  • National Post KAY VS. KAY: HAS CANADA BEEN GOOD FOR THE JEWS? Thursday July 13th, 2017
    As Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary, it offers the opportunity for the Jewish community to evaluate its role within Canadian society, and how it has evolved since Confederation. Has Canada been good for the Jews? Has the anti-Semitism that previous generations faced after immigrating to this country largely disappeared? Or have many of the anti-Jewish sentiments th...
  • National Post The deplorables’ get their moment. Break out the pointed hoods Wednesday November 16th, 2016
    An old New Yorker cartoon sprang to mind in the days following the U.S. election. In it, rain pours down in sheets. Two frowning children inside a car parked roadside are peering out at their sodden, frustrated father who is struggling to change a tire. The caption reads: “I can’t change the channel. This is real life.” The shock of Donald Trump winning has discom...
  • National Post The Enemy Within the “Safe Spaces” of Jews on campus Friday May 27th, 2016
    Academia is awash in social justice warriors (SJW). There are SJW consumed with racism, gender and Islamophobia, but the issue that looms largest and most relentlessly on all campuses with a sizable Jewish population is anti-Zionism. A demonstration of one’s unnuanced hostility to Israel coupled with unconditional sympathy for the plight of the Palestinians has become something of ...
  • National Post The scourge of anti-Semitic Jews Wednesday April 13th, 2016
    A poster from the Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website, made the rounds on U.S. campuses recently. It reads: “White man: are you sick and tired of the Jews destroying your country through mass immigration and degeneracy? Join us in the struggle for global white supremacy at the Daily Stormer.” If I had seen that poster in my youth, it would have felt like a punch to the gu...
  • National Post Kay vs. Kay Friday April 8th, 2016
    Barbara Kay: One of the most popular books in Israel right now is Catch the Jew! by gonzo journalist Tuvia Tenenbom. Tenenbom is a German-Israeli Jew who lives in New York. His advantage as a reporter is that his German – his mother tongue – is so perfect he can pass as ethnically German and often does (at such times he goes by “Tobias”). ‘Catch the Jew&rsqu...
  • National Post The link between BDS and Jew hatred on campus Tuesday March 22nd, 2016
     In a Feb. 25 Facebook post, McGill student Molly Harris recounted her experience in a “Rez (residence) Project” workshop, a (mandatory) three-hour discussion on “oppression, privilege, consent and race” designed to create a “safe space” for fellow dorm students. Molly described an incident when, singled out negatively for being Jewish, she f...
  • National Post Anti-Israel crusader Max Blumenthal does not deserve the honour of a PEN Canada audience Tuesday February 23rd, 2016
    Marking Freedom to Read Week, on Wednesday,  Feb, 24, at the Toronto Reference Library, PEN Canada will present, “Embattled Truths: Reporting on Gaza,” a talk by U.S. polemicist Max Blumenthal followed by a conversation with Toronto Star foreign affairs reporter Olivia Ward. Blumenthal is blurbed in the invitation as an “acclaimed U.S. journalist” who will &l...
  • National Post Jew hatred, throughout the ages Wednesday November 4th, 2015
    During the Second World War, civilization as we knew it perished in the fires of the Holocaust. The fires were stoked by a hatred whose ferocity had no precedent in human history. Shocked to the core, we thought we would never see its like again. We are seeing it again, but we are shy to call it by its name, lest we be forced to admit that there is no atrocity so egregious it cannot serv...
  • National Post In France, there’s no hatred for any group equivalent to that of Jew hatred Tuesday April 21st, 2015
    France’s Prime Minister Manuel Valls has announced an action plan that will make the battle against hatred into “a great national cause,” a plan that will include awareness programs and enhanced punishment for online hate speech, with stiffer prison sentences for hatred-based crimes. The superficially admirable plan springs from honest outrage on Valls’ part &mdas...
  • National Post So long to one of Canada’s nastiest protest groups, Queers Against Israeli Apartheid Tuesday March 3rd, 2015
    One of Canada’s nastiest protest groups, Queers Against Israeli Apartheid (QUAIA), officially retired from operation at the end of February. Few tears will be shed at its demise. QUAIA was to Pride Toronto as the cuckoo is to the avian kingdom: a bird distinguished by the strident but meaningless monotony of its call and by the contempt the cuckoo arouses in other birds for its par...
