Through sacking Long-Bailey, Starmer has shown he is determined to tightly delimit criticism of Israel within Labour as the annexation issue unfolds. Like Johnson, Starmer will play his allotted role in this political game of charades – one long understood and tolerated by Israel and its UK...

Strangely, Israel's large Palestinian minority has found itself treated both as much-abused, second-class citizens and as an unwilling shop-window dummy on which Israel can hang its pretensions of fairness and equality.

The US and Israel don't just share brutal and racist policing methods. In a world of depleting resources and a contracting global economy, they are devising strategies to prevent resistance from a growing underclass.

Washington and Israel are trying to intimidate the Hague 'war crimes' court so it drops its plans for investigations. But it is critically important to probe the US as the most powerful offender, and Israel as the most persistent.

Israel has exploited the steady decline in the numbers of Palestinian Christians to advance its claim that they are being hounded from the region by Muslim extremists. But the real blame lies with Israel and the foreign Churches

An attack on a prominent British-Palestinian doctor and academic, Ghada Karmi, by a self-styled “antisemitism watchdog” looks suspiciously like a new trend in anti-Palestinian bigotry and bullying dressed up as victimhood.

Mike Pompeo will use his visit to sound out Benny Gantz more closely now he is inside the government and, if needs be, gently lean on him – on Netanyahu’s behalf – to ensure he doesn’t publicly waver on annexation from within the coalition.

In what many critics claim amounts to a power grab, Netanyahu began pushing through changes last week to Israel’s basic laws, the equivalent of a constitution. The move was described as “terrifying” by Elyakim Rubinstein, a conservative former supreme court judge.

Palestinian workers’ dependence on Israel is now placing them in harm’s way. Although many are likely to catch the coronavirus in Israel while working, Israel is refusing to take responsibility for their welfare.

Labour leader Keir Starmer is desperate to put the antisemitism episode behind him and the party. Recent history is his warning. He knows that any effort to defend Corbyn’s record will simply revive the campaign of smears. And this time, he will be the target.

What is already a health crisis in Gaza barely needs a nudge from the coronavirus to be tipped into a health disaster. And make no mistake: the blame will land squarely at Israel's door.

The judge who laid down the legal architecture needed to establish Israel’s settlements has just died. But his legacy has inspired a fresh generation of jurists to create new mechanisms for dispossessing the Palestinians.

Renewed efforts by Israel to turn tens of thousands of Bedouin into refugees in their own country – some for the second or third time – is proof that in a Jewish state some Israelis are simply the wrong kind of citizen.

Jonathan Cook - 2019-10-13 - Original post - cached version

Israel has ignored warnings by the United Nations that Gaza is about to become uninhabitable, acting as if Palestinians there can be caged, starved and abused indefinitely. Now crises are unfolding on all fronts – social, economic, political and humanitarian – and Israel is running out of time...

Israel's Palestinian citizens brought the country’s busiest highway to a crawl as they drove in a slow convoy towards Jerusalem to protest police inaction over a tide of violence that has swept their communities. More than 70 lives have been claimed so far this year.

It would be a grave mistake to assume that the continuing political deadlock in Israel is evidence of a deep ideological divide. There is nothing divided about Israel. In this month’s general election, 90 per cent of Israeli Jews voted for parties that identify as being either on the...

New film The Voice of Ahmad documents an extraordinary story from Israel's early years – and erased from its official history – when the kibbutz movement adopted small numbers of Palestinian teens at the same time as stealing the village lands of their new recruits.

The strangest thing about the coverage of the deadlock between the Israeli right and the “center-left” is that none of the parties view it that way. According to their own assessments, only a tiny fraction of the new parliament consider themselves to be on the so-called center-left.

As the Joint List endorses former general Benny Gantz for prime minister over Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel's Palestinian citizens have found themselves once again characterised as a threat to the country’s supposed 'Jewish and democratic' politics.

Jonathan Cook - 2019-09-18 - Original post - cached version

Netanyahu's failure to secure a majority for his far-right coalition in the election was all the more glaring, given that he conducted by far the ugliest – and most reckless – campaign in Israeli history, including a bid to bypass his military chiefs to wage war on Gaza to postpone the vote.

Every Israeli prime minister understands that a military entanglement with Hezbollah, Lebanon’s armed Shia movement, is a dangerous wager, especially during an election campaign. So why is Benjamin Netanyahu risking a dangerous clash on Israel's northern border?

The real fight in Israel's imminent election re-run isn't between the right wing and a so-called 'centre-left' but between two rival camps within the ultra-nationalist right. The outcome may prove a moment of truth for the shrinking secular right as it comes up once again against an ever-more...

Western states have not only turned a blind eye to Israel's outrages, but are actively assisting in silencing anyone who dares to speak out, leaving Israel to luxuriate in its impunity. This was starkly illustrated when hundreds of heavily armed Israeli soldiers, many of them masked, raided a...

