It was a headline to have every right-thinking, Brexit-backing reader spluttering over their breakfast: “Man who ‘broke the Bank of England’ backing secret plot to thwart Brexit”.

Not only was the “billionaire financier” George Soros

backing a campaign to overturn Brexit, he was also seeking to undermine the democratically-elected Prime Minister of Great Britain, Theresa May.

The largest newspaper in Puerto Rico has apologized for running an opinion column that said Jewish people control the U.S. Congress and want to punish storm-ravaged Puerto Rico for its debt because they care so much about money.

In the Spanish op-ed last week from  El Nuevo Dia, whose title translates to  “What Does ‘The Jew’ Want with the Colony?,” columnist Wilda Rodriguez

justified her assertion that Jews run the government by pointing to an alleged Israeli article published in Hebrew 20 years ago that recognized Jewish power in Washington. “For Israelis,” she wrote, “recognizing Jewish power over the United States is no offense. It is the victory of their diaspora.”

She said the “Jewish itinerary is so loaded with wars and profits that they rarely think about Puerto.”

France’s most famed publishing house has bowed to pressure and suspended plans to reissue a collection of violently antisemitic pamphlets by novelist Louis-Ferdinand Céline.

Gallimard sparked an outcry last week when it revealed it intended to publish a 1,000-page compendium of the controversial writer’s essays from the late 1930s.

The French lawyer and Nazi-hunter Serge Klarsfeld threatened legal action to stop them, saying that Céline had “influenced a whole generation of collaborationists who sent French Jews to their deaths”.

Singer Lorde has been called a “bigot” after pulling out of a planned concert in Israel.

In a full-page advertisement, taken out in the Washington Post by rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s pro-Israel organsiation This World: The Values Network, Lorde, 21, is described as taking part in “a global anti-semitic boycott of Israel”.

A pull quote in the paid-for text reads “21 is young to become a bigot”, while the headline and longer article accuse the New Zealand singer of being a hypocrite for cancelling her planned Tel Aviv concert while still performing in Russia.

 

“While Lorde claims to be concerned with human rights, she hypocritically chose to proceed with her two concerts in Putin’s Russia, despite his support for [Syrian president] Assad’s genocidal regime,” the text states..

“Let’s boycott the boycotters and tell Lorde and her fellow bigots that Jew-hatred has no place in the twenty-first century.”

It’s the very definition of Orwellian: a panel titled “Anti-Semitism and the Struggle for Justice” that’s actually meant to promote Israel-bashing.

Co-sponsored by The New School’s Creative Publishing and Critical Journalism program, the Nov. 28 event bills itself as “a discussion on how to combat anti-Semitism.” But it quickly reveals its true goal.

“When anti-Semitism is redefined as criticism of Israel,” reads the description, “critics of Israeli policy become accused and targeted more than the growing far-right.”

The editor of the Gay Times has been fired just weeks after taking up the role after anti-Semitic and misogynistic tweets were uncovered.

Josh Rivers sent a series of tweets between 2010 and 2015 which made offensive comments about women, Jewish people, Chinese people, lesbians, transgender people, and people he thought were overweight or ugly.

The magazine said that all of his articles have now been removed from the website and he has been dismissed from his post.

Among the offensive messages was one which said an actor cast as a Jewish person had a “f——- ridiculously larger honker of a nose” and another which tweeted approvingly a quote from US animation Family Guy:  “Jews are gross. It’s the only religion with ‘ew’ in it.”
