Islamic Anti-Semitism

For some time I have been concerned about survey results that record a definite anti-Semitic tone in the European Union and also in Germany - mostly under the title of anti-Israelism. There is a limit to the freedom of expression and the freedom of the press in Germany when they incite hatred against a part of the population, attack the human worth of others or approve, deny or play down the Nazi holocaust. Anti-Semitic propaganda is unfortunately back on the agenda. In Turkey where, according to the official line, there has never been anti-Semitism and never will be, anti-Semitism is in fact a well known phenomenon. The establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 had a direct effect on the consolidation of anti-Semitism in the Islamic world as a whole.

The film "Wider das Vergessen" (literally: Against Forgetting), Johannes Facius presents in an impressive way the close relationship between the anti-Semitism of the Nazi era and the anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism of today. We would like to suggest after prayerful consideration how this film can be used to reach those with influence in our society: public performances, private showings (in churches, home-groups, clubs, etc.), in schools and training colleges, etc.

Prayer:
· That anti-Semitism, in whatever form, cannot take hold once again in Germany. Fight against it - above all in prayer.
· Anti-Semitic propaganda that contravenes the basis of our constitution should be exposed and legally challenged when necessary. - G.B. -
