Israel, What Have You Done For Us Lately?

Israel leads the world in the recycling of water; fully 90% of its waste water ends up being recycled. It leads the world in drip irrigation techniques, so essential for farmers in water-poor lands. It leads the world, too, in innovative methods of desalination that provide more than half of the country’s domestic water. And now Israel’s culture of innovation has brought forth a way to rid the world’s 60 million lakes of the blue-green algae that has been turning them into dead zones, where no life is possible. With the Israeli company BlueGreen’s technology, those millions of lakes threatened by blue-green algae can once again be made safe for fish, for wildlife, and for humans, while the algae can be safely, and cheaply, eradicated.

Palestinian Arson in Israel is Proof That Many Palestinians Do Not ‘Love’ the Land of ‘Palestine’

We are left with the recognition that the supposed Arab attachment to the land of “Palestine” is hollow; the Palestinian Arabs and Israeli Arabs who participate in arson, and the many others who cheer them on, taking satisfaction in such destruction, do not “love” the Land of Palestine. They are willing to contemplate the destruction of that land through arson, just as long as it deprives the hated Zionists of their farmlands and forests.

Why is Israel’s Jewish fertility rate thriving?

Jewish demography has been impacted by the Israeli state of mind, which is heavy on optimism, faith, patriotism, attachment to roots, collective responsibility and the centrality of children. Israeli Jews have a frontier mentality, in the face of Jewish history and contemporary existential threats in the stormy, violently intolerant, unpredictable and anti-“infidel” Middle East.

Israel Withholds $180 Million From PA — Why Not More?

Though the Biden Administration has been pledging large sums of money to the PA, despite the PA’s continuation of its “Pay-For-Slay” plan – giving large subsidies to terrorists and their families, both to reward past, and to incentivize future, terrorists – Israel at least is not going to contribute to that farce. The Bidenites may think they can get away with ignoring the Taylor Force Act, passed by Congress in 2018, which forbids any American aid from going to the PA as long as it continues with the “Pay-For-Slay” program, but Israel remains true to both the spirit and the letter of Taylor Force.

What the Biden Administration Should Do Now About the Palestinian Authority

The Palestinian Authority elections were called not because Palestinian Authority President-for-Life Mahmoud Abbas had suddenly become a believer in democracy, but because he wanted to put on a show for the Americans, with what he thought would be a reasonable facsimile of democracy, hoping thereby to turn on the spigot of aid that Trump had turned off. But when it became clear he would lose both the presidential and the parliamentary elections, he cancelled the elections.

Buoyed By Washington’s Support, the Palestinian Authority Shows Its Fangs

The Biden Administration seems to believe that the best way to oppose the terror group Hamas is to support its arch-rival, the Palestinian Authority. Mahmoud Abbas may be a despot, a President-For-Life now entering the sixteenth year of his four-year term; he may have his goons threaten and intimidate his critics, but at least he isn’t launching rockets into Israel.

Was the Targeted Assassination of Iran’s Top Nuclear Scientist Really ‘Reckless’ and a ‘Criminal Act’?

Was the targeted assassination of Iran’s top nuclear scientist any more “reckless” than the American killing of the head of Iran’s Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, at the beginning of 2020? Or was this killing any more “reckless” than the killing of Osama bin Laden by Seal Team Six, in 2011, when Brennan was high up in the CIA (he became the Director in 2013)?

Are Young Palestinians Really Suffering From Israeli Discrimination?

John Brennan mentions that these young Palestinians grow up suffering “discrimination.” What does he have in mind? There is not a single Israeli in Gaza, so Israeli “discrimination” against Palestinians in Gaza is not possible. In the West Bank, 90% of the Arabs live in Areas A and B. In Area A, the PA has complete control of daily life. In Area B, the PA has complete control of all aspects of the Arab inhabitants lives except for security. It is only in Area C, where Israelis retain control, that fewer than 10% of the West Bank Arabs live. What kind of “discrimination” does Brennan think they must endure in Area C? Are they denied schooling, medical care, the right to practice their (Muslim) religion, the right to employment? No. They can’t vote in Israeli elections, granted – but why should they? They are not Israeli citizens.

John Brennan, Defender of the Faith (Islam)

Unsurprisingly, as well as being a scold and scourge of those terrible Israelis, and a sympathizer with those inoffensive Palestinians, former CIA director John Brennan has also long been a defender of Islam. In 2010, Brennan said, taking up the theme of the false – because “extremist” – Muslims, and the true ones: “Nor do we describe our enemy as ‘Jihadists’ or ‘Islamists,’ because Jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one’s community, and there is nothing holy or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women, and children.”

Israel Must Let Hamas Know That Nothing On Earth Would Lead Them to Ban Jews From the Temple Mount

A commentary by Nadav Shragai on the Muslim demand that Jews be barred from the Temple Mount altogether is here. …We need to hope that no one in any of the Zionist political parties, defense establishment, or Israel Police is even remotely entertaining this impertinent demand. The ability to visit the Temple Mount is all…

Jewish Voice for Peace Joins Palestinians In Blaming Israel for Their Own Mishandling of Covid Crisis

Israel also transferred 5,000 vaccine doses meant to inoculate Palestinian health workers. Some of those vaccines were promptly claimed for themselves by PA leaders and their extended families, a scandalous misappropriation over which Israel had no control. Israel has always made clear that if the Palestinians requested help, Israel would respond favorably.

Shin Bet Chief Visits Abbas, Warns About A Hamas Win

Mahmoud Abbas is the PA’s President-for-Life, now entering the 16th year of his four-year term. He has decided to hold parliamentary and presidential elections this summer, in order to impress the Biden Administration with his suddenly-discovered democratic credentials. But there are problems, and Nadav Argaman, the Shin Bet head, went to visit the rais in Ramallah to discuss a worrisome possibility.
