Community Security Trust (CST) just confirmed on their blog that the proposed July 4th neo-Nazi demonstration has been relocated by police from Golders Green to central London. CST wrote the following. This [change] will allow […]
Among the Labour mainstream, complacency about Corbyn has been replaced by a rising sense of anger. “He claims he is a socialist, yet the first principle of socialism is supposed to be equality,” says James Bloodworth, editor of the influential Labour website Left Foot Forward. “Is he deluded enough to think that anti-Semitic terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah care a jot for the human rights of women, of gay people and of Jews?”
Asghar Bukhari defends conspiracy theory by citing source popular with those who see ‘Zionist footprints’
Asghar Bukhari, a founding member and spokesperson for the “extremist” and “antisemitic” Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK (MPACUK), recently claimed on Facebook that Zionists broke into his home to steal a shoe, in order to drive him crazy.
The BDS campaign (boycotts, sanctions and divestment) against Israel represents a malevolent, reactionary political force which is antisemitic in effect if not intent, in that it singles out Israel (and only Israel), the […]
We recently commented on a June 15th Guardian report which benignly characterized Jeremy Corbyn MP (who’s competing for Labour Party leadership) as a “leftwinger” despite his well-documented record of support for decidedly reactionary (aka, right-wing […]
The letter that went into the Guardian this week was unusual in having almost nobody sign it who is a household name. The letter was a demand from a group of “artists, producers and concerned citizens,” who, it said, “are disappointed and saddened to see that Curzon, Odeon, Bafta and other cinemas are hosting the London Israeli Film and Television Festival.”
Times of London (The Times) is typically among the more responsible British publications when it comes to covering the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict and the broader issue of antisemtism in the UK. However, they […]
The Guardian has published, before this, praise for several North Korean films, including A Flower Girl. But North Korea is one of the world’s most repressive and dangerous states, governed by a regime that might even make the Ayatollahs of Iran hesitate. So why no letters in The Guardian boycotting their films? Oh, I forgot, nobody ever calls for a boycott of North Korea or any really repressive state
In an official Guardian editorial on June 9th (The Guardian view on President’s Erdogan’s lies: an apology would be welcome) responded to pre-election comments by Turkey’s leader about the Western media. Last […]
The expulsion of Iraq’s Jews occurred due to the rise of Arab nationalism and annihilationist antisemitism in the 40s, 50s and 60s. To suggest, as Snow did, that Jewish life in the country ended as the result of the US-led invasion is completely anti-historical.
Within the radical left British cultural elite, the mere inefficacy of your futile political campaign is no impediment to its survival – at least, that is, as long as there are receptive media […]
“To fight for Israel on the international stage is also to fight for the values of democracy, freedom of speech and expression, and civilized social values everywhere. Unfortunately, the morality and values of the West have been transformed and undermined over the past thirty years almost beyond recognition. Judeo-Christian principles of honesty, honor, loyalty, family values, patriotism, religious faith and respect for the state have all been eroded; whereas negative values, such as the acceptance of betrayal, duplicity and deceit, have flourished. The Western media is chiefly culpable in advancing this deleterious values transformation. And this transformation is the basis for the growth of anti-Jewish and anti-Zionist perspectives, and anti-Israel narratives.” – Col. Richard Kemp
“Orange says it plans to terminate contract with brand partner in Israel“, blared the Guardian headline accompanying a June 4th story written by Jerusalem correspondent Peter Beaumont. Beaumont introduced his story thusly: The French […]
Whilst you can get a good view of Abulhawa’s extremist views in her posts at EI, Mondoweiss and MEMO, which includes support for terrorism, we found it particularly interesting to take a look at her Facebook updates.
Cross posted from the CST The Pew Research Center has published a new poll that, amongst other subjects, asked people in six European countries to say how favourably or unfavourably they view […]
Written by Roslyn Pine and originally published at Jewish News Last Summer the normally undemonstrative British Jewish community delivered a stinging rebuke to its elected representative body, The Board of Deputies of […]
We recently posted about a motion passed by the executive council of the National Union of Students (the confederation of 600 students’ unions in the UK) to boycott Israel – one which, quite remarkably, […]
Last October, a Kurdish student attempted to get the National Union of Students in the UK (NUS) to pass a seemingly uncontroversial motion condemning “Islamic State” for its monstrous record of mass executions, […]
Amanda Holpuch‘s article in the Guardian (Website targets pro-Palestinian students in effort to harm job prospects, May 27) focuses on a new pro-Israel group called Canary Mission, which it darkly refers to […]
It’s been a difficult couple of weeks for “progressive” anti-Zionists. First, Barack Obama, during his interview with Jeffrey Goldberg last week, clearly suggested that denying Israel’s right to exist is antisemitic. More […]
