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.

September 9, 2021 | Tzvi Fleischer

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

September 6, 2021 | Oved Lobel

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.

Is it too late to stop Iran from crossing the nuclear threshold?

August 5, 2021 | Ran Porat

Indirect negotiations in Vienna between the United States and Iran about the 2015 nuclear deal (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA) seem to be going nowhere. The Iranians apparently decided to leave the talks until after anti-Semitic hardliner Ebrahim Raisi takes office as president.
