As the Obama administration draws to a close, there is increasing pressure on Israel. A new UN resolution suggests that the Israeli occupation of some Palestinian territories is unlawful, and outgoing Secretary of State John Kerry has warned that Israel's future as a democracy is at stake. But are these noises just the sound of an administration in its final throes? Or do they represent President Obama's mistrust of the region? President-elect Trump has implied that he will foster a friendlier relationship with Israel than his predecessor. In…

In the financial year 2015-16, the British taxpayer paid a minimum of £6 million to charities that are, or have been in the past, connected to Islamist extremists.

In addition to this, taxpayer money is also reaching such charities through the European Commission. Figures from across the Islamist spectrum, including the Muslim Brotherhood, form a network…

Committee Room 3A, House of Lords, Westminster
London, SW1A 0AA United Kingdom

In 2010, with little media notice or public visibility, a group of dedicated Iranian patriots initiated a series of Iran Democratic Transition Conferences in…
