Why is the Biden administration verbally supporting Israel while hamstringing Israel's Rafah operation? Why is it vetoing a UN resolution for an immediate ceasefire while proposing a resolution that calls for one? Why has the Biden administration prioritized fighting against "settler violence" right after Israel has s...

After Oct. 7th, antisemitism has skyrocketed around the world - in the streets, media and in public discourse. After decades of multi-million dollar campaigns and efforts by Jewish groups to educate people about the Holocaust and antisemitism, nothing seems to have helped. Why have they not succeeded and is there anything that can be done? Where is this antisemitism coming from?

Slavery and sex trafficking have never ended in Africa. But while the human rights community seems obsessed with "genocide" in Palestine, no one really pays attention to the massive human rights violations happening to black people in Africa. Why are human rights groups so selective? Why does the media gravitate towards and champion the rights of some while others are ignored?

Why has there been so much silence and outright denial of Hamas crimes by purported women's rights groups? Why has the "MeToo" movement that pushed to "believe all women" not done the same for the women who were raped and abused by Palestinian attackers?
