When Northeastern University SJP marches to the chant of “Long Live the Intifada,” they are celebrating the bloody...

WAJ intro:  We featured Hen Mazzig previously, Israeli soldier shocked to see ugly side of U.S. campus life.  I have also followed his work helping to defeat anti-Israel BDS resolutions on campus.

When I saw an extensive write up of his time in the U.S. at The Mike Report, I asked if we...

I don’t know much about Indian politics, so I haven’t written about the election sweep which threw out the long-dominant Congress Party.

I do know that successive Indian governments have had at times contradictory relations with with Israel; not as crazed anti-Israel as many, but not solidly on Israel’s side either.

Judith Butler is an intellectual leader of the anti-Israel academic boycott movement.

Butler relentlessly seeks to delegitimize Zionism and Israel in the most crude terms, wrapped in an intellectual blanket.

Politico reports:

The Obama administration is using a time-tested pitch to get Congress to back military strikes in Syria: It will help protect Israel.

Right. The reason the administration is so intent on lobbing a few cruise missiles at Syria is to protect Israel. Secretary of State Kerry said:

Earlier this summer the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) and Jewish Voices for Peace (JVP) held a BDS camp. The BDS (Boycotts, Divestments and Sanctions) movement, which we have covered extensively, targets Israel.

These groups claim only to seek an end to the “occupation” of East Jerusalem and the West...

1) The Union Strikes Back

The European Union (EU) has just released new regulations governing certain dealings with Israel.

Starting in 2014, the EU (as a unit, individual states are not governed by these guidelines) will prohibit any dealings with private Israeli entities that liver or operate in Judea and Samaria, what is...

I am and always have been a liberal. I was raised to revere the Democratic party and feel contempt for the party of Richard Nixon (as well as the man himself). Democrats, everyone agreed, were freer spirits.  Uptight Republicans, everyone agreed, lighted cigars with hundred-dollar bills they’d stolen from poor people.

All the attention this week was focused on the removal of “God” and reference to Jerusalem as Israel’s capital from the DNC platform.  Those terms were reinserted based on the rused that two-thirds of delegates approved, when it was clear that there was not the-thirds support on the voice vote.

There is one worthwhile clause in an otherwise worthless article at The Atlantic by Steve Clemons, Obama Tells Palestinians to Stay in the Back of the Bus.

Clemons lays out the fiction that the Palestinian strategic move to take land without peace is something Gandhi-like:

Susan Rice’s Illegitimate U.N. Folly

To call the performance of the Obama administration at the UN, through Ambassador Susan Rice, “folly” would be far, far too kind.

Mahmoud Abbas, despite repeated U.S. requests, insisted on pressing for a U.N. Security Council resolution declaring Israeli settlement construction “illegal.”  The U.S. vetoed the resolution.

Standing in isolation, all was good.

But the fact is that the...
