Deconstruction Zone: Why the US was right to quit the UN...

US President Donald Trump has rightly decided to terminate US membership on what US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the “misnamed” UN “Human Rights” Council.

Israel’s Eurovision win: The good, the bad and the ugly

AIJAC’s full statement to the Australian regarding Sydney University BDS petition
