The Never-Ending Struggle for Jerusalem

What exactly does MK Hanegbi mean when he says "no division of Jerusalem?"

Mayor’s Election Promo Omits United Jerusalem

While Lyon is backed by the haredi parties, Barkat has been endorsed by leading religious-Zionist rabbis.

PA Aghast at Israeli Maps with Jerusalem as Capital

The Israeli curriculum is also offensive, according to Ma'an, because it actually dares to refer to Israel as a bastion of human rights and democracy.

Peace Talks: One Word Explains All

If peace talks are such a good thing, why is there so much pessimism regarding the chances of success for the Israel-PA talks? This is not a rhetorical question; it has a very concrete, specific, one-word answer: Incitement.

Release of Murderers Leads To Important Consolation Prize

Yes, Israel made a sickening decision to release high-profile terrorist murderers in exchange for the PA's consent to sit at a table and insist that Israel's generous concessions do not suffice. However, it seems to have come together with a consolation prize of sorts: The announcement by Housing Minister Uri Ariel of tenders for the construction of nearly 400 new housing units in Judea and Samaria, and another close to 800 in three of Jerusalem's post-'67 neighborhoods.

The name of the diplomatic game over the past few weeks seems to have been "Bear Down on Israel." The pressure has come in many forms:

Dividing Jerusalem: Simply Dangerous

How many times does PA chieftain Mahmoud Abbas have to repeat that the Israelis are planning to rebuild the Holy Temple atop the most volatile spot in the world before the world begins to accept it as true?

Ancient Temple Site: Center Of Prayers And Incitement

What could be more natural for a column dealing with Jerusalem than to pay special interest to the Temple Mount, the site of the Beit HaMikdash and the very center of the world? Especially given the distinct impression that throughout Israel, interest in this holiest spot has been swelling notably?

The Housing Freeze: What Netanyahu Should Tell Kerry

When we talk about developing Jerusalem and ensuring that it remains united under Jewish sovereignty, what could be more critical than actually building Jewish housing? Yet it is an open secret that the Netanyahu government has been waging a long-running general construction freeze in the Jewish areas of Judea and Samaria (Yesha), as well as in the liberated areas of Yerushalayim.

Regards From ‘Down Under’ – And What The PA Really Wants

It's only natural to see increasing evidence of Jerusalem's glorious Jewish past being unearthed, quite literally, under modern Israeli sovereignty. The new archaeological finds are also very timely – as the Arab onslaught attempting to detach Jerusalem from its Jewish roots gains steam, the facts on the ground, or "under" the ground, show quite otherwise.

Jerusalem Landfill Plan Shelved

A zoning plan that would have enabled the creation of critical Arab facts-on-the-ground in a strategically vital area of Jerusalem has been shelved thanks to efforts by several Zionist organizations.

Canadian Ministerial Visit to Jerusalem: A Geneva Convention Lesson

Rather than ask why Minister Baird met with Minister Livny in the eastern Jerusalem office, why not ask why Minister Livny agreed to meet there with Minister Baird?

Kerry, UN Bias, and a Hamas Cell

Israel, for its part, knows that developing E-1 is critical for its own existence.

Temple Mount: Test Of Israeli Sovereignty

One doesn't have to be a Temple Mount loyalist to realize that something not good for the Jews is happening in the world's holiest spot – under Israeli sovereignty.

Would PA Allow Jews in Jerusalem?

We must remember, too, that Abbas has said no Jews would be allowed to live anywhere in a Palestinian state.

New Jewish Construction Freeze Feared

It appears that when the dust settles after Obama's upcoming visit, Israel's housing market is very likely to take a big hit - in the form of a construction freeze.

Whose Jerusalem?

Nearly eighty percent of Americans believe the Bible is either absolutely accurate or at least the "inspired word of God," surveys have shown. Around the world, Christianity and Islam comprise an estimated eighty-four percent of the world's population – demonstrating that the Bible clearly has an extraordinary influence over humanity. It is puzzling, then, that the concept of "exclusive Jewish rights" to Jerusalem has not yet caught on internationally.

Interpreting the Signs in Northern Jerusalem

Amid an intense Israeli election campaign in which "keeping Jerusalem united" figured prominent as a key issue, the question continues to crop up: Is Jerusalem already being divided?

Haaretz Claims Right-Wing Voters Support Division Of Jerusalem

We came across this startling headline in Haaretz:"Most Right-Wing Voters Support Establishment of Palestinian State and Division of Jerusalem." But Haaretz, as dovish and radical as it is, surely wouldn't lie straight out, would they? So how did they come up with such a headline?

World Barks As ‘Building Jerusalem’ Caravan Moves On

With the international community barely having finished expressing its outrage over Israel's decision to build in E-1, between Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim (reported at length in last week's column), two other similar decisions have been made that are sure to re-ignite the flames.
