Shame on Netanyahu, Ya'alon & any member of the religious right who joins this immoral hunt
Modern civilization has a terrible momentum, a frighteningly breathless rhythm that prods us all to forget what is genuinely important. "The end of all this delirium," wrote the philosopher Jacques Maritain, "is to prevent man from remembering G-d." An important new book by Israeli thinker Asher Keren, "A Time For Change," reflects similar concerns.
The Genocide Convention criminalizes not only various acts of genocide, but also (Article III) conspiracy to commit genocide and direct and public incitement to commit genocide. Articles II, III and IV of the Genocide Convention are fully applicable in all cases of direct and public incitement to commit genocide.

If Barack Obama didn't exist, Benjamin Netanyahu would have had to invent him.
With no one there to stop them, or to intimidate the Israeli police into stopping them, visiting Jews were able – within reason – to offer up prayers this week on the Temple Mount for the first time in many centuries.

Despite efforts to revive Jewish cultural life in Poland, which has met with a measure of success and support from Polish officials, Poland still remains a virtual graveyard of its prewar glory days.
In America, Jews are more than twice as likely to experience a hate crime than Blacks or Muslims
In March last year, thousands of Palestinians, inspired by the "Arab Spring," launched their own protests in the West Bank to demand reforms, democracy, and regime change. But the Palestinian revolt was short-lived. Abbas's security forces, backed by Fatah thugs, attacked the young men and women who were protesting in the center of Ramallah, torching their tents and beating them with clubs and rifle butts.
According to the UN, in the unique case of Israel, where there is smoke evidently there is no fire.

PA officials and journalists later explained that the ban does not apply to some journalists working for the Israeli daily Ha'aretz and who report on 'Palestinian suffering.'
Oslo dictated that the ONLY value for which Israel could still fight is the value of self defense.
We have seen that, among several other essential purposes, Israel could conceivably need nuclear weapons for nuclear war fighting.
What exactly does MK Hanegbi mean when he says "no division of Jerusalem?"
Politicians and media sources recently argued that only right-wing racist calls to violence should be illegal. Free speech has NOTHING to do with political views and everything to do with safety.
