The growing consensus in Israel for a Jewish-supremacist state and genocidal solution to the Palestinian question is further consolidated in the new far-right coalition.

We don't use the word "fascism" lightly, but the growing consensus in Israel for a Jewish-supremacist state and genocidal solution to the Palestinian question has been further consolidated in the frightening election results.

After 21 years, the investigation into a massive anti-Semitic bombing took another hit when the prosecutor in the case was found dead, right before he was to testify.

The UN hearings on anti-Semitism will certainly enflame anti-Semitism—affording Israel the opportunity for propaganda exploitation, and Jew-haters to exploit the backlash.

This is why UN hearings on anti-Semitism are a very, very bad idea. The General Assembly "informal" conference opened Jan.

India has opted to buy Israel's Spike anti-tank guided missile, beating a rival US deal—an advance for the Tel Aviv-Delhi anti-terror alignment.

India has opted to buy Israel's Spike anti-tank guided missile, a New Delhi defense ministry source told Reuters—evidently rejecting a rival US offer of Javelin missiles that Washington had lobbied hard to win. India is to purchase at least 8,000 Spike missiles and more than 300 launchers in a deal worth 32 billion rupees ($525 million), the source said after a meeting of India&#

Did a war surgeon who published an open letter protesting Israel's war crimes in The Lancet promote a David Duke video, as claimed by an Israeli journalist? We dive into the muck...

We've stated repeatedly: Ritual squawking that "anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism" is just that—an empty ritual bereft of meaning—if we don't call out real anti-Semitism.

Common Dreams website claims to have conducted an investigation revealing that "more than a thousand" anti-Semitic comments posted to the site "were written with deceptive purpose."

The lefty Common Dreams website claims to have conducted an investigation revealing that "more than a thousand" anti-Semitic comments posted to the site over the past two years "were written with a deceptive purpose by a Jewish Harvard graduate in his thirties who was irritated by the website's discussion of iss

Development of the Gaza Marine 1 and 2 offshore blocs has been held up by conflict over the Strip and its waters. Is "Protective Edge" aimed at securing them under Israeli control?

Well, we don't think so either, actually.

The rise of far-right "anti-Europe" parties in the Europarliament elections echoes escalating ultra-nationalist and neo-fascist rhetoric on both sides in the Russo-Ukraine conflict.

The May 24 shooting at the Jewish Museum of Belgium in Brussels, that left three dead, is greeted by the usual ridiculous bet-hedging. CNN typically writes: "The circumstances of the shooting have raised suspicions that it may have been an a

Protests are mounting over a supposedly Islamophobic film to be screened at New York City's newly opened Ground Zero museum—yet few people have actually seen it. What is the truth here?

A new development in the interminable culture wars over New York City's Ground Zero emerges as the site's museum finally opens. We've already noted outrage over the crass commercialism at the museum's souvenir shop (!).

Leaflets distributed in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk, now under occupation by pro-Russian separatists, order Jews to register with the authorities. Real or provocation?

More ominous headlines from Ukraine that only leave us wondering what to believe.

Zionist settlers in Hebron raise a banner reading "Palestine never existed!" This perverse denialism is alas mirrored in much that the "left" is saying about Ukraine.

This is pretty funny.

With urban planners along the Green Line foreseeing the shift of Arab-majority suburbs into the West Bank, Israeli calls for "transfer" of the Palestinians are again mounting.

Israel's ultra-reactionary foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman, a vocal advocate of "transfer" of the Palestinians, stars in a very gloomy analysis in

Nelson Mandela was arrested in 1962 thanks to CIA intelligence, and only removed from the US "terrorist watch list" in 2008—15 years after his Nobel Peace Prize.

With the passing of Nelson Mandela today, Barack Obama of course issued the requisite accolades, hailing the departed icon of South African freedom as "one of the most influential, courageous, and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this Earth... Like so many around the globe, I cannot fully imagine my own life without the example that Nelson Mandela set. And so long as I live I will do what I can to learn from him." (USA Today) Obama's words may well be heartfelt, but the notion that the US stood beside Mandela in the long struggle against apartheid is revisionism that must be combatted.

A new EU study finds "widespread" anti-Semitism on "websites and social media." This blogger only wishes he had a buck for every Jew-baiting slur he's received on the net.

Your trusty blogger, long threatened by Zionist hoodlums for supporting Palestine, now finds out that he has an entry on "Metapedia," the Wikipedia for neo-Nazis.

We always say there's no vindication like getting it from both sides, but this is about as vindicating as it gets. Your trusty blogger has long taken pride that my name appears on the Jewish Self-Hating and/or Israel-Threatening (SHIT) List, compiled by some proverbial Zionist hoodlums who wish to intimidate critics of the settler state. I assume I won this honor through my bloggery, my anti-Zionist website New Jewish Resistance, and my interviews with Palestinian activists on WBAI over the years. It has certinaly been very handy for me—I can trot out this impeccable credential every time some anti-Semite accuses me of being "pro-Zionist" for calling out Jew-hatred. So now I was just pleased to find that I have my own hateful little entry in Metapedia, a sort of Wikipedia for neo-Nazis. (See their flattering entry for Adolf Hitler.) So the next time some Zionist hoodlum accuses me of being "self-hating," I'll know just what to do...

Ron Paul is scheduled to speak at a confab sponsored by a wing of the "Traditionalist" Catholic schism, sharing the bill with Italian neo-fascist leader Roberto Fiore. Still rooting for this reactionary twit?

Ron Paul's connections to the neo-fascist right are already well established, for those who are paying attention. Now it seems his longtime connection to the John Birch Society has led him deeper into the radical right nexus.

I am officially renouncing my Project Censored award over the group's endorsement of an "anti-war" (sic) statement that betrays the Syrian opposition.

The latest statement from the poorly named United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC) is entitled "No more wars—US out of the Middle

Until Alice Walker repudiates David Icke's fascistic conspiranoia, she isn't doing the Palestinians any favors by speaking on their behalf.

Man, it just gets worse every damn day.
