After Temple Mount ‘Victory,’ Arabs Set Sights on Western Wall

editor 17 August 2017

By Andrew Friedman.. Palestinians and Arab MKs declared ‘victory’ Tuesday (July 25, 2017) as Israel reversed security measures at the Temple Mount, and said their struggle for control over the compound also extends to the Western Wall. MK Taleb Abu Arar (Joint List) stressed that “Jews have no rights at al-Aqsa Mosque,” and added that Muslims’ fight against Israel would continue, regardless of the cabinet decision to remove metal detectors from the entrances to the Temple Mount compound.

Report: Arab States Offer Israel Improved Ties in Exchange for Peace Concessions

editor 18 May 2017

By Staff.. Israel would be expected to freeze settlement construction as part of steps toward normalizing ties. Various Arab Gulf nations are reportedly prepared to improve ties with Israel if Jerusalem takes what they deem as significant efforts to relaunch the stagnate peace process with the Palestinians, The Wall Street Journal on Monday (May 15, 2017) cited sources close to the matter as saying. As part of the normalization process, the Gulf states would reportedly be willing to set up telecommunication lines between the countries, allow for Israeli businesses to trade with their Arab counterparts and allow for Israeli planes to fly over their airspace.

Arab-Israeli Peace Agreements

editor 12 April 2017

By Eli E.Hertz.. Between 1993 and 2001, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the Palestinian Authority (PA) signed six agreements with Israel and conducted countless meetings and summits to bring about a lasting peace between them. Each Israeli concession was met with Palestinian non-compliance and escalating violence. Six times, Palestinians failed to honor their commitments and increased their anti-Israeli aggressions. Finally, they broke every promise they made and began an allout guerrilla war against Israel and its citizens. (more…)


The lessons of the Arab summit

editor 10 April 2017

By Zalman Shoval.. During the 28th Arab League summit in Jordan that ended over the weekend (March 29, 2017), host King Abdullah of Jordan said that there would be no regional stability without solving the Palestinian issue, defining Israel as an obstacle to peace. While the king probably knows better than many others what the real reasons for regional instability are, mostly as they affect his own country, at the end of the day the “Arab League” is not particularly significant, nor does it wield executive authority, for better or worse.

A very big deal to solve a very big problem

editor 3 March 2017

By Einat Wilf and Adi Schwartz.. President Donald Trump, as expressed in the press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, now aspires in the Middle East to “a much bigger deal”, “a much more important deal”, one that “would take in many, many countries” and “​would cover a very large territory.” This kind of regional deal between the Arab world – and perhaps, the entire Muslim world​​ – and the Jewish State of Israel was always the only deal to be had: a very big deal to solve a very big problem.

The Real Situation of Arab Citizens of Israel

editor 21 January 2017

By Robert Cherry.. The liberal press has two staples in its coverage of Israeli politics. It consistently stresses that the major obstacle to settling the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the behavior of anti-Arab right-wing politicians, led by Naftali Bennett, who promote more Jewish settlements in the West Bank. We are also told incessantly that Jewish anti-Arab attitudes, nourished by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s rhetoric, threaten the civil rights of and the opportunities available to Israel’s Arab citizens.

Why is Europe turning a blind eye to Islamic occupation?

editor 1 December 2016

By Zvi Mazel.. National and religious minorities in the Arab region have not been given independence or autonomy; They are still trying to overthrow their Arab-Muslim occupiers. In a world beset by terrorism and humanitarian disasters, the international community remains fixated on the State of Israel. The one and only state of the Jewish people, back in their historical homeland, is a beacon of democracy in the Muslim-Arab sphere devoid of human rights, left behind by social and economic progress and subject to frequent bouts of bloody unrest. Yet Israel is singled out, again and again, for condemnation.The European Union, self-appointed human rights watchdog, is at the forefront of the attacks. This is a puzzling phenomenon. (more…)

The fertility rates of Jewish and Arab women were identical for the first time in Israeli history in 2015, according to figures released by the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics on Tuesday (November 15, 2016) to mark International Child Day.

Everyone Loves Israel—Until They Don’t

editor 17 November 2016

By Robert Satloff.. Arthur Herman is right: Israel is hot—diplomatically, not just meteorologically. Old adversaries are burying the hatchet; new friendships are blossoming; and suitors around the world are jockeying for the attention of Israeli leaders, diplomats, generals, scholars, investors, consultants, and hi-tech entrepreneurs. Little of this is known—and less is appreciated—in the Washington-to-Boston corridor that defines “conventional wisdom” for the large majority of Americans, who are told that Israel is increasingly isolated around the world.

Why Palestinians can’t make peace

editor 28 October 2016

By Post Editorial Board.. If you needed any more clues as to why a final Israeli-Palestinian settlement remains so elusive, consider the case of four Arabs who accepted an invitation for the holiday of Sukkot in the nearby Israeli settlement of Efrat on Thursday (October 20, 2016): The Palestinian Authority arrested them.
