Bar-Ilan University study reveals manifestations of anti-Semitism in Australian public schools

Post by Guest on Thu Jan 19, 2017 6:09 pm

Jewish students in Australian public schools are exposed to anti-Semitic, racist bullying, according to the findings of a new study presented Monday at an international conference on anti-Semitism at Bar-Ilan University.  

The two-day conference, focusing on the rising threat of anti-Semitism and the struggle to combat it, marked the 20th anniversary of the passing of Israel’s 6th President, Chaim Herzog. The gathering was organized by Bar-Ilan’s Aharon and Rachel Dahan Center for Culture, Society and Education in the Sephardic Heritage, the World Zionist Organization, and the University’s Sal Van Gelder Institute for Holocaust Research.

The manifestations of anti-Semitism in Australian public schools were discovered by Prof. Zehavit Gross, Director of the Sal Van Gelder Institute for Holocaust Research, while she was conducting an unrelated study on public schools in Sydney and Melbourne with her colleague, Prof. Suzanne Rutland, of the University of Sydney.

Professors Gross and Rutland set out to research Special Religious Education (SRE) and its effectiveness on Jewish students.  “As a researcher, I was convinced that a half hour of study per week is ineffective and meaningless,” said Prof. Gross in addressing the conference with Prof. Rutland.  Instead, Gross and Rutland found that students and parents consider SRE very successful, and they were eager to find out the secret to this success.  “To our amazement, both primary and high school Jewish students in state schools spontaneously told us that they loved to attend SRE classes because they found them to be a ‘safe place’ in the face of the anti-Semitism they were experiencing on the playground.”

Illustrating the common expressions of classical antisemitism encountered on the playground in elementary schools, they quoted one student, who said, “If you are Jewish you are teased. They call you stingy. They throw five cents at you. Or they throw money on the ground and call out ‘who is the Jew?’ Or they will say: ‘That’s a Jew nose.’ They say things about payot [sidelocks]. Or they take a pair of scissors, pretend they are cutting something and say ‘do you want another circumcision?” At the high school level this can develop into an additional layer of anti-Zionism, which is at times reinforced by teachers in the classroom.  Jewish students are perceived as Zionists and supporters of Israel, and the anti-Semitism takes on a political connotation. “They are persecuted because of Israel, because of the occupation and because of Israel’s treatment of Palestinians,” said Prof. Gross.

Professors Gross and Rutland believe that additional research needs to be conducted into the role the schoolyard has played in fostering anti-Semitism

According to the researchers, many Jewish students in government primary and high schools prefer to hide the fact that they are Jewish in order to avoid bullying.  Their parents minimize the significance of the verbal attacks and prefer to downplay them so as not to arouse attention.  Teachers and principals deny that there is a problem.  So Jewish students wind up accepting verbal bullying, which they believe they have to adjust to as normal behavior because the undercurrent of anti-Semitism on the playground is endemic and longstanding.
Increasing levels of anti-Semitism in the general community have imposed a huge security burden on the Australian Jewish community. In 2015 the government allocated funds to 54 schools at risk of attack or violence stemming from racial or religious intolerance. Seventeen were Jewish schools, which require armed guards in both Sydney and Melbourne, even though Jews constitute only 0.4% of the population.

Gross and Rutland recommended a number of steps to overcome this problem, including educating teachers to better understand cultural diversity, taking action when a problem is discovered, and educating principals and teachers on how to respond in a positive fashion to problems of racial discrimination.

Additional conference speakers discussed the phenomenon of denial or downplaying the level of anti-Semitism. In addressing the opening session of the conference, Dahan Center Director and former MK Dr. Shimon Ohayon said, “The fight against anti-Semitism must be fought across the board – from parliamentary legislation in Israel and around the world to vigorous public diplomacy programs that train our people to stand up to the virulent hatred being espoused across college campuses around the world.  Our greatest weakness lies in our inability to fight back against the massive hate machine.” Together with WZO Vice Chairman Yaakov Hagoel, Dahan led the Knesset lobby against anti-Semitism.

WZO Vice Chairman Hagoel said,”The World Zionist Organization will continue to stand firmly against acts of anti-Semitism which are increasing every year in both frequency and violence. Anti-Semitism has become routine in Diaspora Jewish communities such that Jewish identity is threatened, Jewish symbols are concealed, and fear of violent anti-Semitism is heightened.  In an era of global terror blended with deep anti-Semitism, at a time when the Internet is a free platform for spreading hatred, our commitment to combating this phenomenon alongside our brethren in the Diaspora is reinforced

People like this are bad news, Not all Jews, but ones like this guy they go out of their way to not integrate, 100's of times worse than the Muslim community when it comes to adopting Australian culture and values. which doesn't stop them being Jews any more than it does Muslims.

