Were More People Killed in the Name of God or in the Name of Equality?
Dennis Prager

Almost anyone who has graduated from college in the last 50 years has repeatedly heard the statement, “More people have been killed in the name of God than in the name of anything else.” And most of them believe it. It would take a long essay to respond to this claim. I will therefore only note here that if by “God” the people who make this statement are referring to the God of the Bible, and therefore to Christians (Jews rarely had enough numbers or power to persecute anyone), the statement is simply not true. Yes, Christians killed Jews (though it was never official church doctrine to do so ..read more

Germans — Even During the Hitler Era — Were a Better People Than the Palestinians

Immediately after the burnings, rapes, mutilations and murders of Jews on Oct. 7, I was not alone in noting the one moral difference between Hamas and the Nazis: The Nazis tried to hide their crimes against the Jews from the German people (and the world) while Hamas proudly publicized their crimes against the Jews to the Palestinian people (and didn’t mind that the world would inevitably see them bragging about killing Jews). In addition to videoing their atrocities, Hamas paraded captured Jews — dead and alive, clothed and naked — in front of cheering Palestinian crowds in Gaza. This leads to ..read more

Why Americans Mistrust Election Results More Than the Citizens of Any Other Democracy

Last week, 27 European nations voted for their representatives in the European Parliament. If you were aware of this, did you happen to notice that there were no allegations of cheating in any European country? If you are on the left, you might respond that there were no such allegations because the right did better than the left, and it’s the right that makes these allegations. But that response has little merit. For one thing, there were no such allegations, let alone demonstrations, during all the years left-wing parties won European Parliamentary elections or national elections. For anothe ..read more

America Has Its First Show Trial

To understand the damage done by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, Judge Juan Merchan, and the Manhattan jury in the Donald Trump corporate records trial, one must first understand the most important rule of modern life: Everything the Left touches it destroys. The Justice Department and the American legal system are only the most immediate examples. Here are 25 other examples: 1. Universities. 2. High schools. 3. Elementary schools. 4. Children’s innocence. 5. Marriage and family. 6. Children who say they are the other sex. 7. Journalism. 8. Women’s psychological health. 9. Black life ..read more

Universities Breed Evil

All my adult life, I have warned people about the low moral and intellectual level of colleges and universities. This is the way I have put it: “If you send your child to college, you are playing Russian Roulette with his or her values.” I have always made it clear that for STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) and a few other specialized subjects, there may be no choice. You can’t learn those subjects on your own. But parents take serious risks when they send their child to college. One reason is that the ages between 18 and 22, when the vast majority of young people attend college, a ..read more

The Genocide Libel Is the Blood Libel of Our Time
Dennis Prager
by Dennis Prager
2M ago
In medieval Europe, Christians who hated Jews spread the lie that Jews kidnap Christian children, slaughter them, and use their blood to bake matzos for Passover. This lie became known as “the Blood Libel,” probably the greatest libel in history. Over the course of many centuries, Jews were tortured and murdered, often by being burned alive, because of the Blood Libel. The Blood Libel was particularly odious in light of two facts: It was the Jews who, through their Bible, first outlawed human sacrifice; and one of the first laws in the Hebrew Bible is a ban on consuming blood. For centuries, J ..read more

Sick Jews

I doubt that there is any national or religious group that produces the percentage of people who aid those who wish to hurt, let alone kill, that group as do Jews. When one observes Jews who defend those whose raison d’etre is the annihilation of the one Jewish country on Earth, you have to ask: Why are there no others like them? Were there blacks who defended slavery? Were there Armenians who defended the Turkish mass murder of fellow Armenians during World War I? It is true that every nation has produced people who work against their nation — particularly during time of war. Vidkun Quisling ..read more

Communists Betray Workers, Teachers Unions Betray Students, Civil Rights Organizations Betray Blacks

The Communist Party of the Soviet Union — like most communist parties — came to power as the great defender of workers. In reality, the Soviet Communist Party didn’t give a hoot about Russian workers. The party was nothing more than a totalitarian organization that used workers to gain power — and then suppressed the proletariat, just as it suppressed every other group. One of the first things the Communist Party did after attaining power was disband independent labor unions and prohibit workers’ strikes. Yes, the “workers’ party” banned strikes. The one major exception was the Chinese Communi ..read more

Israel As ‘A Pariah’ Among the Nations

Last week, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) twice described Israel as a “pariah” among the world’s nations: “Israel cannot survive if it becomes a pariah. … [The Israeli public] understands better than anybody that Israel cannot hope to succeed as a pariah opposed by the rest of the world.” It was for that reason that the majority leader said that Israel should choose a leader other than Benjamin Netanyahu, its current prime minister. Then, Schumer implied, Israel will presumably no longer be a pariah. In Schumer’s view, and in the view of most of the Democratic Party, as well as ..read more

The Pope Hopes No One Is in Hell. We Should.

In a television interview watched by millions, Pope Francis recently made a comment about hell that has been widely reported. In the words of the Catholic News Agency: “When asked by the interviewer, Fabio Fazio, how he ‘imagines hell,’ Pope Francis gave a short response. ‘What I am going to say is not a dogma of faith but my own personal view: I like to think of hell as empty; I hope it is.'” I have a different — indeed, completely opposite — view. I should make it clear that I, too, hope that sometime in the future — hopefully the near future — no one will be sent to hell. That would mean go ..read more
