Olympic Disdain Categories: Israel, Terrorism, Updates     Author: Sharyn Mittelman

This year marks forty years since the ‘Munich Massacre' - when during the 1972 Munich Olympics, Palestinian terrorists disguised as athletes attacked the dormitory housing the Israeli delegation and took Israeli athletes, coaches and officials hostages.  By the end of the ordeal, the terr

Thailand's slow-burn insurgency heats up

Thailand's slow-burn insurgency heats up Categories: Asia, Terrorism     Author: Zachary Abuza

On March 31, a series of coordinated bombings, the likes that have not been seen since 2007, rocked the Southern Thai cities of Yala and Hat Yai. These attacks were spectacular and garnered both domestic and international media attention. While a wakeup call to the international community and the T

Toulouse school's decision to cut security may have implications on Australia

Toulouse school's decision to cut security may have implications on Australia Categories: Antisemitism, Australasia, Europe, Media/ Academia, Terrorism, Updates     Author: Daniel Meyerowitz-Katz

In this post last month, I argued that the Jewish community in Australia does have the unfortunate need for security at Jewish schools, which remain a target for terrorists, a statement that I later affirmed after the Toulouse attacks. This was to rebut statements made by former Australian Jewish Ne

Toulouse gunman lone wolf?

Toulouse gunman lone wolf? Categories: Antisemitism, Europe, Terrorism, Updates     Author: Sharyn Mittelman

Following the tragic shootings in Toulouse last week that resulted in the deaths of a Rabbi, three children and three soldiers by a Frenchman of Algerian dissent Mohammed Merah, many in the media have been quick to paint Merah as a ‘lone wolf' and his actions as an isolated incident, the actio

On Toulouse shootings, Sydney Morning Herald editorial writers fail to read their own coverage

On Toulouse shootings, Sydney Morning Herald editorial writers fail to read their own coverage Categories: Antisemitism, Europe, Far Right, Islamic Extremism, Media/ Academia, Terrorism, Updates     Author: Daniel Meyerowitz-Katz

The Sydney Morning Herald editorialised this morning on the possible identity of the Toulouse shooter and pondered what group he may have been affiliated to. Curiously, these questions seem to have been answered just three pages earlier. ...As to whether he [the shooter] is a deranged loner

Terror attack on Jewish school in France a stark reminder of antisemitic threat Categories: Antisemitism, Australasia, Europe, Far Right, International Jewry, Islamic Extremism, Terrorism, Updates     Author: Daniel Meyerowitz-Katz

Last month, I wrote in defence of the security concerns of Australia's Jewish community. With a heavy heart, I must note that these concerns have been unfortunately vindicated once again. Last night, a shooting attack outside Ozar Hatorah, a Jewish school in Toulouse, killed much-loved schoolteacher

The facts and the hearsay on Israel

The facts and the hearsay on Israel Categories: Israel, Op-eds, Palestinians, Terrorism     Author: Ahron Shapiro

Terror sponsorship has been around for as long as terrorism. It's a phenomenon that has been widely recognised, which allows a group to use terrorism as a tool while insulating themselves from direct responsibility. As an added benefit, in some cases it allows for additional logistical possibilitie

Peace through falsehood

Peace through falsehood Categories: Israel, Palestinians, Terrorism, Updates     Author: Allon Lee

Context is king and without it the most outrageous slurs can be given legitimacy. Unfortunately, some pro-Palestinian activists are prone to only offer facts in isolation to give their false allegations the air of authenticity and aid the ongoing campaign to delegitimise Israel. The most recent ex

Bangkok terror attack - a pattern of failures?

Bangkok terror attack - a pattern of failures? Categories: Iran, Terrorism, Updates     Author: Sharyn Mittelman

Yesterday there was another failed act of terrorism in Bangkok, likely to be linked to Iran and Hezbollah.  This latest failed terrorist attack follows attacks on Israeli embassy personnel in India and Georgia a day earlier (see previous blog post). It also follows a string of attempted terrori

Israeli Embassy attacks - What do they mean? Categories: Iran, Israel, Terrorism, Updates     Author: Sharyn Mittelman

 PA continues to glorify terrorists

PA continues to glorify terrorists Categories: Palestinians, Terrorism, Updates     Author: Sharyn Mittelman

Despite its claimed opposition to terrorism, the PA continues to glorify terrorists. This was reinforced again when Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas met with freed Palestinian terrorist Amna Muna in Turkey on December 21, along with ten other Palestinians freed and exiled to Turke
