‘Flatbush Girl’: Leader Or Misleading?

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.

On Annexation, Trump’s Peace Deal, And The Sin Of The Spies: An Exclusive Interview...

Our job is not to dictate solutions to Israel. Our job is to support it in finding solutions to its very longstanding serious challenges.

Nike’s Kaepernick Ad Is Ridiculous

Colin Kaepernick started the protest movement back in 2016, when he declared, "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color."

The Democratization of Influence

Influence is no longer a function of overriding wealth or coercive power. When the Elites, who have been used to telling regular folks what their values should be, lose their monopoly, they often lash out.

Israel 25 Years after the Oslo Accords: Why Israelis Shy from Victory

Rabin stuck with Arafat, whom he considered, in a curious twist of logic, both a tacit supporter of terrorism and a peacemaker.

Sacrificing Israel’s Long-term Interests for Short-term Gains

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.

Apples And Oranges

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. Other religions followed suit and declared it their own holy city – with catastrophic results during various periods of history.

Fighting the Good Fight in Europe

Israel is a grand historic reunion of people and land, and a just and moral actor in the medieval and violent Arab Middle East! Palestinian fantasies such as the so-called ‘right’ of return only encourage absolutist demands and obstructionism.

What’s Wrong with UNRWA

UNRWA is a deeply flawed organization and has been so for decades. It has been an embarrassment that the US has done so little to reform the organization over the past decade and that liberal media still cannot accurately report on the agency’s corruption and failings.

Britain’s Burka Blues: “I’d Like to Thank Boris Johnson”

"[T]his is a point that we Muslims seem to be unable to get across to non-Muslims – there is no basis in Islam for the niqab.... That's why Muslim nations are themselves regulating and banning the niqab and burqa..." — Dr. Qanta Ahmed, The Conversation, January 2017.

Jerusalem: Why Palestinian Leaders Say Don’t Vote

Palestinian leaders and their religious clerics do not want to see Arabs live a comfortable life under Israel. They are afraid that the world would see that Arabs can have a good life under Israeli sovereignty.

Spotlight On Women Artists: Kolot From Nachlaot

After a while, performing for women only became exciting. It’s also amazing to play with other women in a band. The energy is great!

Back To School: Jewish Students, Be Prepared For Harassment And Hate On Campus

Despite school policies forbidding discrimination based on religion and ethnicity, Jewish students targeted by anti-Israel groups are rarely protected by administrators who are either incapable of distinguishing between political and hate speech, or whose personal views may be affecting their objectivity.

What is the Role of UNIFIL?

Presumably both the Lebanese and Israeli governments prefer to have UNIFIL there as a sort of buffer, but at least in the Israeli case they would clearly like an active buffer that actually tries to do what it was tasked to do,

When the Democrats Opposed the Palestinian “Right of Return”

It is remarkable to witness how Obama's tenure was so pro-Palestinian, that people have forgotten that the Democratic Party also was against the “Right of Return” before he took office.

International Law Is Not Yet Ready To Deal With The Threat of Terrorism

The admission that Israel's Supreme Court is knowingly limiting Israel's options in its own war on terror is not made less disturbing by the claim that Israel - as a democracy - gains some kind of moral victory "at the end of the day" by "preserving the rule of law."

Much Ado about Nothing

The new law does not infringe on the basic law of human dignity and liberty, but acts as a second foundation along the basic civil rights law, buttressing the national Jewish character of the state.

Are Settlements an Obstacle to Peace?

Homes don’t get in the way of peace negotiations.

Palestinian Refugees: Trump’s Reality Check

"UNRWA has, instead of resolving the problem, done everything in its power to perpetuate it. Instead of peace and coexistence, it teaches hatred and incitement. Instead of fighting terrorist organizations, it collaborates with them..."

Julia Salazar and the Jews

The issue is not Salazar's Jewishness. It is the antisemitic anti-Zionism embedded within the progressive-left and, thus, also within the Democratic Party.

Is a Historic Decision on UNRWA Imminent?

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). Such a decision could be as significant as Harry Truman’s decision to recognize the State of Israel just 11 minutes after the Jewish State declared its independence in May 1948.

The Zionist Quran

The Quran itself verifies with detailed explanation that Allah promised the land of the modern State of Israel to the Jewish People. Are Muslims denying the words of Allah or is the Quran a Zionist document?
