If Israel will not stand up for the Jews…?

If Israel will not stand up for the Jews, how can diaspora Jews do so? The Elder of Ziyon writes: Israeli media are reporting that Israel is implementing a plan to severely limit the number of Jews who can visit the Temple Mount, while imposing no such restrictions on non-Jewish …

Times of Israel Staff tells us.. An annual poll released on Tuesday showed growing distrust between Israel’s Jewish and Arab populations, with over one-third of Jewish Israelis maintaining that the government should encourage their Arab compatriots to emigrate. The Israel Democracy Index also found that over half (55.7%) of Jewish …

Judenrat: Beinart.

UPDATE:    I made a mistake.  The term “Judenrat” is not appropriate.  I should have gone with “Kapo,” instead. ==== Peter Beinart is a Judenrat. This is to say, he acts as an agent and intermediary of the enemies of the Jewish people while claiming to be a friend to the …

New York Times ignores murder of Jewish/American peace activist.

Those of us who care about Israel, and those of us who know a thing or two about the New York Times, know that just as the Times was indifferent to the Shoah while it was happening, so they are generally indifferent to Arab attacks on Jewish people today.  The …

Eyeing Temple Mount Terrorists.

This should prove interesting. As I write, The Algemeiner is reporting that Israel and Jordan will cooperate in the installation of video surveillance cameras on the Temple Mount, perhaps within days.  The Palestinian-Arabs do not like it because they know such footage will show the world who the aggressors are on …

Netanyahu and the Nazi Mufti .

I feel reasonably certain that there is not a single individual on the planet today under more intense political pressure than Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. If the guy blinks in the rain he gets smacked around from people throughout the world for not doing it correctly.  I have never …

Democratize the Temple Mount.

It is unacceptable that Israel maintains prejudicial policies toward Jews at the holiest site to the Jewish people. Benjamin Netanyahu keeps assuring Barack Obama, and the American Department of State, that Israel intends to maintain the status quo at the Temple Mount. EOZ columnist, Vic Rosenthal, proprietor of Abu Yehuda, has …

Greg Brock, the Jews, and the New York Times.

Throughout the twentieth-century the New York Times was never a friend or ally to the Jewish people, nor is it a friend or ally to the Jewish people today.During World War II, the Times buried the Holocaust deep within its pages and, as far as I am concerned, it will …

Jihad and the Destruction of History

Islamists and Jihadis love to blow things up. Islamic Jihad just called for a return to suicide bombings against Jews in Israel, but when they aren’t blowing up Jews they just love to blow to smithereens the ancient antiquities of other cultures. Anyone who follows the chaos which is the …

The Impending Transformation of Europe.

There are some in the West, such as American FOX News commentator, Bill O’Reilly, who claim that Europe is under “invasion.”  The implication of such language is that ultimately, underneath it all, there is something nefarious about Syrians fleeing war and Arabs, in general, fleeing economic deprivation in order to …

The Single State

For years I thought that the only reasonable solution to the ongoing Arab war against the Jews was the two-state solution.  A single state solution, we were told, would either undermine Israel as a democratic state or it would undermine Israel as a Jewish state.  Israel could be Jewish, democratic, …

Standing Up.

Writing in the Times of Israel, Elhanan Miller tells us: Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon on Wednesday declared as “unlawful organizations” two Islamic Movement groups who harass Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount, rendering membership or financing of the groups illegal.

Matisyahu Excoriated and Redeemed.

I was on the number 7 bus heading up Haight Street in San Francisco talking to one of my more interesting and edgy students from City College of SF a few years ago. For reasons that elude me, now, I mentioned the great American Jewish Reggae musician, Matisyahu. We were …

The Immorality of the Jews

The recent firebomb attack by “extremist Jewish settlers” resulting in the death of 18-month old Ali Dawabsha, combined with the recent attack on the Gay Pride Parade in Jerusalem which saw the  murder of 16-year old Shira Banki, has Israeli-Jews nervous, sad, and introspective. Many in the West will tell …

Jim Crow for Jews & the Artificial Construction of Palestinian National Identity

The western-left today thinks that the Jews are oppressive to Muslims in the Middle East. They believe that Jewish Israelis are brutalizing and ethnically-cleansing the innocent “indigenous” population. In previous decades the so-called “Palestinian narrative” has taken hold of the western imagination.  Within that narrative, vicious and militaristic Jews marched …

The 1980s, the American Left, and Rubik’s Bomb.

When I was a college student in the 1980s the American Left opposed nuclear proliferation. Mainstream, regular Democrats often furrowed their brows at the American nuclear program during the Cold War and many called for a scaling back of the arsenal. A popular book at the time, among idealistic, politically-inclined …
