  • Islam, Islamophobia, Christophobia, and Jew hatred

    Here is a reality check to keep in mind when someone issues another condemnation of Islamophobia in the Western World. Surely, we have plenty of room for improvement, but we are pikers at the game of religious discrimination. In many Muslim countries, discrimination against Christians and Jews is not just practiced, it is codified into law. Thus, consider Egypt, which is one of the more secular and moderate countries in the Muslim World with a sizable religious minority of Coptic Christians. Egyptian law stipulates that a "Muslim man may marry a Christian woman but the opposite is forbidden; and if...

    Like the many political prisoners who made Siberia synonymous with exile, Katz was born elsewhere. In his case, it was Ukraine, where he lived in a small town until World War II. Then, in 1944, he was packed onto a train, sent to a concentration camp and separated from his family. He managed to hang on until the next year when, at the age of 15, he was liberated by American soldiers. Being just a boy, when the GIs—"angels" he called them—offered to take him to the United States, he thought only of finding his parents. So he turned down...

    Before the victory of feminism, there was a popular Israeli song in which the boy asks the girl: “When you say No, what do you mean?” This question has already been answered. Now I am more and more tempted to ask: “When you say Zionism, what do you mean?” Lately, associations for the defense of Zionism have been springing up like mushrooms after rain. Poisonous mushrooms. All kinds of American Jewish multimillionaires are financing “patriotic” Israeli groups in Israel, to fight the holy war for “Zionism”. The assault takes place along all the fronts. Jewish organizations aim at cleansing the...

    A murderous anti-Semitic theme appeared on Facebook Sunday, when a user named “Alex Cookson” launched an open invitation to an “event” called “Kill a Jew Day.” The page on the popular social networking Web site urged users to violence “anywhere you see a Jew” between July 4 and July 22. A large image of a swastika was placed at the top of the page. Under the heading “description,” Cookson wrote, “You know the drill guys.” It was the fourth time that a call to murder Jews had been put on Facebook within recent days.

    The African Hebrew Israelite Nation of Jerusalem (also known as The African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem or Black Hebrews or Black Hebrew Israelites) is a small spiritual group whose members believe they are descended from the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. With a population of over 5,000, most members live in their own community in Dimona, Israel, with additional families in Arad, Mitzpe Ramon, and the Tiberias area. At least some of them consider themselves to be Jewish, but mainstream Judaism does not consider them to be Jewish. The group was founded in Chicago by a former steel worker named...

Helen Thomas issued the following statement today: “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.” I’m satisfied. Who among us hasn’t innocently stumbled into a statement of support for ethnic cleansing when we didn’t really mean it? In fact, that might explain Jake Knotts’s slur on Nikki Haley....

    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.

Frank, in a wide-ranging interview with the Herald, went on to say that "as a Jew" Israeli treatment of Arabs around some of the West Bank settlements makes me ashamed that there would be Jews that would engage in that kind of victimization of a minority.

Daniel Pearl was beheaded by Islamic extremists because he was an American and a Jew. “My name is Daniel Pearl, I am a Jewish-American.” On February 21, 2002, a videotape was released titled The Slaughter of the Spy-Journalist, the Jew Daniel Pearl.

    New legislation now being proposed in the Massachusetts state legislature to ban circumcision of any male children, including Jewish children, comes very close to saying, "Yes, it should be a crime." Circumcision of infant males has been a requirement of Jewish faith and identity since the time of Abraham. Meanwhile, just a year ago this week, two very powerful state legislators in Connecticut proposed a bill that would have had the government take over the finances of the Catholic Church. (It took a rally drawing thousands of folks to the state capitol to persuade them to withdraw the measure.) How...

    Tikkun Olam is a Jewish precept that most closely translated means repair (perfect) the world. Each Jew is tasked to perform Tikkun Olam throughout their lives. Unfortunately, both for Jews and the World, many Jews have come to interpret Tikkun Olam to mean social justice. This has led them to attempt to perform Tikkun Olam through governance leaving the job to governments to implement social justice through legislation and government programs. This has led many Jews to follow the false promises of socialism and further allowed them to transfer their personal responsibility to change the world for the better to...

    Catholic League president Bill Donohue tells of the real-life consequences of what would happen if a bill by New York State Assemblywoman Margaret Markey passed today:“An 18-year-old who was allegedly raped by a public school teacher the week after Thanksgiving is out of luck—the 90 day clock allowed by law to file a claim for an offense in a public institution is up. But a student who was allegedly raped in a Catholic or Jewish school when JFK was president could bring suit (for one year, there is no time limit on claims affecting private institutions). After a year,...

    Today being the official end for another year of Israeli Apartheid Week, let's address the absurd lament from its enthusiasts that you can't criticize Israel today without being labelled an anti-Semite. Bull. First, let's dispense with "anti-Semite" -- a confusing term since Arabs can be Semites and many Jews aren't. Instead, let's call it what it is -- "Jew hatred." So, can people criticize Israel without being accused of Jew hatred? Of course.

    As an eighth generation rabbi and someone who lost much family in the Holocaust, it could just be me, but this official Jewish response seems outrageously over the top. Do millions of American Jews sufficiently care that the Pope revoked the excommunication of this unheard of bishop such that major Jewish organizations should devote so much energy and attention to this and turn it into a cause célčbre worthy of front page attention? And is this the way we speak to each other after decades of successful inter-faith work on improving our relationship?

    Roseanne Barr has described Israel as "a Nazi state" for its conflict with Palestine. The comedian, who is Jewish, has used her radio show and blog to criticise the country's decision to attack the Gaza strip. "Israel is a Nazi state. The Jewish Soul is being tortured in Israel. The destruction of the Jews in Israel has been assured with this inhuman attack on civilians in Gaza," she wrote on her website. However, the former sitcom actress has since retracted her remarks and claimed to be pro-Israel. "I am going to shut up now. Forever, perhaps. I cannot take the...

The title character, a gay Austrian fashion journalist, is already well known for storming runways at designers' shows and aiming to embarrass industry figures in interviews.

    In my email this morning comes word that one group of pro-Hamas, pro-Jihadists supporters is encouraging aligned American Jews and others to go to synagogues on Friday night or Saturday morning and stage a protest. “Jews especially should be doing these actions,” encourage the protest organizers. The plan is to enter shuls in groups of 3-4 “and – in dignified firm and unemotional voices – repeat “STOP THE KILLING.” The protesters plan to bring along a video camera to record the congregants’ responses. “I see no possible legal impediment to this. The public, and certainly Jews – cannot be barred...
