https://twitter.com/DSchwammenthal/status/939393450067324930

Jew-hatred in Berlin: Chanting demonstrators, anti-Jewish slogans at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, burned sheets with star of David on it. The protest was the U.S. decision on the relocation of the Embassy to West Jerusalem. 12/8/2017

“Khaybar Khaybar, ya yahud, Jaish Muhammad, sa yahud.” Translation: "Jews remember Khaybar. the army of Muhammad is returning”



Text for those w/o Twitter:

Brandenburg Gate, where SS once marched, again scene of anti-Semitic incitement. Translation: "Jews remember Khaybar, the army of Muhammad is returning." An Islamist, anti-Jewish battle cry, refers to Muhammad's destruction of ancient Jewish community in Khaybar, near Medina.

Man holding Palestinian flag smashes windows of Amsterdam kosher restaurant

The AT5 television station showed a video of the incident, in which a man holding a Palestinian flag and wearing a Palestinian keffiyah on his head smashes the window and kicks down the restaurant’s doors as passersby and two police officers look on. The officers wait until he breaks into the restaurant. They pause as he returns to the street from the restaurant’s interior holding an Israeli flag that he took from there. He throws it at their feet. They then overpower the man and arrest him.

Contacted by JTA, an employee at HaCarmel declined to comment on the circumstances of the incident, which the Federative Jewish Netherlands group reported online with a pictures of a Dutch police officer kneeling in front of a shattered glass window, with a Star of David hanging on the restaurant’s wall in the background.

Herman Loonstein, who heads Federative Jewish Netherlands, said the incident at HaCarmel happened when no patrons were inside the restaurant and ended without injury. “But it is nonetheless an attack, a terrorist attack, carried out by a man whose behavior was that of a terrorist,” he told JTA.

Proves that antisemitism and anti-Zionism go hand in hand.

BDS Activists infiltrated ASA Leadership. boycotted the Jewish state. It wasnt by popular demand

Emails unearthed in a federal lawsuit appear to show that the American Studies Association’s decision to boycott Israel was orchestrated by a small cadre of academics who infiltrated the ASA’s leadership to demonize the Jewish state.

The ASA website says the scholarly group “promotes the development and dissemination of interdisciplinary research on U.S. culture and history in a global context,” but in December 2013 it endorsed an academic boycott of Israel. The ASA’s leadership, called the National Council, backed the boycott resolution and put it to a membership vote. A third of the members voted, and two-thirds of those endorsed the resolution.

Last year four ASA members sued the organization, alleging the boycott violated its bylaws, the District of Columbia Nonprofit Corporation Act, and laws prohibiting nonprofits from exceeding their chartered purposes. Even putting legality aside, the boycott was out of step with the principle of academic freedom. The boycott generated an immediate rebuke from the executive council of the Association of American Universities.

The ASA sought to have the suit thrown out, arguing that legal challenges violate the group’s First Amendment rights—a claim commonly made by Israel boycotters. A federal judge rejected that argument in March and allowed the case to proceed.

A central figure in the boycott’s adoption was Jasbir Puar, an associate professor of women’s and gender studies at Rutgers University, according to emails cited in a public filing by the plaintiffs in the case. The emails appear to show that after joining the ASA’s nominating committee in 2010, Ms. Puar actively tried to stack the National Council with boycott backers.

Art school apologizes after student hangs giant swastika image in central hall. London.

A leading art school has apologised after a swastika was hung from its central hall.

Central Saint Martins University of the Arts London said a student had displayed a large red banner with the Nazi symbol, as part of an installation, despite being forbidden to do so by his tutor and by Professor Jeremy Till, the principal of the university.

One Jewish student was “shocked” to see the Nazi symbol as she made her way to class.

“There was nothing around it that explains that it is part of any sort of installation. It looks so isolated and shocking. It is disgusting. It isn’t art.

The majority of people around were not even taking on board that this was horrific. People were laughing and joking,” she said.

Swastikas & anti-Semitism rife on Britain campuses. Holocaust Denial Literature being distributed.

Anti-Semitism is so entrenched in many of Britain's universities that the swastika is now seen on campus as a 'casual symbol of fun', MPs heard last night.

Parliament heard a litany of 'horrifying' examples of anti-Jewish hatred at universities, including the distribution of Holocaust denial literature.

At one university, police had to be called to protect Jewish students from the 'animalistic behaviour' of anti-Israel activists.

Student officers have also used the Twitter hashtag #Jew while discussing wealth, while swastikas have been drawn on people's cars, on the walls of student halls and even at student parties.

The appalling stories were recounted at a meeting of the all-party parliamentary group on anti-Semitism.

During the session shadow education secretary Angela Rayner admitted that Labour had not done enough to tackle hatred of Jews in its ranks.

And she said she would be challenging Jeremy Corbyn to explain why he had caused such 'upset' by attending the book launch of an anti-Semitic author last year.

'We need to prove we are not anti-Semitic as a party,' she said.

FBI: Jews Subject to 54% of Religiously Motivated Hate Crimes, Despite Being Just 2% of Population.

