What apartheid?

editor 13 September 2018

By Smadar Bat Adam.. Despite what the Arab Higher Monitor Committee would have you believe with its decision to organize protests against Israel’s “racism” and “apartheid,” ever since 2009, the right-wing governments of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have led to unprecedented advancements in the quality of life of the country’s non-Jewish citizens. This important process is still in full swing. That is a fact. [Photo top right: Engineers are working underground, building a new set of sewage pipes in Netanya. On Sep 6, 2011.

US Ambassador Haley Rips Arab, Islamic States for Posturing at UN on Palestinian Question

editor 27 July 2018

By Ben Cohen.. Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, delivered a hard hitting speech to Tuesday’s meeting (July 24, 2018) of the Security Council on the Middle East, questioning the fundamental commitment of Arab states to securing progress for the Palestinians. Haley argued that if solidarity with the Palestinians was to be judged by the volume of words expended on the issue in the halls of the UN, “one would come away with an extremely distorted picture.” [Photo top right: US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley speaks at an emergency General Assembly meeting in United Nations headquartes in New York City to vote on Jerusalem’s situation on December 21, 2017.

editor 21 July 2018

By Leah Rosenberg.. When 10 month old Shalhevet was murdered by a “Palestinian” Arab sniper in 2001 in Hebron, a memorial was built for the Jewish baby. Because Israel chooses life.

Her father was walking with her in the stroller to the park when she was shot and killed. Shalhevet’s father was also injured in the attack. Why were they targeted? (more…)

170 Syrians Were Killed During Three Days This Week — Without Any News Coverage

editor 26 May 2018

By Elder of Ziyon.. On Sunday (May 13, 2018), 114 Arabs were killed. On Monday (May 14, 2018), 30 more. On Tuesday (May 15, 2018), 26 more.

But the media didn’t think that Arabs dying was an interesting story — because those people had the misfortune of being killed by other Arabs. If they had been killed by Jews, then suddenly there would be interest.

The Future of Greek-Israeli Relations

editor 12 April 2018

By Dr. George N. Tzogopoulos.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 788, April 8, 2018

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: In July 2010, then Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou visited Jerusalem and met his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu. A few weeks later Netanyahu traveled to Athens and held discussions with Papandreou. The long-term significance of those visits could not be acknowledged at that time. But almost eight years later, it is now clear that those talks were a catalyst for the rapprochement that has occurred between two countries that have had a difficult relationship for decades. Greece and Israel are growing ever closer by establishing a strategic partnership and exploring ways to further deepen it. [Photo top right: Benjamin Netanyahu and George Papandreou on a cruise near the isle of Poros, 17 August 2010, photo via Flickr CC].

Palestinians ‘Peoplehood’ Based on a Big Lie

editor 11 April 2018

By Eli E. Hertz.. The Palestinians claim that they are an ancient and indigenous people fails to stand up to historic scrutiny. Most Palestinian Arabs were newcomers to British Mandate Palestine. Until the 1967 Six-Day War made it expedient for Arabs to create a Palestinian peoplehood, local Arabs simply considered themselves part of the ‘great Arab nation’ or ‘southern Syrians.’

“Repeat a lie often enough and people will begin to believe it.”
Nazi propaganda master Joseph Goebbels

“All [that Palestinians] can agree on as a community is what they want to destroy, not what they want to build.”
New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman

There is no age-old Palestinian people. Most so-called Palestinians are relative newcomers to the Land of Israel. (more…)

Israel Puts Iran On Notice – The warning that the Al Kibar strike sends out

editor 5 April 2018

By Ari Lieberman.. Israel’s recent disclosure that its air force reduced Syria’s Al Kibar atomic bomb facility to rubble came across as one of the worst kept secrets in modern history. International media outlets had already published detailed accounts of the successful strike and even former president George W. Bush made reference to the raid in his memoirs. The reasons for the formal acknowledgement now, 11 years after the fact are threefold. First, as already noted, everyone and their uncle knew Israel was responsible so there was no point in maintaining continued silence on the issue. (more…)

What Is a “Refugee”? The Jews from Morocco versus the Palestinians from Israel

editor 15 March 2018

By Alan M. Dershowitz.. The Arab exodus from Israel in 1948 was the direct result of a genocidal war declared against the newly established Jewish state by all of its Arab neighbors, including the Arabs of Israel. Approximately 700,000 local Arabs were displaced. Approximately the same number of Jews were displaced from their Arab homelands during this period. Nearly all of them could trace their heritage back thousands of years, well before the Muslims and Arabs became the dominant population.

editor 20 December 2017

By The Straits Times.. UNITED NATIONS (REUTERS) – The 193-member United Nations General Assembly will hold a rare emergency special session on Thursday (Dec 21, 2017) at the request of Arab and Muslim states on US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Palestinian UN envoy Riyad Mansour said the General Assembly would vote on a draft resolution calling for Trump’s declaration to be withdrawn, which was vetoed by the United States in the 15-member UN Security Council on Monday (Dec 18, 2017). [Photo top right: Palestine’s Ambassador to the United Nations Riyad Mansour (centre) walks through the room before a vote on a draft resolution that would reject Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Dec 18, 2017, at UN Headquarters in New York. Photo: AFP].  (more…)
