2011 top ten anti-Israel/anti-Semitic slurs


For the last two years, The Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish human rights NGO, has compiled a list of the top ten anti-Israel and anti-Semitic slurs. The list continues to reflect the growing global anti-Semitism and de-legitimization of Israel coming from mainstream voices. It does not include statements by terrorist organizations, the lunatic fringe, or the government of Iran.

These citings should serve as a wake-up call to those who believe that such rants are the exclusive domain of Neo-Nazis and crackpots.

2010 Top 10 Anti-Semitic Slurs


In response to an alarming rise in anti-Semitic statements, the Simon Wiesenthal Center has released its “Top Ten Anti-Semitic Slurs of 2010.”  The list emphasizes the anti-Jewish statements publicly made by prominent figures from all over the world.

“Never before, in recent memory, has the Simon Wiesenthal Center seen such a proliferation of anti-Semitism going mainstream,” said Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean of the Center adding that “Our list of top ten anti-Semitic slurs runs the gamut of well-known personalities including journalists, government officials, celebrities, a prominent film director, and academics.”

Many of the quotes are classic Jewish conspiracy theories updated to reflect current anxieties, blaming the control of the media and banking sectors on Jews. “Unfortunately, our list shows that anti-Semitic canards normally thought to belong to the lunatic fringe have, in fact, been bought into by major elements of Western society,” Rabbi Hier concluded.

1) Helen Thomas, former UPI Senior White House correspondent

“Jews should get the hell out of Palestine. They should go home to Germany, Poland, America and everywhere else.” -May 2010 “Congress, the White House, Hollywood and Wall Street are owned by Zionists. They put their money where their mouth is.” -December 2010

2) Oliver Stone, film director

“Hitler is an easy scapegoat throughout history and it’s been used cheaply. He’s the product of a series of actions. It’s cause and effect.” -January 2010

“Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people,” [there is a greater focus on the Holocaust than on Russian suffering because of] “the Jewish domination of the media.” “There’s a major lobby in the United States,” “They are hard workers. They stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has f***** up U.S. foreign policy for years.” -July 2010

3) Former Malaysian Premier Mahatir Mohammad

“Jews “had always been a problem in European countries. They had to be confined to ghettoes and periodically massacred.” … “Even after the massacre by the Nazis of Germany, they survived to continue to be a source of even greater problems for the world.” –January 2010

4) Al-Mutawakil Taha, Deputy Minister of Information for the Palestinian Authority

“The Jews have no historical or religious ties to theTemple Mount or the Western Wall. There is no archeological evidence that theTemple Mount was built during the period of King Solomon….” -November 2010

5) Thilo Sarrazin, Central Bank Executive for the German Government

“All Jews have a certain gene … that makes them different from other people.” -August 2010

6) Karel de Gucht – European Union’s Chief Trade Negotiator

“…Don’t underestimate the power of the Jewish Lobby on Capitol Hill. … You shouldn’t underestimate the grip it has on American politics, no matter whether it’s Republicans or Democrats.” – September 2010

7) Rick Sanchez, former CNN correspondent

“He’s [Jon Stewart] upset that someone of my ilk is almost at his level… I’m telling you that everyone who runs CNN is a lot like Stewart, and a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart, and to imply that somehow they, the people in this country who are Jewish are an oppressed minority? [sarcastically] Yeah.” – October 2010

8) Dr Petras Stankeras, historian and Interior Ministry advisor, Lithuania

“The [Nuremberg Trial was] the biggest legal farce in history… the legend about six million supposedly murdered Jews acquired a legal basis, even though the court did not have a single document signed by A. Hitler concerning the extermination of Jews….” –2010

9) Christina Patterson journalist, The Independent newspaper, UK

“I would like to teach some of my neighbors some manners… I don’t care if they wear frock coats and funny suits and hats covered in plastic bags and insist on wearing their hair in ringlets (if they’re male) or covered up by wigs (if they’re female), but I do think they could treat their neighbors with a bit more courtesy and respect. I didn’t realize that goyim were about as welcome in the Hasidic Jewish shops as Martin Luther King, Jr. at a Ku Klux Klan convention. I didn’t realize that a purchase by a goy was a crime to be punished with monosyllabic terseness or that bus seats were a potential source of contamination or that road signs and parking restrictions were for people who hadn’t been chosen by G-d.” – 2010

10) Social Networks and Anti-Semitism:

Yahoo Finance, Goldman Sachs Message Boards, 2010:
“da-m jew-s; bernanke and geithner’s free money scheme to the banks destroyed the value of the rational americans savings, and of the chinese economic development of asia.” “And what do ya know, Golden Slacks the leading jewry criminal organization!!! Where`s the Gestapo when you reall need them???” “I never hated people before.Today I hate the guts of JEWS. The JEWS have poisoned America. They have poisoned good people.
I never would have thought that I would hate the JEWS. For what teh JEWS have done to Americans, it is unforgiving…[sic].” “Irony how US always bail out the jews & jews end up screwing USA!!! [sic].”
“Stinking Jews finally getting what they deserve Burn all the jews up [sic]”

FACEBOOK 2010 sites include:
“Kill a Jew Year” and “Kill a Jew Day.”
