A report from the front

The Taming of the Jew is a report from the front. We now know that Jew-hatred is bigger than Jeremy Corbyn, bigger than the Labor Party, and that anti-Semitism has infected all of Britain., 2/2/2020, 6:54 AM

When all Jews march together, we shall overcome

New York Jewish liberal organizations are now standing in solidarity with their Orthodox brethren and will march against the hatred behind the rise in antisemitic hate crimes on January 5th. That is the first and crucial step., 1/5/2020, 4:00 AM

I saw the writing in the sky

The word is out. If you hate your life, if you are filled with rage, if you are mentally ill and off your meds—or on them, but they don’t help—you can stab, shoot, sucker punch, and verbally humiliate a visibly Jewish person in public., 1/1/2020, 1:59 PM

Is it too late to clear the antisemitism swamp?

Jewish pioneers cleared the swamps of the Galilee a hundred years ago, hoping naively to be left in peace in their own homeland. But how are we going to clear the swamp of antisemitism that has engulfed the world?, 12/22/2019, 10:28 AM

What kind of Iron Dome can we deploy against the hate in Jersey City?

It’s happening again, not in the same way. Not yet. But this is surely the prelude to the “fire next time.” And it is happenbing anywhere, anywhere at all. , 12/12/2019, 7:04 AM

Why is the NYT allying with Islamists against women?

And who is Noah Feldman? What does choosing him as an expert in the impeachment hearings tell us about the current Democratic Party?, 12/7/2019, 10:39 PM

Pay attention, dreamy-eyed Western do-gooders

A jihadist is not an ordinary prisoner. He is a religious zealot whose mission is to inflict terror into the heart of infidels by murdering civilians, not a poor victim who can be rehabilitated., 12/3/2019, 2:53 PM

The war continues and it is a long war

Can you remember the years when Israelis considered antisemitism a Diaspora issue?, 11/1/2019, 5:58 AM

The silent bystanders in the war against the Jews

Fearfulness, cowardice, avoidance of feared punishment—or silent approval—is precisely how Hitler triumphed., 10/25/2019, 1:41 PM

'Gilead' resembles an Islamic theocracy, not Trump's America

The dystopia in the novels by Margaret Atwood is interpreted by US feminist hate-Trumpers as describing the Trump era, but it is really an accurate description of an Islamic theocracy., 10/6/2019, 9:52 PM

Are we really living in the 1930s?

Is there somewhere a sensitive Jewish soul go to escape it all? Not to new books, theater, talk shows, conferences or any other public venue. Jew and Israel-bashing keeps cropping up everywhere., 7/15/2019, 4:56 AM

The politically correct Quran

The penetration of the feminist and gay movements by pro-Palestine propaganda has borne the poisonous fruit of trees planted by shameless rewriting of history and even the Quran., 7/8/2019, 5:27 PM

They do not care if they go down in history as barbarians

That is what they are and they do not care. They would probably do it again if they could., 6/30/2019, 2:14 PM

"Shall we stand idly by? The rape of Dinah

The Torah tells us how Shimon and Levi dealt with the rape of their sister Dina by the prince of Shechem. They did not kill Dina as the Muslim world does today; they killed Dina's rapist instead--and, for good measure, his entire male family., 6/19/2019, 12:30 PM

I stand by what I wrote on "Palestine"

"Palestine" is a fiction, a concept that refers to an imaginary entity, not real but socially constructed., 6/12/2019, 5:06 PM

Americans are in the midst of a dangerously uncivil Civil War

The anti-Ilhan Omar rally this week was different, because everyone realized that all Jews, even - or especially - the Iran-loving Neturei Karta are in the sights of today's anti-Semites. And that the Democrats are party to it. , 5/21/2019, 11:09 AM

FGM is a crime against humanity

Estimating the number of girls at risk for FGM in the United States leads to an alarming conclusion., 5/19/2019, 12:59 PM

'High-minded culture' is now rife with antisemitism

High-minded well-known literary types have the chattering classes in thrall with Jew hatred which has, octopus-like, permeated every nook and cranny of what was formerly considered “high” culture., 5/16/2019, 12:59 PM

The NYTimes editorial: A clever attempt to gaslight us

I do not think they can easily walk back their own culture of contempt for Prime Minister Netanyahu, for Israel in general, or for the truth in particular when it comes to the Jewish state and the Jewish people., 5/3/2019, 11:06 AM

Netanyahu depicted as a dog is even more ominous than it seems

The story below did not happen in Mecca or Islamabad. It happened in Manhattan., 5/1/2019, 6:23 AM

We find ourselves in a new kind of Egypt - who will lead us to safety?

