October 2003: THE NEW ANTI-SEMITISM
"This is the scariest time for Jews since the Holocaust," warns talk-show host and national columnist Dennis Prager in the spine-tingling October issue of Whistleblower, titled "THE NEW ANTI-SEMITISM."
Indeed, ever since the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks ÌÎ_Ì´åÌ´å blamed by many in the Arab world on Jews, even though all 19 hijackers were Arab Muslims ÌÎ_Ì´åÌ´å a virulent strain of anti-Semitism has been spreading wildly, not only throughout the Muslim-Arab Mideast, but in Europe and even in America:
- Major newspapers throughout the Middle East and elsewhere routinely publish stories claiming "the Jews" torture and kill children to harvest their blood for use in holiday pastries.
- Palestinian children are taught, virtually from birth, to hate "the Jews" and to look forward to blowing themselves up while killing as many Jews as possible.
- Police in Germany recently busted large numbers of neo-Nazis who planned to bomb a Jewish worship place Nov. 9, to "commemorate" the 65th anniversary of one of the most stunning examples of anti-Semitism in the 20th century: Kristallnacht. (During that infamous night in November 1938, rampaging mobs throughout Germany, Austria and Sudetenland savagely attacked Jews in the street, in their homes, at their workplaces and in their synagogues, killing at least 96 Jews, injuring hundreds more, burning between 1,000 and 2,000 synagogues, destroying almost 7,500 Jewish businesses, and vandalizing cemeteries and schools.)
- So-called Christians on the "radical-right" fringe condemn "the Jews" for supposedly killing Jesus Christ, pretending to be God's chosen, corrupting the government, news media, entertainment and banking industries ÌÎ_Ì´åÌ´å and in general, for attempting to rule the world.
- Liberals and leftists, traditional champions of the underdog, engage en masse in a form of fashionable, politically correct anti-Semitism by condemning Israel's "racist," "apartheid," "Nazi" regime, portraying the tiny Jewish state (with 0.1 percent of the Mideast land mass) as the brutal aggressor Goliath, while casting the Arab world (with 99.9 percent of the land, and all of the oil) as David.
- Open anti-Semitism is increasingly common and blatant on America's college campuses, as at the University of Chicago when recently a car drove up to a Jewish student and a passenger screamed: "Death to Jews. Hitler should have finished you all off when he had the chance," and fliers posted in a dorm to publicize a pro-Israel rally were defaced with obscenities and vile, anti-Semitic suggestions.
"This issue of Whistleblower is simply the most powerful journalistic probe yet of the current worldwide explosion of anti-Semitism," said WND and Whistleblower founder and Editor Joseph Farah.
In this eye-popping special issue, WorldNetDaily's editors team up with some of the world's most articulate experts on this subject to document the recent stunning increase in anti-Semitism throughout the world.

Calling "THE NEW ANTI-SEMITISM" "one of the most important issues we've published yet," Farah added, "I also truly believe we get closer to laying out the core reasons for anti-Semitism, and revealing what the real cure is, than any other news organization has up till now."
