Grappling with the roots of anti-Semitism after Pittsburgh
It is a tremendous mistake to assume that anti-Semitism arises from any political activity or ideology. It is a pathology based on the wish to exterminate the Jewish people—a moral and spiritual sickness unique in human history.
The story behind the story of Jamal Khashoggi
Whatever Khashoggi’s political views, it remains wrong to kill, muzzle or jail dissidents. Saudi Arabia remains a repressive tribal society and the original source of the Sunni Islamist extremism that now plagues the world.
The full-scale unraveling of Western cultural norms
Israel is falsely accused of crimes such as murderous aggression, colonialism and occupation of which it is not only innocent, but is in fact the victim or target. Those who call out such lies are themselves denounced as being beyond the pale for doing so.
The blood of slain Israelis stains many hands
Ari Fuld and the thousands of other Israeli victims of Arab attacks were murdered out of a fathomless hatred of Jews and Jewish nationhood, aided and abetted in the West by the ignorant, the ideological and the bigoted.
Why Jews now find themselves in the eye of the Western storm
Only when the enormity of the Holocaust was finally revealed after the war did hatred of Jews become unsayable. It went underground—until the left’s adoption of the Palestinian narrative made it sayable again.
Israel gets it right on the nation-state, while the West fumbles with identity
Jews are also commanded in the Torah not to wrong or oppress a stranger “for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.” But what if the strangers in question want to turn your own country into Egypt?
Britain’s Brexit betrayal may push Jewish problem into Downing Street
Most of the anti-Semitism on the left takes the form of obsessive and paranoid falsehoods, distortion and double standards directed at the behavior of the State of Israel, with much of this onslaught echoing the imagery and tropes of medieval and Nazi anti-Semitism.
Wishful thinking isn’t enough when it comes to Mideast peace
The key point that the West cannot grasp is that Palestinian rejectionism is at source a fanatical Islamic religious movement.
Heads turn away when it comes to the Islamization of Europe
In lockstep with a refusal to acknowledge that Islamic religious fanaticism is Islamic, anti-Semitism is once more openly stalking Britain and Europe.
Europe makes an about-face on Israel
So what’s changed? Well, first of all, the situation on the ground.
At the Israel border, pointing fingers at the wrong abuser
Why the refusal to acknowledge that Israel is the victim of Arab and Muslim exterminatory violence?
The Mossad’s stupendous achievement in Tehran
The Iranians now know that, in obtaining this most closely guarded information, the Mossad penetrated the innermost sanctums of the Iranian security apparatus.
An open letter to the Muslim world
If you finally were to decide to end your war against us in Israel, finally decide that you love your children more than you hate us, finally decide that instead of trying to destroy Israel you want it to help you accommodate to modernity, you will find our hands extended in friendship.
Labour as a party to the hard left
They are behaving as if this anti-Semitism thing has arrived like a thunderbolt out of a clear blue sky.
Globalism is not a Jewish concept
It is quite wrong to believe that attachment to the nation—and the desire to uphold and defend its values—is somehow inimical to a broad and generous view of the world.
