Jews Take Up Too Much Space

We Are the World

A different meaning to the People of Israel, the Land of Israel and theTorah of Israel., 9/16/2014, 7:33 AM

Needed: A Jewish Peace Plan

Is there a connection between the growing Islamic wave in the Middle East and Western secularization? If so, what is Israel's role in this culture clash? An examination of the religious aspect of the Arab-Israeli conflict. , 6/10/2014, 4:49 AM

The Many Causes of Menny Mazuz

The best politician in Israel is not a politician., 6/29/2007, 11:12 AM

Tired of Paying for the Left's Arrogance

Hundreds of religious soldiers from Judea, Samaria and Gaza will risk their lives to save those who voted to destroy theirs. And then when the bulldozers come to destroy the towns of Judea and Samaria, and the terrorists begin shooting rockets at Gush Dan from the rubble, we will once again ask ourselves how it could all happen., 7/28/2006, 12:02 PM

Going Against "the Majority"

In the past few weeks, a number of pamphlets written by rabbis from the left-wing of the national-religious camp have been distributed to the public. The central claim of these pamphlets is that the majority of Israelis are left-wing and support surrendering part the Land of Israel to the Arabs., 6/30/2006, 12:40 AM

My "Reward" for Serving My Country

I volunteered to serve in the Israel <I>Defense</I> Forces. I refuse to serve in the Israel <I>Destruction</I> Forces., 6/15/2006, 10:58 PM

How to Win the Battle for the Land of Israel

Its time the national-religious camp stopped mumbling and started demanding. We can start by appropriating the language of our enemies and put them on the defense for once, instead of always apologizing or defending ourselves., 5/30/2006, 11:36 PM

Can the Center Hold?

The next Israeli government is likely to look a lot like the Oslo Accords government of a decade ago. Then, too, extremist parties from both ends of the political spectrum bypassed their more moderate brethren and joined forces to surrender parts of the land of Israel., 4/7/2006, 10:06 AM

Why Do Moderates Call Themselves Extremists?

With the world on the verge of a cataclysmic confrontation between the hedonistic West and the fundamentalist East, the need for promoting the Jewish center is more critical now than ever., 2/15/2006, 4:21 PM

On the Obligation to Refuse Illegal Orders

Soldier, don't be a partner to the crime. The obligation to refuse illegal orders is fivefold. , 8/9/2005, 10:13 PM

Reject Extremism; Embrace Moderation - Part II

Nobody wants to sit in jail. But sometimes, in order to do what is right, you need to pay a price. , 7/4/2005, 4:06 PM

Reject Extremism; Embrace Moderation - Part I

I received fantastic support from many people while I was in jail, but the amazing success of the road-blockings has also caused some disgruntled people to complain., 7/3/2005, 2:25 PM

Stop Discrimination Against Anti-Expulsion Activists

The brutal and sadistic punishments handed out by the police and courts to the Gush Katif demonstrators are unprecedented. In the recent road blocking the police have put children as young as 12 years old and women the age of grandmothers in jail for weeks for daring to demand democracy and human rights. What kind of government jails children!?!, 6/6/2005, 11:27 PM

Free All Israeli Political Prisoners Now ? A Letter from Jail

My name is Yehezkel Laing. I am 34 years old and work in marketing for a hi-tech company in Jerusalem. I never thought I would be writing a letter like this, a letter from jail...I never dreamed that the government of Israel would take away my basic rights and label me a danger to society, especially for causing a traffic jam. , 5/25/2005, 10:56 AM

"No Jews Allowed"

Times have certainly changed. Jews today can live in London, Paris and New York. They can even live in Zimbabwe, Greenland and Peru. They can live anywhere in any gentile nation on earth. How, then, can they be denied the right to live in their own land?, 4/26/2005, 11:35 PM

The Other Illegal Construction - Pt. II

One of the main claims of Arab and left-wing human rights groups is that eastern Jerusalem residents are forced to build illegally because the city is unwilling to grant building permits to Arab residents., 4/10/2005, 4:25 PM

The Other Illegal Construction - Pt. I

Drive along the Maaleh Adumim-Jerusalem road towards French Hill and you'll pass the Arab neighborhood of Isawiyah, within the municipal boundaries of the city. There, you will find hundreds of buildings scattered haphazardly all over the place, with no apparent logic., 4/7/2005, 10:31 PM

Let's Try Democracy, Arik

If the people want a referendum against Sharon's wishes, he really has only himself to blame. Running on a platform opposed to the expulsion plan and then, after winning office, favoring it, doesn't do much to promote rule "of the people, by the people and for the people.", 2/22/2005, 11:14 PM

Guess Who Opposes the Expulsion Plan

"Those who espouse unilateral disengagement under fire - to this line or that - only invite more terror." (<I>Jerusalem Post</I>, January 9, 2003) , 10/28/2004, 11:18 PM

Consequences of the Masculine Movement

The feminists? rapid infiltration into the national-religious community continues to astound me. In the past couple of years the <i>Hatzofe</i>, <i>Nekuda</i> and <i>Makor Rishon</i> religious publications have published literally dozens of pro-feminist articles. Even the Arutz-7 radio station now broadcasts ads for the radical Kolech organization. If that weren't enough, the head of the Emuna wom, 9/4/2003, 9:55 PM
