Europa Europa: The final frontier

Europa Europa: The final frontier Categories: Israel, United Kingdom     Author: Douglas Davis

Israelis do not hanker for a return to the days of the British Mandate. Nor do they hide secret reservoirs of nostalgia for the sometimes-brutal British colonial police who once strutted about their streets. But they did react with undisguised pleasure to the decision by the UK Foreign Office last m

It's time Australia recognised Hezbollah in its entirety as a terrorist organisation

It's time Australia recognised Hezbollah in its entirety as a terrorist organisation Categories: Australasia, Lebanon, Op-eds, Terrorism, United Kingdom     Author: Colin Rubenstein

THERE is a group that was ­described by a senior US ­security official 15 years ago as the "A-Team of terrorists" and has only gone from strength to strength in the years since then. This group perpetrates violent acts against civilians, calls for mass murder and, by its own admission, doesn

Europa Europa: Domestic Unease

Europa Europa: Domestic Unease Categories: Anti-Zionism, Antisemitism, United Kingdom     Author: Douglas Davis

I have always felt a profound debt of gratitude to Britain. It did not roll out the red carpet but, rather impassively, it offered me a refuge and the opportunity to lead a normal life of anonymity, which is the blessing of a big city. No more.

The Last Word: The Banality of Antisemitism

The Last Word: The Banality of Antisemitism Categories: Antisemitism, United Kingdom     Author: Jeremy Jones

Prior to, and during, the recent UK election campaign, there was a renewed focus on antisemitism promoted by sections of, and tolerated by many more inside, the political Left.

Sir Gerald Kaufman was more than just another veteran Labour politician. Having entered the House of Commons in 1970, he was the longest-serving parliamentarian of any political hue... And, as an Orthodox Jew, he should have been revered by the Jewish community. Instead, when he died last month aged

Europa Europa: A Troubling Truth

Europa Europa: A Troubling Truth Categories: Anti-Zionism, Europe, United Kingdom     Author: Douglas Davis

The Balfour Apology Campaign launched the first in a year-long series of global events at the House of Lords in London to decry the creation of Israel and to demand an "official apology from the British government for its past colonial crimes in Palestine." At the gathering, organised by the Palesti

Europa Europa: Brexit and Israel

Europa Europa: Brexit and Israel Categories: Europe, Israel, United Kingdom     Author: Douglas Davis

The British decision to uncouple from the EU, expected to take effect by 2019, was not unqualified good news for Israel: Britain, along with Germany, has been among Israel's most stalwart diplomatic allies in the EU and its voice within the decision-making forums of the EU will be missed, particular

The company Corbyn keeps

The company Corbyn keeps Categories: Anti-Zionism, Antisemitism, Israel, United Kingdom     Author: Douglas Davis

If it was true that you can judge a man by the company he keeps, Jeremy Corbyn would be an Israel-hating, antisemitic, Holocaust-denier. The newly elected leader of Britain's Labour Party would vehemently deny he is any of the above, but some of his best friends are one or more of these things.
