Catherine Ashton - Hoge vertegenwoordiger voor buitenlandse zaken en veiligheidsbeleid van de EU"No backtracking on settlement guidelines, say former EU leaders"

'Softening rules against Israeli entities beyond '67 lines will undermine Palestinians' trust in peace-talks'

A group of former high-level European officials has urged the European Union not to ease or delay new settlement guidelines regarding funding of Israeli entities in the West Bank, Golan Heights or East Jerusalem, particularly as they apply to the Horizon 2020 scientific cooperation program. ...

Two new scholarly books show how even the most neutral academic can feel bound to answer anti-Semites' demonic vigor in kind - By David Mikics - September 4, 2013 - tabletmag.com

In many parts of the world, Jews are increasingly unwelcome in the 21st century. The number of countries in which wearing visibly Jewish clothing such as a kippa means risking physical violence has hit an all-time high. On both the individual and the national level, Jews are targeted with extraordinary ferocity: We hear Israelis (but no one else) being compared to Nazis; we are told that Jewish nationalism is oppressive and archaic; that Israel is a uniquely racist country; that Israel's terrible misdeeds explain why people hate Jews. Instead of being seen as ordinary or all too human, Jews are seen as carriers of a uniquely transcendent evil. No other group of people on the planet is accused so much and of such fantastic wrongs. For a few decades after the Holocaust, it seemed that anti-Semitism might wane or even die out. That hope has now been defeated. Could anything we do or say stem the tide, or will Jew-hatred persist as long as there are Jews to hate? ...

Jacques Weber"L'obsession anti-israélienne de Jacques Weber" - Publié le 10 septembre 2013 dans BrèvesMonde

Jacques Weber est un excellent comédien, subtil, élégant. Son jeu est plein de finesse. Il l'est moins dans sa pensée politique. À 13 h 15 dimanche 8 septembre, invité de France 2 par Laurent Delahousse, avec Ségolène Royal pour commenter l'actualité, ses propos lâchés au détour d'un commentaire qui invitait à la complexité ont mis en lumière la doxa enfouie sur les horreurs proche orientales. Avec Edgar Morin pour penseur référent Weber pose de justes questions : où commence la barbarie, quand commence le crime contre l'humanité ? Pourquoi réagir à propos de la Syrie alors que tant d'autres crimes sont commis par ailleurs ? Il questionne : pourquoi rester indifférent entre autres, devant la « grande détresse du peuple de Gaza ». Qu'est ce que cela veut dire ? Quel est le non-dit de cette interpellation ? ....

Amb Ron Prosor addresses UN Security Council [UN Photo/Devra Berkowitz]"Amb Prosor to UNSC on biased reports on the situation in the Middle East"

Ambassador Prosor: Turmoil and unrest are rampant from Tehran to Tunis. In Syria, over the past two and a half years, over 100,000 men, women, and children have been slaughtered and millions have fled their homes. At the time of the August report, the regime stood accused of using chemical weapons on its citizens.  Despite all this, the vast majority of the Middle East report centered on Israel and the Palestinians.

Hieronder de brief van Ron Prosor, permanente Israëlische ambassadeur bij de VN, in reactie op het rapport. ...

coffins-or-murdered-Coptic-ChristiansEgypt: Christians Killed for Ransom - by Raymond Ibrahim - September 2, 2013 - www.meforum.org

Not only are the churches, monasteries, and institutions of Egypt's Christians under attack by the Muslim Brotherhood and its supporters—nearly 100 now have been torched, destroyed, ransacked, etc.—but Christians themselves are under attack all throughout Egypt, with practically zero coverage in Western media.

Days ago, for example, Copts held a funeral for Wahid Jacob, a young Christian deacon who used to serve in St. John the Baptist Church, part of the Qusiya diocese in Asyut, Egypt. He was kidnapped on August 21 by "unknown persons" who demanded an exorbitant ransom from his impoverished family—1,200,000 Egyptian pounds (equivalent to $171,000 USD). ...
