Charles Jacobs: Americans for Hate and Intolerance

Welcome Gefilte, a loonwatcher with a unique perspective.

The Forward listed Charles Jacobs as one of America’s Top 50 Jewish leaders in 2007. Apparently they were looking more at the range of his activism and less at what mischief he was actually up to.

Jacobs has been a founder of Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America, the American Anti-Slavery Group, and the David Project, a member of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, and has now created the oxymoronically named Americans for Peace and Tolerance. Jacobs has taken Abe Foxman to task for being too soft on Muslims.

Long before the Park51 project made news, Jacobs spearheaded opposition to an Islamic Center in Roxbury and slammed governor Deval Patrick and Boston mayor Thomas Menino when they late supported the project and met with Boston community leaders. Despite widespread repudiation Jacobs continues to maintain that the Roxbury center is linked to global terror plots. He has also continued personal attacks in the Jewish Advocate on fellow Jews who extended hands of friendship to the Muslim community, notably Rabbi Eric Gurvis. But in June seventy Boston area rabbis signed a petition supporting Gurvis and denounced Jacobs’ smears.

In a FrontPage Mag interview Jacobs describes how he — and Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs — views Islam as nothing more than a doctrine requiring adherents to become terrorists:

Two years ago I attended a three day conference in Jerusalem on Global Anti-Semitism sponsored by Israel ‘s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Senior leaders of American Jewry were present. We all heard how Islamic anti-Semitism – theologically based, was spread with Saudi funding to mosques and madrassas throughout the Islamic world, instructing tens if not hundreds of millions of people that Jews were the sons of monkeys and pigs and that to kill us is a holy deed.

Jacobs is a regular contributor to Andrew Breitbart’s Big Peace blog and to David Horowitz’s Frontpage Mag. His “Clash of Civiliations” worldview mesh with pro-Israel advocacy and neoconservatism.

In July of this year Jacobs participated in a panel discussion in Aspen, Colorado, entitled “Conscience and Conflict,” featuring fellow neocons John Bolton, Phillis Chesler and Caroline Glick, at which he bemoaned Europeans as “neopagans” and “socialists,” decried mosques as “victory markers,” and stated “there is no moderate Muslim doctrine.”

Recently Jacobs made a big stink over a visit of students from the Wellseley public schools to an area mosque as part of multicultural education. In an article entitled “Propaganda is not Education,” Jacobs wrote:

Those who care about “religious ignorance and conflict over belief systems” should care about the radicalization of the historically moderate American Muslim community and the unwitting embrace of radical Muslims by our political and civic leaders.

Not only are Jacobs’ enemies all of the world’s Muslims, the press, Europeans, the United Nations, non-governmental aid agencies, liberals, and academics — but now even political and civil leaders have let him down too.

    Welcome Gefilte.Nice start.What a big hypocrite this Charles is.Does he even know what peace and tolerance means?what a scumbag

  • Nur Alia

    …oh, and have you noticed?

    Those who scream for the firing of people who speak thier mind and critisize Israel…are the same people who defend people who spew thier personal hatred of Muslims against being fired?

    Could it be? Vieled in the context of free speach, there is an alternative agenda?

    Well, I am glad now that the same people who would protest against Saudi Arabia forcing women to wear an abayah, or Iranian women to cover thier hair…are the same ones supporting restricting or banning a woman’s right to wear something she wants to…all in the name of women’s rights.

    Could it be? Vieled in the cotext of free expression an alternative agenda?

    I guess…whoever these flip floppers are, they do whatever they are paid to do.

  • Nur Alia

    First, I would like to say something to anyone, including the article writers.

    Muslims should stop using the phrase ‘pro Israel’ or “Jewish” when speaking of the hatemongers. Simply, because not all Israelis, or Jews agree with these people. We should be mindful not to link an ideology with a group of people, like the media, and the hate mongerers do to us.

    Let us not become like them. Let us not justify these HateCorp. INC executives or ‘verbal mercenaries’ hate by being like them.

