ZOA: If Reports About Trump Administration’s “Peace Deal” are True, It’s a Disaster

The reported plan amounts to Israel giving up tangible land and sovereignty in return for empty promises, and entails the establishment of a terror regime in Israel’s heartland. Worse, as previously demonstrated, there is no way such a state could be demilitarized. No sovereign state has previously either agreed to, or been successfully compelled to, demilitarize; nor could this be enforced.

The OU, Open Orthodoxy, And Communal Decision-Making

No organization (i.e.the OU) can excommunicate anyone. It does not, however, mean that our communities lack organizing principles. Those principles operate based on individual choice. People effectively expel synagogues not compliant with mainstream halacha.

The Iran Protests — and The New York Times

The Iranian people rose up against their oppressive government in June 2009. Now we are again seeing that this regime rules by brute force, is widely despised.

Reform Jediism, Not, It Is

Liel Leibovitz misunderstands The Last Jedi. It is not about a community that abandons its religion for an ephemeral universalist creed, but one that seeks out its ancient religion and returns to it.

An Anti-Semitic Caricature of Me Generates No Criticism from Berkeley Hard Left

For these radicals, it is not about what Israel does; it is about what Israel is: the nation state of the Jewish people. To many on the hard left, Israel is an imperialistic, apartheid, genocidal, and colonialist enterprise that must be destroyed.

The Political Renaissance of the Right

The time when the Israeli Right lagged behind the Israeli Left and sufficed with defensive responses and with stating what not to do, is over.

The bill is intended to deal with a very human problem — ordinary citizens who, unintentionally and due to no fault of their own, may be infringing on the property rights of another and are facing the prospect that in order to make things right, will, either voluntarily or by force, be evicted from their house, the house demolished, and years of sweat and toil will be erased in a blink of an eye.
