Trump, King Darius, And Jerusalem

President Trump has not yet given his "permission" to build the Third Temple, but he seems to have gone a fair ways towards taking his place in Jewish history.

Hamas, Abandoned Bodies, And A Cynical Calculation

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.

INTO THE FRAY: Natalie Portman as a Symptom

Israel must convey a resolute message to arm-chair liberals who are staunchly prepared to defend their principles…down to the last Israeli

The “Great Myth of Return”

Pro-Palestinian organizations like Al Jazeera (Qatar) and Press TV (Iran) have produced videos related to the Gaza border protest regarding Palestinian rights, providing few actual facts, proving the claim of a Palestinian “Great March of Return” is a sham.

Just The Facts

Oslo, the "gift" that keeps on taking.

The Portman Factor

The actress’s snub isn’t a victory for BDS or the Israeli prime minister’s political foes, but it does show how Netanyahu’s image problem has undermined one of his strengths.

Taking On Netanyahu

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.

Stop Going To Poland

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.

70 Years of Miracles

The focus on Israel’s problems often obscures the astonishing nature of a historic turnabout for the Jewish people.

Three Ways that Obama Caused the Syrian Disaster

Syria is just the culmination of a series of bad decisions guided by a single disastrous philosophy.

INTO THE FRAY: Syria-Reaping Storm Obama Sowed

If surrendering US primacy in the region to Russia was the result of US passivity and inaction, the intrusion of Iran into Syria can very definitely be attributed to ill-conceived, active American policy.

INTO THE FRAY: Gaza-Collapse of “Land-for-Peace” Concept

Israel must convey that it will consider the continuation of the “March of Return” an overt act of war, and all the participants in it, enemy combatants—who must expect to face all the risks that entails.

Gaza and the Worthlessness of International Opinion

Even though the Palestinian “March of Return” was far from peaceful, Israel’s critics still absolve Hamas.

Israel Needs Capitalism, Not Socialism

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!

Demography as an Instrument of Opposition

Why is the Coordinator of Government Activities in Judea and Samaria publishing the Palestinian CBO’s distorted and tendentious data, which adds more than a million and a quarter people to Palestinian demographics?

Real Racism

If I knew some white guy who took his family over decades to an American church where the preacher railed weekly against African Americans using the “n” word, it would be reasonable to conclude he was a racist. It is not unreasonable for someone to draw the same conclusion regarding Obama and Corbyn considering the churches they attended and the Facebook groups they belonged to.

Palestinians: Why Hamas Will Not Disarm

Abbas is fortunate to have Israel sitting with him in the West Bank. Otherwise, Hamas would have succeeded in its effort to topple his regime and "transfer" its weapons to the West Bank.
