- Taking Sides In Mideast Conflict
Even as mainline Christian churches pin the blame on the Middle East conflict squarely on Israel, potentially setting back years of domestic interfaith work with the Jewish community, others – for the most part evangelicals spurred by biblical conviction – are lining up to support the Jewish state.
- A Palestinian Coronation
When it comes to safeguarding his power, Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat certainly does not waste time. Less than 48 hours after US President George W. Bush's speech on Monday calling for a change in the Palestinian leadership, senior PA officials announced yesterday that Arafat would run for reelection in January.
- Arafat Has to Go
Of course Arafat has to go. He has spent his eight years in control of Palestinian society encouraging and glorifying violence. ``Asking Arafat to give up terrorism,'' explains Bernard Lewis, the dean of Middle East scholars, ``would be like asking Tiger Woods to give up golf.''
- Ambushing Arafat
President Bush set an ambush of his own for the terrorists in the Middle East. The administration noticed a connection between Bush's pre-announced speech schedule and fresh attacks against Israel.
- Mechanics of Failure
The slaughter of innocents inflicted on Israel this week by Palestinian murderers is unparalleled since the days of Nazi Germany. No longer are Israelis murdered singly; whole families are being wiped out while asleep, riding buses, celebrating.
- Bush is Rewarding Terrorism
This not only does grave damage to the President's proclaimed war on terrorism but it sends a signal to the Palestinians to expect further rewards for yet more violence. True, there was much in his presentation about the virtues of local elections, independent auditing and market economics, but the only message that will stick is a cruder one: Terrorism pays.
- Palestinian Statehood Would Undo Jewish State
Israel and Palestine living peacefully, side by side (and the suicide bombers shall lie down with the victims), is a dream of diplomats disconnected from reality. A provisional Palestinian state would be an interim, but irreversible, step toward the abolition of the Jewish state.
- CNN's Chain of Bias
CNN's anti-Israel bias in its approach to reporting on the Middle East is deeply ideological at all levels. Here is the proof:
- A Guarantee of More Violence
This rewarding of terrorism is not just a moral scandal. It is disastrous diplomacy. What does this provisional state say to the Palestinians? You can reject the state you were offered two years ago, start a war, murder daily, and then be re-offered a state--this time without even having to be asked to make peace.
- Suicide Bombing
For no sooner had Hamas exploded the bus in Jerusalem than the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade exploded the street corner in Jerusalem: The secularists did not want to suffer in popularity for their failure to murder. In contemporary Palestine, suicide bombing is politically savvy.
- Enough is Enough
As expected, another massacre. One moment, 19 people, some of them children on the way to school, are sitting on a bus. In the next, their bodies lie in black plastic bags on the sidewalk, in front of the prime minister of Israel and a crowd from the international media.
- Smoke and Mirrors: The 'Interim' State
The Bush administration is considering rewarding 21 months of terror against Israeli women and children with the gift of Palestinian statehood. The administration invented a new term for it, calling it an "interim" – or a temporary – Palestinian state. What in the world is a "temporary" state? If we don't like it, can we take it back? What would be temporary about it, and what is the appeal of such an absurd plan?

The personal reactions of two Israelis to today's suicide bombing in Jerusalem.
- None of Israel's Good Deeds Will Go Unpunished
"Trust me," my father replied, "the Arabs will hate you. They may desire prosperity and health, but only from their own hands, not from yours. They want self-government, not good government. The more you give them the more they'll resent you. You'll be forced to dispense your gifts with one hand and fire at them with the other."
- Charles Krauthammer: A Pen in Defense of Zion
Columnist Charles Krauthammer, winner of this year's Guardian of Zion award, talks with Bret Stephens about the media coverage of Israel, the war on terror and America's role in the Middle East
- No Terms of Negotiation
By his proponents' own words, at best he intends well but cannot deliver peace. If Arafat cannot deliver the goods, then Israel cannot reasonably be expected to offer him concessions and abandon preciously guarded rights in return for peace promises and treaties that are destined to fail ab initio because he lacks enforcement authority.
- Whitewashing the Palestinians
Last time I checked, neo-Nazis weren't blowing up towers, killing American journalists or killing Israeli civilians. The real threat today is Islamic murderers and terrorists. And tomorrow's threat is Palestinian terrorists, who will soon reach America's shores.
- Palestinians are Not Ready for Statehood
Ever since Yasser Arafat appeared to embrace the idea of the State of Israel alongside a Palestinian state in 1988, and the Israeli government accepted the notion of a Palestinian state by signing the Oslo Accords in 1993, it was presumed that the peace process was moving toward a two-state solution. Commentators such as myself have embraced this concept for years. Sadly, however, I now sense we were wrong. Put simply, the Palestinians are not ready for statehood.
- Yasser: How Long Will this Farce Continue?
Here's Yasser Arafat's idea of making peace in the Mideast: He's offered Hamas and three other terrorist groups a place in his new, "reformed" cabinet. And this is the leader the whole of the American foreign policy and intelligence establishment is courting, even while the Israelis clean the latest gore off their highways.
- "With Malice Toward None..."
