FAQs: defamation campaign against Israel
Delegitimize Israel is a political campaign, economic and philosophical targeting pull right of the State of Israel to exist and denied the right of the Jewish people to self-determination in their homeland.
Anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism
The delegitimization campaign of a political campaign, economic and philosophical aims to withdraw the right of the State of Israel to exist, and to deny the right of the Jewish people to self-determination in their homeland.
The ultimate goal is to delegitimize the elimination of Israel as a Jewish state. According to those who seek to delegitimize Israel, Israel lacks the right to self-defense, but also the right to stay, knowing that they would want to make Israel’s collapse by undermining the moral legitimacy and the reduction of military procedures and distortion image and isolate Israel as a pariah state.
There is a difference between acceptable criticism directed at Israeli policies and the criticism that delegitimize Israel as a state and the mere existence, taking away legitimacy beyond the project, which deals with specific Israeli policies discourse, represents a fundamental challenge to its right to exist. Israel is standing ready to deal with than criticizing in good faith, as long as not knocking the three elements of the new anti-Semitism, namely the delegitimization and demonization and double standards.
Although the ultimate goal is to eliminate the Jewish state, but the miners legitimacy for Israel does not speak openly about the demise of Israel, but rather resort to soften their speech with words like “one-state solution”, or the equality between Israel and the State of apartheid or Nazism, leaving the listeners task themselves to reach the result that would have it crooked. The resort to comparisons with apartheid and the Nazis is not a coincidence, as it is a way have been selected carefully, in order to address two of the most serious atrocities of the twentieth century, and which were magnets of crimes against humanity and two goals to eliminate them.
Used delegitimization campaign and a wide variety of themes hostile to Israel as well as the comparison Balabartheid described Nazi victims to Nazis, it denies Israel’s natural right to security and self-defense, and offered as an international criminal, and depicts the Zionist ideology of racism and denies the historic link between the Jewish people and old homeland, especially in Jerusalem. And supports delegitimize one-state solution and the “right of return” for Palestinian refugees alleged, both of which are Segerdan identity of Israel as a Jewish state.
Delegitimization events in non-governmental organizations and popular movements, universities and the general public have focused campaigns. And harm to delegitimize the use of international institutions in attacking Israel campaign, is also trying to invent new legal principles could be used against Israel, but they tried to prosecute Israeli political and military officials in Western countries under the pretext of alleged to have committed war crimes. The delegitimization campaign cash camouflage activities of the project, through the modification of ethics, human rights and the law to achieve its goals.
The delegitimization campaign is the political, economic, cultural and ideological war on Israel, and characterized by excessive and obsessive focus on Israel, which is also incompatible with freedom of expression and open dialogue, trying to undermine the scientific exchange and business links.
Israel is the only country in the world that hovers questions and Chen just attacks on the legitimacy of its existence, and facing the debate is not about borders, but about its very existence. Other states, even African and Asian ones, which was established along the borders drawn by the colonial powers, no one doubted the legitimacy of national states, as despite the fact that Israel the only country that recognized the right of the United Nations presence and its predecessor the League of Nations alike, and it Vmhoud hypocrisy that runs those Skeptics in the Jewish people’s right to self-determination in the State of Israel, often to support the Palestinians’ right to self-determination embodied in the Palestinian state.
Nazaao legitimate claims that they are supporting the Palestinian cause, but they are in fact working against peace, some of them accept the “Hamas”, which rejects peace talks and seeks to destroy Israel. They usually abandon the concept of coexistence, and reject the only realistic solution to the conflict, a two-state solution, because it means accepting the existence of Israel. They also do not care about the situation of the Palestinians outside Israel, Mngadin their status as second class citizens and the dilemmas they face in most Arab countries.
The delegitimize approach caused direct harm peace efforts, because it deludes the Palestinians can find enough international pressure to force Israel to comply with any Palestinian demand without resorting to real negotiations. It also seriously undermine the confidence of the Israelis supported by the international community for the actions of self-defense that Israel would resort to in the event of assault after the withdrawal of the land within the scope of a peaceful agreement.
Delegitimization campaign is not any service Provides a peaceful settlement of the conflict, and should be denouncing nefarious objectives and exploitation of distorting the principles of human rights and international law, and so forth, it is time to delegitimize delegitimize Israel.
And just as it was in the past eras of Jewish conversion scapegoat in many of the issues and problems, are today trying to transform Israel into a pariah.
Despite the fact that the Jewish religion, but that the Jews constitute a people has its own language, culture and literature, and his history of the joint. The Zionist way this people to find a common future as well.
