Defamation (2009) - What is anti-Semitism today?



Published on 16 Dec 2012
DEFAMATION (Hebrew: השמצה; translit. Hashmatsa) is a 2009 documentary film by award-winning Israeli filmmaker Yoav Shamir who embarks on a provocative -- and at times irreverent -- quest to answer the question, "What is anti-Semitism today?" Is it a dangerous and immediate threat? Or is it a scare tactic used by Zionist partisans to unjustly discredit everyone that disagrees with them?

In particular, the film examines the way perceptions of anti-Semitism affect Israeli and U.S. politics. Speaking with an array of people from across the political spectrum (including the head of the Anti-Defamation League and its fiercest critic, author Norman Finkelstein) and traveling to places like Auschwitz (alongside Israeli school kids) and Brooklyn (to explore reports of violence against Jews), Shamir discovers the realities of anti-Semitism today.

Shamir decided to make this film, that won Best Documentary Feature Film at the 2009 Asia Pacific Screen Awards, after a critic of an earlier film accused him of anti-Semitism. His findings are shocking, enlightening and -- surprisingly -- often wryly funny. At the beginning of the film, Shamir states that as an Israeli he has never experienced anti-Semitism himself and wants to learn more about it since references to anti-Semitism in countries all over the world are common in the Israeli media.

Today, we are happy to bring you this very enlightening Israeli film in the spirit of Nostra Aetate (Latin: In our Age), Second Vatican Council's Declaration on the Relation of the Church with Non-Christian Religions, promulgated on October 28, 1965, by Pope Paul VI. The Declaration decries all displays of anti-Semitism made at any time by anyone.

Please help spread the word about NAZI TACTICS used by CHICAGO MAYOR RAHM EMANUEL including UNLAWFUL EVICTION to stifle dissent from Occupy Wall Street.

Matthew Libman worked with civil rights leaders to push for the Volcker Rule implementation (forcing banks to stop gambling and resume lending). Jesse Jackson Sr. and Ben Jealous, the president of the NAACP, leaned on Sanford Weil (Citigroup Chairman) and Barack Obama, and they won.

Later in 2012 Matt Libman hosted some out of state NATO campers -- legally and permitted in his own back yard with permission of neighbor, slumlords Jason Ticus and his father Gary Ticus. He also scheduled to release a documentary film about Jesse Jackson's 1984 presidential bid, and had him scheduled to attend a panel discussion with campers and protesters -- for free in his backyard -- during the NATO summit.

Instead of having a great event paying homage to his friend and mentor, Rahm Emanuel forced a condemnation of Matt Libman's home. Matt returned home the evening before his documentary premier to find his windows boarded, doors and gates chained, and a parking ticket in his windshield wiper -- while parked in his regular space. With zero notice.

Everybody knows that Jews kidnap orphans, torture them, and drink their blood in a Satanic ritual. My story is one of millions. I am just one in a million that I lived to tell it. Type "Jews drink blood" into Google and follow the link to Godlike Productions and read my personal testimonial as a victim of this horrendous practice.

The jewish sick evil practice of sucking infant penis is masked as a ritual called mohel, but judging by interviews of rabbi's who regularly perform these sick acts on innocent newborns, one can easily determine that these pedophile jew fuckers actually consider it sexually satisfying.
But then as long as this practice is carried out against vile kike jews one should not even be concerned one iota!
Leave Whites alone you Cock Sucking jews or else war!
