ZOA Op-ed: Obama Tactic on Israel – Lie then Retract

After weeks of murderous Palestinian stabbing attacks upon innocent Israelis, how has the Obama Administration responded?  Although Israel has been killing or apprehending knife-wielding terrorists, while Mahmoud Abbas’ Palestinian Authority (PA) has been inciting and glorifying their acts of murder, the Administration presents both sides as morally equivalent, while insinuating or even asserting Israeli responsibility.

ZOA Letter to Haaretz: About Free Speech on Campus

It’s the Israel bashers who quash free speech In response to “Pro-Palestinians accuse Israel advocates of muzzling dissent on U.S. campuses,” September 30.
