    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

    The Balfour Declaration and British Leftist anti-Semitism

    The centenary of the Balfour Declaration has brought British, and other anti-Semites, crawling out of the woodwork. Labour is a party which claims the mantle of progress. It is a sad state of affairs that a British Lord had a more enlightened attitude to the Jewish people 100 years ago than many in the Labour Party do today

    A Donald Trump 14 Points for Israel and Palestinians

    President Trump should emulate Woodrow Wilson and his landmark 14 points for peace by setting out 14 basic terms and conditions for a sane and lasting deal for Israel, the Palestinians, and the region as a whole. This is what those points should be

    Why the Arab Spring really turned into an Arab Winter

    Fomenting conspiracy theories and blaming someone else for one's own misfortunes is a national sport in the Arab world. The Arab Spring's failure has deep roots in the political culture, and the West needs to understand that until that changes the prospect for an enlightened politics will remain remote

    Eddie Izzard confronts Palestinian discrimination

    The anti-Israel campaign by BDS has become more sophisticated. It no longer talks of throwing Jews into the sea, but is the latest device in a soft terror campaign for those seeking the end of Israel or “Zionism.” Comedian Eddie Izzard has shown the dishonesty and idiocy of the entire BDS agenda

    Trump's policy and Israel's

    With Hamas on the warpath, and Iran wanting a base in Syria, eager to fight Israel on the Golan Heights, and preparing to gain a stronger foothold in Middle Eastern affairs, an entente cordial between President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu is essential

    Scrolls tell the truth in the Middle East

    From Holocaust denial to efforts in international organizations such as UNESCO to detach proven Jewish heritage in the Middle East from the State of Israel, the truth will always out, and the scrolls don't lie

    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

    Bravo Britain for slamming Obama over Israel

    Britain, to the fury of the lame-duck Obama administration, has called out John Kerry for his wishy washy approach to terrorism against Israel. This is an important move, and we should applaud it, for all our sakes

    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

    Israeli settlements are not the obstacle to peace

    Honest, objective analysis would indicate that the main obstacle to peace, and to a Palestinian state is Palestinian intransigence and resort to violence. Settlements are a red herring for obsessive and irrational Israel haters

    Israel: The bravest democracy of our time

    Against all the odds, against history itself (?), against the hatred of all hatreds, the Jewish state has survived and prospered. In the week of its 68th birthday, all free men and women of the world unite to say: God bless Israel, bravest democracy of our time

    UNESCO's resolution of hate against Israel

    It is shameful that UNESCO, set up for peaceful purposes to promote intercultural dialogue, has been misused for political purposes. Its one sided resolutions against Israel and its citizens demonstrate it has become a vehicle for hatred, not peace

    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
