Examples of HuffPost ignoring hate crimes against people it considers to be Worthless


Introduction

For the purposes of this document, we define “ignore” as:

(1) Completely ignoring these hate crimes, as in, never publishing a single item about them

(2) Ignoring them while they were being reported in other media, then giving them only brief, downplayed, sanitized* coverage on the front page, after which they were removed

* “Sanitized,” meaning, never posting human faces associated with the story, or assigning a reporter to tell the “human side” of the story, as it almost invariably does with allegations of hate incidents against Muslims. Downplayed, meaning, these stories were buried beneath items expressing sympathy for sad celebrities, farm animals, etc.  Details below.

HuffPost’s almost-complete blackout of hate crimes against Jews is particularly notable given the following facts:

  • HuffPost rushes to post on its front page articles regarding seemingly every allegation of a hate crime or incident against Muslims, where they often remain for two, three or more days in a row.  HuffPost even set up an entire sub-site, “Islamophobia,” to house these incidents — yet created no similar sub-site to track hate incidents against Jews, who are far more likely to be victims of hate crimes than Muslims in America (details below).
  • Often, HuffPost assigns reporters to write original stories about these incidents, which it supplements with pictures of the victims — in contrast to its standard practice of only posting wire service copy of hate crimes against Jews, which almost invariably never contain the human face(s) of the victims(s).
  • HuffPost used active and passive means to help legitimize numerous fake hate crimes against Muslims, a number of which went viral, globally.  Then, when the fact that they were hoaxes became inescapable, it quietly removed these stories from its front page, but did not post new stories to notify its readers that they had been duped.
  • HuffPost knows (or should know) that while Jews and Muslims have similar population sizes in America, Jews are 4-6 times more likely to be victims of (actual) hate crimes than Muslims.

It was only after November 2016 that HuffPost began paying some occasional attention to hate crimes against Jews — while implicitly or explicitly attributing them to Trump supporters.  It did this despite the fact that:

  • The vast majority of hate crimes against Jews in the world, and in America, are being perpetrated by radical Islamists and radical leftists — who, together, comprise what is referred to as the “leftist-Islamist convergence.”

CANADA

Note: We ordinarily wouldn’t include anti-Semitic hate incidents that occurred in Canada.  But HuffPost set a precedent on March 1, 2017, when it gave front-page coverage to an alleged bomb threat in Montreal against Muslim university students (then removed the post when it was discovered, hours later, to be another fake anti-Muslim hate crime); details here.

ADDENDUM: Other anti-Semitic hate incidents within or related to North America, including items that don’t rise to the level of hate crimes, but clearly contribute to the climate of incitement and violence


(1) January 2016, Hartford, CT: 35 headstones were vandalized at historic Jewish cemeteries, in two incidents in the same week

Vandals Strike Twice At Historic Jewish Cemetery, by Vinny Vella, Hartford Courant (CT), January 28, 2016. Excerpt:

Leonard J. Holtz was discussing the recent rash of vandalism in Jewish cemeteries Thursday when he stumbled upon a fresh example.  Holtz, president of Congregation Ados Israel, discovered 15 monuments that had recently been knocked down in the congregation’s plot at Zion Hill Cemetery as he spoke about a similar incident nearby. […]

His frustration was palpable Thursday — the Holtz men have cared for those graves since his great-grandfather Herman came to Hartford after the Civil War. One of the damaged headstones bore a date from the late 19th century. […]

There have been two this week alone: Holtz surveyed his plot’s damage the day after 20 headstones were found tipped over at Dreyfus Lodge, another plot in Zion Hill.

“There are random stones turned over in the rest of cemetery, but none that have the scope of these,” said Hartford police Deputy Chief Brian Foley. “When you have 20 in a day in a specific area, that tends to ring of a targeted event.”

(2) January 2016, Ft. Wayne, IN: 55 headstones in Jewish cemetery vandalized

Sometime over the weekend of January 30-31, 2016, vandals struck a historic Jewish cemetery in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, knocking over 55 gravestones.  From the local newspaper, the News-Sentinel:

Fort Wayne Jewish Cemetery vandalized, by Ellie Bogue, The News-Sentinel (Ft. Wayne, IN), February 2, 2016. Excerpt:

Looking on Monday afternoon at the 55 gravestones knocked over, Dan Zweig, Fort Wayne Jewish Cemetery Association president, said it must have taken at least three people to topple each granite headstone.

Standing among the fallen stones in the 6400 block of Decatur Road, Zweig could only wonder why someone would do this. The cemetery is surrounded by a high fence, and the gate is kept locked at all times between visits from the grounds people or mourners for burials.

Zweig said the cemetery has never had anything like this happen before. His grandfather Sam Zweig was one of four founders of the cemetery.

(3) February 2016, Crown Heights, NY: Rabbinical student stabbed in the back in unprovoked attack; police believe it was an anti-Semitic hate crime

Jewish man seriously wounded in New York stabbing; Footage shows attacker fleeing after stabbing yeshiva student in the back in Crown Heights; police believe it was a hate crime, by Ari Soffer, Israel National News, February 10, 2016. Excerpt:

A Jewish man was stabbed in the back in an apparently unprovoked attack in New York’s Crown Heights neighborhood on Wednesday morning. The victim is in his 30s, and suffered from stab wounds to his upper back.

