  • Time's Up for Columbia: Disgraced Democratic Attorney Roberta Kaplan Reps Ivy League School in Anti-Semitism Suit After Stepping Down From Women's Rights Org

    The Democratic superlawyer who resigned in disgrace from the #MeToo organization Time's Up after helping former New York governor Andrew Cuomo (D.) discredit his accusers is now defending Columbia University against a lawsuit alleging that it fosters a pervasive culture of anti-Semitism. Roberta Kaplan filed notice last month to represent Columbia and its sister college, Barnard, against lawsuits that accuse school leaders of enabling an "antisemitic hostile educational environment" in the wake of Hamas's terrorist attack on Israel. Students Against Antisemitism and a group of five Columbia students allege that school leaders have turned a blind eye as anti-Semitic activists...

    On Monday’s broadcast of “CNN NewsNight,” former DNC chair and former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean stated that while he admires President Joe Biden approaching foreign policy based on what’s best for the country, “I do think, however, that he is moving towards a position” that is “probably more to the liking of Arab Americans.” Dean said, “I think Netanyahu has always tried to push things his way. I think relationships with the United States, particularly with the Democrats, started to slide downhill when Netanyahu addressed the Congress at the invitation of the Republicans without bothering to consult with President Obama,...

    One of President Biden’s top advisers told fuming Arab and Muslim American community leaders in Michigan this week that the administration has made “missteps” in its support for Israel’s war against Hamas terrorists in Gaza. “We are very well aware that we have missteps in the course of responding to this crisis since Oct. 7,” Deputy National Security Adviser Jon Finer said during a Thursday meeting in Dearborn, Mich., with Muslim and Arab Americans, including state and local Democratic elected officials, according to the New York Times. “We have left a very damaging impression based on what has been a...

    When I was a kid growing up in the Warrendale section of Detroit in the 1970s, the Polish presence was everywhere. Warren Avenue was "the Strip" of our turf, and it was littered with family businesses with difficult names like the Jarzembowski Funeral Home. There was the Kozy Korner, with Kozy being short for a name I can't begin to spell. ... A good friend I grew up with, whom I'll call Hoppy, remained in Warrendale until 2015 and only moved after some gang-bangers took a potshot at him as he was shoveling snow. In true Detroit style, he snarled...

    A holiday party hosted by Michigan Democrats spiraled into violence after pro-Palestine activists crashed the event and sent one attendee to the hospital. 'Them Arabs in motherf***ing Detroit tried to kill me!' said an activist who sustained two black eyes in the clashes. On December 16, the 13th Congressional District Democratic Party held a private party at the Common Pub in Detroit, where around 200 people were in attendance.

    I'll never forget the day in 1983 when white people on my college campus accused me of not being a "real" Arab. And, worse, of acting and thinking like a white person. It was a surreal moment because it was white people doing the accusing. I'd been a dark-skinned person all my life, with a quintessential Arabic last name, but never considered myself white. I'm also Italian on my mother's side, and in the summers, my skin gets darker than Barack Obama's. I was raised in a New Jersey suburban town of 20,000 and was the only person with an...

    Daily Mail UK ^ | December 7, 2023 | Rob Crilly,
    Men in the Middle East have worn long flowing robes for centuries. Thobes or dishdashas protect the wearer from the brutal heat of the desert while maintaining modesty. On Wednesday night, Republican presidential hopeful Ron DeSantis called them 'man dresses,' mystifying or insulting a swath of the globe at a stroke. Social media quickly lit up as users poked fun at his casual dismissal of the clothing worn by men in Iraq and much of the Middle East. The bizarre moment came during the fourth Republican debate when DeSantis, the governor of Florida, was asked about his pledge to send...

    The brutality and elation of Hamas militants as they killed Israeli civilians — including babies, young children and the elderly — is evident in an Israeli government compilation of videos shown to two dozen journalists in New York on Friday. Israeli officials said they showed the compilation to President Joe Biden when he visited Israel on October 18th. They also showed it to a group of journalists in Israel, including NBC’s Raf Sanchez, on Wednesday. The atrocities depicted suggest that jihadism has evolved in chilling and perverse new ways. Throughout the roughly 45 minutes of footage, the attackers cheered as...

    Washington -- US President Joe Biden has said that he is convinced that one of the reasons why Hamas launched a terrorist attack on Israel was because of the recent announcement during the G-20 Summit in New Delhi on the ambitious India-Middle East-Europe Economic Corridor that integrates the entire region with a network of railroad. Israel has launched a massive counter-offensive against Hamas after unprecedented attacks by the militant group on October 7 killed more than 1,400 people. Biden told reporters at a joint news conference with the visiting Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese that his analysis is based on...

