US ambassador in Belgium provides controversial explanation for Muslim anti-Semitism.
Growing global anti-Semitism is linked to Israel’s policy towards the Palestinians, the American ambassador to Belgium told stunned Jewish conference attendants in Brussels earlier this week.
A distinction should be made between traditional anti-Semitism, which should be condemned and Muslim hatred for Jews, which stems from the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, Howard Gutman said. He also argued that an Israeli-Palestinian peace treaty will significantly diminish Muslim anti-Semitism.
Speaking Wednesday at a Jewish conference on anti-Semitism organized by the European Jewish Union (EJU,) Howard Gutman told participants he was apologizing in advance if his words are not to their liking. He then proceeded to make controversial statements about his views on Muslim anti-Semitism, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Friday.
It is amazing that a learned man do not understand that we can not draw a line between acceptable Jew-hate, and not acceptable Jew-hate.
Inside the World of Howard Gutman, Jew-hate of Nazis can not be accepted. Because this hate was not linked to any demand from Arabs, for the eviction of the British rulers in “Palestine”.
If the Arab demand for “Palestine” had been raise before 1941, the Holocaust could be justified. Because Jew-hate linked to the demand for “Palestine” is valid. Hitler would have found favor in the eyes of men like Howard Gutman.
The US Ambassador would have given the Nazi-leader an valid excuse for the Holocaust. Simply because there were Jewish resistance to deny their rights to their ancient homeland. Gutman’s logic is that If the Arabs had got “Palestine” already in 1940, there was no need for the Holocaust. The Jew-hate of Hitler was beyond reason.
In the perspectives drawn by Gutman, all Jew-hate before the PLO was formed in 1964, can not be justified. Not even hate towards Jews because the state of Israel was re-birthed in 1948. Because the existence of the Jewish statehood it self, is not a valid reason to hate Jews.
But hatred against Jews can be justified after the PLO was formed in 1964. Because the fresh demand for…..“Palestine” came in…1964.
Wait a minute…..PLO was formed in 1964, when the Arabs was in full control of Gaza, The so-called West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Golan….
So Jew-hates that is based on the 1964-demand for “Palestine”, is rooted in a demand for the abolishment of the state of Israel. The liberation of the full Jewish state for “allah”. This is the very base for the Jew-haters of Islamic terrorism.
Howard Gutman is just another anti-Semite who do not know what kind of devilish non sense he speaks. That he happens to be the US Ambassador to Belgium is a tragedy. Also for the Belgians, but more for the American people who send these kind of representatives abroad.
