To prevent confusion, I will highlight the definition of the verb ban from Google: officially or legally prohibit (something). The Lebanese American University's libraries (largest libraries in the Middle East with over 350,000 books) provide the book. Searching the catalog here with the phrase "The diary of Anne Frank" (or The Diary of a Young Girl) ...

It seems what Bin Laden was referring to is the so-called Franklin’s Prophecy. The US embassy also makes this connection: Osama bin Laden referred to Pelley’s “Franklin Prophecy” forgery in his 2002 “Letter to the American People,” in which he complained about supposed Jewish power in America, stating that this is “precisely what Benjamin Franklin warned ...

He would regularly broadcast in Arabic from Berlin, and these transmissions were relayed to other axis radio transmitters for the Arab world to hear. In March of 1944, speaking on Berlin radio he said: Arabs! Arise as one and fight for your sacred rights. Kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history, and religion. This saves your ...

No. That film is only from 2006. See the 1996 book The Longest Shadow: In the Aftermath of the Holocaust: It is enough to show that they[ Leon Daudet and others] sought to project an image of the Jew as, in Richard Wagner's words, a 'plastic demon of decadence': that is, as the very principle of the non-solid, of what is essentially groundless, rootless,...

Thanks to Laurel for locating the original article. As we can see, the quoted text did appear in the New York Times on June 15, 1934. I wanted to point out some important context that makes the excerpt somewhat misleading, and conflicts with Evan's characterization in the question's title. The phrasing "New York Times posted this Hitler apology" makes it ...

This is not a conclusive argument that Eleanor Roosevelt never said this - it is practically impossible to prove that someone never made a particular argument. Further, I have not spent much time reading biographies or other histories about her. However, there is some circumstantial evidence to suggest that this was not her (publicly espoused) point of view....

As the source of the image says, it’s from the June 15, 1934 issue of The New York Times. Here’s a screenshot of the article, "URGES GOOD WILL BY JEWS FOR NAZIS" by Henry J. Cadbury the Professor of Biblical Literature of Bryn Mawr College. Here is the article in full, with the quote from the question being under "Urges Appeal to Justice": URGES GOOD WILL ...

Pulling together the discussions from the comments: Overall? There's a bit of truth in both, but in both cases the statements are technically false and also ignore important context. For the 600 beheaded Jews: According to Mohammed al-Ghazali, during that time the Muslims allowed the Jews who had refused to betray the Prophet during the Battle of ...

CNN Anchor and Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper confirms that the CNN caption (chyron) reading "ALT-RIGHT FOUNDER QUESTIONS IF JEWS ARE PEOPLE" was real, in a Twitter conversation about the dangers of normalising extremism: yes, I'm off this week and I'm furious about that chyron and my staff has heard from me. Unacceptable. The Richard Spencer ...

Two more news outlets reported about this case, both referencing the Bild: taz and Huffington Post. In a Facebook post, the AfD itself describes the case like this: Anders als derzeit kolportiert wird, hatte die AfD-Fraktion im Landtag von Baden-Württemberg nie die Absicht, Gerard Menuhin zum Gutachter im Fall Wolfgang Gedeon zu bestellen. Der Name ...

Ford was an antisemite, so such a quote is not out of character. Many other sources attribute the quote to "The Dearborn Independent, 12-19 February 1921". The quote is from two different articles. From The Jewish Aspect of the "Movie" Problem: If this is true, it is chargeable to the Jews themselves, for Jews have always controlled the business. That ...

This is only regarding the torture part of the question: A group of eight men from the tribe of 'Ukil came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and then they found the climate of Medina unsuitable for them. So, they said, "O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)! Provide us with some milk." Allah's Apostle said, "I recommend that you should join the herd of camels." So they went and drank ...

Something like that, yes; but like everything else religious it's complicated. The basic idea, as far as I understand it, is that Gentiles have less Nefesh (נפש) but all have Neshama (הנשמה). Note that both words translate to the same English "soul", and that according to most sources I saw it has no real practical meaning - we are all descendants of the ...

According to the Middle East Media Research Institute's Special Dispatch No. 48, Hitler's Mein Kampf In East Jerusalem And PA Territories: Mein Kampf "is sixth on the Palestinian best-seller list". This was back in 1999, and supports the claim of the BBC article in the OP which is from 2002. Though the title in the OP generalizes to "Muslim countries", ...

It's not just Jews. For example: According to WRAL with respect to the above ad concerning George Holding: The ad has run more than 500 times so far on network television in the Raleigh and according to Wikipedia: George and Lucy Holding... are members of Christ Baptist Church in Raleigh Republicans are also depicted by the news media in the ...

Here are some counter-examples to the WaPo narrative: Democratic candidates that have been targeted with adverts suggesting they are motivated by cash, even though the candidates are not Jewish: The first is actually of national importance.

R (Rabbi) Kook did write this, it is in his work Orot. He speaks here of the highest level of the soul, kabbalistic ideas which are hard to understand for those who are not familiar with their context. This doesn't mean that he felt that Gentiles were inferior to Jews - just that they have have souls of a different nature (this is what is meant by "a ...

The 1999 book Khomeini: Life of the Ayatollah at page 280 says: Khomeini believed that anyone who took up arms, directly or indirectly, against the Islamic government should suffer the death penalty. Whereas in defence of his arguments Montazeri cited examples of the clemency the Prophet had shown towards his enemies,[cites to reference 22 of chapter 14]...

The quote is in the 2002 book President Nixon: Alone in the White House at page 170. I can't tell if the book is quoting H. R. Haldeman's diary or not.

The article seems real, but mentions influence, not control. There seems to be a bit of a mix up about who said what: An article published in the Israeli newspaper Maariv in 1994, authored by Israeli reporter Avinoam Bar-Yosef. Highlights and commentary by Anti-Zionist Jewish activist Israel Shahak, published on the antisemitic web site www.islam-radio.net....

Apparently, this information is based on recent AfD email leaks which are only available to bild.de. As far as I know it is the rule that leaks are launched by sending them to only one press organ, which gives the whistleblower more control about what is published due to relations based on mutual trust. When I am not mistaken no other newspaper will cite the ...

According to The Nation - Remembering what the Supreme leaders of Iran said about Al-Quds day: From the beginning of Iran's revolution, Imam Khomeini stated that one of his goals was the liberation of Palestine from its occupant government. After the revolution, all official ties to Israel were severed and Israel's embassy in Iran was granted to the ...
