editor 5 October 2017

Yaakov Lappin/JNS.org.. The recent terror attack that killed three Israelis in Har Adar is a reminder of the fragile security situation across Israel, Judea and Samaria (the territories), and Gaza.  Most of the time, the situation looks calm.

Bright Days and Dark Days

editor 21 April 2017

By Paula R. Stern.. For many in Israel, it has been a week of vacation, celebrating a holiday that starts off with a lot of work and then melts down to good food, good rest, good times with family. But interwoven in the good of the last week, there have been underlying elements of darkness that make me nervous. I’ve been watching the situation in North Korea and Syria.

Why Don’t Supporters of Palestinians Care About PA Abuses?

editor 3 April 2017

By Mitchell Bard..On college campuses and beyond, support for the Palestinians has been portrayed as a human rights campaign. While the antisemitic BDS movement is — according to its founders and leaders — a crusade to make Israel disappear, it has attracted many naïve supporters who believe ostracizing Israel will somehow help the Palestinians achieve independence. BDS has been an unmitigated failure, but it has shielded the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Hamas from criticism for their human rights abuses. (more…)

Palestinians: When Fatah Becomes the Problem

editor 12 November 2016

By Khaled Abu Toameh.. The upcoming conference coincides with mounting tensions in Fatah, the result of internal bickering and growing discontent with Abbas’s autocratic rule. Since its founding 50-some-odd years ago, the secular Fatah faction and its leaders have brought nothing but disaster, not only to Palestinians, but to other Arabs as well.
