Consider a new potential cast member for Saturday Night Light, Shane Gillis, who was found to have made off-color comments in the past. He was terminated this week before his …

Spelling and meaning of antisemitism and/or antisemitic.

fighting antisemitism

The incorrect spelling of both antisemitism and antisemitic is a pet hate of mine, as the correct spelling actually alters the meaning of the words. This is two previous items I’ve written on the subject joined. Unfortunately the spelling of the words have been Americanised!  I don’t recollect these incorrect …

I’ve been trying to say something that will make sense about how Jason Silver was tormented by a fellow Jew simply because he held a different view on Israel and antisemitism. Why is it important that I should say something, you might ask, and I’d tell you that his death …

Democrats Rediscover Antisemitism.

The poster on the left represents a bit of anti-Zionist propaganda that has been around for decades and is among the negative images of Jewish self-determination that today’s college kids grew up with.   Although the western progressive-left generally supports anti-Zionism, American Jews still cling to the Democratic Party despite …

Noor al Haqiqa.

Every once in awhile an honest antisemite drops by to say hello at Israel Thrives. The image to your left is the avatar of one Noor al Haqiqa. Somehow or other Noor came across a piece that I wrote a little over two years ago entitled, Ryan Bellerose and the Indigenous Question and, lo, …

Judenrat: Beinart.

UPDATE:    I made a mistake.  The term “Judenrat” is not appropriate.  I should have gone with “Kapo,” instead. ==== Peter Beinart is a Judenrat. This is to say, he acts as an agent and intermediary of the enemies of the Jewish people while claiming to be a friend to the …
