Preserving Iraqi Jewish Heritage – Presented by Fort Bragg

Preserving Iraqi Jewish Heritage

Exhibition Presented by Fort Bragg

Discovery and Recovery: Preserving Iraqi Jewish Heritage

“We become brave by doing brave things” reads the plaque honoring Terry Sanford, a former paratrooper, and later Governor of North Carolina and President of Duke University. This plaque adorns the exhibit gallery, “The Airborne and Special Operations Museum” at Fort Bragg, which houses the newly opened exhibition, “Preserving Iraqi Jewish Heritage.” 

In 2003, soldiers from Fort Bragg, when searching the headquarter basement of Saddam Hussein’s intelligence department discovered a most unusual cache — 2700 Jewish books and tens of thousands of Jewish documents. The trove, dating from the mid-16th century to the 1970s, has become known as the Iraqi Jewish archive. The exhibition includes a selection of traditional Jewish books, many printed in Baghdad in the late 19th or 20th century and others imported from Hebrew printing centers worldwide. The Baath party regime had expropriated the entirety of this material from synagogues and communal organizations, although what they hoped to learn from these many Jewish community records and religious texts remains unknown even to today.

Until the World War II, the Iraqi Jews, whose civilization had endured well over 2000 years, believed they were immune from the threat of growing Nazi-ism, especially as they had been treated well until then. But Shavuot 1941 proved a turning point, for on June 1-2, 1941, a pogrom of unprecedented anti-Jewish violence forever ended the community’s comfort. 180 Jews died and hundreds more were injured.

The exhibition, created by the U.S. National Archives with support from the US Department of State, runs through Sept 22. Click here for directions and additional information.

Lawsuit Update: Friedman vs Durham City Council

Background: Durham Passes the Israel Resolution

A year ago, on April 16, 2018, the Durham City Council passed the “Israel Resolution” making Durham the first city in the United States to boycott police trainings specifically with Israel. This initiative began on April 5, 2018 when local activists led by the anti-Zionists of Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) presented a petition to the Council demanding that Durham ban police training specifically with Israel. It took the City Council just 11 days to do so. 

Since then, three lawsuits have been filed against Durham on this matter.

Friedman vs Durham City Council

One of the lawsuits filed, “Friedman, Deborah vs Durham City Council,” had a hearing today in Durham County Superior Court. Deborah Friedman is a resident of Durham County. Judge Cynthia King Sturgis presided at this morning’s proceedings and three Voice4Israel board members attended. 

The suit alleges that the City Council held electronic public meetings without notifying the public, thus being in violation of open meetings law. At the heart of this lawsuit are two emails regarding the Council’s “Israel Resolution” that Mayor Schewel sent from his personal email account to the personal emails accounts of City Council members (Voice4Israel unearthed these emails using public record requests). Each of the two emails consists of a quorum or majority of City Council members. To put it simply, the Council met electronically and privately without public notice.

North Carolina State Law requires advance notice of public meetings. Public meetings, such as City Council meetings, are defined as consisting of a “majority of the members” and specifically include electronic meetings.

The attorney for the City of Durham, Henry W Sappenfield, argued today that the term email correspondence does not meet the law’s language or criteria because it is not usually “simultaneous.” In order to meet the law’s definition he argued, the conversation had to occur with some rapidity whether it be in an in-person conference, telephone conversation, or electronic interaction such as with social media services like Facebook. Sappenfield told the court that he considered emails to be discontinuous in time and therefore not simultaneous.

The lawyer for the plaintiff, Jonathan Jones, argued that the intent of the statue was broader and should include electronic conversations where responses could go back and forth over short periods. He bolstered his argument with several examples. In one example, Jones used an email sent by Mayor Schewel which was unearthed by a Voice4Israel investigation. In the email, Mayor Schewel wrote to the entire Council,  “We can’t ‘meet’ as a group via email outside of the sight of the public and press, and I think that’s a good law and practice. But we can correspond in two’s and three’s–fewer than a quorum.” 

