screenshot uit "De Zaak Menten" [NPO2]" 'Menten Affair': How Dutch journalist brought down Nazi war criminal "- By Cnaan LIPHSHIZ - FEBRUARY 24, 2017 - JTA

Forty years after his reporting exposed one of the worst war criminals in Dutch history, Hans Knoop is still celebrated in his native Netherlands as a hero.

Last year, more than a million television viewers watched a public broadcaster's historical period drama on how Knoop, a Dutch Jewish journalist, unmasked the art collector Pieter Menten in 1976 as a monster who murdered hundreds of Polish Jews and stole their property with help from German Nazis. It was the highest rating for such a production in the Netherlands.

"The Menten Affair" will have its U.S. debut March 5 at the East Bay International Jewish Film Festival. Knoop, 73, will be on hand to introduce the film and answer audience questions. (Video Trailer) ...

Doel Unia (illustr.) [Website UNIA]Het Forum der Joodse Organisaties heeft met verbijstering kennis genomen van een, naar Joods Actueel, uitgelekte email vanwege UNIA - jurist J.O.

In de interne mail betreurt hij dat de rechtbank in Antwerpen een door hemzelf namens UNIA ingediende klacht wegens antisemitisme en aanzetten tot moord heeft gehonoreerd met een voorwaardelijke gevangenisstraf van zes maanden voorwaardelijk en een geldboete.

De Palestijnse haatzaaier had tijdens een pro-Palestijnse demonstratie in Borgerhout bedreigende anti-Joodse leuzen gescandeerd.

Het FJO diende daarop een melding in bij UNIA dat uiteindelijk besloot zich burgerlijk partij te stellen en tegen de dader aangifte bij justitie te doen.

Uit de onderschepte mail blijkt dat UNIA-jurist Johan Otte die de klacht indiende, anders dan het FJO, vurig hoopte en rekende op vrijspraak voor de haatzaaier. Hij kwalificeert de uitspraak van de rechter en veroordeling als " hoogst problematisch " en het vonnis als "kromspraak in plaats van rechtspraak".

Uit de mail blijkt zonneklaar dat de sympathie en empathie van UNIA nadrukkelijk meer naar de dader uitgaat dan naar zijn beoogde slachtoffers. ...

to be "the Singapore of the Middle East," or to more terrorism and war? (illustr.)"The Offer that Turns the Gaza Strip into Singapore" - by Bassam Tawil

- Last week, Hamas received an offer that no sane entity would turn down. The offer did not come from Hamas's allies in Iran and the Islamic world. The offer, to turn the impoverished Gaza Strip into "the Singapore of the Middle East," came from Israel.

- "The Gazans must understand that Israel, which withdrew from the Gaza Strip to the last millimeter, is not the source of their suffering -- it is the Hamas leadership, which doesn't take their needs into consideration... The moment Hamas gives up its tunnels and rockets, we'll be the first to invest." — Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

- Hamas does not want a new "Singapore" in the Middle East. Hamas wants Israel to disappear from the face of the earth. The welfare of the Palestinians living under its rule is the last thing on the mind of Hamas. The dispute is not about improving the living conditions of Palestinians, as far as Hamas is concerned. Instead, it is about the very existence of Israel.

- Hamas deserves credit for one thing: its honesty concerning its intentions to destroy Israel and kill as many Jews as possible. Hamas does not want 40,000 new jobs for the unemployed poor Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. It would rather see these unemployed Palestinians join its ranks and become soldiers in the jihad to replace Israel with an Islamic empire. ...

Nikki Haley, Amerikaanse VN-ambassadeur [screenshot YouTube]Nikki Haley, Amerikaanse VN-ambassadeur, tijdens haar eerste persconferentie na de maandelijkse vergadering van de Veiligheidsraad van de Verenigde Naties.:

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley, Feb. 16, 2017:

"I just put out to the members of the Seucrity Council to help me understand: When we have so much going on in the world, why is it that every single month we're going to sit down and have a hearing where all they do is obsess over Israel?"

The first thing I want to do is talk about what we just saw in there. The Security Council just finished its regular monthly meeting on Middle East issues. It’s the first meeting like that that I’ve attended, and I have to say it was a bit strange. The Security Council is supposed to discuss how to maintain international peace and security. But at our meeting on the Middle East, the discussion was not about Hizballah’s illegal build-up of rockets in Lebanon. It was not about the money and weapons Iran provides to terrorists. It was not about how we defeat ISIS. It was not about how we hold Bashar al-Assad accountable for the slaughter of hundreds and thousands of civilians.
No, instead, the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East. I am new around here, but I understand that’s how the Council has operated, month after month, for decades. ...

Yair Lapid [Flash 90]"Lapid: Stop supporting the extreme left" 
Yair Lapid sends scathing letter to Belgian ambassador after Belgian PM meets with Breaking the Silence and B'tselem.

Yesh Atid Chairman Yair Lapid expressed surprised at Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel's meetings with leading figures in radical left anti-Zionist NGOs Breaking the Silence and B'tselem during Michel's recent visit to Israel.

In a letter to the Belgian ambassador, Lapid wrote, "My son serves in the army, he's in a tank unit. He's a good kid with strong morals - just like his friends and commanders. During the past few years, they've spent a good deal of time saving injured Syria children and bringing them to Israeli hospitals. They are patriots and they are law-abiding."

Lapid also called on the Belgian ambassador to stop Belgium's support for organizations which malign IDF soldiers. ...

Voorzitter van het Europees Parlement Antonio Tajani"Europees Parlement herdenkt slachtoffers Holocaust" - 25-01-2017 - EUR. PARL.

Vertegenwoordigers van de Joodse gemeenschappen in Europa, EP-leden en anderen kwamen vandaag in het EP bijeen ter gelegenheid van de Internationale dag voor de herdenking van de Holocaust. Ongeveer 6 miljoen Joden kwamen om in de genocide gepleegd door nazi-Duitsland. EP-Voorzitter Tajani noemde de Holocaust "de ergste tragedie in de Europese geschiedenis," en zei verder: "Herinneren is niet alleen om te herdenken. Het is een cruciaal proces om te voorkomen dat dezelfde fouten worden herhaald."

Tajani toonde zich bezorgd over het voortbestaan van haatmisdaden tegen Joden en van de krimpende Joodse bevolking in Europa.
Hij onderstreepte het belang van "het herinneren van de vreselijke fouten uit het verleden om er bij stil te staan dat Europa altijd van de geschiedenis heeft geleerd voor een toekomst gebaseerd op vrijheid, democratie en respect voor de menselijke waardigheid". ...
