    As radical leftist NGOs continue to garner attention for their politicized impact on public discourse, Jerusalem-based research institute NGO Monitor this week released a database revealing just where they get their massive funds from. [...] A staggering total of over 261 million shekels ($66 million) was received by the 27 NGOs in the course of the two years, and of that amount 65% - consisting of nearly 170 million shekels - came from foreign governments. Another 34%, nearly 89 million shekels, was raked in from private donors and foundations, while the last 1%, over two-and-a-half million shekels, came from unclear...

    This is Part One of a two-part series. A new curriculum for Reform Hebrew schools in the United States, already being used by more than 10 such schools, is threatening to alienate young Jews further from Israel than they already are. Produced by Reform Rabbi Laurie Zimmerman, the new Kindergarten-12th grade course of study is entitled "Reframing Israel." Assuming that the default approach to Israel among Jews is positive and sympathetic, the title does not bode well for supporters of Israel. And in fact, the stated goal of the new curriculum is “teaching Jewish kids to think critically about the...

    China supports the creation of a Palestinian state along the 1967 borders, Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Thursday during an Arab League convention in Cairo. The Palestinian issue "should not be marginalized," Xi said, according to Xinhua, China's official news agency. "We are in favor of putting in place a new mechanism to promote peace as to the Middle East question, and support efforts made by the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation toward this end," said the leader of the world's most populous country and its second-largest economy. Xi declared that that Beijing "firmly supports the...

    A group of 71 British physicians have begun to exert pressure on the World Medical Association (WMA) to revoke the membership of the Israel Medical Association (IMA), it was revealed in a Knesset meeting on Wednesday. IMA representative Dr. Ze'ev Feldman announced the disturbing new step during a Knesset Science and Technology Committee meeting on the subject of boycotts against Israeli academic institutions. "The sword of the boycott has been raised against the scientific medical community in Israel," he declared, warning that Israel’s medical doctors are "in grave danger."

    Over the past several weeks, we have learned that the Obama administration believes it is at war with Israel. The war is not a shooting war, but a political war. Its goal is to bring the government to its knees to the point where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu loses power or begs Obama and his advisers to shepherd Israel through a “peace process” in which Israel will renounce its rights to Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. One component of this war is espionage. Last monthThe Wall Street Journal reported that Israel is a top target for American espionage. The other component...

    Kuwait hates Jews so much that its national airline has ditched a popular and lucrative New York-to-London flight rather than allow Israelis on its planes, authorities said Thursday. Kuwait Airways killed the flight to spite American officials, who threatened to pull the airline's permit to fly to the United States if they continued discriminating against Israeli passengers. The airline says they cannot allow Israelis on the planes because the Middle Eastern kingdom prohibits it citizens from doing business with citizens of the Jewish state.

Not a single mention was made of the Palestinian attacks, which have left 22 Israelis dead and hundreds wounded, nor did any other countries - even serial human rights violators such as Saudi Arabia, Iran, Russia and others - receive any of the General Assembly's attention. More disturbingly still, five of the the UNGA resolutions were sponsored by the...

Netanyahus assertion on Tuesday before the World Zionist Congress that the founder of the Palestinian people, Haj Amin al-Husseini, convinced Adolf Hitler to eradicate rather than expel the Jews of Europe was an overstatement of Husseinis role. No, the Holocaust was not Husseinis idea. But he was a partner in perpetrating and promoting it. He also made it inevitable. As I detailed in my book The Israeli Solution: A One-State Plan for Peace in the Middle East, during the course of Husseinis meeting with Hitler in Berlin in November 1941, Hitler...

You don't come out and say that, of course, but if you start appointing in strategic roles the sorts of people who espouse that particular insanity that expresses itself as an irrational hatred of Israel, you'll get the ball rolling. Because what that does is it shows all those countries that have institutionalized the hatred of Israel into law and policy that the US is no longer going to...

They argue that what Israel needs to do is begin capitulating even before the negotiations commence, let alone, conclude. They want Israel to give up its bargaining chips for nothing in return.

    The Nazification of Israelis -- and by extension, Jews -- is both breathtaking in its moral inversion and cruel in the way it makes the actual victims of the Third Reichs horrors a modern-day reincarnation of that same barbarity. It is, in the words of Boston Universitys Richard Landes, moral sadism, a salient example of Holocaust inversion that is at once ahistorical, disingenuous, and grotesque in its moral and factual inaccuracy. In reflecting on the current trend, he perceived in the burgeoning of anti-Israelism around the world, Canadian Member of Parliament Irwin Cotler once observed that conventional strains of anti-Semitism...

Besides, I understood that hes too busy traveling to Sheldon Adelsons events in Las Vegas, she added, referring to the major Jewish philanthropist who also owns Israeli daily Israel Hayom. Haaretz reported that Rice was referring to Dermers...

