In 1982, the late Rabbi Meir Kahane wrote in The New York Times, ?There is one sublime reason why we should not give up a centimeter of land: it belongs to us! … the land belongs to us because the G-d of Israel, Creator and Titleholder of all lands, gave it to us.?
Rabbi Kahane went on to explain that there is no such thing as the ?Palestinian people.? He wrote, ?They are Arabs, part of the Arab nation, possessors of 21 lands. Let them live in peace in any or all of them. But there are no 'Palestinians.?
?The Roman emperor Hadrian, who, after the Jewish revolt against the Romans, angrily erased the name of the state, Judea, invented the name ?Palestine? after the Philistines. In every normal case, an existing people gives its name to a land. The Franks named their land France and the Angles, England, and the Germanics, Germany. Only in this ludicrous case does a Roman invent a name, give it to a land, and the arriving Arab trespassers become ?Palestinians.??
Commenting on how many Arabs have been killed in the conflagration between the Arabs and the Jews, Kahane wrote, ?I wonder how many mourned and protested the killing of German civilians during the World War II bombings of Berlin, Hamburg, and Dresden…?
Kahane?s article dealt with guilt. ?Guilt is a powerful weapon,? he wrote, ?Jews have a difficult time coping with it. A people that has been most debased as losers for 2,000 years finds it difficult to cope with victory… It begins to believe its enemies? slanders. It loses its self-respect and longs for the love of a hating world. It is important that those who have retained their self-esteem and sense of Jewish survival speak out against the disease of guilt and moral insecurity.?
Kahane pointed out that the Arabs are not killing Jews because of land. He wrote, ?Arabs are determined to kill Jews. … And what did they (the Arabs) wish in 1947 when they rejected the 'Palestine? state offered them by the United Nations and went to war, killing fully one percent of the population? And what did they wish in the riots of 1936-38 when there was no country called Israel and they murdered 500 Jews? And in 1929, when no 'Zionist occupation troops? were in Hebron, why did the Palestinians rise up to murder 67 Jews in one day? And why the pogroms in Jerusalem and Jaffa in 1920 and 1921??
Kahane?s voice from the grave reminds us that appeasement has never worked for Jews. When will Rabin and Peres understand this?

ZIM Piraeus isn’t Israeli-owned or flagged, incidentally, it is Greek operated.
Foolish me, thinking the goals were the destruction of Hamas thereby giving peace a real chance.
The free-spirted lifestyle didn’t hold your interest; the needs of your people did.
Several years ago the city concluded that the metzitzah b’peh procedure created unacceptable risks for newborns in terms of the transmission of neo-natal herpes through contact with a mohel carrying the herpes virus.
The world wars caused unimaginable anguish for the Jews but God also scripted a great glory for our people.
Judging by history, every time Hamas rebuilds their infrastructure, they are stronger than before.
His father asked him to read Psalms from the Book of Tehilim every day.
(Reposted with permission from author’s website) Moderate truth-teller Daniel Pipes (Dream) has further moderated his stance on Islam by actually entertaining the idea of “Moderate Islamism”, with Andrew C. McCarthy- whom I’ve debated about this- giving it some credence.

Maimonides: “Your 1 mitzva may tip the scales and bring redemption to the entire world and creation”
Jerusalem has been aware of the importance of China to its growth and security.
In other words, how by any rational playbook can one even begin to explain anti-Semitism?
Entire movements within “orthodoxy” propagate a Judaism of outlandish folklore and Jewish mysticism
And why would the U.S. align itself on these issues with Turkey and Qatar, longtime advocates of Hamas’s interests?
Hamas has coupled its ideological intolerance of the existence of Israel with numerous terrorist attacks and rocket launchings.
Since nothing is static in warfare, the lesson is clear: Iron Dome must be continuously improved to stay ahead of developments in any rocket technology Hamas and Israel’s other enemies might get their hands on.
The IDF pounding continued and it again seemed only a matter of time before Hamas would be forced to accept the Egyptian proposal.
Almost as one, Jews around the world are acknowledging the day-to-day peril facing ordinary Jews in Israel and the extraordinary service of the IDF in protecting them.
