    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 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

    UK Labour, the Church, and cancerous anti-Semitism

    Great Britain is in a mind-boggling mess over anti-Semitism. This, of course, is related to bigotry against Israel. Can the dilemmas be resolved, or will the cancer continue to metastasize?

    No wonder they call it ‘Belgistan’

    Per capita Belgium has seen more Muslims travel to join Islamic State than any other European nation. Its security services are dysfunctional, and Belgium is now a byword for the failed multiculturalist strategies that feed the jihad in Europe

    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

    Lord Weidenfeld, the Jews, and help for Christians

    It is a sign of the times that Lord Weidenfeld, a lifelong Zionist, is mounting one of the most effective defences of persecuted Christians in Syria, while many mainstream Christians remain silent and concentrate their energies on demonising Israel

    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

    Start-Up Nation: Israel's market reforms

    It seems that Israel's tax cuts under Prime Minister Netanyahu provide a real world example of how to increase investment and wealth. Paradoxical as it may sound, phasing out U.S. economic aid may also have made Israelis better off

    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

    Murderous religious intolerance in the Middle East

    Across the Middle East there is terrible repression of religious and ethno-religious groups. Christians and Jews are especially at risk. Israel, meanwhile, is a beacon of religious tolerance, not that you'd know it from the Western media

    Hate, terror, and the Holy places in Jerusalem

    The international community must challenge the preposterous lie from the "moderate" Palestinian leadership that Israel is planning to harm or destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Innocent Jews are being slaughtered because of it. And the silence of the West, especially the media, helps allow the slaughter to continue

    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?
