All the professional peace processors and self-appointed Middle East “experts” don’t grasp the simple fact that an unassuming real estate developer-turned-presidential son-in-law understands:: the conflict between Palestinian Arabs and Israel has no solution.
Despite their staunch support for Israel, evangelical and fundamentalist Christians are disliked by many American Jews. Why?
Moshe’s final lesson is that we must do each mitzvah to the extent we are able. We are not to be compared to others in their performance or accomplishments. This is the Torah Moshe placed before us.
The Second Get Law has been around for fifteen years and has been upheld by appellate courts and will continue to be despite Judge Bartlett's reversal
The State Dept’s new Israel-bashing, falsehood-filled “Country Reports on Terrorism 2016” – which blames Israel for Palestinian terrorism against innocent Israelis – has caused us to lose confidence in Tillerson’s ability to promote Trump’s Mideast agenda.
To clarify: To the Palestinians this crisis is not about a metal detector or a security camera they want dismantled. It is Israel that they want dismantled.
Sinai-stan, Hamas-stan, Hezbollah-stan, and Syria-stan already have emerged on Israel’s southern and northern borders. This is more than enough for Israel to handle. A Pales-stan on Israel’s eastern border would be unbearable. Israel can’t and won’t let it rise.
The reason we’re still banished from the Temple Mount is not because some women want to pray at the Kotel with tefillin and Torah scrolls; it’s not because other Jews, who believe this is prohibited, attempt to block them. But it may well because of the type of rhetoric and methods that both sides use against each other.
After several days of Arab rioting and violence, Trump sent his Jewish emissaries to pressure Netanyahu to remove the metal detectors and other security enhancements, which he and his cabinet agreed to do. Talk about giving into evil…
How can we expect to come before God and ask Him to rebuild our Holy Temple? Before doing so we must at least begin to show Him that we have learned the lesson of its destruction.
Preventing sexual abuse is not only about telling our kids that no one should touch their private parts or ask them to touch theirs. It’s also vital that a child, no matter the age, be heard and validated upon saying “I’m not comfortable.”
The Temple is an affair of the heart--it's what is missing from our lives. Subconsciously we have begun more and more to feel this great void in our lives.
Rav Soloveitchik, z”l, taught that we are not just remembering what transpired on this day but that, mystically, the burning and destruction of the Temple reoccurs yearly, we are to envision the flames in front of our own eyes in every generation.
Lesson #1 of the Halamish slaughter: This is how Palestinian Arabs behave when they have self-rule and kitchen knives. Imagine what they would do if they had a sovereign state and shoulder-launched missiles
The PA “uses the money it receives from, among other sources, US tax payers to handsomely compensate the killers of Jews. Because the payment is commensurate with the length of the terrorist’s jail sentence, and because the sentence grows heftier the more Jews the terrorist kills
Abbas is still playing his old game. Out of one side of his mouth he claimed a desire for a peaceful solution to the metal detectors crisis, and out of the other side, he egged his people on to murder more and more Israelis.
Anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour took to Facebook Saturday to salute protesters and claim that "Palestine will be free, it's not a question of if, its (sic) when."
Turkey wants a foothold in Jerusalem as part of Erdogan’s dream of rebuilding the Ottoman empire. He has urged thousands of Muslims to descend on the Jerusalem ascent the Temple Mount in order to “protect it.”
The Palestinians decided NOT to enter the Temple Mount unless the metal detectors are removed. The Palestinians and the Waqf lie to the world, claiming Israel is denying Muslims access to their holy sites.
Jerusalem is a consensus issue in Israeli politics. The Netanyahu government would enjoy widespread public backing for action to parry Palestinian and Islamic incitement in Jerusalem and to solidify Israel’s rights on Har HaBayit
What is peace to a Muslim? It is submission. To Allah, to jizya, to the sword, to other Muslims. When others submit, whether voluntarily or involuntarily, there is peace and quiet. After all, if you slaughter people, they no longer make noise or fight back. They're DEAD.
"Activists" under the banner of "human rights" use their halo -- some times as a shield, other times as a hammer -- preaching about commitment to high ideals and human values, while appealing to people's baser instincts.
Azerbaijan is Israel's key partner in the South Caucasus and Central Asia region. Bilateral relations between the two countries continue to grow steadily with successes in diverse and important areas and military-strategic cooperation.
The NY Times and the Washington Post believe that Israel’s polices are to blame for “provoking” Arab hostility and violence. If you have any doubts, just read their headlines.
Yiddishkeit is indeed the shining key to unlocking the prison holding the addict. The reality is that Judaism is the gateway solution; it helps to transform one’s life by revealing the actual reason why we are here
