Anayah “said she has been the victim of hate crimes, threats and fixing since the allegations became public.”

Claiming victim status is a well-established response of Islamic supremacists whenever they are caught doing anything untoward. No one should threaten this person, or even insult her, or harm her in any way. And she shouldn’t be anywhere near a teaching position of any kind.

“Johns Hopkins teaching assistant suspected of lowering Jewish students’ grades,” by Stewart Ain, Forward, January 7, 2021:

Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore has launched a probe into allegations against a university teaching assistant for “alleged anti-Semitism and potential abuse of authority in the discharge of academic responsibilities on our campus.”

The campus Hillel is calling upon students to contact its office if they suspect the teaching assistant lowered their grade as an act of antisemitism.

Published reports have identified the teaching assistant as Rasha Anayah, who is also a graduate student in the chemistry department at Johns Hopkins. It is alleged that in a tweet she posted Nov. 15, she wrote, “ethical dilemma: if you have to grade a zionist students exam, do you still give them all their points even though they support your ethnic cleansing? Like idk.” When 77% of the respondents replied, “Free Palestine! Fail them,” she wrote, “like I agree but also too many of you want me to get fired.”

Howard Libit, executive director of the Baltimore Jewish Council, said to his knowledge none of Anayah’s students have complained about their grades as yet. The fact that Hillel waited until Jan. 6 to ask students if they believed their grade was unfair suggests that grades are only now being sent.

In an email to the Forward, Anaya [sic] said she has been the victim of hate crimes, threats and fixing since the allegations became public.

“In regards to my teaching and evaluation of students,” she wrote, “I have always acted with the utmost integrity and fairness. I am a dedicated teacher and scholar with a commitment to social justice and to my role. My record as a teaching assistant is a testament to these facts.”

Anayah’s Facebook page has either been deleted or restricted to a limited number of people….

 

GEORGIA: Raphael Warnock Is an Anti-Semitic Socialist Who Covered up Child Abuse

I was cautiously optimistic that the GOP would hold at least one seat in Tuesday’s runoff elections in Georgia. Frankly, I gave the edge to Kelly Loeffler, whose opponent, Raphael Warnock, had been exposed as a far-left radical who supports defunding the police.

Heck, while I still don’t believe Joe Biden legitimately won the state of Georgia, I’d believe him winning the Peach State before believing that this reliably red state would vote for the likes of Warnock. Georgia hasn’t voted for a Democrat for president since Bill Clinton in 1992. Not even Barack Obama was able to win the state in 2008, despite the historically high turnout in favor of voting for the first black president. But the mass delusion that Joe Biden is a moderate is still easier to swallow than Warnock.

Yet, watching the election returns Tuesday night was like déjà vu from election night 2020. Like Trump had been, Perdue and Loeffler were ahead early in the evening, and then things started to change. Democrat-leaning Chatham County reportedly stopped counting… only to decide later to release their numbers after all.

 

And once again, we were told everything was fine, and nothing shady was going on. “Chatham County didn’t just stop,” said Gabriel Sterling, voting systems implementation manager for the Georgia Secretary of State’s office. “They completed the counting of everything they have in. That includes Election Day, Advanced, & all of the absentees they had in. The last left will be the absentee by mail that came in today.”

Sterling later appeared on CNN to declare that the blame for the GOP’s losses “falls squarely on the shoulders of President Trump.”

How objective.

But, back to “Reverand” Raphael Warnock. As the senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Warnock has attacked white people, Jews, the police, and the military in his sermons. He’s a bigot in every sense of the word—an insult to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., whose former church Warnock preaches at.

Warnock’s “victory” Tuesday night is akin to Obama’s anti-American, anti-Semitic pastor Jeremiah Wright being elected.

In 2008, Warnock defended Obama’s racist former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and said that his infamous “God Damn America” remark was a form of the “truth-telling tradition of the black church,” which makes people “uncomfortable.” Warnock then blamed the media for “constant playing over and over again of the same sound bites outside of context,” before comparing Wright to Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and calling him a “preacher and a prophet.” Years later, in 2013, he defended Wright’s “God Damn America” speech again, calling it a “very fine homily entitled on confusing God and government” and said it was “consistent with black prophetic preaching.”

In 2011, Warnock delivered a sermon in which he claimed that in America, “nobody can serve God and the military.”

In October 2016, Warnock preached that America must “repent for its worship of whiteness” because of President Trump’s successful candidacy. “No matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, is reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness, on full display this season.”

Warnock later eulogized Communist dictator Fidel Castro before his congregation. “We pray for the people of Cuba in this moment. We remember Fidel Castro, whose legacy is complex. Don’t let anyone tell you a simple story; life usually isn’t very simple. His legacy is complex, kind of like America’s legacy is complex,” Warnock said.

In 2018, Warnock spewed anti-Semitic and anti-Israel rhetoric, declaring, “We saw the government of Israel shoot down unarmed Palestinian sisters and brothers like birds of prey,” and comparing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to segregationist Democrat George Wallace.

Warnock also supports defunding the police, but publicly claims otherwise.

“So, he avoids using defunding the police, because he knows that the Republicans are gonna try to grab onto it and attack, right?” explained Warnock campaign finance assistant Derrick Bhole to an undercover Project Veritas Action journalist. “But in reality, his whole platform with police reform is along the lines of the same people who are saying defund the police.”

Warnock’s political rhetoric is just as bad as his personal behavior.

In 2002, Warnock allegedly attempted to obstruct a police investigation into suspected child abuse at Douglas Memorial Community Church camp in Baltimore, Maryland. According to police records obtained by The Federalist, Warnock and another pastor didn’t just discourage campers and counselors from talking with law enforcement investigating the case, they also “tried to prevent a camper from directing police to another potential witness.”

Warnock himself has been accused of misconduct by his ex-wife. Bodycam footage of a domestic dispute between Warnock and his ex-wife was conveniently not covered by the liberal media.

I told a friend early Tuesday evening that even if Loeffler defeats Warnock, that the election was even close was a major cause for concern. We’ll have to see if there is enough evidence the elections were stolen, just as the presidential election appears to have been, but regardless, that Warnock was even competitive in Georgia in the first place is a big problem. In 2017, he urged his church to join him in “dismantling the value system of the American empire.”

In the Senate, he’ll have the power to work toward achieving that goal.

 

TERRIFYING: WASHINGTON POST CHANNELS NAZI PROPAGANDA TO SLANDER REPUBLICANS

EXCERPT FROM: https://womenincomics.fandom.com/wiki/Ann_Telnaes: 

"In December 2015, one of Telnaes's animated cartoons became the center of controversy. In response to an ad for the presidential campaign of Republican senator Ted Cruz, which featured his 5- and 7-year old daughters delivering a partisan message and an oblique attack on the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. In her cartoon, Telnaes portrayed the daughters of the senator as monkeys on leashes, with Cruz holding the leashes and grinding an organ. Though the cartoon was taken down from the Washington Post's website, Telnaes stood by it, tweeting "Ted Cruz has put his children in a political ad — don't start screaming when editorial cartoonists draw them as well.""

A Washington Post cartoon in the Sunday Opinion section portraying Republicans as “rats” is strikingly similar to a 1939 Nazi propaganda illustration portraying Jews as rats.

Ann Telnaes, the Washington Post’s self-proclaimed “Nasty Woman Pulitzer prize-winning editorial cartoonist,” produced a cartoon eerily similar to the one published in 1939 in the wake of the Anschluss, or the German annexation of Austria in 1938 by the Marxist publication “Das Kleine Blatt”.

The cartoon seeks to intimidate Republicans for following the process bestowed to Americans by the founding fathers to ensure fair elections. Telnaes and her allies seek to dehumanize those who dare to thwart the very evident and well-planned voter fraud that has occurred during the 2020 elections.

Steve Milloy of Junk Science highlighted the images side by side in a Tweet, but it has not stopped leftists from praising the cartoon. “A picture that’s truly worth a thousand words,” gushed Lawrence Tribe, Professor of Constitutional Law at Harvard.

“Ann Telnes does it again,” praised leftist podcaster Amy Siskind. “They are attempting to sink the ‘Ship of State,” lamented actor Tim Matheson. Journalist Dave Keating wrongly and embarrassingly observed that the “rats” cartoon is an illustration of a “shockingly long list of the Republicans in high office who collaborated in the attempted coup in America.”

Salon author Amanda Marcotte sneered: “Honestly, this is an insult to rats.” “Art Director” Chris Rukan at Washington Post Opinions experimented with his alliteration skills, gleefully tweeting that “really RATcheted up the RAT RATio in this RAT-tacular RAT-ravaganza.”

Americans should support those very few people who stand up to the bullying left. They are not “rats,” they are the actual resistance.

Biden excludes Israel from proposed negotiations for new Iran nuclear deal

BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2020/12/biden-excludes-israel-in-proposed-new-iran-deal;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

In an apparent appeal to Biden, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared: “There can be no going back to the previous nuclear agreement.” Apparently indifferent to this appeal, Biden has excluded Israel “from the list of countries he said needed to be included in negotiations with Iran toward a new nuclear agreement.”

Two years ago, Netanyahu offered proof that the Iran nuclear deal was based on lies, and that Iran was, contrary to its denials, working toward developing nuclear weapons.

No nuclear deal with Iran should have ever been concluded in the first place. Appeasement does not work. It enables. And in another aspect of the Obama Administration’s appeasement policy with Iran, Iran received $33.6 billion in secret payments.

Biden is already showing his true sentiments regarding Israel. The Palestinian Authority has noticed, and has prepared a wish list of demands for Biden.

Biden has already named a Palestinian who justified jihad suicide bombings as his deputy director of the Office of Legislative Affairs.

“Joe Biden Does Not Include Israel in Proposed New Iran Deal Negotiations,” by Joel B. Pollak, Breitbart, December 2, 2020:

Joe Biden excluded Israel on Wednesday from the list of countries he said needed to be included in negotiations with Iran toward a new nuclear agreement.

In an interview with Thomas Friedman of the New York Times, Biden said that he wanted to resume talks with Iran in the hope of returning to a nuclear agreement that constrains the regime’s ability to develop nuclear weapons.

He added that he wanted to expand the number of countries at the negotiating table with Iran — but pointedly excluded Israel from the list:

The view of Biden and his national security team is that once the deal is restored by both sides, there will have to be, in very short order, a round of negotiations to seek to lengthen the duration of the restrictions on Iran’s production of fissile material that could be used to make a bomb — originally 15 years — as well as to address Iran’s malign regional activities, through its proxies in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria and Yemen.

Ideally, the Biden team would like to see that follow-on negotiation include not only the original signatories to the deal — Iran, the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France, Germany and the European Union — but also Iran’s Arab neighbors, particularly Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Iran and Israel do not have diplomatic relations, but Israel is the country that would be most directly affected by any nuclear agreement. Iran has vowed to destroy Israel, and Israel has said it would take any necessary steps to stop Iran from becoming a nuclear power.

One of the major flaws of the Obama administration’s Iran deal was that Israel was excluded from the talks even though its national security was directly affected by the outcome….

 

Science Nazis Demand Obedience To Their Political Agenda~We’ve seen this before IN HITLER’S GERMANY

Whether the issue is “Climate Change” or ways of dealing with COVID-19 the Radical Left ridicules anyone who would dare to question their positions on critical issues.  They accuse those who question them or their claims of not believing in science.

Consider the Yahoo News report that AOL posted on October 26, 2020, Bill Gates slams Trump's COVID-19 adviser as  'pseudo-expert' who's 'off-the-rails' which began with this excerpt:

In a new interview, billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates sharply criticized the Trump administration for muzzling experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) while instead listening to White House COVID-19 adviser Dr. Scott Atlas, whom Gates calls a pseudo-expert” whooff-the-rails.”

