Choosing ISRAEL21c stories to promote through social media is Rosenberg’s job as one of about 30 18- to 25-year-old Digital Ambassadors spread across 24 American college campuses in the 2017-2018 academic year. He’s the youngest of the group, having applied for the position while still in high school.
Activists who helped lead a national anti-Israel conference for students last year have publicly denigrated Jews, advocated violence against Zionists, and praised Palestinian terrorist groups, a new report has found.
Multiple organizers, speakers, and workshop leaders at the 2017 National Students for Justice in Palestine (NSJP) conference — which took place at the University of Houston (UH) this past October — have posted content featuring “anti-Semitism, incitement, threats of violence, support for terror and hatred of Israel across social media,” according to the anonymous watchdog group Canary Mission.
Among them was Samer Alhato, a Saint Xavier University anthropology student at the time of the conference, who announced on Facebook that he was picked to lead a “gender and sexuality” workshop, screenshots captured by Canary Mission show.
Alhato has repeatedly backed the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, tweeting on July 2014, “I support Hamas and I send then [sic] money every month.”
A millionaire socialite is accused of making anti-Semitic remarks to a Jewish attorney at a Manhattan restaurant and then hitting him over the head with a purse made of glass.
Jacqueline Kent Cooke, daughter of the late billionaire Jack Kent Cooke, was arrested by New York police on Wednesday and charged with second-degree assault in the New Year’s Eve incident, People magazine reported.
Cooke reportedly at first denied the incident when confronted by police but later turned herself in.
According to the New York Daily News, Matthew Haberkorn, 52, of the San Francisco area, his mother, wife and four daughters were collecting their outdoor gear from a coat check after eating at a high-end Manhattan restaurant when Cooke allegedly told him, “Hurry up, Jew. I got places to be.”
Protests against Israel, sparked by President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as its capital, are once again forcing Germany to weigh the value of free speech against the burden of its Nazi past.
Pro-Palestinian demonstrators have been burning Israeli flags in the center of Berlin while chanting anti-Semitic slogans threatening violence against Israelis. One protest Friday took place only 100 yards from the city’s somber Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, a reminder of Germany’s responsibility for the worst mass murder in history.
A few thousand protesters have taken part so far. Except for several arrests, German authorities have generally refrained from interfering, even as top officials said they were “ashamed” by “the evil face” of anti-Semitism on display.
When Labour Against Antisemitism (LAAS) was founded earlier this year it did so with the conviction that antisemitism is a clear and present threat to the Labour Party’s moral, ethical and political integrity. Our aim of exposing antisemitism within the party has led to more than 6,000 examples of ‘antisemitic sewage’ being submitted to the party compliance unit, some so horrific activists have been reduced to tears.
The compliance unit, under-resourced as the party membership has swollen to 600,000 members, has struggled to cope under the strain. Although it has recruited recently, more content is being sent across every month and the crisis shows no sign of abating. The National Constitutional Committee (NCC), which decides on disciplinary rulings, has been unable to convene panels to hear cases, and the backlog has led to questions overs its capacity to function effectively.
The Jewish community in Austria and the State of Israel are not ready to give the Freedom Party (FPÖ) a kosher certification. The reason for the boycott of the ministers of the FPÖ is not the Nazi past of the German nationalist camp. The party has never distanced itself from it. What the FPÖ is today and what the party really stands for - that is the problem. This cannot be camouflaged by Freedom Party leaders' symbolic visits to Israel.
Without a doubt, the most immediate risks for Jews in Europe emanate from radical Muslim anti-Semitism. Most recently, it erupted after U.S. president Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. There was a protest here in Vienna, where people called to "slaughter the Jews" and "Death to Israel", in Arabic and Persian.
A man in Berlin is under investigation for incitement, slander and resisting police officers after uttering anti-Semitic slurs against an Israeli restaurant owner in a scene caught on video that drew widespread criticism.
The first six people to face trial in Inauguration Day protests that turned destructive in the nation’s capital were acquitted of all charges, a victory not only for the defendants but also for advocates who argued the government overreached in its effort to prosecute more than 200 people arrested as they marched through the city.
Following a nearly four-week trial and two full days of deliberations, a D.C. Superior Court jury delivered not-guilty verdicts Thursday on multiple charges of rioting and destruction of property.
The defendants — including a nurse for cancer patients, a freelance photographer and a college student — joined throngs of protesters who took to the streets Jan. 20 to protest Donald Trump’s election. Prosecutors said the six were among a group that cut a violent swath through 16 blocks of the city, smashing businesses’ windows, tossing newspaper boxes into the street and damaging a limousine. Authorities tallied the damage at more than $100,000.
This gross display of hatred is absolutely outrageous and the hotel should fire the Manager immediately. What example does that set for the other members of the staff? Not only should people sign the petition, but they should also let the Hotel management know that they will not be staying at their hotel- ever! I would be very concerned about my safety staying in a hotel who slaps the hand of a Nazi sympathizer!
Let the hotel owners and the world know this Anti-Semitic behavior is not acceptable. Please sign the petition and post the message below on Twitter and your other social media platforms:
Tell the owners of the Soto Hotel in Los Angeles they must fire their manager for wearing an Anti-Semitic t-shirt. I just signed the petition - please join me! #justiceforjeffanddan @PJTN http://ow.ly/WfCV30hj1F2