The Palestinian State to be created will be the creation of the United States and her allies in much the same way present-day Japan was our recreation after WW II. If it is done right, which means listen to all, weigh conflicting claims impartially and decide emphatically; we will have left a legacy in the region that will begin to reverse the policy mistakes of centuries.
- Jews Expelled from Arab Lands Forgotten
The Forgotten Exodus: The expulsion of the Jews from Arab lands and the Israeli-Arab dispute. That was the theme of a conference held recently in Paris, under the aegis of the Jewish European Congress. At a time when the Palestinians are demanding the “right of return” to present-day Israel, the conference aimed to bring to light a tragic and little-known episode in Sephardi Jewish history that had been repressed for ideological reasons by everyone involved.
- The Particularity of Palestinian Terrorism
All terrorist groups, of course, emphasize violence and the use of force, but the Palestinian groups are altogether unique in several important ways. Most significant of all is that, for the Palestinians, violence is generally its own reward. Rejecting more instrumental views of force, Hamas, the PLO, and all other movement organizations have now come to regard terror violence as an end in itself. The root of this dark sentiment lies in their common and all-consuming hatred of "the Jews." When Haj Amin al Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, spoke together with Hitler on Berlin Radio in 1942, he cried out: "Kill the Jews - kill them with your hands, kill them with your teeth - this is well pleasing to Allah."
- The Peace that Loses Wars
The peace process is indeed a powerful potion. So powerful that it has become the principal weapon of the enemies of the US and Israel in preventing the two democracies from taking the military measures necessary to enable true peace to be achieved.

- The Abuse of History: Where ideology meets distortion in the Middle East.
We hear frequently of the "Holocaust" and "genocide" in association with the Israeli incursion into Jenin — especially in the European presses. The very mention of those charged words in reference to fewer than 70 dead in a war zone is blasphemous to the memory of 6 million butchered in a methodical state program of death. Auschwitz alone saw 10,000 gassed on some days.
- Speaking Truth to the Powerless: An Open Letter To The People Commonly Called "Palestinians"
Invest in banks, not bombs. Build computer chips, not Kalashnikovs. Teach science and mathematics, not hate. Look to the future, not the past. Stop blaming Americans and Jews for all your problems, and take responsibility for your own actions. Read those parts in the Quran about living with the "peoples of the Book".
- We Have All Been Had
The belief that giving the Palestinians a state will bring peace is a delusion. The truth is that they want it all. The short-term goal is a state consisting of the West Bank and Gaza. The long-term goal is a state that includes all of "historical Palestine," including Jordan.
- Twenty Facts about Israel and the Middle East The world's attention has been focused on the Middle East. We are confronted daily with scenes of carnage and destruction. Can we understand such violence? Yes, but only if we come to the situation with a solid grounding in the facts of the matter -- facts that too often are forgotten, if ever they were learned. Below are twenty facts that we think are useful in understanding the current situation, how we arrived here, and how we might eventually arrive at a solution.
- The Stillborn Palestinian State
Or why a Palestinian state in Judea, Samaria and Gaza is nonviable.
All those who so stubbornly demand the creation of this corpse-state never stop to ask themselves what will happen after it is proclaimed. However, it is precisely the answer to this question that unequivocally demonstrates not only the hopelessly utopian nature of the idea, but more importantly the almost criminally ill-advised nature of any attempts to establish this state.
- Why We'll Win
Believe me, if you dare, when I tell you that these Christian Zionists are the most sincere supporters of Israel I've ever met. Bar none. ... we will win, with His help, and the aid of our humble, thoroughly sincere gentile allies. They're out there, millions and millions of them, and they can be trusted. Let's join together in His name.
- Stop Your Foolish Imaginings
The politician will welcome the new Arab state with warm words and praise the two sides for their fortitude. He will stir his audience to tears, mentioning the names of Arab and Jewish victims of what he will call "the cycle of violence." He will invoke Biblical images of the end of days. He will quote, of course, from the Bible and from the Quran.
- The PA's Rotten Core
It is ridiculous to speak of creating a Palestinian nation at present. A would-be nation should contain, at the very least, politically independent civic institutions, leaders committed to the rule of law, and a unified police command. But even before the Israeli invasion, the Palestinian Authority had degenerated into a loose confederacy of terrorist and quasi-terrorist organizations -- Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah -- competing to shake cash out of Mr. Arafat.
- The PA's Intentional Suicide Attempts
The right to victimhood strategy is underscored by the reports from Jenin and elsewhere in the West Bank that Palestinians refused to bury war casualties in order to present evidence of a "massacre," (presumably without pictures of the guns that many were holding) at the risk that the outbreak of diseases would create an epidemic among Palestinian civilians. And in what represents perhaps the most cynical example of adding insult to injury come reports from the IDF that initial efforts to provide blood units to the Palestinians as part of a humanitarian aid gesture were met with the response that they "did not want Jewish blood."
- On Hating Israel
What we know but can't say out loud.
- The Case Against Yasser Arafat
The evidence that Arafat is a mass murderer is overwhelming and is beyond reasonable dispute. As a criminal law professor and a practicing criminal defence lawyer for nearly 40 years, I can attest, with absolute certainty, that there is enough evidence against Arafat to assure his conviction of first degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in any fair legal system anywhere in the world.