A second example, which was also unearthed by Voice4Israel, was related to Jordan Peterson performing at the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC). In this example, the entire Durham City Council corresponded via email to draft and sign a statement opposing Peterson that was not officiated at a formal, publicly announced meeting of the Durham City Council. This occurred even after the mayor had already said they are not supposed to meet via email. 

Both plaintiff and defense lawyers agreed there was little case law about the issue in question.

City Councils Need to Meet in Public So as Not to Harm the Public

The most compelling argument presented was the potential consequences of the judge’s forthcoming ruling and why. If the Judge were to summarily dismiss the lawsuit, this would allow City Council members in this judicial region to adopt the practice of meeting electronically to conduct various types of city business in ways hidden from the public and thus injurious to the public. Ruling in favor of the plaintiff would discourage or prevent any City Council from backhanded maneuvers to conduct City business in private, thus reducing the chance of decisions being made in secret without public awareness and without public feedback. 

The judge is taking the arguments under advisement. She will announce her results at some future time. We await the judge’s decision.

Duke Acts Insensitively By Scheduling Event on Shabbat and Passover

Following the UNC-Duke highly condemned conference on Gaza, Duke has a new event on Middle East refugee issues taking place during the Jewish Shabbat and festival of Passover

Last month UNC and Duke jointly hosted a conference “Conflict over Gaza” which, in reality, proved to be a one-sides series of anti-Israel talks. The bulk of the meeting was held on Shabbat. The conference made national news when a video revealed that a featured performer was shown not only singing an anti-Semitic song, but asking the audience to join him in the singing. Students reported to Voice4Israel that one professor offered academic credit to students who attend the conference. Anti-Semitic posters have since appeared multiple times on UNC’s campus.

UNC Dismisses Then Condemns Anti-Semitism

At first, UNC Global dismissed concerns saying that the video was edited and did not represent the true spirit of the conference. Then, following intense community outrage and national attention, UNC Interim Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz released a statement standing “steadfast against anti-Semitism.”

Hillel North Carolina condemned the anti-Semitic language at the UNC/Duke conference and have called for an academic review.

Some sponsors want money returned after anti-Semitic remarks made at UNC-Duke conference

Tuesday night, ABC 11 news published a report stating “sponsors are asking for their money back and a congressman is seeking a government investigation after an anti-Semitic song was performed by a Palestinian rapper at a ‘Conflict over Gaza’ conference at UNC-Chapel Hill last month.”

From the ABC report:

In a scathing letter to leaders of the UNC Center for Middle East and Islamic Studies, which officially sponsored the event, UNC School of Law Dean Martin Brinkley said: "Due to your inclusion of conference content over which I had no knowledge or control, I have been forced to spend most of the last two days responding to outraged members of my own community who are ashamed and embarrassed to see the law school shown as a sponsor of what they consider hate speech." "As the organizers, who I assume were present during the performance, I would have expected you to intervene and stop a performance that so obviously and painfully contravened campus norms and values, and that so undercut the cultural understanding that you claimed to promote," he wrote.

Department Acts Insensitively

Early next week, On April 20, the Kenan Institute for Ethics is hosting an event on Shabbat and Passover titled, I am here, waiting. Narratives of Iraqi, Palestinian and Syrian Refugees.” Will this event be yet another anti-Israel platform held at a time when most Jewish students and the Jewish community cannot attend?

The Voice4Israel respects the narratives and experiences of all people. We question why the Kenan Institute of Ethics scheduled an event of definite interest to the Jewish community on Passover and on Shabbat. This feels discriminatory in its disregard of Jewish students and Jewish community members who may want to attend the event. Unfortunately, recent campus events have shown us that all too often discussing important Palestinian narratives devolves into Israel bashing and even anti-Semitism. 

More than 800,000 Jews exiled from Arab lands and Iran in the 20th century have been forbidden a “right of return.” Will this Duke event include their narratives? Holocaust survivors live right here in the Triangle. Were any of their stories as refugees included or even considered?

Scheduling an event of interest to the Jewish community on Passover and Shabbat is at best insensitive. Duke University needs to learn to respect Jewish holidays and holy days (and that of other religions also) and to replace academic activism with balanced programming that does not selectively demonize one people. 

