Zionist Strategy for Israel

I do not believe that the Saudi-Iran agreement closes the door on Saudi-Israeli entente, nor on a renewed pro-Western regional alliance involving Israel and the Saudis

Multiple Political Choices for 5783: A Quiz

Which of the following political, security, and domestic events can be expected in Israel, the Mideast, and around the world this coming year? Take this quiz and calculate the 5783 political future you need to be prepared for. (My answers are at the bottom of the article.)

Erase Jordan’s False Claims in Jerusalem

Israel has good reason to fear that Abdullah and Biden are cooking-up an attempt to impose new pro-Arab “arrangements” on the Temple Mount, with Biden coming to Israel in late June to ride herd on this issue. Note: King Abdullah has no claim to “custodianship” over Muslim and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem.

Reawakening to the Iranian Threat

A comprehensive picture of Iranian belligerence and its tectonic threat to Mideast and global stability.

Israel’s Best Response to Palestinian Terror: More Settlements

Fight fire with fire. The terrorists want to chase Israel off this land; in response, Israel should lay stakes on more land each time they fire a shot.

Ascending the Temple Mount for the First Time

My first “aliyah” this week to “Har HaBayit” was scary, emotional, fascinating, and infuriating. And necessary.

Israel’s Supreme Court Needs Democratic Checks on its Power

Restoring the pre-Aharon Barak juridical culture of restraint is a necessary process.

Iran’s War on Israel

The only real power standing in the way of Palestinian terrorism and Iranian hegemonism is Israel.

No Moral Equivalence

There is no moral equivalence whatsoever between Palestinian terrorists and Israeli troops. Falsely balanced diplomatic formulations like those that “call upon all sides to end the cycle of violence” must be rejected. This is prattle that covers for Palestinian extremism and rejectionism, and retards the cause of peace.

Imagine: Israel-The Role Model for Arab Countries

On their second anniversary, it can be said that the Abraham Accords constitute an ideological breakthrough of Biblical magnitude.

Celebrating Cynthia Ozick at 95

The illustrious Jewish-American novelist is a penetrating and courageous critic of contemporary society and its attitudes to Jews and Israel.

Give Saudi Peace a Chance

Chances for a deal are high, the risks manageable, and the value overwhelming. The doubters and naysayers, as well as those who actively are trying to sabotage such an agreement, are wrong.

When the Going Gets Tough…

… the tough get going. When this country is under attack, Israel’s friends need to be more determined than ever to defend it.

9 Landfills for Lapid

Which policies will Yair Lapid choose to adopt during his time as PM? Here are my nine “landfills” — policy suggestions for the period in which Lapid fills-in for Bennett.

 Embrace the Abraham Accords Already! 

Western progressives are dissing rather than embracing the Abraham Accords. This is a tragedy

Israel at 75: The Sun is Shining

On the 75th Yom Haatzmaut, focus on the brilliance bursting forth from the nation of Israel in realms galore.

Tribute to Rabbi Sholom Gold of Jerusalem: The Most Passionate of Zionists

Rabbi Gold, who passed away this week at 88, was known for feisty and infectious Zionist passion and for biting witticism. He understood God’s love for all Jews in absolute terms (which he sought to emulate absolutely), and he understood God’s grant of the Land of Israel to the Jewish People in absolute terms, in a totality wrapped with kedusha, holiness. These are not gifts that one can simply fritter away.

The Big Chill–Again

Israel must resist America’s fantasy framework for a swift, dangerously indecisive, end to the Gaza war.

The Ultra-Orthodox “Vacation Draft” Plan

Everybody knows that the rapidly growing and politically muscular Ultra-Orthodox Jewish community in Israel can no longer altogether avoid military and/or national service. But haredi leaders will not relinquish their rigid communal structure of full-time and lifetime-long Torah study. And nobody can draft haredi Israeli Jews against their will – no matter what the Supreme Court rules or the Knesset legislates. So here is my national service plan for haredi men during “bein hazmanim,” their long semester breaks.

Just who is Pogroming Whom?

Compared to the ongoing Palestinian terrorist mega-pogrom against Israeli Jews, the Huwara rampage must rank as one the weakest pogroms in the ugly history of pogroms. So where is the anguish over Israeli Jews continuously murdered by Palestinian terrorists?

Plenty to Give Thanks For–Dayenu!

In grand perspective, see how many benefits and blessings the Heavens have showered upon Israel! It enjoys a strong economy, coronavirus and political stability (at least for the past year), diplomatic and security heft, renewed Aliyah, national resilience that stems from faith, and global Jewish support.

Biden Spares Iran and Scolds Israel

The US president is neighing about Israeli democracy and stiffing Netanyahu to counter Israel’s insistence on acting against Iran.

Ten Tips for Netanyahu

Israel must reject the hypocrisy of foreign leaders from Washington to Paris who threaten to downgrade their ties with Israel if Ben-Gvir gets a seat in cabinet.

Cool it!

Beware the doomsday discourse about irreparable depredations in Israel’s democratic moorings. The poison it pumps into Israel’s soul and standing is far worse than its proximate cause.

Weapons, Weapons Everywhere – Why?

Oslo is the root cause of today’s terrible epidemic of terrorist and crime shootings.

Good Morning, President Biden

Wakey, wakey! Time for a course reversal. Consider the grand drama of Israel reborn, and don’t go weak-kneed on Iran.

The Myth of Escalating Settler Violence

An ugly, fringe phenomenon being falsely puffed up to "balance" the crimes of Hamas.

Israel: A Tale of 2 Parallel Universes

Israel seems to exist in two parallel, contradictory worlds. One is a false, hackneyed, out-of-date, and threatening universe where recalcitrant and violent Palestinian leaders are venerated, and admirable Israeli leaders are criminalized. The other universe is real, promising, forward looking, and stabilizing, and is marked by a peace dynamic that runs from Jerusalem to Dubai, Manama, Rabat, Cairo and Amman; and from Jerusalem to the most important leaders in the world.

Radicals with “Ben-Gvir-Phobia” Committed to Crashing Israel’s Diplomatic Relations

I'm less concerned about the direction of the emerging direction of the new government than I am about the hysterical reactions to it from foreign governments and hard-left observers.
