Israel's Right to the Land

The view that the Middle East peace process, the latest phase of which kicks off in Annapolis this week, is essentially a mechanism for the vindication of Palestinian rights over the West Bank and Gaza is widely held here in Western Europe, where an awareness of Israel's legitimate claims and entitlements has been a casualty of the predominantly left-wing media's embrace of the Palestinian cause. Whereas Arab prerogatives are exhaustively documented, the Jewish right to this land is almost entirely ignored. The anniversaries this month of three of the founding documents of the modern Middle East present an opportunity to redress the balance and reassert the Israeli case.

I Will Remember the Land

All mankind is out to rob the Jewish people of half of what they have of their ancestral homeland, and give it to the Arabs who already have 22 states of their own.


As 2008 began, George W. Bush came to Jerusalem to add his personal weight to the momentum he generated just over a month earlier at the "International Conference for the Creation of Palestine" in Annapolis.
Speaking in Jerusalem, he repeated his full, personal commitment to helping bring this Arab state into being before another 12 months have passed.


The entire international community supports this land theft and is willing to gamble with Israel's existence by exacting this price from the universally-despised, yet peace seeking, Jewish leadership, instead of demanding payment for peace from the aggressive and antisemitic Arab regimes.

Israel's Gift to the World

As Israel celebrates its 60th birthday, the world should recognize the enormous gifts the Jewish state has given the world. Israel has exported more lifesaving medical technology to the far-flung corners of the earth than any nation of comparable size. It has done more to protect the environment, to promote literature, music, the arts and sciences, to spread agricultural advances and to fight terrorism within the rule of law.


Israel has created a legal system that is the envy of the world, with a Supreme Court that is open to all with few, if any, restrictions on its jurisdiction. As America's most liberal Supreme Court Justice William Brennan observed when he visited Israel in 1988:


"It may well be Israel, not the United States, that provides the best hope for building a jurisprudence that can protect civil liberties against the demands of national security.

Israel's Success Story

Just 60 years ago, David Ben-Gurion declared that, after a lapse of two millennia, the state of Israel had resumed its existence. There was dancing in the streets of this revived state. At the time, the Nazi Holocaust had just dealt Jews what was virtually a death-blow, and survivors might have been expected never to recover. In a magnificent, perhaps desperate, assertion of human vitality, they instead came together to create their own state of Israel. Jews were at last in a position to take their future into their own hands. An ancient identity, complete with its long since unspoken language of Hebrew, acquired a modern expression. There is no other example in history of a national comeback like this.

Israel: Role Model for America

The plucky Jewish state can teach the U.S. a thing or two about cultural and creedal survival. Israel has endured to celebrate its 60th birthday in so small part because it has rejected American-style immolation by immigration.
Despite Israel's protestations to the contrary, it is neither a multicultural state, nor a free-for-all pluralist pottage with open borders a' la post-1965, Immigration Act America. Rather, Israel upholds the right to retain its religious and cultural distinctiveness and its Jewish majority. It therefore controls immigration and guards its borders

Why God Won't Allow Israel to Perish

Israelis are feeling uneasy these days as their leaders continue to negotiate away the land their sons and fathers and brothers fought so courageously to defend from enemies in four major wars and several minor ones.


Jews around the world are wondering if their tiny state can possibly survive the onslaught of endless terrorism and continuing threats from neighboring states arming themselves with weapons of mass destruction.


Friends of Israel, especially evangelical Christians in the U.S., are perplexed by the insistence of their leaders that Israel should accommodate its sworn enemies  states and terrorist organizations determined to finish the job Adolf Hitler started.

Sixty-one years after the birth of the State of Israel, the Jewish state continues to be assailed by its enemies. From the halls of the United Nations to the classrooms of major universities and in the pressrooms of major newspapers and magazines, attacks on the legitimacy of every move by Israel -- and even of the state's existence itself -- continue to be made.

How Long Can Israel Resist US Pressure?

As US President Barack Obama presses ahead with his Middle East peace intiatives, America's new tone and new modesty are going down well in the region. Even Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is finding it hard to resist the pressure to compromise on the Palestinian question.

Obama and Israel, Into the Abyss

What I dubbed the Obama administration's "<a href="http://www.danielpipes.org/6389/rapid-and-harsh-turn-against-israel">rapid and harsh turn against Israel</a>" has had three quick, predictable, and counter-productive results. These point to further difficulties ahead.

First result: Barack Obama's decision to get tough with Israel translates into escalating Palestinian demands on Israel. In early July, Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas and Saeb Erekat, his top negotiator, insisted on five unilateral concessions by Israel:

Leave Jerusalem Alone

In a reference to the upcoming nine days which culminate in Tisha B'Av, the rabbis tell US Pres. Obama that during these days, in which the Jewish people mourn the destruction of Jerusalem and mark the disgraceful memory of its destroyers, we are certain that you, Mr. Barack Obama, do not want to enter that disreputable list of those who raise their hand to strike Jerusalem and those who live in it.

The rabbinical letter ends with a clear request:  If you, Mr. Obama, wish to leave any chance at all for peace and quiet in the Middle East, take your hands off the Holy City of Jerusalem right now!

Two hundred and fifty rabbis have signed the appeal, and efforts are being made to collect the signatures of every rabbi in Israel before the letter is sent to Washington. (Source: A7News)
