Jerusalem syndrome

Jerusalem syndrome Categories: Israel, Palestinians     Author: Amotz Asa-El

The Temple Mount, arguably monotheism's most active volcano, is smoking again. The hilltop where a universalistic King Solomon built, as he saw it, a shrine whose tenant would be God and whose pilgrims would be "all the people of the world," returned in October to its more familiar role as a source

After Obama

After Obama Categories: Iran, Israel, Middle East, United States     Author: Robert Satloff

Even God, it seems, is tired of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute - and the never-ending standoff between US President Barack Obama and Israeli PM Binyamin Netanyahu. When a third intifada threatened to erupt recently following Israel's temporary closure of Muslim prayer at the al-Aqsa Mosque in respo

Faction and Fiction in Iran negotiations

Faction and Fiction in Iran negotiations Categories: International Security, Iran     Author: Michael Rubin

In 1998, against the backdrop of Iranian President Mohammad Khatami's "Dialogue of Civilisations," there was great optimism about the potential for a thaw in US-Iranian relations among many of the same circles that express it now. And then, just as now, some in the US business community wanted to ru

Deal or No Deal?

Deal or No Deal? Categories: International Security, Iran     Author: Lenny Ben-David

November 24 is seen as a critical date in the negotiations between Iran and UN Security Council's permanent members (the "P5+1" the United States, France, Britain, Russia, China plus Germany) on the fates of Iran's nuclear enterprise and the economic sanctions imposed on the recalcitrant and bellico

Editorial: The Eleventh Hour Categories: International Security, Iran     Author: Colin Rubenstein

As this edition of the Australia/Israel Review went to press, negotiations between the P5+1 and Iran over Iran's nuclear program were continuing in Vienna ahead of a November 24 deadline, with little sign that a deal is imminent - certainly not one that would end the program altogether and dismantle

Statement: End the Incitement Categories: Israel, Media Releases, Palestinians, Terrorism    

AIJAC is deeply saddened and shocked by the massacre of four Jews who were worshipping at the Kehilat Bnei Torah Synagogue in West Jerusalem's Har Nof neighbourhood yesterday, as well as the death of an Israeli Druze policeman who was shot in the gunfight that ended the assault. It is hard to think

The Fictional basis of Carr’s Palestine pivot

The Fictional basis of Carr’s Palestine pivot Categories: Australasia, Updates     Author: Gabrielle Debinski and Ahron Shapiro

In a speech to the Australian Friends of Palestine Association, reproduced in part in the Australian, Bob Carr justifies his pivot on the Middle East by referring to "apartheid," one of many factual and wholly irrational errors in the claims he has made against Israel as part of his push for Austral

Al-Aqsa, incitement and the car intifada

Al-Aqsa, incitement and the car intifada Categories: Israel, Palestinians, Updates     Author: Jamie Hyams

Some say that Israel may be in the grip of a "third intifada". While the first was characterised by civil disobedience, rioting and rock-throwing, and the second by large scale terrorism, most notable suicide bombing, this one has so far featured attacks by drivers ramming their cars into pedestrian
