Palestinian Groups Behind Omar-Tlaib Canceled Trip anti-Semitic, Linked to Terror

Publications put out by the group Miftah use highly politicized language, accusing Israel of “massacres,” “apartheid,” “summary executions” of Palestinian youth and “Judaizing” Jerusalem, according to NGO Monitor.

The Longest-Lasting Conspiracy Theory

The lies about the State of Israel are amplified in the West through the "mainstream media"... Churches join in, and of course the United Nations, as well as so-called human rights organizations where pretty well anything goes

UK and US: Toxic Politics

What neither side of this transatlantic tag-team seems to realise is that by putting into words their apparent hatred of the West and its allies, they are exposing themselves as antagonists of the very freedoms that enable them to speak or have economic opportunity without fear of reprisal -- freedoms they would never have in Somalia, the Palestinian territories, or many of the tyrannies entrenched on the planet.

Democracy in Israel: Alive and well

Disregard feral, foul and false talk that slanders Israel. Israeli democracy is not “shattering” nor are we facing the “darkest days Israel has known.” These are venal, absurd claims – spewed from the mouths of desperate politicos on the extremist fringe.

Who’s Funding Illegal Palestinian Settlements in Area C— Confronting the History

“Area C,” which comprises some 60 percent of the West Bank, also known as Judea and Samaria, is making news these days. This time, the hot button issue is illegal Palestinian settlements sprouting across the region, shredding the last vestige of the Oslo Accords, which, for a generation, propelled the “two-state solution.”

The Tlaib-Omar Trainwreck: A First Assessment

The Israeli decision to ban US RepsTlaib and Omar on the basis of their support for BDS has elicited a firestorm of comments from Israel’s detractors and supporters. The decision, warranted but unnecessary, illustrates the deep dysfunction that has come to characterize US-Israeli relations. The poisoning of American attitudes initiated by President Obama and the hysteria that accompanies everything associated with Trump set the stage for Tlaib and Omar to create a lose-lose situation for Israel. Their trip would have resulted in condemnations at the end, or worse. But the manner in which Israeli public diplomacy failed to make its case shows bad situational awareness and crisis management that was unable to overcome the Congresswomen’s bad faith or Trump’s unwanted intervention.

Israel’s Decision Comes from a Position of Strength

Israel’s democracy has proven time and again that it can withstand any criticism, whether from grassroots activists to nation-state leaders. Israel sent a strong message to Omar and Tlaib, and other BDS supporters: if you promote boycotts of Israel, then Israel boycotts you

Israel’s Strategic Goal in Syria

Israel’s shadow war in Syria is based on the strategic objective of convincing the Islamic Republic that its investment in a war machine is going to waste. Iran has so far chosen to weather the strikes and shift tactics without abandoning its Syria project.

Ha’aretz Columnist Mangles History, Facts, and International Law

In conclusion, rather than dabbling in international law, of which he evidently knows very little, as well as in shallow, partisan political advocacy, Colonel Arieli should stick to his professional field of being a soldier.

Israel Should have Ignored Trump’s Pressure on Omar and Tlaib

Banning members of Congress, even anti-Semitic BDS supporters, from entering the country is a grave mistake that will only help Israel’s foes.

Anti-Semites Can Stay Out

The notion that a democracy must lay out the welcome mat to all comers defies logic. Israel’s democratically elected government made a decision that it believed to be in the country’s best interest.

The ‘Opposite Spies’ Among Us

No matter what leftist Jewish communal organizations promote publicly, the majority of their staff and lay leadership consist of “opposite spies” professing love of Israel loudly yet privately holding Israel in contempt and working to undermine her security, economy, and religiosity.

Stop Ignoring Middle Eastern Jews

Remember that the Jewish world is centered in the East. It is in the East that the Jewish people began, and where today, in Israel, our peoplehood is maintained and continues to blossom.

Can Arabs in Gaza Revolt Against Hamas?

The voices emerging from the Gaza Strip are anguished and reflect the Palestinians' growing sense of disillusionment with Hamas. These voices, however, are still small in numbers. Hamas's brutal methods of suppression and torture have deterred a large number of Palestinians from speaking out. These voices will grow only if the international community heeds them and calls out Hamas for its brutal crackdown on Palestinians.

Dvir Sorek, 19: An Interview with the Murdered Teenager’s Uncle

My father and my sister’s son were both fighters for Jewish independence and freedom. The loss can never be replaced, but we don’t let it break our spirits.

What Happened To The Marketplace Of Ideas?

Unfortunately, there are those on the left who believe that only ideas with which they identify qualify for entrance into the marketplace.

A Two-State Solution Still Lurks In The Background

By denying the Jewish claim to a homeland, the BDS Movement is fundamentally incompatible with a two-state solution and pushes the cause of peace for both Israel and the Palestinians further out of reach.

Germany’s Pro-Iran, Anti-Israel Foreign Policy

Germany has, in fact, been decidedly hostile to Israel in recent years... Germany continues to provide millions of euros annually to organizations that promote anti-Israel BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) and "lawfare" campaigns, anti-Zionism, antisemitism, and violence, according to NGO Monitor.

The UN Agency for Palestinians Is Even Worse Than You Think It Is

A corruption scandal involving sexual misconduct, nepotism, retaliation against whistleblowers, and lots of business-class travel has gripped the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). It represents a new low for UNRWA and is an indictment of the idea of an international agency dedicated to a single interest. But it’s also a unique opportunity to see behind the curtain of a billion-dollar UN bureaucracy and phase it out.

The Palestinian Authority Seeks to Erase the Oslo Accords

The import of Shtayyeh’s words is that as far as the PA is concerned, the division of West Bank territory stipulated by the Oslo Accords is null and void.

The Unique Status of the Jerusalem Suburb of Wadi Hummus

Wadi Hummus is a neighborhood in the southern Jerusalem Arab village of Sur Baher.

Forgotten Heroes: The Jewish Resistance and Exodus 1947

Veterans of the Jewish Resistance in France participated in the rescue of tens of thousands of Jews during WWII. They provided emissaries from the Land of Israel with vital infrastructure for clandestine Zionist activities in France, including money, manpower, forged documents, accommodation, and contacts among the French authorities. In July-August 1947, they were significantly involved in the dramatic story of the Exodus 1947, the ship full of Holocaust survivors turned back by the British. It is regrettable that their contribution to the creation of the State of Israel is almost entirely absent from the collective memory.
