Fwd: Arutz Sheva: "The Jew of Malta" at Center for Jewish History & The Shame at The American Sephardi Federation

Subject: Arutz Sheva: "The Jew of Malta" at Center for Jewish History & The Shame at The American Sephardi Federation
Why is a Jewish group showing an anti-Semitic play?
"The Jew of Malta" is to be shown at the Center for Jewish HIstory. Would an African-American group show a racist film at one of their centers?
The ZOA has just learned that one of the most anti-Semitic plays of all time, Christopher Marlowe's "The Jew of Malta" (written in 1565) is scheduled to be performed in a few days at the Center for Jewish History (CJH) headed by controversial Israel-basher David Myers.
Why is a Jewish group showing this anti-Jewish play? Would any African American group ever show the notorious racist film "The Birth of a Nation"?
The travesty of performing such an anti-Semitic play at CJH also reinforces ZOA's previous exposé and demand that the CEO of the Center of Jewish History, David Myers, who has a long record of propagandizing against Israel, needs to be removed from his post.
The play's protagonist, the Jewish merchant Barabas, is a money-obsessed, vulgar, traitorous mass murderer. The play increased anti-Semitism in England, and contributed to the anti-Semitic atmosphere that led to the torture, conviction and execution of the Queen of England's Portuguese Jewish physician, Rodrigo Lopez, in 1594, on likely false charges of conspiring to poison the Queen. (One of the methods that "The Jew of Malta" play's Jewish protagonist used to murder people was poisoning them; the Jewish character Barabas poisons a whole convent of nuns, including his daughter who has converted to Christianity, and other people.)
Audiences seeing Marlowe's play believed that Jews really were as evil as the play presents them to be. The play also led to other anti-Semitic plays such as the Merchant of Venice, and the additional promulgation of blood libels against Jews.
The Jewish character Barabas' lines in the play include: "First, be thou void of these affections."; "Compassion, love, vain hope, and heartless fear."; "Be moved at nothing; see thou pity none."
Barabas's daughter's lines include: "There is no love on earth, pity in Jews, nor piety in Turks."
In other words, both of them say that Jews are cold-hearted, and lack pity or compassion for anyone. Of course that's the opposite of who Jews are.
According to the play, Jews are damned. Malta's governor tells Barabas that Jews, like infidels, live "hateful lives" and "stand accursed in the site of heaven."
ZOA has contacted the American Sephardi Federation (ASF), a Center for Jewish History member group involved with the play and was given the extremely misguided flawed excuses that "there will be a Note to the Audience about the horrifying history of The Jew of Malta" and that someone "will make mention of that history" and that "the production is a vehicle for exploring anti-Semitism, particularly against Sephardim."
These excuses are contradicted by the advertisements for the play. The CJH advertisement for the play (posted on CJH's website) says that the "American Sephardi Federation proudly presents the Jew of Malta," and makes no mention of any supposed "educational" purpose.
Any educational purpose could be far better served by a lecture about the anti-Semitism in the play instead of showing it.
A mention of the play's history does not justify performing a vicious blatantly anti-Semitic play. And CJH and ASF's performance of "The Jew of Malta" risks making this horrendous anti-Semitic play "kosher" for others to perform.
ZOA demands that CJH and ASF cancel the performance of this play – or replace it with an educational discussion about the anti-Semitism in the play.
The travesty of performing such an anti-Semitic play at CJH also reinforces ZOA's previous exposé and demand that the CEO of the Center of Jewish History, David Myers, who has a long record of propagandizing against Israel, needs to be removed from his post. (See "ZOA: Hostile-to-Israel Propagandist David Myers Should Not Lead Center for Jewish History," Sept. 18, 2017.)
This is a desgrace, Jewish anti semits, are worse than non Jewish anti semits. Do this ignorant people think that G.D forbid there was another Holocaust, that they would be safe , I can tell thrm they wouldn't, the same as nazi Jewish supporters in Europe who thought that they would be safe , they weren't.
remove David Meyers from the CJH URGENTLY or close down the CJH !!
This organization under its new self-hating Jewish President should be renamed the Center for anti-Jewish History.
What possible benefit for humankind to make a more harmonious world? Get rid of meyers !!!

Fwd: Another Jewish Institution giving a voice to Israel bashers. Museum of Jewish Heritage for shame has been taken over by the big bad wolf as well.
How it's done: Not complicated...
About Samantha Powers who drove Israel under the bus...

