  • Israel's fascist sideshow takes center stage

    For the first time in over 30 years, a proper Kahanist party could be entering the Knesset. But is the rise of a party that advocates for Jewish supremacy, theocracy, and 'total war' as unprecedented as the outcry has suggested? The last week has been an eventful one in the annals of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s dalliances with the racist ultra-right. Fresh from upsetting his authoritarian, antisemitic allies in Europe by failing to adequately maintain his recent efforts at Holocaust revisionism, Netanyahu has now paved the way for homegrown Israeli fascists to take their place — once again — in the Knesset. The prime…

  • American Jews, which side are you on?

By Shira Yudkin Tiffany Rows of police demarcated the sides outside the annual AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington D.C. Two human chains of protestors in matching t-shirts bound themselves together to the doorways to the Washington Convention Center. Beyond them were barricades and a sea of mostly young, largely unaffiliated Jews, cheering on the action in Hebrew. [tmwinpost] These were not your average AIPAC protesters. While the Jewish community has been puzzling over the…

  • French pro-Israel group threatens to 'scalp' thousands of BDS activists

    The 'Brigade Juive' claims to have sent the threatening email to 8,000 activists worldwide, lamenting that since French law doesn't do enough against boycott supporters it must take matters into its own hands.

  • More Zionist than the Jewish state itself

    The man who wants to take over the Zionist Organization of America is further to the right and more of a warmonger than the most right-wing government Israel has ever had.  The Zionist Organization of America was one of the first major Jewish-American umbrella organizations to support the nascent State of Israel. From Louis Brandeis to current president Morton Klein, the organization has seen ideological shifts - and with them varying levels of support. It’s safe to say that the organization’s heyday is long gone. Morton Klein has headed the organization for the last 20 years and this year, his…
