After 69 years of obstructionism, the Palestinian leadership no longer deserves a seat at the table. It is time for Israel to behave as the victor of the conflict, and to win the peace.

Supporters of Israel, Unite!

Supporters of Israel are badly divided on several fronts. These divisions weaken a group that is already fighting an uphill battle against opponents of Israel who are far more numerous, better funded, and better organized.

If countries like Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and others cannot put aside their hatred of Israel, or any other country, at least for the duration of the Olympics, they should not be allowed to compete.

Muslims should be Thankful to Have ANY Access to Al-Aqsa Mosque

If Israel had done what was in all fairness its right to do, Muslims would not today have had to worry about going through metal detectors to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque. They would not have to worry because no Muslim would be allowed on that ground and Al-Aqsa would have been desecrated and dismantled.

An Open Challenge to Aoun: Be a Leader!

ezbullah’s claim of defending Lebanon against Israel and their other claim of liberating Palestine are both bogus, simply excuses to allow them to dominate Lebanon with the support of Iran. So stop being a puppet, and be a leader!

Jews Should Live Wherever they Wish

Jews should be able to live wherever they choose to live, period, including France, including Judea and Samaria, and even including the Arab world. Anyone who says otherwise is excusing and reinforcing anti-Semitism,

Time for Israel to End the Occupation

West Bank annexation means losing the country's Jewish majority or imposing apartheid; inaction is simply too costly

Visiting Israel is a Privilege not a Right

Israel has absolutely no obligation to let BDS activists enter the country. There is no automatic right to enter any country that one wishes to enter. It is a privilege that must be earned.

Brave words from an Arab who finds much in the Arab world disgusting, and much to be admired in Israel
