The expensive joke that is the UN
The UN is one of the most underrated – and expensive – comedy shows ever. UN member state the Philippines has been devasted by a recent typhoon, with huge loss of life and the eradication of many communities and population centres. UN member state Syria increasingly resembles an apocalyptic graveyard. UN member state Lebanon is […]
The truth about the UN – and about Israel
This short video clip delivers a few well-expressed truths about the UN, about Israel, and about the “Palestinian state” and its fanatical backers in the Arab and wider Muslim worlds, aided and abetted by countries notorious for their serial human rights abuses.

Hamas can win it all
Hamas can have all they want, but they refuse to pay the price. The price is immensely high – the terrorist organisation will have to release from illegal incarceration a young Israeli kidnapped from Israel while he was still a teenager. That boy’s name is Gilad Schalit. It’s naturally a price Hamas cannot accept. We […]
Islamist war on democracy in full swing
Islamism’s war on democracy is ratcheting up. A lot of nonsense has been written about the legality or otherwise of Israel’s actions against a combined Islamist/left-wing campaign to discredit Israel’s blockade on arms shipments to terror organisation Hamas. There’s no “or otherwise” about it. Israel’s actions were entirely legal. Even according to that hallowed icon […]
Put an end to the occupation