Congressman Holding Writes Secretary of Education Devos About Anti-Semitic UNC/Duke Conference

The UNC and Duke Departments of Middle East and Islamic Studies cosponsored an Israel-bashing conference, camouflaged as a conference on Gaza, March 22-24, 2019. Read all about this Israel-hate conference here.

Congressman George Holding, representing North Carolina’s 2nd District, wrote this impressive letter to Secretary of Education Betsy Devos. Congressman Holding requested that the Department of Education launch a full investigation “to determine the facts.”


Anti-Semitism Follows UNC’s Sponsorship of Israel-Bashing Conference

The UNC and Duke Departments of Middle East and Islamic Studies cosponsored an Israel-bashing conference, camouflaged as a conference on Gaza, March 22-24, 2019. Read all about this Israel-hate conference here

Following the conference, anti-Semitic posters have appeared on UNC’s campus which is being investigated by the police. 

Now a video has been published documenting blatant anti-Semitism at this conference. The audience is shown cheering as a musical act sings his self declared “anti-Semitic song.”

Watch the important video and read Voice4Israel board member Marcia Harris’ excellent letter below to UNC Chancellor Kevin M. Guskiewicz. Also check out this ABC news report Video shows rapper’s performance of anti-Semitic song at UNC event.

Chancellor Guskiewicz:

I am writing to you as a long time employee of UNC (now retired) and a parent of an alumnus. I am Jewish.

I am deeply concerned about the recent antisemitic acts at UNC. But I am not surprised. UNC’s tolerance – and even sponsorship – of speakers and conferences on campus that are blatantly anti-Israel and in some cases, openly antisemitic have fostered an atmosphere that promotes this type of activity. (If you have not seen the video of the concert on the first evening of the Gaza Conference, I urge you to take just a few minutes to view it.

It is disgraceful that UNC would allow, and actually sponsor, programs that would not be tolerated against any other minority group.

Many Jewish community members wrote letters to you and to the Board of Governors prior to Linda Sarsour’s talk at the School of Public Health and to the Gaza Conference pleading that these activities be cancelled or at least balanced by a pro-Israel speaker, but these were totally ignored. Unfortunately much damage has now been done.

Students who attended the UNC Conflict Over Gaza Conference did not hear  academic debate and scholarly inquiry, but were exposed to days of academic activism  and indoctrination against Israel. Whatever happened to balance and unbiased education?

I implore  you to work with UNC’s administrators to develop policies that prevent the continued biased,  unbalanced, academic attack on Israel and the Jewish people.

Interview with Leader of Israeli Mission to the Moon

Today Israel plans to become the fourth country to land on the moon.

In honor of this tremendous achievement, Voice4Israel brings you this interview with Yonatan Weintraub who is one of the leaders of the Israeli mission to the moon.

Here is how to watch the Israeli moon landing live. 

Yonatan Weintraub is an Electrical Engineering master student and graduate of space studies of the International Space University held at NASA. He gained hands-on experience in space technologies by working as a satellite system engineer for the Israeli Aerospace Industries. Yonatan believes that it is important to nurture the next generation of space researchers and therefore taught high-school students space engineering.

Interview with Yonatan Weintraub.

What were the biggest challenges while designing and operating the historic mission.

I think the biggest challenge was to convince the people around us that this is possible to do. In the beginning there were many skeptics and many people that thought that it wouldn’t happen. A lot of those people where right. It was our job to do the homework, come up with a better design, get the export on board and try again and again until eventually we had the best team including Israeli Aerospace Industries who know how to build satellites, we had an engineering team in SpaceIL, volunteers, donors like Morris Kahn and others.

We call this mission from beer to the moon! Could you kindly elaborate.

We started 3 engineers at the bar in Holon, and decided to go for the moon. We registered for a competition organized by Google Lunar X-Prize to send the first private robotic mission to the moon, and the program has been running ever since

Could you say something about the mood in the Halon bar the night the mission was born.

