An investigative documentary called The New Anti-Semitism was aired on Sunday night, the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day 2013, on Channel 2 …
The Keshet documentary is a Canadian-Israeli co-production presented by Israeli anchorman Ya’akov Eilon. The binational cooperation enabled Canadian journalists to interview people that Israelis would not have had access to, such as Alex Linder, the owner and operator of the viciously anti-Semitic, white supremacist Vanguard News Network.
The filmmakers document what they describe as “new Anti-Semitism” through the use of hidden cameras in conferences, demonstrations and behind the scenes of anti-Zionist meetings across the globe.
Filmmaker and director Martin Himel told The Jerusalem Post that the primary objective of the documentary is to present “Anti-Semitism in action,” to allow viewers to feel what it means and to acknowledge that is exists.
“My goal was not so much to explain it [Anti-Semitism] or to describe how people suffer. For me it was more important to say, ‘Here is the new Anti-Semitism, take a look and see it for what it is,'” he clarified.
The director pointed to comparisons of Jews with Nazis and the use of terms such as “genocide,” “extinction” and extermination” when discussing Israel as examples of contemporary Anti-Semitism. He also cited claims that Jews control Hollywood, the banks and the media as examples.
He was keen, however, to point out the difference between being critical of Israel and being anti-Semitic, saying that the former conversely includes language such as “occupation,” “annexation of territories” and “settlements.” Himel also flagged lobbies such as Occupy AIPAC, which he charged with disguising Anti-Semitism with anti-Zionism. The documentary “pulls the pants down on people who say ‘I’m anti- Zionist, not an anti-Semite,'” Himel told the Post… http://www.jpost.com/JewishWorld/Jewi…

Heritage: Civilization and the Jews (1984) — 5. The Search for Deliverance
HERITAGE: CIVILIZATION AND THE JEWS (1984) — 5. THE SEARCH FOR DELIVERANCE
with ABBA EBAN
Winner of the coveted Peabody Award, HERITAGE: CIVILIZATION AND THE JEWS is the monumental nine-part series spanning three millennia of Jewish history and culture. The series is hosted by former Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Abba Eban, who describes it as “a celebration of our common humanistic and moral heritage, explored through the mysteries of preservation, renewal, and resonance of the Jewish people.” From the stony heights of Sinai to the shores of the Dead Sea, from a Greek amphitheater in Delphi to the Forum of ancient Rome, out of the ashes of concentration camps to the rebuilt cities and villages of Israel, “Heritage” brings to life the long and complex history of the Jews and their centuries-old interaction with the rest of Western civilization.
5. THE SEARCH FOR DELIVERANCE (1492 — 1789)
This program picks up the thread of Jewish history as the intellectual awakening of the Renaissance began to alter the attitudes and habits of all people. Such scholars as Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, Johanes Kepler, and Galileo began to examine the world around them with new eyes. Abba Eban takes viewers through the narrow alleys of the Venetian ghetto, as he explains the reality of ghetto life. Jewish composers, artists, and poets achieved fame the transcended the ghetto walls. Spanish and Portuguese Jews who had escaped the persecution of the Spanish Inquisition flocked to Amsterdam, known as the “New Jerusalem” where refugees from religious intolerance were welcomed.
Hosted and Narrated by ABBA EBAN
