India and Israel: The Need for a Nuanced Understanding

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/india-and-israel-the-need-for-a-nuanced-understanding/

In the post-WWII bipolar world order, two countries emerged facing similar problems – India (1947) and Israel (1948). Both had to fight wars immediately. While for India it was about the accession of a territory (Kashmir), for Israel it was about survival, following an attack by seven Arab nations (Syria, Lebanon, Transjordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, […]

Realism and Morality: What Is Really Stopping a Forever Ceasefire?

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/realism-and-morality-what-is-really-stopping-a-forever-ceasefire/

A point of principle and a forever war A number of commentators on the conflict in what was for centuries called the region of Palestine cast it in terms of a forever war. After all, it has been going on for more than a hundred years, which certainly seems like forever. It started when the […]

Is it right to blame Israel for the plight of Arabs in Gaza? International Law: Self-Defence, Retaliation and the Israel-Hamas War

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/is-it-right-to-blame-israel-for-the-plight-of-arabs-in-gaza-international-law-self-defence-retaliation-and-the-israel-hamas-war/

The notions of ‘self-defence’ and ‘retaliation’ within the realm of international law present intricate ideas, but their principles are well-established. International law unequivocally acknowledges the right to ‘self-defence’ as an inherent entitlement of sovereign states. According to Article 51 of the United Nations Charter, member states have the authority to employ force in ‘self-defence’ when […]

An Attempt to Destroy the Peace Process with Hate

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/october-7-an-analysis/

The terrorist attack on the 7th of October was devastating against the people of Israel, an attack planned and executed by Hamas. This attack resulted in the death and kidnapping of numerous people in the state of Israel. This attack has led the Israeli state to start a military action against Hamas who are based […]

Response to Hamas horror shows the feminist movement has lost its moral compass

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/response-to-hamas-horror-shows-the-feminist-movement-has-lost-its-moral-compass/

I have pioneered women’s rights for more than 50 years. Sadly, I must conclude that what was once a diverse and independent-minded movement has become hijacked by a “woke” death cult. Those American feminists left standing, including the icons among us, primarily favor gender over sex identity; are pro-trans rather than pro-biological-womankind; and are more […]

ISGAP Fellows Reject Antisemitic Tropes in Amnesty Report

https://isgap.org/post/2022/04/isgap-rejects-amnestys-report-on-israel/

“ISGAP strongly rejects the biased antisemitic tropes found within Amnesty International’s recent report, “Israel’s Apartheid Against Palestinians: Cruel System of Domination and Crime Against Humanity.” The bending of history and facts in this report is a prime example of how contemporary antisemitism manifests itself, with the sole goal of dismantling the only Jewish State.”  ISGAP […]

Projecting Malice, the Classic Antisemitic Trope: Amnesty International’s Apartheid Report

https://isgap.org/post/2022/03/projecting-malice-the-classic-antisemitic-trope-amnesty-internationals-apartheid-report/

Richard Landes, Chair, Council of Scholars SPME Many have commented on the systematic effort of Amnesty International’s Apartheid Report to stigmatize Israel, to stretch beyond recognition the definition of “Apartheid” and “race” in order to accuse Israel of “crimes against humanity.” It is worth noting that this effort is unparalleled in Amnesty’s research on other countries, where […]
