This past week, during the intermediate days of Passover (Chol Hamoed), nearly 900 Israeli Jews, roughly 100 to 300 per day, ascended Jerusalem’s Temple Mount.

Thousands of tourists also visited the sacred place over the course of the week.

The site is the place of the two Jewish Temples in antiquity. It’s considered...

Anti-Israel campaign in Germany

Anti-Israel boycott campaign, the so-called BDS movement, and other anti-Israel groups are carrying out a coordinated campaign to hijack the May Day demonstrations in Germany with an aim of spreading their anti-Semitic and anti-Israel message. The blatant anti-Semitism and the hatred of Israel these groups propagates is getting so repugnant that it is...

Northeastern SJP Protest Long Live Intifada Sign

By now, it is common for supporters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement on campuses to interrupt speeches and chant “Long Live the Intifada.”

At UT-Austin, the chant was shouted by a group from the Palestine Solidarity Committee as they interrupted an event put on by the Israeli Studies Department....

Straight Outta Egypt w border

Tonight is the First Night of Passover, in which we celebrate the Exodus from Egypt.

My favorite passage from the traditional Passover Haggadah is one that is evergreen:

“For not just one alone has risen against us to destroy us, but in every generation they rise against us to destroy us; and the...

JVP Passover Haggadah 2016 w border

Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) is a non-Jewish organization that gives cover to the anti-Israel boycott movement (BDS) and its political war on Israel by washing away the stains of anti-Semitism that are central to the BDS movement’s founding, actions and identity.

As we noted in a prior post, JVP operates in...

Shut Down AIPAC Hezbollah Flag

One of the most common questions I get when I give speeches about the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has to do with its funding.

BDS, including in the U.S., has plenty of money to organize, fly people around, and coordinate efforts across dozens of campuses and multiple countries. Yet BDS...

Palestinian Incitement: Hamas propaganda video

Even before the smoke could settle over the site of yesterday’s bus blast in Jerusalem that left 21 people wounded — two of them seriously — the Palestinian leadership is praising and celebrating the  terror attack.

The armed-wing of PLO-Fatah, active in the territory under Palestinian Authority control, applauded the Jerusalem bus blast, calling...

There was a bus explosion near Jerusalem earlier today. At first there was confusion as to whether it was a bomb or some technical failure. Police have just confirmed that it w...

Terrorist group Hezbollah is using the conflict in Syria to prepare for a war with Israel, reveals a report published by the UK-based research group BICOM. In 2015, Iran funnelled a billion dollars to the Lebanon-based terrorist group. According to a strategic analysis released by Britain Israel Communications & Research Centre (BICOM) on Monday, Iran-backed Hezbollah’s missile stockpile...

While anti-Israel propaganda is common on college and university campuses, there appears to be a filtering down to the public education system.

We already have seen attempts to proselytize students into becoming “freedom fighters for Palestine” at an Ithaca, NY, third grade class.  Now the Newton (MA) Public Schools are embroiled in controversy over...

In a recent post, we highlighted how Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) is being promoted in America’s liberal Protestant churches.

As we discussed, a malicious strain of anti-Israelism has taken root in these progressive churches largely because of a deep-seated organizational dysfunction:

A vocal and strong minority within the church have led the...

The shift is towards disruption of Israeli and pro-Israeli speakers on campus in order to create a hostile campus environment. We have reported on several such recent disruptions, including...

She frequently makes reference to how she was carved up and butchered by Palestinians, but harbors no hatred of Palestinians. Israelly Cool has extensive archives on Kay Wilson.

We reported previously on the deceptive anti-Israel Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign at NYU, in which BDS supporters try to co-opt unrelated divestment movements, such as fossil fuel.

This campaign has now morphed into a boycott petition at NYU’s Graduate Student Union (GSOC-UAW Local 2110). Meanwhile the deceptive tactics continue.
