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.
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.
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.
I am not embarrassed that we Arabs lost. We deserved to lose, and I cannot even think of the massacres that may have ensued if we won. I am embarrassed that we started the war in the first place.
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.
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
I am an Arab, lucky enough to be one of the few Arabs who live far enough, both physically and intellectually, from Arab thugs to be able to speak my mind. So I will speak my mind.
I oppose Jewish settlement building in the West Bank because Israel is allowing the settlements to be used as an excuse by corrupt Palestinian leaders to demonize Israel and to reject peace.
Lebanon’s friends are the type of friends who make you think that you don’t need enemies. Ironically, except for its "enemy" Israel.
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
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.
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%
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.
What makes someone an anti-Semite? Stupidity? Dark souls filled by all-consuming hatred? Probably a combination of both, but that doesn't matter because anti-Semites have and will always exist.
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
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 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.
Whatever the future holds, whether it is two states, three states, a single state, or a confederation of states, the futures of Israelis and Palestinians will be associated and interdependent
Instead of insisting on the failed and inane strategy of fighting Israel, the Arab world should realize that working with Israel is the answer.
ezbullah’s claim of defending Lebanon against Israel and their other claim of liberating Palestine are both bogus, simply excuses to allow them to dominate Lebanon with the support of Iran. So stop being a puppet, and be a leader!
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
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
Metal detectors are used in many places in the world, including airports of course, but also Muslim places of worship. So why the big deal at Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem?
Israel has absolutely no obligation to let BDS activists enter the country. There is no automatic right to enter any country that one wishes to enter. It is a privilege that must be earned.
The Israeli paradox is that while Israel is thriving as a nation, it has no way to achieve a permanent status as a state whose borders are internationally recognized. It is stuck in limbo.
