Shockingly, in Belgium, history lessons about Nazism and the Holocaust are currently being used to infuse children with hatred against Israel.
The Belgian Ministry of Education funds an organization, the Special Committee for Remembrance Education(BCH), which provides teachers with ready-made templates for their history lessons. In its September issue,Joods Actueel, the largest Jewish magazine in Belgium, describes this educational material as “perverted.” The so-called Remembrance Education, the magazine writes, “has degenerated into an instrument to infect youngsters with hatred of Israel and anti-Semitism.”
One of the materials used is the cartoon “Never Again, Over Again.” It equates the treatment of the Palestinians by the Israelis today with the treatment of the Jews by the Nazis in the 1930s and 40s.
“Never Again means that what happened under Hitler should never happen again. And Over Again means that what is happening today is the same as in the past with Hitler,” the Belgian school teachers are told. “In the past, the concentration camps were fenced off with barbed wire. Today, the border between Israel and Palestine is marked with barbed wire and a wall.”
The atrocities committed by the Nazis are linked to the so-called atrocities of Israel. Teachers indoctrinated with teaching material provided by an organization that is sanctioned by the Ministry of Education, in turn indoctrinate the school children in their care.
The material of the Special Committee for Remembrance Education is frequently used by primary school teachers, who seem to have little knowledge of history. Two Belgian researchers, Jan Swerts and Kurt Monten of the Catholic College of Limburg, found that young people studying to become teachers know amazingly little about history. Many of them were unable to tell in which century the Second World War took place. They knew hardly anything about major ideologies such as Socialism and Communism. Ten percent of them even confused Zionism with Fascism. They are easy prey for the anti-Semites who author some of the material provided by the Special Committee for Remembrance Education…

No matter how hard or how often we Muslims try, we are never able finally to end the connection our lives seem to have with the lives of the Jews. Watching Arab and Islamic television, especially during the holy month of Ramadan, brings the viewer to the inescapable conclusion that we have no real lives of our own, no unity and no value: our only motivation is having the Jews as a common enemy, with our lives dependent on them. We treat the Jews the way the rabid Christian anti-Semites treated them in the Middle Ages, blaming them for every illness, tragedy and misfortune. We blame them for the failures of Islam while only we are at fault for the catastrophes that befall us.
Almost no Ramadan evening goes by without tedious “historical” dramas on Al-Jazeera and the other Arab TV channels, whose objective is to brainwash viewers with anti-Semitic propaganda. They deal with the Jews’ denial of the Prophet Muhammad’s message, Jewish attempts to poison him and their betrayal of him at the Battle of the Trench in Al-Medina. Almost all the series’ end on the same note: the message is always that the fate of the Jews in the Palestine they stole from the Arabs will be the same as that Muhammad wreaked on them at Khybar, they will be slaughtered and their women and children will be sold into slavery…
(Bear in mind, it’s Ramadan. The great majority of the adults are fasting- not even a sip of cool water is permitted.)
Houston, Texas, August 2- It’s Al-Quds Day! The day Muslims gather together to cry of imaginary racism directed to them from the Jews. Well, actually, it’s a day to complain about the very existence of Jews and Israel, and to wish them away.
In Houston’s posh Galleria area, at the corner of Westheimer and Post Oak, dozens of Muslims and assorted useful idiots gathered in the nearly 100 degree heat and 82% humidity to protest Israel.
Cries of “Allahu Ackbar” rang through the air- cries of “No Justice, No Peace”, “Zionism is Racism”, “Israel is Racism”, “Occupation is a crime, Free Free Palestine”, and so on…the same tired chants heard every time this crew gets together. It’s kind of pathetic. The speaker will start a chant, and do his best to get the crowd whipped up and chanting along. It’s not exactly a reasoned discussion, just robotic, meaningless chanting.
Lots of hot, sweaty ladies.
This did not appear to be a very happy group.
This is what you want to wear in blistering heat. Jeans, a shirt, a sweater…then why not throw on a shawl, and top it all off with a headscarf! Looks comfy!
It’s distressing to see little girls dressed just like their mommies. Seems very close to child abuse to dress a child in such an inappropriate way.
In all seriousness, it appears that the women don’t have good sense-wrapping up like mummies in Houston’s heat and humidity is insane. Too bad their men don’t protect them better than this.
These fellows blocked the crosswalk with their banner. The policeman standing nearby didn’t seem to mind.
No rally would be complete without a Boycott Israel sign.
In order to avoid hypocrisy, the Muslims wishing to boycott Israel should start by turning in their cell phones and computers, since much of the technology involved in these products was developed by Jews in Israel.
“In a typical week the IDF coordinates the transfer of hundreds of trucks containing about 15,000 tons of supplies. During the week of May 18, 2010 there were more than 100 truckloads of animal food, 65 trucks of fruit and vegetables; 22 truckloads of sugar, some 27 truckloads of meat, poultry and fish; and 40 trucks of dairy products. At holiday times, Israel increases transfers. During the Muslim holy days of Ramadhan and Eid al-Adha, Israel shipped some 11,000 heads of cattle into the Strip.”
Ignorant, or evil?
Bottom line: a bunch of ungrateful wretches, sweltering in the miserable heat, whining about the existence of Israel. A shameful dispay.
Bonus: A couple of videos from the event. NOTE: Sound quality is dreadful, as the passing traffic makes it nearly impossible to hear the speakers. You can get a sense of the moronic chanting and remarks.

A video uploaded Wednesday shows a frenzied Arab mob targeting cars driven by Jews as they pass near Jerusalem’s Damascus (Shechem) Gate.
The video was uploaded to the “Free Qudss” account on YouTube, and to a group by a similar name on Facebook.
The text at the start of the video reads: ”Destroying the settlers cars and arrests”, and claims to have been taken near Damascus Gate.
The account’s operators and the videographers claim the events are from Tuesday evening, and that the identities of the attackers had been blurred out to protect them from being identified.
Scenes of mayhem like these are becoming increasingly frequent in Jerusalem and other parts of Israel.
Just this morning, Jewish residents of the Abu Tor neighbourhood woke up to find the tires of their cars slashed in an apparent attack by Arab extremists.
Some parts of Jerusalem have become virtually no-go areas for Jewish residents. The Mount of Olives for example, site of an ancient Jewish cemetery, has become a danger zone, with Jews afraid to approach their ancestors’ graves.
This latest video comes less than a day after a Jewish man was stabbed in the same area of Jerusalem.
This widespread grassroots terror against Jews has gone mostly unreported elsewhere in the media, and is often reported exclusively on Arutz Sheva.
