    The final round of marches celebrating Pride 2017 occurred this weekend in cities around the world. In Chicago, the Dyke March, which is billed as a more inclusive event, was held Saturday, but, as people who don't agree with a laundry list of policy positions decided on by the organizers are increasingly finding out, the marches are anything but. Laurel Grauer said she'd "lost count of the number of people who harassed" her, and told Windy City Times: "It was a flag from my congregation which celebrates my queer, Jewish identity which I have done for over a decade marching...

    Jewish people celebrating LGBT Pride in Chicago were told not to display Star of David flags because other people found them “offensive.” The Jewish Star of David flag was banned from the city’s annual Dyke March celebrations, and several people carrying the flag were removed form the march because their presence “made people feel unsafe,” LGBT paper Windy City Times reported. The Dyke March is described by organizers as being a “more inclusive, more social justice-oriented” march than the city’s main Pride parade. One marcher, Laurel Grauer, said she was harassed by other Dyke March attendees before being told she...

    The unimpeded shoutdown of Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat at San Francisco State University last year – while he was giving a talk about technology – was the final straw for Jewish students at the California State University campus. They filed a civil rights lawsuit against the university, CSU board of trustees and officials including President Les Wong Monday for facilitating and encouraging the anti-Semitic harassment they regularly face as Jewish people on campus.

    Almost 50 per cent of newly-arrived young Austrian Muslim migrants hold anti-Semitic views, a new study published by the University of Teacher Education in Vienna reveals. Der Standard newspaper reports that a recent poll asked Austrian Muslim students if they felt that “Jews have too much influence in Austria.” Almost 48 per cent answered in the affirmative. Those surveyed had migrant backgrounds representing a diverse set of Muslim-majority countries such as Syria as well as Muslim-minority countries including Bosnia, Albania, and Bulgaria.

    Students and Jewish community members filed a lawsuit Monday against San Francisco State University and Cal State’s board of trustees, alleging that the San Francisco campus of the country’s largest public university system has long cultivated a hostile environment in which Jewish students are “often afraid to wear Stars of David or yarmulkes on campus, and regularly text their friends to describe potential safety issues.”

    As I document in my book, “Still the Best Hope: Why the World Needs American Values to Triumph,” which is an explanation of Americanism, leftism, and Islamism, hysteria is a major tactic of the left. If you think about it, there is never an extended period of time—one year, let’s say—during which society is not engulfed by a hysteria induced by the left. The mother of them all is global warming, or “climate change,” as the left has come to call it (because the warming was not quite enough to induce widespread panic). Hysterics like billionaires Al Gore and Tom...
  • Caught on tape: Suspects involved in Springs synagogue hate crime [Colorado Springs]

    Colorado Springs Police are calling an act of anti semitic vandalism at a Springs synagogue a hate crime. The crime occurred around 1:30 A.M. Saturday morning at the Chabad-Lubavich Center in Colorado Springs. “Obviously you can imagine it’s a very appalling thing. In this day and age, this definitely cannot be taken lightly,” said Rabbi Moshe Liberow, who founded Chabad-Lubavich Center in 2001. Liberow was one of the first to notice two stickers on the Synagogue’s front door Saturday morning which read “Fight terror, Nuke Israel.” …

    Police in Manchester, in northeastern England, say that arson attacks on two kosher restaurants are “anti-Semitic hate crimes.” The attacks, which police say they believe are linked, took place in the north Manchester neighborhood of Prestwich within five days of each other, the latest on Tuesday, the London-based Jewish Chronicle reported. On Friday night, two people threw a firebomb at the Taam restaurant in an attack caught on surveillance camera. The firebomb failed to ignite, leading one of the attackers to throw a stone through the establishment’s front window. Early on Tuesday morning, unknown attackers forced open a window at...
  • Which Ice Cream Brand Is Big, Gay — And Defiantly Kosher?

    Kosher ice cream lovers have a lot to celebrate this Pride month, specifically in the form of a pint of Big Gay Ice Cream. That’s because when the ice cream truck-turned-brick-and-mortar shop decided to package its popular soft serve to be sold nationally, it sought and received kosher certification. The pints of soft-serve deliciousness, which debuted in March and are sold in grocery stores and online, are officially under the auspices of the kashrut division of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America. Or, as it is colloquially known, the OU. While it’s understandable that an up-and-coming brand would...

