Miles-Shashitsky is running for district leader. If elected, the damage she will do as a more prominent role model to our impressionable youth will increase exponentially. She will also undoubtedly cause many a chillul Hashem as she advances her admittedly ultra-liberal social agenda.
Our job is not to dictate solutions to Israel. Our job is to support it in finding solutions to its very longstanding serious challenges.
Rabin stuck with Arafat, whom he considered, in a curious twist of logic, both a tacit supporter of terrorism and a peacemaker.
Israel would be foolish not to take advantage of the Trump administration’s apparent desire to close UNRWA, even at the price of war with Hamas.
Let’s clear the table and tell the "narrative" as it really is: Jerusalem was chosen as the Jewish people's national and religious center before the dawn of organized religion.

The US administration is due to decide at the beginning of September whether to stop its funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).
