Europa Europa: French Follies

Europa Europa: French Follies Categories: Europe, Israel, Middle East, Palestinians     Author: Douglas Davis

Or that it has learned to cope with its five-million-strong Muslim population. Little wonder, then, that it has resorted t

Scribblings: Was Resolution 2334 anti-Israel?

Scribblings: Was Resolution 2334 anti-Israel? Categories: Israel, Palestinians     Author: Tzvi Fleischer

Defenders of controversial UN Security Council Resolution 2334 - passed with the apparent connivance of the departing US Obama Administration on Dec. 23 - claim it was "not anti-Israel" but only "anti-settlement."

Deconstruction Zone: Demographic Doomsday for Israel? Categories: Israel, Palestinians     Author: Gregg Roman

Critics of Israel love to exploit Jewish fears and anxieties. The most extreme resort to Holocaust inversion, boycotts, blacklists, and other singling-out methods reminiscent of Europe's antisemitic past. US Secretary of State John Kerry likes to wave around the threat of Israel's demographic extinc

Fatah fails to give itself a boost Categories: Palestinians     Author: Ben Lynfield

Fatah, challenged by Hamas on the one hand and Israeli settlement expansion on the other, was badly in need of a boost as it headed into its seventh congress, which ran from November 29 through December 4 in Ramallah.
