Palestinians, African migrants and even Dreamers have everyone’s sympathy. Meanwhile, one of the great humanitarian crises of the century is unfolding in Syria, and the world just yawns.
Genuine progress in the Arab-Israeli conflict will not come about by the amount of land Israel cedes, but by the degree Israel’s neighbors embrace education for peace with Israel

While liberals see the Olympics as an opportunity for negotiation, conservatives see Pyongyang’s agreement to attend as a tactic to gain benefits and not a genuine expression of warming relations.
According to Israeli military assessments, the LAF is increasingly coming under the sway of the Iranian-backed terror organization Hezbollah, which dominates Lebanon politically and militarily.
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 Irish and Jewish people share a common history of suffering cruel persecution and achieving national redemption against immeasurable odds. But today, modern Ireland is one of Europe’s fiercest critics of Israel.

A loving recollection of her father and how his passing has inspired the author to get more out of whatever time she has in life.
Hussein is widely viewed through the fog of history as something of a principled moderate who yearned to be a peacemaker with journalists whitewashing or ignoring its many inconvenient chapters and plentiful examples of ugly rhetoric against Israel and Jews.

As Abbas begins the 14th year of his 4-year term he has hardly been the model of accountability, abusing his position to secure fortunes for his family.

This dispute is about who sets the parameters for our understanding of what the Holocaust was and what it represented – and it is a problem that extends far beyond Poland's borders.
