Left to right: Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Bill Clinton

Louis Farrakhan, the notorious antisemite, is at it again with the allegations that sexual offenses stem from the Talmud. Needless to say, this is horrifyingly offensive and false. Such statements increase our difficulty in understanding the highly placed people who refuse to disavow Farrakhan, for instance, the Women’s March leaders. It is never good when …

How to Interpret Ilhan Omar Joining the Black-Jewish Caucus

ilhan omar

It was difficult to interpret the meaning of the antisemitic congresswoman from Minnesota, Ilhan Omar, joining the newly formed black-Jewish caucus. Did she turn over a new leaf?

But in the end, only nine KKK people showed up, with an estimated 500-600 protesters showing up to protest against the protesters.

Rashida Tlaib’s Own Father Calls Her a Liar

Rashida Tlaib
