Student Union opens ‘hasbara’ room in effort to fill public diplomacy vacuum.
Did you hear what Obama is offering?
F-35 Stealth Bombers.
Are you serious?
Have you forgotten that Israel is under an existential threat, that our neighbors seek to destroy us?
Iran, of course.
What do you think, that Israel can do whatever it wants? We have international pressure. Luckily, the Americans still stand by our side.
They will stop selling us spare parts for the planes.
Yes. That is what the experts say. We have not bombed Iran because if we do, the Americans will not sell us the spare parts for their fighter jets.
Just a minute. Are you proposing that we throw all the American jets in the garbage?
And how will you fight, with sticks and stones?
Israel can produce a platform for a stealth bomber, together with the aeronautics industries of other nations that are eager for this type of partnership. Alternately, Israel can produce the platform itself, as it did with the Lavi project. What is certain is that the F-35 deal is leading us in the opposite direction: More dependence on American weapons is another obstacle in the face of Israeli weapons production, and most important of all another obstacle in the face of our ability to defend ourselves from the most serious existential threats that we face.

Our capital was not arbitrarily chosen, as capitals of some other nations were.
UNHRC High Commissioner Navi Pillay accuses the IDF of possible war crimes in Gaza again, cutting slack to Hamas.

Should Jews in Europe take more responsibility in self-defense of community and property?
Germany’s The Jewish Faith newspaper ominously noted, “We Jews are in for a war after the war.”
The truth is we seldom explore with kids what prayer is supposed to be about.
Almost as one, Jews around the world are acknowledging the day-to-day peril facing ordinary Jews in Israel and the extraordinary service of the IDF in protecting them.
So on the one hand Secretary Kerry makes no bones about who is at fault for the current hostilities: he clearly blames Hamas.
King Solomon said it long ago: “Cast your bread upon the waters” because you don’t know when you’ll hit something. Our job is to do.
The anti-Israel camp does not need to win America fully to its side. Merely to neutralize it would radically alter the balance of power and put Israel in great jeopardy.
We mourn the dead, wish a speedy recovery to the wounded, and pray that God guides the government.

For a rare moment – too rare – you taught us the true meaning of oneness.
Oneness at the front and oneness at home.
This is Stalin at his best, now implemented by Israel’s Ministry of Internal Security.
The right to defend oneself is a basic human right. But in Israel, it is not G-d Who gives him this basic human right to defend himself, but the State. And the State really does not want its citizens to bear arms.
And Shelly Dadon is not the first incident. Not even the second or third.
