    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

    It's the Palestinians who don't want a 2 state solution

    Obama's latest reckless and ignorant intervention against Israel shows how mindful we should be of the damage he could yet cause before we see the back of him in January 2017

    Guardian descends into bizarre anti-Israeli dreamland...literally

    The Guardian's hate campaign against Israel has been in full swing for a decade and a half. But where do you go once all your bigotry has been refuted? Bizarrely, this is where: the Guardian has run an op-ed by a priest having a dream about Israeli "apartheid". No kidding!

    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

    Time to get a grip over Israel-Palestine conflict

    The ridiculous and self-destructive Palestinian leadership continues to mourn the entirely just and legitimate re-establishment of Israel. But that's no excuse for people in the West to indulge this nonsense, especially while carnage engulfs the MidEast

    Did Palestinians poison Yasser Arafat?

    The totally weird, yet predictable, conspiracy theories about Yasser Arafat's death continue to this day. The Palestinians can't make up their mind whether it was a Jewish conspiracy or a Palestinian one. You try making peace with people who "think" like this

    UN guilt and Hamas war crimes

    Even the UN has now admitted that its buildings and schools were used by Hamas to fire rockets at Israeli civilians during last year's Gaza operation. But the mainstream media and many UN institutions like UNRWA still play a very dishonest game against Israel, and in favour of terrorists

    Bizarre Green bigotry against Israel

    Laughing-stock UK Green Party leader Natalie Bennett has reaffirmed her party's support for boycotts against Israel, underlining in typically bizarre style that the ideological Left in Britain remains the main repository of bigotry against the Jewish state. UPDATE: See insane, Nazi-level video link at the bottom

    Gunter Grass and Germany's Nazi past

    Can Germans be held collectively responsible for the Nazi crimes? Gunter Grass misstated his personal story while asking in his literary works for Germany to be honest about the Nazi past. His life was itself a metaphor for the confusions of his own people in relation to the unique horrors the Nazis perpetrated

    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
