    What is the sound of America cringing? Larry David now knows. And, it’s not pretty. This last Saturday night, comedian Larry David was the guest host on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” Let’s get clear on something: over the past month, SNL has had two Jewish hosts. That might be unprecedented. Yet, while Israeli superstar Gal Gadot filled the Jews with pride, especially with her Hebrew shout-out, Larry David successfully pushed every Jewish button. First: Larry told us how embarrassed he is, as a Jew, that so many of the men who have been accused of sexual harassment happen to be...

    New Haven Register ^ | Thursday, November 2, 2017 | Pam McLoughlin
    Arnie Pritchard of New Haven and his two brothers knew in a general way growing up that their mother, Marion Pritchard, had sheltered Jews in the Netherlands during the Holocaust. But it wasn’t until 1981 when they were well into adulthood that they learned the details and scope of her heroism when their mother received the Righteous Among the Nations award from Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust memorial. It would turn out that while in her early 20s in Holland, Marion Pritchard risked her life many times over by assisting in saving some 150 Jews, mostly children, killing a man with...

    On October 23, 1943, the next train with the Jews – about 1,700 people -- arrived at the death camp (Konzentrationslager) Auschwitz II-Birkenau. Unlike all other trains arriving at Auschwitz, it was a real passenger train, not a cattle train. Also, none of their arriving Jews wore the yellow Star of David on their clothes. Arriving Jews were greeted warmly by the “representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Third Reich” Franz Hössler, who announced that this is their last stop before crossing the border with Switzerland, from where they would travel to different countries of South America....

    A memorial plaque with an Ustasha pro-Nazi slogan is pictured after it was moved from the vicinity of the WWII extermination camp of Jasenovac, to a Croatian memorial site near Novska on September 7, 2017. (AFP PHOTO / STRINGER) An alarming and expanding wave of revisionism in Eastern EuropeThe leadership of the small Jewish community in Croatia, along with representatives of the countryÂ’s Serb minority, has boycotted the last two government-sponsored Holocaust commemorations in 2016 and 2017. Demonstrating impressive moral courage and integrity, they refuse to condone a historical revisionism with echoes of Holocaust denial that aims to rehabilitate...

    Find me one nation that has been more devoted to God throughout history than the Jewish people? Find me one nation that has stuck with God despite pogroms, auto-de-fes, expulsions, inquisitions, ghettoization, non-stop persecution, and, ultimately, the Holocaust. Find me a people that continues to honor the Sabbath, put on tefillin, affix mezuzot, keep kosher, marry in the faith, build synagogues and go to mikveh, even after their parents and grandparents were turned into ash at Auschwitz. Find me one nation, like the State of Israel, that honors the complete rights of its 1.5 million Muslim citizens in the heart...

    A plaque has been removed from Canada's Holocaust memorial because it neglected to mention Jewish people. PM Justin Trudeau opened the National Holocaust Monument last week in the capital Ottawa. The plaque commemorated the "millions of men, women and children murdered" but did not specifically mention Jewish people or anti-Semitism.

    The sad reality is that people will often forget human history. “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” I think that everyone needs to read the article, The Nazi’s First Victims Were the Disabled, that was published in the New York Times on September 13. This excellent article is written by Kenny Fries, an author who recently published “In the Province of the Gods.” Fries is writing about his explanation to a young German neurologist of the truth about how the Nazi’s T4 euthanasia program killed as many as 300,000 people with disabilities. The killing techniques...

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) has had problems with anti-Semitism before: remaining associated with Louis Farrakhan and calling his law school colleagues mean slurs. But now he's comparing undocumented immigrants to Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Discussing the DACA decision, Ellison said, "And if you ask yourself what would I do if I was a gentile in 1941, if my Jewish neighbors were under attack by the by the Nazis? Would I give them sanctuary? You might be about to find out what you would do." Ellison, who was a candidate to lead the Democratic Party earlier this year, is saying...

