And we know it is a hoax for this simple reason. It is Israel and her supporters that try to blur the line between Israel's crimes and all of the world's Jewish people. It is Israel and her supporters that try to defect just criticism of Israel by creating an illusion of victimhood against all Jews everywhere.
In the vast majority of cases where the actual perpetrators have been caught for these so-called anti-Semitic attacks, the perpetrators turn out to be pro-Israel Jews. There is no reason to assume that the proportions are not the same for the cases where the perpetrators are never identified.
Some examples include the "anti-Semitic" attack on the synagogue in Venezuela during Operation Cast Lead that resulted in the arrest of security people who worked for the synagogue.
Then there was the professor at Claremont College who painted her own care with anti-Semitic graffiti.
Passau police chief Alois Mannichl’s claim that he was stabbed by a neo-Nazi turned out to be a hoax; the wound the result of a domestic dispute.
Reform Rabbi Gabriel Farhi faked a stabbing attack on himself.
Olga Abramovich, 49, sprayed anti-Semitic grafitti on 20 different sites in Brooklyn. Olga is Jewish.
Morton Downey Jr. claimed to have been attacked in a San Francisco airport restroom by "Skinheads". Police dismissed the report as a cheap publicity stunt.
A 23 year old woman in France who claimed thugs ripped her clothing and painted swastikas on her belly later admitted she made the whole thing up.
A Jewish student at George Washington University complained that "someone" was painting swastikas on her door. A police surveillance camera caught the girl painting the swastikas herself.
And so forth.
Right now Israel is trying to erase the memories of CAST LEAD from the popular consciousness and to recover their former status as the world's permanent victim to be pitied, supported, and never EVER criticized.
So, it was predictable that we would see a sudden flurry of these hoaxes appear.
