What I Don’t Want to Write About

editor 9 October 2017

By Paula R. Stern.. This is a map of a small Jewish village called “Har Adar”. To the right, you will see the Arab village of Bayt Surik. This morning, very early, dozens of Arabs woke up in that village, got dressed, had their breakfast and prepared to go to work. One man said goodbye to his wife (or perhaps his wives) and left his four children. He was 37 years old…he’ll never be 38. He got dressed. [Photo top right: Har Adar viewed from the west. Wikipedia](more…)


A Jewish-Catholic Partnership against Islamist Violence?

editor 29 September 2017

By Lawrence A. Franklin.. The Pope’s failure vociferously to denounce Islam-based violence concerns many among both Church hierarchy and lay people. The pope’s statements regarding Islam and his refusal directly to discuss mounting Christian martyrdom in Muslim lands defy credulity. Whether his words are wilful blindness, innocent naiveté, or intellectual ignorance of the nature of Islam itself, it is confusing many of the faithful.

The Palestinians’ “Jewish Problem”

editor 27 September 2017

By Bassam Tawil.. According to the Palestinians, the two US envoys seem fully to have endorsed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s positions instead of representing the interests of the US. Why? Because they are Jews, and as such, their loyalty is to Israel before the US. Perhaps this view is a projection of what many Muslims would do if the circumstances were reversed. (more…)


How to reduce terrorism

editor 7 September 2017

By Maj. Gen. (ret.) Yaakov Amidror.. The Islamic State group has struck again. In a matter of days, there were major terrorist attacks in Barcelona and stabbings in Siberia and Finland and a few other incidents that remain murky. The headlines are screaming and the analysts explain how little the Europeans know about fighting terrorism, and some even see these events as the beginning of the end of Europe. Another example of blowing things out of proportion. (more…)


Israel’s enemies have the people hooked on so-called ‘humiliation’

editor 30 August 2017

By Rabbi Abraham Cooper.. What’s the toughest habit to kick? Turns out, in the Middle East it’s humiliation.

Yes, according to the Palestinian Authority (PA), the explosion of hate, violence, and murder against their Jewish neighbors was ignited by Israel. The source of the humiliationIsrael’s installation of metal detectors on Jerusalem Old City’s Temple Mount near the al Aqsa Mosque. This, after Israeli Arabs machine gunned two Israeli (Druze) police officers from the sacred ground to Judaism and Islam. Their weapons were smuggled onto the Temple Mount before the shootings.

The Slaughter Of The Salomon Family

editor 29 August 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. So now the non-stop Palestinian Arab incitement against Israel has resulted in yet more Palestinian barbarism. The Salomon family had gathered for a Friday night (July 21, 2017) Shabbat dinner, celebrating the birth of a grandchild, in their home in the Israeli settlement of Halamish. A 19 year-old Palestinian burst in armed with a large knife and began stabbing members of the family. (more…)

The argument is about Jews, not metal detectors

editor 26 July 2017

By Jonathan S. Tobin/ 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.

Interrogation of Palestinian terrorist proves: PA payments motivate terror

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…)
