Revisiting The Iran Deal

editor 14 October 2017

By David Harris.. This week, President Donald Trump is expected to speak on Iran and, specifically, the fate of the Iran deal (JCPOA). We have been following the Iran policy discussion closely for years, and are in touch with a wide range of decision-makers from the U.S. and overseas. From the start, AJC took a deliberative approach to the JCPOA, just as we will do depending on what the president says regarding certification/decertification of the deal and the role of Congress going forward.

How Palestine “Occupies” Itself

editor 14 October 2017

By Dr. Asaf Romirowski.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 606, October 7, 2017

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: “Occupation” has become an all-purpose Palestinian tool. On the one hand, the Palestinians claim the Israeli “occupation” makes serious negotiations with Israel impossible. On the other, they claim the “occupation” makes the development of local institutions and civil society impossible. Western and Israeli diplomats have largely avoided criticism of this strategy, possibly because it has become a central tenet of Palestinian identity.

Why End Times? (61) – Chapter 6 – The Great tribulation and Israel

editor 12 October 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why End Times? Chapter 6 – The Great Tribulation and Israel

Hitler
In his impressive book ‘Kroniek van de Jodenvervolging 1940-1945’ (Chronicle of the persecution of the Jews 1940-1945, first edition already in 1950) Abel J. Herzberg sketched the deep spiritual background of what motivated Hitler and his cronies. First of all he refers with great appreciation to the book ‘Edda and Thora’ by the Christian Prof. Dr. K. H. Miskotte, which was ’a source of strength for so many Jews during all the misery of the occupation’. The book is compiled from lectures held by Miskotte in The Netherlands in 1934 and in Dutch East India in 1937, published in 1939. [Photo top right: Abel J. Herzberg]Read more »
