  • Sometimes an anti-Semitic tweet is just an anti-Semitic tweet

    By Shmuel Rosner

    July 7, 2016 | 5:10 am

    Was the tweet that Donald Trump refuses to disown anti-Semitic?

    It was not – except that it was.

    The content of the tweet was not anti-Semitic. No one would say it is anti-Semitic had it been published by, say, The Jewish Journal to protest the corrupt ways of, say, Israel’s...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) recently issued its annual report on hate in America. Mark Potok, the editor of the report, noted that there is “enormous rage in the electorate, the growth of hate groups, and also hate speech in mainstream politics to an extent that we have...

  • American Jewish students feel connected to Israel, are harassed for it

    By Shmuel Rosner

    July 28, 2015 | 4:10 am

    With some reports there is no better way to begin than presenting the main headlines:

    Jewish students in North America have a problem. They have a problem that has to do with Israel. Many of them feel that they live in a hostile environment, because of their perceived connection...

  • A Comforting Song for Holocaust Remembrance Day

    April 20, 2015 | 2:12 pm

    During last summer’s Israel-Hamas war, I experienced what daily life is like for millions of Israelis who live within range of Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic jihad rocket fire.  I traveled to the Jewish State from the U.S. to partake in an entrepreneurial leadership program for young...

  • How do we know if someone like Trevor Noah is anti-Jew?

    By Shmuel Rosner

    April 2, 2015 | 3:39 am

    Parsing a slew of jokes about Jews is a bizarre mission. It is also one that could end with ambiguous results. Not all humor is alike. Not all tastes are alike. Not all stomachs are alike. Thus, when new Daily Show host Trevor Noah tweeted about an incident in which he almost...

  • Budapest postcard: thoughts about the non-Jewish problem of anti-Semitism

    By Shmuel Rosner

    August 6, 2014 | 4:22 am

    I needed to spend a day in Budapest, in the middle of a Middle East war. Not a bad deal, as the city is beautiful. Not a bad deal for a writer in search of stories too. Hungary is home to the third largest Jewish community in Europe, and it is also home to many anti-Semitic hacks...

    The umbrella body of the Jewish community in Sydney, Australia, threatened to take action against a major newspaper for publishing a cartoon about Gaza that “racially vilifies” Jews.

  • Not criticism, anti-Semitism

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    July 17, 2014 | 8:32 am

    So many people around the world lost their lives in armed conflicts, but all eyes are on Israel, which is often being compared to the Nazis. This is where criticism becomes anti-Semitism.

    In the past couple of weeks, hundreds of people died in Yemen, as a result of clashes...

  • Oscar’s big Jewish joke

    By Danielle Berrin

    February 25, 2013 | 4:58 pm

    In what seems like an annual compulsion, the writers of The Oscars telecast routinely include jokes about Jews to remind everybody in the industry -- and everybody watching – that Jews indeed “rule” in Hollywood (whatever that imprecise measure of power means).

    But for some in...
