The Israeli Labor Party and Its Palestinian “Partner”

editor 28 July 2018

By Prof. Shmuel Sandler.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 891, July 11, 2018.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The low standings of the Zionist Camp list in public opinion polls floated a new demand for change at the top. As a result, the Labor party, the Zionist Camp’s senior partner, is again challenging its newly elected chairman, Avi Gabai. Despite replacing its leaders with each election campaign, Labor has never made a comeback to govern Israel. Because it is identified with Ramallah’s demands in any future settlement, Labor has suffered electoral punishment. [Picture top right: Christians for Israel International]. (more…)

The Hysteria over the Polish Law

editor 4 April 2018

By Maj. Gen. (res.) Gershon Hacohen.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 785, April 3, 2018

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The essence of Zionism as a national liberation movement is the Jewish People’s return to history as a sovereign actor – a nation among the nations. Insofar as the Holocaust is not the justification for its sovereign existence, Israel’s response to the Polish law forbidding Poles from being accused of involvement in Nazi crimes must take into account pragmatic considerations in the changing political arena.

Palestinian Settler-Colonialism

editor 7 September 2017

By Dr. Alex Joffe.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 577, September 3, 2017

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The concept of “settler colonialism” has been applied with almost unique vehemence against Israel. But the fact that Jews are the indigenous population of the Southern Levant can be proved with ease. In contrast, historical and genealogical evidence shows Palestinians descend primarily from three primary groups: Muslim invaders, Arab immigrants, and local converts to Islam. (more…)

editor 27 August 2017

By Raphael Ahren.. Netanyahu was to travel in August to Swiss city where Herzl in 1897 ‘founded the Jewish state.’ But poor planning has doomed the celebration, and recriminations are flying.

Israel Coming Back to Africa, Africa Going Back to Israel

editor 23 June 2016

By Joe Nam, Media Specialist Christians for Israel Uganda.. In a way, Israel and Africa behave like estranged lovers, having sparked off a whirlwind romance in the 1950’s, culminating into a full-blown relationship in the 1960’s.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently said that Israel is coming back to Africa and will do so in “a big way”.
