In the words of a magistrate, "She did the practice run on the mattress with the first family that hosted her and they felt intimidated enough to go to [AHN], saying, 'We're scared, we don't want her to continue living with us'." Out she went, facing homelessness. ...

The progressive West must stop fetishising Palestinian extremists by Stephen Daisley

stephen-daisley.png?auto=compress.enhance.format_xtr_crop=faces.entropy.edges_xt ... those who claim to stand in solidarity with Palestinians will continue to objectify, fetishise and patronise them. They have no interest in actual liberation; a Palestinian state would rob them of their little morality play in the desert. The Palestinians will go on being pin-ups and go on being stateless. ...

Killing free speech by Judith Bergman

3525.png The OIC's highly ambitious plans to remove all references of Islam from terrorist acts erode freedom of speech. Those plans go severely underreported in the West. Mainstream journalists do not appear to find it dangerous that their freedom of speech should be supervised by the OIC, while Western governments, far from offering any resistance, appear, perhaps for votes, to be cozily going along with everything. ...

One speaker in a debate on whether the Labour leader is ‘unfit to be prime minister’ by Howard Jacobson

Could there, I wonder, be such a thing as an inadvertent antisemite? Jeremy claims to be a peace-maker. A peace-maker brings warring parties together. Why then do we only ever see him taking Palestinians to tea? Could it be that he just can’t remember to ask the Israelis? “Oh, bugger, I’ve forgotten to invite the Jews again.” ...

Even pro-Palestinian activists are appalled by Jeremy Corbyn’s approach to Israel by James Sorene

Many organisations manage to be deeply critical of Israel even within the IHRA definition. Somehow even those organisations (eg HRW) are able to avoid the deeply offensive rhetoric which is ubiquitous within British Labour. The dark side of British Labour are now more or less aligned with those groups who believe violence is the only solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. They fetishize armed “resistance” and harming Israeli civilians, believe there should be no dialogue with Israelis and deploy the most offensive antisemitic and extreme language in order to inflame communal tensions. ...

Time for Palestinians to stop fighting lost battles by Daniel J. Arbess

If Israel has such bad PR, why does it remain so popular? by Andrew Silow-Carroll

Israel remains hugely popular among the American public. According to Gallup, 64 percent of the U.S. population sympathizes with the Israelis over the Palestinians, and only 19 percent say they sympathize more with the Palestinians. Congress remains firmly pro-Israel. Yes, a Pew survey in January showed a wide partisan divide over Israel, with 79 percent of Republicans and only 27 percent of Democratic sympathizing more with Israel than with the Palestinians. But the poll questions forced respondents to choose between Israelis and Palestinians (why not both?), and the results may have reflected only the deeply partisan nature of American politics — not anything you can hasbarah away. ...
