UNRWA is not a neutral, efficient, indispensable, or moderating force, nor can it simply be fixed by better oversight. It must be replaced for the sake of Palestinians and Israelis alike.
The training and equipping of civilian rapid-response security squads on a massive scale everywhere in Israel is more necessary and urgent than ever. This requires both government investment and volunteer mobilization, including participation of the haredi sector.
The serial truces Israel has accepted to obtain hostage releases from Hamas have run their course. At this point, their long-term disadvantage outweighs the immediate advantage achieved. Therefore, it is time to reengage the enemy in full-scale combat until its complete destruction.
Israeli leaders have no mandate to scale-back the assault on Hamas. In memory of my beloved young friend, the brave Israeli soldier and singer-scholar of a soul, Yonadav Levenstein, may the Heavens avenge his death.
Reticence to condemn Hamas amounts to collusion against Israel. Hesitancy to express explicit support for Israel at this time, which also will mean unequivocally backing Israel in the many months ahead of tough fighting to crush Hamas, is tantamount to siding with the enemy.
Shattered by Hamas atrocities are decades of faulty strategy. Not shattered by Hamas is the age-old stamina and spirit of the Jewish People; the grit to survive and thrive.
The only real power standing in the way of Palestinian terrorism and Iranian hegemonism is Israel. Alas, no understanding of this reality could be found in media reporting on, or the reactions in most Western capitals to, the IDF operation in Jenin this week.