Jews have supported people with different beliefs, whether religious or secular, left-wing or right-wing and, ideals of Zionism and their right to have their national homeland, like other nations in all corners of the globe.
Jews who have been subjected to harsh persecution over the times and ages have realized that their destiny as a people lies in the establishment of their own, because it is not possible to the Jewish people to ensure the security, but within the Jewish state, will not be able to live walk all the customs, traditions, culture and religion, and the feeling of being a nation of Nations However, in the Jewish state, and can not only provide shelter and refuge for Jews fleeing persecution in various parts of the world the Jewish state.
Zionism can be considered from multiple national liberation movement of the people and respects the abandonment of the historic homeland. Zionism differ from many national liberation movements from one perspective, is that the Jews, instead of behind their liberty in the pursuit of a new entity, sought to re-establish the old independent state.
And the Zionist kun crystallize contemporary political movement before the nineteenth century, where not call it by that name only in 1890, but the yearning to re-establish the state of Israel back to ancient times, as the longings of Jews to return to their homeland began before nearly 2,000 years In the year 70 AD oldest Romans to destroy the Temple of Jerusalem and the settlement of the land, which was the religious and administrative capital of the state of the Jewish people. This terrible Demolition spent on Jewish independence, where most of the Jews were displaced during the Israeli state following decades. But few of them remained in place, so that continues to the Jewish presence in the land of Israel without interruption throughout history.
Although displaced, the majority of Jews did not interrupt the hope of returning to their homeland, where their prayers were full of decency and aspirations to return. For example, when the celebratory dinner hosted by Jews all over the world the night of the Passover holiday is finished, repeat every year reign, which says: “Next year in Jerusalem”, and that all Jews, wherever they may be, are performing their prayers as they face Jerusalem. And is associated with a lot of aspects of Jewish spirituality closely the physical appearances of the Land of Israel, which relate to a lot of prayers and the statutes, the Land of Israel.
That the Jews link the Land of Israel was not limited to prayers, as in the late nineteenth century, and while the nationalist movements crystallize in Europe, and while it was anti-Semitism in Europe is growing, initiated by an Austrian journalist Jew named Theodor Herzl, to organize a national movement of the Jewish people , the Zionist movement. At the same time, but independently of the Zionist activities in Europe, taking Yemen, Iraq, Turkey and Morocco, Jews are returning to their homeland.
And awarded the League of Nations, the international body that preceded the United Nations, recognition of the goals of Zionism while Mandate established in 1922, and that by announcing that it “supports the establishment of a national home for the Jewish people in Palestine …”. Jews began to return in increasing numbers, but they are limited, under harsh conditions and then under the restrictions placed on the return of British Jews. Did not open wide the doors to return only when you create the state of Israel in 1948.
Today, Zionism is struggling to Hfaraúal international pariah state.
The dividing line between legitimate criticism and that criticism is marked by the new anti-Semitism, often some find it difficult to identify it. The former minister Natan Sharansky select criteria that draw this dividing line within the foundational article written instrument A7 age-Semitic?
But, a lot is happening, but very often, that denounced Israel beyond the limits of legitimate criticism to become a defamatory and libelous can be considered anti-Semitic. The common term to describe this kind of cynicism and recklessness is a “new anti-Semitism”. Just as in the past has been to convert the Jews scapegoats for many of the problems, taking place today attempts to make Israel a pariah state internationally.
The dividing line between legitimate criticism and that criticism is marked by the new anti-Semitism, often some find it difficult to identify it. The former minister Natan Sharansky select criteria that draw this dividing line within the foundational article written in 2004 entitled “the three-dimensional anti-Semitism”, where he said that the three dimensions of the new anti-Semitism is the demonization and double standards and delegitimization.
Demonization: Just as the Jews are Hitnthm for centuries and centuries through what he described as evil incarnate, Israel unspeakable evil entity. A big part of the criticism of such equality between Israel and the Nazis on the one hand, and between the Palestinians and the victims of the Holocaust of the Jews on the other hand, note that the distortion of the meaning of the Holocaust is not confined to the Arab world, but gaining support in the West as well. This technique of propaganda is outrageous because it does not distort the falsely struggle of Israel to defend itself, but also because they also degrade the indescribable suffering that the words which have been the victims of Nazism, which in itself is a form of Holocaust denial.
Double standards: test of judgment on double standards is the answer to the question of whether Israel was judged different from those governed by the other countries in similar circumstances criteria. It is possible to find double standards in international forums that are unique to Israel for criticism to which standards do not apply to any other country, while being overlooked for the behavior of other countries in similar circumstances even worse. And often can be identified cases of the application of double standards by the vast amount of criticism, as well as quality.
