    The Algemeiner “was founded in 1972 by famed journalist Gershon Jacobson as Der Algemeiner Journal and was originally published in Yiddish.” It’s one of the leading “Jewish” publications, more moderate in its politics than some others, and a source we frequently link to for matters regarding the anti-Israel movement on campuses.

    We have covered the radical Islamist group American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) extensively, especially as the group has increasingly framed its anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism as expressions of 'intersectional' social justice activism. In 2020, AMP has yet again used its largest annual event—the "Palestine Conference"—to hijack and foment existing racial tensions as a political warfare weapon against Israel.

    As regular readers doubtlessly know, the 2018 midterm elections presented Americans with a new phenomenon in the form of the congressional "Squad": several avowedly anti-Israel (and often Islamist-allied) first-term U.S. Representatives. Now, as the smoke from #Election2020 begins to dissipate, it seems that (spoiler alert) The Squad's congressional anti-Zionist cabal is about to get a little bigger.

    Over the weekend, Jewish News Syndicate (JNS) unveiled its list of the Top 40 Global Advocates for Israel Online and it included a name familiar to Legal Insurrection readers: LI author Vijeta Uniyal.

    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez—darling of the far-left and heroine of the anti-Israel lobby—recently canceled an appearance sponsored by far left 'pro-Israel' groups, and reportedly is avoiding meeting with mainstream Jewish groups. In this post, I go over the background of how we got here.

    Iran's growing aggression played a factor in Arab states reconsidering their policy towards Israel, a senior Emirati minister admitted. Iran's hostile behavior towards its Arab neighbors made them look at the Jewish State "with fresh eyes," UAE’s Deputy Foreign Minister, Anwar Gargash, said. The UAE, along with Bahrain, signed a historic peace agreement with Israel at a White House ceremony on September 15. 

    The Palestinian Authority's new school curriculum infuses antisemitism in young minds and glorifies jihad terrorism, reveals a recently released report by IMPACT-se, an NGO that monitors school textbooks around the world. The report, which analyzed 222 textbooks for the 2020-21 academic year, found that they "remain openly antisemitic and continue to encourage violence, jihad and martyrdom."