The attack occurred at a check cashing center at Kingston Ave and Empire Boulevard, according to the JP Updates site. The New York Police Department say they are searching for a black male who fled the scene immediately after the attack. Investigators now believe the incident was a hate crime.

(4) April 2016, Cedar Grove, WI: Jewish cemetery struck with two waves of vandalism

From the Cedar Grove, WI Fox News affiliate:

“This is deliberate:” Cedar Grove Cemetery caretakers devastated after rash of vandalism, by Julie Collins, Fox6Now.com (Cedar Grove, WI), April 14, 2016. Excerpt:

A place of peace and quiet in Cedar Grove was vandalized, and police need your help finding the person(s) responsible.  “It hasn’t been a good week,” said Herb Inselmen, caretaker at the Cedar Grove Cemetery.

A little more than a week ago, a fence was torn apart at the Cedar Grove Cemetery.  “They took one of the rails and stuck it into a gravesite,” said Inselmen. […]

The vandalism didn’t stop there. On Saturday night, April 9th, more damage was done. Nearly 40 headstones were pushed over — broken and dismantled.  “This is deliberate,” said Inselmen.

(5) May 2016, Irvine, CA: Female Jewish student at the University of California – Irvine was chased out of a school-sanctioned event, and terrorized, by an anti-Israel mob

Jewish woman forced to hide from anti-Israel activists at UC-Irvine; Pro-Palestine student group dubbed violent protests a ‘success,’ justified by presence of police and IDF soldiers, by Shani Shahmoon, The Observer, May 20, 2016. Excerpt

An event hosted by a pro-Israel student group ended abruptly Wednesday night as police were called to protect attendees from an angry mob that had gathered. One student who never made it inside the venue called 9-1-1 as she hid in fear from anti-Israel activists who chased her into a building on the University of California-Irvine campus.

Sophomore Eliana Kopley had just left a Holocaust-related event when she was walking toward the facility featuring a screening of “Beneath the Helmet,” a documentary about the Israel Defense Forces. As she arrived at the event hosted by Students Supporting Israel, Ms. Kopley was met by an angry crowd pounding on the doors and windows—engaged in violent chants targeting the Jewish state. “I was terrified. There is no other word to describe how I felt,” Ms. Kopley told the Haym Salomon Center.

(6) June 2016, Brooklyn, NY: Jewish woman and child were attacked with rocks by black anti-Semites

Jewish mother, child attacked by stone-throwers – in Brooklyn; Teens hurl stones, anti-Semitic curses at Jewish woman and her child driving through Brooklyn, by David Rosenberg, Israel National News, June 29, 2016. Excerpt:

An Orthodox Jewish woman and her six-year old child were attacked by stone-throwers in Brooklyn Tuesday afternoon, narrowly escaping injury. The incident took place on Nostrand Avenue near Avenue J at approximately 5:00 p.m.

Witnesses say two African American teenagers threw stones at a vehicle driven by an Orthodox Jewish woman while yelling anti-Semitic slurs. One of the vehicle’s windows was smashed, covering the woman’s small child with glass. However, no injuries were reported. The two assailants reportedly fled the scene after the attack. Local authorities were quickly called to the scene. New York police found security camera footage showing at least one of the attackers fleeing.

(7) November 20, Silver Spring, MD: Jewish Trump supporter’s home vandalized with swastika

And according to the homeowner, Thomas Roszkowski, this was the latest in a string of vandalism that occurred at his home since he began displaying pro-Trump signs in his yard.

Police investigate swastika vandalism at Silver Spring Trump supporter’s home, by Jack Pointer, WTOP.com (Washington, DC), November 21, 2016. Excerpt:

WASHINGTON — A supporter of President-elect Donald Trump found a swastika spray-painted on the front door of his Montgomery County, Maryland, home early Sunday morning and now police are investigating it as a possible case of “hate-biased” vandalism.

Thomas Roszkowski of the Four Corners area of Silver Spring, also reported to police an American flag that had been hanging from a tree in yard, had also been stolen. Roszkowski said he thinks the vandalism is connected to previous incidents, including the theft of a “Trump/Pence” election sign from his front yard late last month.

“First they stole my yard sign, then I got a bigger sign,” said the Vietnam veteran, 72.

(8) December 2016: Santa Monica synagogue vandalized, smeared with feces, on first night of Hannukah

From the local ABC-TV affiliate:

Santa Monica Synagogue Vandalized During Hanukkah, Feces Smeared on Window Near Menorah Display, by KTLA-5 (Los Angeles), December 25, 2016.

When Rabbi Boruch Rabinowitz arrived at his Santa Monica synagogue on the second day of Hanukkah, he made an unpleasant discovery.

The front window was smeared with feces and rice, in close proximity to a menorah display.

The vandalism, which occurred Saturday night or Sunday morning, did not include any anti-Semitic messages. But officials at the Living Torah Center Chabad on Wilshire Boulevard suspect the building was targeted for religious reasons.

