Has the Two-State Solution Gone Bust?

According to a recent survey, “support for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is at the lowest point in two decades. Less than half the Israeli population supports the concept (49%), and amazingly enough, support for it is even lower among Palestinians (43%). One of the questions that was …

The Woman Hates the Very Air I Breathe

Today, I met a Jewish woman who had nothing good to say about Israel, about Jerusalem, about Israelis, even about the very air we breathe. Okay, I’ll admit, I shmooze with strangers all the time. It’s one of the things I love about Israel – pretty much, most of us …

Pat Condell on Why He Supports Israel

Some people hate Pat Condell. Others, sit there and smile as he speaks. “All anyone needs to know about the Middle East conflict is that the Jews want peace, and the Arabs don’t.” Really, he said that! Watch this video and you’ll hear the rest!

Why Have We Never Defeated the Palestinians

Like most Israelis, I have dear friends living very close to the Gaza border. Some have, yet again, been forced to spend nights in bomb shelters with their children; others don’t have a shelter in their apartments and so rush to safety at the sound of a siren. We have …

Anti-Semitism of the BBC

Perhaps it is time to properly identify the very essence of the problem – both in terms of the Middle East AND in terms of BBC’s so-called reporting.
It’s time to call BBC’s reporting what it is – anti-Semitism.

The Time Has Come for War

It is always time for peace, but when do you know when it is time for war? That is the question Israel has been facing for the last few months. And, it would seem, tonight we have the answer. We could have been friends. Gaza and Israel. Neighbors certainly. When …

Israel Under Fire – Bombs on Cities

Tonight, Israel was bombed moments ago and moments after that. Seconds ago, and seconds before that. In each case, they are targeting civilians, cities, people. Are missiles bombs? No, I don’t know in the technical sense, but in the human sense, they explode and terrify. The destruction and terror caused …

What Women are Allowed to Do in Israel

Sadly, women are raised differently from men all the world over. From a very young age, most girls are not given the same rights, the same freedom as their young counterparts. No country is perfect when it comes to how women are treated. Not a one. Somewhere, somehow, there is …

Well, the Palestinians Have a New Plan

The Palestinian Authority has come up with their next plan of action at the United Nations. They want…breathe, don’t laugh…to ask the United Nations to oust Israel. According to a recent article in the Jerusalem Post, “Palestinian Authority is weighing a UN General Assembly Resolution to rescind Israeli membership in …

The Two State Solution Was Never Alive

The PLO Secretary General, Saeb Erekat, said Israel’s nation state law destroys the two state solution. He’s wrong, because you can’t destroy something that never even existed anyway. The two state solution is not dead, because it was never alive in the first place. For too long, the whole conflict between …

In the Heavens Today

In the heavens today, there are two men that weren’t there yesterday and by all rights, shouldn’t be there today. Actually, to say they are in the heavens is incorrect. One is in heaven. Now we know, his name is Yotam Ovadia. And that he was only 31 years old, a …
