Palestinian leader’s speech condemned as anti-Semitic
By Ian Deitch, Associated Press, May 2, 2018
JERUSALEM (AP) — [Anti-European] Remarks by the Palestinian president about the causes of 20th century anti-Semitism [anti-Kikery] in Europe were sharply criticized as anti-Semitic and drew widespread condemnations from Israel [sic] and [from Kikes and their whores] around the world on Wednesday.
In [allegedly] rambling remarks that were part of a lengthy speech to the Palestine Liberation Organization parliament on Monday, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said [accurately, that] it was the Jews’ “social function,” including money lending that caused animosity toward them in Europe. He also [incorrectly] portrayed the creation of Israel as a European colonial project, saying [correctly, that] “history tells us there is no basis for the Jewish homeland.”
The comments drew criticism [from Kikes and their whores] that Abbas perpetuated anti-Semitic stereotypes and ignored the [not] deep Jewish [i.e. Kike (mostly Khazar Turk)] historical connections to the [Christian] Holy Land.
The Yad Vashem Holocaust [what?] memorial said in a statement that Abbas’ speech was “replete with antisemitic tropes and distortions of historical facts” and accused the Palestinian president of “blatantly falsifying history to the point of accusing the Jewish victims as being responsible for their own murder.”
The U.N.’s special coordinator for the Middle East peace process, [Bulgarian whore of the Kikes] Nikolay Mladenov, said [falsely] in a statement that “leaders have an obligation to confront anti-Semitism everywhere and always, not perpetuate the conspiracy theories that fuel it.” [Mladenov was program director of Kike Soros’s Open Society Foundation in Sofia, followed by an appointment as a program coordinator in the social department of the kike World Bank for Bulgaria.]
The [kike] U.S. ambassador to Israel [sic] lashed out at Abbas over his remarks.
“Abu Mazen has reached a new low,” Ambassador [Kike] David Friedman tweeted, referring to Abbas by his nickname. “To all those who think Israel [sic] is the reason that we don’t have peace, think again.”
The rhetoric reflects the escalating tensions between the Palestinians and the Trump administration. Ties have been strained since Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last year, prompting the Palestinians to suspend contacts with the administration.
[Kike] Friedman and Abbas have sparred before. In March, Abbas called [Kike] Friedman a “son of a dog” in an angry rant.
Israeli [sic] Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Abbas’ remarks were “the pinnacle of ignorance” and that the Palestinian leader was “again reciting the most disgraceful anti-Semitic slogans.”
The European Union said in a statement that the Palestinian president’s speech “contained unacceptable remarks concerning the origins of the Holocaust and Israel[sic]’s legitimacy.”
Israel[sic]’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon sent a letter to the U.N. Security Council demanding condemnation of Abbas’ remarks and accusing the Palestinian president of trying to rewrite history with conspiracy theories.

2011.04.28, Whore Nickolay Mladenov, Foreign Minister of the Republic of Bulgaria, addressed the American Jewish Committee’s Global Forum:
Dear friends from the Jewish community,
Before I start let me add my voice to those who have called for us to remember the victims of natural disasters in the United States over the last few days.
Let me also call on all of us to remember the victims of manmade disasters in the Middle East. Those people who are currently in the streets of Misrata, on the square in …, in Syria, standing up for their freedom peacefully and demanding that their vision of a free Middle East – a Middle East in which human rights are observed – be met.
The friendship between Bulgaria and the American Jewish Committee has stood the test of time, much like the friendship of the Bulgarian people and the people of the United States of America.
To many of us the last twenty years were about bringing our country back to the community of values from which it was brutally separated by World War II, by the Nazis and then by Communism.
In 1989, when the Berlin Wall fell we looked to the United States as a beacon of democracy; we looked to the Jewish people, whose struggle for a homeland resembles much of our own history and whose ambitions for peace and recognition have been shared by countless Bulgarians throughout generations.
Our agenda was ambitious and bold — to transform our country into a democratic state; to revive and strengthen our traditions of tolerance and respect for all faiths; and to bring our country into NATO and the European Union. Our friends in the United States and Israel have stood with us every step of the way.
In August of last year my good friend David Harris was awarded the Order of the Madara Horseman — one of our nation’s highest decorations, for his invaluable contribution to the development of the Bulgarian – US relations.
Allow me today to extend that recognition to every single one of you here, to all members and friends of the American Jewish Committee and say thank you for consistently promoting the friendship between our nations and helping forge a strong alliance between Bulgaria and the United States,
Thank you for your unfailing support for reforms, and for promoting Bulgaria’s membership in the NATO;
Thank you for partnering with the Bulgarian Jewish Community “Shalom” in standing up to anti-Semitism; remembering the Holocaust; countering the influence of Islamist extremism and other movements hostile to our shared security.
Just a few days ago, Pesach was celebrated. At the Seder night you read in the Haggada: “in every generation a person is obligated to see himself as if he or she himself has come out of Egypt.”
Mitzrayim, the Hebrew word for “Egypt,” can also be read as Meitzarim meaning “boundaries” and “constrictions”; yetziat mitzrayim, “going out of Egypt,” is the endeavor to rise above all that inhibits us.
Our greatest challenge today is overcoming the meitzrayim that we have created ourselves and standing resolute for what is good, what is right, and what is righteous.