Israeli police forced out the Siyam family from their home in occupied East Jerusalem last week, the final chapter in their 25-year legal battle against a powerful settler organisation. The family’s defeat represented much more than just another eviction. It was intended to land a crushing blow...

With last night's Panorama programme on a supposed 'institutional anti-semitism' in Labour under Jeremy Corbyn's leadership, the BBC demonstrated that it has become a media attack dog in the hands of the ruling Conservative party

Human rights groups have warned that the ban entry to Afula's public park for Palestinian citizens marks a growing trend by local authorities representing the Jewish majority towards explicit separation of public space in ways reminiscent of apartheid South Africa.

The arrival of Nigerian televangelist T B Joshua to Nazareth represents a growing trend of foreign Christians, driven by apocalyptic readings of the Bible, interfering ever more explicitly in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories – and in ways that directly aid the policies of Israel’s...

As with previous peace plans, Donald Trump's 'deal of the century' makes impossible demands of the Palestinians. The aim once again is to force the Palestinians to reject it – and provide Israel with a pretext to seize more of their homeland

In recent weeks, a political “resistance” movement has emerged in Israel against Netanyahu, echoing the one against Donald Trump in the US. With Gantz as its figurehead, it has mobilised over the threat Netanyahu poses to Israel’s system of checks and balances. The chief concern has been the far...

Israel is close to building a $55 million cable car through occupied East Jerusalem, despite opposition from archaeologists, architects, Palestinians, and a tiny community of Jews. Critics say the project is intended to hide the local Palestinian population from some 3 million tourists who visit...

The Israeli newspaper Israel Hayom, which is widely seen as a mouthpiece for Benjamin Netanyahu, has leaked a document purporting to be Trump's 'deal of the century' peace plan. If genuine, it offers a catastrophic vision of the future for the Palestinians.

With Israel and the Palestinian Authority at an impasse over tax transfers, the PA is facing imminent collapse. So, more in desperation than with any realistic prospect of achieving peace, attention is turning to Trump’s long-promised “deal of the century”. Reports suggest it is due for release...

If the debate about the pro-Israel lobby in the US is for the first time making a nod to truth, the conversation about the pro-Israel lobby in the UK is becoming more and more divorced from reality. Part of the reason is the way the Israel lobby has recently emerged in the UK – hurriedly, and in...

With the election in the bag, Benjamin Netanyahu's only problem is that he faces imminent indictment for corruption. But he has a plan: extract an 'immunity from prosecution' law from his far-right coalition partners in return for annexing much of the West Bank

Benjamin Netanyahu now enjoys the luxury of choosing between a narrow government of far-right parties, and a right-wing national unity government embracing his rival Benny Gantz. Either way, this election demonstrates that opposition to Netanyahu and the right has been well and truly crushed.

Whether Netanyahu or Gantz wins Israel's election this week, more legislation will be drafted to advance institutional discrimination against the country's Palestinian minority, and the abusive treatment of Palestinians in the occupied territories will intensify.

Armed with Donald Trump's blessing after he moved the US embassy to Jerusalem nearly a year ago, experts say Israel is now working more quickly, more confidently and more intensively to expel Palestinians from the city of their birth.

US recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights will prove a boon for Israel's right, which has been clamouring to annex vast areas of the West Bank and thereby drive a final nail into the coffin of the two-state solution.

The Israeli military made an unexpected admission last week. It warned a parliamentary committee that Jews are for the first time outnumbered by the Palestinians living under Israeli rule, both those inside Israel and in the occupied territories. Israeli officials’ ultimate fear is that the...

How would you describe a white town in the United States that froze the tender for plots of land in a new neighbourhood because it risked allowing blacks to move in? As racist? And yet, replace the word “white” with “Jewish” and this describes what has just happened in Kfar Vradim, a small town...

More than a decade ago, US President Jimmy Carter warned that Israel was practising apartheid in the occupied Palestinian territories. But in truth, it would be more accurate to say Israel itself is an apartheid state.

US officials have warned the Palestinian leadership that a final peace deal will be settled over their heads if necessary. This time the US plan is not up for negotiation; it is primed for implementation. What Donald Trump needs now is someone like Mike Pompeo to bulldoze the Palestinians into...

After seven years of delays, Israel's governing parties agreed the final terms of controversial new legislation that would define Israel exclusively as "the nation-state of the Jewish people". It effectively blocks any chance for Israel's large Palestinian minority - one in five of the...

In the early 2000s, at the dawn of the social media revolution, Israelis used to dismiss filmed evidence of brutality by their soldiers as fakery. It was what they called “Pallywood” – a conflation of Palestinian and Hollywood. In truth, however, it was the Israeli military, not the Palestinians...

For the first time in living memory, Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre slammed shut its doors to worshippers and tourists. But the protest was only tangentially concerned with the fate of Palestinian Christians. It was really about protecting the churches' profits from real-estate and...
