Will My Muslim Brothers Condemn Hamas?

9 Kislev 5773 – November 23, 2012
If the targeting of innocent civilians by terrorist organizations is not wrong, then morality has no meaning.

War Is the Answer

9 Kislev 5773 – November 22, 2012
Hamas is not interested in being engaged. Its goal is the destruction of Israel.

Has Obama Decided to Get Rid of Jordan’s King Abdullah?

Unless the U.S. clarifies its position regarding King Abdullah and reiterates its full backing for his regime, the Muslim fundamentalists are likely to step up their efforts to create anarchy and lawlessness in the kingdom.

Air Raid Sirens Sound In Jerusalem

For probably the first time since the Yom Kippur War nearly 40 years ago, air raid sirens sounded this week in Jerusalem and environs. The sounding of the sirens occurred about two minutes after sundown on Friday, such that Sabbath-observers had no direct way of ascertaining where, what, how many, or who, if anyone, was hurt.

Baffled In Sderot

What is the solution to the constant missile attacks in southern Israel? Those with a solution are the people who warned against signing the Oslo Accords in the first place. These people continue to be sidelined. Clearly, the Oslo advocates have no intention of giving up the profits and perks of the “peace industry” that they have created.

Resisting War, Terrorism, And Genocide (Third of Three Parts)

For the most part, we Jews have always accepted the obligation to ward off disaster as best we can. For the most part, we generally understand that all humans have free will. Saadia Gaon included freedom of will among the most central teachings of Judaism, and Maimonides affirmed that all human beings must stand alone in the world “to know what is good and what is evil, with none to prevent him from either doing good or evil.”

The Gates of Jerusalem

7 Kislev 5773 – November 20, 2012
Israel is a sideline in a regional struggle by fractured populations who are divided by ethnicity and religion, language and natural resources, to unite into a single commonality.

An Arab View…

Scenes of jubilation over the rocket attacks on Israel were also reported in several Palestinian cities in the West Bank, including Ramallah, the center of Palestinian "pragmatism and moderation."

Incidentism

6 Kislev 5773 – November 19, 2012
Once upon a time it was the objective of the military to win wars. Now the objective of the military is to avoid incidents.

Jewish Values are the Salvation of the Republican Party

So long as we obsess over abortion, gay marriage, and contraception to the exclusion of any other values, we cannot fix our problems.

Daniel Pipes: Reflections on Current Hamas-Israel Hostilities

5 Kislev 5773 – November 18, 2012
If Hamas knows it cannot defeat the Israel Defense Forces and will get a bloody nose for its efforts, it obviously has motives other than victory in mind.

No Room for Moderate Palestinians

Obviously, the Palestinians have been radicalized to a point where they are not ready to hear about any concessions to Israel or tolerate the presence of an Israeli businessman in a Palestinian city.

A Moment of Truth in Israel

Not long after Qatar's leader paid a visit to Hamas, this latest war began.

Shabbat Chevron: On The Deepest Level

1 Kislev 5773 – November 14, 2012
On the Shabbat when we read the portion of Chayei Sarah, Chevron residents are joined by thousands of people from all over Israel and around the world in celebrating Father Abraham’s purchase of the Cave of Machpelah and its surrounding fields as a burial place for Sarah Imeinu.

Resisting War, Terrorism, And Genocide (Second of Three Parts)

Israel, with an understandable desperation, still seeks to discover some discernible correctness and reassuring clarity in the theatre of world politics. However, the polite diplomatic meanings with which it is pressed to "make peace" remain squalid and elusive. Ominously, these meanings continue to seethe menacingly.

Whose Watchdogs Are They?

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.

The Numbers Game

The key to winning the game is in the numbers. Demographics.

The City that has Problems with Synagogues

If only my city were to treat me with the same courtesy they accorded Kaddafi.
