The truth about water in Gaza

July 12, 2024 | Alana Schetzer

One of the many libels hurled against Israel since Hamas started the current war on October 7 is the claim that Israel has weaponised water by deliberately denying its supply to Gazans. This is a falsehood that doesn’t stand up to basic scrutiny.

Médecins Sans Frontières has lost its way

July 3, 2024 | Greg Rose, Tzvi Fleischer

MSF has a history of allowing terrorists to operate with impunity in its facilities, of tolerating and defending terrorist groups and of making highly political public statements, especially with regard to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict – far from the ideal of neutral provision of aid.

A university is for a multiplicity of ideas

July 18, 2024 | Rabbi Ralph Genende

Our universities have created a culture of grievance, resentment and rage which is fertile ground for the kind of vituperative antisemitism we are witnessing.

Israel’s hardest war is fighting the lies waged against it

July 17, 2024 | Justin Amler

It’s a truly dystopian alternate reality when a country under existential threat from a brutal terrorist death cult rescues innocent hostages from its clutches and the world’s reaction is criticism and lamentation.

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.

Deconstruction Zone: The conspiracy trap

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.
