  • On the Frontlines of Progressive Anti-Semitism: I am a young, gay, left-wing Jew. [tr]

    I have never done 23-and-me, nor have I “’d” myself. It’s never felt necessary. My family’s Eastern European Jewish heritage was something we lived to honor, including in our politics. Like so many others, my family came to this country escaping discrimination in the Old Country and facing injustice in the New: abusive labor conditions; university quotas; social exclusion when we tried to climb the ladder of the American dream. Given our history in this country — and our involvement in so many social justice movements — it shouldn’t be a surprise that so many young Jews, myself included, can’t...

    The Israeli Foreign Ministry tweeted a map of the areas most affected by Palestinian Arab rockets, explaining that “one million Israeli civilians are forced into shelters”. After the Israeli army eliminated the commander of the Islamic Jihad Abu al Atta in a building in the Shejaeya district of Gaza, terrorists from Gaza responded with the launch of over 250 missiles, reaching even Tel Aviv, Nathan A. Sales, coordinator of the US State Department for terrorism, revealed the total amount of money Iran is spending to finance anti-Israel terrorism: Iran provides 700 million dollars a year to Hezbollah and an additional...
  • Disproportionalities: Whose Fault?

    Jews have been awarded 40% of the Nobel Prizes in economics, 30% of those in medicine, 25% in physics, 20% in chemistry, 15% in literature and 10% of the Nobel Peace Prizes. Since the beginning of the 20th century, there have been just over 900 Nobel Prizes awarded. Since Jews are only 2% of the world's population, instead having 22% of Nobel Prizes, 206, they should have won only two, according to the proportionality vision of justice. There's an even greater domestic violation of the proportionality vision. Jews are less than 3% of the U.S. population but 35% of American...

    IF aliens dropped in from Mars, well, they could be forgiven for thinking that a Town Hall meeting titled ‘Hate Crimes’ – in partnership with CAIR – is a beneficial public service. But the reality is the polar opposite on a multiplicity of levels. Dangerously so. Indictable. INTERSECTING LEVELS & INDICTMENTS:....Ominously, the upcoming pow-wow is coming from the most jacked-up Jihadi arena imaginable; that which is primed to explode – and CAIR is completely linked into said nexus of terror! Said charges are backed-up at an attached SCRIBD Counterterrorism Report (see below), and it is more than telling that St....

    Not a day goes by without Jews being shot in their synagogues, stabbed, bludgeoned by blocks, physically attacked, pushed to the ground, spat on, and cursed; without graffiti on the walls of Jewish institutions, graffiti on the walls of synagogues; without victims killed, maimed for life, traumatized, hospitalized, extended rehabilitation. The list goes on and on. Older Chassidic Jews, young orthodox Jews, Conservative Jews, Reform Jews, non-affiliated Jews — they are all targeted, irrespective of their level of Jewishness, irrespective of whether they look or act Jewish. They are preyed upon only because they are Jews. The daily incidents now...

    A roving band of teen robbers slugged three Orthodox Jewish men in the face in Brooklyn early Monday and tried to rob them, sparking an NYPD hate crime probe, authorities said. The three robbers first walked up to a 71-year-old man on Ross St. near Bedford Ave. in Williamsburg and punched him in the fact about 5 a.m. They checked his pockets, but found nothing to steal and took off. The man was treated at Bellevue Hospital.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are trying to find the suspect in an assault that may have been fueled by hate. The victim is out of the hospital and recovering at home. His family tells CBS2’s Ali Bauman the beloved father and grandfather was exercising on the fields at a Crown Heights park like he does every week when he was blindsided by a man yielding a very large rock. Investigators say the suspect hit the 63-year-old man with a paving stone Tuesday morning inside Lincoln Terrace Park.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are looking for two suspects who they say attacked an Orthodox Jewish man in front of a synagogue in Brooklyn. It’s the third attack on Orthodox men in Brooklyn in less than a week, according to police. It happened in Midwood on Saturday night just as Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath, was coming to an end, CBS2’s Marc Liverman reported. Police said the 45-year-old victim was walking home when he saw two men drinking in front of a synagogue near Avenue J and East 15th Street. They said there was some type of verbal dispute. That’s...

    Yasmine Mohammed has a story that sounds like an adventure novel. The ex-Muslim, as she calls herself, escaped a forced marriage to an al-Qaeda operative, who was bailed out of prison by Osama bin Laden himself. The author of Confessions of an Ex-Muslim is now open about her past so she can help others, she told The Jerusalem Post. Mohammed says that she is on a mission to help closeted apostates living in Muslim-majority countries, and to teach the “naive West” about what she calls the true nature of Islam. The educator and author has become a prominent voice within...

