Mass murderers who target certain ethnic groups are evil. Mass murderers who randomly slay people at country music concerts, movie theaters, and high schools are evil. Attending a diversity-oriented activity will not make one bit of difference to a mass murderer.
Tlaib accused U.S. senators sponsoring a law against the BDS movement of looking out for the interests of Israel rather America's, ironic considering that she literally wore a Palestinian flag while pledging herself to the Palestinian Arab cause when she was sworn into office.
Every Jew has a moral obligation to protest and lobby against the IDF’s tactics and policies in drafting women – whether these women are religious or not. Refusal to do so is equivalent to enabling abuse and immorality.
The BDS and social justice warriors are so misaligned and so distorted, they fail to represent real justice. Have they ever done anything beneficial to the very people in whose name they claim to be carrying out their activities?
Leaked documents seen by NGO Monitor indicate that Amnesty International will conduct a series of intense campaigns singling out Israel in early 2019. Objective: To delegitimize Jewish historical connections to Jerusalem and elsewhere, as well as promote BDS against Israel.
Progressives (and not just in the United States) think that the two-state solution would fulfill Palestinian aspirations.
Instead of maintaining just a monitoring mode, UNIFIL does have a mandate to search homes when there is evidence of violations. Clearly, the role of UNIFIL was not intended to be as passive as it has become.
Not only did the UN fail to condemn the terrorist group threatening Israel’s south, it also failed to take action against the terrorist group threatening Israel’s north.
A group of retired generals published an open letter, saying that signing the Global Compact was a further step towards "the abandonment of national sovereignty" and noted that "80% of the French population think that immigration must be halted or regulated drastically".
Their common denominator: grassroots activism, declared political objectives and considerable funding from abroad. This network of NGOs could become a central player in the upcoming election.
Behind the Left’s war on Jewish schools.
Canary Mission tracks social media and videos, capturing BDS, anti-Zionist, and anti-Semitic expressions, triangulating them into individual profiles that expose and create permanent highly-visible records of the words and images BDS and SJP leaders actually use.
For over a decade, Israel has avoided deciding whether its interests are better served by maintaining the current “two Palestinian states” status quo, or by seeing Gaza rejoin the Palestinian Authority. The result is an untenable, chronic-crisis situation that empowers Mahmoud Abbas and is a lose-lose for Israel.
Tehran supports Palestinian terrorism on Israel, violating multiple sanctions laws
Contrast what Israel does with how the Palestinians treat terrorists who willfully target and kill Jewish children, women and other civilians. The Palestinian Authority pays their families rewards – in effect bounties -- for their willful acts of murder. Hamas promotes and lionizes terrorists who kill Jews. But you would not know any of that from reading the one-sided New York Times screed....All in all, it is a shockingly irresponsible report.
The law gives everyone just enough rights to hurt children, not help them.
Many worry about yeshivos being forced to teach so many hours of secular studies that Torah instruction will have to be curtailed.
First, in all European countries and other important regions in the world, the national Right is growing stronger, and therefore, we must devote our main political efforts to cultivating ties with right-wing parties. Second, the Left is becoming increasingly anti-Semitic.
The slogan most famously associated with Rav Hirsch is Torah im Derekh Eretz. What Rav Hirsch meant by these words is that the Torah is not inherently connected to any one particular culture or civilization.
A situation in which Habayit Hayehudi, Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon’s Kulanu Party, Yisrael Beytenu, and Shas are all hovering near the minimum electoral threshold would be a dangerous one. So dangerous that the right could lose power.
Does one errant IDF bullet warrant moral equivalence with Hamas terror tunnels?
Palestinian leaders are not offering their people a better life, prosperity, security and stability. Instead, the leaders are urging Palestinians to continue hating Israel and the US. They are urging Arab countries not to make peace with Israel: they consider normalization with Israel an act of treason.
The massive development of cyberspace has given single-issue politics an unexpected boost. Today, almost anyone anywhere in the word could create his or her own echo-chamber around a pet subject
This year American Jews almost experienced a tragedy: It was rumored that Entenmann’s was going to lose its kosher certification.
In a 4700-word story about a Palestinian medic killed in Gaza border violence, there is no mention of the thousand Hamas rockets fired into Israel in 2018 and Israeli families sleeping in shelters. There is no mention of Hamas chieftains leading chants of "Death to Israel."
