  • FEAR THY NEIGHBOR

    By Simone Wilson

    November 25, 2014 | 1:09 pm

    Just after dawn on Nov. 18, a pair of Palestinian cousins from East Jerusalem went on a killing rampage in a West Jerusalem synagogue.

    Iron Dome – under the sea

    Israel’s high-tech defense system – Iron Dome, is about to make a splash. State-owned defense contractor Rafael wants to leverage the defense system’s much-vaunted success in protecting Israeli civilians in this summer’s Gaza war, hoping to draw navies...

  • Israel’s anti-rocket hit ‘Iron Dome’ a slow sell abroad

    October 6, 2014 | 1:23 pm

    Normally, an advanced new weapon system with a battle-proven success rate of 90 percent would have global defense procurement agencies on the phone in minutes. But Israel's Iron Dome rocket interceptor is yet to prove a hit with buyers abroad.

    In terms of operational achievement,...

  • Israel’s secret weapon: Patience Dome

    By Shmuel Rosner

    August 25, 2014 | 4:04 am

    As the latest cease-fire settles in at press time on Aug. 26, the question remains: What do we call a round of fighting that is 50 days long and counting?

    It is a serious question.

    One thing to consider is that the definition has legal implications. MK Nachman Shai of the Labor...

  • Who won and who lost in the Gaza war?

    August 5, 2014 | 10:28 am

    Now that the latest Gaza conflict appears to be over – or, nearly, so — it’s time to take stock of the winners and losers.

    Who won the war?

    Perhaps more than the other two Gaza conflicts in the last six years, Israel is the clear winner this time. The Israel Defense Forces...

  • Why Israel is so united

    By David Suissa

    August 4, 2014 | 2:02 pm

    You would think that the global outcry against Israel in the wake of the human devastation of Gaza would have had an effect on Israeli self-esteem. After all, Israelis love to be loved, especially in the cosmopolitan capitals of Europe.

    And yet after four days of hanging out in...

    July 31, 2014 | 10:34 am

  • Has Israel become a left-right issue?

    July 28, 2014 | 1:35 pm

    About a decade ago, my rabbi was promoting congregational AIPAC involvement.  His argument went that AIPAC was not necessary for our local liberal Jewish Congressman, who was a member of our synagogue.  If he ever did anything anti-Israel, the rabbi always had the option of...

  • Letters to the editor: Iron Dome, Tesla crash, PETA and more

    July 23, 2014 | 9:25 am

    Prayers Overseas

    David Suissa’s article was terrific, and I pray for his daughter’s safety (“Israel Needs an Irony Dome,” July 18). I also have a lot of family in Israel now. ... I have often thought lately that the Journal was too tough on Israel but seems better now. Keep up...

  • Tunnel vision: Why Hamas’ tunnels are the new front in the war with Israel

    July 22, 2014 | 10:04 am

    Until this latest war, if you asked most Israelis about the threat from Gaza, they would probably start talking about Hamas rockets.

    But that has changed over the last few days of fighting, for two reasons: One, the much-heralded success of the Iron Dome missile defense system,...

  • Life – if you can call it that – under Israel’s Iron Dome

    July 21, 2014 | 12:07 pm

    I’ve become pretty great at rocket dodging. As a New Yorker living in Tel Aviv while researching a book, I never thought I’d say that. And yet it’s true: since Hamas began firing rockets into Tel Aviv on July 8, I’ve learned to move quickly.

    Out jogging when a siren blares? I...

    By Simone Wilson

    July 16, 2014 | 2:01 pm

    When the first air-raid siren of summer 2014 screeched through Tel Aviv, my blood turned to ash. I was sitting in a coffee shop near my apartment, typing out a news piece on the disturbing increase in anti-Arab and anti-Jewish attacks throughout Israel, when the sound came —...

  • Israel needs an Irony Dome

    By David Suissa

    July 16, 2014 | 11:51 am

    It boggles the mind to think that a determined, Jew-hating terror army would fire more than 1,000 rockets at Israel over seven days and inflict so few casualties.

    I wonder what must be going through the minds of those Hamas terrorists right now: “We lost half of our arsenal and...

  • How is this Gaza conflict different from other Gaza conflicts?

    July 14, 2014 | 4:37 pm

    In the past week, Israel has endured a thousand rockets.

    July 11, 2014 | 9:58 am