Subject: Another Jewish Institution giving a voice to Israel bashers
Shavua tov my friends,How can The Museum of Jewish Heritage give Sammantha Powers a platform on December 7 at 7:00 pm? How can a Museum that claims to be informed by our history give a voice to a woman who refused to veto UN Resolution 2334. Sammantha Powers' actions presuppose that Jews illegally occupy much of Israel including The Temple Mount and the Western Wall.Friends, not only do we need to confront the Linda Sarsours of the world, we must speak out against elements within the Jewish establishment who give legitimacy to the likes of a Sammantha Powers.Please check out the names on these links to supporters and leadership
of the Museum. If you know anyone please take a few moments to contact them and offer them your thoughts.Best regards,Paul

Fwd: ZOA Condemns HIAS, J St, NCJW, Recon. Rabbis, NIF For Defending Israel-Bashing, Jew-Hater Linda Sarsour

Zionist Organization of America
ZOA Condemns HIAS, J St, NCJW, Recon. Rabbis, NIF For Defending/Working with Israel-Bashing, Jew-Hater Linda SarsourRadical Letter's Signers Include HIAS Head Mark Hetfield, J Street Heads Ben-Ami and Kovner, New Israel Fund Leaders, National Council of Jewish Women's Nancy Kaufman, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College's Liebling and Others
NEW YORK, November 27, 2017
Ms. Sarsour is back in the news again, due to The New School's plan to feature Ms. Sarsour on a panel later this month, that the New York Post aptly described as follows: "It's the very definition of Orwellian: a panel titled "Anti-Semitism and the Struggle for Justice" that's actually meant to promote Israel-bashing." ("The New School's Fake Panel 'To Combat Anti-Semitism'," New York Post, Nov. 19, 2017.)
While looking into the New School's Sarsour travesty, we ran across a shocking letter signed by extremist "Jewish leaders" defending Linda Sarsour from purportedly being "falsely maligned, smeared and attacked." The letter also states,"We condemn the recent attacks" against Linda Sarsour, "these attacks are dangerous…undermine core Jewish values of compassion, humility and human dignity…we will not stand by as Sarsour is falsely maligned, harassed and smeared…we publicly state our commitment to work alongside her for a more just and equal society."
The letter's signers include: HIAS President Mark Hetfield; HIAS Rabbi Jennie Rosen (HIAS receives tens of millions of dollars of government grants to resettle Muslim immigrants in America, and has changed its name from Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society to HIAS, apparently to reflect that they now concentrate on bringing Muslims to America-as opposed to its former mission to bring Jews to America ); J Street leaders Jeremy Ben-Ami, Victor Kovner and Rachel Lerner (this is sadly not surprising: J Street features leaders of the anti-Israel boycott movement (BDS) at J Street's conferences); and leaders of the New Israel Fund (NIF has funded hostile-to-Israel groups that promote anti-Israel BDS); National Council of Jewish Women; Reconstructionist Rabbinical College; IfNotNow; Open Hillel (a group that demands that college Hillel houses must be "open" to sponsoring anti-Israel events); and similar groups. Other signers include gay leader Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum (who ironically signed in support of Linda Sarsour despite Sarsour's hateful anti-feminist-Zionist tweets including her tweet that Ayaan Hirsi Ali's "vagina should be taken away" and the Arab world's horrific treatment of gays) and Tony Kushner (who stated "it would have been better if Israel never happened" and writes plays that propagandize against Israel).
As ZOA has previously documented, Sarsour openly supports the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel; opposes the Jewish State of Israel's right to exist; expresses her unbridled hatred on Twitter with statements such as "Nothing is creepier than Zionism" and "[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu is a waste of a human being".
Tellingly, the Jewish extremists' "letter for Linda" never specifies even a single false smear or attack that Linda Sarsour has purportedly been subjected to.
And that's because the condemnation of Linda Sarsour is based on Ms. Sarsour's own, repeated, vile statements and activities.
As ZOA has previously documented, Sarsour openly supports the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel; opposes the Jewish State of Israel's right to exist; expresses her unbridled hatred on Twitter with statements such as "Nothing is creepier than Zionism" and "[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu is a waste of a human being"; posted a photo of a young Arab child with rocks in both his hands approaching Israeli soldiers, and praised this as "the definition of courage"; tweeted in response to the justifiable concerns raised by New York City Council Member Rory Lancman and others "The Zionist trolls are out to play. Bring it."; and tweeted her support for the intifada. Intifadas are essentially anti-Semitic pogroms: Palestinian-Arab terrorists murdered and maimed thousands of Jews in the intifadas. Yet, Sarsour described the intifadas as "invaluable on many fronts."
Sarsour also recently proudly shared a podium with convicted terrorist Rasmea Odeh – who murdered two Jewish college students in a 1969 supermarket bombing in Israel, was a member of designated terrorist group PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine), and was being deported for concealing her terrorist crimes on her U.S. immigration forms. Sarsour said she was "honored to be on this stage with Rasmea."
Sarsour has also stated that if you are a Zionist, then you cannot be a feminist, which of course is false. There is no conflict between Zionism and feminism. Sarsour also demeaned and condemned one of the world's most courageous and outstanding feminists, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a former devout Muslim who has bravely spoken out radical Islam's role in legitimizing abhorrent practices such as genital mutilation, and who faced death threats for her advocacy. Sarsour disgustingly tweeted that Ayaan Hirsi Ali's "vagina should be taken away" and that she does not "deserve" to be a woman.
It is painful indeed to see these Jewish groups use their Jewish platforms to defend and work with Linda Sarsour, a sympathizer to violence against Jewish Israelis, and an unrepentant enemy of Israel and the Jewish people.