The Jews and Israel are surrounded by verbal, written and violently genocidal enemies. Who is our Moses, our Aaron, our Miriam?  Who has God appointed to lead us to safety?, 4/15/2019, 7:52 PM

Never look away

A film that captures the nature of both Nazism and Communism—as well as the transcendent and brooding power of Art, Love, and Truth., 4/6/2019, 8:03 PM

All kinds of rockets rain down on Israel

Real rockets are raining down on civilians in Israel, but at the same time, antisemitic rockets are raining down on Jews the world over and there is no respite. Kinda like Heil Hitler in the Nazi era., 3/26/2019, 11:49 PM

I thought the NYTimes couldn't get worse, but it has

The Times is only one example - and a thoroughly reprehensible one - of he rampant, toxic anti-Semitism sweeping the entire world., 3/10/2019, 11:46 PM

Niqab, burqa, hijab - Afghanistan comes to the West

There are women shrouded in burqas, hidden by Niqab, and set apart wearing Hijab on the streets of so many American cities., 3/4/2019, 11:22 PM

The two-faced women who hate Israel - and Jews

Now that she has attacked Elliot Abrams, I wonder where Representative Ilhan Omar stands on the issue of FGM given that she is a Somali-American and the practice is pandemic among Somalis. No one has asked her about it publicly. I am asking her here., 2/15/2019, 12:34 PM

The clever cognitive war strategy deployed against Israel

When it comes to Israel, there are no facts and no objectivity, just clever confusion and demonization over and over until the lies become Holy Doctrine., 1/30/2019, 5:59 PM

Telling the truth about Israel is a new Catch-22 situation

If you tell the truth about Israel or Islam, you will be boycotted by the mainstream/left-stream media, no matter who you are. , 1/28/2019, 1:59 PM

You won't see me at the Women's March - it's a con job

Women’s issues -- even those that are impacted by race, class, religion, and ethnicity -- are still woman-specific, but you won't hear about them at this march. I am in mourning for a vibrant and radical feminist movement. But this is not it. , 1/18/2019, 12:59 PM

Rahaf's Saudi family will never, ever stop coming after her

Jihadist Psychopath: How he is charming, seducing, and devouring us

Jamie Glazov's book shows how Jihad Denial is allowing Military Jihad, Stealth Jihad (via mass immigration), and Institutional Jihad (the takeover of institutions by Islamic supremacists) to destroy the West. No, he is not Islamophobic., 12/12/2018, 7:59 PM

Imaginary "Palestine"

I dare to say, at the risk of being shamed and shunned for telling the truth, that "Palestine" is a fiction, a concept that refers to an imaginary entity, not real but socially constructed., 11/21/2018, 6:35 AM

Heroism is our only option

Israel's fight is indeed a long and ugly war, both on the ground and in terms of propaganda. , 11/14/2018, 10:37 PM

Post-election musings: Whither America? Whither US Jews?

My anti-racist colleagues seem to oppose every racism save one: that of Jew-hatred, aka anti-Semitism, but I bear the DNA of all my relatives whose descendants I never got to meet because they were murdered in pogroms and in the Holocaust. , 11/9/2018, 3:15 PM

How the NYTimes explains anti-Semites away

Double standards and biased coverage, pity for the perpetrators, and disregard for the victims - the NYTimes is right in tune with the anti-Semites among us. , 11/5/2018, 12:00 PM

American Jews have been sleepwalking

In trying so hard not to be "tribal," US Jews did not realize that they are not dealing with logic or anti-Zionism but with the usual anti-Semitic hate and envy - even in the USA., 10/31/2018, 1:30 PM

How I was rejected by Facebook - and won

A little experiment exposed that a mere mortal is hiding behind the Facebook curtain and censoring at will. Here's a foolproof way to get around him., 9/13/2018, 3:57 PM

Obama’s anti-Semitism/anti-Zionism reigned at the IRS from 2010- 2017.

