Rabbi Sacks on the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS)

editor 2 March 2017

By Rabbi Jonathan Sacks.. The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel is dangerously wrong because beneath the surface it’s an attempt to delegtimize Israel as a prelude to its elimination. No Jew and no humanitarian can stand by and see that happen. Let me explain why. Watch the video below. (more…)

A New Approach to Israeli-Palestinian Peacemaking

editor 4 January 2017

By Arik Elman.. Some of my friends — even intelligent friends — say that, however unpleasant, a Borat-esque “running of the Jew” must now be enacted, because we need a reminder that the two-state solution is the only way to be rid of the Palestinian problem, as we can’t absorb Palestinians into our state, can’t rule them and can’t deport them.

ADC rates global antisemitism

editor 26 December 2016

y J-Wire Staff.. The Anti-Defamation Commission has ranked UNESCO’s denial of Jewish history in Jerusalem as the most prominent example of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel occurrence in 2016. In its list, the organisation also includes the UN’s continuous condemnation of Israel, the Iranian’s government repeated threats of destruction against Israel and Holocaust denial, the Palestinian authority’s incitement and violence,  and the outbreak of anti-Semitism in the U.K Labour party.

France’s Politician Dhimmis

editor 2 December 2016

By Yves Mamou.. “Moreover, it is puzzling and disturbing that France adopts a double standard in relation to Israel, while ignoring 200 territorial conflicts currently taking place around the world, including those taking place right on its doorstep.” — Response of Israel’s Foreign Ministry to France’s new labeling regulations. In the Ukraine, a few sanctions were imposed by France and EU, but there was never any labeling of food or cosmetic products. (more…)


For Israel, the Task is to Work Even Harder to Keep Old Friends and Reach Out to New Ones

editor 23 November 2016

By Eran Lerman.. Israel’s continued success in global affairs will disprove the deluded claim that the Jewish state is isolated in the world. It’s also the right strategy. Arthur Herman’s essay, “Everybody Loves Israel,” comes as a breath of fresh air amid the pummelings being administered by the United Nations and the BDS movement and the dirge-like laments of friends about the Jewish state’s growing isolation as it courts a fate worse even than South Africa’s apartheid.

Beware Antisemitism’s Third Rail

editor 26 October 2016

By Gary C. Gambill.. In an address before the EU parliament last month, Conference of European Rabbis president Pinchas Goldschmidt said that European Jews feel like they are standing in the middle of a railroad track with trains bearing down on them from both directions. One train is “radical Islam and Islamic terrorism,” he said; the other is “the antisemitism of old Europe, the extreme Right.” Both “are existential threats” for European Jews, he warned. “Both trains have to be halted before it’s too late.” (more…)


Our World: The American Inquisition

editor 8 September 2016

By Caroline B. Glick.. The cancer of Jew hatred has taken over the body of US academia. This week we caught a glimpse of the advanced state of the disease in an email sent by a Syracuse University professor to an Israeli filmmaker in June (2016). As The Atlantic reported, on June 24, 2016,  Syracuse professor Gail Hamner disinvited Israeli filmmaker Shimon Dotan from screening his film at the university’s film festival, scheduled for March 2017.

Why the BDS Movement is Destroying a Future Palestinian State

editor 7 September 2016

By Fred Maroun.. Israel could have played by Arab rules and deported all Arabs in the land it occupied, but it did not. Precisely because Israel respected the human rights of Arabs, and despite its own self-interest, Israel gave the Palestinians a platform from which to seek the destruction of Israel. One can only hope that the Palestinians, like Egypt and Jordan, will soon decide to live in peace with a neighbor which turned out to be far better in the way it treats Palestinians than the Palestinians’ own “Arab brothers” — not all that bad, after all. One can only hope that Palestinian leaders will start promoting a culture of peace rather than a culture of hate. (more…)


Campus Watchdog: Jewish Students Single Largest Target of Systematic Suppression of Civil Rights at American Universities (Interview)

editor 28 July 2016

By Lea Speyer.. Jewish college students are the largest university population “coming under systematic attack,” with an increasing number seeing their civil rights infringed upon, the head of a campus watchdog group told The Algemeiner on Tuesday (July 26, 2016). Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, co-founder of the AMCHA Initiative — which combats, monitors and documents antisemitism at institutions of higher education in America — made the comment following the release of a shocking new report revealing the dramatic rise of antisemitic activity across more than 100 US college campuses between January and June 2016.
