Are the "false flag" theories about the anti-Semitic threats vindicated by the bust of a left-wing ex-journo? No, because exploiting anti-Semitism to score points is still anti-Semitic.

A former journalist named Juan Thompson, who was sacked by the Intercept&nbsp

The rise of far-right "anti-Europe" parties in the Europarliament elections echoes escalating ultra-nationalist and neo-fascist rhetoric on both sides in the Russo-Ukraine conflict.

The May 24 shooting at the Jewish Museum of Belgium in Brussels, that left three dead, is greeted by the usual ridiculous bet-hedging. CNN typically writes: "The circumstances of the shooting have raised suspicions that it may have been an a

Putin's propagandists have everything invested in exaggerating the fascist threat in Ukraine, while the "MSM" in the West have everything invested in denying it.

Hillel Cohen, Ukraine director of the Jewish ambulance corps Hatzalah, was stabbed the night of March 14 in Kiev by a group of men who reportedly hurled anti-Semitic slurs during the attack—making him the third Jew to be assaulted, and the second to be stabbed, in the city since January.

Your trusty blogger, long threatened by Zionist hoodlums for supporting Palestine, now finds out that he has an entry on "Metapedia," the Wikipedia for neo-Nazis.

We always say there's no vindication like getting it from both sides, but this is about as vindicating as it gets. Your trusty blogger has long taken pride that my name appears on the Jewish Self-Hating and/or Israel-Threatening (SHIT) List, compiled by some proverbial Zionist hoodlums who wish to intimidate critics of the settler state. I assume I won this honor through my bloggery, my anti-Zionist website New Jewish Resistance, and my interviews with Palestinian activists on WBAI over the years. It has certinaly been very handy for me—I can trot out this impeccable credential every time some anti-Semite accuses me of being "pro-Zionist" for calling out Jew-hatred. So now I was just pleased to find that I have my own hateful little entry in Metapedia, a sort of Wikipedia for neo-Nazis. (See their flattering entry for Adolf Hitler.) So the next time some Zionist hoodlum accuses me of being "self-hating," I'll know just what to do...

Ron Paul is scheduled to speak at a confab sponsored by a wing of the "Traditionalist" Catholic schism, sharing the bill with Italian neo-fascist leader Roberto Fiore. Still rooting for this reactionary twit?

Ron Paul's connections to the neo-fascist right are already well established, for those who are paying attention. Now it seems his longtime connection to the John Birch Society has led him deeper into the radical right nexus.

Hundreds of neo-Nazis attempted to march on Dresden to crash commemorations of the 1945 Allied bombardment, and were blocked by a human chain of thousands of anti-fascists. 

In what has now become an annual ritual, a group of hundreds of neo-Nazis attempted to march on Dresden's city center to crash commemorations of the 1945 Allied bombardment of the eastern German city, and were blocked by a human chain of thousands of anti-fascist activists. Some 13,000 anti-fascists linked arms in a chain stretching for

Legal action is threatened against Hungary's far-right Jobbik party after lawmaker Marton Gyongyosi called for an official "list" of influential Jews in the country. 

Hungary's far-right Jobbik party is radicalizing as fast as it is being mainstreamed. Prime Minister Viktor Orban belatedly condemned Jobbik lawmaker Marton Gyongyosi's call to create a list of Jewish politicians—the day after some 10,000 demonstrated in Budapest to protest the proposal.

A right-wing "Identity Group" seized a mosque in Poitiers, issuing a "declaration of war" against the "Islamization" of France—weeks after a bomb attack on a kosher shop in Paris. 

The interminable divide-and-rule game between Muslims and Jews worldwide goes on, with the latest maddening development in France.

Calling the accused perp in the Oak Creek massacre "insane" misses the point in a fatal way. His atrocity was a political act, and the reply must be political, not therapeutic.

The Aug. 6 massacre of six worshippers at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis. is revealing in its reactions from across the spectrum, but let's start with Mitt Romney.

The Judeophobic filth that has appeared on MondoWeiss needs to be called out. But once again—why is it only neocon propagandists who will take it on? When will the anti-fascist and anti-Zionist left step up to the plate?

Here we go again. We ourselves have noted before the insidious mainstreaming of anti-Semitism in "progressive" discourse by the likes of the execrable MondoWeiss blog.

A judge ordered ex-president Carlos Saúl Menem to stand trial on charges he impeded a probe into the 1994 bombing of the Argentine Jewish Mutual Association, the world's worst anti-Semitic attack since World War II.

