As the smear campaigns against Israel and President Trump continue unabated, partisans of both need to remain confident in order to maximize their effectiveness.
After Egypt closed the Tiran Straits passageway to Eilat, the situation was so dire in Jerusalem that the Rabbis permitted Yeshiva students to violate Shabbat in order to prepare for the inevitable war
Numerous times we explained that not only wouldn’t Trump move the embassy, but that it would be Netanyahu who would quash the move. That is exactly what appears to have happened.
If Israel wishes to clear the moral air, it must start acting like it actually owns the land. Real owners don’t whine to others or try to please violent squatters. Real owners assert their authority – unapologetically.
Minister Ayoob Kara, Israel’s point-man for engagement with the Arab world, was quoted as saying, “our relations with our neighbors are the best they’ve ever been.”
Bottom line: Trump didn’t expose sensitive information about intelligence sources and methods. (Keep that in mind. Trump has not exposed anything.)
Arab leaders–unlike Trump–understand that Israeli-Palestinian peace is nowhere on the horizon. It’s clear from the proposal itself which asks Israel to leave the status quo essentially unchanged, not concessions on any final-status issue
I listened to the speeches and marveled at the words of Torah coming from the non-observant master of ceremonies. Yes, the very air of Israel makes one wise.
In an exclusive interview with the Jewish Press, Syrian Kurdish dissident Sherkoh Abbas explains how Turkish President Erdogan is planning to convince President Trump to abandon the Kurds.
Anticipating that Abbas would promote such falsehoods to Trump and the American public, Israeli PM Netanyahu shared a video on his Facebook page exposing the extent of Abbas' lies. It went viral
In any event, applying the waiver provision to the law’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital makes no sense.
Deal-breaking demands may emerge, but it is rare that anyone goes into a negotiation with the intent of insisting on concessions that can in no way be made by the other side.
According to the news report, the children of that kibbutz had come up from the shelters for the first time in four days to breathe fresh air. There was also to be a wedding in which five couples were to be married.
Today’s young travelers rarely meet Israeli statesmen and functionaries. This, though, was the first group of its kind and, as such, of great interest to both American and Israeli officials.
Unquestionably the worst news yet about Pres. Trump: News sources are reporting that last week Trump revealed highly sensitive intelligence to Russia's Foreign Minister during an Oval Office meeting.
Of late, Trump has been listening to his more mainstream advisers, moderating his views on NATO, Russia, the Syrian conflict and, likely, moving the embassy to Jerusalem
As we can see (pictured), Ambassador Friedman's heart and HEAD are in the right place.
Trump’s peacemaking ambitions have created a shared dilemma for both Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government and the Palestinian Authority
“Dayenu” – Enough is Enough! End the occupation now and forever! I agree with 99% of what “Peace Now” says; no more war, no more stealing land, no more violence and no more occupation!

The Danish Jewish Community reported the imam to the police because his sermon was an outright call to violence against Jews.
