In Israel, as anywhere, objectivity, balance, multiple voices are critical to credible journalism Categories: Australasia, Israel, Media/ Academia, Op-eds     Author: Mark Leibler

Former Middle East correspondent for The Australian John Lyons is right that objectivity doesn't come easy when reporting from Israel (Media, 31/7). His explanation for the claim, however, is not that information is harder to obtain in a conflict zone or that agendas are often opaque, but that Lyon

Praise from a Palestinian PM

Praise from a Palestinian PM Categories: Israel, Palestinians     Author: Eran Lerman

Within recent weeks, interactions between Israel and the PA at the ministerial level have offered proof of the value of current Israeli strategy towards the Palestinian population. First came the positive meeting between PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah and Israeli Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon, dur

The Match between India and Israel

The Match between India and Israel Categories: India, Israel     Author: Jonathan Spyer

The recent two-day visit of Narendra Modi to Israel, the first ever by an Indian Prime Minister, has been depicted as heralding a new strategic partnership between New Delhi and Jerusalem. Indeed, simply by taking place at all, it represented an upgrade of the relationship.

Scribblings: The other story of Ziv Hospital Categories: Israel, Syria     Author: Tzvi Fleischer

Ziv Hospital is of international interest primarily because it has been the major site at which wounded Syrians, who cross the Golan border fleeing the Syrian civil war, are given medical treatment in Israel. While today other hospitals are taking up more of the burden of these patients, Ziv remains

Messages and Metal Detectors

Messages and Metal Detectors Categories: Israel, Palestinians     Author: Shmuel Rosner

The issue is not security. Israel is the one concerned with security - but the other side is not. The other side sees the terror attack at the compound as an opportunity to further its claim against Israeli presence in Jerusalem. If you remove all the "settlers" - that is, all Israelis - and all "so

After Liberation, Will Mosul Fall to Iran? Categories: Iran, Iraq     Author: Michael J. Totten

For the first time ever, Shi'ite mosques operate inside the city. Shi'ite slogans appear on posters and are spray-painted on walls. You can now hear martial Shi'ite religious music on the streets. "We proudly entered Tikrit and Al Ojah and we will arrive in Fallujah soon," go some of the lyrics. Man

Terror and Consequences

Terror and Consequences Categories: Israel, Palestinians     Author: Ely Karmon

Arab Muslims used the sacred Al-Aqsa Mosque compound to prepare and stage a terrorist attack. They tried to take refuge in the Mosque after killing the policemen knowing that it would be even a greater incident if the Police entered the holy Mosque to try to arrest them. They didn't see any religiou

Israeli authorities had, quite reasonably, installed metal detectors at the entrance to the Temple Mount, where the mosque sits, to prevent a security failure of the kind that occurred on July 14, when terrorists shot and killed two Israeli Druze policemen using guns smuggled into the mosque compoun

An Israeli Macron?

An Israeli Macron? Categories: Israel     Author: Amotz Asa-El

The Labor party dominated Israeli politics during the Jewish state's first three decades, and the Zionist movement for another 17 years before that, but has not held power since 2001. It has now been taken over by a chairman who had only joined the party a few months ago, and also conceded to having

Amidst concern over North Korea's ICBM launch, Iranian missile shows Iran heading the same way Categories: Asia, International Security, Iran, Updates     Author: Sharyn Mittelman

The spotlight has justifiably been on North Korea for conducting another test on July 28 of an ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic Missile) which could reach Australia or most of the US West Coast. However a day earlier Iran also tested a missile, which received less attention, but which is equally co
