    By jwadmin on November 14, 2019
    By ISRAEL KASNETT (JNS) – The Israeli missile that blasted through senior Islamic Jihad terrorist Baha Abu Al-Ata’s Gaza bedroom window at 4 a.m. on Tuesday morning, Nov. 12, may have killed the man and his wife, but it also sent a broader message to Hamas and Iran. While officials insisted this was a “one-off” operation and Israel does not […]

  • DC Report: Differences feared; anger and hate seem to be on the upswing

    By jwadmin on November 14, 2019
    DC Report By Douglas Bloomfield “Go back where you came from.” “You’re invaders and don’t belong here.” Sound familiar?  I remember people shouting that at the Jewish refugees who came to my hometown of Cleveland after the war. They were called “the DP’s,” displaced persons, and they dressed differently, spoke differently and looked different. We are hearing it more lately […]

    By jwadmin on November 14, 2019
    By BEN SALES NEW YORK CITY (JTA) – Days after a series of attacks against Jews across Brooklyn, the Anti-Defamation League announced that it would double funding for a school program combating hate. But city officials say more than education is needed to stop the rash of attacks, which have spiked across this city in 2019. That’s because the problem […]

  • Backlash to EU court ruling requiring labeling of products

    By jwadmin on November 14, 2019

  • Fear itself isn’t the only thing American Jews have to fear

    By jwadmin on November 8, 2019
    By JONATHAN TOBIN (JNS) – With impeccable timing, a new American Jewish Committee survey came out only days before the one-year anniversary of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting. The memorials for the single bloodiest day in American Jewish history echoed with renewed outrage about that crime and the subsequent shooting at Chabad of Poway in Southern California. So it was hardly surprising that […]

It remains a population that is mostly liberal, college educated and overwhelmingly white. And it’s not getting any younger. This is all according to a new American Jewish population estimate of the 48 contiguous U.S. states put out by […]

    By jwadmin on November 7, 2019
    By PHOEBE MALTZ BOVY TORONTO (JTA) – There’s a reason our moment demands a book called How To Fight Anti-Semitism, and it’s not just anti-Semitism’s violent global resurgence. American Jews — at least the liberal, pro-Israel majority — are at risk of becoming, as New York Times columnist Bari Weiss puts it, “politically homeless.” Right-wing anti-Semitism is, Weiss grants, the […]

  • DC Report: Elections: Whose rights are undermined?

    By jwadmin on November 7, 2019
    DC Report By Douglas Bloomfield The real problem with elections in this country is not that so many ineligible people are voting but that so many eligible citizens can’t.  Voter fraud is virtually nonexistent in this country, according to the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, a nonpartisan authority on voting rights and practices, and multiple media […]