Unidentified Argentine judicial sources reported on March 30 that federal judge Ariel Lijo has ordered former president Carlos Saúl Menem (1989-1999) to stand trial on charges that during his presidency he impeded the initial investigation into a July 1994 bombing

Two years ago when we reported revelations that two Czech NATO commanders in Afghanistan had worn Nazi SS regalia while on duty, everyone told us it was an isolated incident and not to make a big deal of it. What do you say now, pronoiacs?

"Anonymous" attacked the website of the neo-Nazi outfit American Third Position, splashing internal e-mails on the group's homepage—to reveal that the "A3P" white supremacists are a well integrated into Ron Paul's political machine! 

Us old-school lefties have been wondering for a quite some time, which is more annoying—the legions of "Anonymous" hacktivists who think that faceless adventurism is the cutting-edge of revolution, or Ron Paul supporters who think that this ultra-reactionary Republ

Despite the media line that Greece's new "austerity" government is staffed by non-ideological "technocrats," the administration includes figures from the old-line Greek fascist right, spawn of the military junta that ruled from 1967 to 1974.

The hegemonic media line that Greece's new "austerity" government is being staffed by non-ideological "technocrats" is deflated by Mark Ames on the N

Vandals torched three cars and scrawled hateful graffiti to mark the anniversary of Kristallnacht this year in Brooklyn's heavily Jewish neighborhood of Midwood. City politicians make the requisite condemnations—even as they betray the Palestinians with endless pro-Israel pronouncements. Where is the single-standard anti-racism?

A wave of anti-Semitism in Lithuania is seized upon by Israeli commentators to delegitimize Lithuania's vote for Palestine's UNESCO entry. Meanwhile, Israel's own UN ambassador is caught in a photo-op with French ultra-rightist Marine Le Pen...

In the wake of this week's UNESCO vote to admit Palestine as a full member, the legacy of World War II and the Holocaust is once again being used as a political football.

The Occupy Wall Street movement is a big tent, and that's a good thing. But activists should develop some savvy about the conspiranoid thinking that characterizes certain elements at the protests—like their obsessive fixation on the Federal Reserve

Like the rest of our fellow lefties, we've been extremely heartened by the Occupy Wall Street movement—but we've also had to raise some comradely warnings about anti-Semitic tropes that have seeped into the rhetoric of some of the protesters and their supporters.

Xenophobes and Christian fundamentalists are behind the anti-sharia measures now passed or pending in more than a dozen states—but secular progressives resist efforts to impose sharia on the unwilling in the Muslim world. Can we avoid confusion?

Oklahoma's constitutional amendment that bars the state's judges form considering sharia law is heading to the 10th US Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver, after Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange ruled it unconstitutional, saying "the will of the ‘majority’ has on occasion conflicted with the constitutional rights of individuals." Oklahomans voted up the amendment last yea

Israeli pundit Caroline Glick, cited in the Oslo bomber's manifesto, rails that the struggle against "multiculturalism" (read: Islam) should not falter in the wake of the attacks—while more conspiranoids claim a Mossad "false flag" operation.

Jim Lobe on InterPress Service informs us that Israeli pundit Caroline Glick was among those cited in the

The Israeli troll-o-sphere is abuzz with ghastly cheerleading for the Oslo attacks, while the Jerusalem Post warns of the "the abject failure of multiculturalism." But will the Judeophobes also call out similar verbiage from Pat Buchanan?

The Israeli troll-o-sphere appears to be abuzz with ghastly cheerleading for the Oslo attacks. J.J.

Accused Oslo bomber Anders Behring Breivik in his manifesto demonizes the Muslims of ex-Yugoslavia as a jihadist menace—as do professional conspiranoids like Wayne Madsen who accuse him of being  a Mossad agent.

Media reports have noted that accused Oslo bomber Anders Behring Breivik indicated through his online spewings that he is a fan of professional IslamophobePam Geller, who led the protes

Europe's right-wing media voices all jumped to the al-Qaeda thesis in the Oslo terror attack—but it now emerges the perpetrator is a lone right-wing extremist who evidences the predictable Islamophobic rhetoric in his Internet footprint.

The blood was not even dry from the July 22 coordinated bomb blast and shooting rampage in Oslo that left at least 94 dead before Britain's The Telegraph was asking in a headline, "Oslo explosion: Is
