I find it unreasonable and counterproductive for Jewish Americans to support the Democratic Party in figures above the 70th percentile while the Democratic Party supports Jewish well-being in numbers below the 30th percentile.
All the economic benefits being offered to Gaza as part of a package deal – an improvement in water and electricity supplies, the construction of a seaport, the cancellation of debts owed by the Hamas government, a relaxation of the Israeli security blockade – hinge on Hamas accepting conditions it is categorically unwilling to countenance.
The Chief Rabbinate is valiantly trying to hold the line so that Israel does not experience the problems that plague the rest of the Jewish world while the Farbers of the world are trying to break down their authority by playing to the emotions of people unaware of lies they are being fed
Pope Francis, along with many other Catholic leaders is remaking Catholicism in the image of leftism, just as mainstream Protestant leaders, and non-Orthodox Jewish clergy and lay leaders have been rendering most non-Orthodox synagogues and lay institutions left-wing organizations.
By contrast, at great political sacrifice, the late Governor Mario Cuomo, the current governor's father, opposed the death penalty, citing several principled arguments, including that it was not an effective deterrent. The fact that he himself was a Catholic was irrelevant to the debate.
In 2018, the State of Israel declared itself the Nation-State of the Jewish people. The public declaration has been made. The Jew is out of the closet. Deal with your anti-Semitism if you want to live next to Israel, and strike treaties and do business with the Jewish State.
The Israeli public as a whole has been substantially less committed to—in fact, downright unenthusiastic about—changing the status quo at the Kotel
For Corbyn, radical Islamists, rabid Jew-haters, none of it mattered – as long as the target was Israel, that person was considered a ‘friend’.
One can debate a law while presenting the facts accurately--that is the role of a journalist. Both news stories and opinion columns should be based on accurate facts without overstatement or distortion. Unfortunately, many in the mainstream media have failed.
The few protests by Israeli Druze are sparked by the knowledge that the Jewish left and European funded-NGOs will embrace its cause and fight side-by-side in the streets. In the Jewish State there is a left-wing army that is willing to join their protests in a manner that never existed before.
What a contrast between these vile acts of discrimination committed against Israeli sportsmen and the inclusive atmosphere at the World Lacrosse Championship, which took place in Netanya earlier this month.
