Manifesto of First Anti-Jewish Congress (Dresden, Sept 11, 1882)

As a result of this situation, intellectual slavery and moral cowardice vis-à-vis Jewry is one of the most characteristic features of our age. Aspiring young professionals are worried about their future; elderly men who have made a name for themselves are concerned about their past and their posthumous reputation. And in order to secure these things with the help of the Jewish press, they become trainbearers of Jewish power, they turn into traitors to their own nation and race and thus to their own blood relations

LAPD maul and brutally smash an independent photographer face first into the ground

Photojournalist Tyson Zoltan Heder, who was photographing the events of Occupy Los Angeles and the LAPD evicting the protesters, was beaten by the police and had his camera taken, and then he was detained and charged with "assault", and at the time of uploading this video he remains in police custody. Watch the video and see if you can see anyone doing any "assault" to anyone else. I'll give you a hint: Tyson isn't the perpetrator of any assault, he's the one who GETS assaulted.

Rabbi Timmerman on the "Holocaust" and Silent Jewry

Members of my extended family also were in such camps. I had a total of thirteen relatives on both sides of my family in prison camps. Of these, one died of a heart attack, eight of typhus and the rest were released at the end of the war...I find it very difficult to write this but in my fifteen years in dealing with actual survivors, I have never found a single case where any Jew was gassed in a Nazi camp.

The State of Israel has always been a Zionist state. It was born in violence and hatred. Jews, mostly from Poland, invaded the Palestine area, killing and maiming anyone who stood in their way

My Role in the Torture of Binyam Mohamed

Whenever I've complained about my country's torturings, renderings, detentions, etc., there's always been some smug bastard ready to respond that these measures are what guarantee smart-alecky writers like myself our freedom of speech. Well, we had a government so vicious and impenetrably stupid that it managed to take my freedom of speech and turn it into someone else's living hell.

The Unsinkable Helen Thomas

I no more believe that Helen Thomas is an anti-Semite than I believe in Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny. But the issue before you this week has nothing to do with anti-Semitism...The only issue on your table today is whether SPJ stands for the unabridged right of any journalist - and American - to speak his or her opinion, on any subject, without fear of punishment or retribution from any government, individual, private or professional organization.
