Netanyahu’s Master Class on British TV

editor 9 November 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. Whatever you think about Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu, this is a master class in how to present the case, not just for Israel but for rational western policy on the manifold and gathering threats to the world within the Middle East – of which the overwhelming threat by far is posed by Iran. Watch how he calmly copes with the usual boiler-plate prejudices about the Palestinians and then makes the points that so badly need to be made to a British audience – such as pointing out that Israel has helped save many British lives. Not a fact that the British often hear. Watch the video below.  (more…)


Truth in the Joke of CNN and BBC

editor 10 July 2017

By Paula R. Stern.. Old joke that’s gone around and around and each time it comes around, I think that as much as it’s a joke, it really isn’t. This is very much how Israelis are forced to live; forever proving that we are not the ones who started this fight – not in 1948 and not this week where more than a dozen mortars have fallen on Israeli territory (and CNN responded with headlines saying that our forces had attacked Syrian targets).

The one above and the one asking me to explain how more than 100 Palestinians have been killed while no Israelis have died. Non-political? Yeah…  (more…)

Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem- KKL, Kerry, Archbishop of Canterbury

editor 5 July 2013
By Sheila Raviv.. Shabbat Shalom to everyone! Summer has seriously arrived with the usual searing hot days and wonderful cool Jerusalem nights. The Presidential Conference has been and gone, with all the usual lauding and complaints depending upon which side of the political divide one sits. We have actually been in a whirlwind of visitors, all of them wonderful and welcome, with little time for our usual activities although I managed stosnatch some time and go with Rachel to Shouk Ramle to find all sorts of things we probably didn’t need but bought because they were so cheap and the weather was so hot and we wanted to get out quickly before the masses of human beings arrived!
