Belgian paper uses vile anti-semitic tactics out of the 1930s and 40s

The Belgian newspaper De Morgen's caused an outrage over a column they published where a writer not only took the cliched route accusing Israel of "occupation", they even resorted to declaring them possessors of ugly noses:
In an unusual move, Israel’s embassy in Belgium condemned a local daily for printing and defending an op-ed in which Jews are described as land thieves with ugly noses and a superiority complex.

The embassy addressed the July 27 op-ed by Dimitri Verhulst on Wednesday, writing on Twitter that it “is deeply shocked by the publication in Belgian newspaper De Morgen of a blatantly anti-Semitic article.”

Israel rarely comments on articles published in commercial media in democratic countries.

Ambassador Emmanuel Nahshon wrote on Twitter that his embassy “will fight forcefully and uncompromisingly against anti-Semitism, which is a crime not only targeting the Jewish community but against any democratic and tolerant society.”
The editor of the paper, predictably, is defending the revoltingly written article:
The editor of a prestigious Belgian daily defended an op-ed described as anti-Semitic, saying its critics were trying to silence criticism of Israel.

The column, written by Dimitri Verhulst, was published July 27 in De Morgen and quickly drew outrage. It describes Jews in Israel as land thieves with a religious superiority complex and says they have “ugly noses.”

“We clearly do not view the text as anti-Semitic. Otherwise we wouldn’t have published it. Neither did the author intend it as anti-Semitic,” Bart Eeckhout, De Morgen’s editor in chief, wrote in response to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. “The op-ed surely is a harsh criticism on Israel’s politics toward the Palestinian people. It is written in a hard, sarcastic fashion and it foretells the current uproar, stating that any hard criticism on Israel will always be reinterpreted as anti-Semitism. Anti-Semitism is a very serious allegation, which we think is used too easily in this case, in a way to silence the debate about Israel’s policies.”
And all this time, Belgium crumbles as jihadists take over. It's clear where the paper's staff stands, then. They don't even make distinctions between what constitutes a valid critique and what doesn't, nor do they consider crudeness a bad example. Such a vile disgrace.

Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

“Christmas, the most joyous of holidays
to Christians, has been among the most
dreaded of days for Jews throughout history.

In many parts of Europe it was a time
for pogroms and beatings; Jews were
to be punished for their refusal to
acknowledge the divinity of Jesus.”

Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

“When Christianity became the official
religion of the Roman Empire in the
4th century, the church achieved the
political power to assure that its
prophecy of Jewish failure was fulfilled.

Jews were excluded from positions of
influence, and their rights:
political, economic, social,
and religious -- were taken away.

It became a civic virtue, as well as
a religious obligation, to contribute
to the vilification of the Jews.

The Code of Justinian, enacted in 534 CE,
curtailed Jewish freedom of worship,
banned Jews from holding public office,
and divested them of most property rights.”

Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

Around year 1922 Judge Learned Hand said
this about anti-Jewish quotas at Harvard:

“I cannot agree that a limitation based
upon race will in the end work out
any good purpose.

If the Jew does not mix well with the
Christian, it is no answer to segregate him.

Most of the qualities which the Christian
dislikes in him are, I believe, the direct
result of that very policy in the past...”
