    The situation facing European Jewry is “simply intolerable, unacceptable and inexcusable,” Israeli Jewish Congress president Vladimir Sloutsker told MKs and foreign diplomats at a special session of the Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Committee on Monday. Calling the rise in anti-Semitic incidents accompanying Israel’s invasion of Gaza an “SOS situation,” Sloutsker warned that if left unchecked, such behavior could lead to another European genocide. “Never before since the Holocaust, have we seen such a situation as today,” he said, referring to the continent-wide demonstrations by pro-Palestinian activists, a number of which have generated into violence and many of which have...

    That's the title of an article at the Gatestone Institute by Douglas Murray. It paints a disturbing picture of the rise of anti-Semitism on the Continent and in Great Britain, begging the question of whether these sporadic outbursts of violence directed against Jews might explode into something truly nasty and barbaric - a pogrom. After describing several incidents that occurred at London protests - including one young Muslim holding up a sign that said "Hitler was right" - Murray takes us on a tour of protests across Europe: All of this is mild compared to what has been going on...

    When U.S. troops invaded Iraq in 2003, there were at least 1.5 million Christians in Iraq. Over the last ten years, significantly in the last few months with the emergence of ISIS, that figure has dropped to about 400,000. In a region where Christians predate Muslims by centuries, over one million Christians have been killed or have had to flee because of jihadi persecution, while America is basically standing by and watching. This is the sad news that Breitbart’s National Security Editor and one of the world’s leading experts on asymmetric warfare, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, brought to Breitbart News Saturday,...

    Approximately 2,000 eighth graders in the Rialto, CA, school district received a shocking in-class essay assignment in May, which led to an outcry from the community and a public apology from district administrators. The assignment asked students to discuss whether the Holocaust “was an actual event in history,” or whether it was “merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain,” the San Bernadino Sun reports. After the justified outrage ensued, district administrators insisted that not one single student had argued against the reality of the Holocaust. But the San Bernadino Sun, after sifting through hundreds of student...

    Earlier this year, eighth graders enrolled in the Rialto Unified School District in Rialto, California were assigned a rather questionable essay assignment: Did the Holocaust happen, or was it "merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain wealth[?]" The district immediately apologized for the assignment once it came to light, and initially claimed that no students wrote that the Holocaust was a hoax. That allegation was wrong, as the San Bernadino County Sun newspaper discovered that over 50 students expressed doubt that the Holocaust happened in their essays, and were given high marks for their views. “I...

Rialto Unified School District administrators, besieged by criticism after the assignment became public in May, claimed at the time that none of the students who completed the assignment questioned or denied the Holocaust, but a survey of the students’ work by this news organization found numerous examples of students expressing doubt or flatly denying that the Holocaust occurred. :snip: “Students got high praise and grades for writing that the Holocaust was a hoax.

    Theological Studies ^ | Michael Vlach
    Perspectives concerning supersessionism have been seriously affected by two twentieth-century developments—the Holocaust and the establishment of the modern state of Israel. These events have pushed questions and issues concerning Israel and the church to the forefront of Christian theology.[1] More than any other event, the Holocaust has been the most significant factor in the church’s reevaluation of supersessionism. According to Irvin J. Borowsky, “Within Christendom since the time of Hitler, there has existed a widespread reaction of shock and soul-searching concerning the Holocaust.”[2] Peter Ochs asserts that Christian reflections on the Jews and Judaism after the Holocaust “have generated theological...

    Belgian doctor Wim Distelmans, an advocate of euthanasia, has triggered controversy by planning a study trip to Auschwitz, which he describes as an “inspiring venue” in which to “clarify confusion” about mercy killing. Shimon Samuels of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre called Prof Distelmans’s Auschwitz initiative “a travesty”. “The connection he’s making is perverse. He has to stand down, cancel the trip and make a declaration condemning the so-called ‘mercy euthanasia’ practised by the Nazis,” he said. Mr Samuels added that if the trip was simply a badly thought-out idea, the professor should at least admit he made a mistake. Prof...

The pamphlets and posters, distributed in the eastern Ukraine city of Donetsk, demanded that the Jewish population register, pay a new tax or leave.

Though the Holocaust ranks high among the great human tragedies, most people never consider the most important question: How did Adolf Hitler and the Nazis gain the power that they needed to commit such horror?

