  • Amnesty slammed for claiming critics of its anti-Israel report ‘weaponize antisemitism’

    British supporters of Israel reacted with outrage this week after Amnesty International’s general secretary said that anyone who criticizes its report accusing Israel of “apartheid” is “weaponizing antisemitism.” The UK government’s antisemitism adviser, Lord Mann, blasted Amnesty for “looking obsessional” and “undermining all its other work.” “Amnesty International is losing its influence by ruining its credibility,” Man told the Jewish Chronicle. At the meeting, Callamard allegedly said that critics of the report were attempting to manufacture claims of antisemitism in order to silence free speech. “They are calling names and refusing to engage,” she said. “[This is] a form of...
  • Introducing Mariam Barghouti, Washington Post Op-Ed Contributor-She said Israel is "beating Hitler at his own game since 1948."

    Like the New York Times with its roster of anti-Israel contributors, such as the anti-Israel post-Zionist Peter Beinart, the Washington Post favors op-ed contributors on Israel-Palestine who are very much on the side of the Palestinians. A recent example, featuring the Palestinian Mariam Barghouti, is reported on here: “Washington Post Publishes Op-Ed by Mariam Barghouti, Who Compared Israel to Nazi Germany,” by Rachel O’Donoghue, Algemeiner, April 1, 2022: It would appear that having a documented history that has included comparing Israel to Nazi Germany does not preclude one from offering their opinions on the editorial webpages of The Washington Post,...

    As I was checking out of the grocery store on Friday morning and thanking a Palestinian Arab worker for helping to bag my groceries so efficiently and quickly, then wishing him and the Palestinian Arab cashier a Shabbat Shalom, I was pulled the side by the store manager and reprimanded. “Don’t you know, sir, that we are an apartheid state, and we are neither to show any interest in or empathy for the Palestinian Arabs workers, and certainly not treat them with kindness or respect because everything in our interaction with them needs to be about discrimination and subjugation, not...
  • Hardcore vaccine refuseniks could need deradicalising like terrorists – expert-(UK)

    A “deradicalisation” programme like those given to former terrorists or cult members might be the only way to dissuade some hardcore antivaxxers from their beliefs, according to one psychology expert. Around six million eligible people in the UK have not received a single jab a year on from the first Covid vaccination being given in the UK. Professor Stephan Lewandowsky, chair in cognitive psychology at the University of Bristol, was keen to stress that many of those are likely to be “marginalised” people who are “very difficult to reach for anything”, and for whom access is likely to be the...

    During the local election campaign Ferial Haffajee wrote about the sad state of her part (and every part) of Johannesburg: litter everywhere, potholes, street lights and traffic lights that don’t work, irregular water, irregular power, uncollected rubbish and all the rest of it. When she recited this lament to the ANC she was angrily accused of “nostalgia for the white city”.In today’s South Africa it is, of course, politically inadmissible to say that the whites got anything right so instead Ferial recorded sadly how in the years before 1994 there had been lots of bold talk by the UDF about...

    JOHANNESBURG (AP) — F.W. de Klerk, who shared the Nobel Peace Prize with Nelson Mandela and as South Africa’s last apartheid president oversaw the end of the country’s white minority rule, has died at the age of 85. De Klerk died after a battle against cancer at his home in the Fresnaye area of Cape Town, a spokesman for the F.W. de Klerk Foundation confirmed on Thursday. De Klerk was a controversial figure in South Africa where many blamed him for violence against Black South Africans and anti-apartheid activists during his time in power, while some whites saw his efforts...
  • Stop Cheapening Important Historical Terms

    Jewish Journal ^ | Mickah Danzig
    Just as Anti-Vaxxers are not “Refuseniks,” Palestinians are not experiencing either “apartheid” or “genocide.” Recently, heroic human rights activist Natan Sharansky, who spent over nine years in Soviet prisons as part of his very personal and also very public fight for Jewish freedom in the Soviet Union, commented on how the use of the term “Refusenik” to describe people who refuse to get vaccinated against COVID-19 “cheapens” the term. Sharansky (who coined the “3-D” test for determining when criticism of Israel is actually antisemitic”) described how the term “Refusenik” came to be: “Half a century ago, a modest Russian language...