Atlas, a member of the administrations coronavirus task force who formerly appeared as a commentator for Fox News, reportedly opposes an expansion of COVID testing and earlier this month posted a tweet falsely downplaying the effectiveness of masks. Twitter later removed the post from Atlas, a Stanford University professor with a medical degree from the University of Chicago School of Medicine.

We now have a pseudo-expert advising the president,” Gates, the former Microsoft (MSFT) CEO and a leading backer of global public health initiatives, told Yahoo Finance Editor-in-Chief Andy Serwer in an interview that aired on Monday as part of the news organizationAll Markets Summit.

After the interview, taped on Oct. 15, Gates confirmed that he had made the comments in reference to Atlas, who has opposed lockdowns and co-authored an op-ed in The Hill called The COVID-19 shutdowns will cost Americans millions of years of lives.”

This article is important for a number of reasons.  First of all, Gates demonstrated colossal chutzpah to insult a medical doctor who graduated from a highly respected medical school and serves as a professor at Stanford University, while Gates, himself, never attended any medical school.

In fact, Gates has no degree of any kind!

What then, could possibly qualify Gates to pass judgement on the credibility of a medical doctor especially one with the clear credentials of Dr. Scott Atlas even as he castigated President Trump for challenging the contradictory and morphing advice of Dr. Fauci.

The AOL/Yahoo article stated that Twitter had removed what they claimed was a tweet posted by Dr. Atlas that they claim falsely downplayed the effectiveness of masks.

It is more than a bit disturbing that Twitter censored Dr. Atlas and, in so doing, prevented the general public from benefitting from his perspectives.  This should alarm everyone.

About 20 years ago I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer.  The surgeon who examined me and told me of my situation was the chief of urology at a major New York Hospital and chaired the department of urology at a major medical school.

However, while he told me that he believed that he could save my life, he urged me to seek out at least one additional opinion so that I would be confident that I was making the proper decision.

I did seek out that second opinion and my medical insurance policy covered that second opinion, because this notion of seeking additional opinions is considered the standard way for people to make certain that they are making proper life and death decisions.

Needless to say, my surgeon saved my life- this a good thing because I have not aggravated my quota yet!

Where science and the Radical Left are concerned, however, not blindly following what their anointed experts proclaim, is an act of heresy.

This flies in the face of commonsense and threatens the First Amendment and all of our freedoms.

In doing a bit of research I found a similar situation that existed in a different country many years ago. 

That country was Germany as the Third Reich began taking control of Germany and its population, Jews came under vicious attack.  No less a scientist that Albert Einstein was attacked for his work.  Scientific America on February 13, 2015 published an important article about the lunacy that transpired at that time, How 2 Pro-Nazi Nobelists Attacked Einsteins "Jewish Science" [Excerpt].

The article discussed the mass book burnings carried out on college campuses, not unlike the way that Antifa operates today.  Books authored by Albert Einstein were incinerated.  Here is an important paragraph from this article:

It would be absurd, of course, to suppose that most of the book-burners had given these questions a moments thought. The simple fact was that Einstein was a prominent Jew, and his thoughts therefore fit for the bonfire. But Einsteins theory was attacked on racial grounds. This assault came not by asinine ideologues in the party whose knowledge of science extended no further than a belief in fairy tales about cosmic ice,” nor from individuals on the scientific fringe seeking official approval and support. It was orchestrated by two Nobel laureates in physics, who devised a full-blown thesis (it cant be dignified by calling it a theory) on how stereotypical racial features are exhibited in scientific thinking. They were Philipp Lenard and Johannes Stark, and they wanted to become the new Führers of German physics.

Einstein’s Theories of Relativity and his concept of Space-Time were mocked and ridiculed by two Nazi Nobel laureates.

Of course, nearly all of Einstein’s brilliant theories have been validated in recent years by scientists and physicists who now have the technological tools to conduct appropriate experiments.

Understandably fearing for his life,  Einstein fled Nazi Germany and came to America where, ironically, he helped America defeat Fascism in Germany and Japan and, in so doing, safeguarded freedom for people across the globe.

Today the Radical Left demands obedience to theories about climate change that support their demands for the “New Green Deal” even as some scientists question the validity of the notion that human actions have climatological consequences that must be stopped at all costs.

They seek nothing short of a fundamental transformation in the way that we live and work and these demands can only be justified by claiming that catastrophic climate change can only be averted if we adopt draconian changes.

Science has always been about challenges beliefs and devising experiments to seek the truth.

To cite an interesting example of how highly respected scientists may come to diametrically opposed conclusions consider a pair of articles that ran on the same website (Space.com) on two consecutive days.

On October 19, 2020, that website posted, Whats Happening with Betelgeuse? Astronomers Propose a Specialized Telescope to Watch the Star Every Night.

The very next day, October 20, the website published, Wow, Betelgeuse Might Be 25% Closer than Previously Believed.

The physicists who wrote the first article postulated that because Betelgeuse is so huge and pulsating, it is likely to explode within our lifetimes.  They estimated that that star is 700 light-years from earth.  This is why they proposed the construction of a special telescope to keep an astronomical eye on that star.

However, if the physicists who published the second article are right, Betelgeuse is 548 light years away.  This would mean that the star is not nearly as large or bright as the other physicists believe.  This would mean that Betelgeuse is not likely to become a super nova any time soon- at least not for another 100,000 years by their estimates.

This may not seem important to us on our beleaguered planet, but the lessons to be learned is very important. 

Experts can and do disagree.  The process of questioning is behind all of our achievements. Scientists who serve a political agenda are the scientists who must not be trusted.

Science is supposed to be the tireless search for universal truths and must be unencumbered by political agendas. 

Scientists who yield to the political elite betray their professions and should be ignored as the science-fascists that they are.

Voltaire sagely observed that you could determine the intelligence of a person by considering the questions that they ask, the same questions that today will earn you scorn and ridicule by the Radical Left.

 

Antifa Mob Attacks Jews for Trump Caravan in New York

BY TYLER O'NEIL

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

On Sunday, an angry leftist mob, many of whom dressed in antifa-style black block, attacked a convoy of hundreds of cars joined a “Jews for Trump” caravan in Brooklyn, New York City. The cars, draped with American flags and “Trump 2020” banners, drove slowly through Manhattan and Brooklyn. The lawless mob hurled rocks at cars, dumped paint on them, shot pepper spray into vehicles, and assaulted drivers and passengers who dared to step outside of their vehicles.

Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s Jewish son-in-law and adviser, called on Democratic nominee Joe Biden to denounce these attacks on Trump’s Jewish supporters.

“I really hope that Joe Biden, his campaign, will come out and condemn these anti-Semitic actions that were taken against Trump supporters and be respectful again,” Kushner said on Fox & Friends.

Boris Epshteyn, an advisor to the Trump campaign and co-chair of Jewish Voices for Trump, organized the event along with Dov Hikind, a former state assemblyman. The Jews for Trump rally aimed to show solidarity with “the beleaguered Red Zone community,” a reference to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D-N.Y.) allegedly anti-Semitic lockdown orders that seem targeted to restrict the Jewish community. Rabbis and Jewish schools have filed lawsuits against the restrictions.

As the convoy drove through New York, angry men and women started accosting the cars and the drivers. A bicyclist stopped by and punched a car out of the blue, cursing the Jewish driver for supporting Trump.

Other videos showed people throwing rocks at cars as they drove under an overpass.

Orthodox Jewish Rabbis Sue Cuomo for ‘Blatantly Anti-Semitic’ COVID Order

Some threw eggs at the Jews for Trump caravan.

The egg-thrower apparently filmed himself and even bragged about it.

When an angry group of protesters blocked one of the cars in Manhattan, the driver got out, asking them to clear the way. Someone shouted, “We don’t want you here!” The mob attacked him and stole some of the Trump flags on his vehicle. The driver pointed police to one of the instigators, whom the police arrested.

The police directed people to disperse and to remain on the sidewalk. In the scuffle, the driver and a woman who had been in the car with him faced violent protesters.

One of the angry protesters, who appeared to be dressed in black bloc similar to antifa rioters, kicked a woman in the back as she fled back to the car. One of the Trump supporters identified the female victim as “my girl.”

One of the men involved in the caravan told Fox News he and his family of seven were attacked with pepper spray as they drove down the streets of Manhattan.

“A member of the family that was pepper-sprayed told Fox News that the unprovoked attack happened while the family was driving down Fifth Avenue with the car windows down and Trump flags displayed,” Fox News reported. “The man, who wished to remain anonymous fearing his family could be targeted, said a car pulled up next to them and unleashed pepper spray into their vehicle.”

“Immediately the kids started crying and screaming and I jumped out of the car after I was peppered [sic] sprayed as well,” he told Fox News.

The man said the attacker chased him, trying to hit him with pepper-spray yet again. His mother flagged down a police officer and the cop arrested the suspect.

The man said the kids “are now traumatized” and still “coughing from” the pepper-spray.

The New York Police Department said the cops arrested 11 people at the rally. They charged six of the suspects with disorderly conduct, obstruction of government administration, and harassment. A seventh suspect faces charges of assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.

NYPD Chief Terence Monahan announced that police detectives are investigating the suspects who hurled rocks at cars in the caravan.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani took part in the caravan.

The caravan ultimately reached its destination and the Jews for Trump rally proved rather energetic.

These attacks came after a summer of riots across America and particularly in New York City following the death of George Floyd. While Biden condemned the arson and looting early on and more recently, he remained silent for months. He singled out “right-wing militias” but rarely condemned antifa or Black Lives Matter agitators, and never singled out the leftist agitators for condemnation.

Iran’s Khamenei: ‘Muslim nations will never accept the humiliation of compromising with the Zionist regime’

While Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, and Sudan are normalizing relations with Israel, the Islamic Republic of Iran remains determined to obliterate Israel, as the Palestinian Arabs and their allies have vowed to do since the birth of the modern state of Israel in 1948. Although the Palestinians claim to want a “two-state” solution, a single state that they would dominate is really the goal, as is made clear in the PLO Manifesto and the charters of various Palestinian groups.

Iran has spent billions on supporting the jihad against Israel (and against the West). Meanwhile, Turkey also poses a significant and increasing threat to Israel. A paper close to Erdogan once called for an Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) “army of Islam” to attack Israel. Erdogan recently hosted a large Hamas delegation, including wanted jihad terrorists who murdered Israelis. Erdogan and Khamenei are just the latest examples of a long history of Islamic antisemitism.

“Iran’s Khamenei: Muslim nations reject ‘humiliation’ of compromise with Israel,” Times of Israel, October 21, 2020:

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei lashed out at the idea of Muslim nations compromising with Israel, calling it a “humiliation,” and issued an ominous warning to nations seeking to normalize ties with the Jewish state.

“Muslim nations will never accept the humiliation of compromising with the Zionist regime,” Khamenei tweeted Tuesday.

In recent months, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain became the first Arab nations to establish relations with Israel since Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994. Israeli and American officials have expressed hope that other Gulf Arab countries will soon follow suit, with relations based on mutual commercial and security interests and shared enmity toward Iran.

In his tweet, Khamenei targeted US foreign policy attempts to bridge the gap between Muslim nations and Israel in the absence of a formal agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. “If the US thinks they can solve the region’s problem in this way, they are wrong,” he said.

In a seeming warning to other Muslim nations that may normalize ties with Israel, Khamenei said, “The status of any regime that negotiates with the usurping Zionist regime will be shaken before its nation.”…

“The UAE betrayed the world of Islam, the Arab nations, the region’s countries, and Palestine,” he said. “The treason will not last for long.”….

