When Rosh Hashanah ended on Tuesday evening, Jews discovered that over the holiday, the Trump administration had enacted two policies – one foreign and one domestic – that on their face, don’t appear to be connected. But actually, they stem from the same rationale. And both together and separately, these two policies give Jews much to be thankful for. Continue Reading »
Vacating a 2014 decision by the Obama administration, the U.S. Education Department decided to adopt the international definition of anti-Semitism that recognizes how Jew-hatred can be camouflaged as anti-Zionism or anti-Israel bias.
By Israel Hayom Staff
The U.S. Education Department’s Office of Civil Rights has decided to adopt the international definition of anti-Semitism, which defines Judaism not only as a religion but also an ethnicity and includes holding Jews responsible for Israel’s actions as a form of anti-Semitism, Israel Hayom learned Wednesday.
According to a letter written by Assistant Education Secretary for Civil Rights Kenneth L. Marcus to the Zionist Organization of America, anyone who acts “to deny the right of the Jewish people to self-determination, on the grounds that the State of Israel’s existence is a racist endeavor” or applies double standards to Israel that it does not apply to any other democratic country will be deemed an anti-Semite.

Europe’s rise in anti-Semitism stems from an acute indifference to the horrors of the Holocaust, that stems from the lack of a proper education, the ongoing ‘black propaganda’ and disinformation still being waged against the Jews, vis-à-vis Israel.
The Shoah was one of the gravest tragedies in history, yet many countries were apathetic and indifferent at the time. It took quite a while for the United States to take action. The United Kingdom was aware of what was happening, nevertheless, it initially followed a policy that emboldened Hitler. Today, even though in Western countries the Holocaust has acquired its status and is affirmed in the legislation of many, things are quite different in the Muslim world. Continue Reading »

American envoy says Abbas knew the US was “not taking a position on any final status issues, including the specific boundaries of the Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem,” and yet he purposely “overreacted” and made “ugly, needlessly provocative and antisemitic,” calls for violence. – Amb. Friedman, ‘US Jews of all streams owe Trump enormous debt of gratitude for Jerusalem move.’
Some of the Palestinian rhetoric in response to US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem has been “ugly, needlessly provocative and antisemitic,” US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman told The Jerusalem Post.
Friedman, a leading force behind Trump’s decision three weeks ago to recognize Jerusalem and move the US embassy there from Tel Aviv, characterized the Palestinian reaction as “largely emotional,” saying they “unfortunately overreacted” because Trump made clear that the US was “not taking a position on any final status issues, including the specific boundaries of the Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem.”
