From Israel: Facing Bitter Truth Squarely!!

Along with many of you, I have been watching the unfolding of the situation in Afghanistan with a sense of pain and horror: The shocking, alarming failure of the Biden administration: The abandonment of American citizens and Afghan allies, the emerging terror. But we must not fashion this as an …

From Israel: “A VERY Bad Idea!!”

Prime Minister Bennett is leaving Israel for Washington DC tomorrow (Tuesday) for a snap 48 hour visit. He is scheduled to meet with Biden on Thursday. Credit: Mishpaha Magazine That meeting is the very bad idea that I am referring to here.  (Not that there are not many others.) Rabbi …

From Israel: “We Are Surrounded!!”

Last I wrote, I titled my posting “Danger: Within and Without.”  I began with dangers that lurk within, which I suggested pose the greatest threat to Israel. Fervently do I wish that the one issue I discussed in that posting – a reluctance of our left-leaning Supreme Court to stand …

From Israel: “The One Foot Theory!”

I have a good friend who will say to me now and again: “You just put one foot in front of the other and keep going.” Most of the time I’ve responded by sighing, and saying, “Yes, I know…” But in recent days, as I have struggled to wrap my …

From Israel: “Damn It! No!!”

The hostilities between Israel and Hamas stopped at 2 AM on Friday morning, and the quiet in this regard seems to be holding at the moment.  But from Israel’s perspective, was this a good move? No!  It was done too soon. When last I posted, on Thursday, May 20, Israel …

How, pray tell, might we “judaize” Jerusalem when it is Jewish? The amusement is fleeting, however, for there is nothing funny about the Arabs’ motivation …

From Israel: The Inmates Are Running the Asylum!!

From Israel: “Because We Must!!”

First order of concern: We must stay in touch with news of significance, even – or especially – if it is unsettling or worse. There is no way I will ignore the situation in the US; I will continue to deal with it going forward, as I see the need. …

From Israel: “Lunacy and Other Aberrations!!”

The situation has been rather crazy here in Israel, with a government that doesn’t function like one. I need to look at this shortly.  However, when I consider what’s going on here, my response (which will not surprise regular readers) is that it is “small potatoes” compared to what’s happening …

From Israel: Heaven Help Us!!

The US, first. Then Israel and a good part of the world — not just the West, but also Sunni Arab. What I am referring to are the policies and practices that would emanate from a Biden administration, should he ‒ and this is where we cry “Heaven help us” …
