They want me silenced. Brandeis complies by Lori Loewenthal Marcus

aayanhirsiali.jpg.png I wish to dissociate myself from the university’s statement, which implies that I was in any way consulted about this decision. On the contrary, I was completely shocked when President Frederick Lawrence called me—just a few hours before issuing a public statement—to say that such a decision had been made. ...

Falafel factions, Likudniks and Bob Carr: inside the battle for Israeli influence by Chip Le Grand, John Ferguson and Troy Bramston

ACCORDING to Bob Carr, this was the falafel faction laid bare. Mark Dreyfus, with an “umbilical attachment’’ to the cause of Israel. Stephen Conroy, disturbed at the turn of events, signalling to ally Bill Shorten to join the fray, “as if he was in a Kingsville branch meeting itching to do in the local lefties’’. Julia Gillard, prime minister, determined to vote no, putting Australia “in lock-step with the Likud’’. ...

One voice on free speech by Janet Albrechtsen

AS Australia debates the repeal of section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act, let me introduce you to two Canadians. One is a champion of progres­sive causes, the other is a staunch conservative. One played a critical role in setting up the first of the human rights commissions in Canada, the other was hauled ­before these same human rights commissions for writing things that caused offence to a few ­Muslims. ...

The retrograde Israeli Left by Tom Wilson

Listening to Israel’s “progressives” you might think it was still 1994, as if two decades of failed peace efforts, Palestinian intransigence, and unrelenting incitement and terrorism had simply never happened. They speak as if they’re still living in some heyday of the Oslo peace accords. Naturally, it is the role of the political opposition in any democracy to find fault with the actions of governing political rivals, but what Israel’s left-wing politicians are saying goes far beyond normal critique of government policy despite the fact that, although they would never admit it, the current government’s strategy for peace talks is not fundamentally different from what they themselves propose. ...

The postulate of illegitimacy by Sarah Honig

jabotinsky-in-acre-prison-1920-perfidious-albion-knew-whom-to-blame.jpg?w=203&h= Something strikingly dramatic happened in this country exactly on this date 94 years ago. Cries of Itbach el-Yahud(slaughter the Jews) filled the air. It was the first coordinated mass-murder offensive launched by infamous Jerusalem Mufti Haj-Amin el-Husseini (who would in time become an avid Nazi collaborator, Hitler’s personal guest in Berlin during WWII and a wanted war-criminal). ...

Racist ideas are more effectively countered in debate, rather than in court or jail by Barry Cohen

AS General Dwight Eisenhower led the Allied forces that swept across Europe he could not believe what he saw as he walked through the concentration camps and gas chambers in which millions of Jews died, along with social democrats, communists, Gypsies, homosexuals and any group hated by the Nazis. Eisen­hower demanded that everything be recorded so future generations couldn’t claim it didn’t happen. ...

Hate speech best defeated in a free exchange of ideas by Editorial

AUSTRALIA, as John Howard said this week, is not a racist nation but one that respects and cherishes an open, tolerant society. That understanding should be the starting point of the current debate over freedom of speech and the Abbott government’s proposed changes to the Racial Discrimination Act. ...

Into the fray: To my colleague Caroline, a caveat by Martin Sherman

showimage.ashx?id=192690&h=236&w=370.png I strongly concur with Caroline B. Glick’s diagnosis of the fatal failings of the two-state formula, and disagree just as strongly with the prescription she offers to remedy them. ...

Why Andrew Bolt’s distress is truly uncomfortable by Michael Gawenda

Andrew Bolt feels betrayed by Jewish community leaders. That he should feel this way is one small but illuminating -- and disturbing -- consequence of the debate about whether or not section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act should be retained or significantly reshaped as the Abbott government has promised. ...

A Murderer’s Life and the Chances of Peace by Jonathan S. Tobin

The New York Times did a valuable public service today by profiling the life of Muqdad Salah. But the story, which demonstrated how unlikely peace between Israelis and the Palestinians is, wasn’t intended as an indictment of Palestinian society. Salah, 47, is, as the Times reported, doing his best to make up for lost time. You see, he lost 20 years of his life to a prison sentence in an Israeli jail from which he was liberated last year. To help ease his transition back to society, the resident of Burqa in the West Bank got a generous settlement from the Palestinian Authority, an honorary rank of brigadier general in the PA military, and praise from his neighbors and fellow Palestinians. In the seven months since he got out, he has married a much younger woman, remodeled a family home, and bought a business. He’s now the picture of a successful Palestinian, but he’s got a couple of problems. One is that the no-show salary of $1,800 a month he’s collecting from the PA (which gave him $100,000 at his release) isn’t enough to live the life of ease he craves. The other is that his travel is restricted. ...

