a lead as she has done every day for years.”

Eaton and her sister have offered to help their mother pay the £50 fine so the money doesn’t come out of her pension. But Sanders says she is refusing to pay the fine on principle.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel: nation-states must give up their sovereignty

Remember this?

So it should come as no surprise than German Chancellor Angela Merkel is now outright telling European states — and all the countries in the world — that they “must today be ready to give up [their] sovereignty” as independent nation-states.

Tom Nellist reports for the UK Express that on November 23, 2018 in a speech at an event organized by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin, titled “Parliamentarianism Between Globalisation and National Sovereignty,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel defended the United Nations migration pact signed in July by all UN member countries except the United States. Merkel said, “In this day nation states must today – should today, I say – be ready to give up sovereignty. But of course in an orderly procedure.”

In a thinly veiled attack on President Trump and populist parties in Europe, .Merkel trashed nationalism and countries that are nationalist as selfish. Instead, nation-states should cede their power to a superstate, which is a better form of nationalism. She said: “Either you are one of those who believe they can solve everything on their own and only have to think about themselves. That is nationalism in its purest form. This is not patriotism. Because patriotism is if you include others in the German interest and accept win-win situations.”

Last month, Merkel announced she was stepping down as leader of her party but not as Chancellor of Germany.

Merkel’s 13-year premiership has been noted for her open-door policy toward Muslim “migrants” and “refugees,” which has led to much social chaos and unrest, as well as demographic changes so drastic that Germany will be a white-minority country in one generation.

Update (Jan. 4, 2019)

Retribution? Bloomberg Quint reports that “Hackers have released private data linked to Chancellor Angela Merkel and hundreds of other German politicians in the biggest data dump of its kind in the country. The information includes email addresses, mobile phone numbers and personal chat transcripts…. The data were leaked over the past weeks via a Twitter account called ‘G0d’ that identifies itself as based in Hamburg….”

UK company, Edible Anus, sells chocolate molds of buttholes

Once a culture or country degenerates, there is no end to its depravity.

There’s a company in Watford, England, called Edible Anus, which sells chocolate molds of buttholes.

Here it is in white chocolate:

From the company’s “About Us” page:

The Edible Anus first saw the light of day in 2006 when the London artist, Magnus Irvin, made a range of them in multi-coloured chocolate to present in an exhibition. It was at the ensuing show that he met and formed a partnership with Mr Ritzema, a tall man of Dutch desent. Since then the two of them have worked together to make the range of products available today.

Initially Mr Irvin tried to cast his own anus with messy and disastrous results. Whilst explaining his failure to a chance acquaintance at a bus stop he was gratified to find that his fellow bus passenger was willing to allow him to cast her anus. The job was done in just over half an hour later that afternoon and all subsequent anuses have been based on this casting. It is a matter of interest that the person who kindly donated her service has no idea that her anus has now gone global.

The chocolate, glass and metal anuses have since appeared in other exhibitions and some of the more unusual high street retailers, whilst the chocolate anus has been bought by decerning customers the world over. Rings of succulent chocolate lovingly cast and crafted from the delectable posterior of our stunning butt model. This luxury chocolate is unique and manufactured entirely in the UK. Watch Grandma’s face light up as she unwraps a homely selection of chocolate cracks. The perfect gift for all the family.

A 5-pack “bundle” of chocolate buttholes is on sale for £20 ($25.35), marked down from £25 ($31.69). Alas, it is out of stock.

What is not out-of-stock is the Solid Bronze Limited Edition Anus, for £450 ($570.43):

Below is a disgusting but unintentionally hilarious video of “alternative model” Rayna Terror getting a bronze mold made of her butthole.

Edible Anus’ co-owner Magnus Irvin (Facebook; website) is obsessed with feces. In addition to making edible and nonedible buttholes, he also makes poo cards, like this one.

Spontaneous Yellow Vests movement’s domain name was registered a year before in May 2017

The Yellow Vests movement is a mass movement that began online in France in May 2018 as a protest against a gas tax hike (of about 25 cents a gallon). The movement quickly metamorphosed beyond the internet when protesters, wearing yellow vests as a symbol, took to the streets rioting against high taxes, eroding living standards, and what many see as the government’s indifference to the concerns of France’s regions and ordinary people.

