What Obama Didn’t Say About Jerusalem

President Obama's recent remarks on Israel and the 1967 lines garnered wide attention both for what he said - most notably, that Israel must remain the same size it was before 1967 - and for what he should have said, but did not - that the Palestinian refugees are an Arab problem, not Israel's.

Islam’s Bonds Of Expediency With Jerusalem

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.
