From Ian:

The Social Construction of Hatred
The social construction of hatred toward the Jewish people by the Islamic world and the western-left should, at this point in human history, be axiomatic.
In the Arab-Muslim world they scream bloody murder on a daily basis that the Jewish minority is evil and must be destroyed. Western “liberals” either do not care or believe that the Jews deserve whatever beating that we get for allegedly being mean to Palestinian-Arabs. Ayatollahs and imams throughout the Middle East shake their fists in the air and tell their people that the tiny Jewish minority are vile in the sight of Allah and that it is a spiritual blessing to murder Jews. In the mean time, western progressives tell one another that the Jews of the Middle East are racist, imperialistic, colonialist, apartheid, war-mongers and thereby justify an ancient Arab-Muslim culture of violence toward the Jewish people.
The Trial of Mahmoud Abbas: Fanning the Flames of Incitement
As such, an application of international law to Mahmoud Abbas’ statements and actions demonstrates a compelling case for prosecution. He has a clear record of incitement to genocide as defined under the Genocide Convention and its application to date. Furthermore, Abbas’ Palestinian Authority has repeatedly sought to dehumanize Israelis and Jews. An especially egregious example of PA-sanctioned incitement is its perpetuation of the “Holocaust myth,” which remains rampant in Palestinian society – particularly in the education system and media.
Until the international community decides to charge Mahmoud Abbas with incitement to violence and genocide, we can expect a few more streets and town squares in the Palestinian Authority to be named after terrorists; a few more youth events to be held in honor of terrorists; and a few more Palestinian textbooks to portray a world without Israel.
European Anti-Semitism and the Fear of Muslims
When European history teachers omit the Holocaust from their curriculum, they do not do this because they hate their Jewish students more than their Muslim students. They omit it because they are afraid of their Muslim students. They might also believe they do it to be "nice," but then how come this same "niceness" is not afforded to the Jews?
In the "Stockholm Syndrome," now seen, ironically, in Sweden, victims start bonding with their abusers in the wish that if they share the same values as their abusers, their abusers might stop abusing them. "We must be open and tolerant toward Islam and Muslims because when we become a minority, they will be so toward us." — Jens Orback, former Swedish government minister.
The ignorant Israel boycott advocates, in America too
Contrary to the expressed opinion of some BDS supporters there is nothing vague about academic freedom. It denotes a free exchange of ideas and opinions, an exchange in which the validity of those ideas can be examined and challenged, and which is not limited either internally in a particular country or externally. John Stuart Mill knew that free inquiry is the basis for acceptance or rejection of wrong or incorrect ideas and information.
Supporters of BDS have tried to qualify their position by suggesting that their call for action is against institutions not individuals. But this is a sleight of hand evasion of the truth.

MEMRI: Egyptian Journalist Amr Sombol: U.S. Foreign Policy and World's Oil Supply Controlled by Jews VIDEO
Interviewer: Okay. So what you want to show is that the April 6 movement is supported by, or in fact, founded by Jews.
Amr Sombol: Exactly.
Interviewer: By American Jews...
'Israelis Don't Believe in Two-State Solution'
In an exclusive Arutz Sheva interview, Middle East expert Dr. Mordechai Kedar, of Bar-Ilan University’s BESA Center (Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies), dismissed calls for the establishment of a Palestinian Authority state in Judea and Samaria, saying that the number of Israelis who still believe in the "Two-State Solution" can "fit in two telephone booths".
"And two years from now they will fit into a half of a telephone booth," he added dryly.
When asked why, Dr. Kedar responded that "Gaza changed everything."
Bennett: Leaving Gaza Cost 1,000 Times More than Staying
At an address to the Conference of Major Jewish Organizations today, Minister of Economy Naftali Bennett was asked about the economic costs of staying in Judea and Samaria. In an unequivocal response, he explained why withdrawing from the region would cost Israel far more than remaining.
"I'm a businessman! I can tell you the economic costs to Israel of leaving Gaza was 1,000 times the cost of staying in Gaza. The costs to the communities being struck by thousands of missiles, the costs of Iron Dome, the costs of the deaths many fold exceeds the costs of staying in Gaza,” he declared.

