    Holocaust Survivor Who Cheated Death In Pittsburgh Shooting Is Pro-Trump October 30, 2018 By Alyssa FisherHolocaust survivor Judah Samet said he doesn’t believe President Trump’s harsh rhetoric bears the blame of the mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue, where 11 people were killed at prayer, the Washington Post reported.Samet narrowly avoided the shooting — he was four minutes late to morning services at the Tree of Life Congregation on Saturday, enough time for officers to stop him in the parking lot, the Forward reported.He expressed fear at the rise in anti-Semitism and white nationalist groups but said he doesn’t think...

    n August, now Rep.-Elect Ilhan Omar told a crowd of more than 1,000 people that the Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement was “counteractive” because it wasn’t “helpful in getting a two-state solution.” Now, less than a week after Omar’s election to Congress representing Minnesota’s Fifth District, Omar is explicitly stating her position as a BDS supporter in what many argue is a contradiction of the stance she took at Beth El Synagogue. In a statement to the website Muslim Girl, attributed to the Congresswoman-elect’s campaign staff, “Ilhan believes in and supports the BDS movement, and has fought to make sure...

    THE INQUIRER ^ | November 5, 2018 | Samantha Melamed,
    On Friday afternoon, with just a few hours before sundown and the start of the Sabbath, David Parvey hurried to a South Philadelphia gun shop called Firing Line to get his new 9-millimeter pistol. To Parvey, who attends an Orthodox Jewish synagogue in Center City, it felt like the only rational response to the Oct. 27 mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, where 11 congregants were killed. "I legally have the right to at least be able to match evil with some sort of response, and in my mind I would be dumb not to," said...

    Jewish leaders from Iowa wrote a letter for the Des Moines Register Tuesday condemning Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) for white supremacist views. Alan Steckman, president of Adas Israel in Mason City and John Pleasants, president of Ames Jewish Congregation, explained that they felt the need to respond in the wake of Saturday's shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. The two criticized King for using "funds from a Holocaust education organization to meet with a notoriously anti-Semitic propaganda site" as "shocking beyond any previous outrage." They said that King's promotion of white supremacist ideology had previously gone unchallenged...

That’s been confirmed now as the NY Post reports. The man who killed eight people at a Pittsburgh synagogue was a virulent anti-Semite who apparently posted, “Screw your optics.

    There is no hiding the ugliness of Louis Farrakhan’s latest antisemitic comments, in which he likened Jews to termites. There is one thing you do with termites. Exterminate them! Termites are destructive. Termites are nasty. Termites survive by destroying. Termites do nothing good. Rid the earth of them! My good friend, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, was therefore right to tweet this in response: “Louis Farrakhan calling Jews termites is a virtual call to genocide. The Nazis regularly referred to Jews as roaches and pests who needed to be exterminated. I call on African-American leaders like my close friend @CoryBooker to immediately...

A gunman killed 38 tourists, mostly from Britain, in the attack that was claimed by the Islamic State (ISIS)....

    The UK Labour Party has been charged with spewing anti-Semitic sentiments in recent years. In a 2013 speech at the Palestinian Return Center in London, for instance, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the following: Where, then, lies the grievance with Corbyn? At that meeting on Sunday, Jewish Labourites were not opposing the party leader for championing the Palestinians. They were opposing him for, to take one example, his 2013 attack on a group of “Zionists” he’d encountered, where he tackled them not on their arguments but on ethnic grounds, noting that despite “having lived in this country for a very...

Beinart was not, despite his claims, detained. He was asked about his participation in that protest by the Center for Jewish Nonviolence. The Center, despite its name, is used by Jewish Voice...

    Winston Churchill called Jews "the most formidable and the most remarkable race, which has ever appeared in the world." As a Jew, I am perplexed by the Jews' remarkably irrational commitment to the Democratic Party and their formidable opposition to Donald Trump. The old saw, "There are two types of Jews: those who believe that Judaism is about social justice and those who know Hebrew," contains more than a kernel of truth. By and large, orthodox Jews voted for Trump in 2016, showing superior foresight. Domestically, as the Trump economic policies are producing prosperity and economic dynamism, Jews benefit just...
