Israel Today

Jewish survivors of the Buchenwald Nazi concentration camp, some still in their camp clothing, stand on the deck of the refugee immigration ship Mataroa, on July 15, 1945 at Haifa port, during the British Mandate of Palestine, in what would later become the State of Israel. During World War II, millions of Jews were fleeing Germany and its occupied territories, many attempting to enter the British Mandate of Palestine, despite tight restrictions on Jewish immigration established by the British in 1939. Many of these would-be immigrants were caught and rounded up into detention camps. In 1947, Britain announced plans to withdraw from the territory, and the United Nations approved the Partition Plan for Palestine, establishing a Jewish and a Palestinian state in the country. On May 14, 1948, Israel declared independence and was immediately attacked by neighboring Arab states, beginning the Arab-Israeli conflict which continues to this day.

Update on Deeply Concerning Situation in Israel

Double Standards for Israel By Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld

A current statement like the following makes Gloria Greenfield’s new documentary, “Unmasked: Judeophobia,” all the more relevant and critically timed..

Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said, Israel was a “cancerous tumor that should be cut and will be cut,” (Arutz Sheva, 2/3/12)

We are immensely grateful to Gloria and all those who shared their thoughts on the worldwide troubling indicators and challenges before us. The deep truths her film reveals are frightening, cautionary and hopeful because we can be empowered today, to respond in ways our Jewish ancestors never imagined possible. In the 21st century, we can shift from waffling, psychic numbness and willful blindness to activism. We can fight for our rights not to be victimized or assaulted verbally, physically and emotionally. Individually and collectively, we can be a powerful force against anti-Semitism and work effectively to slow it down or block it.

Those who seek and plan to harm Israel and thereby Jews around the world, should know we refuse to accept their latest false projections, insulting incriminations and scapegoating and we do it all in memory of those who survived and those who lost their lives in the “first” Holocaust.
