We highlighted recently resolutions at the United Church of Christ’s 30th Synod in Cleveland seeking (1) divestment from certain named companies (such as Caterpillar), and (2) declaring Israeli guilty of the Crime of Apartheid as defined in the 1998 Rome Statute creating the International Criminal Court.

These take place through years-long efforts...

At least no one got hurt this time.

But Gaza Flotilla III was a complete flop.

Meant to break Israel’s perfectly legal naval blockade of Gaza (more on legality here), designed to stop Iranian shipments of weapons, the flotilla avoided the disaster of Gaza Flotilla I, in which 9 people were killed when...

First the good news, the so-called Schabas report, the United Nations Human Rights Council inquiry into last year’s war between Hamas and Israel, isn’t as bad as its predecessor, the infamous, discredited Goldstone report. But it’s still pretty bad.

The Schabas report is named for the judge who originally headed it, William...

The progressive United Church of Christ is no stranger to controversy when it comes to Israel.

UCC has had close ties (see pp. 44-46 of linked pdf.) to Friends of Sabeel – North America, the U.S. branch of Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center, a Jerusalem-based non-governmental organization that leads efforts to alienate Christians...

Israel has a military blockade on the Gaza strip due to Hamas control which has turned the 40-mile long strip of land into an Iranian rocket base. There are other radical groups there, such as Islamic Jihad and now ISIS-related groups, who also have rockets.

Iran could ship vastly larger and more...

Because I am a glutton for punishment, I read the anti-Zionist Mondoweiss website.

I do it, so you don’t have to.

One of the authors there posted this video put out by the Israeli Foreign Ministry, apparently one in a series, as if it were a bad thing.

Seems pretty much on target...

Hamas assembles and fires rocket from residential area NDTV

It’s too late to undo the massive propaganda campaign surrounding the 2014 Gaza conflict, which Israel called Operation Protective Edge.

False statistics about civilian casualties were put out by Hamas ministries and then adopted without question by the UN, “human rights” groups, and the media to create the narrative that “most” or...

On June 12, 2014, a terror cell affiliated with Hamas kidnapped Naftali Fraenkel (16), Gilad Shaer (16), and Eyal Yifrah (19) in the West Bank.

After an intensive hunt and crackdown on Hamas throughout the West Bank, they were found dead. The murderers months later were located and killed by Israeli forces.
