    Unbearable lightness of being Jewish in Corbyn's Labour

    There are few sadder sights than Jewish Labour members justifying their existence in a party that loathes them. Amid the Brexit turmoil, Jeremy Corbyn could slip into Downing Street as Prime Minister. Be afraid, be very afraid

    Boycotters go bonkers as Eurovision goes to Israel

    With Israel hosting the Eurovision song contest this year, it is with dreary predictability that boycotters like Peter Gabriel and Roger Waters are out in force. It's a bigger farce than Eurovision itself

    Countdown to anti-Semitism? Not on Rachel's watch

    Jeremy Corbyn's Stalinist, Israel-hating, Jew-bashing hate mob is out in force against Countdown's Rachel Riley. Salute her courage, and follow her lead

    Israel as normal or unique

    Interestingly, the legacy of Herzl is claimed both by the right as nationalist, and by the left as cosmopolitan. Despite, or perhaps because of, its successes Israel's goal of becoming a state like any other remains elusive

    A smart move, a just move: Trump recognises Jerusalem

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday recognised that the Eiffel Tower is in Paris, that the Pope is indeed a Catholic, and that Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel. Rumour has it that he will soon break precedent with world leaders everywhere and declare that the square root of nine is three

    An indulgent, damaging MidEast "peace" conference

    The so called "peace conference" in Paris is nothing of the sort. It is yet another event that confirms the world's self-imposed ignorance about the real cause of the Israel-Palestine conflict which is Palestinian rejectionism

    Amid the bad news in 2016, 2 miracles for Israel

    The Christian world has a sometimes contradictory relationship with Israel and the Jewish people. For all the problems of 2016, there were some truly positive developments including a potentially landmark book on Christians and Jews

    A miracle in Bossey

    After the Holocaust in Europe, Christians started to do the tough work of unpacking the relationship between the New Testament, Christian theology and the history of antisemitism in Western civilization. It is time for scholars at Al Azhar University to start doing the heavy lifting and confront the relationship between Islamic sources and the catastrophe unfolding in the Middle East today

    Bernie Sanders and his strange take on Israel

    Bernie Sanders, for all his fulminations about the “establishment”, political and financial, is on the Israel issue the epitome of fashionable, and sometimes bigoted, political correctness

    Will Chris Gunness ever be held to account?

    The UNRWA's spokesperson is assisting in Hamas's "dead baby strategy". This bias is intolerable and violates UNRWA's own policies on neutrality. When will this outrage be brought to an end?

    Arab Christian leaders: Same old song and dance on Israel

    When one pauses to reflect on what significant Arab Christian leaders have been saying about the problems in the Middle East these past few years, one throws up one's hands in despair. You guessed it. Their real complaint is with Israel

    Truth under siege from Artists for Palestine

    The abuse of art by anti-Israeli activists has reared its ugly head in London again. If this was the usual suspects it wouldn't be so bad. But mainstream actors and taxpayers' money add a sinister new twist to on old hatred

    The two-state delusion

    The liberal-Left in Britain, and elsewhere, is engaged in willful blindness about Israel's ability to forge a two-state solution. The reality is that it isn't in Israel's gift to bring one about because the Palestinians always reject it. It's time the West woke up

    Victory for Netanyahu and success all round for Israel

    When it came down to putting envelopes in boxes, “King Bibi” was the candidate who has shown a willingness to face up to international pressure (particularly from the US) and not to back down on the nation’s security in successive failed peace talks with the rejectionist Palestinians

    Anti-Israel Anglican vicar “temporarily unavailable”

    Amazing as it may sound, vicars in the Church of England can actually go too far in their hostility to Israel. Rev Sizer's website link to a 9/11 conspiracy theory blaming Israel for the attacks has got him into big trouble
