Protest against the killing
They were—when Palestine activists, Palestinian activists in Palestine, were the first to actually tweet solidarity and support for them, that opened up a whole new realm.

The Regents of the University of California are now falsely equating anti-Semitism with anti-Zionism in a desperate effort to stop the successful Boycott, Divest, Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. Belgium, the site of a terrorist organization known as NATO, allows former Israeli security agents to run the security at the Brussels airport, the site of recent bombings, adding to suspicion that these bombings, like all previous bombings, were an inside job. California, a bellwether stat...

AIPAC, or the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, describes itself as the most important organization affecting the U.S. relationship with Israel. With a budget of $65 million, and membership now standing at over 100,000, it is no wonder that congressional staffers consider it one of the most powerful and effective lobbies on Capitol Hill.

Justice and judgment
While the US seems to be dithering, Russia appears to be in the ascent. With active military engagement in Syria and beefing up Iraqi forces with military hardware, the Russians appear, at least publicly to be a more reliable partner than the US – when it comes to fighting the IS. Russia has gotten results faster than the US-led coalition. Syed Mansur Hashim The writer is Assistant Editor, The Daily Star.
