- L'antisémitisme nauséabond de Welcome To New York, Sorin Etienne (Le Figaro) - "Anne Sinclair, rebaptisée Simone et interprétée par Jacqueline Bisset, n'apparaît qu'à la moitié du film. La nouvelle de l'arrestation de son mari tombe alors qu'elle est à un dîner où on la salue comme une amie d'Israël. C'est la première d'une suite d'allusions qui confondent juifs, pouvoir et argent".

- « Welcome to New York », le scénario du pire…, Dan Franck (Ecrivain, scénariste) - "Il s'enfonce dans des images pornographiques médiocres et sans jouissance, des faits blanchis ailleurs mais condamnés ici, du mauvais spectacle, des femmes et des hommes dégradés, un antisémitisme à vomir".

   "Il y a un peu plus d'un an, Vincent Maraval, producteur et distributeur de Welcome to New York, m'a fait téléphoner par un membre de son équipe pour me proposer de rencontrer Abel Ferrara, de passage à Paris. J'ai refusé. Un peu plus tard, l'un des agents d'une actrice pressentie pour jouer le rôle de Simone m'a fait part de son désir de me voir intervenir sur un scénario qu'elle jugeait indigent. J'ai refusé.
    Quelques semaines encore, et j'ai reçu la même proposition, émise cette fois par l'un des deux producteurs du film. J'ai demandé à lire. Le scénario m'a été envoyé depuis le siège de la maison de production, Wild Bunch. Il n'était pas indigent, mais consternant. Fidèle à la parole donnée, je ne l'ai transmis à personne sinon au cul de ma poubelle. On ne fait pas un bon film avec un mauvais scénario. [...]
    Welcome to New York tourne autour du cul, du fric et du pouvoir. Il s'ouvre sur des liasses de dollars et des lingots d'or. Il s'enfonce dans des images pornographiques médiocres et sans jouissance, des faits blanchis ailleurs mais condamnés ici, du mauvais spectacle, des femmes et des hommes dégradés, un antisémitisme à vomir. C'est sale. Tout est sale. Lisible, déjà, dans le scénario, sauf les scènes de baise, qui restaient à imaginer. Tout rêve vaudra beaucoup mieux que cette réalité glauque. [...]
    Ce film a été produit non pour faire oeuvre, mais pour provoquer le scandale. Le problème, c'est que le scandale a déjà eu lieu et qu'aucune représentation ne l'égalera. Il sonne comme un règlement de comptes. D'Abel Ferrara avec lui-même, de Vincent Maraval avec le système qui le porte et le nourrit, des uns et des autres avec des violences projetées, des haines non assouvies, l'appât de ce qu'on prétendait dénoncer : le fric et le pouvoir."

- Muslims freaking over proposed law to allow Jews to pray on Temple Mount (Elder of Ziyon) - "It is funny how Arabs who are so eager to talk to the West about "rights" suddenly change their tune when the rights being talked about are Jewish rights. It is also funny how so-called "human rights" NGOs will never, ever promote the simple right of Jews to worship in their own holiest spot - even though international law would seem to clearly support such a right".

- How a single settlement apartment can be counted EIGHT TIMES by the media (Elder of Ziyon) - "In other words, the anti-settlement crowd will purposefully inflate the numbers, count a single unit multiple times, and downplay the true amount of construction to grossly exaggerate the idea that the settlers are taking over the West Bank. But don't take my word for it. Just read the fine print in Peace Now's own reports".

