Same old Mahathir Categories: Antisemitism, Asia, Updates     Author: Gareth Narunsky

One could have been forgiven for thinking, during a 60 Minutes interview with former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad in March, that the one-time strongman of Malaysian politics had mellowed out significantly.

The company Corbyn keeps

The company Corbyn keeps Categories: Anti-Zionism, Antisemitism, Israel, United Kingdom     Author: Douglas Davis

If it was true that you can judge a man by the company he keeps, Jeremy Corbyn would be an Israel-hating, antisemitic, Holocaust-denier. The newly elected leader of Britain's Labour Party would vehemently deny he is any of the above, but some of his best friends are one or more of these things.

When Muslim Antisemitism comes to Australia

When Muslim Antisemitism comes to Australia Categories: Antisemitism, Australasia     Author: Tanveer Ahmed

As a boy, I spent many a Friday prayer in mosques hearing clerics wax lyrical about Jewish conspiracies and their intent to dominate the world and rid it of Islam.

Zarif's public relations campaign is in full swing, as seen from his interview with Robin Wright of the New Yorker on April 25. The New Yorker interview highlights Zarif's excuses and cover-ups for Iranian terrorism and Holocaust Denial. He also suggests the nuclear deal is fraying, blaming the US

Biblio File: A Matter of Definition Categories: Antisemitism     Author: Robert Fine

The word "antisemitism" currently has a strange aura around it. There is a curious reluctance on the part of some people to use it even on occasions when it seems unequivocally appropriate - like, for example, the murder of Jewish children and a Jewish teacher in a Jewish school in Toulouse in 2012,
