CLEAVE MEDIA: A Zionist Feminist Perspective
WoMen Fight AntiSemitism cleaves through the headline barrier. We use media watchdogs and a range of news sources that refuse to use Israel, the only Jewish nation on earth, as a scapegoat and punching bag. CLEAVE MEDIA is politically inquisitive and independent, viewing issues from all sides without partisan constraints. We view Israel and Jewish security as a global issue, not a partisan issue. Those concerned for the security of the sole Jewish nation (there are 50 Muslim nations and 15 Christian nations) such as our network of informants and journalists, who span the globe.

CLEAVE MEDIA speaks with Deborah Friedman of the NC Coalition for Israel who is suing Durham, NC, for outlawing police exchanges with Israel. Under the current city council influenced by Linda Sarsour to adopt BDS and and a Justice Democrats agenda, crime has risen 75% in all communities, particularly hitting African-American and immigrant communities, with Antisemitism is a serious ongoing crisis. Durham has seen a rapid decline under the influence of Sarsour, Jewish Voice for Peace, and SJP as the city attemps to define itself as a pro-BDS entity within an anti-BDS state. We speak with Daria, co-host of CLEAVE MEDIA, as well to learn more about the recently passed anti-BDS law in Germany. Feel free to drop us questions for a follow-up interview with Deborah Friedman in the near future.
Ilhan Omar seizes spotlight to push pro-BDS resolutionBryant Harris July 16, 2019"On Wednesday, Engel’s committee will vote on an anti-BDS resolution, introduced by Reps. Bradley Schneider, D-Ill., and Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y. The resolution was a priority for American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) activists during their annual lobbying day earlier this year. The committee also plans to vote on a military aid bill that codifies the $38 billion, 10-year memorandum of understanding with Israel into law — another AIPAC priority.While both bills still have more than enough support to pass, Omar told Al-Monitor that she intends to vote no."
Daria recounts how her grandmother raised funds for The Bullenhuser Damm Memorial.Daria's Grandmother, Renata, born in 1938 in Georgia, an engineer and engineering professor, curates music programs in Hamburg. Through this work, she was able to raise the funds to erect a monument to the 20 children murdered in the Holocaust, Kinder vom Bullenhuser Damm. There are twenty streets in the area, one named for each child.
Leave Jews Out of ItTrump erred by bringing Israel into his Twitter attack against the “squad.”By James Kirchick"Due to anti-Semitism on the left—symbolized by the Democratic Party’s pathetic response to Omar’s repeated outbursts, and the concerted effort by many leading liberal commentators to shield her from criticism—a number of American Jews have become uncomfortable with their traditional political home. The president senses this and is plainly trying to exploit a real and emerging cleavage.""Whether emanating from the woke, anti-Zionist left or the reactionary, isolationist right, the charge is basically the same: Jews are an alien presence, always and everywhere unwelcome guests in those lands unfortunate enough to host them.Which is why Trump’s attempt to implicate American Jews in his bigoted harangue against the Democratic congresswomen is so pernicious."
DARIA’S GRANDFATHER, A SHIP CAPTAIN FOR 30YEARS, HELPED OVER 600 JEWISH RUSSIANS RESETTLE IN ISRAEL. #Aliyah🇮🇱💫Introducing our new CLEAVE MEDIA co-host, Daria from Hamburg (originally, from Odessa), who migrated to Germany in 1996 when Chancellor Kohl enacted the Kontingentflucht to resurrect the Jewish population of Germany. Daria's family was around 253 on this invitation list.Exception to the norm, invited Jewish families did not need to know German and children were given special care to integrate into the schools. Daria arrived knowing no German at the age of 9. Her Grandfather, Alexander, born in 1935, worked as a ship captain for more than 30 years and helped over 600 Soviet Jews emigrate from Odessa to Haifa, Israel, by ship.Daria's Grandmother, Renata, born in 1938 in Georgia, an engineer and engineering professor, curates music programs in Hamburg. Through this work, she was able to raise the funds to erect a monument to the 20 children murdered in the Holocaust, Kinder vom Bullenhuser Damm. There are twenty streets in the area, one named for each child.----Learn more:The story of the Children of Bullenhuser DammIn the night from 20 to 21 April 1945, SS troops murdered 20 Jewish children and at least 28 adults in the basement of the building at Bullenhuser Damm 92-94. Before their murder the children, from Poland, Slovakia, Italy, France and the Netherlands, had suffered agonizing medical experiments as prisoners in Neuengamme Concentration Camp. In order to cover up the experiments during the clearance of the camp, the children had to die. Relatives of the children only found out about their fate many decades later – or not at all. Every year on 20 April many relatives from all over the world come to remember the children in the school at Bullenhuser Damm in Hamburg., post-Soviet AliyahThe 1990s post-Soviet Aliyah began en masse in late 1980s when the government of Mikhail Gorbachev opened the borders of the USSR and allowed Jews to leave the country for Israel. #Soviet #Gorbachev #Jews #Israel #Germany
Is there hope to end anti-Israel bias at the UN Human Rights Council?“There needs to be a groundswell of activism and advocacy demanding an elimination of this gross form of discrimination against Jewish state, and by extension, the Jewish people,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of independent human-rights group U.N. Watch.BY ELIANA RUDEE the March rally and campaign, the U.N. vote later that week saw several countries suddenly change their positions on the annual votes—to greater support for Israel. For the first time in history, Britain voted “no” to all four Arab-sponsored resolutions tabled under Agenda Item 7. Denmark, a new member of the Council, fully backed Israel on the four votes, a marked departure from its usual policy in U.N. bodies. On the annual resolution calling to prosecute Israeli soldiers for “war crimes,” Brazil, Hungary and Ukraine changed their votes to “no.” On the annual resolution calling on Israel to surrender the Golan to Syria, Japan and Brazil changed their votes to “no.”