- A Nakba for every nation, Ben-Dror Yemini (Ynet) - "The Jews had a Nakba, so did the Palestinians, and so did the Germans. There was also a Polish Nakba, and a Hindu Nakba. Nakba was the cruel reality of that time. It was a global Nakba. For every nation, a Nakba" ; "For the sake of comparison, in contemporaneous population exchanges between Poland and Ukraine, 100,000 people died out of the 1.4 million who were expelled from their homelands. Is anyone organizing a worldwide remembrance in their name? And yet, it is the Palestinian Nakba that is remembered around the world".
http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4521063,00.html
   "The month of May had, with an interval of a few days, two milestones. On May 9, the world celebrated victory over the Germans in World War II, and on May 15, Nakba Day events were also held around the world.
    The Allied victory over Germany did not end with outpourings of reconciliation, quite the reverse. Between 12 and 16 million ethnic Germans were expelled from central European states at the end of the war and in its aftermath. Between 600,000 and two million were killed during those expulsions, which included innumerable pogroms and massacres. MV Wilhelm Gustloff, a German ship carrying refugees, was sunk in January 1945 by the Soviet navy, taking with it 9,500 souls, but who remembers? What is more, representatives of the vanquished and of the refugees were not invited to the May 9 celebrations - their narrative did not appear.
    And yet those who celebrated this great victory over evil crossed lines less than a week later to remember the great injustice that befell the Palestinians. They never dreamed of honoring the German Nakba, only the Palestinian one.
    Now and then there have been proposals to pay compensation to those exiled to Germany. The countries concerned, such as Czechoslovakia and Poland, rejected the idea outright. No one denied the brutal pogroms and expulsions. "If someone were to sue us", they made very clear, "we would demand the money from Germany as war damages." Time passed, the wounds festered, but there was no compensation, and certainly no return. The European Court of Human Rights would take up a suit brought by a deportee – and promptly reject it.
    The ethnic Germans, most of them innocent, were not the only ones who underwent forced displacement. Tens of millions in Europe and in Asia experienced same trauma in the same decade, both before and after the war's end. This is what happened to some 700,000 Palestinian Arabs.
    And this is what also happened to 850,000 Jews. The Jews had a Nakba, so did the Palestinians, and so did the Germans. There was also a Polish Nakba, and a Hindu Nakba. Nakba was the cruel reality of that time. It was a global Nakba. For every nation, a Nakba.
    According to Palestinian historian Aref al-Aref, some 13,000 Palestinian Arabs were killed in the 1948 War of Independence. We should indeed feel remorse for each death, but we should also take into account the fact that - according to impartial reports of the number of casualties, relative to the size of the population, or the number who fled or were expelled - the Palestinian Nakba was smallest of them all.
    For the sake of comparison, in contemporaneous population exchanges between Poland and Ukraine, 100,000 people died out of the 1.4 million who were expelled from their homelands. Is anyone organizing a worldwide remembrance in their name? And yet, it is the Palestinian Nakba that is remembered around the world.
    The Palestinians suffered. Every expellee suffered, paying the price for the actions of their leaders. The Palestinians had chosen Haj Amin al-Husseini to lead them, and growing evidence has been uncovered in recent years of his involvement in the extermination of the Jews.
    Al-Husseini made clear that "the basic condition of our cooperation with the Germans was the freedom to exterminate the Jews of Palestine and the Arab world." He was one of the originators of the "Farhud" in Iraq, the first Nazi-inspired pogrom against the Jews in an Arab state. He worked against a deal to secure the release of Jewish children. He was the creator of "Operation Atlas" of 1944, which apparently included a plan to poison a quarter of a million Jews living in Palestine. He was not the only Arab leader of the time to identify with the Nazis – Fawzi al-Qawuqji and others did exactly the same.
    Here and there one can hear claims that there is no connection between the problem of the Palestinian refugees and that of the Jewish refugees from Arab states. This is a ridiculous claim. A series of pogroms directed against the Jews in 1940s - primarily in 1948 in Aden, Syria, Libya, Iraq and Morocco - were a combination of anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism. Similarly, the Arab League decided in the same year to freeze Jews' bank accounts and to confiscate their money to fund the war effort against "Zionist aspirations in Palestine." This was the Arab struggle, managed by the Arab League and the Arab Higher Committee, and headed by al-Husseini.
    So there is indeed something absurd about the claim of "no connection". The Palestinian problem is commemorated because the Arab world has systematically refused any offer of restoration. The Arab states even opposed UN General Assembly resolution 194, which offered the possibility of some kind of Palestinian return to their former homeland under certain conditions, on the grounds that it included recognition of a Jewish state under the Partition Plan.
    In recent years, the exact same resolution has become a weapon for the Arab states in seeking to implement a mass Palestinian return, even though there is no historical precedence for a mass return, never mind any right to one. In any event, resolution 194 was just one in a series. Resolutions 393, 394 and 513, which were subsequently passed and which hold a similar legal status, transfer responsibility for the absorption of the refugees to the Arab states. Who knew? Who remembers?
    And thus those who participated in the Nakba commemorations last week are not serving to implement a solution to the problem. They are only serving a propagandist narrative that perpetuates the problem and cultivates the illusion of a return. The Arab world has made it clear time and again – the demand for a right of return has one objective, namely, the destruction of the State of Israel.
    Despite such obvious facts about its origin, the Palestinian Nakba has become, even in the eyes of certain academics, "the greatest crime of the modern age." The lie has triumphed. On campuses in the United States, anti-Israel students distribute mock eviction notices in dorms, in order to depict the criminal deportations by Israel.
    Most students do identify with the victims, and here they do not know the basic facts. They don't know about the Jewish and global Nakbas; they don’t know about the connection between the Arabs and the Nazis. They don’t commemorate the German Nakba, as Germany was the aggressor, but they do commemorate the Palestinian Nakba, despite the fact that the Arab side was also the antagonist.
    There has to be reconciliation; there has to be recognition of injustice. Vaclav Havel, during his time as the Czech president, made a noble gesture and apologized for the atrocities conducted by the Czechs against innocent Germans. Israel, like Havel, needs to ask for forgiveness that for the suffering that it too has caused to the innocent. Forgiveness. Not compensation, and not return. And one must hope that the Arab world can ask for forgiveness for chasing out its Jews and for seizing their property, for calling for their destruction and for its cooperation with part of the Nazi leadership.
    Recognition of injustice has to be on a human, not political, plain. In London and in Moscow they did not adopt the German narrative for May 9, nor is there any reason to adopt Arab narrative when standing in the Middle East. Reconciliation is not achieved through propagandist lies that turn the birth of the State of Israel into a crime. Reconciliation is only achieved when the truth wins out."

