Date Fairness.com Resource Read it at: Mar 01, 2013 The Holocaust Just Got More Shocking
QUOTE: The researchers have cataloged some 42,500 Nazi ghettos and camps throughout Europe, spanning German-controlled areas from France to Russia and Germany itself, during Hitler’s reign of brutality from 1933 to 1945. The figure is so staggering that even fellow Holocaust scholars had to make sure they had heard it correctly when the lead researchers previewed their findings at an academic forum...
New York Times Aug 08, 2012 UC report on anti-Semitism draws ire
QUOTE: To students who regard Israel as an essential Jewish homeland, this event and others like it that are staged each year on University of California campuses seem hostile, like poorly concealed anti-Semitism - especially when the Israeli flag with its Star of David is paired with a Nazi swastika, says a new report by a UC fact-finding team seeking to understand Jewish students' experiences
San Francisco Chronicle Dec 21, 2011 Foes of Hungary’s Government Fear ‘Demolition of Democracy’
QUOTE: Democracy here is dying not with a single giant blow but with many small cuts, critics say, through the legal processes of Parliament that add up to a slow-motion coup. And in its drift toward authoritarian government, aided by popular disaffection with political gridlock and a public focused mainly on economic hardship, Hungary stands as a potentially troubling bellwether for other, struggling Eastern European countries with weak traditions of democratic government.
New York Times Oct 21, 2011 Cries of Anti-Semitism, but Not at Zuccotti Park

Aish HaTorah Jun 22, 2011 Nazi hunting: How France first "civilized" the Internet
QUOTE: France has long attempted to "civilize" the Internet out of things like racism and Nazi ideology by curbing their dissemination. In fact, the first battle in this war concluded a decade ago. The winner was France; the loser was the then-reigning giant of the Web—Yahoo—along with the notion that the Internet is a "global" place that inherently transcends national boundaries.
Ars Technica Jun 04, 2011 Efforts to Ban Circumcision Gain Traction in California
QUOTE: When a group of activists proposed banning circumcision in San Francisco last fall, many people simply brushed them aside. Even in that liberal seaside city, it seemed implausible that thousands of people would support an effort to outlaw an ancient ritual that Jews and Muslims believe fulfills a commandment issued by God... Activists say the measures would protect children from an unnecessary medical procedure, calling it “male genital mutilation.”
New York Times Jun 07, 2010 Reporter Retires After Words About Israel

CNN (Cable News Network) Apr 29, 2010 The Jewish Question: British Anti-Semitism
QUOTE: [Anthony Julius] is a truth-teller, and authentic enough to stand against the English literary and academic establishment, which essentially opposes the right of the state of Israel to exist, while indulging in the humbuggery that its anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism.
New York Times Apr 02, 2010 Vatican Priest Likens Criticism Over Abuse to Anti-Semitism

New York Times Jan 22, 2009 Marching for Hamas
QUOTE: To stand up against an enemy bent on your destruction is everywhere counted an act of bravery. But not when it comes to Israel....In a bizarre reversal of all their commitment to human rights and the struggle of men and women for independence and self-determination, the European Left has chosen again and again to side with the bullies and to condemn a small nation struggling to survive in a hostile neighborhood.
Jerusalem Post Dec 31, 2008 Commentary: Holocaust love story an insult to the survivors
QUOTE: We doubters could not, however, initially overcome the power of Oprah, on whose show Rosenblat and his wife appeared twice. Credulous reporters, who should have sought some form of verification, kept writing about this "miraculous" event. The producer who acquired movie rights tried to intimidate those of us who raised questions.
CNN (Cable News Network) Dec 24, 2008 In Madoff Scandal, Jews Feel an Acute Betrayal

Visotzky, a professor at the Jewish Theological Seminary.
New York Times Jun 12, 2008 Out of Step With Allies, U.S. Defends Freedom to Offend (American Exception)

Under the First Amendment, newspapers and magazines can say what they like about minority groups and religions — even false, provocative or hateful things — without legal consequence....Canada, England, France, Germany, the Netherlands, South Africa, Australia and India all have laws or have signed international conventions banning hate speech. Israel and France forbid the sale of Nazi items like swastikas and flags. It is a crime to deny the Holocaust in Canada, Germany and France.
New York Times Mar 31, 2008 Who Are We? New Dialogue on Mixed Race
QUOTE: Being accepted. Proving loyalty. Navigating the tight space between racial divides. Americans of mixed race say these are issues they have long confronted, and when Senator Barack Obama recently delivered a speech about race in Philadelphia, it rang with a special significance in their ears.
New York Times Feb 28, 2008 How Do You Prove You’re a Jew?
QUOTE: In recent years, [Israel's] Chief Rabbinate and its branches in each Israeli city have adopted an institutional attitude of skepticism toward the Jewish identity of those who enter its doors...the rabbinate, one arm of the state, increasingly treats American Jews as doubtful cases: not Jewish until proved so.

And owners of stolen artwork complain that efforts to find their collections have been stonewalled by German museums, despite a 1999 pledge to clear up the issue.
Washington Post Oct 21, 2007 A Court Decision Elbows a Village in Favor of Religious Rights
QUOTE: Peyote or no peyote, land-use planning and zoning board decisions aren’t made for thrilling public debate — unless it’s your backyard that’s involved. But the path from the North American Church to the Orthodox day school does have an Alice in Wonderland quality. It has brought the federal government someplace it has almost never been — the realm of local land use, planning and zoning decisions.
New York Times Oct 14, 2007 Racial Crisis? Or Just Rope in the Hands of Fools?
QUOTE: There are few historic moments as honored and ingrained in the American psyche as those from the civil rights struggles of the 1960s, but how much they translate to the current moment is far less clear. So maybe the product relaunch of the noose as an odious signifier of hate speech bespeaks something fundamentally askew in the national psyche.
New York Times Sep 09, 2007 Israel Arrests Suspects in Neo-Nazi Attacks

New York Times Jan 17, 2007 Ex-communist Europe's pursuit of Holocaust justice stirs anti-Semitism
QUOTE: Six decades after World War II, the once-dormant pursuit of Holocaust-related justice is forging ahead in newly democratic central-eastern Europe. Yet the hunt carries a price: It has stirred resentment among a financially struggling populace, which bristles at the multimillion-dollar property claims by their Jewish communities, and sees the harassment of nonagenarians as unnecessary or even cruel.
Christian Science Monitor Jan 08, 2007 Ex-President for Sale
QUOTE: Carter is saying that no objective journalist or politician could actually believe that America’s support for Israel is based on moral and strategic considerations and not on their own financial self-interest....It now turns out that the shoe is precisely on the other foot. Recent disclosures prove that it is Carter who has been bought and paid for by anti-Israel Arab and Islamic money.

Washington Post Aug 19, 2006 Different Focus in Atlanta on Young’s Remark
QUOTE: people who have known Mr. Young for decades seem rather satisfied that his comment that Jewish, Arab and Korean store owners had “ripped off” black neighborhoods, “selling us stale bread and bad meat and wilted vegetables” had severed his link with his most high-profile client, Wal-Mart Stores, in whose defense he made the remark.

QUOTE: Most of the concerns voiced today -- that too many immigrants seek economic advantage and fail to understand democracy, that they refuse to learn English, overcrowd homes and overwhelm public services -- were heard a century ago. And there was a nub of truth to some complaints, not least that the vast influx of immigrants drove down working-class wages.
