Israel is one of few countries on earth with two independence days: sure, you could celebrate the Jewish state’s independence on May 14th (or on the 5th of Iyar, if you prefer), in recognition of David Ben Gurion’s declaration of the state of Israel after the termination of the British mandate. But if one independence day […]
Crazy shit correspondent Armin Rosen happened by a rather unusual protest on Broadway this afternoon. The Tanach teaches that the temple in Jerusalem was destroyed because of the “groundless hatred” Jews harbored towards their fellow Jews. Fuck it, say the Neturai Karta. The anti-Zionist ultra-orthodox sect whose views on Israel and the Holocaust are in […]
A few who knew that LionPAC had reserved the Sundial for the same time that Lucha and Filasteen were planning a human wall across Low Plaza anticipated a showdown – but would have been disappointed, as the event went down without incident. About 50 people (very roughly speaking), including many of the New York Magazine […]
Out with the new, in with the old, as Bwog correspondent Armin Rosen reports on the good old-fashioned crazy Israel-Palestine debate. Between farcical stage-rushings, dictatorial speaking engagements, gay porn-star conservatives, bizarrely poor choices for class day speakers and Ann Coulter it’s been a truly historic year for unintentional black comedy at 116th and Broadway. Columbians, […]

Of course, Bwog only learned of the free drinks and food exactly one minute after said tab was closed. Nevertheless, The Current is […]
It’s 50 degrees outside! Celebrate the end of the week and treat yourself to an ice cream sandwich. After stopping by the Good Humor cart, walk past the Aish booth on Low Plaza. If you look Jewish enough, you might just be handed an opportunity to get “spiritual discovery” in Israel for the low, low […]
It seemed like something was going to happen in the hubbub filling Roone Arledge Auditorium a few hours ago, just before Norman Finkelstein, author of The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering, started his speech. Two hours in, Finkelstein is still going, after saying at least 15 times that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict […]
It’s academia’s equivalent to The 50 Most Beautiful People. And it’s put out by that most discerning of polemicists, David Horowitz. With all the appropriate pageantry, he presents us withThe 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America. Danger is sexy! And guess what? Columbia is the sexiest! Nine of the Dr. Dangers teach at Columbia. Eric […]
After braving the mountainous snowfall to end up at the Manhattan Jewish Community Center on 76th St. at Amsterdam, one Bwog correspondent found her urge for ground chickpeas unsatisfied. The Center promised to set a Guiness World Record today with a 12 ft. wide, 500 lb. plate of hummus. Upon arrival, she was told the […]
Students are currently giving out blue and white t-shirts on College Walk. You might want to pick one up if you’re comfortable with the message: Front: “Our bodies are temples….” Back: “Reform Jews are HOT” The Blue and White: Now using sex to sell Judaism…. -Lydia Depillis
