Danny Danon, Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, has written a poignant analysis of the failed US-sponsored resolution to condemn Hamas.

Iran Disses America Israel Again *Yawn*

Two American hostages during 1979 Iran Hostage Crisis

Iran celebrated on Sunday the 39th anniversary of its takeover of the U.S. embassy. This was a terrible thing that happened in 1979, during which 52 Americans were taken hostage and held for 444 days. It was the perfect day for America to restore the sanctions against Iran that had been lifted since the implementation …

Canada to UNRWA’s Rescue

UNRWA school, Jerusalem

After the U.S. decided to cut UNRWA funding by $300 million, Canada stepped up its funding to the agency to the tune of $50 million (probably Canadian dollars). This is a shame as the US and Israel have been attempting to persuade European leaders to cut funding until such time as the agency becomes accountable …

Kerry put all this and …

UNRWA was created to perpetuate the refugee status of Arabs who left Israel in 1948. Which makes no sense if you think about it, because if you leave a place of your own volition, which is what they did, you’re not a refugee. Otherwise, imagine all the American tourists visiting Paris, for instance, suddenly designated …
