Like Chavez, Obama presides over a poorer country whose poor are convinced that he is the only thing standing between them and absolute poverty.
Palestinian leaders have legitimized Israel to the point where it has become a "crime" for any Palestinian to be seen talking to, much less negotiating with any Israeli.
In order to emphasize the magnitude of the Holocaust and genocide, Director of the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology: Polish Academy of Sciences, Professor Henryk Domanski, created the Polish Center for Holocaust Research, on July 2 2003.
Abbas and Hamas have decided for now to lay their differences aside and work towards escalating tensions on the ground, particularly in Judea and Samaria.
Abbas called for hard labor/life imprisonment, or death for any Arab that sold land to a Jew.
Like Mel Gibson, Facebook denies it is in any way anti-Semitic. Maybe Mel should work for them?
"Israel does not interfere in Iran's internal affairs." That is more or less the reaction of Israeli officialdom to the unrest in Iran. Nobody questions this response. We have become accustomed to the fact that our response is not important. What does the oppression in China have to do with us? Why does the war in Chechnya concern us? Why is the slave trade in Sudan our business? And even more so, what does it matter what we think about Iran?
On IDF Refusals To Follow Orders: The Interlocking Perspectives Of National Law, International Law...
Here we go again. The more things change, the more they remain the same. Now it is Hebron, where a number of soldiers have correctly refused intrinsically wrongful orders to evict fellow Jews from their homes. Now it is Homesh, where authentic Jews labor industriously and heroically to remedy earlier IDF evictions.
This year's Priestly Blessing in Jerusalem drew thousands of Jews (and a few gentiles as well) to the Western Wall. Take a look at these pictures and maybe you too can partake of the Biblical blessings.
It is good to bring police brutality out in the open but has anyone heard media discussing the tens of youths who were tortured and never indicted over the supposed attack on Duma? Don’t the continued arsons in Duma demand the release of the detained youths?
Despite the talk of the unprecedentedly close intelligence and military cooperation between Israel and the US, a case could be made that the Obama administration is—intentionally or otherwise—laying the foundations for Israel’s demise.
Purim is major event throughout Poland. Many marginal Jews bring their whole families to the synagogue for the festive reading of the Megillah.
For Israel, the prime inheritor of Genesis, an expanding global chaos portends a very unusual, and also ironic, kind of fragility. A relentlessly beleaguered microstate, and always the individual Jew writ large, Israel could become the principal victim of international disorder. In view of the exceptionally far-reaching interrelatedness of all world politics, this could be true even if the actual precipitating events of war and terror would occur elsewhere.
I write this column with my bags packed. I’m lighting four candles in Israel and my fifth I will light Wednesday evening at about 9 p.m. in the lobby of the Avenue Plaza Hotel in Boro Park. I’ll have my guitar in hand, and everyone is invited.
While the American Democratic Party may not have an official anthem, the British Labour Party does.
One of the most elementary principles of law is known as Nullum Crimen Sine Poena: "No crime without a punishment." Stemming from at least three separate passages of the Torah (Exod. 21:22-25; Lev. 24:17-21; Deut. 19:19-21), the Lex Talionis or "law of exact retaliation" was absolutely integral to the Nuremberg Trial and judgment.
This summer, from June 23 to July 1, the city of Krakow will play host to the 17th annual Jewish Cultural Festival, which as usual, is expected to be a resounding success.
The Zehut political party offers what's absent from Israeli politics: Loyalty to our Jewish identity
Myrna Frankel was born and raised in New York City which, she feels, is such a fantastic place to live that she would still be there if Israel had not been beckoning to her all the days of her life.
Amazing how well the Arabs of the West Bank/Gaza are doing compared to Arabs in other countries
It's the PM’s job to protect his nation; It's the attorney general’s job to protect PM's policies
The State of Israel came into being on May 14, 1948. The five Arab armies of Egypt, Syria, Trans Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq immediately invaded the new microstate. Azzam Pasha, Secretary General of the Arab League, expressed their combined intention publicly: "This will be a war of extermination and a momentousmassacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades." In terms of international law, the Arab League thus spoke from the beginning in unhidden support of genocide. This is hardly surprising, especially in view of their candid and warm personalcooperation with Hitler and the Axis against the Allies in World War II.
Rabbi Porat oncesaid that his proudest parliamentary achievement was having sponsored and ensured the passage of a law entitled “Do Not Stand by Your Neighbor’s Blood”—rendering it a legal duty to offer assistance to someone in mortal danger. Based on a verse in Vayikra, Rabbi Porat’s law ensures that sanctity of life is a national value not only in word, but in deed.