    Jane Hodgson, who died about a decade ago, was celebrated in liberal circles as a pioneer of abortion rights. She was a master at justifying the killing of human life in the womb. Writing about her for the National Right to life News Today (reproduced in lifenews.com, 8/3/17), Dave Andrusko quoted some of her rationalizations: “[T]here is a medical indication to abort a pregnancy where it is not wanted.” “I am concerned with the quality of life, not physical existence.” “A medically necessary abortion is any abortion a woman asks for.” “Is adolescent pregnancy a disease?” Implied is that the...

    Most of us know Ray Allen as a former NBA basketball player with the Milwaukee Bucks, the Seattle Supersonics, Boston Celtics Miami Heat. He's also the NBA's all-time leader in 3-point shots. What most people probably don't know is that Ray has always been fascinated by the Holocaust. In fact, whenever his team would visit Washington, D.C., to play the Wizards, Ray would make a visit to the National Holocaust Museum. Recently, Ray Allen decided to see the history in person. He visited the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland, and he wrote about the experience this week in The Players'...

    Incredibly, it wasn’t until I was 19 that I learned that there had been a Holocaust. My hyper-assimilated, New England Jewish family and friends looked only to the present and future. We focused on the polio vaccine that promised to banish the iron lungs that had been our childhood terror. We trusted in the United Nations, whose gleaming buildings my father took me to see when they were brand-new, and from which I came away with hopeful admiration—mixed, however, with a vague sense, which I couldn’t have put into words then, that perhaps an enterprise housed in architecture so grandiosely...

    President Trump’s son Eric Trump on Tuesday said Democrats are “not even people” to him after their obstruction of his father’s agenda. “I’ve never seen hatred like this,” he said on Fox News’s “Hannity” Tuesday night. “To me, they’re not even people. It’s so, so sad. Morality’s just gone, morals have flown out the window and we deserve so much better than this as a country." “You see the Democratic Party, they’re imploding. They’re imploding. They became obstructionists because they have no message of their own.” Trump additionally criticized the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) leadership without directly naming Chairman Tom...

    DUBLIN — As the Gestapo surrounds the palace of an Italian anti-Fascist aristocrat, an Irish priest dashes to the cellar. He is wanted by the Nazis for his role in the daring rescues of Jews, POWs and refugees, but this time it seems there is no escape. Miraculously, a coal delivery being made to the palace offers the perfect cover — the cleric blackens his face, hides his cassock and slips away to freedom through the narrow cobbled streets of Rome. This dramatic scene, recreated in the 1983 movie “The Scarlet and the Black” starring Gregory Peck as Monsignor...

    On February 17, 2017, President Donald Trump created a firestorm of controversy when he tweeted that the news media (The New York Times, CNN, NBC, and many more) is not his enemy, but is the enemy of the American people. In scrutinizing the Times, in relation to the culture war and major issues within the public square, the indictment, though I have many differences with the president, rings true for me, because, the vast majority of the time, I find myself on one side of an issue and theyÂ’re on the other.And, more than that, there is an overall historical...

    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...

    Typically, when one asks a Democrat about FDR they immediately develop a sense of awe that reminds me of those little green aliens (undocumented space men?) in Toy Story every time they see Buzz Lightyear.” AHHHHH!” I’ve never understood the reverence for Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He gets points for picking great Generals and led this country to victory in WWII. But he totally mismanaged the economy, making the great depression longer…in 1937 unemployment spiked again reaching 19% (the previous high was 25%), his freedom-sapping policies never did get this country out of the Great Depression, and don’t forget that he...

    President Donald Trump commemorated Holocaust Remembrance Day with a speech hosted by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum on Tuesday. The keynote speech was part of the museum’s unveiling of its new conservation and research center, which is home to a collection of artifacts donated by those who survived Adolf Hitler’s massacre of Jews during World War II. "As president of the United States, I will always stand with the Jewish people. And I will always stand with our great friend and partner the state of Israel," Trump said. "Today, we remember the six million Jewish men, women and children...
