According to a report by the UK’s Community Security Trust, anti-Semitic incidents have skyrocketed in 2014, reaching the highest levels ever recorded.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center reports that British Jews are increasingly afraid to visit Jewish-owned stores.

A recent UK study finds that almost half...

Sean Connery Scottish Independence

On September 18, the Scots will vote on a referendum that could end their 300 year old (approximately) tie to England, well sort of.

Nothing, really.

Ignorance. Hate. Demonization. You name it.

You’ll find it in London, Chicago, and just about anywhere you find anti-Israel street protests.

From London, via Harry’s Place, which has even more videos:

From Chicago, where a pro-Israel fundraiser hosted by Mayor Rahm Emanual and former Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren...

It will be easy — and likely correct — to assert that this is another Islamic terrorist attack.

The reaction to Margaret Thatcher’s death is painfully predictable.
