“Jewish Voice for Peace” (JVP): What the Media is Concealing

The ADL isn’t the only mainstream Jewish group in JVP’s crosshairs. In 2017, JVP launched an antisemitic campaign against what it called the “Deadly Exchange,” to target mainstream American Jewish organizations as well as Israeli Jews. The campaign was based on stoking political and racial tensions within the US to blame Jews for what it called “racist policing in the…

Deconstructing “Israeli Apartheid”

While Israel’s adversaries have always charged the country with many misdeeds, only relatively recently have these alleged transgressions coalesced into the so-called BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions), modeled after the campaign against apartheid South Africa, and based on the allegation that Israel too is an apartheid state. An integral part of the BDS campaign is Israeli Apartheid Week on…

Is Israel an Apartheid State?

Apartheid was a horrific and brutal system of racism and segregation in South Africa, which created two separate, distinct societies, one of the free white minority, and the other being the oppressed majority. For example, Black South Africans were barred from many jobs, and had to walk on different sides of the same streets. In Israel, all citizens are treated…

Human Rights Watch and its Tunnel Deceptions — Updated with UNRWA Confirmation

The Guardian continued its assault on the legitimacy of the International Holocaust Rememberance Association’s Working Definition of Antisemitism today by publishing a letter full of distortions about the definition. The IHRA definition, we should note, has been adopted or endorsed by 30 (democratic) countries, the EU Council, EU Parliament, EU Commission, EU Council, the UN Secretary General, the UN Special…

Guardian letter by Palestinian Artists

The Guardian published an op-ed length letter by dozens of Palestinian and Arab academics, journalists and intellectuals (including PLO official Hanan Ashrawi and Guardian contributors Raja Shehadeh and Rashid Khalidi) taking aim at the IHRA working definition of antisemitism. The letter (“Palestinian rights and the IHRA definition of antisemitism”, Nov. 29) begins with a variation of the Livingstone Formulation, by…

Guardian letter lies about IHRA Antisemitism definition

The Guardian continued its assault on the legitimacy of the International Holocaust Rememberance Association’s Working Definition of Antisemitism today by publishing a letter full of distortions about the definition. The IHRA definition, we should note, has been adopted or endorsed by 30 (democratic) countries, the EU Council, EU Parliament, EU Commission, EU Council, the UN Secretary General, the UN Special…

Does the IHRA Suppress Palestinian Voices?

Although many claim that the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance Definition of Antisemitism silences Palestinian voices, this is not the case. The definition is a guideline which has been adopted by many nations and universities around the world, to understand and address the rising rates of antisemitism. Anti-Israel detractors claim that the IHRA silences them because it defines certain elements of…

National Geographic and Water

National Geographic magazine has an unfortunate habit of regularly publishing inaccurate and intemperate articles about Israel, which have falsely blamed Israel for expelling Palestinians, for being responsible for declines in the Arab Christian population (which has actually increased in Israel), for discriminating against Israeli Arabs, and for oppressing Bethlehem. To this list of false accusations the magazine has now added…

Israel Recycles Water, Amira Hass Recycles False Water Charges

Amira Hass must really like false Palestinian charges that Israel is stealing their water, since she keeps on repeating those false Palestinian charges, requiring us to repeat the refutation. Whereas previously Hass charged that profligate Israelis “use three times more water a day in their households as West Bank Palestinians do,” in her latest effort she charges that: She also…

Backgrounder: Does Israel Use “Palestinian” Water?

In recent years press accounts have charged Israel with unfairly and illegally draining water from “Palestinian aquifers,” enabling Israelis to enjoy green lawns, clean cars and full swimming pools, while leaving Palestinians with barely enough to drink. Thus, the New York Times reported last year that: In the West Bank, water allocation is a zero-sum game, and Palestinians consider local…
