Israeli Flags in Jerusalem & Threats of War From Hamas & Islamic Jihad in Palestine (PIJ) | Is Another Violent Round Between Israel & Gaza Around the Corner?

Tomorrow (Sunday, May 29, 2022) is Yom Yerushalayim – Jerusalem Day. This annual event celebrates the unification (according to the Zionist narrative) of Jerusalem following the 1967 war. One of the centerpieces of the day is an event known as the Flag Parade, during which thousands of Israelis carrying Israeli flags are expected to march through the city streets –…

April 30, 2022 In April 2022, Muslims mark the holy month of Ramadan. Throughout April, violent clashes took place in the al-Aqsa compound in Jerusalem between Palestinians and Israeli police.

Is the Israel Egypt Peace Treaty in Jeopardy?

September 1, 2012 by Avi Melamed The calls in Egypt today to revise and even to abolish the Israeli-Egyptian Peace Treaty have grabbed the headlines.  Is the Treaty in danger?  Will it be abolished?  From my analysis the answer is no.  What follows is my reasoning. The main characteristic defining the atmosphere in Egypt today is what I have labeled “political fever.”  More than 20 Egyptians have announced their intention to run for president and dozens of political parties have been formed in the wake of the Mubarak government’s demise. At the same time contemporary Egypt faces enormous challenges.  The most important of these involves their anemic economy which is on the verge of bankruptcy.  It is not at all clear…

The Magic Card Called Israel

June 10, 2011 by Avi Melamed In this short article I would like to share with you a basic rule regarding Israel and the Arab world. The rule is simple – Israel was, is, and to many Arabs will continue to be – a tool, a platform upon which Arab politicians, leaders, scholars, journalists and others could gain popularity, fame and support. Israel is a sure card for these people and many others in the Arab world.  You can always incite against Israel, criticize Israel, attack Israel, and condemn Israel.  That’s a great way to escape responsibility, to avoid the need to confront the real challenges and along the way to gain popularity. A perfect example for that rule was…
