It’s getting tougher to be a Jew in Britain.

According to a report by the UK’s Community Security Trust, anti-Semitic incidents have skyrocketed in 2014, reaching the highest levels ever recorded.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center reports that British Jews are increasingly afraid to visit Jewish-owned stores.

A recent UK study finds that almost half...

As I have told you, the efforts of some left-wing academics to demonize Israel never ends.

While you go about your business and pay attention to world events, they work tirelessly to ostracize Israel while ignoring both Israel’s security situation and the decades-long effort to destroy Israel.

Groups like those who sponsor the Pinkwashing...

We have focused frequently on the lawfare strategy against Israel, advocated by people like Hastings College of Law Professor George Bisharat, which has been a primary focus of Palestinian political strategy ever since Israel put a halt to suicide bombings by building the security barrier.

Lawfare against Israel, however, is based on...

I witnessed first hand in law school in the early 1980s the concerted and planned effort by “Palestinians” to co-opt indigenous rights movements to the anti-Israeli cause.

The push was led by people like George Bisharat, now a law professor at UC-Hast...

One of my big regrets is not making more of a connection with Alan Dershowitz while in law school.

I didn’t take any of his classes, but I did have some interaction with him since he was the faculty advisor to the Jewish Law Students Association.  We called him “The Dersh.”

Palestinian national identity as it currently is recognized was a reaction to the creation of Israel and most prominently the 1967 war when Israel captured territory controlled by Egypt and Jordan.  Newt Gingrich is under fire for stating this truth.

Calling Israel an “Apartheid State” and the barrier built to keep out suicide bombers the “Apartheid Wall” is part of the standard lexicon of the Islamist-Lefist Anti-Israel Coalition.

In The New York Times today, Richard Goldstone calls the apartheid terminology a slander, Israel and the Apartheid Slander:

Why are the pre-1967 borders of Israel, which amount to the 1949 armistice lines, so sacrosanct?

Once you buy into the narrative of exclusive Palestinian victimization, once you take the Helen Thomas view which is widely accepted in many circles that Israel is an alien European implant, once you view the desire...

Barack Obama’s insistence that Israel cease all building in Jewish neighborhoods of East Jerusalem, calling such neighborhoods “settlements,” raises an interesting question. Who are the settlers in Jerusalem?

A good example of the lack of clarity over Palestinian claims to Jerusalem is found in prominent Palestinian-American spokesman George Bisharat.
