We reported on this story earlier however, we have obtained the exclusive audio of 50 Cent’s racist comments from the radio. In light of the complete media frenzy of the racist remarks by Don Imus, there seems to be a complete media blackout of 50 Cent’s racist comments.  Raising the question does 50 Cent get a ‘get out of racism free card’?  Certainly Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have not commented about this racist instance.

Anti-Jewish Rapper 50 Cent Labels “Je-Je-Je-Jews” the “Real Goon Squad” April 6, 2007

Rapper 50 Cent might be in da you-know-what for calling Jews “goons” on a radio show yesterday. On New York’s Hot 97’s “Miss Jones in the Morning” show, as the New York Daily News reports, Fitty called to weigh-in on fellow rapper Tony Yayo’s assault case. After telling the host that he didn’t think Yayo’s legal troubles would hurt “his crew,” he added, “Worry about the Je-Je-Je-Jew unit. They’re the real goon squad. When the lawyers come out, you’ll see what it is. I don’t pay nobody. I only pay the lawyers.” The rapper didn’t clarify what he meant, or if he was referring to anything in particular.

Official anti-semitism erupts in Venezuela February 25, 2007

Armed police raided the Jewish elementary and high school at the Jewish Cultural Centre in Caracas on 29 November 2004 implementing a court order that alleged that materials of a criminal nature, such as electronic equipment, arms and explosive devices were concealed in the building.The swoop started at 6.30 am, when school buses and parents had already started to bringing children to the school, but, after rooting through the building for three hours, the police left having found zilch. The court order, it has since been revealed, had been issued three days earlier but the police waited until Venezuelan president, Hugo Chavez, arrived in Teheran for a state visit to Iran.

That was two years ago, but things have only got worse in the intervening period. Indeed, since election of the left-wing populist Chavez in 1998, Venezuela has witnessed a proliferation of virulently anti-Israel and anti-Zionist propaganda, frequently entwined with nakedly anti-Jewish slogans.

The Jewish population in Venezuela numbers only around 25,000 out of a total population of close to twenty-seven million. So, why does the official media of a government that claims to be socialist, devote its energy to poisonous attacks on a very small Jewish community?

A Catholic school principal has organized sensitivity training for students who shouted “We love Jesus” during a basketball game against a school with Jewish students.

The word “Jew” also was painted on a gym wall behind the seats of Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School students attending the Feb. 2 game at Norfolk Academy, said Dennis W. Price, principal of the Virginia Beach school.

Price who also watched the game, said the rivals exchanged chants, “Then, at some point, our students were chanting, ‘We love Jesus.'”

“It was obviously in reference to the Jewish population of Norfolk Academy; that’s the only way you can take that,” he added. (more…)

U.N. Anti-Racism Panel Questions Israel February 21, 2007

A United Nations anti-racism hearing later this week could add more fuel to the debate over a hotly contested Israeli construction project that has sparked anger throughout the Muslim world. Israel’s government has also been asked to explain if it discriminates between Jewish citizens and what it calls its “Arab sector” in how it provides housing, education, public services, land rights and legal protection against acts of violence, according to a list of issues released by the U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

The panel of 18 independent experts overseeing compliance with the United Nations’ 38-year-old anti-racism treaty has submitted questions in writing on Israel’s policy for preserving holy sites and asked the government to explain why it only grants special protection for places considered sacred by Jews.

“To date, approximately 120 places have been declared as holy sites, all of which are Jewish,” the committee said in its list of questions, written before the recent furor over a construction project in Jerusalem that some Muslims have charged could damage Islam’s holy places.

Israel – whose quadrennial review was postponed in August because of the Lebanon war – is to appear before the panel on Thursday and Friday to answer the questions, which include whether it “has set forth regulations in relation to holy sites of both the Jewish and non-Jewish population.”

Saudi school in London ‘racist’, former teacher claims February 6, 2007

A school in London that is owned, funded and run by the Saudi Arabian government teaches students that Christians are ‘pigs’ and Jews are ‘monkeys’, a former teacher has alleged in an employment tribunal claim.

The Times of London reports that Colin Cook, who taught English at King Fahad Academy for 18 years, cited Arabic teaching materials used at the school to confirm his belief that the academy was “institutionally racist”.

“The schoolbooks presently in use describe Jews as ‘monkeys’ (or apes) and Christians as ‘pigs’,” said Cook, who was dismissed from the school in December.

After speaking to senior staff about his concerns, Cook, 57, claims he was told: “This is not England, it is Saudi Arabia.”

