The Test of the March of Return: Violence in the West Bank

The real test of Hamas’s March of Return campaign in Gaza lies in its ability to mobilize mass violence in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Bethlehem, Hebron, and other parts of the West Bank.

PA Defies Bipartisan Taylor Force Act, Reiterates Commitment to “Pay to Slay” with New...

The budgeting of millions to pay terrorists and their families incentivizes terror. At a time when the US, with bipartisan legislation, signaled it would not tolerate the encouragement of terror, Abbas’s and the PA’s defiance is astounding.

Citizens of Gaza have plenty to protest about--just not Israel. Their complaints start with misrule by Hamas
