The re-theologizing of Christmas is based on the false premise that the Jesus of the Bible is the Jesus (Isa) of the Koran. This religious fusion, sometimes referred to as "Chrislam," is gaining ground in a West that has become biblically illiterate.
The IDF must not only not adopt a turn-the-other-cheek doctrine but should prosecute those involved in such provocations to the fullest extent of the law.
Palestinian behavior has made their message as clear as water: the conflict is not about an embassy or a settlement or a fence or a checkpoint, but about the very presence of Jews in this part of the world.

While many countries in Europe and throughout the Muslim world were highly critical of Trump recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city, the Indian government merely issued a brief statement, stressing that India’s position was consistent and independent of any third party.
Considering Trump officials say it will take at least 3 years to move the embassy to Jerusalem; the State Dept. says there are no plans to list Jerusalem as Israel's capital and US citizens born in Jerusalem still have "Jerusalem" rather than "Israel" listed as their place of birth it seems only fair to ask: What, exactly, has changed?
We don’t often think of success and joy as being connected. We equate success with ruthlessness and hard work and joy with happiness or a special experience in the moment. But what if we could achieve both together? What would it take?
With regard to the current and copious debate amongst Armenians on the topic of closer bilateral ties with Israel, Israel has abundant reasons for skepticism and concern. For starters, Armenia is closely aligned with Iran.
America often stands alone with Israel against the world. The bias of the international community against the nation state of the Jewish people has been long standing and evident, especially at the UN.
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.
US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley seems to have run out of patience, with her colleagues at the UN, “What we witnessed here today in the Security Council is an insult,” she said. “It won’t be forgotten.”

If Abbas is the only, indeed best possible, Palestinian partner for peace and these are his views, what chance is there for a successful negotiation? None, I would think
Given the cry raised by Israel’s enemies – and some purported friends like Britain and France – you might think that Trump had ordered bombs dropped on civilians. But the objections were not for any loss of life, but for the intent to move a building and treat Israel normally.
It is time for us Muslims to show remorse, to stop playing the victim because, other than the likes of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, no one is listening.
The Passport Office should immediately withdraw and repeal the special regulations in the Foreign Affairs Manual that instruct how to designate “country of birth” for citizens born in Jerusalem. A renewed passport for any U.S. citizen whose current passport specifies “Jerusalem” should automatically say “Israel.”
Mainstream media (MSM) shows the oppressor to be Israel and the oppressed to be the Palestinians, facts tell a different story. The US Department of State is no less culpable than MSM in failing to reveal these truths
Dreidel Rabbi? Two years ago, CBS’s “Sunday Morning” came to our home to showcase my dreidels. Countless dreidels seen by millions of people! Yes, that’s me. I can walk most anywhere only to have a stranger approach me and ask, “Aren’t you the Dreidel Rabbi?”
America overwhelmingly opposes US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, a new poll claims. Cause for concern? Not when you realize the poll was carried out by an anti-Israel professor who crafted the question so the results would be slanted in that direction.
One wonders if other religions ever had to take into consideration frequent swells of persecution and literal danger to life and limb and encode it into religious law. In too many times and places, being Jewish has been and still is an act of courage.
Look into the darkness, to search for the source of faithful illumination that can guide us along the path of spiritual integrity. The flames of the Chanukah menorah shine bright out of the deepest darkness, when the days are shortest and the cold of winter has descended.
The Maccabean revolt was not merely a struggle to revoke harsh decrees or secure freedom of worship. HaShem’s Divine blueprint for mankind demands Hebrew sovereignty over Eretz Yisrael