He is taking action against the school for unfairly dismissing him and because he alleges he suffered racial discrimination for not being a Saudi.

Growing complaints about Israel-bashing, plus Jews being increasingly compared to Nazis during political rallies, has spurred the Anti-Defamation League to hold its first-ever conference on how people can protect themselves against anti-Semitism — from the liberal left.

Anti-Semitism is increasingly seen and heard at liberal events, organizers say, including at anti-war rallies, at labor meetings and even on college campuses. It’s making participation uncomfortable for Jews, who have historically been Democrats.

“We heard from so many people who feel ostracized and alone and don’t really know what to do with this problem,” said Jonathan Bernstein, director of the ADL regional office in San Francisco. People shouldn’t “have to pick between being Jewish and whatever worthwhile cause.”

Sunday’s conference in San Francisco focuses on the problem and teaches coping strategies. The event, which is expected to sell out, will offer talks ranging from “Emphasizing What’s Right in Israel” to “On the Spot Responses to Hurtful Language.”

However, while hateful speech is odious, some critics say groups like ADL are muffling debate by branding almost all criticism of Israel as anti-Semitic.

“It’s like saying anyone who attacks U.S. foreign policy is un-American,” said Saul Kanowitz, an activist with ANSWER, which organizes anti-war rallies. ANSWER stands for Act Now to Stop War and End Racism.

Arab Cabinet Pick Stirs ‘Zionism-Racism’ Debate January 21, 2007

Jerusalem – When Knesset member Esterina Tartman opened her mouth on Israel Radio last week to attack the Labor Party for naming Israel’s first-ever Muslim Arab Cabinet minister, she did more than just rattle Ehud Olmert’s shaky coalition. She opened up a raging national debate on the taboo topic of where Zionism ends and racism begins.

“What [Labor leader] Amir Peretz did this morning is to swing an enormous ax at the tree called Zionism,” said Tartman, a member of the right-wing Yisrael Beitenu party, referring to Peretz’s January 11 designation of Labor lawmaker Ghaleb Majadleh as minister of science, sports and culture. “We need to drive out and destroy this evil from our environs…. The State of Israel is a Jewish state that is supposed to be ruled by Jewish values, with a Jewish regime and Jewish sovereignty.”

Tartman’s comments sparked outrage across the political spectrum from politicians and commentators who called her views racist and compared them to the outlawed doctrines of the late Meir Kahane. “The Zionism of Herzl, Jabotinsky and Begin always advocated the integration of Arabs who are loyal to the state in all of its institutions,” said Knesset member Michael Eitan of the opposition Likud party. Eitan demanded a formal Knesset debate on Tartman’s “racist comments.” “No believer in equality and democracy can accept them being on the agenda,” Eitan said.

Recent poll reveals 75 percent of Jewish students believe Arabs uneducated, uncivilized, unclean. Similar stereotypes found amongst Arab students toward Jews, but in lower percentages

A Haifa University survey investigating Arabs and Jews’ views on one another reveals disturbing results.

The poll showed that 75 percent of Jewish students believe that Arabs are uneducated people, are uncivilized and are unclean. On the other hand 25 percent of the Arab youth believe that Jews are the uneducated ones, while 57 percent of the Arab’s believe Jews are unclean. Over a third of the Jewish students taking part in the survey confirmed that they are afraid of Arabs. The poll was conducted by Dr. Haggai Kupermintz, Dr. Yigal Rosen and Harbi Hasaisi of Haifa University’s Center for Research on Peace Education.The data was presented at a bi-lingual conference held in Haifa. The study, titled “Perception of ‘the Other’ amongst Jewish and Arab Youth in Israel” included 1,600 students studying in 22 high schools around the country.

Michael Richards “Kramer” anti-Semitic and racist? November 30, 2006

LOS ANGELES — Just when it seemed Michael Richards was about to leave the most troubling incident of his career behind, his publicist is having to explain how the comic could consider himself to be Jewish.

Last week, crisis-management expert Howard Rubenstein acknowledged Richards had shouted anti-Semitic remarks in an April standup comedy routine — well before his appearance earlier this month in which he harangued hecklers with the n-bomb. But he defended Richards’ language about Jews, saying that the comic “is Jewish. He’s not anti-Semitic at all. He was role-playing.”

As Rubenstein’s assertion circulated, Jewish organizations and commentators pointed out the man who played Cosmo Kramer on Seinfeld has not converted to Judaism and neither of his parents are Jewish.

