    Hillary Clinton is privately signaling to wealthy Jewish donors that — no matter the result of the Iranian nuclear negotiations — she will be a better friend to Israel than President Barack Obama. But, even as donors increasingly push Clinton on the subject in private, they have emerged with sometimes widely varying interpretations about whether she would support a prospective deal, according to interviews with more than 10 influential donors and fundraising operatives. Clinton’s private responses in some ways resemble a foreign policy Rorschach test; donors who see a deal as important to world peace have come away thinking that...

    American Thinker ^ | Peggy Shapiro
    On June 30, 2015, the General Synod of the United Church of Christ voted to single out Israel for an economic and propaganda war. Ignoring the violent state of affairs in an unstable region, the plague of terrorist groups, and the victimization of millions of Christians and other minority groups, the UCC elected to boycott Israel, the only functioning democracy in the Middle East. Giving a pass to Hamas rockets aimed at Israeli children and the prohibition of any Jews to enter Palestinian-controlled territory, the UCC jumped on the bandwagon of slander to demonize Israel. Deletion and Replacement of Jews...

    A document released in late May by pro-Muslim Brotherhood clerics incited the Egyptian population to “strive for the complete elimination” of their current government, according to a new report. Calling the military-backed government a “criminal and murderous regime,” the radical clerics said public figures associated with it should be put to death, in accordance with Sharia law. The document also demands the release of Morsi, who it refers to as the “legitimate elected president.” […] “According to the Sharia, it is the duty of the ummah—its leaders and its people—to oppose this regime and strive for its complete elimination by...

    Anti-Semitic incidents in Canada skyrocketed over the last year and have now hit the highest levels “ever recorded” by human rights groups tracking the number of anti-Jewish episodes, according to a new study. Canadians across the country reported experiencing more anti-Semitism than in the past four years, with anti-Semitic incidents having risen a total of 28 percent from 2013 to 2014, according to the global Jewish advocacy group B’nai B’rith International (BBI). This made 2014 the “worst year” for anti-Semitism since advocacy groups began tracking incidents in 1982. The majority of those who reported an instance of anti-Semitism faced harassment,...

    Anti-Semitic propaganda had a life-long effect on German children schooled during the Nazi period, leaving them far more likely to harbor negative views of Jews than those born earlier and later, according to a study published Monday. The findings indicate that attempts to influence public attitudes are most effective when they target young people, particularly if the message confirms existing beliefs, the authors said. Researchers from the United States and Switzerland examined surveys conducted in 1996 and 2006 that asked respondents about a range of issues, including their opinions of Jews. The polls, known as the German General Social Survey,...

The latter figure includes physical assaults on Jews, as well as vandalistic attacks on synagogues and Jewish cemeteries, in addition to incitement at protests. According to Paz, the German anti-Semites have found a way to cover their hatred of Jews in an increasingly internationally acceptable camouflage of antagonism against...

But there is a silent boycott of the Jewish State which is more insidious, latent and even more dangerous because it undermines Israel’s cultural superiority and cuts Israel’s link with the rest of the world. In 2002, the year of the beginning of the academic campaign against Israel, Paul Zinger, the head of the Scientific Association of Israel, revealed that more than seven thousand scientific research projects are sent from Israel abroad every year.

The preacher, Sheikh Khaled al-Mughrabi, who teaches religious classes on the mount and is an employee of the Waqf Temple Mount oversight organization, was accused of being an anti-Semite for the comments he made to his congregants. Palestinian Media Watch translated a lecture that had been published online, in which Mughrabi accused Jews of the age-old European anti-Semitic claim of slaughtering gentile children and draining their blood for use in Passover matzot....

    President Obama and his administration continue to support the global Islamist militant group known the Muslim Brotherhood. A White House strategy document regards the group as a moderate alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State. The policy of backing the Muslim Brotherhood is outlined in a secret directive called Presidential Study Directive-11, or PSD-11. The directive was produced in 2011 and outlines administration support for political reform in the Middle East and North Africa, according to officials familiar with the classified study.

However, he noted that the US has room to improve in all of these categories, remarking, "we could end anti-Semitism in two minutes." "Anti-Semitism should be illegal...

Writing about Nazi anti-Semitism ruffles no feathers within academia and other elite circles. Mr. Wistrich, however, had been warning that “anti-Semitism has undergone a process of growing ‘Islamicization,’ linked to the terrorist holy war against Jews and other non-Muslims with its truly lethal consequences.” This “new” anti-Semitism,” he added, targetsIsrael, the only state with a Jewish majority: “the collective Jew.” “New” is a relative term: It was 40 years...

