The Myth of Jews and Slavery

E-mail Print PDF
One of the enduring myths against the Jews is that they played a key role in the slave trade. The British newspaper Independent recently reported that Jackie Walker, the vice-chair of the left-wing Labor Party–linked movement, wrote on her Facebook page: “I’m sure you know, millions more Africans were killed in the...

The Myth of ‘The Age of Humdrum Terror’

E-mail Print PDF
In response to the continued acts of terror in Europe and the U.S., the English weekly news magazine Economist recently opined that “it seems likely that much of Europe and America will have to get used to acts of Islamist-inspired terrorism becoming, if not routine, at least fairly regular occurrences.” Israel is cited as an example of where terrorism has become a part of daily life.

In this “age of humdrum terror,” the paper warned of the risk of overreacting to these acts of terrorism, since as President Obama observed, the likelihood of drowning in a bathtub is far greater than being murdered by terrorists. Though statistically the danger of being killed or maimed by a...

Exploiting the Abuse of Arab Children to Delegitimize Israel

Palestinian Arabs have become extremely adept in attempting to delegitimize the Jewish State.  They have accused Israel of being an apartheid state, a right-wing religious theocracy, and they constantly attempt, by their various actions, to make it a pariah state, and an international war criminal. In his final speech to the UN General Assembly on September 20, President Obama demonstrated that he has totally bought into, and thereby parroted, the Arab lie that Israel is a usurper of Arab land. “Israel must recognize that it cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land,” he said.

Among the latest attempts to demonize Israel is a letter sent to President Obama on June...

Grassroots Jewish Organizations Roar

Richard Allen is not a careful, polished Jewish communal leader with a seasoned staff operating from a midtown Manhattan office, ensconced behind a stylized logo, fortified by tax-exempt donations and burnished advisors. Allen is a private businessman. He wields his entire organization from a computer in his office and, not infrequently, from a phone in his pocket.

One moment he can be alone with his message, staring at his device screen with no one peering over his shoulder or blue-lining his message. Then, an instant later—from his office, home or a New York City sidewalk — he hits “send.” Instantly, he’s no longer alone. Like an excited neuron firing on a neural network...

Palestinian Terrorism and Muslim Hypocrisy: An Open Letter From a Muslim Woman

E-mail Print PDF
While millions of children got out of bed on the morning of June 30, excited for summer vacation, one child did not. A young Israeli girl, 13-year-old Hallel Yaffe Ariel, was brutally murdered in her own bed by a 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist. He broke into her house and stabbed her to death. Another life lost to senseless violence. Another poor soul taken too early from this world. But few Muslims in this world will be mourning her death, because Hallel was an Israeli Jew.

I am a Muslim, and I know that when it comes to Palestinian terrorism, too many Muslims are hypocrites. I have seen firsthand the casual, destructive anti-Semitism that plagues the Muslim community. I have heard...
