Spain: The “Most Anti-Semitic Country in Europe”

Spain: The “Most Anti-Semitic Country in Europe” – ‘Spain emerged as one of the most anti-Semitic countries in the European Union in 2010, and the Spanish government has done nothing about it, according to the authors of an annual report that tracks anti-Semitic violence on the Iberian Peninsula.

The Zionist Barometer

The Syrians, Bahrainis, Jordanians and Yemenis are marching against their dictators in order to – let’s not kid ourselves – replace them with dictators from a tribe or sect of Islam they like better. The Libyans are fighting a civil war that apparently every single Westerner, including yours truly, is too stupid to understand and […]

Alan Dershowitz: Norway’s “Boycott” of Pro-Israel Speakers

Alan Dershowitz: Norway’s “Boycott” of Pro-Israel Speakers – ‘…My hosts expected…that their offer to have me present a somewhat different academic perspective on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would be eagerly accepted, since I have written half a dozen books on the subject presenting a centrist view in support of the two-state solution and against civilian settlements […]

Two Helen Thomas Farces: What She Says and How She’s Ridiculed

It’s amazing how bad the public discussion of issues is nowadays. Here’s a tiny example. Helen Thomas was fired for her anti-Jewish statements and was recently interviewed in Playboy where she made more such remarks that are–correctly–being interpreted as antisemitic. But why does Thomas hate Israel so much, a hatred that spills over into antisemitism? […]

The other day my son remarked that TV reports of Syrian protests showed protesters shouting “Alawi Jews.” As you may know, the Assad family which has ruled Syria since 1971 belongs to a small minority Islamic sect, the Alawis (or ‘Alawites’). About 75% of Syrians are Sunni Muslims, and many do not even consider the […]

It’s a controversy replaying itself all over the country. Tension between the funding choices of some of the people — often politically far left and anxious to demonstrate it — holding the purse-strings and the hoi polloi.

Juden Raus – The Board Game

judenraus

Googling around the other day I happened upon this little slice of history: Juden Raus, a board game. Published in Nazi Germany in 1936, a year after passage of the Nuremberg Laws, the game is a sort of Parcheesi for mental defectives. BoardGameGeek describes it as: A sort of amalgam of Monopoly and Halma, where […]

Adam Holland has been trawling through the WikiLeaks material and found some interesting material about, of all things, Holocaust denier David Irving.

Beware the Other Tsunami – of Jew-Hatred

The murder of the Fogel family in their beds and the sexual assault of the non-Jewish reporter Lara Logan in Tahrir Square to the screams of ‘Jew! Jew!’ are just two examples of an unparalleled tsunami of hate sweeping over the Arab and Muslim world. It’s a tsunami which, unless taken seriously, will eventually also […]

Pakistan Has A Problem With Jews

Pakistan Has A Problem With Jews – ‘Sure, we already knew that. But the sheer scale of societal and state-sanctioned anti-Semitism has led to deep conspiracy theories among Pakistanis that could give Iran’s Press TV a run for it’s money.

Seven Jewish Children, revisited: Anthony Julius responds to Caryl Churchill and the Guardian

I haven’t read some of the more chilling anti-Semitic lines in Caryl Churchill’s play, Seven Jewish Children – which is posted to this day on the Guardian’s website – in quite a while.
