 Behind the Headlines

  • The framework between the P5+1 and Iran

    05 Apr 2015
    The framework agreement would not block Iran's path to the bomb; it would pave Iran's path to the bomb. It will not result in a nuclear program for peaceful purposes, but in a nuclear weapons program.
  • Behind the Headlines: Reconstruction in Gaza

    15 Mar 2015
    While Israel is actively working to assist reconstruction in Gaza, implementation of the Gaza Reconstruction Mechanism is being slowed by bottlenecks stemming from the enmity between Hamas and the PA and the non-delivery of promised funding.
  • Behind the Headlines: Terrorist attacks in Copenhagen

    16 Feb 2015
    The terrorist attacks in Copenhagen bear the same hallmarks as the attacks in Paris in January: an attack by Islamist fundamentalists on a symbol of free speech critical to Islamist radicalism, followed by an assault on a Jewish site.
  • Behind the Headlines: Schabas' resignation from UNHRC Commission of Inquiry

    05 Feb 2015
    Schabas' resignation cannot whitewash the inherent bias of the commission itself, including its mandate. The international community should investigate the crimes of terrorists and not the actions of those defending themselves from terrorists.
  • Behind the Headlines: Hizbullah attack on Israel

    28 Jan 2015
    Hizbullah endangers the peace in Lebanon and the region. It is attempting to draw Israeli forces into hostilities that will undermine the fragile regional stability.
  • Behind the Headlines: PA appeal to the ICC

    04 Jan 2015
    Israel expects the International Criminal Court to unequivocally reject the PA’s hypocritical request because the Palestinian Authority is not a state. Furthermore, the PA is allied with Hamas, a terrorist organization that commits war crimes.
  • Behind the Headlines: Palestinian UN Security Council draft resolution

    30 Dec 2014
    This resolution lacks the components that would advance a future agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. An agreement between Israel and the Palestinians will only be achieved through bilateral negotiations.
  • Behind the Headlines: Premature recognition of a Palestinian state undermines peace

    26 Nov 2014
    The premature recognition of a Palestinian state will harm chances for peace as it rewards the PA for choosing Hamas as its partner in government and allows the Palestinians to ignore Israel's legitimate concerns.
  • Behind the Headlines: Terrorist attack in Jerusalem synagogue

    18 Nov 2014
    In the latest in a series of Palestinian terrorist attacks, Palestinian terrorists massacred innocent Jews at prayer, motivated by intensive Palestinian incitement to hatred, violence and terrorism against Israelis.
  • Behind the Headlines: Jerusalem's Temple Mount

    17 Nov 2014
    The Israeli authorities have sought to contain attempts to escalate the situation on the Temple Mount while protecting Muslim sensitivities and freedom of worship. Israel has no intention of changing the status quo.
