Abbas’s Classic Thug Extortion Trick

Mahmoud Abbas spent his speech claiming that this was the last chance for the peace process. In reality, it was simply the last chance for Abbas to remain in charge.

The Gaza Ceasefire Terms are a Security and Media Disaster

The elimination of the buffer zone by the security fence will not only leave Israel more vulnerable to attacks by terrorists, but also invite "publicity stunts" by adversarial non-governmental organizations.

‘Because they Could’

In contrast to rogue players, Israel uses force only because it has to.

Gaza is Not the Key, Philadelphi Is

By removing this layer of Israeli protection, an "exponential increase" in the Gaza arsenal predictably followed, culminating in the Fajr-5 missiles that reached Tel Aviv this month.

Is Abbas About to Join Hamas?

Abbas was one of the first Arab leaders to congratulate Hamas on its "victory" over Israel during the recent eight-day confrontation.

Hamas in the Sunni-Shiite War

Hamas has become a tool for both the Sunni and Shi'ite fundamentalists to use in their battle not only against the non-Muslim world, but against each other.

Two Years Ago – Two Very Special People

I have not done this before. I have never memorialized two of the closest people to me in one article. I gave it a lot of thought, and it is not just because they died within hours of each other two years ago that I decided to do this. It is also because there was a tremendous connection between them, and as I thought of each one I was overwhelmed by the similarities.

A Masterwork Completed – 84 Years Later

How long does it take to write and publish a book? One recently released work took some eighty-four years to see the light of day in Jerusalem. But with its publication the Torah world has been blessed with a new, vowelized edition of the Torah Temimah, complete with the supra-commentary Meshivat Nefesh – a work begun in the 1920s by a prolific rabbi among whose works was a weekly column several decades later in The Jewish Press.

No Dancing With Wolves

At times, complicated issues are most clearly understood in simple terms. Speaking before the Knesset in 2006, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (who at the time was the opposition leader) captured, in two brief sentences, that which lies at the heart of the ongoing, centuries-old Arab-Israeli conflict: “The truth is that if Israel were to put down its arms, there would be no more Israel. If the Arabs were to put down their arms, there would be no more war.”

A Big-Time Pollster In The Making?

I come across Yair Michaeli standing amid the bustle of an Israeli shopping mall, a clipboard in his hand. He appears to be a serious-minded Israeli haredi. What is he doing in a place like this?

Israel Paying the Price for the West’s Self-Hatred

In Europe, Israel-bashing remains one of the favorite pastimes of the media.

Hamas Is Fooling Everyone, Everywhere (Video)

Is Hamas really on its way to moderation and pragmatism, as some Western political analysts and diplomats have come to believe?

There are no Jewish Sectors, Only One Nation

This past week should teach us one thing; in the eyes of the enemy, Israel is one Israel.

Anachronisms

Frequently, when speaking with groups here in Hebron, I ask if anyone knows where the name ‘Palestine’ originated? More often than not, no one replies. So, let’s set the record straight.

King Abdullah in Trouble with Jordan’s Palestinians

Last week, protests broke out in Jordan after a government decision to raise fuel prices.

Hamas’s Victory: How Muslims See It

It hard to imagine that at least some of Israel's leaders do not understand the Muslim mindset.

Converting Denmark into a Muslim Country

Over the past several years, immigrant gangs have proliferated geographically across all of Denmark.

The sole purpose of this ceasefire is to allow Netanyahu to survive the coming election.

You Make Me Sick

Are you really unaware how hollow you sound, how callow?

Operation Pillar of Defense: Postscript

The same government that caved to the media and the Schalit Task Force by releasing 1,027 terrorists from prison last year has caved yet again—this time despite the fact that Hamas violated red lines by shooting missiles at Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

I Am a Loser Today

I am not ashamed to say I am an Israeli Jew, I am a loser today in the war with Hamas.

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