Deconstruction Zone: What Palestinians Really Want Categories: Palestinians     Author: David Pollock

The long-term Palestinian political perspective has long been a subject of much polemical speculation - but without much evidence on either side. Do most Palestinians hope for a small state of their own at peace with Israel, or do they still aspire to reclaim all of Palestine someday? 

Editorial: Containing the Damage Categories: International Security, Iran, United States     Author: Colin Rubenstein

By early September it was clear US President Barack Obama had secured the support of enough US Senators - 34, all of them from his own Democratic party - to guarantee that his promised veto of any Congressional rejection of the Iran nuclear deal - known as the JCPOA - would not be over-ridden.

Hay in needle-stacks: A Hero in Hebron

Hay in needle-stacks: A Hero in Hebron Categories: Israel, Palestinians, Updates     Author: Ari Wenig

Coming across something rare is often analogised as finding "a needle in a haystack". And yet, this simile reflects the Israeli-Palestinian divide far more aptly when reversed. Finding acts of pure humanity in and amongst this deeply polarised, and often manic conflict, tends to be like searching fo

Letter: Ill-conceived motion Categories: Australasia, Iran, Media Releases, Palestinians     Author: Colin Rubenstein

Wendy Turner writes in defence of the Queensland Labor conference motion to recognise a Palestinian state (Letters, 3/9). This motion is one-sided, ill-conceived and counter-productive. Motions such as this are detrimental to the cause of Middle East reconciliation...

What ISIS might do next Categories: Egypt, Iraq, Islamic Extremism, Middle East, Syria     Author: Yaakov Amidror

Over the past several months, ISIS, the militant jihadist Islamic State, has made significant gains. It controls a huge expanse stretching in Iraq from Ramadi west of Baghdad across the Syrian border to the archeologically rich Tadmur (Palmyra).

Asia Watch: Enemies real and imagined Categories: Asia, Islamic Extremism, Israel     Author: Michael Shannon

Indonesia's historic reputation for religious tolerance took a beating for several years as an unholy coalition of Islamist politicians and self-styled enforcers like the Islamic Defenders Front harassed and sometimes violently attacked minorities, including Christians and Shi'ites, Sufi and Ahmadiy

How to Get a Better Deal With Iran

How to Get a Better Deal With Iran Categories: International Security, Iran, United States     Author: Mark Dubowitz

The Iran nuclear deal is a ticking time bomb. Its key provisions sunset too quickly, and it grants Iran too much leverage to engage in nuclear blackmail. To defuse it, the US Congress needs to do what it has done dozens of times in the past including during the Cold War in requiring changes to key U
