The West’s Antisemitism Crisis

editor 13 September 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. Antisemitism is now a major issue in the West. In Britain, there are continuing convulsions over rampant antisemitism in the Labour Party. In America, there was outrage over the presence of the virulent Jew-hater Louis Farrakhan at Aretha Franklin’s funeral. In France and other European countries, Jews are under siege from violent Muslims. The really disturbing thing, though, is that so many are not outraged by this.

AIPAC loses the script

editor 11 September 2018

By Caroline Glick.. By the time the British Labour Party finally bowed to public pressure and adopted the full definition of antisemitism determined by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance on Wednesday (September 5, 2018), the move was no longer meaningful. After a summer of insisting that it’s okay to say Zionism is Nazism and that Zionists have no sense of irony, no one is so deluded as to believe that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn or his supporters are anything but Jew-hating bigots.

UK Jewish Community Leaders Lose The Plot on Antisemitism, Hate and Lies

editor 30 August 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. The Jewish community leadership has been pleading with the Labour Party to deal properly with antisemitism and become again the party of moral decency. Surely no-one in the Jewish leadership believes this will happen? Even if the party adopts the full International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition, does anyone really think its antisemitism will then go away?

Time To Leave? The Question The Jews of Britain and Europe Must Ponder

editor 20 August 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. These are alarming times for Jews in Britain and Europe. The British Labour Party is convulsed over the realization that it is riddled with antisemitism. Jeremy Corbyn, its leader and a friend to Hamas, has been exposed as belonging to Facebook groups hosting claims that the Jews were behind ISIS and 9/11, that the Rothschilds controlled the world’s finances and other such paranoid theories. The backwash from the exposure of these groups revealed a tsunami of anti-Jewish insults, smears and libels by Labour supporters. Corbyn’s responses, often truculent and insulting to the Jewish community, have only deepened the crisis. (more…)

editor 28 July 2018

Orban: Antisemitism Rising In Western Europe, Declining In Eastern Europe

editor 26 July 2018

By Herb Keinon.. The Hungarian leader said Budapest has ‘zero tolerance’ to antisemitism, and that Jews in Hungary live in security. Carrying signs reading “Never Again,” “Shame on you,” and “Every tyrant has a Yad Vashem,” several dozen protesters briefly blocked the motorcade of visiting Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban when he left Yad Vashem Thursday (July 19, 2018). Orban, seen as a symbol of a sharp rightward turn in parts of Europe and as someone who has fanned the flames of antisemitism in Hungary by saluting World War II Hungarian leader Miklos Horthy and by his continuous attacks on Hungarian-born Jewish financier George Soros, had just toured the Yad Vashem Museum and laid a wreath in the Hall of Remembrance.

Iceland, Israel, and the Jews: A Largely Negative History

editor 24 July 2018

By Manfred Gerstenfeld.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 888, July 10, 2018.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Whenever the media mention Iceland in the context of Israel, it is usually to report negative news. It is difficult to find in Iceland’s history more than one substantial occasion when it played a positive role for Israel. There have been many cases of anti-Semitism in Iceland over the centuries. Every year, during the Lent period before Easter, 17th century hymns full of hatred for the Jews are read out daily by distinguished citizens and broadcast on Iceland’s public radio station. [Picture top right: Christians for Israel International].

When people don’t support Israel they are supporting this

editor 19 July 2018

By Leah Rosenberg.. The media will flood your brain with reasons why you shouldn’t support Israel. But the truth is, the alternative is supporting terrorism. Israel wants peace. It’s a message that needs to be shared. Because if you only watch what the mainstream media shows you, you would never know that Israel is “the good guy.” They say Israelis are the “occupiers,” “killers,” “murderers,” and any other name that labels them as something evil.
