The Black Lives Matter movement shows clear signs of unrepentant anti-Semitism. This was the view of two experts in a recent webinar forum held by the Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET). Center for Security Policy senior fellow and senior contributor and chief columnist for The Jerusalem Post Caroline Glick joined President of Americans for Peace and Tolerance Charles Jacob in discussing the growing signs of virulent anti-Semitism from within the Black Lives Matter movement.
Center expert David Wurmser joins EMET to discuss future of Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria
In a program hosted by the Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET), David Wurmser, Director of the Center’s Project on Global anti-Semitism and the US-Israel Relationship, joined Alex Traiman to discuss Israel’s decision whether or not to extend sovereignty over parts of Judea and Samaria
“The debate over Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria is not an issue of disputed…
Re-evaluating how semantics are utilized when talking about Israel, is central to correcting the false narrative when it comes to most pervasive anti-Semitism in the US, which is anti-Zionism. Incorrect verbiage is not just words on a page, online, or said in casual conversation – it also leads to car ramming attacks in Jerusalem, stabbings in Judea and Samaria, rocket attacks at Israeli civilians living in the Gaza Envelope.
In a time of a health and economic crisis, civil unrest, and a week of difficult supreme court rulings, the President’s moves in the coming days regarding the extension of Israeli law to the areas in the territories occupied in 1967 appear little other than a distraction. And yet, they may be among his most important and lasting decisions.
President Trump’s withdrawal of the United States from the 2015 nuclear deal struck by the Obama administration with Iran appears to be a significant success.
As popular animosity towards Iran continues to grow, the Islamic Republic may lose its strategic foothold in the region. On May 7, the Iraqi Parliament swore in Mustafa Al-Kadhimi as its new prime minister. Iraqi officials are hopeful his leadership will bring stability to the region and curtail months of political unrest and protests.
In the last week, three major infrastructure issues have seized headlines in Israel in the context of the growing tensions between the United States and China: a major desalination plant, the development of a 5G network, and now bidding on a major new power plant.
Sometimes events provide clarifying moments. The European Union’s response to the prospect of Israel’s annexation of parts of the Jordan Valley, in which several almost entirely Jewish settlement blocs are located, is such a moment. By dressing up cynical political calculations as “the rule of law,” Europe in fact risks undermining Jewish rights and violating the very body of international law EU leaders claim to defend.
The American experiment with immigration has always presumed that those coming to the United States had the intention of becoming Americans, putting aside old allegiances, and thereby integrating into society. It was also understood that immigrants would endeavor to keep elements of their cultural and religious traditions intact in the New World, and that some of these may even eventually be adopted and “Americanized” by the native populace.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has strayed a long distance from its stated mission “to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.” It expressed outrage last week that some people, notably my fellow PJ Media columnist Raymond Ibrahim and me, have been covering some of the more bizarre and disquieting reactions to the coronavirus in the Islamic world.
Adding to Israel’s recent indecisive Knesset elections has been more political chaos caused by judicial activism and major shifts in Israeli culture. In this occasional paper, Dr. David Wurmser, Director of the Center’s Project on Global Anti-Semitism and the U.S.-Israel Relationship, provides an in-depth analysis of this situation and what it means for Israel’s future.
Recently the latest darling of the left, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D.-Mich.), expressed how calm she felt thinking about the Holocaust – because that is the most appropriate feeling to have regarding the greatest targeted genocide towards a group of people in modern history. To drive a bulldozer through this falsehood requires unearthing a series of historical truths hidden beneath the Arab propaganda cloaked in antisemitism.
The government is described in the agreement as a “national emergency government” to deal with the three key issues of plague, economic crisis and peace plan, and as such the agreement places a six-month moratorium on any significant legislative initiatives which could change the status quo other than those dealing with the three main crises outlined in the agreement.
David Wurmser, Director of CSP’s new program on fighting global anti-Semitism and defending the US-Israel relationship, joins Secure Freedom Radio to discuss the strategic importance of Israel to the United States and the ongoing efforts in Israel to form a government.
