Post-referendum, Turkey’s Erdogan employs his new powers in ugly ways

May 11, 2017 | Shmuel Levin

In April, a contested referendum saw Turkey pass into law a new draft constitution that significantly increases the powers of its President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. (For more on how the referendum seems to have fundamentally transformed Turkey politically, see Amotz Asa-El in the latest AIR.) Now, one month later, Erdogan may be unleashing those powers.

The Age Gets Loew – a Fisking

The Age Gets Loew – a Fisking

May 11, 2017 | Gareth Narunsky

The Age newspaper (and the Sydney Morning Herald online) ran a “report” from anti-Zionist activist and author Antony Loewenstein on April 10 titled Ticking towards war: What will it take to change life in the Gaza Strip?

Seriously? Abbas claims Palestinians are “raising our youth

Seriously? Abbas claims Palestinians are “raising our youth, our children, our grandchildren on a culture of peace”

May 10, 2017 | Sharyn Mittelman

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas recently met with US President Donald Trump and said, “Mr. President, I affirm to you that we are raising our youth, our children, our grandchildren on a culture of peace.” 

If only that was true, peace might appear a lot closer.  It is well documented that in numerous cases the Palestinian Authority has actively promoted incitement against Jews and Israel by praising terrorists, as well as “jihad” and “martyrdom”, especially in messages directed at children.

As Emmanuel Macron claimed victory in the French Presidential election this week, French Jewish community leaders expressed relief.

After threatening Australia with a nuclear strike last week, North Korea has added yet another country to its target list – Israel.

Beyond the spin: Israel's planned settlement

Beyond the spin: Israel’s planned settlement

April 6, 2017 | Ahron Shapiro

While, ironically, both pro-settlement and anti-settlement groups have an interest in amplifying its significance, a rational fact-based analysis of Israel’s planned first new West Bank settlement in over 20 years would seem to suggest they’re almost literally making a mountain out of a molehill.

April 5, 2017 | Shmuel Levin
