    What we are seeing in Jerusalem today is not simply Palestinian terrorism. It is Islamic jihad. No one likes to admit it. The television reporters insist that this is the worst possible scenario because there is no way to placate it. There is no way to reason with it. So what else is new? The horrible truth is that all of the anti-Jewish slaughters perpetrated by our Arab neighbors have been motivated to greater or lesser degrees by Islamic Jew-hatred. The only difference between the past hundred years and now is that today our appeasement-oriented elite is finding it harder...

    Jewish life in New York is dominated by ritual. Holidays. A pastrami reuben on a hero at Katz’s. The reading of holy books in cycles that take a year (the Torah) or seven and a half years (the Talmud). And just as reliably, there’s the ritual of presidential candidates sniffing around for dough right after the midterm elections. That last one got going in earnest yesterday and today, with Senator Ted Cruz of Texas making a whirlwind tour of power Jews in New York City. Last night, Mort Klein’s Zionist Organization of America dinner featured Mr. Cruz, known for his...

    The Facebook page of Mamoun Abunaser, an UNRWA school principal in Syria, carries an exhortation to support Palestinian "resistance." Image: Facebook Further examples of officials employed by UNRWA engaging in anti-Semitic activities online continue to surface, with no indication that the international organization’s management intends to clamp down on the incitement. As The Algemeiner reported last week, several UNRWA employees were among the many Palestinians who openly celebrated last Tuesday’s terrorist atrocity at a synagogue in Jerusalem, during which four worshippers and a police officer were brutally murdered. UNRWA is a body devoted solely to Palestinian Arab refugees from the...

    Sheikh Samir Aasi, Imam of the main mosque in the city of Akko (in above photo: front row, third from left), openly condemned the massacre that took place last week in a Har Nof synagogue. This terror attack was perpetuated by two Palestinian men, who entered during morning prayers and shot worshipers dead as well as stabbed them with meat cleavers. Aasi made the trip from Akko to Har Nof to participate in a pluralistic faith assembly attended by clergy from all of Israel's faiths. The assembly was held in the synagogue where the attack took place. Aasi spoke...

Two containers intercepted by authorities at the southern port were packed with 18,000 fireworks, 5,200 commando knives, 5,500 tasers, 4,300 tasers concealed in flashlights, 1,000 swords and several thousand other "cold" weapons.

Two Palestinians armed with a meat cleaver and a gun carried out the attack at the synagogue before being shot dead by police. Gazan revelers in Rafah handed out sweets and brandished axes and posters of the said perpetrators in praise of the deadly attack. Palestinian radio reports described the attackers as "martyrs" and Hamas praised the attack. Loudspeakers at mosques in Gaza called out congratulations.

"Israeli police shot dead to Palestinian civilians" - when in fact, the shooters were Palestinian terrorists who killed four Jews and wounded eight others and they prayed the morning service before being killed in a gun battle with police.

    CNN has always been widely hated in Israel, but its reporting on the latest Muslim terror attack with the murder of four Rabbis, three of them Americans, killed by two axe-wielding murderers, in a synagogue while at prayer, really hits a new low.First there’s a description of the Israeli police shooting and killing “2 Palestinians” when the police had fired in self-defense at the terrorists who had just perpetrated four brutal murders.As Honest Reporting shows, not only did CNN respond to a terrorist attack on Jews by interviewing a member of the racist PLO terrorist group, but its website and...

The attack, the deadliest in Jerusalem in years, is bound to ratchet up fears of sustained violence in the city, already on edge amid soaring tensions over a contested holy site.

    Speakers at a Hebrew University symposium on the separation barrier warned on Monday that the wall currently under construction in Jerusalem could undermine all hopes of peace and trigger a new war. The symposium was sponsored by the Middle East Unit of the Truman Institute. Rami Nassrallah, a member of the International Peace Cooperation Center, charged that the current route of the separation wall in Jerusalem is only the first stage in an alleged plan to split the Palestinian population in the area and create a "Jewish Jerusalem" rather than a "united Jerusalem." Nassrallah warned that in the future Israel...

The plan, which has already seen sections built in Jerusalem and the West Bank, has outraged Palestinians, and U.S....
