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…)

Jewish, Arab fertility rates in Israel on par for first time

editor 18 November 2016

By Time of Israel Staff.. Arab rate drops, Jewish rate rises, and women in both groups now give birth to an average of 3.13 children, highest in OECD. 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.

In dramatic vote, UNESCO Jerusalem resolution passes with slim support

editor 26 October 2016

By Tovah Lazaroff.. It was presumed from the outset that the 21-member World Heritage Committee would approve the resolution, particularly given its unfriendly roster of states. In a dramatic upset the World Heritage Committee approved Wednesday (October 26, 2016), with less than a majority vote, a resolution that ignored Jewish ties to the Temple Mount.

There Has Never Been a Sovereign Arab State in Palestine

editor 12 September 2016

By Eli E. Hertz.. The artificiality of a Palestinian identity is reflected in the attitudes and actions of neighboring Arab nations who never established a Palestinian state themselves. The rhetoric by Arab leaders on behalf of the Palestinians rings hollow. Arabs in neighboring states, who control 99.9 percent of the Middle East land, have never recognized a Palestinian entity. [Photo top right: Arab states of the Persian Gulf] (more…)

Why the BDS Movement is Destroying a Future Palestinian State

editor 7 September 2016

By Fred Maroun.. Israel could have played by Arab rules and deported all Arabs in the land it occupied, but it did not. Precisely because Israel respected the human rights of Arabs, and despite its own self-interest, Israel gave the Palestinians a platform from which to seek the destruction of Israel. One can only hope that the Palestinians, like Egypt and Jordan, will soon decide to live in peace with a neighbor which turned out to be far better in the way it treats Palestinians than the Palestinians’ own “Arab brothers” — not all that bad, after all. One can only hope that Palestinian leaders will start promoting a culture of peace rather than a culture of hate. (more…)

Why Palestinians prefer to work for Israeli employers

editor 29 July 2016

By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik.. PA Central Bureau of Statistics: Israelis pay Palestinian workers twice what they are paid by Palestinian employers. Israeli Arab attorney: The Israeli labor law is very good. Unfortunately Palestinian middlemen steal half or two thirds of women’s salaries. Palestinian worker: Double salary draws Palestinian workers to Israel; in the PA they suffer exploitation. Statistic: “120,000 [Palestinians] work in Israel and the settlements” [Official PA TV, Workers’ Affairs, May 11, 2016].
