Rabbi Abraham Cooper of the Simon Wiesenthal Center gives astounding insights into the German-Israel-Jewish relationship, some of which are worrying. Germany’s insistence on trading ties with Iran, its increased funding to UNRWA, the overlooking anti-Semitism of the Left, and Holocaust memorialization are just some of the issues discussed.
In 1984, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem established the Carl Melchior Chair for International Policy, but mostly, people have hardly heard of him. If only the Museum would hold true to its name and dedicate more of its resources to such important German-Jewish figures instead of politicized, interfaith exhibitions, then perhaps the legacy of people like Melchior would be more justly redeemed.
Of her time in the European hot spot, Cohen said, “First of all, I felt the presence of Israelis in Berlin who had true open minds. And I know there was a movement of Israelis for many years to Berlin, and it fascinated me to see that the flower that blossomed out of the crack of the war was coming back to meet its root. I found that so beautiful.”
Orit gladly takes a break from politics and publishes an article on social egg freezing in the 2018 Winter edition of “MUM” magazine.
On October 11, Kanye West devastated the mainstream media when he professed his love for President Donald Trump. Just two days before, another event of equal devastation took place in Germany: German Jews professed their love for Alternative for Deutschland (AfD), which the German mainstream media has long peddled as a neo-Nazi party much in the …
Last year, Orit went on a Nazi-hunt at an AfD victory party in Munich. AfD, after all, is supposed to be Germany’s neo-Nazi party. She didn’t find Nazis there, but it seems the AfD hid their Naziness to recruit Jews! Talk about diabolical! (Click above for the English subtitled version.)
Since its founding in 2013 as a Euro-skeptic party, the AfD has been criticized by the mainstream German Jewish community over concerns of its views on Muslim migrants and country’s Nazi past. Yet Jewish supporters see the opposite. “I prefer to be part of a party that wants to help living Jews, not dead Jews,” said one Jewish supporter.
In his characteristic style, acclaimed columnist and satiric writer, Henryk Broder, comes to Orit’s defense as she’s marginally “smeared” as a “Trump apologist” by the radical left-wing newspaper, TAZ. Below is the rough English translation of his article. Not like this, Orit! Not with us! Of course, the TAZ is for freedom of speech and …
Exclusive to Die Achse Des Guten.
Upon leaving Berlin for the first time, Feldman felt unnerved and heavy. Her main association with Berlin was the Holocaust. But then, in 2014, while taking part in a documentary on women who left strict, patriarchal communities, she saw a different side of the city. A fun, creative side. A diverse side. A side she could live in.
Here “Dr. Orit” guides Germans on the ultimate “denazification meditation” to enable them to heal properly from their Nazi past so that they could make better decisions for themselves and their country.
In the second webisode of “Germany on the Couch,” Dr. Orit dramatizes the six German personality traits, quirks and idiosyncrasies that made the Holocaust happen. Warning: It’s O-FUNsive!
Israel-German relations have just heated up!
Dr. Orit puts Germans on the couch and offers them three not-so-easy steps for overcoming Holocaust guilt, but which is essential to moving forward psychologically and emotionally.
“Most of the Palestinians, they’re people who want to live well — that’s what’s important to them,” she said. “And part of the good and simple life is to live in harmony with the Jews. Many of them don’t have extreme political views. If you succeed in having Jews and Palestinians meet each other, and the Palestinian sees the Jew is not the enemy, he’ll break out of his stereotypical view, and vice versa.”
Author DM Miller has rated Underskin as one of the top five books of 2017. She begins: A book that makes you think. That’s what I’m always searching for, and I found it here. After reading and subsequently ranting and raving about Arfa’s first novel, The Settler, I was anxious to see what she’d come up …
“A book recommended to anyone looking for some fresh, bold voices and point of views about the human German-Israeli story.” —Think Now review of Underskin
The bearers of these Hanukkah candles aren’t Jewish. In fact, many of them are descendants of avowed Nazis. They are members of TOS Ministries, a church in Tübingen that for the past 10 years has made it a religious mission to redeem the town, the souls of its residents and the Christian faith by connecting Christianity to its Jewish roots, researching personal family history as it relates to the Holocaust and standing up for Israel.
Harvey Weinstein was slimeball, but aren’t worse things happening in the world? You’d think Iran just set off a nuclear bomb from the way the media has wailed about Harvey Weinstein. You’d think at this point Weinstein–not Trump–is Hitler. He was a bully and sexual predator (and if rape allegations are true, he should serve …
Stella Goldschlag’s story is the stuff of books, films, plays, and this month, a musical in Berlin running through the end of September at the Neukoellner Oper. Stella utilized attributes that could have made her a Marlene Dietrich contemporary (had her father not been denied an American visa) for one, pernicious purpose: catching Jews.
