On Sunday, three Israeli soldiers were wounded when a Palestinian man opened fire at an IDF checkpoint near the West Bank settlement of Beit El. The Palestinian terrorist (a member of the PA’s […]
Cross posted from the blog of Richard Millett There was a burning question at the back of my mind when two highly successful Israeli Arabs came to London today to tell a […]
Here’s the latest installment in our monthly round-up of BDS fails. (When debating those who contend that BDS is succeeding, consider citing some of these examples.) Economic BDS Fails: Florida becomes 5th […]
Richard Norton-Taylor is a Guardian defence and security correspondent and until recently was the paper’s security editor. He currently edits the Guardian Defence and Security blog with Ewen MacAskill. Norton-Taylor’s latest post at the blog (‘Spies, […]
As we’ve noted previously when commenting on misleading Guardian headlines, it would be difficult to find an example of terror in world – outside of Israel – where media outlets prioritize the […]
A 2012 Economist article claimed that Israelis and their Prime Minister fears Iran because they suffer from Auschwitz complex – a “ghetto mentality” evidently based on obsessing over past suffering and reinforced by the Jewish […]
Yesterday, early evening Israeli time, the Guardian‘s Jerusalem correspondent Peter Beaumont reported on two Palestinian terror attacks since Sunday. The first incident, on Sunday evening, involved a fatal attack on a 39-year-old woman in […]

Early yesterday evening, a terrorist stabbed a 39-year-old woman, Dafna Meir, to death in front of her teenage daughter at their home in the town of Otinel, near Kiryat Araba in the […]
As we noted earlier in the week, a video was broadcast on Israel’s Channel 2 which revealed that two Israeli “human rights activists” – including a Palestinian from the NGO B’Tselem and an Israeli Jew named Ezra Nawi – […]
A Dec. 25th Guardian report by Peter Beaumont (West Bank risks being plunged into chaos in 2016, warn Palestinian officials), on the response by PA officials to the latest wave of terror, […]
Palestinians are quite adept at cynically exploiting clashes in Bethlehem between Palestinians and Israeli soldiers to take advantage of the UK media’s appetite for Christmas–themed narratives of the conflict. Sometimes, they even drag Santa Claus into […]
In a speech just hours after a Palestinian terrorist rammed his car into pedestrians in Jerusalem earlier in the week, injuring 12 Israelis (including a 15-month-old baby), PA President Mahmoud Abbas referred […]
A great contrast in priorities was on display at the Independent in editorial decisions involving two articles published yesterday. Last night, they published a full report on an incident in the […]
To those who hate Israel, it will reveal feet of clay. The Guardian regards the film as so useful to its anti-Israeli mandate that it ran reviews on August 39th , October 15th and October 18th to drive home the message (“These soldiers had seen the brutal way conquered civilians were treated by their comrades“).
Either way, Bell’s cartoon certainly seems to be echoing frequent Palestinian efforts to present themselves as the direct descendents of Jesus and Mary. Unlike the ‘adoration’ for baby Jesus by the kings, Johnson crudely tramples on the sanctity of the virgin birth.

Despite the ubiquity of smart phones, it’s still not every day that a Palestinian terrorist attack is clearly captured on video. This may explain why a clip of a Palestinian woman stabbing […]
The reason why such journalists always look for an Israeli root cause when explaining such acts of terror – whether it’s the settlements, “threats” to al-Aqsa, hopelessness, etc. – is that they immediately discount any explanation (no matter how grounded in empirical data) suggesting that attacks have a racist (antisemitic) motive – an ideological orientation which has fed anti-Jewish violence in the region for well over a century.
Most Israelis – even those who don’t support the settlement enterprise – don’t believe that continued construction across the green line (the overwhelming majority of which is located in areas which will likely become part of Israel in any future peace deal) is as important as the answer to one question: What will happen the day after a ‘peace deal’ is signed?