Really Secularist NEED to stand up to these Bullies they cry anti-Semitism from being treated like everyone else.
the kids were not Anti French for offering me Snails and frog legs. Nor were we anti-Korea teasing them about dog meat. it is all part of the integration game. Aussies tease each other constantly about any and everything. Aussie on Aussie teasing is the most brutal since it is more personal.

And If they did integrate they would fight back, jokes about kangaroos/skippy, convicts, terrible anglo food.
The best come back I can remember in High school was from a Korean kid, when teased about dog meat his response "FIDO YUM YUM".
lol!

And there you have it.
Jewish children are suffering antisemitism with evidence and its being ignored and even worse now blaming Jews as the problem. Seems antisemitism in Australia is far worse than I thought

Increasing levels of anti-Semitism in the general community have imposed a huge security burden on the Australian Jewish community. In 2015 the government allocated funds to 54 schools at risk of attack or violence stemming from racial or religious intolerance.

Incidents of antisemitism

The twelve month period ending 30 September 2016 saw a 10% increase over the previous year in antisemitic incidents in Australia involving threats or acts of violence.


The ECAJ, Jewish community roof bodies in each state and other Jewish community groups logged a total of 210 antisemitic incidents during the period, including physical assaults, abuse and harassment, vandalism, graffiti, hate and threats communicated directly by email, letters, telephone calls, and leaflets. This compares to a total of 190 such incidents logged by the same sources over the preceding twelve month period.


Attacks (assault, abuse, vandalism and graffiti) accounted for 70% of the total number of incidents, with 149 incidents. Two of these categories, indeed, the most serious - physical assaults and abuse/harassment of Jews - comprised 45% of the total incidents. Threats (email, letters, telephone, leaflets) accounted for 30% of the total number of incidents, with 61 incidents. There is also much anecdotal evidence of incidents which go unreported.


Overall, there was an increase in physical assaults, vandalism, graffiti, hate emails, threatening phone calls and antisemitic leaflets; and a decrease in face-to-face verbal abuse/harassment of Jews, and in postal mail.


Perpetrators

For the first time, the report includes information on the ethnic composition of the perpetrators of some types of antisemitic incidents. Of the 91 incidents of assault and abuse in Sydney and Melbourne, there were 43 incidents where the ethnicity of the perpetrator(s) was identified in the reporting of the incident. This information was counted and noted. Many incidents had multiple perpetrators. Assault and abuse in other states were excluded.


The result is that of the 72 perpetrators whose ethnicity was logged, these were composed of 34 Caucasian, 31 Middle Eastern, 5 Maori/Polynesian and 2 African. In terms of percentage, 47% of the perpetrators were Caucasian, 43% Middle Eastern and 61% "Other."


However, the breakdown between Sydney and Melbourne tells a different story. In Sydney, it comprised Caucasian (17 perpetrators) at 39%, and Middle Eastern (22 perpetrators) at 51%. In Melbourne, it comprised Caucasian (17 perpetrators) at 58%, and Middle Eastern (9 perpetrators) at 31%. In both Sydney and Melbourne, "Other" comprised 10%.


It is to be noted that this data only applies to 43 out of the 91 incidents of assault and abuse in Sydney and Melbourne - that is, 47% of the incidents. Therefore the data only tells a partial story. It does, however, provide some indication of the composition of the ethnic sources of antisemitic incidents.


As to gender, all perpetrators of assault and abuse in Melbourne were male, and in Sydney all but four were male.


Examples

Physical assaults included incidents motivated by racial hatred where Jews were punched and kicked - for example, a 22-year-old Jewish man was punched in the neck and called a "Fucking Jew" while walking home from synagogue. There was a marked increase in "egging" - targeting and assaulting Jews by throwing eggs at them. Eggings occurred predominantly as Jews walked to and from synagogue on Friday evenings and Saturdays in Melbourne.


Abuse and harassment often occur around synagogues and other Jewish centres. Many incidents include people doing drive-bys and yelling out abuse such as "Fucking Jews" often accompanied with gun/shooting gestures made by hand. Other incidents occur elsewhere - for example, some Jewish school students were abused at a train station, being told, "I'm going to slit your throats you dirty Jews."


