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.
There is no overall solution to Israel's media problem, but there are things that Israel could do...
Why do so many Jews barely notice Shavuot? What does this say about us as a people? What does this say about our future? Could we be ignoring this holiday because of what it teaches us?!
We need to consider what the Iranians and Arabs actually saw on both sides of the split screen.
Kind, caring people, genuinely concerned people keep saying to me , Stay Safe!" Why do I find this so annoying?
What is Israel supposed to do? Bring their own slingshots and Molotov cocktails?! Of course they are going to protect themselves and the rest of Israel in the most efficient way possible. All while respecting human life.
Only Republicans decided to attend the embassy opening in Jerusalem. Another surprise when one considers American Jews blind loyalty to the Democratic Party.
Many ambassadors of European nations who oppose the move will skip it, including our ‘allies,” including those from the UK, France, and Germany. That’s not all, according to Axios, our EU ‘buddies’ tried to pass a resolution that would embarrass Pres. Trump for moving the U.S. embassy:
The embassy move is important. It is an end to ambivalence, a declaration of understanding that the Jewish people have always been connected to Zion and will never leave. It is up to the rest of the nations of the earth to make the same decision and officially give up the secret, or not so secret hope, that the Jewish people will somehow disappear.
Our roots are the key to our future. It is our connection to our past that enabled us to recognize that our return is not just a mere product historical outcomes, but rather a Divine decree now being carried out in reality.
As Hashem is “jubilating” over Yerushalayim “with song”- we must emulate His happiness and join Him in song and jubilation on this historic day.
As we remember Yom Yerushalayim, Jerusalem Day, it is important to remember that the city is united and free because diplomacy failed. The greatest triumph of the modern state happened only because diplomacy proved hopeless and useless in deterring Muslim genocidal ambitions.
Davka, the timing of Eurovision this year is so siyata d'Shmaya, Hand of Gd. We in Israel are celebrating seventy 70 years of Independence and a half a century of our miraculous 1967 Six Days War victory which left us with all of Jerusalem in our hands.
“Thousands of generations I dreamt of you, to be granted to see the light of your face, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Shine your face to your sons! From your ruins, I will build you!”
As long as we remember all Jerusalem stands for, we will carry her in our hearts and in our minds wherever we go, wherever we are
Today is Yom Yerushalayim, Jerusalem Day when supporters of Israel celebrate the day during the 6-Day-War when Israel reunited the holy city of Jerusalem, and for the first time in almost 20 years Jews had access to the holy sites in East Jerusalem. For me, the holiday is a split decision. I am ecstatic that Jerusalem is united, but I am saddened that I am celebrating the day here in my home office rather than in Jerusalem.
While I know that God is everywhere, for some reason only a Rabbi can explain, his presence much stronger in Jerusalem and even stronger near the Temple Mount. My proof.
Exciting time in Israel. For a quick overview of the week that was and the week that will be...
Despite issues and complaints with Netanyahu, who would you actually trust to replace Bibi in running Israel at this turbulent time?
If one wanted to understand the just how mixed-up left-wing Jews really are, this article illustrates a perfect example.
The IDF will now act completely unrestrained in order to remove the Iranian military threat from Syria.
“It would be a shame to have so many CDs go to waste. My children’s preschool can only use so many of the things in crafts projects.”
A belated Happy 70th Birthday to Israel.
Kerry has met twice in the last two months with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to discuss ways to save the deal Iran had broken from the very first day.
In 1921 Great Britain handed the Hashemite Abdullah a very large portion of Mandated Palestine to invent a kingdom for him, all of the land east of the Jordan River. It became known as the Emirate of Transjordan. The "minor" fact that Britain had been mandated by the League of Nations to facilitate the establishment of a Jewish state was ignored.
