'A night in a gas chamber for u' tweets teacher

  • Sace America
In a new blog Ant Katz expresses how flabbergasted he is by the outing of Cassim Mahomed Jasat (pictured), a KZN teacher whose blatant anti-Semitism includes posting pictures in public of school kids dancing with a Nazi flag. Ant says he found out about it “thanks to Spotlighting saying things like: ‘LIES LIES LIES. U JEWS ARE FULL OF IT. THEY ONE LOT OF HERPES FILLED MOT**********’ and ‘ONE NIGHT IN A GAS CHAMBER FOR YOU’ - and to Fred Fischer of Keren Hayesod in Germany picking up on it and writing to the SACE and the media.
by STAFF REPORTER | Dec 23, 2015

“A recent German Facebook friend, Fred Fischer of Keren Hayesod in Munich, discovered something on the page of one of my earliest Facebook (and personal) connections, Spotlighting SA,” writes Katz. Fischer has written a formal complaint to the South African Council for Educators (SACE).

Katz paraphrases the opening of Fred’s letter to SACE (see full letter in blog), whom he asked: (i) was Jasat in fact an SA Government employee?; (ii) Does SACE tolerate such hateful posts against Jews?; and (iii) were they aware that Jasat “wants to send people into gas chambers again”!

Katz Ant tall“We have become so used to the propaganda war being waged against us that we have learned to live with these lies all around us, all the time,” blogs Katz. “Maybe we are the ones to blame. Maybe we should be the ones who bear the shame for simply letting them go.”



RIGHT: Ant Katz


Fischer had been made aware of the activities of the SA schoolteacher by SpotlightingSA, causing him to write to the SACE: “It is absolutely insane and as a Jew and leader of an Israeli institution, this is absolutely unacceptable for me.

"Be sure, I will spread the word about this as well as many others do.

"Be sure, I will send this message in bcc to many other addressees in your country, government and around the world. Especially the Jewish press!” Fisher wrote to SACE.

And so, says Katz, he went a-Googling. He wanted to know more about the SACE, Fred, and Cassim Mahomed Jasat. “Just to see where this was going and if it would be a story for a nosey investigative journalist like myself,” he says.

“I simply couldn't help myself. I had to keep looking. What I found did not paint a pretty picture. Not at all!

“The more I found, the more I wanted to look deeper.” Katz adds that it quickly became obvious to him that he had “come to the point of losing any possible objectivity in this matter”, and that he would be posting it “as a blog (my opinion) as against a news story (pure facts, from all sides, which would require me to interview Mr Jasat, and I cannot face the thought of talking to the man).

Katz did a lot more research, the result of which is his new blog: Meet an inexcusable human being. Read this, it is important.

    And to think that I am anti Islam and racist. These guys make me look like an infant.
    I mean, with the name of mohammed, and Jasat, and Abdul,?!!! You surely would not expect any better.
    Islam and Judaism are surely not compatible and will never be.

    The cure for this kind of anti Semitism is freely available at sports shops. Its called a " baseball bat" .
    Used sparingly, this instrument cures many maladies.

    WHY DIDNT U TAKE WHITES WHO SPREAD MUCH MORE HATRED TO TASK? ARE U RACIST?
    Hi Yusuf, this is a Jewish website and is for and about South African Jews. We disavow any and all racism. We are neither anti-Muslim not anti-Palestinian.
    However, we report on that which affects out own community. There are whites, blacks and people of all hues, even some of them born-Jews who, from time to time, make racist remarks about Jews. We certainly do bring it to our users' attention when this occurs. We have covered Snowy White's If you are aware of any such Jew-hatred, by any people of any race, please feel free to bring it to my attention - online.editor.co.za

    Yusuf, you should be reading your quran and not the SAJR. Jassat is a mutant racist, anti semite and barbarous excuse for a human being

    History tels DONT MESS WITH US JEWS.
    You will never learn.