Well I had a few beers, we had the feeling that we might be able to pull it off. I didn’t know back than if we will make it, but it seems like a good idea to try.

Was the initial sketch of Beresheet done on a paper napkin.

Yes. Its actually online somewhere.

We call this mission a path breaking new era in world space history. Can you please comment.

This is the first private interplanetary mission, if we succeed than we show that you can build a mission to the moon at 10% of the cost. We also use the mission as a tool for inspiring kids to have careers in sciences, SpaceIL volunteers have reached over 1M kids, and I hope some of them will choose science as careers.

Do you collaborate with NASA or any other agency?

Yes, we collaborate with NASA about scientific experiment as well as ground stations.

What is the most amazing thing you have experienced during this process?

Working with kids is rewarding, helps you keep on moving even on hard days. Like any startup has.

How do you build a spaceship? Was it all done in Israel? And what is the hardest part of building it?

All of it was done in Israeli Aerospace Industries

Your spaceship is now part of an educational book for children. Do you think that will inspire a new generation of scientists?

I hope so..

Do you think that Israel will have it’s own launch pads at some point?

It already has one in Palmachim. 

What is your most memorable moment from this journey?

The launch. The sky lit up as we saw our dream go to space.

Conflict Over Gaza

The UNC and Duke Departments of Middle East and Islamic Studies cosponsored an Israel-bashing conference, camouflaged as a conference on Gaza, March 22-24, 2019. The majority of this conference was held on Shabbat, thus preventing observant members of the Jewish community from attending.

Photographs glorifying terrorism against Israel and Jews were prominently displayed such as a man yielding a fire kite to burn and kill Israelis. One speaker even refused to speak with a Jewish student. UNC and Duke did not include or invite a single mainstream pro-Israel group or speaker.

Read all about this hateful conference here and read Barry Strock’s review below. 

Conflict Over Gaza

by Barry Srock

On March 22 to 24, 2019, about 100 people attended a 3-day pro-Gaza program called “Conflict Over Gaza”at UNC Center for Middle East and Islamic Studies that was well planned and managed including biased and distorted claims against Israel. Friday night began a reception and a musical hip-hop concert. The entire program was supported by 18 UNC departments, Duke University and a half dozen Rotary Clubs. Saturday morning started with a well-organized registration process with continental breakfast. This was followed by a daylong series of panel discussions. The attendees enjoyed wonderfully prepared Gazan recipes from Lalla El Haddad’s Gaza Kitchen Cookbook.

On Saturday, except for one panel discussion, the other four panel discussions were a well focused, singled sided, propaganda selling of the general theme that Palestinians are an indigenous tribe with unlimited and irrevocable rights without any responsibility, obligations of accountability for any consequences due to their actions. The speakers’ messages indicated that Israel is to blame for all the Palestinian hardships.  The speakers claimed that Gazans and Palestinians should be held harmless to their hardships.

There was no mention about the Gazans’ and Palestinians’ aggression against Israel in the form of tunnels, missiles or rockets or that the Palestinians initiated four wars.  There was an inference that Allah, Israel, or the international community is obligated to rescue, defend and support the Palestinians through the continued billions of dollars from the international communities. Unfortunately, not much of this money has been used for humanitarian aid and badly needed infrastructure.

One of the NGO presenters refused to correct her statement about a Gazan young boy with genetic defects whose life was saved by Israel accepting him for seven years into their health care system.  In the seventh year, the mother was refused a Palestinian permit to go across the boarder.  The speaker blamed Israel when it was not. The problem came from the Gazan side because of the Palestinian laws and bureaucracies.  Israel took care of the child and his grandfather for seven years straight. Israel made it possible for the grandfather to get work to help support his family.

One speaker was dismissive towards Israel’s ability to create the Iron Dome system alleging that America gave it to them.  America did help financially but it was Israeli ingenuity that made it happen.

The only professional and academically independent and objective panel was with Dr. Nathan Brown, Georgetown and Dr. Nathan Stock. Middle East Institute.  These panelists intelligently discussed the tension between Hamas and Fatah. It was pointed out that Hamas is Arabic for “Islamic Resistance”, which is akin to the Moslem-Brotherhood. Hamas and Fatah cannot even talk to each other negates any regional peace process.  

