Asia Watch: Across the Spectrum

Support for the Palestinian cause and antipathy towards Israel is a rare point of agreement in the bare-knuckled Malaysian political debate. But there are outliers, like the hardline Muslim NGO Ikatan Muslimin Malaysia (Malaysian Muslim Solidarity) - known as ISMA. The move by the Vatican to recognise the Palestinian struggle for statehood was not enough for this group, and ISMA president Abdulla...

Report on Antisemitism in Australia, November 2011

It is a reality, if a regrettable one, that within the population of Australia there are individuals who are antisemitic. There are, also within our society, organisations which have as their primary purpose combating what they perceive to be the nefarious activities of Jews. There are some organisations which have agendas beyond, but which include, antisemitism. There are others which will employ...

Editorial: Three Reports On Gaza

Last year's fifty-day Gaza War, known in Israel as "Operation Protective Edge", has returned to the fore recently as the subject of several internal and external inquiries. The media has focused on the very questionable United Nations Human Rights Council's (UNHRC) commission's report released on June 22 - the mandate for which was a UNHRC resolution that openly declared Israel, and Israel alone,...

The reaction of Australia's government, media, and elite, and public opinion to Israel's December 2008-January 2009 military operations against Hamas in Gaza was mixed.

Not that the European Parliament carries much clout; clout is reserved for the army of unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats in Brussels and the sprinkling of political appointees. The surprises will come from the pop-up political parties which are, first and foremost, oppose...
