Contrary to conventional 'wisdom,' Israel’s “occupation” does NOT spur Palestinian terror; irrefutably, terror increases when Palestinians gain control of land, drops when Israel reasserts control
This year, as usual, demagogue politicians are joining the calls for yet another state commission of inquiry into the hysteria of "kidnapped Yemenite children"
We, the Jewish people, are like the candles of the menorah. Once “lit,” we must remain lit, a living source of light.
Never mind the absence of a bipartisan consensus about what we should do; our politicians are engaged in unsightly squabbling about the nature of the problem itself, divisions abound,

It is easy to dismiss, as some have, this presidential election cycle as a 4-year diversion. We just have to get through the next four years and all will be well, they say. I could not disagree more.
Not only is the weather heating up, but so too is the election season. Included here are some highly recommended books on presidential campaigns.

What particularly rankles is that Mr. Nadler’s statement accompanying his declaration of support for the Iran deal actually made a better case for opposing it.
“We took nothing, as we thought we would come home in a few days, but we never came home,” Sheindl recalled. She never saw Shaja again.
The Department of Justice initially censored the transcripts of the terrorist Omar Mateen, perpetrator of the Orlando Massacre, deleting his pledge to ISIS.
The recent claim by the PA that the Jews are poisoning the water supplies of Palestinians is fabricated, just like all libels against Jews throughout history.
The drop in settlement construction and an increase in efforts on behalf of Israeli Arabs don’t exactly fit the narrative of a government and public mired in right-wing extremism
