    Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban accused George Soros, the Jewish billionaire philanthropist who survived Nazi persecution, of fomenting anti-Semitism by helping immigrants come to Europe, MTI state news service reported. Soros and his Open Society Foundations, which funds dozens of NGOs in Hungary, “bear responsibility for the increase in anti-Semitism in Europe,” Orban said in a letter to Ronald S. Lauder, the president of the World Jewish Congress, MTI reported Friday. Soros, 87, who eventually emigrated to the U.S. after World War II, said last year that Orban used Nazi-era propaganda methods to try to discredit him in a national...

    Bowing to criticism from Tamika Mallory, the radical Women's March organizer who's in deep with Louis Farrakhan, Starbucks has quietly dropped the Anti-Defamation League from its roster of groups that are supposed to come in and deliver to all its supposedly racist employees their "sensitivity training."
  • Chris Cuomo Tells Netanyahu: Israel Needs to “Come Clean” and be “Honest” about its Nukes

    If Chris Cuomo had been around during WWII, would he have been telling FDR and Churchill that they needed to disclose their D-Day plans? Maybe so, judging by Cuomo’s absurd questioning of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu on CNN this morning. Cuomo suggested to Netanyahu that Israel needs to “come clean” and be “honest” about its nuclear weapons capabilities if it expects Iran to do the same. [snip] But the bigger point is that Israel is effectively at war with Iran and other countries in the Middle East. It is a tiny nation surrounded by hostile powers. Why would Israel, why...

    German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier asked Shiite Muslims representatives on Monday how they were handling growing anti-Semitism in Germany. In a meeting with leaders from the Islamic Association of Shiite Congregations in Germany (IGS) at the Bellevue Palace in Berlin, Steinmeier expressed his concerns over rising hostility toward Jews from all aspects of society, including Muslims. “Anti-Semitism in Germany isn’t primarily a Muslim problem, but it is also seen more strongly among Muslims,” the president said, according to those present at the meeting. His statement was part of a broader conversation focused on concerns over rising anti-Semitism in Germany and to...

    To be able to reach a peaceful solution, the forced migration of Jews from Arab countries must be acknowledged as one of the tragedies of this long and painful conflict. One of the major recognized causes of the current wave of antisemitism in Europe and other places is Palestinian propaganda. This sweeping brainwashing effort has succeeded in producing an anti-Jewish climate in many parts of the world. One of the ways to combat this basic source of lies is to reveal the truth about the banishment of the Jews from Arab countries. The world has mainly heard about the injustice...

    Denmark’s ruling Liberal Party has come out against a ban on the circumcision of young boys, meaning the controversial citizen’s proposal is unlikely to make it through parliament. “It has been difficult today, and if we had taken the easy route, we would have said ‘yes’ to a ban,” the party’s group chairman, Søren Gade, told the Berlingske newspaper after a long-drawn out meeting of party MPs to discuss the issue on Tuesday. Jakob Ellemann-Jensen, the party’s political spokesman, told the paper that views had been split across the party. “Many have veered both for and against. There are really...

    The recent attack on two men wearing kippas in Berlin has alarmed the Central Jewish Council. On Tuesday its President, Josef Schuster, advised Germany’s Jews against wearing kippas in cities like Berlin or Munich. […] Jewish people living in Germany’s major cities should “wear a baseball cap or something else”, rather than the traditional Jewish head covering, Schuster suggested. Schuster warned that if open anti-Semitism is not countered, then democracy in Germany is in danger. “It is not just anti-Semitism; it is also racism and xenophobia. This requires a clear stop sign,” he said. Despite this warning, Schuster said in...

    "The fact that no kindergarten, no school, no synagogue can be left without police protection dismays us." MAINZ, Germany — German Chancellor Angela Merkel has denounced a "different type of anti-Semitism" that has taken root in her country.

"But unfortunately, anti-Semitism existed before this." Related Germany grapples with integration after opening its borders Merkel said...

    More than 300 French dignitaries and stars have signed a manifesto denouncing a “new anti-Semitism” marked by “Islamist radicalization” after a string of killings of Jews, to be published in Le Figaro newspaper Sunday. The country’s half-a-million-plus Jewish community is the largest in Europe, but has been hit by a wave of emigration to Israel in the past two decades, partly due to the emergence of virulent anti-Semitism in predominantly immigrant neighborhoods. “We demand that the fight against this democratic failure that is anti-Semitism becomes a national cause before it’s too late.

    Women’s March co-chair Tamika Mallory called on her followers to boycott Starbucks Tuesday night after the coffee chain announced it would partner with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to develop anti-bias training for employees. Mallory, who has been roundly criticized for her ties to notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, accused the ADL, a Jewish advocacy group, of “attacking black and brown people.” She further demanded that Starbucks discontinue its partnership with the group, which was initiated after Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson mandated “racial bias” training for all employees in response to a rash of public criticism over the arrest of two black men in...

    The photo, taken in 1935, depicts a woman in a dark dress shuffling down a street in Norden, Germany. A large sign hangs from her neck: “I am a German girl and allowed myself to be defiled by a Jew.” She is surrounded by Nazi stormtroopers. D.C. Council member Trayon White Sr. (D-Ward 8) studied the image. “Are they protecting her?” Lynn Williams, an expert on educational programs at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and White’s tour guide for the day, stared at the photo. “No,” she said. “They’re marching her through.” “Marching through is protecting,” White said. “I think...

Dozens of members of Congress have already signed on to an effort to force the release of this State Department publication, which sources say was originally classified by the Obama administration in...
