The 'law' becomes another weapon against Israel

September 21, 2018

A small Bedouin settlement sprung up recently in the West Bank area of Israel. There were no permissions or permits obtained, and the structures were illegal. As prescribed by law, Israeli officials made plans to dismantle it. But then last week, the Palestinian Authority (PA) filed a claim with the International Criminal Court in The Hague regarding “Israel’s plans to raze a West Bank Bedouin village,” The Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported. Once again, Israel was cast in a misleading light ...

U.S. Defunds Hamas-Connected Charity

September 07, 2018

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week praised the Trump Administration’s decision to stop funding the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). This is a body created to aid Palestinians who left their homes after Israel became a nation in 1948. Until Friday, 30 percent – $300 million – of the agency’s funding came directly from U.S. coffers. That high price tag is, in part, because these “refugees” fall under a very liberal definition. UNRWA treats the descendants of ...

The Jerusalem Post in mid-August reported that the Islamic State (ISIS), “Is much larger than previously thought and still poses a significant threat.” The U.S. Defense Department, U.S. Congress and the United Nations estimate there are up to 30,000 ISIS fighters in Iraq and Syria, and the jihadis now are “eyeing a new caliphate in Afghanistan.” What, if anything, does the resurgence of ISIS mean to the Jewish people?

In recent...

You can give security and comfort to Holocaust survivors

August 14, 2018

I was thrilled by the spirit of celebration I found during my recent trip to Israel! Between the moving of America’s embassy to Jerusalem (marking an important recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital) and the 70th anniversary of Israel’s founding, the joy seemed apparent everywhere. For Orthodox Jews, secular Israelis and Messianic Believers in Yeshua (Jesus) – it seemed everyone was rejoicing over these historic events. But there was perhaps one exception. One group in Israel fin...

Spoiler Alert: Israel Knew

August 10, 2018

President Donald Trump frequently “goes off script,” and his impromptu remarks tend to send the media into a frenzy. Last week’s White House press conference with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte was such an occasion. When Trump was asked by a reporter if he’d be willing to talk with Iran’s leadership without preconditions, he said, “If they want to meet, we’ll meet.” The statement set off alarms worldwide. Despite Israel’s renowned intelligence skills, the international media claime...

At the peak of Israel’s tourist season, children and parents scrambled out of the Sea of Galilee last week as two ISIS rockets splashed down and exploded, creating a “blast wave” at Israel’s popular Gofra Beach.
