While NFL players are running away from their country and refusing to stand during the national anthem, Israel’s professional athletes are doing the complete opposite! They are connecting to their nation and showing just how proud they are to be Jewish.
Trump should proclaim that unless Israel’s adversaries are ready to cease their incitement and condemn terrorism, the U.S. will no longer tolerate those who pay lip service to peace while encouraging and financing mass murder.
In essence the Israeli position is, and has long been, that Hamas cannot be accepted at the table unless it has renounced violence, recognized the state of Israel, accepted previous agreements between Israel and the Palestinians, and is now committed to peaceful negotiations to resolve the conflict.
The flight represented the remarkable diversity of the Jewish people, united by a common thread: each passenger was fulfilling a dream to live in Eretz Yisrael and contribute to its culture and its burgeoning economy.
The hysteria, and evident delusion, over the perceived sudden resurgence of fascism and the subsequent demonization of anyone who expresses conservative thought, supports Trump, or refuses to cave to the thrall of identity politics and political correctness on campuses, has given campus activists a new and potent tool in their campaign against any ideas they do not like –meaning, of course, any ideas that challenge their preconceived and leftist notions.

Question: A while back I wronged someone. When I realized my error and the pain it caused, I made restitution and also offered a sincere apology. While the restitution was accepted, the party still continues to bear a grudge even though I have made repeated entreaties to him. I am sure that if the situation were reversed, the individual would expect me to forgive him. Is it possible for you to discuss the concept of “loving your fellow man as yourself”? I am sure it will be helpful to me and many other readers.
