Antisemitic flyers began emerging from networked printers at several US universities on Thursday, The Algemeiner has learned.

According to the student newspaper at Chicago’s DePaul University, faculty received an email alerting them that printers at the school had been hacked, and “antisemitic and white supremacist flyers [were] appearing in output trays throughout DePaul’s campus.”

On Friday, CBSChicago reported that numerous schools were experiencing the same attack. Among these were: Princeton University, Brown University, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Other schools that had fallen prey to the same phenomenon, though it is not clear when, include: Smith College, the University of California, Santa Cruz, Northeastern University, the University of Rhode Island, the University of Connecticut and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

According to CBSChicago, Robert Trestan, director of the Anti-Defamation League’s New England office, said that it appears to be the work of a white power group. The fliers, he said, are addressed to “white men,” disparage Jewish people and include links to a neo-Nazi website.

A notice sent from the University of Minnesota’s “Office of Equity and Diversity,” obtained by The Algemeiner, describes the flyers as “graphic, antisemitic and racially charged.”

    A UN designated committee of four chaired by Richard Goldstone, a respected South African jurist, investigated Israel’s “Cast Lead” assault on Gaza. Their report concluded Israel had committed numerous specifically described war crimes. Judge Goldstone had chosen integrity over loyalty to his Jewish ethnicity. For this, he was unmercifully ostracized and threatened with both death and exclusion from his granddaughter’s Bat Mitzvah. The Judge caved, but lacked authority to rescind the report. The three other UN Committee members unanimously reaffirmed their findings. The UN Report and its verdict condemning Israel stand. (Ref: Peoples Daily of Dec.12, 2011) However qualified, Merrick Garland would be the fourth Jew of the nine Supreme Court Justices and by choice or threat, certain to further Israel’s occupation of our United States of America.

    The hackers’ identity is suspect. Few “white supremacist” groups possess the capacity to hack anything. It’s most likely the work of arabs or Iranians, possibly working with a couple of neo-Nazi types.

    Not that I needed reminding, but Yad VaShem provided an extremely powerful reminder that prior to the Holocaust, the Nazis orchestrated a comprehensive campaign to dehumanize Jews and Judaism, exactly like today’s Islamists and radical Moslems and liberals are doing with regard to “Zionism, Zionists and Israel”, all of which are innuendoes and code words for Jews.

    The Western media, liberal Jews, European do-gooders, liberal Christian churches and their liberal fellow travelers have no historical memory, have no shame and little or no moral compass to understand that Western (so-called Judeo-Christian values and culture upon which our Western societies are based, are squarely within the target of those who are at war with the West, from within and without, for whatever alleged wrongs that others, who do not share those values and have no respect for those values have allegedly suffered.

    There are many lessons one can learn from a visit to Yad VaShem, but with little imagination, one can see that that the West has learned nothing from the Holocaust and more than likely is doomed to have to go through something much worse until what is left of the world wakes up to the reality that human values and dignity are not “relative”, but are universal absolutes and begin with the sheva mitzvos bnei Noach, the Seven Commandments of the Children of Noah.
