    Here's the problem with the "victim mentality": Those who have it generally ignore genuine victims. "Since the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation began publishing its annual audit of hate crimes in 1997, crimes targeting Jews have constituted the majority of all religiously motivated crimes every single year," according to the AMCHA Initiative, a human rights group in Santa Cruz, California dedicated to protecting Jewish Students. Arguably, college campuses are at the epicenter, as AMCHA puts it in their annual report on anti-Semitism on campus, of this trend. AMCHA looked at incidents at the 113 U.S. schools Jews were most likely...
  • Former Teacher At Muslim Private School: Student Called Boston Bombers ‘Jews’

    A student at a private Muslim school in Queens, New York called the Boston Marathon bombers Jews, a former teacher says. The New York Post reported Sunday that Nina Kossman, a former English teacher at the Razi School in Woodside, asked her students at one time: “Do you know what happens when people start hating each other for their differences?” One student replied, “My parents said they [the Boston bombers] were bad people. They were Jews.” […] “I was shocked,” said Koss­man. Kossman was removed from the private religious school last month after she told students the Adam and Eve...
  • ‘Israelis Toast Syrian Slaughter’: The Making of a Modern Blood Libel, Just in Time for Passover

    One of the more enduring anti-Semitic myths in Jewish history is the blood libel—the medieval claim that Jews bake their Passover matzo with the blood of gentile children. Perhaps most memorably, the libel was promoted by Osama Hamdan, the official spokesman of Hamas, the designated terrorist group that controls Gaza. The essence of the slander, as by many forms of bigotry, is the recasting of an innocuous Jewish tradition as something sinister. And this past week, just in time for Passover, anti-Israel activists on social media attempted to offer an update to this medieval calumny. It began when Israel’s deputy...

    Alan Dershowitz, a prominent Harvard Law School professor and liberal author, slammed the Democratic National Committee as hypocritical for politicizing White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s Hitler gaffe while ignoring its own problem with anti-Semitism. Mr. Dershowitz said on “CNN Tonight” that he’s willing to give Mr. Spicer “a pass” after the press secretary initially suggested during a briefing Tuesday, which also marked Passover, that Adolf Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons during WWII. “What happened here is the guy screwed up,” Mr. Dershowitz said, according to a clip published by Real Clear Politics. “He apologized, and he apologized from his...

    The Tufts University student senate passed a resolution calling on the university to divest from four companies that do business with Israel. The resolution, titled “A Resolution Calling for Tufts University to End Investments in The Israeli Occupation,” passed the Tufts Community Union Senate on Sunday night by a vote of 17 in favor and six opposed, with eight abstentions. More than 100 students attended the senate debate prior to the vote, according to the Tufts Daily student newspaper.

    Russia on Thursday publicly recognized West Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel. The announcement was made in a statement by Russia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs that addressed the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. In the statement, Moscow reaffirmed its "support for the two-state solution" while acknowledging that East Jerusalem should be the capital of the future Palestinian state.

    Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) on Monday protested an Oswego County school teacher’s assignment asking students to make the case for the European Holocaust as part of their training in “critical thinking.” Hikind demanded the resignation of NY Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia who defended the teacher. “I am calling for the immediate resignation of New York Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia following a reprehensible assignment from a high school teacher in Oswego county that asked students to defend Hitler’s ‘Final Solution’ to exterminate the Jewish people. The Commissioner actually defended the assignment as ‘critical thinking,'” Hikind wrote on his Facebook page Monday...

    The rise in anti-Semitic acts isn't because of Trump and it isn't Republican either. Remember the hysteria at the start of March over a wave of bomb threats to Jewish Community Centers and the desecration of graves in Jewish cemeteries? A plague of swastikas scrawling on Jewish buildings has been going on in America since November 2016. The blame was always dumped on Trump. The wild rhetoric put the blame on white supremacists, neo Nazis, alt-right racists, anyone coming to the surface in the wake of Trump’s rise to power. This level of Jew hatred could not be put at...

