    Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday accused right-wing Israelis of deliberately thwarting efforts to broker a peace deal with the Palestinians. In unusually stark terms, Mr. Kerry warned that the building of Israeli settlements was undermining any hope of an agreement to allow two states to live side by side.

    After a minute of silence in honor of Fidel Castro, United Nations member-states on Tuesday turned to the regular General Assembly agenda item entitled “the question of Palestine,” in preparation for votes on several resolutions condemning Israel. “I’m deeply saddened by the passing of Fidel Castro,” began the president of the General Assembly, Peter Thomson of Fiji. He described the Cuban dictator as “one of the iconic leaders of the 20th century, with a great love for his homeland and the Cuban people, he dedicated his life to their welfare and development.” […] On a day when the U.N. marks...

December 1, 2016 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. After years of studiously ignoring it, dismissing it, whitewashing it, excusing it and even justifying it, progressives have rediscovered anti-Semitism.

    It appears former president Jimmy Carter, now 92 years old, has yet to meet a tyrant he doesn’t admire. His continuing embrace of terrorist regimes makes some wonder when we will see the cessation of his continual self-exhumations from political burial in order to once again resume his prophetic declamations on behalf of odious regimes, past and present. Carter’s latest declamation on the demise of the pitiless tyrant Fidel Castro reveals once again his lifelong empathy for totalitarian regimes: “Rosalynn and I share our sympathies with the Castro family and the Cuban people on the death of Fidel Castro.

    ADL: Defender of Anti-Semitism Important Ally in Fight Against Anti-Semitism Another reminder that the ADL is a partisan left-wing group that is more than happy to whitewash anti-Semitism from the left. The ADL's left-wing boss, Jonathan Greenblatt, called Keith Ellison, who wants to head the DNC, “an important ally in the fight against anti-Semitism”. That's funny because Ellison's history suggests that he plays for the other side in the fight. As Jeff Ballabon lays out at length.  Keith Ellison and I were then both 31 years old. He was on record as defending Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism since at least 1989, under the alias...

It is possible to claim that Jews control the media and conspire to twist the international financial system to their own benefit, to say that Jews are responsible for black slavery and today’s...

The media is cheering this development even though USCMO has a history that makes the KKK look downright sunny.

    France published an official notification Thursday urging businesses to use labels to identify goods produced in the Israeli settlements, prompting a swift condemnation from Israel. It was not immediately clear whether the notice published in the French Official Journal is binding for retailers or a recommendation. A press official with the trade ministry said late Thursday she was not aware of the notification and couldn’t immediately say whether it was mandatory or advisory. In Nov. 2015, the European Union recommended that its member states put special labels on exports from the West Bank, but said the technical guidelines on the...

    Last week, a series of incidents involving antisemitic graffiti made headlines in Canada, with many pundits attempting to tie them to the U.S. election of Donald Trump and the apparent rise of right-wing extremist elements in the United States. Armchair activists have been weighing in, blaming Trump as well as his appointment of his chief strategist, Steve Bannon, claiming that the President-elect is fostering an attitude of intolerance and antisemitism and suggesting that he is triggering a dramatic surge in hate incidents against the Canadian Jewish community. It’s a very neat causal chain. The problem is, it’s just not true....

Ellison, D-Minn., is a leading contender for the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee, despite a record of tough criticism of Israel that pro-Israel insiders say would easily have disqualified him a decade ago. A supporter of the two-state solution and a frequent visitor to Israel, he also voted against additional funding for Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system in 2014. In 2009, Ellison spear-headed a letter from 54 Democrats to Presdient Obama urging him to...

    Two brothers, aged 19 and 23, wearing prayer shawls and kipot were walking home on Yom Kippur afternoon from the Flatbush Park Jewish Center in Brooklyn when there were attacked by three men yelling anti-Semitic slurs, it was reported by American media. The brothers, Dani and Eli Zainback, were set upon by three men in their twenties who called the fasting siblings taking a break between Orthodox prayer services, “F---ing Jews,” according to the New York Daily News. The older of the brothers, Eli, replied, “It’s our holiday” and then touched one of the assailants, who punched him in the...

