Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Giulio Meotti, an Italian journalist and author. His columns have appeared in the Wall Street Journal and Commentary. He graduated with a degree in philosophy at the University of Florence. He is the author of the new book, A New Shoah: The Untold Story of Israel’s Victims of Terrorism.

FP: Giulio Meotti, welcome to Frontpage Interview. Let’s begin with what inspired you to write A New Shoah.

Meotti: Thanks Jamie for your special hospitality.

As a non-Jew, I feel the cause of Israel as inseparable from the fate of the Western civilization. Israel is in the Middle East, but its existence is not just in the Middle East per se. In that tiny land currently live the sons and daughters of the European civilization that was brutally annihilated during the Holocaust. Israel is on the border, we are behind the front lines, but we are in the same fatal conditions. We, Europeans and Americans, should feel the Israelis as our brothers.

The current Jihadi terror flare up in the world after 9/11 is, on several realms, grounded on anti-Semitism – which is the real cause of the Middle East conflict. Anti-Semitism not only explains the war on Israel but also on the invisibility of Jewish victims in the media. I decided to start the book in 2003. I was in Israel for a tv documentary about the Second Intifada. There was a terror attack in Haifa, in a restaurant that Yigal Allon, an Israeli general and politician, called a symbol of Arab-Jewish coexistence. A Palestinian woman blew herself up and twenty people were killed after their last meal. A broken stroller, of a baby who had just been just killed, gave me the physical dimension of Israel’s battle for survival. Hundreds and hundreds of people killed in Haifa, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Netanya, Hadera and Sderot didn’t find a voice in the global media. So I started a research project that had cost me six years, working on families and survivors of terrorism.

The goal of the book is to epitomize the mere statistics of Israeli victims of terror with stories, ideals and faces. I consider this book like an incarnation of the disaster and of Israel’s humanity and heroism.

FP: Can you kindly explain the meaning of “Shoah” for those readers who might not know what it means?

Meotti: Shoah is a Hebrew word that means calamity, catastrophe, massive destruction. It’s a   mysterious and marvelous word currently synonymous with the Holocaust of 6 million Jews killed by the Nazis. The suppression of the Jewish victim’s identity, of his name, of his face, the abolition of his humanity, were the motors of the Holocaust sixty years ago.

Likewise, in today’s Europe, the venom of anti-Semitism and the hatred of Israel are accepted and propagated generously, paving the way for a second Shoah. Europe negates the history of Israel, its right of existence recognized by the United Nations, and the dignity of Israeli victims. Exactly ten years ago, Palestinian terrorist groups launched the Second Intifada, resulting in this Israeli “Ground Zero” with 1,500 civilian victims. Israel is a very tiny country, and this number would be proportionally equivalent to about 54,000 terror victims in the United States: 20 times the 11/9. The hundreds of attacks in Israel, day after day, amount to a sort of “new Shoah,” a mini Holocaust.

In the book, I move from the extermination camps that covered Europe to the massacres of innocents in Israel in a continual recount of family stories. I also decided to adopt the word Shoah because today in the Western democracies the Holocaust’s memory is a special weapon in the hands of Israel’s haters. Just a couple of examples: In Holland the president of the parliament and leader of the Socialist Party, Jan Marijnessen, compared Islamic terrorism in the Middle East to the European resistance against the Nazis. Shallow declarations about the evils of the Holocaust have become a tool against what anti-Semites paint as our modern fascists, the Israelis. Trine Lilleng, a Norwegian diplomat spelled it out more directly: “The grandchildren of Holocaust survivors from World War II are doing to the Palestinians exactly what was done to them by Nazi Germany.” In the last fifteen years, hundreds and hundreds of Jews were killed because they were Jews, while the guardians of memory were busy in non-useful phony ceremonies. In Europe, they betrayed the memory of the Shoah.

FP: Expand a bit on why the story you are telling has been untold.

