Israel and Egypt in the age of al-Sisi Categories: Egypt, Israel     Author: Amotz Asa-El

Four years after pan-Arab upheaval shook its political foundations, Egypt is treading new economic, political, and diplomatic paths while increasingly harmonising with the Jewish state next door. The 2011 fall of Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year autocracy was followed by three successors within less t

Will Khamenei even approve the nuclear deal? Categories: Iran     Author: Mehdi Khalaji

In a televised speech delivered August 17, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei commented on the P5+1 nuclear agreement in sceptical terms, noting that the decision about whether to approve the deal is still unclear in both Washington and Teheran. As he has done since July, the Supreme Leader also pointedly avoid

Syria's Five Conflicts

Syria's Five Conflicts Categories: Syria     Author: Jonathan Spyer

As the civil war over the ruins of Syria grinds on into its fifth year, the fighting seems nowhere near an end. Indeed, there is no longer a single war taking place in the country. Rather, as Syria physically divides into separate entities, so the conflict, too, further subdivides, spawning new conf

A Done Deal?

A Done Deal? Categories: Iran, United States     Author: Robert Satloff

A resolution to disapprove the Iran agreement may have substantial political reverberations but limited practical impact. It would not override President Obama's authority to enter into the agreement. Nor would it restrict his authority to participate in most aspects of enforcing the agreement. Inde

Editorial: The Dilemma of Terrorism Within Categories: Israel, Palestinians, Terrorism     Author: Colin Rubenstein

Israelis and friends of Israel alike have, appropriately, come together in expressing profound shame and disgust over the firebombing of two Palestinian homes in the West Bank village of Duma late last month, which claimed the life of a toddler and his father. This came on top of a stabbing attack a

Jewish Terrorism in Israel Categories: Israel, Terrorism, Updates

In an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg in The Atlantic in May, President Obama suggested that the Iranian regime's racist and antisemitic worldviews don't "preclude [them] from being rational," or from "being interested in survival." Obama acknowledged the regime's explicit antisemitism, yet then pro

Noted and Quoted - August 2015 Categories: Australasia, Media/ Academia, Middle East    

Columnist Rowan Dean blasted the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel as "anti-Semitic" and a "grotesque fraud", pointing out its hypocrisies. Hypocrisies include boycotting "Jewish businesses... and even a Jewish theatre" in this country "on the pretence of supporting th

Yes, there is an alternative Categories: International Security, Iran, United States     Author: David Horovitz

Three months ago, defending what he called the "historic" framework understandings reached with Iran in Lausanne over its rogue nuclear program, US President Barack Obama planted a false and highly unpleasant insinuation. "It's no secret," the President declared in an April 2 address, "that the Isra

AIR New Zealand: Turtle Bay Dreams Categories: Australasia, Middle East, United Nations     Author: Miriam Bell

In theory, the United Nations is the epitome of effective diplomatic activity and relations. Yet, in practice, it is, all too frequently, an epicentre of vitriolic rhetoric, wilful misinformation, and unfortunate end results. There is prestige and status attached to seats on the various UN councils
