The popular Israeli web-based satirical show LatmaTV has released a musical video containing crude anti-Muslim stereotypes and mocking Europeans as “dummies” for supposedly allowing their countries to be taken over by Islam and turned into “Eurabia.”
In one sequence, a Norwegian father tells his blonde daughter about Muslims: “When they rape you don’t object for that is politically incorrect.”
Fantasies about people of color raping white women remain one of the oldest racist tropes and were frequently a pretext for lynching black men and boys in the United States. This hate-based fear has led in Israel to measures to “rescue” Jewish women from dating Arab men.
Last Summer, Anders Breivik massacred dozens of children and young people in Norway supposedly to prevent the takeover of the country by Muslims. This new Israeli video seems to affirm Breivik’s fantasy of white – even Aryan – Europe being vulnerable to Muslim invasion.
Jerusalem Post editor and US neocon group behind hate video
LatmaTV is popular in Israel and is run by Jerusalem Post deputy editor Caroline Glick. She is an American who grew up in Chicago, settled in Palestine in 1991, and served five and a half years in the Israeli army.
LatmaTV, as Robert Mackey who edits The Lede blog at the The New Times reported last year, is a project of the neoconservative US-based “Center for Security Policy” (CSP) to which Glick is an advisor.
Glick was also behind the notorious “We con the world” video which mocked victims of Israel’s attack on the Mavi Marmara also using crude racist stereotypes.
But the latest video, which seems to affirm the beliefs of mass killer Anders Breivik, may have reached a new low, even for such extremists. If the targets of this hate propaganda were Jews instead of Muslims, it is not difficult to imagine what the outcry would be.
