  • Pelosi Defends Putting Ilhan Omar on Committee [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 20 Jan 2019 | John Semmens
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) defended placing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) on the House Foreign Affairs Committee despite her anti-Semitic and anti-Israel views, calling it “a small step toward achieving a balanced perspective. You know, we have several Jews already on the Committee. Bringing aboard a Muslim who is not afraid to speak out against the Jewish drive toward world domination fills a vacuum that needed filling.” Pelosi admitted that “for years the Democratic Party has been hypnotized by Jewish propaganda. Given the very small population of Jews in America and the world compared to the rapidly growing number of...
  • Freshman Democrat Rashida Tlaib unleashes anti-Semitic dual loyalty smear

    Following the silly controversy over her profanity-laced call for President Trump's impeachment, freshman Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., has unleashed an anti-Semitic dual loyalty smear in voicing opposition to legislation combating boycotts against Israel, charging supporters of the bill "forgot what country they represent." Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has signaled that the legislation, part of a package of bills related to Middle East policy, would be the first that the newly sworn in Senate would vote on. It would provide more leeway for state and local governments to refuse to do business with entities that have a policy...

    The Romans generally tolerated other religions, allowing and even welcoming Egyptian gods into their pantheon. Though they viewed the monotheistic Jews as being odd, they left more or less free to practice their own religion. The great Jewish revolt was not a religious war, but a war against Roman imperialism and unfair taxation. In the 60’s CE a financial crisis forced Rome to raise the taxes throughout the empire. The Jews in Jerusalem resisted the extra taxes heavily and fighting broke out after Roman forces looted a temple and killed as many as 6,000 citizens. This massacre prompted a region-wide...
  • Why was a Muslim doctor who vowed to poison Jewish patients working at the famed Cleveland Clinic?

    American Thinker ^ | 01/02/2019 | Monica Showalter
    Is there any profession that merits the esteem that doctors have?  I don't think so. What doctors do not only requires significant brains, but requires professionalism, because patient trust is so critical.  Without that trust, how would a doctor be able to get a patient to take his or her clothes off, bend over for an exam, or accept a medical treatment with bad side effects?  Trust is what makes the whole profession work. This is why this story out of Cleveland is so chilling. Medical resident at Cleveland Clinic Lara Kollab, who published antisemitic statements on Twitter regarding her Jewish patients at the hospital, was dismissed from...

    New York University student senators passed a resolution Thursday in support of the university divesting from three companies associated with the Israeli government and instituting a “socially responsible” investment policy. Israeli-affiliated companies named in the resolution included Caterpillar, General Electric, and Lockheed Martin. Only NYU students were allowed to attend the senate meeting, each senator's vote remained anonymous, and those who wished to address the room were limited to two minutes when speaking. The meeting, which was expected to last for about two hours, was ultimately extended until it spanned nearly three-and-a-half hours.

    As we pause to remember the Holocaust and mourn the six million Jewish lives it took, we should also commemorate those who attfleempted to save some of Hitler’s victims. While most of the world looked away and ignored the plight of Europe’s Jews, a small emerging country thousands of miles away resolved to rescue as many as possible. The Philippines, a nation of some 7,000 islands in the South China Sea, was one of the few countries to open its doors to Jews fleeing the Holocaust. The Philippine government was willing to grant more than 10,000 visas to Jews, and...

    The Twitter feud between Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) continues. On Sunday, Ocasio-Cortez attempted to compare the Central American caravan's riders to Jews fleeing from Nazi Germany. Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime. It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany.It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria.And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America. https://t.co/qhv7Rr1itn— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@Ocasio2018) November 25, 2018 It wasn't long before Sen. Lindsey Graham chimed in and suggested Ocasio-Cortez learn more about the Holocaust. I recommend she take a...

    Detailed proposals and recommendations for combating antisemitism in Europe were presented on Wednesday at a conference in Vienna arranged by the Federal Chancellery of Austria led by Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz. The recommendations, called the “Catalogue of Policies to Combat Antisemitism,” were drawn up by the European Jewish Congress with the assistance of academics from universities in Vienna, Tel Aviv and New York. “Antisemitism and anti-Zionism are getting blurred, but they are two sides of the same coin,” Kurz said during his opening address at the high level conference, titled “Europe beyond antisemitism and anti-Zionism – securing Jewish life in...

    Airbnb says: No Jews allowed. The apartment-sharing service has sided against Israel by banning and delisting the apartments of peaceful Jewish civilians living in Judea and Samaria. And that’s not even the worst part. Nor is the worst part that Airbnb is helping propel the destructive myth that Jews would abandon their claim to the disputed West Bank if only there were enough international pressure. No, the worst part is that Airbnb has singled out Jews, and only Jews, as the one group in the world that is worthy of such censure. That’s what makes its boycott a naked act...

    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...

October 31, 2018 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. The fake news media has made it official. Criticizing George Soros, an anti-Semite and alleged Nazi collaborator, is anti-Semitic.

    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...
