      Zionist Org Fights New Judeo-Phobic iTunes App


      The World Zionist Organization has written a letter to Tim Cook the head of the Apple corporation decrying a new Judeo-phobic iTunes application. The Arabic-language Protocols of the Elders of Zion can be downloaded from iTunes.
       
      Yaakov Hagoel the Head of the Department for Countering Antisemism wrote "just as Apple would never tolerate the sale of hardcore pornography or extreme violence, neither should it support the sale of Antisemitic incitement."
       
      Hagoel's global team of young volunteers have been using the internet and social media to combat Judeo-phobic incidents. They have created an online petition for activists to send to Apple. It can be viewed by clicking here. http://www.izionist.org/en/itunes-antisemitic-app/
       
      The Protocols of the Elders of Zion was invented in the late 19th-century Russia’s secret police to slander the Jewish community and justify violence against them. It quotes non-existent Jewish books and invents misinformation about Jewish rituals and beliefs.