 

Jewish Restaurant in BROOKLYN, NYC Hit With Coronavirus Fine For Leaving Door Open

“What if my store is hot? I’m not allowed to open the door?”

A video out of Brooklyn shows a city inspector handing out a COVID violation fine to a Jewish restaurant owner because he left his door open to let in some fresh air.

The clip, which has received over half a million views on Twitter, shows the owner complaining to the city inspector about being fined and hit with a court summons “for keeping my doors open.”

“You’re giving me a ticket because my doors are open, sir?” asks the owner.

He then points out that there is nobody inside the restaurant and adds, “What if my store is hot? I’m not allowed to open the door because the store is hot?”

The inspector refuses to engage, simply telling the owner, “Everything is spelled out in the summons.”

“I’m struggling here every single day, it’s hard for me,” says the owner, insisting that there was nobody in the restaurant because it only offers take-out.

“In a red zone, you’re only supposed to do pick up and delivery at the door,” states the inspector, to which the owner responds that he told the delivery man to stay outside when he came to pick up the food.

Restaurants in some areas of New York re-opened for indoor dining on September 30 but officials have re-introduced total bans in some areas of the city, citing a rise in coronavirus cases.

However, even in areas where indoor dining is allowed, capacity is restricted to 25% and tables must be separated by a minimum of 6 feet in all directions.

A recent report by the NYC Hospitality Alliance found that out of 450 city restaurants, around 87% failed to make full rental payments for August and 34% were unable to pay at all.

 

162 HOUSE DEMOCRATS VOTE AGAINST ANTISEMITISM AMENDMENT TO RIGHTS BILL

See the source image

BY WARREN MASS

SEE: https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/item/37107-162-house-democrats-vote-against-antisemitism-amendment-to-rights-bill;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

After Representative Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.) proposed an amendment to the Equity and Inclusion Enforcement Act (H.R. 2574) adding antisemitism to race, color, or national origin as a form of discrimination to be prohibited by the act, 162 Democrats in the House voted against Foxx’s amendment.

“With anti-Semitism on the rise around the world, the need for this amendment is clear,” Foxx said,

The summary of H.R. 2574 said that the bill “authorizes private civil causes of action for disparate impact violations … of federal regulations of general applicability that prohibit discrimination on the ground of race, color, or national origin in programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance.” The stated purpose of the bill, which was introduced by two Democrats, Bobby Scott of Virginia and John Conyers, Jr. of Michigan, was to strengthen Title VI of the Civil Rights Act by restoring “the right to individual civil actions in cases involving disparate impact.”

Most Republicans, including Foxx, initially opposed H.R. 2574. Foxx stated during debate: “The consequences of this legislation within the education community are very clear. The creation of a private right of action would lead to additional burdens on already taxed State and local agencies, especially school systems who would have to defend themselves against tenuous allegations advanced by parents and activists.”

When the speaker pro tempore asked Foxx, “Is the gentlewoman opposed to the bill?” Foxx answered, “I am in its present form.”

Foxx then moved to insert an amendment into the text that included this wording: “Antisemitism Considered Discrimination. — In carrying out the responsibilities of the recipient under this title, the employee or employees designated under this section shall consider antisemitism to be discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin as prohibited by this title.” 

Foxx continued: “If this House is going to radically rewrite title VI, as this bill does, we should use this opportunity to show commitment to combating anti-Semitism.”

One might think that this language would appeal to most Democrats, who usually describe themselves as champions of all minorities. However the vote indicated differently. While 66 Democrats voted for the amendment, enough to pass it when added to the votes of 189 Republicans, 162 voted “nay.” Among the 162 were all four members of the “squad” — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.)

H.R. 2574 passed in the House on September 16 by a vote of 232-188 and now goes on to the Senate. If the Senate passes it, President Trump will likely veto it. 

A September 14 statement issued by the Executive Office of the President begins: “The Administration strongly opposes passage of H.R. 2574.” The statement continues: “Granting a private cause of action for enforcement of such regulations would inevitably lead to a massive expansion of litigation involving recipients of Federal financial assistance, diverting resources toward litigation and away from education.” It concludes: “If H.R. 2574 were presented to the President, his advisors would recommend that he veto the bill.”

“The hospital discovered his social media rants and last year tried to fire Khass from his position as a pediatric resident, however, Khass took them to court and won his job back claiming the hospital wrongly fired him for violating his ‘freedom of speech.'”

That’s ridiculous. I’m a free speech absolutist, but there is no doubt that no one has the freedom or the right to call for harming other people. This man is supposed to be a doctor, but what will he do if he has a Jewish, Zionist, or Christian patient? He should not just be fired from New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital; he should be barred from practicing medicine immediately.

“‘Beat Up Zionists’: NY Doctor Tweets Violent Anti-Semitic Incitement, Permitted to Treat Jews,” by Yakir Benzion, United With Israel, September 13, 2020:

For the past two years New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital has been trying to fire a doctor with a history of posting anti-Semitic and violently anti-Israel messages on social media.

Next week, the hospital and Dr. Walid Khass will be back in court to address the doctor’s eight-year history of tweets denigrating Jews and calling for Israel’s destruction.

Before Khass was hired as a resident at the hospital, his reputation for virulently anti-Israel social media activity was known.

As far back as 2012, Khass tweeted “My beloved Palestine! Spit on you, Jew dogs!” His tweets continued as a medical student until his graduation from St. George’s University (SGU) School of Medicine in June 2019, reported Canary Mission, a watchdog organization that tracks anti-Semitism on campuses….

On August 1, 2014, Khass tweeted: “quran chapter 2 take not the christians and the jews for friends — I’m Muslim And Know This.”

On November 13, 2014, Khass tweeted: “Go Beat Up A Zionist, You’re Not You When You Don’t Beat Up A Zionist.”

His tweets are also racist including one on July 10, 2015, in which he said: “Israel Needs To Stop Payin Ethiopians To Pretend That They’re Jewish Just So They Can Have A Bigger Population.”

On February 9, 2017, Khass tweeted: “Trump Trust Me, The Only People Ruining Our Country Is The Zionist Israeli’s …. #FreePalestine.”

The Canary Mission website lists at least 57 tweets by Khass that call for violence, spread anti-Semitism, support the Hamas terror group, and spread hatred of Israel and calls for its destruction.

The hospital discovered his social media rants and last year tried to fire Khass from his position as a pediatric resident, however, Khass took them to court and won his job back claiming the hospital wrongly fired him for violating his “freedom of speech.”…

 

“NEVER FORGET?”~UP TO TWO-THIRDS OF YOUNG U.S. “ADULTS” IGNORANT OF THE HOLOCAUST

BY RICK MORAN

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/rick-moran/2020/09/16/never-forget-up-to-two-thirds-of-young-u-s-adults-ignorant-of-the-holocaust-n935390;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The Holocaust generation who lived through the horror and those that fought in the war to end the atrocities are almost all gone. Will the memory of the greatest crime in history go with them?

It seems incredible but a generational ignorance about the Holocaust is taking hold and threatens to make hollow the promise of our fathers and grandfathers never to allow such evil to exist ever again. The evidence is startling, appalling. A survey commissioned by the  Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany discovered a radical deficiency in knowledge of the recent past by young Americans ages 18-39.

Guardian:

Almost two-thirds of young American adults do not know that 6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust, and more than one in 10 believe Jews caused the Holocaust, a new survey has found, revealing shocking levels of ignorance about the greatest crime of the 20th century.

According to the study of millennial and Gen Z adults aged between 18 and 39, almost half (48%) could not name a single concentration camp or ghetto established during the second world war.

The ignorance is deliberate. We know that schools teach a curriculum that includes a survey of the events of the 1930s and 40s. We know that schools also teach specifics about the Holocaust. The Holocaust is part of popular culture — movies, plays, even YouTube videos.

If they don’t know about the Holocaust, how little must they know about Stalin’s Ukrainian famine, the Khmer Rouge, and Mao’s mass murders?

How is this possible?

Almost a quarter of respondents (23%) said they believed the Holocaust was a myth, or had been exaggerated, or they weren’t sure. One in eight (12%) said they had definitely not heard, or didn’t think they had heard, about the Holocaust.

How to reverse this trend?

“The results are both shocking and saddening, and they underscore why we must act now while Holocaust survivors are still with us to voice their stories,” said Gideon Taylor, president of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference) which commissioned the survey.

Taylor added: “We need to understand why we aren’t doing better in educating a younger generation about the Holocaust and the lessons of the past. This needs to serve as a wake-up call to us all, and as a road map of where government officials need to act.”

The ignorance may very well be a by-product of the information age. Young people are bombarded with messages, news, hype, ads — information of every kind. This has resulted in young people become quite discerning in the kinds of messages that are accepted and understood. When your face is stuck on your smartphone for most of your waking life, anything longer than 140 characters is usually dismissed.

The information is out there — all over the place. It’s not hiding. It’s not subliminal. It’s right in front of them — the horrific images, the testimony, the evidence.

But they don’t see it because they don’t want to see it. It’s not connected to their lives. And since they have no memory of it, it simply doesn’t exist.

We may have to rethink the entirety of our system of education. If kids and young adults are changing the way they learn, we are going to have to change the way we teach.

Until Bill Gates invents a Krell Mind Machine that can transfer knowledge to young people’s brains effortlessly, a way is going to have to be found to fight through the everyday clutter that kids have to deal with and impart essential and meaningful truths.

 

POPE FRANCIS’ NEW ENCYCLICAL TO PRAISE PALESTINIAN JIHAD TERROR SUPPORTER AS EXAMPLE OF “PEACE” & “FRATERNITY”

“All Brothers: On Fraternity and Social Friendship”

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Pope Francis’ new encyclical, Fratelli tutti: sulla fraternità e l’amicizia sociale (“All Brothers: On Fraternity and Social Friendship”) will be issued on October 3, the Vatican confirmed Saturday. According to Church Militant, the encyclical is “a sequel to his controversial Abu Dhabi pact with Grand Imam Ahmad al-Tayyeb last year, and will cite Abu Mazen [Mahmoud Abbas], a Palestinian backer of terrorism, as an example of ‘peace’ and ‘fraternity.’” No, this is not the Babylon Bee; this is real.

It gets even worse. According to Vatican News, “The theme of fraternity is also present in [the Pope’s] constant embrace of migrants, epitomized in his pastoral visit to Lampedusa. His signing of the Document on Human Fraternity in Abu Dhabi in 2019 marks one more example of Pope Francis’ dedication to promoting brotherly love.”

Brotherly love. As I told Church Militant, Mahmoud Abbas has made it abundantly clear over the years that he doesn’t want peace, but the total destruction of Israel as a Jewish state and the eradication of all Jews from the region. After two jihad groups, the Mourabitoun and the Mourabitat, began violent riots on the Temple Mount in September 2015, he applauded: “We bless you; we bless the Mourabitoun and the Mourabitat. We welcome every drop of blood spilled in Jerusalem. This is pure blood, clean blood, blood on its way to Allah. With the help of Allah, every shaheed (martyr) will be in heaven, and every wounded will get his reward. All of their steps, we will not allow them. All these divisions, Al-Aqsa is ours, and the (Church of the) Holy Sepulcher is ours, everything is ours, all ours. They (the Jews) have no right to desecrate them with their filthy feet and we won’t allow them to.”

Abbas envisions the total expulsion of Jews from a Palestinian state: “In a final resolution, we would not see the presence of a single Israeli – civilian or soldier – on our lands.” And as for regarding all human beings as brothers, both Sunni and Shi’ite Islam teach that the lives of non-Muslims are not worth as much as the lives of Muslims. Reliance of the Traveller, a classic Sunni manual of Islamic sacred law, explains matter-of-factly that “the indemnity for the death or injury of a woman is one-half the indemnity paid for a man. The indemnity paid for a Jew or Christian is one-third the indemnity paid for a Muslim. The indemnity paid for a Zoroastrian is one-fifteenth that of a Muslim” (o4.9). The Qur’an calls “the unbelievers among the People of the Book,” that is, Jews and Christians who do not accept Islam, “the most vile of created beings” (Qur’an 98:6).

