The Last Word: Opening Eyes Categories: Australasia, Interfaith Dialogue, Israel     Author: Jeremy Jones

When any of my discussions turned to the subject of the current tensions and prospect for a better future for Israelis and Palestinians, condemnations of the obsessive Israel-bashers in the West were passionate and consistent and often contained the same advice - let people exposed to crazed anti-Is

Essay: Antisemitism as Political Tool Categories: Antisemitism, Asia     Author: Jon Emont

Malaysia is in political and economic crisis as it has been, now, for many months, due to a huge and still unresolved corruption scandal featuring a mysterious US$700 million that was transferred into a bank account belonging to the country's Prime Minister Najib Razak.

The Origins of the BDS War Categories: Anti-Zionism, Israel, NGOs, Palestinians     Author: Gerald Steinberg

Judging from media reports, anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) campaigns have been getting increasing attention around the world. Academics, musicians and athletes are pressured into boycotting Israel, and those falsely accusing Israel of violating international law are speaking up

Tunnel Vision

Tunnel Vision Categories: Israel, Palestinians     Author: Amos Yadlin

For Israel, the question regarding the Hamas tunnels from Gaza into Israel is not only what action to take, but also the nature of the confrontation that is sure to follow such action. The repeated rounds of fighting in the Gaza Strip forced on Israel by Hamas since 2008 have not achieved the neces

BDS on the Outer Categories: Anti-Zionism, United States     Author: Ben Cohen

2016 may well be remembered as the year that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement targeting Israel finally died its death - in a clinical sense, at least.

Israel struggles to land the Leviathan Categories: Israel, Updates     Author: Or Avi-Guy

Five years ago a massive offshore reserve of natural gas - appropriately named Leviathan - was discovered approximately 170 km. off the Israeli coast, approximately 4.5 km. underwater. Since then, attempts to tap into the gas field have stalled, as new challenges emerged at each step of the way.

Biblio File: Rabin's Revenge Categories: Israel, Palestinians     Author: Seth Mandel

Over the past two decades, though, something strange has happened. The two camps have switched sides. Israel's left bitterly credits Rabin's assassin, Yigal Amir, with victory; the two-state solution is dead, they say, and its death throes began that night in 1995. Meanwhile, many of the leaders on
