The incident ignited a lot of national attention. Yet there was...

It has not been a good couple of weeks for Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison in his quest for Chair of the Democratic National Committee.

Ellison was fast out of the gate, with major endorsements from Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid, Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi and many others.

We have documented for years how anti-Israel protests at campuses frequently cross over into antisemitism, both directly and by creating a toxic environment for Jews.

Ryerson University in Toronto is a case in point. A resolution to boycott Israel passed in 2014

Another Ontario university student union has voted in support of the anti-Israel...

An Oberlin College professor, who is Jewish, recently awoke in the middle of the night after hearing noise on his front porch. When he walked out the front door he discovered some broken shells (it’s unclear what kind or size) and a note tucked under a mezuzah on his door.

You may remember Joy Karega, the Oberlin College “Social Justice Writing” Professor who put numerous anti-Semitic posts and graphics on Facebook.

Karega was a supporter of the anti-Israel boycott movement, and hosted an event promoting BDS right around the time the controversy over her Facebook posts erupted. But she wasn’t questioned and...

I guess this is now a continuing series.

Turkey’s Islamist President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is gutting any remnants of opposition by attacking numerous aspects of civil society, including particularly academia.

Yet *shockingly* none of the progressive professors who demand a boycott of Israeli universities and academia are organizing a boycott of Turkish Universities.

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement is the mother’s milk of modern antisemitism.

Wherever you find strong BDS activity, the line between anti-Zionism and antisemitism blurs to the point of disappearing. We’ve seen it time and again in street harassment of Jews in the name of anti-Zionism.