    What we actually see here is Zionism. Not Israelis or Jews. Zionism is a political ideology, not a people or religion. In fact, Zionists, around the world are mostly misguided Christians, or people like Geert Wilders who hides his bigotry amonst the political movement. There might be some who simply belive the crafted media campaign, and dont know that there are 2 sides to this story.

    We want people to see the truth, to discover Zionism is the threat, and what drives the Israeli/Palistinian conflict, not Israelis or Jews, or Muslims, or West Bankers or Gazans.

    We need to help seperate the root cause of the problem so mucked up in the viel of religion.

    Welcome Gefilte, I like the name! Well, Charles Jacobs is a definite loon, and his prejudice is clear though he tries to mask it, and for him to say that Abe Foxman is too soft on Islam is a hoot!

  • Syed

    Indeed we gave the children of Israel the Book, and wisdom, and the prophecy, and we provided them with good things and favored them above all creation. (Quran 45:16)

    Now why don’t they cite this verse of the Quran is a mystery to me! The Islamic extremists will never cite it for obvious reasons. The Islamophobes on the other hand wont cite it because they will lose their raison detre. They need some imaginary insult to take umbrage to.

  • Cynic

    I wonder who the idiot was who explained theologically to “America’s senior Jewry” that they’re the sons of apes and pigs? I guess when somebody is inclined to believe something, it just takes somebody to say it for them to believe it.

  • Mosizzle

    Not to be anti-semitic or anything, but they have the money and resources to do these kind of things.

  • JD

    Rep. André Carson is one of only two Muslims in Congress; the Indianapolis Democrat insists religion isn’t that much of an issue with voters he meets.

    “As-salaam alaikum, Oscar Mayer bacon,” he quipped during a meeting with The Star’s Editorial Board a few weeks ago. ” ‘What are you going to do about my job?’ ”

    Carson’s Republican opponent, Marvin Scott, must hope it’s not that simple. He has been playing the Muslim card unabashedly, warning 7th District voters of sinister plans by Carson to impose sharia law (whatever that’s supposed to mean) on the nation.

    It’s a tack taken by GOP candidates elsewhere, and it prompts an instant history lesson from noted comparative religion scholar Reza Aslan.

    “Imagine he was a Jew or a Catholic and his opponent said he should not be elected because he was not a true American,” Aslan said. “His loyalty was to the pope or, as a Jew, he was foreign, exotic, not to be trusted.

    “Every single word used by anti-Muslim activists and zealots was used against Jews in the early part of the last century and Catholics in the 19th century. And in both cases, they were times of economic stress and anxiety, so a scapegoat was found.”

    Tea Party leader: Defeat Ellison because he’s Muslim
    By Justin Elliott

    The leader of one of the three biggest Tea Party groups has called for Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., to be defeated this election explicitly because he is Muslim.

    The call came in a weekend Web posting not by a fringe member of a Tea Party group, but by Tea Party Nation leader and founder Judson Phillips, a Tennessee attorney. (Tea Party Nation, with over 30,000 online members, is now the third largest Tea Party network, according to an NAACP report.) Phillips asked Tea Party Nation members to support an opponent of Ellison, with this reasoning:

    There are a lot of liberals who need to be retired this year, but there are few I can think of more deserving than Keith Ellison. Ellison is one of the most radical members of congress. He has a ZERO rating from the American Conservative Union. He is the only Muslim member of congress. He supports the Counsel for American Islamic Relations, HAMAS and has helped congress send millions of tax dollars to terrorists in Gaza.

    (Note: This is actually not accurate. Rep. Andre Carson is also Muslim.)

    We’re suprised this isn’t getting more attention. Unlike in the flap over a racist satire written by Mark Williams of the Tea Party Express, Phillips has not withdrawn the post or apologized. It’s hard to imagine that this would not have made more of a splash if Phillips had targeted, say, a Jewish member of Congress for being Jewish or a Mormon member for being Mormon. In any case, we’ve reached out to Phillips on this, and will update this post if we hear back.

    commitee for accuracy on middle east reporting…….., presumably any report showing Israel as not quite poster girl of democracy is innaccurate or god forbid antisemetic? Reminds me of a similar outfit in new zealand (Kiwis for balanced reporting on the middle east) that take out full page ads in New Zealand Herald every time there is a news item which is critical of Israel. Or even our favourite Islamophobic News Channel…. fox New’s slogan…. fair and balanced…….My A**e!!!

