GIULIANI URGES ANTI-SEMITISM FIGHT
Says Old "Burden" Holds Europe Back
Vienna--Anti-Semitism is a scourge of Europe
in the same hate that led
to the September 11 attacks, former New York
Rudolph Giuliani told an
international gathering Thursday.
Giuliani spoke as chief U.S. delegate to a
conference aimed at
fighting anti-Semitism around the world. As he
spoke, he noted the short
distance to the Vienna square where adoring
mobbed Adolf Hitler as
he celebrated Nazi Germany's 1938 annexation of

millions of people would have
Anti-Semitism, he said, is "a burden that has
Europe back for two
millenia" and is generated by the same hate
to the attacks by Islamic
terrorists on Washington and New York.
Later, in a conference call with reporters,
Giuliani, who was mayor during the
September 11 attacks, said Europe and the
States are working together
to reduce attacks against Jews in a way that
heal the divisions over
the U.S.-led war in
"There is a common interest...to work
More than 350 delegates from Europe, central
the United States, Russia
and Canada are attending the two-day
which comes amid an increase
in anti-Semitic acts, especially in Europe.
Giuliani said U.S. goals at the conference
agreeing on a uniform
way to gather hate crime statistics and
all members of the
Organization for Security and Cooperation in
which is hosting the
gathering, to adopt hate-crime legislation.
U.S. officials also hope to persuade the OSCE
meet annually to discuss
anti-Jewish prejudice and for all its members
create educational programs
about the issue.
A decision isn't likely, however, before a
of foreign ministers of
the organization's member countries, scheduled
later this year.
"Words aren't going to suffice to turn the tide

once again growing in Europe and other parts of
world," the former mayor
The Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles said
month that attacks
against Jews in Europe have reached the highest
level since World War II.
Since 2001, the center has documented 1300
anti-Semitic acts in France,
including the burning of a Marseille synagogue
the stabbing of a rabbi
in Paris. In Britain, records show 1,308
between 1998 and 2001.
The New York-based Lawyer's Committee for Human
Rights in 2002 criticized
European governments for laxness in monitoring,
publicizing and acting on
reports of anti-Semitic violence. Also last
the U.S. House of
Representatives approved a resolution urging
European governments to take
action against increased attacks on Jews.
Avraham Toledo, Israel's chief delegate to the
Vienna meeting, said
governments should be alert for acts of
anti-Semitism committed under the
guise of opposition to Israel's Palestinian
"To justify anti-Semitic phenomena by
them as anti-Zionism is
the same ugly ideology with fresh makeup," he
I found the following passages particularly
"Giuliani said U.S. goals at the conference
agreeing on a uniform way to gather hate crime
statistics and persuading all members of the
Organization for Security and Cooperation in
which is hosting the gathering, to adopt
Since the Zionists insist that hating Israel is
"anti-Semitism" and since nobody there thinks
Arabs is "anti-Semitism" we are clearly looking
"hate-crime legislation" which will amount to
anti-"Israeli" activity as an anti-Semitic hate
- that is to say we are looking at repressive
legislation to ban even verbal support for the
liberation struggles on the grounds that such
struggles are "anti-Semitic".
Giuliani even said that the 11 September 2001
grew out of "anti-Semitism". (I suppose because
Islamic guerrillas resented the Jewish
occupation of Palestine and such resentment
his eyes to an "anti-Semitic hate crime". The
occupation of Palestine, their butchery and
of its native Semitic population is only some
footnote to history.)
Admittedly, the hijackers probably expected to
out a large number of Jews simply by hitting any
target in New York City, but had they been aiming
Jews specifically, they might have assaulted
in occupied Palestine. Clearly they were aiming
nerve centers of the American polity and American
capitalism and if Jews predominate there, well,
it's a matter of "if the shoe fits, you wear it."
Then there was this:
"U.S. officials also hope to persuade the OSCE to

Today there are hundreds of Arabs and Muslims
imprisoned in Guantanamo and in various dungeons
around the US. Islamic groups throughout Europe

western neocolonialism sucks their countries'
economies dry. Meanwhile, Jews are represented
beyond their percentage of the population in the
executive offices of the biggest global empire,
and entertainment world, heavily
influencing the thinking of the whole world.
In just this situation the US insists that there
be an annual meeting focused on anti-Jewish
and on the need for "educational programs about
issue." That's a very interesting perspective!
Then there was this interesting passage:
"Later, in a conference call with reporters,
who was mayor during the September 11 attacks,

Now, since the USA is still brutally occupying
presume that "healing the divisions over the
war in Iraq" means to bring the Europeans over to
supporting the American occupation. And this, we
told, is being done by way of "Europe and the
States working together to reduce attacks against
Jews." So evidently they are trying to unite on
basis of political Judaism, i.e., Zionism. Does
mean that the Zionist Jews and their gentile
supporters are trying to pull the Europeans up
the United States? It would appear so.
Then isn't there room to talk about a "Jewish
conspiracy" on a world scale, not only with
bringing Jews to occupied Palestine but a
