A Blight Called UNRWA William Mehlman

A riot by an estimated  1,000 residents of the Kalandiya Palestinian refugee camp, hurling concrete blocks and dismantled  washing machines from rooftops at IDF and Israeli border police attempting to arrest a Tanzim gun-runner, has once again thrown a spotlight on what Middle East Forum scholar Asaf Romirowsky has called the “toxic enabler”  of a […]

From the Editor Rael Jean Isaac

Holocaust Inversion                 Peter Martino reports how, in Belgium, history lessons about the Holocaust are being used to stoke hatred of Israel.  Nothing better illustrates the aptness of Melanie Phillips’ book title The World Turned Upside Down.                   Many of the teachers are easily manipulated ignoramuses.  Two Belgian researchers, Jan Swerts and Kurt Monten […]

A Palestinian State with Temporary Borders – A Historical Catastrophe Elyakim Haetzni

Know Your Military Colonists Daniel Greenfield

              “Military Colonist” is a term that has gone out of fashion in this brave new world of “No Human Being is Illegal” and “Every Refugee Deserves to be Resettled.”               The university history professor with an office full of fake Indian jewelry and a view of the parking lot will lecture on the military […]

The Last Israelis by Noah Beck Reviewed by Ruth King

                There is an old saw “If you want to know what a man is thinking, listen to what he says.” Iran’s mullahs regularly issue crude genocidal threats to destroy Israel. Their words gain more credibility every day as their nuclear capabilities grow. Israel is their first target, but to their great strategic detriment, Israelis […]