Tonight I would like to address three sets of questions — the threat of rising xenophobia and anti-Semitism, particularly in Europe; peace between the State of Israel and the Palestinian people; and the wave of change that is sweeping across the Middle East and North Africa.
The choices that we make today on how we address these challenges will prove whether we have been able to collectively — as a global community of democracies — successfully complete our yetziat mitzrayim.
A recent report concluded that about half of all Europeans believe that there are too many immigrants in their countries, a significant number of people think that Jews seek to benefit from their forbearers’ suffering during the Nazi era; and half or more of respondents condemn Islam as “a religion of intolerance”. The report concluded that anti-Semitism and other forms of xenophobia are very closely linked. That those with anti-Semitic tendencies are likely to be xenophobic against other minority groups, including Muslims, as well as resentful of homosexuals and women.
Is it true that we can do nothing about these things? Should we accept them, should we accept the anti-Semitism and xenophobia as the boundaries — the meitzrayim — of today’s reality? Or should we challenge them, stand up and defend our own values?
Here are a few suggestions of what I think we should do challenge this threat.
First, we should never ever forget the crime of the Holocaust – as Yom Hashoa that will be internationally commemorated this coming Sunday
In human history to this day this remains perhaps the darkest hour. Keeping the memory of the Shoah alive serves the memories of the countless human beings who perished in the death camps, but also keeps us vigilant about the dangers of genocide around the world.
While remembering the Shoah, we should not shy away from showing the world the crimes against humanity committed by the Soviet Stalinist regime. Those crimes are an intricate part of the history of the Holocaust.
I come from a country that is in a turbulent part of the world, yet has managed to prove that people of different religions – Christians, Muslims and Jews; of different ethnic backgrounds – Bulgarians, Turks and Armenians can actually live together. Bulgaria has seen stellar moments in its history, for example when civil society rose during the Second World War and refused to allow its Jewish population to be sent to concentration camps saving the lives of about 50,000 human beings; or when, after the end of Communism, we peacefully reintegrated our Turkish minority back into our own country.
But it has also seen its dark moments – when it failed to save the Jewish populations of occupied Northern Greece and Vardar Macedonia who were deported to the death camps; or when the Communist regime expelled a large part of our Muslim citizens not because of anything they did, but because of who they were.
Our history teaches us that nations are strong when their civic spirit is strong. It teaches us that you must find pride not only in great historic battles and ancient legends, but in great feats of civic activism, in the standing up for your values and protecting your neighbors. The Jews of Bulgaria survived World War II because hundreds of religious and community leaders, politicians, ordinary men and women stood up and refused to be part of Hitler’s madness.
Imagine the courage and conviction it took to stand up to Nazi policies in a country that was allied with the Third Reich!
As a young Bulgarian I stand tall and proud of the spirit of my predecessors. Their example actually inspires me much more than the Medieval stories of greatness and empires that we have so many of in Europe.
As a human being I cannot but feel shameful that this civic spirit — so strong in Bulgaria during the times of the Shoah — was not present in the occupied territories, where at least 11,000 Jews perished. Their memory lives on and they shall never be forgotten.
It is because of this inspiring, yet tragic history that we in Bulgaria are very sensitive to any attempt to deny anyone their right of existence or of a homeland. This is why we are very sensitive to any attempt to deny the Jewish people the right of a homeland and a state.
I can accept criticism of the policies of any government, but I cannot stand idle when the right of existence is denied to anyone.
To dismiss such policies in passing, would mean to fail at our collective yetziat mitzrayim, because the success of our civilization will be measured by our ability to protect and promote the values of democracy, freedom and tolerance, not just by the number of iPads we produce.
My country today is the product of the traditions of Christians, Jews and Muslims. One’s ethnic background, one’s religious believes do not matter — we are all a part of the Bulgarian nation.
We will say “no” to all who aim to de-legitimize Israel; The vilification and demonizing of Israel is not only a denial of its right of existence as a home for the Jewish people but a blunt assault on the very values of democracy, freedom and independent human spirit.
To refuse the right of Israel to exist means to refuse the right of the Palestinian people to also have a state of their own.
The Jewish people have the right to have a homeland in the State of Israel.
Ten days ago I visited president Assad in Damascus and spoke at length with him. And I carried a strong message that had two elements. First, break the cycle of violence, pull back the tanks. Second, open up a rapid, radical programme of reforms for Syria. To this message I can only now add two things – stop harboring enemies of peace and extend a hand to agreement with your neighbors. Difficult choices are needed. But historic choices that are fundamental to the security of the Middle East, to the security of Europe and ultimately to the security of the United States. And I hope you will join me today and many others across Europe who want to call on the leadership of Syria to be loyal not to anyone else but to its own people and to initiate radical, massive, unprecedented reforms that will open up that country and provide for its return into the family of all modern nations. I think this is perhaps the most important message that this week we can all carry to our friends in the Middle East if we really not just crave but work for peace.
Dear David, dear friends,
I started by quoting the Mishna. “In every generation, a person is obligated to see himself as if he or she himself has come out of Egypt.” Pesah is the festival of eternal freedom, it shows that salvation is possible indeed, that we must do good, that it’s not just about remembering but reliving, overcoming and educating.
The values that are enshrined in the Pesah carry a universal message across religions and cultures.
A message that is shared by Christians on Easter, a message with which all who have lived in oppression can identify with. And I hope we take that message together to all those who continue to live under oppression.
