Interview on Jewish rights, anti-Zionism and general Jew hatred


This is an interview I did last week for a Mexican Jewish website on my views on defending Israel, on Israel’s rights and on anti-Jewish discrimination. The writer asked me specifically about why I got angry at Anshel Pfeffer for falsely claiming that Israel’s communities beyond the 1949 armistice lines are illegal in a panel we participated in at the…

Israel’s “gatekeepers” vs. democracy

In the balance hangs nothing less than the country’s ability to remain a democracy, where the people elect their leaders and the elected leaders govern the country. Presently, a powerful group of unelected, self-appointed “gatekeepers” is challenging the foundations of…

The next Hezbollah-Israel war


Israelis woke up last Tuesday morning to the news that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) had initiated a new campaign called “Northern Shield.” The mission, which began in the middle of the night between Monday and Tuesday, is to destroy attack tunnels that Hezbollah, the Iranian-controlled terror army in Lebanon, has excavated.

Israel’s deep state takes aim at Netanyahu


Israel’s administrative state is out of control. The Israeli police’s announcement on Sunday that the department is recommending that Israel’s Attorney General indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on charges of bribery and breach of trust is not a testament to the investigators’ bold determination to see that justice is done even among the most powerful.

Europe beats Iran’s war drums


Last Saturday, Iran’s “moderate” President Hassan Rouhani called Israel “a cancerous tumor” in a speech at the regime’s annual Islamic Unity Conference. Rouhani’s fellow speakers included deputy Hezbollah chief Naim Qassem and Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh.

While Airbnb boycotts, Israel builds its diplomatic strength


Airbnb’s partial boycott of Israel last week came just as the Arab world, Africa, and Eastern Europe moved closer to the Jewish state. These two diametrically opposed developments – one negative and one positive — showed that a race is on between competing global movements to determine whether Israel will sink or swim in the international area. On the negative…

Hamas and Fatah unmasked


The recent almost-war with Hamas taught us a lot about the terror regime. It also taught us a lot about Hamas’s rival, Fatah, and the Palestinian Authority it controls in Ramallah. Israel’s most urgent task is to understand the implications of what we now know. The first thing we learned about Hamas is that its control over Gaza is all…
