Europa Europa: Paris' unintended consequences

Europa Europa: Paris' unintended consequences Categories: Europe, Israel, Palestinians     Author: Douglas Davis

Pity Francois Hollande. The French President's country is beset by terrorism, his overseas military missions - in Libya, Mali and Syria - are in tatters, his labour unions are in full revolt, while his personal popularity ratings are at a record low of 13%. How to placate his domestic Muslim populat

Scribblings: The Gaza "siege" myth lives on Categories: Palestinians     Author: Tzvi Fleischer

Perhaps on some level it isn't surprising that it still happens - though, on another, it is nonetheless shocking, because it is so easily disproven. I'm speaking about how Hamas and other Palestinian groups like to present Israel's blockade of military items into Gaza as a "siege" - and too many peo

The Nick Xenophon Team (NXT), having secured more Senate primary votes in South Australia than the ALP at the 2013 election, will likely achieve three or even four Senate seats there this time. Running candidates in all SA electorates, it is also slightly favoured to gain the lower house seat of May

The awful Israeli-Hezbollah conflict to come

The awful Israeli-Hezbollah conflict to come Categories: Israel, Lebanon     Author: Willy Stern

Hezbollah has a nasty collection of more than 130,000 rockets, missiles, and mortars aimed at Israel. This is a bigger arsenal than all NATO countries (except the United States) combined. Why, a reasonable person might wonder, does Hezbollah need an offensive arsenal bigger than that of all Western

Biblio File: The Heirs of Jabotinsky

Biblio File: The Heirs of Jabotinsky Categories: Israel, Palestinians     Author: Jonathan Rynhold

Publicly, the Zionist Right was united by territorial maximalism. Yet Shindler demonstrates that, unlike the rest of the Right, Jabotinsky considered supporting the 1938 Peel Plan which called for partition of British Mandatory Palestine; though he eventually came down against it for practical rathe
