  • With Friends Like Angela Merkel, Does Israel Need Enemies?

    Last Saturday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union Party voted down a motion to freeze funding for the Palestinian Authority until it stops its “pay to slay” imbursements to terrorists and their families. The motion stated that “with the payments, the PA knowingly and willingly supports terror against Israel and makes this a worthy financial business.” But Merkel’s party wasn’t moved. One day later, a Palestinian terror attack seriously wounded a pregnant woman. The baby, who was delivered in an emergency procedure, held out for a few days and died on Wednesday. In October during a visit to...

    Anti-semitism has become “disturbingly normalized” in Europe, as almost 40 percent of the European Jewish community is considering leaving their home countries because they no longer feel safe, according to a survey by the EU’s Fundamental Rights Agency published on Monday (10 December). Nearly 90 percent of respondents said that anti-semitism has been on the rise since 2013. Some 70 years after six million Jews were murdered in Europe, Jews on the continent once again refrain from wearing their kippa, the religious cap, and hide their mezuzas, usually hung on doorposts, to protect themselves. The EU’s Vienna-based agency surveyed almost...

    An Ohio woman, one of two people accused on Monday of planning mass murders, was in contact with the racist gunman who shot up a South Carolina church and killed nine people in 2015, authorities said. Elizabeth Lecron, 23, of Toledo, was one of two people arrested in domestic terrorism-related cases, the FBI announced. Lecron was arrested with 21-year-old Damon Joseph, of Holland... The FBI said investigators found an AK-47, shotgun, handguns, ammunition and hand-caps, which are used to make pipe bombs, in her apartment. Authorities said she planned to attack a bar in Toledo and meet up with other...

    The Pittsburgh Department of Public Safety and the Pittsburgh police are investigating the distribution of anti-Semitic pamphlets in the city’s neighborhoods, The Hill reported on Sunday. “The Pittsburgh Department of Public Safety and the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police are aware of and are investigating the dissemination of anti-Semitic pamphlets in Pittsburgh neighborhoods, including Squirrel Hill,” the department said on Twitter. “Such hate-filled material will not be tolerated in Pittsburgh — not by residents, city officials nor Law enforcement,” the statement added. “The Department of Public Safety assures the community that we are taking this matter very seriously and will follow...

    New York University student senators passed a resolution Thursday in support of the university divesting from three companies associated with the Israeli government and instituting a “socially responsible” investment policy. Israeli-affiliated companies named in the resolution included Caterpillar, General Electric, and Lockheed Martin. Only NYU students were allowed to attend the senate meeting, each senator's vote remained anonymous, and those who wished to address the room were limited to two minutes when speaking. The meeting, which was expected to last for about two hours, was ultimately extended until it spanned nearly three-and-a-half hours.
  • Turkey: A “Jewish Terrorist Organization” Behind the Attempted Coup?

    Anti-Semitism is widespread in Turkey and intensely motivated by Islamic scriptures. Some Turkish authorities and opinion-shapers have chosen the “easy” way: Use the “Jew card” to demonize Gülen and his supporters. Many pro-government news websites and discussion forums, including pro-government newspapers, are filled with columns that claim Gülen is actually Jewish.A columnist with the pro-government newspaper Sabah, Ersin Ramoğlu, for example, wrote a column entitled “Fethullah Gülen: a Karaite Jew,” in which he “described” how “Jewish Fethullah Gülen has destroyed Turkey, such as by poisoning thousands of young people in his schools.” Then he explained why Gülen engages in all...

    Brett Favre apologized over the weekend after it was revealed that he was tricked into recording an anti-Semitic video for an organization claiming to represent veterans. The “Handsome Truth” and the “Goyim Defense League”, known anti-Semitic groups, paid Favre $500 to read a script that included coded language and dog whistle messaging, prompting Favre to speak out when it became clear he was tricked. The groups used “Cameo”, an app that allows users to pay celebrities to record short video messages. Favre was paid to read the message which was intentionally written not to raise Favre’s suspicions but still appeal...

    CNN’s decision to drop Marc Lamont Hill has met with resistance on the left, with some prominent progressives calling for the network to rehire him and challenging the widely held view that his comments before a United Nations panel were anti-Semitic. Harvard professor Cornel West, “Avengers” star Mark Ruffalo, Democratic Rep.-elect Rashida Tlaib, and a host of journalists were among those who rushed to Mr. Hill’s defense after CNN released the liberal commentator last week following an uproar over his speech. Mr. West said he was in “deep solidarity” with Mr. Hill, while Mr. Ruffalo said that “[c]riticizing Israel is...

    W hy is it so difficult, if not impossible, to have a candid debate about the grim Israeli-Palestinian catastrophe that prevails in our midst? What stands in the way of our capacity to grasp the undeniable need for justice for Palestinians and the understandable fear of annihilation of the Jews in Israel? Is the only option a desperate Palestinian counter-violent struggle against the structural and military violence of the occupying Israeli state? The recent firing of Marc Lamont Hill by CNN for calling for a free Palestine once again opens up this Pandora’s box – with little, if any, hope...