Sultan Hussein Tabandeh, the Shi’ite author of A Muslim Commentary on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, agrees, stating:

Thus if [a] Muslim commits adultery his punishment is 100 lashes, the shaving of his head, and one year of banishment. But if the man is not a Muslim and commits adultery with a Muslim woman his penalty is execution. … Similarly if a Muslim deliberately murders another Muslim he falls under the law of retaliation and must by law be put to death by the next of kin. But if a non-Muslim who dies at the hand of a Muslim has by lifelong habit been a non-Muslim, the penalty of death is not valid. Instead the Muslim murderer must pay a fine and be punished with the lash. … Since Islam regards non-Muslims as on a lower level of belief and conviction, if a Muslim kills a non-Muslim, then his punishment must not be the retaliatory death, since the faith and conviction he possesses is loftier than that of the man slain…Again, the penalties of a non-Muslim guilty of fornication with a Muslim woman are augmented because, in addition to the crime against morality, social duty and religion, he has committed sacrilege, in that he has disgraced a Muslim and thereby cast scorn upon the Muslims in general, and so must be executed. … Islam and its peoples must be above the infidels, and never permit non-Muslims to acquire lordship over them.

But the Pope’s encyclical is certain to ignore all of this, and it is likely that the pontiff is completely unaware of it. The encyclical will mislead millions of Catholics into a complacency that could be fatal.

“Leave them; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit” (Matthew 15:14).

JOE BIDEN GOES TO KENOSHA, WISCONSIN & KILLS OFF WHAT’S LEFT OF THE #METOO MOVEMENT

BIDEN TOUCHING ATLANTA MAYOR KEISHA LANCE BOTTOMS:

BY STACEY LENNOX

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/election/stacey-lennox/2020/09/03/joe-biden-goes-to-kenosha-and-kills-off-whats-left-of-the-metoo-movement-n883421;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Joe Biden is leaving the basement today to go to Kenosha, Wisconsin. He is not going to survey the damage or provide solutions for business owners and residents whose lives and businesses have been destroyed. He’s not going to explain how he will support law enforcement in providing security for the law-abiding residents of Kenosha.

Instead, the centerpiece of his visit that is being promoted is his meeting with the family of Jacob Blake. Biden is going to lionize a man accused of sexual assault, who had a warrant out for his arrest, then showed up at the home of his alleged victim, and actively resisted arrest while trying to retrieve a knife from his car. He marched to the driver’s side door while officers were telling him to stop and tazed him twice to impede his progress.

Specifically, ABC notes that Biden will be meeting with Jacob Blake Sr. As described in this article at Heavy, the father has a significant history of anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, anti-white, and misogynistic social media posts (language warning). He also appears to be a supporter of Louis Farrakhan. And the effective leader of the Democrat Party will participate in a community meeting with this man to “bring together Americans to heal and address the challenges we face.” Irony anyone?

Joe Biden Has a Glaring Anti-Semitism Problem

The shooting by police is still under investigation. Blake is under investigation for sexual assault with a child present, stealing the victim’s car, and theft via swiping her ATM card as well as his actions on the day of the shooting. Yet, Biden is actively taking sides when the outcome is far from clear. If you watch the ad released in advance of the visit, the side he is taking is obvious.

The ad is called “We’re Listening.” The campaign is listening to the loudest and most violent voices and buying into an absolute meme. There is no data to support the idea that black Americans are being shot indiscriminately by police for “just living their life.” This is certainly not the case with Jacob Blake.

Unless Biden and Harris believe “living your life” includes the right to harass your alleged victim and attempting to brandish a weapon at police. Perhaps they do. There is also zero evidence police are shooting black men for just going about their legal business. There is significant evidence, in cities like Chicago, that black men, women, and children are being shot “living their lives,” and the vast majority of perpetrators are other black men.

In fact, the majority of black children who have been killed in the last 90 days have been caught in the crossfire of black-on-black crime in our lawless cities, where cash bail has been eliminated and prisoners are released because of the pandemic. Horrifically, this occurred in my state when Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms decided to negotiate with terrorists at a burnt-out Wendy’s rather than deal with the chaos.

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms Doesn’t Have the Courage to Clear a Wendy’s Parking Lot, and Now a Little Girl Is Dead.

Yet, Biden and Harris want to take these terrible policies nationwide. The same policies that resulted in an attempted rape on an Upper East Side subway platform in broad daylight in New York City. The polices that allow alleged rapists to be released from jail and kill their accusers. For a party that touted their nominee’s achievement passing the Violence Against Women Act, this is a shocking level of cognitive dissonance.

Face it, ladies. When the Democrats feel like pandering to another group will benefit them politically, they will turn their back on your safety. Whether they are releasing violent criminals back onto the streets, taking away your right to self-defense, or turning a man accused of sexual assault into the victim, your safety is not the priority.

Make no mistake about it. If this police shooting had happened under the same circumstances in Peoria rather than Kenosha, and the suspect was white and the officer was black, the coverage would be completely different. The focus would be on the alleged victim and the crime against her. That is, if the story was covered at all. Yet no one in the corporate media is talking about Blake’s victim or why she called the police in the first place.

A similar lack of coverage was undoubtedly the case with the murder of five-year-old Cannon Hinnant, who was white, by his black neighbor. There was also national media silence in the case of eight-year-old Secoriea Turner, the victim in the  Atlanta version of CHOP at the burned-out Wendy’s. The murder of one-year-old Davell Turner in New York City was also largely ignored.

After Mayor de Blasio Disbands Anti-Crime Unit, Shootings in New York Skyrocket

It is also extraordinary that the solutions they promote in the ad, like national standards for the use of force, have already been up for a vote in Congress. Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) has been a proponent of police reform for years. Democrats refused even to debate the bill he proposed recently on the issue. In a genuinely disgusting statement, Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) referred to the bill as “token” legislation. Who’s the bigot?

This visit and all the problematic aspects of it are the end result of a strategy that relies on pandering to every identity or interest group you think you can appeal to. With this move, Biden and Harris are effectively putting the final knife in the #MeToo movement.

President Trump should immediately begin talking about how dangerous the policies of Democrats are for women. No cash bail, mandating housing of former inmates, and taking zoning to the national level will make every community less safe for law-abiding citizens.

Joe Biden’s America will look an awful lot like cities such as New York City and Chicago. It is not one anyone who values safety and security should want to live in.

ANTI-SEMITIC ARSON AT UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE~INVESTIGATORS CONFIRM ARSON AS CAUSE OF FIRE

Newark Mayor Jerry Clifton said “it is heartbreaking to learn the fire at the Chabad center was set intentionally.”

 A fire at the Chabad House at the University of Delaware in Newark has been ruled an arson, according to investigators.

The building was set ablaze on Tuesday at about 11 p.m. Damages were estimated to be between $150,000 and $200,000.

The Chabad center will need to be completely demolished and rebuilt, Rabbi Motti Flikshtein, program director at Chabad of Wilmington, told JNS.

According to Flikshtein, the arson was not a case of anti-Semitism, as the University of Delaware Chabad was one of a number of buildings that have been set ablaze by a serial arsonist in the area.

fundraising page has been set up to help rebuild the Chabad. As of press time, it has raised more than $52,500 with a fundraising goal of $75,000. And a criminal investigation is ongoing.

Classes at the university are scheduled to begin next week.

“The attack at the University of Delaware is a stark and painful reminder that anti-Semitism is alive and well in the United States in 2020,” said Orthodox Union executive director for public policy Nathan Diament in a statement. “Even in the midst of a pandemic, there is no time to pause our vigilance against such heinous acts of anti-Semitism. We must continue to do everything we can to protect the Jewish community against those who seek to do us harm.”

Rabbi Jacob Lieberman, president of Delaware Rabbis and Cantors, and Seth J. Katzen, president and CEO of the Jewish Federation of Delaware, said in a statement that “while this heinous act of intentional damage and destruction has yet to be and may not be determined by our local authorities to be a hate crime, our Jewish community is nonetheless alarmed by this act of aggression against one of our communal institutions.

“At a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise, an incident like this, whether officially a hate crime or not, touches many of us in a deeper way as trauma,” they said. “It is upsetting to learn that any Jewish community has been intentionally harmed through arson or vandalism, let alone one in the heart of our very own community.”

In a statement, Newark Mayor Jerry Clifton said “it is heartbreaking to learn the fire at the Chabad center was set intentionally.”

“This is a sickening act of hostility that threatens the safety and security of our inclusive, welcoming neighborhoods. My thoughts are with the Jewish community and those affected by this tragedy,” he continued. “I have faith that the Newark Police Department and partner agencies will work tirelessly to identify the individual or individuals responsible and bring them to justice.”

Anyone with information about the arson should call the Delaware Fire Marshal at 302-323-5375 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.

 

 

OHIO: MUSLIM DOCTOR WHO VOWED TO GIVE JEWS “WRONG MEDICINES” FINALLY HAS HER MEDICAL LICENSE REVOKED

I called for the revocation of her medical license back in January 2019. In the Hippocratic Oath, doctors pledge that they will “do no harm or injustice” to their patients. Kollab not only repeatedly expressed her vehement hatred for Jews, but actually stated explicitly that she would give them the wrong medicine in order to do them harm. Her license should have been revoked immediately. But better late than never.

“Ex-Cleveland Clinic resident makes antisemitic posts, has license revoked,” by Rachel Wolf and Marcy Oster, JTA, August 22, 2020:

Lara Kollab, a former Cleveland Clinic resident, had her certification permanently revoked by The State Medical Board of Ohio on August 12 after making antisemitic social media posts, Cleveland.com reported. She is now “permanently prohibited from practicing osteopathic medicine or surgery in the state of Ohio, or from participating in another medical training program,” the website added.

In revoking her certificate, the board cited 11 posts she wrote from August 2011-September 2013, and a January 2012 tweet in which she wrote that she would give Jewish patients the wrong medication, Cleveland.com reported.

“hahha ewww.. ill purposely give all the yahood [Jews] the wrong meds…,” Kollab tweeted in January 2012.

When she was accepted to Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, a private Jewish university in New York City, she deleted the tweets and comments, but some were already preserved as screenshots.

In an August 2013 post, Kollab wrote in Arabic, “May Allah take back [end the lives] of the Jews so we stop being forced to go to those unclean ones.”

In December 2018, after the posts were discovered, Kollab was fired.

“This individual was employed as a supervised resident at our hospital from July to September 2018. She is no longer working at Cleveland Clinic. In no way do these beliefs reflect those of our organization. We fully embrace diversity, inclusion and a culture of safety and respect across our entire health system,” the Cleveland Clinic said in a statement at the time.

Kollab later apologized, saying that the posts “do not represent who I am and the principles I stand for today.”…

3 JEWISH STUDENTS FORCED OUT OF USC STUDENT GOVERNMENT FOR PRO-ISRAEL VIEWS

Students for Justice in Palestine purges Jews from USC student government.

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/08/3-jewish-students-forced-out-usc-student-daniel-greenfield/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

Truman Fritz and Rose Ritch won the most votes in the race for president and vice president of the USC Undergraduate Student Government. Isabel Washington scored the most votes in the Senate race. Six months later, all three USC students were harassed into resigning.

The story of how that happened exposes the ugliness of campus bullying and anti-Semitism.

