    A baby girl found crawling across a New Jersey road Saturday prompted officials to launch an investigation -- and a photo of the shocking incident has gone viral on social media. The motorist who spotted the child, Cory Cannon of Eatontown, told the Asbury Park Press he spotted the toddler crawling across the road in Lakewood at around 5 p.m. "I thought it was a toy or something until she moved," he told the newspaper. "I knew I needed to get some sort of proof and my GPS was open on my phone, so I used my work vehicle to...

    On August 27, around 22:00 P.M., the Kosher restaurant "Schalom" in Chemnitz was raided by a group of neo-Nazis clad in black. The town has seen a deluge of violent demonstrations by far-right groups in world past two weeks, which began in protest of the murder of a local citizen, suspected to have been committed by Syrian and Iraqi asylum seekers on August 26. The group reportedly shouted: "Get out of Germany, Jewish pigs," and hurled stones and bottles at the restaurant. Uwe Dziuballa, the owner of "Schalom," was wounded after being hit by one of the rocks and the...

    On Oct. 31, 1517, Luther nailed a copy of his 95 Theses to the wooden doors of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. In his theses, Luther criticized the pope and Catholic Church practices like the selling of indulgences for redemption. But Luther wrote more than just the 95 Theses. He’s also the author of a corpus of virulent anti-Jewish writings. Over the next 30 years, as Protestantism took root, Luther evolved from being tolerant of Jews, hopeful they could become good Christians, to being disgusted with them. He described Jews as blasphemous, contaminators and murderers who should be expelled by...

    When Carinne Sjoberg dissolved the Jewish Community of Umea in northern Sweden, she knew it would send shock waves far beyond the small congregation that she had spent decades building. Neo-Nazis from the Nordic Resistance Movement, beginning in 2016, pasted stickers with fascist imagery on Umea’s Jewish community center, “making the place look like after Kristallnacht,” Sjoberg said. The closure followed surveillance activity on the center by the neo-Nazis, who published details about individual visitors. “I didn’t take it lightly,” Sjoberg, a 56-year-old Jewish mother of two, told JTA about the decision to close. “I hate giving neo-Nazis this victory....

    Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Wednesday celebrated his recent discovery that he has Jewish ancestry. “Guess I need to start saying ‘L’Chaim’ now, too!” Ryan tweeted, along with a gif of him toasting with a glass of Guinness. The clip was from a toast Ryan gave during an annual Friends of Ireland luncheon, using the Irish toast “sláinte.” Ryan discovered his Jewish heritage during an upcoming episode of the PBS show “Finding Your Roots.” Host Henry Louis Gates Jr. told Ryan during the show that about 3 percent of his DNA is Ashkenazi Jewish, and that he traced the ancestry...

    'We knew what has happening to the Jews in Germany and we wanted Germany to lose the war,' Shapiro says NEW YORK (JTA) — Growing up in Imperial Japan during World War II, Isaac Shapiro’s best friend was a member of the Hitler Youth. The friend wore the organization’s brown shirt uniform to their international school every day, but not because he wanted to — he was German and Japan was an ally of the Nazi regime, so he was expected to project support for the Fuehrer. Instead of instilling fear into his classmates, however, the uniform had the opposite...

[Editor's note: To help push back against the enforcement of Islamic blasphemy laws on the American campus, support the Freedom Center's campaign Stop University Support for Terrorists.] As Americans, we support everyone's right to freedom of speech and to peacefully protest, but we are also aware that disruption is distinct from protest. Interference with a public event deprives those in attendance of their own right to free speech and assembly. When this line is crossed, protestors become disruptors. In California, disrupting public events is a violation of penal code 403....

    A Kansas state senator faced criticism from Jewish rabbis this week for describing the aborting of 60 million unborn babies a Holocaust. The Kansas City Star reports state Sen. Steve Fitzgerald, a pro-life Republican from Leavenworth, often brings up the Nazi Holocaust when discussing the abortion issue. He currently is running for a U.S. Congressional district in Kansas. Recently, the Rabbinical Association of Greater Kansas City complained about Fitzgerald using the comparison, claiming he is using the massive slaughter of Jewish people by the Nazis “for political purposes,” according to the report. “Senator, your words abuse the memory of the...

    Jewish Democratic lawmakers criticize Netanyahu over nixing of deal with UN to avoid mass deportations of African infiltrators from Israel. “We were dismayed to hear that the agreement had been suspended, then canceled, leaving the Sudanese and Eritrean asylum seekers in limbo, with no clear next step,” said the letter sent Monday and initiated by four of the top Jewish lawmakers. Netanyahu said he would revert to his earlier plan to send the approximately 38,000 Sudanese and Eritrean / Ethiopian infiltrators to an unnamed African country, believed to be Uganda.

    A British organization has launched an ambitious project aimed at restoring old, abandoned synagogues across Europe and bringing them back to community life, and commemorating communities that were wiped out in the Holocaust. The Foundation of Jewish Heritage has identified 3,300 pre-Second World War buildings used for Jewish prayer, of which at least 19 could be brought back into use - out of an estimated total of 17,000 that were in use before the Second World War. The remaining buildings, of which just 718 are still being used as synagogues, have been carefully catalogued based on their artistic, urban, and...

    Eric Greitens, a Democrat turned Republican, who also happens to be the Governor of the Show-Me State was indicted and booked last week on a felony invasion of privacy charge. The grand jury indictment stems from a photo that Greitens, a married man, allegedly snapped of a partially clad lover during a sexual tryst in the basement of his home in the spring of 2015, one year before his winning gubernatorial campaign. This is a big story, one that has great ramifications for state and national politics. It is a commentary on the crashing of a promising career. It includes...

    Contrary to other European countries, such as France or Norway, Poland was directly controlled by Nazi Germany. There was no puppet regime in Poland to assist the Germans, like the Vichy or Quisling governments, and the Nazis annexed parts of the country, while putting the rest under the control of a German governor, Hans Frank. Frank subjected Poland to a terror "much fiercer and more protracted [...] than anywhere in Europe," scholar Norman Davies says, as cited by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. This terror included capital punishment for offering any help to Jews. While it’s true that Poles aided,...

    Q: Is the Tide Pod Challenge kosher? A: ... NO! There is an explicit biblical commandment against doing stupid s--t that endangers your health. Genesis 9:5 states, "But for your own life-blood I will require a reckoning: I will require it of every beast; of man, too, will I require a reckoning for human life, of every man for that of his fellow man," and the revered biblical commentator Rashi understood this verse to be a prohibition against suicide. According to the American Association of Poison Control, “The ‘laundry packet challenge’ is neither funny nor without serious health implications,” said...

    Long-lost tapes reveal details of a foiled plan by the Jewish Avengers to kill six million Germans by poisoning the country's water supply in revenge for the Holocaust.

The recordings - which have never been heard in public - form the heart of a new documentary entitled Holocaust: The Revenge Plot, due to air on January 28. Recorded in 1985, when their leader, Vilnius Ghetto survivor and Israeli poet Abba Kovner, was dying of...

    In Paris's 12th arrondissement, on Bercy Street by the banks of the River Seine, on the 13th floor of the Ministry of Finance is France's tax authority headquarters. Something has been afoot there recently that is liable to upset French Jews and spook their relations with the country in which they live. Under the radar, a secret department has been created with the sole purpose of handling tax evasion by French Jews. "Globes" can reveal for the first time the details of the secret department that is targeting Jews in France and new immigrants from France in Israel.