    To comment "typical Muslim" is to be guilty of the very same racism perpetrated by anti-semites.  Racism is irrational and dangerous, whether practiced against or by Jews. 
  9. 9 nat cheiman 30 Dec
    Merv, why is " typical muslim" racist?
  10. 8 Ant Katz 31 Dec
    Nat, would you consider "typical Jew" - when said by a gentile - hurtful in any way?
  11. 7 nat cheiman 31 Dec
    Not at all Ant. This has been said on occasions and although not in good taste, it certainly isn't racist and I never considered it to be such. It was done to needle me.
    Ant, your platform to scream " racist"  every time someone says something bad about [ANT - it isn't about the platform, Nat. The words I have removed here are considered illegal under SA and Israeli law.] 
    I am [ANT - Nat, ask a lawyer, not a bigot about this. Again, the words I have removed here are illegal. If one is an anti-Semite they are racist. Why? Because they hate all Jews. (Incidentally, in some countries, like SA, Jews are not considered a race but a religious group, in the UK we are a race). But still it is racism and hate-speech. Are you proposing that we should live under a free-speech with no boundaries Constitution like that of the US, where you can be an anti-Semite legally? If so, please petition your local MP and ask them to try and change the constitution. Until then, I am tasked with protecting the Constitution which, incidentally, also protects Jews. If I allow you to break the law, my transgression is much bigger than yours!] 

    That does not mean I am a racist [ANT - I'm afraid it does] My statements are not inflammatory [ANT - I'm afraid they are] but Jews need to stick together if we are to survive.

    [ANT - Large amounts of this comment have been removed as they are either illegal or incorrect. I shudder to think of the possible consequences should some of the factual inaccuracies find themselves in the hands of the enemies of Israel and/or Jews.]

    Nat, please note the comment placed this afternoon by Gary SEE HERE in which he vents his anger and frustration without breaking the law. I have no intention of spending another two hours sending you a private e-mail explaining WHY you break the law so frequently as I am sure you have not bothered to read any of my previous attempts. For what its worth, I am moderating comments during the holidays. I am sure you will have noticed that many of your comments are simply deleted by moderators lately and are not escalated to me. You are a very high maintenance user.

    WHAT YOU HAVE DONE IS ILLEGAL......YOUR BLOG AGAINST JASAT. SPOTLIGHTING TOOK SELECTIVE POSTS. YOU HAVE WRITTEN WHAT YOU CHOOSE TO WRITE. DID YOU SEE THE HATE SPEECH THAT JASSAT WAS SUBGICATED TO? HE WAS CALLED THE WORSE OF NAMES. ISLAMAPHOBIA. WE HAVE EVERYTHING SCREENSHOT. YOUR ILLEGAL BLOG IS GOING TO HAND JASSAT A CASE TO SUE YOU. EVERYTHING WAS TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT. THE SAHRC WILL KICK YOUR CASE RIGHT UP YOU KNOW WHERE. HE WAS RIDICULED AND MADE A MOCKERY OF. YOU WANT HIM OUT OF HIS PTOFESSION? U SEE A NAZI FLAG? WHERE? I DONT SEE ONE. O SEE A CHILD RINNING AROUND WITH A RED FLAG. ITS GONNA BE DIFFICULT TO PTOVE ANYTHING. IN FACT I SUGGEST U REMOVE THIS BLOG IMMEDIATELY. YOU STANND NO GROUNDS. I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING TO CHECK IF JASSAT HAS COMMENTED OR POSTED MORE OF YOUR SO CALLED ANYI-SEMITIC POSTS. NOTHING. REMOVE IT OR MORE TROUBLE COMING YOUR WAY.
  14. 4 nat cheiman 06 Jan
    YUSUF, please describe to me what subgicated means because this could make all the difference to whether I think Jassat is a Nazi or an anti semite or just a plain buffoon
  15. 3 nat cheiman 06 Jan
    Ant, your moderator has suggested that " large amounts of my comment .....are illegal or incorrect" . May I ask which part is incorrect? ( Its not my intention to reflect inaccuracies)

    We've been through this many times.
    It is okay to say: "I hate the Jews who did this or that..." 
    It is illegal to say: "I hate ALL Jews due to this or that..." 
  16. 2 nat cheiman 07 Jan
    Ant, thankyou for your patience in these matters.
    Please place on record that at no time did I say that I hate all Muslims.

    Take it as done. However, allow me to remind you of the very numerous occasions that we have had to either delete or edit your comments to ensure that you are not recorded as having said that  -ANT KATZ
  17. 1 nat cheiman 07 Jan
    Indeed, Ant. I do not hate all ...  

    See, I saved you again from a potential series of visits to the Equality Court (likely after a visit or six)  via the SAHRC first} alongside our Editor and Chairman. You're a real little closet-Hitler, aren't you? 
    Now those are the illegal tendencies you have to watch. Remember, from Monday most of your posts will not come through me and many will be simply deleted. So write, read, think, amend, post! WRTAP     -