[Paul Mooney] [Roland Martin]

CNN’s Kyra Phillips invited comedian Paul Mooney and radio talk show host Roland Martin on to “Newsroom” Tuesday to discuss the Michael Richards (“Kramer”) issue (hat tip to NB member MyKindaSpam). During the conversation, both guests made what many would perceive as being rather anti-Semitic remarks.This was Martin’s:

Another piece is when you really examine what he said, he not only said 50 years ago we’d have you hanging upside down from a tree. Well, guess what, 50 years ago, Michael Richards would have been in some oven in Germany being baked because he’s also Jewish.

Yikes. Mooney must have felt he needed to top that, for later in the discussion, he said:

Excuse me. He’s not a Jew. He’s not a Jew…So people make that mistake. He may look it, but looks are deceiving.

Double Yikes. Now, both of these comments could easily be perceived as the same caliber of anti-Semitism that got Mel Gibson in trouble. Yet, this happened on national television four days ago when both of these folks were seemingly sober and not being arrested. And, this is likely the first most people are hearing about it.

TRENTON — A 69-year-old Pennington woman who was fired last year from her teaching job at St. Raphael’s School has filed a lawsuit against the Diocese of Trenton alleging discrimination be cause she is Jewish.

Eva Kaplan also claims in the suit filed last week in Superior Court that she lost her job because of her age and that she was replaced by a younger, less qualified teacher.

Kaplan, who began teaching at the school in 1985, was accredited as a non-Catholic in catechism, the suit said.

In 2000, Kaplan switched from teaching art and became the school’s technology coordinator, the suit said. She taught computer science and also maintained the school’s computer network.

In the 2001-02 school year, Diane Kowalewski became principal at St. Raphael. Kowalewski, who is no longer at the school, could not be reached for comment.

Kaplan alleges that Kowalewski repeated a statement by Monsignor Gregory Vaughan that “all those who teach religion in the Diocese of Trenton, in addition to being faithful Catholics, must be certified catechists (teachers of religion).”

Susan Nathan, author of “The Other Side: My Journey across the Arab/Jewish Divide,” argued that Israeli Arabs suffer from a culture of systematic discrimination and called for change in the talk “One Woman’s Attempt to Challenge Segregation and Racism” held last night.

A British-born Jew, Nathan moved to Israel to escape the discrimination she experienced in Britain. Her parents were refuges from World War II, and Nathan was raised as a minority, being the only Jew in her entire school of 400 students.

“Growing up, I always felt I was living on the outside of society,” Nathan said. “It was as if the shadow of the Holocaust was constantly hanging over my family.”

Nathan said she even experienced anti-Semitism first hand.

“When I was 16, I passed complex exams to attend a prestigious public university in Britain, only to be told that though my scores were satisfactory, I could not be admitted to attend the university because the Jewish quota had already been met,” she said.

Israel had always been ingrained within her mind as a land of safety to which she could escape in case things in Europe ever took a turn for the worse.

Once she moved to Israel, Nathan found that her new country also suffered from discrimination. However, this time, Jews, rather than being discriminated against, were the ones discriminating. she said. The Arabs of Israel suffered from severe segregation comparable to the plight during South Africa’s apartheid, she argued.

Blog Entry: The Racist Plays The Race Card October 30, 2006

Posted by C.A.R.D in Card, Citizens Against Racism and Discrimination, Jew, Racism, Racist.

An interesting interesting blog post was sent to us which is taken from the blog The American Israeli Patriot. The blog also has some other interestig post about racism

In my past two posts, I brought you the story of the SABC’s unlawful firing of Paula Slier, simply because she is a Jew. Today I will examine the sordid past of the PLO supporter who serves as Managing Director of News and Current Affairs for SABC, Snuki Zikalala. Recall that Zikalala was directly responsible for the firing Paula Slier.

In 2004, the SABC appointed Zikalala as the Managing Director of news and current affairs. Zikalala rejoined the SABC from the Ministry of Labour where he was the Senior Executive responsible for communications and media. Zikalala, a former member of the African National Congress (ANC) with a PhD in communications from the University of Bulgaria, was fired from his post as executive editor of SABC news a few years ago because the department was in disarray. There were also serious questions regarding his journalistic ethics. In 2000, he was openly told not to apply for the position of Managing Director (which he currently holds) because the Board was looking for someone with “business acumen”.

