Asia Watch: Close encounters Categories: Asia, Israel     Author: Michael Shannon

The moment came and went in seconds. Yet, the chance encounter between Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and his Israeli counterpart Binyamin Netanyahu in a corridor at the United Nations building in New York generated a torrent of chatter. Najib explained that he had bumped into Netanyahu at a

Essay: Grandstanding Against Peace Categories: Anti-Zionism, Antisemitism     Author: Glen Falkenstein

There was something missing from the Asian Cup this year when it kicked off in Australia. Not only was there the absurdity that an Israeli team was not present, despite being in geographically the same area as the Palestinian territories - which did send a team to the competition - but any mention o

The context of the recent violence in Israel is that there has been a frightening loss of control by the Palestinian Authority (PA) and its security organs over the refugee camps of the West Bank. In the refugee camps, new gangs have emerged who do not feel any respect towards Mahmoud Abbas and his

On Sept. 21, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with Russia's President Vladimir Putin, a meeting that focused on staying out of each other's way in Syria.

The Last Word: A Date to Remember

The Last Word: A Date to Remember Categories: Australasia, Interfaith Dialogue     Author: Jeremy Jones

October 28, 1965 is a date which should be respected and honoured.

Eitam and Naama Henkin were driving in the West Bank northeast of Tel-Aviv when bullets sprayed from a passing car took the couple's lives and orphaned their four boys, ages nine years to eight months, who witnessed their parents' murders from the car's back seat. The five assailants were quickly a

Deconstruction Zone: Deafening Silence Categories: Israel, Palestinians     Author: David Harris

For days now, I have been watching in dismay as Israeli citizens face random attacks, some deadly, by Palestinian assailants on the streets of their cities and towns. Children have been orphaned, parents have lost children, and some survivors are doubtless scarred for life. I have been waiting to s

Editorial: Deadly Myth Categories: Israel, Palestinians     Author: Colin Rubenstein

When Ahmed Mansara, a Palestinian teen, was rushed to hospital last week Palestinian sources claimed the 13-year-old had been ‘executed' by Israel. Ahmed, however, was not executed. He is alive and treated in an Israeli hospital after he was hit by a car after carrying out a stabbing attack wi

On October 14, reporter Chaim Levenson from the left-leaning Israeli paper Ha'aretz - perhaps hoping to sow dissension in Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's razor-thin 61-seat coalition - wrote an article chiding Netanyahu for misleading right-wing coalition partners by "bragging" that the

PA's decision to shun Israel has had bloody outcome Categories: Israel, Op-eds, Palestinians     Author: Colin Rubenstein

What should be done about the deadlock in Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations since Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' decision to walk away from the talks last year, preferring instead to sign a unity deal with the terrorist group Hamas?  Should the parties go back to discussin
