  • RNC Closes Live YouTube Chat After Trump-Loving Alt-Right Refuses To Stop Jew-Bashing

    The Republican National Convention YouTube live chat was closed down Monday due to an influx of Jew-bashing comments from Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s alt-right supporters. The convention can still be viewed live, but live comments are disabled: Former Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle spoke to delegates about the importance of strengthening bonds between our nation and our allies, and condemned the Democratic Party for promoting hostility toward Israel. “Today our country is more divided than ever and our national security is threatened,” Lingle said. “The Democrats refuse to even call sources of so much of this violence by its name...

    A study from the Free University Berlin (FU) suggests that anti-Semitic attitudes among the German far left are more widespread than is generally believed. Thirty-four percent of those categorized by the research group as “extreme left” agreed with the statement that Jews had “too much influence” in Germany. Even among the radical left — which differs from the “extreme left” in the definitions used by the study in that extreme left attitudes are incompatible with democracy and the German constitution — the figure of those agreeing with the statement was worryingly high, at 16 percent.

    Israel’s parliament passed a controversial law Monday that increases the regulation of many Israeli human rights organizations. The law approved by a vote of 57 to 48 targets groups that receive more than half their funding from foreign governments or political organizations. In practice, the law will affect liberal groups almost exclusively because hawkish groups in Israel largely rely on donations from wealthy individuals, which are exempt. The law requires organizations to state that they rely on foreign funding in all communication with public officials and on TV, newspapers, billboards and online. Representatives of these groups must also declare they...

    As demonstrators in the United States protest against recent incident in which police officers killed African American men, Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) has found a way to blame Israel. New York University's chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine shared a post on its Facebook page claiming that "the same forces behind the genocide of black people in America are behind the genocide of Palestinians." Aside from the extreme hyperbole in describing growth from 1.3 million to 12.3 million over the past 70 years as "genocide," the accusations bring to mind anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about Jews controlling the...

    My father-in-law is not an anti-Semite. It’s that simple, really. Donald Trump is not anti-Semitic and he’s not a racist. Despite the best efforts of his political opponents and a large swath of the media to hold Donald Trump accountable for the utterances of even the most fringe of his supporters—a standard to which no other candidate is ever held—the worst that his detractors can fairly say about him is that he has been careless in retweeting imagery that can be interpreted as offensive. I read the Dana Schwartz piece that appeared on Observer.com. As always, there are thoughtful points...

    The State Department on Tuesday issued a scathing condemnation of Israel’s plans to build new housing units in Maale Adumim and in Jerusalem. “If it’s true, this report would be the latest step in what seems to be a systematic process of land seizures, settlement expansions, and legalizations of outposts that is fundamentally undermining the prospects for a two-state solution,” said State Department spokesman John Kirby of the plans, which were announced Sunday following last week’s terrorist attacks against Israelis in Judea and Samaria. “We oppose steps like these, which we believe are counterproductive to the cause of peace.

    Getting through the line at the TSA can be a long and uncomfortable process. For one Chattanooga teen and her mother, the process turned into a scary nightmare. 19-year-old Hannah Cohen was returning home from St. Jude's Hospital with her mother for treatment of her brain tumor (a trip they had made for 17 years), when Hannah somehow set off the metal detector at the security checkpoint. TSA wanted to do a further scan on Hannah, but she was reluctant. Hannah's mother, Shirley Cohen, tried to inform the agents that her daughter was disabled. She is partially deaf and blind...

    Hannah Cohen, a young disabled woman whose mother describes as “partially deaf, blind in one eye, paralyzed and easily confused,” was beaten by Transportation Security Agents (TSA) after her flight home. The young woman was then led from the Memphis International Airport, beaten, bloodied, bruised, and in handcuffs — and then booked into jail. Cohen was returning home to Chattanooga after receiving treatment for her brain tumor at St. Jude’s Hospital. In fact, Hannah Cohen was returning home after receiving her final treatment for the brain tumor, and this trip back from St. Jude’s just marked one of many, as...

    Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas attempted to walk back controversial statements made during a recent address to the European Union parliament in Brussels, claiming on Saturday that he opposed "any attack on any religion", after having accused Israel of “poisoning Palestinian wells”. "Palestine is the cradle of the three monotheistic faiths. We stand strongly against any attack on any religion," Abbas said in a statement. The tacit acknowledgement of Judaism's roots in the Land of Israel, comes in stark contrast to Palestinian Authority propaganda which has for decades attempted to diminish the Jewish people's ancient history in Israel.

    The State Department is using American taxpayer dollars to finance Palestinian Arabs celebrating violent attacks on Israelis and advocating a boycott of Israel and the division of its capital city. Where’s the outrage? Not in the New York Times, which treats the topic as subject for a light-toned feature article about what it describes as a Palestinian “reality television show.” The show features contestants who “run” for the job of Palestinian president. The Times article reports that “the three finalists all had similar platforms: Boycott Israel. Designate East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine.” Later, the Times reports, almost in...

    Anti-Semitic incidents in New England are up more than 100% this year, according to numbers released this week by the Anti-Defamation League. In 2015, an average of five such incidents occurred each month, while so far this year, there have been over 10 each month. The increase is “fueled by vandalism, harassment, and other acts at schools and colleges,” reports the Boston Globe. “Clearly, people are acting out on some long-held stereotypes and hatred toward Jews,” said Robert Trestan, director of the New England Regional Office of the ADL, “and it’s designed to send a message of intimidation.

Taking place in the same hall where 40 years ago 72 nations voted to equate Zionism with racism, Israel’s Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon called the conference an “historic” event. Separately, Palestinian Ambassador Riyad Mansour dismissed the conference as “no big deal.” The boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (BDS) seeks to ostracize Israel...

Some of these reversals represent mere moral victories but others have far reaching consequences that may well spell doom for BDS’s future operations and ability to function.  In May, the Strasbourg-based...

Livingstone has already been suspended from the Labour Party, where he was until recently a senior policymaker, after claiming in an interview that Adolf Hitler was a Zionist, and appearing to back some of the Nazi dictator’s earlier policies before he “went mad.” “Let’s remember when Hitler won his election in 1932, his policy then was that Jews should be moved to Israel. He was supporting Zionism before he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews,” Livingstone...

It is not yet clear what motivated the stabbing, which took place at southern Amsterdam’s Grand Cafe Rimon, though the culprit is believed to be mentally ill. The possibility that the attack was motivated by anti-Semitism created turmoil within the Amsterdam Jewish community. Authorities are now investigating the case.

The bill, co-sponsored by Progressive Conservative MPP Tim Hudak and Liberal MPP Mike Colle, would have prohibited the government from entering into contracts with businesses that support the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. It was defeated by a vote of 18-39, with largely Liberal and NDP MPPs voting against the measure, according to The Sun.

But the harrowing testimony of these now elderly men and women also offers an enduring postscript, as each survivor exhorts those who listen to never forget man’s inhumanity to man. For Jews like me, well, how can we forget? […] To remain in Europe is to transfer sovereignty from Westminster for Brussels....

Until, that is, I learned some history – including the history of the Jews. Which is, in short, that pretty much everywhere, they have turned...

The Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry Regarding the Problems of European Jewry and Palestine, consisting of six British and six American members, was a British idea. Under pressure from President Harry Truman to allow 100,000 Jewish survivors in Europe’s DP camps to emigrate to the British Mandate, Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin proposed the joint committee as a way to outflank the White House. Between January and March 1946, the Committee heard testimony in Washington, London, numerous sites in Europe,...

Much has been written about the nefarious motives behind the anti-Semitic Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement as well as its primary campus sponsor, Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). An exhaustive and authoritative account tracing the movement's history, its radical roots and maximalist goals was authored by Dan Diker for the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs and is a must read for anyone wishing to gain further insight into the inner workings of BDS. Of perhaps greater concern however, is the terror link between...

    slamic Jew-hatred - it's in the Quran. Is this surprising? No. And it's proof of the nefarious convergence of leftism and antisemitism. Labour is left. Interesting note: it was a blogger who discovered the hate-filled post. Bloggers are doing the work the media won't.

