After Temple Mount ‘Victory,’ Arabs Set Sights on Western Wall

editor 17 August 2017

By Andrew Friedman.. Palestinians and Arab MKs declared ‘victory’ Tuesday (July 25, 2017) as Israel reversed security measures at the Temple Mount, and said their struggle for control over the compound also extends to the Western Wall. MK Taleb Abu Arar (Joint List) stressed that “Jews have no rights at al-Aqsa Mosque,” and added that Muslims’ fight against Israel would continue, regardless of the cabinet decision to remove metal detectors from the entrances to the Temple Mount compound.

Seeking justice, brother of Sarah Halimi sees ‘warning’ for French Jews in grisly slaying

editor 28 July 2017

By Raoul Wootliff.. In family’s first major interview, William Attal says he can ‘no longer stay silent’ over his sister’s brutal killing by a Muslim neighbor in April 2017, fumes at police refusal to acknowledge it was an anti-Semitic crime. PARIS — The killing of French Jew Sarah Halimi and subsequent efforts to deny its anti-Semitic motives represent a turning point for France’s Jewish community and must seen as a “warning sign” of the country’s changing attitudes towards Jews.

The Anti-Israel Agenda

editor 27 July 2017

By Matthew Thorn.. Review of The Anti-Israel Agenda – Inside the Political War on the Jewish State. Author: Alex Ryvchin.

Background reference from the website’s editor: The book is edited and co-written by Alex Ryvchin and brings together the finest minds devoted to the question of Israel, including Alan Dershowitz, Colonel Richard Kemp, Alan Johnson and Hillel Neuer to uncover the latest campaign to destroy the Jewish State. The basic thesis is that undeterred by the failure of conventional war and terrorism to drive the Jewish people from their land, Israel’s foes now seek to politically isolate and economically cripple the State until it can no longer defend its interests or its people.

Denial: The Labour Party’s Antisemitism

editor 10 July 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. David Hirsh’s must-see video, Whitewashed: Antisemitism in the Labour Party (which you can view below) starts with a truly shocking clip of Jeremy Corbyn speaking. Having referred to the profoundly anti-Jewish, murderous terrorist organisations Hezbollah and Hamas as his “friends”, he says (of either or both): “The idea that an organisation that is dedicated towards the good of the Palestinian people and bringing about long term peace and social justice, and political justice, in the whole region should be labelled a terrorist organisation by the British government is a big, big historical mistake”.

Britain United Against Terrorism And Hate? It’s A Lie

editor 30 June 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. As reported here, a study by the University of Oslo has found that most anti-Jewish violence in France, Sweden, Germany and the UK is committed by Muslim extremists. This is all the more striking considering that Muslims currently make up only relatively small proportions of the populations of these countries. Scarcely less notable (though no surprise to some of us) is that left-wing violence was the next largest category of anti-Jewish attacks, with right-wing violence trailing into insignificance. Only in Germany were right-wing attacks more numerous than left-wing ones, and then by a relatively small margin. (more…)

Jewish Voice for Peace’s Hidden Agenda

editor 6 June 2017

By Rebecca Zagorsky.. When starting a political movement, choosing the right name is perhaps the most important step. We tend to make snap decisions about whether or not to support an organization based on what its name implies. The danger, of course, is that an organization can misrepresent itself with false connotations. Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) has done just that, because the group does not represent the views of most Jews — and it does not stand for peace.

editor 1 June 2017

By Ben Cohen.. As further details emerge of the brutal murder of an Orthodox Jewish woman in a Paris suburb at the hands of a Muslim assailant last month, French Jews are increasingly worried and angered by what one prominent member of the community called an “organized silence” surrounding the case.

Dr. Sarah Halimi — a 66-year-old pensioner living in the Paris suburb of Belleville — was murdered in the early hours of April 4 by Kada Traore, a 27-year-old immigrant from Mali.
