Four Political Sons

The Haggadah’s four architypes of “sons” uncannily correspond to models of political engagement with Israel today. One is wise, one is wicked, one is simple, and one does not even know how to become part of the conversation…

Mass March on Gaza Border May Be Only the Beginning

From a military standpoint, Israel can say it marked a positive outcome. The turnout was far smaller than Hamas wanted—the terrorist group was aiming for 100,000 people—and the protesters were unable to rush or sabotage the border fence.

Gaza and the Worthlessness of International Opinion

Even though the Palestinian “March of Return” was far from peaceful, Israel’s critics still absolve Hamas.

The American Public and Israel: A Record of Support, but Clouds on the Horizon

The Gallup Poll 2018 survey reveals record scores in favor of Israel, but also a few weaknesses.

Palestinians: A March to Destroy Israel

The mass protests are aimed at forcing Israel to accept millions of Palestinian "refugees" as a first step towards turning Jews into a minority in their own country. The next step? Kill or expel the Jews and replace Israel with an Islamic state

Apology Not Accepted: Why It’s Insufficient for Jeremy Corbyn To Be “Sorry” for...

Since Jeremy Corbyn took over the leadership in 2015, allegations of anti-Semitism in the party have skyrocketed and, on more than one occasion, Corbyn was the one at the center of the storm.

The Holocaust Continues to Haunt Europe

Europe is in the throes of extreme Jew-hatred and anti-Semitism, brought on by economic crises, societal unrest and a wave of immigration accompanied by Islamist propaganda.

The Bravest and the Best

What possesses a historian and director to rip apart the best and the brightest of Israel? How can they historically revise the famed Entebberaid?

Non-credible: Report of Israeli F-35s Operating Over Iran

The source of the report claiming that Israeli F-35 strike-fighters flew into Iranian airspace during the past month was a sensationalist Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida. So the claim seems most suspect.

Europe’s Colonialist Obsession with Israel

For all of Europe’s post-colonial guilt, its persistent declarations of what it does and doesn’t find acceptable in the policies of Israel – is the language of an unrepentant colonialist.

Blessed Be The Peacemakers — Like J Street’s Mahmoud Abbas!

J Street appears happy to ignore the anti-Israel actions of Abbas and other members of the government while simultaneously blaming Israel for failed peace talks.

Israel Needs Capitalism, Not Socialism

The Negev was not allocated for free to whoever was willing to build and farm them (as was the practice in the US and Australia). They were settled quite successfully, however – by the Bedouins, who do not understand how socialism works and simply took the land!

PA to Pay $355 million in 2018 to Terrorists and their Families

The total payment by the PA for 2018 is set at $355 million, which is 7.47% of its operation budget of $4.76 billion and some 44% of the funding the PA hopes to receive in foreign aid this year.

Israel MUST Pass an Effective Version of the Taylor Force Act

The Israeli government controls up to 70 percent of the Palestinian Authority. Yet it chooses to continue allowing trade, and even making payments to the PA, despite the direct financial incentives the PA gives to terrorists who murder Jews. Simultaneously, Israel's Global Conference on Anti-Semitism almost entirely ignored the issue.

Speaking of Freedom

Beginning this Friday evening, we celebrate a revolution that changed the world 3330 years ago. Mankind awoke to a new reality as headlines around the world reported how a small and downtrodden people had thrown off the shackles of slavery and embarked on a mission of higher purpose.

The ‘March of Return‘ Explains a Lot

If the goal is two states, then why do the Palestinians keep talking about “return?”

Is Grape Juice Acceptable For The Arba Kosos?

What about the Gemara that says you can squeeze out a cluster of grapes on Erev Shabbos and make Kiddush on Shabbos? They said that’s only if you didn’t treat the grape juice chemically to prevent it from fermenting.

Demography as an Instrument of Opposition

Why is the Coordinator of Government Activities in Judea and Samaria publishing the Palestinian CBO’s distorted and tendentious data, which adds more than a million and a quarter people to Palestinian demographics?

Interview With United Hatzalah Founder Eli Beer

It would have been so simple to save him. The doctor lived only two blocks away, but no one called him. That’s when I realized that every single day people die waiting for an ambulance.

Enough With the Secular Saints

Victims and survivors have been raised to secular saints. Their victimhood supposedly renders their opinion on public affairs unimpeachable. This is a grave injustice—to the victims themselves and the rest of us.

Rubashkin Never Sat In Prison

The choice is ours. We can live in “prison” – a galus of our own making – or we can choose to be free. In a few days, we will be celebrating Pesach and Yetziat Mitzrayim. The letters of Mitzrayim (Egypt) and meitzarim (constraints) are the same. Pesach is an opportunity to break free from bondage and constraints.

Deir Yassin: The End Of A Myth

What really happened at Deir Yassin? The evidence is clear: No massacre occurred, no rape was committed. But the subsequent propaganda and lies has created a vicious myth.

Real Racism

If I knew some white guy who took his family over decades to an American church where the preacher railed weekly against African Americans using the “n” word, it would be reasonable to conclude he was a racist. It is not unreasonable for someone to draw the same conclusion regarding Obama and Corbyn considering the churches they attended and the Facebook groups they belonged to.
