Don’t Be Misled By Iran-Hamas Split

Hamas departure from the Iranian fold does not mean the Palestinian militant group has suddenly embraced moderation, writes Jonathan Tobin in Commentary Magazine.

Hamas has not changed its spots, just its donors. The alliance between radical Shiites in Iran and the radical Sunnis of Hamas was always one of convenience rather than conviction. They are much happier aligning themselves with Arabs than with the Persian power that is viewed with distrust by most of the region. More important, closer ties with the Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s Islamist party in Turkey allows them to pose as a mainstream Arab government in waiting rather than the terrorist group that they really are.

Anti-Semitism on the Rise in Europe

Writing in Algemeiner, Tal Ofer stresses the importance of Jewish action to counter this phenomenon. 

Anti-Semitism has deep roots in Europe and there are different sources and motivations for it. The sources are not important, the need for solutions and eradicating it is. There are three pillars in the fight against anti-Semitism: Legislation, Law-Enforcement and Education.