“This seems kind of intentional,” Assistant Rabbi Dovid Tenenbaum said on Sunday morning. “With a religious artifact in the window, we have to assume so.”

(9) January 2017, Scottsburg, IN: Jewish grave spray-painted with “F*CKING JEW”; radical leftists arrested

On January 2, 2017, Jarin Gladstein posted this photo, of his grandparents’ grave in Indiana defaced with “FUCKING JEW,” with the comment:

I’ll pay cash to the person that comes to me with information on who did this to my grandparents headstone!!!!

On January 3, local police arrested and charged three persons with this crime:

Arrests made in anti-Semitic gravestone vandalism in Scottsburg; Police asking for possible leads, by Elizabeth Beilman, News and Tribune (Jeffersonville, IN), January 4, 2017. Excerpt:

Scottsburg police have arrested three people, including a juvenile, in connection with anti-Semitic vandalism on a gravestone in Scottsburg Cemetery. Scottsburg resident Jarin Gladstein told police Monday that his grandparents’ gravestone at the cemetery in Beechwood Park was tagged with graffiti. Police then found two other headstones also vandalized with white spray paint.

Gladstein said he felt “livid, aggravated and disgusted” when he discovered the vandalism. “There are many things that run through your head when you see it,” he said.

Acting on an anonymous tip, Scottsburg police Tuesday arrested Angeliquca Tompkins, 19, and Matthew Terry, 20, both of Salem, on charges of criminal mischief and criminal trespassing.

A casual perusal of Tompkins’ Facebook profile indicates that she is a virulent opponent of Trump, hates Christianity, and leans hard-left. Perhaps this is why HuffPost chose to completely ignore this crime.

(10) January 2017, Cincinatti, OH: Jewish university vandalized with swastika

On January 2, 2017, the main sign outside of the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnatti, OH, was vandalized with a swastika:

Jewish College Sign Defaced, by Tana Weingartner, WVXU.org (Cincinnatti, OH), January 3, 2017. Excerpt:

Cincinnati police are looking into an incident involving a hate symbol painted on a sign at a local Jewish seminary. Authorities are investigating who spray painted a swastika on a sign at Hebrew Union College. Associate Dean Rabbi Ken Kanter calls the vandalism disturbing, but also offers some perspective.

“I think the placing of a swastika on a street sign, when we compare the events going on around the world, makes our little sign quite a minor nuisance rather than comparing it to events that have gone on all around our country and certainly around the world,” says Kanter. He says police were notified and responded right away. The image was quickly removed.

(11) January 2017, Stanford, CA: Ten instances of swastika graffiti at Stanford University, at least one accompanied with “No Jews allowed”

Between January 3-6, 2017, the San Jose Mercury News and The Algemeiner, America’s largest online Jewish newspaper, reported nearly a dozen incidents of swastika graffiti near Stanford University campus.

‘No Jews Allowed’ Accompanies Swastika-Like Symbols Found in Stanford Campus Area, by Lea Speyer, The Algemeiner, January 6, 2017. Excerpt:

Swastika-like symbols were discovered at five separate locations on the Stanford University campus, San Francisco news website The Mercury News reported.

According to the report, graffiti was part of a spate of a total of 10 cases of antisemitic vandalism in the vicinity of the school, including in residential areas. Police concluded that though the symbols were drawn incorrectly — with the lines turning in the wrong direction — they were intended to mimic the Nazi insignia, because one of them was accompanied by the words: “No Jews allowed.”

(12) January 2017, London, U.S: Dozens of British, U.S. Jewish community centers evacuated due to bomb threats

At approximately 12:30pm* on January 9, 2017, the Jewish Press broke the story that bomb threats had been phoned in to numerous Jewish community centers in the Eastern U.S. and England. Within several hours, additional reports from NBC, CBS and other news bureaus reported that similar threats were phoned into Jewish schools and other facilities across the U.S.
(*We say “approximately 12:30pm because, as shown in this screencap, taken at 5:30pm, Google indicated that the Jewish Press article was published 5 hours earlier).

Jewish community centers in a widespread number of American states were evacuated due to bomb threats on Monday morning, while across the ocean, the same phenomenon was taking place in London, England as well.

Jewish schools across the United Kingdom were placed on alert after bomb threats were called into metro London Jewish schools in Roehampton, Ilford and Brent on Monday morning. The schools were “warned” that explosive devices had been planted on the premises. Thorough searches were conducted at all three sites and other schools were placed on precautionary lock-downs until the “all clear” was received.

Bomb threats were also called in to a few non-Jewish schools as well, according to the British Jewish Chronicle news site.

At 1:18pm, NBC New York published this report, which it updated at 5:30pm with this video:

Yet as shown in this screencap (and via the Internet Archive @ 7:25pm), seven hours later, at 7:30pm, HuffPost had still not published a single article about this growing wave of anti-Semitic threats on its front page (see search for “Jewish” at lower left):

As of 12:10am on January 10, HuffPost had still not published anything regarding these threats:

Finally, sometime around 9:25am* on January 10, HuffPost published this near the bottom of its front page, with a link to an obscure short URL (see lower left; http://pubx.co/ROWXUq):

* We say “sometime around 9:25am” because HuffPost did not even publish a story about this incident; the link leads directly to a New York Times article:

Finally, at 4:48pm on January 10 — 28 hours after this story broke — HuffPost published its first and only original story about these threats on its front page. And as you can see, it positioned the story mid-way down the page:

More Than A Dozen Jewish Centers Hit With Anonymous Bomb Threats, by Carol Kuruvilla, Huffington Post, January 10, 2017.