    Developers say local leaders in the Hudson Valley are blocking a housing project in order to keep out Hasidic Jews. In a peaceful corner of the Hudson Valley, a broad expanse of land sits at the ready for hundreds of homes ranging between 2,500 and 3,400 square feet, with views of the surrounding hills. There will be a recreation center and tennis courts, and nearly half of the development’s 117 acres will be kept as open space. But if it were up to town officials, the houses would never be built. They openly fret about the size and density of...
  • Actress Rosanna Arquette Is Sorry She’s White: “It Disgusts Me”

    Rosanna Arquette, actress, and #MeToo activist is a member of a Hollywood family that frequently gets political. This week she announced her disgust with her own skin color. She literally took old-school liberal white guilt to a whole new level.Wednesday Arquette tweeted: “I’m sorry I was born white and privileged. It disgusts me. And I feel so much shame.” I would include her tweet here but alas, the actress has “protected” her account, which means only approved followers can see her tweets. She was advised to do so by the FBI, according to her representative. She has more than...
  • What Jewish law really says about abortion

    (JTA) – Alabama and Georgia have passed laws recently that limit or forbid abortions in unprecedented ways, joining a growing number of states that are attempting to dramatically restrict abortion access. During these charged times, it is appropriate for the Jewish community to remind ourselves that halacha (Jewish law) has a nuanced view of abortion. It seems that many in the Orthodox Jewish community have not been overly worried by these and other efforts to curtail legal abortion. Ben Shapiro, a conservative commentator who identifies as an Orthodox Jew, has long been a loud voice in favor of government-imposed restrictions...

    During a week in which President Donald Trump called out at least three U.S. lawmakers over their anti-Semitism and outsized praise of militant Islam, the Justice Department has quietly launched a probe of what officials say is a rising tide of Jewish hatred around the country. As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, the DoJ sponsored a day-long event on Tuesday to examine cases of rising anti-Semitism — in Democrat-run American cities, on Leftist college and university campuses, and in other places: The Trump administration is working on multiple fronts to investigate and combat a rising tide of anti-Semitism in...

The people of Gaza are not rational.” He said it. And yet it is still the conventional wisdom in Washington that this conflict between Israel and the “Palestinians” can be solved by a negotiated settlement. It can’t.

    In 2015 at CPAC, Donald Trump said that Jeff Epstein was "a nice guy, but I believe Bill Clinton will be in trouble over the (Epstein) island". Epstein has now been re-arrested for systematic underage sex abuse, and already the partisan fingers are pointing at each other. Clinton flew on 26 trips in Epstein's private plane, Trump accused Epstein and Clinton in public at CPAC 2015, and the screen grab below is of that moment in 2015.  There is little question that "sex travel" to Third World countries has always been this way. It appears in famous novels with...

    Most watchers of Venezuela know that anti-Semitism has been a problem for years. Now Maria Corina Machado, Venezuela's most credible opposition leader, has made a stunning revelation in an interview with Ha'aretz: “There is a deep anti-Semitism campaign whose source is Chavez,” she explains, referring to the 2009 attack in which Caracas’ Tiferet Israel synagogue was desecrated and damaged, among other things, by graffiti reading “Jews out.” "Lists of names of synagogue members were stolen in order to chase down members of the Jewish community. I have many friends who were chased out, attacked and threatened," Machado says. “Anti-Semitism was...

    FULL TITLE: Palestinian worshippers barricade themselves inside highly sensitive Temple Mount after clashing with police after Jews were allowed inside during Israeli holiday which coincides with end of Ramadan Palestinian worshippers clashed with Israeli police at a highly sensitive Jerusalem holy site on Sunday as an Israeli holiday coincided with the final days of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Muslim worshippers at the Al-Aqsa mosque compound were angered over Jewish visits to the site holy to both religions, with some even taking to the dome of the mosque to shout Muslim slogans as the clash took place. According to...

    While I was visiting Germany over the long weekend, this stomach-turning story broke and made a bit of a splash, and understandably so.  The German government's top official on combating anti-semitism has recommended that Jews take steps to hide their religious and ethnic heritage while in public, in order to prevent hate crimes and incidents against them.  This would be a stunning admonition coming from any senior figure in Berlin, but it's particularly galling and alarming coming from the man explicitly charged with fighting anti-Jewish bigotry in a nation with an exceptionally dark history on the subject.  Against this grisly...

    On midnight, MAY 14, 1948, the State of Israel came into being and was immediately recognized by the United States and the Soviet Union. A homeland for the thousands of Jews who were persecuted and displaced during World War II, Israel was attacked the next day by the Transjordanian Army, the Arab Legion, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq. Against all odds, Israel survived. The Armistice between Israel and her enemies was negotiated by Ralph Bunche, the first African American to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. In 1947, Ralph Bunche set up a meeting between two members of UNSCOP and Menachem...
