Israel’s enemies try and fail to help Hamas terrorists

January 30, 2024 | Colin Rubenstein

Although it’s regrettable the ICJ did not throw out the meritless case altogether, it is clear South Africa’s disgraceful attempt to weaponise the Genocide Convention against Israel in support of Hamas failed.

After the atrocities of 7 October and amid the devastation in Gaza, remembering the Holocaust rightly is a moral obligation

January 29, 2024 | Ran Porat

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” These words of the philosopher George Santayana have been on my mind as we approach International Holocaust Remembrance Day this year. But I fear that those who distort the memory of the Shoah in light of the conflict in Gaza may be doing something even worse…

Netanyahu’s critics ignore Israel’s right to security, peace

January 29, 2024 | Colin Rubenstein

Netanyahu’s actual arguments about why Israel needs security control over the West Bank and Gaza make considerable sense. Netanyahu said, “All territory we evacuate, we get terror, terrible terror against us,” citing Gaza, southern Lebanon and parts of the West Bank. Historically, he’s not wrong…

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.