Incidents of vandalism included the firebombing of two vehicles, smashing the glass door of a synagogue, carving "Kill Jews" into a desk at a university, as well as multiple instances of destroying the plastic conduit pipes of an eruv. Graffiti usually included swastikas invariably with the word "Jew," "Fuck Jews," "Jewboy" and "Die Jues [sic] die" and the like.


Email hate included threats, denigration, Holocaust denial and the like - for example, "the game is up and you all must prepare for the consequences," "the jew tribe that infests society world wide [...] Zionist jooze are the scum of the earth" and "Holohoax. Death to jews." A rabbi received a spate of emails, some with images that had been photo-shopped to make the rabbi's head appear in Nazi concentration camp uniform and in a Nazi crematorium.


Phone calls were usually made to synagogues or other Jewish institutions, leaving hate messages such as, "Bang bang", "Fucking Jews ... you are all going to die" and "If Hitler had lived another 10 years he would have killed all of you." A letter was posted to a Jewish organisation which included threats to kill Jews.
Holocaust-denying leaflets were distributed at several universities. Neo-Nazi leaflets, calling for the killing of Jews, were distributed at universities, Jewish businesses and elsewhere through the hacking of printers by a neo-Nazi in the United States. The text of one leaflet included the words, "White man are you sick and tired of the Jews destroying your country ..." Another leaflet stated "one by one he pulled the trigger of his Saiga after pointing its barrel towards the head of a filthy Jew."

WHY should Jews get special treatment?
they currently have it the same as everyone else.
they are protect the same if there are threats.


But they are Bullshitting themselves with the idea they are being targeted for teasing because they are Jewish
They would be teased anyway everyone is.

How is being on the end of abuse and hate special treatment?

There you have it, making excuses for the allowance of antisemitism, because apparently we have new revisionism, the holocaust was actually special treatment for the Jews, according to the world of Veya

To be honest
A Pommie would get targeted for being a pommie, more than a jew is targeted for being a jew

So you back bullying with name calling now?
Name calling based around their identity?
So if a black child is teased about his skin colour that is okay with you and not racist?

Sorry are you a teacher?

Because if you are, you should be sacked

Suspect

Good one, dodgery Thorin...

Wanting to impose your foreign-based Zionist-press-fuelled interventionist nonsense onto a foreign country..

Hoping to cure some imaginary "anti-semitism" problem, that in reality most likely is a figment of the self-declared "victims" self-imposed paranoia.


Attacking the innocent majority on the dubious say-so of one individual ???

Sounds a lot like "totalitarian" based elitist policy making, to be honest..

Somebody should tell that kid to grow a backbone, and develop a thicker skin.      pirat

So now its imaginary?

Really, so there is no hate crimes or antisemitism, all the evidence is made up

Two so called people who claimed to stand against racism, unless the victims are Jews and then even worse one invokes a typical conspiracy of zionism behind the rise in hate crimes against Jews, claiming they are made up. Not based on any evidence, but a clear hate of Jews it seems

You cannot make it up how conditioned some of the left have become in hating Jews

What next, are you both going to deny the Holocaust?

The pair of you should be ashamed, but why would you when you deny hate crimes to Jews. Only people who are antisemitic would make such a false disgusting claim

Now, disprove the evidence I have presented

No dickhead but you cant make up how gullible and biased some people are that they believe one of the richest communities with some of the greatest representation in politics, media and business is Suffering from unreasonable targeted discrimination.

You have to Stop talking about Hijabs and head scarf then or your a hypocrite. since YOU are specifically targeting your discrimination, Implying that all Muslims women that wear it are weak women being dominated or indoctrinated.

Jews have been indoctrinated to think they are being targeted Cool Cool Cool

So no evidence to refute the evidence of antisemitism

Just a load of bullshit as per usual

I am not discriminating against anyone, as i am not telling them what to do but rightly being critical of something that oppresses Muslims women, which you are defending.
So it does not make it hypocritical, but its funny you back the same view of islamists, you want to make it a criminal hate crime to be critical of aspects of islam, by attempting to make criticism of islam, as comparable to antisemitism.

Thanks for showing that, and am glad all can read you want to make it criminal to be critical of religious dogma. No different than Muslim countries, who have tried to pass a Un resolution to make it a criminal offense to be critical of Islam

Thanks

I have zero interest in knowing your personal life

Thanks for offering, but I am only interested in getting to know people i respect

Sorry, you do not qualify

Maybe when you start showing respect to others, you will earn mine and I will be interested to know more

For now, its irrelevant
