  • Hitler clothing stores in Gaza strip. (Israel wont prosecute)

    A clothing store in Gaza City named Hitler 2 is displaying mannequins with knives strapped to their hands as an homage to the upsurge in stabbing attacks on Israelis by Palestinians. Hijaz Abu Shanab, a 20-year-old shopper, said: "The name of the shop is 'Hitler' and I like him because he was the the most anti-Jewish person. I like the clothes and the name, it is fantastic."

    No matter how low your opinion of Donald Trump and his cronies, somehow they still manage to surprise you. It’s been evident for a while now that Sebastian Gorka, Trump’s top counterterrorism adviser, has at least flirted with fascism. One clue was when Gorka, who was born in London to Hungarian parents, dressed up for one of Trump’s inaugural balls in a black braided jacket popular with the Hungarian far right, pinned with a medal associated with Hungarian Nazi collaborators. Then in February, Jewish newspaper the Forward found that from 2002–2007, when Gorka was active in politics in Hungary, he...

  • Anti-Israel Bernie Sanders, Defended Jesse Jackson's Anti-Semitism, Accuses Trump of Anti-Semitism

    Shortened title. Full title: Anti-Israel Bernie Sanders, Who Defended Jesse Jackson's Anti-Semitism, Accuses Trump of Anti-Semitism While Bernie Sanders is of Jewish ancestry, he lost the Jewish vote because of his rabid hatred for the Jewish state (he at one point falsely accused Israel of killing 10,000 people) and his association with anti-Semites. Even though Jews were disgusted by Jesse Jackson's anti-Semitic slurs, Bernie Sanders backed his presidential campaign. As with Keith Ellison, the latest anti-Semitic candidate who had his support, even trafficking with Farrakhan did not bother Bernie Sanders. Here's a little bit of the ugly history of Bernie...

The unnecessary punctuation in the name is also annoying. As is the fact that the founder of the gym, Anne Mahlum, can’t just take Ivanka Trump’s money and shut up about it.Here’s what she just posted to Facebook, because of course you have to post these things to Facebook:Mahlum doesn’t specify which “rights” are being “threatened” by Ivanka’s father, because that doesn’t matter. Facts don’t matter, only feelings do. And now that Mahlum knows that...

    It would be interesting to know how many of the useful idiots donning “pussy hats” at Saturday's massive “Women's March on Washington” had any idea—or even cared to know—who the principal organizers of the event were. The answer is undoubtedly close to zero, since the purpose of the entire charade—like all leftist charades—was merely to give the participants an opportunity to publicly signal their own moral superiority while smearing—as racists and fascists—anyone who doesn't accept socialism, identity politics, and perpetual grievance mongering as the ultimate expressions of the American Dream. But for those who actually have an aversion to mindless...

The simple but vital step this administration must take before its term expires on Jan. 20 is to grant American diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine, as 137 countries have already done, and help it achieve full United Nations membership. . .

Jewish activist Ben Gross of the Israel Advocacy Movement had attempted to enter a public talk by Galloway last week, but was rejected and physically blocked from entering. If Gross was under any doubt as to why he was turned away, Galloway himself quickly made it clear to his audience that it was his pro-Israel sympathies which made him a persona non grata. ...

According to Al Sharpton on today's Morning Joe, Trump's offense is the graver. Sharpton suggests that Hillary's attack on Monica Lewinsky should be understood as a woman "dealing with someone who was in an indiscretion with her husband." Sharpton thus paints a picture of poor Hillary, the wronged woman, fighting her rival for the affections of her husband. As Trump...

  • King: Jesus depictions today further promote a white supremacist agenda

    To be clear, Christmas in the United States, despite the name, has very little to do with Jesus Christ and everything to do with consumerism and gift giving. However, side by side with Easter, it’s also the time when we are most likely to see depictions of Jesus used as tools of white supremacy. In Atlanta, I see them everywhere I go. Jesus as a blond-haired, blue-eyed baby and his blue-eyed supermodel mother are ubiquitous and done without even a slight hint of humor. It's preposterous. It would truly be no different from depicting Christopher Columbus as a dark-skinned African...

There are a lot of good reasons, for instance, to really dislike Donald Trump. But we can’t be satisfied with disliking Trump. His supporters have to be racists, neo-Nazis, dimwits, Democrat trolls, nativists, and all manner and means of odious. These attacks, in particular, puzzle me...

Mr. Carter, speaking at a news conference at the Carter Center here, said his health had been under scrutiny since May, when he had a cold while traveling in Guyana. The former president added that the cancer, which he said was melanoma, had been found in his liver, part of which was removed during a procedure on Aug. 3. He described the melanoma on his brain as four “very small spots.”

Carter had a "small mass" removed from his liver in an early-August surgical procedure. Carter, elected in 1976 and ousted in the 1980 election by Ronald Reagan, has a family history of pancreatic cancer -- a disease that claimed...

