Lost And Found In Jerusalem

“Mum, you’ll never guess what happened.” My daughter Tammy’s tone of voice at the other end of the phone indicated that it wasn’t something pleasant. “Someone took my baby stroller from the bus. When I went to pick it up and get off the bus, it wasn’t there any more. I couldn’t believe it. Who would do such a thing?”

Hated Settlers Receive Leftist Foes with Water and Cookies

After being told that the Meretz activists who came to see their homes were looking to stop at a Palestinian store to buy water, residents of the Bet El neighborhood welcomed their guests with cold water and cookies.

Tel Aviv Mayor Warns Against Hareidi Majority

The mayor Tel Aviv told Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth on Friday that having an “ultra-Orthodox” majority in Israel would turn it “into a fundamentalist state like Saudi Arabia”.

Britain: Muslim ‘Cultural Sensitivity’ Runs Amok

A survey of recent events in Britain suggests that religious accommodation has given way to cultural submission. Before we know it, the 2012 London Olympics will be rescheduled because it clashes with Ramadan.

Dozens Injured in R.I. Jewish Community Bus Accident

At least 32 people were injured, one seriously, in an accident along Route 4 in East Greenwich, R.I., that involved a bus bring Jewish...

‘It All Started When an Israeli Officer Hit Back’

We would have expected the IDF brass, as well as Israel's government, to show restraint, perhaps count to 30, before throwing their own man under the media bus. But, alas, both IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned a senior IDF officer for the way he appears on a selectively edited Palestinian video on You Tube.

Feisty Jewish Former Congressman Alan Grayson Runs Red Light, Injures Two

The Jewish Congressman who became the darling of the left wing of the Democratic party but not so much with his district (he served only one term), who, in 2009, defined the Republican’s idea of health care plan as, "Don’t get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly," may require some serious health care himself. Last Saturday he ran a red light with his car, smashed into a bus and injured two people.

Palestinian School Bus in Crash, 10 Dead

Magen David Adom declared the incident a mass causality event.

Tel Aviv Mayor May Downgrade Definition of Jewish State While Simpler Solutions Exist

Citing the hardships of poor residents who can't afford cars for their Shabbat outings, Mayor Huldai ignores a wonderful new service he himself created recently for his city.

The Real Coercion In Israel

No coercion is good – religious or secular. Today, Israel suffers more from secular coercion than from religious coercion. Unlike the situation in the past, religious soldiers today are forced into combat with women soldiers.

The Next Battleground: The Eastern Wall

Begging his or her pardon in advance, the reader is asked to imagine a Muslim cemetery alongside the Western Wall. Horrific? Inconceivable? Yet this is precisely what is happening before the very eyes of the police and Jerusalem municipal authorities just across the Temple Mount, at its Eastern Wall.

Holiday Bus Service For Yeshivas: Why The Uproar?

There was a disturbing lack of balance in the reporting on the recent controversy concerning bus drivers being asked to work on Thanksgiving to transport Lakewood yeshiva students scheduled to attend school that day.

College Cafeteria Angel

I was on a city bus as it stopped for a young boy frantically waving his arms, fearful the bus might not stop for him on this snowy February afternoon. As the boy, wearing a thin jacket, boarded the bus, he searched his pockets for bus fare, found nothing, and told the bus driver he had left his money at home. “Could you please let me ride this bus?” he asked. “I promise to give you the money tomorrow. It’s so freezing outside, and it’s such a long walk home.” The bus driver refused, ordering the boy to leave the bus immediately.

Execute Terrorists On The Spot

It is perhaps the ultimate irony that the Bus 300 affair recently popped up again in the Israeli media just days after the al-Qaeda terrorist with the U.S. passport, Anwar al-Awlaki, was liquidated by a drone in Yemen, and shortly before the Netanyahu government agreed to release more than a thousand terrorists for the kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

Islam’s Bonds Of Expediency With Jerusalem

It's a well-known cliche that Jerusalem is "holy to the three main religions" - and in truth, it is not surprising. After all, the city was first holy to the Jews - and so it was inevitable that the rest of the world would ultimately jump on the bandwagon.

Fire In Jerusalem

Many unanswered questions remain surrounding the fire that broke out in the Jerusalem Forest on Sunday, burning 40 acres and sending four people to the hospital.

Flashpoint: The Shepherd Hotel

As we focus on Jerusalem as the central issue of the on-again, off-again - but always looming - negotiations with the PA, let us take a look at the latest flashpoint in our holy city: The Shepherd Hotel.

Carmel Fire Aftermath: Mourning, Assessing, Finger Pointing

JERUSALEM - In the aftermath of the deadliest fire in Israel's history, Israelis this week set to the task of burying the dead, cleaning up and figuring out what exactly went wrong - and who is to blame.

Wrong Turn?

It was 1 a.m. when my daughter Shani and her friend Tehilla took a wrong turn and found themselves traveling along a dark, isolated stretch of road outside Jerusalem. A few moments later, they noticed a young bearded man dressed in a suit and black hat flagging them down. Tehilla was surprised when Shani abruptly stopped the car. Tehilla tried to dissuade Shani from giving the young man a ride, given the late hour.

School Bus Safety

I want to make it clear that this article in no way is meant to blame any of the people involved in what appears, by all accounts, to have been a tragic accident when a Brooklyn school bus killed a 4-year-old boy in Boro Park on February 17. But as a father who knows the pain of burying his own children only too well, I believe that it is important to ask if there is any room for improvement in our school bus safety procedures.

The ‘Older and Improved’ Me

If you look at an ad or a commercial, more often than not the hype will be about the "new and improved" version of a product. The emphasis is on the fact that it's "newer" and thus better than the "earlier" version.
