How totalitarianism is winning in the west

Credit to the left-leaning Atlantic magazine for running a piece by Peter Beinart, who has actually looked at what is happening in American society and reached an uncomfortable conclusion which would be hard to find elsewhere in the media – and which is all-too pertinent in the wake of Charlottesville. For Beinart warns that the left is lurching into totalitarianism and violence. “Antifa” purport to be anti-fascist. But they define as fascist anyone they disagree with including mainstream conservatives. Hence their violent suppression of commentators and scholars such as the…

America’s cultural civil war

Trump’s response was indeed inadequate. Much more worrying, though, was what actually happened. For this was not, as widely portrayed, a clash between fascists and anti-fascists. It was between two groups each of which perpetrate hatred and intolerance, stand against freedom and seek to impose their views of society and human nature by force. As US president, he inescapably delineates the contours of what is socially acceptable and what is beyond the pale. He should therefore have specifically denounced white supremacism as having no place in American society. At the…

Why the world doesn’t “get it” about Israel

When some years ago I was interviewed on the Israeli current affairs TV show Ro’im Olam and described Israel’s PR as “a joke”, it caused a sensation that has never quite subsided. The points I was making in that interview remain as timely – and are still as generally unsaid or even unsayable – today. The video of that interview went viral. You can watch it below (it switches to English after a couple of minutes).

On the wrong side?

Join me below as I suggest to Avi Abelow of Israel Video Network that those who don’t “get” the war of civilisation which is now raging will almost inevitably also fail to “get” the true nature and implications of the Arab war against the State of Israel – and that includes certain members of the Trump administration.

Trump was wrong, but America is being torn between twin evils

What happened yesterday in Charlottesville, Virginia was dreadful and frightening on several levels. The first shocking thing was just the very sight of neo-Nazis and white supremacists openly parading with swastika flags, demonstrating their bigoted, hateful and violent ideology. The next horrible thing was the violence that broke out between the neo-Nazis and counter-demonstrators. It’s unclear who started it, but there is evidence that at least some of it was unprovoked on both sides. There was then a shocking car-ramming terrorist attack against anti-Nazi demonstrators which killed one person and…

Thank goodness for the Japanese ambassador

The BBC is still pushing the hysterical line that it is President Trump, not Kim Jong-un, who is edging the world to the brink of war. The BBC News website, reporting that Trump is “ramping up the rhetorical brinkmanship”, thoughtfully provides us with evidence of Trump’s “nuclear fixation” (Trump’s!!) and also features a delightfully amusing little quiz question inviting people to guess which leader made a particular bombastic remark, Donald Trump or Kim Jong-un. Nucleardum and Nucleardee, eh? You could die laughing, couldn’t you. The BBC’s message is thus that…

Who frightens the alt-left most? Three guesses…

A country’s leader terrifies the world by threatening to unleash nuclear war. He’s nuts? Sure. North Korea’s Kim Jong-un? No, America’s Donald J Trump. Yup, that’s right. For US Democrats and the mainstream media, President Trump is more terrifying than Kim Jong-un, the psychotic dictator of North Korea. Pyongyang is now said by the US Defence Intelligence Agency to have produced nuclear weapons for delivery by ballistic missiles which can reach American cities. In response to this revelation, President Trump said: “North Korea best not make any more threats to…
