The Malevolent Guest At London’s Balfour Dinner

editor 7 November 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. When Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn refused to attend this week’s dinner in London to mark the centenary of the Balfour Declaration, a dinner to which Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been invited as the guest of Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May, Corbyn said Labour’s shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry would attend in his place.

editor 30 October 2017

In this interview with Rowan Dean and Ross Cameron on Sky News Australia, recorded on September 27 2017, I discuss multicultural confusions in the west, the Arab war against Israel and why so many American Jews are losing the plot. (The sound quality improves after the first few minutes.) Watch the video below.  (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].

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…)

The Sea Change In American Jewry

editor 18 September 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. I have often written about the current dismaying trajectory of the American Jewish community. With some three quarters of them identifying with the universalist, left-wing mindset, both in religious and secular life, they are positioning themselves on the wrong side of the war of civilisation being waged against the west from within while their children are progressing from indifference towards Israel to outright hostility. So much is the common source of much anguished discussion amongst those who care about this decline. (more…)

The Slaughter Of The Salomon Family

editor 29 August 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. So now the non-stop Palestinian Arab incitement against Israel has resulted in yet more Palestinian barbarism. The Salomon family had gathered for a Friday night (July 21, 2017) Shabbat dinner, celebrating the birth of a grandchild, in their home in the Israeli settlement of Halamish. A 19 year-old Palestinian burst in armed with a large knife and began stabbing members of the family. (more…)

The Saudi Islamist Conundrum

editor 12 August 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. Modern Islamic Warfare, a monograph by Middle East analyst and former Pentagon staffer Dr Harold Rhode, is essential reading. You can download it  here. Concisely and clearly it explains the Islamic world, the confusions it causes amongst those who don’t understand it and why, as a result, the west is being defeated by it.

Denial: The Labour Party’s Antisemitism

editor 10 July 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. David Hirsh’s must-see video, Whitewashed: Antisemitism in the Labour Party (which you can view below) starts with a truly shocking clip of Jeremy Corbyn speaking. Having referred to the profoundly anti-Jewish, murderous terrorist organisations Hezbollah and Hamas as his “friends”, he says (of either or both): “The idea that an organisation that is dedicated towards the good of the Palestinian people and bringing about long term peace and social justice, and political justice, in the whole region should be labelled a terrorist organisation by the British government is a big, big historical mistake”.
