Chutzpah On Stilts

Rep. Tlaib Requests Taxpayers Fund Her Anti-Semitism

Former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz Shuns the D.C. "Women's March"

Even DWS draws the line at linking arms with Farrakhan apologists who claim to reject antisemitism but who ooze Zion-hate.

Wow, Zion-Loathers. That's, Er, Really Catchy

This year's annual anti-Israel campus hate-a-thon (a.k.a. Israeli Apartheid Week) has come up with an especially saucy Marxist slogan: "Stop Arming Colonialism."

Doesn't exactly fall trippingly off the tongue, does it?

As if Jews living in their ancient, ancestral homeland, alone of all peoples living in their ancient, ancestral homes, do not have the right of abode, having cruelly armed themselves and "colonized" the local Arabs (members of a people who, it must be emphasized, claim ownership of 22--yes, 22!--lands).

Song For Rashida

With apologies--and a hello!--to Elvis Costello:
Oh, it's so awful to be seein' you bein' sworn in, girl,
'Cuz with your potty mouth and lefty views 
You'll be a big success.
And now I'm hearin' from a friend of mine
You're into BDS.
It's all gonna get too "intersectional"
As they crow that Dems are justified.
But even as you're speakin' "truth to power"
You're advocating genocide. 

Oh, "Palestine,"
That ain't fake news...
Comedian Relabels Israel As ‘Palestine’ On Map In Rashida Tlaib’s Office by the Forward

A Question for the New Year

What's crazier--the belief that anyone who acts out jihadi-style must be in the grip of a mental illness, or the Western refusal to understand the precepts of jihad embedded in Islam's holy texts that give rise to (and that validate) the "nutty" behavior?

Update: Equally bonkers--those who challenge the jihad imperative, thereby failing to uphold Canada's "diversity-is-our-strength" bollocks, can be branded "anti-Muslim."

Update: Do you know which media outlet most definitely isn't "anti-Muslim" (but which does have a distinctly anti-Zionist vibe)? No surprise, it's the New York Times.

The Banality of Intersectionality

According to a new survey of EU Jews, the majority of Jew-hate in Europe is being perpetrated by those (Muslims, left wingers) who huddle under the "intersectionality" umbrella; only 13% of the perpetrators express right wing views.

(more specifically, the Jew-hate) engendered by "intersectionality"
and those who purvey it.

Today in Dumb Dhimmis...

ISIS supporter who attacked police with sword outside Buckingham Palace while yelling 'Allahu Akbar' is found NOT GUILTY of terror plot after telling court he didn't intend to harm anyone

Farrakhan Gets the Gravy

One would think that Louis Farrakhan's overt and unabashed Jew-hate would render his racket ineligible to receive (U.S.) federal funding.

In reality, one couldn't be wronger.

"Jewish Privilege"? Um, No Thanks

According to this week's CJN, "Jewish Privilege" isn't an issue that's "black and white."

In what follows--my letter to the editor--I respectfully beg to differ:
There are several reasons why I don't agonize over my so-called "Jewish privilege." First, it is difficult to feel "privileged" when, despite being such a small slice of the population, Jews remain the number one target of hate crimes in Canada. 

Second, I decline to participate in the "intersectionality" sweepstakes, a toxic ideology which upholds victimhood as the highest virtue and which acts as cover for some of the worst anti-Semitism around: one need look no further than Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan for an example of that. 

Finally, I have read David Nirenberg's book Anti-Judaism: The Western Tradition. It's a masterful account of how Western thought has been suffused with a type of Jew-hate that has little or nothing to do with actual Jews and/or Judaism, but which uses "the Jew" as a foil that enables the thinker to define ultimate good and bad. Whatever the thinker argues is, of course, "good," while its' opposite, whatever it is, is said to be "Jewish," and is therefore bad. Tragically, millions of real, live Jews have often suffered dire consequences because of this kind of thinking.

When placed in this context, a much bigger picture emerges, and the derision of Jews for their purported "white privilege" as well as its adjunct, the "intersectionality"-driven hatred of "Zionism," can be seen for what they really are.
Update: Here's an example of the "intersectionality"-driven hatred I was talking about:
They are also unified in the belief that Israel is the enemy of the righteous. Katbi Smith had worked hard for the passage of a BDS resolution, presented to members at the 2017 convention. When it passed, by almost  90% of the vote, she was ecstatic. She told Abraham Riesman, who was writing about the DSA for The Daily Beast, “It was electric. The room was on fire. It was amazing. We had a Palestinian flag that we waved as soon as it passed. We started chanting.”
And what they chanted was: “From the river to the sea. Palestine will be free.” In case there is any doubt, this is not a peaceful wish. It is a call for the elimination of Jews between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River.

This One's For You, Alice

I found a video designed to make the malicious Ms. Walker's head explode:
