Theological incitement within the World Council of Churches

Feb 19, 2021 by

by Melanie Phillips: Christian leaders remain silent as another church figure recycles its oldest hatred. The World Council of Churches has gone full theological incitement against the State of Israel. In a recent Zoom webinar with more than 300 Christian activists to promote a film about the pro-Palestinian activism of Michel Sabbah — the former Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem — Rev. Frank Chikane, the moderator of the WCC’s Commission of the Churches on International Affairs, went much further...

Why is a Holocaust museum putting on a George Floyd exhibition?

Jan 30, 2021 by

by Hannah Gal, UnHerd: When a George Floyd exhibit was announced at a Florida Holocaust museum — overlapping with today’s Holocaust Memorial Day — it provoked uproar within the Jewish community. Featuring photos taken at the spot in Minneapolis where Floyd died, the exhibition’s implied comparison between Floyd and the Shoah left many feeling outraged.

Educational Ethnic Cleansing

Jan 20, 2021 by

by Richard Kemp, Gatestone Institute: “The goal is achieved! No more Jews at German universities,” the leading Nazi student newspaper, Die Bewegung, triumphantly proclaimed in 1938.

According to a report published this week by David Collier, a British researcher, some UK universities are now virtually Judenfrei: free of Jews. This is a chilling indictment not just...

How anti-Semitism is being fostered on campus

Jan 5, 2021 by

If only. The new leader does seem sincere in his desire to decontaminate the party. But however committed Keir Starmer and his allies may be to expelling members, it’s a bit like painting the Forth Bridge. Kick one out and another will emerge. The problem runs deep. But the problem isn’t Labour per...
