Understanding Zionism.

Maligned, misunderstood, and derided, provocative, emotive and polarizing.  Often condemned, just the mention of the word Zionism is enough to raise the blood pressure of many. This often results in both pro and anti-Israel activists engaging in a battle of words. Frighteningly, this battlefield has expanded way beyond the Social …

The insane lunacy of the anti Zionist Left.

In their zeal to avoid accepting any kind of Zionism ever, anywhere, any time or any place, the anti-Zionists (yeah, lets call them antisemites for short) are turning themselves inside out and devouring their own in their desperate attempt to not only deny any legitimacy to Zionism, but to avoid …

Julia Salazar and the Jews.

New York State Senate candidate Julia Salazar has the pro-Jewish / pro-Israel world vaguely annoyed… while we are having a sandwich for lunch. Others in recent weeks have occasionally noted her existence with a raised eyebrow over their Wheat Chex. There have been a few notes concerning this person including, for example, …

Anti-Zionism is the new Antisemitism.

This is what branding looks like: You have a product to sell. You must convince the market to buy. The problem is that the product is old. It’s been seen before and has been rejected by many as faulty. The average person will not buy the product, as is. What …

The Protocolisation of anti-Zionism.

The czarist secret police created one of the greatest forgeries in history when they compiled The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion first published in 1903.  A century later the conspiracy theory at the heart of The Protocols has been transformed and reinvigorated into a bizarre fabrication about Zionism. …

Terms Misused By Anti-Israel Activists.

In the seemingly intractable conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, words are just as powerful weapons as rockets or knives. Words can kill, but they are also a casualty of the conflict. You may remember Newspeak, the fictional language in George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, which was an altered …

Antisemitism 101 — A Case Study

fighting antisemitism

Yesterday a Shalom.Kiwi reader, Natalie Owen, posted a series of hate-filled antisemitic rants in response to one of Shalom.Kiwi’s articles. Normally these kinds of abusive rants would be removed, but on this occasion we thought they served a useful purpose in demonstrating what antisemitism looks like. This is because Natalie helpfully …

Facebook. A pipeline for funding Hamas terrorism?

Arabs in Gaza are swarming social media platforms and sending private messages to pro-Palestinian activists looking for donations. Is it just one massive scam?  Or are Hamas utilising social media platforms, not just to spread propaganda, but as a pipeline to raise funds for their terrorist activities? Hamas are one …

Leftist Jews — Part I: Jewish Uncle Toms.

Credit for inspiration for this two-part piece goes to both Diane Weber Bederman and to Sarah Tuttle-Singer.  Diane wrote that J Street Jews (and I suppose others like them) can most accurately be understood as Jewish Uncle Toms.  Sarah wrote about privilege.  In Part I, I will expand upon Weber …

The Antisemitism of BDS.

The Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) campaign is inherently antisemitic. BDS campaigners deny this. They indignantly claim that they have nothing against Jews or Judaism, and are “only” opposed to Zionism and the State of Israel. They are either being disingenuous or it is evidence of their utter lack of comprehension …
