    Truisms are born to be disproven. The assertion that the era of the two-state solution is over has been frequently propounded of late by Israelis from left to right. To make their case, they point to the irreversibility of Israel’s presence in the West Bank.

    It’s been just two days since President Barack Obama touched down in Israel, and no doubt you’ve probably read and heard it all by now. The ribbing banter with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, his Best Frenemy Forever. The constant ovations during his speeches. The Presidential...

  • Some reasons for Israel’s skepticism towards the Palestinian Authority

    By Arthur Cohn

    January 28, 2013 | 10:27 am

    The biased news coverage on Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, is frightening. It is therefore of vital importance to mention in discussions about the Middle East all relevant facts, in order to give the audience a full and balanced picture. I would like to illustrate...

  • Obama’s likely takeaway from Israeli election: More two-state advocates

    January 23, 2013 | 10:33 am

    With the Israeli election results split evenly between the right-wing bloc and everyone else, no one in Washington is ready to stake their reputation on what the outcome means for the U.S.-Israel relationship and the Middle East.

    Except for this: The next Israeli government...

  • Opinion: Two-state solution

    August 10, 2011 | 10:40 am

    With all the wrangling over solutions to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, no one has dared to suggest the most obvious one of all: science.  Until now. The following vision of a future Mideast at peace is an excerpt from leading Futurosopher/comedy writer Rob Kutner’s new e-book,...

  • Despite Obama's speech, Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria will outlive us all

    May 20, 2011 | 10:50 am

    In approximately 18 months Barack Obama may no longer be President, or just a lame duck limping to January 2013.  At most, he would be President for another 5 and half years.

    During the same period, more thousands of Jews will continue being added to the population of Judea and...

    I’m not sure, but I think I have a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, or at least another way of looking at it. It hit me the other day after I broke bread at Pat’s Restaurant with some people connected to Americans for Peace Now, a leftist Jewish organization that...

    Same-Sex Marriages

    In the cover story ("Same Sex Marriage and the Fabric of Society: What Does it All Mean?" June 20), the section, "The End of Morality," is devoted to anti-gay viewpoints (including Dennis Prager, perhaps inserted as deference to some aberrant sense of balance).

    For many observers the "road map," which envisions creating a Palestinian state adjacent to Israel, looks increasingly like a dead end. As does the Geneva accord. With Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists blowing up innocent Israelis in bloody attacks and Israel building a security...
