    Yesterday we posted a video of Leen confronting Chelsea Clinton at a vigil for the victims of the white supremacist New Zealand mosque massacre. Today, we woke up to over 100,000 people talking about it on Twitter. Needless to say, this is not what we expected. We went to the vigil for one reason: to grieve the loss of innocent lives that were stolen from this world by vile hatred. We wanted to join our friends and colleagues in a time of heartbreak and agony, to remember the 49 Muslims who were murdered for being Muslim. As a Jewish American-Israeli...

    Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib said on Sunday that Islamophobia is a problem on both sides of the aisle in Congress. The remarks from the Michigan congresswoman who, along with Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, is one of only two Muslim women in Congress, came during a discussion about criticism directed at Omar over accusations of anti-Semitism regarding her controversial comments about Israel, including her assertions of its influence on U.S. foreign policy. "I pause and think to myself 'is it because she's a black American and she's Muslim?' And so that's where I pause and say to myself, 'Is there an...

    Donald Trump Jr. is defending Chelsea Clinton after the former first daughter was blasted by NYU students who blamed her tweet for the New Zealand mosque attacks. “It’s sickening to see people blame @ChelseaClinton for the NZ attacks because she spoke out against anti-Semitism,” Trump tweeted Saturday. “We should all be condemning anti-Semitism & all forms of hate. Chelsea should be praised for speaking up. Anyone who doesn’t understand this is part of the problem.” The political foes became bedfellows after an NYU student confronted Clinton, who is pregnant with her third child, at a Friday night vigil for the...

    Chelsea Clinton attended an interfaith vigil in memory of the 49 Muslim souls slain in yesterday's terror attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, but students at New York University lashed out at Clinton right to her face after feeling "uncomfortable" with her presence because, in their minds, she deserves blame for the tragedy because her previous condemnation of Rep. Ilhan Omar's antisemitic remarks are tantamount to supporting Islamophobia which encouraged the terrorist attack. A twitter user by the name of Esor_Fasa first posted, "@ChelseaClinton is here at the NYU vigil right now. A lot of students feel uncomfortable....

    "I want to thank Minister Farrakhan for offering up a number of precepts that we ought to adhere to,” Rep. James Clyburn said, at an event featuring the anti-Semitic hate group leader. Eight years later, to the month, Clyburn, now the House Majority Whip, defended Rep. Omar’s anti-Semitism. “There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors.’ ‘My parents did this.’ It’s more personal with her," he argued, dismissing the concerns of Jewish legislators. Rep. Clyburn is one of the most powerful figures in the House. He’s also one of Farrakhan’s allies in the House who had...

    Asra Nomani comes with the message not to fear Trump, but to fear Islamic extremism Nancy Pelosi tried to offset the storm of criticism against new Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s succession of anti-Semitic remarks by claiming “I don’t think Ilhan Omar is Anti-Semitic. She has a different experience in her use of words, and she doesn’t understand that some of them are fraught with meaning she doesn’t realize.” Pelosi showed her ignorance of the cultural and ethnic background that allowed Somali-born Omar to say what she said, and mean what she said. But Pelosi did stumble on the kernel of...

    Democratic representative Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) has gotten behind a push from anti-Israel faculty members at a small private California university to end its study abroad partnership with an Israeli university. The move by faculty members at Pitzer College aims to suspend its study abroad program to University of Haifa in Israel until their demands are met by the Israeli government. Leading the charge is Professor Daniel Segal, an anthropology and history professor, who announced through his Twitter account that Tlaib was his movement's newest backer.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be a featured speaker at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network convention next month, joining a large number of Democratic presidential contenders. Sharpton said Wednesday he was impressed with the first-year congresswoman, who shocked the political world last year by defeating veteran Rep. Joe Crowley. “I met her in Washington. She seems to be very smart and committed to the progressive agenda,” Sharpton said. The convention will be held at the Sheraton Times Square from April 3-6. Ocasio-Cortez is scheduled to speak April 5 — right before Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Other speakers include Democratic star Stacey...

    Anti-Semitic graffiti was scrawled on a sign featuring Ruth Bader Ginsburg at a subway station in Brooklyn earlier this week. The words “Die Jew Bitch” and a swastika were first spotted scribbled in black marker over the face of RBG on Tuesday on an ad pushing a new book about the Supreme Court justice at the Nassau Avenue subway stop on the G line. The vandalism was reported to the NYPD on Wednesday morning via social media. Responding on Twitter, NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea called the incident “abhorrent.” “As always, NYC has no place for hate,” Shea said.

    A top staffer to Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign apologized Tuesday for invoking “a dual allegiance” of Jewish Americans while defending Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. Belén Sisa, Sanders’ national deputy press secretary, was discussing the term seen as anti-Semitic in a Facebook thread over the weekend -- and argued that questioning it was legitimate, Politico reported. “This is a serious question: do you not think that the American government and American Jewish community has a dual allegiance to the state of Israel? I’m asking not to rule out the history of this issue, but in the context in which this was...