This from “IOL” on Zikalala’s 2004 appointment:

The appointment of a government spokesperson to the head of SABC news has prompted unambiguous criticism as being the beginning of the end of the corporation’s role as a public broadcaster. His appointment, two months after he denied having any interest in the top job, has horrified media analysts and political parties, who perceive this as politicization of the broadcaster.

In one case, a couple who are of Swedish descent found a swastika and an anti-Arab slogan spray-painted on their garage. They believe the intended victims were the family next door, who are of Arabic descent.

A Jewish family in the same neighborhood found a swastika painted on their front

Rockford Police Sergeant Klint Kellet said last night the cases are being regarded as criminal damage to property pending further investigation.

Israel Bars New Palestinian Students From Its Universities, Citing Concern Over Security October 16, 2006

Sawsan Salameh, a Palestinian from the West Bank, was thrilled to get a full scholarship from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to begin a doctorate in theoretical chemistry.

But a recent move by the Israeli Army to ban new Palestinian students from Israeli universities for security reasons is keeping her from studying at the campus, just two miles from her home.

“The first time I applied for a permit I was rejected,” said Ms. Salameh, 29, a Muslim wearing a firmly fastened head scarf and a black denim skirt that skimmed the floor. “I was shocked, because I thought there must be some kind of mistake, so I kept trying. I kept hoping.”

Her situation is familiar to many Palestinians whose freedom of movement has been limited in recent years because of the continuing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Ms. Salameh said that after she appealed six times to the Israeli government agency that handles Palestinian affairs, she decided to turn to the Supreme Court. On Tuesday, Gisha, an Israeli group that is an advocate for Palestinian rights, submitted a petition on her behalf to the court, calling the ban illegal.

“Gisha calls upon Israel not to prevent Palestinian students from studying just because they are Palestinian,” said the group’s director, Sari Bashi. “No one should be denied access to education based on his or her national identity.”

Israel’s ambassador to Norway has complained to press regulators about a cartoon showing Israeli PM Ehud Olmert as a Nazi concentration camp commander. Miryam Shomrat told the BBC the caricature in Oslo’s Dagbladet newspaper went beyond free speech.

Ms Shomrat said it would be open to prosecution in some European countries.

Dagbladet’s editor said the caricature was “within the bounds of freedom of expression,” according to Norway’s NRK state broadcaster.

Ms Shomrat made the official complaint to the Norwegian Press Trade Committee following the publication of the cartoon on 10 July.

In an interview with the BBC’s Europe Today, she said however that her protest could not be compared to the outcry in the Muslim world over the publication in a Danish newspaper of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed.

Lars Helle, Dagbladet’s acting editor-in-chief, said the newspaper was taking the complaint seriously.

This is the hidden story that the mainstream media is not reporting on in the shadow of George Allen’s public racial slur. The story is about George Allen’s political opponent James Webb distributing anti-Semitic fliers. You should note that this story first broke in early June and has hardly gotten any attention. The featured story follows below:

A Jim Webb campaign flier that could be interpreted as anti-Semitic drew the ire of his opponent, Harris Miller, in a radio debate yesterday.

A Scottish actor who worked on Braveheart once told a director friend of mine what it was like working with Mel Gibson. “He’s off his head,” alleged the actor. “We’d all be standing there in kilts and with blue woad painted on our faces, ready to do a shot, when suddenly Mel would announce to the Alcoholics Anonymous members among us – a healthy number – that we had to have a meeting. So there we would be, behind the catering van with painted faces, reading from the Big Book and sharing our experience. You know, ‘My name’s Mel and I’m an alcoholic,’ then we’d all go back to the set and get stuck into the English.”

Recovering alcoholics like to say that they’re sober one day at a time, and it can’t be easy knowing that you’re always just one drink away from your former self. Gibson went spectacularly off the rails last Friday and reportedly did what many alcoholics do – he allegedly drove his car at nearly 90mph, drank from a bottle of tequila, got stopped and arrested, and verbally abused the officers in charge. As situations go, it wasn’t very striking, except that the drunk was a Hollywood star. It certainly wasn’t unusual that the arrested person issued a stream of abuse at the police, racist, misogynist or otherwise. All police will tell you this is standard. Gibson reportedly said: “F—ing Jews. The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.”

Silly man – pathetic, even. There isn’t an ounce of reason in what Gibson said, but then, who could expect there to be? Well, the entire Western world, apparently, which imagines that what a drunk Catholic actor says in the extremity of his cups might represent a threat to civilisation.
