Talibanism in Our MidstThey hate Israel, look like hareidim, but they are a fanatic fringe group - and have forgotten that "Thou shalt not kill" is in the Ten Commandments.
It's All the Fault of BushThe mantra that President Obama used at the start of his first presidential term is obviously the explanation. Isn't it?
He Has No StrategyAllies and countrymen alike were stunned at Obama's proclamation that the US doesn’t have a strategy to combat the vermin which are quickly spreading and threatening to engulf Europe.
Arrogance Gone AstrayHow did Tzipi Livni dare to meet with Abbas on her own volition and castigate Bennett for his ideas?
Sleepless in PretoriaA writer responds to a statement by South Africa's Foreign Minister who claims to be losing sleep due to Israel's building in Jerusalem.
Israel: SuperLand or RacistLand?When an amusement park set separate days for Arab and Jewish pupils to prevent ongoing harrassment of the Jewish children, they were called racist. The harrassing Arabs were not called by that epithet.
Bravo, Scandinavia!On August 8, 2012, Reuters reported the following:
Anti-Israel Scandinavian Flotilla Sets Sail for Gaza, Yet Again. The writer wants to 'welcome' them.
We Are Simply Crazynowhere, not ever, has there existed a people on this earth who have done everything within their power to help their sworn enemies to destroy them.
Massada - Never AgainNow that the ?cat is out of the bag,? so to speak, Israel needs to take advantage of the revelation and directly address Iran, Syria and other ?peace-loving? countries whose goal is the destruction of Israel. In an imaginary news conference, the following is what the world needs to hear Mr. Olmert say.
What About Our Children?Let me introduce some of these photographs to you. Not all, there are too many and I know your time is very precious. You have to attend a meeting with Hassan Nasrallah. Or is it Bashar Assad?
They PromisedThey were warned that the rockets will hit the major cities and will create mayhem and havoc in cities previously immune. And they labeled us inciters, troublemakers and rabble-rousers.
Response, Israel-StyleFirst of all, Israel made it known that the Hamas is responsible for the outrage and it is being held accountable. What that "responsibility" actually means, I have no idea. How will that "accountability" be exacted? Glad you asked.
Patience, Mr. Landau, PatienceThere is a definite foreign policy to counter Hamas, Mr. Landau. As an intelligent man with long years of political experience, you ought to know better.
The Twenty-Third Arab StateIt's nice to rant and rave against Russia's recognition of the upcoming Hamas government; yet, Israel was the first country in the world to hand-deliver $53 million dollars to Hamas.
Cry, My Beloved CountryDo you wonder what Ariel Sharon's next massive disengagement will do to almost 200,000 Jews who currently live and work in the West Bank? You don't? Is it because you assume that, as promised, the current expellees have been properly compensated and resettled?
Mmm, French ToastPresident Jacques Chirac, following in the footsteps of his predecessors down to DeGaul, have openly exhibited their compassion, understanding and complete backing of every terrorist individual or nation.
The Art of InsultingLilly's burial broke the law in that interment can only be done in a state-sanctioned and approved cemetery. Included in the complaint is another simple fact: the hill is not part of Sharon's property.
Sorry to Reject Your Article"I'm sorry to reject your latest article, but we've decided that the expulsion, its trauma and aftermath have been played out long enough. There are other subjects that need attention and we are shifting our focus to those areas."
Mommy, Why Are We Moving?Soundlessly, her mother bent down, hugged her tightly and kissed the top of her head. The soldiers, eyes averted, continued packing.
Evil Lurks in Its ShadowWhen was the last time you heard the Vatican, indeed, any country on the United Nations' 191-member roster, state emphatically that a reaction by Israel (any reaction in retaliation to the murder of its citizens) is "compatible with the rules of international law"? You don't recall? Stay calm.
But None Ever Cried for MeWhat of the slaughter of my children, 'ordinary, working-class' brothers and sisters in Haifa and Jerusalem, Ashdod and Ashkelon?
Beware: Genius At WorkIsrael doesn't need to retaliate in any way because the innocent Jewish blood exacted wasn't a part of the continuous and ongoing murder campaign against the Jews in Israel. It was merely a desperate show of weakness by a fading group of tired killers.
The Lesson"This is not an expulsion! To understand the difference, you need to truly comprehend the beauty of Sharon's plan. Once you do, I'm sure you'll see the light."
Out of My Mind"Your articles always project anger and frustration. Each line oozes with pain, fury and rage as you lash out with sarcasm. You have the literal poison pen. Why can't you write something with a happier note?"
