Jewish Voice for Peace’s Hidden Agenda

editor 6 June 2017

By Rebecca Zagorsky.. When starting a political movement, choosing the right name is perhaps the most important step. We tend to make snap decisions about whether or not to support an organization based on what its name implies. The danger, of course, is that an organization can misrepresent itself with false connotations. Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) has done just that, because the group does not represent the views of most Jews — and it does not stand for peace.

Bigotry Is Not Only Free But Costly

editor 6 May 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. The antisemitism crisis rolls on. Ken Livingstone has doubled down on his remarks about Hitler and Zionism. Members of the National Union of Students have been outed for sending offensive tweets about Jews. Campus meetings regularly spout hideous lies and libels about Israel. Many of us are horrified that these things are being allowed to be said at all. They are racist, prejudiced, bigoted, offensive and hurtful. Views like these should be utterly beyond the pale. Really? (more…)


Why Don’t Supporters of Palestinians Care About PA Abuses?

editor 3 April 2017

By Mitchell Bard..On college campuses and beyond, support for the Palestinians has been portrayed as a human rights campaign. While the antisemitic BDS movement is — according to its founders and leaders — a crusade to make Israel disappear, it has attracted many naïve supporters who believe ostracizing Israel will somehow help the Palestinians achieve independence. BDS has been an unmitigated failure, but it has shielded the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Hamas from criticism for their human rights abuses. (more…)


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…)
