Undercover agents and provocateurs – a world of difference

October 14, 2015 | Ahron Shapiro

In the Sydney Morning Herald and the Age on October 10, Fairfax used the world “provocateurs” in a caption for an illustrative photo showing Israeli undercover police officers arresting rioting Palestinians.

To accuse Israel of entrapping Palestinians by inciting them to violence – the role of a provocateur – is a serious allegation. But what really happened?

Rising Palestinian incitement to violence

Rising Palestinian incitement to violence

October 9, 2015 | Ari Wenig

This week has seen a shocking rise in Palestinian violence and terrorism, with countless incidents of stoning, stabbing and attacks across Israel. The civilian aggression is inextricably linked to the incitement from their leadership. Press statements, online posts, published cartoons, videos – the violence is being encouraged through various mediums, and the perpetrators are being publically celebrated as heroes.

Abbas' UN "Bombshell"

Abbas’ UN “Bombshell”

October 1, 2015

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas gave his much-foreshadowed speech at the UN General Assembly yesterday, and it only partially contained the “bombshell” that Palestinian sources repeatedly said it would. Amid a litany of accusations against Israel, and a rejection of renewed negotiations, Abbas did make a rather ambiguous statement that ” we cannot continue to be bound by” the Oslo Accords which he accused Israel of violating. However, he failed to offer any sort of specifics as to what this implied, turning this claim into more of a threat than a genuine change on the ground. This Update is devoted to analysis of Abbas’ claims and supposed “announcement”. 

Speaking Violence

Speaking Violence, Hearing Silence

September 27, 2015 | Ari Wenig

The hypocricy is almost breathtaking: pleading to the international media for an end to violence at the risk of “an intifada that we don’t want”, whilst simultaneously inciting Palestinians to do “everything in [their] power” to stop the Jews “defiling [the Al-Aqsa] with their filthy feet”, assuring them that “martyrs will be rewarded… by Allah”. The speaker was President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, and the bulk of the international media and political community responded with indifference.

The problem with Jeremy Corbyn

The problem with Jeremy Corbyn

September 22, 2015 | Sharyn Mittelman

Jeremy Corbyn, with his controversial history of calling terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah “friends”, and associating with known antisemites and Holocaust deniers, has become the leader of the British Labour party. Corbyn claims that his references to terrorists as “friends” was to promote peace and dialogue, yet many commentators have wondered whether he would call any Israeli Prime Minister his “friend”.