Of the three USC student government leaders and one student who was next in the line of succession who were forced out, three were Jewish, one of them gay, and one was African-American. The cancel culture campaigns against them were led by Islamic students.

Three of the four students were targeted for supporting Israel.

Isabel Washington, a Jewish African-American student senator, was the first to be forced out after false accusations of “anti-black racism,” of holding “white supremacist ideologies,” and, of “Islamophobia and anti-Palestinian statements.”

Shaden Awad, an RA at USC, and apparently a supporter of American Muslims for Palestine, attacked Washington for her role at Hillel, a Jewish campus organization where Washington serves as the Jews of Color Co-Chair, writing “Even if all the orgs on campus that r Jewish r also Zionist That’s not an excuse For you to join That’s still blood on ur hands.”

"I didn't join them bc they're zionist. I joined them because I'm Jewish," Washington replied.

A petition calling for her expulsion, with over 1,200 signatures, declares that "a woman with years of internalized racism, classism, and Zionism behind her should not be given the luxury of being a USC student."

The same petition also went after Nathaniel Manor, who would have been next in line to succeed Washington,, because he “openly identifies as a Zionist” and had communicated, "in texts that Palestinians are dying because they refuse to 'let Israel exist', blaming Palestinian people for their own displacement and genocide."

Some of the petition signatories had been involved with Students for Justice in Palestine.

After outrage at the antisemitism scandal at USC went viral, the anonymous creator updated the petition to argue that, “being anti-Zionist and being anti-Semitic are not the same.”

"USC SJP calls for the immediate resignation of Isabel Washington as a USG senator and the prevention of Nathaniel Manor from succeeding Senator Washington and demands that the University hold Mr. Manor accountable for his display of Islamophobia and anti-Arab/Palestinian rhetoric," the USC chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, an antisemitic hate group with a long history of harassing Jewish students, posted.

Manor had been targeted by Muhammad Yusuf Tarr, the former president of USC SJP and a Muslim Student Association leader, an organization with its own history of antisemitism, who had celebrated a call by Marwan Barghouti to free convicted terrorists.

Barghouti was convicted of responsibility for 5 murders, including that of a Greek monk. But at USC being someone who, “openly identifies as a Zionist” is a serious offense, but not supporting the murder of Jews and anyone else living in Israel who doesn’t support terrorists.

When David Horowitz came to USC to speak about Islamic antisemitism, Muhammad had protested against his talk. And that’s still a topic that can’t be discussed at USC.

While Jewish student leaders have been purged, SJP is free to operate on campus.

That's despite the fact that Students for Justice in Palestine is a racist hate group whose various chapters have a long history of harassing and even physically assaulting Jewish students.

“I was physically assaulted in an elevator in 2013.  I heard my friend get called a ‘Zionist kike’ by SJP. Today I was called a ‘kike’ on campus by SJP. My two female friends and I were shoved to the ground and physically assaulted at our own Israel event in 2014,” a University of California student related.

Rawan Eid, USC SJP's former president, had expressed support for Hezbollah and other terrorists responsible for killing Jews.

But at USC, being a member of SJP allows you to demand the heads of Jewish students.

In addition to targeting Isabel Washington, SJP had also demanded the "the immediate resignation of Truman Fritz and Rose Ritch from their positions as President and Vice President of the Undergraduate Student Government."

Rose had been one of the reasons why Isabel was targeted.

“Seeing people want to impeach Rose bc she’s a Zionist, but they don’t know I’d be the new VP, and I’m also a Zionist,” Isabel had posted.

The antisemitism crisis at USC finally went viral when Rose stepped down from her role as vice president with a resignation letter that described being "harassed and pressured for weeks".

"I have been told that my support for Israel has made me complicit in racism, and that, by association, I am racist. Students launched an aggressive social media campaign to 'impeach [my] Zionist a**’,”' she wrote.

Another letter to President Carol Folt of USC by the Brandeis Center, a Jewish civil rights organization, documented part of the sustained pattern of antisemitic harassment of Ritch.

Abeer Tijani, a Muslim USC student, had led the impeachment campaign, claiming that Ritch, "has been outspoken on issues that alienate Palestinian Trojans". While Tijani later went on to deny that she meant that being pro-Israel was impeachable, her words speak for themselves.

More attacks on the Jewish VP came from Emad Askar, the Director of Health and Wellness of USC's Interfraternity Council and a member of the Students for Justice in Palestine hate group.

Emad falsely claimed that "Zionism is not Judaism," defending his attacks on Ritch by insisting that the "occupation of Palestine represents a larger struggle of oppression for numerous groups in the United States and throughout the world.”

When Isabel Washington was forced to resign, Emad whined that the student government hadn’t condemned her as a “zionist.”

Even during the election, Ritch was attacked for her role in Trojans for Israel.

“There never was an explicit like, ‘dirty Jew,’ like anyone ever invoking even the word ‘Jew.’ It was all under that kind of cloak of anti-Zionism,” she said.

President Carol Folt of USC responded to Ritch’s resignation letter by calling it “heartbreaking” and touted the USC Shoah Foundation's Stronger Than Hate program as the answer. But the Stronger Than Hate program praises the [email protected] instagram account which played a key role in inciting attacks on Jewish students and its only mention of the antisemitism crisis, among its rants about George Floyd and ICE, put the blame on the Jewish students.

"Several members of the USC USG government resigned amidst accusations and revelations of microaggressions, racist memes and expressions of antisemitism," its mission paper notes.

It fails to mention that the students were Jewish and the victims of antisemitic harassment.

The word "Jewish" only appears 3 times in a 19 page program from the Shoah Foundation which had been created to record the testimonies of Holocaust survivors, but now touts Black Lives Matter while dismissing antisemitic harassment at USC. Israel isn’t mentioned at all.

Stronger Than Hate is not the solution to what happened at USC: it’s a symptom of the problem.

Folt’s letter failed to note the role that campus hate groups like Students for Justice in Palestine have played and continue to play in the harassment of Jewish students. She did not address the fact that multiple Jewish student leaders, not just one, had been forced out by the harassment. And she did not condemn any specific acts, including the petition, or any of the harassers.

That’s a far cry from USC’s response when a Trojans booster had tweeted that BLM was a terrorist group. That woman was quickly banned from buying tickets or attending USC games.

The double standard is blatantly grotesque.

Criticising BLM will get you banned from USC, but harassing Jewish students will not only result in your demands being met, but will earn you a spot of honor at the USC Shoah Foundation.

“This is antisemitism, and cannot be tolerated at a University that proclaims to 'nurture an environment of mutual respect and tolerance,'” Ritch wrote in her letter of resignation.

USC is in violation of its own codes and those of the Department of Education.

President Folt stated that, "what happened to Rose Ritch is unacceptable, and we must all take up her challenge to do better.”

That should begin with confronting campus hate groups like Students for Justice in Palestine.

Two of the three Jewish students targeted by SJP and its campus allies had impeccable progressive credentials. One was black and the other was gay. That did not save them. They were not harassed because they were insufficiently politically correct on any issue. Except one.

Rose Ritch and Isabel Washington’s work with Hillel made them targets. As did Ritch’s role at Trojans for Israel. It was their Jewish affiliations that led to the harassment. Their tormentors had made it their goal to ban any pro-Israel Jewish students from holding student government offices. This is not a new tactic. It was innovated by Hatem Bazian: SJP’s founding father.

“Hatem Bazian was more responsible than any other student on campus for trying to make life miserable for Jewish students,” Rabbi Doug Kahn, who led Jewish outreach in San Francisco, had charged.

Bazian’s tactics included blocking a Jewish student from sitting on the Student Judicial Council at SFSU because he “supported the state of Israel and was therefore, by definition, a racist."

More recently, SJP had targeted student government leaders at UCLA for taking trips to Israel. And a student was asked if being Jewish would be a “conflict of interest” when sitting on the student judicial board. At UC Santa Cruz, a Jewish member of the student government was warned to abstain from a BDS vote because he had been “elected with a Jewish agenda.”

This is swiftly becoming the new normal. And there are no sanctions for this strategic harassment of Jewish students on campuses where wearing the wrong Halloween costume or posting something dumb as a 15-year-old can end a college career before it even gets started.

College presidents issue letters claiming to be troubled or concerned. And then do nothing.

As long as Students for Justice in Palestine is free to target and harass Jewish students for supporting the existence of a Jewish State, USC and other campuses are safe spaces for hate.

 

THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS GETTING RID OF THE JEWS

Kamala Harris, who defended Omar’s Jew-hate, could sit in the Oval Office.

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

The Democrat primaries are sweeping around the nation and leaving behind fewer Jewish Democrats in public office and more antisemitic radicals sitting in the House of Representatives.

Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib both survived challenges from better qualified African-Americans because they enjoyed the backing of the Democrat establishment.

Despite her antisemitic rhetoric, a habit that Omar continued during the primary, she got the endorsement of Speaker Pelosi. The top elected Democrat official also endorsed Tlaib.

After Omar’s first round of antisemitic remarks, Senator Kamala Harris defended the racist politician against her Jewish critics by warning “that the spotlight being put on Congresswoman Omar may put her at risk.”

Omar’s antisemitism wasn’t threatening Jews, but Jewish protests were threatening the bigot.

Then Harris insisted that, “there is a difference between criticism of policy... and anti-Semitism."

The California politician didn’t bother to explain how Omar’s antisemitic tropes were mere policy.

Senator Harris has since been picked as Biden’s running mate. If Biden wins, a politician who defended Omar’s antisemitism will almost certainly become the next president of this country.

While Harris has been depicted as a moderate, her chief of staff, Karine Jean-Pierre, was the national spokeswoman and senior adviser for MoveOn. The radical group has a long history of trafficking in antisemitism and attacking the Jewish State. It even opposed Senator Schumer because, in its own words, “our country doesn’t need another Joe Lieberman.”

Jean-Pierre had accused Israel of "war crimes" and denounced AIPAC as "Islamophobic" for opposing the murder of Jews, urging Democrats to avoid the pro-Israel convention.

The myth that the radicals of the squad were insurgent “giant-slayers” who were taking on the Democrat establishment was branding. The reality is that the radicals are backed by a radical establishment which is cheerfully shedding older Dems with more traditional constituencies.

That includes Jews.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, the squad leader who supported Omar’s pro-BDS resolution, has a speaking slot at the Democrat convention. A letter on her site, signed by the congresswoman, accuses Israel of becoming an apartheid state and threatens to cut off aid.

Rep. Cortez's email in support of the move touted the backing of BDS groups and extremist organizations linked to terrorist groups like the PFLP and Hamas. These groups include American Muslims for Palestine, whose chairman, Hatem Bazian was the architect of the harassment of Jews on college campuses as the founder of Students for Justice in Palestine.

When Israel resisted a Hamas invasion from Gaza, Rep. Cortez accused Israel of a "massacre".

Jewish Democrats can’t keep on pretending that these views are marginal when they occupy a speaking role at their convention between John Kerry and Bill Clinton.

All this matters a whole lot more than the policy theater over the Democrat platform.

What’s at stake for Jewish Democrats is not just policy: it’s representation.

The number of Protestants and Jews has been dropping in Congress, an inevitable consequence of secularization and diversity. The DNC's parade of speeches will open with Senator Bernie Sanders, an atheist with a Brooklyn accent who isn’t part of a Jewish community. And he’s the prototype for the new type of “Jewish” Democrat.

Jewish House Democrats who represented Jewish constituencies are losing their seats.

The 117th Congress will have only two Jewish House Democrats from New York after Rep. Elliot Engel was defeated and Rep. Nita Lowey was replaced by minority radicals backed by Sanders and Cortez. New Jersey’s lone Jewish congressman survived an assault by a Cortez/Sanders backed radical.

