The UN is still anti-Semitic

Most Israelis wouldn’t expect anything else. Old wounds heal slowly. But let’s look at the facts of 2020. Well, the United Nations just reconfirmed its yearly Israel bashing stance. Condemning Israel 7-fold.

But anti-Israel doesn’t need to be antisemitic? Well, please check the by now renowned, respected, and widely underwritten Working Definition of Antisemitism, or fully, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of antisemitism. To single out Israel for criticism is antisemitic.

Our new ‘friends,’ Bahrain, the UAE, and Sudan, all signed against us.

Recently, the parliament of the Netherlands made its government promise to stop participating in this hate fest. Well, it just broke its promise. No, different from ToI reporting, the German parliament is happy with it and Germany honored the hatred. Who needs enemies with friends like that?

Europe. Never apologized for the genocides on Jews ‘for causing the Black Plague,’ or during the Crusades. Didn’t allow survivors from the Nazi death camps to return. Voted for a Jewish State to dump its Jewish Problem. Keeps criticizing us for our supposed anti-Muslim stance. Never mind how anti-Muslim they are. Civil servants forbidden to show religious affiliation. Who in Israel cares about the religion of a State representative?

We see the problem clearly in the following small anecdote. US bombers flew to Poland in WW II to bomb a Nazi factory. On their way, they saw Auschwitz and asked permission to bomb that too. Permission denied.

Conclusion: The People is OK. It’s the higher ranks of society that are the most antisemitic. As soon as they are out of the public eye, they will betray and sell out the Jews. And no one watches what happens in the UN.

People of Europe! Stand up for your dignity! Follow your leaders like a hawk and insist on a permanent and unbreakable alliance with the Jews!

That’s for Europe. But, some countries are the evil opposite. Their leaders sweet-talk us, but their populations are highly antisemitic. I’ll spare you the list. There are dozens. I would like, tens of thousands of German and Austrian democrats to infiltrate these lands and teach love and solidarity with the Jews. Not for our sake. For theirs. The Holocaust and its denial are meant to hurt us, but they’re debacles of the perpetrators, not our defeat.

The leadership of the Palestinian Arabs meanwhile maintains its stance.

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (, born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a strict vegan since 2008. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach, and, lehavdil bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff, and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years, he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, LGBTQIA, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quite a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second-generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500th blog post with the ToI. If you're a native English speaker and wonder why you should read from people whose English is only their second language, consider the advantage of having a peek outside of your cultural bubble. * NEW: To see other blog posts by him, his overspill blog you can reach by clicking on the Website icon next to his picture at the head of every post. There you may find precursors to later TOI blog posts, addition or corrections of published TOI blog posts, blog posts the TOI will not carry, and some thoughts that are too short to be a TOI blog post. Also, the TOI only allows for one blog post per blogger per 24 hours. Sometimes, he has more to say than that. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