    The recent string of attacks against Jews in Europe has driven many Jews away from an active Jewish life, said the president of one of Europe’s leading Orthodox Jewish networks on Tuesday. “We’re dealing with a large number of Jews who because of the risk involved, and terrorist attacks, have stopped coming to Jewish events,” Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt told the Algemeiner. “It’s more important [for these Jews] to stay alive than to stay Jewish.” The 51-year-old Swiss-born Conference of European Rabbis (CER) president, who is also Chief Rabbi of Moscow, said apathy was a greater risk to the Jews in...
  • The Identity of the Dragon...The Serpent of Old...Rev 12 pt 5

    And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.(Revelation 12:3-4)The vision of Revelation 12 corresponds to the account of the fall of man in Genesis 3. What do we have in Genesis 3? A Woman,a Serpent and the promise of the...

    Blogger, author and activist Pamela Geller told Sean Hannity last night that the FBI has not contacted her despite the fact that ISIS called her out by name for execution.On Tuesday ISIS released this threat: The attack by the Islamic State in America is only the beginning of our efforts to establish a wiliyah in the heart of our enemy. Our aim was the khanzeer Pamela Geller and to show her that we donÂ’t care what land she hides in or what sky shields her; we will send all our Lions to achieve her slaughter. This will heal the hearts...

    Hey Fox News: Like Muhammad, ISIS Calls Jewess Pamela Geller “Khanzeer” (Pig), and Threatens To “Slaughter Her” “From Muhammad, via the Koran, across space and time, as promulgated today by Sunni Islam’s 1000-year old leading teaching institution, Al-Azhar, and ISIS, alike, Jews as apes/pigs is a “sacralized” theme repeated to incite their slaughter en masse, or as individuals, such as Pamela Geller. Would that Fox News’s morally and factually bereft “pundits” understood this hideous reality.” Yesterday (5/5/15) I blogged about how both CNN and Fox News (excepting Sean Hannity, entirely, and to some extent, Megyn Kelly) have chastised journalist/writer, and...

    This is not what the world considers hate speech. What the world considers hate speech is opposing this.“Egyptian Cleric Saad Abu Aziz: Jews Are a Malignant Tumor That Must Be Eradicated,” MEMRI, April 24, 2015 (thanks to Pamela Geller): In an April 24 Friday sermon, which he posted on the Internet, Egyptian cleric Saad Yusuf Abu Aziz declared that the Jews are “a malignant tumor” as demonstrated by their “dark history.” The sermon was delivered in Al-Zawiya Al-Gharbiya Mosque in Ghamrin, in Monufia governorate.

    The United Nations (UN) will be “reviewing” the book selection at its official bookstore at the Palais des Nations, UN Watch noted Thursday, after protest was raised over several books unequivocally attacking Israel and Jews. Notable titles on display included such seminal works as How I Stopped Being a Jew, Israel’s War Against the Palestinians, and The Punishment of Gaza.UNWatch’s Hillel Neuer wrote to the UN over the issue, noting that no other books in the store targeted any other country for ridicule. …

    A British Muslim politician is on the receiving end of things after she told her social media followers that she would never support Labour leader Ed Miliband because he is “a Jew.” A few years ago, something like this quite simply could not have happened. That was back when anti-Semites understood that society didn’t want to have anything to do with them. So what did they do? They hid, pretending they were open-minded and tolerant. In the last couple of years, however, everything has changed — in Europe, at least. Now, European anti-Semites — most of them Muslim immigrants or...

    On Thursday, the State of Israel is celebrating her 67th birthday. Naturally, pro-Israel college students nationwide have organized celebratory gatherings – ranging from guest speakers to culturally (read: food) oriented events.On Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s campus, the planned celebration was not without controversy and dissent.On April 20th, the student group Palestine@MIT issued an “open letter” decrying an Israel Independence Day celebration scheduled to take place during SpringFest. Palestine@MIT went as far as to claim that the event makes them feel “unsafe.” The Israeli Independence Day raises politically sensitive questions given that it just so happens to represent the 1948 Palestinian...

    Above photo: tweet from Muslim students at my talk making the Islamic State salute in solidarity with savages. It speaks volumes that a talk on “Free Speech” on an American college campus requires scores of police and plainclothes cops. This video is on one of Muslim’s students twitter feeds crowing about attacking one of the attendees who support our work. I spoke tonight at Brooklyn College, if you can still call it that. Every seat was filled — 80% by Muslim students. If this is the future, it is murder. The sneers, the jeers, the laughter — my discussion of...

    This week in two meetings with prominent American Jews, President Barack Obama threw down the gauntlet. Either the Jews of America will rise to the challenge or they will allow Obama to marginalize them. It is their choice, and now is the time for them to decide. In the first meeting, Obama met with centrist Jewish leaders from major Jewish organizations like the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations, the Anti-Defamation League and AIPAC. Major donors to these groups, like to almost every other major Jewish organization in America, are largely Democrats. According to The Washington Post, the purpose...
