Israel’s silenced majority

editor 15 April 2017

By Caroline Glick.. During Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s meeting with US President Donald Trump at the White House in February (2017), the premier was reportedly taken by surprise when Trump gently prodded – ahead of their meeting – for Israel to “hold back on settlements for a little bit.” Since their meeting, Trump’s prod that Israel curtail the property rights of Jews in Judea and Samaria has been the central issue Trump’s chief negotiator Jason Greenblatt has discussed with Netanyahu and his representatives.

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…)

The Palestinian “Internationalization” Strategy: End of the Road?

editor 23 March 2017

By Amos Yadlin and Kobi Michael.. When the Netanyahu government replaced the Olmert government and Barack Obama assumed the United States presidency, the Palestinians adopted an “internationalization strategy.” This choice reflected the Palestinian skepticism about the possibility of bridging the gaps with Israel and the hope that the international community would accept their tripartite demand: (1) establishment of a Palestinian state (2) on the basis of the 1967 borders (3) with East Jerusalem as its capital.

editor 4 March 2017

By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik.. For a released Palestinian terrorist who murdered 3 Israeli soldiers, the 27 years he spent in Israeli prisons was his ticket to higher education. Terrorist murderer Hilal Jaradat:
“In prison I studied at the Hebrew University in the history and political science faculties. I read approximately 6,000 books in prison, and I translated for many of the prisoners.” [Donia Al-Watan, independent Palestinian news agency, Jan. 26, 2017] (more…)

What kind of state would Palestine be? A Jordan, or an ISIL-dominated Syria?

editor 27 February 2017

By Father Raymond J. de Souza.. What might a Palestinian state look like? Would it look like Jordan or Egypt? Or like Syria, Iraq, Libya or Yemen? Or Lebanon? Or like Gaza?

How to get to two states: Netanyahu shines a bright light on the obstacles to a lasting peace

editor 25 February 2017

By New York Daily News.. Setting aside a perplexing remark by President Trump, he and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a strong and important show of unity at the White House Wednesday (February 15, 2017). Bad news first: Trump’s apparent ignorance of the two-state solution, which for very good reason has been the basis for Mideast peace negotiations for decades. “I’m looking at two states and one state. I like the one that both parties like.” (more…)

Pres. Trump: Palestinians Must Earn a Two-State Solution

editor 24 February 2017

By Alan Dershowitz.. The time has come for the US to tell the Palestinians that they must negotiate with Israel if they want a Palestinian state, and must agree to end the conflict. President Donald Trump raised eyebrows when he mentioned the possibility of a one-state solution. The context was ambiguous and no one can know for sure what message he was intending to convey. One possibility is that he was telling the Palestinian leadership that if they want a two-state solution, they have to do something. [Photo top right: PM Netanyahu and President Trump.

editor 20 February 2017

By Francine Wolfisz.. Francine Wolfisz chats to director Martin Himel about his new film, Eyeless in Gaza, which reveals how journalists are forced to tow the line. Seasoned journalist Matti Friedman had noticed all was not as it should be at the Associated Press (AP) bureau in Gaza.

Then they witnessed a rocket launch right beside their office, endangering the lives of staff and nearby residents – and yet AP did not report it. (more…)
