Does Russia Have its Eye on Strategic Cyprus?

Russia's strategic geopolitical interests provide an important incentive for Russia to gain a foothold in Cyprus.

INTO THE FRAY: The Taylor Force Act – Putting “Palestine” in perspective

The Palestinian population is not some hapless victim of the terror groups but the very crucible from which they emerged

Time Of Our Redemption

We are bombarded by constant distraction. This, I believe, is a tactic of our yetzer hora, the evil inclination, which tries to take us away from a clear view of reality by assailing our minds with a constant fine spray of distraction from every angle, much of it in the guise of “im-portant things to deal with.”

U.S. Leaves Door Open For Internationalizing Jerusalem

Full gas in neutral. With nearly built-in enmity on the part of the U.S. to the most basic Israeli positions regarding Jerusalem, it is no wonder our efforts to keep Jerusalem continue to run up against so many obstacles.

2014: The Year of the Non-Existent Product

Knowledge is primary, while the physical manifestation of a thought might not need to happen the thought to be meaningful.

Kerry Runs Around in Rings

The PA will keep doing stalling tactics and come up with new preconditions that it hopes Israel will not meet.

Rabbi Abraham B. Hecht, ZT”L

We join with Klal Yisrael in mourning the passing of Rabbi Abraham B. Hecht.

It’s On! Major Media Assaulting Netanyahu’s Iran Option

When the AP headline is as expressive as "Despite swagger, Israelis feeling vulnerable," you can hear the still reverberating echoes of the late night editorial meeting with those urgent orders to start chipping at Netanyahu's resistance.

Humility Is Not Weakness

Torah teaches us not to attribute our success to our own strength. The innocent and the arrogant believe in themselves. The wise and the holy believe in God.

Kaddish For Mr. Mlodnicki

We just observed Tisha B’Av, the day we mourn the destruction of our Holy Temple. With the Holocaust being so recent and such an enormity, I could not help but turn my attention to it as I contemplated the destruction that has befallen the Jewish people over the millennia. In particular, I thought about what happened to my father-in-law on that day many years ago, as well as the events leading up to it. Its message is timeless.

From Blood Libel to Tree Libel: JNF Responds to NYTimes OpEd

Nicholas Kristof's uncritical repetition of BDS diatribes against Israel and JNF raises red flags.

Religious Women Should Consider the Draft – They Aren’t So Fragile

Despite what some rabbis would tell you, there is no halachic law against women serving in the army.

The Iran Deal: Bad For America And Israel

The Senate failed to block the Iran nuclear agreement, a deal which is bad for the US and Israel.

Rubin Reports: Mitt Romney Captures Jerusalem

Speaking to an often-cheering group of about 400 people in Jerusalem, Governor Mitt Romney gave a speech less notable for what he said than for the fact that the audience believed he was sincere in saying it.

The Torah Revolution: Looking at the World; Doing the Opposite

Combating Amalek doesn’t mean all who disagree with you is evil-rather whom to follow and to oppose

Denying The Deniers

Though the school district eventually pulled the assignment after coming under pressure, the fact that an American school would ask its students to debate whether the Holocaust was “merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain” is both astounding and frightening.

“Oudist on the Roof”

"If I were a Shaheed, yababa-deidledie, all day long I'd detonate for fun, if I were a Shaheed guy"

They Say It’s Genocide – Now What Are They Going To Do About It?

The US FINALLY acknowledged ISIS is committing genocide. Now what will this administration do about it?

Why didn’t they leave the platform alone?

The interesting question is “why did they change it?” A platform is not a binding document; it is intended as a general statement of a party or candidate’s positions. Its planks are generally written to appeal the broadest possible constituencies. Most voters never read platforms or care about them. Is the change is intended to send a message to the leadership of the Muslim nations that Obama has been courting since his 2009 speech in Cairo that he is taking concrete steps to weaken the bond between the U.S. and Israel?

What A Surprise! Diplomatic Sanctions Won’t Work For Iran

One would think, certainly by now, that foolish optimism about Iran should have been swept completely away. One would now assume, with altogether good reason, that Iran has absolutely no intention of abandoning its nuclear program, and that it does not display markedly genocidal stripes only for Islamic public consumption.

Reflections On Rav Svei

Although he was gravely ill for years and could no longer fulfill his leadership responsibilities, Rabbi Elya Svei, zt”l, continued to influence many of us who are involved in Torah education, whether as principals or teachers or lay leaders.

How Pro-Israel Is Obama?

For the past two years the hottest debate in the pro-Israel community has been over how to assess the Obama administration. Despite the tense relationship with the Israeli government, the fights picked over building in Jerusalem and the pressure for a settlement freeze, there has been a considerable body of opinion that still insisted Obama had basically changed nothing in the Israel-U.S. relationship.

Obama’s Attempts At Making Nice With The Mullahs

It turns out that soon after taking office, President Obama tried to make friends – totally – with the mullahs’ regime in Iran.
