#1 on the Top 9 list for the 9 Days: 1) Say "yes" to living a meaningful Nine Days. Don’t be bitter, mad, and depressed. Don’t focus on the negative and how many hot dogs you could have consumed. These are very special days and you need to focus on the positive. Rad the remaining 8...
When Gazan Arabs prepare fire-balloons, our hairsplitting legal advisors prohibit the IDF from shooting at them so that no legal rule is undermined, Heaven forbid. But when it comes to the hilltop youth, then “the roof will fall on our heads” (Bennett) if we do not throw all their basic human rights and every possible law to the wind.
Only about 50 %of those eligible actually enlist in the IDF and less than 5% do reserve duty. The IDF may have been a people’s army and the melting pot in the first decades after Israel was established, but it does not reflect reality anymore.
Tackling the big issues: Who’s responsible For Netiv Ha’avot’s destruction ultimately?
When Israel recognized a foreign nation's supposed right to the land of Israel, it turned itself into a colonialist state and the terrorists who launch the rockets, mortars, and terror kites into freedom fighters.
A radically innovative approach to Israel's present military approach to Gaza and the Palestinians.
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?
We salute the IDF and Netanyahu for their decisive roles in the events of the past week. But we must embark upon a strategy of triumph. If we do not do so, President Trump will want to make "peace." Remember Oslo?
When Israel is attacked, the world forgives the attackers because, after all, what are we doing here in the first place? In order to win, we must possess a different kind of justification –one that relies on truth.
Regardless that the US withdrawal from the nuclear agreement was best thing that could have happened to Israel, we must stop passing the responsibility for our own defense.
The calculus of Israel's politicians today is that it is easier to deal with the pressure from the family of fallen soldier Hadar Goldin, and to hold out a bit longer until the next round of fighting than it is to confront Hamas.
Oslo, the "gift" that keeps on taking.
There are those who want to remain in servitude to Oslo, to the Left, or to Netanyahu – who gets votes by saying the Arabs are running to the polling booths… and then destroys Amona.
Visiting the places where the horrors were perpetrated certainly benefits our short-term memory of the Holocaust, but we disconnect from the fact that the people of the country we are visiting slaughtered our parents.
The Negev was not allocated for free to whoever was willing to build and farm them (as was the practice in the US and Australia). They were settled quite successfully, however – by the Bedouins, who do not understand how socialism works and simply took the land!
Zionism does not want the Old City of Jerusalem. Trump understands that and now we are beginning to hear hints of his Peace Plan. What does his plan include? The internationalization of Jerusalem--We get the embassy and we lose Jerusalem, G-d forbid. That is the danger.
Feiglin on some of Israel's hot-button topics
If Netanyahu’s name were Shimon Peres or Ehud Barak, none of these affairs would ever have been publicized or investigated. This is not about corruption. It’s about politics.
I think that Netanyahu should go home, but for the right reasons. Netanyahu should go home because he is a strategic danger to the state of Israel. He should not go home because of a political putsch by the Left.
Jews are commanded by the Torah not to deliver a slave into the hands of his owner, and a very small percentage of these people are, indeed, refugees. Though we are responsible for their lives, we do not have to keep them here forever and we do not have to grant them citizenship.
What will happen if the enemy captures one of these female combat soldiers, G-d forbid? Why can’t we take action to prevent these things from happening instead of reacting after they happen? Why do we have to live the most fearsome nightmares when they can so easily be avoided? Just because the politicians are embarrassed to tell the truth?
Moshe Feiglin, leader of the Zehut party, being his candid self.
It is good that the corruption in Netanyahu’s backyard is being investigated and it is good that the public doesn’t like it. However, the level of corruption is currently much lower than under previous PMs.
The same nations that condemn us daily in the UN and send money to Hamas and Hizbullah will one day run to Jerusalem to make peace with us.
What does Bibi Netanyahu mean when he says that "Jerusalem is the capital of Israel"? Trump was very clear what he meant, but I cannot figure out what Bibi means
