January 5, 2023 | Oved Lobel

December 16, 2022 | Justin Amler

Francesca Albanese, the Special Rapporteur appointed by the United Nations Human Rights Council to investigate the human rights situation in the “occupied Palestinian territories” wants us to believe she is an unbiased, impartial observer… [But] her past social media posts which appear to spread classical antisemitic tropes have gotten in the way.

The idea that a wedge could ever be driven between Russia and Iran, in Syria or anywhere else, has been tested for decades and proved definitively false.

Iran’s revealing submission to the Australian parliament

November 23, 2022 | Oved Lobel

It is unclear whether this submission reflects a total lack of self-awareness by the Islamic Republic about how hideous its behaviour appears domestically and internationally, or whether it is a deliberate attempt to mock Australia’s stance and inquiry. Either way, the Iranian submission to Australia’s inquiry is itself a strong argument for serious sanctions against Iran.
