Hausman: Mainstream Jews Ignore Antisemitism on the Left

Occupy Wall Street Protest Poster
Source: The Blaze

Today is May Day,  a traditional Labor Socialist  and Communist  propaganda global event. Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movements around the globe are marching in alliance protesting against  the economic elite, the 1% whom these leftist anarchist rail against controling the government, media and the economy demanding reparations, jobs and income equality. Unfortunately, the OWS and the leftist allies have also propounded antisemitism in the guise of resurrecting the hoary Czarist forgery, the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. The libelous antisemitic Protocols were insinuated in Hitler's Mein Kampf about to be re-published in Germany, published by Henry Ford in The Dearborn Independent, utlized in the agitprop of Leninist-Trotskyite-Stalinist Communism and in the Jew hatred Islamic  doctrine of Muslim Brotherhood ideologues like Yusuf al-Qaradawi. The OWS movement has been accused of being coopted by anti-Israel groups like Code Pink, involved with organizing the Free Gaza Flotillas and  the International Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement of pro-Palestinian actvists involved with the recent failed  Global March to Jerusalem and Flytilla protest events. Mathew Hausman in a recent Israpundit article, "Mainstream Jews Ignore Antisemitism on the Left", raises the seeming indifference of Jewish media and leaders about the OWS movement's resurrection of this recurring antisemitic libel. 

In his article he notes:

Jewish establishment organizations have been reluctant to criticize the movement for creating an environment in which “progressive” antisemites seem welcome and comfortable. Given their visibility at OWS protests, it is difficult to accept the facile explanation that the movement has no anti-Jewish bias, but that it simply cannot control all of its supporters’ conduct. The sophistry in such reasoning is exposed by the growing presence in the Occupy camp of groups such as the radical Islamic Circle of North America (“ICNA”) and the Muslim-American Society, which is related to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Read this extensive analysis by Hausman and reflect on why liberal Jews have given a pass to the perpetuation of antisemitic libel by  the OWS movement and their Muslim Brotherhood allies in the West .

Mainstream Jews Ignore Antisemitism on the Left
by Matthew Hausman

How many times must the political left slander Israel and malign Jewish values before American Jews finally admit that it is fundamentally antisemitic? Evidence of Jew-hatred on the left abounds, and yet liberals often deny its existence or, worse, rationalize it as a response to Jewish particularism. Then there are those Jews who peddle hateful anti-Israel rhetoric themselves and who serve to shield their radical compatriots from accusations of bigotry. Progressive extremists disparage Israel in the vilest terms and support Islamists who preach genocide, but deny charges of antisemitism by pointing to leftist Jews who do the same. How can they be antisemitic, they ask, when even some Jews denigrate Israel and support the Palestinians? Unfortunately, many liberals fail to see the nuanced disingenuity of the question and, thereby, excuse radical hatred through ignorance or naiveté. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the trivialization of reported antisemitism within Occupy Wall Street (“OWS”).

The movement since its beginning has attracted left-wing activists, some of whom accuse Jews of controlling American foreign policy, dominating the world economy, and enforcing apartheid in Israel. Supporters in public parks and on college campuses promote boycott, divestment and sanctions (“BDS”) initiatives, which are inherently antisemitic, and attribute to the mythologized “Jewish Lobby” a nefarious agenda lifted straight from the fraudulent “Protocols of the Elders of Zion.”

There is photographic evidence aplenty of signs bearing slogans like, “Occupy Wall Street not Palestine,” (, “Google Zionists: Control Wall Street,” (, and “Nazi Bankers Wall Street,” (, from New York’s Zuccotti Park; or “Humanity vs. the Rothschilds” and “It’s Yom Kippur, Banks should Atone!” from Occupy LA ( Likewise, there are many videos of protestors engaging in hate speech, including those at Occupy LA railing against “masonic and Jewish bankers” and accusing “Zionists and Jews” of controlling the Federal Reserve (; those at Occupy D.C. proclaiming that “criminal Zionists” and “Jews with Israeli citizenship” run the U.S. government (; and those in Zuccotti Park claiming that Barack Obama is “in the pocket” of Israel and the Jews. (This latter accusation – laughable given the president’s disgraceful treatment of Israel since his first days in office – shows the delusional depths of radical Jew-hatred.)
