If Israel annexes the West Bank, the Jewish majority in Israel would be reduced immediately from 75% to about 57%, and the Arab minority in Israel would nearly double from 21% to about 40%
What is it about Jews that disturbs so much? What disturbs the world is that Jews are a minority that does not behave like a minority. Jews refuse to shut up, comply, and become invisible
It is not Israel that needs to change. It is not Israel that needs to be boycotted. It is the Arab world that needs to have a deep look at itself, how it behaves towards its own peoples and towards others, and how it needs to change.
Instead of insisting on the failed and inane strategy of fighting Israel, the Arab world should realize that working with Israel is the answer.
European leaders refuse to face the reality that the Palestinians are led by a charlatan and pretend that organizing a peace conference will deliver the ever elusive peace agreement
Ironically, the area where Christians and Muslims most need atonement and self-reflection is in the way that they have treated Jews over the centuries. Unfortunately, they lack a holiday like Yom Kippur
In the 69 years of this history, Israelis’ support for the two-state solution, however, has slowly eroded. The main reason is the realization that the Palestinians never wanted it and are not likely to ever want it.
Does Facebook forbids all hateful language? Far from it, unfortunately. While insulting someone that many consider an anti-Semite is unacceptable, Facebook chooses to allow widespread anti-Semitic speech.
While the Lebanese terrorists’ phenomenal arsenal pointed at Israel is indication enough, the whipping up of hatred may be an even stronger indication that Hezbullah is itching for another war with Israel
Arabs devote their energies to stifling human potential in their own ranks; Jews, on the other hand, devote their energies to building a nation and making it greater every day.
If Israel had done what was in all fairness its right to do, Muslims would not today have had to worry about going through metal detectors to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque. They would not have to worry because no Muslim would be allowed on that ground and Al-Aqsa would have been desecrated and dismantled.
As long as Palestinians are led by terrorists, reared to hate, and paid to be terrorists, the probability that peace will come from negotiations with the Palestinians is exactly zero
After 69 years of obstructionism, the Palestinian leadership no longer deserves a seat at the table. It is time for Israel to behave as the victor of the conflict, and to win the peace.
If Lebanon had prevented terrorist attacks against Israel, not one bullet would have been fired between the countries. Today, Lebanon would be enjoying the benefit of diplomatic relations with Israel
Jordan integrated some refugees. The Arabs showed the world, as they continue to do, that their hatred towards each other and towards Jews is far greater than any concept of purported Arab solidarity.
The enemies of Israel have failed to stop the rebirth of the nation of Israel on its own land, and they will continue to fail. They think that attacks weaken the Jewish people, but every attack – be it a war of annihilation or a terrorist attack – makes the Jewish people stronger and more united.
It is time to have left-wing parties that can eloquently, loudly, and proudly speak about the history of the Jewish people and about the many challenges that Israel has faced and continues to face.
My birth on the Arab side of the Israel-Arab conflict was not my choice, but my moral stand is my choice, and my choice is Israel.
Until Palestinian leadership accepts a Jewish state, there is no reasonable alternative to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank. Unconditionally leaving the West Bank into the hands of terrorists obsessed with killing Jews is not an option.
Palestinian deaths and injuries are the responsibility of Hamas that is cynically leading its own people to their deaths in an attempt to gain media sympathy, but they are also the responsibility of every world leader who has appeased the Arab leaders and refused to state the facts as they are.
If countries like Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and others cannot put aside their hatred of Israel, or any other country, at least for the duration of the Olympics, they should not be allowed to compete.
Considering that Israel has a consistent history of being extremely careful to avoid civilian casualties, a friend such as Canada would be expected to give Israel the benefit of the doubt, and not to make unproven accusations.
Edy Cohen, was not born in Israel. He is a refugee from Lebanon. Unlike many refugees, he is not waiting for handouts or international sympathy. He has made a life for himself in Israel and advocates for Jewish refugees from Arab lands.
While the Palestinian cause, sadly, is still today dominated by non-Palestinians, the Zionist movement has benefited from being driven by Jews and not by foreign parties and it must remain this way.
Israeli Arabs are noy affected negatively by the new law
