Israel is doing better than ever but the relative stability of the post-WWII period – or even of the longer Western ascendance over the Ottoman empire – may be coming to an end
Israeli aircraft bombed targets in Syria, preventing the transfer of “advanced weapons” from Iran to Hezbollah, Though this was not the first such bombing, this time things were VERY different
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...
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.
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.
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.
The pollution of language by advocates for a Palestinian state – i.e., the use of the phrases “State of Palestine” and “Israel-Palestine” to suggest that there already is such a state – must be rejected in the interest of truth.
Hezbollah's stated goals since its founding in 1985 were the elimination of Western influence, the assertion of Islamic (Shiite) dominance over Lebanon and the destruction of Israel. Nothing's changed
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,
If America goes down, so does that thing called Western civilization. Unfortunately, the American political system has failed: there is no great leader anywhere near the horizon.
With the 2016 presidential campaign, it seems as though there has been an explosion of Jew-hatred. Is this true? Who is responsible?
Trump's chance came from a combination of circumstances: The economic slaughter of America's working class and Obama's contempt for this group. PC mania, and a grossly dishonest/disliked Dem candidate
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
Obama is easily “infuriated” by Israel but the problem in the US-Israel relationship is America has trouble treating Israel as a sovereign nation.
Assimilation protects the individual against Jew-hatred (sometimes). But it works together with Jew-hatred against the survival of the Jewish people.
Peres has always been a Zionist and does not believe that there is an irreconcilable conflict between the Jewishness of the state and democracy, nor that one should be sacrificed for the other
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!
Even the most secular Israelis don’t agree that American Reform Jews should decide what Israel does in the holy places that were regained with the blood of its soldiers. They may passionately hate the Rabbinate, but it is OUR Rabbinate that they hate.
The fundamental issue and biggest problem is that the Israeli government tacitly accepts the idea that Judea and Samaria are occupied territories – in other words, land that belongs to somebody else
The funeral should have been held on the day Peres died, as is customary in Judaism. Then it would have been impossible for most of these political celebrities to be here.
Virtually all Palestinians believe a false narrative designed to combine with the features of the Arab and Muslim culture in such a way as to create endless, insoluble conflict with the Jewish state.
In effect, the money given to Gaza was converted into weapons. And that provides a way to solve the problem: we can convert it back.
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.
The insurmountable obstacle to a deal is that the essence of the Palestinian movement is the denial of a state belonging to the Jewish people in any part of the land between the river and the sea
