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." It was merely critical of the policies of the current Israeli government, they say. T

Critics of Israel love to exploit Jewish fears and anxieties.

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.

And as farfetched as this may sound, they really believed in the Pro
