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.

    and if you do, Rabbi Haim Beliak of Jews on First jewsonfirst.org has written an excellent rebuttal to “Obsession” too. Anyway, Richard Silverstein has a blockbuster on his site, hatipped from Counterpuch,

    Give someone enough rope and he’ll hang himself

    True that, though I can’t help but wonder if it’s a sort of jealousy towards the Jews more than anything else. The Jewish people can claim a unique connection to the culture, lands and history of the Bible. They still preserve Hebrew, Jewish rituals like Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, and practices like circumcision and wearing yarmulkes. Thanks in part to their persecution, both in the Christian and unfortunately Muslim worlds, the Jewish people have maintained their own culture, their own identity, their own communities.

    White evangelicals just don’t have that. Their ancestors came from other places, mostly England, Germany, and the like. As part of the mainstream culture in the US, they can’t really claim to be a persecuted minority. Sure, they might try and limit their contact with the ‘secular’ world by only shopping at Christian bookstores and the like, but the fact is that they don’t have any real difference from more mainstream white Christians. And I think that really bothers of them. They are conscious of these differences and want to compensate for it.

    You’ll notice white evangelicals have consistently been the most vocally opposed to ANY group that goes against the norm. Not only are they anti-Muslim, but they also tend to be anti-homosexual, anti-Latino, anti-immigration, anti-multiculturalism, anti-science… pretty much anyone who is outside of their carefully constructed bubble. And it’s funny because they have the AUDACITY to claim we are bigoted!

    The funny thing is that it would be sooo easy for them to fill that cultural void. Anyone can learn Hebrew, or any other language. Nothing stops me from going out and learning Chinese, or Finnish, or isiZulu! Nothing stops me from celebrating Yom Kippur, or Divali, or from making up my OWN holiday. Nothing stops me from dressing up in a kimono, or eating tocosh, or adopting the manners of Inuit tribesmen if I so desire.

    White evangelicals, I think, are jealous of the fact that other and (quite frankly) more interesting cultures exist out there. But they are so hung up on preserving their ‘white’ identity that they refuse to assimilate or adopt the ways of other people. Instead, they hate us for CHOOSING to preserve our own cultures. And yes, I’m including the Jews in that, because as much as the white evangelicals may claim otherwise, they aren’t very friendly towards the Jewish faith and those who follow it.

    “The Jews and Christians say: ‘We are the children of God and His loved ones.’ Say: ‘Why then does He punish you for your sins?'” (Quran 5:18)

    Wow, will you look at that, Porky. You’re so unoriginal the Quran wrote a retort for you 1400 years ago.

    Don’t mind him, Mindy. Islamophobes tend to be anti-Semites and vice versa. Two sides of the same coin.

    You are welcome, Mindy

  • Always a pleasure Mindy, thank you for being a rational person 🙂 I just hope he visits my site someday, the comments section is a bit dull at the moment and I could use a laugh…

  • Beautiful Muslim Doll

    Garibaldi, the comments are not moderated, they appear immediately. H-Pork brings nothing of value, just recycles the same garbage again and again.

    Can you not introduce a registered members commenting? This way, registered members comments can appear immediately, and those that abuse can be banned and comments are deleted when they’re banned, and they can’t register unless they use another email.

    This system would be better than either of the ones you’ve had, which are, all comments moderated or no comments moderated and abusive ones removed if a moderator sees them.

    Thanks 🙂

    Thanks for sticking up for me guys 😀

    Halal Pork said, “The Jews are the Earthly Children of God,chosen and blessed by Dod.”
    He then told Mindy1, “Sadly,you are a self hating nauseating Jewess.You have no backbone of Integrity.Just a boot licker.”

    Looks like being blessed by ‘Dod’ don’t give you a free pass from bigotry and hatred!

  • Careful Mr Pork, that is my sister-in-faith as well as my sister-in-humanity you are talking to! Don’t make me go green now…

    And a very big lol for you telling someone to grow up 😀 I think your attitude towards Mindy is showing your true colors r.e. Jews.

  • Mindy I apologize for the abuse you are getting from pyscho halapork. He slipped moderation somehow.

  • Miss Jay

    Happy to see that folks are finally catching on that this moonbat is just another Joe McCarthy, and “peace and tolerance” should sue for identity theft. Not only are they loons but they thumb their noses at the laws of non-profits i.e. you can’t engage in partisan politics (they proudly display how threatening Aldermen in Newton, Mass. with a recall election got the Aldermen to change their mind on an issue), and they made a big deal of introducing Sean Bielat, the Republican running against Barney Frank, at one of their “events”. Too bad the video doesn’t also include Charlie’s full introduction of Sean – the one where he undoubtedly told the group that they all need to support Sean’s candidacy.

    I think there is only one self hater round here and it does not take long for everyone to work out who it is 😉

  • mindy1

    @Halal Pork-I am NOT self hating. I just recognize the common thread of faith and humanity I share with Muslims. All of the Abrahamic faiths share a common heritage, if people would acknowledge that we could have peace-if peace is not a dirty word to you.

  • @ MINDI 1 :Sadly,you are a self hating nauseating Jewess.You have no backbone of Integrity.Just a boot licker.May God help you grow up a little.When are you going to say your SHAHADA?

    When halalpork posts the same shit again and again(generally twice)then we surely know he is having epilepsy fits.

    Zakariya Ali Sher: theres a quote by Sinclair Lewis: when fascism comes to America it will come wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross, I’ve talked to some of these false patriots and heard them giddily talk about the return of mccarthyism, jim crow and speak longingly of a civil war so they can kill those who oppose them like cockroaches(I think the TRUE American patriots will have something to say about this) when you object to them they scream PATRIOT! USA! JESUS! now I havent been in a church for a while but I think if these so-called christians were there when the crowd was asked what to do with Jesus they’d be the ones screaming CRUCIFY HIM the loudest. as for the Jews that think theyre safe theyre wrong because as you said once theyre done with Muslims (which will never happen because the true Americans and Christians wont let it happen) who do the Jews think theyll turn on?

    Our resident paranoid schizophrenic porky pig is so ecstatic about his latest rant, he needed to post it twice because once just wasn’t enough to get the crazy across. Well done porky.
