  • Israeli emigration to Berlin: It makes sense

    October 20, 2014 | 2:38 pm

    The uproar in Israel about the so-called “Milky” affair has two distinct aspects. First, it calls attention to Israel’s current economic situation which has caused both real and perceived problems, especially for young people. The other, and rather darker, issue is that it has...

    When the tzeva adom, red alert, screams its siren as Yasmine Parda eats out in Ashkelon at her favorite restaurant, she waits and hopes for the best—no rocket shelters are reachable by foot within the siren’s reported 15-second warning interval.

    August 15, 2014 | 7:24 am

    In a narrow alleyway just next to Begin Square in the center of this Israeli city, shops, cafes and bakeries are so tightly packed together that with every few steps brings a new business.

    While God Weeps,

    When the siren sounded, the Rolling Stones’ tortured 1969 track “Gimme Shelter” popped into my head, oddly enough.

  • When Jews murder

    By Dennis Prager

    July 9, 2014 | 9:45 am

    With the announcement that six Jews were arrested in the murder of Muhammad Hussein Abu Khdeir, a 16-year-old Palestinian, it is difficult to describe the sense of despondence that I (and I presume nearly all Jews) feel. Most Jews have a sense that certain things are truly foreign...