How is it possible that the largest Jewish population in the country has so few Jewish House members? Democrats have strategically gerrymandered New York City to deny representation to Jewish areas by rolling them into minority areas where only the radicals can win.

Jewish Democrats used to hold public office because they were elected by Jewish voters. That’s no longer true in New York. It’s still true in Florida and a few other states. But not for long.

The new “Jewish” Democrat is a radical activist who has no ties to the Jewish community. He or she may not even be Jewish. Rep. Cortez has claimed that she has Jewish roots because “to be Puerto Rican is to be the descendant of African Moors & slaves, Taino Indians, Spanish colonizers, Jewish refugees, and likely others.” Then who needs actual Jews anyway?

The radical hijackers of the Democrats have been playing this game for a while.

“I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office," Obama had insisted.

As Senator Kamala Harris hits the campaign trail, look for her to tout her Jewish husband, and to endlessly retell the same story about her mother-in-law. Politics is built on lame ethnic pandering, but these tired routines are obscuring something much more deeply disturbing.

Obama and Harris both signed off on Iran’s nuclear program and the flow of money to terrorists. And they’ve covered that disturbing fact over with happy talk about all their Jewish friends.

Obama’s policies led to the murder of Jews. He loved Jews so much he couldn’t stop killing them.

Senator Cory Booker thrilled Jewish Democrats with his ability to recite a few Hebrew phrases, and then worked hard to protect black nationalist terrorists who murdered Jews in his state.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez claims to be Jewish because she’s Puerto Rican while coordinating with the allies of the terrorists who are killing Jews.

Meanwhile, Jewish voters are increasingly not being represented at a communal level.

Some of the largest traditional Jewish communities in the country are being represented by radicals like Rep. Yvette Clarke, Rep. Karen Bass, or Rep. Nydia Velasquez who are overtly hostile to Israel, and uninterested in actually representing Jews in their gerrymandered districts.

The relationship between Jewish communities and elected officials is being broken. And that has implications well beyond Israel, BDS, or Iran. It means that Jews are no longer a Democrat constituency. That’s a reality that is quietly sinking in for many Jewish Democrat professionals, especially after the purge of Rep. Elliot Engel by a radical backed not only by AOC, but Obama.

According to Jamaal Bowman, Obama decided to endorse him after reading his response to a liberal Jewish clergyman rejecting his call to fight BDS and bashing Israel's military.

Most Jewish Democrat voters are steadily refusing to pay attention to this phenomenon.

And yet there’s only so many rants about Trump, so many furious New York Times and Washington Post op-eds to be scrolled through at the breakfast table that can keep the ugly reality of what a radicalized Democrat Party means for Jewish communities at bay.

It’s not just that the Democrats are turning against Israel, they’re turning against Jews.

Not Jews in the abstract sense. Democrat politicians can, like Senator Cory Booker, keep a Hebrew copy of the Bible in their office, they can, like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, claim Jewish roots, or, like Barack Obama, claim to be Jewish in some vague sense of values.

None of this has anything to do with actual Jews, their interests, communities, and lives, but it does a wonderful job of flattering the insecure neurosis that makes some Jews lean leftward.

Obama had won by reducing America to a set of leftist values. He did the same thing to Jews. But when you reduce people to your own abstractions and slogans, you’re appropriating them. Marxists worshiped the working class as an abstraction and terrorized the actual working class. Because they claimed to stand for “the people”, they never had to pay attention to real people.

The appropriation of the Jews transforms a people into a set of leftist slogans. And then Democrats from Barack Obama to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez are free to support policies that lead to the murder of actual Jews in the name of their leftist abstractions of Jewish values.

The American political system doesn’t recognize constituencies as abstractions, but as people. The Democrats are building a new one-party state in which elections are irrelevant and primaries exist to broker arrangements between intersectional non-profits funded by billionaires. Actual Jewish communities are an annoying inconvenience in this Marxist political system.

Democrats with Jewish last names will still exist, they just won’t represent anyone except the roster of non-profits like Bend the Arc, J Street, Jewish Voice for Peace, Jews for Racial and Economic Justice or If Not Now, that are not only actively working to get Jews killed, but that don’t represent anyone except George Soros or Buffett’s son. And attacking Soros for his radical extremism is the only thing that Democrats will even recognize as antisemitism anymore.

The pattern ought to be a familiar one from how leftist regimes dealt with Jewish populations.

There’s not much of a future for Jewish communities in this model. The cities and suburbs where Jews live are under siege in the name of social justice. Jewish communities are simultaneously losing their representation within the Democrats in the name of social justice.

Jewish Democrats who imagine that Israel is the problem are about to learn they’re the problem.

The problem, as in the USSR, is that many Jewish communities are bourgeois enclaves filled with middle class professionals, two-parent families who raise their children to succeed, go to a good college, get an even better job, get married, and raise their own children in a suburb with safe streets, challenging schools, and the rest of what used to be the American Dream.

Like most suburbanites, they aren’t actually radical. They just stupidly enable the radicals. And the radicals, once they take power, are not going to tolerate them. They’re going to get rid of them. It’s already happening. And, unlike the 70s, there won’t be any suburbs to run away to.

A decade ago there were six Jewish House Democrats out of New York. Now there are two.

What happened in the short span of a decade is that the radical future of the Democrats arrived. And there’s no room in that radical new world that the Democrats are building for the Jews.



TWITTER ALLOWS IRAN’S SUPREME LEADER TO KEEP POSTING HIS ANNIHILATIONIST THREATS

BY HUGH FITZGERALD

While Twitter allowed the rapper Wiley to post his antisemitic rants, and only banned him from the platform after a widespread boycott of Twitter was underway, it has been consistently solicitous of another, much more dangerous antisemite, the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The story is here.

A Twitter official on Wednesday informed Israeli lawmakers that tweets in which Iranian officials, in particular Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, pledge to eradicate the Jewish state are not in violation of the social media giant’s rules against hate speech.

Ylwa Pettersson, Twitter’s head policy for the Nordic countries and Israel said that such posts are considered mere “foreign policy saber-rattling.”

Is it mere “foreign policy saber rattling” to repeatedly call for the complete destruction of the Jewish state and the murder, or expulsion, of its Jewish inhabitants? “Foreign policy sabre-rattling” occurs when, for example, Turkish President Erdogan threatens to push the Kurds in northern Syria all the way south to the Iraqi border, or when President Putin warns the Ukraine that “Russia will fight to keep the Crimea,” or when General El-Sisi warns that Egyptian troops will enter Libya if the GNA (Government of National Accord) forces, with Turkish help, push east beyond Sirte. No genocidal threats of any kind: Erdogan does not announce his troops will kill all the Kurds. Putin does not threaten to “destroy” the Ukraine and all of its inhabitants; El-Sisi does not threaten to annihilate all the Libyans supporting the GNA. The Supreme Leader’s tweets about Israel are very different. He is not merely sabre-rattling, but expressing, on many occasions, his genocidal desire to destroy not just the Jewish state, but the men, women, and children in Israel.

Khamenei has compared Israel to a “cancerous tumor” and to the coronavirus, and he has called for the nation to be “uprooted and destroyed.” The ayatollah, who wields complete control over the regime, made similar comments on July 22 in an in-person speech.

Some argue that the Zionist regime is a reality that the region must come to terms with,” Khamenei said in one tweet. “Today the #Covid_19 is a reality; should it be accepted or fought?! The long-lasting virus of Zionism will be uprooted thanks to the determination and faith of the youth. #Covid1948.” You do not merely shrink “a cancerous tumor,” but must eliminate it altogether; the same is true for the coronavirus, which must be eradicated by means of a vaccine. Khamenei means for us to understand that the size of the “Zionist state” does not matter; he implies that even were Israel to be squeezed back within the 1949 armistice lines, that would still leave the “cancer” of a Jewish state within the Muslim body politic. And that is why they need not merely to be reduced in size, but completely eliminated.

Twitter’s rules on terrorism and violent extremism state: “There is no place on Twitter for … individuals who affiliate with and promote [terrorist group’s] illicit activities. … Our assessments in this context are informed by national and international terrorism designations.”

Ayatollah Khamenei, and Iran, support with weapons and financing the terror group Hezbollah. The U.S., Great Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and many other countries, as well as the E.U. as a whole, now have recognized both wings – political and military – of Hezbollah as part of one terror group, and all Hezbollah activities are banned in those countries. Meanwhile, Iran is the sole backer of Hezbollah, and has supplied it with 140,000 missiles and rockets, which Hezbollah has hidden all over southern Lebanon and southern Beirut, for use against Israel in some future war. Iran also has been supplying Hezbollah with large amounts of money; until Iran’s current financial troubles began, Ayatollah Khamenei was giving the terror group $800 million a year. Doesn’t that clearly show that Ayatollah Khamenei, according to Twitter’s own rules, is an “individual who affiliates with and promotes terrorist groups [Hezbollah] illicit activities”? What more evidence does one need than the 140,000 missiles Iran has supplied to Hezbollah, and the $800 million a year subsidy that Khamenei has also been sending to Hezbollah, a recognized terror group? Apparently that’s not enough for Twitter. What would it take to have Twitter ban the Supreme Leader?

“We have an approach toward leaders that says that direct interactions with fellow public figures, comments on political issues of the day, or foreign policy saber-rattling on military-economic issues are generally not in violation of our rules,” Pettersson was quoted by the Times of Israel as telling the Knesset’s Committee for Immigration, Absorption, and Diaspora Affairs, via video-conference.

“Calling for genocide on Twitter is okay, but commenting on the political situation in certain countries is not okay?” asked Blue and White MK Michal Cotler-Wunsh, to which Pettersson reportedly replied, “If a world leader violates our rules but there is a clear interest in keeping that up on the service we may place it behind a notice that provides some more context about the violation and allows people to click through if they wish to see that type of content.”

“Wow. Twitter just admitted that tweets calling genocide against Jews by Iranian leaders DON’T violate its policy!”, Cotler-Wunsh tweeted after the session ended. “This is a double standard. This is antisemitism.”

A spokesperson for Twitter later said that tweets the likes of which are posted by Khamenei “are not in violation of our policies,” pointing to the company’s policy according to which “foreign policy saber-rattling on economic or military issues are generally not in violation of the Twitter Rules.”

The genocidal threats of Khamenei don’t violate Twitter’s policy because, according to Twitter, they constitute mere “foreign policy saber-ratting on military or economic issues.” Would Tweeter feel the same if President Trump posted on Tweeter threats to wipe Iran from the face of the earth, and kill or expel every last Iranian? Would the resultant outcry lead it to conclude that this went beyond mere “foreign policy saber-rattling on military matters”? I’m sure it would. I’m convinced that Twitter would take down such posts very quickly, announcing that “these are genocidal threats, beyond all rational discussion and serving no useful purpose for public debate. Twitter will not tolerate such a use of its platform, and such tweets, even if by the President, have been and will continue to be promptly taken down.”

But when it comes to Israel, a foreign leader’s repeated threat to destroy the entire country of Israel and eradicate its Jewish citizens – though it certainly “serves no useful purpose for public debate” — is just fine for Tweeter. It meets the company’s standard of merely being “foreign policy sabre rattling on military issues.” So that’s all it is! From Ayatollah Khomeini, and Mahmoud Ahmedinajad, to Ayatollah Khamenei, issuing their threats against Israel, it’s all been mere “saber-rattling.” The nuclear project, that Iran has continued to pursue despite its many setbacks and the sanctions it has incurred, and the medium-range ballistic missiles it has built, that could potentially be armed with nuclear warheads – well, Twitter thinks there is nothing to worry about, because when the Supreme Leader tweets that Israel should be destroyed, the Ayatollah doesn’t mean it. He’s engaging, Twitter knows (from the profound study of Twelver-Shi’ism undertaken by its executives), not in a real threat, but only in mere “foreign-policy saber-rattling.” That should calm the Israelis down considerably.