    On Sunday, convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh, a key organizer of anti-Trump marches who was responsible for the murder of two Israelis and lied her way into the United States, gave a defiant address to a Chicago conference. Odeh will soon leave the U.S. after filing a guilty plea to avoid prison under an agreement with the Department of Justice, which she claims is too “racist” under Attorney General Jeff Sessions to bother resisting in open court. The most shocking aspect of the Odeh saga is not that the mainstream Arab-American community backed her in her bizarre fight. Nor is...

    It has been years since I have written about the topic of antisemitism and the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX). The story of my association and rejection of the SSPX was published with the Journal for the Study of Antisemitism in an article entitled, "Traditional Catholicism and the Teachings of Bishop Williamson". I spent the next few years after my 2010 article blogging about this topic and informing high level SSPX associates of the ongoing problem with radicals in the SSPX. While I was always told the right things like, 'The SSPX is trying to get rid of the...

    Archer Shurtliff and Jordan April, both 17, felt “weird” when in February they received an assignment asking students to argue for the extermination of Jewish people. The words “TOP SECRET” were stamped across the top in red. The “memorandum,” first posted online and addressed to senior Nazi party members, asked students to put themselves in the shoes of Adolf Hitler’s top aides. Archer and Jordan, who are not Jewish, wondered if they understood the assignment correctly. Did their teacher, Michael DeNobile, really mean for his students to argue in favor of the “Final Solution,” the Nazis’ justification for genocide? During...

    Acclaimed Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko, whose work focused on war atrocities and denounced anti-Semitism and tyrannical dictators, has died. He was 84... Yevtushenko gained notoriety in the former Soviet Union while in his 20s, with poetry denouncing Josef Stalin. He gained international acclaim as a young revolutionary with "Babi Yar," the unflinching 1961 poem that told of the slaughter of nearly 34,000 Jews by the Nazis and denounced the anti-Semitism that had spread throughout the Soviet Union... Until "Babi Yar" was published, the history of the massacre was shrouded in the fog of the Cold War...

    If a senior US senator can so quickly become the target of a widespread campaign of anti-Semitism from both the Right and the Left, we should all increase our vigilance. The social media site Twitter offers an extraordinary form of communication. But perhaps because of its scope and anonymity, it is also a hotbed of racism, bigotry and anti-Semitism. This has never been clearer than in the wake of Senator Chuck Schumer’s announcement that he will oppose President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. In doing so, Schumer became guilty of heresy in the eyes of many on the progressive...

    A decisive majority of Congress Democrats signed a letter requiring the White House to reaffirm that US policy in the Middle East is based on support for the “two-state solution” between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. One hundred and eighty-seven of the 193 Democratic House members signed the letter sent to President Donald Trump on Friday. The letter was sent on the eve of the AIPAC conference, and was signed by two Republican congressmen. The letter was conceived by Jewish left-wing group J Street, co-sponsored by Congressmen David Price of North Carolina and Jerry Connolly of Virginia. …

    A Muslim officer who was fired by the North Chicago Police Department last month is suing for religious discrimination, claiming he was fired after complaining about harassment. “I risked my life so someone could sleep better. And this is not right. This is not right what they did to me,” said Ramtin Sabet. Sabet started working for the North Chicago police in 2007, and the Iranian born officer said the harassment started a few years later.

    Larger Muslim community wants apology from mosque and wonders why controversial imam was invited to preach A Montreal mosque is facing a police complaint and rebukes from the larger Muslim community after a video of an imam delivering a sermon in which he asks for Jews to be killed surfaced online. The sermon took place at the Dar Al-Arqam Mosque in the city's Saint-Michel neighbourhood on Dec. 23, 2016. The video was posted to the mosque's YouTube channel three days later. The imam in the video is Jordanian cleric Sheikh Muhammad bin Musa Al Nasr — he was reportedly an...

    WASHINGTON — The Israeli police on Thursday arrested a man believed to be responsible for scores of bomb threats that were phoned in to Jewish community centers across the United States, American officials said. The F.B.I. confirmed in a statement that the bureau had worked with the Israeli national police to arrest the teenager, who, officials said, holds citizenship in both Israel and the United States. “Investigating hate crimes is a top priority for the F.B.I., and we will continue to work to make sure all races and religions feel safe in their communities and in their places of worship,”...

    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...
