  • Israel obligated to consider Diaspora views on Jerusalem

    January 24, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    Do Jews outside Israel have the right to criticize Israeli policies relating to defense and security matters or eternal issues, like concessions on Jerusalem?

  • Annapolis parlay repeating the mistakes of Oslo

    November 22, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    Before year's end, a U.S.-sponsored conference involving Israel and the Palestinian Authority will convene in Annapolis, Md., to frame yet another plan to end the Arab-Israeli war and create a Palestinian state.

  • Claim to Gaza

    October 7, 2004 | 8:00 pm

  • Gaza Withdrawal Rewards Terrorism

    February 26, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Should Israel withdraw from Gaza, as some are proposing?

    First, consider the impact of a Gaza withdrawal on the international war against terrorism. After three years of nonstop Palestinian Arab terrorism, in which nearly 1,000 Israelis -- and 41 Americans -- have been murdered, to...

  • Have the Lessons of Oslo Been Forgotten?

    August 21, 2003 | 8:00 pm

  • Creation of Mini-Iraq Seen in Peace Plan

    May 8, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    While the Bush administration has put an end to the Iraqi terrorist state, its "road map" will create a Palestinian Arab terrorist state -- a mini-Iraq. This will endanger Israel and undermine America's war against terrorism.

    Granting statehood does not guarantee peace. Syria, Iran...

    September 12, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Nine years have passed since the signing of the Oslo accords on the White House lawn. Is Israel better off or worse off as a result of Oslo?

    During the first seven years following the accords, more than 300 Israelis were murdered by Palestinian Arab terrorists -- far more than the...

  • There Is No ‘Occupation’

    May 16, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Arab spokesmen regularly complain about what they call "the Israeli occupation" of the Judea-Samaria-Gaza territories. But the truth is that there is no such "Israeli occupation."

    To begin with, nearly all Palestinian Arabs currently live under Yasser Arafat's rule, not Israel's....

  • Victory Should Be Israel’s Goal

    August 9, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Should Israel's goal be to defeat the Palestinian Arab terrorists who are waging war against it? Or should Israelis be striving merely for a few days or weeks of quiet?

    The answer would seem obvious, but at a recent meeting with a senior State Department official, I and other Jewish...

  • Arafat’s Culture of Hatred

    November 30, 2000 | 7:00 pm

  • The Truth About the ZOA

    July 15, 1999 | 8:00 pm
