editor 18 October 2017

By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik.. Palestinians reject “normalization” with Israel:
Palestinian artists warned  they would be “expelled” from union if they participated in Israeli cultural festival in Jerusalem. “The union rejects the participation of any Palestinian artist in the rally, and it will expel any artist who is proven to have participated in any ceremony or festival whose goal is to create normalization with the occupation”.

“Has Truth Lost All Meaning”? For Israel-Haters, Yes

editor 13 October 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. Thomas Suarez is an Israel-hater. He is about to embark on a tour of America. He recently concluded a tour of Scotland. He has spoken at universities in the United Kingdom. A book he wrote, published last year, which vilifies and defames the state of Israel and which references and has been endorsed by other Israel-haters, was honoured with a launch inside a meeting room in the House of Lords. [Photo top right: Thomas Suarez described the creation of Israel as a ‘racist’, ‘fascist’ endeavour, and linked the ‘cult’ of Zionism to the Nazis, while speaking at an event organised by SOAS Palestine Society].

You’re offended? Oy vey!

editor 10 October 2017

By Peter Arnold.. If your ancestors, dear reader, were Europeans of any sort, know that they threw us out of their countries, or stood aside while we were persecuted, evicted and murdered. So emulate us and get a life! As individuals we have not spent 3,500 years wallowing in self-pity. We get on with it and so should you…writes Peter Arnold.

The Palestinians’ “Jewish Problem”

editor 27 September 2017

By Bassam Tawil.. According to the Palestinians, the two US envoys seem fully to have endorsed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s positions instead of representing the interests of the US. Why? Because they are Jews, and as such, their loyalty is to Israel before the US. Perhaps this view is a projection of what many Muslims would do if the circumstances were reversed. (more…)


Britain’s Alarming Antisemitism Problem

editor 26 September 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. In 2002, on the BBC TV show Question Time, I was accused of dual loyalty in front of a jeering studio audience. My crime had been to defend Israel against demonization and double standards by both the audience and other members of the panel. At that time I had visited Israel only twice in my life, two years previously. No matter. [Photo top right: Massacre of Jews; woodcut, 1493](more…)


Hello Refugees!

editor 25 September 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. Tuvia Tenenbom, that most acute and incendiary observer of what’s festering beneath the surface of polite society, has turned his attention to Germany’s “refugees”. To his surprise and no little dismay, what he has found out is not so much about these migrants but about Germany itself, and it isn’t pretty at all. (more…)

editor 16 September 2017

By Josefin Dolsten.. Swedish Jews face antisemitism both from the nationalist far right as well as the far left, whose strong criticism of Israel sometimes veers into antisemitism.

When great institutions lie

editor 16 September 2017

By Caroline Glick.. Over the past week (week 36, 2017), two major US institutions have produced studies that discredit their names and reputations as credible organizations. Their actions are important in and of themselves. But they also point to a disturbing trend in the US in which the credibility of important American institutions is being undermined from within by their members who pursue narrow partisan or ideological agendas in the name of their institutions.

editor 17 August 2017

By Andrew Friedman.. Palestinians and Arab MKs declared ‘victory’ Tuesday (July 25, 2017) as Israel reversed security measures at the Temple Mount, and said their struggle for control over the compound also extends to the Western Wall.
