The University of Michigan this week promised “serious consequences” for instructors whose “personal views” cause them to withhold letters of recommendation, responding to mounting concern that protest against the Israeli state is harming students on the Ann Arbor, Mich., campus.
The announcement follows two separate cases this fall in which a professor and a teaching assistant reneged on their commitments to provide references for undergraduates after learning that the students were applying to study abroad in Israel. The actions have turned the university into a site of contest over the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, known as BDS.
Amazon.com is selling T-shirts that say “Make Israel Palestine Again,” a not so subtle endorsement of ending the State of Israel. The shirts are listed as “In Stock. Ships from and sold by Amazon.com.” This stands in contrast with some merchandise Amazon sells that comes from third-party sources.
Pick up any newspaper and you might get the impression that Israel is being ruthless and aggressive when it comes to dealing militarily with the Palestinians. That is especially true for those living under the control of the terrorist group Hamas in Gaza.
“I’m gonna physically fight Zionists on campus next year if someone comes at me with their ‘Israel is democracy bullshit’ :)” Hazmeh wrote Friday. “And after I abolish your ass i’ll go ahead and work every day for the rest of my life to abolish your petty ass ethnosupremacist settler-colonial state.”
CNN reversed order of deaths in Hamas attack, ‘manipulating’ news item to make it appear that Israel struck first, says Foreign Ministry.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry chastised the Cable News Network (CNN) over the weekend, after the network released a news brief which appeared to reverse the order of events in the latest clashes between Israel and the Hamas terror organization.
On Friday, terrorists operating out of the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip opened fire on Israeli soldiers stationed on the border, killing 20-year-old Givati Brigade Staff Sergeant Aviv Levi.
TORONTO – B’nai Brith Canada has defeated an attempt by a former Green Party Justice Critic and anti-Israel activist to silence its human-rights agenda.
In a judgement released Thursday, Justice Helen A. Rady of the Ontario Superior Court dismissed a libel action by lawyer Dimitri Lascaris under Ontario’s “anti-SLAPP” provision. Introduced in 2015, the legislation “protects freedom of speech on matters of public interest” by combatting “Strategic Lawsuits against Public Participation” (SLAPP).
The litigation arose out of an article published by B’nai Brith in August of 2016, entitled “Green Party Justice Critic Advocates on Behalf of Terrorists.” The article detailed how Lascaris, then serving as Green Party Justice Critic, met with the father of Palestinian terrorist Bahaa Alayan (or Elian), and falsely claimed on social media that Alayan had been “killed extrajudicially by Israeli authorities.”
Once again, Hezbollah flags flew in London last weekend at the Iran-supporting “Al Quds” march in Britain’s capital city…writes Melanie Phillips/JNS.
Hezbollah, the proxy army of the Iranian regime, is responsible for numerous murderous attacks around the world against Jews, Americans and other Western interests.
No matter. The march—an annual London fixture, no less—featured calls for Israel to be wiped from the map, and was led by a man who previously made the deranged claim that “Zionists” were behind an appalling London apartment block fire last year in which more than 70 people died.
The U.N. General Assembly approved a Palestinian-backed resolution Wednesday blaming Israel for violence in Gaza and deploring its “excessive use of force,” after narrowly rejecting a U.S. demand to add a condemnation of attacks on Israel by Gaza’s Hamas rulers.
What happens when a journalist “exposes” a document ostensibly produced by a secretive organization which had supposedly engaged in clandestine means and then it emerges that the document was produced by another organization? And what happens when it turns out that the organization that really did produce the document did so entirely by scouring open sources and then published the document online for all to see? The journalist’s cloak-and-dagger scoop deflates into a total non-story.
The Palestinian Authority claimed on Tuesday Israel was “brutal and calculated” in killing “unarmed” protesters on the Gaza border last week, requesting Israel be brought up on charges in the International Criminal Court.
With the Great March of return having fizzled out after the bloodiest day in Israeli-Palestinian relations since 2014’s Operation Protective Edge, another high-casualty conflict or possibly even the breakout of war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza was avoided. Previous flash-points with potential for a serious outbreak of violence were the Temple Mount metal detector crisis of last summer, and the ongoing tense situation in Gaza exacerbated by Israel and the PA’s reduction of electricity to Gaza last summer.
From glorifying martyrdom to incessant programming on state-controlled TV promoting children as combatants, the Palestinian Authority is one of the great child abusers in history.
Now, their latest video, which has appeared numerous times on TV in the last weeks, encourages children to continue the conflict. Instead of promoting a path to peace and a way to embetter their lives, the PA has rolled out propaganda aimed at children to remain “refugees.”
How many Caterpillar D8 bulldozers, lined up side to side, would it take to push the Syrian invaders – I mean Palestinians – and their so called “civilization” into the sea?
On May 16, Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs
issued the following statement concerning the Gaza conflict:
We are deeply disturbed over the rising death toll in Gaza this past day. Israel has a right to defend its borders, but must never use lethal force against unarmed protesters. Hamas also bears much responsibility for the situation in Gaza by mixing armed combatants with peaceful demonstrators and encouraging Gazans to breach the border fence.