We know that the story was published at 4:48pm because HuffPost time-stamps its original articles:

Bottom line: In the wake of this coordinated, international conspiracy of threats against Jewish institutions, HuffPost didn’t even assign one of its hundreds of “reporters” to write even one paragraph about this hate crime until 24 hours after news broke about it.

Contrast this to the dedicated “journalistic” resources HuffPost devoted to evoking timely sympathy regarding other “news” stories in the past, which it positioned on its front page, including:

Staten Island JCC Receives Bomb Threat, Defaced With Swastika, by Daniel J. Solomon, The Forward, January 11, 2017. Excerpt:

New York’s hate crime wave made land on Staten Island Wednesday, after a swastika and bomb threat was found at a Jewish Community Center in the borough. Officials at the center, located in a park filled stretch of Staten Island, reported the incident on Wednesday morning to the New York City police department, which discovered no bomb on the site. Authorities are investigating the incident as a hate crime.

(14) January 2017; Seven U.S. states: Third wave of bomb threats against Jewish Community Centers in last month

At approximately 12:30pm on January 31, 2017, the Associated Press (AP), the Jerusalem Post and Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) reported that bomb threats had been phoned in to at least eleven Jewish facilities in seven U.S. states in recent hours, the latest in a month-long wave of such threats. NBC New York was the first national news outlet to cover it, at 12:47 PM:

Threats Called In at JCCs in at Least 7 US States, NBC4 New York (AP), January 31, 2017, 12:47pm EST.

Threats against Jewish community centers were reported in at least seven states Tuesday, forcing evacuations and prompting the FBI to launch an investigation into possible civil rights violations. It’s the latest in a series of threats, including bomb threats, at the centers in the last few weeks.

The Jewish Community Center Apachi Day Camp in Lake Zurich, Illinois, was evacuated Tuesday morning after a bomb threat was phoned into the campus, according to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, NBC Chicago reported. The threat remains under investigation.

In an earlier incident, the Sidney Albert Albany Jewish Community Center in Albany, New York, was evacuated Tuesday morning after receiving a bomb threat, the second in the last two weeks, the Albany Times Union reported.

One minute later, at 12:48pm, the JTA reported that the number of bomb threats had grown to seventeen.

UPDATE: On February 1, the Times of Israel published a recording of one of the threats:

It’s a C-4 bomb with a lot of shrapnel, surrounded by a bag (inaudible). In a short time, a large number of Jews are going to be slaughtered. Their heads are going to be blown off from the shrapnel. There’s a lot of shrapnel. There’s going to be a bloodbath that’s going to take place in a short time. I think I told you enough. I must go.

(15) January 2017, Stanford, CA: Swastika vandalism at Stanford University, for the second time in one month

Swastikas found at Stanford University for second time in a month; No suspects yet named after anti-Semitic graffiti discovered on university graduate housing buildings, by the Times of Israel (via JTA), January 30, 2017. Excerpt

Swastikas were discovered last weekend at Stanford University for the second time in less than a month. “Several” swastikas were found on the buildings of the university graduate housing, known as Escondido Village, the Stanford Daily reported.

The Stanford University Department of Public Safety has been working on the case in cooperation with the Palo Alto police but has not yet named any suspects, the student daily newspaper reported.

At the end of December, during the university’s winter break, swastikas with inverted arms were drawn on campus buildings and signs and on buildings in Palo Alto, where the university is located, accompanied by phrases such as “No Jews allowed,” the Mercury News reported earlier this month.

(16) February 2017, Manhattan, NY: Man shoved Jewish woman, screamed “Dirty Jew!” at her, and praised Hitler

Anti-Semitic man screams pro-Hitler message, calls woman ‘dirty Jew’ on C train, by Rocco Parascandola, NY Daily News, February 2, 2017. Excerpt:

A Jewish woman was mocked and shoved on a Manhattan train by a raging anti-Semite with a German accent, police sources said Thursday. “Hail the Hitler Youth!” the suspect ranted, reading aloud from an anti-Semitic pamphlet aboard the C train as soon as he got on at the W. 23rd St. station about 8:30 p.m. Monday, sources said.

The suspect then got into the 25-year-old victim’s face, called her “Dirty Jew,” and shoved her. She managed to grab a pole as she fell onto a seat. […]

In an apparently unrelated incident, a swastika was found etched in an R train window at the Jay St. station Wednesday morning.

(18) February 2017, Chicago, IL: Famed Loop Synagogue defaced with swastikas, and front window smashed

The Chicago Loop Synagogue, founded in 1929, is famous for its architecture, stained glass windows, and its long service to the downtown Chicago Jews, especially professionals.

