Why and When was the Myth of al-Aqsa Created? by Mordechai Kedar from

q_top.png The importance of Jerusalem for Jews and Christians is beyond dispute, since the connection of this city to Judaism and Christianity is part of universal concepts about history and theology. However, when it comes to modern politics, we hear over and over that Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims demand that Jerusalem become the capital of the future Palestinian state, owing to its holiness to Islam. The question is how and when this city became holy to Muslims. ...

Countering the Big Lie by Naomi Ragen from

There was a time during one of the so-called intifadas (forgive me for not remembering if it was the first, second, or in-between; all that savagery and murder runs together seamlessly in my head these days) that the Palestinians claimed that the Jews had no connection at all to Jerusalem, or the land of Israel. A statement like that, similar to denying the Holocaust, is so insane it leaves one sputtering in wordless confusion. Itís like being asked to prove you arenít dead. ...

Deluded Pollyannas can’t tackle jihad by Janet Albrechtsen from

226753-c9289446-5e80-11e4-9f52-9555a1656cbe.png IN the real world, combating terrorism means pursuing the least worst options. There are no absolutes. No absolute right to freedom of speech or freedom of association. Given politicians can do only what we allow them to do, itís critical we understand the threat, the gaps in existing laws, and that the freedom of the majority depends on treading on the liberties of a few. ...

Why Europe is irrational about Israel by David P Goldman from

Coming soon after Swedenís recognition of a non-existent state of Palestine, the British Parliamentís 274-to-12 resolution to recognize ďPalestineĒ flags a sea-change in European sentiment towards Israel. France is thinking of following suit. The European Community bureaucracy, meanwhile, has readied sanctions against Israel. One remonstrates in vain. ...

Obama, Media Call for Segregation in Israel by Seth Mandel from

Hamas’s Propaganda by Deed in Gaza by Daryl McCann from

Europe’s alarming new anti-semitism by Jonathan Sacks from

THIS year, Europeís Jews entered Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year, with a degree of apprehension I have not known in my lifetime. Anti-Semitism has returned to Europe within living memory of the Holocaust. Never again has become ever again. ...

Minority groups should engage in self-reflection, not victim mentality by Gerard Henderson from

508140-eb97a520-4ab8-11e4-8fca-1a009f6e5217.png Some Muslim Australians have done extremely well in Australian society; others less so. This is the familiar story of immigrants within an immigrant society. But there is a bottom line. All Australian citizens enjoy the benefits of Medicare, free school education and a generous welfare system. Viewed in this light, no Australians are victims in the accepted use of the term. ...

Learning to Hate Zion by Tom Wilson from

The global backlash against Israelís recent war in Gaza was far from unexpected. Yet the ferocity of the demonstrations, the strength of feeling against Israel, and the mediaís total lack of sympathy for the Jewish state descended to startling depths. For while campaigns against Israel may have become familiar, the 70 percent of Israelis who were forced day and night to dash to bomb shelters as their country was dragged into a ghastly war of their enemyís making must surely have wondered anew: How can the world not see the rightness of our cause? ...

Prince Turki of Saudi Arabia should speak to the Knesset by Michael Curtis from

It used to be true of relationships between countries in the Middle East, as Harry Truman once said of politics in Washington, D.C., that if you need a friend get a dog. However, no one can be unaware of the bewildering changes in those relationships that have occurred in the last few years. With the advent of Islamic Sunni militant terrorism, the civil war in Syria, Shia Iran's rush to achieve nuclear facilities, and the collapse of dysfunctional countries like Libya, Syria, Iraq, and Lebanon as states, the tidal wave of change has become a tsunami. ...

What the Arab world produces by Dennis Prager from

At least since the early part of the 20th century, aside from oil, the Arab world has produced and exported two products. It has produced essentially no technology, medicine or anything else in the world of science. It has almost no contributions to world literature, art or to intellectual development. ...

The case against Qatar by Elizabeth Dickinson from

455234507sheikhcrop.png The tiny, gas-rich emirate has pumped tens of millions of dollars through obscure funding networks to hard-line Syrian rebels and extremist Salafists, building a foreign policy that punches above its weight. After years of acquiescing -- even taking advantage of its ally's meddling -- Washington may finally be punching back. ...

Secondly, if Iíve learned anything in 42 yearsí military experience, much of it in command, itís that you donít do it if youíre not going to do it properly.Ē ...

ABC’s Q&A turned into a platform for crass anti-Western propaganda by Paul Cleary & Gina Rushton from

The civilised world is losing the war on terror by Greg Sheridan from

IT does no good to delude ourselves. The civilised world is not winning the war against terrorism. The assembled national leaders at the UN this week who denounced the group that now calls itself Islamic State was impressive ó everyone from Barack Obama to Tony Abbott, Britainís David Cameron and Turkeyís Recep Tayyip Erdogan. When the US this week undertook air strikes against Islamic State positions in Iraq and, for the first time, Syria, it was actively supported by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. Sunni Arab states struck Sunni terrorists in a nation, Syria, governed by Alawites, who are broadly part of the Shia dispensation in Islam. ...
