Long ago, I foresaw that Hillary Clinton eventually would have to come to grips with her Max Blumenthal problem. That problem was that Max’s toxic anti-Israel politics would become a political liability Hillary could not ignore despite her affection for and affliction with Max’s father, Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal.

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...

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...

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

This is becoming a recurring theme.

When there is a riot or other protest in the U.S., particularly if involving minority communities, “pro-Palestinian” activists try to hijack it and turn it into a criticism of Israel.
