    Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders has tapped several critics of Israel to advise him on foreign policy, including one who has compared Israelis to “Nazis” and accused them of waging “a Holocaust.” Sanders, who is Jewish and had family members slaughtered during the Holocaust, recently disclosed that his top foreign policy advisers include J Street, a dovish Middle East advocacy group that backs some of Congress’ most vocal critics of Israel, former assistant Secretary of Defense Larry Korb, and James Zogby, an Israel detractor who heads the Arab American Institute. The inclusion of these advisers in the Sanders’ campaign, which...

    Today, he believes Germany is doomed. "People there don't get married, and if they do they have one child," he says. "But the Turks and the other foreigners have many children. So it is a question of time that Germany will no longer be German." Why does he think this has happened? "I think it is a punishment for the Holocaust," he says, matter-of-factly. "Germany will leave the stage of history, no doubt about it." But the Jews, by contrast, will never die. This is a neat irony of history that he loves. "All the great cultures have left the...

    snip In other words, no one in the West Bank knows how the next leader will emerge — “and Israeli intelligence officials, whose entire job is to predict such things, have no idea either,” says Gal Berger, Israel Radio’s indispensable Palestinian affairs correspondent. When the time comes, the Fatah men who in the last few weeks started jockeying for position will duke it out for real. Such chaotic political fighting often leads to violence. Once that violence ebbs, a new strongman will emerge. But not a peaceful, democratic state of Palestine. This week, the UN’s Ban Ki-moon said Palestinian terrorism...

The map was an illustration accompanying the article "What Are You Afraid Of In 2016? Globetrotters Share Their Fears." The article referenced travelers' fears of Islamic radicalization and extremism in the region. Immediately following the publication, the website's comment section was flooded with criticism from readers and journalists who questioned the online publication's decision to use an illustration of this nature.

    OTTAWA - Canada's new Liberal government said on Monday it was delivering a "tough message" to Israel as a good friend after expressing concern about Israeli-Palestinian violence, Israeli settlements and unilateral Palestinian moves. The statement came a day after Foreign Minister Stephane Dion was criticized for saying Palestinian initiatives toward statehood in international forums and continued Israeli settlements were unhelpful. "We're steadfast allies and good friends, and good friends can occasionally deliver tough messages, but it's by no means to suggest that we're somehow retreating from any kind of support of Israel," said Joe Pickerill, Dion's spokesman.

"The UN Secretary-General's words give encouragement to terror," Netanyahu fired in response. Another aspect of the speech, which was held at a Tuesday UN Security Council Session devoted to "the Situation in the Middle East," is the proportion devoted to the Israeli-Palestinian issue, as opposed to other conflicts that are ongoing – most markedly, the one in Syria. Over 55,000 people were killed in the Syrian civil war in 2015 alone, according to the Syrian...

Instead, the Liberal leader offered "tribute to the memory of the millions of victims murdered during the Holocaust," adding that Canada honors "those who survived atrocities at the hands of the Nazi regime, and welcome their courageous stories of hope and perseverance." ...

    We’ve all heard the phrase “the banality of evil.” Some of us even know which political theorist to attribute it to, and among those, a few have even read it in context. Hannah Arendt most memorably employed it in both the subtitle and closing words of Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil, her book on the trial of Nazi lieutenant-colonel Adolf Eichmann. To Arendt’s mind, Eichmann willingly did his part to organize the Holocaust — and an instrumental part it was — out of neither anti-semitism nor pure malice, but out of a non-ideological, entirely more...

The whole world was sympathetic when the suffering of the Jews under the Nazis was revealed after World War II, the Secretary said. Their status as unadulterated victims won them virtually universal respect and empathy. The Jews in Israel are endangering that universal respect and empathy by outgunning their attackers.

    The titular leader of the Palestinian Arab community in the previous generation, Haj Amin Al Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem, forged a pact with Adolf Hitler on November 28, 1941, one week before the Wannasee conference, originally scheduled for December 7, 1941, yet was postponed by one month, due to the attack on Pearl Harbor on that very day. The protocols of the Hitler-Mufti pact that were presented as evidence against the Mufti in the Nuremberg war crimes trials explicitly state that Hitler would exterminate the Jews in Europe, while the Mufti would enlist Nazi aid to exterminate Jews in...