On a positive note, there were not any overtly anti-Semitic references, only overt anti-Zionist and anti-Israeli comments.

The second day consisted of movies. One of the movies showed an elementary school classroom teaching the children “resistance”  NOT “resourcefulness”and using brainwashing songs to angrily resist what they call Israeli aggression. In the six movies presented it was difficult to see how slanted information can show the hate, anger and resentment born into these people instead of showing grounding for hard work, sacrifice, and prosperity. Health conditions are horrible. It is hard to image their pain, suffering and degradation.

I went to the conference to explore possibilities for the Palestinians and Israeli’s. The conference was telling and distressing. The conference organizers were disillusioned and were trying to sell Gaza as comparable to a successful European or American city. It is a financial, political, economical disaster zone. Supporters of Palestine have aspirations to evolve Gaza into a sovereign nation-state. It is a terrorist haven that is a fumbling failure. The conference sponsors started with hip-hop anti Israel rapper concert at the beginning and experimental cinamagraphic homage to the Gaza Strip to paint an illusionary image for aspiring Palestinian students that Gaza is on the cusp of “arriving”, yet in fact it is on the threshold of demise. The thought of a Gaza nation is a very false impression for the over zealous optimists and progressives who would not survive a minute in the homophobic, misogynistic, chauvinistic, terror managed police state of the Gaza Strip.

According to literature passed out at the conference from, in 2018 there was 52% unemployment and 69% unemployment among young people. This high unemployment rate is a time bomb waiting to implode into anarchy within the Gaza Strip. Seventy percent of the population is under 30. Gaza needs an objective “reality check” to realize that it is a “wanna-be” success that is not happening like Syria and Somalia.  

Unless the world of Gaza does not marketability change, it will be exactly as it is today or worse. In order to become a successful state, there must be change or they will continue to languish. It is necessary for them to become energy independent by using solar energy. They can become food self sufficient by using many of the Israeli agriculture techniques. They can start small and with hard work and encouragement they can turn their lives around. Their government needs to innovate and bring in more humanitarian help and sophisticated services and reduce corruption instead of using the funds given them for tunnels and bombs against Israel.  Certainly, Israelis would like to encourage their neighbors to be healthy rather than neighbors who preach hate against them.

Local Rabbis Urge Orange County to Choose Speakers Who Unite

Linda Sarsour will be the keynote speaker on March 31 in Hillsborough, NC at an event sponsored by Orange County’s Department of Human Rights & Relations and The Orange County Human Relations Commission (HRC) of NC “in honor of women’s history month.” 

Many community members have voiced concerns including Orange County Commissioner Earl McKee who said, “She [Sarsour] will be paid $5000 plus expenses. I only know that I had no part of any of this and am sure that many other well-qualified women could have been asked to speak…This type of conduct will continue until folks rise up and put a stop to it, either through public pressure or at the polls.”

Four prominent local rabbis wrote the public letter below.

Dear Members of the Orange County Human Relations Commission,

We appreciate the mission of the Orange County Human Relations Commission “to promote the equal treatment of all individuals; to protect residents’ lawful interests and their personal dignity; and to prevent public and domestic strife, crime, and unrest within Orange County,” and all the work the Commission has done in the past in service to the community.

We are concerned, however, about the upcoming Women’s History Month “Courageous Conversations” event featuring keynote speaker Linda Sarsour. The Commission has announced that this is an event “… about community unity and bringing people together…” Yet by inviting Ms. Sarsour, whose statements on Zionism and Israel alienate many in the Jewish community, the Human Relations Council is dividing rather than uniting us.

In the wake of the Christchurch and Pittsburgh attacks, and rising Islamophobia and anti-Semitism, it is essential for us to stand united in opposition to all forms of hatred and bigotry. We fully support the Commission’s desire to address women’s history, Islamophobia and discrimination against Muslims; we urge that speakers be chosen who bring all of us together to strengthen our community.

