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.

Venezuela is pushing around the Biden administration by halting flights of migrants being repatriated from the U.S. and Mexico. According to U.S. officials, Venezuela’s communist President Nicolas Maduro is breaking a deal with the United States, which was a “key instrument for the Biden administration to halt illegal migration from the communist South American country” reports ADN America.

Reportedly the “halt in flights came as part of a Venezuelan measure after the White House reinstated some economic sanctions it had lifted against its oil and gas industry as part of a gesture to move the country toward democratic elections.”

Washington has since accused Caracas of following through with its promises to ease pressure and intimidation tactics against opposition candidates, such as the country’s prized Unity candidate, Maria Corina Machado, ADN America adds.

“Corina Machado obtained an impressive 72% level of support, marking a milestone as the candidate with greatest support in the history of the country before elections.” ADN has published several reports outlining the crack downs, kidnappings of opposition candidate campaign workers and intimidation tactics.

In addition to breaking its promises to observe democratic principles for free and fair elections, Venezuela has also asserted a claim it has a right to invade its oil rich neighbor, Guyana, sparking further concerns within the Pentagon and State Department.

According to U.S. officials who spoke to The Wall Street Journal, chances of reigniting the agreement are slim and relations between both sides continue to slip into a dark chasm. “Increased deportations and containing the surge of migrants from Venezuela, the third-largest nationality after Mexico and Guatemala, could have helped ease some of the pressure on Biden, whose poll ratings have been sliding ahead of November’s presidential election, partly because of the immigration issue,” the Journal reported.

The U.S. has so far repatriated about 1,800 Venezuelans on 15 flights since the October agreement was brokered, a sliver of the migrants who have penetrated the southwest border during the Biden era.