MKs Unite, Call on US to Release Jonathan Pollard
Twenty-eight years less one day have passed since US intelligence officer Jonathan Pollard was arrested by FBI agents outside the Israeli Embassy on Washington, DC, on suspicion that he had spied for Israel on the US. He has been in jail ever since.
On Wednesday, Knesset Members from across the political spectrum united in calling for his release.
Nasties on Video
At the Arc de Triomphe, with a big banner in English, the better, no doubt, to (try to) catch headlines, a bunch of French screamers reacts to the Hollande government's cordiality with Israel:
Another cacophony of hate can be heard in this video of nasties in New York, performing various antics as they protest a fundraiser for the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.
Dutch Catholic TV airs Jews-killed-Jesus video
A Dutch Catholic public broadcaster has apologized for and pulled off the air a video clip featuring a song which accuses Jews of plotting to kill Jesus.
The video, which was aired earlier this month at the end of a children’s program on the Rooms-Katholiek Kerkgenootschap, or Roman Catholic Church Association, television station, featured a song by Pearl Jozefzoon, about how Jews regarded Jesus. “Do not follow him. He is mad. Break him, break his heart. Kill him. Bury him with criticism, do not love him,” the lyrics said.
Georgetown Rescinds Invite to Egyptian Nazi
Jan is listed representing "Christians Against the Coup" in a promotional flier for the event posted by Georgetown Tuesday morning. He is omitted from an updated flier posted six hours later. In between the two, Jan's Nazi ideology was exposed in a Twitter post by Hudson Institute Fellow Samuel Tadros.
"It's remarkable to find such a guy," Tadros told the Beacon. "Just by inviting him that tells us something about the nature of the conference and those organizing it."
Norwegian prof boycotts Kristallnacht memorial
A Norwegian university distanced itself from a professor who said he opposed commemorating Nazi-era pogroms because it serves Israeli propaganda.
The views expressed last week by Trond Andresen, an assistant professor in the department of engineering cybernetics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, are “far from what we stand for as a university,” Jan Erik Kaaro, a university spokesperson, told JTA on Tuesday.
‘Norway unwilling to confront war crimes’
The government of Norway is unwilling to “confront the issue” of crimes allegedly committed by some of its citizens during World War II, said Efraim Zuroff, a Nazi hunter and the director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Jerusalem office.
Zuroff spoke with The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday after the cancellation of a planned trip to the Scandinavian nation in which he had hoped to speak with Justice and Public Security Minister Anders Anundsen.
Congressman presses Turkish FM on anti-Semitism
Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), a co-chairman of the Congressional caucus on Turkey, pressed the Turkish foreign minister on reports of anti-Semitism and human rights abuses in his country.
Cohen said he asked Ahmet Davutoglu, when the caucus met Monday with a Turkish delegation, about reports of a surge of anti-Semitism, and about the repression of dissent in Turkey.
Elderly Jewish Woman Punched in ‘Knockout’ Attack
A 78-year-old Jewish woman was punched in the face by a group of teenagers while walking in the Midwood section of Brooklyn this weekend, becoming the eighth victim of the so-called knockout attacks that have been occurring in New York City over the past few weeks.
At Microsoft 2.0, start-ups get top billing
The idea came from Israel, said Zack Weisfeld, a senior director of Microsoft Ventures, the start-up investment arm and sponsor of the MS accelerators. The Israeli accelerator in Herzliya set up just two years ago was the first of the dozen Microsoft Ventures Accelerators and the role model for them all.
“We were the first to run an accelerator of this kind for Microsoft,” Weisfeld said. “It was seen as an experiment by the company, but people inside the company believed in what we were trying to do.”
Keshet’s ‘Rising Star’ earns US deal
“Rising Star,” the Israeli singing competition that has been the darling of the international television market since its launch here in September, has landed its biggest international deal yet: a 10-episode order for US screens from major American network ABC.
The deal is the first to be inked by the newly-launched Keshet DCP, a partnership between Dick Clark Productions and Keshet International, home of “Homeland” and the global arm of Israeli media giant Keshet.
Dylan video coup for Israeli digital ad whiz
The first official music video for Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone” is making the rounds on the internet. And Dylan’s endorsement is only half the reason why.
The video, produced by media start-up Interlude, includes a novel interactive channel-tuning button, each channel mimicking a different cable channel or news program, featuring cameos by Drew Carey and a matzah-eating Danny Brown.
The video was filmed under creative directorship of 27-year old Vania Heymann, an Israeli graduate of the Bezalel Arts school.
Pillar of Defense: A Year Later IDF Soldier Reveals How Flow of Humanitarian Aid Was Maintained
Sgt. (Res.) Evan Pelz, an American who made aliyah to Israel, served as a lone soldier from 2011 to 2013, and now lives in Jerusalem and studies law at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In a guest post on the IDF blog on Wednesday, Sergeant (Res.) Pelz described his time in the Coordination and Liaison Administration for Gaza (CLA) unit that acts as a liaison between the IDF and the civilian population in the Gaza Strip.
