The Rising Tide of Internet Anti-Semitism

A few years ago, I was blogging at The Jawa Report and making assorted activism videos, and I began noticing a disturbing trend at sites like MySpace, YouTube, LiveLeak and other social networks. It seemed to me there had been a steady and rapid increase in the quantity of blatantly anti-Semitic commentary on these sites, and the geographical diversity of the people posting them.

They were certainly nothing new, but I began to notice an increased proliferation of Internet 'trolls' that seemed to have no other function than to spread disinformation about Israel and the Holocaust or simply to make libelous comments about Jews in general. Entire profiles were devoted to this, boasting large lists of 'friends' and subscribers, as well as voluminous libraries of support materials, such as anti-Israeli videos, book lists to dispel the 'myth of the holocaust' and link archives of like-minded individuals.

I decided to create a video about this anti-Semitism, and I posted it on the Jawa Report (via YouTube), along with 100 screen-captures of vile, anti-Semitic comments from assorted social networks. It did not take long to compile this hateful commentary; the difficulty was in sorting through such a large volume of egregious material...

Counter-Jihad Resource Links

For several years now, I have sought to educate myself about Islam, terrorism, Middle East history and assorted subjects that relate to national and international security. During that time, I have compiled an extensive list of resources that I have found invaluable in understanding the jihad, and in working to counter it. I'm posting an alphabetical list of these links here for others who seek a deeper understanding of these subjects.

This list is not exhaustive, and I cannot vouch for the content contained on every one of these sites. These resources are only a guide, and meant to be used in conjunction with one's critical thinking skills, an open mind and a healthy dose of skepticism. No 'authority' is infallible, and even the best intentioned author or analyst sometimes misses the mark.

With that said, there is a great deal of knowledge and wisdom that can be gleaned from the resources on this list, and I urge you to examine each carefully.

If you know of a resource not found on in this list that you believe belongs here, please feel free to leave a comment or send me a message, and I will consider it for inclusion. If you find a link that no longer works, I'd appreciate being notified about it:
