Australia embracing the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s Working Definition of Anti-Semitism

November 2, 2021 | Jeremy Jones

Now that the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) Working Definition of Anti-Semitism has been “embraced”, the challenge will be to ensure it is applied in ways which will ensure robust and informed debate on public policy matters, while providing recourse for victims of anti-Semitism.

Lyons’ claims laughable if not so insidious

October 14, 2021 | Allon Lee, Tzvi Fleischer

Lyons absurdly paints AIJAC as having “unadulterated power” – more power than former prime ministers or any other Australian lobby group. Apparently, we outgun the ACTU, the Business Council of Australia, GetUp, and the National Farmers’ Federation. He is so eager to denounce AIJAC, he violates journalism’s basic principles.

What Everyone Thinks They Know About the Yemen War is Wrong

October 11, 2021 | Oved Lobel

Whatever the complexities of the conflict, the primary culprit in the suffering of Yemenis and the continuation of the war is the fanatic, revolutionary brutality of Ansar Allah and its Iranian backers, not Saudi Arabia.

October 8, 2021 | Jeremy Jones

The Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council, the Executive Council of Australian Jewry, the Zionist Federation of Australia and other mainstream Jewish organisations in Australia have affirmed that the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism would greatly assist in identifying, understanding and responding appropriately to manifestations of antisemitism.

Hamas must be proscribed in its entirety

October 7, 2021 | Naomi Levin

Hamas is the terrorist group that fired 4000+ rockets toward Israel in May, killing 12 civilians there. Hamas is the terrorist group whose leaders take to TV to encourage supporters to buy a knife and cut off Jews’ heads… But Australia does not recognise Hamas as a terrorist group.

Amnesia, Afghanistan and the ongoing threat

September 9, 2021 | Tzvi Fleischer

If you told the average American in 2001 there would be no additional attacks like 9-11 for 20 years, at a cost of 4,000 American soldiers’ lives and US$1 trillion+, they would likely have considered that a successful outcome.

How Afghanistan’s fall to the Taliban increases the global terrorism threat

September 6, 2021 | Oved Lobel

Biden may think he’s succeeded where his two predecessors failed, but the consequences of the Afghanistan withdrawal will not stay contained for long. The same administration that estimated Kabul wouldn’t fall to the Taliban this year is now claiming that neither IS-K nor al-Qaeda will pose a global threat anytime soon despite the US withdrawal. They are almost certainly incorrect.
