Religious Settlers Face Pervasive Double Standard

11 Iyyar 5772 – May 2, 2012
For anyone with historical memory the expulsion of Jews – by the Romans, English, French, Spaniards, Nazis, and Muslims – instantly evokes tragic episodes in Jewish history. Now the state of Israel expels Jews from their homes. Something is amiss in Zion.

Ex-Chief of Internal Security: Netanyahu, Barak, Infected by Messianic Fervor

7 Iyyar 5772 – April 28, 2012
Yuval Diskin, who last year retired as head of the Shin Bet, Israel's internal security agency, on Friday used exceptionally strong language to criticize his former boss, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, accusing him of being caught up in a messianic fervor about the Iranian nuclear program, a fervor which he implied was more befitting the Iranian leadership.

Likud MKs, Central Committee, Ulpana Hill Residents, in Pushback Against Court,...

2 Iyyar 5772 – April 23, 2012
Israel's Supreme Court and the Attorney General are showing a kind of zeal one normally attributes to religious fanatics. Rather than pursuing a pragmatic, financial compensation to the claimant, as is normal in similar civil cases, both the high court and the AG appear hell bent on getting Justice. The Likud rank and file are preparing to do war with these two enemies of Israel's democracy.

We’re All Feiglinists, Especially Feiglin

On Saturday, Defense Minister Ehud Barak mocked two Likud ministers who criticized his plan to demolish Ulpana Hill, saying they caught "a severe case of ‘Feiglinism.’” Then, one after another, Likud MKs paid homage to the new term and congratulated Moshe Feiglin on his tenacity in upholding the principles of Feiglinism.

12 Nisan 5772 – April 4, 2012
Matar was responding to an emergency SMS alerting Judea and Samaria Jews—most of whom were busy with pre-Passover cleaning—of the unexpected forced evacuation, less than one day after Israel's government appeared to be deciding to await verification of the sale of the house in Hebron to its new owners. She dropped everything and rushed over.

Ya’alon Wants Barak Removed from Decision Making on Hebron House, Jewish...

Deputy Prime Minister Ya'acov Ya'alon accused Defense Minister Ehud Barak of "starting up fires," after Netanyahu and his cabinet had decided that the newly settled Machpela House, at the Cave of the Patriarchs, would be evacuated only if it is proven that it had been purchased illegally. According to Ya'alon, Barak is purposefully "sticking up the process, not only in Hebron, but all across the Jewish communities."

A Political Comeback Attempt

18 Heshvan 5772 – November 14, 2011
When Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak attempted to break the link between the Har Bracha Hesder Yeshiva and the IDF (Israel Defense Forces), few of us were surprised. Ehud Barak is the head of the Labor Party who seems to be using this anti-religious "weapon" in order to make a political comeback for his failing leftist party. His anti-religious position is well known, and his attempt to discredit Rabbi Eliezer Melamed and the Hesder Yeshiva movement is not unexpected. In the past, other politicians have used their opposition to religion to improve their political status, and Barak knows that he and his party are falling apart.

Stop Playing With Our State

12 Adar I 5771 – February 16, 2011
Next month I am due to participate in a London debate on the question: Is it OK for Jews to criticize Israel? One of my opponents is a leader of the Peace Now movement who, in a previous debate about the UK's academic boycott, steered the discussion to his own army service (as an IDF spokesman, no less) and promptly branded Israeli border guards as "paramilitary thugs."

White House Was Foolish In Overestimating Barak’s Pull

14 Shevat 5771 – January 19, 2011
The White House was misled by Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak. And that does not surprise me. Publicly, the White House is saying that nothing in the relationship between Barak, who just this week left the Labor Party to form a new political faction, and the administration has changed. Privately, the White House is expressing disappointment, frustration and even anger.

Netanyahu In Tight Political Bind Over U.S. Initiatives

28 Tishri 5771 – October 6, 2010
JERUSALEM - Following reports of an unprecedented U.S. offer of a host of assurances in return for a 60-day extension of the settlement building freeze, some political analysts are wondering why Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has not grabbed the deal with both hands.

Former Israeli Chief Justice Looms Large At Kagan Hearings

18 Tammuz 5770 – June 30, 2010
NEW YORK - It was an unexpected development in an otherwise relatively mundane U.S. Supreme Court confirmation process. Failed Reagan nominee Robert Bork grabbed headlines last week when he spoke out against President Obama's nomination of Elena Kagan to the high court. At the top of his complaint list: As dean of Harvard Law School, Kagan once referred to former Israeli Chief Justice Aharon Barak as her "judicial hero."
