Worried About Jew-Baiters? Give It Straight Back To Them

editor 4 December 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. In the Diaspora, people are aghast at rampant antisemitism and Israel-bashing and dismayed over the failure to halt its apparently inexorable rise. In Britain, the parliamentary group on antisemitism heard evidence last week that anti-Jewish bigotry is now entrenched in many British universities. Student officers have used the Twitter hashtag #Jew while discussing wealth, and the swastika is now seen on campus as a “casual symbol of fun.” (more…)

As unity process goes nowhere fast, Hamas leader’s tactic will be to blame PA

editor 30 November 2017

By Avi Issacharoff.. Gaza’s Yahya Sinwar, purportedly determined to seek Palestinian reconciliation ‘for the sake of the children,’ wants to be able to say that he tried but Abbas scuppered the process. On instructions from Egypt, delegates from the various Palestinian groups showed up in Cairo this week to discuss the “historic” reconciliation agreement between Hamas and Fatah. Almost everyone was there, from the highest-ranking officials from both main groups to representatives of organizations so minor that people wondered why they’d been invited. When Egypt’s General Intelligence Directorate, headed by Minister Khaled Fawzy, issues invitations, nobody can refuse.

Children’s Book ‘P Is For Palestine,’ Which Hails ‘Intifada,’ Draws Ire of Manhattan Mothers

editor 28 November 2017

By Algemeiner Staff.. Controversy erupted in a Facebook group of Upper East Side mothers this week after one member posted an advertisement for a reading of her new children’s book titled, P Is For Palestine. The illustrated text, authored by Dr. Golbarg Bashi, includes a line that says, “I is for Intifada, Intifada is Arabic for rising up for what is right, if you are a kid or grownup!” “Intifada” is an Arabic word meaning “tremor” that is most commonly associated around the world with two violent Palestinian uprisings against Israel in recent decades that included numerous bombing, shooting and stabbing attacks.

Mahmoud Abbas’s Guardian op-ed illustrates the dishonesty of the ‘Palestinian narrative’

editor 20 November 2017

By Adam Levick.. The Guardian’s efforts to amplify the ‘injustice’ of Israel’s continued existence in the context of the Balfour Centennial went into high gear yesterday (November 1, 2017), as they published an op-ed  by PA President Mahmoud Abbas that included nearly every distortion and lie within what’s known as the ‘Palestinian narrative’.

Here are some of Abbas’s claims in his op-ed (Britain must atone for the Balfour declaration – and 100 years of suffering, November 1, 2017). (more…)

The Daily Californian Refuses to Publish My Response to an Anti-Semitic Op-Ed

editor 10 November 2017

By Alan M. Dershowitz.. On November 3 (2017), The Daily Californian published an op-ed by Matthew Taylor, explicitly accusing me of having “blood on his [my] hands” and being “culpable for the perpetuation of…[Israeli] atrocities.” The article was worse than the cartoon itself. But when I tried to write a factual response to his false accusations, the Daily Californian categorically refused to publish it, thus demonstrating their obvious bias. I have attached my response here so it can be widely read. Taylor crosses his own line into bigotry. (more…)

Balfour’s greatest of gifts

editor 2 November 2017

By Caroline Glick.. This week Israel’s judo team was harassed and discriminated against by UAE (United Arab Emirates, ed.) officials when they tried to board a flight from Tel Aviv to Istanbul, en route to Abu Dhabi to participate in the Judo Grand Slam competition. Apropos of nothing, UAE told the Israelis they would only be permitted to enter the UAE from Amman. And once they finally arrived at the competition, they were prohibited from competing under their national flag. [Photo top right: Israeli Tal Flicker at World Championships Budapest (Hun), 2017.

Do you recognize this man?

editor 2 November 2017

By Paula R. Stern.. My oldest daughter called me and told me that there was a man speaking to a bunch of tourists and from what she could hear, what he was saying was anything but complimentary. She asked if I wanted to come and I told her to ask them. I’d be happy…  Amazingly enough, they agreed. There were two parts of this discussion – each too long for one post and so I have decided to divide this into two parts – them and “us”. (more…)

“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].
