'Saturday Night Live' made a joke about Israel discriminating against non-Jews and U.S. Jewish groups accused it of bloodcurdling antisemitism. It wasn’t antisemitic at all
Joshua Shanes is Associate Professor of Jewish Studies at the College of Charleston and Director of its Arnold Center for Israel
In its race to absolve Marjorie Taylor Greene and divert attention towards Ilhan Omar, the GOP is pushing a totally false comparison which whitewashes the persistent antisemitism within its own party
The arc of ex-Never Trump Jews like Bethany Mandel, who feared Trump for stoking antisemitism but now love him for aiding Israel’s territorial maximalists, is a sad tale of indifference to human suffering
Opinion John Hagee Is a Muslim-hating, Antisemitic, Annexationist Extremist. He’s No Friend of Israel
Real friends of Israel should steer clear of hate preacher and CUFI head John Hagee’s blood-soaked annexation-to-Armageddon theological-territorial drama, and its invisible Palestinians
Opinion For pro-Trump Racists in America and Israel, Black and Palestinian Lives Don't Really Matter
After police killings of African Americans and Palestinians, an increasingly integrated white nationalist, Evangelical and right-wing Orthodox Jewish coalition blames them for being shot

The mantra ‘never again’ – the clarion call to teach the Holocaust in order to prevent such atrocities in the future – demands we study how those catastrophes occurred and avert their repetition
It's no coincidence that Trump's key boosters serially rehabilitate Hitler's nationalism, or that Candace Owens loves the idea that the Nazi dictator just wanted to 'make Germany great again'

For Liberal Zionists, the vitriolic explosion against the Palestinian-American congresswoman should be familiar. The anti-BDS movement calls us - and anyone who opposes Israeli policies - 'anti-Semites' too, and it's only getting worse
This should have been our moment to stand our ground: Reject conflating Israel with West Bank settlements, reject slurring Airbnb as anti-Semitic. Sadly, mainstream U.S. Jewish groups gave in to the right wing's dangerous campaign – and did so in our name
The 132 blank pages intending to undermine Palestinian claims to nationhood aren't just snark or bad history. They provide the fodder for an unending, bloody conflict
150 years ago, two powerful leaders chose whether to normalize anti-Semitic hate and its violent spinoffs. Will Trump be like Franz Joseph or the pogrom-stoking Tsar? Will he rescind Bannon's appointment and disavow the dog whistles that brought him to power?
Trump’s speech last week crossed new lines, closely mirroring the apocalyptic language of infamous anti-Semites of the late 19th and 20th centuries, all to fire up his white nationalist, anti-Semitic base. His claims the election is being ‘stolen’ and ‘rigged’ come from the same tradition.
