    The Knesset Education Committee on Tuesday approved a second and third reading of the “Cultural Loyalty Law”, which was promoted by Culture Minister Miri Regev. The bill will be brought for a vote in the Knesset plenum next Monday. It would allow government budgets to be revoked from cultural institutions that deny Israel’s existence as a Jewish and democratic state, incite to racism, violence and terrorism. MK Ofer Shelah, chairman of the Yesh Atid faction, was furious at the Education Committee’s approval of the bill and claimed that “behind the Cultural Loyalty Law there is nothing but a personal whim...
  • Ilhan Omar's Election Shows That Democrats Aren't Interested in Confronting Anti-Semitism

    Ilhan Omar, one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to Congress, is a new kind of politician. She's telegenic, ideologically progressive, widely celebrated by a media that's obsessed with identity politics. She's the kind of politician who can openly side with Hamas against Israel or spread "Protocols of the Elders of Zion"-style conspiracies on Twitter, claiming that Jews possess the supernatural ability to hypnotize the world as they unfurl their "evil." It's not surprising, then, that Omar also supports the "boycott, divestment and sanctions" movement. In a statement to the website Muslim Girl, someone on Omar's staff...

    In an indication of their growing estrangement with the Bush administration, neoconservatives are slamming the White House for failing to stop what they describe as an antisemitic campaign to marginalize them being conducted by the CIA and the State Department. This view was outlined in a memo circulating among neoconservative foreign policy analysts in Washington. Obtained by the Forward, the memo criticizes the White House for not refuting press reports on the FBI's investigation of Pentagon analyst Lawrence Franklin that suggest wrongdoing on the part of Jewish officials at the Defense Department. "If there is any truth to any of...

    He was arrested, subjected to humiliating interrogations, accused of spying for Israel, lived under the specter of a 13-year prison term and sold everything he owned to pay for his legal defense. But Lawrence Franklin, 63, a former senior officer in the U.S. Air Force, an intelligence expert, university professor and senior official in the U.S. administration, did not crack.

    Due to the combined application of the laws of the Third Reich of 1935 and 1938, the confiscation of all firearms from German Jews was categorically legalized. As a result, a massive (and effective) campaign for the confiscation of weapons had begun, and in many regions of Germany, the Jews were wholly disarmed in just six months – by November 1938. For example, the day before the pogrom, on November 8, 1938, the New York Times published an article reported that the head of the Berlin police noted with satisfaction that practically all firearms from Berlin Jews had already been...

    As expected, two Muslim women, Rashida Tlaib in Michigan and Ilhan Omar in Minnesota, have been overwhelmingly elected to Congress. The establishment media will celebrate these victories as triumphs of America’s “diversity”; unfortunately, in reality neither one is worth celebrating. Tlaib is a vociferous foe of Israel. With the Democrats now regaining control of the House, Tlaib is likely to be an energetic proponent of the new majority’s vendetta against the Middle East’s only democracy. The House is likely to do all it can to roll back President Trump’s pro-Israel polices, with Tlaib as well as Omar as becoming the...

    Startling video shows a group of teens hurl a metal pole through a Brooklyn synagogue window while congregation members were observing the Sabbath inside. The footage released by Williamsburg Shomrim on Twitter on Sunday shows half a dozen teens loitering near the synagogue on Franklin Avenue near Myrtle Avenue around 5:45 p.m. Saturday, according to the tweet. The kids are seen leaning against a wrought-iron fence talking to each other while one of the teens — wearing dark clothes and a white, patterned backpack — is carrying the metal pole, the video shows.

The group was caught on surveillance cameras hovering around the synagogue in the Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhood on Saturday. There were six boys in the group. Some wore black hoodies and some wore orange sweatshirts.

    Police released photos of two teens they believe drew swastikas on a Brooklyn Heights block the night before Halloween. BROOKLYN HEIGHTS -- Police have identified two suspects who allegedly drew swastikas and other hate messages on a quiet Brooklyn Height block the night before Halloween. Two men scrawled their hate-filled messages on a garage door and several homes on Garden Place between Joralemon and State streets at about 9:35 p.m. on Oct. 30, police said. Police released photos of two approximately 18-year-old suspects on Saturday. This act of vandalism was just one of several anti-semitic acts to occur in Brooklyn...