Dancing with death: The Intellectual opposition to Zionism

Some of the opponents of Zionism were great figures, but that did not make them prophets., 12/28/2017, 7:21 AM

Europe's betrayal

If you must, at least turn to the 6 European countries which abstained at the UN vote - not that they have anything to be proud about with their Holocaust record., 12/24/2017, 10:02 AM

Europe, end the double standards!

It's not Islamophobia, it's the truth. Stop the double standards for Muslim crime before it takes over your lives., 12/21/2017, 9:26 AM

Are New Yorkers becoming like Israelis?

It looks as though New Yorkers are becoming as resilient as Israelis in the face o terror. Is terror becoming a fact of life in New York?, 12/12/2017, 8:00 AM

President Trump seized the moment, taking advantage of the new alignments in the Middle East., 12/6/2017, 5:59 PM

They'll try anything: Indoctrinating US children against Israel

Bashi's anti-Israel venom in a children's book caused the shut down of the upper East Side Mommas FB group she belonged to., 11/21/2017, 3:05 PM

I support the women who have accused Tariq Ramadan of assault

This may be the first time in history in which a Muslim cleric or religious leader will be tried in a Western Court of Law: Is the respected scholar and spiritual leader an abusive sexual predator? , 11/6/2017, 12:00 PM

Sutton Place Synagogue: The bloody beast is back

The Sutton Place Synagogue is where my son's family prays and studies. But I have been uneasy for a long time., 10/26/2017, 6:30 PM

Against Faux-Feminists who deny the rights of Muslim Women and Jews

I can tell you that anti-Semitism—Jew-hatred—is not new among feminists. But today, what I call 'faux feminism' is more interested in alleged Israeli 'occupation' than about Muslim honor killings in that same region., 10/4/2017, 4:57 AM

At a meeting of the Cognitive Jewish Warriors

At an evening with well known figures in the Jewish public world, the 'small talk' revolves around the diabolical lies Jews have to face - and the black humor that helps them cope with it., 7/16/2017, 1:38 AM

Has the wandering Jew arrived?

Has the answer to that question changed since Albert Londres asked it in his 1930-31 masterpiece, just reissued by Gefen publishers?, 7/6/2017, 12:15 PM

He only stole a poster, but he was white and so he was murdered for it

Some liberals blamed Warmbier for the barbaric North Korean punishment for his taking a poster, mocking "white privilege." Does that excuse the murders of Daniel Pearl, Nicholas Berg, Margaret Hassan and all the others? , 6/21/2017, 3:47 PM

The quest for honesty about Jews and Israel

We are in the midst of a "revolt against reality," one which turns "perpetrators into heroes" and will not admit to documented facts., 6/11/2017, 7:58 AM

A story of returning

I went a long way and then made my way back., 5/30/2017, 4:36 PM

Who will step forward to defend free speech?

Where is the lawyer who will challenge the silencing - and worse -of anyone who tells the truth about violent aspects of Islam? The professors who will save academia from burying this truth? And the bystanders?, 5/4/2017, 11:51 AM

Being a Zionist is even worse than being an Islamophobe

History no longer exists or professors no longer care about it; objectivity, true facts, clear reasoning, intellectual diversity, the capacity for self-criticism, have been banished from the Western Academy. Be pro-Israel at your peril., 4/26/2017, 2:00 AM

Disaffected Catholics do not call for boycotting the Vatican

Many Catholics disagree with the Vatican, but do not try to delegitimize it. Only American Jews--our precious people, our remaining remnant, launch campaigns against the one-and-only Jewish state. , 3/17/2017, 8:32 AM

Does UJA have a problem with my opinions?

I was disinvited, after the invitations with my name were sent out, to a UJA event at which I was to be an honoree. Perhaps political correctness trumps my fight for women. It certainly trumps free speech., 3/16/2017, 10:15 AM
