Jerusalem Steps Up To The Plate

Bibi Said He Would Expand Jerusalem – And Then Came The Elections

The truth must be told. Had Netanyahu actually taken the steps he has so often outlined to build up the Jewish presence in Yerushalayim, Israel would not now be under the gun not to take the steps so necessary to ensuring full Jewish sovereignty in the Holy Land.

What Will Happen To Jerusalem Under The Deal?

Are these Arab neighborhoods in East Jerusalem to b e given over to the Palestinians as part of the Trump Plan technically part of Jerusalem?

Warning: Expiration Date May Be Fast Approaching!

Jerusalem is facing a double attack in the form of both illegal and legal Arab construction. This comes together with watered-down levels of Jewish construction in non-critical areas. The bottom line is that if not enough homes are built for Jews, and too many are built for Arabs

More Arabs In Hebrew U – Good Or Bad?

So, yes, Yerushalayim is becoming a more "open" city, but that means we need to significantly increase and expand the Jewish presence in it. Only a strong Jewish majority will ensure and secure Jerusalem for generations to come and enable us to continue to advance toward the Jerusalem envisioned by our prophets

Illegal Arab Construction Can No Longer Be Ignored

This trend spells disaster not only for the Jews in Jerusalem, but for the State of Israel, which is liable to face pressure to divide the city in order to maintain its Jewish majority. If the current rates continue, Jerusalem's Arab population could actually reach parity with the Jewish population within 10-15 years.

Islam’s Convenient Claims To Jerusalem

The international community should relate to Palestinians’ claims to Jerusalem as nothing more than the desire to do away with Israel.

Should Arab schools in Jerusalem use Israel’s syllabus or that of the Palestinian Authority? At present, only a small minority of schools in eastern Jerusalem are under the auspices of Israel's Education Ministry – to the detriment of all peace efforts.

Understanding Jerusalem Today

In actual fact, Palestinian Arabs have precisely zero national rights to Jerusalem. The nutshell story is that in 1922, the League of Nations issued a unanimously-approved Mandate for Palestine which stated that the entire area, including Judea and Samaria, belongs to the Jewish People. This document was never replaced or modified by any other decision

Training Future Hamas Fighters In Jerusalem

The mall, however, has already drawn Fatah boycott calls as well as several Arab-hurled firebombs.

Recapturing Jerusalem One House At A Time

Keep in mind that the "Muslim Quarter" was never exclusively Muslim; Jews and Christians used to live there as well. However, the Jews were compelled to leave their homes there in the wake of the 1929 Muslim riots. Finally, we are reclaiming it, one house at a time

Apples And Oranges

Let’s clear the table and tell the "narrative" as it really is: Jerusalem was chosen as the Jewish people's national and religious center before the dawn of organized religion. Other religions followed suit and declared it their own holy city – with catastrophic results during various periods of history.

Whose Jerusalem?

Jacques Gauthier, a non-Jewish Canadian lawyer who spent 20 years researching the issue, has concluded: "Jerusalem belongs to the Jews, by international law."

Our Journey Home Won’t Be Stopped

There is a slowly growing trend of Jews returning to their historic homes in presently Arab-majority neighborhoods. Let the trend grow

Trump, King Darius, And Jerusalem

President Trump has not yet given his "permission" to build the Third Temple, but he seems to have gone a fair ways towards taking his place in Jewish history.

Protecting Jerusalem From Within

The Greek Orthodox Church found another way to circumvent its own rules against selling the land. In 2011, it sold the future leasing rights on most of its Jerusalem holdings to a private group of Jewish investors. It is the uncertainty of the future that creates unease

Jerusalem’s Airplane Hill: Construction Flight Aborted

The monster called "American and European pressure" showed up – and shot down the Givat HaMatos building project, once again. Why is the large Givat HaMatos housing project so significant and important?
