U.N. Human Rights Council video screen cap

So much of the propaganda against Israel comes from the United Nations.

But the U.N. human rights bureaucracy has no credibility, as this video demonstrates.

It appears that secrecy is the new policy at ASA.

The ancient “blood libel” that Jews use the blood of non-Jewish children to make Matzah has its modern incarnation in Israel Apartheid Week, which starts this week on campuses.

Not surprisingly, the incoming President of the American Studies Association, Lisa Duggan of NYU, is leading an anti-Israel effort that coincides with Israel...

To repeat, take the Boycott Divest and Sanction movement seriously, because it reflects an insidious coalition of anti-Israeli leftists and Islamists, which reflects a sophisticated part of the overall war on Israel.

But, keep things in perspective.

Despite all the heated anti-Israel rhetoric coming from academic extremists, Israel has favorability ratings in the latest...
