From Ian:

Handing Jerusalem to the Palestinians
"The use of the term “Judaization” (by a UN official no less) which, can be understood to denote a process by which something which is not Jewish is made so, is to deny the Jewish character of Jerusalem and to perpetuate a new and highly politicized history aimed at advancing Palestinian national aspirations, not in tandem with the development of the Jewish State, but in place of it.
Rolnik’s outrageous use of the term suggests that Jewish life in Jerusalem is somehow alien and cannot be tolerated.
Perhaps the most troubling aspect of her comments is the implication that Palestinian interests can only be advanced by denying the long, unbroken Jewish connection to the land. An approach which seems fundamentally inconsistent with the idea of a mutual recognition of Jewish and Palestinian movements and a co-existence of two states borne of such movements.
It is significant that blatant distortions of history and a denial of Jewish Jerusalem have gradually shifted from the arena of the Palestinian Authority to the domain of purportedly non-partisan NGOs and the UN. Ironically, such distortions, far from advancing Palestinian national aspirations, in fact undermine the notions of mutual recognition and understanding which are essential precursors to any negotiated peace."

Israel slams EU decision that puts parts of Modiin outside of tax agreement
"EU declares that parts of the city that are built on no-man's land cannot be covered by free-trade agreement Foreign Ministry: The EU ignores reality when it extends the domain of conflict to places and issues that do not belong there."

Holocaust denial undermines the Palestinian cause
“...denial also serves a wider purpose for Palestinian leaders. If they can successfully minimise, trivialise or deny Jewish suffering, they can portray Palestinians as the only victims of the conflict. It will be they, not the Jews, who demand sympathy and reparation from the world. And it can prevent them from acknowledging that the former Palestinian leader, Haj Amin Al-Husseini, was a pro-Nazi war criminal with Jewish blood on his hands.
Palestinian leaders must stop this egregious falsification of history which merely propagates further hatred and intolerance within their society. More importantly, Western leaders must hold Abbas to account for the PA's daily incitement against Jews and Israel.”

Honest Reporting: BBC Man Lands New York Times Top Job
“This is the same Mark Thompson who was forced to concede to a UK parliamentary hearing that the BBC had got it wrong over coverage of the Itamar massacre. Indeed, this is the same director general that has overseen a wealth of anti-Israel bias at the BBC since he became director general in 2004.
The New York Times’ coverage of Israel is already problematic in the eyes of many. Is this latest appointment a sign that the Gray Lady could descend even further to the level of the BBC?”

Groups demand halt of Berlin anti-Israel march
“BERLIN – The daily (B.Z.) Berliner Zeitung's‘s popular columnist Gunnar Schupelius has called on the Berlin authorities to ban a pro-Iranian regime demonstration slated for Saturday, because the Islamists who planned the march have declared death to the Jews and the destruction of the State of Israel. Pro-Israel and anti-Iran regime groups issued a call to oppose the al-Quds Day protest.”
“In the Dagbladet editorial, the paper asked in connection with Syria, “Where are the Norwegian activists now? Why do no Norwegian health workers want to do an effort in parts of Syria controlled by the insurgents?” A translation of the article first appeared on the pro-Israel media watchdog website Tundra Tabloids. Dagbladet added, “But on the whole we can probably just conclude that this is an internal Arab conflict, where one cannot bash Israel. Thus Israeli authorities have a point when they criticize the world for neglecting the Syrian population.”

And I don't think I linked to this Arutz-7 piece that mentioned me on Sunday.

The NYT piece on the latest olim, including "lone soldiers," is pretty good (and making the anti-Zionists heads explode.)

Commentary has "Attacking Israel Online."
