Leon Trotsky: On the Jewish Problem (1937-40)

http://www.marxists.org/archive/trotsky/1940/xx/jewish.htm

Leon Trotsky seems quite prescient in his analysis of the problems related to the Jewish Question" but also naïve in his ideologically based assumption that World Democratic Socialism would relieve us of the scourge of Anti-Semitism.

In other words, he describes many of the difficulties facing the Jews, but his remedy has subsequently been shown to have failed.

Calling Israel’s actions "Genocidal" is a deadly lie - Fight the Blood Libel by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Calling Israel's actions genocidal is a deadly lie
«Through the course of this war in Gaza, Israel's third there since it withdrew fully in 2005, I have had to respond publicly to a number of friends and acquaintances who either intentionally or unwittingly committed themselves to the ranks of Israel's most rabid haters. This is especially true of those who joined the global blood libel chorus that falsely and poisonously accuses Israel of genocide.

I was fully aware that in doing so I risked losing those relationships. But I responded nonetheless. Not just to defend Israel and the Jewish people against the depraved charge of mass murder, but because I heard the cry of those who perished in the seven real genocides in the 100 years since the First World War, whose anniversary we commemorated this year.»

Video Proof Counters UN Allegations

The Jewish Standard:
Israel is prepared this time. The IDF was tasked with documenting every aspect of the fighting in Gaza and is now prepared to declassify all information necessary to refute any claims by the United Nations or hostile NGOs with facts, maps and footage.

Your move, UN.

Anti-Zionism IS Anti-Semitism

http://jdlsl.wordpress.com/2008/07/08/anti-zionism-is-anti-semitism/
«Before responding to this, it is crucial to understand that this argument – that Israel's founding was illegitimate – is completely unrelated to anti-Zionism. An intellectually honest person who believes Israel's founding is illegitimate would still have to acknowledge that Zionism is an inseparable part of Judaism.

But the argument that Israel is illegitimate because its founding led to 600,000 to 700,000 Arab refugees is as anti-Jewish as is anti-Zionism. Virtually every country in the world was founded by displacing some of the people who had lived there, and many of those countries did far worse to far more people than Israel did. Therefore, anyone who calls only for Israel's destruction had better explain why, of all the states on earth whose founding was accompanied by the displacement of others, only the Jewish state is illegitimate.

Take Pakistan, for example. Unlike the Jewish state of Israel, which had existed twice before in history, there was never a country called Pakistan, nor was there ever any other independent Muslim country in the part of India that was carved out to create Pakistan. Moreover, if the Jewish state of Israel is illegitimate because it created 700,000 Arab refugees, why isn't the Muslim state of Pakistan, which created more than eight million Hindu refugees, illegitimate?

The answer is obvious. When people isolate the one Jewish state in the world for sanctions, opprobrium and delegitimizing, they are doing so because it is the Jewish state. And that, quite simply, is why anti-Zionism is simply another form of Jew-hatred.»
