Yes Virginia, there is Antisemitism in Australia Categories: Antisemitism, Australasia     Author: Jeremy Jones

For the 12 month period ending September 30, 2012, 543 incidents of "racist violence" (using the definition adopted for more than 20 years by the Federal Government) against Jewish Australians were documented by Jewish organisations in Australia. These incidents included physical assaults, vandalism

On 6 December 1938, an extraordinary event took place in Melbourne. William Cooper, an Indigenous Australian in his late 70s, led a delegation to the German Consulate in Melbourne, to deliver a petition formulated after he heard and read reports of "Kristallnacht" and other anti-Jewish manifestatio

More Hamas incitement to genocide

More Hamas incitement to genocide Categories: Antisemitism, Israel, Updates     Author: Sharyn Mittelman

The Hamas Charter of 1988 calls for the destruction of Israel, and includes rampant antisemitism and genocidal incitement.

In the recent Gaza conflict, as in 2008-2009, the media was obsessed with "disproportionate" body counts - the fact that more Palestinians were dying than Israelis.

On 1 October, Jewish Agency for Israel employee Avi Mayer stumbled across an alarming tweet by the Free Gaza Movement ('FGM'), the principal organisers of the inf

"100 Jewish Donors" Categories: Antisemitism, Islamic Extremism, Middle East     Author: Zachary Novetsky

"100 Jewish donors." Google it, and 17,000 results follow; 1,490 just in Google's "News" tab. Strung together, those words sound altruistic. But place those words in the context of the attacks taking place against the United States' embassies, and the foundations are built for a grandiose conspiracy

Scribblings: The Livingstone Formulation Lives Categories: Anti-Zionism, Antisemitism     Author: Tzvi Fleischer

Imagine if someone said the "Global Jewish Conspiracy" had been conspiring to take over the world through their control of politicians and the media, and of course using their money and power over banking to dominate the global economy. Moreover, they added, the Global Jewish Conspiracy had been sch