    While the Arab states make a hue and cry about Israel’s wrongdoings in Gaza, they themselves are not doing anything to help Palestinians in distress US Presidential aspirant, Nikki Haley has put the cat amongst the pigeons by asking some straight questions. She stated, “You're going to hear all those Arab countries vilify Israel for what's about to happen. You're going to hear all of them say, how dare you not do more for the Palestinian people?” and then posed bluntly, “But where are the Arab countries? Where are they? Where is Qatar? Where is Lebanon? Where is Jordan? Where...

    Moral equivalence has two purposes. One is to enable the morally confused to hide their confusion. The other is to enable the immoral to hide their immorality. Here are two examples as applied to the Israeli-Arab conflict: One is the assertion we hear regarding the latest Israel-Hamas war by members of the Western Left, by Muslim supporters of the Palestinians and even by a few individuals on the Right: “Palestinian babies are as precious as Israeli babies.” Professor Cornel West, a lifelong progressive running for president as a Democrat: “As I have said for the past 50 years, a precious...

    Screengrab from a video shot as revellers realize Hamas gunmen are attacking. Girls were raped beside the corpses of their friends. In 2021, we were part of a grassroots team which rescued 400 women from Afghanistan. We have all, together and separately, worked on a range of feminist issues including rape, sex trafficking, honor killing, child marriage, and forced veiling. Together with thousands of other women, we have signed countless petitions and resolutions calling for freedom, justice, and safety for women globally. We cannot understand the feminist silence about what is happening to civilian Israelis in general and to Israeli...

    Israel today released harrowing images of tiny babies who were murdered and burned by Hamas terrorists amid their ruthless attacks this weekend that saw hundreds of Israeli civilians including pregnant women killed in their homes. One appalling image shows the small body of a baby, who couldn't be more than 12 months old, lying on a now bloodied white body bag that is too large for it. The little child's baby grow dotted with flowers is covered in blood after the rampaging terrorists unleashed horrors that defy belief. Another two photographs released by Israel show the blackened and charred bodies...

    Sorry for a vanity, but I can't find any articles with this information. Israel currently has ten Arab members of Knesset. (Their parliament) And I think they've had this many for a while. Most are Muslim, one is Druze, one is Christian, and some are indeterminate. Two of them are women. Muslim: Mansour Abbas Youssef Atauna [This one has two wives, which is against the law in Israel, but I guess he gets away with it.] Iman Khatib-Yasin (Woman) Ayman Odeh (Raised Musim, but secular) Ahmad Tibi Walid Taha Druze: Hamad Amar Christian: Aida Touma-Suleiman (Woman) I couldn't find the...

    The Foreign Affairs Ministry of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) issued a statement Sunday directly condemning the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas for a bloody terror spree that has left over 700 dead since early Saturday, urging the region to avoid following the group toward “nihilistic destruction.” The UAE is one of the world’s wealthiest and most influential explicitly Islamic governments. Abu Dhabi’s condemnation of Hamas and extension of condolences to the majority-Jewish victims of the Hamas rapes, abductions, and massacres on Saturday is a dramatic contrast in tone from neighboring Iran – where the regime threw a street party to...

    Socrates has remained one of the most fascinating characters in the history of philosophy, but did his heritage survive in popular Arab fables too? Socrates is one of the most iconic thinkers of Western philosophy. His thought process was oral, and recounts of his life have survived through others’ writings, notably Plato’s. It is not a coincidence that Socrates did not actually put anything into writing. He never committed to any axiom, except human ignorance, and he created the thought process of “birthing” the truth. Socrates is the epitome of the wise fool. In the ancient world, Greek philosophical schools...

    It would be interesting to see a “moderate Muslim” spokesman in the West, one of the legion who hoodwink conservatives by claiming that Islam, rightly understood, is peaceful and benign, discuss or debate these assertions with Islam Behery, or try to refute what he says here. Instead, they will ignore it. Now, why is that? “Egyptian Researcher Islam Behery: Mainstream Islamic Scholarship Is Radical, Leads To Terrorism – It Seeks To Wage Jihad, Spread Islam,” MEMRI, January 29, 2023: Egyptian researcher Islam Behery said in a January 29, 2023 interview on Sky News Arabia (UAE) that like other fields...
