      Mehdi Hasan’s Inconsistent Standards

      Hasan’s comments highlight a reality about much of anti-Israel activism. Criticism of Israel isn’t so much based on what Israel does or doesn’t do, as the activists will find a way to criticize it either way. Instead, criticism of Israel is about its existence in the first place.

      Muna El-Kurd: Jews are Zionist Dogs, and ‘Palestine’ Should Be Ethnically Cleansed of Them

      The statement also exposes the emptiness of the supposed “principles” of individuals like El-Kurd.