Why bring down Ya’alon? by Caroline B. Glick

Obama’s Latest Victim: MSNBC by Jonathan S. Tobin

As his sinking poll ratings have demonstrated, a lot of Americans are unhappy with President Obama. Weak leadership abroad, ObamaCare, and various scandals have all combined to send his popularity into a tailspin from which he is not likely to recover before the end of his term in office. But perhaps the ones who should be most angry with him are his biggest fans in the media rather than his conservative antagonists. Like the World War Two era pop classic teaches us, Obama is demonstrating that “you always hurt the ones you love.” ...

Why 'Moderate Islam' is an Oxymoron by Raymond Ibrahim

At a time when terrorism committed in the name of Islam is rampant, we are continuously being assured—especially by three major institutions that play a dominant role in forming the Western mindset, namely, mainstream media, academia, and government—that the sort of Islam embraced by "radicals," "jihadis," and so forth, has nothing to do with "real" Islam. ...

Israel’s Identity as Jewish State at Heart of Mideast Conflict by Ben Cohen

Ah, the devious Benjamin Netanyahu! Just when we are on the cusp of a breakthrough in Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations, Israel’s slippery prime minister introduces a potential deal-breaker, in the form of insisting that the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state. ...

Why doesn't the media cover Jihad attacks against Mid East Christians by Raymond Ibrahim

The United Nations, Western governments, media, universities, and talking heads everywhere insist that Palestinians are suffering tremendous abuses from the state of Israel. Conversely, the greatest human rights tragedy of our time—radical Muslim persecution of Christians, including in Palestinian controlled areas—is devotedly ignored. ...

Open letter to the Presbyterian Church USA from an Iraqi Jew by Joe Samuels

joe-samuels-medium.png Your comment that “the Jews in Arab lands lived in harmonious integration and coexistence in their host countries and were destabilized because of Zionism in the 19th century” is totally misleading and wrong. First there was never a continuous peaceful coexistence between Muslim and Jews. There was existence of the Jews in Arab lands for thousands of years, but we lived as second-class citizen dhimmis. ...

Al Jazeera America: Twisting Israel News, Targeting Opinion Makers by Myron Kaplan

Al Jazeera America, the satellite and cable television news network owned and operated by the wealthy sheikdom of oil and gas-rich Qatar, can’t seem to present its Arab-Israeli news straight. This should come as no surprise. The Qatari ruling family supported the Muslim Brotherhood-led government of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, and the Brotherhood’s Palestinian spin-off Hamas calls for the destruction of Israel and the Jewish people. ...

For the Israeli Left, Democracy Is Just Too Democratic by John Podhoretz

David Landau, one of the lions of Israeli journalism, published a stunningly revealing article in Haaretz at the beginning of February—one that gave perfect voice to the Israeli left’s disgust with the nation’s own democratic system. Due to the efforts of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Landau wrote, “the dream of Israel’s peace camp is coming true.” The dream itself is the “most yearned-for and most oft-repeated” wish, though Landau cautioned it is only spoken of “in private.” ...

The double-edged sword of Jihad by Raymond Ibrahim

Islamic nations are again learning that the jihad is a volatile instrument of war that can easily backfire on those who preach it; that "holy war" is hardly limited to fighting and subjugating "infidels"—whether the West in general, Israel in particular, or the millions of non-Muslim minorities under Islam—but can also be used to fight "apostates," that is, Muslims accused of not being Islamic enough. ...

In Hebron, victory at last by Jerold Auerbach

The ancient city of Hebron, twenty miles south of Jerusalem, has long been a source of seething conflict between Arabs and Jews. According to the biblical narrative (Gen. 23), Abraham purchased the Cave of Machpelah for four hundred silver shekels as the burial place for Sarah. It was the first parcel of land owned by the Jewish people in their promised land. ...

Bashing Israel and Journalistic Integrity by Isi Leibler

The article by John Lyons is an example of the bitter battles we face from journalists who are either biased and intent on demonizing Israel or naively take at face value the fantasies presented to them by Arabs or delusional Israeli extremists. ...
