    Most people have no idea about the runup to the Holocaust or the antecedent cultural, religious, and socioeconomic circumstances which the Jewish people have suffered for centuries. Most have heard of anti-Semitism but few if any, even amongst Jews themselves, recognize that the Holocaust did not occur in a vacuum or that European anti-Semitism wasn’t invented in Germany. Over the centuries, during good times the Jews of Europe were tolerated and in some cases even allowed to rise to positions of power. But rarely if ever were accepted as equal citizens in a host country. Amid times of woe, which...
  • Daniel Pipes: There's a name for Trump's brand of politics: neo-fascism

    Of his many outrageous campaign statements, perhaps Donald J. Trump's most important ones concern his hoped-for role as president of the United States. When told that uniformed personnel would disobey his unlawful order as president to torture prisoners and kill civilians, Trump menacingly replied "They won't refuse. They're not going to refuse, believe me." Responding to criticism by the speaker of the House, Trump spoke like a Mafia don: "Paul Ryan, I don't know him well, but I'm sure I'm going to get along great with him. And if I don't? He's gonna have to pay a big price." ......

    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...

    Islamist mobs have torched schools and businesses owned by Christians, looted churches and even paraded captive nuns through the streets of a city south of Cairo in a display of rage unseen in Egypt’s recent history. ........ The campaign of killing and arson is retaliation for the tiny Christian community’s support of the military coup that ousted President Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood government. ........ Since the military removed Mr. Morsi seven weeks ago, his supporters have burned at least 44 churches and ransacked more than 20 other Christian institutions throughout Egypt. ......

    It has been exactly twenty years now, but the images just won’t go away. I remember August 24, 1992 as if it was yesterday. I was eleven years old and on TV I saw houses burning, people applauding, cheering and shouting, “We’ll get all of you!” and “Germany for Germans! Foreigners out!” Those words were directed towards the more than one-hundred people trapped inside the houses. It was in Rostock- Lichtenhagen, a huge housing complex in East Germany, where several thousand Asylum seekers and immigrants were living among some ten thousand Germans. Just days before German authorities planned to evacuate...

    Farhud: a slaughter in Iraq By Lyn Julius, May 31, 2011 There was a frenzied banging on the front door. When my mother answered it, she recognised her aunt's Jewish cook, ashen-faced, pleading to be let in: "I was on a bus, and the Muslims were pulling the Jewish passengers out and killing them. I said I was a Christian." A month earlier, pro-Nazi officers led by Rashid Ali al-Ghailani, had staged a successful coup in Iraq. The German-backed Rashid Ali and his men were soon routed by British troops - but not before they had incited murder and mayhem...
  • What Were We Thinking?

    What Were We Thinking? by Ari Bussel They say they do not hate the Jewish State, some even say they “feel right at home.” They say they are “pro-Israel” and are concerned with Israel’s well being and her ability to maintain a democratic and Jewish character. But their actions do everything possible to bring about the Jewish homeland’s demise, her downfall. They say they care so much about Israel, although they are American and do not live there. They are “distance” lovers, which apparently gives them the right and obligation to dictate to the Jewish State their views on her...

    The passage of sweeping national health care legislation by the U.S. House of Representatives has set the stage for the greatest intrusion of the State into the everyday lives of the American people in the nation's history. Across the Web, the groans and cries of the free-marketers, capitalists, and libertarians have begun to echo in response. Surprisingly, many of these voices condemn the Catholic Church for its "socialist" commitment to feeding the poor, caring for the sick, and doing the other things Jesus Christ commanded of us. "Without the support of you bleeding-heart Catholics," the refrain goes, "this socialist nightmare...

    "Pray for the Christians of India, pray for our people . . . so that they may understand that God is greater than anything, and can overcome evil with good": this is the message that Sr. Nirmala Joshi, superior of the Missionaries of Charity, has given to AsiaNews during her visit to Orissa, where for more than a month radical Hindu groups have unleashed a pogrom against Christians. The Missionaries of Charity, Mother Teresa's order, have been struck by the wave of violence; orphanages and hospices for lepers where they welcomed the abandoned have been destroyed. The brutality of the...

    For a long time the proponents of Kosovo’s independence have acted as if the game was up, that all that remained was for the “international community” to settle on the formula for independence—and for Serbia to sign on the dotted line under pressure. Until recently, many old Balkan hands in the world’s capitals that matter expected that by the end of 2006 it would be all over. There are recent signs, however, that “it” won’t be over that soon, and that the outcome is by no means preordained. It did not look that way when the United Nations abandoned its...

    ...The U.N. took on the Mideast as one of its first big projects after World War II and, unfortunately, has never left. After granting Israel statehood in 1948, the U.N. turned to the Arabs the Israelis had defeated in battle. Under Resolution 302, the General Assembly in 1949 created the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). Today, it is the largest U.N. bureaucracy, with 25,000 employees providing health care, schooling and social services to some 4 million Palestinians in 59 refugee camps in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the West Bank and Gaza. The...

    PARIS — For the past four years — as friends erased "Dirty Jew" graffiti from their office plaques and her French-born daughter puzzled over "go back where you belong" comments from strangers on the street — Evelyne Chiche has spent a piece of each day wondering if she was living in the wrong country. This spring, the 62-year-old Jewish radio host plans to move to Miami. "I think it's important for my grandchildren here that I move, to provide them with a safe place should they need to get away," she said, waiting until a nearby businessman left the restaurant...
