Tense International Focus On Western Wall Ramp

In Jerusalem, even when it's relatively quiet on most of the city's fronts, the tensions always zero in on one place: The holiest spot in the world, the site of the Beit HaMikdash – the Temple Mount.

INTO THE FRAY: Sinai – Descent into Depravity

Preserving Jewish Cemeteries In Poland

Every spring and summer, there is renewed activity throughout Poland regarding the preservation of Jewish cemeteries.

Haaretz Claims Right-Wing Voters Support Division Of Jerusalem

We came across this startling headline in Haaretz:"Most Right-Wing Voters Support Establishment of Palestinian State and Division of Jerusalem." But Haaretz, as dovish and radical as it is, surely wouldn't lie straight out, would they? So how did they come up with such a headline?

Prosecute Saddam For Crime Of Aggression Against Israel

One of the most elementary principles of law is known as Nullum Crimen Sine Poena: "No crime without a punishment."

Israel On Trial – Wrongfully

Not surprisingly, with regard to Israel, The New York Times continues to publish essentially only the Arab side of the story.
