 Should Israel Reconquer Gaza?

Should Israel Reconquer Gaza?

The most basic responsibility of a government is to protect its citizens. The Olmert government is not fulfilling this responsibility., 16/11/2006 23:45
 Dangerous for Israel

Dangerous for Israel

From Olmert's point of view, the Disengagement was a great success. There is not a single Jew left in Gaza; even dead Jews had to be removed from their graves and buried elsewhere, to satisfy the Arab enemy., 28/03/2006 11:27
 Chanukah 2005

Chanukah 2005

The real battle of the Maccabees was not only against the Syrian-Greek army of Antiochus. It was also against their fellow Jews, who were willing to sell out their identity, the Holy Temple and to allow Jerusalem to become a Greek city. All this in order to obtain for themselves "the good life" and to become "enlightened citizens of the world.", 28/12/2005 23:37
 Condi Supplies the Arab Hangman

Condi Supplies the Arab Hangman

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has betrayed the Jewish people once again. He has allowed US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to dictate Israel's terms of surrender to the "Palestinians" of Gaza, who replaced the Jewish residents forcibly expelled by their own government., 18/11/2005 01:00
 But We Never Got a Warning

But We Never Got a Warning

Recently there has been a marked increase in terror attacks against Israeli citizens. The Sharon Government laments that "we never got a warning", as an excuse for the lack of response to the renewed Arab violence., 01/11/2005 00:00

Did Mahmoud Abbas repeat the PA's recent allegations to US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice?, 23/06/2005 14:26
 Israel, the "Miner's Canary" of the Western World

Israel, the "Miner's Canary" of the Western World

Alas, the world refuses to realize that the Jewish victims of Peres' Oslo Accords and Sharon's refusal to protect his own citizens had already resulted in 1,600 murdered Jews. This should have been proof enough that the Jews have again played the part of the "miners' canary" for the entire world. , 06/06/2005 23:12
 A Massive Policy Wreck Waiting to Happen

A Massive Policy Wreck Waiting to Happen

Recently, the Palestinian Authority sent a public birthday greeting to Saddam Hussein: ?We wish him long life for the sake of Iraq and to free the Arab nation from the enslavement of foreign imperialism...Abu Mazen is a Holocaust denier who in his doctoral thesis, which later became a book, doubted that the gas chambers were used to kill Jews., 22/05/2005 12:07

Give Them Cause to Worry

It is a matter of life and death, not only for tiny Israel, but also for the mighty United States. And I speak here as a concerned American citizen, as well as someone who enjoys her spiritual home in Jerusalem., 04/04/2005 18:18
 "Hast Thou Murdered and Also Inherited?"

"Hast Thou Murdered and Also Inherited?"

Do you remember the story in the Bible about King Ahab? This famous story is found in the First Book of Kings, Chapter 21. There is a chilling resemblance between this story and the events in the Holy Land today., 27/02/2005 18:28
 Say No to Deportation!

Say No to Deportation!

There is a rapidly growing, strong opposition on the part of the Israeli public to Ariel Sharon's dictatorial Disengagement Plan. , 01/02/2005 12:11
 Worrisome Developments

Worrisome Developments

There has been a worrisome development for those of us who are against Ariel Sharon's Disengagement Plan. Member of Knesset Zvi Hendel made a shocking statement: he feels that Prime Minister Sharon is perfectly capable of giving an order to open fire on Jews who resist the security forces that come to evacuate them from their homes., 23/12/2004 17:54

 Who Will Fill Arafat's Bloody Shoes?

Who Will Fill Arafat's Bloody Shoes?

They may speak in a more cultured way. They may not walk around with a three-day stubble. They may give smooth interviews to the non-Muslim world, designed for Western ears. But underneath, they are all killers with one goal in mind - to annihilate the Jewish People and the Jewish State., 28/11/2004 18:14
 Ariel Sharon is Trampling Israeli Democracy

Ariel Sharon is Trampling Israeli Democracy

Sharon did fulfill campaign promises - those of his Labor opponent, Amram Mitzna, who had promised, if elected, that he would evacuate every last Jew from Gaza. Because of this very platform, Amram Mitzna was roundly defeated., 09/11/2004 18:53
 Who is Afraid of Women in Green?

Who is Afraid of Women in Green?

