Do Palestinian Arabs Want a Peaceful State Alongside Israel?

Morton A. Klein and Daniel Mandel, What consistent polling of Palestinians tells us. Discussion of the Arab/Israeli situation is often unilluminating because so much of it is based on groundless assumptions and stubborn fictions. Perhaps the most pervasive one today afflicting the international political class is the notion that Palestinian Arabs primarily desire a state

Tufts and Brandeis College Admin. Promote Terrorist Propaganda, Silence Opposing Views

Sara Dogan, Brandeis professor: “Zionist olive trees grow wondrously on Palestinian corpses.” Editor’s note: Tufts University and Brandeis University are the latest two schools named to the Freedom Center’s report on the “Top Ten College Administrations Most Friendly to Terrorists and Hostile to the First Amendment.” These campuses provide financial and institutional support to terrorist-linked

Campus fascists have been using their Gestapo tactics against pro-Israel speakers for years

Richard L. Cravatts, The New Jacobins. When Chester Evans Finn, Jr., a former United States Assistant Secretary of Education, observed in 1989 that university campuses had become “islands of repression in a sea of freedom,” he was anticipating a troubling and prevalent trend now poisoning academia, namely, the suppression of free speech. With alarming regularity,

Mingling with Foes: Phyllis Chesler, Zionists not welcome in the ‘Feminist’ camp?

Eileen F. Toplansky, On November 19, 2003, Phyllis Chesler wrote a searing piece recounting the time when she addressed a women’s “networking” conference of “mainly African-American and Hispanic-American womanists and feminists at Barnard College.”  Her son accompanied her to this conference.

Students For Liberty, Editor’s note: This column was authored by Jacob Linker. I am a proud Jew and a proud American.

Texas Preschool Teacher Fired After Tweeting ‘Kill Some Jews’

NBPP preaches a “Ten-Point Platform” similar to its that of its namesake – the murderous Black panther

Benjamin Netanyahu opposes a Palestinian state, a senior Israeli cabinet member said on Monday, but left it unclear whether the prime minister would say that publicly in talks with U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington this week. Netanyahu has never explicitly abandoned his conditional support for a future Palestine, and his spokesman did not respond

No One Is Vetting Syrian Refugees for Signs of Anti-Semitism

Charles Jacobs, Eyes wide closed at the checkpoints. Major Jewish establishment organizations are strenuously lobbying for the resettlement of Syrian refugees on American soil. It’s explained as a natural extension of Jewish values and history – “we, too, were refugees once. We, too, were the ‘other.’” The comparison is, to say the least, abstract. It

Crying for ‘New Americans’ from the Lands of Jihad

John Perazzo, And a lawsuit tries to stop Trump’s executive order barring refugees from terrorist hotbeds. The executive order by which President Trump aims to temporarily stop the issuance of visas to “immigrants and non-immigrants” from seven hotbeds of Islamic terrorism in the Middle East and Africa says, in the plainest of English, that “in

Fordham University Rejects SJP

Sara Dogan, SJP’s goals “clearly conflict with…the mission and values of the University.”   In a rare but promising decision, Fordham University in New York has elected not to allow the formation of a chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine on campus, citing the conflict between SJP’s emphasis on “polarization rather than dialogue” and its
