Update — 10/02/14: Read more about the 2nd New Hori­zon Con­fer­ence and its U.S. and inter­na­tional par­tic­i­pants.

Iran kicked off its anti-America and anti-Israel New Hori­zon Con­fer­ence as the final part of the 13th Inter­na­tional Resis­tance Film Fes­ti­val in Tehran. The three-day con­fer­ence opened on Sep­tem­ber 29 and marks the sec­ond time Tehran has hosted the event. Accord­ing to orga­niz­ers, the event will include “tens of elite thinkers, philoso­phers, activists and politi­cians world­wide” who will dis­cuss and “expose” Zion­ist con­trol of the film indus­try and the influ­ence of the “Zion­ist lobby in America.”

As in the pre­vi­ous con­fer­ence, this year’s New Hori­zon Con­fer­ence has drawn the par­tic­i­pa­tion of sev­eral anti-Israel activists, anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­o­rists and Holo­caust deniers.… read more

Dieudonné, who has been con­victed and fined mul­ti­ple times for anti-Semitic speech in France, sched­uled sev­eral per­for­mances in Nyon, Switzer­land, a town just four miles over the border.

Last night’s per­for­mance coin­cided with the British government’s deci­sion to declare Dieudonné per­sona non grata, for­bid­ding him entry into the UK. … read more

Quenelle Embraced By U.S. Holocaust Denier

The “quenelle,” the anti-Semitic ges­ture cre­ated by French anti-Semitic per­former Dieudonne M’bala M’bala, has been gain­ing a fol­low­ing among anti-Semites, Holo­caust deniers, and has even been flashed by some pro­fes­sional ath­letes.gordon-duff-press-tv-anti-semitism

The lat­est show of sup­port for the quenelle has come from Gor­don Duff, a senior edi­tor of the anti-Semitic and con­spir­a­to­r­ial Vet­er­ans Today. In a Jan­u­ary 2, 2014 arti­cle pub­lished by Press TV, the Iran­ian government’s English-language pro­pa­ganda sta­tion which fre­quently pro­vides a plat­form for Amer­i­can anti-Semites, Duff describes the mod­i­fied Nazi salute as an “inter­na­tional, inclu­sive, non-sectarian” sym­bol that serves as an “antithe­sis” to Zionism.… read more