Note: Since 2008, all motorists in France are required by law to have high-visibility yellow vests in their vehicles when driving, as a safety measure should the driver be required to exit the vehicle on the roadside.

The movement has spread beyond France to Belgium and the United Kingdom.

“Yellow vests” is gilets jaunes in French. We are told that the Yellow Vests or Gilets Jaunes movement is a spontaneous popular uprising, so it is most curious that a Frenchman who calls himself Jean L. discovered that the internet domain name www.giletsjaunes.com had been registered on May 15, 2017 — a full year before the Gilets Jaunes movement actually began.

See Jean L, “Yellow Vests – Color Revolution Gone Awry?,” henrymakow.com, Dec. 21, 2018.

Jean L. also points out the pop-culture foreshadowing, aka predictive programming, of the Yellow Vests movement in The Economist‘s 2017 cover, specifically the modified “Hermit” Tarot card depicting hordes of yellow-garbed people protesting against globalization, holding flags against the TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership), the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) and the EU (European Union).

The Rothschilds are shareholders (21%) of The Economist. (Wikipedia)

Meanwhile, elements in the French military are in open rebellion against President Emmanuel Macron.

As reported by Voice of Europe on Dec. 14, eleven generals, an admiral, a colonel and a former Minister of Defense signed a letter accusing Macron of treason for signing the UN Global Migration Pact that strips France of even more sovereignty, thereby providing anoother reason for “an already battered people” to “revolt”. The letter says mass immigration is erasing France’s “civilizational landmarks” and that “The French state is late in coming to realize the impossibility of integrating too many people, in addition to totally different cultures, who have regrouped in the last forty years in areas that no longer submit to the laws of the Republic.”

The pact, which was signed by 164 countries, has been protested by Yellow Vest demonstrations in five countries.

Financial Times names George Soros ‘Person of the Year’ for promoting globalism, elitism and open borders

Founded in 1888, Financial Times (FT) is an international daily newspaper, headquartered in London, with a special emphasis on business and economic news. In 2015, Acquired in 2015 by Nikkei Inc. for £844m ($1.32 billion), FT is considered the most important business read, reaching 36% of the business-financial population, 11% more than its main rival, The Wall Street Journal (WSJ).

Financial Times has just named George Soros “Person of the Year” — the ever-scheming financier who made his billionaire fortune in the wholly unproductive currency-speculation and hedge funds, and who, through his foundations, foments and funds every Leftist, western civilization-destroying machination and movement, from racial protests and the “migrant caravan” invasion of America, to Europe’s open-border policy for Muslim “migrants” and “refugees”. See:

In the words of the Financial Times, Soros is Person of the Year because he fights the “extreme right” “forces of nationalism and populism,” which is FT‘s way of commending him for championing the left, globalism and elitism.

FT also stoops low by flinging the all-purpose “anti-Semitic” label at critics of Soros, which effectively shields him from every and all criticism.

Below are excerpts from Roula Khalaf’s nauseatingly fawning article, “FT Person of the Year: George Soros,” Financial Times, Dec. 19, 2018:

For a man facing daily attacks for his activism and liberal vision of the world, George Soros was in a curiously buoyant mood on a sunswept afternoon in Marrakesh. He had just visited South Africa, home to his first philanthropic foray in the late 1970s, when he funded black students under apartheid. This time he learnt that Soros-backed investigative media and civil society groups had helped thwart an allegedly corrupt nuclear power plant contract with Russia.

“It was a tremendous boost to reinforce my belief that we are doing something right,” says Mr Soros. “We haven’t stopped having a beneficial influence.”

Influence has come at a painfully high cost for the 88-year-old father of the hedge fund industry and one of the world’s most prominent philanthropists. From his native Hungary to his adopted America, the forces of nationalism and populism are battering the liberal democratic order he has tirelessly supported. The man once described as the only individual with a foreign policy must contend with the rise of strongmen across the globe — and a vicious backlash designed to delegitimise him.

The Financial Times’s choice of Person of the Year is usually a reflection of their achievements. In the case of Mr Soros this year, his selection is also about the values he represents.

