Ignoring UNRWA’s problems will only condemn future generations of Palestinians

May 2, 2024 | Justin Amler

UNRWA remains a serious problem, and by ignoring and whitewashing the evidence of its collusion with Hamas, future Palestinian generations will continue to be condemned to an education indoctrinated with hatred and violence rather than peaceful coexistence.

Israel-Iran conflict: Its origins explained, and what could happen next

April 22, 2024 | Ran Porat

For now, fears of escalation appear to have been eased. However, lurking in the background is the ongoing progress of the regime in Tehran towards acquiring a nuclear weapon. The 13 April Iranian attack on Israel offered yet further proof that Israel cannot allow Iran to build such weapons. Jerusalem can be expected to act to prevent this outcome, one way or another.

Emboldened Iran is still seeking nuclear capacity

April 18, 2024 | Colin Rubenstein

Only by resuming pressure on Iran to stand down its nuclear weapons program, including restoring a credible threat that no measures will be off the table if Tehran does not comply, can the world prevent the world’s most dangerous regime from arming itself with the world’s most dangerous weapons.

Move to recognise Palestine comes at the worst possible time

April 16, 2024 | Ahron Shapiro

Bestowing recognition to a Palestinian state before the Palestinians agree to peace with Israel through negotiations would always violate the Oslo Accords and be inherently counterproductive. However, coming in the middle of a war initiated by the Palestinian terror group Hamas, the timing for even considering such a step couldn’t be worse.

Iran’s unprecedented attack on Israel was a strategic miscalculation. Can all-out war now be averted?

April 14, 2024 | Ran Porat

his unprecedented multi-front attack on Israel constitutes a de facto declaration of war and marks the first direct assault against Israel from Iranian soil. However, despite the scale of the operation, it appears to be a tactical failure.

Contemplating ‘a return to Zion’ in the face of antisemitism

April 14, 2024 | Tammy Reznik

The Australian landscape has definitely shifted for its Jewish citizens, and it is unsurprising that a substantial number of Jews from “down under” have moved to Israel since the start of the war.

Aid Worker tragedy should not be misused

April 12, 2024 | Allon Lee

The needless death of innocents in war is always horrifying. Yet despite Israel immediately accepting responsibility and apologising abjectly, far too many people have tried to leverage this calamity to discredit Israel’s war against Hamas and force it to accept a ceasefire that would effectively leave Hamas in power in Gaza.

Peace won’t be achieved through speeches like Penny Wong’s

April 12, 2024 | Colin Rubenstein

The preconditions for a two-state peace are simply not in place, and extending such recognition before they are only makes it less likely these preconditions will ever be developed.

Australia’s maverick response to WCK tragedy looking increasingly irrational

April 10, 2024 | Greg Rose

While Foreign Minister Senator Penny Wong’s dismay is understandable, the Australian government’s reaction since has displayed double standards and failures to understand either the military realities behind this accident or the relevant international law.

Aid worker tragedy must not lead to permanent ceasefire

April 9, 2024 | Colin Rubenstein

It would only make matters worse if the tragic and horrific accidental killing of seven humanitarian aid workers from the World Central Kitchen on April 1, including Australian Zomi Frankcom… were to sabotage efforts to reach a temporary ceasefire deal between Israel and Hamas.