    Exactly! These sorts of fly-over state IDIOTS are fueled by hatred and xenophobia. They claim to represent ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy,’ but those are nothing more than buzzwords. They really only mean that you have the ‘freedom’ to believe exactly like them or ELSE! If you oppose them you are obviously a ‘traitor’ and deserve to be killed… read their literature some time. Even the comments people like ‘Cheryl’ post here. They gleefully describe the death of people who have committed no other crime than disagreeing with them.

    By their twisted logic, nobody has any right to believe in Islam or follow any culture other than their own. They WANT everyone to be the same. Perhaps because they feel insecure, or perhaps because they want to control people. Who knows. But there is an ideology at play here… an organized, systematic ideology every bit as sick as that of Nazi Germany. These are the same people who only a while back were anti-immigration, anti-civil rights, anti-black, anti-gay, anti-Latino, anti-Japanese, anti-Chinese, anti-Jewish, anti-Hindu….

    IF we allow them to oppress us, IF we allow them to seize power, IF we are dumb enough to allow them to continue on their path once again, they will eventually turn on other groups. Does anyone really think that SIOA, EDL, UDC, BNP and the like are in favor of ‘tolerance’ and ‘diversity’. Once they are done with us Muslims do you think they will need to keep other ‘Wogs’ and ‘Pakis’ around? Not to mention the Jews… which is why I cannot understand any Jew supporting these hooligans and thugs.

    @ BMD:

    > Actually Israeli media is more critical and fair about Israel. It’s the
    > American right wing Zionist media that is the problem.

    Touche! As I’ve said before, it’s very easy for a person who isn’t directly involved to become a cheerleader, a caricature… no a PARODY of the whole damned situation. American evangelicals can sit back and applaud the death of Palestinian children because they aren’t involved. They have never set foot there and probably never will, so the deaths don’t affect them. They simply view in terms of a black-and-white abstract conflict between ‘good’ (the ‘white’ Israelis) and ‘evil’ (the Arab Muslim hordes). That’s why they are so keen on contributing money, which is the only reason that the conflicts have gone on this long in the first place!

    Thats what I mean about eyes closed .
    Sometimes its the why thats as important as what is reported.

  • Beautiful Muslim Doll

    Sir David,

    Actually Israeli media is more critical and fair about Israel. It’s the American right wing Zionist media that is the problem. The Kapouliek link in that other thread is one such example. CAMERA is an American propoganda outlet, as is MEMRI.

    Check Israel’s most influential media (Haaretz) it would never get the stuff it publishes published in America.

    LOL,

    Welcome, and brilliant first article Gefilte 🙂

    good digging too, by the time you reach the end,

    “Not only are Jacobs’ enemies all of the world’s Muslims, the press, Europeans, the United Nations, non-governmental aid agencies, liberals, and academics — but now even political and civil leaders have let him down too.”

    you almost make people feel sorry for him LOL

  • Crow

    Charles Jacobs spreading peace, tolerance and freedom for all…um..unless youre Muslim or a liberal or from the media or european or the united nations or an academic. And the worrisome thing about guys like this is they want to take THEIR country back no room for anyone that disagrees with them

  • mindy1

    @Sir David 😆 at your sarcasm. Regarding this article do they not see the similarities between Judaism and Islam?

  • Sir David ( Illuminati membership number 5:32) Warning Contains Irony

    Look at the banner in the photo and how they talk rubbish over and over again about them giving us their paper dollars in exchange for our Oil, they give meaningless paper for our natural resources, they should keep their mouths shut, or it’d be best if we could cut all ties with them until they come crawling on their stomachs begging for Oil…

    Wow. Way to be a nutcase. And you think you have seen them all.
