Fears for Libya and Syria’s WMDs Categories: Libya, Syria, Updates     Author: Sharyn Mittelman

Both Libya and Syria have large arsenals of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), and with the demise of Gaddaffi's regime and possibily the Assad regime, there are concerns that the WMDs could get into the wrong hands - with catastrophic results. According to Ynet, most of Libya's chemical weapons ar

Terrorist attack in south Tel Aviv Categories: Israel, Palestinians, Terrorism, Updates     Author: Sharyn Mittelman

This was displayed yet again today when the Iranian Foreign Ministry made the following statement, as reported by Bloomberg: "Iran congratulates the Musli

And this is a moderate? Categories: Israel, Palestinians, Updates     Author: Jamie Hyams

Sari Nusseibeh's "A Jewish rethink" (AFR, 19 August) is gravely disappointing from someone regarded as a pragmatic Palestinian moderate genuinely interested in peaceful co-existence with Israel. It is understandable that he endorses J Street founder Jeremy Ben-Ami's call for the US to impose a solu
