U.S. Cuts Aid to Egypt: Is Obama an Idiot, a Muslim, or a Closet Anti-Semite? You Decide…

Israel National News reported today that the U.S. State Department made an ill-conceived move that may endanger the Israel-Egypt peace treaty signed by Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat following the Yom Kippur War. One of the results of the treaty was that the U.S. promised millions in economic and military aid to Egypt, perhaps the most powerful Arab state.

Top 10 Reasons I Support Moshe Feiglin for PM

Top 10 Reasons I Support Moshe Feiglin for PM

Moshe Feiglin has always made a good impression on me. The one time I met him (I drove him from O’Hare to where he was staying in Chicago when he was visiting there a few years ago), he candidly spoke to me about his vision and his plans for the future. Unlike a vast majority of Israeli politicians, he wasn’t the least bit haughty. I didn’t sense an aura of indispensability.

Does the World Hate Us? A דרשה By Ze’ev Ben Yechiel

Does the World Hate Us? A דרשה By Ze’ev Ben Yechiel

Israeli Jews often find themselves feeling as if “the world hates us;” as if everyone is “out to get us.” It might be true that the anti-Semitism of things that Zhabotinsky talked about in his works, the concept that the Nations detest us not necessarily for who we are–but for our national history and for the things that represent us–is alive and well, but does the entire world really hate us? I strongly doubt it.

Boycotting Israel Hurts Arab Interests

Boycotting Israel Hurts Arab Interests

You’ve seen them by now: those pesky BDS’ers going around asking people to “boycott” Israel. It doesn’t make too much sense to a mature human being just based on the simple fact that most likely you’re boycotting your own computer or your own veggies, or better yet (or worse perhaps) your own cancer treatment

Naftali Bennett Disconnected from Religious-Zionist Electorate

Naftali Bennett Disconnected from Religious-Zionist Electorate

Naftali Bennett earned a whopping 12 mandates in the last Knesset elections. This didn’t surprise anyone. He led a populist campaign based on the Israeli version of “You’re my bro.” He talked about unity, unity and more unity as if unity was everything and I gotta hand it to him: unity isn’t the “most important” think for Israel–it’s the only thing that really matters. But Bennett and his Jewish Home party have proven far from equal to the task of bringing unity to Israel.

Morality in the Israel-“Palestinian” Conflict

Morality in the Israel-“Palestinian” Conflict

When it comes to morality, Israel has been accused of the worst crimes one can imagine in its 35+ year old conflict against the “Palestinian people,” an entity unknown prior to around 1976, when arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat rose amongst the ranks of his Egyptian classmates, and, along with a bunch of individuals who on both a physical and mental level can be compared best to Freddy Crugar/The Three Stooges, founded the PLO, an organization with the stated claim of “liberating Palestine.”

Which is a Better Friend: the US or Russia?

Which is a Better Friend: the US or Russia?

As US-Russia relations have hit a post-Cold War low, Israelis are left wondering if Russia would be a better, more stable ally for Israel than the U.S. has been. This isn’t an altogether hypothetical question: the USSR started out supporting Israel and turned towards the Arabs after the Six Day War when it became clear Israel wasn’t about to become another puppet Communist regime.

Victims of Arab Terror on Edge as Netanyahu Releases 104 Terrorists

Victims of Arab Terror on Edge as Netanyahu Releases 104 Terrorists

Kay Wilson has spent the past 2 ½ years with only one goal in mind – trying to find a moment’s respite from the constant barrage of thoughts, images and sounds that fill her mind. It’s been more than 2 ½ years since she was brutally stabbed while guiding Kristine Luken, an American tourist, through an archeological site in the hills surrounding Jerusalem.

Definition of “Hypocrite:” “Religious Jew living in America”

Definition of “Hypocrite:” “Religious Jew living in America”

Every time Israel makes concessions to the Arabs, I hear American Jews voicing their disapproval. But they voice their disapproval with us not only when things don’t go their way–they’ve realized they have to come up with reason to hate the State of Israel and everything that represents Zionist values because if they don’t, it looks like they’re hypocrites.

The Syria Quandary

The Syria Quandary

In the bloody Syrian civil war, civilians have paid a heavy price. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition group, reported in May that at least 94,000 people have been killed throughout the two years of clashes.

Self Pity in Zionist Circles: Good or Bad?

Self Pity in Zionist Circles: Good or Bad?

Zionist activists in Israel and abroad seem to have settled on a theme du jour for just about everything they say and do. “Israel is being unfairly treated by the world.” I see it in the news every day and it’s becoming a menace. Not because it’s not true but because it’s being misapplied.