 

JEW HATRED: CALIFORNIA SCHOOL BOARDS COME OUT IN FAVOR OF ANTI-SEMITIC CURRICULUM PRAISING REPS. OMAR, TLAIB & SARSOUR

ISLAMIC JIHADISTS TO BE INCORPORATED IN ANTI-SEMITIC BRAINWASHING OF CHILDREN IN CALIFORNIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS:

Ever wonder exactly how schools breed America-haters? Here’s how.

A Leftist protester in Portland recently announced that the goal of the riots that have recently swept the nation is the “abolition of the United States as we know it,” to the applause of her audience (which included not just miseducated children, but a middle-aged priest who should have known better). Rioters around the country, who are overwhelmingly young, middle-class Americans, have made abundantly clear their incandescent hatred for the United States. In the midst of all this, the California Department of Education has given us a vivid illustration of how we got here. It has developed an “Ethnic Studies” curriculum that would make Joseph Goebbels proud.

The Jewish News Syndicate (JNS) reported Thursday that “more than a dozen California school boards have adopted resolutions in support of the state’s proposed ethnic-studies model curriculum, despite it having come under fire for containing anti-Semitic and anti-Israel content, and not addressing issues of anti-Semitism or including Jewish Americans.”

It’s all happening under the cover of darkness, deception, and coronavirus distraction, thanks to a group called “Save CA Ethnic Studies.” A letter to the California Department of Education (CDE) protesting the curriculum states: “School board members asked to vote on the resolution are not shown the original draft curriculum, and not informed about the enormous outpouring of criticism it engendered or that a CDE process is well underway for the curriculum’s redesign.”

The letter adds that school board members are “led to believe that in voting for the resolution they are showing support for AB-2016 and affirming the importance of ethnic studies classes in general, rather than endorsing the highly controversial draft curriculum that was condemned by dozens of state leaders and tens of thousands of Californians.”

The curriculum could have been devised in the editorial offices of Der Stürmer. According to JNS, “the proposed curriculum section on ‘Arab American Studies Course Outline’ contains a number of passages concerning the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, such as ‘Direct Action Front for Palestine and Black Lives Matter,’ ‘Call to Boycott, Divest and Sanction Israel’ and ‘Comparative Border Studies: Palestine and Mexico.’”

As if that weren’t enough, the curriculum “also includes studying national figures such as Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), the late Columbia University professor Edward Said, Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour, the late radio personality Casey Kasem, actress Alia Shawkat, and the late White House correspondent Helen Thomas—all of whom are associated with anti-Semitic and anti-Israel rhetoric, and in the case of the congresswomen, a push to enact legislation punishing Israel.”

Even in California, this far-Left propaganda has aroused controversy. Nevertheless, “despite the ongoing debate over the ethnic-studies curriculum, at least 13 school boards in the state have recently passed resolutions affirming their support for the ethnic-studies model curriculum draft: Hayward (April 22), Castro Valley (April 23), Albany (April 28), San Francisco (April 28), West Contra Costa (May 6), Alhambra (May 19), Oakland (May 27), South San Francisco (May 28), Jefferson Union (June 2), Jefferson Elementary (June 17), San Mateo Foster City (June 18), El Monte Union (June 24) and Santa Rosa City Schools (July 8).”

Nor is this proposed curriculum remotely singular. The commitment to “multiculturalism” that has now taken over K-12 education in America has been a godsend for Muslims in particular who are anxious to use schools and textbooks not just to preach hatred of Jews and Israel, but to proselytize for Islam.  Worried about appearing insufficiently “tolerant” and “inclusive,” too many public schools and individual teachers have succumbed to an organized campaign by U.S.-based Islamic organizations and their primary benefactor, Saudi Arabia, to present a view of Islam that whitewashes its violent history and intolerant doctrines.

Combine this with the deeply-rooted Leftist bias of curriculum material, and it is no surprise that American children graduate from all too many high schools, colleges and universities hating not just Israel, but their own country and heritage. It creates a population that is rife for insurrection. What we’re seeing now is the outcome of years, indeed decades, of this hard-Left, anti-American indoctrination. When the Left took over our educational system, what other outcome did anyone expect?

THE MAN WHO ENTERTAINED GERMANS WITH VILE ANTISEMITIC PROPAGANDA

The Man Who Entertained Germans With Vile Antisemitic Propaganda

July 26, 2018

Julius Streicher was the creator and editor of Der Sturmer, the notorious anti-Semitic newspaper of the Nazi era. He was a hateful bigot of mediocre intelligence, loved by his leader and despised by his fellow Nazis, not for his moral repugnance, but because they generally despised each other. Streicher’s hatred of the Jews was profound and malignant, his ideology rotten to the core, full of lies and contempt. Arrogant and cruel, Streicher showed no remorse for the hatred he spread or the devastation it wrought; rather, he reveled in it and pushed on, until all of Germany was infested with the foul stench of his hatred.

Born February 12, 1885 in the Bavarian town of Fleinhausen, Streicher’s childhood was poor, but happy. The youngest of nine children in a devout Catholic family, his mediocre intelligence ensured he matured into adulthood with a mind that was small and coarse. Though he knew no Jews growing up, his Catholicism provided fertile soil for his later hatred, courtesy of the erroneous foundation of Christian anti-Semitism: that the Jews killed their Christ.

When he left school, he became a teacher; and not a very good one by all accounts. He married and had two sons and looked set to live the life of a drudge, until an angry Bosnian took a potshot at an Austrian nobleman and sparked the First World War. Streicher fought valiantly for his country, gaining both distinction and an Iron Cross, First Class, a significant German military award. During his service, he earned the rank of lieutenant and several citations for bad behavior.

After the war, Streicher returned to a Germany that was seething over its loss of the war and reeling under the weight of the reparations imposed by the victors, to say nothing of the collective trauma of losing almost an entire generation of young men. Unemployment was high, the economy in ruins, and political extremism, rampant. In 1919, Streicher became involved in the German Nationalist Protection and Defense Federation, which was formed in response to the failed German Communist revolution of 1918. The Federation was deeply anti-Semitic and blamed Jews for the loss of the war and the spread of Bolshevism.

In 1921, Streicher attended a meeting of the National Socialist German Workers (NAZI) Party; he was there to hear the Party’s leader, Adolph Hitler, speak. Hitler’s hate-filled rhetoric penetrated Streicher on a spiritual level – like Saul on the road to Damascus – compelling him to join the Nazi Party and become a devoted follower of Hitler. In 1923, his devotion was made manifest with the founding of Der Sturmer (lit: The Stormer or Attacker). The chief aim of Streicher’s weekly rag was to disseminate anti-Semitic propaganda, which demonized Jews and championed the Nazi cause: namely, the building of an Aryan super state, free of Jews and other undesirables.

In its infancy, Der Sturmer was not well received. Most sensible minded Germans, including top Nazi officials, viewed it as nothing more than the libelous ravings of a nutjob. Hitler loved it. The courts agreed with everyone else, heavily fining Streicher for his lies.

Each issue of Der Sturmer relied on contemporary iterations of age-old anti-Semitic tropes, The Blood Libel and world domination among them, mixed in with titillating, semi-pornographic drivel, and the frontpage by-line: The Jews are our misfortune.

Like all good conspiracy theorists, Streicher included a grain of truth in his articles, usually in the form of an actual person, to whom he ascribed all manner of ridiculous misdeeds; tales so ludicrous, only a reader with the mental acuity of a gnat would believe.

Unfortunately, hate begets stupidity; so, when Hitler seized power and hate-mongering became a national pastime, Der Sturmer readership rose from 10’s to 100,000’s per week, making Streicher a millionaire. The more patently ridiculous the stories, the more the Streicher’s readers gobbled them up. Hitler was in his element and read it cover to cover each week and insisted everyone else read it too. To aid this, special display cases (called Sturmerkasten) were erected in towns, so no one missed out.

Sturmerkasten, Worms, Germany

So delighted was Hitler with his vulgar lackey, he made Streicher the Gauleiter (regional leader) of the Bavarian region of Franconia. Streicher used his new-found power to wicked ends, organizing a boycott of Jewish shops in 1933, and the destruction of The Great Synagogue of Nuremberg in 1938, precipitating Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass), during which 91 Jewish lives were lost, 8000 Jewish properties destroyed, and 30,000 Jewish men arrested and sent to concentration camps.

Streicher also took it upon himself to indoctrinate German youth with anti-Semitic ideology. To this end, he published three children’s books written by Ernst Hiemer and illustrated by Philipp Rupprecht (pen name Fips), Der Sturmer’s cartoonist since 1925. The most famous of these books was Der Giftpilz (“The Poisonous Mushroom”) an odious manual, warning children of the dangers of Jews.

The Poisonous Mushroom. Published 1938.

In 1940, Streicher was dismissed from his post as Gauleiter when it came to light he’d helped himself to Jewish property during Kristallnacht. Not that Nazis were averse to theft, rather, all stolen property belonged in the coffers of the Reich. Streicher’s release from his Gauleiter duties meant he had more time to dedicate to his pathological Jew-baiting, which continued unhindered until the bitter end.

That end came in 1945, when Germany lost the war (again) and Streicher was captured by the Americans and put on trial in his hometown of Nuremberg. Having taken no part in the waging of war or the decision-making process responsible for the Holocaust, Streicher was tried as a major war criminal based solely on the things that he said (a cautionary tale for any who suppose the privilege of free speech is bulwark against consequence).

What he said was considered so odious, so incendiary, that he was convicted of crimes against humanity and sentenced to hang. His hanging went badly. Having declared his allegiance to his dead Reich, the floor beneath him gave way, but his neck did not break, so he jiggled and moaned until the life was slowly choked out of him, receiving one last kindness from humanity when his executioner pulled on his legs.

“PA-affiliated TV channels have been running a video including a song with an explicit call for ‘jihad’ — a holy war — against Israel until ‘it is too late.'” — i24News, July 6, 2020

No problem! If the House Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs gets its way, money for that jihad is coming just in time, straight from the Great Satan.

“US House Subcommittee Passes $250 Million in Funding for Palestinian Authority Arabs,” JNS News Service, July 10, 2020:

A U.S. House subcommittee included $250 million in funding for Israeli-Palestinian Authority dialogue and Palestinian Authority business development in a $66 billion spending bill passed earlier this week, despite the Trump administration defunding both areas.

The House Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs passed the bill on Monday. It includes $50 million annually over five years for dialogue programs and investment in the Palestinian Authority’s private sector: $110 million for the former and $140 million for the latter.

Additionally, bill seeks “to restore humanitarian and development assistance to Palestinian Authoirty Arabs to continue the viability of a two-state solution by providing resources to organizations working in the West Bank and Gaza,” said House Appropriations Committee chairwoman Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) in a statement introducing the bill.

It also includes $225 million for Palestinian Authority relief and development, despite the Trump administration slashing funding in that category to virtually zero.

Israel-related lobbying groups AIPAC and J Street have applauded the move….

The Leftist/jihadist alliance, long dismissed as “right-wing” fabrication, grows more open, assertive, and aggressive by the day.

