Where is your morality Lord Sacks?

Rabbi Jonathan Sacks has won respect for his analyses of religion and violence. But he has descended into ‘vulgar Israeli propaganda’ with scant respect for facts in his video attacking BDS.

We established a state on the mass graves of others

Palestinian medic tries to comfort a wounded boy at Shifa hospital in Gaza City, northern Gaza Strip,

This is a very angry statement by Israeli musician Jonathan Ofir, now living in Denmark. It’s not just the mass deaths of Palestinians which Zionists needed in order to create the Israeli state. It’s the lies Israelis tell themselves and others about their driving need for self-defence.

Jewish intellectual tradition cut short

A documentary on what American children learn at Jewish Day Schools reveals a shocking end to the tradition of critical thought from which Jewish intellectuals were created. In its place is indoctrination in love for ‘mother’ Israel and such a one-sided account of Israel that many of the ‘cogs’ in this production line are profoundly shocked when they discover that Israel is a super-power which has tried to get rid of all traces of the Palestinians who lived in the ‘land without people’.

Iran on verge of making nukes, USA must lead attack: Netanyahu in 1992

Since Israel decided over 20 years ago that Iran posed its great existential threat it has been sending out alarms about imminent danger. Christian Science Monitor provides a timeline of these alarms leading to today’s hue and cry. Sheera Frenkel reports from Israel’s defence HQ on the people who are feeding reporters with stories about Iran’s nuclear readiness. Only the Iranians know if these comprise a dodgy dossier.
