Screaming about it being unfair doesn't make what Lula said untrue. Just ask the ICJ.

One of the largest destinations in South America of German immigrants, in a part of Brazil there is the home of one of the largest Nazi party affiliates outside Germany. So, even with a small Jewish population in Brazil, it is not surprising to see antisemitism grow among people who have never even met a Jewish person.

Other countries really rely on usaid, so they'll go whatever their donor said.

Fortunately Brazil have no reliance for usaid, so they can speak up their heart conscience.

Not only that some countries heavily influenced by lobbyist

.

Across Atlantic.

What are you writing about?

Da Silva stating that the Palestinians are being targeted for extermination is absolutely correct when Israeli politicians are on the record as stating that any child over 4 years of age is a ‘Hamas supporter’

The over 30:000 murdered certainly backs up their words too.

”Nazi party affiliates”

The Nazis were defeated at the end of the last Great War.

Anyone opposing the Genocide is an antisemite according to you?

Absolute Nonsense!

Countries US gives aid to in the top ten include Yemen, Afghanistan, Egypt, and Jordan. Does that aid affect their views on Israel's war on the Islamic terrorists?

Brazil has less than 2,000 Jews in the entire country. Brazilians image of an imaginary Jew is not formed by how much financial aid the country receives but with the depths of the stereotypes of Jews that gives rise to basic antisemitism.

56% of Brazilians are black, but make up 75% of murder victims, and 75% of those killed by police.

Blacks make up just 18% of those in congress.

Doesn't sound like the people need much of another reason to spread their hate-driven conspiracies of the Jewish people who, again, make up less than 2,000 in the entire country.

How many non Jews immigrated to Israel in the last decade?

Zero.

Non Jews are blocked from doing so.

That seems quite racist,no?

What does this have to do with anything in the article above?

I would be ok with sanctioning countries that discriminate based on religion, but it would need to be all of them to make it fair, no?

""Brazil's president alleged Saturday that Israel is committing genocide against Palestinians, doubling down on harsh rhetoric after stirring controversy a week earlier by comparing Israel’s military offensive in Gaza to the Nazi Holocaust.""

The only two differences between the two is that Nazi's did it without the so called " Free World" Support, and their target was Jews in Europe.

Anyone who thinks that this is not the result of what the Nazi's did in WW2 is either Delusional or Ignorant.

I don’t believe the death toll has reached 30,000 yet. Also, 12,000 of those killed are estimated to be Hamas militants

Israeli intel confirms Gaza health ministry stats 'reliable' (newarab.com)

This news story references Yuval Abraham on X and Hebrew Language website "Local Call "

It says Israel Intel relying on civilian death numbers from Gaza Health Ministry.

Death figure is around 30,000.

Less denial please.

Death figure is around 30,000.

Care to post a link? I quickly googled it and it said the numbers were around 28 to 29 thousand but hadn’t reached 30,000 yet

120,000 Jews in Brazil according to the Brazil Jewish Society.

Not a small number. More than 2000 eh Zibella ?

Calls of an "anti Semitic trope " itself a "trope."

Even this article refutes GuruMick:

raising the overall toll in nearly five months of war to 29,606. 

Regardless, it is a war. Hold accountable every other country at war in which women and children are killed.

Yemen--400,000 civilins. Syris---600,000 civilians.

Israel's war is a minor conflict in comparison. Israel is also complying with international law in contrast.

You’re correct and we both agree. The comment I was responding to said the death figure was over 30,000, which is false

How did "blacks " get to Brazil.?

Ah...maybe slavery .

Most Brazilians have some African identity.

Nice country...spent 3 months there for the Carnaval period.

I could'nt Samba to save my life though.

I say 30,000 deaths...Ziballa says 29,600 deaths ""refutes " my statement.

Lord give me strength.......

25,000 less than that.

Brazil (95,000)

https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/countries-with-the-largest-jewish-populations.html

Not a small number. 

Out of 209 Million people.

Is that .04%? Math check please.

So, with such a minuscule number of Jews in Brazil is it highly unlikely other Brazilians interact with them yet they formulate such intense hatred of the Jews.