    Rep. Mark Pocan (D., Wis.) has been identified as the anonymous member of Congress who reserved official Capitol Hill space for an anti-Israel forum that is being organized by several organizations that support boycotts of the Jewish state, according to congressional sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon. News of the June 8 anti-Israel event, which was first disclosed earlier this week by the Free Beacon, sparked outrage on Capitol Hill and initiated a search to identify the anonymous member of Congress sponsoring the event. The event, which sources confirmed to the Free Beacon is being sponsored by Pocan,...

And it looks like the establishment media are just getting started. {..snip..}

    A Muslim-American activist whose role as a commencement speaker had come under protest from critics opposing her stance on Israel was given a standing ovation by graduating students Thursday after she told them they must commit to demanding change. “We in this room together must commit to never being bystanders to poverty, lack of jobs and health care,” Linda Sarsour told graduates of the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy. Critics of Sarsour who don’t like her views on Israel had spoken out against her being the keynote, but the school administration stood...

    The EU foreign policy chief says Europe does “not see eye to eye” with the Trump administration on major issues such as trade, climate change and funding of U.N. agencies, but can “easily” work with the U.S. on Syria and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Federica Mogherini spoke Saturday during a regional gathering of the World Economic Forum. Mogherini warned that threatened U.S. cuts in funding U.N. agencies “would create a major security issue worldwide, including in Europe.” …

    A prophesy appearing to call for the murder of Jews repeated during a sermon at a Copenhagen mosque has caused outrage in Denmark after it was released online. Mundhir Abdallah was reported to police after being filmed repeating in Arabic an anti-Semitic hadith- a teaching of Muhammad. The verse says “Judgment Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them.” He declares a “caliphate” is coming – that is a state governed in accordance with Islamic Sharia law. It will be part of a jihad to unite the Muslim community and liberate the al-Aqsa mosque in...

    The Jewish Community in Denmark will contact police about an imam at a mosque in Copenhagen’s Nřrrebro neighborhood who encouraged attacks on Jews during a Friday service, reports newspaper Kristeligt Dagblad. The complaint will be based on a video recording of a Friday service at the Masjid al-Faruq mosque in Nřrrebro on March 31st this year. The recording was translated from Arabic to English by American institute MEMRI. According to the translation, imam Mundhir Abdallah quotes a hadith — a report of a speech by the Prophet Mohammed used in Islamic scripture — which incites violence against Jews. “‘Judgment Day...

    Ahead of German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier’s visit to Israel on Saturday, a German government study revealed that nearly 33 million Germans, 40% of the population of 82 million, are infected with contemporary antisemitism — hatred of the Jewish state. The report, which was published on April 24, details in a section titled “Agreement to Israel-related antisemitism” that 40% of Germans who were polled showed approval for the following statement: “Based on Israel’s policies, I can understand people having something against the Jews.” The federal government’s antisemitism report found that the proportion of Germans who agreed with the antisemitic statement increased...

    Since his inauguration, elements within the leftist mainstream media have tried to advance the mendacious and pernicious narrative that Trump and his so-called populist policies are the driving force behind xenophobic hate crimes. Despite their best efforts to derail, defame and tarnish the administration, the scheme nosedived badly. First, they focused their attention on the “surge” of “Islamophobic hate crimes.” But many of these so-called hate crimes, which involved young, hijab-wearing “victims,” turned out to be nothing more than victim-orchestrated hoaxes that expended valuable police time. Retractions and corrections, to the extent that they were actually issued, were generally buried...

    So, Donald Trump delivers a speech in honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day, and the anti-Semites are up in arms. He is not the man they thought he was. In reality, he never was that man, which was more a projection of their own ideology than a right assessment of his. As Sam Kestenbaum reported on the Jewish Forward, “Trump Gives A Holocaust Speech — And The ‘Alt Right’ Screams ‘Betrayal’.” How, exactly, did Trump betray the “alt-right”?In his speech, he said, “The State of Israel is an eternal monument to the undying strength of the Jewish people.
