The uncomfortable reality Auntie BBC has to face

Time to end an absolute wrong on Hezbollah

We’re not attacking free speech, but hate speech

A perverse event that helps Palestinians to avoid peace
Over the next few weeks the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (BDS) will launch ‘Israel Apartheid Week’ focused on university campuses across the country. Before these events start, the Israel Britain Alliance (IBA) will expose the real story. I remember apartheid. My family took delivery...

Lose your apathy and join the fight against ignorance
Since the start of February, I’ve been charting a course for the new kid on the Israel advocacy block in our country, the Israel Britain Alliance (IBA). We celebrate everything Israel. Its vibrant democracy, its values and its innovation, much of which would be lost...