So when a vandal was caught on video, late at night on February 3, 2017, smashing the front window and posting swastikas, it garnered significant news and blog coverage, with 80,000 references to it via a Google search, by the morning of February 6, 2017.

Chicago Loop Synagogue vandalized with swastikas, by Fox32Chicago.com (via Sun Times Media Wire), February 4, 2017. Excerpt:

A hate crime investigation is underway after the front window of the Chicago Loop Synagogue was smashed by one or more vandals who affixed swastikas to its front entrance early Saturday. Officers responded at 12:20 a.m. to a call of “criminal damage in progress” at the temple at 16 S. Clark St., according to Chicago Police.

A window had been broken and several “derogatory stickers” were placed on the front door, police said. Evidence technicians could be seen removing two swastikas from the glass. No one was in custody as Area Central detectives investigated the vandalism as a hate crime.

Addendum: On February 6, 2017, the Chicago Tribune announced that it was offering a $3,000 reward for information on the man caught on video perpetrating the hate crime.

From the Algemeiner, America’s most widely-read online Jewish newspaper:

‘Stuff Jews in the Oven’ Among Antisemitic Social Media Posts Flooding Pages of University of Texas-Arlington Students, Covert Campus Watchdog Finds, by Lea Speyer, The Algemeiner, February 15, 2017.  Excerpt:

“Jews only live once” and “stuff Jews in the oven” are among the offensive comments flooding the social media pages of current and former students at the University of Texas, Arlington (UTA), a dossier recently released by a covert campus watchdog group revealed.

According to the document, compiled by Canary Mission – which anonymously monitors anti-American, anti-Israel and antisemitic activity on US college campuses — 24 UTA students and graduates have likened Israel to Nazi Germany, called for violence against Jews and both denied and championed the Holocaust in Facebook and Twitter posts.

The identified perpetrators, from SJP and MSA.

The posts all come from members of the school’s chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and Muslim Student Association (MSA).

(20) February 2017, Seattle, WA: Jewish student activists were illegitimately harassed by University of Washington administrators, and their pro-Israel display was vandalized

On February 14, 2017, Jewish students at the University of Washington set up a pro-Israel display in the common area that the administration had approved for such activity.  Anti-Israel activists then set up a large “Israel Apartheid Wall” nearby, and began complaining to UW administrators that the pro-Israel display was too close to them, and was offensive.  UW officials order the Jewish students to remove their display, but they refused, citing First Amendment protections.

Three of the Jewish students behind the display, Adam Rozen-Wheeler, Uri Zvi and Jessica Schwartz, were interviewed about this incident — and the vandalism of one of their signs — by the popular Israelly Cool blog:

Jewish Students At UW Harrassed, Israel Display Vandalized, by Zion Mike, Israelly Cool, February 19, 2017. Excerpt:

Adam Rozen-Wheeler and Jessica Schwartz, at the display they set up at the University of Washington

“It was sort of a microcosm of the Arab-Israeli conflict” Rozen-Wheeler told me. “After we set up, an anti-Israel student told the UW Office of Student Activities that we were too close to SUPER-UW’s display”. Rozen-Wheeler was struck by the absurdity of the demand considering that SUPER-UW set up on Red Square well after CHAI-UW and deliberately chose to assemble their anti-Israel display near the pro-Israel table.

Recalled UW bio-engineering student Uri Zvi, “the pro-Palestinian group, with their offensive borderline antisemitic display, arrived after we did. They saw where we were located, which was far enough from their original location, but decided to bring their “wall” about 20 meters away from us and then complained that we were too close.” […]

“[T]hey [the anti-Israel group] complained to the university that our display is offensive and “triggers” them”. Noted Zvi, “our display was all about peace and coexistence, that the anti-Israel group found it offensive is a real self-indictment against them”.  Soon after, a representative of the UW Student Activities Office arrived and told the Jewish students to pack up and move. They said that they had been inundated with dozens of complaints from SUPER-UW [the anti-Israel group] students and their allies.

The pro-Israel students refused to budge. Said Zvi, “the complaints were just because we are Jews that promote peace and oppose discrimination and hating narratives. “We firmly declined to take down or move our Israel display” said Rozen-Wheeler. “We told the staff from the Student Activities Office that “in America we have a right to free speech”. Added Zvi,”we were not going to be silenced by racists, especially when our message is coexistence, peace, facts, and chocolates.” The Office of Student Activities backed down.

The message of coexistence unfortunately was not absorbed by all. Late Friday morning the Israel education display was vandalized. According to UW student Jessica Schwartz who was manning the table at the time, “someone in a green hoodie and black backpack came past us and tore down our Pro-Israel, Pro-Palestine Pro-Peace poster and ran away”.

Lamented Schwartz “We have been tabling all week to promote dialogue, negotiations, and cooperation as the best path toward a peaceful solution to the Israeli Palestinian conflict. This man did not stop to talk to us and ask us what we were doing or what we believed in. He just came behind us, said “F*** you guys” and tore down our sign. Someone ran after the guy and brought back our sign.”

