For America, and everything that made it America, the results of Tuesday’s election are a welcome and necessary respite - but are far from being a lasting redemption
The heart of the reason why the two-state solution has repeatedly failed: Not only have the Palestinians never suffered any consequences for intransigence, but they have actually been rewarded for it
Because the Knesset is elected by the free market it is the only entity in Israel that can be called public. All the rest, with no exceptions, are anything but faithful representation of the public
Consider the situation in America compared to the situation in Israel on almost any foreign or domestic issue, and you’re forced to admit that, heck, Israel is in a better place
We often say to ourselves, “If only God, Himself, would tell us what to do.” If we open our ears & hearts to this week’s parsha we will hear God settling one of life’s challenges-where we should live.
What’s striking is there’s a pattern that repeats itself over and over again of believing that if the United States distances itself from Israel, it’s going to get some kind of strategic benefit.
The issue has recently become even more acute with the emergence of a French proposal to convene an international peace conference before the end of the year.
An Interpol alert can serve as the basis for arrest in different jurisdictions around the world and eventually extradition to the country in which the alert originated.
The United States has a long history of terrible voter turnout. It is not that people are apathetic about the outcomes of elections; they just realize that their votes do not matter.
Of course the very texts of the scrolls confirm a fundamental historical Jewish connection to the land.
Whenever I see people, of whatever religion or background, who are joyfully coming together after a long separation, I feel spellbound, and I must stand by and witness that pure innocent joy as long as I can.
This election revealed that there are deep divisions within the American electorate. Some of these divisions are reasonable and others are divisions across impermissible lines. The nation must heal.
J Street's mission has been to bring about creation of a Palestinian state next to Israel. Israelis believe it would be a brutal totalitarian state, the kind that often invades neighboring countries.
As Clinton and Obama trash “deplorable” Trump supporters, they should consider their own tainted houses, in which some of the world's worst deplorables gave them direct financial/political support
No matter your presidential preference Comey’s “never mind” letter to Congress about the discovery of more emails on Weiner’s computer casts doubt on his judgment and the probity of the investigation
There is such beauty in Orthodoxy, I feel my life has been incredibly enriched.
Liberals paint all white men in a monolithic camp, even though they are actually the only demographic that doesn’t have a knee-jerk reaction to vote in a simplified and unified manner.
Nothing casts more doubt on the wisdom of the West’s drive for Palestinian statehood now than the PA’s treatment of the refugee camps over its 22 years of existence.
The world is about to be thrown into a level of chaos of unknown proportions and none of this depends on the outcome of the elections in America.
Arab Jew-hatred has caused Britain to fail occasionally to condemn and to find excuses for Arab aggression against Israelis, all in the name of appeasing the Arabs and their supporters
Sadly, the most consequential elections in modern history may well be decided because of the most inconsequential reasons
Israel is facing two Palestinian camps: Hamas does not want to make peace with Israel because it believes Israel ought not to exist, and Fatah can't make peace with Israel because it is too weak
Dems miss the point completely: "The target is not Hillary Clinton. It’s us. The only reason the whole email flap has legs is because the candidate is female. Can you imagine this happening to a man?”
Which candidate will be good for Israel, Trump or Clinton? Any president who meets an Israeli leadership that is good for Israel will also be good for Israel.