- The Nakba − perpetuating a lie, Moshe Arens (Haaretz) - "Only once the Palestinians recognize that wars and terrorism that they initiated are the root cause of their own suffering and the suffering of others will become possible to arrive at a true peace in the Middle East".

- Israel has little to fear from the International Criminal Court, Anshel Pfeffer (Haaretz) - "The ICC’s former chief prosecutor says the Palestinians wouldn’t have much of a case against Israel"; "Moreno-Ocampo said ICC membership could be a double-edged sword for the Palestinians, since it would also open them up to investigation for alleged war crimes, such as rocket fire and bombings targeting Israeli civilians".

   "In the dysfunctional state of Israeli-Palestinian relations, the “nuclear option” for the Palestinians would be joining the International Criminal Court as a member state and exercising that membership to launch war crimes investigations against Israel. At least, that’s the view of many in Israel, which, like the United States, is not a member of the ICC. But to judge by comments made by the ICC’s former chief prosecutor, Luis Moreno-Ocampo — who, even two years after leaving his post in The Hague, remains the controversial court’s most persuasive advocate — Israel has little to worry about.
    Last week, on his first visit to Israel, Moreno-Ocampo was full of praise for the local legal system and eager to point out that joining the ICC could backfire for the Palestinians. “Being here in Israel is not liking talking about international justice in Boston or Sweden,” said Moreno-Ocampo, who was here as a guest of the Fried-Gal Transitional Justice Initiative at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s law school. “The issues here are not academic.”
    But he isn’t at all sure that if the Palestinian Authority were to join the ICC — or if Israel were to join, for that matter — the international court would actually play an active role in the conflict. The ICC’s job is to investigate and prosecute only in cases in which the local legal system is not performing. “In a dictatorship they can make you disappear and kill you,” said Moreno-Ocampo. “But here, even if the situation is awful, you cannot disappear; you have the rule of law.”
    He is wary of being yet another foreigner who “comes here and says I can solve your problems.” Saying Israel has “great lawyers here,” the former chief prosecutor said if Israel’s Supreme Court could find a way to win the Palestinians’ trust, perhaps it could adjudicate claims the Palestinians want to bring before the ICC. For the ICC to rule on Israel’s activities, he said, “the Palestinians have to prove that the [Israeli court’s] decision was to shield the defendants. They would have to prove that it wasn’t a fair proceeding.”
    Moreno-Ocampo rejected a Palestinian request that the ICC launch a war crimes investigation against Israel after its May 2010 raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla, which ended in the deaths of nine Turkish nationals. “I told them that I can’t offer you success because you are not considered a state,” the former chief prosecutor recalled. “First go to the United Nations and when they recognize you, come back.”
    The Palestinian Authority did go to the United Nations, and its status has since been upgraded to non-member observer state, making it eligible to join the court. All the same, Moreno-Ocampo said ICC membership could be a double-edged sword for the Palestinians, since it would also open them up to investigation for alleged war crimes, such as rocket fire and bombings targeting Israeli civilians.
   “The ICC could help the Palestinians, but it could also increase the conflict,” said Moreno-Ocampo. “And the Palestinians should ask themselves how they would do it, because if you want to include everything since 2002 [when the ICC was established], that could include things done by the Palestinians. Another alternative is to start from 2015, not investigate past events and now that Hamas is part of the government, that would prevent them from committing more crimes.” [...]"

   "Plusieurs associations juives espagnoles ont porté plainte mardi 20 mai après la diffusion de 17.500 tweets contenant des messages antisémites, dans la foulée de la victoire dimanche de l'équipe du Maccabi Tel Aviv face au Real Madrid, en finale de l'Euroligue messieurs de basket.
    Le club israélien a créé la surprise en remportant le match (98-86 après prolongations) tandis que le Real échouait pour la deuxième année consécutive en finale. Mais immédiatement après la partie, une vague de messages à caractère antisémite a envahi Twitter en Espagne, à tel point que le hashtag #putosjudios est devenu pendant quelques heures le plus populaire du réseau social dans ce pays.
   "En voyant des réactions à la victoire du Maccabi comme 'les Juifs aux fours' ou 'les Juifs aux douches', nous avons décidé de porter plainte", a expliqué Rubén Noboa, du collectif Israël en Catalogne, à l'origine de cette action judiciaire, à laquelle se sont jointes 11 autres associations. Les plaignants ont déposé devant la justice plus de 17.500 messages considérés comme antisémites et publiés après le match, dont cinq proviennent d'utilisateurs qui ont pu être identifiés nommément.
