Immigration has been thrust to the fore of Italy’s election campaign after a politician from a right-wing party warned that “the white race” was in danger of dying out.

The debate over race, integration and multiculturalism is shaping up as one of the key issues in the March 4 election, in a country which has rescued around 600,000 migrants and refugees in the Mediterranean in the last four years, most of whom arrived by boat from Libya.

Attilio Fontana, a prominent politician...

A new report from the Anti-Defamation League shows that murders by white supremacists doubled in 2017 — and that they killed more people than Muslim extremists.

As the Huffington Post reported Wednesday, the ADL’s Center on Extremism found that 34 people were killed by extremists last year. Of those, 20 people (or 59 percent) “were killed by right-wing extremists, a designation that includes white supremacists, members of the so-called ‘alt-right’ and ‘alt-lite,’ and members of the...

Israel Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel, the head of the National Union faction of the Bayit Yehudi party, said Wednesday that the time has come for Israel to expel the families of Palestinians who murder Israelis and to alter the current reality in Judea and Samaria in which Palestinians who kill Israelis walk away from their attacks “clean.”

“The security establishment understands what needs to be done, how much needs to be done, why it needs to be done. We don’t need to debate the...

Public announcements of “New Year’s Babies,” complete with images of beaming parents holding their...

A disabled Iranian refugee murdered in the U.K. by a neighbor who believed he was a pedophile was a victim of institutional racism, a report stated on Monday. The independent review said police and Bristol City Council had wrongly categorized Bijan Ebrahimi as a troublemaker, rather than a victim, and sided with his abusers. Findings claimed police and the council in south-west England displayed a "distinct lack of understanding" of Ebrahimi's plight and thus "unwitting prejudice against him...

Austria’s president has sworn in a new government amid protests against the far right’s prominent role in the cabinet. At the weekend, the new chancellor, Sebastian Kurz of the Austrian People’s party, struck a deal with the Freedom party, a nationalist group founded after the second world war by former members of the Nazi party, now headed by Heinz-Christian Strache.

The tradition of...