“At Brooklyn ‘No To Annexation’ Rally, Speakers Call To Abolish Police, Israel, And U.S. Government, Crowd Chants: ‘Death To America!’, ‘Millions Of Martyrs Are Marching To Jerusalem!’; Activist: ‘F*ck The NYPD!’ When A Precinct Or A Cop Car Burns, I Feel Closer To Palestine,” MEMRI, July 1, 2020:

Within Our Lifetime, a NY-based pro-Palestinian organization, organized a “Day of Rage” rally against Israeli plans to annex parts of the West Bank. The event, which was called “No to Annexation,” was held in Brooklyn on July 1, 2020, and the video of the event was uploaded to the organizers’ Facebook page. During the rally, an activist named Jamie from the pro-North Korea Nodutdol organization told the protestors that Palestine will be liberated, that Korea will be unified, and that the U.S. and its puppet governments will be “no more.” Another speaker, Amin Hosain of Decolonize This Place, an anti-gentrification movement, said that the police are the enemy and an impediment to the liberation of Palestine, and he said that when NYPD cop cars burn, a “revolutionary country” is being awakened.

Dequi Kioni Sadiki, wife of former Black Panther Seko Odinga, said that the European Jews who force Palestinians into refugee camps, concentration camps, and killing fields are related to the Europeans who forced Africans into slavery and prison death camps. She added that Palestine must be free like the stolen land of North America, which she referred to as “Turtle Island.” A representative of the Puerto Rican New York Borica Resistance movement said that the police, Israel, and the U.S. government must be abolished. Nerdeen Kiswani from Within Our Lifetime said that Palestinians do not only want to return to Gaza and the West Bank, but that they want all of Palestine. Wrapped in a red flag, a man named Rob from the Party for Socialism and Liberation led the crowd in chant in Arabic: “Death to Israel! Death to America!” In addition, the crowd chanted: “Millions of martyrs are marching to Jerusalem!… The gates of Al-Aqsa are made of iron – its gates will only be opened by a martyr… From Gaza to Minnesota, globalize the Intifada!… Black lives matter!… Not just annexation, not just occupation, fight for liberation – bring the whole thing down!” For more about Nerdeen Kiswani and Within Our Lifetime, see MEMRI TV clips No. 6100, No. 6311, and No. 7628.

Jamie, Nondutol Pro-North Korea Activist: “The DPRK also refuses to recognize Israel and calls it an imperialist satellite of the United States.

[…]

“I believe that within our lifetime, Palestine will be yours again and Korea will be one again! The United States of America and all of its puppet governments will be no more!”

[…]

Amin Hosain, Decolonize This Place: “The police that are around us are not our friends. You should not speak to them. They are our enemy. They are an impediment to the liberation of Palestine.

[…]

“When I saw that precinct burn, I thought I was closer to Palestine. When I see an NYPD cop car burn – I say we are waking up a revolutionary country.

[…]

“They know that we will f*cking free Palestine!”

[…]

Dequi Kioni Sadiki, wife of former Black Panther Seko Odinga: “The European Jews, who occupy, slaughter, and continue to force millions of Palestinians on to their killing fields, called refugee and concentration camps, are the relatives of the Europeans, the Spanish, the British, the Portuguese, the Irish, the Dutch, who kidnapped, slaughtered, and forced millions of Africans and indigenous on to slave ships, plantations, reservations, prison death camps, on this Turtle Island [North America].

[…]

“I know that from the River to the sea, Palestine must be free, because from every river to every sea, on this stolen land, this Turtle Island must also be free.”

[…]

Activist at New York Borica Resistance: “You can’t defund the police, you have got to abolish the police! You have got to abolish the Zionistic state of Israel! You have got to abolish the United States Government!”

[…]

Nerdeen Kiswani, Within Our Lifetime: “We don’t want a fake Palestinian state that they give us while Israel still exists. The land that Israel exists on is still stolen. The 1948 lands are still stolen. Jaffa, Haifa, and Tel Aviv – originally named Tel Rabi’a – was stolen. We don’t want to just go back to our homes in Gaza and the West Bank, we want all of it!”

[…]

Rob, Party for Socialism and Liberation: “Death to Israel!”

Crowd: “Death to Israel!”

Rob: “Death to America!”

Crowd: “Death to America!”

[…]

Leader and crowd: “With our souls and with our blood, we will redeem you, oh Palestine! From the water [of the River] to the water [of the Sea] – Palestine belongs to the Arabs!

[…]

“The gates of Al-Aqsa are made of iron – they only be opened by a martyr!

[…]

“A million martyrs are marching to Jerusalem!

[…]

“Resistance is justified, from New York to Palestine! From Gaza to Minnesota, globalize the Intifada!

[…]

“Black lives matter! Black lives matter!

[…]

“Intifada, Intifada! We will start an Intifada!

[…]

“No Palestinian liberation without black liberation!

[…]

“Not just annexation, not just occupation, fight for liberation – bring the whole thing down!”

[…]

Leader: “F*ck your two states!”

Crowd: “F*ck your two states!”

[…]

Speaker: “They come together and they share strategies on how to oppress us, all the time – that is why the NYPD has an office in Jerusalem. What the hell is that?”

Man: “F*ck NYPD!”

Speaker: “And Tel Aviv too!”

 

BOSTON: “DAY OF RAGE” PROTESTERS CALL FOR VIOLENT DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL

“‘Day of Rage’ Protesters in Boston Chant Anti-Israel, Pro-Hamas Slogans, Call for Intifada,” by Jackson Richman, JNS, July 3, 2020:

Tensions brewed at “Day of Rage” rallies and vehicle caravans nationwide on July 1, protesting Israel’s plans to apply sovereignty to parts of Judea and Samaria, more commonly known as the West Bank. The name refers to times when Palestinians riot and hurl rocks against Israeli soldiers and civilians, most recently near the border with the Gaza Strip.

Approximately 300 people associated with BDS Boston—a coalition of far-left anti-Israel organizations—chanted Hamas slogans on Wednesday night in front of the offices of the Anti-Defamation League and the Jewish Community Relations Council in the Massachusetts capital.

The BDS organizers said that they were protesting police brutality in the aftermath of the killing of African-American George Floyd, 46, on May 25 in the custody of Minneapolis police.

“The protesters hijacked legitimate outrage over the death of George Floyd to justify an ugly display of hostility towards Israel and Jewish organizations on the streets of Boston,” said Dexter Van Zile, an analyst at the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis, or CAMERA, which is based in Boston. “This wasn’t about changing American police policies, but about coarsening and brutalizing the discourse around Israel and Jews through the exploitation of black suffering.”

CAMERA staff filmed the rally. A speaker for BDS Boston is on video leading the large crowd in the Hamas chant “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” which is a call for the replacement of Israel with a majority-Arab Muslim country.

At other times, the crowd can be heard loudly chanting “Intifada, Intifada,” the name of violent Palestinian uprisings. Hamas is a U.S.-designated terrorist group.

“Kaffiyeh-wearing college students and mostly middle-class white activists with Palestinian flags were shouting for the violent elimination of the world’s only Jewish state,” said Van Zile. “Think about that: They’re chanting eliminationist rhetoric outside the offices of mainstream American Jewish organizations—a fact that shows that this wasn’t simply about Israel, but about Jews as Jews.”…

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER: NOT JUST COMMUNIST, BUT VICIOUSLY ANTI-SEMITIC TOO

No matter the color of their skin, Jews are going to be labeled “white.”

By the time violent rioters tore through the heavily Jewish neighborhood of Fairfax, Los Angeles on the night of Saturday May 30, 2020, it was too late. The vicious antisemitic, anti-Israel language of the M4BL and Black Lives Matter’s demands that included accusations against Israel of “apartheid” and “genocide” had been brushed aside. Black Lives Matter (BLM) delegations had traveled to the Middle East to endorse Palestinian terrorists in Gaza, Judea, and Samaria and pose for photo ops with the Palestinian flag. Statements from delegation leaders spoke of “occupation, ethnic cleansing and brutality” that Israel supposedly has perpetrated against the region’s Arab-Muslim population.

Even when city after city across America went up in flames after the May 25, 2020 killing of African-American George Floyd in Minneapolis by a white police officer, with BLM ‘protesters’ assaulting private businesses, their owners, and law enforcement officers alike, smashing store fronts, setting fires, and destroying property, some among America’s Jewish leadership could hardly get their statements of support out fast enough. Jewish American organizations, the Reform Movement, rabbinical leadership figures, progressive and Zionist activists, even the Hasidic Community of Crown Heights, Brooklyn in New York City all practically fell over one another in their haste to endorse the BLM movement.

The Jewish Federation of Santa Barbara was no different. On June 13, 2020, the group – including, among others, the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara, ADL Santa Barbara Tri-Counties, Santa Barbara Congregation of B’nai B’rith and Santa Barbara Hillel – issued a statement to condemn “racism” and “institutional biases.” The Focus Project, whose online website is remarkably empty, disseminated a set of talking points on June 16, 2020 that appear to date from September 2019. An increasingly popular trope is included among them that distorts the ancient Jewish term ‘Tikkun Olam’ in a way to make it seem like some kind of modern-day social justice program. In fact, ‘Tikkun Olam’ is a Kabbalist term that made its way into Judaism by way of the Aleinu prayer that is specific to Rosh Hashanah. ‘Tikkun Olam’ is not from the Torah (md’oraita) in origin at all – and therefore not one of the 613 obligatory commandments (mitzvot) nor anywhere to be found in the normative rabbinical literature concerning the praxises of Jewish Law (Halacha). Rather, as a kind of companion bit of moral guidance, ‘Tikkun Olam’ urges Jews to repair one’s individual relationship to the Almighty by way of observance of the actual ‘mitzvot’, or obligatory commandments that lead to perfecting personal behavior.

Now, just as ‘perfecting of one’s personal behavior before the Almighty’ has nothing to do with the social justice narrative per se, neither does it have anything to do with supporting a communist/Marxist, pro-Maoist organization, one of whose BLM co-founders’ declaration of the group’s Marxist ideology was featured on Twitter just days ago. Yes, the BLM movement was founded by three African-American women with longtime Marxist backgrounds: Alicia Garza, Opal I. Tometi, and Patrisse M. Cullors. Its original Platform (issued in August 2016, but scrubbed up a bit in its more recent iteration) called for collective ownership of all resources, the breaking up of banks, redistribution of wealth by way of confiscatory taxes on ‘high earners,’ free health care, and free education. Truly, Karl Marx would have blushed.

But back to the question of how BLM rioters came to be rampaging through Jewish neighborhoods of Los Angeles, CA, reportedly shouting “F___Jews”, and spray painting “F___Israel” and “Free Palestine” on the walls of the Congregation Beth Israel and at least four other synagogues. How did Jews come to be collectivized into the enemy “white privilege proletariat” class by these BLM Marxists?

That original BLM Platform also explicitly supports the BDS (Boycott, Divest, and Sanction) movement. Another indicator comes from Cullors (who organized the 30 May pogrom in LA): she reportedly told a New York Times reporter, “Let’s go into the heart of what is symbolically white in Los Angeles, which is Beverly Hills…These people need to hear our pain and our grief. We wanted to bring this to communities who often aren’t dealing with police violence.” No matter the color of their skin, therefore, Jews are going to be labeled “white”—as a pejorative from which it is always going to be impossible to escape. It goes back farther than that, however. By 2015, BLM representatives traveled to the Middle East to make common cause with Palestinians in Gaza, Judea and Samaria. Fast forward to late May 2020, shortly after the death of George Floyd, and the Democratic Socialists of America’s BDS national working group blatantly tried to link that killing to Israel, by claiming that U.S. police forces learned riot control techniques from Israeli police. Then, on June 1, Al-Awda, the Palestinian Right of Return Coalition, published a hideous cartoon at its website showing an Israeli soldier with his knee on the neck of a keffiyeh’ed Palestinian, arm-in-arm with an American police officer with his knee on the neck of a black man. The article it accompanied was entitled “Al-Awda PRRC statement of solidarity for Black lives and Black struggle.”

The BLM’s Marxist agenda is on full display across America today. Exploitation of the insurrectionist riots in which it plays a leading role to demonize Jews and Israel is, too.
