America overwhelmingly opposes US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, a new poll claims. Cause for concern? Not when you realize the poll was carried out by an anti-Israel professor who crafted the question so the results would be slanted in that direction.
One wonders if other religions ever had to take into consideration frequent swells of persecution and literal danger to life and limb and encode it into religious law. In too many times and places, being Jewish has been and still is an act of courage.
What could be more ironic than the fact that we are experiencing an unprecedented outbreak of long-belated sexual harassment charges in a generation defined by its sexual licentiousness?
If only we would realize that every smack we receive is a gift in disguise, we would embrace those moments of challenge and cherish them.
The Maccabean revolt was not merely a struggle to revoke harsh decrees or secure freedom of worship. HaShem’s Divine blueprint for mankind demands Hebrew sovereignty over Eretz Yisrael
The Palestinians should beware. The world should beware. Push the Jews too far and you might just get a Jewish backlash, “Jewish Days of Rage,” today’s Maccabees in action.
Apparently, the media bias against Trump, the already existing anti-Israel bias and the ignorance of some in the media has resulted in a perfect storm of horrendously inaccurate stories.
Newsflash for journalists: There's nothing new on the Palestinian street. Threats of violence and walking out of any "peace process" is old, old news. Jerusalem is not on fire. Jerusalem is tense, and has long been so, because the Palestinians have not yet managed to come to terms with Israel's right to exist. That is the real story.
While Erdogan labels Israel an “occupier” it is Turkey that exceeds most countries in the world in that category, currently occupying half of Cyprus, Northern Kurdistan with its 20 million Kurds, and West Armenia.
The decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital should be perceived as a reaffirmation of the victory of Chanukah, which, after all, celebrated the liberation by Jews from the Hellenists of the city of Jerusalem and the Holy Temple that radical Arabs and haters of Israel today (including Arafat and his followers, and UNESCO and their fellow travelers) deny ever had any connection to the Jewish people.
"#Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel no matter how many times Trump says it," wrote political activist Linda Sarsour, who has argued Zionists can't be feminists and that "nothing is creepier than Zionism. "He doesn't speak for me."
I say to Alabamans: vote for Judge Moore. The Lord will not hold you responsible for his possible wrongdoing forty years ago, but will probably look unkindly at your ignoring the liberal, pro-partial birth abortion policies of Doug Jones.
The reaction of the Palestinians to Pres. Trump's announcement recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is not to be read on an empty stomach.
