On July 7-9, 2019, the largest pro-Israel organization in the United States, Christians United For Israel (CUFI), will hold its annual Summit in Washington, D.C.  Thousands of CUFI attendees will gather inside the Walter E. Washington Convention Center to hear from speakers such as Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. In this post we will describe the preparations by leading anti-Israel groups to protest outside the venue, and cause a disruption inside the venue, as laid out at a planning meeting recently held in Maryland.

Back in February, I wrote about two transgender sprinters who placed first and second in the Girls Indoor Track Championship held in Connecticut.  As I noted at the time, the same two transgender athletes had won the top spots the year before, as well. Three of the girls who competed in the track championship have now filed a federal discrimination complaint against a statewide policy on transgender athletes.

It’s Pride Month, when people commemorate the Stonewall Uprising—a major turning point in the movement for gay rights. But for the Washington, D.C. Dyke March (a leftist, lesbian-centered and activism-focused alternative to traditional gay pride parades), that can mean only one thing: activists using "intersectionality" to excuse their own bigotry.

It has been a busy few months here since launching the Legal Insurrection Foundation in early March 2019. We have continued to put the systems in place to effectuate our mission to put together a small but effective research, investigative and educational team. We have a special focus on intersectionality and the red-green alliance, the cross-over of anti-capitalism, anti-Americanism and anti-Zionism that motivates so much of the activism ripping at the fabric of our freedoms.

When a coalition of student groups at Cornell University, led by Students for Justice in Palestine, recently tried to pass a divestment resolution against certain companies doing business in Israel, a couple of interesting things happened. First, as is now a common tactic, the dispute was racialized to portray it as a coalition of "students of color" against the white supremacist (Jewish) Israelis.

It's not like we haven't been warning about this for the ten-plus years Legal Insurrection has been in existence. We have. In posts too numerous to link, we have warned that the anti-Israel movement, including anti-Zionist and far left-wing Jews, has been so relentlessly demonizing and dehumanizing Israel that they were normalizing antisemitism.

As the Great American War on Monuments is still raging, I would like to nominate a contender for removal. It’s not that I object to the sculpture on ideological grounds—I deplore the ideology behind socialist realism, for instance, but I admire some of the state-sponsored Soviet art despite it—but because the work in question does not transcend ideology . . .  and is exceptionally ugly.

After years of hostility to Jews and their pro-Israel views at California State University and San Francisco State University, a lawsuit was brought against the board of trustees, faculty, and even the President of the University. SFSU had been a particular thorn in the side of their Jewish students, more so than other universities around the country. They are rated within the Algemeiner's  list of campuses that are the "worst" for Jewish students.

The repeated antisemitic comments from Democrat Representative Ilhan Omar, while condemnable, are all too familiar to those of us who have closely followed the anti-Israel movement. Charges of dual loyalty or disloyalty lodged against Jews predate the creation of the State of Israel by many centuries. Those charges are a core accusation of the oldest hate.