    Benjamin Netanyahu: Palestinian Mufti Gave Hitler Idea to Exterminate Jews by Cassandra Vinograd, Yael Factor and Reuters Israel's prime minister suggested that a Palestinian gave Adolf Hitler the idea to exterminate Jews in the Holocaust, drawing rebukes from historians and politicians. In a speech to Jewish leaders on Tuesday, Benjamin Netanyahu that the Mufti of Jerusalem in the World War II era Haj Amin al-Husseini had a "central role" in inspiring Hitler's Final Solution to make Jews extinct. "He flew to Berlin. Hitler didn't want to exterminate the Jews at the time, he wanted to expel the Jews,"...

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sparked public uproar when on Wednesday he claimed that the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, was the one who planted the idea of the extermination of European Jewry in Adolf Hitler's mind. The Nazi ruler, Netanyahu said, had no intention of killing the Jews, but only to expel them. In a speech before the World Zionist Congress in Jerusalem, Netanyahu described a meeting between Husseini and Hitler in November, 1941: "Hitler didn't want to exterminate the Jews at the time, he wanted to expel the Jew. And Haj Amin al-Husseini went to Hitler and said,...

    This week, 2016 Republican presidential contender Dr. Ben Carson bore the brunt of the media's ire for his politically incorrect take on the evils of gun control. "Through a combination of removing guns and disseminating propaganda, the Nazis were able to carry out their evil intentions with relatively little resistance," Carson writes in his new book, "A Perfect Union." Leftists, including the activists of the Anti-Defamation League, promptly condemned Carson. National Director Jonathan Greenblatt explained, "the notion that Hitler's gun-control policy contributed to the Holocaust is historically inaccurate." Nick Baumann of The Huffington Post wrote, "There was some armed Jewish...

    The man certainly does know his way around a Hitler hypothetical. Just ask his own campaign manager. “It’s an example [Carson] has been using for years and to be honest with you he needs to find a better example because the problem is as soon as you say Hitler, nobody hears anything else you say,” Campaign Manager Barry Bennett told ABC News. “Its just so evil, so contemptible, that no one can hear anything else.” Believe it or not, that comment was in reference not to what Carson said yesterday on CNN about gun control in the Third Reich...

    How about the next time the mainstream media decide to fabricate a controversy against a conservative presidential candidate, they choose something less laughable? The media's latest faux gasp concerns Dr. Ben Carson's comments about the Oregon school shooting. When I first watched news reports on it, I didn't immediately grasp the reason for the fuss, not having the artificial sensibilities of the MSM. Asked what he would do in a similar situation as the victims, Carson said: "I would ask everybody to attack the gunman because he can only shoot one of us at a time. That way, we don't...

    Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson defended his controversial remarks this morning in which he suggested that 6 million Jews would not have been slaughtered if they had easy access to guns. I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed, Carson said on CNN Thursday. Im telling you there is a reason these dictatorial people take guns first." The Anti-Defamation League condemned the comments, saying in a statement: Ben Carson has a right to his views on gun control, but the notion that Hitlers gun-control policy...

    Jewish groups and Holocaust scholars say Ben Carsons claims that Nazi gun control laws contributed to the Holocaust are offensive and inaccurate, but Carson is not backing down. . The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which was founded to combat anti-Semitism and other forms of prejudice, derided Carsons theory which he first raised in his new book A Perfect Union as historically inaccurate. . But the ADL wasnt the only major organization to weigh in: The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum also took issue with Carsons decision to inject his claims into Americas gun debate.

    Dr. Ben Carson recently asserted that if guns had not been confiscated from Jews then Hitler would have had more trouble orchestrating the Holocaust. Jonathan Greenblatt, National Director of the Anti-Defamation Leauge, quickly objected, stating that there were few firearms available to Jews in Germany in 1938 and that surrendering them did not measurably contribute to the totalitarian power of the Nazi German state.   Ben Carson is right, and Jonathan Greenblatt is wrong. For the record, I have hosted a fundraiser for Dr. Carson, but I was also born a Jew and have studied the Holocaust.  And I have spoken...
