Speak out loud against Antisemitism

“Let me tell you something that we Israelis have against Moses. He took us 40 years through the desert in order to bring us to the one spot in the Middle East that has no oil!”

“Above all, this country is our own. Nobody has to get up in the morning and worry what his neighbors think of him. Being a Jew is no problem here.”

-Golda Meir

I would like to share one tragic story with you. Indeed , at the moment I live in Belgrade, hence, I have decided one day to visit one shop in order to buy something.
Additionally, there was a man who used to be a monk, he saw my star of David around my neck. That good man really respects Jews. It made me happy.

However, the other man, Ljuba, who owns the store was gypsy. I didn’t care, in my opinion there are bad and good men in every country. Hence, he started to insult Ashkenazi Jews, claiming that they had a deal with Germans, so they could make Israel.

I was in shock.

Moreover, he clarified that Jews changed gypsies’ identity, named them Romas, because Jews wanted to hide the truth that 6 000 000 Rooms were killed.

According to some sources, I got information that he is an Egyptian, still it has to be confirmed.

I could not believe what I heard. Those insults could say only someone who is fed by hate.

Furthermore, he did not show any regret about Jewish victims, he has insulted state of Israel and innocent victims of Holocaust.

According to him Israel is an evil because it has strong army.
We, who love Israel are so proud on IDF. Israel is not just a state it is an emotion. Pure emotion will never be destroying.

Importantly, my question was simple: “If Israelis destroy army, enemies will immediately attack Holly Land, right?
His answered: „It is not Jewish land “.

Pride of every Zionist is IDF. Pride of every Zionist is that miserable people could not destroy Jewish soul. Israel is Holly!
I could not understand that someone supports horrific gas chambers, he supported it.

I hate none, those who hate and spread lies and propaganda are sick. I feel sorry for them.

“Jews are guilty because they are rich”- He told it without a shame.
When I have asked him who was Sergej Nilus, (he was an agent, it was ordered to him to write shameful book “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”)
Furthermore, he told me that he doesn’t care, It is Jewish lie.
Nilus admitted that shameful book was falsification and lie. However, unfortunately many people defend that book just because they hate Jews.
Danilo Kis, his father was Jewish and mother from Montenegro, he wrote special book about this case it is named: “Book of kings and fools”.

In addition, when I have asked him about “Jasenovac”, it was such a brutal concentration camp for Serbs, Rooms and Jews.
His answer was: “Who obligated Serbs to go there?”

I have to admit that I never have talked with such cruel person, full of hate.

Next day I went to Serbian police, they have listened me carefully, and immediately react. I guess they spoke with him, because I write down everything what has happened.
I know it is police job to defend people, however, it is nice when you meet kind inspectors who does not care about which religion do you support.
I am glad that Serbian police has helped me and I hope those people as that man will be far away from us.
I am proud because I did not remain silent, being silent is worst crime of those who hate.

“It is true that we have won all our wars, but we have paid for them.”
