At one and the same time, the PA indirectly encourages terrorism while pursuing extensive security cooperation with Israel to quell it. Israel accepts this contradictory framework and will probably continue to do so, even during the succession crisis that is likely to follow Abbas’s demise.
If a Palestinian who buys Israeli milk is a traitor in the eyes of Fatah, it is not difficult to imagine the fate of any Palestinian who would dare to discuss compromise with Israel. If he is lucky, he will have a close encounter with a firebomb. If he is not lucky, he will be hanged in a public square.
Why won’t the ADL fight alt-Left anti-Semitism? Follow the money.
Unwittingly, perhaps, and in his unorthodox way, Trump may have invited Americans to also contemplate the choice they have.
In the image of his ideological mentor, Ze’ev Jabotinsky, the Latvia-born Israeli became a pillar of professional and political achievement—a voice of reason during the crucial development of the Jewish state.
Anti-Israel lesson plans are fast becoming a problem in high schools across the country and even in unlikely places like the heavily Jewish populated town of Newton, Mass.
Impossible is what Israel is about, and there are few places in the world that are able to take that which can’t be done and do it anyway.
This minor’s story should have shaken the foundations, but civil-rights organizations all kept their silence, and politicians fell asleep on the job.
Netanyahu, as two Israeli leftists recently admitted, is far more moderate than his hardline image. But by portraying him as an extremist, the left has tarnished Israel among both American Jews and the Democratic Party.
Rabbi Teichtel, who was a well-known rabbi (partially because of a previous sefer he authored, Mishne Sachir), did change his mind and regretted opposing the Zionist movement.
People are often strongly pro- or anti-sheitel simply due to their affiliation with a certain religious group. My goal in the article was to encourage people to think critically about the sheitel in an intellectually honest and nuanced manner
Once hair is cut, it is no longer connected to a person and has the status of any other material. The hair is no longer “erva”; it is like a cloth. It is, therefore, not at all problematic to use natural hair for a wig.
Trump bad for Israel? Worse than Obama? Insane.
Why in the world would Israel expose its citizens to potential dangers on its roads?
Israel is using its intelligence to assist the Egyptian army with its war on terror, thwart the passage of arms deliveries to the Gaza Strip, and prevent the entrenchment of ISIS on its border with Egypt.
Not so long ago, of course, the peace process was Israel’s top voting issue, almost its only one. But in a poll published last month, self-identified centrists and rightists both ranked the peace process dead last among six suggested issues of concern. Even self-identified leftists ranked it only third, below corruption and closing socioeconomic gaps.
First, many Democrats suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome, which prevents them from assessing serious matters, such as antisemitism, in rational terms. Tlaib is anti-Semitic to her core but because she is a Trump hater, she’s given a free pass.
The assault on Jewish rights, rites and traditions – the likes that have not been seen since the Nazi era – will only get worse, because in the next few years, as the last of the Holocaust survivors pass on, there will be no more direct witnesses to the world’s darkest hour.
The left wants us to think that Jews are white. The right wants us to think they are not. But Hitler couldn't have cared less.
The Palestinian leadership is manipulating and abusing the ICC and turning it into their own “back-yard tribunal” for hounding Israel.
Not only does Yad Vashem’s International School for Holocaust Studies host 7,000 teachers annually in its Jerusalem center, but its programs train thousands more in 50 countries. And it provides a full menu of online teacher resources, including survivor testimonies, photos, rare film footage and lesson plans in 20 languages, destined for classrooms around the globe.
Both these appearances were cameo performances that served to highlight, in very different ways, the alarming trend now accelerating across the West: the breakdown of respect for the rule of law and democratic institutions.
To single out only the "Jew among nations," and not the dozens of far more serious violators of human rights is bigotry pure and simple, and those who support BDS only against Israel are guilty of bigotry.
For 20 years now Israel has renewed the hostile organization’s mandate to operate in Hebron. Otherwise, its presence would have ended long ago. It is now one of the oldest observer forces in the world, and it contributes to Israel’s image as an outlaw state that demands special observation.
Geoffrey Chaucer (1343-1400) is the author of The Canterbury Tales, a collection of 22 stories, mostly written in verse; Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593) was a...
