Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters performed the first of three shows at the Bell Centre Monday night, a new film that accuses him of promoting Anti-Semitism premiered in Montreal.
Britain continues to expose its citizens to danger and jihad attacks. The UK is currently facing the most severe terror threat ever.
If Britain is hoping to enter these Islamic State jihadists into deradicalization programs, they don’t work. Professor Boaz Ganor, from the International Policy Institute for Counter Terrorism once stated that deradicalization is “practically impossible”; the London Tube jihad bomber had attended a deradicalization program; and France’s only jihadi deradicalization center was closed because it was based on voluntary participation as it should be, and it was empty.
As a Councillor involved in planning, a number of people in our community have asked me what action they should take to oppose the application for an Islamic Centre on the Hippodrome site, Golders Green.
Since Golders Green is not the area of Barnet I represent, I am at liberty to respond more freely than would otherwise be the case.
My advice has been as follows. You cannot object purely because you do not like the idea of an Islamic Centre or mosque, and I hope that is not how you feel.
A Labour MP who was forced to resign from Parliament’s Women and Equalities Select Committee over misogynistic and homophobic comments appears to have only ever tabled three questions since he was elected to the Commons in June – and all were on Israel.
Jared O’Mara – who was elected as MP for Sheffield Hallam at the general election after defeating former Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg - has submitted three questions, on the UK’s arms trade to Israel, the government’s policy on the Palestinians’ right of return, and a further question about the Balfour Centenary commemorations.
Police in southern Virginia have arrested two brothers after video emerged of them barking anti-Semitic remarks at a man outside their father’s taco shop.
Joseph Killian, 33, and Henry Killian II, 35, were arrested and charged in connection with an incident in front of Hey Joe’s restaurant in Damascus, Virginia, a town of hardly 800 people roughly 30 miles northeast of Bristol, Tennessee, The Bristol Herald Courier reported Wednesday.
I was recently invited to present the liberal case for Israel at UC Berkeley. In my remarks, I advocated the establishment of a Palestinian state and a negotiated end of the conflict. I encouraged hostile questions from protesters and answered all of them. The audience responded positively to the dialogue.
Then immediately after my address, a poster was plastered outside the UC Berkeley School of Law with a swastika drawn on my face. The dean of UC Berkeley School of Law, Erwin Chemerinsky, sent a letter condemning the swastika.

PRO ISRAEL WATCHDOG LEADER: “PEARSON PUBLISHING IS A SERIAL ANTI-SEMITIC OFFENDER”
Latest Exposure Of Publishing Giant Causes Media Backlash
(New York) –October 26, 2017 – Pearson Publishing, with a reported share in excess of $8.2 billion in global revenues and control of more than 60% of US textbook sales in their march to recast global education is once again in hot water for a recurring theme: anti-Semitism.
As reported in today’s feature by Deborah Danan on Breitbart.com Pearson’s instructional book on nursing, Nursing: A Concept-Based Approach to Learning, is under fire for a section that notes “Jews believe that pain must be shared and validated by others.”
Laurie Cardoza-Moore, founder and President of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, an organization that forges Christian-Jewish alliances against anti-Semitism, is no stranger to the David and Goliath battle with Pearson. She today slammed the nursing textbook comment in the Breitbart feature as, “just another in a long line of anti-Semitic content published by Pearson.”
“This is outrageously racist and just another example of the anti-Semitic views and content produced by the authors and editors at Pearson. They are serial offenders,” she noted.
In 2012, Cardoza-Moore’s organization, PJTN, exposed another anti-Semitic scenario in Pearson’s textbook, Human Geography, distributed nationally to schools including those in Williamson Country, Tennessee where PJTN is based. Noted Cardoza-Moore: “The book legitimized Palestinians blowing themselves up in a Jerusalem restaurant because they were waging war against Israeli government policies and army actions. This is what children across the nation were being taught. We went into immediate action against Pearson.”
PJTN’s campaign against Pearson went national attracting media coverage that forced the publishing giant to apologize with the promise that the offending materials would be removed from all future print and online versions. “After follow-up scrutiny, we found that the quotes were not removed but simply moved elsewhere in the textbook. With another media assault, we managed to get the anti-Semitic quote removed completely,” noted Cardoza-Moore.
Interviewed by Breitbart on Pearson’s latest offense, she was not surprised. “It’s time for school districts, colleges, universities and nursing schools across the US to remove all Pearson published products. Their textbooks have proven to be historically altered and inaccurate, culturally biased, and not reflective of American values. This is only the latest example of an attempt by Pearson to fuel anti-Semitism through their textbooks and curriculum. We will continue with every effort to expose them,” Cardoza-Moore concluded.

TEL AVIV – An American publishing house has issued an apology for claiming in a nursing textbook that Jewish patients are often “vocal and demanding of assistance.”
A copy of the page, taken from Pearson’s book entitled Nursing: A Concept-Based Approach to Learning, went viral on social media for its descriptions of how minorities including Jews, Asians, blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans and “Arabs/Muslims” respond to pain.
Blacks, the book asserts, “often report higher pain intensity” and believe “suffering and pain are inevitable” and is “proportional to faith.” Hispanics may “believe that pain is a form of punishment,” it continues. Asian patients who complain openly about pain are “thought to have low social skills,” while Filipinos “view it as the will of God.”
The section also noted that Jews “believe that pain must be shared and validated by others.”
The Pearson education publishing company has apologized for a section of one of its nursing textbooks that claims Jews are often “[v]ocal and demanding of assistance” during medical treatment.
The page from “Nursing: A Concept-Based Approach to Learning” drew widespread ire on social media for its descriptions of how Jews, Asians, blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans and “Arabs/Muslims” respond to pain.
