    A British lawyer is accusing the German government of violating the country's constitution by refusing to restore the citizenship of thousands of people descended from victims of the Nazis. He argues that the law began to be misapplied under the lingering influence of former Nazis in the 1950s and 60s, and that it's still being misapplied today. James Strauss has lived all his life in New York but in the 1930s his family ran an inn and butcher's business in the town of Gunzenhausen, south of Nuremberg. It was here that an event known as the Bloody Palm Sunday pogrom...

    James Polite, who was charged with hate crimes and arson after he allegedly set fire to seven Jewish sites and vandalized a synagogue, was released from jail without bail Tuesday, according to court records. Polite allegedly wrote “Die Jew Rats” and “Hitler” at the Union Temple of Brooklyn in November 2018. Security footage allegedly showed him setting setting fires at “seven shuls and yeshivas in Williamsburg.” The incidents led to the cancellation of a Democratic event at the synagogue, with a candidate saying it highlighted the need to vote out “hate.” Polite is a self-identified queer black man who was...

    Most members of New Mexico’s congressional delegation reacted with ire to President Donald Trump’s drone strike that killed Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, a powerful commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps, early Friday at Baghdad International Airport. Soleimani’s death was first reported by official Iranian media and confirmed by a news release from the Department of Defense that said Soleimani was “actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq.” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CNN that Soleimani had orchestrated an “imminent” attack but would not elaborate where or when the attack was to take place. Sen....

    The family of a man who was stabbed in the head in a Hanukkah attack in New York has released a graphic photo of him in his hospital bed as they say he may never regain consciousness. Josef Neumann was among the five people injured when Grafton Thomas, 37, allegedly stormed into a rabbi's home in Monsey during a Hanukkah celebration last Saturday. Neumann's family say the knife used in the attack penetrated his skull and impacted his brain. He also suffered three cuts to the head, a cut to his neck and his right arm was shattered.

The accused attacker, whose name was not released, was transferred back to Rockland County around 4 a.m. from the 32nd Precinct by State Troopers, the...

At her second arraignment in three days, Tiffany Harris, 30, was ordered into supervised release for the latest incident, in which she allegedly slugged a woman in the face in front of her two young children early Sunday in Prospect Heights.[snip] Harris, hit with charges including assault, menacing and endangering the welfare of a child, declined comment as she left the courtroom. The incident came just two...

    SNIP Sarah Bernhardt and Franz Kafka; Albert Einstein and Rosalind Franklin; Benjamin Disraeli and (sigh) Karl Marx — how is it that a people who never amounted even to one-third of 1 percent of the world’s population contributed so seminally to so many of its most pathbreaking ideas and innovations? The common answer is that Jews are, or tend to be, smart. When it comes to Ashkenazi Jews, it’s true. “Ashkenazi Jews have the highest average I.Q. of any ethnic group for which there are reliable data,” noted one 2005 paper. “During the 20th century, they made up about 3...

    Beginning with their enslavement in Egypt, when Pharaoh ordered Hebrew midwives to murder all newborn Jewish males, throughout Israel's captivity under the Babylonians and the Assyrians, to the Holocaust, Israel has been targeted for destruction. But long ago God promised the prophet Jeremiah that Israel would cease to be a nation only when the sun, the moon and the stars had stopped shining. “‘Only if these decrees vanish from my sight,’ declared the Lord, ‘will the descendants of Israel ever cease to be a nation before me.’”The feast of Chanukah—the word means ‘dedication’ in Hebrew—commemorates an event in Israel’s history...

    New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy joined Jersey City's mayor Tuesday in calling for a school board member to quit over comments she made about the shooting at a kosher market, referring to Jews as 'brutes' and questioning whether the shooters had a point to make in attacking Jews. Murphy, a Democrat, tweeted hours after Jersey City Democratic Mayor Steven Fulop said that Board of Education member Joan Terrell Paige's comments on the social media platform from the weekend 'has no place in our schools.' 'My opinion is she should resign,' Fulop said in his Tuesday tweet. 'That type of language...

    A rise in violent anti-Semitic attacks is accompanied by a rise in seemingly legitimate opposition to Israel, led by the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS), a new report found. It said anti-Semites are running a constellation of BDS groups on college campuses and other leftist hotbeds and that they are using progressive rhetoric to use ordinary progressive Americans as unwitting “pawns” in an anti-Semitic movement. It said historically, Jews have been positioned as the enemies of the most powerful forces of the era, such as calling them Christ-killers in Christian Europe of old. In modern times, it said, the...

    In the 1940s, when Mel Brooks launched himself into comedy, he invented a persona: “Crazy Mel.” Perhaps you remember Crazy Mel: He was exuberant, reckless, loud—a wild, comedic id. Carson loved him. So did his audience. When Crazy Mel wasn’t vamping on TV, he was mugging in photos, including one gloriously zany shot in which he appears wild-eyed and open-mouthed, like a zoo animal hit with a tranquilizer dart. Silently, he conveys shock, fear, and aggression. “Tragedy is when I cut my finger,” Brooks once said. “Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die.” That crazy photo...

    A boy wore a Trump yarmulke to the White House signing event for the president’s executive order on anti-Semitism Wednesday. The 12-year-old boy named Austin wore a red yarmulke with the president’s last name embroidered on it as he was invited up to address the crowd. “Thank you for having me at the White House today,” he said to Trump. “It was very unexpected. My mom pulled me out of school when the White House called, and I was in the middle of lunch. Probably one of the first times I was ever speechless.” Trump mentioned Austin’s comments were not...

    Just under 30 amicus briefs were filed for June Medical Services v.

The "friend of the court" briefs represented about 200 organizations and more than 700 individuals. Though many of the briefs came from pro-abortion rights advocates like Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union, a handful came from non-partisan groups including the American Bar Association, the American Medical Association, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Academy of Pediatrics....
