I could say as much about a truly frightening phenomenon, left-wing anti-Semitism, but I'll leave the topic to others better qualified. I can say that when I first encountered it, at a PLO fundraising party in Marin County, I felt as if I had time-traveled to pre-war Berlin.
Lopez, a state coordinator for ANSWER, admitted there is a problem with anti-Semitism within his organization's ranks. But then he went on to call the supporters of Israel across the street "barbaric, racist" Zionist terrorists. -Joseph Abrams
However, it seems pretty clear to me that much of the left in Europe and America is becoming more anti-Semitic, or at least risks falling into the trap of anti-Semitism, sometimes quite thoughtlessly.
In the language it uses, in the ideas it promotes, in the way in which it talks about the modern world, including Israel, much of the Left has adopted a style of politics that has anti-Semitic undertones, and sometimes overtones. -Brendan O'Neill

British Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn was forced to admit he attended a ceremony in 2014 in Tunisia, where the terrorists involved in the massacre of 11 Israeli athletes during the 1972 summer Olympics were buried.
The Daily Mail posted pictures of Corbyn holding a wreath and standing next to the memorial for members of the Palestinian terrorist group Black September who carried out the massacre.
At first, Corbyn denied even attending the event. Now he claims that, despite holding a wreath, he "doesn't think" he was involved in laying it. He also says that he was there to remember the victims of an Israeli airstrike in 1985 on PLO headquarters in Tunisia. But the Daily Mail visited the cemetery and "discovered that the monument to the air strike victims is 15 yards from where Mr Corbyn is pictured – instead he was in front of a plaque that lies beside the graves of Black September members."

A D.C. lawmaker responded to a brief snowfall Friday by publishing a video in which he espoused a conspiracy theory that Jewish financiers control the weather.
D.C. Council member Trayon White Sr. (D-Ward 8) posted the video to his official Facebook page at 7:21 a.m. as snow flurries were hitting the nation’s capital...
“Man, it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man. Y’all better pay attention to this climate control, man, this climate manipulation,” he says. “And D.C. keep talking about, ‘We a resilient city.’ And that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful.”

In a racially charged interview, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright said that President Obama hasn't spoken to him since they parted ways last year, because "them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me." ...
"Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office," Wright said, according to Virginia's Daily Press.
"If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house!"

Bernie Sanders claimed recently that "over 10,0000 innocent" Palestinians were killed by Israelis during the summer 2014 Gaza War as the result of an "indiscriminate" military operation. These figures are much higher than those accepted by any side of the conflict... Once told that the number was high, the Vermont denator responded "I don't have it in my number ... but I think it's over 10,000. My understanding is that a whole lot of apartment houses were leveled," he went on.

The New York Times did an analysis of opponents of the nuclear deal today, taking a highlighter to the Jews even though more Jewish members than not back the president.
“Though more Jewish members of Congress support the deal than oppose it, the Democrats against the deal are more likely to be Jewish or represent Jewish constituencies,” the brief article states.
In a speech at the United Nations Wednesday, CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill appeared to call for violent resistance against Israel and for its elimination.
Justice requires "a free Palestine from the river to the sea," Hill said, borrowing the phrase from Islamists who often use the phrase "from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea" to call for the elimination of the Jewish state.

Diane Rehm: Senator, you have dual citizenship with Israel.
Bernie Sanders: Well, no I do not have dual citizenship with Israel. I’m an American. I don’t know where that question came from. I am an American citizen, and I have visited Israel on a couple of occasions. No, I’m an American citizen, period.
Rehm: I understand from a list we have gotten that you were on that list.
Rehm: Forgive me if that is—
Sanders: That’s some of the nonsense that goes on in the internet. But that is absolutely not true.
Rehm: Interesting. Are there members of Congress who do have dual citizenship or is that part of the fable?

The Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank closely aligned with the White House, is embroiled in a dispute with several major Jewish organizations over statements on Israel and charges that some center staffers have used anti-Semitic language to attack pro-Israel Americans.

The ugliness on the march is going viral. This month, a man trolled Zuccotti hoisting a sign that read, “Hitler’s Bankers.” He shouted, “Jews control Wall Street!” “Free speech! Free speech!” he yelled as someone feebly asked him to stop. “This isn’t Israel!” Another man has been seen frequently with a sign urging fellow protesters to “Google Wall Street Jews. Jewish Billionaires. Jews and the Fed. Reserve Bank.”
So it’s no surprise the American Nazi Party broke its rule against standing beside Communists. It urged members of the “pro-white” movement to join Occupy Wall Streeters’ fight against the common enemy: “Judeo-capitalist bankster.”

Several anti-Semitic incidents have been reported during "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrations in New York as Jews were blamed for the turmoil in America's financial markets. In addition, anti-Israel signs were raised against "Israel's occupation of Gaza". The "Emergency Committee for Israel" has published a hard-to-watch clip in which Jews are attacked and blamed for the financial crisis and assistance to Israel.

Among the hodgepodge of signs that have sprouted in Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan, one man in jeans and a baseball cap has been carrying placards that shout their suggestions: “Google: Jewish Billionaires” and “Google: Zionists control Wall St.”
Anti-Semitic, anti-Israeli venom is on the rise, and it is coming mostly from the left. Anti-Semitism on U.S. college campuses is a “serious problem,” concluded the 2006 U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. -Lawrence Solomon

“Blame the Jews.” That’s the message one Wall Street protester was trying to spread in Lower Manhattan to anyone that would listen.
A new video posted to YouTube shows the protester loudly and aggressively proclaiming “the Jews control Wall Street.” In the nearly 6-minute video, the man is seen standing in Zuccotti Park ranting against Israel and Jews while holding a sign reading “Hitler’s Bankers – Wall St.”

October 26, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- As Occupy Wall Street nears the six-week mark, a vein of anti-Semitism flowing through the movement has reached Chicago. Jewish leaders say they are concerned. This is the ugly underbelly of Occupy Wall Street: Recycled anti-Jewish prejudices from small but vocal segments of the movement whose hatred on the picket lines is being magnified on the Internet.
From the man who gave us Keynesian Economics...
[Jews] have in them deep-rooted instincts that are antagonistic and therefore repulsive to the European, and their presence among us is a living example of the insurmountable difficulties that exist in merging race characteristics, in making cats love dogs …
It is not agreeable to see civilization so under the ugly thumbs of its impure Jews who have all the money and the power and brains.

In a message posted Thursday on its official website, organization head Rocky Suhayda said members of the “pro-white” movement should join and support the Occupy demonstrators because they share a common enemy: The “judeo-capitalist banksters.”
Suhayda said though many “racialists” are concerned about the demonstrations because the “many protesters are non-white and/or ‘communists,’” that shouldn’t matter because they are all against the same “evil, corrupted, degenerate capitalist elitists.”
