Simon Wiesenthal Center Urges Muslim Leaders to Join in Denouncing the presentation of Nazi-like Caricatures at Stanford University Markaz Center
May 8, 2019
The Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) is calling on Muslims to join in the SWC denunciation of cartoons and flyers depicting Jews as inhuman monsters:
“This is the lead-up to the so-called Anti-Zionism is Not Antisemitism ‘Teach-in’ at Stanford’s Markaz Center, timed for Israel’s Independence Day and coinciding with Ramadan,” said Rabbi Abraham Cooper, the Center’s Associate Dean and Director of Global Social Action for the leading international Jewish Human Rights NGO.

“The sponsors and backers of this lurid display of Jew hate include Students for Justice in Palestine and the so-called Jewish Voice for Peace have taken a page directly from Nazi Germany’s anti-Semitic genocidal propaganda from the 1930s and 40s (see above),” Cooper charged.
“To compound this Hatefest's wrapping itself in the hallowed halls of one of America’s leading universities, is the outrageous co-opting of the Yiddish phrase, ‘We will outlive them’ shouted by Jews seconds before they were massacred by the Nazis and their collaborators during the World War II Holocaust.“
“The Jewish people has outlived Nazi Germany and returned to its ancestral homeland in the Land of Israel and will outlive the deadly Jew-hatred against American Jews at prayer in Pittsburgh and Poway.”
“The Center reiterates its call to University officials at Stanford and across the US to continue to act with impunity against anti-Semites who continue to rear their ugly heads on campuses from coast to coast, intimidating and denigrating Jewish students, the Jewish State and Judaism," Cooper concluded.
