Palestinian Rejectionism is Weakening

Originally published under the title “Weakening Palestinian Rejectionism.” A recent poll showed that Israelis want a tougher policy toward the Palestinians. And Palestinians, beyond occasional rampaging and murdering Israelis, what do they want? Dan Polisar of Shalem College reviewed 400 opinion polls dating from 2000 and found they hold three main views of Israel: it […]

End the False Israeli-Palestinian Parity

Slightly edited version of the original article. Indian prime minister Narendra Modi’s decision to visit Jerusalem but not Ramallah has prompted much comment. The expectation of equal treatment goes back to the Oslo Accords’ signing in Sep. 1993, when the prime minister of Israel, Yitzhak Rabin, represented his government in the handshake with Yasir Arafat, […]

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 […]

I Criticised Hamas and My Life in Turkey Became a Nightmare

My greatest sin was to argue: “The fact that there are no Israeli casualties does not mean Hamas does not want to kill; it just means Hamas, for the moment, cannot kill.” It was a beautiful, sunny day in December 2006 when I met Shimon Peres at his Tel Aviv office. At one point in […]

President Trump Wants a Peace Process Too

During the election campaign and after his inauguration, President Donald Trump said several times that he wants to close a deal between Israel and the Palestinians. The longer the list of failed U.S. attempts over the decades, the more alluring this challenge apparently becomes. The prospects for enduring acclaim in the event of success seem […]

Muslim men praying in Manger Square, Bethlehem?

Faith Goldy, Sheila Gunn Reid, the zany Gavin McInnes and myself crammed in everything we could, from the border with Gaza, to Jewish “settlements” in the West Bank. There were so many amazing sights — like the video of hundreds of Muslim men filling Manger Square, outside the Church of the Nativity, in Bethlehem, as […]

“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 […]

“Palestinian” MUSLIM STUDENT LEADER at UK Exeter university declares she’s “proud to be a TERRORIST”

The deep pride devout Muslims take in their hatred and bloodlust is eerily similar to the fervor of adherents of the Third Reich. In a a rational age, this bloody seditionist would be thrown out of the country. But in the Islamic state of the UK, she’ll just as easily get elected Mayor of London […]
