Motivated by what they described as rising anti-Semitism in Europe, members of a Congressional bipartisan task force introduced legislation Friday that aims to increase Washington’s monitoring of anti-Jewish incidents and the steps taken by European governments to combat them. 
While much of the nation’s focus was trained on Hurricane Matthew smashing into the southeastern seaboard, Democratic representatives Nita Lowey, Steve Israel, Eliot Engel and Ted Deutch joined Republicans Chris Smith, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Kay Granger and Peter Roskam — all co-chairs of the House of Representatives Bipartisan Taskforce for Combating Anti-Semitism — in introducing the Combating European Anti-Semitism Act of 2016. 
... “It’s shocking that in the 21st century, anti-Semitism is gaining strength across Europe. From taunts and threats on the street; to violent attacks in schools and synagogues; to governments amplifying anti-Semitic voices and messages, such as leaders in Hungary giving a prestigious State award to anti-Semitic writer Zsolt Bayer, many European Jews are being forced to reconsider whether there is still a future for them in their countries,” the bill’s sponsors wrote in a statement Friday. 
“This is unacceptable, and we will continue to call on leaders across Europe to speak out against this growing problem, strengthen partnerships with Jewish communities to help them develop safety standards, and foster cultures that respect diversity and inclusion of all minority groups, including Jews.” 
The bill will amend the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 to include a new paragraph discussing anti-Semitism in Europe, adding mandatory reporting on “the security challenges and needs of European Jewish communities and European law enforcement agencies” in countries in which “verbal or physical threats or attacks are particularly significant against Jewish persons, places of worship, schools, cemeteries, and other religious institutions.” 
It also encourages the US to “partner with European law enforcement agencies and civil society groups regarding the sharing of information and best practices to combat anti-Semitic incidents in Europe,” and to encourage European governments to pursue educational initiatives to combat anti-Jewish sentiment and adopt a working definition of anti-Semitism. 
“Effectively confronting this problem requires a better understanding of its scope and depth. This bill would require the Administration to continue taking a hard look at anti-Semitism in Europe, providing a thorough assessment of trends and outlining what the United States and our partners are doing to meet this challenge,” they wrote. 
“That way, we’ll have the best information available as we work to root out this pernicious threat and ensure that the commitment ‘never again’ remains a reality.” 
In the bill, legislators noted that “during the past decade, there has been a steady increase in anti-Semitic incidents in Europe, resulting in European Jews being the targets of physical and verbal harassment and even lethal terrorist attacks, all of which has eroded personal and communal security and the quality of daily Jewish life.” 
It cites statistics gathered by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights between 2005 and 2014 documenting an increase of anti-Semitic incidents in France from 508 to 851; in Germany from 60 to 173; in Belgium from 58 to 130; in Italy from 49 to 86; and in the United Kingdom from 459 to 1,168. 
The legislation also noted a linkage between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism, complaining that the former “has at times devolved into anti-Semitic attacks, prompting condemnation from many European leaders.” 
The bill contains a “sense of Congress” section that states that “it is in the national interest of the United States to combat anti-Semitism at home and abroad,” and that “anti-Semitism is a challenge to the basic principles of tolerance, pluralism, and democracy, and the shared values that bind Americans and Europeans together.” 
The representatives emphasized what they described as “an urgent need to ensure the safety and security of European Jewish communities, including synagogues, schools, cemeteries, and other institutions.” They called on both the US and international organizations to continue to document and speak out against anti-Semitic incidents.

Imagine that European countries passed legislation to monitor "racism" in America. How bizarre would that be?

  2. "adopt a working definition of anti-semitism": that is what the Jewish Bolsheviks did once they took power in their coup over the Mensheviks and became the leaders of the former Russia (85% of the leadership of the Soviet Bolshevik government was Jewish, 67% of its terrorist/enforcement arm, NKVD, was Jewish), also, they restricted ownership of weapons, thus leaving the majority of Russians (who are Orthodox Christians) at the mercy of the Jews who carried out deliberate destruction of Christian churches and murders of thousand of Russian clergy throughout Russia, the slaughter of millions of citizens and the enforced starvation of other millions also in Ukraine (Holodomor, approx 10-12 milions dead). The push for restrictions, and eventual eradication of the Second Amendment in the US (right to bear arms) repeats the pattern of the Jewish Bolsheviks in Russia and, the 'black lives matter' (BLM Movement) is a sign that blacks and possibly latinos will be used as shock troops against whites when they are disarmed, as it is now against US police forces. In Europe, there is already massive legislation on several levels to silence discussion of Judaism (which is the real threat to the Jews, not this false issue of 'verbal/personal/synagogue attacks' (in the case of these, the supposed 'insult' or 'anti-semitism' is, of course, dependent on the view of the {jewish} 'victim' and, as with 'islamophobia', a matter of supposition or deliberate deceit on the part of the false victim. In the US, the US Congress has approximately 80% of its representatives/senators self-identifying as "friends of Israel"; I believe this is very similar to the situation in the British House of Commons.

  3. 'anti-semitism' in Jewish Bolshevik Soviet Union was a crime which carried the death sentence. Since jews are always saying all their attempts to silence free speech are about preventing 'never again', it stands to reason that since they portray that 'never again' scenario as involving the attempt to genocide them, then a death sentence for 'anti-semitism' is likely what they are aiming at. Any psychopath can see the logic of it...

  4. Eso se llama espiar, está prohibido en tiempos de paz, pero lo han estado haciendo desde hace décadas, es entonces que estamos y hemos estado en guerra desde el final de la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

    La gente no sabe que los dispositivos vienen de fábrica preparados para que te puedan espiar los gobiernos sionistas, al igual que muchas marcas o firmas de teléfonos móviles.

    La palabra ¨semita ¨ no es judía, se han apoderado del término, procede de Sem, personaje bíblico, por lo que los cristianos también son semitas, y otras etnias en la zona histórica, donde hay referencias.

    Los gobiernos sionistas ya no tienen credibilidad. Hace unos días la empresa Yahoo ( meta-buscador ) reconoció que los e-mails de sus clientes han sido espíados por los gobiernos ( sionistas ). Puedes elegir un meta-buscador o un combo, p. ej. ( 8.18.216.151 ). Hay también opciones de privacidad al navegar ( cuidado con Duck Duck Go, hay muchos ¨bichitos ¨ y archivos host de Red de enlaces anarquistas y comunistas ), pero entonces los gobiernos sionistas acuden y presionan a las ISP´s. Hay meta-buscadores que no necesitan directa subrogación de búsquedas, y mantiene la privacidad, su sede está en Holanda.., pero tiene paquetes de red a EUA ( USA ) : https://www.ixquick.com/

    Nos reímos ( de forma suave ) de tanta ignorancia y manipulación del lenguaje. Sí. Pero la mente no pueden controlarla, ni el alma.

    Saludos Diversity, buena labor informativa. Fenomenal. )
