ANTISEMITIC EXPRESSION: DEMONIZATION;
DELEGITIMIZATION
3/11/16 – University of New Orleans SJP held the event, “Pinkwashing: What it is & Why it Matters.” The term “pinkwashing” is a demonizing term that insinuates Israel is malevolently representing itself as a safe haven for LGBQT people in order to hide its “crimes” against Palestinians. The advertisement for the event additionally delegitimized Israel, falsely accusing the state of “apartheid.”

COMPARING JEWS TO NAZIS;
DEMONIZATION
11/9/15 – Canadian-Israeli journalist David Sheen spoke about racism and homophobia in Israel. In his talk, Sheen employed several antisemitic tropes: Sheen falsely accused Israel of being a racist state whose leadership aspired towards a “theocracy” whose goal is to ignite a “race war” through violent means, including by “burning babies,” firebombing, stabbing attacks and other acts of brutality towards Arabs, black Africans and LGBTQ individuals; he demonized sacred Jewish texts, including the Torah, Talmud, and Tanya, accusing them of being deeply racist and calling for the brutal murder of non-Jews and homosexuals; and he compared “racist” Jews who believe that Jews should not intermarry to Nazis, calling efforts to prevent intermarriage “a eugenics program.” Sheen’s talk was sponsored by University of New Orleans SJP.
