Stalin purges editors of Soviet Encyclopedia after discovery that 1.2% of entries don't mention his name

On Monday, May 17th, 2010 in News, The Israel-Palestine Conflict.

By HAVIV RETTIG GUR Editors fight against anti-Israel ‘mobs.’ The international campaign to erode Israel’s legitimacy is slowly expanding its reach into the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, according to Israeli sources familiar with the Web site’s operations. The collaborative reader-edited encyclopedia is the Internet’s sixth-most popular Web site, making it a central clearinghouse for knowledge and opinion worldwide. Since it is written by the public, it tends to deal in greater detail with issues in the media spotlight. No wonder, then,

Of boycotts

While the international boycott against apartheid South Africa is credited with leading to the regime’s downfall, here it is considered irrelevant and unworthy of comparison. By Gideon Levy. Most people here are appalled at the notion that anybody beyond Israel’s borders would think to boycott their country, products or universities.

Kagan Approved Holocaust Revisionism At Harvard When Alan Dershowitz was exposed as a plagiarist in 2003, he launched a hysterical smear campaign against Norman Finkelstein, who exposed him in the most humiliating (and hilarious fashion). One of the many slanders aimed at Finkelstein was the charge that his mother (a survivor of the Nazi concentration camps, whose family had been exterminated by the Nazis, and who was a government witness in war crimes trials against Nazi guards and deportation hearings

Sanity in Canada?

On Sunday, May 16th, 2010 in News, The Israel-Palestine Conflict.

Here’s a good-news story out of Montreal: Grassroots Jewish leaders are standing up to B’nai Brith’s cynical campaign to convince the world that Canada is a cesspool of violent anti-Semitism. I last wrote about B’nai Brith in January when the organization issued a bizarre press release comparing the lack of female ski jumpers at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics to the policies of Adolf Hitler. This was part of a pattern of hysteria at BB, I noted: “Every year, B’nai Brith

When he resigned from the government just before the disengagement from Gaza, Netanyahu mentioned his father as one of the reasons for his move (Prof. Netanyahu opposed the disengagement plan). “From you I’ve learned, father,” said Netanyahu
