Horror too ghastly to comprehend

October 9, 2023 | Joel Burnie

There is horror and anger and confusion and disbelief and revulsion, but none can adequately describe or do justice to what has happened and is currently happening to my Jewish homeland, Israel.

‘Israel’s 9/11’ and the troubling ‘victory’ of Hamas

October 9, 2023 | Ran Porat

The events on the Gaza-Israel border, which started on 7 October, are nothing short of an earthquake. The implications are difficult to foresee right now, but are likely to be enormous.

War again shocked us all

October 5, 2023 | Colin Rubenstein

In July 1973, I visited a young, 25-year-old Israel, seemingly well-recovered from the threatening June 1967 Six Day War, for a happy sporting event – the four-yearly Maccabiah Games, the so-called “Jewish Olympics”.

Is UNESCO Going to Erase Jewish History From Another Israeli City?

September 11, 2023 | Justin Amler

UNESCO is supposed to be a body that preserves the cultural history of the world. Yet by furthering and facilitating the Palestinian agenda of erasing Jewish history from the Land of Israel, UNESCO is not only failing in its mission, but completely subverting it by participating in the corruption and falsification of history itself.

Australia must do more about Iran

August 25, 2023 | Oved Lobel

Labor’s Israel shift is a blow to peace and our credibility

August 15, 2023 | Ahron Shapiro

The Albanese government has cut Australian foreign policy loose from its historic policy moorings regarding Israel, the Palestinians and the peace process. Our national policy now seems to have been devised primarily to please the Labor Left’s most unhinged virtue-signallers.

Ill-conceived posturing on Palestine is undermining Australia’s reputation as a trusted peace broker

August 14, 2023 | Justin Amler

Foreign Minister Penny Wong says that the Government’s decision was “guided by the principle of advancing the cause of peace and progress towards a just and enduring two-state solution.” If so, its approach is wholly misguided and ahistorical. It completely ignores the recent history of Palestinian intransigence…

Australia’s Middle East decision ill-conceived

August 10, 2023 | Colin Rubenstein

The Federal Government’s decision… is profoundly disappointing and counterproductive. It will severely strain Australia’s long-standing bipartisan national policy of supporting a negotiated two-state peace, even though the Government says it continues to support this outcome.
