My opinion was formed from living in Israel, witnessing the horror of terror, reading the misinformation and downright lies perpetrated by the Western media, seen the incompetence of Israeli leaders to project the facts. My website comes from a particularly personal perspective. The articles may be controversial and provocative. For whatever strikes Israel today will surely visit you tomorrow.

The Secret Jews

Jun 22, 2011 — Barry Shaw

I strongly recommend that you research a fascinating and tragic period of Jewish history that stretched for more than three hundred years yet is little known.

The story of the Anusim, the Secret Jews, is a valuable and significant, yet rarely discovered, Jewish event that, in its world range, the numbers of Jews killed or affected by it for centuries can be called the longest genocide in world history.


The Naksa Border Invasion—why it failed

Jun 11, 2011 — Barry Shaw

Following a trial run in May a coordinated effort was launched by Hamas, Hizbollah, and the Syrian regime to mount a massive three-pronged border invasion into Israel. The aim was to gain international propaganda by the sight of thousands of unarmed protesters demonstrating their desire “to return home to Palestine”. The anticipated numbers were put at 100,000.

President Obama recently showed his naivety in discussing the Palestinian problem when he made an issue of ’67 borders with minor alterations a major condition that Israel must cede for the imminent creation of a newly formed Palestinian state.

The Forgotten Legitimacy of Israel

Feb 24, 2011 — Barry Shaw

In an era in which the main battlefield against Israel is the campaign to delegitimize the very existence of the Jewish state it is of vital importance to challenge the false narratives that are being thrown into the public discourse and gradually being accepted by governments and also, as a consequence, by a wider audience.

The narrative tells of a dispossessed Palestine whose rights have been usurped by colonial invaders who have conquered their land through the Zionist enterprise. They are, in is claimed, made to suffer by the imposition of a European Holocaust which has left them paying the price. Driven out of their land by Jewish interlopers the remnants have been occupied and oppressed by a brutal ‘Nazi’-like regime.

Enough of Palestinian lies. It’s time to start fighting back with the truth

May 18, 2010 — Barry Shaw

The Holocaust and its relevance today
