Iran Protests (52383779726)

After over 7 months of silence, Government rejects nearly all Senate recommendations on Iran

September 14, 2023 | Oved Lobel

Just why the Australian Government continues to refuse to coordinate with its allies when it comes to sanctions on Iran, and is content to self-evidently lag behind other nations in its statements and actions, remains a mystery.

Is UNESCO Going to Erase Jewish History From Another Israeli City?

September 11, 2023 | Justin Amler

UNESCO is supposed to be a body that preserves the cultural history of the world. Yet by furthering and facilitating the Palestinian agenda of erasing Jewish history from the Land of Israel, UNESCO is not only failing in its mission, but completely subverting it by participating in the corruption and falsification of history itself.

Australia must do more about Iran

August 25, 2023 | Oved Lobel

Instead of focusing solely on Israeli–Palestinian issues, Australian pressure should also be directed towards the Iranian regime over its piracy, terrorism, nuclear program, regional destabilisation, weapons proliferation and material support for Russia.

Oslo did not succeed, but what’s the alternative?

September 27, 2023 | Yaakov Katz

The real question we should be asking 30 years after that ceremony in Washington, is what does the anti-Oslo camp offer? What is their vision for how Israel thrives in this land without occupying other people and without slipping toward an apartheid state if it were to annex territory without granting citizenship?

The lesson of Oslo is that management of the conflict is the best Israel can do for now, according to Inbar, and a strong IDF thus remains essential (Image: Isranet)

The lessons of Oslo’s failure

September 27, 2023 | Efraim Inbar

Failures can be costly but instructive. The Oslo Accords assumed that a fundamental change had taken place in the attitude of the Palestinian National Movement toward the State of Israel. Nevertheless, to this day, recognition of the State of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people has not been granted.

“Moderate” Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas was widely condemned last year for accusing Israel of committing “50 Holocausts” – while in Germany no less.
