It’s Not All Bad News for Jewish Students on American Campuses

With the endless spats of anti-Semitism within our major political parties and a constant stream of “anti-Zionist” claptrap coming out of universities on both sides of the Atlantic, it’s nice to hear some good news about being Jewish on campus:
A recent Brandeis University study of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment on American college campuses finds information completely [...]

Roshan Salih – Champion of Holocaust Deniers

The self-styled “journalist” Roshan Salih is troubled by Holocaust denial. Very troubled. You see, some people really don’t like it and speak up about it. Ashitha Nagesh, for example, writing in Metro.
This is infuriating. Salih knows what is really going on:

So now you know. Holocaust denial is not a horror. [...]

Amnesty’s double standards

Amnesty International has quite a track record when it comes to dubious judgement calls. Most readers will remember when they teamed up with Cage – and the disgraceful way they went on to treat Gita Sahgal when she raised fully legitimate concerns.

Twitter Cracks Down on Far Right Users

Twitter changed their platform policies, resulting in a number of British and American right-wing accounts being banned.  From Taylor Lorenz:
Far-right U.K. political group Britain First was one of the first accounts to be suspended, along with its affiliates including Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen. Three of Fransen’s anti-Muslim viral video tweets, one of which featured [...]

Labour MP Andy Slaughter at the Khaybar Hatred March

Labour MP Andy Slaughter is not one to miss a proper Israel hatred session with his Islamist and far left friends.
Sure enough, it appears that he spoke at Friday’s “Hands Off Jerusalem” demonstration in London.

As you know, an ugly crowd at the demonstration turned to chanting “Khaybar” to express their murderous hatred. [...]

Is David Icke Britain’s Leading Antisemite?

This is a cross-post by Marlon Solomon
If David Icke is not Britain’s leading antisemite I am yet to come across anybody else who is preaching the Protocols of the Elders of Zion to thousands of bewitched followers in sold-out arenas in Britain. Former footballer and sports presenter David Icke has been Britain’s leading conspiracy theorist for decades; [...]
