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.
The Israeli paradox is that while Israel is thriving as a nation, it has no way to achieve a permanent status as a state whose borders are internationally recognized. It is stuck in limbo.
Metal detectors are used in many places in the world, including airports of course, but also Muslim places of worship. So why the big deal at Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem?
Instead of insisting on the failed and inane strategy of fighting Israel, the Arab world should realize that working with Israel is the answer.
While the Lebanese terrorists’ phenomenal arsenal pointed at Israel is indication enough, the whipping up of hatred may be an even stronger indication that Hezbullah is itching for another war with Israel
As long as Palestinians are led by terrorists, reared to hate, and paid to be terrorists, the probability that peace will come from negotiations with the Palestinians is exactly zero
Until Palestinian leadership accepts a Jewish state, there is no reasonable alternative to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank. Unconditionally leaving the West Bank into the hands of terrorists obsessed with killing Jews is not an option.
I am not embarrassed that we Arabs lost. We deserved to lose, and I cannot even think of the massacres that may have ensued if we won. I am embarrassed that we started the war in the first place.
Edy Cohen, was not born in Israel. He is a refugee from Lebanon. Unlike many refugees, he is not waiting for handouts or international sympathy. He has made a life for himself in Israel and advocates for Jewish refugees from Arab lands.
What makes someone an anti-Semite? Stupidity? Dark souls filled by all-consuming hatred? Probably a combination of both, but that doesn't matter because anti-Semites have and will always exist.
If Israel annexes the West Bank, the Jewish majority in Israel would be reduced immediately from 75% to about 57%, and the Arab minority in Israel would nearly double from 21% to about 40%
I am an Arab, lucky enough to be one of the few Arabs who live far enough, both physically and intellectually, from Arab thugs to be able to speak my mind. So I will speak my mind.
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.
By betraying the Jews of Israel, Christians are not only continuing a long history of anti-Semitism but also undermining tBy betraying the Jews of Israel, the world’s Christians are betraying the only state in the Middle East that protects Christians from extinction and are undermining their own heritage. heir own heritage.
Whatever the future holds, whether it is two states, three states, a single state, or a confederation of states, the futures of Israelis and Palestinians will be associated and interdependent
If Lebanon had prevented terrorist attacks against Israel, not one bullet would have been fired between the countries. Today, Lebanon would be enjoying the benefit of diplomatic relations with Israel
While the Palestinian cause, sadly, is still today dominated by non-Palestinians, the Zionist movement has benefited from being driven by Jews and not by foreign parties and it must remain this way.
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.
Jordan integrated some refugees. The Arabs showed the world, as they continue to do, that their hatred towards each other and towards Jews is far greater than any concept of purported Arab solidarity.
European leaders refuse to face the reality that the Palestinians are led by a charlatan and pretend that organizing a peace conference will deliver the ever elusive peace agreement
I oppose Jewish settlement building in the West Bank because Israel is allowing the settlements to be used as an excuse by corrupt Palestinian leaders to demonize Israel and to reject peace.
