If Haaretz had its way, it’s progressive and politically correct to ignore the wishes of Israeli Arabs who don’t want to be described as Palestinian and call them, Palestinian regardless.
It is ludicrous to argue that the settlements are an “obstacle to peace,” because they were not an obstacle to Israel offering the Palestinians a state on three separate occasions.
It is little known that hundreds of thousands of Arab squatters in ''Arab East Jerusalem'' live on land still owned by the Jewish National Fund.
FACT: The only state without 1 town named for a biblical site is Obama’s home state, Hawaii, adding a touch of irony to the lame-duck POTUS' refraining from vetoing the UN resolution condemning Israel
The most abhorrent aspect of the UNSC resolution is the fact that it tries to give control of all Jewish holy sites in the “occupied” areas to the Palestinians.
For those who support a Jewish, Democratic Israel, committed to civil rights for all its citizens- including the right to not be murdered-David Friedman is the right choice for US Ambassador to Israel
Real moderation, tolerance and co-existence on the Arab side, with an accurate Western understanding of the historical, legal & social factors perpetuating the situation, would make all the difference
The Judean Rose cites her 10 Condemnations of the most recent and offensive UN/US travesty
It seems the Chanukah party co-hosted in Washington by the country of Azerbaijan and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish organizations was THE Chanukah party to attend in the Capital
Most of my fellow Israelis' (especially my neighbors here in YESHA) objections to Secretary Kerry’s speech stems from assumptions he makes. We find these assumptions absurd. Here's the SHORT list:
For the last night: Chanukah is a multifaceted festival and we aspire to reveal its many faces so that they may shed their radiance on the nation returning to its land and to its independence.
A nation that acknowledges the importance of spiritual values alongside national security and material prosperity becomes a national candle on the world arena, a veritable 'light unto the nations'
Obama's considerable self-regard, coupled with his very thin skin, has propelled him to scapegoat and punish a blameless target for his frustration and rage. The target? Jewish Israel.
Kerry’s speech was a few tossed bones to Israel while again stabbing Israel in the back with a proposal that endangers the Jewish state.
Kerry and the Obama team won't acknowledge that Israel is the victim and the Palestinians are the aggressors nor recognize the difference between democratic Israel and the terror-promoting PA regime.
Kerry has demonstrated a complete lack of understanding of international diplomacy and Kerry's hubris has deluded him to believe that every one of his colossal failures was actually a success.
Commenting on Kerry’s speech, Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon said the Obama Administration “acted against Israel at the U.N., and any claim to the contrary is a distortion of reality.”
It is Obama, not President-elect Trump, who has the bully pulpit. Obama chose to wield that power in a way that will make another Arab/Israeli war more likely and create a diplomatic crisis for the US
As awareness about child safety grows, there are practical questions that arise on how to deal with convicted sex offender within the community.
Because numerous Jewish organizations refuse to support the legal, political, historic, and religious right of Jews to live in the Jewish homelands in Judea/Samaria and east Jerusalem, Obama succeeded
There’s really only one suitable Zionist response to last week’s UN Security Council resolution on the settlements: massive settlement construction.
Obama’s dereliction of international and humanitarian responsibilities by failing to implement his infamous “red lines” in Syria led to the Syrian genocide and made a mockery of his Nobel Peace Prize
The UN resolution effectively demands that Israel withdraw from the Jewish Quarter, from Jerusalem's new neighborhoods and from all of Judea and Samaria.
The Conference Chanukah party was timed to coincide with the official Obama's WH Chanukah party nearby and proved Israel has great ties with numerous Muslim countries and is NOT as isolated as feared.
This year, the UN was bookmarked by startling resolutions orchestrated by Pres. Obama: the Iran Nuclear Deal in Jan., and in Dec. Jewish presence declared illegal in areas integral to Jewish history.