    Is US President Barack Hussein Obama an anti-Semite? This question has lingered in the air since his first presidential bid in 2008. It first arose due to the anti-Semitic sermons that Jeremiah Wright, his pastor for more than 20 years, made as Obama and his family sat in the pews. Throughout the six-and-a-half years of his presidency, Obama has laughed off the concerns. But he has not dispelled them. And this failure has hurt him. So last week, Obama went to significant lengths to answer the question about his feelings toward Israel and the Jewish people once and for all....

    To understand what feeds former president Jimmy Carter's anti-Israeli frenzy, look at his early links to Arab business. Between 1976-1977, the Carter family peanut business received a bailout in the form of a $4.6 million, "poorly managed" and highly irregular loan from the National Bank of Georgia (NBG). According to a July 29, 1980 Jack Anderson expose in The Washington Post, the bank's biggest borrower was Mr. Carter, and its chairman at that time was Mr. Carter's confidant, and later his director of the Office of Management and Budget, Bert Lance.

In its first public response to Netanyahu's election triumph, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said President Obama still believes in a two-state solution. This was after Netanyahu, shortly before the vote, reversed his stance and stated he would not allow the creation of a Palestinian state. Earnest acknowledged Wednesday that...

    This morning, the White House conspicuously avoided sending any message of congratulations to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his sweeping victory yesterday. Weekly Standard reports: On CNN this morning, White House aide David Simas avoided congratulating Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the Israeli elections. Instead, he would only congratulate the Israeli people on having an election.“We want to congratulate the Israeli people for the democratic process for the election that they just engaged in with all the parties that engaged in that election. As you know now, the hard work of coalition building begins. Sometimes that takes a...

    The people at State who are responsible for this probably didn’t see anything amiss. They probably believe much the same thing, even if they wouldn’t state it in the same lurid terms: they likely think that if Israel would just go away, peace would prevail in the Middle East.

    On Friday’s “NewsHour” on PBS, New York Times columnist David Brooks was critical of the notion of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressing a joint session of Congress due to the politicization of the state of Israel. “I think it’s a political disaster,” Brooks said. “It’s a substantive disaster for the state of Israel. I think it’s political disaster for Bibi Netanyahu back home, because they’re — most Israelis are really worried about the state of the relationship. It’s different than the past times, in part because it’s — as Mark said, it’s partisan now. Suddenly, Republicans are pro-Israel. And...

    Matthews said, “Let me finish tonight with this crapstorm that has Netanyahu has started. All the Prime Minister had to do to avoid all this fighting with Washington was to speak out. That’s what he could have done, speak out the second he heard that the invitation for him to address the US Congress was issued without the knowledge of the American President. All he had to do was say ‘I will only come if this invitation is bipartisan, and certainly only if the President of the United States has approved it.’ All he had to do was that just...
  • Why couldn't Scott Walker agree that President Obama is a Christian?

    "....In Walker's defense, Tim Graham of the Media Research Center (“Exposing and Combating Liberal Media Bias”) offers this exegesis: “Walker, the son of a Protestant minister, hears the question very differently: asking if someone is a Christian is a very personal question, asking whether someone has committed themselves to Jesus in their heart. It’s like asking if he knows how often Obama prays. His reluctance to answer for someone he doesn’t know is not a ‘No.’ " Nice try, but the political context of the question was clear and it’s the one Milbank mentioned: the conviction that “Obama is a...
  • Obama Calls Terror Attack on Paris Jews ‘Random’ Shooting

    President Barack Obama has called the terror attack on Jews in a kosher supermarket in Paris last month an act of random violence, rather than a terror attack or an antisemitic attack. Obama’s remark appears in an interview with Matt Yglesias of Vox.com. The president calls the attackers “violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.” He elides past the religion of the attackers or the victims in an attack that claimed four innocent lives. Obama was responding to a sympathetic question by Yglesias about whether “the media sometimes overstates...

    House Speaker John Boehner made a mistake inviting Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before Congress next month -- and the Israeli prime minister erred by accepting, legendary conservative pundit Pat Buchanan says. "I disagree with what John Boehner did and I disagree with what the prime minister did," Buchanan said Thursday on "The Steve Malzberg Show," on Newsmax TV. Netanyahu is set to address Congress on the dangers of Iran's growing nuclear program on March 3 following an invitation by Boehner. But Boehner did not follow normal protocol by coordinating the invite with the Obama administration, which then announced the president...

    Jerusalem Post ^ | 02/03/2015 04:51 | (Reuters, Tovah Lazaroff)
    Canadian legal expert William Schabas said on Monday he would resign his post as head of a UN Human Rights Council inquiry into the 2014 Gaza war, after Israel charged that he had worked as a consultant for the Palestine Liberation Organization in 2012. In a letter on the matter, a copy of which was seen by Reuters, Schabas said he would step down immediately to prevent the issue from overshadowing the preparation of the report, which is due to be published in March. Schabas’ departure highlights the sensitivity of the UN investigation just weeks after prosecutors at the International...
