Arab book fairs give us a unique insight into the obsessive-compulsive nature of anti-Semitism.

This is particularly the case for the Saudi and Gulf State fairs of the past weeks, as these governments find themselves in a tactical “engagement” with Israel against the common threats from Iranian nuclear designs, Tehran-sponsored Shi’ite mayhem, and Sunni radicals.

Argentine Foreign Minister,Hector Timerman, has demonstrably and “irrevocably” excommunicated himself from the AMIA – Argentina’s premiere Jewish welfare, education and burial society – demolished by an Iranian Jihadist bomb in 1994, leaving 85 dead and 300 wounded.

By this personal act, he has rejected his Jewish education values and destiny – among them burial in a Jewish cemetery – and has, apparently, abandoned the Argentine victims of this Tehran-sponsored aggression.

By publicly announcing this action and reportedly charging the AMIA with obstructing Argentine national interests – in other words treason – it could be argued that he has exposed Argentina, once again, to grave threats from reactivated Iran-sponsored Hezbollah sleeper cells on Argentine soil, as were identified by the commonly presumed slain AMIA Prosecutor, Alberto Nisman.

Timerman has now invidiously compared himself with the Zionist champion and visionary, Theodor Herzl.

Herzl sacrificed himself in defence of the Jewish people and is buried among them in Jerusalem.

 : « Nuremberg Betrayed: ISIS and the International Criminal Court »

Coïncidant avec cette 70e Journée de la Shoah (Yom HaShoah), la déclaration de Fatou Bensouda, procureure de la Cour pénale internationale (CPI) – « … Je suis parvenue à la conclusion que la base juridictionnelle pour ouvrir une procédure préliminaire dans cette situation [les crimes du groupe État islamique] est trop étroite à ce stade » – est une trahison de l'ambition première de la CPI : perpétuer l'exemple historique du tribunal de Nuremberg en 1945-46.

Cette cour avait condamné le parti national-socialiste dans son ensemble en tant qu'organisation terroriste, et ce jugement avait servi de base à la politique de dénazification que les Alliées occidentaux allaient adopter, bien que cette décision ait ensuite été abandonnée avec le début de la guerre froide.

Iceland is more than its tourist posters of geysers, volcanoes, the singer Bjork and the Northern Lights. It has now stretched antisemitism to new outer limits, rendering it almost a psychiatric disorder.

An Icelandic “artist”, Snorri Asmundsson, has posted a YouTube clip to the background of Israel’s natural anthem, HaTikva (The Hope), featuring a woman in a burqa pulled out of the frame by a man wearing a star of David armband, transvestites lampooning Israel’s Eurovision contest singer, Dana International, and two Down’s Syndrome young men dressed as orthodox Jewish Hassidim [HATIKVA by SNORRI ASMUNDSSON]
