The argument is about Jews, not metal detectors

editor 26 July 2017

By Jonathan S. Tobin/JNS.org.. To an objective observer, the crisis that erupted in the aftermath of a bloody terror attack near Jerusalem’s Temple Mount makes no sense. Three Arab terrorists used guns they had smuggled up to the compound July 14 to kill two Israeli policemen, both of whom happened to be Druze rather than Jewish. In response, Israeli authorities set up metal detectors to prevent a recurrence of the crime.

editor 19 July 2017

By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik.. Palestinian terrorist: “I’ve accumulated large debts… if my son wants a shekel, I have nothing to give him… I decided to do something serious, such as committing murder, something in which I will both kill and die, and then my family will get money (i.e., from the PA) and will live comfortably… If I’m not able to kill soldiers, I’ll try settlers, guards – in other words any Israeli target – the important thing is that I will die and they will kill me, so that my children will receive a [PA] allowance and live happily”. [From transcript of Israeli Police interrogation of Palestinian terrorist].  (more…)

The Over-Dramatization of Israel’s “Dilemma”

editor 3 June 2017

By Dr. Max Singer.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 479, May 28, 2017

Executive Summary: Israel is not facing a dilemma about how much, if any,  land to give up from the West Bank, because the Palestinians will not agree to take land and cannot be forced to do so. The Palestinian community sees peace with Israel as defeat in their 100-year struggle. Continued Israeli occupation is one of the Palestinians’ best weapons against Israel, and they will not give it up while their war to eliminate Israel continues. (more…)

Dr. Sarah Halimi — a 66-year-old pensioner living in the Paris suburb of Belleville — was murdered in the early hours of April 4 by Kada Traore, a 27-year-old immigrant from Mali.

editor 26 May 2017

By Alan Dershowitz.. Every time a horrendous terrorist attack victimizes innocent victims we wring our hands and promise to increase security and take other necessary preventive measures.

Innocent Palestinian Girl Shot by Israeli Troops in Jerusalem

editor 22 May 2017

By Paula R. Stern.. A 16 year old Palestinian girl died yesterday. It’s true, she did. CNN will tell you. BBC will attempt to inform you. Reuters will shout it to the world. Even Times of Israel and Haaretz will quickly report about this and their reporters will mourn for that innocent child. That Innocent Child was shot by Israeli soldiers (never mind that the soldiers were not much older than the child). She was an innocent child, the daughter of someone. She’ll never live to marry, to bring children into this world. She’ll never raise them… (more…)
