Israelis are expressing increasing concern over the significant numbers of people in the various “Occupy” Wall Street protests expressing extremely Anti-Semitic messages.

For instance, this L.A. teacher taking part the Occupy protest blames the Jews for economic ills and says “the Zionist Jews need to be run out of this country:”

There were concerns Monday night from U.S. Jewish leaders that some of the protesters were expressing anti-Semitic messages. Witnesses say they’ve seen demonstrators carrying signs that read, “Jews Control Wall Street” and similar statements circulating online.

In Canada, large numbers marched with the “anti-zionist” contingent whose flagstaffs had CAIA written on them – Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid. Representatives from the teachers’ union who were interviewed also mentioned in that their union is planning to vote in favour of a Boycott and Divest from Israel campaign in the next few weeks.

Numerous anti-Semitic incidents have been reported and caught on tape during “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrations in New York as Jews were blamed for the turmoil in America’s financial markets. In addition, anti-Israel signs were raised against “Israel’s occupation of Gaza”. The American Nazi Party has expressed its solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and commends the large number of people in the protests taking on the “Judeo-capitalists”.

One such video captures an African-American protester accusing the Jews of taking over America. “The smallest group in America controls the money, media and all other things. The fingerprints belong to the Jewish bankers. I am against Jews who rob America. They are one percent who control America. President Obama is a Jewish puppet. The entire economy is Jewish. Every federal judge in the East Coast is Jewish.”

Among the signs that could be seen in the protest were, “Gaza supports the occupation of Wall Street”, “Hitler’s Bankers”, and a sign urging people to Google the following: Wall St. Jews, Jewish billionaires, Jews & Federal Reserve Bank. In addition, the anti-Israel group Code Pink: Women for Peace was spotted.

The Emergency Committee for Israel, a Jewish-run Republican organization, released a video highlighting other anti-Semitic incidents at the “Occupy wall St.” events, and urging President Barack Obama to take a firm stand against such hateful rhetoric.

Yediot Ahronot called the anti-Semitic outbursts “hard to watch,” and as an Israeli commenter said, “It’s just like pre-World War II Nazi Germany. You think blood libels can’t happen in America?”

It has been pointed out by many media commentators that the openly anti-Semitic remain but a small portion of those participating in the Occupy Wall St. movement. However, others have noted that Nazi anti-Semitism started out as a fringe phenomenon in Germany before eventually defining that nation’s domestic agenda in the 1940s.

Israel Today Magazine notes that “More than the few Occupy Wall St. anti-Semites themselves, it is the lack of a clear and firm repudiation of their hateful rhetoric by the mainstream American media and political leaders that has a growing number of Israelis and Jews on edge.”
