    How can Israel have peace if it’s unwilling to delineate a border, end the occupation?’ asks White House Mideast chief, Phillip Gordon, in a blistering Tel Aviv speech. Israel’s ongoing occupation of the West Bank is wrong and leads to regional instability and dehumanization of Palestinians, a top American government official said Tuesday in Tel Aviv, hinting that the current Israeli government is not committed to peace. In an unusually harsh major foreign policy address, Philip Gordon, a special assistant to US President Barack Obama and the White House coordinator for the Middle East, appealed to Israeli and Palestinian leaders...

    Macklemore may be a darling of gay rights activists and feel-good lefty types, but he's in potential hot water after the popular rapper played a show in a questionable costume. At a secret show in Seattle, Macklemore hit the stage appearing dressed to look like a stereotypical Jewish man. Last Friday, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were the surprise performers in honor of a new exhibit at Seattle's EMP Museum. Although it's difficult to determine who exactly Macklemore is supposed to be in his getup, it's clear fans on social media are just as confused. But anyone expecting a rousing statement...

    Former President Jimmy Carter yesterday said he is supportive of letting a known member of a terrorist group, Hamid Aboutalebi, into the United States as Iran’s newest ambassador to the United Nations. Aboutalebi was a member of the Muslim student group who held 52 Americans hostage at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran for more than a year beginning in 1979 during Carter’s presidency. When asked in an interview if the United States should block Aboutalebi’s entrance to U.N. headquarters in New York, Carter told radio station WTOP: “You know, those were college students at that time, and I think that...

    This isn’t really new, but some of the most interesting material comes from Rafael Medoff’s demonstration of how the material was buried and misreported by historians sympathetic to liberal presidents. When FDR endorsed quotas for Jews in the US and even North Africa, liberal historians claimed that he was being “practical” or actually trying to help Jews. And then there’s the story of the efforts to bury and lie about FDR’s exchange with Stalin about the Jews.

In a survey held across 11 different nationalities with large Muslim populations, Muslim respondents were asked about their views on “Islamic extremism.” The results showed uniform opposition to such ideologies, as well as widespread rejection of suicide bombings—in all but one set of respondents. … A sizable majority (62%) of respondents from the “Palestinian Territories” (referring to Palestinian Authority-controlled Judea and...

A secret budget request obtained by The Washington Post from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden lumps Israel alongside U.S. foes Iran and Cuba as “key targets” for U.S. counterintelligence efforts. The document suggests Israel does not believe U.S. assurances that its interests are aligned with Israel's on crucial issues such as Iran and peace talks with the Palestinians. “To further safeguard our classified networks, we continue to strengthen insider threat detection capabilities across the Community,” reads the FY 2013 congressional budget...

    Telepathy could have been used to compel four young Turkish engineers to kill themselves, it's been suggested. That's one explanation of the deaths of four workers at the defence giant Aselsan contained in a report presented to the PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan, according to reports. All four deaths, within the space of 14 months during 2006 and 2007, were initially recorded as suicides. The men had been undergoing psychological treatment before they died but doubts persisted from their sceptical families, reports newspaper Today's Zaman. And last year the Inspection Board of the Prime Ministry launched a fresh probe.

    The Democratic Party is facing an awkward problem Thursday because white supremacist David Duke has endorsed a leading candidate in the Democratic Party’s primary race for a New York House seat. Duke says he’s endorsing Charles Barron, the leading candidate for the 10th district primary on June 26, because of their shared emnity toward “zionists.” Barron is an African-American city politician who has been slammed as an anti-white racist and as a Jew-hater. However, he’s already got the endorsement of the retiring Democratic congressman, Rep. Edolphus Towns. If Barron wins the June 26 primary, he’s a shoo-in for election in...

    The election has been marred with ugly undertones of anti-Semitism: one candidate accuses the other of being more loyal to Israel than to his own land, and anchors his candidacy in ethnic and religious identity politics. Observers fear that by making his anti-Israel stance the lynchpin of his campaign, the candidate is setting a precedent that could have severe negative consequences in the near future. All this sounds as if it could be taking place in Egypt, where Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi has signaled that he wants to review, if not discard outright, that nation’s peace treaty with Israel,...

In addressing whites, Farrakhan issued his typically-offensive rhetoric. “They know you, but you don’t know them or yourself, so you’re always at a disadvantage when you sit down with white people to negotiate,”...

"This comic is modern anti-Semitism at its best. It is one story to fight against circumcision, and another to portray Jews in a false anti-Semitic stereotype. The Jewish depictions look like they came right out of Nazi Germany propaganda in the 1930s and 1940s," wrote Hailey Dilman in a commentary at Digital Journal.

    For a while now, Torontonians have been wondering how, exactly, a “gay-rights” group like “Queers Against Israeli Apartheid” (QuAIA) could purport to demonize Israel — the only country in the entire Middle East where gay rights are honoured in the same way they are honoured in Canada. Now we know the answer: QuAIA doesn’t just hate Israel. It hates Canada, too!On Canada Day, July 1, here are the instructions that QuAIA was giving to supporters who wanted to help the group participate in Sunday’s Gay Pride parade: “Thursday, July 1, 2010 at Noon: Instead of celebrating this colonial country (which...

    Anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan blamed Jews for financial ruin of blacks. Farrakhan claims Jews for centuries have worked to financially undermine Black people. Disgusting.

    WASHINGTON, June 7, 2010 – Helen Thomas announced Monday that she is retiring, effective immediately. Her decision came after her controversial comments about Israel and the Palestinians were captured on videotape and widely disseminated on the Internet. Thomas later issued a statement: ``I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.’’ Thomas will mark her 90th birthday on Aug. 4.

    In an interview, Helen Thomas, a White House Press Correspondent, gives her comment on Israel by cackling, “Tell them to get the he** out of Palestine!” She continues the interview with a blatant display of jaw-dropping anti-Semitism and racism. Someone should give Witch Thomas a lesson on history and remind her that Jews were in Israel long before the holocaust. Then send her home on her broomstick. http://www.libertyjuice.com/2010/06/04/helen-thomas-to-the-jews-get-the-he-out/

    On Memorial Day, May 31, a lone Jewish teenaged boy encountered a mob of protesters in the streets of Los Angeles at the Israeli consulate. Waving Palestinian flags and shouting chants denouncing Israel for interdicting a flotilla of ships supposedly carrying humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, members of the mob began shouting "Allahu Akbar" - Allah is the Greatest - in Arabic and menaced the boy who defiantly raised an Israeli flag in silent witness.

    My mother is from Bethlehem and my father is from Jerusalem. Those two important cities don’t seem to mean much to American Christians. Palestinians living under the Israeli occupation in Bethlehem and in East Jerusalem are oppressed by the Israeli government and supported by members of the U.S. Congress. This week the oppression reaches its peak as Christians of Palestinian ancestry are oppressed and denied entrance into Jerusalem to pray at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the spot where Jesus was crucified. Israel’s right wing government insists in its propaganda that Jerusalem, under their rule, is an “Open City”...

    "There's no doubt that in general the United States government has been much more attuned to the sensitivities of the Israelis and has yielded excessively to the circumstances in the Holy Land as Israel has confiscated several lands within Palestine," Carter said at the opening of a two-day conference on US-Arab relations.