He is the standard bearer of liberal democracy and open society. These are the ideas which triumphed in the cold war. Today, they are under siege from all sides, from Vladimir Putin’s Russia to Donald Trump’s America.

For more than three decades, Mr Soros has used philanthropy to battle against authoritarianism, racism and intolerance. Through his long commitment to openness, media freedom and human rights, he has attracted the wrath of authoritarian regimes and, increasingly, the national populists who continue to gain ground, particularly in Europe….

There are so many anti-Semitic conspiracy theories targeting Mr Soros that it is difficult to keep count. Hardly a day goes by without a statement, a tweet or an image depicting him as a master manipulator of global politics.

The venom, long concealed among extreme right networks, has leaked into the mainstream: Mr Trump, who resents Mr Soros’ support for the Democrats, has peddled allegations that he funded the caravan of central American migrants, claims that have appeared to have partly inspired the October attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Earlier that month, Mr Soros was the first in a series of Trump critics targeted with an explosive device sent to his suburban New York home. “I have been painted as the devil. The fact that extremists are motivated by false conspiracy theories about me to kill hurts me tremendously,” says Mr Soros. […]

In his twilight years, Mr Soros is looking beyond his formidable legacy. Having originally planned that his foundation would last his lifetime, he completed the transfer last year of $18bn from his family office to the Open Society Foundations. That reduced his fortune to $8bn, according to Forbes magazine, but ensured that his activism would take on a life of its own. And he has found a successor in philanthropy: his son, Alexander. “We fight for principles, we fight irrespective of the results, win or lose,” he says. And, almost as an afterthought, he says: “I don’t like to lose so much.”

About Soros’ son and heir, Alexander, see “George Soros’ son, Alex, is a ‘spirit cooker’?“.

By the way, the “explosive device” sent to Soros’ suburban New York home was a false flag. See “How we know package bombs sent to Democrats are false flags” and “Cesar Sayoc, package bomber: The pieces that don’t fit”.

What happened to Cesar Sayoc, about whom we’ve heard nothing since his supposed arrest?

Failure of Europe’s Open Door Policy: Denmark consigns ‘unwanted’ migrants to small island

Actions speak louder than words.

The Danish government will not admit it, but by its decision to send (an initial) 100 “unwanted” migrants to a small island, Copenhagen effectively admits that its open door policy to mainly Muslim “migrants” and “refugees” is a failure.

According to a Danish-language report (Google Translate here) on the Danish government’s Immigration and Integration Ministry website uim.dk, which was last updated on December 4, 2018, the Danish government and the Danish People’s Party have signed an agreement on the Finance Act for 2019 with “a number of initiatives” concerning refugees and migrants.

While Denmark “helps and protects persons fleeing from war and unrest,” too many refugees who have come to Denmark in the last 20 years are “still in Denmark”. A “new approach” is needed, which “sends a clear signal that the refugee stay in Denmark is temporary and that Denmark has both the will and the ability to act quickly and efficiently when the basis for the individual’s residence permit is no longer present.”

The new agreement signed by the government is aimed at sending refugees “home as soon as possible” and to”better control who is in Denmark,” especially “foreigners who are unwanted in Denmark,” who will be “accomodated” on Lindholm, a small island southwest of the capital Copenhagen.

“A new exit center” will be established on the island to accomodate “unwanted foreigners,” including criminals and rejected political-asylum seekers “who are convicted of violation of the Penal Code, the Arms Act, the Knivloven Act or the Act on Euphoric Drugs”.

Immigration and Integration Minister Inger Støjberg says:

“We have concluded an agreement that clearly indicates that refugees’ stay in Denmark is temporary. Refugees must meet from day one the expectation that they will return home as soon as they can to help build their country. It makes sense for both them and us…. With the agreement we also introduce a family reunification ceiling. It is crucial that Denmark does not return to a situation like in Autumn 2015, and a family reunification ceiling is a clear signal that there is a limit to how many refugee family reunions Denmark can handle. I am pleased that we have also agreed to establish an exit center on the island of Lindholm for the criminals who currently live at the Outreach Center Kærshovedgård. They are unwanted here in this country, and the new exit center on Lindholm is a signal that they have no future in Denmark. ”

The agreement also specifies the following:

