This is the third in our series revisiting our coverage of the 2014 Gaza conflict.

In the first post, we reported how the war did not start the way the anti-Israel propagandists content, with an Israeli attack in retaliation for the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens by a Hamas-affiliated cell...

It’s authored by Father Gabriel Naddaf, a Greek Orthodox priest from Nazareth in the Galilee.

The new guide garnered some publicity in Israel.

But here in the U.S., other...

For the second time in a few weeks, India has abstained at the United Nations instead of voting on an Israel-related resolution. On July 3, 2015 India abstained from weighing in on a UN Human Rights Council resolution condemning Israel for 2014 Gaza conflict. The anti-Israel resolution passed with 47 votes in favour, with...

Periodically throughout this summer, we are taking a look back at our coverage of the 2014 Gaza conflict.

It’s important to do this because a relentless propaganda campaign portrays the conflict as initiated and continued by Israel in retaliation for the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens by a Hamas-affiliated cell...

Obama Press Conf Iran Deal end July 15 2015

The Obama administration and its supporters try to paint opposition to the Iran nuke deal as a Bibi Netanyahu problem.

That’s a convenient excuse, because it allows Obama to play the Democrat loyalty card among members still upset about Bibi’s appearance in Congress. It also plays into “Israel Lobby” demonization,...

There is a reason many nations, including the United States and Israel, refused to join the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The fear was that ICC, created by the 1998 Rome Treaty, would go the way of entities like the UN Human Rights Council, and turn into a political operation directed at the...

President Obama defended his deal to Iran to Thomas Friedman of The New York Times yesterday. It was a bad deal and it represented a retreat on nearly every single element of the deal.

In any case this is what Obama told Friedman:

In recent posts we have discussed Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), a U.S. based organization that has established itself as the “Jewish wing” of the Palestinian solidarity movement.

President Barack Obama has, at least since 2012, claimed that he has Israel’s back regarding his engagement with Iran.

But as the Iran nuke negotiations move closer to an agreement, with reports it could happen by tomorrow, it is clear that Obama’s words are empty rhetoric.

The French language version of the article is titled Paris En Flammes. With my distant recollection of high school french, that translates as Paris in Flames.