Meotti: This amount of Israeli suffering and pain was systematically neglected by the global public opinion. These stories of Israeli victims of terrorism had to be forgotten in order to promote the image of Israel as a colonialist, fascist, violent and arrogant state. These terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians should have been condemned by the United Nations as “crimes against humanity,” but they were always blamed on Israel’s very existence. Europe denied these victims’ existence because the Old Continent can’t pardon the Jews for the Holocaust. It’s a very deep way of “digesting” the Holocaust: we remember the Holocaust’s Jews so we can delegitimize the Israelis who are fighting for their own lives. Europe has a sense of guilt vis-à-vis the Jews because of the Holocaust. So by finding reasons to blame Israel, it believes it can assuage its guilt.

For ten years, Israel has been seeing rockets hitting its civilian population and nobody in Europe has said a word. The hatred toward Israel has emanated from the walls of the human rights conference halls. The Western universities have become fertile grounds for the cultivation of the genocidal reading proposed by Ahmadinejad. The Western media suppressed or minimized the suffering of the Israeli population under terrorism. The narrative has made Israel an international criminal, has attributed to the Jewish State all the characteristics that make it deserve the death penalty, from racism to apartheid. The journalists made themselves potential accomplices to genocide. They deny  Israel’s victims dignity to delegitimize the Jewish historic right to Israel. The Jewish people were born there, lived there for centuries; it is there that they founded monotheism, a moral law that has generated democracy and prosperity. But for the Arabs, and not only for the Palestinians, for the Western appeasers, the Jewish presence in the area is deemed illegal and evil, forever. The world should be ashamed when it left the Israelis alone, during the Second Intifada, to be killed in cafes, buses, supermarkets and restaurants. The suicide bombers were always praised by the press as “victims.” This monstrous morality has been now poured all over Europe, where anti-Semitism has grown in all of its cities.

FP: Bring to life some of the human stories and tragedies told in your book.

Meotti: I wanted to recreate a chain of thousands of human beings, young and old, children, babies, women and men massacred at random in buses, cafeterias, shops and restaurants by those who believe that to kill is an act of faith. Terrorism destroyed an entire class of people just because of their identity, free Jews living in their land and state, Israeli Arabs in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The book is built on the testimonies of all kinds of Israeli victims of terrorism: “settlers” slaughtered in what they call “Judea and Samaria,” kibbutznikim killed in their beds, the doctors and psychiatrists, young students massacred in dancing places, Soviet dissidents killed after emigration to Israel, Americans massacred at the Israeli universities, orthodox women assassinated at pilgrim places, adolescents destroyed along with military reservists and Holocaust survivors.

These victims form the great family of Israel. There is a very important lesson in these stories: despite six decades of war and suffering, the majority of Israelis don’t feed hatred or pessimism. I always met optimism. It’s an amazing phenomenon that deals with the survival of the Jewish nation after 3.000 years of exile, killings, pogroms and Holocaust. It’s a great sign of vitality when Jewish women who lost parents and brothers help Arab women to give birth to their babies. The survivors were always able to rebuild after the attacks, they married again and had more babies.

Israel’s normality is its main victory. Israelis were able to live and progress at the base of the vulcan. In 1991, when Saddam Hussein rockets felt on the city of Tel Aviv, the Israeli Orchestra auditorium was full of people. The director Zubin Mehta, a non-Jew, was playing Bach when the siren started to sound. Mehta and the great Isaac Stern continued the concert wearing a gas mask. Or like the young people that continue to fall in love under the rockets in Sderot or Kiryat Shmona, two Israeli cities bombed by Hamas and Hezbollah. Iran’s president Ahmadinejad just visited the Lebanese border with Israel.

    I can't wait to read this book! Thank you so much Mr Meotti!

