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.

U.S. Commerce Department: Chinese firms are supplying Russian entities

On Tuesday, the United States Commerce Department said several companies in China are supplying Russia’s military. The announcement was made alongside a “new round of blacklist restrictions for foreign firms aiding Moscow’s war against Ukraine” reports National Review.

“These entities have previously supplied items to Russian entities of concern before February 24, 2022 and continue to contract to supply Russian entity listed and sanctioned parties after Russia’s further invasion of Ukraine,” stated an official Commerce Department notice posted to the Federal Register.

“Commerce also blacklisted several Chinese companies and Chinese government research institutes for their work on naval-technology and supplying Iran with U.S. tech in a way that harms America’s national security” adds National Review.

Six companies that are helping further the Russian invasion are also based in Lithuania, Russia, the U.K., Uzbekistan, and Vietnam.

National Review reports:

The Commerce Department stopped short of blaming the Chinese government for the sanctions-evasion activity it identified today. Commerce secretary Gina Raimondo previously said that there doesn’t appear to be any “systemic efforts by China to go around our export controls.” The Biden administration has publicly and privately warned Beijing against supporting the Russian war, with White House officials even leaking to the press about an effort to present China’s ambassador in Washington with information about Russian troop movements ahead of the invasion.

While Beijing has not expressed outright support for the invasion, it has used its propaganda networks to back Moscow’s narrative. Meanwhile, top Chinese and Russian officials have moved to solidify the “no-limits” partnership they declared in early February. General secretary Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin held a call this month, marking the construction of a new bridge between their two countries, during which they reiterated their support for the burgeoning geopolitical alignment.

National-security adviser Jake Sullivan said last month that the U.S. has no indications that Beijing has provided Russia with military equipment. A Finnish think tank, the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air, estimated on June 12 that Chinese imports of Russian oil since the outset of the conflict have amounted to $13 billion, making China the biggest consumer of the country’s oil exports. Previously, it was Germany. “While Germany cut back on purchases since the start of the war, China’s oil and gas imports from Russia rose in February and remained at a roughly constant level since,” the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission noted.

Official advisor Anton Gerashchenko tweeted incredible video of Ukrainian soldiers sweeping through fields, writing “this is how our fields are de-mined so that farmers can harvest crops.”  On Monday a Russian missile struck a mall in Kremenchuk, Ukraine, where over 1,000 civilians were inside.

“Almost two dozen people were still missing Tuesday one day after a Russian airstrike struck a Ukrainian shopping mall and killed 18 civilians inside…On top of the 18 dead and 21 people missing, Ukrainian Interior Minster Denis Monastyrsky said 59 were injured. Several of the dead were burned beyond recognition” reported the New York Post.
