Israeli Foreign Minister Replies to Condemnation of Jewish Growth

5 Heshvan 5773 – October 21, 2012

Palestinian Statehood, Terror, And The U.S. Presidential Election (First of Two...

2 Heshvan 5773 – October 17, 2012
President Obama and Governor Romney strongly disagree on many issues but the daylight between them is especially great in the imminent matter of Palestinian statehood. For his part, the president still believes in a two-state solution, and in a corollary willingness of the Palestinian side to negotiate fairly. His opponent is unambiguous in a fully contrary insistence that the Palestinians are not interested in peace.

The Way It Really Was: George W. Bush Pushed For A...

26 Tishri 5773 – October 11, 2012
Today, conventional wisdom maintains that the George W. Bush administration had been a good friend to Israel and, unlike the Obama administration, had fought mightily against the creation of a Palestinian state. With this “wisdom” in mind, I ask readers to consider the following column of mine that originally appeared in The Jewish Press in August 2007.

Incoming Fire on the Northern Border

12 Tishri 5773 – September 27, 2012
In the past hour, mortar fire erupted on Israel's northern border, causing explosions in what appear, for now, to be open fields. No injuries, but some property damage that's not yet detailed in the news here. It's reported that the fire is a kind of spillover from the barbarism unfolding over the past year inside Syria: the source is believed to be forces of the Syrian army "engaged" - as the journalists like to put it - with rebel forces near Syria's border with Israel.

Israel, ‘Palestine,’ and the Law Of War (First of two parts)

10 Tishri 5773 – September 25, 2012
For the moment, at least, a state of Palestine does not exist. Historically, of course, such a country has never existed. Nonetheless, current supporters of Palestinian statehood (sometimes Jews as well as Arabs) have discovered substantial practical benefit in persistently referring to Israel and "Palestine" as if there were some existing legal equivalence between them. Indeed, repeated again and again, ritualistically, as if it were an incantation, such propagandistic usage is already transforming "Palestine" into a jurisprudential fait accompli.

What If Israel’s ‘Peace Partners’ Actually Prefer War?

Remembering and Forgetting on 9/11

25 Elul 5772 – September 12, 2012
Despite President Obama's assertions at the 9-11 memorial that the fight against terror is only against al Qaeda, it was still good to hear him speaking about the enduring nature of a nation’s memory of its terror victims. Here in Israel, we (the bloggers behind This Ongoing War) waged a campaign for years to require the Jerusalem municipality to remember Jerusalem’s victims of terror.

No Red Lines: The Prime Minister Strikes Back

25 Elul 5772 – September 11, 2012

5 Elul 5772 – August 23, 2012
Haim Bibas, Modi'in mayor: "Arab states and various organizations have tried to harm the legitimacy and sovereignty of Israel in every available forum.

Justice for the Kurds?

3 Elul 5772 – August 21, 2012
Much ink has been spilled about the desirability or even the inevitability of a separate State for Palestinians, whose identity stems from the middle of the 20th century, but what has been much less discussed by the international community -- and for the most part ignored -- is a similar claim by the Kurds, a people with a truly separate ethnic identity as well as a long history.