  • Lawrence Kohn

    Some may comment that Meotti's commendable work is displacing the sins of Europe onto the Arabs of the Middle East. Don't be diverted by this false argument if you hear it. Zionist immigration added to a minority (except in Jerusalem where Jews were a majority by mid 19th century) but continuous Jewish presence in Palestine predating the Arab conquest. In addition, in parallel with the Zionist movement, mass immigration of Arabs into Palestine in the 30s and 40s took place due to the work the Zionists did to develop the country. Also the Arabs refused partition, a sharing of the land, because they rejected the concept of Jews, considered to be their inferiors, having rights to sovereign territory of any size. And the leadership of the Palestinian Arabs of the 20s,30s and 40s, Husseini, met with Hitler in Berlin, supervised pro Nazi propaganda during WW II and organized a Bosnian Muslim brigade that worked with the Waffen SS to murder Serbs and Jews. And he murdered Arabs who disagreed. Many thanks to Mr Meotti.

  • USMCSniper

    The Palestinians are proxy terrorists of the Muslim Arab states who strap munitions on their own women and children and send them out on homicide-suicide missions to murder other innocent women and children in markets, restuarants, on school buses, and in their homes. The Palestinians in their own words and by their actions are committed to the genocide of the Jewish people.

    rabbi meir kahana told shifra hoffman a close associate of his, go to israel and open an organization for jews who will be killed by arab terror. it was the first such org. shifr opened vat victims of arab terror,since then others have opened. i stood with shifra who (is no longer a young woman physically but otherwise sharp and strong and full of fight.)we were at kikar zion a few years ago. we had all the posters of all the murdered jews. thousands. there picutres had been pasted onto posters by shifra. we had all these posters on display. public reaction. everyone cried. some came up and kissed the pictures of their loved one who had been murdered, others went crazy looking for the picutres,others could not speak, others said thank you to us. and so on.she has been actively fighting for years and also raising funds to support the families who lost their loved ones. when the government of israel has failed she steps in. a common story here many are fulfiling the place of the lousy government by opening private charities.__i suggest you contact shifra.

    The war of attrition in Israel has been going on since 48. Slowly, methodically, they chip away at Israel's security, in an attempt to take away our history, our land, our property, villages, jobs, shuls. This is ethnic cleansing. Instead of gas chambers, the new threat is nuclear tipped weapons from Iran. Yes, it is a second shoah- and the target is the Jews. Again we are becoming the world's scapegoat- even Obama and company General Jones, and others have tried to make linkage between the American war in Iraq, and overall terror in the world, to Israel's unwillingness to self destruct. It is unbelievable, but what we are seeing is a new Holocaust being waged. The demonization of jews and israelis has been effective- Arab money has been wisely spent on NGOS and orgs like JStreet, to effectively damage us diplomatically, and hurt us psychologically, so to incapacitate us from taking strong, direct action. Our hands have been tied by the EU, the entire body of the UN (a disgrace among nations)the Arab league and now America. Again the Jew is completely alone, with no where to go, except to withdraw and hopefully unite opposing forces within the country, and prepare for war.

    "Again the Jew is completely alone, with no where to go, except to withdraw and hopefully unite opposing forces within the country, and prepare for war. "

    Given the above,it might be wiser to prepare for peace,debby.Muchiboy

    • MixMChess

      Israel has prepared for peace numerous times. As you conveniently forget, Israel gave the entire Sinai to Egypt for Peace in 1979, Israel signed a peace agreement with Jordan in 1994, Israel offered the Palestinians all of Gaza and 95% of the W. Bank in 2000… need I really go on?

      What have the Palestinians done to prepare for peace? Oh, and Hamas stockpiling weapons and PA TV encouraging children to hate and murder Jews doesn't count!

  • muchiboy

    "The “Palestinians'” lack of interest in peace."

    The only "peace" Israelis are interested in are further "pieces" of Palestinian land.For sure,give them an inch,they take a mile.Muchiboy

    • MixMChess

      Right, that is why Israel offered 98% of the territories to the Palestinians in 2000. That is also why the Israelis completely withdrew from Gaza and have dismantled W. Bank Settlements. Perhaps only the Palestinians and Arabs are interested in "pieces" of Israeli land?

    I don't believe this,and it certainly isn't my experience nor the Canadian ,nor I suspect the Western liberal democracy,experience.