Be Proud, Mr. Sharon, Be ProudThe vote in the Knesset to forcefully remove the Jewish inhabitants of the 25 settlements in Gaza and Shomron has erased forever the right of Jews to protest anti-Semitism anywhere in the world.
Democracy At Work"He always made mistakes and I always took advantage of his foolishness. But now, suddenly... he's playing by the rules! He is doing everything that the regulations of the game tell him to do. He is winning the game because he studied every rule, and he follows a game-plan. And that's not fair!"
Slight Misunderstanding"Sorry that I'm calling at such a late hour," she began to apologize, "but this is an urgent call from Secretary General Kofi Annan. He must speak to your prime minister immediately."
Open Letter to the Presbyterian Church (USA)I feel so terribly guilty, so justifiably reprimanded. Ever since you passed the resolution to divest from those companies that are doing business with Israel, I spend sleepless nights tossing and turning as nightmares run through my mind. Nightmares that replay the machinegun bullets that killed me and my two little children.
How Could You?Dressed in <I>Shabbos</I> finery, crowned with the <I>shtreimel</I>, clad in your long, silky <I>beketches</I>, you stood in morose silence and contemplation uttering a prayer to G-d on his behalf. You stood there with the Arab shawl and Palestinian emblem draped across your necks.
Daddy! How Can I Leave You?What's going on, Daddy? For the life of me I can not fathom the political situation and the total disintegration of the prime minister's mind. Last night, on the radio, I heard the prime minister say that he will throw out anyone who will refuse to be expelled willingly. This means, Daddy, that Mommy and I are going to be thrown out of our home if we refuse to go willingly.
RefusingIn less time than it takes for someone to spell the word "loser", Shimon Peres, Labor Party leader, spoke out angrily. Thus railed His Losership: "Eight hundred people can't hold hostage Israel's future."
<I>Yamin Kitzoni</I> - Radical Right"A Radical Rightist is a person whose ideas regarding these lands are considered outmoded, archaic and contrary to the opinions voiced by those who oppose and reject any ties to these lands."
Dear Judges: Take a WalkBravo! I applaud your ludicrous, pre-determined, one-sided and bigoted ruling vis-a-vis the fence we are building in Israel.
Farewell: PM Sharon's LetterThis letter is being sent to you a mere few minutes after the cabinet has accepted and voted on my expulsion demands. The democratically elected, fascist-run Government of Israel has triumphed once again. As such, you have become expendable.
Truth and Consequences"EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!" the bold, three-inch black letters proclaimed, "SHARON'S INGENUITY WILL BRING PEACE!"
Keeping Arafat NervousFrightened and shaking, Yasser Arafat jumped out of his bed in the semi-destroyed room in the Mukata.
An Open Letter to Alan DershowitzI am sure that your reading talents are at least as proficient as your writing skills. I suggest, therefore, that you begin to read - thoroughly, I may suggest - some of the written truths that you and other blind, liberal mannequins are so apt at pretending do not exist.
Neturei Karta or the AJCShame! Shame on both sides of such sordid, unforgivable spectacles. Not much more needs to be said.
Peres: I'm Against the TransferIn the aftermath of Ariel Sharon's bombshell pronouncement, his determination to forcibly evacuate settlers from their generation-long environment, these words were a soothing balm on the deep cut Sharon had inflicted. Peres, the perennial antagonist of the settlers and self-appointed defender of the Arab atrocity against his own people, has suddenly sprouted feathers of a different color?
Terror Does PayHundreds of thousands have gathered in Ramallah to hear Yasser Arafat speak out for the first time in many months. Raising their fists into the air, the crowd shouted in frenzied expectation of seeing their triumphant <i>ra'is</I>.
Playing With Fire[An Open Letter to Gil Na'amati, who was shot by Israeli soldiers as he climbed the partition fence near K'far Mas'cha.]
Oink! An Open Letter to President MubarakIn 'retaliation' for the attempted assassination of Mr. Maher, many obstacles and hardships have been placed in the path of those Palestinians traveling to or from Egypt. Their privileges are curtailed, their entry permits disregarded, their complaints ignored. Past sins committed by Arafat and his hooligans, specifically the happiness exhibited when President Anwar Sadat was assassinated, have on
I Lit a CandleI apologize. I was mistaken, Mr. Beilin. You do have a heart; a heart filled to bursting with sympathy for those who killed my little daughter. Compassion and empathy for the 'sufferings of the Palestinians.' Interesting, isn't it?
