In a recent post, I documented how American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) ejected me from its annual conference Thanksgiving weekend because it was afraid I would provide negative coverage.

I have researched and written extensively about American Muslims for Palestine, a key connector of anti-Israel Islamist and radical leftist groups, including fringe anti-Zionist Jews who provide cover.

Search for Vassar College in Legal Insurrection’s archives, and you’ll find scores of posts documenting Vassar students’ efforts to shut down speech with which they disagree.

In October 2019, CodePink took another in a long line of trips to the Islamic Republic of Iran on the premise of promoting peace.

The latest trip, even more so than the prior trips, amounted to a whitewash of Iranian human rights violations, particularly towards women. The CodePink group was led by...

Almost nothing is taboo for #Pallywood, the anti-Israel propaganda industry that creates false or misleading images, videos and narratives in order to portray Israelis as evil. Non-Palestinian western activists and international media are an important part of this propaganda campaign.

From faking injuries to using children as props, for decades, anti-Israel agitators...
