As radical leftist ideologies set society on fire, what’s needed is an intellectual debate about whether classical liberalism or a rediscovered conservatism provides the answers.
As some join in Juneteenth commemorations, the question is not whether to oppose racism but how adopting the narrative of “white privilege” legitimizes racialist ideas and anti-Semitism.
Opposition to the targeting of Jews by mainstream Democrats was a rejection of anti-Zionist extremism. But the real problem is this effort’s roots in critical race theory and intersectionality.
Having an Arab party in the coalition should have silenced the “apartheid state” lie. It just proved again that Israel’s enemies don’t care what it does; they just want it dead.
Two years after the moral panic set off by the death of George Floyd, American Jews need to confront the way the BLM movement and the ideologies that underpin it enable hatred of Jews.
Despite the impulse to blame Netanyahu and the usual targets of left-wing scorn, the real answer is the growing popularity of theories like intersectionality that sanction anti-Semitism.
One need not be a fan of LibsofTikTok to realize that the decision of a major pillar of the media establishment that is owned by a Big Tech oligarch like Amazon founder Jeff Bezos to target a private citizen in this way is a deplorable escalation of our political culture wars. That it also carries with it a touch of anti-Semitic incitement only makes it worse.
While Marine Le Pen is considered a threat to Jewish life, President Emmanuel Macron represents a centrist establishment that has failed to meet the challenge of Islamism.
A magazine conference not only failed to address examples of the media spreading lies, but it also gave a platform to those who spread it, including former Pres. Obama.
Prior to 1948, debates about a Jewish state were common. Today, as a Chicago synagogue proclaims its hostility to Zionism, it means siding with those slaughtering Israelis.
Efforts to reform a body that traffics in anti-Semitism won’t work as long as tyrannies like China and Cuba remain members. The United States should leave and defund it, not try to fix it.
If the terror surge spreads elsewhere, the reason will be the normalization of anti-Israel hate and complacency about Islamist radicalism, not Jews bearing the burden of “white privilege.”
The meeting in the Negev with officials from the Arab world is historic. But while helpful, these new allies don’t solve the problem created by Biden’s appeasement of Iran.
U.S. Ambassador to Israel Thomas Nides isn’t just out of touch with the reality of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He sees his job not as fostering good relations, but telling Israelis what they can and cannot do.
Caught in the diplomatic and media crossfire caused by the Russian invasion, the disproportionate attention the Jewish state gets has many causes, but is also linked to anti-Semitism.
Part of the reason for the rush to re-enter a pact that will guarantee that Tehran gets a nuclear weapon is to put Iranian oil on the market. That’s a disaster for everyone.
Self-reliance is the key to security. Israelis must understand that they should avoid being put in a position where, like the Ukrainians, they must rely on fickle international sympathy.
With the Iran nuclear deal about to be restored, administration apologists claim that the problem is the former president’s fault. But the “experts” that blast him are wrong.
The depiction of a teacher who was fired by a synagogue for flaunting her anti-Zionism as a martyr to free speech illustrates the mainstreaming of hatred for Israel.
The problem isn’t that the person they hired to do outreach was a left-wing Twitter troll. It’s that ADL accepted intersectional ideology about racism and is dividing Jews along racial lines.
As the idea of a “Jewish seat” once made clear, seeking diversity on the Supreme Court is defensible. But a process that is only about race and gender creates more problems than solutions.
Woke culture demands ritual acknowledgements about Native Americans. Those, however, who think this should also apply to Palestinians don’t understand that Jews are indigenous in Israel.
The Texas hostage-taker wanted to release an anti-Semitic terrorist whose freedom is sought by Muslim groups. Is it Islamophobic to discuss who might have inspired the incident?
The civil-rights hero’s beliefs are irrelevant to partisans who invoke his legacy and rejected by woke activists besotted with critical race theory.
Sheldon Adelson wasn’t like the others on the Forbes’ list of the world’s wealthiest people. He cared about Israel and the Jews, and didn’t care if his efforts to help the Jewish state thrive made him unpopular.
Talk about goblins in the series about magical wizards being stand-ins for Jews or the product of anti-Semitic memes is a distraction from a necessary discussion of real Jew-hatred.
Claims of a spike in settler violence made headlines while “routine” terror attacks, including murder by Palestinian Arabs against Jews, are downplayed or treated as justified.
Israeli President Isaac Herzog’s visit to the Tomb of the Patriarchs was a reminder of both Jewish rights and the intractable and irrational nature of a conflict that Palestinians don’t wish to end.
The administration is already floating new concessions while the Iranians are flouting international nuclear monitors. Washington has lost the game before it started, and Israel is clearly on its own.
The U.S. Constitution isn’t a blueprint for a purely secular country. But it guarantees that all creeds are welcome and that the nation has no state religion. Those who would change that endanger everyone’s rights.
