A boycott, divestment and sanctions movement activist was refused entry to Israel Monday, a first such case since the government introduced a bill to that effect in November. Isabel Phiri, a Malawian member of the World Council of Churches and a known BDS activist, was stopped by Ben-Gurion International Airport authorities while trying to enter Israel on a tourist visa. According to media reports, Phiri’s passport was flagged and Population and Immigration Authority officials at the airport contacted the Interior Ministry for instructions…READ MORE

Expert: If Volkswagen Subsidiary Does Business in Iran, Nazi-Founded Company Will Once Again Have Turned to Financial Enrichment Via Genocide

by Barney Breen-Portnoy
December 7, 2016

The plans of a Volkswagen-owned vehicle manufacturer to do business with Iran are morally troubling given the German automotive giant’s Nazi roots, an investigative journalist and expert on Nazi economic history told The Algemeiner…“For Volkswagen’s Czech Skoda subsidiary to make industrial pick-up trucks that could enable the advancement of the nuclear program that Tehran promises will destroy the Jewish people, this would ensure history’s determination that this company, Volkswagen, has once again turned to financial enrichment via genocide,” Edwin Black — author of the 2001 book IBM and the Holocaust: The Strategic Alliance between Nazi Germany and America’s Most Powerful Corporation — said.

Colleges aren’t just politically correct — they’re anti-Semitic
by Andrea Peyser
December 5, 2016

It was billed as a rally for students to demand free tuition from public institutions of higher education and lodge a cornucopia of grievances. Instead, some giddy demonstrators devolved into a pack of rabid haters. “Death to Jews! Death to Jews!” members of the crowd shrieked. This didn’t happen in Germany in the 1930s, nor was it a modern-day ISIS extravaganza. The hatefest occurred last year at the Million Student March at Manhattan’s Hunter College, part of the City University of New York…Welcome to today’s colleges and universities. READ MORE

Ohio State University incident “an example of Obama administration’s reckless refugee resettlement policy”

AMERICAN THINKER
Ending Multicultural Madness
by Peter Skurkiss
December 6, 2016

The United States is importing people with a religious and cultural propensity to commit horrific acts of hatred and revenge against Western Civilization. This is madness rooted in politics. On November 28, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, a Somali-born Muslim inspired by ISIS, went on a rampage at Ohio State University. He injured 11 when he rammed his car into a group of students with murderous intent and then immediately went on a knife attack before campus security shot him dead. No soon had this fanatic’s body reached room temperature then Stephanie Clemons Thompson, employed as something called an “assistant director of resident life a Ohio State,” started calling for sympathy and compassion for Artan and lamented that he was taken out so quickly.

Terror Enablers: Why do US taxpayers continue underwriting Palestinian Authority payments to families of terrorists?

GOP Senators Demand Palestinians Stop Rewarding Terrorism
by Paul Miller
December 5, 2016

Receiving over $300 million in 2016 for aid from the U.S., $550 million the previous year, Palestinian terrorists and their families receive a monthly stipend for the murder or attempted murder of civilians. According to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the PA will pay nearly $140 million to terrorists and their families in 2016. Amounts range from $364 to over $3,100 per month. NRK-TV in Norway reported earlier this year that the more heinous the attack, the higher the monthly stipend. Making Americans complicit in terrorism, or “pay to slay” as it’s referred to by Israel advocates, is not a new phenomenon. But new efforts have emerged to make the PA accountable to the U.S. taxpayer. READ MORE

Kerry takes harsh tone on Israel, suggests opening for action at UN
by Julian Hattem
December 5, 2016

Secretary of State John Kerry is taking an unusually harsh tone against the Israeli government, warning about recent language that appeared to undermine the prospects of side-by-side Israeli and Palestinian states. The United States’ top diplomat notably declined to unequivocally rule out blocking any action at the United Nations Security Council on the issue on Sunday, suggesting the possibility of a radical move late in the Obama administration, albeit a slim one…Kerry’s comments hint at the exasperation in the Obama administration and fears about emboldening of Israeli hard-liners as President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office.
