Chaolin: A Senseless Death

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/chaolin-a-senseless-death/

French version follows the English. The life of Chaolin Zhang, an unassuming 49 year-old dressmaker and father of two, was stomped out on a sidewalk in Aubervilliers on the 12th of August, for no reason. One assault among so many, nothing out of the ordinary for the thugs that have been targeting Chinese people in the […]

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/butchering-history-but-not-the-jews-the-case-of-post-revolutionary-ukraine/

“Glory to the nation! Death to the enemies!” This chant was heard across Kiev’s central Maidan Square in late 2013 as thousands of Ukrainians massed in protest against the corruption and brutality Viktor Yanukovych, their pro-Russian President. It was a chilling slogan, bearing harsh connotations for those who understood its identification with the Ukrainian nationalist […]

The day before his suicide Adolf Hitler issued a plea to humanity to continue to “resist mercilessly the poisoner of all nations, international Jewry.”[1] Those who have most fervently heeded that call are not the neo-Nazis but the Islamic Jihadists. The association between National Socialism and Islamic Jihadism goes back to Hasan al-Banna’s founding of […]

Qu’est-ce qu’une caricature antisémite ? Essai d’explication historique et politique

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/quest-ce-quune-caricature-antisemite-essai-dexplication-historique-et-politique/

I. Caricature, antisémitisme, antisionisme: de quoi parle-t-on ? La caricature n’est pas une source documentaire parmi d’autres : dans un monde marqué avant tout par l’image, la caricature est devenue un des moyens de communication les plus populaires et les plus efficaces. Aujourd’hui comme hier, l’opinion publique est davantage conditionnée par l’image -de la caricature à la […]

Antisemitism, Anti-Zionism, Jewish students and failed policies

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/antisemitism-anti-zionism-jewish-students-and-failed-policies/

A new article at The Washington Post by Molly Harris claims that liberal Jewish students are being “actively excluded” from social justice organizations.  Jewish college students will find that those active in BDS are also active in other left-wing groups and “as a Zionist this can be extremely disheartening.”  Her article goes to the heart […]

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/resentment-anxiety-and-careerism-accounting-for-antisemitism-in-the-academy-and-among-the-intelligentsia/

Recently I’ve been professionally involved in surveys of two very different Jewish populations – one of Jewish university students on 55 American campuses and the other of Jewish leaders in 28 European countries. Yet a majority of respondents in both surveys reported great concern about antisemitism. The 2013 Pew Survey revealed that older American Jews […]

The Terror Attack at the Pulse Club in Orlando

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/the-terror-attack-at-the-pulse-club-in-orlando/

Too many similarities and some differences mark the terror attack in Tel Aviv on June 8 and the terror attack in Orlando on June 12. In Tel Aviv, two cousins inspired by hateful incitement blended into the crowd with a mission to kill as many civilians as possible. They used improvised weapons (Carl Gustav) and […]
