True peace with Israel’s enemies is not a territorial issue. It's deeper than that. If we fail to connect to our identity, they will continue to see us as a foreign entity in the Land. Justifiably so.
Yehudit Dasberg was one of the first victims of Oslo. Her daughter and son-in-law were murdered in a drive-by shooting near Gush Etzion.
Nobody really expected Israel to react to the Katyusha rockets launched from southern Lebanon that hit the northern Israeli town of Shelomi (on the morning of Jan. 8, 2008).
the Six-Day War became the war that military experts cannot logically explain. I call it “The War of Miracles.”
Whenever Hews have the opportunity to return and dwell in the Land of Israel, and do not, catastrophe follows.
The new agreement reached between Israel’s government and Women of the Wall does not achieve an arrangement. On the contrary, it will only create a new battle arena.
“Hey, Little Red Riding Hood, what is that dome on your head?” “Grandma-tech knitted it for me out of steel wool,” Little Red Riding Hood proudly answered. “Nice, isn’t it?” “Sure, it’s nice,” answered the wolf, licking his lips. “It fits you very well. But why is it made out of steel wool?”
Bennet could have threatened to topple the government unless a bill to save Amona and the threat of destruction lifted. But political self-sacrifice is non-existent when it comes to the Land of Israel
Now that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's doctors did not significantly stall the police investigation into his highly suspect activities, we must brace ourselves for the prime minister's next delaying gimmick.
The 2013 Israeli elections were supposed to have been boring. The pundits promised that the final result is already clear and there is nothing new under the sun. However, with less than two weeks to go until the polls open, we are in the throes of one of the most fascinating election campaigns that Israel has known. It is a campaign that faithfully reflects the deep currents of change in Israeli society. Nobody can yet predict its final outcome.
It is morning and my car glides down the mountains of the Shomron into the smog of greater Tel Aviv. Another crazy day of running in the primaries is about to begin. My cell phone rings. A young, determined voice is on the other end.
Who caused Israel's housing shortage? The Left. That sounds demagogic, but here's the reason why:
If the protection money paid to Gaza--to the tune of 1billion NIS annually--does not prevent Jewish fatalities – which have increased 5x since the Oslo peace accords broke out and Israel retreated from Gaza – why does Israel continue to pay these huge sums of money to our sworn enemies?
Israel recognizes the fabrication called a Palestinian nation; So what do we want from the Swedes?
There is something deeper that makes us partially responsible for what happened in Pittsburgh. Jewish history is being written today in the Land of Israel, and when Israel is sure of itself – when it strikes its enemies as it did in the Six-Day War or eliminates hijackers as it did in Entebbe – the level of anti-Semitism around the world decreases!
A memory that is relegated to a museum, no matter how tangible it is – even if it is Auschwitz itself – becomes a museum memory.
"We dreamed that the new state would be a place in which the next chapter of the Bible would be written as a prelude to world-wide redemption. After all, you are the Treasured Nation. We had great expectations. But now look at what you have done."
The simple conclusion from the Right’s recent failure to pass the Regulation Law, intended to protect Jewish homes from being uprooted in Judea and Samaria, is that the fateful, strategic decisions are determined by one man: the prime minister.
The state must not interfere in private lives and values of its citizens, except in extreme cases
“This area is under Muslim sovereignty,” the senior officer on the Temple Mount said to me. “I thought that we were in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel,” I answered, as I set out on a series of letter-writing campaigns and meetings with the chief of Israel police, the attorney general and the minister for internal security.
Can it be that in the State of Israel people can be arrested without cause? It happened in Duma case
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.
All the tactical problems have solutions. The real problem is not with the enemy; it is with us.
The real question is not why Lot returned to Sodom, but why Avraham endangered his entire historic mission to save him. The answer: Avraham did not only go to war to save Lot; he also went to SAVE his mission which Lot’s capture placed in jeopardy.
The way to 'end' the Six-Day War is to annex all the territory won. It is possible. There really is no demographic problem and there is no problem with international relations. The entire problem is in our heads.
