Once again the Left dines on its own: the demonization of Gal Gadot

When Gal Gadot starred in the enormously successful movie “Wonder Woman,” Leftists at first saw it as a moment of women’s empowerment. Here we had a strong and independent superhero who was a woman—much like “Black Panther” is praised for empowering black children. But it didn’t take long for the approbation to wane. After all, […]

Why isn’t anti-Semitism as reviled as “Islamophobia” or anti-black racism?

Everybody knows that, among the Left, “Islamophobia” is a cardinal sin, even when it refers not to bigotry against Muslims but criticism of Muslim beliefs. Certainly real bigotry against individuals, or invidious stereotypes against groups, should be decried, as it is for anti-black racism. In fact, one characteristic of the Left is its sympathy for […]

Pakistani feminist banned by Facebook for criticizing those who victim blamed (on religious grounds) a 7-year old girl who was raped and murdered

The “Atheist Muslim” Ali Rizvi called attention to Facebook’s new ban on his wife, feminist activist Alishba Zarmeen, for an emotional but affecting post that, as he notes below, condemned those who blamed an 8-year-old Pakistani girl for her own rape and murder, as well as calling out some doctrines of Islam that enable this […]

This is not from The Onion

Click on the screenshot to go to the article: If you need confirmation, go here. Needless to say, Sarsour has no expertise in anti-Semitism (except how to promote it), nor, apparently, do the other panelists. This is one example of how many liberals, among them Jews, promote the undermining of their own principles and well-being […]

Alan Dershowitz gives non-confrontational talk on Israel at Berkeley, then called a Nazi and anti-Semitically caricatured

The line between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism is nearly invisible—if it exists at all—but was surely crossed by the behavior of students at the University of California at Berkeley (UCB), where Harvard emeritus law professor Alan Dershowitz, a liberal Democrat, recently spoke on Israel. His October 11 talk was called “The liberal case for Israel,” and […]

Students for Justice in Palestine lump Zionists with fascists and white supremacists, urge physical violence against them

I’ve always seen Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) as an anti-Semitic organization, since they’re “anti-Zionist” (that’s the euphemism for “anti-Semitic”, just as “states’ rights” was once a euphemism for “segregation”). How can you say you’re not anti-Semitic if you are against the existence of Israel as a homeland for refugee Jews? Here is the […]

Holocaust revision tee-shirt

A place called Teespring, which seems to offer pretty innocuous teeshirts, also sells this one (click on pictures to go there): Front: Back:   They appear to be out of the shirt temporarily, but you can reserve one for yourself, and it’s only $21.99. Now of course I think it should be legal to sell […]

What is Zionism?

After I wrote the previous post, I was curious to see how “Zionism” was defined by the Oxford English Dictionary, which I use as my standard source of definitions. Here’s the total entry from the online version from the University of Chicago Library (I’ve left out the examples of usage, which don’t add anything): But […]

Upcoming Chicago SlutWalk bans “Zionist displays” (but not pro-Palestinian or Iranian ones)

Not too long ago, some Jewish lesbians who were carrying a “Jewish pride” flag—the gay flag with a Star of David on it—were kicked out of Chicago’s Dyke March. When questioned, the organizers couldn’t get their story straight: one said that the booting was in response to Jews’ chanting “no walls anywhere” in response to […]

Anti-Semitism of the day: Chicago lesbians ban “Jewish pride” flag from their Dyke March

I am deeply ashamed of Chicago’s gay community today. From both the left-wing Israel paper Haaretz and the Windy City Media Group, we get a disturbing report: at yesterday’s “Dyke March” in Chicago, a parade celebrating lesbian and LGBT pride and achievements, Jewish lesbians carrying the “Jewish pride” flag were asked to leave.  Why? Because […]