Today, the FBI released its annual report on hate crimes for the previous calendar year. As has been the case since the bureau began collecting these figures in 1992, Jews were again found to be the chief target of religiously motivated hate crimes. Despite constituting just two percent of the American population, Jews were subject to 54.4 percent of such attacks.

At the same time, as the Anti-Defamation League noted, “the greatest increase in religious-based crimes was those against Muslims; they increased 19 percent from 2015 to 2016.” In total, Muslims were the victims of 24.5 percent of religiously-motivated crimes, the next highest total after Jews, though this figure does not take into account the 1.3 percent of anti-Arab crimes which may also have been Islamophobic in nature.

As can be seen in the chart below, the above two trends—the depressingly consistent targeting of Jews above all and the spike in anti-Muslim hate—have been constant for decades:

Prince Charles' Letter From 1986 Blamed "influx of foreign Jews" for Unrest in Middle East

A letter penned by Prince Charles in 1986 blamed the "influx of foreign Jews" for tension in the Middle East, and asked the U.S. president to stand up to the "Jewish lobby," reported the Daily Mail.

Prince Charles has come under fire for the letter, with some calling the usage of the phrase "Jewish lobby" anti-Semitic. Stephen Pollard, editor of the British Jewish Chronicle, wrote that the term has been used by anti-Semites for centuries and called the letter "jaw-droppingly shocking."

The letter's text reads, "I now appreciate that Arabs and Jews were all a Semitic people originally and it is the influx of foreign, European Jews (especially from Poland, they say) which has helped to cause great problems. I know there are so many complex issues, but how can there ever be an end to terrorism unless the causes are eliminated? Surely some U.S. president has to have the courage to stand up and take on the Jewish lobby in U.S.? I must be naive, I suppose!"

The letter, which surfaced in a public archive on Sunday, was written to Afrikaner explorer Laurens van der Post and discussed Prince Charles' understanding of the Middle East

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri resigns, accusing Hezbollah of taking the country hostage

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri resigned from his post in a televised address from the Saudi capital Saturday, accusing Hezbollah of taking the country hostage, in a surprise move that plunged the nation into uncertainty amid heightened regional tensions.

In his resignation speech, Hariri fired a vicious tirade against Iran and its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah group for what he said was their meddling in Arab affairs and said that “Iran’s arms in the region will be cut off.”

“The evil that Iran spreads in the region will backfire on it,” Hariri said, accusing Tehran of spreading chaos, strife and destruction throughout the region.

Hariri was appointed prime minister in late 2016 and headed a 30-member coalition government that included members of the Shiite militant Hezbollah. But it’s been an uneasy partnership between Hariri, who heads a Sunni-led camp loyal to Saudi Arabia, and Hezbollah, which represents a camp loyal to Shiite Iran. President Michel Aoun, who was elected in October 2016 after more than a two-year presidential vacuum, is a close ally of Hezbollah.

Background: Saad's father Rafic, was Prime Minister of Lebanon in the 90's and 2000-4. He resigned and was assassinated soon thereafter.

Pizza delivery driver blinded in both eyes. Acid attack in UK.

Muhammed Nawshad Kamal, 32, is likely to lose his sight after the vicious attack in Walthamstow, east London.

The teenagers, who were riding their own moped, tried to steal his £2,500 scooter before carrying out an almost identical acid attack 30 minutes later.

Last night police were interviewing a 14-year-old boy arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.

Mr Kamal, who has lived in Britain for eight years after moving here from Bangladesh, had just dropped off a pizza when he was approached by two teenagers who demanded the keys to his scooter at 6pm on Thursday.

When he refused, he was sprayed with acid. Screaming in agony, Mr Kamal desperately banged on the door of the house he had just delivered to. But his customers refused to open the door while his attackers continued to drench him in acid on their doorstep.

They need to be tried as adults and be jailed for life. There is no reforming anyone this evil.

Andrew Neil brands left-wing antisemitism a 'dangerous trend' in Holocaust Educational speech.

BBC presenter Andrew Neil has said that antisemitism on the far-left is now a "more dangerous" trend in the UK than the extremism of the "knuckle dragging" far-right.

Delivering the keynote speech at the annual Holocaust Educational Trust dinner in central London, the Daily Politics show host also launched a scathing attack on Ken Livingstone for "intentionally" attempting to link Zionism with Nazi Germany.

The former Sunday Times editor told the audience, which included Home Secretary Amber Rudd, Culture Secretary Sajid Javid and former Labour shadow chancellor Ed Balls, that there had always been "a strain of antisemitism" which ran through "parts of the British intellectual left."

But turning his attention to the Mr Livingstone he said: "We have the former Labour Mayor of this city intentionally linking Zionism and Germany in the 1930s based on the ramblings of an obscure Trotskyite historian.

"There can be no bigger insult to link Zionism with Nazi Germany. We know what he was doing, it is clear as night follows day. But he is still regarded a respectable politician in this country."

Mr Neil cited the recent Labour Party conference in Brighton as example of where antisemitism was allowed to enter mainstream politics.

He said: "One person demanded the right to debate -" Holocaust, yes or no?"

"Why ask "yes or no" at a mainstream political party on the Holocaust?"
