Australia’s failing campus report card

May 22, 2024 | Tammy Reznik

Jewish students on campus have felt so aggrieved and threatened by the level of aggression and attacks at these camps, that many have simply stayed away from university. Moreover, many institutions are effectively encouraging students and Jewish staff to stay away “for their own safety,” as one teacher was told in an email.

The UN’s slippery slope is now a chasm

May 21, 2024 | Justin Amler

When the United Nations General Assembly passed yet another “Palestine” resolution on May 10 this year, it demonstrated that the immoral slippery slope that the UN had been on for so many years is no longer a slope, but a cliff over which all common sense, logic, decency and morality have fallen

Holding on to hope in the eye of a hurricane

May 17, 2024 | Rabbi Ralph Genende

At the end of her song, Golan sings a few Hebrew sentences that make my heart sing: “You don’t need big words, just prayers. Even if it’s hard to see, you will always be for me a small singular ray of light”. In dark and dangerous times we need to reach out and grasp every bit of light we can find, and spread it wide and far.

Antisemitic campus extremists don’t understand meaning of free speech

May 16, 2024 | Ran Porat

While individuals have the right to express and share their views with the world, this does not grant a license to promote hate, violence, or reject others simply because they hold different opinions. Accountability accompanies our words. Freedom of speech does not equate to permission for harassment, threats, property damage, or undermining the rights of others.

Palestine vote the worst of all worlds for Australia

May 15, 2024 | Colin Rubenstein

It’s completely misguided as a way to advance Israeli-Palestinian peace… and can only undermine our long-standing bipartisan national commitment to a negotiated two-state peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

Uni leaders must stand up for Jewish students

May 14, 2024 | Mark Leibler

It breaks my heart to contemplate the disconnect between my experience of university life and that of Jewish students in Australia and the United States today.

A new coalition against Iran

May 6, 2024 | Colin Rubenstein

For years, Iran has been orchestrating a vast plan to encircle Israel militarily and attack it constantly – openly saying this is intended to destroy Israel by 2040. Teheran’s ability to hide behind the proxies it finances, trains, arms and largely controls, with impunity for this blatant aggression, should now end.

Gaza protests not driven primarily by human rights concerns

May 3, 2024 | Oved Lobel

No encampments were set up across the world to protest the wars in Syria and Sudan, where so many more innocent Arab civilians died. And no other conflict has aroused the rabid passion and hate displayed against Israel, including Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

It’s Time to Stop the Latest Pandemic of Hate

May 3, 2024 | Colin Rubenstein

Nobody is saying that the right to protest shouldn’t be upheld, but only in keeping with laws and university regulations. That must include the right of Jewish students to attend classes without intimidation and fear – and this is not currently happening.

Antisemitism is the Same Old Story

May 3, 2024 | Justin Amler

The continuing inability of political and university leaders to show moral courage and emphatically call this violent hatred out has emboldened the demonstrators to such a degree that the protests continue to grow in strength and numbers, and the only people who seem to be “moved on” by police for their own “safety” are Jews
