    US should use French ruling to combat UN Israel bias

    A recent ruling in France shows that Palestinian abuse of "international law" against israel does not always work. The Trump administration should heed this in battling United Nations bias against Israel

    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

    Trump must understand vicious Palestinian politics

    The power struggles in Palestinian politics make the contest between Presidential candidates in American politics look likely a friendly game of chess, and that's just among the "moderates" who include Holocaust deniers, and former stooges of the KGB. The incoming Trump administration must wise up to this and avoid Obama's blindness

    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

    Leading Democrat Engel says warnings to end Palestinian funding over terror are real

    Eliot Engel, the ranking Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, has warned that Palestinians really do risk losing American funding if they do not end terrorism and incitement

    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

    Palestinian deformative years

    Teach kids colours, numbers and their ABCs and they’ll embrace life and adulthood. Teach killing, nihilism and AK-47s and they’ll embrace death and the afterlife. Palestinian children are brainwashed right from the start. Rejectionism and the cult of death are at the core of their culture

    Are the Palestinians starting a religious war?

    It is a constant and continuing disgrace that Palestinians, official leaders as well as parents, celebrate and express joy over children who have died after committing terrorist acts as martyrs and heroes. Peace is therefore further away than ever

    Palestinian terror. A new chapter, or same old story?

    Mahmoud Abbas is a man who speaks out of both sides of his mouth when it comes to terrorism. His venomous and hate filled tirades against Israel have encouraged Palestinians to become ‘martyrs’ in the cause of holy war. Meanwhile, the West refuses to face reality

    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

    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

    Round up the usual suspects: Foul play in soccer

    Amid the huge storm of controversy in FIFA over corruption, there was another notable failure for the anti-Semitic BDS movement against Israel, as the Palestinians humiliatingly had to withdraw their football boycott motion

    No International Amnesty for the Palestinians

    Amnesty International does not have a good track record in a fair and reasoned approach to Israel. So its recent report lambasting Palestinian attempts to slaughter Israeli civilians marks a surprising change. Could this be a new start, or will Obama and the EU just ignore inconvenient truths?

    We should make life harder for Palestinian leadership

    While the Palestinians continue to both glorify terrorism and make negotiations impossible by their antics at outfits like the International Criminal Court, the West should be imposing travel bans and tax freezes on the Palestinians of their own. It shouldn't be solely left to Israel to make life tougher for the duplicitous Palestinian leadership

    Palestinian leadership glorifies Saddam Hussein

    Most of the world is just glad that Saddam Hussein isn't around to slaughter people any more. But the Palestinian leadership is on a campaign of his glorification, raising concerns that should they ever get a state, it won't be a model of democracy