UNC and Duke: This is Not Free Speech, It is Propaganda

Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill have planned an anti-Zionist and anti-Israel conference camouflaged as a conference on Gaza, March 22-24. Several scheduled speakers have compared Israel to Nazis and many others promote boycotting Israel. One of the opening speakers refers to Israel as a “terrorist state.”

The letter below was written by Judith and Lewis Siegel. 

Other letters are archived at Israeli Under Attack at UNC and Duke.

Dear President Price,

We always thought that Duke was a great university. But a great university should not be trafficking in lies and then cry “free speech.” Nor should a great university pile up on a threatened nation and people so as to permit its enemies to falsely propagandize the public. That is what will be happening this week-end. That alone would be bad enough. But to not even provide a balance – that is beyond the pale!

We can’t provide a complete historical background, but just to show a few common lies: The claim is made that Israel occupies Gaza. ISRAEL UNILATERALLY WITHDREW FIFTEEN YEARS AGO. It left behind all its agricultural infrastructure worth tens of millions of dollars, hoping it would enable Gaza to flourish. Gazans destroyed it all. Hate is apparently more important. Gaza is potentially a rich seaport and could have a flourishing tourist industry. But Hamas’s message of hate, its use of Gaza resources to fund its tunnels and rockets, its endless attacks on Israelis and its murder of any Gazans who dare to oppose it has kept it poor and desperate.

We are disappointed in Duke beyond words. We have a deep connection. Our son (A.B. Duke scholar, summa com laude) graduated from Duke. Lewis was a Duke faculty member for 42 years. He was Chairman of the Academic Council, and Vice-Provost and Dean of the Graduate School for 15 years. Judith trained Duke Law interns at the North Central Legal Assistance Program.

Please don’t bother to send a form reply about freedom of speech. Judith, an attorney, is well-versed in the First Amendment and our son is one of the leading First Amendment attorneys in the country. THIS IS NOT FREE SPEECH. IT IS PROPAGANDA.

The only way we see that Duke can redeem itself is to have a seminar that will expose what is really happening in Gaza, why Israel must defend itself against an organization like Hamas that endangers Israel’s very existence, so as to present the balance that the current seminar lacks.

Disgusted by UNC and Duke Anti-Israel Conference

Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill have planned an anti-Zionist and anti-Israel conference camouflaged as a conference on Gaza, March 22-24. Several scheduled speakers have compared Israel to Nazis and many others promote boycotting Israel. One of the opening speakers refers to Israel as a “terrorist state.”

The letter below was written by Gabriel Szulik and Orit Ramler Szulik.

Other letters are archived at Israeli Under Attack at UNC and Duke.

To all Duke University and UNC leaders,

My wife Orit and I are writing to BEG you to reconsider sponsoring this event titled “Conflict Over Gaza: People, Politics, and Possibilities” which is scheduled for March 22-24. The conference is sponsored by UNC’s Center for Middle East and Islamic Studies and the Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies. Co-sponsors include many departments and organizations, including the Gillings School of Global Public Health.

Our family has lived in the Durham-Chapel Hill area for 21 years now, I attended Duke’s Fuqua Business School in 1998-2000, and my wife currently works as a Coach at the Delta Leadership program at Duke. She also sits on the Board of Advisors of the Nursing School at Duke.

We are simply disgusted and very disappointed by the agenda and attendees of this conference, all showing an anti-Israel and pro-BDS bias, which is unacceptable and speaks of the poor judgement by Duke and UNC in hosting this event. The conference doesn’t have a single speaker/presenter who will present the other side of the Gaza story, which includes the terrorizing of thousands of Israelis who constantly live under rocket attacks and terrorist threats; the fact that Gaza is governed by a designated terrorist organization, and the fact that Israel withdrew from Gaza almost 15 years ago and yet it continues to be blamed for the economic and social debacle in Gaza caused by Hamas.

Please reconsider this decision and cancel your sponsorship of this event, so you can preserve a moral standing and show that this kind of biased, anti-Israel propaganda is not tolerated at your prestigious academic institutions.
