BDS is not a Civil Rights Movement

The BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) “movement” (a PA intelligence outfit) claims to be a civil rights movement but is this really so? BDS does not engage in any civil rights advocacy in Israel nor does it do so in Judea/Samaria and Gaza. BDS is explicitly unconcerned with the civil rights of Palestinians elsewhere inContinue reading “BDS is not a Civil Rights Movement”

The Palestinian Apartheid Strategy

Since the collapse of the Oslo process in the year 2000 has the Palestinian Authority (PA) practiced a strategy of biding for time while rejecting all proposals for ending the conflict, which Palestinians describe as “the conspiracy to liquidate the Palestinian issue”. The calculus is that time is on the side of the Palestinians. TheContinue reading “The Palestinian Apartheid Strategy”

The Palestinian Narrative is not Legitimate

It has often been claimed that peace requires accepting that there are two competing narratives, one Israeli and one Palestinian, but is this really true? What has not been considered is that the Palestinian narrative is Anti-Zionist, meaning opposed to peace with Israel. Therefore legitimizing the Palestinian narrative as an obstacle to peace makes peaceContinue reading “The Palestinian Narrative is not Legitimate”

Leftwing Anti-Semitism Must be Delegitimized

One key problem facing the Jewish world is the mainstreaming of leftwing Anti-Semitism. The IHRA definition of Anti-Semitism as widely endorsed by liberal democracies recognizes Anti-Zionism as constituting Anti-Semitism and some Western leaders have condemned BDS, there are however no national leaders outside of Israel speaking out against leftwing Anti-Semitism generally of which BDS ofContinue reading “Leftwing Anti-Semitism Must be Delegitimized”

Does the PA Want a Palestinian State?

The Palestinian Authority (PA) has continued the Palestinian nationalist tradition of rejecting all peace offers for partition since 1937. The question needs therefore be asked whether the PA is at all interested in establishing a Palestinian state other than one in the place of Israel as called for in the 1964 PLO Palestinian National Covenant?Continue reading “Does the PA Want a Palestinian State?”

Is Palestinian Nationalism Irrational?

Palestinian nationalism is thoroughly based on Anti-Zionism, the third stage of Anti-Jewish bigotry with the earlier stages being Anti-Judaism and Anti-Semitism (in the narrow sense). Palestinian nationalism systematically racializes Jews in terms of all three stages of Anti-Semitism in the broader sense. Palestinian nationalism is thus primarily a form of racism and is as suchContinue reading “Is Palestinian Nationalism Irrational?”

Zionists Need Embrace Critical Theory

There are three historical phases to Anti-Semitism in the broader sense of the term, these are Anti-Judaism (Roman, Christian and Muslim), Anti-Semitism (in the narrow racializing sense of the word) and Anti-Zionism, the most prominent form of Anti-Jewish prejudice today. Critical theory is an excellent tool for exposing the bigoted nature of Anti-Zionism as aContinue reading “Zionists Need Embrace Critical Theory”

Implement the IHRA Definition

“Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor.” Example from the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of Anti-Semitism Many governments (including the European Union) have formally affirmed and endorsed the IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) definition of Anti-Semitism. Yet mostContinue reading “Implement the IHRA Definition”

The Intention behind the Apartheid Libel

The PA (the Palestinian Authority) through Palestinian intelligence is running a global campaign to discredit Israel by means of the Anti-Semitic Apartheid libel which is premised on the Nazi idea that the multiracial Jewish nation with converts from all racial origins ostensibly is a “racial group”. This is the main purpose of the BDS (Boycott,Continue reading “The Intention behind the Apartheid Libel”

Israel is too Secretive

One common error in the intelligence world is exaggerated secrecy. There is much information in intelligence archives around the world that should be declassified and made available to historians, journalists and the general public just as the East German Stasi archives were made completely public. Informational compartmentalization also creates myopia in there being few peopleContinue reading “Israel is too Secretive”

The Strategic Road Grid of Judea and Samaria

Israel has historically deliberately made the impression that the restorative indigenous communities of Judea and Samaria were founded largely at random by religious and nationalist pioneers and independently of the defense establishment. This is not the case as those communities were all established on public lands and in strategic locations. The Israeli road network inContinue reading “The Strategic Road Grid of Judea and Samaria”

The Changing Israeli Equation in US Domestic Politics

Israel is losing support among Democratic voters, including among young assimilating Jews, a large minority of whom are who are turning Anti-Zionist. The Jewish electorate is progressively disappearing to assimilation and the only American Jews who will remain Jewish are Orthodox American Jews and American Jews in Israel. Israel is also losing much ground amongContinue reading “The Changing Israeli Equation in US Domestic Politics”

BDS is not What it Claims to Be

Proponents of BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) want to pressure the Jewish state out of existence. But what is the real purpose of the BDS movement as a product of international political action by Palestinian Authority intelligence? The PA knows perfectly well that it is not possible to pressure Israel into committing national suicide, inContinue reading “BDS is not What it Claims to Be”