    One thing is certain: if the roles had been reversed, and a Jewish student had asked a Muslim politician why she was so “smelly,” that student would no longer be at Harvard, and would be subjected to international opprobrium, while stories on “Islamophobia” would be blanketing the airwaves and filling mainstream media publications. “Meet The Brilliant Harvard Student Who Called A Jewish Politician ‘Smelly,’” by Blake Neff, Daily Caller, April 21, 2016 (thanks to Pamela Geller): The name of the Harvard student who asked a visiting Israeli politician why she was “so smelly” has been revealed. The student is a...

    Last month, UNESCO’s director general Irina Bokova issued a statement congratulating Russian- backed Syrian forces for liberating the ancient city of Palmyra from Islamic State (ISIS). Bokova said Palmyra “carries the memory of the Syrian people, and the values of cultural diversity, tolerance and openness that have made this region a cradle of civilization.” Bokova added, “The deliberate destruction of heritage is a war crime, and UNESCO will do everything in its power to document the damage so that these crimes do not go unpunished. I wish to remind all parties present of the absolute necessity to preserve this unique...

    t seems a concerted effort is under way to conceal the identity of the Harvard law student who hurled anti-Semitic epithets at Israel's former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni during her recent address at the university. During the question and answer session at her speaking engagement, someone identified merely as "the president of a student organization," invoked an age-old anti-Semitic slur, asking Livni, "how is it that you are so smelly?” He then repeated the question: "A question about the odor of Ms. Tzipi Livni, she’s very smelly, and I was just wondering." CanaryMission.org notes that great lengths are being taken...

    Just when you think once-prestigious Harvard could fall further from grace, Harvard students hurled anti-Semitic epithets at Israel's former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni during her recent talk at the University. Last Thursday, Harvard Law School hosted a panel discussion with guest speakers Dennis Ross and former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni. During a question and answer session a president of a student organization mocked the Israeli leader, asking her, “How is it that you are so smelly?” When his question drew stunned silence, he clarified his "question." “A question about the odor of Ms. Tzipi Livni, she’s very smelly, and I...

    Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged “overwhelming frustration” with Israel’s government on Monday and said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s administration has led Israel in the wrong direction, in an unusually sharp rebuke of America’s closest ally in the Middle East. Biden, in a speech to the advocacy group J Street, offered a grim outlook for peace efforts, reflecting dim hopes for progress during the remainder of the Obama administration. Although he said both Israelis and Palestinians shared blame for undermining trust and shirking responsibility, he was emphatic in his critique of Netanyahu’s government, suggested his approach raised “profound questions” about how...

    There is a concerted effort among “Palestinians” and their supporters to erase all evidence of the historical connection of Jews to Israel. The UN, controlled by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, is a willing partner in these efforts. Besides being motivated by Islamic Jew-hatred, this endeavor is in line with the Islamic supremacist tendency to appropriate the holy places and sacred figures of other religions.“UNESCO Renames Western Wall ‘Al-Buraq Plaza,’” by Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz, Breaking Israel News, April 17, 2016 (thanks to Janice): On Friday, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) Executive Board in Paris adopted a...

    PJ Media ^ | 13 Apr, 2016 | Why Bernie Sanders Says Terrible Things about Israel
    It's been over a week since Bernie Sanders -- in an interview with the New York Daily News -- made arguably the most defamatory factual error of campaign 2016 by drastically inflating Gazan casualties in the 2014 Hamas-Israel war with a figure of "over 10,000 innocent people" allegedly killed by Israel. That number dwarfed those reported by the UN and even (amazingly) Hamas itself. Here's the transcript: Sanders: Look, why don't I support a million things in the world? I'm just telling you that I happen to believe...anybody help me out here, because I don't remember the figures, but my...

    Targeting Jews in the Ivory Sewer A safe space for Jew-hatred. April 15, 2016 Kenneth Levin    Reports of anti-Semitic acts on American campuses suggest that the nation’s universities and colleges are likely today the chief institutional repository of anti-Semitism in the United States.   As one recent study notes: “A survey of U.S. Jewish college students by Trinity College and the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law revealed that 54% of surveyed students reported experiencing or witnessing instances of anti-Semitism on campus during the first six months of the 2013-2014 academic year. Another survey by...
