A must-read: Bari Weiss decries wokeness, anti-Semitism at Tablet

I’m not sure whether Bari Weiss has a new, permanent gig at Tablet Magazine, but her latest big article is there (see below). While Tablet may seem a comedown from the New York Times—where she was hectored by her colleagues so relentlessly that she left—Tablet has had some good stuff, including scoops. It broke the […]

Facebook considers Holocaust denial as “hate speech”, removes it from the site

Facebook’s Vice-President for Content Policy has posted a new notice saying that, as part of the firm’s fight against “hate speech,” they’re removing any content that “denies or distorts the Holocaust.” Click on the screenshot to see the full announcement: An excerpt: Today we are updating our hate speech policy to prohibit any content that […]

The New York Times describes Hitler’s Nazis as “anti-Zionists”

I’m sure some readers will feel that the New York Times‘s description of Nazis—and of the rabid anti-Semite Grand Mufti Amin al-Husseini—as mere “anti-Zionists”, is an innocuous description.  But I don’t think so. I think it’s an attempt to rewrite history and, at the same time, defuse some criticisms of Palestine made by a Saudi […]

CUNY anti-Semite defended by University for assaulting student wearing an IDF tee-shirt

Nerdeen Kiswani, a student of Palestinian descent at the City University of New York (CUNY) Law School, is a nasty piece of work. According to articles in the New English Review and stopantisemitism.org, Kiswani, as President of the anti-Semitic organization Students for Justice in Palestine, has celebrated terrorists who killed Israeli civilians, herself celebrated the death […]

The execrable behavior of the Catholic Church during World War II

I won’t dwell on this for long, but though I’d call to your attention this new article in The Atlantic about the behavior of the Catholic Church during World War II. It concentrates, though, on the story of how two Jewish children whose parents died in Auschwitz were forcibly baptized by the Church, which, under […]

The Biden campaign repudiates Linda Sarsour

It’s been over two years since I wrote about Linda Sarsour, the odious anti-Semite and ousted head of the Women’s March, and believe me, I don’t miss her. She used to feature on this site quite often (see the collection of posts here), but she’s not in the limelight any more—not after having “resigned” from […]

Head of Philadelphia NAACP reproduces vile anti-Semitic trope, refuses to apologize

Rodney Muhammad is president of the Philadelphia branch of the NAACP, though he might not be for long.  After his latest bit of bigotry, though, I am not calling for him to be fired—an apology would be nice, though—but many are. According to several stories, including two in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Muhammad tweeted a trope […]

Republican Senator appears to have stretched the nose of his Jewish opponent

I resisted the claim, made in the Forward article below, that Republican senator David Perdue (GA) used a deliberate anti-Semitic trope to demonize his Jewish opponent in this fall’s election, Jon Ossoff, who interned as a high schooler with John Lewis. Click to read the article: In a campaign ad on Facebook, shown below, Ossoff […]

Lying liars promote false information about Israel, pretending that a photo from Chile shows Palestinian resistance

A common way to attack Israel is to disseminate fictitious photographs on social media, photographs that pretend to show Israeli malfeasance but often show something completely different. And the photos are often, as in this case, not even from Israel. The article below, taken from India Today, reports on a striking photograph purporting to show […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ The Protocols

In this week’s Jesus and Mo strip, “climes”, Moses is finally leaving his quarantine with the boys. But as a parting shot, he pulls Mo’s leg. Moses is of course referring to the infamous Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a Russian Tsarist anti-Semitic forgery describing a Jewish plan for world domination. (You can find […]