THE BACKLASH OF SECONDARY ANTI-SEMITISMIn a German study, the notion of ongoing Holocaust-related suffering among Jews apparently increased feelings of anti-Semitism.TOM JACOBSOCT 26, 2009"Members of aggrieved ethnic groups regularly organize rituals aimed at reminding the world of the injustices their people have suffered. Remembrances of the Holocaust, the Armenian genocide and other massive tragedies serve as eloquent proclamations that the pain persists, as the wounds of the past have yet to heal.But what if these reminders simply breed more prejudice?"
SECONDARY ANTISEMITISMJew-hatred related to the Holocaust.BY MANFRED GERSTENFELD MAY 1, 2019"Many Europeans don’t want to know that antisemitism is an integral part of their societies’ cultures. This does not mean that there are no Europeans who fight antisemitism or that most Europeans are antisemites. Yet the above shows a different perspective on the way in which European culture is interwoven with antisemitism. Even the genocide of Jews in Europe has led to new forms of antisemitism, not only in the perpetrator countries, but also elsewhere."
Comment: Anti-Semitism was rife when Ireland shut the door to Jews seeking refugeKevin Myers' column this week about highly-paid ­Jewish broadcasters sparked ­controversy and has stirred up memories of the ­shameful history of ­anti-Semitism in IrelandKim Bielenberg August 6 2017 Holocaust survivor Alfred Leicht, whose family were all murdered, was almost 18 when he came to Ireland as part of this group.He was damning about Ireland's approach to the refugees crisis in his memoir: "It is one of history's mocking ironies that inward-looking Ireland offered us, 100 dispersed and displaced orphans from war-torn Europe, only conditional and temporary status in their land. Yet masses of their own poverty-stricken citizens had emigrated to America during the 19th and the 20th centuries to seek a better life.The United Irishman described thousands of Jews in London "mostly of phenomenal ugliness and dirt, (who) had come out of their East End dens at the summons of their rabbis". He said it was "evident that they detested soap and water".The low point for the community in Ireland came in 1904 with the Limerick Pogrom against Jews, encouraged by the Redemptorist Catholic Priest Fr John Creagh.He told his congregation: "The Jews were once chosen by God…. But they rejected Christ, they crucified him. They called down the curse of his precious blood on their heads."Fr Creagh warned that people in the city were becoming the "slaves of Jew usurers".Limerick attacks on Jews"Nowadays, they dare not kidnap and slay Christian children, but they will not hesitate to expose them to a longer and even more cruel martyrdom by taking the clothes off their back…"This prompted attacks on Jews in the city, with stones and mud thrown at them, and windows broken. Up to 200 took part in the violence early in January 1904 - and there were 40 further attacks in April before the trouble died down.While Arthur Griffith supported the boycott, the Land League campaigner Michael Davitt condemned the "barbarous malignancy of anti-Semitism".Some of the accusations levelled at Jews were absurdly far-fetched. They were accused, without any evidence, of trying to grab Irish farms.They were even falsely accused by an official at Dublin Castle of "collecting from hotels... used tea leaves, drying them, mixing with them with deleterious drugs, and selling the compound to the poorer classes".This product was said to be "injurious to health, even producing nervous disease and insanity".Jews were blamed for corrupting society, including women's fashion. At one stage, the Bishop of Limerick Denis Hallinan blamed Jews for introducing into Christian society "dangerous and indecent dresses".
WoMen Fight AntiSemitism speaks with Daria further about her experiences migrating to Germany at 9, the nature of the Jewish community and German Russian community in Hamburg, along with issues related to Germany's police and Merkel's refusal to ban Hezbollah.