A February 20, 2017 search at HuffPost using the string “Jewish students University of Washington pro-Israel display” proved that it had reported nothing yet about this story.  Two things, however, are notable about this search page:

  • HuffPost did publish a recent story about an allegation of similar official discrimination against a Muslim student, at George Washington University.
  • HuffPost openly asks readers to submit tips, which include matters such as this.  One of the methods it indicates is to send tips to scoops@huffingtonpost.com.

(22) February 2017, Arlington, TX: Radical Islamist was fired from preschool teaching position after being discovered for explicit Tweets asking friend to murder Jews, and saying not enough Jews died in the Holocaust

On February 21, 2017, the Algemeiner, the most-read Jewish online newspaper in America, reported that a Muslim Arlington, TX preschool teacher had been removed from the classroom after a series of anti-Semitic Tweets she posted were discovered:

Texas Pre-School Teacher Removed From Classroom After Twitter Calls to ‘Kill Some Jews’ Come to Light, by Lea Speyer, The Algemieiner, February 21, 2017. Excerpt:

A pre-school teacher in Texas has been suspended from the classroom pending an investigation into her encouraging social media followers to “kill some Jews,” The Algemeiner has learned.

Nancy Salem, who teaches at The Children’s Courtyard in Arlington, as The Algemeiner first reported, was among 24 anti-Israel activists exposed last week by covert campus watchdog group Canary Mission for expressing racist and violent thoughts online.

Salem — an activist associated with the University of Texas at Arlington chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine and a supporter of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement — used her now-disabled Twitter account to post such remarks as: “How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough…HAHAHAHA.”

One day later (February 22), the story broke into Texas media:

Pre-School Teacher Fired After Anti-Semitic Tweets, by Jack Fink, CBS11.com (Dallas, TX), February 22, 2017. Excerpt:

ARLINGTON (CBS11) – An Arlington pre-school teacher is out of a job after she was accused of posting anti-Semitic remarks on social media.  The pre-school, The Children’s Courtyard, says it fired teacher Nancy Salem after thoroughly investigating her tweets.

Among those identified by the watchdog group, Canary Mission, one in which she said, “Gassed a Jew. I’m sweating. Heil.”

In another, she asked, ‘How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough, hahaha.”

A third, “Kiss the Palestine ground for me and kill some Jews.”

(23) February 2017, Minneapolis, MN: Student at University of Minnesota finds sign in room, labeled “Nazis rule,” with drawing of Jews being marched into gas chambers

A student at the University of Minnesota reported finding this drawing upon returning to his locked dorm room:

From the Algemeiner, on February 10, 2017:

Image of Jews Being Marched Into Nazi Gas Chambers Scrawled in Minnesota Student’s Room Example of ‘Skyrocketing’ Campus Antisemitism, School’s Chabad Rabbi Says, by Rachel Frommer, The Algemeiner, February 10, 2017. Excerpt:

A rabbi at the University of Minnesota (UMN) told The Algemeiner on Thursday that he was disheartened but not surprised by the “disgusting” image of a Nazi gas chamber and crematorium scrawled on a Jewish student’s whiteboard, since “though such incidents used to be very rare, antisemitism on campus has been skyrocketing of late.”

Rabbi Yitzi Steiner, co-director of the Rohr Center for Jewish Student Life — the school’s Chabad house — was responding to the crude drawing of Jews being marched into Hitler’s ovens, over which smoke is seen billowing, left by someone who had broken in to the student’s locked dorm room.

“The fact that this sort of hatred exists on our campus is unacceptable, and is obviously a troubling issue that threatens the open dialogue and diversity that makes UMN such a special campus,” Steiner wrote on Facebook, telling The Algemeiner that he plans to discuss Thursday’s incident at Chabad’s Shabbat dinner, to which he has invited the president of the university.

Hate graffiti was found scrawled on a bridge in a park in Essex County, New Jersey, and the search is under way for the vandals who did it.

The South Orange community came together Tuesday evening to erase the hate. With candles and messages of peace, people gathered tonight on a bridge at South Mountain Reservation where just hours earlier, the walls were covered with messages of hate — several spray painted swastikas and words of intolerance.

“We’re appalled and we don’t stand for hate,” South Orange resident Kathy Greenstone told CBS2’s Tracee Carrasco. “We come together and we speak up about it.”

“We can’t let this become the normal,” Maplewood resident Nate Fisher added.

(28) February 2017, Lakeville, MN: A high school was defaced with a swastika, racist and pro-KKK graffiti; Leftist celebrities blamed it on Trump supporters; Administrators soon determined it was done by a “non-Caucasian student”

On February 27, 2017, news broke that Lakeville South High School in Lakeview, Minnesota had been vandalized a swastika, racist and pro-KKK graffiti.  Notorious leftist celebrities Shaun King and Sarah Silverman publicized the news, the latter of whom blamed it on Trump supporters.  Soon after, however, the school issued a press release that it had determined that “a non-Caucasian student” was the perpetrator.  As reported by the Daily Wire:

Remember This Swastika? It Didn’t Come From A White Supremacist, by Hank Berrien, The Daily Wire, March 2, 2017. Excerpt:

For the knee-jerk leftists (we won’t mention names such as Shaun King and Sarah Silverman) who immediately reacted to the discovery of a swastika on a bathroom stall in a Minnesota high school by insinuating white supremacists were at work again, or even as a result of the election of Donald Trump, not so fast.

