Discrimination against Jews and Muslims is on the rise around the world, according to an annual US Department of State report.

The findings for 2012 spoke of an increase in anti-Islamic sentiment in Europe and Asia.

It also said there was growing anti-Semitism, especially in Venezuela, Egypt and Iran.

As he unveiled the report, US Secretary of State John Kerry appointed a new special envoy on anti-Semitism.

Ira Foreman was named to replace Michael Kozak in the role, which was first created in 2004.

Mr Foreman was in charge of appealing to Jewish voters on behalf of President Barack Obama ahead of last November’s election.

The International Religious Freedom Report, released on Monday, noted that in Egypt, anti-Semitic sentiment in the media sometimes included Holocaust denial or glorification.

It also mentioned an incident on 19 October when Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi said “amen” to a religious leader’s call upon Allah to “destroy the Jews and their supporters”.

  1. The main cause of the rise of hatred of Jews in Europe is the presence of a large number of Muslims.

    The astonishing that is that Jews have been the most active proponents of large scale immigration into the West. It is as if they wish to destroy Christian countries using Islam as an instrument.

  2. Not surprising that Jews would support immigration and multiculturalism in the West, particularly Europe. European have killed them en mass countless times over the centuries, and the last time WW2 was a massive killing. They probably figured they would be safer living in a more racially and religiously diverse Europe where they would be one of many minorities and not one that stood out more than others. They probably thought another Holocaust is less likely in a multicultural Europe. Or so they thought they’d be safe. They would have been right with any other immigrant group into Europe except Muslims.They probably did not realize that Muslims would target them just as much. The Jews ended up inviting into the West another more vicious group into Europe that also persecutes them. However Muslims as minorities too in Europe is more protected and their behavior excused so the Jews have even less recourse. Europe may end up being Judenrein thanks to Muslims in Europe driving them away.

    That is what the late Laurence Auster wrote as well. However, if ever is a group of people who should know about Islam, is is the Jews. They felt the full blown Jihad and dhimmitude from Mohammed himself. So there is no excuse for Jews.

    That is underway in Sweden and France. Not in Germany though, for obvious reasons.

  4. Perhaps the Jews thought Muslims as another minority would not be harmful. Muslims as a majority as in the Middle East are clearly not good for Jews. They may have thought the European Christian majority would be neutralized to violence by a lots of racially diverse and religiously diverse immigrant groups, and Muslims neutralized to violence as just another minority under the non-Muslim majority Europe. They may not have counted on how the Muslim population does not have to be in the majority to persecute them, or that Muslims would be protected and catered to by the non-Muslim European majority as a minority even more than to Jews.

  5. They could not have known ahead of time that with an increasing Muslim population in Europe strongly against Israel, that Jews would be portrayed as villains no better than Nazis by Muslims in Europe and that Europeans would join Muslims in being against Israel and by default (though not admitted) Jews in general. Israel bashing is a safe non-obvious venue for anti-semitism. When Jews are portrayed as no better than Nazis vis a vis Arabs, then Europeans don’t stand out as particularly unusual holocaust inducing villains. After all the Jews should know better as victims of Nazis to not behave like Nazis. Jews are in a way no longer only a victim of European prejudice. They are portrayed no longer only as victim but also perpetrator, and one that ought to know better. Muslim minority in Europe trumps all other possible minorities.

  6. The politically correct will continue to ignore the close relationship of the increased Islamic jihad and the increase in antisemitism and anti Moslem activities. This willful blindness is going to cost a lot of people their lives in the near future and possible cause several nations to disappear.

    I wish I could count the number of times people have posted this one moment by this one Marxist psycho bitch.

    The problem with her is not that she is Jewish. Its that she is a commie. And she represents Jewish people and Jewish thought about as much as Norman Finklestien.

    This one video has fueled a stunning amount of justification for antisemitism by people who want to blame the current islamic jihad on Jews instead of on leftists where it belongs.

    Try reading Bat Ye’or, another Jewish woman who write the damn book on Eurabia and was the first and loudest voice warning about the consequences of islamic immigration to liberal states. She is far far more representative of contemporary Jewish thought than this total Frankfurt school psycho above.
