MYTH: Israel is responsible for blockading Gaza.

From Israel: “No Respite from the Horror!!”

From Israel: The Chutzpah and the Stupidity!!

The chutzpah (gall, insolence) belongs to many of the Arabs inside of Israel and beyond.  The stupidity can be attributed to those of our purported leaders who condone or tolerate that chutzpah. What prompts this description (in this instance) is what happened in recent days with regard to the Damascus …

Into the fray: Lapid on Gaza – Stupid is as stupid does

Lapid’s recent Gaza policy proposal is just one more display in an appalling catalogue of his imbecility-cum-ignorance, which, in light of his electoral success, is—in itself—a grave indictment of the Israeli voter  Two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe—attributed to Albert …

Between Morality and Bias.

Hamas aims to kill as many Israeli civilians as possible, but its rockets kill many more “Palestinians” than Jews because many of those rockets—in this case 680—misfire and explode inside Gaza. The death and destruction caused is, of course, usually blamed on Israel. In the 2021 May violence started by …

From Israel: “Furious!!!”

I write on Tuesday night, impelled by the day’s events, knowing there are multiple stories to tell here, and that I must be succinct. Today was the Jerusalem Flag Parade, which had been postponed from Jerusalem Day because of Hamas rockets, re-scheduled for last week – when the police vetoed …

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 …
