Six Million Excuses NOT to Make Aliyah

The one reason to make Aliyah outweighs all the arguments not to move to Israel.

Palestinians Refuse To Accept Israel Within Any Borders

A recent news item shed piercing light on the reason for the intractability of the Arab war on Israel. The well-known 1970s disco group Boney M, invited by the Palestine International Festival to give a concert in Palestinian Authority-controlled Ramallah, was pressured to drop performing one of its signature hit songs, "Rivers of Babylon."

Nuking The Blues

The frightening details of the chemical and biological stockpiles he actually developed could fill books.

Purim Guide for the Perplexed 2013

A Purim lesson: Be wary of enemies, posing as partners of peace, concealing a strategic goal of extermination.

Thanks for the Criticism, David Ha’ivri, But I Think We Were 100% Right

It is quite possible even for the Jewish Press online edition to be wrong, and when we are, we welcome criticism. We weren't wrong in this instance, though.

Hezbollah and the Bloody Syrian Chronicles

The target of the car bomb attack was the Center for Islamist Cooperation, the operational center for many of Hezbollah's offshoot organizations.

Left-Wing Hate Fest: What The Media Didn’t Tell You About The New York Anti-War...

"We don't care if you [Bush] put forth Condoleezza Rice or Colin Powell," he continued. "They do not represent the black community."

Time for the Democratic Party to Recognize its Antisemitism Problem

There are worrying signs that America’s Democratic Party is following in the footsteps of its Corbyn-led Labour Party cousin across the Atlantic. Radical elements within the Party are increasingly pulling Democrats farther to the Left.

Moral Incoherence In Irish Teacher’s Union Boycott

The Teachers’ Union of Ireland (TUI), which represents some 14,500 members, voted in early April “to cease all cultural and academic collaboration with Israel, including the exchange of scientists, students and academic personalities, as well as cooperation in research programmes [sic].”

Who Speaks for Modern Orthodoxy?

There is an ever-widening schism among Modern Orthodox Jews.

A Free or Democratic State – Which Do You Prefer?

Freedom may include democracy but democracy does not necessarily include freedom.

Blood in the Headlines

The media doesn't report Israeli kids are afraid to go to school or that their parents sleep with guns

Religious Bases Of Jihadist Terror Points Of Importance

Faced with staggering and largely unprecedented geopolitical threats, President Obama already understands the limits of military action against terrorism. At the same time, it is unlikely that he also fully appreciates the stark and absolutely determinative role of religion and ritual in shaping America's principal terrorist adversaries. It is imperative, therefore, that the president begin to understand that all Arab/Islamic terrorism, including Palestinian terrorism, is authentically driven by deeply theological notions of sacrifice.

Iran’s Credibility

And whereas at the outset the plan was that Iran would have to surrender most of its centrifuges, it will now be able to retain several thousand.

Forever In Awe

The pattern of repetition is among a handful of criteria that validate the veracity of a dream.

Dear Brother: Who Are You?

Hey Yankel, how are you doing? Thanks for the pics you sent me. You and your son really look well fed and robust. However, since you asked me how I am doing, I have no choice but to be honest.

Reform Jediism, Not, It Is

Liel Leibovitz misunderstands The Last Jedi. It is not about a community that abandons its religion for an ephemeral universalist creed, but one that seeks out its ancient religion and returns to it.

NY Times Completely Misunderstands Hamas

The NY Times doesn't understand Hamas or the Hezbollah model they are following.

Iran, Obama And Netanyahu

Most analysts seem to be in agreement that Iran has mounted its current charm offensive aimed at President Obama and the West generally because the broad effects of sanctions have been taking hold and causing economic misery across Iran, fanning growing unrest.

Israel’s Security After The Oslo Agreement (Second of Two Parts)

The following is the original text of an important lecture delivered by Professor Louis Rene Beres to the Dayan Forum, Israel, on March 11, 1994 (Ambassador Zalman Shoval, presiding). It remains entirely relevant today, especially with Israeli Prime Minister Olmert's: (1) recent release of Palestinian terrorists as a "goodwill gesture;" (2) the Prime Minister's equally incomprehensible support of one murderous terrorist faction (Fatah) against another (Hamas); and his corollary commitment to the altogether twisted cartography of a markedly one-sided "Road Map."

Anti-Zionist Christians Use Jewish Voices To Defame Israel

Speaking in the basement of Westminster Presbyterian Church (WPC) in Minneapolis on July 3, 2010, Jeff Halper, founder of the Israeli Committee Against Home Demolitions, offered a relentless denunciation of Israel to a group of Presbyterians.

A Weekend To Remember: Reflections on the OU’s Marriage Retreat

"You're going where?! That sounds interesting. What is it?" This response we received from friends when we mentioned our plan to attend the Orthodox Union's Marriage Enrichment Retreat this past July reflected the very same questions we were thinking. And it was with those thoughts that we went to the retreat - interested but unsure of what exactly we were getting into. A nice hotel, no kids, good food and maybe some interesting workshops.

This Cancellation A Long Time Coming

Joseph Epstein, one of America's most distinguished essayists (and a man who over the past couple of decades has made his way along the well-trod political path from left to right), has canceled his subscription to The New York Times.
