    There’s a new shocking revelation to the man whom Schenectady Police claim faked his own hate crime. It turns out he may not even be Jewish as he claimed to be. “I looked and said, ‘what the hell is going on here?'” That was Andrew King during a NEWS10 ABC interview in February. He showed the messages of hate, swastikas spray-painted on the front of his Schenectady home. ... They say he tried to convert several times but was turned down by at least two congregations. They strongly cautioned me that Mr. King does not represent the Jewish community and...
  • The Clintons Employ Muslim Brotherhood Officials? You Can’t Be Serious

    I don’t know who is more shocked about this, me or Huma Abedin, but it turns out that a former top Clinton Foundation official is also … a senior Muslim Brotherhood official who has just been arrested for – you’ll never guess – inciting violence in Egypt. Not to worry, I’m sure it was only moderate violence. The Washington Free Beacon’s Adam Kredo reports on Gehad [as in Jihad] el-Haddad: "A senior Muslim Brotherhood official who, until recently, had been employed by the William J. Clinton Foundation was arrested in Cairo on Tuesday and charged with inciting violence.Gehad el-Haddad served...

    The Local ^ | 28 Sep 2015
    On Sunday eastern Germany's first Buddhist graveyard opened in Dresden, marking a turning point for the region's Vietnamese community. But a missing symbol makes the burial ground a peculiarly German affair. The burial ground is long overdue, Ding Linger, a spokesperson for the Vietnamese Buddhist Centre in Dresden told The Local. "It's been needed for 40 years since Vietnamese people first came to East Germany," he said. Vietnamese are the largest immigrant population in east Germany, making up 100,000 of the population. Of those, 7,000 live in Dresden, reports the Hamburger Morgenpost. With around 85 percent of the Vietnamese population...

    It’s sad that we have to do an annual recap on this topic. It’s even sadder that we could do more frequent updates. The Amcha Intiative at the University of California, led by the estimable Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, a lecturer in the UC system, has compiled a “Swastika Tracker” which gives “a partial list of incidents where swastikas were found on U. S. campuses.” Swastikas have been display on at least 14 campuses so far this year including: • Stanford • Northwestern • The University of Missouri • Framingham State University • Farleigh Dickinson • Northeastern • Tufts • SUNY Purchase...

    DAVIS--On Saturday morning – the holiest day of the week for Jews – swastikas spray painted in red on their Jewish frat house were the last thing these brothers expected to wake up to. “I’m a freshman so I’ve never had to deal with such outward show of hate towards me and my people,” Itai Ofir said. Ofir and his Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi call it anti-Semitism at its worst. “I mean, you can see throughout history many Arab countries have tried to take down Israel,” Nir Voloshin said. Pro-Israel students say they feared recent events would lead to...

    DAVIS (CBS13) – A Jewish fraternity woke up to the hate symbols spray-painted on their home Saturday morning. Two red swastikas were found painted on Alpha Epsilon Pi’s house, an off-campus fraternity. The Davis Police Department says they are investigating the incident as a hate crime. AEPI brothers believe the vandalism was done in retaliation to their support for Israel, as this week the student body voted to pass an act that will urge the UC Regents to divest from companies that provide resources to Israel. The frat brothers say they’ve been very outspoken at those “divestment meetings” and believe...

    Last Friday night, swastikas, most of them backwards, were painted on at least five houses in Calgary SE. And, as in the case of the July 18 pro-Palestinian demonstration where the cops failed to show up while a family of pro-Israel demonstrators were punched, kicked, knocked to the ground and had their Israeli flags stolen, the police have once again downplayed what happened.

    Jon Lovitz may have been a comedian since he was 15, but for him, a prank involving maple syrup was no laughing matter. Lovitz took to his Twitter account to decry swastikas and “Jew” written in maple syrup on the front walkway of a childhood friend’s home in Northridge. Three girls, who admitted to what the Los Angeles Police called an ill-advised prank, have been permanently expelled from their school, Nobel Middle School, Lovitz tweeted Tuesday. The prank, which also included feces left on the family’s doorstep and toilet paper on the property’s trees, was discovered April 3. The family...

    Plans for National Coming Out Day are going well all across North Carolina – especially at UNC-Charlotte (UNCC). Conservative students at UNCC are planning a Conservative Coming Out Day in response to National Coming Out Day. I will be there to offer a diverse perspective on an important issue that has been largely ignored on our nation’s campuses. My speech will highlight several pending cases, which show that homosexuals are not the principal victims of civil rights violations in this country. Instead, they are the principal perpetrators of civil rights violations in this country – especially on our college campuses....

Like Edward R. Murrow in pre-Second World War Vienna and London, Mr. LeBreton put his personal safety at risk to file a brave report from the turbulent city of Vancouver. Sure, Canadians seem multicultural, friendly and good-natured on the surface. But that's just what they want you to think. Dig a...