    " These terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians should have been condemned by the United Nations as “crimes against humanity,” but they were always blamed on Israel’s very existence."

    Sure,bite the hand that feeds you.How conveniently Zionists forget that Israel owes its' very existence to the UN.If any one has the right to feel pissed off at the UN and the Western Democracies,it's the Palestinian people.
    And we all know how political the UN is,and just to keep things in perspective and balance,remember the times when America has blocked anti Israeli resolutions in the Security Counsel.

    " Europe denied these victims’ existence because the Old Continent can’t pardon the Jews for the Holocaust.

      Regardless, the media, which helps form global opinion, has a very obvious strong bias against Israel: http://www.honestreporting.ca/

      Do you even know anything about the UN or the operation of International law? You seriously get dumber and dumber with each post. Its funny that you are so "supposedly" passionate about a cause that you know absolutely nothing about.

      The UN may have admitted Israel as a member state, but since the 1970's the UN has been actively hostile to Israel. The UN has been nothing but pro-Palestinian! In 1974 the UN passed a general resolution equating Zionism with racism. In 1975 the UN established the pro-PLO “Committee on the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People” in 1975, which was a propaganda tool to defame Israel.

      Israel is the object of more investigative committees, special representatives and rapporteurs than any other state in the UN system. The Commission on Human Rights routinely adopts disproportionate resolutions concerning Israel, while rogue states such as Syria, N. Korea, and Libya are never criticized. The U.S. has only reacted to veto and prevent the unfair bias against Israel.

  • muchiboy

    "Regardless, the media, which helps form global opinion, has a very obvious strong bias against Israel: "

    If you're honest,MixMChess,you'll admit that the West generally is sympathetic towards Israel where it counts and is reasonable,otherwise the Palestinians would have their and your "homeland.It's interesting that both of us ,each with such different opinions,think the world press,etc is bias against our pet people.It seems every time I read,see or hear an opinion on the mid east it is pro Israeli.I've no doubt it is the same for you but for the opposite bias.It's just human nature.Shows you we are more the same then different.Shalom,my friend.Muchiboy

    • MixMChess

      "If you're honest,MixMChess,you'll admit that the West generally is sympathetic towards Israel where it counts and is reasonable,otherwise the Palestinians would have their and your 'homeland.'"

      You're wrong and as usual, you're demonstrating a complete ignorance of the history of the region. First of all, while the US has been generally supportive of Israel, other western countries, namely in Europe have served as a "counterbalance" being "generally sympathetic to Palestinians as the weaker party, critical of an unqualified US backing of Israel." For years, the PLO had offices in Europe. "France's Navy helped Yasser Arafat escape Tripoli in 1983." While, Europe backed the Oslo Accords, they "saw the Palestinian cause as a fight for territory and statehood."

      Even still, the US is not always "reflexively" pro-Israel. In 1948, after the Arab states invaded Israel, the U.S. "maintained an arms embargo that severely restricted the Jews’ ability to defend themselves." The U.S. has been overtly pro-Arab by refusing to challenge Arab violations of the UN Charter and resolutions, for example "the Arabs were permitted to get away with blockading the Suez Canal, imposing a boycott on Israel and committing acts of terrorism." The U.S. has taken positions against Israel at the UN, "and did not use its Security Council veto to block an anti-Israel resolution until 1972."

      All the while, the Arab/Islamic Bloc, the third-world Bloc and nations such as Russia and China have been extremely hostile to Israel and adopt only the Palestinian narrative to the conflict. The Arab/Islamic Bloc alone has provided billions to the Palestinians in aid to support the murder and extermination of Jews.

      If you're honest (which you're not) you would admit that the entire world including much of the West (Europe) is overtly pro-Palestinian and generally unsympathetic to Israel.

