There is much to appreciate in Melanie Phillips’ first novel, The Legacy

Sep 21, 2021 by

by Irene Lancaster, Christian Today: Many would say that War and Peace, Tolstoy’s epic 1860s chronicle of the earlier Napoleonic invasion of Tzarist Russia, experienced through the lives and loves of a number of individuals, is his greatest novel – maybe even the greatest novel ever written. At exactly the same time, that very English genius, George Eliot (real name Mary Ann Evans), was writing what she herself considered to be her greatest novel, Romola, based on Florentine Renaissance...

The unstoppable engine of infamy

Sep 17, 2021 by

by Melanie Phillips: The UN is the pivot for the west’s loss of moral compass. Next week, the United Nations is set to reinforce infamy. In the wings of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York, it is to hold a 20th anniversary summit of its so-called World Conference against Racism that took place in Durban, South Africa, four days before the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. The New York event is outrageous. For Durban was a terrifying circus of psychotic anti-Jewish hatred whose sole...

BBC: Leading the World Against Israel

Aug 15, 2021 by

by Richard Kemp, Gatestone Institute: More than any other media organization, the BBC is responsible for inciting hatred against Israel — not just in Britain but globally.

In some respects, as an approach to understanding history, CRT has a certain credibility. Ibram X. Kendi’s retelling of American history in Stamped from the Beginning is lucid, well-crafted and internally consistent in its description of...

Waiting for social media companies to tackle anti-Semitism is utterly pointless

Aug 8, 2021 by

by Stephen Pollard, CapX: I am about to write one of the least surprising sentences that anyone who uses social media will ever read. A report published today by the Centre for Countering Digital Hate has found that the five biggest social media sites are a free-for-all for anti-Jewish hatred and that, even when posts are reported, the sites refuse to remove them. You’re telling me! I’ve just checked and as of this morning I have blocked 2561 users on Twitter, almost all of whom I blocked for...

The west’s tsunami of antisemitism

Aug 4, 2021 by

by Melanie Phillips: In this podcast with Allen Roth, president of Secure America Now, I discussed the “tsunami” of antisemitism in the west and the inadequacy of the responses to it. Forming an “axis of evil that spans continents,” an unholy alliance has developed between leftists and Islamists. Worse still, cultural and political leaders in both Britain and America have been paralysed into virtual silence by moral and cultural relativism, which prohibits any criticism of the developing...
