    The State Department on Tuesday accused Israel of systematically seizing Palestinian land after the Jewish state okayed the cons In the unusually strongly worded statement, spokesman John Kirby said the reports of new construction permits, which came Sunday as a response to two deadly terror attacks, called into question Israel’s commitment to the two-state solution. “If its true, this report would be the latest step in what seems to be the systematic process of land seizures settlement expansions and legalization of outposts that is fundamentally undermining the prospects for a two-state solution. We oppose steps like these which we believe...

    The Israeli newspaper, The Jerusalem Post, has fired senior reporter, Larry Derfner for penning a blog post, justifying terrorist attacks against Israelis. He wrote a post titled “The awful, necessary truth about Palestinian terror,” in which he justified a recent terrorist attack against Israel. Good riddance to him. Palestinian terrorist attacks are not justifiable.

    In what other country can a movement like the Tea Party , radicalize a major party and steer it to the brink of an historic electoral upheaval? Next Tuesday, a uniquely deranged political party is going to take over the most powerful country on earth. The key word here is “unique.” The Republican Party in 2010 is the only major political party in the Western world, the only one shooting for national leadership, that has been supercharged by crackpots with crackpot ideas – i.e. Tea Partiers, the generic name for America’s xenophobic, libertarian, right-wing Christian conspiracy freaks. There are lunatic...

    Ordinarily, we Israelis tell ourselves that we are morally superior to the Palestinians because they're terrorists and we're not, they deliberately target civilians and we don't. After this last war in Gaza, though, we can't really tell that to ourselves because it's not very convincing. After all, Hamas only killed three civilians with rockets during the war, while we killed several hundred Gazan civilians with all sorts of hi-tech weapons. Hamas did very little property damage here, while we destroyed thousands upon thousands of Gazan homes and civic buildings. So the argument that the Palestinians fight civilians and we don't...

    'There was a story in The Jerusalem Post recently about how Sarah Palin was driving a lot of the old Jews in Florida back into the hands of the Democrats. They still didn't particularly like Barack Obama, but they disliked Palin more, explained Steve Geller, a Jewish Democratic politician down there. It wasn't just the evangelical thing, he said. "Most of our South Florida condo people are appalled at seeing her standing over a moose." Finally. Thank God. I'd like to shake the hands of those South Florida condo people for saying what American Jews have been afraid to say...