Calls to Destroy Israel From Within Hebrew University
Once again, calls to destroy the Jewish State and to expel the Jews from Israel were heard in Jerusalem's Hebrew University.
The inciting protest was filmed by IMTI activists - who quickly arrived at the scene but were barred by campus security from staging a counter demonstration - and was then sent to the media for the whole country to see.
After the protest, IMTI activists distributed pro-Israel advocacy material and waved Israeli flags throughout the campus. We will continue to be the leading voice against these disgraceful activities in Israeli academia.
Bar-Ilan U Succumbs to Anti-Zionist Political Correctness
Evidently, it is permissible to falsely accuse Israel of committing genocide and ethnically cleansing Palestinian Arabs in 1948, but it is prohibited to refute these outrageous lies.
In response to this absurd decision, IMTI activists proceeded to hand out hundreds of booklets outside the university grounds to students who were eager to learn the truth.
Talking Israel with Daniel Pipes
President and founder of the Middle East Forum, Daniel Pipes, sat down with Im Tirtzu Chairman Matan Peleg to discuss Zionism, the Middle East and the future of the Jewish state.
Click here to watch the full discussion.
Campus Activities, Events and More
IMTI's fifteen student branches continued to promote Zionism throughout Israeli campuses with dozens of pro-Israel activities.
In addition to the "regular" campus activities, next week IMTI's Ben-Gurion University branch will be hosting the first lecture of its Seminars for Zionist Thought featuring Israel Hayom editor-in-Chief Boaz Bismuth; the Tel-Aviv University branch is bringing General Uzi Dayan, MK Oded Forer and Mr. Yariv Oppenheimer for a special Israel Victory Project panel; and the Bar-Ilan University branch is organizing a student tour to Hebron.
Continuing the Fight Against BDS from Within
Preventing a Gov-Sponsored BDS Conference in Be'er Sheva
This week we approached the mayor of Be'er Sheva with the request to cancel a conference of the pro-BDS group "Coalition of Women for Peace," which was set to take place in a government-funded venue in Be'er Sheva and discuss tactics to boycott companies in Judea & Samaria.
Following the request, the mayor announced that he is ordering the cancellation of the event.
Countering Lawfare From Within
Adalah, a radical Israeli NGO backed by the New Israel Fund and foreign governments, submitted a petition to Israel's Supreme Court that would obligate Israel to return the five bodies of Islamic Jihadist terrorists who were killed when the IDF destroyed a terror tunnel earlier in the month.
In response, IMTI submitted a counter petition to the Supreme Court that would condition any return of such bodies on the return of the bodies of Hadar Goldin z'l and Oron Shaul z'l.
Adalah shortly after withdrew their petition due to technical reasons.
Removing Gov Funding from Anti-Zionist "Israel Social TV"
Following a letter sent by Im Tirtzu to Minister of Communications Ayoob Kara calling on the government to stop funding the anti-Israel organization "Israel Social TV," Minister Kara announced that he has freezed their funding.
"Israel Social TV" is an anti-Israel organization funded by the New Israel Fund and foreign governments that promotes the BDS movement, draft-dodging, accusations of apartheid and more.
Working to End Taxpayer Funding of Haaretz
Over the past several months IMTI has been pushing to remove the notorious anti-Israel newspaper Haaretz from the national advertising budget, which provides the paper with millions of shekels of taxpayer funds every year.
After numerous efforts, including a letter to the Culture Minister, the coalition chairman David Bitan announced that he is working on a plan that would significantly cut government funding of Haaretz.
Jerusalem Now & Forever in Montreal
Last week Im Tirtzu's Jerusalem Now & Forever photo exhibit was featured in Montreal's Kandy Gallery, one of the largest solo artist galleries in North America.
The exhibit features 50 stunning photos from the renowned photographer Sharon Gabay, and speaks volumes about the great things that a unified Jerusalem under Jewish sovereignty has brought: tolerance, co-existence, mutual respect and freedom of religion.
We don't have the backing of the New Israel Fund or European governments. But we have you.
