The importance of the caucus on organ harvesting in China, sponsored recently by the Liberal Lobby in the Knesset, cannot be exaggerated.
A radically innovative approach to Israel's present military approach to Gaza and the Palestinians.
We have just missed an extraordinary opportunity. Israel’s weakness on the Temple Mount will bring a very serious conflict because, with our capitulation, we have lost our sense of justice.
But why does the Left hate Netanyahu so much – even though he is doing everything to make their policies come true?
Tragically, we are heading straight for a repeat of the U.S. attack on Iraq’s Saddam Hussein in 1991.
What will happen if the enemy captures one of these female combat soldiers, G-d forbid? Why can’t we take action to prevent these things from happening instead of reacting after they happen? Why do we have to live the most fearsome nightmares when they can so easily be avoided? Just because the politicians are embarrassed to tell the truth?
The legal authorities in Israel have all the legal tools necessary to completely reject the petitions against the residents of Amona.
If Israel didn’t receive American aid, would it buy U.S. F-35 jets? Should it? This deal has given us an air force on a leash.
I was filled with an uncomfortable feeling in the face of the Itamar massacre. Everyone is in shock. I feel horrible pain. But I am not shocked.
The following is excerpted from the interview that appeared in the July 19th issue of Israel's Maariv newspaper:
It's the PM’s job to protect his nation; It's the attorney general’s job to protect PM's policies
If the protection money paid to Gaza--to the tune of 1billion NIS annually--does not prevent Jewish fatalities – which have increased 5x since the Oslo peace accords broke out and Israel retreated from Gaza – why does Israel continue to pay these huge sums of money to our sworn enemies?
When the recent spontaneous protests against the arrests of Rabbis Dov Lior and Yaakov Yosef gave way to official spin, the provocative initiators from the Attorney General's office likely breathed a sigh of relief. Once again, the "enemy" had painted himself into a patently irrelevant corner, and the partisan justice system - growing public disgust with it notwithstanding - remained the only show in town.
The following is an excerpt from a recent Front Page interview with Moshe Feiglin. The interviewer is Dan Rabkin of FrontPageMagazine.com.
Recent polls show yet again that the vast majority of Israeli society is traditional, holds from its religious faith and shies away from coercion. Thus, hasn’t the time come for our national leadership to express the desires of the large Jewish majority?
Arab MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad) doesn’t allow us to flee from ourselves. She holds an intelligent, scathing and vital mirror to our faces.
I think that Netanyahu should go home, but for the right reasons. Netanyahu should go home because he is a strategic danger to the state of Israel. He should not go home because of a political putsch by the Left.
The speech that will never be delivered
Shimon Peres symbolized something. He created a language and mentality that have determined the mindset and behavior of Israel and, in great measure, the entire Western world for the last 25 years.
Recent warnings by President Obama to Israel against an Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities are reminiscent of the period prior to the 1967 Six-Day War. Then, as now, Israel was faced with an existential threat. Then, as now, the U.S. pressured Israel not to take action.
If the recent pictures of destroyed outposts had been of Bedouin villages or illegal houses in the Galilee, the whole country would have been up in arms.
If it weren’t so sad, the draft brouhaha in Israel would be the greatest show in town. It is a masquerade ball, a tragicomedy whereby each actor says the complete opposite of what he really wants.
What concerns me is how we got to the point we NEED soldiers at the intersection in the first place
The lobbyist tried to convince me that this is pragmatic politics, that this is the argument around which we can now achieve a consensus.
Somehow, the common question in Israel today is whether the prime minister has the right to decide to attack Iran. “He has the chutzpah to think that he can decide,” former Supreme Court justice Eliyahu Winograd more or less pontificated, capturing all of the major news outlets’ headlines.
Last week, I detailed parts of my campaign platform for the January 22 Israeli Knesset elections. Here are more proposals:
It is wrong to throw rocks at IDF soldiers. We must do all that we can to uproot this phenomenon. But the mad witch-hunt that raged recently has nothing to do with concern for and loyalty to the IDF.
"I can get along with you – but with the Zionists, I can’t.”
Nobody really expected Israel to react to the Katyusha rockets launched from southern Lebanon that hit the northern Israeli town of Shelomi (on the morning of Jan. 8, 2008).
"We must demonstrate against [Ehud] Olmert," said the voice over the phone.
