    One Reason Americans Often are Wrong About Jews and Israel

    Why are liberal Americans often so wrong about anything connected to Jews or Israel, despite the fact that they are seemingly obsessed with these subjects? Just ask the New York Times

    Ministers of Silly Walks

    What’s truly wrong is that portfolios are given out as bribes and rewards for political support.

    “The Axis” vs. the Jews of Judea and Samaria

    Unfortunately, many Israeli politicians seem to have internalized the mindset that is promoted by the psywar campaign

    The American Front

    What is the greatest danger facing Israel today? You may be very, very surprised...

    Jordan can be Palestine

    We have reached our breaking points. There are murders and attempted murders almost every day. We try to make agreements, to improve their living conditions, to use the minimum amount of force necessary to protect ourselves. We knock on roofs, shoot rubber bullets, issue work permits, dismantle communities because there is a claim of Palestinian ownership, approve the same building plans over and over without building. They kill Jews.

    What to do about the Kites?

    The question shouldn’t be “how can we stop incendiary kites?” Rather, we should ask “how we can hurt the Gazans – o badly, so disproportionately, that they will be very sorry that they tried to burn our country.

    The Forward Revives the Massacre That Never Happened

    Allowing this hit job on Israel and the IDF to be published was no less than editorial malpractice.

    Kahane Was Right

    Kahane was absolutely right about one thing, and it is a big thing: Jews and Arabs cannot coexist as equals in Eretz Yisrael (by which I mean the land between the river and the sea). The Land of Israel must be the exclusive property of the Jewish people.

    What is it about Jews?

    Then there are those Jews, both in the diaspora or Israel, who simply see a profit in signing up with the forces of misoziony- the extreme and irrational hatred of the Jewish state.

    How Orwell’s Vision Might Become Reality

    What is worrisome is that the people running these corporations are also products of the American university system. They share the revolutionary ideology that is popular there.

    Does Ofer Cassif belong in the Knesset?

    Our legal system, and especially the Supreme Court, applies a double standard to Jews and Arabs. Precisely as is forbidden in the Torah, our judges lean toward those that they (wrongly) believe to be oppressed.

    What Do You Say to Someone Who Just Tried to Murder You?

    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...

    Hey America: Israel is Losing It Too!

    Like a broken record that plays the same phrase over and over and over: Bibi, Gantz, Lieberman, Lapid: get your acts together. It is a matter of life and death

    Keeping the Jewish State

    One thing is absolutely clear: putting an Arab party in the coalition brings the question of the relationship of the Jewish state to its Muslim Arab citizens front and center in a way that it heretofore hasn’t been.

    Non-solution to a Non-crisis

    The Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC), created and primarily funded by the American Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) has proudly announced the establishment of a “Racism Crisis Center” in Israel.

    America Switches Sides

    If Biden chose to continue Trump’s “maximum pressure” campaign, along with supporting the regional alliance against Iran, Israel’s special operations, and the strong domestic Iranian opposition, it might have been possible to bring down the regime.

    The Perverse and Vicious Weaponization of the Palestinian “Refugee”

    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.

    Nationalism vs. Empire

    One of the reasons that Israel has been so successful, despite the challenges it has faced from its external enemies and internal tensions and the complications created by its internal minority, is its sense of national purpose as the nation-state of the Jewish people.

    Israel is Stuck

    I see the continued existence of a Jewish state of Israel as a fundamental imperative. But if coexistence is impossible, and if divesting of the territories containing most of the Arabs is also impossible, what is the alternative?

    No, it isn’t Kent State on the Mediterranean*

    Hamas benefits greatly from civilian casualties, which support its narrative of victimization and provide its supporters with fodder for “lawfare” against the IDF and diplomatic sanctions against Israel.

    An Explosion of Jew-Hatred – or a Coup?

    With the 2016 presidential campaign, it seems as though there has been an explosion of Jew-hatred. Is this true? Who is responsible?

    The Iranian Counterrevolution: A Good Start

    The consequences in the region if the Iranian regime were replaced by one prioritizing economic development over foreign adventures would be immense. Israel would be overjoyed if the $ sent to Hezbollah stayed in Iran

    Take the Deal

    The status quo is unacceptable. It is expensive, it prevents the development of Judea and Samaria – despite what the Left says, there is almost no actual Jewish construction across the Green Line – and it leaves us vulnerable to terrorism. And no other proposed “solution” is practical.

    The Coming Political Crisis in the USA

    Today the USA is a candidate for a radical change away from the republic that was created when its constitution became effective in 1789, and which gradually evolved into what it is today.

    Facebook’s Essential Extremism

    Facebook will never do anything that will significantly impact its primary objective, which is to get people to spend more time scrolling through it and encountering ads.

    No, it’s NOT about “RACE”

    There is no shortage of hatred here in our region, but it is not racism. And it is mostly Jew-hatred on the Arab side. There are some Jews that hate Arabs, usually because of a bad experience, such as experiencing terrorism, but the government, media, and cultural establishment have sent a message of peace and tolerance since the beginning of the state and especially since the Oslo period of the 1990s

    How and Why we are Losing the Cognitive War

    The best way to picture our position in the cognitive struggle is that of a nation besieged. Our objective is to relieve the pressure so that we can continue with our normal lives. We are not interested in conquering and holding “enemy territory,” but we do want to destroy our enemies’ stock of cognitive weapons and crush their will to fight.

    The Fires

    While Israel burns, world media fiddles tiny violins of unctuous sympathy fro the Palestinians.

    The Post-American Age and Israel

    I don’t want to be even more negative than I have to be, but there is a fundamental cultural instability in America that seems to be becoming more intense with time.

    Getting Respect

    Everything we do in Israel either adds to the sum total of respect we get or subtracts from it. .. So it is very important for us to not only win wars, kill terrorists, and in general crush our enemies as viciously as possible, but our messaging must project strength, competence, and even aggressiveness. We must avoid the image of victimhood