And serve as invitations to the boycott of Israel is an important example of the double standards. If such calls were part of a broader campaign against many systems violate human rights in a terrible, because Israel can not reply that coverage in these countries is the draft list. But, while Israel is unilaterally in such calls for the province, we are in front of a clear manifestation of anti-Semitic activity.
Delegitimization: new anti-Semites trying to legitimize the mere existence of a Jewish state disarmament, and do so either through undermine their right to have founded originally, either by trying to transform Israel today to an international pariah state, for example, through the use of charged phrases such as apartheid, any chapter racial, or violation of human rights. Natan Sharansky wrote: “At a time when it can be criticism of Israeli policy is not an anti-Semitic, the denial of Israel’s right to exist is not supreme in all cases, if other people’s right to live safely in their own home, the Jewish people really in live safely at home is the other. “
There is another test of the secondary, but many important to distinguish between legitimate criticism and illegal cash, which test the intentions of the owner of the criticism, as the critic of the project accept Israel’s right to exist as a nation for the Jewish people, while the anti-Semites refuse this right.
It is clear that not all criticism of Asamya, Israeli society is supporting the firm of democracy is itself a critic of society and all the cruelty and stringent. However, the Allasamyin Israelis do not share their interest in improving their community, Their aim delegitimize the state of Israel in the short term, and destroy them in the long run, there is nothing Israel can do to satisfy such.
Although there is no relationship between criticism of Israel and the project between anti-Semitism, but some of denunciation and condemnation of the unacceptable trace its roots back to the visions of anti-Semitism, which often disappear behind the “anti-Zionism”. Israel is dedicated to the principles of a democratic state believes that criticism, whether it comes from the same countries of the world or our people, is a major driving force for positive change. But there is a clear difference between legitimate calls for improvement and attempts to delegitimize Israel through comparisons bring far from common sense and use the demonization of Israel and unilaterally demand the application of technologies or standards are not demanding any other application. These types of criticism ignores the context in which Israel finds itself forced it to seek survival in the face of violent attacks on its citizens, and the mere presence in a lot of cases, but in quite a lot.
Anti-Semitism is the expression given to the racism that they are exercised the right of the Jewish people type, although the literal translation of the expression of anti-Semitism or anti-Semitism may seem to refer to the anti-all Semitic peoples, but that is a misconception, as has been the introduction of this expression in Germany in 1879 to describe the anti-Jewish campaigns in Europe in that era, then became a benefit of persecuting Jews or discrimination against them in all parts of the world, therefore the Arabs who claim that they can not be for Asamyin or anti-Semitic, they are Semites themselves, trying to blur the issue, to impart patent racist beliefs, nothing else. Adding to this attempt to rudeness cleared of racism charge universe extremist anti-Semitism is present in many Arab countries these days.
Although the origin of the expression of anti-Semitism due to the relatively short period, but that the phenomenon of the hatred of the Jewish people striking phenomenon in football, where he took on various forms of anti-Semitism, using a variety of topics throughout history. In the modern era, it has raised the flag of the hardline nationalist Alakaúdiat and other Alakaúdiat. The anti-Semitism culminating in the Holocaust, where he was the extermination of six million Jews who were Jews make up a third of the world’s population to about a brutal and systematic during World War II.
Contemporary Anti-Semitism has erupted again, and violently adult, in recent years, after restraining them for a couple of decades in the wake of the Holocaust, has a new face overlooked this time, namely the “anti-Zionism” or anti-Israel, and that in spite of the fact that the Zionist national liberation of the Jewish people movement As an expression of their yearning for the project self-determination and national independence. The Zionist movement was founded to provide for the people of old with his own homeland of his ancestors in a sovereign state. Israel represents a contemporary political incarnation of this ancient historic dream. The deprivation of the right of Jews to have a state of their own, means the denial of the right of self-determination which is enjoyed by other nations, and this discrimination is anti-Semitism.
The goal of anti-Zionism to undermine the legitimacy of Israel, and thus deprive the Jewish people of his place in the family of nations. Accordingly, the denial of Zionism represents an assault on the fundamental right of Israel to exist as an equal with all other countries, what constitutes a violation of one of the most basic principles of international law.
Just as anti-Semitism deprive Jews of their rights as individuals in society, attacking anti-Zionism to the Jewish people at the state level and at the international level. As has been the “Jewish” to use a scapegoat for many of the problems of the communities, has been unilaterally denounce Israel’s unilateral Allamtanasb and in the international arena.
And often overlooks the face of anti-Zionism as attacks on Israel in the United Nations and other international forums, where he has been over the years, the use of multiple events in the international arena as an opportunity to denounce Israel, whoever was the subject under discussion, and whatever the link between him and the Middle East conflict tiny.
