With the 2016 presidential campaign, it seems as though there has been an explosion of Jew-hatred. Is this true? Who is responsible?
There is only one Jewish state. There are numerous versions of the democratic “state of all its citizens” in the world, but as time goes by and it becomes harder and harder for Jews to live in them, we are finding that Herzl, Ben-Gurion, and other Zionists were correct: a Jewish state is essential for the survival of the Jewish people
The law is stupid, and probably impossible to enforce fairly. You can’t legislate history. What happened, happened. It’s important to know what and how so perhaps it will be possible to keep it from happening again.
The position of the government is that only a small number deserve refugee status, and the rest are illegal immigrants who should leave the country one way or another. The majority of Israelis (66% of Jews and 50% of Arabs) agree.
Virtually all Palestinians believe a false narrative designed to combine with the features of the Arab and Muslim culture in such a way as to create endless, insoluble conflict with the Jewish state.
In the age of intersectionality, it is taken as a given that racism against blacks in the US and “oppression” of Palestinians by Israel are similar phenomena, and that opposition to one kind of oppression demands opposition to all. This analogy is embarrassingly stupid.
Everything in this story is surreal. Imagine: Hillel Garmi believes that Hamas is nonviolent, and Luhar Altman thinks that Israel should not have an army. And a Jewish Palestinian wishes for “many more like them.”
The biggest and most damaging error made by Israel was the massive sacrifice offered in the Oslo Accords, allowing the dying, irrelevant PLO to come back to life, and to insert its cancerous cells into her body.
Balagan: chaos, total disorder, huge mess. Borrowed from Russian.
Many Women of the Wall members applauded the passage of UNSC resolution 2334 demanding Israel return to pre-67 borders. WoW has no problem with the Kotel in Arab hands, just no separate prayers!
Do the Palestinians expect that the US will say that all of Jerusalem belongs to them? Clearly not. So why the rage, the riots, the rockets and the terrorism?
Despite all their sound and fury, the Jewish Federations no longer do very much for Israel, and they do nothing we cannot do for ourselves. We are not required to defer to them.
it only seems reasonable in view of the extreme and violent hostility of much of the Arab population of the area to Israel and Jews, that Israel should follow Pakistan’s example and exclude “enemies of the state” from citizenship.
In effect, the money given to Gaza was converted into weapons. And that provides a way to solve the problem: we can convert it back.
Why have the Arab nations have allowed the issue of Palestinian refugees to continue? One simple reason which I call the First Principle of Arab Leadership: it is always more important to hurt Jews than to help Arabs.
Ha’aretz speaks for the small, even tiny, minority of Jewish Israelis that make up the extreme Left. But it has far greater influence than its circulation figures indicate because its stories work their way into talking points in world capitals.
By recognizing Israeli sovereignty in the Golan Heights, President Trump struck a blow against the idiotic principle of “land for peace”
Jacobs clearly sees himself as the Jewish Martin Luther King Jr., and would like nothing more than to get arrested on behalf of his struggle. But there is almost nothing in common between the civil rights movement of the 1960s and Jacob’s attempts to provoke confrontations at one of Judaism’s holiest sites
Why should Israel be paying-with land and concessions-for things it should be getting as a matter of course?
Jew-hatred is often compared to a virus because of the way it spreads and mutates, but I prefer the analogy of diabolical possession because of the way it twists its victims and causes them to commit acts of unspeakable evil.
I felt sorry and sad when I saw the 16-year old Arab girl lying in the road after she was shot. She was someone’s...
We’ll prevail. It will be terrible for us, but more terrible for our enemies. Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel was not reconstituted after thousands of years to be lost after only 70.
The Left, having been emasculated at the ballot box, now uses the Court to achieve its aims and it is attempting to do so again with the appointment of Rabbi Karim to the post of IDF Chief Rabbi
Nobody in Jewish Israel wants to say that the ideal of coexistence with the 20% of our population that are Arabs is unobtainable, that we are getting farther away from it as time goes by rather than closer. But that’s how it seems today.
Perhaps decades ago we could have simply wiped out the PLO and reached some kind of understanding with traditional leaders among the Palestinian Arabs. Perhaps not. But today the “Palestinians” have taken on the mantle of Amalek. They must be defeated and disarmed, and those who see themselves as our enemies must be permanently expelled from the land of Israel.
