  • The 'Jew Goal'

    31 Oct 2011 by Dave Rich

    The question of how deeply embedded antisemitic stereotypes and slurs are in society is one of the less tangible areas of antisemitism research. Often, examples emerge in the most banal settings: less serious in many ways than actual antisemitic hate crimes or statements by high profile people, but somehow more…

  • Tunisia's Spring: what precedent for Jews?

    28 Oct 2011 by Mark Gardner

    Tunisia is where ‘the Arab Spring’ first bloomed. Now, it is the first such country to have held a democratic election. The election has been won by a political Islamist group, the Ennahda  Party, which took 90 of the 217 seats. Ennahda and its leader Sheikh Rached Al-Ghannouchi are widely r…

  • Raed Salah loses appeal against deportation

    27 Oct 2011 by CST

    Sheikh Raed Salah, the leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel, has lost his appeal against deportation from the United Kingdom.

  • "Doctored quotes" and CST

    7 Oct 2011 by CST

    As has been widely reported, CST provided information to the government to assist their efforts to exclude, and now deport, the radical Arab-Israeli preacher Sheikh Raed Salah from the United Kingdom. We did this because we believe Salah to have made antisemitic and extremist statements in the past; and because…

  • Middle East Monitor: faking a Jewish conspiracy

    5 Oct 2011 by Dave Rich

    Middle East Monitor (MEMO) is a pro-Palestinian lobbying group which generally supports Islamist positions within Palestinian politics. We have had cause to write about MEMO on this blog before, because they commonly promote conspiracy theories about politicians in Western nations being beholden to Jewish or Zionist political manipulation and financial…

  • The Spirit of Cable Street

    4 Oct 2011 by Dave Rich

    Today is the 75th anniversary of the 'Battle of Cable Street', when an attempted march by Sir Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists (BUF), through largely-Jewish areas of the East End of London in October 1936, was prevented by huge numbers of anti-fascist protestors, who engaged in violent clashes with…

  • From The Wandering Jew to The (new) Jewish Question

    3 Oct 2011 by Mark Gardner

    Gilad Atzmon is an ex-Israeli Jew. His latest book, “The Wandering Who?”, is potentially a key moment in the battle against contemporary antisemitism: forcing parts of the anti-Zionist left to finally confront the antisemitic dead-end that their over-heated fervour can lead to. The book is both old and new. I…

“Since 2003, CST has been a stalwart supporter of ODIHR in its efforts to effectively monitor antisemitic hate crime in the OSCE Region. With its rigorous methodology and innovative partnerships with the British police, it is viewed by many as representing the gold standard for NGO responses to all forms of hate crime. I wish CST all success in its exciting new phase of work.”
