  • Hook-nosed, bloodstained Jews out to trick peaceful Arabs at Annapolis summit

    By JewishJournal.com

    November 26, 2007 | 7:45 pm

    OK, Olmert says it’s no big deal the Saudis and their pals won’t ‘shake hands’ with the Jews at the conference;  at least they won’t be trotting out shopworn stereotypes about conniving Jews hoodwinking the Arab world and the international community, right?

    Or will they?

    An anti-Semitic Web site is first on Google when you search for ‘Jew,’ and e-mail about the issue is making the rounds again.

    Two people here at JewishJournal.com got the e-mail last week and both asked me what was up.  I told them not to worry, it was old news (from 2004), not to...

    The nine black youths who beat three young white women have now been sentenced by a Juvenile Court judge, and there's only one problem.

    Like Moses upholding the Tablets of the Law, Rabbi Chaim Seidler-Feller stood on the steps of UCLA's Ackerman Union last week, his outstretched arms grasping a large, hand-lettered cardboard sign, which proclaimed:

    By Rob Eshman

    April 27, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Jean David Levitte, France's ambassador to the United States, is arguably its most effective defender against charges of anti-Semitism, in no small part because he himself is Jewish.

    I met Levitte at the Beverly Hills residence of the French consul general, Phillipe Larrieu. It's a...

    Will you feel safe going to synagogue this New Year?

    The High Holidays bring a special dilemma to American congregations. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur attract more Jews to synagogue -- and more attention to American Jews in general -- than at any other time of year.

  • A Picture of Hate

    By Tad Daley

    September 29, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Quite possibly the curators missed it entirely. Or maybe they noticed it, and included it without comment as a quiet reminder that we, and they, are perhaps not entirely different after all.

    Where Jewish terrorist Eden Natan-Zada lived -- first in Rishon L'Tzion, then evidently in Tapuach -- there is ostensibly an ideology that encourages the murders he committed last week in Shfaram. This so-called ideology is no more than a translucent patina that does not conceal the...

    Usually I only respond to fair and thoughtful criticism, but I'll make an exception in this case, because people I respect tell me that Rob Eshman, the editor-in-chief of this publication, is both a smart and decent guy.

    By Joe R. Hicks

    January 27, 2005 | 7:00 pm


    Sometime in the early 1980s, a new type of crime was identified. It was called "hate crime." Although the conduct which hate crime laws were
