Why have the Arab nations have allowed the issue of Palestinian refugees to continue? One simple reason which I call the First Principle of Arab Leadership: it is always more important to hurt Jews than to help Arabs.
It is not acceptable that there is a culture in which killing Jews is permissible and encouraged. It is our responsibility to our people to put an end to it. To destroy the culture of hate and death.
Everything in this story is surreal. Imagine: Hillel Garmi believes that Hamas is nonviolent, and Luhar Altman thinks that Israel should not have an army. And a Jewish Palestinian wishes for “many more like them.”
Israel is presently weathering an intensely hostile political climate in a world where ethnic nationalism is considered evil. Rather than hide who we are, we should broadcast it. It might not make the world like us any more, but at least they will better understand what we are fighting for.
Of course Bibi has his flaws, but I think I join many Israelis who do not see among the potential candidates to lead the nation one that could better ensure our security. And that is the issue, light years ahead of the price of apartments and his wife’s taste in champagne.
The Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC), created and primarily funded by the American Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) has proudly announced the establishment of a “Racism Crisis Center” in Israel.
Ha’aretz speaks for the small, even tiny, minority of Jewish Israelis that make up the extreme Left. But it has far greater influence than its circulation figures indicate because its stories work their way into talking points in world capitals.
We have things backwards. We are the stronger power, and thus Hamas should be the ones begging for negotiations. We are not deterring them. They are deterring us
The question shouldn’t be “how can we stop incendiary kites?” Rather, we should ask “how we can hurt the Gazans – o badly, so disproportionately, that they will be very sorry that they tried to burn our country.
Israelis, according to the 2017 World Happiness Report, are happier than most of the world, coming in 11th out of 155 countries (the US only made 14th place) There is something special here. In my opinion, it is a sense of national purpose
Why does the world try to maintain the laughable distinction between anti-Semitism, which they claim to abhor, and “criticism of Israel” that invariably includes demonization, delegitimization, and double standards? What forces them to take this position?
Muslims who believe that jihad for the sake of recovering land is praiseworthy--regardless of the means. In other words, the murder of the two policemen is not seen as immoral, but Jewish control of Muslim Palestinians is.
The Rabbinut’s power is based on laws which have been passed because religious parties always are an essential part of coalition governments. This has been true for coalitions of the Left and Right since the founding of the state
Many observers have said that Israel would be better off with a fully volunteer, professional army. Paradoxically, some of the best things in Israeli life come from the years of compulsory servitude dictated by universal conscription
By saying that the demolition policy could also be applied to Jewish terrorists in some cases, Israel's Supreme Court is implying that there is an equivalence between Arab terrorism and certain crimes committed by Jews against Arabs.
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.
Many American Jews, especially younger ones, are not able to withstand the assault on their sense of peoplehood. It’s not surprising, because this identification has been suppressed by the American educational system and media from their earliest years.
Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people for millennia, whether we controlled it or not. Trump has a chance to recognize it as Israel's capital and end the hypocrisy of 3 administrations
A great, quick overview of the Jewish legal claim to Israel.
Many Women of the Wall members applauded the passage of UNSC resolution 2334 demanding Israel return to pre-67 borders. WoW has no problem with the Kotel in Arab hands, just no separate prayers!
The Left, having been emasculated at the ballot box, now uses the Court to achieve its aims and it is attempting to do so again with the appointment of Rabbi Karim to the post of IDF Chief Rabbi
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.
Unfortunately, the attitude of the international community does not grant to Israel the same right of self-defense that every other nation is given. Even when Israel has been attacked, a the Islamic-European-NGO-media axis has defined Israel as the aggressor.
it only seems reasonable in view of the extreme and violent hostility of much of the Arab population of the area to Israel and Jews, that Israel should follow Pakistan’s example and exclude “enemies of the state” from citizenship.
I felt sorry and sad when I saw the 16-year old Arab girl lying in the road after she was shot. She was someone’s...