The graffiti read, “Hail the Klu (sic) Klux Klan,” in addition to a racial slur containing the n-word next to two Nazi swastikas.  That prompted King to tweet:

Silverman chimed in:

But now, a [March 2] statement from the Lakeville Area Public Schools revealed the perpetrator to be “non-Caucasian” with “significant special education needs.” The statement read:

On February 27, a LSHS staff member reported someone had written offensive words and images on bathroom stalls. A student subsequently was identified and will be subject to disciplinary action under school and district policy. Lakeville South High School administration received permission from the parent to share that the student is non-Caucasian and has significant special education needs. While this does not excuse the student’s actions, the District believes it will help the community and others put this incident into perspective.

(29) March 2017, Chicago, IL: Nazi-like flyers were distributed on college campuses, depicting Jews as unfairly dominating the richest 1% in America, and why they must be opposed

On March 16, 2017, several stories appeared in national Jewish news media about virulently anti-Semitic flyers being distributed by an unnamed party in Chicago.  The story broke at the JTA at 1:10pm.  Then, four hours later, from the Chicago Sun-Times:

Anti-Semitic fliers found in UIC campus buildings, by Sam Charles, Chicago Sun-Times, March 16, 2017, 5:53pm. Excerpt:

Dozens of anti-Semitic fliers were found in several buildings on the University of Illinois at Chicago campus Tuesday.

The fliers accused Jews of controlling a disproportionate amount of the wealth in the United States, stating “Ending white privilege starts with ending Jewish privilege.”

The fliers were found in the Richard J. Daley Library and in the campus student centers, according to Eva Zeltser, a communications student and president of Rohr Chabad, a Jewish student organization at UIC.

Zeltser said there were dozens of fliers in the multistory library.

“They were found by a handful on each floor, I can only estimate [there were] more than 100,” she said.


HuffPost’s search engine proves it completely ignored this story.

Racist Posters Promoting White Supremacy Plague College Campuses; The Anti-Defamation League has catalogued more than 100 incidents of racist fliers found on college campuses, by Sebastian Murdock, The Huffington Post, March 16, 2017, 5:14 pm. Excerpt:

Colleges across the U.S. continue to be plagued with fliers promoting racism.

On Monday, multiple fliers posted by members of Vanguard America ― a white supremacy group ― were found on the University of Maryland Campus.

“A notice to all white Americans,” one flier read. “It is your civic duty to report any and all illegal aliens. …They are criminals. America is a white nation.”

“Carry the torch of your people,” another said. It was the third time in three months that fliers were found on the campus, according to The Washington Post.

Why would HuffPost publish on its front page, for two straight days, a story about one racist flyer — but not another?


Here’s a sampling of other “news” stories that HuffPost published on its front page from March 15-17, instead of anything about the anti-Semitic flyers being distributed across college campuses:

(30) March 2017, Chandler, AZ: Arrests made in December 2016 vandalism incident*, in which a metal menorah in front of a home was turned into a swastika [*belatedly discovered by STW]

On December 30, 2016, AZFamily.com, the Chandler, AZ CBS affiliate, posted the following story, about an incident that happened earlier that day:

Community supports family whose menorah was found twisted into swastika, by Catherine Holland, AZFamily.com, Dec 30, 2016. Excerpt:

As Hanukkah draws to a close, a Chandler couple woke up to find their front-yard decoration celebrating the holiday had been turned into the universal symbol of hate.

Naomi Ellis said her husband, Seth, built the menorah after their three sons – ages 5, 7 and 9 – asked for holiday lights to celebrate the season.

“We live in a great neighborhood with kind and welcoming neighbors,” Ellis said. “We never would have imagined that someone would spread so much hate here.”

Friday morning, Ellis awoke to what she called a “horrible act of aggression.”

During the night, somebody destroyed the family’s menorah and turned it into a swastika.

“This clear act of hate and racism is disturbing and sad,” she said. “I broke down in tears waiting for the police to come and hoping that my kids would not be awake to see it.”

4 people arrested in vandalism of Chandler family’s menorah into swastika, by Johana Restrepo and Diego Mendoza-Moyers, AZCentral.com, March 17, 2017. Excerpt:

Four people have been arrested on suspicion of contorting a Chandler family’s decorative light-up menorah into a swastika in December.

Chandler police responded early on Dec. 30 after Naomi and Seth Ellis said they woke up to find a menorah, which they had placed in their front yard, disfigured overnight into the shape of a swastika.

Seth Ellis, who works in construction, had built the 8-foot-tall menorah out of PVC pipe. Ellis’ children had seen Christmas displays and had asked their father if they could have a display to celebrate their Jewish faith.

One of the suspects was identified by Chandler police as 19-year-old Clive Jamar Wilson. The other three suspects are male juveniles, according to Sgt. Daniel Mejia, Chandler police spokesman.

All four were arrested on suspicion of first-degree criminal trespass and aggravated criminal damage.

Clive Jamar Wilson, 19, the only adult charged in this hate crime.