    1st October 2021 Features Emma’s interrogator said her arrest was part of a major national operation, in which Christians in as many as 23 other Iranian provinces had been detained. It was the day after Christmas in 2010, just two months since the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, had warned in an infamous speech in Qom that the spread of house-churches were among the “critical threats” facing the Islamic Republic – by “deceiving young Muslims”. It was a speech that made headlines around the world, and it seems as though Emma’s interrogator was one of those listening. “He said that...

    Today, any connection with slavery, however tenuous, is enough to make historical figures into non-persons. It’s time to treat the subjugation of Jews in Arab lands with the same seriousness. Although anticipated with trepidation, the United Nations’ Durban IV commemoration, titled “Reparations, racial justice and equality for people of African descent,” seems to have turned out to have been a damp squib. But it might not be long before another excuse for an anti-Israel hatefest presents itself. The propaganda strategy behind the Durban conference—to paint one nation (and one nation alone) as racist—remains alive and well on campus and in...

    World Cup host has not properly investigated fatalities, rights group says, citing concerns over heat stress and safety World Cup host Qatar has failed to investigate the deaths of thousands of migrant workers in the past decade, according to a new report by Amnesty International. The human rights organisation said the majority of migrant worker deaths in Qatar are attributed to “natural causes”, cardiac or respiratory failure; classifications which are “meaningless” without the underlying cause of death explained, according to one expert cited. As a result, as many as 70% of deaths may be unexplained. “In a well resourced health...

    New Zealand’s COVID-19 Response Minister warned that the government soon will begin “chasing out” people who still haven’t gotten the COVID-19 vaccine. MP Chris Hipkins said Wednesday that the New Zealand government next year will soon start pursuing individuals who haven’t “come forward” to get the experimental jab. “I think early next year we’ll be in the phase of chasing out people who haven’t come forward to get their vaccination, or missed their bookings and so on,” Hipkins told reporters following a COVID press update.

    Former porn star Mia Khalifa slammed Israel in a series of tweets this weekend — posting a photo of herself enjoying some vino while writing, “My wine is older than your apartheid ‘state.'” While Khalifa has made a habit of posting anti-Israel messages on social media since this month’s conflict between the Jewish state and Hamas in Gaza, the wine tweet drew the most widespread reaction. “I love how Israel haters cast It as young,” wrote The Dispatch editor-in-chief Jonah Goldberg. “Yes the modern state of Israel was founded in ‘48 — but that’s 10 years before Iraq’s founding and...

    The hypocrisy of the Left in the US is boundless. The likes of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AOC) epitomize it. This New York Congresswoman has shamelessly called Israel an “apartheid state.” She didn’t call the Hamas terrorist regime in Gaza, which is “Judenrein,” (any Jew found in Gaza would be murdered) or Saudi Arabia, and Jordan, who do not allow Jews to live in its territories, apartheid states. They actually deserve that title. Conversely, Israel is an open democracy with a free press, the rule-of-law, and where human and civil rights are observed. Israel brought Black African Jews from Ethiopia, to...

    Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer appear to be at odds with a vocal segment of the Democratic Party that has criticized Israel's actions toward the Palestinians amid the region's escalating conflict. According to the Associated Press, more than 120 Palestinians have been killed—including 31 children and 20 women. An additional 900 have been injured. "My expectation and hope is this will be closing down sooner than later," Biden said . "Israel has a right to defend itself when you have thousands of rockets flying into your territory." Pelosi issued a similar statement on Tuesday. "I condemn the escalating...

    It is a hard fact that the centre of gravity of Israeli politics is now far to the Right, and still moving rightwards. This will remain so, with or without ‘Bibi’ There was a tempest in a small teapot recently, as Human Rights Watch (HRW) accused Israel of apartheid. That echoed the views of the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem, which said in January that the current Israeli Government is an “apartheid regime.” But the official response was different. The Israeli Government ignored B’Tselem, but its Washington Embassy gave HRW the standard response to foreign criticism: “We strongly reject the...