    Israel is the country most hated by Turkish citizens, a Pew Research Center poll released last week found. Responders were asked whether they have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of a selection of states (US, China, Brazil, Russia, Iran, Israel) and entities (such as the European Union and Nation). Israel was found the most disliked country of the offered options, with 86 percent of responders saying they have an unfavorable opinion of Israel and only 2 percent seeing Israel in a positive light...

    Anti-Israel activists exploit Ferguson tension as part of propaganda war.While no one knows if there will even be an indictment of Officer Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown, leaked evidence including an autopsy report raise the possibility there will be no indictment. If that happens, the streets will be on edge, and it will not take much of a spark to set the city on fire worse than ever before. As much tension as there is, an underreported story is the active role of pro-Palestinian activists who have exploited the Ferguson riots and tension this summer and fall...

    Israel Matzav ^ | 10/24/14 | Carl in Jerusalem
    This New York Post piece by Eliyahu Federman is spot-on (Hat Tip: Victor Shikhman). Abbas called Jews visiting the Temple Mount (Judaisms holiest place) a herd of cattle, with no right to visit or worship there. Jewish visits, he said, were a desecration that must be stopped by any means. Any means turned out to include the murder of baby Chaya. Whats most remarkable is the US silence on Abbas remarks. Neither Secretary of State John Kerry nor any State Department spokesman condemned Abbas words comparing Jews to cattle. Even the US embassy in Israel failed to issue a...

    The Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), the terror organization behind the Palestinian Authority (PA), called for a comprehensive strategy against Islamic extremism on Saturday - by blaming Israel for rising radicalization a la' the remarks of US Secretary of State John Kerry. Kerry insisted on Friday that the failure of peace talks between Israel and the PA - not Western apathy to Islamism nor the US's failures to resolve tensions in Iraq - was the culprit for the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS) group, sparking outrage from Israeli officials. "There wasn't a leader I met... who didn't raise with me...

    As the days trickle down to a precious few before Election Day, I have become increasingly depressed by the comments I've read on several conservative forums. There are way too many conservatives expressing dissatisfaction with the GOP candidates running next month and in the possible lineup in 2016. They say before they vote for a RINO, they'd rather stay home. There was a time when I would have admired their principled position but not this year. It is vitally important that the Republicans take over the Senate because the sad fact is that President Obama would never have been able...

    Bill Clinton was caught off mike in Iowa this weekend agreeing that the [Israeli] prime minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] was not the man to make peace with Palestinians a position at odds with his wifes pro-Israel stance, a new report said Monday. Clintons spontaneous comments came during an impromptu conversation with pro-Palestinian activists after he and Hillary spent the day at a political event in Iowa on Sunday. This is part of a pattern for Bill Clinton blaming the Israeli prime minister for the lack of progress toward peace with the Palestinians. What do we learn from this? 1....

    Jerusalem calls the move 'an unfortunate surrender to economic interests. First Fox Sports Middle East wiped Israel off the map, then following complaints it got rid of the map altogether. The sports network broadcasts in Israel, and a weekly schedule can be found online, especially important for American football fans interested in knowing what games will be broadcast on any given Sunday. Up until Thursday morning, the website had a select your country button that accessed a drop-down list of 23 countries in the Middle East, from Algeria, through KSA (the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), all the...

    The ceasefire agreement didn’t give Hamas everything it wanted, but it gave Israel nothing at all.Israel’s insistence on demilitarizing Gaza fell by the wayside.Why? Here’s one answer. Nabil Shaath, a senior PLO official and confidante of PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas, said that Israel dropped the demand that Hamas be demilitarized, due to American pressure, in an interview with the Arabic Ma’an News Agency. As usual the war was won on the battlefield and lost at the negotiating table. Which means it will have to be repeated in a year or two with a stronger Hamas.Without demilitarizing Gaza, the entire...

    In 1948, the argument for the creation of Israel was a moral argument; the argument against the creation of Israel was based on an assessment of Americas national interest. Almost seventy years later Israel is an economic and military powerhouse, with a rapidly growing population, while her traditional enemies are weaker than ever. At the present time, most of those who argue against the continued existence of Israel attempt to base their arguments on moral grounds. Still, a small and noisy group of conservatives contend that our support for Israel undermines our standing in the region, and threatens our national...

    Eleven lawmakers backed by liberal advocacy group J Street either voted against or refused to vote in favor of increased funding for Israels Iron Dome missile defense system, which has been a critical life-saver during Hamass latest assault on the Jewish state. Congress overwhelmingly approved an emergency increase in funding for Iron Dome this month by a vote of 395 to 8. Three of the eight who voted against the funding increase are J Street-backed lawmakers. Another eight abstained from the pro-Israel vote and also are financially supported by the group. J Streets political action committee (PAC) has already donated...
