February 17, 2021 | Oved Lobel

Iran’s capabilities in cyberspace are clearly improving, and that will likely mean more credible disinformation operations, more sophisticated cyberattacks and improved espionage capacity, in Australia and elsewhere.

When will Europe grow a spine on Iranian terrorism?

February 10, 2021 | Oved Lobel

Europe has a long history of looking the other way on terrorism. So perhaps it should come as no surprise that France –as well as the rest of Europe – appears essentially unresponsive or even indifferent to a thwarted terror attack by agents of the Iranian regime on its soil.

Parties finalise their lists for next month’s Israeli election

February 5, 2021 | Ahron Shapiro

Registration of parties for Israel’s March 23 national election closed last night, bringing into focus the political battle lines for the upcoming campaign and closing the window for smaller parties to merge and reduce the risk of falling under the electoral threshold of 3.25 percent on Election Day.

US-Turkey

The Biden Administration’s Turkish Dilemma

February 2, 2021 | Oved Lobel

Turkey’s own behaviour will play a role in determining US policy, but there appears little likelihood of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan making anything more than the most cosmetic efforts to get into the Biden Administration’s good graces.

B’Tselem & “Apartheid”

January 28, 2021 | Judy Maynard

Israeli left-wing NGO B’Tselem managed to grab some international attention by releasing a provocative report on Jan. 12, in which it labelled Israel an apartheid and Jewish supremacist regime. The report’s overblown title, “A regime of Jewish supremacy from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea: This is apartheid”, appears to have been a deliberate mirroring of the catchcry of those who would eliminate Israel: “Palestine must be free, from the river to the sea.”

Clive Williams’ misguided claims on Iran, Israel and the Trump Administration – a fisking

January 11, 2021 | AIJAC staff

Clive Williams is a campus visitor with the ANU Centre for Military and Security Law. His article on The Conversation website asked, “Are the US and Iran headed for a military showdown before Trump leaves office?” (Jan 4). Unfortunately, the article was a mixture of out-of-context information, factual errors and half-truths brought together by an underlying presumption that the real threat to peace and security in the Middle East is not Iran, but Israel and the US Administration.

Beware Turkey’s normalisation noise

January 7, 2021 | Oved Lobel

Absent concrete Turkish concessions or a substantial change in the regional situation, no Israeli interests can be served by humouring Erdogan’s outreach or indulging Turkey’s progressively more appalling demands and activities.
