    The State Department on Tuesday accused Israel of systematically seizing Palestinian land after the Jewish state okayed the cons In the unusually strongly worded statement, spokesman John Kirby said the reports of new construction permits, which came Sunday as a response to two deadly terror attacks, called into question Israel’s commitment to the two-state solution. “If its true, this report would be the latest step in what seems to be the systematic process of land seizures settlement expansions and legalization of outposts that is fundamentally undermining the prospects for a two-state solution.

    Activist and writer Elie Wiesel, the World War Two death camp survivor who won a Nobel Peace Prize for becoming the life-long voice of millions of Holocaust victims, has died, Israel's Holocaust memorial Yad Vashem said on Saturday. Wiesel, a philosopher, speaker, playwright and professor who also campaigned for the tyrannized and forgotten around the world, was 87. The Romanian-born Wiesel lived by the credo expressed in "Night," his landmark story of the Holocaust - "to forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time." In awarding the Peace Prize in 1986, the Nobel Committee praised Wiesel...

Citing Holocaust denier Roger Garaudy, he said that the number of Jews killed had been 600,000, and not six million. "They added a zero," he said. Nofal further claimed: "We, the Palestinian people, are the victims of your Nazism... Your Holocaust lasted six months, but ours has been going on for 68 years."

Berlin made headlines among Israelis when the "Milky controversy" broke out in 2014. An Israeli Berliner bragged how cheap the cost of living is in Berlin compared to Israel, if grocery receipts are the judge. According to the chocolate pudding index (the Israeli brand being “Milky), the difference is 300 percent. My calculations are not necessarily financial, although I don’t think I could afford living...

Klein said Sanders has a “unique obligation” to not let surrogates “trivialize” the Shoah because the secular Jewish socialist lost many family members to Nazi persecution. Klein contended that law professor William Black, who dropped the H-bomb during a campaign conference call with reporters, should have just called Obama’s economic policies “disastrous.”

    JERUSALEM -- Samuel Willenberg, the last survivor of Treblinka, the Nazi death camp where 875,000 people were systematically murdered, has died in Israel at the age of 93. Only 67 people are known to have survived the camp, fleeing in a revolt shortly before it was destroyed. Treblinka holds a notorious place in history as perhaps the most vivid example of the "Final Solution," the Nazi plan to exterminate Europe's Jews. Unlike at other camps, where some Jews were assigned to forced labour before being killed, nearly all Jews brought to Treblinka were immediately gassed to death. Only a select...

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 Holocaust is defined as the genocide of six million Jews at the hands of the Nazi regime and its collaborators, but in his statement, Trudeau did not mention the words "Jew" or "anti-Semitism" once. 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." ...

    Anti-Semitism is on the rise worldwide, and the United States must lead the fight against it, President Barack Obama said in remarks at the Israeli embassy. "Here, tonight, we must confront the reality that around the world, anti-Semitism is on the rise," Obama said Wednesday at a ceremony marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day. "We cannot deny it," he said. "When we see some Jews leaving major European cities--where their families have lived for generations--because they no longer feel safe; when Jewish centers are targeted from Mumbai to Overland Park, Kansas; when swastikas appear on college campuses--when we see all that...

    A senior British MP has compared a violent anti-Israel riot at a London university last week to kristallnacht, as condemnation of the violence carried out by pro-Palestinian activists continues to mount. In an interview with Sky News on Sunday morning, Sir Eric Pickles - a former minister who now serves as the United Kingdom's Special Envoy for post-Holocaust issues - likened the incident, in which windows were smashed and at least one Jewish student was physically assaulted, to the Nazi pogrom in which anti-Semitic thugs ransacked Jewish-owned synagogues, shops and other establishments in Germany. ...

    Police in Britain have begun an investigation into an on-air phone call to a BBC radio program, in which a caller ranted for 13 minutes against "Zionist Jews" and their "rule" over British society. During BBC London's Simon Lederman program on December 22, the man, introduced as “Andy from St. Margaret's," said the world was controlled by "Zionist Jews," including "the Rothschilds, the people who own the Bank of England, the people who own the Federal Reserve." He then continued with a long tirade in which he complained of an obsession with the Holocaust and said, "we are dominated by...

    Hip-hop mogul and animal-rights advocate Russell Simmons is comparing New York's horse-drawn carriages to slavery and the Holocaust. Simmons spoke Thursday at an event organized by horse carriage opponents. The Wall Street Journal reports that he likened horse carriages to slavery, ethnic cleansing and "people who put people in ovens."

    May I remind John sKerry that it is existing federal law (8 USC) that anyone associated with the Nazi Party and the Holocaust, despite the passage of time, is permanently ineligible to enter the United States. May I also remind John sKerry that one's political affiliation is, just like their religious affiliation, a voluntary matter. And may I further remind John sKerry, along with the mainslime media and the other so-called "candidates" who are evidencing a desire to see terrorists attack Americans on American soil, and thus should be run out of town on a rail, that only a very...
  • DNC: Anti-Refugee Rhetoric Is Same As Turning Away Jews in 1939

    The Democratic National Committee cannot tolerate Republican rhetoric against the Obama administration's Syrian refugee plan. Rejecting these migrants is equal, in Debbie Wasserman Schultz's eyes, to America's turning away Jews in 1939, forcing them back into Nazi territory. "We have seen this movie before. In May 1939, the SS St. Louis left Hamburg, Germany carrying more than 900 passengers, nearly all of them Jewish and seeking refuge in the United States. Our country turned them away, and many who were sent back to mainland Europe were killed in the Holocaust. Instead of learning from that mistake Republican candidates and politicians were...

    In a TV debate, Egyptian intellectual Dr. Mamoun Fendy compared the Arab and Islamic communities in Europe to the ghettoes of the Jews prior to WWII and presented an extreme position: "that it's possible that the Europeans will do to the Muslims what Hitler did to the Jews." The debate aired on Sky News Arabia on November 19, 2015. Following are excerpts: Mamoun Fandy: Let me say something somewhat extreme about the Muslims living in the West, and I hope that we are talking about a worst case scenario. We have a "geography of extremism" in the West today. The...

    In the opening chapters of “Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning,” Yale professor Timothy Snyder forcefully acknowledged what he calls the “ecological” Anti-Semitism of the Fuhrer, “An instructive account of the mass murder of the Jews of Europe must be planetary, because Hitler’s thought was ecological, treating Jews as a wound of nature.” In spite of such an assertion, however, the great caveat of Snyder’s book is he inexplicably fails to discuss the Nazi ecological historical record that should have informed his thesis ...

    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...

    On the October 25 airing of Meet the Press, Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson stressed the important role an armed citizenry plays in preventing tyranny, saying, the government finds it “much more difficult to dominate people who are armed.” That statement came after host Chuck Todd revisited Carson’s past comments about how he believes European Jews could have limited the scope of the Holocaust had they been armed. It was October 8 when Carson said, “I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed. I’m telling...
