From Ian:

Are Labour MEPs anti-Semitic?
Clearly, Labour MEPs care as little for the plight of Palestinian Arabs of the “West Bank” as they do for the Sahrawi Arabs of the Western Sahara; the former are just another stick with which to bash Israel. They are lying when they say otherwise."

The EU’s Hezbollah fixation
Israel. Europe permits a dormant terrorist potential to thrive in its midst, and it knows so, its denials notwithstanding.
"Yet back in EU headquarters, Hezbollah is confoundingly still regarded as a social movement, part of Lebanon’s legitimate civic and political structure, rather than the Iranian-backed terrorism-exporter that it is. Europe inexplicably remains impervious to Hezbollah’s exceptionally bloody record and ongoing war crimes."

Christian Zionist group: Israel’s case is not being made on the Left
David Brog, head of Christians United for Israel: ‘When Christians turn against Israel, that’s a job for us. When liberals abandon Israel, that’s a challenge for our liberal friends’
“There’s a very good track record of conservatives taking on anti-Israel opinion [among their political allies] that has resulted in what we see today, which is very strong support. It’s not uncritical, but it’s very strong, solid support for Israel in the Republican Party. And that’s got to be the example, because today the problem isn’t on the right. Today the problem is on the left.”

PM: We will build J'lem like they build London, Paris, DC
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday responded to international criticism of a plan to build 797 homes in Gilo, saying that Israel will continue construction in Jerusalem in the same way that the international community builds in their own individual capitals.
"We place no limits on construction in our capital city," Netanyahu said at the start of a cabinet meeting. "Just as they build in London, Paris, Washington and Moscow, we will continue to build in Jerusalem."

Low voter turnout hurts Fatah in first Palestinian elections in six years
"Turnout was just under 55 percent, reflecting voter apathy, and in several key towns, Fatah renegades won more council seats than candidates endorsed by Abbas’ party, election officials said."

According to The Sun, the 'youths' in question were 'Asian' hoodies about 12 years of age. Sadly, this was not an isolated incident, with other vendors being abused in the city centre, two of them being ‘set upon’ and one having her collection tin stolen.

A story I think I missed from September:

Hamas destroys cultural center   (h/t L King)
The Al-Etehad Gallery in Gaza was unique: until last week it was the last cultural center on Hamas government land allowed to stay open. A symbol of the arts in Gaza, a place desperately in need of cultural distractions, it catered to families looking for some respite from the Occupation.

But that all changed last week when Hamas officials decided to bulldoze the building. According to government sources, the gallery owners were late on their rent payments but most Gazans raised more than an eyebrow at this ‘reason’ for the destruction of yet another cultural center.

An Arab maverick in Israel (Tablet)
“I sent three of my boys to military service with full conviction,” Juhja tells me over muddy coffee and cigarettes in his home. “For an Arab, sending one’s sons into the army is a brave decision. I’m a trailblazer.”

In 2004 one of those sons, 19-year-old Staff Sgt. Sa’id Juhja, paid the ultimate price for the Jewish state when he was killed in a bomb attack in Gaza. Shortly after, the bereaved father built a memorial to his son and seven other Arab soldiers killed in uniform over the years. The site—built on Juhja’s own initiative, property, and dime—is the only one of its kind in Israel.