    D.C. is still reeling from last week’s debacle involving Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has made a series of statements many have criticized as anti-Semitic. In 2012, she tweeted, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” In February, Omar had tweeted that support for Israel was “all about the Benjamins baby,” prompting charges she was raising anti-Semitic tropes involving Jews and sinister financial machinations. Two weeks ago, she raised the issue of dual loyalty, and old anti-Semitic canard, before a D.C. crowd: “Nobody ever gets to have the broader...

    Prior to the 2018 midterm elections, a movement among blacks to “exit” the Democratic Party — nicknamed “Blexit” — began as more and more began to realize that the Donkey Party had not done anything for them except foment misery and poverty while perpetuating dependence on big government. “Blexit is a Renaissance,” movement champion Candace Owens said in an interview with Fox News in late October. “Blexit is the black exit from the Democratic Party. It’s the black exit from permanent victimhood, the black exit from the false idea that we are somehow separate from the rest of America.” The...

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich, defended her colleague Rep. Ilhan Omar from backlash within their own party regarding the Minnesota representative's controversial remarks deemed by some to be anti-Semitic. Omar suggested on Twitter that pro-Israel politicians are bought by groups like AIPAC and that those who support Israel have an "allegiance to a foreign country." Her remarks sparked much condemnation, including several of her Democratic colleagues. In a preview clip of an interview on Showtime’s "The Circus," Tlaib suggested that "Islamophobia" within their party could be behind the swift condemnation for the comments. "You know, I'm trying to figure it out....

    U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just got a humbling lesson in the power of anti-Semitism: It can’t be bribed away with a plum subcommittee appointment or threatened out with a primary challenge. Watching the utter disaster that unfolded when congressional leaders suggested making a simple, full-throated condemnation of anti-Semitism, I tried to think of something less surprising. I couldn’t. This began bad for the Jews; it ended bad for the Jews; and in the middle was a whole heaping pile of bad for the Jews. Last week, after freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., had made the latest in a series...

    Sarah Sanders sparred with CNN’s Jim Acosta during the first White House press briefing in 42 days on Monday. The exchange was prompted after NBC’s Hallie Jackson initially asked Sanders if Trump truly believes that “Democrats hate Jews,” following Trump's declaration last week that Democrats are "anti-Israel" and "anti-Jewish." The White House press secretary declined to answer directly, noting that the president has laid out his position on the matter in the past. “Democrats have had a number of opportunities to condemn specific comments and have refused to do that,” Sanders said, referring to the ongoing controversy surrounding Rep. Ilhan...

    In a few weeks, Jews all over the world will sit down to a Passover seder. We will eat matzah—unleavened bread that was not baked with the blood of Christian children. The claim that matzah is baked with the blood of Christian innocents is, of course, a famous anti-Semitic libel; it’s a libel that’s anti-Semitic because, first and foremost, it’s false (and ugly). If it were true, it wouldn’t be anti-Semitic to say such a thing. Telling ugly lies about the Jewish people is anti-Semitic, and it’s anti-Semitic, first and foremost, because it’s a lie.

    Far-left NBC News covered up its own findings about the effect Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) antisemitic remarks are having in her own home district. Desperate to craft a puff-piece to protect Omar and the Democrat Party, NBC published the following headline Sunday night: “Far from Washington, Rep. Omar’s constituents see the Israel controversy in a different light.” The story opens with this Pablum: “Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comments about Israel have consumed Washington. But here in Minnesota’s diverse 5th Congressional District, a pillar of progressivism that handed Omar a decisive victory in November’s midterm elections, there has been far less outrage.”
  • Anti-Semitism and 'Islamophobia: No Moral Equivalence

    The disgust that many conservatives feel following Thursday’s House of Representatives resolution condemning “hate” is justified. The resolution, retrofitted to the goals of “Third World first, America last” Democratic Party radicals, was a stern rebuke to critics of Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., the Somalia-born Muslim whose derogatory comments about Jews triggered the action. Since anti-Semitism and Islamophobia each constitute “hate,” the argument goes, they are equally bad. Both therefore must be condemned without regard as to whether one does more harm than another. Many naïve, well-meaning people across the political spectrum believe this moral equivalence claptrap. For them, opposing “hate”...

    MINNEAPOLIS — Rep. Ilhan Omar's comments about Israel have consumed Washington. But here in Minnesota’s diverse 5th Congressional District, a pillar of progressivism that handed Omar a decisive victory in November's midterm elections, there has been far less outrage. In interviews here, including with residents who are Jewish and Muslim, few of Omar's constituents voiced any anger at the lawmaker, even if they found the remarks troubling. One Jewish leader said she would be open to a good-faith foreign policy debate. To the director of the Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center, a large mosque 10 miles south of this city, the...
  • Cruz to Introduce Resolution Condemning Antisemitism

    the algemeiner ^ | March 10, 2019 | by – US Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has reportedly been spearheading a resolution explicitly condemning antisemitism that he plans to introduce this week. Jewish Insider reported the development on Friday, citing “a source familiar with the plan” who said it is “just a condemnation of antisemitism. There’s nothing extraneous. The entire thing clocks in at just over 100 words.” It comes one day after the US House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a resolution condemning antisemitism and other forms of bigotry. The House legislation was in response to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who on Sunday defended her recent remarks accusing her...
