Sign The Petition to List the IRGC as a Terrorist Organization within the Next 30 Days in Canada

By B’Nai Brith Canada

Nineteen months have elapsed since the Canada House of Commons passed a bipartisan motion calling on the government to “immediately” list Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), in its entirety, as a terrorist organization. Nevertheless, the government has not yet followed through on this commitment. It makes little sense to ban only the “military wing” of any terrorist organization, whether Hezbollah or the IRGC. The principal objective of the IRGC, tasked with upholding the brutal Islamist dictatorship and supporting its terror proxies such as Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, is to fuel and fund terrorism. It serves as a constant threat to the safety and security of civilians in the region, to Israel, and to Canada and Canadian interests. Sign the petition here

The Combat Anti-Semitism (CAS) Movement commends and supports South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem for signing an executive order prohibiting state offices from doing business with companies that boycott Israel. South Dakota became the 28th state to enact a measure to combat boycotts of Israel. With Israel-related anti-Semitism on the rise across the world, the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement believes this step will go far in ensuring that the anti-Semitic BDS movement does not gain traction. We call upon the 22 states that have not passed similar measures to do so without delay.

Ukraine Jewish community outraged as online store sells anti-Semitic T-shirt

By TOI Staff

Ukraine’s Jewish community has expressed outrage after an online store marketed an anti-Semitic shirt. The local store NU SHO recently uploaded an Instagram post advertising a black T-shirt with the writing: “Holy sh*t, are you a Yid?” “Yid” means “Jew” in Yiddish, but the term has taken on an anti-Semitic connotation, particularly in Eastern Europe, where it is used by many non-Jews as a pejorative. The store subsequently took down the ad and apologized to anyone who was offended, but also argued that the shirt is not anti-Semitic. Read Here

Anti-Semitic students have openly advocated not only for a boycott of Israel, but of pro-Israel students as well. Read Here

It’s especially important for us to speak against hate in our own camp.” Davidson and Hirsch argued that it is anti-Semitic to compare Israel with the Nazis and equate Zionism with racism.  Read Here

1. ‘Uncut Gems’ puts age-old Jewish stereotypes front and center. Why has there been no backlash?


It might be surprising that “Uncut Gems,” the acclaimed thriller starring Adam Sandler that depicts a series of age-old negative tropes about Jews, hasn’t been subject to public scrutiny. Sandler’s Howard, who another character calls a “crazy Jew,” is a parody of the anti-Semitic caricature that paints Jews as cheap and profit-driven. So why hasn’t there been an angry response from Jewish organizations or on social media? Likely because of how it approaches and depicts its Jewish protagonist with a real sense of authenticity.

Belatedly, everybody now agrees that combating “cyber hate” is a top priority, and Israel’s Justice Ministry even has a department dedicated to the fight against online incitement. The moment that changed this was the 2001 World Conference Against Racism, known as Durban I.

3. How to combat the uptick in anti-Semitic attacks

By John Hagee

Two main policy prescriptions for combating anti-Semitism remain: education and security. Local, state and federal education authorities need to immediately prioritize Holocaust education. Proper education will combat anti-Semitism for future generations, but the problem exists here and now. I fully endorse Sen. Chuck Schumer’s call to quadruple the funds provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency administered Nonprofit Security Grant Program. This should enjoy widespread bipartisan support . Steps must be taken to protect religiously oriented locations. Read Here

4. With surge in anti-Semitism, political leaders need to be aggressive and reflective in response


Both parties have elements that engage in harmful and sometimes hateful language.  We need to point out anti-Semitism, intentional or not, cloaked in the legitimacy of policy debate. The Senate should pass bipartisan legislation already approved in the House to upgrade the role of Special Envoy for Monitoring and Combatting anti-Semitism as an ambassador rank official. The current position does not have the power or authority of a presidentially appointed finding. Read Here

5. Why intersectionality fails the Jews

By Batsheva Neuer

Identifying Jews as white is not only a perversion of the Jewish past but a denial of its peoplehood. Only a collective amnesia would preclude us from recalling just how recently Jews were still barred from hotels, restaurants, country clubs, neighborhoods and universities. It is nearly impossible to imagine that any other group who had one out of every three of its members wiped out in a six-year span would be considered privileged. The absorption of Jewishness into whiteness is both an erasure of Jewish ethnicity and misrepresentation of the dynamic Jewish identity. It also accentuates anti-Semitic tropes based on Jewish power. Read Here

1. A portrait of Canadian Jewry and B’nai Brith Canada


Meet B’nai Brith: Canada’s voice in promoting Jewish unity and continuity, which advocates on behalf of senior citizens, and combats anti-Semitism and racism. In Canada, too, there were a number of incidents with respect to political candidates that espoused anti-Semitic viewpoints, but we did not hesitate to talk to the public about it. Candidates have lost because they compared Israel to Nazi Germany, and tenured professors who denied the Holocaust faced the consequences; we are proud of our role in increasing transparency and educating the public. Zionism is an inherent part of our Jewish faith. When you respect yourself strongly, others will respect you as well. Read Here

“Combat anti-Semitism (CAS) is a non-partisan, global grassroots movement of interfaith individuals and organizations united to combat anti-Semitism. CAS exposes anti-Semitic activity from across the ideological spectrum and highlights those working to fight against its resurgence. One of the most pernicious forms of modern anti-Semitism is the effort to deny and delegitimize the Jewish people’s right to self-determination and their profound historic, religious and cultural connection to their ancestral homeland, Israel. Humanity flourishes when religious, ethnic, and cultural diversity is respected, and we hope to encourage understanding and set an example through our work. Anti-Semitism is the oldest form of bigotry and by working to eliminate it, we hope tragedies like the holocaust or any incidents of hate inspired speech or violence perpetrated against the Jewish people, Israel, or any discriminated group are reduced significantly.”