    I'll take your word for it,MixMChess,but that just might have something to do with the wholesale,longstanding and continuous suffering and grievances of the Palestinian people at the hands of Israel.Considering the amount of suffering and time past this has to be a world priority.Israel can afford to wait,laying about outside their seaside condos,but the Palestinians living in their wretched conditions in Gaza,etc.can ill afford that luxury.Make a fair and just peace with the Palestinians,taking into account what they have lost to you and yours,and maybe you might get some praise from the UN.Muchiboy

    • MixMChess

      "I'll take your word for it,MixMChess,but that just might have something to do with the wholesale,longstanding and continuous suffering and grievances of the Palestinian people at the hands of Israel."

      Any suffering by the Palestinians is their own fault. They could have accepted peace a long time ago but instead chose xenophobia and violence.

      "Considering the amount of suffering and time past this has to be a world priority."

      Are you serious? The genocide in Darfur, Tibetan freedom, famine in Africa, and human rights in N. Korea are far greater priorities than the self-created "suffering" of the Palestinians.

      "Israel can afford to wait,laying about outside their seaside condos,but the Palestinians living in their wretched conditions in Gaza,etc.can ill afford that luxury."

      I forgot how awful it was in Gaza, they just opened a brand new shopping mall. Must be tough living! In August a new Olympic-sized swimming pool opened in Gaza as well. How terrible! Just look at life expectancy and infant mortality in Gaza versus Turkey. In Turkey life expectancy is 72.23 and infant mortality is 24.84 per 1,000 births. Where as in Gaza: life expectancy is 73.68 and infant mortality is 17.71 per 1,000 births. Or compare Gaza to the millions of Africans that die each year from famine. Life expectancy in Swaziland is less than 40 years, and in Zambia it is 42 years.

      Palestinians, receive (undeserved) the highest amounts of international aid in the world. This year alone Israel has delivered almost 300,000 tons of aid into Gaza. Still, Hamas has been running Gaza since Israel completely withdrew in 2005, and they are the only ones to blame for any supposed Palestinian suffering.

      "Make a fair and just peace with the Palestinians,taking into account what they have lost to you and yours,and maybe you might get some praise from the UN."

      Israel offered peace with the Palestinians in 1993, 2000, 2005 and 2006 and each time were met with violence. Palestinians don't want peace, they want Jewish blood. The UN is clearly complicit with Palestinian hate and violence.

    • Judy Abeles Eliasov

      Muchiboy: I too feel for the Palestinians who live wretched lives in Gaza refugee camps. Do you know how many millions of dollars have been donated to Gaza from the Western world for their rehabilitation? Unfortunately the refugees are kept in squalor for political& propaganda reasons. Have you seen the shopping malls and highly priced real estate in Gaza? The Lebanese also keep the refugees in camps not allowing them to work and better their position – remember Sabra and Shatilla????
      I dont know what are your souces of information, but I would urge you to check them out more carefully.

  • muchiboy

    Howzit,Judy;Just re-reading your post while listening to the Sunday broadcast sermon from SW Radio Africa where they referred to the Campbell family of Zimbabwe farmers featured in "Mugabe and the White African".Interesting how they observed that even MDC supporters had little sympathy with the white farmers losing their farms based on past/learned insults/humiliates.Certainly this applies to your situation in Israel,too.I would hope that man will eventually learn the benefits,sooner then later,both moral and practical,of forgiveness and magnanimity.As in Zimbabwe,that gem of a country would still be a paradise if all races,tribes,elites and people were noble enough to recognize the beauty and fragility of the fruits of the above mentioned qualities.Despite the risks,the present situation is intolerable given the genuine and long standing grievances of the Palestinian people.Sure,Israel is between a rock and a hard place,but Zionism and Israeli policy has to accept its fair share of responsibility here.

    I can see sanctions and boycotts on the horizon if the situation does not improve for the Palestinians.Right or wrong,and I admittedly lean towards right,the West will be forced to act as it did with Rhodesia and RSA.Cheers. Ron

      What are you rambling on about now? The conflicts in Rhodesia and in S. Africa are in no way comparable to Israel. You're comparing apples to oranges and desperately trying to fit Israel into your narrow worldview based on your African experiences. There is no reason to lash out at Israel because you have a guilty conscience for being a racist Rhodesian. Get over yourself.