    Full Title: The United Nations Is Run By A Bunch Of Depraved Totalitarians, Villainous Barbarians, And Anti-Semitic Scum The United Nations (UNESCO, to be specific) recently adopted an anti-Israel resolution that disregarded the Jewish connection to the faith’s two holiest sites, the Temple Mount and Western Wall. The motion was supported by 24 nations, including Russia and China. Only six countries opposed it. Now, the UN is too impotent to make history, much less redraft it. Still, it’s never a waste of time to remind people of its long record of empowering cheerleaders and perpetrators of violence against Jews. It’s...

    The United States on Friday criticized Israeli policies in Judea and Samaria during a UN Security Council discussion on the issue. The meeting, titled "Illegal Israeli Settlements: Obstacles to Peace and the Two-State Solution," was informal and did not involve a vote. It was held at the initiative of Egypt, Venezuela, Malaysia, Senegal and Angola. The U.S. representative to the session, Deputy U.S. Ambassador to the UN David Pressman, said Washington is "deeply concerned and strongly opposes settlements which are corrosive to peace," according to Haaretz. Pressman added that Israeli activities in Judea and Samaria, primarily construction of new communities,...

    Pressure is growing on the Labour party to suspend a key Corbyn ally after she criticised Holocaust Memorial Day. Jackie Walker, vice chairwoman of the Corbyn-supporting Momentum campaign group, generated outrage for the comments and also said she hadn't found a definition of anti-Semitism she could 'work with'. Labour MPs demanded she be 'shown the door never to return'. Ms Walker was allowed to return to the party earlier this year after claiming that 'many Jews' were chief financiers of the slave trade. Meanwhile Mr Corbyn risked stoking more controversy after it was reported that he is set to appoint...

    The rooms where ruddy-faced Chinese men and women once assembled to pray in Hebrew and Mandarin are silent. Signs and exhibits that celebrated centuries of Jewish life have disappeared. An ancient well, believed to be the last visible remnant of a long-demolished synagogue, was recently buried under concrete and a pile of earth.. After locking down Buddhist monasteries in Tibet and tearing down church crosses in eastern China, President Xi Jinping’s campaign against unapproved religion and foreign influence has turned to an unlikely adversary: a small group of Jews whose ancestors settled in this now faded imperial city near the...

    University of California, Berkeley administrators on Monday reinstated a Palestinian history class amid an outcry over its suspension last week. The school’s social science dean announced in letter to faculty that the ethnic studies class was reinstated after the teacher revised the course description. Social science dean Carla Hesse suspended “Palestine: A Colonial Settler Analysis” after receiving a complaint from Jewish and civil rights groups that the course syllabus appeared to describe a politically motivated, anti-Semitic class. Hesse suspended the class, saying it wasn’t properly vetted to ensure it wasn’t espousing a single political viewpoint. The suspension triggered protests from...

    We’ve reported on the movement on college campuses to apply boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against entities that invest in the state of Israel. As well, we’ve shown the anti-Semitism in this campaign. Now, a former intern of our sister organization, Accuracy in Media, has connected the dots and shows that you are paying for the BDS campaign in federal taxes. "In October 2014, more than $3.3 million of federal grant money was awarded to Middle East 'National Resource Centers' (NRCs) at 16 universities throughout our nation under a statute called Title VI of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA),"...

    Over at The Tower, San Diego State University student Anthony Berteaux describes the experience of two Jewish undergraduates who attended the University of California's Students of Color Conference—a self-branded "safe space"—only to be met with overpowering anti-Semitism. The conference, Berteaux writes, turned out to be a breeding ground for anti-Israel rhetoric, where progressive activists devoted to fighting discrimination "whitewashed" the history of the Jewish people with "no mention of the Holocaust" and made claims that "the state of Israel pays Jews to move to Israel to join the army and kill Palestinians." "I was made to feel uncomfortable and unwanted...

    The Labour party has suspended a prominent donor for likening Jeremy Corbyn’s team to Nazi stormtroopers. Michael Foster, a former celebrity agent who has donated more than £400,000 to the party, said the Labour leader and his team had “no respect for others and worse, no respect for the rule of law”. His comments were published in an article in the Mail on Sunday, titled: “‘Why I despise Jeremy Corbyn and his Nazi stormtroopers’, by Jewish Labour donor Michael Foster.” The piece appeared on 14 August, a month after the high court ruled against Foster’s attempt to stop Corbyn from...