Given the ease with which HuffPost gave top coverage to phony hate crimes allegations against Trump supporters that it knew were based on nothing but Facebook posts or Tweets (then removing them, once they were revealed to be  hoaxes), it is reasonable to assume that had the perpetrator of this hate crime be been a white person wearing a Trump-supporting attire, it would have given this story top coverage.

(31) March 2017, Montreal, CA: Imam caught on video calling for Jews to be killed during sermon

On March 21, 2017, B’nai Brith Canada announced that it had filed a police complaint against a mosque, regarding a video that surfaced that showed one of its imams openly calling on attendees to murder Jews.

Another Montreal Imam Incites Violence Against Jewish Community, by Aidan Fishman, B’nai Brith Canada, March 21, 2017. Excerpt:

MONTREAL – B’nai Brith Canada has reported an incident involving yet another Montreal imam to the Hate Crimes Unit of the Montreal Police Service. As CIJNews reports, the imam was recorded delivering an antisemitic sermon and inciting violence against Jewish people.

In a speech delivered on Dec. 23, 2016 at the Dar al-Arkam mosque, Muhammad bin Musa al Nasr describes Jews as “the most evil of mankind” and as “human demons,” before quoting from the hadith: at “the end of time… the stone and the tree will say: ‘Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me – come and kill him!’”

In February, an imam at a different Montreal mosque was discovered to have promoted violence against the Jewish community during sermons he delivered. Montreal Police are still investigating the incident, and have yet to lay charges.

“It’s been 42 days since we filed a complaint about the last imam to promote such hatred, and Montreal police are still deciding whether calling on Allah to ‘destroy the accursed Jews’ is hate speech,” said Michael Mostyn, Chief Executive Officer of B’nai Brith Canada. “When will Canada finally recognize that we are not immune to racism and antisemitism, and that it is this type of rhetoric that directly leads to radicalization all over the world?”

On March 22, the Canada Free Press picked up the story.

On March 23, the CBC reported the story:

Imam calling for Jews to be killed in sermon at Montreal mosque draws police complaint; Larger Muslim community wants apology from mosque and wonders why controversial imam was invited to preach, by Brennan Neill, Stephen Smith, CBC News, March 23, 2017.  Excerpt:

A Montreal mosque is facing a police complaint and rebukes from the larger Muslim community after a video of an imam delivering a sermon in which he asks for Jews to be killed surfaced online.

The sermon took place at the Dar Al-Arqam Mosque in the city’s Saint-Michel neighbourhood on Dec. 23, 2016.

The video was posted to the mosque’s YouTube channel three days later. The imam in the video is Jordanian cleric Sheikh Muhammad bin Musa Al Nasr — he was reportedly an invited guest of the mosque.

In the video, the imam says in Arabic, “O Muslim, O servant of Allah, O Muslim, O servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.”

Part of the phrase references an Islamic hadith, which interprets the words and actions by the Prophet Muhammad.

CBC independently verified the speech and its translation.

(A1) February 2017, Iraq/Syria: ISIS operative issues video blog urging Islamists in Western nations to disguise selves as Jews, then “terrorize Jews”

From the Daily Mail (UK):

‘Dress up like a Jew and make sure you have plenty of weapons under your coat’: ISIS fanatics issue chilling call to ‘terrorise’ Jewish people in the West, by Julian Robinson, Daily Mail (UK), February 28, 2017.

ISIS fanatics have issued a chilling call for fellow extremists to ‘terrorise’ Jewish communities in the West.  Brainwashed supporters were advised to ‘dress up like a Jew’ and conceal weapons under their coats before ‘unleashing the pain of the Muslims’ on their victims.

The terrifying call to arms emerged on an ISIS-linked Telegram channel called Lone Mujahid – a chat room where aspiring terrorists are encourage to carry out ‘lone-wolf’-style attacks. […]

The chat room post said: ‘IF YOU’RE STILL IN THE WEST! Dress up like a Jew! Go to your nearest Jewish area! Make sure you have plenty of weapons under you coat!’

It then urges followers to ‘unleash the pain of the Muslims’.

(A2) February 2017, Hollywood, CA: Actor called “Jew rat” and “kike” on social media

‘Scandal’ Co-Star Called ‘Jew Rat,’ ‘Kike’ on Social Media After Cursing Oscar-Winning Director Mel Gibson, Infamous for Antisemitic Rant, by Shiryn Ghermezian, The Algemeiner, February 27, 2017.

The Jewish actor who plays David Rosen in the hit ABC series “Scandal” was called a “Jew rat,” “Kike” and “Jew fa**ot” on Twitter Sunday night for cursing out director Mel Gibson, whose latest film took home two wins at the 2017 Academy Awards.

Joshua Malina became the target of the social media onslaught after tweeting, “F*** Mel Gibson” when “Hacksaw Ridge,” directed by the latter — who is infamous for launching into an antisemitic rant in 2006 when stopped for drunk driving in LA — won Film Editing and Sound Mixing Oscars.

One Gibson fan told Malina that he should keep “art and ideology” separate, to which the actor replied, “That’s why I tweeted ‘F*** Mel Gibson’ rather than ‘F*** Hacksaw Ridge.’”
