Palestinians: Metal Detectors or Lie Detectors – Who Is Violating What?

Countering Contemptuous Palestinians

Sinai-stan, Hamas-stan, Hezbollah-stan, and Syria-stan already have emerged on Israel’s southern and northern borders. This is more than enough for Israel to handle. A Pales-stan on Israel’s eastern border would be unbearable. Israel can’t and won’t let it rise.

“Baseless Hatred” and the Temple Mount

The reason we’re still banished from the Temple Mount is not because some women want to pray at the Kotel with tefillin and Torah scrolls; it’s not because other Jews, who believe this is prohibited, attempt to block them.
