Israel, and only Israel, is judged exclusively by a list of its (perceived and real) flaws. With remarkable confidence, journalists throw together opinions, a few stories, select quotes, and feelings of impending doom – and hey presto, Israel is demonised. Israel is not a uniquely bad country. Journalism about Israel is often uniquely bad journalism
The reality is that this is an antisemitic book written by a fascist sympathiser: anyone who endorses it is either a fellow traveller with antisemitism, or an antisemite themselves.
The Economist has been gushing about what it calls ‘Morocco’s little idyll of Jewish-Muslim coexistence’. Yet, the Nov. 2nd article it admits that only three Jews still live in Essaouira – a city which used to have as many Jews as Muslims before the great exodus to Israel.
By Richard Millett, London. It seems the Guardian is resorting to favouriting its own journalism. Maybe there aren’t many objective commentators who will do it for them? First, it endorses its own […]
By Richard Millett, London. In June 2016 Jo Cox, MP for Batley and Spen, was brutally murdered by a far-right extremist. In 2015 Jo made her maiden speech to the House of […]
By Richard Millett, London. What a nasty, bigoted, ahistorical piece Donald Macintyre wrote for yesterday’s Guardian. Macintyre is upset that while there is a Jewish state in light of the 1917 Balfour Declaration […]

The story of the eviction of the Arab Shamasneh family from a house in east Jerusalem’s Shimon Hatzaddik neighbourhood has spread like wildfire, including in the British media. These media outlets have failed to report that the Shamasnehs were evicted largely because they owed hundreds of thousands of shekels in back rent.
The Guardian’s Sarah Helms erroneously suggests that Israel is responsible for the recent death of newborns in Gaza, while all but ignoring the role of Hamas and the Palestinian Authority in the current humanitarian crisis.
CAMERA’s Israel office yesterday prompted correction of an Associated Press article (also published at The Guardian) which had erroneously stated that “Iran remains on the State Department’s list of sponsors of terrorism for its support of anti-Israel groups”
Can the Good Friday Agreement can be used as a template for advancing Israeli-Palestinian peace? Though many like to link the Republicans’ struggle for independence to the Palestinian movement, the differences are actually quite stark.
How many people spreading Holocaust denial material would you expect to find in a group who claim to be “anti-racist”?
The Palestine Expo was advertised as a cultural event and a family affair. So I went to the QEII Conference Centre to engage with the atmosphere with my wife and youngest son. I knew that the content of the speeches would be full of hate, so rather than listen to hours of anti-Israeli rhetoric, I wanted to enjoy the exhibits and activities. Most of all I looked forward to the food. Myself, my wife, and my eleven-year-old child were evicted half way through our lunch.
Israel-bashers like Sunny Hundal don’t like anyone getting on with Israel and will trash anyone who tries. No matter the benefits collaboration with Israel will bring to India – hi-tech interchange, leading edge water-management and other farming techniques, counter-terrorism intelligence sharing. The Israel-hater is willing to pay any price in other people’s misery.
Palestine Solidarity Campaign: A case study in the correlation between anti-Zionism and antisemitism
Rather than asking whether opposing a Jewish state or supporting BDS is inherently anti-Semitic, London based blogger David Collier asks a more practical question: are the people who espouse these views also espousing ideas representing classic anti-Semitism?
Shlaim claimed that the “intrusion of a foreign entity in the shape of the Zionist movement showed a total disregard (by the British) for the indigenous population”.
This attacker had just watched a film with multiple scenes of Israeli soldiers committing acts of violence against Palestinian children and wanted someone (preferably a Jew) to take it out on.
Hezbollah humiliated on streets of London as their Al Quds Day protest is blocked by pro-Israel activists.
We came we saw we conquered! While the Hezbollah Al Quds Day terror parade was allowed to take place on Sunday 18th June in the heart of London’s West End a group of 20 to 30 pro-Israel activists stepped out into the road to block the march no sooner than after it had just started.
