We have carried many stories over the years about anti-Israel activists in Europe and the U.S. using the heckler’s veto to shut down speeches and events.

A recent example was at the University of Texas at Austin, when members of the Palestine Solidarity Committee disrupted an Israel Studies event, then claimed their...

Anti-Israel bias in The New York Times isn’t news. But an article this week once again highlights how the Times promotes those who criticize or demonize Israel pretty uncritically, Israeli Veterans’ Criticism of West Bank Occupation Incites Furor.

Drawing on the stories of the annunciation of the birth of Jesus, Christmas is viewed as a time of peace and goodwill to all.

But for anti-Israel activists and organizations, the holiday season is a perfect occasion to conduct political warfare against the Jewish state.

In two recent posts (see here and here) we reported on the December 20 assassination of Lebanese Druze terrorist Samir Kuntar in Jaramana, a suburb of Damascus.

As we highlighted, Kuntar received three life sentences for his role in a 1979 terrorist attack which brutally devastated an entire Israeli family.

The Boycott, Divest & Sanction (“BDS”) movement and the broader campaign to delegitimize Israel has had a tough few weeks.  In academia and industry, the boycott campaign has been exposed as potentially discriminatory and unlawful, and yet another panel of experts has affirmed that Israel’s use of force against Hamas is...

Galway, Ireland. They stood huddled in the corner of the lecture theatre whispering ominously. A final pep talk perhaps, or a hasty revision of tactics.

Then the leader surged forward, arms flailing, voice bellowing, clad in the colours of Palestine. ‘Get the f–k off our campus, now, you f–king Zionist, f–king prick,’...

Could cameras at immigration centers in airports and at the borders pick extremists out of the crowd?  Could software search social media to identify terrorists or for hints of upcoming attacks?

With terror organizations and terrorists using social media for recruitment and indoctrination it is worth revisiting such programs.

Iran and its allies have taken a beating in Syria according to recent reports.

Perhaps the most spectacular was the airstrike overnight that killed the notorious child killer, Samir Kuntar and eight other terrorists in a Damascus suburb. Prof. Jacobson rightly called Kuntar “among the most notorious and vicious terrorists,” for shooting...

More than 15 months have passed since the end of the conflict in Gaza between Israel and the terrorist outfit Hamas, but the campaign of slander against Israel and witch-hunt against the members of its armed forces still continues. Last week British authorities briefly detained a retired IDF reserves officer, apparently based on a list...

You may recall that in mid-September we reported on an effort by the left-wing Israeli “human rights” group B’Tselem to game the voting for the Dutch Human Rights Tulip Award.

The Tulip Award carried a 100,000 Euro bounty. Despite already having a massive budget, much of which is from European sources, B’Tselem...

President Obama’s willful blindness toward Iran’s continued development of illicit weaponry is putting Americans and our allies in ever greater danger.  Obama’s superficial detente with Iran ignores its deceits, dissimulations, and resolve to obtain a nuclear capability.

In the latest instance, Obama is downplaying Iran’s November ballistic missile testU.N. Security Council...

After enduring decades of condemnation for “illegal” settlements in the West Bank, Israel is preparing a formal legal defense for general distribution.

The forthcoming report is being produced under the auspices of Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely and is expected to build upon a 2012 report by the Levy Commission that concluded...

This is one of those things that just leave you shaking your head.

And it’s an important lesson of why Israel can’t lose any war — there would be no mercy shown on the Jews.

I have warned you for years about the malicious nature of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. There is nothing funny about these people, even if they sometimes act like clowns.

And the worst of the worst, we’ve also documented, are leftist Jews. Whether it’s Jewish Voice for Peace, offshoot groups...
