    Palestinian leaders' self interest militates against peace

    The unspoken reality is that Palestinian elites dare not forge real peace with Israel because it will expose them as having wasted the lives of their people for decades to acquire something Israel was always ready to offer anyway

    The UN General Assembly: Prejudice without pride

    The UN General Assembly recently passed six resolutions on the MidEast, taking account of ISIS, terrorism, the slaughter in Syria. Or rather it did nothing of the sort. It ignored all the real problems and sank into prejudiced and bigoted attacks on Israel

    The NGO campaign against Israel

    Western NGOs routinely violate all pretense of neutrality when they get into Israel-bashing mode. Why do they do it? Old fashioned bigotry is part of it, but it may also be a psychological release related to the real tyrannies whose crimes they ignore

    British academics and bigotry against Israel

    Hundreds of British academics, mired in ignorance and bigotry, signed an advertisement in the Guardian pledging boycotts of Israeli academia. These people know no shame

    The unholy abuse of the Holy Land

    The burning of a Christian church in Bethlehem by suspected Muslim extremists is ignored, while media and pundits persist in old canards about Jews and Christ. It's an unholy mess of bigotry over the Holy Land

    The ghost of the Grand Mufti lives on

    In a recent broadcast on a top-rated Egyptian TV show, viewers were told that Jews attack Egypt by, inter alia, manipulating the weather, causing earthquakes, and firing meteors from outer space. There is a sickness at the heart of a political culture that produces such twisted nonsense

    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?

    World Vision needs to quit anti-Israel battlefield

    World Vision, the Christian charity, has blurred vision when it comes to the Jewish state. Its disgraceful propaganda against Israel is shameful in itself and marks a betrayal of the ideals it claims to uphold

    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

    A very Moodey retraction of a blood libel against Israel

    The knee-jerk response in some quarters to civilian casualties in fighting between Israel and its terrorist opponents is to blame Israel. The test of their integrity comes when the facts show otherwise, as in the case of a Palestinian boy killed by a Hamas rocket, not "murdered" by Israel as was claimed

    Kerry's disrespectful mocking stance on Israel, and Congress

    Kerry is more concerned with the sensibilities of undemocratic Islamic countries than with the legitimate powers of Congress. His mocking, disrespectful remarks about Israel and Congress may be a sign of subconscious insecurity about the shaky deal he has reached with Iran

    EU's astonishing free pass for Palestinian terrorism

    The European Union is prone to living in a fantasy world. But its latest pronouncement effectively whitewashing Palestinian terrorism and simultaneously demonising Israel marks yet another, astonishing, low point

    Cat out of the bag: Obama's hostility to Israel exposed

    Former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren has exposed a relationship between Obama and the State Department on the one hand and Israel on the other characterised by anguish and disagreement. It's a fascinating and disturbing account

    Desmond Tutu: Once a hero, now forlorn anti-Israel loser

    Desmond Tutu was once a hero in the eyes of freedom fighters around the world. But talk about a tragic flaw: he's now best known for having fallen in with the bigotry amongst bigotries -- irrational hatred of the Jewish State of Israel. It keeps getting worse. Someone should pray for his soul

    Latest Palestinian ruse? They'll do anything except make peace

    The latest pathetic, and tragically boring, effort by the Palestinians to abuse the International Criminal Court against Israel just shows how doggedly opposed they are to real peace. Only Western bigots and enemies of peace could support it
