Hamas gladly puts its people in harm’s way

January 24, 2024 | Jamie Hyams

[Hamas] believe[s] that if they can convince Israel’s Jews that they will never be safe in Israel, they will leave. This is why the Hamas October 7 massacres featured such calculated brutality.

Sanctions can no longer be the sole response to Tehran’s blatant provocations

January 21, 2024 | Oved Lobel

It is long past time for Western nations to recognise that appeasement of Iran has failed. The regime is at war with them, whether they wish to be at war with Iran or not. Sanctions cannot be the sole response to decades of terrorism, piracy, hostage-taking, arms proliferation and wars of aggression against the US-led international order.

Israel’s policy in Gaza is the opposite of the “deliberate starvation” lie

January 19, 2024 | Justin Amler

Despite the narrative being spun by many that Israel is preventing aid from entering Gaza, the real truth is the opposite. Israel, rather than targeting civilians, has done everything it can reasonably be expected to, and more, to try to help the Palestinian population while also fighting a deadly war under indescribably difficult conditions

Penny Wong must understand that many Palestinians see all Israelis as ‘settlers’

January 17, 2024 | Ran Porat

Before her visit to Israel this week, Foreign Minister Penny Wong reiterated the government’s view that Israeli “settlements are illegal under international law” … Israel disagrees with this interpretation, arguing the West Bank is “disputed territory” and rejecting their definition as “occupied Palestinian territory”, as Australia’s current government argues.

100 days on, the trauma has not dissipated

January 15, 2024 | Colin Rubenstein

For Israelis, October 7 was cataclysmic and transformational, like September 11, 2001 was for the US, only more so… These events left a collective and still unhealed scar on not just the seven million Jews of Israel, but Jews the world over.

‘From the River to the Sea’ is the Postmodern ‘Hep! Hep!’

January 11, 2024 | Aviva Winton

‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free’ is a new attempt to deny any Jewish claim to national self-determination in the land of Israel, to deny Jewish indigeneity in the land of Israel, despite our unbroken and documented presence on the land for almost 4,000 years, and ascribe indigeneity solely to another people.

The end of judicial reform, and the beginning of healing

January 4, 2024 | Ran Porat

This reform was aimed at reducing what right-wing supporters believed to be excessive powers held by the courts… However, for millions of Israelis, the suggested reform was seen as a direct attack on the fragile democratic structure of the Jewish state.
