Israeli innovation in the face of COVID-19 conspiracy theories and antisemitism

One story that grabbed a little international attention this past week was about a study on conspiracy theories out of Oxford University. While NPR reported how three in five believe their government is misleading them and one in five think the virus is a hoax, Newsweek and Daily Express (and the Jewish press) dug in […]

Jewish scholars call for sacking of German antisemitism official for shameful attack on Mbembe

Thirty-seven Jewish scholars have called for the replacement of Felix Klein, the German government coordinator for the fight against antisemitism.

German censorship campaign targets scholar over BDS and applies ‘antisemitism’ charge

Germany is now notorious for weaponizing the charge of antisemitism in order to silence Palestine solidarity, labelling BDS – the peaceful Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israeli violations, as inherently anti-Semitic. In May last year, the German Bundestag passed a resolution condemning BDS as “anti-Semitic”, flatly conflating “Israel” with “Jews”, thus associating BDS with […]

The Government of Israel Has A Very Serious Antisemitism Problem

Jerusalem, Palestine — As Zionist organizations around the world weaponize antisemitism and use it as a tool to bring down politicians and other public figures with whom they disagree, the state of Israel is engaged in what is perhaps the worst example of antisemitism in the world today.   A rebellion against the Almighty According to […]

Linking BDS to antisemitism is a hoax perpetrated by those seeking to stifle growing Palestinian solidarity

This past November, the Highland Park Borough Council in New Jersey voted down a contentious resolution condemning anti-Semitism. The reason? Israel supporters in the borough insisted the resolution specifically condemn the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel. The council was right to reject the resolution with this stipulation. The alleged connection between […]

Why I referred myself to the Labour Party’s Compliance Unit for antisemitism

For the past four years I, like many others, have watched with incredulity as I have witnessed the unfolding of the antisemitism ‘crisis’ within Labour, trying to make sense of it. I have witnessed good people, proven, seasoned, antiracist campaigners and others suspended or expelled for grounds that I cannot comprehend, this has included left-wing […]

Jewish Congress launches campaign against ‘antisemitism’ (aka support for Palestinian rights)

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin demonstrates the new Instagram campaign against “antisemitism.” The EJC and Israel consider opposition to Israeli human rights violations “antisemitic.” The European Jewish Congress has launched a worldwide social media campaign against “antisemitism” (which, in EJC eyes, includes opposition to Israeli human rights abuses) The man behind the campaign, EJC President Moshe […]

Reclaiming the Narrative: How to Combat Israel’s Misuse of “Antisemitism”

At a talk I delivered in Northern England in March 2018, I proposed that the best response to falsified accusations of antisemitism, which are often lobbed against pro-Palestinian communities and intellectuals everywhere, is to draw even closer to the Palestinian narrative. In fact, my proposal was not meant to be a sentimental response in any […]

Trump’s executive order on antisemitism is only meant to suppress Palestine solidarity on campus

Editor’s Note: The following is a statement from California Scholars for Academic Freedom. Mondoweiss occasionally publishes press releases and statements from organizations in an effort to draw attention to overlooked issues. The Trump administration has overseen a rise in white nationalism and overt antisemitism in the United States. At the same time, the administration’s claims […]

Joe Biden’s Plan to Fight Antisemitism: Gun Control, Hate Crime Prosecutions & New Domestic Terror Law

Joe Biden spoke last night in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month. […] Biden’s remarks were not anti-Semitic. They were very, very philo-Semitic. The thrust of his largely unscripted monologue is that Jews have contributed enormously to the United States. That’s obviously a standard spiel for praising any ethnic group, but Biden took care to […]

As a private citizen, Jersey City school board member Joan Terrell-Paige, left, wrote on FB that Hasidic Jews were harassing blacks to sell their homes: “Are we brave enough to stop the assault on the Black communities of America? My people deserve respect and to live in peace in this city.” This was after two Black […]

Campaign against Sanders on ‘antisemitism’ for his criticism of Israel begins in earnest

“Sanders may be ethnically Jewish, but his rhetoric, voting history and associations have not reflected the values of a friend of Jewish people…” What are the “values of a friend of Jewish people”? “Speaking of anti-Israel dogwhistling, Sanders himself, much like his comrades, has preached anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian and, at times, blatant anti-Semitic talking points…” Lets’s […]

UK to investigate ‘far-left websites’ for ‘antisemitism’

On Friday the thirteenth of December, the day after Boris Johnson’s Tory party devastated Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour in Britain’s bitterly-fought 2019 election, Lord John Mann, the government’s independent antisemitism adviser, tweeted the following: I can this morning announce that as government advisor on antisemitism that I will be instigating an investigation this January into the […]

Trump Executive Order on “Antisemitism” Combats Criticism of Israel

President Donald Trump shows the executive order he signed during the White House Hannukah Reception, Dec. 11, 2019. Ivanka Trump, Jerrold Kushner, and Alan Dershowitz applaud. A new executive order is the latest step in the campaign to embed a nontraditional, Israel-focused definition of anti-Semitism in public institutions, thereby preventing negative information about Israel from […]

Media obsesses over Corbyn’s alleged antisemitism while ignoring Johnson’s proud bigotry

I can hardly believe what I’m reading. Defenders of liberal values, human rights, and inter-cultural coexistence are seriously wavering when faced in upcoming UK elections with the choice between a government led by Jeremy Corbyn, who is far from perfect but has repeatedly declared his opposition to ethnic and racial discrimination of all forms, and […]

Smoke without fire: the myth of a ‘Labour antisemitism crisis’

Editor’s note: Jamie Stern-Weiner’s ebook “Antisemitism and the Labour Party” is available for free download here on the Verso’s website.  It has been prominently and persistently asserted that there is a “crisis” of antisemitism in the Labour Party.
