From the Editor: Rael Jean Isaac

The London Review of Bigotry                 Just Journalism, founded in 2008 as a sorely needed initiative to monitor the bias in the British media’s coverage of Israel and the Middle East, has issued a report on The London Review of Books (LRB).  Melanie Phillips observes that the LRB is important because it “plays a key […]


Wikileaks As Wake-up Call by Rael Jean Isaac

              There is no mystery about Julian Assange’s motives in releasing the avalanche of secret documents known as Wikileaks—he has declared he sought  to deal a mortal blow to American power.  In The Wall Street Journal (Dec. 6) Gordon Crovitz thows light on Assange’s bizarre weltanschauung.  Crovitz writes that in 2006 Assange published two essays […]


For the Price of a Barrel of Oil by Daniel Greenfield

    Following in the footsteps of Chavez and Castro, Argentina and Brazil’s regimes [now joined by Bolivia] have declared that they recognize Abbas’ Palestinian Authority “as a free and independent state within the borders defined in 1967.

Durban III And Your Tax Dollars by Anne Bayefsky

              The good folks at the UN are hard at work, busy spending your hard-earned cash on such events as a New York City bash known as “Durban III” next September.

2010: Tony And Mario And Harold And Finkler by Ruth King

              An interesting year comes to a close.               First the epiphany of Tony Blair:  The tony former Prime Minister was a star player in Europe’s bullying of Israel, pushing for serial appeasements in exchange for escalating terror.
