Brave words from an Arab who finds much in the Arab world disgusting, and much to be admired in 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.
It is not Israel that needs to change. It is not Israel that needs to be boycotted. It is the Arab world that needs to have a deep look at itself, how it behaves towards its own peoples and towards others, and how it needs to change.
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.
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!
Considering that Israel has a consistent history of being extremely careful to avoid civilian casualties, a friend such as Canada would be expected to give Israel the benefit of the doubt, and not to make unproven accusations.
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.
Levy has the power to state the truth, but if he did, he would be just an average journalist that few people would pay attention to. So, he chooses to play to the large anti-Semitic crowd – look at me, he implies, I am an Israeli and a Jew, and therefore your best ally against the state that dares to be Jewish.
Ironically, the area where Christians and Muslims most need atonement and self-reflection is in the way that they have treated Jews over the centuries. Unfortunately, they lack a holiday like Yom Kippur
In the 69 years of this history, Israelis’ support for the two-state solution, however, has slowly eroded. The main reason is the realization that the Palestinians never wanted it and are not likely to ever want it.
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. It is time for supporters of Israel to stop the infighting and to direct all their efforts in the direction where it is needed, in support of Israel.
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.
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.
Lebanon’s friends are the type of friends who make you think that you don’t need enemies. Ironically, except for its "enemy" Israel.
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
Israeli Arabs are noy affected negatively by the new law
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
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.
There is no sign that anti-Semitism will decline anytime soon, so there is every reason to increase our efforts in fighting it. And for each of us, that means attacking it at home, not at the neighbor’s home.
The 2006 election of Hamas was not a mistake that Gazans have learned from, Hamas remains the most popular party in Gaza. Gazans therefore cannot be considered the helpless victims of terrorists,
