Yelling lies about Israel and Jews does not make one "pro-Palestinian." It only makes one an Israel-hater. If people really want to help the Palestinians, let them stand up and shout about human rights under Hamas or the PA
While the potential dangers and complications for Israel of a Palestinian state could be significant, Jordan would face threats to both its social stability and its foundation and its very existence.
It's time to drop all "peace plans" and instead work for an Israeli victory, Palestinian defeat, and both sides moving forward.
Misery in Gaza is not in Israel’s interest. The problem is that Hamas has shown no interest in transformation from Islamist terrorist group to a responsible government of Gaza and that is why it should turn over governance to the PA.
Israel’s critics treated Ghandour’s death as proof of Israel’s evil. In other words, they effectively declared that Israel had no right to defend its border by any means whatsoever–
This week’s security escalation showed that something in the balance struck between Israel and Hamas has shifted.
Wrong on crime, wrong on Israel, and wrong on education.
Apparently the people holding the signs mistakenly think that Israel – and Israel alone – is to blame, as if Israel has the key to let Gaza free and is maliciously not doing do so and for no good reason. This is strange since, after all, Israel left Gaza 13 years ago, giving away the key to the locals, and asking just not to be disturbed
A tour through the West Bank visiting cities you have never been to...
The United Nations, a story of from bad to worse.
Both concepts are built around the Palestinian logic that Israel is the eternal enemy. That is why Israel’s creation was a “catastrophe.” But what precisely was the “setback”?
Beyond the demented fringe reciting Kaddish for the Gazan terrorists, many Jews are publicly expressing grief at the death of the terrorists, yet express no sadness that our adversaries are obscenely providing human sacrifices to capitalize on casualties so as to demonize Israel for public relations purpose
The European Union is beginning to grasp that the implicit criticism of those who fail to join the United States in supporting Israel carries consequences.
We have history on our side. Am Yisrael Chai!!
Hamas did not achieve the goals it had in mind when it organized and set in motion the “March of Return” campaign. The organization would be wise to cut a deal with Gaza business community leaders and the civil bureaucracy that they administer the Strip while Hamas continues to police it, provided it refrains from fighting Israel.
Before it became a UN cliché, “disproportionate force” was how wars were won. Unconditional surrender was once the goal of war. Half-hearted warfare is precisely what the UN wants to impose on Israel.
All children, regardless of age, want to come home-even if they have never been there before
Hebrew Union College, the flagship of Reform Judaism, embraces author Michael Chabon, an anti-Israel, proponent of inter-marriage.
For most of its history, Israel knew it could depend on both Republicans and Democrats for support. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case. Democrats are abandoning Israel in droves.
The Palestinians' problem is not with a settlement or a checkpoint or a fence. They have a problem with the existence of Israel in any borders. Palestinians have still not come to terms with Israel's right to exist, period; this is the essence of the Israeli-Arab conflict. They see Israel as one big settlement that needs to be ripped out.
How can there ever be a lasting peace between a Zionist state and another nation where the president thinks that Zionism is a crime against humanity?
It launched a large-scale mortar-shell attack two days after losing three of its armed members to an Israeli airstrike in response to a gun attack on an IDF unit patrolling the Gazan border. Is Palestinian Islamic Jihad responding to the killing of its operatives or acting under Iranian instructions?
The willingness of the media to overlook blatant anti-Semitism mirrors growing tolerance of anti-Semitism in the public sphere. The media is complicit in making anti-Semitism acceptable.
Today, many American Jewish children are that feeling any special responsibility toward their fellow Jews is Nazi-like behavior, and only if they eschew such feelings can they be good Jews who have internalized the Holocaust’s lessons.
Radical sub-state actors are able to exercise full control of the territories they govern yet make themselves almost invisible when they choose to do so. As recent events in Gaza showed, this ability serves them not only on the military front but also in the arenas of diplomacy and public influence.
