    Destroying the Dimona nuclear reactor and causing a leak is a long-standing goal of anti-Israel groups.According to breaking reports, Hamas has fired several rockets towards the Dimona nuclear reactor.

According to official sources, the rockets actually fired today either missed or were shot down by Iron Dome. There...

    Israel-bashing figures prominently in 'teach-ins' where San Franciscans seek a flavor of the Vietnam era Let's admit it - San Francisco is gorgeous, and deserves its name as the capital of resistance to what the US is trying to do in the Middle East. After all, while other places from coast to coast had rallies and marches before and during Operation Iraqi Freedom, only there were thousands "hauled off by the pigs" for blocking the financial district, and only there was there a rally and march almost every Saturday for weeks and weeks until Saturday, April 19. But were all...

    The Egyptian military recently used American-made Apache helicopter gunships to fire rockets into houses in the Sinai Peninsula, the latest in a series of lethal raids targeting a little-known Al Qaeda-inspired group that has bombed civilians. The April 23 raid came on the same day that the State Department lifted a hold on military aid to Egypt.

    Wednesday, April 30, 2014 The Peace Process is the Process of Blaming Israel Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Big lies don't always start out big. They don't even always start out as lies. They only grow big in the cover-up when the truth has to be beaten off with a stick made out of even bigger lies. A brief read of the daily newspapers, a quick flick through the cable news networks and an ear cocked to the drive time news minute might give you the idea that Israel is isolated and besieged. Israel is indeed...

The fig leaf has fallen, and...

This is patently false when considering the facts. The picture of an Israeli tank facing a Palestinian rock thrower, painted by SJP and...
