editor 21 March 2018

By Elior Levy, Ariela Sternbach.. Dalal Mughrabi [Photo top right], who led the terror cell that murdered 38 Israelis, among them 13 children, in the 1978 attack, is often glorified and immortalized in the Palestinian Authority; new textbook for 5th graders includes entire chapter dedicated to her, romanticizing her actions. The Coastal Road massacre of 1978, when 11 terrorists hijacked a bus on the Coastal Highway and murdered 38 Israelis, including 13 children, left a deep scar on Israeli society. Palestinian society, meanwhile, glorifies the killers, particularly cell leader Dalal Mughrabi, who was killed in a fire exchange with security forces and over the years became one of the symbols of the Palestinian struggle.

Shin Bet Investigation Exposes Depth of Turkey’s Hamas Support

editor 24 February 2018

By Yaakov Lappin.. Hamas is operating freely on Turkish soil, gathering terrorist finances and looking for ways to upgrade the capabilities of its armed wing in Gaza, an Israeli security source has told the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT). It is highly likely that these activities occur with the knowledge of the Turkish authorities, the source said. The comments come after Israel’s Shin Bet domestic intelligence agency announced the arrest of two suspects — including a Turkish national — on the suspicion of working for Hamas in Turkey.

Time for the US to walk away from the PLO

editor 12 February 2018

By Caroline Glick.. On Tuesday (January 30, 2018) in Bethlehem, the Palestinians demonstrated the choice the Americans now face in their dealings with Fatah – the supposedly moderate PLO faction that controls the Palestinian Authority and the PLO. President Donald Trump and his advisers can play by Fatah’s rules or they can walk away. On Tuesday a delegation of diplomats from the US Consulate in Jerusalem came to Bethlehem to participate in a meeting of the local chamber of commerce. When they arrived in the city, Fatah members attacked them. Their vehicles with diplomatic license plates were pelted with tomatoes and eggs by a mob of protesters calling out anti-American slogans.

We Have Failed Joseph; Rachel Still Weeps

editor 9 February 2018

By Paula R. Stern.. Last night, my youngest son went to Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus/Shechem with his yeshiva. It is a place I dream of going, a place that calls to me; Joseph calls to me. I’ve been to Rachel’s tomb in Bethlehem many times, and each time I am there, I almost feel that I owe her an explanation for why I have never been to her son’s grave. I feel like I am supposed to report to her, to tell her he is well. Yes, I know he is dead (I’m not insane). And I know he died thousands of years ago…and still we remember him. Still we remember her. (more…)

Trump’s quarterly Iran headache

editor 20 January 2018

By Caroline Glick.. It’s that time of the year again. In accordance with the Iranian Nuclear Agreement Review Act, by Sunday US President Donald Trump must either certify that Iran is complying with the nuclear deal his predecessor Barack Obama concluded with the Iranian regime, or he must announce that Iran is breaching the accord. Last October (2017), after angrily certifying compliance at his two previous deadlines, Trump decertified Iranian compliance.

Abbas Tears Off The Mask

editor 19 January 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. For years, America, Britain and the EU have insisted that Mahmoud Abbas is a moderate and a statesman-in-waiting who deserves to be rewarded with a state of Palestine. For years, they have insisted that he is prepared to live alongside the state of Israel. For years, they have blamed Israel for intransigence in not believing this and thus not agreeing to give him land that they thought he would use to threaten the lives of its citizens. (more…)
