Israel’s Dilemma in Gaza

At this strategic watershed moment, one can discern the logic of the policy that has guided the Netanyahu government’s approach to Gaza over the past decade – that it is in Israel’s interest for Hamas to remain in control until the group is rejected by its own people.

Israel Under Attack: The Only Reaction That Matters

We, the people of Israel, must demand security. We must demand deterrence. Our security will come about by winning, by determining what the end-game must be and by unapologetically seeing it through.

Defending Palestinian Rights Requires Knowing What Rights They Have

Would Palestinian Arab workers be willing to lose their jobs? Do the union leaders actually represent the Palestinian Arabs and their interests? Do Palestinian Arabs really support BDS?

Testimony: Recognizing Israeli Sovereignty on the Golan Heights

U.S. recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights would constitute the fulfillment of a series of previous diplomatic assurances given to Israel by past administrations regarding the international status of Israel's position on that strategic plateau.

First, “The Deal of the Century”; Then – Dismantle the State of Israel.

Should Israel withdraw from Judea and Samaria – we will face an unrelenting assault on our very right to exist.

The Case for Jexodus

It must be based on a fight to repair this country by restoring its values and its truths.

Anti-Semitism Crisis in the Democratic Party

The Democratic Party has been overtaken by an antisemitism crisis, a process of ”Corbynization” akin to that of the British Labour Party. The process’s three principal proponents, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar, personify three components – socialism, Palestinianism, and Islamism – given impunity by the concept of “intersectionality.” The trajectory of their red-green alliance is leading the Democratic Party towards socialism. For American Jews, this means their deep allegiance to the Democratic Party over many generations has been rewarded with abandonment and suspicion. For Israel, there is the prospect of a future Democratic administration that advocates its destruction. For the rest of the world, the party’s severe inward turn portends global retreat.

Iran Inches Closer to its Goal: “Wipe Israel off the Map”

When will the international community begin to take the Iranian's government clear verbal threats and physical aggression seriously? Or would the international community secretly like to see Israel destroyed, under Europe's Orwellian inversion of the words: "the peace process"?

A Brief History of Jew-hatred

Jew-hatred is as old as the Judean Hills, predating even the rebellion of the Jewish nation against Roman imperialism and colonialism from 66 to 73 C.E. Among the punishments Rome inflicted: renaming the conquered Jewish territories.

Palestinians: The Other Peace Deal

Hamas is now accusing the PA and Fatah of exploiting the economic crisis in the Gaza Strip to call on Palestinians to overthrow the Hamas regime. Fatah, for its part, is accusing the "dark forces" of Hamas of acting on orders from outside parties to establish a separate Palestinian state in the Gaza Strip.

Amalek And Esther – In 2019

Just as we now see that the Democrats can’t be relied upon, we shouldn’t delude ourselves into believing that since “we have a sister in the royal palace” – after all, Ivanka and Jared have the king’s ear – everything’s going to be fine and Trump will always do what’s best for Israel.

Divided, We Die; United, We Live

Since all our souls are of Divine origin, our collective bond with G-d should, by definition, cause us to all feel inextricably interconnected. Why then does achdut seem so tantalizingly unattainable and why does achdut become reawakened when, Heaven forbid, calamity strikes?

We Need More Jewish Power, Not Less

History has proven that Jews need more power and influence than other groups to secure their safety. During the 1930s and early 1940s, Jews had morality on their side, but they lacked the power and influence to save six million of their brothers and sisters from systematic murder.

The Deceiver’s Disciple

And here is the tactic. While Omar attempts to delegitimize the Jewish community’s allegiance to America, and her coreligionists work to delegitimize the Jewish bond to Israel (even to destroying holy relics dating back 3,000 years), she hides her own history and failings, that she will never assimilate, is not to be trusted, and will work to delegitimize our Constitution with sharia.

Omar and the Congressional Black Caucus’ anti-Semitism Problem

The problem of Rep. Omar’s anti-Semitism and the CBC’s defense of it is rooted in a larger dynamic of Marxism and Islamism, of black nationalism and terrorism, that has larger implications not just for the Jews, but for Christians, and for Americans, Africans and people around the world.

The Judicial Dictatorship in Israel, is not Democracy

The elite clique of Supreme Court judges and lawyer wannabes, already make up five votes. As I said, self-appointing elites, who veer to the left and hold everyone else in disdain.

Ireland’s Anti-Israel Drift: How Did It Come to This?

There is no evidence that Ireland's "pro-Palestinian" activities are in any way helping Palestinians, who continue to be arrested, tortured and deprived of any viable future by their own corrupt leaders. Most European activities seem actually focused on trying to destroy Israel.

The Problem isn’t Racism, it’s the Electoral System

Many Israelis are willing to tolerate a racist party in the Knesset because they fear that the alternative is a government that will make life-threatening territorial concessions. And when voters think human life is at stake, telling them to “just say no” won’t work.

Take back the Temple Mount

It is simply absurd that a foreign body controlled by the Jordanian government and the Palestinian regime are allowed to administer the primary holy site in the heart of Jerusalem, even as it periodically whips up violence against Israel and Jews.

Israeli Victory Benefits both Jews and Arabs

Over the years, significant international pressure on Israel created an anomaly where ironically, the more Israel seeks peace and compromise with its unreformed enemy, the further peace is pushed into a distant future.

When an anti-Semite Openly Roams the Halls of Congress

Indeed, many forms of intolerance exist; however, that does not excuse the failure to condemn a 2,000-year-old hatred that is unlike any other.

For First Time US Refers to Golan Heights as “Under Israeli Control”

The change in language came amid intensified efforts by Israel to win U.S. recognition of its claim of sovereignty over the Golan Heights

Campus Anti-Semitism Comes to Congress

In less than a decade, campus Jew-hate leaped from campus to Congress.

The Christchurch Mosque massacre and the Changing Face of Extremism

Jews and Muslims find themselves on the same side of the line that separates civilization from barbarism. If we are to achieve greater understanding between our two minority communities, then that is as good a place as any from which to start.
