It is ludicrous to argue that the settlements are an “obstacle to peace,” because they were not an obstacle to Israel offering the Palestinians a state on three separate occasions.
It just so happens, this year saw significant archaeological finds establishing the historical Jewish connection between Israel and Jerusalem, contradicting campaigns to delegitimize Jewish history.
It is little known that hundreds of thousands of Arab squatters in ''Arab East Jerusalem'' live on land still owned by the Jewish National Fund.
FirstOneThrough, despite fewer posts in 2016, saw its number of visitors jump by 35% Facebook, The Jewish Press and Twitter were key reasons
His art is unique and vibrant, his subjects Torah, Kedushah and Eretz Yisrael.
At the start of the Syrian conflict, the most logical and appropriate action would have been Israel, the strong, local superpower, intervening to prevent the calamity-Israel didn't adopt this strategy
FACT: The only state without 1 town named for a biblical site is Obama’s home state, Hawaii, adding a touch of irony to the lame-duck POTUS' refraining from vetoing the UN resolution condemning Israel
The most abhorrent aspect of the UNSC resolution is the fact that it tries to give control of all Jewish holy sites in the “occupied” areas to the Palestinians.
For those who support a Jewish, Democratic Israel, committed to civil rights for all its citizens- including the right to not be murdered-David Friedman is the right choice for US Ambassador to Israel
Real moderation, tolerance and co-existence on the Arab side, with an accurate Western understanding of the historical, legal & social factors perpetuating the situation, would make all the difference
Trump’s win threatens the template of “democracy” long promoted in mainstream media by exposing the abysmal failure of American journalism, specifically its inability or refusal to report objectively.

Kerry’s speech was a few tossed bones to Israel while again stabbing Israel in the back with a proposal that endangers the Jewish state.
Kerry and the Obama team won't acknowledge that Israel is the victim and the Palestinians are the aggressors nor recognize the difference between democratic Israel and the terror-promoting PA regime.