Let me not keep you in suspense. The Sharon government seems to be petrified of the Women in Green. Sounds ludicrous, doesn't it?, 10/10/2004 18:11
 The Lessons of the Holocaust

The Lessons of the Holocaust

The greatest tragedy of the present situation in Israel is that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is attempting to completely crush the democratic process. For good reason has he been nicknamed "the Bulldozer"., 27/09/2004 16:31
 Terrorism Knows No Borders

Terrorism Knows No Borders

Sadly, the Arab-Israeli conflict has for many years been treated as an utterly disconnected conflict by the world, and not part of the global Islamic Jihad (Holy War). People tend not to remember terror attacks against innocent civilians, especially when such terrorism takes place against Jewish victims. , 14/09/2004 23:31
 Deaf to the Voice of the People

Deaf to the Voice of the People

Immediately after the tragic attack in Beer Sheva, Sharon said that "there is no connection between this and the Disengagement Plan. This attack will not derail the Disengagement Plan.", 03/09/2004 00:23

A "post-Zionist leftist oligarchy" (consisting of the Sharon government, the courts and the leftist media) is trying to subjugate the people of Israel, both physically and spiritually., 01/08/2004 16:05
 Do Not Let Jewish History Be Erased

Do Not Let Jewish History Be Erased

Okay, let's again make this clear once and for all - Gaza is Jewish land promised by <I>Hashem</I> in the Bible as an everlasting inheritance; it was, in fact, apportioned to the Tribe of Judah (Joshua 15:47 and Judges 1:18) as part of Israel's eternal patrimony., 23/07/2004 03:12

I dare say the Founding Fathers would be shocked and aghast at what their descendants are permitting to be done to G-d's chosen people., 30/06/2004 23:35
 Israel Must Not Play Czechoslovakia

Israel Must Not Play Czechoslovakia

What happened to President Bush's desire for democracy in the Middle East, one of the reasons he went to war in Iraq? As far as democracy in Israel is concerned, Prime Minister Sharon has made himself a virtual dictator. , 06/06/2004 19:35

The question is often asked: Since the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) was founded in 1964, what were the Arabs liberating at that time? , 27/05/2004 20:36
 World War Against the Non-Muslim World

World War Against the Non-Muslim World

Proof positive that the Palestinian Jihad against Israel is not about territory: In 1964, the year the PLO was founded, article 24 of its Charter stated, "This organization does not exercise any territorial sovereignty over the West Bank in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the Gaza Strip..." The 1964 version of the PLO charter can be read on the <a target=_blank href=http://www.mfa.gov.il>Israe, 19/05/2004 21:57
 Death Knell for Secular Leadership

Death Knell for Secular Leadership

One has to search in vain among our present Jewish leadership for someone who believes and is faithful to what is written in the Bible. The latest pronouncement of Binyamin Netanyahu is very typical of secular leadership and its thinking. He has set conditions before he would approve of Ariel Sharon's plan to uproot Jews from the Promised Land. , 02/04/2004 11:38

I'm writing this article with a heavy heart, to tell you that the Ariel Sharon of today is not the leader we voted for. His actions are virtually those of a dictator, who has lost all Zionist convictions. , 04/01/2004 18:41
 The Maccabean Battles - Reloaded

The Maccabean Battles - Reloaded

What right does Prime Minister Sharon, or U.S. President George W. Bush, (or the State Department?) or the European Union, have to uproot these Jewish families from their homes? What right does anyone have to give away portions of the Jewish Homeland - the Land given to us eternally and irrevocably by G-d - to a bunch of terrorists, or to anyone else for that matter?, 21/12/2003 17:02
 ?You Can?t Dance With a Murderer?

?You Can?t Dance With a Murderer?

Sharon is virtually telling the Palestinian Arabs: you had better talk with us to get what you want, or else we will just have to give it to you anyway. With regard to this diplomatic plan, Sharon told his cabinet, ?It is clear that in the end we will not be sitting in all the locations where we?re now situated.?, 14/12/2003 16:00

 ?Like Sheep to the Wolf?

?Like Sheep to the Wolf?

"Sometimes bold, fervent desperation can constitute a legitimate response. Worse than that is what I see among Eastern Europe's Jewish masses - equanimity, fatalism. People behave as if they've been condemned and sentenced. I know of nothing like this in history and haven't encountered such surrender to destiny in novels.", 07/09/2003 18:53
 Crossing Red Lines

Crossing Red Lines

The Arabs must be laughing at us. In Arabic, of course, not in English. And by us, I mean Israel and America. It seems almost as if we have some strange need to be fooled. We want, at all costs, to <i>believe</i> in the goodness of our enemy. , 01/08/2003 14:29

 Using Israeli Currency

Using Israeli Currency

I find it easier to understand America's President Bush than Israel's Prime Minister Sharon. After all, as the saying goes, countries such as America have interests, not friends. But Ariel Sharon, by agreeing to the creation of a Palestinian state and the suicidal ?Road Map? dreamt up by Secretary of State Colin Powell and the Quartet, certainly not fans of Israel, has in effect betrayed his own c, 06/04/2003 21:40
