Why should the Rabbinate be involved in conversion? Because of the Law of Return, the foundation upon which the State was established. It is impossible to circumvent the interface between the determination of religion by an official religious body and Israeli citizenship
“Your problem,” I said to to the Arab MK, “is that the Israeli Left has convinced you that this is not a Jewish state, but rather a state of all its citizens. And then in your naiveté, you were convinced that this is a state with no identity..."
The slippery slope of government micromanaging lives inevitably leads to tragedy and oppression
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?
the Six-Day War became the war that military experts cannot logically explain. I call it “The War of Miracles.”
Isn’t Memorial Day supposed to be a day of remembrance, mourning, and reflection? A day to pay tribute to the hundreds of thousands of brave men and women who lost their lives fighting for America?
By not allowing Trump to move the embassy, Netanyahu let the Oslo genie back out of the bottle and he will not be able to control it….
Numerous times we explained that not only wouldn’t Trump move the embassy, but that it would be Netanyahu who would quash the move. That is exactly what appears to have happened.
Allowing Jordan virtual sovereignty of the Temple Mount, the heart of Jerusalem and of the Jewish nation, how can we find fault with the UNESCO vote on Jerusalem?
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.
No sports coach thinks of including women in Israel’s national soccer team because coaches want to win. But when the IDF integrates women into combat units that require rough, demanding physical activity – much more than required for soccer – it doesn't seem the IDF is thinking about is winning.
The application of “coincidence” and the falsity that everyone is essentially a victim is the most sophisticated and dangerous Holocaust denial that exists.

Israel’s lawmakers built a biometric database that no other free country dares propose to its citizens. It is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist and will become a severe security problem when hacked
From the Zehut Party platform preamble: "We want a State of liberty, run in accordance with Jewish culture and morality, and striving for the vision embodied in them."
Several times Israel has been burnt by Likud,leaders starting with Begin and the Sinai, continuing with Sharon and the Disengagement.Netanyahu himself has already agreed in the past to land retreats
What is needed is an alternative to this purposeless Right. If the most Right government there is, can't prevent an awful destruction like Amona, maybe it's really preferable to be in the opposition.
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
The Right, currently celebrating the passing of 'historic' the Regulation Law, will discover 2 things: First, Israel's High Court will nullify it Second, in the world's eyes, we remain 'colonialists'
There is a direct connection between the abandonment of the Temple Mount and the deterioration of the legitimacy of the very existence of a Jewish State anywhere in the Land of Israel.
Where there is no fear of G-d, there is murder. Fear of Heaven is the cure for all the shocking murders that plague us.
What may topple Israel's extremely talented Prime Minister is not his cigars, but the feeling of aimlessness – the lack of direction, message, and purpose – that engulfs the Israeli public.
Once again, mistakenly, Netanyahu is attempting to maintain his famous “wait it out” policy and has transferred responsibility to the new Trump administration.
At the start of the Syrian conflict, the most logical and appropriate action would have been Israel, the strong, local superpower, intervening to prevent the calamity-Israel didn't adopt this strategy
