The Burden of Israel’s 1967 Victory

Originally published under the title “The Burden of the 1967 Victory.” In June 1967, the Israel Defense Force (IDF) waged war alone against Egypt, Jordan, and Syria. It achieved a stunning victory in six days. The military skill demonstrated by the Israelis was remarkable – so much so that battles from the Six-Day War continue […]

The Launch of the Congressional Israel Victory Caucus

The Israel Victory Caucus works to ensure the victory of Israel in the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

Palestinians and the Balfour Declaration at 100: Resisting the Past

A striking aspect of Palestinian culture is its resistance to the realities of the past. On September 22, 2016, Palestinian Authority (PA) president Mahmoud Abbas addressed the UN.

Israel’s New Rules

Hugh Lanning, a British citizen and chairman of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, was denied entry into Israel on March 12, the first militant anti-Zionist to fall “victim” to a new law banning entry to any foreigner “who knowingly issues a public call for boycotting Israel.” “Whoever acts against Israel should understand that the rules of […]

“The IDF holds Hamas accountable for any attacks from the Gaza Strip that jeopardize the safety of Israelis and breach Israel’s sovereignty,” IDF Spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner stated. And at last Israel and the IDF have a man in the White House who is actually on their side. Maybe now Israel won’t always be […]

Destruction ‘Beyond Belief’ at Jewish Cemetery, 300 GRAVES VANDALIZED

Further proof of how the enemedia under reports these vicious acts of antisemitism. This second desecration of Jewish graves in Philadelphia was first reported to be “a couple of dozen” (see ABC news). Then the reports said it was a hundred tombstones. Now the number tops three hundred. Would no self-respecting journalists actually go out […]

Is Judaism a Good Model for Islamic Reform?

Mustafa Akyol’s recent New York Times column, “What Jesus Can Teach Today’s Muslims,” bravely broaches one of the most important issues today: reform in Islam.
