Abbas is complicit in the assassination attempt on Yehuda Glick. Abbas has explicitly exhorted and incited to Palestinian violence against Israel in Jerusalem.

Thugs on the Temple Mount

Oct 16, 2014

The Netanyahu government has a responsibility to run the radical Islamic ruffians off the Mount, and punish them for attempting to turn the holy site into Armageddon.

Watchmen for the walls of Jerusalem

Sep 19, 2014

If Israel truly wants to hold on to a united Jerusalem, it must act forcefully to restore security in the holy city. The Netanyahu government seems indecisive or asleep as Israeli sovereignty over many of Jerusalem’s eastern neighborhoods, Arab and Jewish, is being challenged.

Welcoming the Pope

May 23, 2014

Jews no longer need to scorn the Church, and Pope Francis should be warmly welcomed to Israel. But when he visits next week, the Pope ought to speak ever more forthrightly about recognition and security for Israel. I’ve penned some language for him to use…

Regaining control in Jerusalem

Apr 25, 2014

The Netanyahu government has become too accepting of Palestinian violence in the city and too tolerant of Wakf chutzpa on the Temple Mount. Only when Israel acts in concrete fashion to shore up its stake in Jerusalem can the city be secured.

Jerusalem is quite a cherry to pick if you’re going to trim your party platform! Its elimination is not something trivial. The fact that the Democrats anyway decided to drop the reference to united Jerusalem from their platform speaks volumes about what we can expect from an Obama second term.

Fighting for Jerusalem

Nov 11, 2011

Leave a Comment

The demand that Jerusalem be sundered into parts is unwise, and unfair both to Jewish history and to Israel’s fine stewardship of the city. It is an obstacle to peace, not something that helps bring peace now. It is not the Zivotofsky petition that “jeopardizes the vital interests of Israel” but Peace Now’s demand that Jerusalem be divided.
