The rise of antisemitism fails to acknowledge Israel’s diversity

Israels Western Wall Flag

Sara A. Carter spoke with Liora Rez, director of StopAntisemitism.org, on “The Sara Carter Show” podcast Monday about the rise of antisemitism across the nation and how Israel has become the most accepting and diverse state in the Middle East. Carter and Rez have recently teamed up their nonprofit organizations in a campaign against hate and antisemitism in America.

Rez founded StopAntiSemitism.org to expose and monitor online antisemitism and other acts of Jew-hatred around the world. Carter founded The Dark Wire Investigation Foundation, to expose, cover and report on topics which are currently underserved, such as antisemitism.

In recent years, antisemitism has increased enormously in the US and around the world.

The FBI released a report showing that nearly 60% of the religious hate crimes in the United States in 2019, were against the Jewish people.

The Jewish community has been the victim of slander by the media, politicians and professors.

Minnesota State Rep. Ilhan Omar, was voted 2019’s antisemite of the year by StopAntiSemitism.org, for her antisemitic comments, her support of the antisemitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel and her allegations that Jews buy their influence with money, infamously stating “it’s all about the Benjamins.”

Omar is just one example of many people in positions of power degrading the Jewish people and the state of Israel.

“They paint Israel as this white colonizing evil monster,” Rez said. “They never mention that Israel’s population is 55% Sephardic Jews, which are people of black and brown colors, something the social justice movement in America literally advocates for. They never say anything about the LGBTQ safe haven that’s in Israel. They never mention any of it. We are the white colonizing force that rules America. It sounds so ridiculous to me, because I know what a lie it is, but there are so many people, these young, impressionable students that are buying it off.”

In the Middle East, countries such as Saudi Arabia, Iran and other Islamic entities have little to no gender equality, gay rights or women’s rights.

“In Saudi Arabia, I believe it’s still punishable by death, along with many other Muslim counties,” Rez said on the topic of gay rights. “There is no gender equality in any of these in a lot of these Muslim countries.”

Israel, for decades, has been a safe haven for the LGBTQ+ community,

“When you look at a democracy, like Israel, and you look at its neighbors, you look at Iran, who a couple years, I believe, when Ahmadinejad was in power, he claimed they don’t even have gays,” Rez said.

Rez highlighted how Israel celebrates women in power and advocates for equality among men and women.

“Israel, where the woman’s role is not equal but elevated to that of a man’s in certain aspects of let’s say, political society, or in the home,” Rez said.

During a news briefing Monday, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has placed 8,500 troops on “heightened alert.” Kirby stated, “I want to reinforce that as of now, the decision has been made to put these units on higher alert and higher alert only. No decisions have been made to deploy forces form the United States at this time.”

Kirby is referring to a possible deployment of American military forces to Eastern Europe in order to aid our NATO allies as potential options against Russia’s threats to invade Ukraine. Conversations are underway with NATO countries that could receive American support, he added.

NBC News reports “NATO said Monday that it was sending sh9ps and fighter jets to Eastern Europe and that Washington ‘has also made clear that it is considering increasing its military presence in the eastern part of the Alliance.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Monday that President Biden plans to speak to European leaders including NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Polish President Andrzej Duda, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi by video conference.

Psaki said “we expect they will discuss diplomacy, deterrence and defense efforts” and there will “certainly” be discussion about sanctions. “We have been consulting with allies and deployments and refining plans for all scenarios” she added.

“We have always said we would reinforce our allies on the eastern flank and those conversations and discussions have certainly been part of what our national security officials have been discussing with their counterparts now for several weeks.”

NBC News reports that “among the options presented for the U.S. military in advance of an invasion were bomber fights over the region, ship visits into the Black Sea and the moving of troops and some equipment from other parts of Europe into Poland, Romania and other countries neighboring Ukraine.”
