Against the backdrop of a rising tide of anti-Semitic incidents across the country and the failure of many mainstream Jewish organizations to condemn anti-Semitism emanating from the left, communities of color, or Islamists, I’ve joined a group of Jewish-American millennials in founding a brand-new non-profit organization called HaShevet.

Look, I’m all for free speech, mainly because it outs the racists and bigots so I know who to avoid.

But Louis Farrakhan’s racist and anti-Semitic views came out a long time ago and he needs to go away.

We all know Pink Floyd musician Roger Waters hates Jews and Israel. He doesn’t hide his anti-Semitism. Now he is spreadling the falsehood that Israel taught U.S. police the tactic used on George Floyd. We have covered extensively this blood libel being spread by anti-Israel groups, including our recent Investigation: Anti-Israel...

We have seen this movie before. Whenever there is a high-profile death of a Black person in the U.S. at the hands of local police, anti-Israel activists try to hijack the anger and redirect it at Israel.

The death of George Floyd in the custody of Minneapolis police is another example. We...

Do not let the United Nations fool you. Although it may have essentially closed its doors in favor of online meetings in the age of coronavirus, its obsessive anti-Israel bias is alive and well. Through its numerous bodies, the UN falsely paints Israeli policy, not COVID-19 itself, as the primary threat...

We have written a lot about how anti-Israel activists routinely hijack causes, events, and crises unrelated to Israel, using “intersectional” theory to turn those issues against the Jewish state.

That phenomenon is playing out again with the coronavirus pandemic, providing the ‘usual suspects’ with yet another issue to exploit.
