Robert Spencer: Harvard to Host Lecture Likening Eurabia to the The Protocols of the Elders of Zion


In yet another attempt to demonize resistance to jihad terror, the Harvard Divinity School Public Events Calendar is featuring a lecture next week likening “Islamophobia” to anti-Semitism.

Entitled “When the Elders of Zion Relocated to Eurabia: Conspiratorial Racialisation in Antisemitism and Islamophobia,” the lecture features Reza Zia-Ebrahimi, Associate Professor in History at King’s College London, who “builds on recent comparative research on antisemitism and Islamophobia to argue that the two display similar dynamics in representing their target population as a hostile race (a process referred to as ‘racialization’). His research suggests that conspiracy theories of the ‘world Jewish conspiracy’ type, and their Islamophobic equivalent, the ‘Islamisation of Europe’ type, are powerful enablers of racialization, something that the literature has so far neglected.”

The event announcement continues: “To show the similar dynamics of what he calls ‘conspiratorial racialization’, Zia-Ebrahimi provides a textual comparison between The Protocols of the Elders of Zion (1903) and Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis (2005).”

Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis is Bat Ye’or’s groundbreaking 2005 study of how, after the oil crisis of 1973, the European Community and the Arab League began the Euro-Arab Dialogue, resulting in a series of agreements with the Arab League for political, economic, and cultural cooperation. The word “Eurabia” was used in the Euro-Arab Dialogue documents. These agreements were markedly one-sided, and paved the way for massive Muslim migration into Europe, without assimilation.

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion was a 1903 czarist forgery purporting to depict leading Jews plotting world domination. It became the basis and justification for the conspiratorial anti-Semitism of the National Socialists (Nazis) in Germany and others.

Now at Harvard’s Alwaleed Islamic Studies Program, funded by Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal, Reza Zia-Ebrahimi, Associate Professor in History at King’s College London, will give a lecture equating the two. The object, obviously, is to discredit Bat Ye’or’s work by portraying it as conspiracy paranoia that leads to genocide.

Just a few obvious problems with this endeavor: Zia-Ebrahimi’s lecture is entitled “When the Elders of Zion Relocated to Eurabia: Conspiratorial Racialisation in Antisemitism and Islamophobia,” but neither Islam nor Islamophobia are races, as far as I know. Zia-Ebrahimi probably means, however, that Muslims are being “racialized,” i.e., treated as a racial category, by being discriminated against and harassed collectively in a racist, xenophobic, Islamophobic Europe, but this is sheer fantasy, as in reality European governments have been avid to appease and accommodate their restive and rapidly growing Muslim populations.

What’s more, Zia-Ebrahimi’s thesis ignores the fact that Muslim migrants in Europe have brought the Continent to a crisis that is a cause for genuine concern, and that concern can in no honest way be likened to the baseless stigmatizing of the Jews. All of the Islamic jihadis who murdered 130 people in Paris in a series of jihad attacks in November 2015 were refugees who had recently been welcomed into Europe. Germany’s domestic intelligence agency admitted in July 2017 that hundreds of jihadis had entered the country among the refugees, and that 24,000 jihadis were active in Germany. Muslim migrants in Europe have also been responsible for an appalling epidemic of rape, sexual assault, theft, petty crime, and looting. In the first half of 2016, migrants in Germany, who are overwhelmingly Muslim, committed 142,500 crimes, an average of 780 every day.

This was a significant increase from 2015, during which migrants committed 200,000 crimes. On New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2015, Muslim migrants committed as many as 2,000 mass rapes and sexual assaults in Cologne, Stockholm, and other major European cities. Muslim migrants have made Malmö, once a peaceful city, crime-ridden and hazardous. In Sweden, Muslim migrants from Afghanistan are 79 times more likely to commit rape and other sexual crimes than native Swedes. Migrants and refugees commit 92 percent of rapes in Sweden. Rapists in Sweden come from Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Eritrea, Syria, Gambia, Iran, Palestine, Chile, and Kosovo, in that order; rapists of Swedish background do not exist in sufficient numbers to make the top ten, and all the nations on that list except Chile and Eritrea are majority Muslim. Even before the migrant influx, while on a speaking tour in Germany in 2011, I was told by the sixteen-year-old daughter of one of the event organizers that she was routinely harassed on the way to school: Muslims on the commuter trains would call her a “whore” and a “slut” because her hair and arms were not covered. This happened, she said, every day.

So is concern for all this just “Islamophobia” and “conspiratorial racialization”? So Reza Zia-Ebrahimi, Alwaleed bin Talal, and Harvard University would have you believe. But in reality, this lecture is just another example of the endeavor by the political and academic elites to stigmatize any concern for jihad terror and Sharia oppression as “Islamophobia” and “racism.” This is the phenomenon I discuss in my new book Confessions of an Islamophobe: preorder your copy here now. It also illustrates yet again how universities today are not centers of higher learning, but recruitment centers for Antifa and boot camps for hard-Left indoctrination.

    One other distinction … modern non-Islamic anti-Semites (actually anti-Jews) must foment their hatred from the sidelines with little support while Islamic anti-Semitic bigots are supported by the West’s taxpayers, the West’s academic and educational institutions, the West’s military hardware, and in some cases our armies too, and it doesn’t stop there. Both Jewish and Christian Leftists support Islamic Supremacy, bigotry, racism, among its other profoundly disturbing faults.

    We are being over run by Islamonazis – but it is not the Islamonazis who have the power to do this: It is all being done by Leftonazis who have hijacked our culture, our law, and our nations to use as weapons against us.

    Throw out the Left-nazis and we can at least get some breathing room between us and the Islamonazis.

    This attempt to make “Islamophobia” a dirty word thru this presenter is clearly without merit or any substantive evidence of truth. As the article states the Protocols of the Elders of Zion was a fallacious attempt to blame the world of Judaism for the Czar’s problems which led to his being deposed and assassinated by the Bolsheviks in the early 20th century, and it was not a Judaic movement. In fact, the Bolsheviks and the Czar’s supporters committed many acts of mayhem against the Russian Jewish communities for many years (called Pogroms) even before the false “Protocols” which was additional proof of the anti-Semitism directed at the Jewish people. The Jews were never actively committing acts of terror against any other group. They were the ones against whom acts of terror were being committed. That is the true history of those times. The difference is so obvious, when one understands that Jihad is built into a belief system that promotes and teaches acts of terror as being required by its believers. The Jewish world does not now have, nor did it ever have within its belief system such horrible tenants as does Islam. We all have a righteous fear of Islam. Whatever name you put on that fear is of no meaning. The fact is that Islam requires its believers, and preaches to its believers, that they are superior, that they must dominate, that they must overthrow any government that is not Islamic and force the sharia legal system, a system that lacks due process and equal protection, especially against women and non-Muslims, and, as to Jews, directs these believers to kill them. It is a poison disguised as a purported religion. That becomes a righteous fear, and I am proud of my personal islamophobia.

    Rather funny since Muslims, along with neo-nazis, are the biggest propagators of the Protocols, but now the Muslims acknowledge the Protocols as fake when it comes to comparing it to Islamophobia? These Muslims are masters when it comes to duplicity by saying totally contradictory things at the same time and using each contradictory statement to their advantage. Quite a clever strategy!

      You’re right. I saw a “documentary” aired on Egyptian TV this century that presented the Protocols of Elders of Zion as historical fact. The “documentary” can be found on MEMRI.

    The difference being that the non-existent Priorory Zionists’ killed nobody while the Islamists are killing hundreds each day around the world.
