Double standards - Dead Kurds don't count Categories: Israel, Turkey, Updates     Author: Or Avi-Guy

Media and NGOs have always been quick to condemn Israel, yet are often silent about real and much more extensive human rights abuses in other countries.

Recommended reading on Israel’s social protest movement Categories: Israel, Updates     Author: Tzvi Fleischer

While Israel's Social Protest movement, which has dominated Israel headlines over the past few weeks, has been eclipsed for the moment by the major terrorist attack in southern Israel on Thursday and subsequent events, it is likely to remain a significant source of debate and political power in Isra

Greens attacked for their BDS blues Categories: Anti-Zionism, Australasia, Israel, Updates     Author: Allon Lee
