    The EU foreign policy chief says Europe does “not see eye to eye” with the Trump administration on major issues such as trade, climate change and funding of U.N. agencies, but can “easily” work with the U.S. on Syria and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Federica Mogherini spoke Saturday during a regional gathering of the World Economic Forum. Mogherini warned that threatened U.S. cuts in funding U.N. agencies “would create a major security issue worldwide, including in Europe.” …

    A prophesy appearing to call for the murder of Jews repeated during a sermon at a Copenhagen mosque has caused outrage in Denmark after it was released online. Mundhir Abdallah was reported to police after being filmed repeating in Arabic an anti-Semitic hadith- a teaching of Muhammad. The verse says “Judgment Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them.” He declares a “caliphate” is coming – that is a state governed in accordance with Islamic Sharia law. It will be part of a jihad to unite the Muslim community and liberate the al-Aqsa mosque in...

    The Jewish Community in Denmark will contact police about an imam at a mosque in Copenhagen’s Nřrrebro neighborhood who encouraged attacks on Jews during a Friday service, reports newspaper Kristeligt Dagblad. The complaint will be based on a video recording of a Friday service at the Masjid al-Faruq mosque in Nřrrebro on March 31st this year. The recording was translated from Arabic to English by American institute MEMRI. According to the translation, imam Mundhir Abdallah quotes a hadith — a report of a speech by the Prophet Mohammed used in Islamic scripture — which incites violence against Jews. “‘Judgment Day...

    Ahead of German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier’s visit to Israel on Saturday, a German government study revealed that nearly 33 million Germans, 40% of the population of 82 million, are infected with contemporary antisemitism — hatred of the Jewish state. The report, which was published on April 24, details in a section titled “Agreement to Israel-related antisemitism” that 40% of Germans who were polled showed approval for the following statement: “Based on Israel’s policies, I can understand people having something against the Jews.” The federal government’s antisemitism report found that the proportion of Germans who agreed with the antisemitic statement increased...
  • WHITEWASHING LEFTIST ANTI-SEMITISM: The Washington Post's peculiar "exposé" on campus Jew-hatred.

    Since his inauguration, elements within the leftist mainstream media have tried to advance the mendacious and pernicious narrative that Trump and his so-called populist policies are the driving force behind xenophobic hate crimes. Despite their best efforts to derail, defame and tarnish the administration, the scheme nosedived badly. First, they focused their attention on the “surge” of “Islamophobic hate crimes.” But many of these so-called hate crimes, which involved young, hijab-wearing “victims,” turned out to be nothing more than victim-orchestrated hoaxes that expended valuable police time. Retractions and corrections, to the extent that they were actually issued, were generally buried...

    So, Donald Trump delivers a speech in honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day, and the anti-Semites are up in arms. He is not the man they thought he was. In reality, he never was that man, which was more a projection of their own ideology than a right assessment of his. As Sam Kestenbaum reported on the Jewish Forward, “Trump Gives A Holocaust Speech — And The ‘Alt Right’ Screams ‘Betrayal’.” How, exactly, did Trump betray the “alt-right”?In his speech, he said, “The State of Israel is an eternal monument to the undying strength of the Jewish people. The fervent...

    Shortened title. Full title: NYC Democratic City Council Candidate Runs Hate Campaign, Cites ‘Ethnic Cleansing, Greedy Jewish Landlords’ While the United States has been observing a week devoted to marking the loss of millions of Jews and other nationals during the Nazi Holocaust in World War II, a Democratic candidate for the New York City Council is campaigning on a message of anti-Semitism and hate. In the most recent video footage uploaded by Thomas Lopez-Pierre, his campaign message on YouTube blames “greedy Jewish landlords” and “Donald Trump” for the problems in the seventh district on the upper West Side of...

    On February 15 two 17-year-old central NY high school students—Jordan April and Archer Shurtliff—raised objections to a homework assignment in which they were required to either oppose or defend the extermination of Jews. Their teacher, Oswego County High School teacher Michael DeNobile, asked them to write an internal memorandum within the highest ranking offices of the Nazi party in regards to your support or opposition to the Final Solution of the Jewish Question.” Presumably the goal was to teach the students critical thinking, thereby promoting one of the Common Core’s desired skills.*** At first Jordan and Archer got the run...

    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...

    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...

    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...

More than 100 students attended the senate debate prior to the vote, according to the Tufts Daily student newspaper.

    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...