  • The Immigration Act must be amended so that residence permits issued to refugees and refugee family reunification are withdrawn when the basis for the residence permit is no longer present and as soon as Denmark’s international obligations allow it. Residence permits for refugees will not be issued with the possibility of permanent residence.
  • Foreigners are to be self-sufficient as soon as possible; refugees’ residence in Denmark is strictly temporary.
  • New refugees must work as quickly as possible, sustaining themselves until they can be repatriated to their native countries.
  • The “transitional” allowance for single parents is reduced by DKK 2,000 per person per month, for cohabiting and married parents by DKK 1,000 per person per month — equivalent to DKK 2,000 per household. The state refund of 50% of municipal expenses for supplementary and individual benefits under the Integration Act will be abolished.
  • The repatriation scheme is strengthened, among other things by extending the target group for repatriation to refugees from areas where temporary protection status is granted and to refugees who have dual citizenship, including Danish, if they opt out of Danish citizenship.
  • To enforce the new rules on refugees’ temporary residence in Denmark, fingerprints and face recognition experts will be trained.
  • A family reunification ceiling will be introduced where the number of asylum seekers increases sharply.
  • Convicted aliens will be sentenced and imprisoned for longer terms.
  • Sharper penalties for foreigners who violate their residence, notification and reporting.
  • As soon as possible and by the end of 2019, an agreement must be reached with a partner country to establish Danish prisons abroad, so that criminals sentenced to expulsion will serve their sentences abroad rather than be a cost for Danish prisons and Danish society.
  • An amendment to the Danish Constitution and Denmark’s international obligations will seek to prevent foreign monetary donations to communities, associations and organizations whose purpose is to counteract and undermine Denmark’s democracy and fundamental freedoms.

Read the agreement for the Finance Act for 2019 (the alien section appears on pages 25-40)

EU armored vehicles deployed against unarmed Paris protesters

Paris is burning.

David Vives reports for The Epoch Times that anti-government protests in France are growing ever larger as an estimated 125,000 yellow-vested demonstrators in Paris took to the streets yesterday, despite Prime Minister Edouard Philippe’s concession last Wednesday to scrap the tax hike.

The 4-week long protests, dubbed the Yellow Vest movement because of the yellow vests worn by the protesters as a symbol, began online in May 2018 as a protest against a gas tax hike (of about 25 cents a gallon) and metamorphosed into street riots against high taxes, eroding living standards, and what many see as the government’s indifference to the concerns of France’s regions and ordinary people. The movement has spread beyond France to Belgium.

Note: Since 2008, all motorists in France are required by law to have high-visibility yellow vests in their vehicles when driving, as a safety measure should the driver be required to exit the vehicle on the roadside.

In Paris, a ring of steel of trucks and reinforced metal barriers surrounded President Emmanuel Macron’s Elysee Palace, although Macron himself has gone AWOL, unseen in public all last week.

See DCG’s “Shocker, not: Macron AWOL as violence, protests continue in Paris

More than 1,200 people were arrested before the Saturday protest began in an effort to mitigate violence as much as possible. The December 1 riots had damaged the Arc de Triomphe and injured 130 people. Police also confiscated from protesters anything that could be used as protection such as helmets, protective glasses, and cartridges of saline solution for the eyes.

Saturday’s Yellow Vest crowd was overwhelmingly male, a mix of those with financial grievances and apparently experienced vandals, who tore steadily through some of Paris’ wealthiest neighborhoods, smashing and burning.

Demonstrations have been taking place elsewhere in France as well. Police and protesters clashed in the southern cities of Marseille and Toulouse. About 89,000 security forces are deployed across the nation, including military, local police, and special police, who are authorized to engage in physical contact if necessary, as well as use batons and flash-balls, a non-lethal hand-held weapon.

What the French government doesn’t say is that they’ve called in the European Union (EU) military, as indicated by armored vehicles with the EU’s blue-and-gold-stars flag.

Below is a cell-phone video, showing two EU armored vehicles being deployed against the protesters in Paris.

Among Saturday’s protesters was retired General Christian Piquemal in a yellow vest. He said, “France has been a beacon for the world, it was a country with eternal vows, and today it’s totally decaying. We need to find ourselves again as people who share common values.”

