CAMERA - The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America is devoted to promoting accurate and balanced media coverage of Israel and the Middle East. They clearly haven't been able to solve the problem, but the bias against Israel in the media would be even worse without their important work.

Middle East Media Research Institute - This influential organization supports Israel by translating Arab reports and then telling Westerners what the Arabs really are saying. The information is widely used by pro-Israel lobbyists and Israel's supporters in the US Congress.

The Fatah Constitution - This document states the goals of the "moderate" "Palestinian" (sic) party that Israel and the United States have given hundreds of millions of dollars and weaponry to. Are we crazy, or are we crazy? This link to the Palestinian Authority's despicable constitution no longer exists.

On the rights of Jews to live in Yehuda and Shomron - This article explains why Jews, sometimes derogatorily referred to as settlers, have a legal right to live along the west bank of the Jordan River. It deals only with their legal right under international law and not their God-given right to do so.

A 2017 article by Ariel Natan Pasko, who offers a third approach to defending the right of the Jews to Eretz Israel. I know nothing about this author, but found his approach refreshing and interesting, especially in light of the failure for nearly a decade of the seemingly cogent arguments of Professors Weiss and Gavison to make a dent in the world's anti-Semetic thinking. The Ballad of Oslo's Children - Often, in the struggle to go forward, we forget the past. This video, from CarolynGlick.com, reminds us.

An inspiring video of comments by Rabbi Shalom Gold on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem.

Lecture by Prof. Eugene Kontorovich of Northwestern University. This 1-hr lecture demonstrates how faulty the assertion that Israel's settlements are illegal really is. Although it is one hour long, it is anything but dry, and worth every minute.

The San Remo Conference gave legitimacy to the Jewish right to settle all of Israel, including Judea and Samaria, and also what is today called Jordan. This is clearly explained in articles by Shmuel Katz and Howard Grief.
