Syria, long one of Israel’s most intransigent enemies, entered face-to-face negotiations with Israel at the 1991 Madrid Conference, with subsequent bi-lateral negotiations held at the State Department in Washington and at the Wye River Plantation in Maryland. No public negotiations have been conducted since February 1996. With the signing of the Israeli-Palestinian Wye Memorandum in October 1998, the United States declared the hope of progress on the Israel-Syria track and has expressed a willingness to reengage in these negotiations.

In 1462, at Rinn, near Innsbruck in Austria, a boy named Andreas Oxner (or Anderl or Andrew) was supposedly bought by Jewish merchants and cruelly murdered by them in a forest near the city. His blood was carefully collected in vessels. The story was only popularized in the 17th century. In 1619 a Dr. Hippolyt Guarinoni (1571-1654) heard a story about little boy who was buried in Rinn and had been murdered by Jews.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: There will be no lasting or real peace in the Middle East until Arabs stop demonizing Jews.
Many Arabs like to say they lived in harmony with their Jewish brothers and sisters until the state of Israel was created in 1948. This, like so much of official and unofficial Arab rhetoric about the Jewish state, is a lie.

The allegations that certain factions within the Judaic religion practice a horrible and primitive rite of human sacrifice have been continuous since very ancient times. While at first seemingly gross and implausible, a closer look at the maze of historical accounts, civil and ecclesiastical court records, books, newspapers stories, the Bible, folk tales, ballads and legends indicates that there is more here than mere “anti-Semitism and hate”.

The only newspaper in Germany, yes, in the whole world, which often screams the accusation of ritual murder into the Jewish face is Der Stuermer. For more than ten years Der Stuermer has led a gigantic battle against Judaism. This has caused Der Stuermer to be under constant attack by the Jews. Dozens of times it has been confiscated and prohibited. Its workers, most of all its editor Julius Streicher, have been dragged to court hundreds of times. They were convicted, punished, and locked into prisons. [In German]

In the rarefied galleries of the New York art world there is talk of a brutal series of murders. The killers are long dead and buried in England, but they may have left behind a vital clue which mysteriously surfaced only 40 years ago. Since then, it has stood undeciphered in a dark corner of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The crucial evidence in this bizarre Manhattan murder mystery is a 12th-century cross exquisitely carved from walrus tusk. Known in Britain as the Bury Cross, after Bury St Edmunds …

Jewish Ritual Murder: On May 1, 1989, the Oprah Winfrey show had as its guest a person who, as a young girl, was forced to participate in a ritual in which a Christian infant was sacrificed. The amazing thing about this guest is that she was not affiliated with some unknown radical blood letting cult, but that she was a Jew. According to an article on the show in the “Chicago Tribune,” the woman was “undergoing long-term psychiatric treatment,”

Between October of 1955 and December of 1956, a total of five White children, three young boys including two brothers and a friend and two teenaged sisters, were abducted and murdered in a manner which was suggestive of Jewish ritual sacrifice, the liturgical object of which is to obtain Gentile blood to mix with the matzoh used in several esoteric Jewish religious ceremonies such as Purim, Passover, and Kol Nidre at Yom Kippur

ON 15th July, 1936, Mr. Oliver Locker-Lampson, M.P., a childhood friend of the Rothschild family, asked in the House of Commons whether the Attorney-General proposed to institute legal proceedings against the authors or publishers of The Fascist, the issue of that paper for July containing allegations against the Jews of the practice of ritual murder. The Attorney-General replied that the matter was under consideration.

A MANUSCRIPT by the Victorian explorer Sir Richard Francis Burton (pictured), which claims that Jews performed human sacrifices, has been released after nearly 100 years. The paper, written in 1877, is to be sold by the Board of Deputies for British Jews through Christie’s auctioneers on June 6 and is expected to fetch around £200,000.

The Blood Libel – the claim that Jews use the blood of Christians to make the Matzah (unleavened bread) eaten at Passover – is an ancient accusation against the Jewish people. In modern times, this claim has surfaced in the context of the Arab-Israeli conflict. In 1984, long-time Syrian Defense Minster and Ba’athist leader, Field Marshal Mustafa Tlass, wrote a book entitled ‘The Matzah of Zion’ about the 1840 Damascus Blood Libel which he described as an historical event that was researched and verified by several European Universities. More recently, in November 1999, Al-Usbu’ Al-Adabi, a weekly of the Syrian Arab Writers Association, published an article mentioning the 1840 Damascus Blood Libel.

1490. Toledo. | This is a most important case, the circumstances of which have been clarified for us by W. T. Walsh in his interesting book on Isabella of Spain, 1931 (Sheed & Ward), in which he devotes pp. 441 to 468 to his researches on this Ritual Murder charge. Had it not been for Mr. Walsh, I might have been influenced by the Jewish Encyclopedia’s statement (1903, Vol. II1, p. 262) that “Modern historians even deny that a child had disappeared at all” in this case! Strenuous efforts were made by Loeb and H. C. Lea to clear the Jews from guilt of this murder; as also by Abbe Vacandard. Walsh shows that on 17th October, 1490, a Jew named Yuce confessed to having been present at the crucifixion of a boy called Christopher at La Guardian near Toledo.

The Jews are under a terrible suspicion the world over. Who does not know this, does not understand the Jewish problem. Anyone who merely sees the Jews, as Heinrich Heine (Chaim Bueckberg) described them, “a tribe which secures its existence with exchange and old trousers, and whose uniforms are the long noses,” is being misled. But anyone who knows the monstrous accusation that has been raised against the Jews since the beginning of time, will view these people in a different light. He will begin to see not only a peculiar, strangely fascinating nation; but criminals, murderers, and devils in human form. He will be filled with holy anger and hatred against these people. The suspicion under which the Jews are held is murder. They are charged with enticing Gentile children and Gentile adults, butchering them, and draining their blood. They are charged with mixing this blood into their masses (unleavened bread) and using it to practice superstitious magic.

OBVIOUSLY such cruel and vindictive teaching as that recounted in the previous chapter must bear fruit in crime and atrocities. The occurrence of such deeds explains much of what appears to have been the mere results of superstition and greed of gain amongst semi-barbarous peoples. From the earliest ages to these modern days, and not in one place, but all the world over, the hatred of the Jew against the non-Jew has been of the fiercest. Those who are so ready to admit and deplore the mighty provocations which roused a spirit of retaliation in the Rabbinical mind should equally make allowance for the natural feelings of the unfortunate Gentiles and heathens when the “People of the Synagogue” had their wicked will.

The small Simon, a little boy from Trent, was slayed on the 21st March, 1475, on Maundy-Thursday during Holy Week. The jews of this town wanted to celebrate the Passover in their own way; so they secretly abducted the small boy and carried him to the house of the Jew, Samuel. During the Holy week on the day before Passover, about three hours after supper, the little boy, like children do, was sitting in front of his parents’ house.

Question: Also, I just read about Jewish ritual murder. Do people believe that this is true? Answer: Yes, I do believe that the Jews have practiced ritual murder as part of their religious ceremonies in the past, and that they almost certainly do so today, with the following qualifiers: 1. I do not believe this practice is or ever has been widespread, but has always been restricted to a small number of the most hard-core rabbis and Jewish cabalistic mystic sects; 2. I am perfectly willing to accept the likelihood that individual Jews down through history have been falsely accused of this practice, just as I believe that on the other hand it has often been carried out undetected and/or unpunished. The Beiliss case in 1913 Russia is a good case in point […]
