anit-Zionist test

You think there is no Antisemitism? Take the anti-Zionist test

This is designed for people who think there is no antisemitism in the anti-Zionist, anti-Israel movements. If you know any, ask them to take the test.

Before you begin.

Imagine: Someone you are connected to continually posts racist memes and comments on Facebook. On his time stream are constant references to racial slurs, using words and phrases that are unacceptable in society. Viscous, vile, offensive posts that draw on awful stereotypes and link back to white supremacy websites. What would you do when you saw them? I hope, as an anti-racist, you would delete him from your friends list or at least confront them about their offensive views.

You may now begin the anti-Zionist test. When you have finished, please pass it on to your friends, or other anti-Israel protesters you know.


A few days ago, I posted the result of an investigation into antisemitism inside Palestinian activism in the UK. Since its release, I have received abuse and threats. Some of the more measured criticism has been absurdly to throw the line that ‘anti-Zionism’ is nothing to do with antisemitism. So, I have designed a test to assist in measuring the level of ‘neo-Nazi’ antisemitism ‘IN YOUR ONLINE ENVIRONMENT’.

anti-Zionist test part oneThe test starts with an easy exercise in identifying blatant antisemitism.

Do you consider any of these comments to be antisemitic?

  • The Jews were behind 9/11
  • The holocaust is the biggest myth of our time
  • Charlie Hebdo was a false flag carried out by Mossad to make Jews go to Israel
  • Ashkenazi Jews are all fake Jews
  • Kristallnacht was instigated by Jews to promote War against Germany
  • Babylonian Talmud advocates sex with child age three
  • Israel kills people to harvest their organs

The answer to this question is ‘all of the above’ and there is little ambiguity here. Israel’s conflict with the Palestinians has nothing to do with any of the above statements.

If you have been answering no to the examples above, then you hold blatant antisemitic views and you do not have to participate any further in this anti-Zionist test.  If however you answered ‘yes’, then please continue:

part two Anti-Zionist testPlease access your Facebook account.Enter each of these words / phrases in turn into the Facebook search bar. Then, by using the left hand menu, filter each of the results to see only posts on the subject made by ‘your friends’ or ‘your friends and groups’:


  • Mossad
  • Khazar
  • Isis Israel
  • 9/11
  • Paris
  • False flag
  • Organ trafficking
  • Holocaust

Scan the results of each of these words in turn.

Your are looking for posts concerning global conspiracy, blood libel or holocaust denial. In this context, use of the word ‘Zionist’ is clearly misplaced. At this stage you can be inventive, mix words, use others connected to historical Jew hatred.

Given the research I released last week, your activeness within the anti-Israel organisations is likely to influence the results you see. The more active you are in anti-Israel activity, the more antisemitic posts you are likely to see. If you are highly active and you engage in street protest, your search request will probably be inundate you with antisemitic posts.

These are the types of images you are looking for:

antisemitic facebook

These are only a handful of examples, and I found thousands of related images when doing research into people who claim they are humanitarian, pro-equality and anti-racist.  You should be highlighting any posts that imply the mossad / Jews / Israel are connected to some type of global control, conspiracy theory, blood libel or anything that is denying the holocaust. The websites these people link to hard core antisemitic websites.

These are just some of the websites that you ought to be looking for: (I am not providing hyperlinks because many of these sites are considered not safe for work). These are not ‘humanitarian’, ‘universalist’ websites who are based on sympathy for Palestinians, but rather ‘neo-Nazi’ sites that push white supremacy, Jewish control and conspiracy theories. Again, these are just some examples:
911 truth websites

anti-Zionist test part 3This is a simple exercise. Check your friends list and look for someone who has made this or a similar edit to his Facebook profile picture:


truth 9/11

(Note how the Free Palestine flag takes center stage in ‘9/11 truth’ conspiracy theory). Not everyone who pushes 9/11 conspiracy theory is an antisemite, but most of the websites that support the conspiracy theories have tied it back into hard core Jewish global control. As an example, if they are using a version of this profile picture, for them anti-Zionist, is about engaging with a website that thinks Jews control America and Israel is behind both 9/11 and Charlie Hebdo.

anti-Zionist test part fourI am quite confident that if you are engaged heavily in anti-Israel discussion, and have dealt with this test sincerely, then you are now fully aware that hard core antisemitism exists even within your own social media circle. A few final questions:

  • Have you deleted any of your friends?
  • Were you surprised at how many you found?
  • How did /would you approach the subject if you confronted them?
  • Did you just excuse it, push it all to one side?
  • If the posts had referred to classic anti-black racism, would you have treated it the same way?
  • Given the history of Jews and antisemitism, imagine a state of Jews. How do you think this state would be viewed by those who hate Jews?

As I know how much antisemitism exists on the anti-Israel social media networks, there is clearly something ‘more acceptable’ within left wing groups about antisemitism when compared to other hatreds. Surely this has to change? You can sympathise with Palestinians, without associating with those that hate Jews. Can’t you?

Thank you for participating in this anti-Zionist test. Please pass this test on to your friends.

    1. oh Stephen, I should have just led with the comment I do not expect you to bother. We all know how that would turn out.

    2. Mr Bellamy: notwithstanding the rather patronising tone of your comment you are of course quite correct. The anti-semites know who they – are without taking the test.

  1. Did the test David and didn’t find anything…then I remembered that I have had a couple of Facebook “friends” tidy-ups already.

    The purge worked. Result!

  2. One of the most creepy Facebook discussions I found, on a former “friend’s” timeline concerned Israeli soldiers’ sperm!

    A superior-race-chosen-people breeding accusation type of thing. Pathological creepiness barely covers it.

  3. David, I think that the first question should allow for a “never heard of it” response. I’d change the test to count the “no” votes, versus “yes to all”. Otherwise wonderful work and thank you. Turns out I’m not anti-semitic (I’m a proud Jew).

  4. Truly, this could have been established long ago. Just do the math — look at the size of Israel – even a “Greater Israel” – as a percentage of the earth. Then look at the Palestinian population – even using the multi-generational “refugee” count – as a percentage of world population. These percentages are minuscule. Now look at the percentage of media and UN time/words dedicated to Israel vs. other topics (60%??).

    That’s all the data you need to know there’s something mighty curious about anti-“Zionism.”

    In fact, the ONLY way to make the two sides of this embarrassing equation balance – Literal Size of Threat and Worldwide anti-“Zionist” Hysteria – is if anti-“Zionism” is actually anti-Semitism. (Hint: Those scary Jews were 1% of the population in pre-war Germany.)

  5. Antisemitism exists and always will exist simply because of Semitism. Why are people afraid of the facts about the Jews? They have subverted and undermined every host they have been invited or crawled into. They are condemned in the bible and have been expelled from over a 100 countries for more or less the same practices. The fact that the masquerade as white people and literally own the bulk of the media means they control the minds of the masses.I am not antisemitic by the way.
