Radical Islamic terrorists are trying to kill as many innocent civilians as they can. This undeniable simplicity …Read More »
Guest Post: An end to #LabourAntisemitism? The EHRC publishes its report.
Before we begin, I just want to mention that Labour Antisemitism has been a key issue of this blog ever since Jeremy Corbyn was elected Leader of the Labour Party back in 2015. Therefore it is with great satisfaction that we can bring this sorry and sordid subject to a …Read More »
Bernie Sanders’ Antisemitic and Anti-Zionist Friends.
It is worrying when terrible people appreciate you and the things you say. It forces a moment to pause and reflect on your language and message, but, it is possible that the vile audience may be outliers who misinterpret you.

Jeremy Corbyn is unable to apologise for failing to tackle antisemitism.
In a BBC interview Andrew Neil was unable to get any kind of answer on why Jeremy Corbyn was unable to tackle antisemitism. I think the point missed here is that Jeremy Corbyn is antisemitic, so why would he want to stop it? He has been seen around the Middle …Read More »
Palestineism is Toxic Racism.
Racism is a form of hatred which believes that all members of a particular group are inferior and/or evil. In itself, it is ugly but not dangerous, a localized noxious belief system based on bigotry. Racism becomes toxic when it spreads and obtains power. Such is the state of Palestineism, …Read More »

Hezbollah, Iran’s Proxy, poses a threat that needs to be taken seriously.
The world’s attention is once again turned towards the fraught relationship between Iran and the U.S. and the growing threat of a military confrontation – a situation given much coverage in the media, both here in New Zealand and abroad. What has been less well-covered, particularly in the New Zealand …Read More »
The state of Britain today – good for the Jews?
For months now Britain has been roiling in its Brexit woes. Theresa May resigned (or was she pushed?) and the race is now on to choose a new Prime Minister. The internal voting amongst Tory MPs is now over and the choice is down to two men, one of whom …Read More »
Why the mainstream is to blame for the antisemitism crisis.
Antisemitism spread through the left like a tsunami through city streets. It may have entered via radical minority groups on the fringes, but as it hit the shore, there were no defences in place. Nothing to stop anti-Jewish sentiment moving from constituency to constituency. For decades, the mainstream has flirted …Read More »
New antisemitism disguised as criticism of Israel, preserving stereotypes of Jews.
Regardless of the make-up of the coalition that forms government in Israel after Tuesday’s election — most likely with Benjamin Netanyahu as Prime Minister – we must expect nothing less of our own politicians and commentators than a commitment to differentiate between legitimate debate around Israeli politics, and spinning a …Read More »
Israeli Elections – Silly Season.
It is election season in Israel with all the attendant empty promises, scandals, and political jockeying. Bayit Yehudi head and Education Minister Naftali Bennett took his deputy, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, and left the party, forming a new party simply called “The New Right”. I have not been able to …Read More »
The smear tactics of the Jeremy Corbyn cult. A case study.
We all know that the Jeremy Corbyn cult uses smear tactics. It can be well highlighted by this case study. It is a worthwhile exercise to show just how empty and crudely constructed these smears can be. My website was attacked on the evening of the 22nd December. It was …Read More »
Synagogue slayings not a shot in the culture wars.
The partisan advantage-taking began before the bodies had even been identified. To opponents of the US President, the massacre of 11 Jews during a baby naming ceremony at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, was the logical endpoint of President Trump’s refusal to expressly reject an endorsement from former Grand Wizard …Read More »

Corbyn: Walking like a Duck? Pt II.
Speaking for the Defence (MAYBE?) Criticism of Israel is not (necessarily) antisemitism. Just remember: Lies are not criticism. Relabelling Nazi or medieval antisemitism as criticism of Israel is still antisemitism. Sharing a platform with those who don’t bother to hide their antisemitism is antisemitism by proxy Jeremy Corbyn made his …Read More »
At the Munich Olympics of 1972, less than three decades after the Holocaust, Jews were murdered on German soil – because they were Jews. Because they were Israelis. The Olympics has historically been a place of peace where even warring nations could come together and compete in the sports arena, …Read More »
Baroness Tonge implies discussing persecution of Jews is antisemitic.
In a Facebook post yesterday, Baroness Jenny Tonge stated “…We would all like a safe haven to run to when the going gets tough, but we stay on and ask why it is getting tough. Why have the Jewish people been persecuted over and over again throughout history. Why? I …Read More »
Is Jeremy Corbyn an antisemite?
The Duck test implies that a person can identify an unknown subject by observing that subject’s habitual characteristics. If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is … But what if the duck is a crow† who has convinced himself …Read More »