Political columnist Eric Verhaeghe says that “The base of the yellow vest movement is ordinary people … who are desperate,” and that the heart of the movement is libertarian, wanting less government and more freedom, with aims similar to the original Boston Tea Party and the modern Tea Party movement in America.

Meanwhile, the French government has taken a leaf from the American Left’s playbook by blaming the Yellow Vest protests on Russia.

Bloomberg reports, Dec. 9, 2018, that France opened a probe into possible Russian interference behind the country’s Yellow Vest protests, after reports that social-media accounts linked to Moscow have increasingly targeted the movement, and that Russian-linked sites, e.g., Sputnik and RT, have reported a mutiny among police, and of officers’ support for the protests.

According to the Alliance for Securing Democracy — a unit of the German Marshall Fund of the U.S. which monitors pro-Kremlin activity — about 600 Twitter accounts “known to promote Kremlin views” have begun focusing on France, boosting their use of the hashtag #giletsjaunes, the French name for the Yellow Vest movement. French security services are looking at the situation, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said Sunday in a radio interview.

French Roast

You Will Reap What You Sow

Like French Roast coffee, I will make this post short and bitter.

France has a long history of evil, persecuting christians, and supporting and harboring monsters. A city that gave shelter to the exiled Ayatollah Khomeini, Karl Marx, and a place for the leader of the PLO to hide his stolen billions, can expect a dark harvest.

I know there is much to love about the French, but there is also a parallel line of the country’s history that will demand justice. The infamous globalists are very comfortable in Paris. So also the terrorist organization known as Antifa.

America, take notice!  

You too will answer to the seeds you have sown.

European Jewish Congress: Bible should contain warnings about antisemitic passages; governments must fund fight against antisemitism

Founded in 1986, the European Jewish Congress (EJC) is an umbrella organization of 42 national Jewish communities in Europe, representing more than 2.5 million European Jews. Affiliated to the World Jewish Congress, the EJC is one of the most influential international public associations. It works with national governments, European Union institutions and the Council of Europe. Based in Paris, the EJC has offices in Brussels, Strasbourg, Berlin and Budapest.

The Jerusalem Post reports that on November 21, 2018, the EJC convened a high level conference in Vienna, Austria, on “Europe beyond antisemitism and anti-Zionism – securing Jewish life in Europe”.

The conference was arranged by the Federal Chancellery of Austria led by Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz who, in his opening address, said “Antisemitism and anti-Zionism are getting blurred, but they are two sides of the same coin.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a recorded video speech at the conference, in which he said that antisemitism was resurgent again “throughout the world,” and that a new antisemitism has arisen which attempts “to demonize the Jewish state and prevent the Jewish people the right to self-determination in the homeland of our forefathers, the Land of Israel. Netanyahu said that “The Holocaust did not begin in the gas chambers of Auschwitz. The Holocaust began with the spread of hate speech, the burning of books and the smashing of shop windows.”

EJC president Dr. Moshe Kantor said at the conference:

“Today, on European streets, people are being killed again simply for being Jewish. Jewish communities in Europe are increasingly concerned about their security and pessimistic about their future. Europe doesn’t have a monopoly on antisemitism anymore. No Jewish community anywhere in the world, however strong and well organized, is now immune from Jew hatred. Fighting antisemitism deserves much more than simple statements of good will – we need concrete policies and reinforced legislation.”

To that end, the conference produced a Catalogue of Policies to Combat Antisemitism — detailed proposals and recommendations for combating antisemitism in Europe, drawn up by the EJC with the assistance of academics from universities in Vienna, Tel Aviv and New York. (Daily Mail names Israeli historian Dina Porat and New York University professor Lawrence H. Schiffman as among the academics.)

Chancellor Kurz said he intends to bring the document before the European Council, the body comprising the 28 EU member heads of state that determines policy direction, at its next summit in December. Raising the issue at the European Council would be prelude to the adoption of the recommendations by the EU and Europe’s national governments.

