We have faced varying degrees of hostility and manipulation. But let’s not pretend Corbyn’s Labour invented antisemitism
It is utterly bewildering that Labour MPs and journalists thought it was fine to distinguish bad Jews from good this week, as a way to discredit Jeremy Corbyn’s Passover meeting with the radical London-based group Jewdas. These voices said the Jewish community organisation, friendly to the Labour leader, was the wrong kind of Jew. Yet other Jewish groups – those critical of the Labour leader – had until then refused to meet with him unconditionally. It wasn’t him refusing to meet them.

Former prime minister Tony Abbott says that around 400 white farmers have been murdered in South Africa over the past 12 months. RMIT ABC Fact Check takes a look at the data.

The most recent police statistics show that 74 people were murdered on farms in the year to March 2017.
I have to say – 50 years later – I never really got over the deaths of Martin and Bobby. I was living and going to college at American University in Washington, D.C. at the time. In an improvised speech 50 years ago, Kennedy broke the news of King’s death to a largely black crowd. Two months later, he too was killed.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is preparing a report on President Trump’s actions during his tenure in office and anything that could be considered obstruction of justice, according to The Washington Post.
Sources told the Post that Mueller relayed the information to Trump’s legal team, and emphasized his team’s need to sit down with the president in order to determine if he had any intent to foil the federal probe into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The publication also reported on Tuesday that Mueller told Trump’s lawyers last month that he does not consider the president to be a criminal target at this point in his probe.
Trump was reportedly relieved to hear that Mueller had not considered him to be a criminal target, and has expressed more willingness to agree to a future interview.
The president has said in the past that he would be willing to sit down with Mueller’s team.
However, the special counsel still considers the president to be a subject of his investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election.
Trump’s advisers have warned that the special counsel could potentially put the president at risk of becoming a criminal target.
Trump has repeatedly denied that there was any collusion between his campaign and Russian election meddling and has referred to Mueller’s probe as a “witch hunt” and a “hoax.”

As newcomers reshape their communities, longtime residents themselves adjust to shifting social, economic, and political contexts—sometimes re-engaging with their own ethnic or cultural identities. This article explores this process of relational assimilation in Silicon Valley.
