Extending sovereignty is not a land grab. It is the beginning of a disengagement.
I think it is the first stage of a disengagement plan.
Why are there so many articles about 2 million Gazans who don't have adequate water and so few about the other 72 million people in the region who have the exact same (or worse) problem?
Mondoweiss, being Mondoweiss, tries to find a way to tie everything to hating Israel:
77-year old female Jewish Professor in Pittsburgh Sues after FALSE Accusations of Sexual Harassment...
Newman is being attacked by BDSers because she has been outspoken and articulate about how these new "social justice warriors" are enabling antisemitism as well as racism and sexism.
Love of Israel is in no way contradictory to love of America. American Jews are very appreciative to live in a country that is not only welcoming of Jews but also a staunch ally of Israel. The pride of being American is part and parcel of the pride of being a Jew and a Zionist in America.
Literally every Jewish shrine in the Holy Land is claimed by the Palestinians to be their own, which is a hell of a coincidence.
So the Left can tell us what antisemitism is and the Forward cannot? Because according to them, there is simply no such thing as any antisemitism that is not from the far Right, and mentioning any other type outrages them. Arab antisemitism is "protesting for Palestinian freedom" no matter how many times the word "Jew" is used. Attacks on Jews in Brooklyn are twisted to somehow be Trump's fault
Let's be clear: the only people who are upset over a President, or anyone, saying that people should love Israel more are people who hate Israel.
Imagine how ANTI-ISRAEL she would want the UN to be?
As far as who can do Bibi's job - at the moment, no one, but Bibi would be gone one way or another eventually, and I have faith in Israel's democracy
Ashrawi: Not only should Britain apologize for the declaration and to immediately recognize a Palestinian state on the so-called 1967 borders, but Britain should compensate the Palestinians for their suffering.
Netanyahu is a politician, and for the past decade, he's been a very good one. His political instincts are what helps him accomplish his vision for Israel. His vision for Israel is a state where the Arabs are treated as equals and given all the same opportunities as Jews in a Jewish state.
Ironically, they cannot even pronounce the letter "P"
This J Street panel was a disgrace for a supposedly Jewish, supposedly pro-Israel organization that pretends to care about antisemitism.
What sort of government do I want? How far to the right does my ideology go? But just how far right they go, is always a question for me.
They dominate the Forward's entire site; they dominate the NYT's editorial and news sections, JTA gives them plenty of coverage yet they claim they are not allowed to speak.
David Halbfinger of the New York Times wrote a veritable infomercial for J-Street in his story about their trip to Israel
Only when Palestinians understand that the world has changed and that they can no longer rely on automatic, reflexive support from their fellow Arabs can they even start to consider going back to the table with Israel.
Malki will never be a statistic but an inspiration. And in remembering her, we also realize that she and the savage who engineered her death are not—as several dull journalists said to me at various points in the weeks after the massacre—two sides of the same coin
I cannot even find an anecdote of Jews who somehow managed to sneak into Egypt, Syria or Lebanon, which is not proof it didn't happen...but if it did, it doesn't sound like it was anything close to these Arab countries sheltering European Jews.
Tlaib's words go beyond mere whitewashing these historic facts. She is not only claiming that Palestinians deserve credit for helping Jews after the Holocaust. She is also saying that Palestinians were Holocaust victims themselves, by giving up "their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence" for Jews to have a place to go.
Could it be that the softening of the Gulf Arab states towards Israel, and Trump's embrace of Israel's side in the Golan and elsewhere, is injecting some realpolitik into Lebanese thinking?
Too many groups forget that Jews have rights, too.
Tthe Dome of the Rock is ubiquitous in Palestinian political life today because the British thought they would get goodwill from the Arabs of Palestine if they helped repair the long-ignored site. Instead, it was used to fuel antisemitism and create Palestinian nationalism - which were, and remain, joined at the hip.
this statement includes an assertion that every member of the three major monotheistic faiths should have full access to their holy spaces in order to worship there. Which means that Jews have the full right not just to visit but even to pray at the Temple Mount, the holiest spot in Judaism.
Reporting on the fighting as if it is a traditional war plays into the hands of Hamas, since controlling the news cycle is not peripheral but essential in cognitive war. While the West may just be waking up to the importance of cognitive warfare, Israel has been fighting it for a long time
J-Street is stunningly hypocritical: It brags that it is the largest "pro-Israel lobby" in the US and that its money influences Congress!
At least 85% of those killed were terrorists. The mainstream media did not share this "trifling" fact
The Women's March is paying an antisemitic, anti-gay, anti-white, misogynist hate group - while at the same time pretending to adhere to Unity Principles that are against everything Nation of Islam stands for.
