The self-proclaimed "Supporters of the Islamic State in Jerusalem" issued a 48-hour ultimatum for the Hamas administration to halt its crackdown on the group in Gaza.
The self-proclaimed "Supporters of the Islamic State in Jerusalem" on June 2 issued a 48-hour ultimatum for the Hamas administration to halt its crackdown on the group in the Gaza Strip, although it made no explicit threat of action if the deadline is not met. The militants also claimed responsibility for a rocket fired at Israel from
Did Argentina's President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner strike a secret deal with Tehran to cover up Iran's role in a terror attack in exchange for gauatntees of oil imports?
Organizers are claiming that up to half a million marched in the pouring rain in Buenos Aires Feb. 18 to demand justice in the case of Alberto Nisman, the prosecutor who was found dead in his apartment Jan.
Air-strikes on landmark civilian buildings during Israel's Gaza campaign in August amounted to war crimes, Amnesty International charges in a new report.
Air-strikes on landmark buildings at the tail end of the Israeli military's "Operation Protective Edge" in Gaza in August were a deliberate and direct attack on civilian buildings and amount to war crimes, Amnesty International charges in a new report.
Elie Wiesel asks the world to stand with "the people of Israel" in their "struggle for survival"—but only those in Gaza "who reject terror and embrace peace."
Elie Wiesel—yet again—seems to find himself on the wrong side, this time in a full-page ad he took out in US newspapers (PDF), problematicallly entitled: "Jews rejected child sacrifice 3,500 years ago.
Two synagogues were attacked in Paris and the rabbi of the Casablanca Jewish community brutally beaten in reprisals for Israel's "Operation Protective Edge."
The Abravanel synagogue in central Paris is under police guard after more than 100 youths tried to storm the building July 13, chanting "Israel murderer!" The incident—near Bastille Place, on the eve of Bastille Day—followed a march protesting the Israeli air-strikes on Gaza.
Greta Berlin of the Free Gaza Movement appears to have been caught in an egregious anti-Semitic faux pas. The responses fall into the usual three broad categories: principled repudiation, cynical exploitation, and kneejerk rallying around the perpetrator...
Here we go again. Greta Berlin of the Free Gaza Movement appears to have been caught in an egregious anti-Semitic faux pas.
The Judeophobic filth that has appeared on MondoWeiss needs to be called out. But once again—why is it only neocon propagandists who will take it on? When will the anti-fascist and anti-Zionist left step up to the plate?
Here we go again. We ourselves have noted before the insidious mainstreaming of anti-Semitism in "progressive" discourse by the likes of the execrable MondoWeiss blog.
Some anti-Zionists seem to think having Neturei Karta on their side inoculates them against charges of anti-Semitism. Hopefully, after the latest incident at Israel's Holocaust museum, they are disabused of such illusions.
Every other day on my Facebook wall, some earnest anti-Zionist posts a photo like the one above of Neturei Karta in their ultra-orthodox garb wielding anti-Israel placards. The posters think that having these guys with their beards and peyas on their side inoculates them against charges of anti-Semitism.
When "Zionism" is blamed for the ills of the global capitalist system, you know the writer is taking his cue from the Protocols—even if he is ostensibly coming from the "left." Pointing this out is not a defense of Zionism.
We have, of course, repeatedly pointed out that—however much Zionists may propagandistically abuse the charge—anti-Semitism (veiled, barely veiled, or plain old blatant) really is evidenced in much ostensibly "leftist" discourse these days.
In the wake of last month's kill-spree in southern France, lines across the blogosphere are drawn predictably, indicating the near-complete polarization and lack of any dialectical spark in contemporary thinking on the question of anti-Semitism.
Here we go, yet again. In the wake of last month's kill-spree in southern France, lines across the blogosphere are drawn predictably, indicating the near-complete polarization and lack of any dialectical spark in contemporary thinking on the question of anti-Semitism.
What the hell are Dennis Bernstein and Michael Lerner doing by embracing an open Jew-hater with a website full of Holocaust revisionism and anti-Semitic tropes? Has the "left" hit bottom yet? Has it completely abandoned progressive values?
Here we go again. "Flashpoints," Dennis Bernstein's longstanding show on Berkeley's "progressive" KPFA Radio on Feb.
There are doubtless many good reasons to oppose Henrique Capriles Radonski, the bourgeois politician who is challenging Hugo Chávez for Venezuela's presidency. His Jewish background is equally assuredly not among them.
It is really, really a drag to have to do this, but we really have no choice.
"Anonymous" attacked the website of the neo-Nazi outfit American Third Position, splashing internal e-mails on the group's homepage—to reveal that the "A3P" white supremacists are a well integrated into Ron Paul's political machine!
Us old-school lefties have been wondering for a quite some time, which is more annoying—the legions of "Anonymous" hacktivists who think that faceless adventurism is the cutting-edge of revolution, or Ron Paul supporters who think that this ultra-reactionary Republ
The Zionist propaganda machine is having a field day with the latest call from the Mufti of Jerusalem to "fight the Jews"—as Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman continues to call for "transfer."
