Anti-Israel Voices at AIPAC’s Conference

The low point of the AIPAC policy conference came when Nancy Pelosi read a letter from J Street.

At a recent conference at the United Nations on strategies to defeat the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement, J Street—a Jewish, progressive advocacy group that claims to reject BDS—sent some of its constituents to stir up controversy.

Boston Globe: Settlements Don’t Impede Peace

The world’s restless fixation with where Jews live has flared up again. On Monday evening, Israel’s parliament passed a law authorizing the government to legalize thousands of homes built in the West Bank, in many cases on land against which there are claims of prior ownership.

Leading Canadian Paper: “Settlements” are Legal

Canada’s current position on Israeli “settlements” is that they are illegal because they violate Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, specifically Paragraph 6 which states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” The time has come for Canada to change our position to […]

Jpost Leibler’s Article Criticizing ADL Greenblatt’s Mideast Policies and More

Jonathan Greenblatt’s response (click here for link) to my criticism of his embrace of J Street, alleging that I distorted his message, is disingenuous and reaffirms my assessment. (click here for link) Invoking clichés “that there are steps Israel can take to ensure the viability of a two-state solution” are ill-becoming the head of a major […]
