Voor het eerst heeft de Nederlandse oud-premier Dries van Agt ingestemd met een langdurig tv- debat met Hans Knoop over het Israelisch-Palestijns conflict en gaat hij uitvoerig in op de beschuldiging dat hij antisemiet zou zijn.

Van Agt en Hans Knoop kennen elkaar meer dan vier decennia en kwamen met name tijdens de Zaak Menten als kemphanen tegenover elkaar te staan.

Dries van Agt was toentertijd minister van justitie.

In journalistieke kringen wordt met ongewoon grote belangstelling naar het gesprek uitgekeken dat sinds gisteren 17 september online staat op Café Weltschmerz

"UN Chief Guterres, the Media and Palestinian Fake News" - by Bassam Tawil - Gatestone Institute

- One of the mothers who attended the meeting with the UN chief was Latifa Abu Hmaid. Four of her sons, Nasser, Sharif, Nasr and Mohammed are serving multiple life sentences for their role in terrorism. The Palestinian Authority (PA) chose the mother of these terrorists because they are all members of President Mahmoud Abbas's ruling Fatah faction, which is regularly described by Western media outlets as a moderate and pragmatic Palestinian party that believes in the two-state solution and peace with Israel.

- The minimum the UN chief and his aides could have done is to call out the PA leadership and condemn it for the ambush and the fabricated report from the official Palestinian news agency. Had Israel been involved in a similar incident, we would have witnessed a diplomatic crisis, prompted by the UN secretary general and his spokesmen as well as the international media. Palestinians, as usual, are given a pass.

- The lie about "Jewish extremists" setting fire to the Al-Aqsa Mosque has become so widespread and accepted that even senior Muslim scholars such as Abbas's Grand Mufti, Sheikh Mohamed Hussein, has also been spreading the blood libel. He and most Palestinians continue to describe the Australian Christian arsonist as a "Jewish extremist."

- According to the Palestinian propaganda machine, nearly without exception, the terrorists were on their way to buy bread for their mothers or visit their grandmothers. These were innocent victims, the story goes, arrested or shot by Israel for no reason. Then there are the lies about Israelis "planting" knives near the bodies of terrorists who stab or try to murder Jews. Western journalists and others accept these lies as facts. ...

"What Europe can learn from Israel in its war against vehicle attacks and lone wolf terror"

The van terror attack in Barcelona follows a similar wave of car rammings in Nice, London, Paris, Berlin, and Stockholm. By Colonel Richard Kemp, Arsen Ostrovsky

Shortly after the horrific terror attack in Barcelona last week, which claimed the lives of 14 people, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said terrorism is Europe's main problem "right now".

Similarly, it was not until the London Bridge car ramming in June this year that killed 8 people, that UK Prime Minister Theresa May said "enough is enough". But therein lies the problem.

Jihadists have been waging terror in Europe for years now and 'enough' was enough after the first attack. But European leaders have largely been in denial, only now beginning to concede there is a problem, and even still, many refusing to identify and confront the radical Islam at the root of this war. ...

" Is This Miu Miu Dress Mocking the Holocaust? "

A photo of a Miu Miu plaid dress with a yellow star appliqué seen in the window of Canadian luxury retailer Holt Renfrew circulated on social media over the weekend, and people are outraged.

Comments on a closed Facebook forum ranged from, "They spelled Jew wrong," to "Shame on them!" Some observed that the star shape in question only had five points and wasn't actually a Jewish star, but that the placement and symbolism is what concerned them. Others thought the dress itself was cute, but that the overall look was tone-deaf.

Het Europese Hof van Justitie bevestigt de beslissing van de Europese Raad om de islamistische Hamas op de lijst met terreurorganisaties te laten staan.

Hamas belandde eind 2001 op de zwarte lijst van de EU. In december 2014 besliste het EU-Gerecht dat Hamas van de lijst gehaald moest worden, omdat de vermelding gebaseerd was op "feitelijke aantijgingen gehaald uit de pers en het internet", in plaats van handelingen die onderzocht en bevestigd werden door de autoriteiten.

De Europese regeringen gingen in beroep tegen die beslissing bij het Europees Hof. Met de beslissing komt deze zaak terug bij het Europees gerecht.

Sinds 2007 controleert de groepering de Gazastrook. ...