In one fell swoop, Stone revealed the Orwellian thought control that is the black heart of leftism. The Holocaust was a crime of almost unimaginable human suffering, and if Stone’s remarks were intended to remind us that Polish Catholics and Gypsies, particularly, suffered genocide at Nazi hands as well, then perhaps Stone...

At first he heard screams in the frigid waters but the voices died down. It eventually emerged that Stoliar was the sole survivor of the Struma, an un-seaworthy vessel chuck-full of frantic Jewish refugees. World War II was already in fever pitch. Against the enormity of the then-unfolding Holocaust, the loss at sea of 768 Jewish lives (103 of them babies and children) was at most blithely overlooked as a marginal annotation. Moreover, although these Jews fled the...

    France's state-owned railway is set to be banned from bidding for a Ł4 billion contract in the USA because of its role in the World War II Holocaust, it emerged today. SNCF runs some of the fastest and most efficient lines in the world but has a dark history which saw it transport thousands of Jews to their deaths in German concentration camps. Now senators in the US state of Maryland have proposed a bill which would make it illegal for the French to apply for prestige projects.

    When the White House scribblers were putting the finishing touches on the State of the Union address, President Obama took a moment to commemorate memory. Monday was International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the 69th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the most notorious of Hitler's death camps. "Each year on this day," he said, "the world comes together to commemorate a barbaric crime unique in human history." But not quite the whole world. Anti-Semitism thrives in the Middle East, where certain politicians vie to see who can say the ugliest things about Jews, and such sentiment is surging in Europe. Bloody...

    On the surface, it is very moving to see half of the members of Knesset at Auschwitz marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day. But in a larger sense, it is not at all clear why this is necessary. The Jewish people have Yom HaShoah V’Hagevura, our own national day of mourning for the genocide of our people in Europe. More importantly, we carry the legacy of the Holocaust inside of us. Every day, at some level, we experience the ulcerative loss of a third of the Jewish people in the hell of Europe, because we feel the hollow absence of the...

    I'd like you all to meet Hassan Farooq. Farooq was a Holocaust Day speaker in London in 2013. Let's go to the videotape. But a British organization called Stand for Peace has done an investigation into Mr. Farouq and has found some very disturbing things. Hassan Farooq is a a “senior member” of the Newham Dawah Team, an East London-based organisation which attempts to spread the message of Islam. Newham Dawah Team is part of the Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA) Network, and its officials regularly liaise with iERA officials such as Abdurraheem Green. The iERA is an extremist...

    Recently released documents that were made public under the freedom of information order, “in compliance with the duty of candour” in our ongoing legal action against the the British government for banning Robert Spencer and me, it was revealed reveal that a chief reason why we were banned from the country was because we strongly support Israel. In one of them, an official in the Foreign & Commonwealth Office whose name was redacted wrote this letter on May 7 to a recipient, whose name was also redacted: I have received initial feedback from Post to say that they do not...

    One black-and white photo shows Heinrich Himmler on an idyllic family outing, holding his wife's hand while his blond, pigtailed daughter is picking flowers. Others show the SS Nazi leader feeding a little fawn or taking a bath at Lake Tegernsee near his home in Bavaria. The family-friendly, intimate scenes are part of a previously unseen collection of photos, recipe books and about 700 letters and notes believed to be written by Himmler, one of the Nazis most responsible for the Holocaust. Excerpts from the collection appeared in seven full pages of the German paper Welt am Sonntag on Sunday....

    Alfred Hitchcock's lost documentary about the horrors of the Holocaust is scheduled to be screened in full for the first time. The legendary moviemaker created the documentary using footage filmed during the liberation of Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany in 1945, and Hitchcock was reportedly so traumatized by the shocking scenes, he took a week off work to recover. The project, originally titled Memory of the Camps, was eventually shelved, and the film reels were given to the Imperial War Museum in London. Some of the documentary was later cobbled back together and an incomplete version was screened at the...

    These 25 minutes of footage and interviews are the last of it, we’re promisedRemember Jerry Lewis’ never-released Holocaust film? The one about the German-Jewish clown sent to Auschwitz (!) to entertain children as they’re sent to the gas chamber (!)? The grotesque comedic rendering of concentration camp life in which—spoiler alert—Lewis’ clown decides to voluntarily enter the gas chambers himself could have been the stuff of cinematic urban legend—Lewis told the New Yorker the film would never see the light of day—but thanks to the Internet it’s very, very real. The 1972 film, The Day the Clown Cried, which Spy...
