Antisemitic streak seen in Melbourne protests

September 30, 2021 | Naomi Levin

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, extremists and conspiracy theorists have sought to falsely blame the pandemic on Jews and accuse Jews of somehow trying to obtain political dominance through the use of vaccinations.

IAEA crisis regarding Iran escalates

September 27, 2021 | Ran Porat

Analysis of the Sept. 12 report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) suggests that the worst case scenario of Iran’s “breakout time” to build a bomb’s worth of highly enriched uranium could now be only a month.

Al Jazeera, Qatar and the Taliban

August 31, 2021 | Judy Maynard

Some Al Jazeera journalists and presenters openly support terrorist groups like the Taliban and Hamas. Far from being independent of government as it claims, Al Jazeera is an important tool of Qatari strategic policy. And Doha’s policies are dangerous and destructive, providing support to numerous terrorist and extremist groups, even as Qatar tries to position itself as a mediator and “honest broker.”

The covert antisemitism at the Melbourne anti-lockdown protest on Saturday

August 26, 2021 | Tzvi Fleischer

Wherever conspiracy theories flourish, antisemitism seems to inevitably rear its head – and as AIJAC has documented, the COVID-19 pandemic has provided plenty of fuel for such conspiracy theories. Worse, it is clear white supremacist groups are explicitly making use of anti-lockdown rallies to spread hateful messages, including against Jews, and recruit new members.

Sanctioned terrorists and ultra-hardliners – inside the new Iranian cabinet

August 25, 2021 | Ran Porat

Given Raisi’s background, and his close ties with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)… the makeup of his new government is not surprising. His selected cabinet consists of a disturbing collection of corrupt hardliners, terrorists and extremists who collectively leave no hope for positive change…

It is time for Australia to adopt the IHRA definition of antisemitism

August 20, 2021 | Naomi Levin

If antisemitism is already so broadly and urgently condemned, why is it important for Australia to adopt the IHRA working definition of antisemitism? There are three major reasons: to clearly send a message that antisemitism is not acceptable in Australia; to educate Australians what antisemitism is; and to help combat antisemitism.

Turkish conference underlines growing role of Ankara as key driver of global Islamist extremism

August 3, 2021 | Oved Lobel

Turkey openly champions Islamist terrorism and extremism, and its leadership actively incites violence not only against Israel and Jews, but against the West writ large. Though often dismissed as campaign rhetoric, Erdogan’s conspiratorial statements, which he no doubt believes, often appear explicitly designed to incite violence…

ABC story misrepresents shoddy HRW report, even as it hypes it

July 30, 2021 | Allon Lee

If it wasn’t bad enough that Human Rights Watch (HRW) issued yet another shoddy and poorly researched anti-Israel report, an ABC online article by reporter Sowaibah Hanifie managed to make that shoddy report seem more balanced than the ABC’s poor effort.

Why was Julian Burnside’s message antisemitic?

July 29, 2021 | Naomi Levin

On July 28, Australian barrister and former Greens candidate Julian Burnside tweeted that “The curious thing about the Israeli stance is that their treatment of the Palestinians looks horribly like the German treatment of the Jews during the Holocaust.”
