The State Of The Jews

10 Tishri 5773 – September 25, 2012
How well are Jews - and non-Jews - doing with regard to the Jewish state? If the question focuses on the highbrow world, and particularly its predominant persuasion of liberalism (or what is still called by that name), the answer that emerges from Edward Alexander's new book is: not very well.

Palestinians’ Day In The Sun Appears To Be Waning

19 Tammuz 5771 – July 20, 2011
It's been a bumpy road for the Palestinians lately. Recent staged spectacles that were supposed to whip up sympathy for them and put Israel in a bad light again - the Nakba Day (May 15) and Naksa Day (June 4) marches on Israel's borders, the flotilla, the flytilla - have been disappointments at best, if not outright flops. And the Palestinians' long-hyped independent-statehood bid at the UN in September is meeting growing opposition from the West.

Bashing Of Glenn Beck Goes From Bad To Worse

28 Sivan 5771 – June 29, 2011
When Glenn Beck's upcoming Jerusalem rally was first announced, he saidit would be called "Restore Courage" - modeled on his "Restoring Honor" rally last year in Washington that drew half a million.

Terrorist Unity And The Push For Statehood

30 Nisan 5771 – May 4, 2011
The day after last week's announcement of a Fatah-Hamas rapprochement in Cairo, Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas said he would keep pursuing peace talks with Israel. Almost concurrently, top Hamas official Mahmoud al-Zahar said Hamas would stick to its stance of neither recognizing nor negotiating with Israel, but "if Fatah wants to negotiate with Israel over trivialities, they can."

‘Winds Of Change’ Should Not Include A Palestinian State

10 Nisan 5771 – April 13, 2011
"With the winds of change blowing through the Arab world, it's more urgent than ever that we try to seize the opportunity to create a peaceful solution between the Palestinians and the Israelis," President Obama saidlast week after meeting with Israeli president Shimon Peres.

Thomas Friedman – Just Another Face In The Arab Mob

19 Adar I 5771 – February 23, 2011
Even without the anticipated passage of two Iranian warships through the Suez Canal, it was a week that rattled Israelis' nerves. It began on with a stern lecture by New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman that got considerable play in the Israeli media.

On Egypt, Short-Lived Unity In Israel

6 Adar I 5771 – February 9, 2011
Last week Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedlyallowed about 800 Egyptian troops to deploy around Sharm el-Sheikh at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula.

Obama: Blaming Israel First

10 Kislev 5771 – November 17, 2010
"This kind of activity is never helpful when it comes to peace negotiations," President Obama saidlast week at a press conference in Indonesia. He was referring to the approval issued in Israel for building 1,300 homes in two East Jerusalem neighborhoods.

Tzipi Livni’s Irresponsible Opposition

5 Heshvan 5771 – October 13, 2010
Even a one- or two-month extension of Israel's ten-month settlement moratorium, senior Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat has announced, won't suffice. Nothing less than a total freeze throughout the duration of Israeli-Palestinian talks would be acceptable.
