Your Gaza Conflict Quiz

I dare you to answer these 15 questions about Israel’s ongoing conflict with Hamas in Gaza without cracking a bitter smile and heaving a sigh of cynical disbelief.

Israel’s Cognitive Dissonance About Death Penalty

Why a country that never enforces the death penalty is considering a law to make it easier to execute terrorists.


After weeks of sending masses of civilians into direct confrontation with Israel – including women children, even babies – to act as a buffer between its operatives trying to infiltrate the border, Hamas has resorted to previous tactics of firing directly on residents on the Gaza border

Distracted Obsessions of Progressive American Jews

Progressive American Jews accuse =Trump of sowing social division, hatred and anti-Semitism. They can’t see that that they are themselves effectively enabling social division, hatred and anti-Semitism by their spurious equivalence, tunnel vision and outright double standards.

Looking at Gaza Through Swedish Glasses

According to Sweden, Palestinians are protesting peacefully, so by definition, Israel is using disproportionate force

Ticking Time Bomb of Islamic Jew-hatred in the USA

When Imams in mosques in North Carolina, New Jersey, Texas and California called for the killing of Jews, American organizations were quiet. No one protested or called on President Trump to confront Muslim supremacy.

NY Times, a False Equivalence Between Hamas and Israeli Rockets

Unlike Israel, Hamas is targeting civilians, its imprecise crosshairs covering entire towns. Israel, in response, has targeted the military and information assets of the terror group. So yes, Gaza’s civilians are “caught up” in the fighting around them. Israeli civilians, though, are targets of that fighting.

The Tragedy That is Gaza

In the 13 years since Israel left, the focus of the Arabs in Gaza has never been about the future or about building a better life. It’s never been about helping their people. It’s been all about destroying Israel.

Is the Situation with Gaza ‘the problem from Hell?’

“There is a fatigue with Gaza; they’ve tried everything,” said Jonathan Schanzer at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, referring to Israel’s government. “Overwhelming force, negotiations, working with Egypt ... none of these things are working.”

Shift or Strategy? US votes ‘NO’ on UN Resolution Censuring Israeli Control over Golan...

The decision by the United States to change its stance on the resolution, after previously voting for years to abstain, may be part of a broader shift in American policy towards the Golan Heights.

INTO THE FRAY: Israel’s Stark Option: Arabs in Gaza or Jews in the Negev

the failed formula of self-rule for Gaza must be set aside—since any obstinate insistence on it will only continue to exacerbate the current situation and extend the misery it precipitates—for Arab and Jew alike.

Self-Love – Why We Don’t Need More Of It

We feel dissatisfied, depressed, or despondent. We then openly display our frustration and malaise to those near and dear to us despite the great discomfort it causes them. What is regarded as self-loathing is therefore usually nothing but self-love in disguise.

The Bravery of “M” and the Duplicity of Shelly Yachimovich

I ask you to remember that Shelly Yachimovich endangered IDF soldiers, the Jewish State, and Officer “M”’s bereaved family in a horrible tweet filled with outright lies, for the sake of political capital.

The ADL Is Wrong: Solidarity Is Not Bigotry

These ostensible Jewish leaders are inadvertently recycling an anti-Semitic canard and applying it to their Christian neighbors. If Jews want members of other faiths to respect their desire to be separate, they should offer the same courtesy to their neighbors.

The Israeli Security Concept: Wandering Through a Maze

The recent round of fighting between Israel and Hamas was seemingly sparked by the exposure of an Israeli special forces team during a covert operation in Khan Yunis. The Hamas leadership, which apparently is not interested in war, nevertheless chose to respond by escalating to the very brink. Why has the Israeli government refrained (yet again) from instructing the IDF to settle conclusively the Hamas threat?

If Gender Isn’t Fixed, Why Is Age?

Numbers don't lie--some people do, about age and/or GENDER

Praising Netanyahu’s Caution

The prime minister’s refusal to seek a final reckoning with Hamas generated criticism. But his decision to avoid war was sound policy.

Why All The Drama?

Can it really be contended that there cannot be honest, unfavorable opinion about Mr. Mueller’s work, only biased ones?

Tsunami of Self-Immolation

The Reform, Conservative and Reconstructionist movements have, in the last 30 years, rapidly devolved away from being rejectionists of traditional Judaism. These movements have now embraced a new religion with gusto. That religion is commonly called liberalism.

Post mid-term Election US National Security Policy

President Trump is not expected to pursue an isolationist policy. Instead, he will persist in a unilateral – rather than multilateral – diplomatic, economic and military policy, where US national security interests supersede counter-productive and hostile interests set by international and multilateral organizations

Manuel L. Quezon, President Of The Philippines, Rescuer Of Jews

During the Battle of Manila, my parents hid with me and several others in a foxhole while the Japanese went on a massacre and burned everything in sight.
