Addressing the antisemitism scandal which continues to engulf the British Labour Party, the Guardian published an article today by Harriet Sherwood on the row titled ‘Corbyn’s Labour must be more decisive on […]
h/t Sussex Friends of Israel Recently elected NUS President Malia Bouattia was asked by Channel 4 News presenter Cathy Newman last night to clarify her views on Zionism, boycotts and Palestinian terrorism – […]
Though Bouittia claimed in her op-ed that she’s “not an extremist”, she didn’t even address clear evidence that she supports terror attacks by violent extremists.
Pesach is the oldest and most transformative story of hope ever told. It tells of how an otherwise undistinguished group of slaves found their way to freedom from the greatest and longest-lived […]
An April 20th Guardian report on Britain’s National Union of Students (NUS) election was titled ‘NUS elects first female black Muslim president after tense contest’. However, the report by Jessica Elgot fails […]
An article by Raf Sanchez in the Telegraph on the terror attack in Jerusalem on Monday (Jerusalem bus bomb – at least 20 injured in explosion, April 19th). The article included the claim […]
The suggestion by Mr. Greenstein that his being Jewish should inculcate him from charges of antisemitism – which evidently seemed plausible to Times of London editors – is of course absurd.
The broad charge that Jews are ethnically cleansing Arabs (Palestinians or otherwise) in the Middle East, based on the numbers, represents the opposite of the truth. In the territory where Jews rule or have ruled in some manner since 1948 the Arab population has increased dramatically, while territories in the region where Arabs rule (representing over 99% of the total land) have slowly become either nearly or completely Judenrein.
Antisemitism is bad for Jews, obviously, but it is also bad for antisemites. It renders them stupid, impotent and unable to overcome their real problems. Arguing that Muslims working to reduce anti-Muslim hatred should not cooperate with Jews who have experience in tackling antisemitism is a perfect example.
The historical distortions about Zionism advanced by Karl Sabbagh in his April 10th Guardian letter aren’t at all surprising when you consider that he enthusiastically endorsed and wrote a blurb for Gilad Atzmon’s ‘The Wandering Who?’, a book characterized by the CST as “one of the most antisemitic books to be published in several years”.
The Guardian, as part of their “series on the rising global phenomenon of online harassment”, commissioned research into the over 70 million comments left on its site since 2006, and concluded that articles […]
So, the question remains. Did the Irish Times accurately report what Baboun said and inadvertently pass on misinformation to its readers, or did the paper get it wrong and introduce the misinformation into the story on its own?
It’s more than a tad ironic that the head of an organization putatively devoted to the primacy of rational, fact-based discourse would embrace the political and moral equivalent of an ancient religious superstition.
Cherry-picking quotes of the leader of that government – which buttresses the desired narrative of an op-ed – represents exactly the kind of tendentious, misleading and agenda-driven coverage of the conflict which has earned the media group so much deserved notoriety over the years
The key question facing the European Left is whether or not it can change in such a way that Jews can once again feel part of the Left’s political family. Unfortunately, for the foreseeable future the answer to that question appears to be no.
Earlier today, we posted about a misleading Guardian headline, which seemed to suggest that Israeli sponsorship of a literary festival was rejected by the PEN American Center due to a letter signed […]
In an article published in the books section of their website, the Guardian did what it always does – amplifying the efforts of marginal, extremist anti-Israel bigots who wish to completely boycott, […]

The latter improvement in editorial decisions, regarding rhetoric and imagery about Jews and Judaism historically associated with antisemitism, occurred both as the result of our relentless naming and shaming of Guardian contributors who expressed such Judeophobic views, and at least two important decisions by the paper’s readers’ editor which had the effect of institutionally delegitimizing these narratives.
We recently came across an article in The Herald (of Scotland) by former MSP Colin Campbell, titled ‘The power keg that is East Jerusalem‘, which recounts his tour of Jerusalem as part […]
