When the going gets tough… the tough get going. When this country is under attack, Israel’s friends need to be more determined than ever to defend it.
My Buby (grandmother) taught me that Jews should never be a “shmatte,” a dishrag; never allow others to treat Jews like dirt. That truism certainly applies to the modern, sovereign state of the Jews, the State of Israel.

The world knows only how to criticize and demonize Israel. What a shame. But at least Jews should know and appreciate Israel’s humanity. On Yom Haatzmaut, we can all add this to our calculations of kevod shamayim and kiddush Hashem (the glorification of G-d’s name in the world) that has been wrought by the State of Israel.
Islamic violence has become the Temple Mount status quo. This is the “status quo” that Western leaders wish to preserve?! ... Israel must parry Palestinian violence and Islamic incitement in Jerusalem by laying out a new diplomatic initiative to solidify Israel’s rights on Har HaBayit.