And even more than that, it is not coincidental that the rebuke Israel in international forums and in the international media is often accompanied by a sharp increase in incidents of anti-Semitic violence in many parts of the world.
At a time when considered legitimate criticism of the policies of Israeli particular an integral part of the democratic process, the cash that goes beyond the limits of legality through demonization and practicing double standards or delegitimize Israel, must be regarded as a manifestation of the “new anti-Semitism”, noting that anti-Semitism traditional Pencchtaha and new, and in which Israel is treated as a Jew of the international community, deserve the most boos and condemnation phrases.
What is the reason an increasing number of anti-Semitic attacks?
Caused delegitimize Israel campaign a sharp rise in attacks against the backdrop of anti-Israel and anti-Semitism in the world. At the same time taking the fading line between legitimate criticism of Israel and anti-Semitic attacks on Jewish targets.
Since the start of the second intifada in September 2000, and Israel is under an international campaign of delegitimization, which give rise to any military operation carried out by Israel, a new wave of attacks, but at the same time, the more Israel made the biggest concessions for the sake of peace, whenever exposed to attacks verbal. I Israel was attacked in the media and international forums, as exposed to slander and libel by political leaders and thinkers, where they were questioning the mere right to exist and its fundamental role in the defense of its citizens, but the extremists on the right of the political map and its left met the hatred of the Jewish state. It is clear that this attacks beyond the limits of justifiable criticism, which considers Israel, as a democratic state apply in the veins, a part of the letter states the project, but it is not the project of Israel disparaging manner to Amtanasbh privilege and monopoly out and claim to abide by the standards of not demanding ideals any other country, nor is it of the project, the demonization of Israel in any form. Nor can also acceptance of trying to delegitimize the mere presence or existence as a nation for the Jewish people. The underlying reasons behind this growing phenomenon for many, as it is closely linked to the Palestinians the ability to market their image as victims are weak, and I took advantage of this concept is to play on the feelings of the protectors of human rights at a time which provides the leaders of Hamas and the terrorists on the violation of the most basic human rights enjoyed by the Israelis of their victims and innocent victims of their own people themselves. It is as shown by the media of bias factor important contributor to delegitimize Israel factors, it is not surprising that the Western audience who trusts informing usually affected by being exposed to portray the Middle East conflict in a manner characterized by a great deal of one-sided. There is another type of conviction more dependent on ideology often encouraged by those who are willing to overlook all violations of totalitarian regimes, no matter how blatant, but they jeer to any defensive measure taken by democratic countries . There is also a role to play visions of traditional anti-Semitism, which often wears the mantle of anti-Zionist attitudes, is that there are not able or not willing to distinguish between the Jewish state and the Jewish communities in the world and attach moral assault on Israel’s legitimacy physical assault on Jewish targets in various parts of the world, including Europe. The attacks included bombings of anti-Semitism and setting fire to synagogues and Jewish schools, vandalism and desecration of Jewish cemeteries and death threats and violence against the Jews and the assault without any justification to the extent of murder. The hatred these against individuals and religious leaders and sectarian institutions crimes by perpetrators often as the work “anti-Zionism”. These attacks often increase at the outbreak of armed conflict, the attacks recorded anti-Semitism during the operation, which was carried out in the Gaza Strip during the months of December 2008 January January 2009 a record has not been recorded since the end of World War II. The situation in the Middle East were worse than that, if the speech was poisonous anti-Israel is unusual in eras past, it has worsened over the last decade, so have the myths and legends of anti-Semitic But Israel, which is often enshrined governments have their own agendas, high rates of confidence between the population and the ratification of the region, noting that Torrent supply units for the fictional accusations baseless broadcast by Palestinian spokesmen have contributed greatly to the exciting waves rising anti-Semitism. One of the consequences of this increase in hate attacks on Jews and Jewish targets. The Israel Committee is greatly concerned about the recent increase tangible manifestations of anti-Semitism that target Jewish communities in Europe and elsewhere. It is this growing phenomenon that is deeply troubling, when civilized people, where appeals to Israel’s governments of the countries where the epidemic of anti-Semitism is spreading to take all necessary measures to ensure the security of Jewish communities and to prosecute the perpetrators of these legally unfortunate attacks, and should be an interview inciting anti-Semitic, either by individuals or organizations or even from the leaders of some countries, the amount of conviction and every possible occasion. The Holocaust denial, in whatever form, is of moral vices, and the only means to ensure non-recurrence of what the future is unmatched revive his memory and documented.

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar
* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege. For an overview of All Israeli Massacres Palestinians go here Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians. How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
