Profiting from loss: how business in illegal Israeli settlements continues unchecked  10h40 18 février
The UN’s timing in publishing its list of 112 companies operating in the settlements could not be more tragic. It looks like the last gasp of those who - through their negligence over nearly three decades - have enabled the two-state solution to wither to nothing.
Israel’s peace camp’ flirts with oblivion  00h48 08 février
For Israel’s so-called peace camp, the past 12 months of general elections - a third ballot is due on 2 March - have felt more like a prolonged game of Russian roulette, with ever-diminishing odds of survival.
Israel’s Palestinian minority has good reason to fear Trump’s plan  11h13 07 février

The Trump plan is just a cover for Israel’s final land grab  15h50 04 février
Trump’s Vision for Peace is needed only because Oslo has outlived its usefulness. It radically overhauls the Oslo formula: instead of a supposed sharing of obligations - land in return for peace - those obligations are now imposed exclusively on the Palestinian side.
Trump’s deal of the century’ won’t bring peace - that was the plan  21h16 29 janvier
The White House has discarded the traditional US pose as an honest broker between Israel and the Palestinians. This was a deal designed in Tel Aviv more than in Washington - and its point was to ensure there would be no Palestinian partner.
The Israeli right has reason to believe the stars are finally aligned for annexation  19h30 19 janvier
Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu needs all the help he can muster before voters head to the ballot box on March 2 - for the third time in a year. Once again, it seems as though US President Donald Trump intends to ride to his rescue.
Antisemitism has been used to smear the left, while the right targets Jews  02h29 07 janvier
This was the year that the antisemitism smear against the left proved the political weapon of choice. Centrists let the genie out of the bottle, but the populist right will ultimately benefit by stoking further hatred of minorities, including Jews.
Bit by bit Israel aims to squeeze out the Palestinian Christians  02h14 07 janvier
Israel’s decision to trap Christians in Gaza this Christmas is only a prelude to a larger, seemingly contradictory longer-term plan. The choking blockade is designed to sap the people of the will to stay and struggle for what is theirs.

Hebron plan is Israel’s reminder to Palestinians that settler-power knows no limits  13h29 10 décembre
With its plan for a new Hebron settlement, Israel has reminded Palestinians that there are no limits - military, legal, moral or diplomatic - to the settlers’ power. Israel will annex land where it chooses and deceptively refashion the resulting apartheid system as the rule of law.
Antisemitism claims have one goal: To stop Jeremy Corbyn winning power  22h52 26 novembre
Surveys suggesting that British Jews are frightened on a Labour election victory should not be surprising. The media have ensured we have been living in a nationwide anti-Corbyn echo-chamber for the best part of four years.
With a corruption trial looming and no mandate to govern, Netanyahu’s days are numbered  12h27 24 novembre
The decision to indict Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on three separate criminal counts pushes the country’s already unprecedented electoral stalemate into the entirely uncharted territory of a constitutional crisis. There is no legal precedent for a prime minister facing a trial while...
How the hand of Israeli spy tech reaches deep into our lives  16h21 11 novembre
Digital-age weapons developed by Israel to oppress Palestinians under occupation are rapidly being repurposed for much wider applications - against Western populations who have long taken their freedoms for granted.
Israel is silencing the last voices trying to prevent abuse of Palestinians  16h21 10 novembre
It is a sign of Israel’s overweening confidence in its own impunity that it so openly violates the rights of those whose job it is to monitor human rights. Palestinians, meanwhile, are rapidly losing the very last voices prepared to stand up and defend them against the systematic abuses associated...
