Trump, Netanyahu and primal rage

Ron Jager, an IDF veteran and former Commander of Israel’s Central Psychiatric Military Clinic for Reserve Soldiers, has written an insightful piece comparing the unhinged and slanderous attempts to oust President Donald Trump with the unhinged and slanderous attempts to oust Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Jager notes: “The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, has lead Israel to become a world leader of innovation, a nation at peace with the majority of the Muslim Sunni nations, a country where the life expectancy is one of the world’s longest, and…

Cowardice allows Muslim extremism to thrive

What’s the point of creating a commission to counter extremism when the government itself won’t deal with it? What’s the point of Prevent if attitudes which help form a continuum of beliefs feeding into extremism and terrorism are being inculcated in state-run schools? The reason for this abdication of responsibility is cowardice. The government is too frightened to deal with those who either promote or wink at non-violent Islamic extremism. Why is it so frightened? Because its deepest fear is that such groups or individuals may have a critical mass…

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s… JNS!

The Jewish News syndicate, or JNS, is a network of writers, editors, scholars and publishers who are fighting the campaign of lies, delegitimisation and bigotry against Israel and the Jewish people by producing balanced and factual coverage. Its website can be found here and is a valuable resource for all who want to be properly informed about Israel and the Jewish world. I am pleased to tell you that, from tomorrow, I will be writing a fortnightly column for JNS and hope you will join me there.

Palestinianism is over. Someone please tell the British

Apparently insulted by repeated slights from Britain’s political class and populace, President Donald Trump has decided to cancel his proposed visit there. Desperate to rescue the all-important post-Brexit US trade deal that might now be in jeopardy, Prime Minister Theresa May is seeking to “clear the air” with the president at the World Economic Forum in Davos next week. Good luck with that one. Mrs. May herself has contributed to the hysteria about Trump’s fitness for office by publicly condemning some of his tweets. Rather more to the point, however,…

Eugenic libels, Jews barred at Warwick U

This all gets ever more dreadful. A vile event was put on at Warwick university last night. It was advertised as featuring unhinged claims that Israel was using eugenics to enhance the Jewish birthrate at the expense of Arab reproduction, and a disgusting proposal to retaliate by using eugenics to do the same in reverse to Israel. The indefatigable David Collier and two other Jews tried to attend the meeting, which was supposedly a public event. They were barred from entry. Collier writes: “It is difficult to describe the emotions…

Abbas tears off the mask

For years, America, Britain and the EU have insisted that Mahmoud Abbas is a moderate and a statesman-in-waiting who deserves to be rewarded with a state of Palestine. For years, they have insisted that he is prepared to live alongside the state of Israel. For years, they have blamed Israel for intransigence in not believing this and thus not agreeing to give him land that they thought he would use to threaten the lives of its citizens. For years some of us have argued that Abbas should be considered instead…

Perfidious Albion (yet again)

After the UK’s morally repellent and intellectually vacuous support for the vicious UN resolution against President Trump’s recognition that the capital of Israel is the capital of Israel, in what sense can Britain now claim to be an ally of either Israel or America? And what price now all Prime Minister Theresa May’s warm words of sympathy and support for Israel and the Jewish people?

The true presidential collusion scandal

A US President colluding with a hostile foreign power against the interests of his own country? Sounds like a scandalous abuse of the US constitution demanding high level investigation. Yet while Special Counsel Robert Mueller pursues his corrupted investigation of a non-existent collusion scandal involving President Trump, a real one has been exposed involving President Obama. Politico has published an explosive investigative piece by Josh Meyer which states that the Obama administration shut down a federal inquiry into international drug smuggling, money laundering and terrorism by Hezbollah in order to…

The British and European perfidy

Palm Beach, Florida, Friday Twenty-four hours after President Trump’s watershed speech recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, there has been predictable Palestinian violence and equally predictable, almost unanimous condemnation from Western European leaders and the western left. What needs to be understood is that the former is symbiotically connected to the latter. As I said in my blog post yesterday, the Palestinians use violence in order to get a reaction that advances their agenda. Until now, the west has duly obliged. For a variety of reasons including fear, ideology and bigotry…

A historic watershed that shames Britain and Europe

It’s a seismic event, a great decision and a historic watershed. This is where blackmail and intimidation are faced down. This is where appeasement ends. President Trump’s speech recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has signaled that, for America, the century- long Arab attempt to destroy Israel’s legitimacy – the essence of the Middle East conflict – has failed. Trump was careful and subtle. He did not say all of Jerusalem was Israel’s capital. The US will support a two-state solution if Israel and the Arabs agree to it. The boundaries…