    Remember Trayon White? He’s the Washington D.C. city council member — a Democrat — who claimed that Jewish financiers control the climate. In his view, a mild snowfall in the District was an instance of “climate control” by the Rothschilds who “create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities.” White also opined that the Rothschilds control the World Bank and the federal government. There might have been a time when such rabid anti-Semitism would render White political poison. If so, that time has passed, at least among left-liberals. Far from steering clear of this anti-Semite, two left-liberal...

    CNN goes into typical leftist “downplay” mode. On Friday, just days after 11 people were murdered in a Pittsburgh synagogue, New York City , for vandalizing a New York synagogue with anti-Semitic messages. “Die Jew rats we are here,” read one message, along with “Jews better be ready,” and “Hitler.” The next day, CNN failed to report that Polite, 26, was a Democrat activist who had worked on the Obama campaign in 2008.  CNN described him as a “Brooklyn man” arrested and charged with a hate crime for the anti-Semitic messages and “criminal mischief and making graffiti.” Other reports found...

    A 26-year-old man charged with vandalizing a historic New York City synagogue on Friday, just days after the Pittsburgh massacre, has been identified as a former campaign worker for Barack Obama who was profiled by the New York Times in 2017. The Times described James Polite as a young man who “spent much of his childhood in foster care,” and performed canvassing work for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. After a chance meeting, he got a job that year as an intern for Christine Quinn, a former speaker of New York City’s city council who was also a former mayoral candidate....

    Many American Jews behave as if they do not understand that the Democratic Party has made a complete ideological turn in 190 years of its existence – from the far-right (and racist) party to the far-left (and anti-Semitic) party. The neo-Nazi who shot 11 people in the Pittsburgh synagogue is known for his posts on Twitter. He was ideologically close not only to the anti-Semite Perez and the anti-Semite Ellison (Chairman of the DNC and his deputy) but also to the anti-Semite Farrakhan. Farrakhan is also known to be a longtime friend and ally of many bosses of the Democratic...

    The suspect in a synagogue vandalism act that forced the cancellation of a Democratic event is reportedly a former City Hall employee who worked on anti-hate crime issues and is a Democratic activist, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned. The New York Times and a Jewish couple helped the impoverished gay black man attend college where he studied African American studies, according to The Times. He resented New York liberals as patronizing, and railed against Israel and cultural appropriation, according to his Facebook profile. Before knowing his identity, politicians said the vandalism demonstrated why voting Democratic was needed and...

    In the days following the murder rampage at the Tree of Life synagogue, I received several expressions of grief from friends who are committed Christians. One included in her note a verse from John Donne: "No man is an island entire of itself ... any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." This largeness of spirit is what I have come to know and love in America. The incubus of anti-Semitism, so ineradicable and durable elsewhere in the world, has been gloriously...

    Just past midnight on May 1, a young rabbinical student was walking home on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn when he thought he was being followed. A moment after that intuition struck, two men grabbed him, threw him against a car and started punching him. The victim had dropped a box containing $200, meant for charity, but the money went untouched. The student, it seemed, was attacked because he was overheard speaking Hebrew on his cellphone. His two assailants were indicted on assault and hate crime charges. No other American city is more closely associated with Jewish identity than New York...

    A political event hosted by “Broad City” star Ilana Glazer at a historic Brooklyn synagogue was canceled Thursday when a vandal scrawled “Kill all Jews” inside. The NYPD said “anti-Semitic messages” were discovered on the stairwell of Union Temple in Brooklyn Heights around 8 p.m. Thursday. At about 8:30, Glazer came out of the venue to tell the crowds that the 8 p.m. event, in which she was scheduled to interview journalist Amy Goodman and New York state Senate candidates Andrew Gounardes and Jim Gaughran, was canceled because of the graffiti. “She didn’t feel comfortable ushering 200 people into the...
