The Reform rabbi successfully influenced the local Jewish Federation into converting a proud Zionist statement into a celebration of multi-cultural kumbaya, the consequence of his interfaith dialogue with local Muslims.
The treatment of the suspects in the arson murder of three members of the Dawabshe family in the Arab town of Duma is deeply disturbing. To put a not-too-fine point on it, the suspects probably did not commit the crime, were arrested for political reasons, and were tortured to obtain confessions. This in the State of Israel in the 21st century.
The biggest and most damaging error made by Israel was the massive sacrifice offered in the Oslo Accords, allowing the dying, irrelevant PLO to come back to life, and to insert its cancerous cells into her body.
The law is stupid, and probably impossible to enforce fairly. You can’t legislate history. What happened, happened. It’s important to know what and how so perhaps it will be possible to keep it from happening again.
The uniqueness of the Holocaust is that the Jews were targeted for extermination for their genetic content. The Nazis saw the Jewish people as a species. Their goal was that there would be no more Jews in the world, ever. The thoroughness with which they approached this task was remarkable. Nobody else got that treatment.
Israel, smaller than New Jersey and with a population of 8 million, is not the address to solve the problems of the continent of Africa’s 1.2 billion people and should not be accepting the migrants
Daniel Pipes said nothing would be better for the Palestinians in the long run than losing hope, because the fundamental cause of the conflict is Palestinian rejectionism
Israel needs a death penalty, or that we should fire a cruise missile at the center of the town that the murderers came from and then build a Jewish town on the ruins.
In order for there to ever be peace between Israel and her neighbors, the Arabs must face reality: that Israel is a legitimate country belonging to a legitimate people, and that the Palestinians are not going to “return” to it, not ever. The charade of the “Palestinian refugee” must end.
The consequences in the region if the Iranian regime were replaced by one prioritizing economic development over foreign adventures would be immense. Israel would be overjoyed if the $ sent to Hezbollah stayed in Iran
Obama’s was the most consistently anti-Israel administration since the founding of the state of Israel, considering the deliberate insults and provocations. It also failed the American public by "permitting" Hezbollah’s narco-terrorism
Do the Palestinians expect that the US will say that all of Jerusalem belongs to them? Clearly not. So why the rage, the riots, the rockets and the terrorism?
Rabbinical students with such an obviously limited understanding of Jewish history, both ancient and recent, who hear the cries of their “Palestinian brothers and sisters” more loudly than those of their Jewish ones who are being stabbed on the street in the Jerusalem that they claim to love so much, should find another line of work than being rabbis.
Trump can’t make Jerusalem our capital – only the people of Israel can do that. But his statement represents a crack in the truly anti-Semitic double standard that has been applied to Israel with respect to Jerusalem since 1948.
I think it’s worth emphasizing the surreal nature of this issue. Israel controls Jerusalem. No other nation has made Jerusalem its capital city since the Jebusites lost it to King David’s army around 1000 BCE.
The New Israel Fund is in effect the military wing of the Reform Movement, using $ instead of rockets as weapons, annually giving millions to groups working to remake the state of Israel in accordance with its vision, and even to some groups whose goal is to destroy it.
Why should Israel be paying-with land and concessions-for things it should be getting as a matter of course?
The truth, that Israel is populated by all kinds of people who are not alienated from their society and not suffering from endemic racism is simply too much for the social-justice-warriors
Jacobs clearly sees himself as the Jewish Martin Luther King Jr., and would like nothing more than to get arrested on behalf of his struggle. But there is almost nothing in common between the civil rights movement of the 1960s and Jacob’s attempts to provoke confrontations at one of Judaism’s holiest sites
To European Jews – and I include the UK – I have a simple message: get out. The natives don’t like you (they never did) and Islamification is exploding. It can’t get better, only worse
Zionism today is the ideology that insists that not only is it just that there is a Jewish state, but that it is essential for the survival of the Jewish people and must be protected
One of the first objectives of warfare in the Middle East – before the physical destruction of an enemy – is the destruction of his honor. A man or nation that can’t keep its possessions loses honor as well.
Israelis couldn’t possibly care less about mixed gender prayer. But for liberal American Jews, it plays the same role as “al-Aqsa is in danger” does for Arabs, inciting fury against Israel and its leadership.
Israel needs to express that it's tired of abuse. Getting a divorce from UNESCO was a good start, now it should tell the hosts of the Judo competition in Abu Dhabi that their singling out Israel is unacceptable.
Israel’s next war, which may be fought on several fronts simultaneously, has the potential to hurt many more civilians than any of her previous wars, both in Israel and among her immediate antagonists,
