The Torah grants us the obligation to preserve life. The gun is merely a tool to deal with the cruel. Attempts to remove guns from the hands of decent people, ensures more dead Jews. In the case of self-preservation, and the preservation of Jews, the Torah’s answer to anti-Semites with guns, is better guns, better training, and the preemptive ability to put one in a Jew-hater’s lung before he takes another breathe.
We hear how Arabs and Jews meet and greet and drink coffee. As I’ve noted before, the Jews of Hebron in 1929 also would have sworn that they had coexistence. Some of them also shared Turkish coffee with their Arab neighbors. And yet, their neighbors butchered them in 1929--and they did so again this past Sunday in the Barkan industrial zone.
The hasbara mafia requires token gentiles to defend and define us. Some with the most unscrupulous backgrounds.
It is not easy to be a Ben Noach. The Seven Laws (even more according to many rabbinic decisors) represent categories that encompass subcategories, and the penalties for abrogation of this covenant are stricter than they would be for a Jew who abrogates them
Point/counter-point on the serious issue of missionaries in Israel, most notably the Waller family and its organization, Hayovel.
The Jewish supporters of the evangelical labor force of Hayovel speak of these people as Christian friends. These deceitful duplicitous types are not our friends. Far from it.
In response to the Halamish slaughter, we hear the same cliched responses. What we don’t hear is any common sense. Basic truths that need to be screamed louder than any call to prayer from a brazen Arab muezzin.
I say, go back to America and your Reform platform. The Western Wall is not your personal laboratory for liberal social experimentation
Men such as my grandfather are the equivalent of foundation stone. The world exists because of such people. When they are gone, our job is to appreciate their legacy and to share some of their essence
The new peaceniks delusion: Jewish Israelis should abandon our “white, western, identify” and identify with a greater “Semitic” sense of self and this will lead to peace with our murderous neighbors
The incident in Karnei Shomron should be a warning. Security personnel tasked with protecting a community shirked their duty in the face of Arab terror. Be alert!
Even if Elor Azaria is pardoned, the shame of the verdict, of the Bolshevik investigation and kangaroo court which tarred and feathered him from day one, these will never be erased.
Leftist Jews in Israel are incensed by Jews building homes in liberated YESHA yet indifferent to Islamic provocation by blasting their call to prayer over loudspeakers assaulting Jews in the process
Each month, we are forced to endure orchestrated, deliberate stunts from the angry shrill feminists of the “Women of the Wall” who seek to alter traditional religious customs of prayer at the Kotel
Trump’s victory offers the US a legitimate chance to right a sinking ship, and turn back the clock on Obama’s 8-years of Bolshevism. If nothing else, Trump’s victory means that Hillary isn’t president
As Jews we differ from "Indigenous peoples" because our conquests of Eretz Yisrael were Divine mandated and that is our sole, and unbeatable, claim to Israel.
Amalek is not some antiquated notion of a long gone brutal enemy. Amalek exists today, as the Torah states, Amalek exists in every generation. The pressing question is evident: Who is Amalek?
Today, missionary groups operating in Israel are ambitious, clever, and well-organized, and they are aided by religious Jews (for reasons of naiveté, ambition, etc.) who unlocked many doors for them.
In yet another example of clichéd foolishness running amuck, the Jewish indigenous rights organization LAVI is now calling for Jews to support the racist “Black Lives Matter” movement.
We need more of the teachings of torat Moshe Rabbeinu, and less of the arrogance of Moshe Dayan; More of the glory of King David and less of David Ben Gurion’s 'Ghandi-esque' restraint.
How naked is the double standard-the Clintons beat the most egregious scandals when the common man would be incarcerated for life? Hillary should get a ball and chain, NOT the Oval Office.
Now is a time for intellectual zealousness for Hashem. Men of Torah need to face the new heresies and radical innovations, and intellectually combat the religious proponents of these foreign notions.
Jews who turn to Esau to fight Ishmael, has simply exchanged the armed crusader for the olive branch of evangelism. This is no victory for the Jews.
There is a peculiar camp of Jewish activists today who naively believe they can have a Greater-Israel the land and appease the Arabs. They are both foolish and dangerous.
The haunting sirens of this season do indeed resonate with me, and I have no cynicism for the custom, only for the failure of leadership to learn the lessons.
