"To comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable"

When is it “Anti-Semitism”?

If this standard was demanded for a definition of Islamophobia, would YOU be okay with it?
Islamophobia is a certain perception of Muslims, which may be expressed as hatred toward Muslims. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of Islamophobia are directed toward Muslim or non-Muslim individuals and/or their property, toward Muslim community institutions and religious facilities.”

Substitute “Jews” instead of “Muslims” and that is what Jewish organizations are demanding that all countries adopt as their legal definition for Anti-Semitism, thus criminalizing the so-defined, “anti-Semitic” behavior. The IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) definition of Anti-Semitism that was concocted in Bucharest on May 27th 2016. Ever since then, Jewish organizations have been strongly agitating to have this “definition” adopted on an international scale.

Not that simple today. Continue reading

Fruits of Hatred: Three Jews Murdered in Kansas

On Sunday, the 14th of April 2014, the eve of Passover, a man went to two Jewish Centers and killed a total of three people. Frazier Glenn Cross a.k.a. Frazier Glenn Miller is a known White Supremacist and a former leader in the Ku Klux Klan; hatred…institutional hatred, clearly played the major role in his murders.Three lives snuffed out, just like that, with three blasts of a hate-filled man’s gun. the people who died, left behind friends and relatives, whose lives will forever have a void in them, they will be mourned by their communities and by those who lived close by and who now realize what happened in their greater neighborhood. Of course, Jews all over the country and probably all over the world, feel the twinge of fear, knowing there is so much hate being generated and cultivated against them simply for the fact that they are Jews; it is so incredibly difficult to fight such endemic hate!

How does this happen?