On its website, the European Jewish Congress identifies the following recommendations of the Catalogue of Policies to Combat Antisemitism:

  1. Adoption and implementation of the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism by all countries, institutions and businesses;
  2. Governments and intergovernmental organizations should condemn the blatant state-sanctioned antisemitism that exist in a number of countries, such as Iran;
  3. All countries should appoint an envoy for combatting antisemitism;
  4. Every country should commit to a percentage of its GDP, annually, to fund the fight against antisemitism;
  5. Creating new legal frameworks to combat antisemitism effectively and strengthening existing ones;
  6. People who express or hold antisemitic views should not be allowed to be members of political parties or occupy a position of power;
  7. Companies should be advised not to do business with countries or organizations that support antisemitism in any way;
  8. Governments should commit financial and operational resources to ensure the security of Jewish communities;
  9. Internet companies should be liable for antisemitic content on their platforms.

Curiously, left out of the above recommendations is the call for new editions of the Bible and Koran to carry warning messages about anti-Semitic passages.

James Wood reports for Daily Mail, Nov. 23, 2018, that the recommendation is in the EJC’s conference document, An End to Antisemitism! A Catalogue of Policies to Combat Antisemitism, in a chapter entitled “Recommendations regarding Religious Groups and Institutions”. The document reads:

Translations of the New Testament, the Qur’an and other Christian or Muslim literatures need marginal glosses, and introductions that emphasize continuity with Jewish heritage of both Christianity and Islam and warn readers about antisemitic passages in them. While some efforts have been made in this direction in the case of Christianity, these efforts need to be extended and made consistent in both religions.

The Catalogue of Policies to Combat Antisemitism also calls for:

  • The identification and rejection of all antisemitic texts and passages in the heritage of Christianity and Islam.
  • Religious leaders and thinkers to public denounce as “unholy writ”  all canonical or quasi-canonical writings of religious anti-Semites.

The Catalogue‘s justification for these changes is because divine messages are always communicated through human beings and therefore subject to error. It reads:

God’s revelation is thus marred by human fallibility. Beginning with the New Testament, divine revelation expresses itself in Christian holy texts that also express a form of hatred. The manifestations of this hatred resulted in a tradition of antisemitism that gave moral legitimacy to crimes against the Jewish people, the epitome of which is the Shoah.

Several themes in the New Testament have come under fire for being anti-Semitic. These include blaming Jews for the death of Jesus, and negative remarks about the stubborn nature of the Jewish people and their disloyalty to God.

So what is the IHRA working definition of antisemitism?

On May 26, 2016, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) — of which the United States is a member — adopted the following the “non-legally binding working definition of antisemitism“, which is used by the U.S. State Department:

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.

Alas, the working definition does not define what “hatred toward Jews” means, but that meaning can be gleaned from what the IHRA considers to be contemporary examples of antisemitism, including:

  • 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.
  • 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).
  • 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 interests of their own nations.
  • Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.

What the IHRA, European Jewish Congress and its Catalogue of Policies to Combat Antisemitism conveniently omit is that the Talmud, which supercedes the Torah (Old Testament) in religious authority for Jews, is rabidly anti-Christian.

Written in Hebrew between the third and sixth centuries, the Talmud is a collection of 63 books that together codify the oral law that Jewish rabbis claim was handed down from Moses. Jesus, in Matthew 15, however condemns that oral law when he said: “By the traditions of your elders you make void the Word of God.”

English translations of the Talmud have been watered down so as to conceal from the Gentiles the “satanic verses” contained in the original Hebrew. Those “satanic verses” can be classified into three categories:

  1. Jewish supremacy
  2. Hatred for “goys” or Gentiles
  3. Hatred for Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, and all Christians. Some examples:
    • Jesus (“Yashu”) is in Hell being “boiled in hot excrement” (Gittin 57a); Jesus was sexually immoral and “worshipped a brick” (Sanhedrin 107b); Jesus was cut off from the Jewish people for his wickedness and refusal to repent (Sotah 47a).
    • Mary (“Miriam the hairdresser”) was a prostitute who “had sex with many men” (Shabbath 104b, Hebrew Edition only); “She who was the descendant of princes and governors played the harlot with carpenters” (Sanhedrin 106a).
    • “Christians who reject the Talmud will go to hell and be punished there for all generations” (Rosh Hashanah 17a); “All things pertaining to the Goim are like a desert; the first person to come along and take them can claim them for his own” (Babha Bathra 54b).