  • National Post Civilized people choose words, not revenge Thursday January 15th, 2015
    In his Jan 14 column in the National Post, Andrew Coyne tackles the much-debated topic of the Charlie Hebdo cartoons that deeply offend adherents of all three of the Abrahamic faiths, some of which – the ones insulting Muhammad, that is – Quebec media have freely published, but most English media have not (the National Post was one of the few that did).   ...
  • National Post The Jewish exodus from France Wednesday January 14th, 2015
    Commenting on the kosher-market pogrom that followed the Charlie Hebdo massacre, the French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls, who seems a decent, sensitive fellow, and who has openly acknowledged the seething maelstrom of anti-Semitism in France’s “difficult neighbourhoods,” said: “The Jews of France are profoundly attached to France, but they need reassurance that th...
  • National Post Charlie Hebdo massacre shakes French determination to ignore Islamist threat Friday January 9th, 2015
    The pen may be mightier than the sword in the long run, but we live in the short run, and in the short run, the sword is often mightier than the pen. Paris shooters cornered in printing plant with a hostage. Brothers say they ‘want to die as martyrs’ Terrorists linked to each other seized hostages at two locations around Paris on Friday, facing off against ...
  • National Post Paris attack represents Islamist hate that knows no boundaries Wednesday January 7th, 2015
    It is a black day in France for loss of human life and — more important historically — a black day for democracy’s greatest gift to the world: the principle of freedom of speech. Three masked Islamic terrorists, armed with Kalashnikov rifles and a rocket-propelled grenade, stormed the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, killing 12 and ...
  • National Post The hate that feeds the war Wednesday August 13th, 2014
    As the twig is bent, so grows the tree. In every religious faith, in every ideology, leaders know that the surest route to mass compliance and unshakable faith is through the children. Get ‘em early and, if possible (in democracies it isn’t), insulate them from any competing belief system. If there is ever to be harmony between Israel and the Palestinians, it won’...
  • National Post On foreign shores, anti-Semitism still rages Wednesday August 28th, 2013
    It’s been many years since anti-Semitic motifs — like cartoons showing money-obsessed Jews lusting after power — have been part of mainstream culture here in North America. Yet in other parts of the world, such offensive notions are flourishing. Extreme Judeophobia is widespread in the Middle East, where many Arabs imbibe it at home, school and mosque. All educated peop...
  • National Post It takes a jihadi village Tuesday March 27th, 2012
    Mohamed Merah is captured in this frame grab from a video broadcast by a French television station.    In the immediate aftermath of the recent bloodbath executed by Mohamed Merah in Toulouse, leaving three French paratroopers, a Jewish teacher, his two sons and another Jewish child dead, a number of observers were quick to label Merah a "psychopath" and a &q...
  • National Post Merah may have hunted alone, but he was no lone wolf Monday March 26th, 2012
    In the immediate aftermath of the recent bloodbath executed by Mohamed Merah in Toulouse, leaving three French paratroopers, a Jewish teacher, his two sons and another Jewish child dead, a number of observers were quick to label Merah a “psychopath” and a “lone wolf.” Even though he claimed to be working for al-Qaeda, his words were brushed away as the delusions o...
  • National Post Israel’s worst enemies often come from within Wednesday February 29th, 2012
    The Vladimir Schreiber Institute of Mathematics at Tel-Aviv University. George Orwell once said, “England is the only great nation whose intellectuals are ashamed of their country.” Orwell never met Israeli intellectuals. As the Post noted in its Saturday editorial, Israel Apartheid Week (IAW) is declining in vigour on North American campuses. But at Israel’s fo...
  • National Post Anti-Semitism's useful idiots Wednesday December 22nd, 2010
    Barbara Kay, National Post · Wednesday, Dec. 22, 2010 I hope, after I have shuffled off this mortal coil, that none of my granddaughters will turn into useful idiots for a rotten political movement riddled with anti-Semitism. If they do, they are hereby warned not to "pull a Peto" on me. Jenny Peto is the 29-year old student at the O...