    United Nations "International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People" Beginning in 1977, the United Nations has observed the “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People” every year on November 29th. This is the date in 1947 when the UN General Assembly approved its partition resolution envisaging the establishment of two states – an independent state of Palestine and an independent Jewish state of Israel. The Palestinians and their surrounding Arab neighbors rejected the original two-state solution with their usual response - violence. The creators of the Jewish state were willing to accept the compromise. Israel subsequently offered the...

    For Nisi Jacobs, the final straw was when Women’s March co-leader Tamika Mallory received a shoutout in February from Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan at his Saviours’ Day speech. A week later, Ms. Jacobs helped start feminist advocacy group WoMen For All as charges of bigotry and anti-Semitism roiled the leadership team of Ms. Mallory, Bob Bland, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour. “We formed … in March 2018 very much in response to the homophobia, transphobia, anti-Semitism and misogyny of Farrakhan’s preaching that was being normalized by Women’s March leaders,” Ms. Jacobs said. Even as the Women’s March celebrates...

    CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill, in a Wednesday speech to the United Nations, called for violent resistance against Israel and advocated expanding Palestine “from the river to the sea,” a phrase used by those who believe that Israel should be eliminated. Hill, who has a long history of anti-Semitism, made the remarks at a U.N. event commemorating the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. He said the international community should boycott Israel and allow Palestinians more space to engage in violence against the Jewish state, arguing that violence was also employed to end “American apartheid.” "Tactics otherwise divergent...

    Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) responded to former Trump aide Sebastian Gorka after he blasted her for making a comparison between the migrant caravan and Jews fleeing Nazi Germany. “You were forced out of the Trump Admin for saying white supremacists were 'not the problem' days before Neo-Nazis in Charlottesville killed 3 people,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted at Gorka. “Pretty sure we’re on the right side of history if you’re my opposition.” “This is not about atrocity. It’s about how we get there,” she added.

    Security video from Friday night shows the driver making a hard U-turn. A second security video shows the driver reversing and trying to hit them again. A home security camera caught the same car plowing through a stop sign just moments later. A witness snapped a photo of a Koran on his dashboard, and although no one says the driver — Mohammed Mohammed — verbalized his own religion, folks in this community say targeting someone else for their religion is always a hate crime. “I think this is just a much more violent, scary world than we all though it...

    As I suspected, this Honduran news director was a supporter of the would-be usuper Mel Zelaya. Who is buddies with Chavez. Who is buddies with Iran's Ahmadinejad. Who wants Israel wiped off the map. From Ynet News: "The US Ambassador in Honduras has condemned anti-Semitic remarks by a local radio news director who has been an outspoken opponent of the coup that ousted President Manuel Zelaya." [NOTE, it was not a coup!] "Ambassador Hugo Llorens sent a letter to Radio Globo owner Alejandro Villatoro expressing "astonishment and incomprehension" over the September 25 remarks by station director David Romero."

    Four representatives of the UN Human Rights Council are demanding clarifications from the Israeli government regarding the Nationality Law and the damage which, they claim, it is causing to the Arab minority in Israel. The representatives are demanding that the clarifications be received within 60 days, and have threatened to initiate a condemnation of Israel that will be put to a vote in the Human Rights Council. The Nationality Law, which was approved by the Knesset several months ago, states that Israel is the Jewish people’s nation state and establishes as law Israel’s flag, symbols, the Hebrew language, and various...

    Jewish leaders are calling for new editions of the Bible and Koran to carry warning messages which highlight anti-Semitic passages in the holy texts. The recommendations have been made in a new document called ‘An End to Antisemitism! A Catalogue of Policies to Combat Antisemitism’. It was produced following an international conference organised by the European Jewish Congress, at which academics gathered to discuss how prejudice and discrimination can be tackled. Among the policies mentioned in the document was the idea of warning messages in holy texts, a topic discussed in a chapter entitled 'recommendations regarding Religious Groups and Institutions'....

    Say you're Linda Sarsour—a big BDS fan and fierce critic of Israel. Or you're Tamika Mallory—a big Farrakhan fan who has refused to renounce him after he recently compared Jews to "termites." We've got good news for you. You've got a friend at CNN: Alisyn Camerota. On New Day this morning, Camerota interviewed Teresa Shook, founder of the Women's March. Shook has called for Sarsour, Mallory and other March co-chairs to step down over their anti-Semitism and homophobia. | [snip] Camerota read (and put on screen) some eyewash that Sarsour and company put out for the press: "We are imperfect....

    In the last decade, every single House Democrat sent to prison for financial crimes was a Congressional Black Caucus member. In the last twenty years, it’s been over 80%. After the midterms, the CBC has grown past a record 50 members. But that doesn’t mean it’s getting better. Power makes it worse... The Congressional Black Caucus has achieved a record number of seats so it’s a power player in the new Dem House majority. And CBC leaders are demanding a status in the Democrat leadership commensurate with their growing numbers. The Caucus forms somewhat less than a quarter of the...
