Chanukah 2018: Same Enemies, Same Conflicts

Today is the first day of Chanukah. And here is a timeless message from Simon the Maccabee: “We have not taken a foreign land, nor did we take the property of others — for this is the inheritance of our fathers, which was for some time unjustly possessed by our enemies. But we, having the opportunity, […]

David O. Selznick Pitches a Movie in Israel

In 1958, producer David O. Selznick had an idea for a Biblical epic. He explained to screenwriter Edward Anhalt, “I want to combine Mary the sister of Lazarus, the adulteress Jesus saved from the stoning, the whore who washed His feet, and the Mary Magdalene who was the first to see Him resurrected, into one […]

New York Daily News Engages in Blood Libel

  The IslamoNazis who call themselves Palestinians and who live in the IslamoNazi/Palestinian state of Gaza, ruled by Hamas, a terrorists gang, have been organizing violent riots on Israel’s border for the past few weeks. The ostensible purpose of the riots is the march to return. Return meaning to the state of Israel.

Why the U.S. Embassy Move to Jerusalem is a Good Thing for the Civilized World

Do you remember how the left told us that anti-Semitism was resurgent in America because of President Trump’s election? Funny how the left always projects its own ideological pathologies on Conservatives.

President Trump’s SOTU: Americans Are Dreamers Too

In spite of the fact that the speech was too long (any speech that runs longer than 7 minutes is too long) I loved President Trump’s SOTU. It was filled with a love of America, pride in our military, respect for our flag, and an almost mystical vision of the American people and their unique […]

IslamoNazi Abbas Digs His Own Grave

Dr. Mordechai Kedar, who knows more about the Arab-Muslim world than most Arab-Muslims, explains the two-and-a half-hour rant delivered by Mahmoud Abbas. World leaders seemed shocked, just shocked by the sheer looniness and Castro-like length of the Abbas rant. But these overbred, overeducated members of the diplomatic corps have conveniently ignored Abbas’ infamous history: he […]

Why the International Community Should Follow Trump’s Lead on Jerusalem

President Trump has fulfilled a promise that, frankly, I did not believe he would keep. But by recognizing Israel’s capital as Israel’s capital he has proven himself a friend of Israel and the Jewish people in a manner that is unique among American presidents. It would be interesting to discover how Trump arrived at this […]

Chanukah 2017: The Battle of the Maccabees Continues

Jerusalem the Eternal Undivided Capital of the Jewish State

There is a great deal of hand wringing now that President Trump is officially recognizing reality: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, and that the U.S. embassy will move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The Jew-hating Arabs warn that this recognition will cause violence. The gutless EU warns that this move will derail the so-called peace […]

Seraphic Secret in Israel, 2017

Karen and I spent the last days of Succos in Israel. Mostly we stayed in Efrat with Karen’s brother David and his lovely family. But we did manage to spend one day in Jerusalem where we headed straight to the holy Kotel, the Western Wall, the remnants of the Second Temple.

Yesterday — on Sunday, June 11 — Daniel Greenfield drew the largest audience we have ever had for our son Ariel’s memorial lecture.

The Reunification of Jerusalem, 1967

In honor of Yom Yerushalayim, Jerusalem Day, here’s a short film that tells the story of Israel’s 1967 battle to rescue Jerusalem from Jordanian assault, and the ensuing reunification of Jerusalem. My father  z’l, said to me, “This is a miracle.” He was right.

On Palestinian Statehood

For the past year Bret Stephens has expended an enormous amount of time and energy bashing Donald Trump. But Stephens must know that only Donald Trump would appoint David Friedman, a Torah observant Jew and proud Zionist, as America’s new ambassador to Israel. Stephens must also understand that only Donald Trump would bring Jared Kushner, […]
