Working Definition of Antisemitism

“The purpose of this document is to provide a practical guide for identifying incidents, collecting data, and supporting the implementation and enforcement of legislation dealing with antisemitism.”

Working definition: “Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”

In addition, such manifestations could also target the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity. Antisemitism frequently charges Jews with conspiring to harm humanity, and it is often used to blame Jews for “why things go wrong.” It is expressed in speech, writing, visual forms and action, and employs sinister stereotypes and negative character traits.

Contemporary examples of antisemitism in public life, the media, schools, the workplace, and in the religious sphere could, taking into account the overall context, include, but are not limited to:

Calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews in the name of a radical ideology or an extremist view of religion.

Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective — such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.

Accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, or even for acts committed by non-Jews.

Denying the fact, scope, mechanisms (e.g. gas chambers) or intentionality of the genocide of the Jewish people at the hands of National Socialist Germany and its supporters and accomplices during World War II (the Holocaust).

Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.

Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.

Examples of the ways in which antisemitism manifests itself with regard to the State of Israel taking into account the overall context could include:

Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor.

Applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.

Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.

Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.

Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel.

However, criticism of Israel similar to that leveled against any other country cannot be regarded as antisemitic.

Antisemitic acts are criminal when they are so defined by law (for example, denial of the Holocaust or distribution of antisemitic materials in some countries).

Criminal acts are antisemitic when the targets of attacks, whether they are people or property—such as buildings, schools, places of worship and cemeteries—are selected because they are, or are perceived to be, Jewish or linked to Jews.

Antisemitic discrimination is the denial to Jews of opportunities or services available to others and is illegal in many countries.

"the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions."

that they controlling the media is exactly what is prooven! It is far from being a myth! Next to this, who controls the media controls almost anything else.

Ofcourse it is absolutely crazy (and discrimination against non-jews) that this kind of "rules" are made by a organisation like the EU!

Why this special status for this group of people?

"Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor."

So what about denying the right for self-determination for the Europian nations?

As we could read a week ago: "UN migration chief Peter Sutherland said that the EU should "do its best to undermine" the "homogeneity" of its member states. He also added that the prosperity of many EU states depended on them becoming multicultural."

But if we want to preserve our nations, culture, we are called racist, nazi's ect. No our homogeneity officially has to be undermined.

In the real world they call such actions genocide! So why those dubble standerts?

Posts of this nature (multiculturalism - multi-racialism, gay agenda, equality, institutional "dictates", UN, institutional sanctions, state paternalism) should be tagged under the category "Humor". No right-thinking person believes this clap-trap Marxist social engineering from Marxist talking-heads and institutions. Democracy is bottom-up, not top-down. Our ancestors would laugh themselves silly hearing this rubbish coming from the top ! It merely confirms the opposite of what they are saying and what most people already know - who is really in-charge. But is is good to post this perverse Soviet-style comic humor !

The globalist institutions are quickly bringing themselves into disrepute with initiatives far removed from reality and the "electorate". European society is composed of family, friends, community, culture, heritage and tradition - "institutions" are like corporations - artificial constructs imposed on society for their own benefit.

The best thing to do is laugh at the artificial globalist Marxist humor and institutions trying to impose their paternalistic (fictional) will on Europeans through the media - they have outlived their usefulness and are no longer relevant. Europeans needs to vote "with their feet" away from these institutions (fools) that don't represent them and vote their support for their regional community. The sooner people understand and reject the paternalistic (psychological) social-engineering joke, the sooner it will be over.
