Sydney University stabbing highlights issues in AIJAC submission on right-wing extremism

July 3, 2024 | Oved Lobel

As the details surrounding the incident become progressively clearer, the stabbing is beginning to look like a textbook case of what AIJAC described in its recent submission to the Senate Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee inquiry into right-wing extremist movements in Australia, its previous submission to the Legal and Social Issues Committee’s inquiry into extremism in Victoria as well as in blogposts and articles.

Counting – and miscounting – Gaza aid trucks

June 20, 2024 | Alana Schetzer

The United Nations’ official data on the amount of aid being delivered to Gaza is not only unreliable but consistently undercounts the actual number of trucks going into the Strip.

Israelis cannot risk returning to their homes and fields with Hezbollah on the border surveilling their every move, looking to harass constantly, while planning its own October 7-style invasion.

Another plank of the extreme anti-Israel narrative collapses

July 2, 2024 | Oved Lobel

Multiple independent analyses of the Hamas-run Ministry of Health (MoH) casualty data have long since demonstrated that the casualty numbers contained statistical anomalies indicating they were clearly heavily manipulated if not outright fabricated.

‘Devil’s bargain’: Sydney University is tolerating hate speech by caving in to its tent camp extremists

June 30, 2024 | Greg Rose

The actions of the Vice-Chancellor Mark Scott, whose complete capitulation to SUMSA has been a disgrace, must urgently be reviewed by the university senate. The University of Sydney’s endorsement of the political demands put forward by this activist group is simply a devil’s bargain with radicalised extremists.

Essay: The Placard Strategy

July 4, 2024 | Einat Wilf

In the 130 years since Half Solace was published, the blood libels that Ahad Ha’am encountered in tsarist Russia were updated by its Soviet heirs to fit an age of greater literacy and sophistication. These refurbished libels were then exported to the West, where they flourish today, creating the same dangerous dynamic that alarmed Ahad Ha’am.

The Last Word: What is a university?

July 4, 2024 | Rabbi Ralph Genende

What we are witnessing on today’s Australian campuses is a shameful failure of leadership. It boggles the mind how a learned man like Sydney University Vice-Chancellor Mark Scott can engage in such tortured logic to justify the failure of his institution to live up to the purpose of the university in his dealings with anti-Israel protestors who have occupied his university’s campus.
