Why It's Correct to Label the Obama Administration Anti-Israel

If this president’s frosty relationship with Israel’s elected government, disregard of its interests with regard to Iran, public excoriation over building plans in its capital Jerusalem, condemnation of its defense in the Gaza war (which inevitably harmed civilians used as terrorist shields) and high-pressure tactics in the moribund “peace process” were not enough to convince you that this administration is the most anti-Israel in history, consider its actions this week.

CAMERA Conference Highlights Efforts to Turn Evangelicals from Supporting Israel

Immanuel Paul looked somewhat out of place in a leather jacket and priest’s collar, seated by himself in a Hollywood ballroom where a conference put on by a watchdog of anti-Israel media bias was in full swing. The daylong conference in Los Angeles, hosted Jan. 18 by the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA), aimed to unmask efforts to turn evangelical Christians away from supporting Israel.

ISIS Destroys Oldest Iraqi Monastery

BDS Prof Misunderstands Israel

One day before an academic boycott resolution was soundly defeated at the Business Meeting taking place at the American Historical Association’s Annual Meeting (111 to 51) , and days after the Spanish government completely rejected the notion of excluding Israeli universities and awarded Israeli Ariel University 100,000 euros (over $100,000) in compensation for having been “illegally excluded” from a competition, The Los Angeles Times places itself on the wrong side of history. With the publication Friday of an Op-Ed by Saree Makdisi calling for academic boycott of Israel, the paper demonstrates, once again, a total loss of moral clarity (“Why Israel’s schools merit a U.S. boycott,” Jan. 8).

PBS at War With Netanyahu?

One thing that can be said about the PBS Frontline documentary Netanyahu at War is that despite many serious shortcomings, there are some positive aspects that make it not as bad as previous PBS and Frontline documentaries on Israel. If it's not obvious, that's somewhat faint praise. The fundamental problem with Netanyahu at War is that a war by definition requires at least two participants, and focusing only on Netanyahu, but not also on those who were making war against Israel, makes it impossible to really understand why Netanyahu and Israel took the actions that they did.
