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
The purported “peace process” is nothing more than war, simply being fought with different methods. The result is success for the enemy and our loss of land, legitimacy and internal demoralization.
Is the Regulation Law an historical achievement? Or is it a farce? My head says it is a major achievement. My heart, however, is telling me just the opposite.
If Israel didn’t receive American aid, would it buy U.S. F-35 jets? Should it? This deal has given us an air force on a leash.
The storm brewing in Israel over its purchase of 3 German submarines is not about the subs at all. It is about the obsession to find a scandal – at any price – that will depose Netanyahu.
When I heard the crowd cheering for Trump's then-small victory, I sensed the beginning of a backlash against the post-modern identity grinder that we have been witnessing for the last three decades
Which candidate will be good for Israel, Trump or Clinton? Any president who meets an Israeli leadership that is good for Israel will also be good for Israel.
As opposed to other politicians, Netanyahu understands the real debate is not over the 1967 borders; not even over the 1948 Partition Plan borders. The real debate is over the Balfour Declaration
Shimon Peres symbolized something. He created a language and mentality that have determined the mindset and behavior of Israel and, in great measure, the entire Western world for the last 25 years.
When the Twin Towers collapsed on 9/11, the entire idea of the modern nation-state collapsed to the call of Allah Akbar emanating from the cockpit just a second before the impact that shook the world.
Both of them, former PM Ehud Barak and present PM Binyamin Netanyahu, are the greatest security catastrophes that Israel has ever known.
Register for a biometric passport? You mean let the government mark you like animals, store your personal information in a database that will be breached? The real issue at stake is personal liberty.
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.
The state’s ardor to limit the amount of licensed guns in public hands has nothing to do with protecting citizens, rather it stems from its natural will to amplify its power at the public's expense
Supposedly, the goal of the state of Israel is to achieve peace but “peace” cannot be the defined goal of a state. Peace is the result of the proper definition and achievement of a goal
The existing situation affords a huge advantage to the bad guys and encourages crime.
So what is Israel? A state with an army? Or an army with a state?
