The plan to reduce and divide Jerusalem is irresponsible from a security standpoint and contrary to history
Gilo, Har Homa and Ramat Shlomo – among the Jerusalem neighborhoods liberated from Jordanian control during the Six-Day War – are scheduled to gain hundreds of apartments.
Atarot's sister-settlement, N'vei Yaakov, has now become two flourishing Jewish neighborhoods – N'vei Yaakov and Pisgat Ze'ev – in which many tens of thousands of residents reside.
Just 15 miles to the north of Jerusalem, the Jewish effort to return to the biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria (Yesha) suffered a severe blow this week – or did it?
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
How many illegal Arab structures are there in the city? Why are they not being destroyed?
Jerusalem: extraordinary financial and building growth and satisfaction by both Jewish and Arab residents.
A brief review of Jerusalem's police blotter for recent days looks like this: * April 2: Haredi man, 55, is axed by Arab terrorist near Shaar Shechem (Damascus Gate); lightly wounded. * April 15: Seven Molotov cocktails are hurled at Jewish homes in Maaleh Zeitim, causing a fire in one of them. * April 19: Young worshipper on his way from Shimon HaTzaddik to Meah She'arim is stabbed by two Palestinian terrorists (moderate wound).
Good news in Yerushalayim: The government is expected to grant final approval next month to the first new neighborhood in the capital's liberated areas in 14 years.
A million Arabs plan to march on Jerusalem highlighting strange "accusations" that Israel is seeking to retain the Jewish character of its holy capital.
It's only natural to see increasing evidence of Jerusalem's glorious Jewish past being unearthed, quite literally, under modern Israeli sovereignty. The new archaeological finds are also very timely – as the Arab onslaught attempting to detach Jerusalem from its Jewish roots gains steam, the facts on the ground, or "under" the ground, show quite otherwise.
When discussing Jewish rights in Jerusalem, it would seem nothing would be more natural to a Bible-believing world than the acceptance of these as self-evident.
How many times does PA chieftain Mahmoud Abbas have to repeat that the Israelis are planning to rebuild the Holy Temple atop the most volatile spot in the world before the world begins to accept it as true?
The story in a nutshell: The terrorists (Arabs) act, and the victim (Israel) ignores and pretends.
In Jerusalem, there is a need for over 4,000 new apartments each year; some 2,000 are actually built
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.
For a peace treaty with the PA, half the Israeli public would agree to divide the Jerusalem
The Jewish people have had bitter experience in recent decades with enemies who repeatedly vow to destroy them. Despite this, here are some of the arguments being presented as to why Israel should not attack Iran:
Most importantly, the Jewish presence in the area of the Mt. of Olives, and throughout eastern Jerusalem, has grown significantly in recent years.
Hamas today has footholds in several neighborhoods of eastern Jerusalem,
The Arab world is simply not built to accept the existence of Israel in its midst.
Why do the Jewish ties to Jerusalem, Hebron and Nablus (Shechem), all 3 duly purchased, draw the most vociferous objections? Because the enemy knows our holy sites are the key to the entire struggle
It is true that support for Israel is very high among American voters. In fact, a poll of earlier this month showed that 56 percent of voters say they support Israel, compared to 10 percent who say they support the PA.
Though no one can be sure how a President Trump will react to any given situation, "it is generally understood that whatever we don't do in the coming two months might not be able to be done later."
When we talk about developing Jerusalem and ensuring that it remains united under Jewish sovereignty, what could be more critical than actually building Jewish housing? Yet it is an open secret that the Netanyahu government has been waging a long-running general construction freeze in the Jewish areas of Judea and Samaria (Yesha), as well as in the liberated areas of Yerushalayim.
"We returned to this Land not in order to be murdered, or uprooted. We came here to be replanted!"
Philanthropist and Israel lover Kevin Bermeister: "We are in a generation that can turn Jerusalem into a city of the world, our goal is to preserve Jerusalem as Jewish, united, and large."
What is the source of Prime Minister Netanyahu's apparent scorn for the religious, Land of Israel-faithful public in Israel?
The EU wants to replace the US with an increased role for the UN and its built-in anti-Israel stance
In a city of Jewish symbols, the Mount of Olives is perhaps the most symbolic of all: With a theatrical view of the Temple Mount and the Old City, it was the last stop for the Divine Spirit before the destruction of the First Beit HaMikdash and will be its first stop when Mashiach arrives.
