Victimized by Fake News: Setting the Record Straight on Matthew Kelly Speaking at BRS

Fake news doesn’t distinguish between parties or victims. At the end of his term, former President Obama bemoaned the explosion of fake news and current President Trump has referenced the phrase often since entering office. This month, lawmakers introduced two bills that would legislate schools to teach students how to...

Moving the American Embassy Would Send a Very Powerful, Long-Overdue Message

The fear that President Donald Trump might fulfill his campaign promise to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem has caused considerable angst for PA Chairman Mahmoud and Jordan’s King Abdullah, who met to discuss what steps can be taken to prevent the move. As expected, Abbas claimed this decision “is more than a provocation and will harm the entire peace process.”

The Palestinian Media Watch reported that in a sermon at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, PA Mufti Sheikh Muhammad Hussein said: “The promise of the president-elect [Trump] to transfer the embassy is not only an attack on the Palestinians, but rather on [all of] the Arabs and Muslims. The Muslims and Arabs will not...

Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas claimed the decision would put the Middle East peace process and the whole world into a “crisis.” His close advisor Mahmoud al-Habash called the move “a declaration of war on Muslims.” Ynet noted this description is significant because it echoed a similar sentiment expressed by former Jerusalem Mufti Achrama Sabri, whose extreme views generally do not reflect those of...

Furthermore, the resolution “Underlines that it will not recognize any changes to the 4 June 1967 lines, including with regard to Jerusalem, other than those agreed by the parties through negotiations…”

Four of the five permanent members of the Security...

Join the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Its Fight Against BDS in Our Local Communities

“Who today under the flag of the BDS movement calls to boycott Israeli goods and services speaks the same language in which people were called to not buy from Jews. That is nothing other than coarse anti-Semitism.”

While I have had the opportunity to testify before many municipal governing bodies over the past few weeks exposing the true anti-Semitic nature of the BDS movement, the quote above was not one of my creation, it rather passed through the lips of Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel.
