The New Atheist movement in the US, most notably championed by Sam Harris, has a blatant pro-Israel stance that we need to refute, argues Karim Safieddine.

Looking at the New Atheists’ stance on Israel, and particularly the American philosopher Sam Harris, one would unsurprisingly arrive at a map of contradictions that can only be explained in political terms.

Harris avoids holding Israel accountable for this “brutalisation” – as he calls it – and accuses pro-Palestinian activists of being misled and “driven” by the horrifying images of infants and women being, basically, shred to pieces by Israeli warplanes.
