Why the Peace Process is Dead

30 Sivan 5772 – June 20, 2012
Recently, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas added two more conditions for resuming the stalled peace talks: first, that Israel allow him to import more weapons for his police forces in the West Bank, and second, the release of Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails. Abbas is in fact searching for any excuse not to return to the negotiating table with Israel.

The West, Iran, and the ‘Process’ Trap

13 Sivan 5772 – June 3, 2012
Few things ought to be as urgent as keeping Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Yet the West – led from the front by the United States – has fallen into the "peace process" trap that considers talk to be progress and, once a conversation has begun, that there is nothing worse than stopping it: Talk about what you've talked about. Talk about what you won't talk about. Talk about talking again. Talk again. Repeat.

The Bat Mitzvah Club: For A Unique Time In A Girl’s...

9 Sivan 5772 – May 29, 2012
The Bat Mitzvah Club is designed for Jewish girls as they approach their bat mitzvah birthday. A Jewish girl's bat mitzvah birthday reflects a major turning point in her life and this club emphasizes that a bat mitzvah is a process, not a self-contained event that transpires in one day.

Israelis To Coast Through US Security – and Vice Versa

29 Iyyar 5772 – May 21, 2012
Frequent travelers to the US from Israel – and vice versa - will soon have a smoother time making the landing, thanks to Israel’s entry into the US Global Entry Program.

Whither Israel’s New Government?

25 Iyyar 5772 – May 16, 2012
Prime Minister Netanyahu’s decision to form a coalition government with Kadima and cancel planned early elections has inspired endless speculation as to his motives. Some maintain he was seeking a unity government in order to bolster his position with regard to Iran. Others point to his desire to be better able to deal with certain domestic issues such as election reform and changes to the Tal Law.

J.E. Dyer: You’re Killing Me, Mitt

18 Iyyar 5772 – May 10, 2012
When Romney speaks of the US auto industry recovering, he is speaking in the language of big, dirigiste government, accepting at face value the short-term effect of a bailout process that has served mainly to perpetuate unprofitable but politically entrenched conditions. It guarantees that more subsidies will be needed down the road.

ICG: Current Peace Process Based on Delusions, Will Never Bring Peace

17 Iyyar 5772 – May 8, 2012
A report titled "The Emperor Has No Clothes: Palestinians and the End of the Peace Process" was issued this week by the International Crisis Group, asking: "Does anybody still believe in the Middle East Peace Process?" It claims the current process, even if it yields some local progress, "will not bring about a durable and lasting peace.

Cartoon Rehab: It’s Miller Time, Sort Of

7 Iyyar 5772 – April 29, 2012
Today's cartoon is from Al-Watan (Qatar), from way back in May 13, 2003. The U.S. and Israel are shown eating from two sides of an apple that represents “the Arab states.” According to the middle-east-info.org, where we found it, this cartoon is noteworthy because it was published in Qatar, home to the Al Jazeera TV network. Qatar is considered by many in the U.S. State Department to be a U.S. ally and a relatively moderate state.

Cartoon Rehab: Toon Gets Tattooed

5 Iyyar 5772 – April 27, 2012
This one took the Photoshop equivalent of plastic surgery. The depiction of both the vampire-like Jewish person and the dead child in his arms is so vile, I had to fix every little aspect of the image.

Cartoon Rehab: The Cleansing Power of Baseball

4 Iyyar 5772 – April 26, 2012
The trick with this nasty but very well drawn cartoon, in which the Jews are depicted as a creature reminiscent of Sigourney Weaver's Alien, speaking to a wise, old Muslim sage, was to remove both religious symbols. Once those were out of the way, it became a cute setup for some sort of vaudeville-style sketch ("Who's on first" comes to mind).

The Community Organizer-In-Chief

4 Iyyar 5772 – April 25, 2012
On recent occasions we have noted that several of President Obama’s public actions reflect a disdain for the traditional American view of the governmental process. Most stunning perhaps was his threat to the Supreme Court that it had better come out his way on Obamacare, or else. Having steamrolled the legislation through Congress (urging, it will be recalled, violations of longstanding procedures if necessary) he issued his challenge to the Supreme Court despite its constitutional duties to pass on the law’s constitutionality.

Cartoon Rehab: Fixing the Crucifix

2 Iyyar 5772 – April 24, 2012
This cartoon, by Syrian artist Tishrin, was published September 22, 2011, and, to be fair, as anti-Israeli cartoons go it is relatively tame. But I was delighted by the opportunity to turn Tishrin's clever (albeit kinda trite) use of the letter T as cross, into the letter T as clothesline.

Cartoon Rehab: Oh, Go Ahead, Surrender, You Know You Want To…

1 Iyyar 5772 – April 23, 2012
Welcome to the Jewish Press Online Cartoon Rehabilitation Project (JPOCRP), or, in short (suggested by our colleague Rafi Harkham) Cartoon Rehab. We found this cartoon on the ADL website. They say it was originally published in Oman, April 12, 2012, and the original text, written in blood, says: "We Will Never Surrender."

1 Iyyar 5772 – April 22, 2012
First obtained and published by Haaretz, the transcripts reveal his motivations for facilitating terrorist attacks against Israeli targets, his fears of losing the Palestinian street, and the extent of Arafat's autonomy.

Land Reclamation Activists Score Jerusalem Victory

27 Nisan 5772 – April 18, 2012
"The eviction is going smoothly. The land belongs to a Jewish owner, he purchased it in the 80's and it is registed in the land registry. We did a court process to evict, the judge gave a judgement, after that they appealed to the disrict court, and even the disrict court denied the appeal. We went to the Office of Execution [Hotza'a Lepoal], and now we are doing this eviction"

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

12 Nisan 5772 – April 4, 2012
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."

Whither Kadima?

6 Nisan 5772 – March 29, 2012
Tzipi Livni must decide on her first step. If she comes up short on the number of MKs needed to break away or if she decides against a split, she will most likely resign rather than stay on under Mofaz’s leadership. Whether or not Livni leaves, Kadima will break into two camps- those who will support Mofaz and those who will try to find another political home.

Iron Dome Deployed in Tel Aviv Metropolitan Area

3 Nisan 5772 – March 26, 2012
There are currently three operational and actively deployed batteries, which are meant for deployment in the south of Israel, while the fourth battery is expected to become fully operational next week, and is intended for the Tel Aviv area.

Lessons in Propaganda: Ha’aretz Bungles Numbers in Effort to Squash ‘Settler’...

2 Nisan 5772 – March 25, 2012
Anyone with a basic knowledge of third-grade math will raise an eyebrow at the mathematical gyrations displayed by the Israeli daily Ha'aretz regarding the efforts to block the certification of Ariel College, located east of the 67 armistice line, as a full-fledged university. The numbers in their report on academicians' objections to the new facility just don't jive.

‘Hamas Will not Give Up Armed Resistance’

18 Adar 5772 – March 12, 2012
Hamas leader Osama Hamdan, the top representative of Hamas in Lebanon and a member of the organization's politburo, told Quds Press in an interview...
