Berlin rally Jew, Cowardly Pig, Come On Out And Fight

The title of this post is from a Facebook comment I saw about an article by Stephen Daisley at STV News (Scotland), Analysis: Jeremy Corbyn is not an anti-Semite. It’s so much worse than that.

Jeremy Corbyn is the likely new leader of the British Labour Party, someone I addressed in

Matishayu Concert announcement Oscwiecim Poland

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement has declared that American Jewish musician Matisyahu must be banned from public concerts because he is too pro-Israel.

In a report at the anti-Zionist Mondoweiss website,  Benjamin Norton (who criticized the ban at his own website before the post was taken down), lays out the position of...

Matisyahu Rototom Sunsplash Sings Jerusalem

Benjamin Norton is a leading author who favors the boycott movement (BDS) against Israel.

Norton writes for the anti-Zionist Mondoweiss website, as well as a slew of other places on the topic of how bad Israel is. While I don’t agree with most of what Norton says, he certainly is prolific...

Matisyahu Rototom Sunsplash Sings Jerusalem

Matisyahu is the American Jewish musician who was banned by the Rototom Sunsplash Reggae Festival under pressure and threats from the Boycott, Divestments and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Leading American BDS activists support the ban.

The ban created a strong reaction from the Spanish press and government, which called the ban blatant and...

Matisyahu Israel

American Jewish reggae singer Matisyahu was banned from the Spanish Rototom Sunsplash festival after intense pressure from supporters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, who demanded that Matisyahu sign a pledge supporting a Palestinian state.

Matisyahu was singled out because he was Jewish. He’s not even Israeli. No other musician, regardless...

We wrote the other day about how the Boycott, Divestment and Movement pressured the Spanish Rototom Reggae festival to ban American Jewish musician Matisyahu because he refused to sign a pledge supporting a Palestinian state.

Matishayu’s position was that he’s just a musician and shouldn’t have to take a political pledge, particularly...

For years we have been arguing that at most there is a thin line between the Israel hatred of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and hatred of Jews.

BDS was born at the anti-Semitic 2001 Durban conference, but was repackaged as a grassroots “civil society” movement in 2005, and...

JVP plays a critical role in numerous aspects of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement in the United States by giving...

Marie Brenner, writing in Vanity Fair, explores whether Jews should leave France.

The French language version of the article is titled Paris En Flammes. With my distant recollection of high school french, that translates as Paris in Flames.

But the English language version has a more descriptive title, The Troubling Question in the...

The anti-Semitism deeply embedded in the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has been apparent for years, but particularly since the 2014 Gaza War.

Rallies against Israel regularly devolved into Jew-baiting throughout Europe, and even in some places in the U.S.,
