But What about the Druze?

I see the law as absolutely necessary to protect the Jewish state against the post-Zionist elite and the European-funded NGOs. But I also see the reaction of the Druze to the law as a major failure of our leadership.

Urgent Advice to My Fellow Jews

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

Abolish the Rabbinut!

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

Why War Between Israel and Iran is Unlikely Today

Though I’ve been expecting a hot war soon, recent developments are changing my mind. The strategy of deterrence and interdiction seems to be working on our northern border, and firm resistance to Hamas’ attempts to overrun our southern one seems – so far – to be effective.

Taking the Ghetto out of the Jew

Some pay lip service to the idea of Israel as a Jewish state. It upsets them when they encounter the condemnation of the anti-Zionist world., so they come up with reasons to oppose the Nation-State Law and other overt expressions of Zionism. But their real motivation is embarrassment.

The REAL Meaning of “Never Again”

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.

Diasporism, a Bad Idea Whose Time has Come

The Diaspora is a dead end for Jews, both physically and culturally. You can make a case for the continuance of Jewish communities in the Diaspora, and you can find many areas in which Israel needs to improve. But the necessity and centrality of the Jewish state to the continued existence of the Jewish people is indisputable.

How Multicultural, Intersectional Post-Colonialism Takes us Back to the Middle Ages

The 'identity politics' that supposedly grew out of concern for human rights then turns around and negates those rights. This supposed progress turns back time, hurting us all.

Islam is Not a religion

It is not a human right in the West to espouse, as does Islam, an ideology that embraces conquest and destruction of Western civilization. Islam is not merely a religion, it is an ideology.

What to do about the Kites?

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.

Taking the First Step to Ending our Unhealthy Dependence

Obama is easily “infuriated” by Israel but the problem in the US-Israel relationship is America has trouble treating Israel as a sovereign nation.

As Mr. Trump Well Knows, Sometimes There Just isn’t a Deal

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

How Israel Could Prevail in Today’s Asymmetric Conflict

There is no doubt that stepped-up attacks on Hamas and Hezbollah, which will necessarily cause civilian casualties in Gaza and Lebanon, will be met with a massive propaganda, diplomatic, and legal attack orchestrated by our European soft enemies. This is where our American ally, which still has great leverage in Europe, could step in.

Why they Hate the Nation-State Law

he law is intended to set a bottom line, to build a fence around the fundamental Zionist principles of the state and keep them from eroding. It also makes an explicit statement about what kind of state we are and aspire to be.

Trumping Jerusalem!

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 Third Lebanon War will be the Last Lebanon War

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

No, it isn’t Kent State on the Mediterranean*

Hamas benefits greatly from civilian casualties, which support its narrative of victimization and provide its supporters with fodder for “lawfare” against the IDF and diplomatic sanctions against Israel.

An Explosion of Jew-Hatred – or a Coup?

With the 2016 presidential campaign, it seems as though there has been an explosion of Jew-hatred. Is this true? Who is responsible?

How to REALLY End the Occupation

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

Rick Jacobs and his MLK Complex

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

The Truth is a Minority Opinion

A great, quick overview of the Jewish legal claim to Israel.

Conflict Roots Go Deep–Very Deep

Why do they hate us? It doesn’t matter. It’s not worth arguing about who started it and who’s right or wrong, except as an academic exercise. What is important is that the conflict is not amenable to the solutions being offered

Did Putin Pull Pittsburgh Trigger?

There is a serious effort being made by Russian actors to influence the social and political atmosphere in the US. The objective is to destabilize the country by encouraging extremism of both the Right and the Left, to exacerbate racial, religious, and class conflict, to stoke anger, increase polarization, encourage violence, and ultimately bring about the virtual or actual secession of segments of the population from the USA.

The Obama-Hezbollah-Iran crime family

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

Must all our Residents be Citizens?

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.
