The Audacity of Redemption

Rabbi Shimshon HaKohen Nadel
Monday, April 2nd, 2012

It has been said ‘It is easier to take the Jew out of the Exile, than to take the Exile out of the Jew’. While in Egypt, the Jewish people could not even hear Hashem’s promise of Redemption because of their “shortness of spirit.” Their bondage wasn’t merely a physical bondage, but a mental one. And so, while still in Egypt, Hashem began the process of taking the Jew out of the psychology of Exile, ridding him of his slave mentality.

Rubin Reports: Betrayal Glorified – The Bizarre Jewish Movement to Destroy Israel by Pretending to Save It

Barry Rubin
Sunday, April 1st, 2012

The diagnosis being offered by Peter Beinart and his ilk is false and slanderous toward Israel and the solution being presented is false and dangerous to Israel.

Friday, March 30th, 2012

The housewives turned their homes upside down, the matzah bakery became alive, tailors and cobblers prepared to meet the seasonal rush, and the children worked themselves into a pitch of excitement, which they could not have endured had they had to wait for the seder night one day longer than they already did.

At the Kalandia checkpoint, where Palestinian youths have been taunting Israeli security forces all day, activity fizzled down after TV cameras had left. Jordan mass sit-in remained 6 miles from the border. Lebanon’s army restrained Iranian and Palestinian busloads of demonstrators. In this region things can change rapidly, but we’re off to the mikvah, to prepare for Shabbat. Here’s hoping for a peaceful evening.

Yori Yanover
Friday, March 30th, 2012

Israeli Deputy Ambassador to the US Baruch Bina addressed thousands of J Street supporters last week, and his appearance had been hailed as a thawing of official Israeli approach to the pro-Palestinian organization. They were in for a big surprise. How big a surprise? The Baruch Bina speech has been removed from J Street’s official history. It never happened. But we have it…
