Why Opposing Zionism Is Not Anti-Semitic: The Christian Roots of Zionism

Why Opposing Zionism Is Not Anti-Semitic: The Christian Roots of Zionism

Naftali Bennett once stated in an interview with Mehdi Hassan that, according to the Bible, Palestine — or, as he calls it, Israel — belongs to the Jewish people. Palestine is referred to as “The Land of Israel” by some people and, in this interview from 2017, Bennett insists that if Hassan wants to claim…

The EU’s Shameless Complicity in Israel’s Crimes

The EU’s Shameless Complicity in Israel’s Crimes

Two months after Palestinians rose to defend al-Aqsa Mosque and contest the evictions in occupied East Jerusalem, the conflict barely registers on the world stage.

The Israeli Farce

The recently inaugurated Israeli government, the Coalition-for-Change, the wet dream of Israeli and American liberals, Biden-approved-and-blessed after fifteen years of Bibi Netanyahu’s tyranny and four rounds of elections in the last two years – barely surviving a vote of confidence in cliffhanger-fashion – 59:59. It came to power on a slim ‘majority’ of 59.5:60.5 in…

Jerusalem Conflict: Identity Theft on Top of Everything Else

Jerusalem Conflict: Identity Theft on Top of Everything Else

As many previous colleagues have discovered, writing about Israel is a thankless task best avoided, especially by a self-hating Jew. Before people even read a given article, they have made up their own minds about Israel and cross-checked their views against others they hold to see if they are ideologically sound, i.e., politically correct. Then…
