    The Arabs speak in one voice. This debate feeds into the Arab narrative, that Jews are a foreign and illegal element and must be removed. May I remind the distinguished intellectuals that Jews have had a continuous presence in Palestine for 3000 years, that 2 million Arabs live in Israel, that 83% of historic Palestine was deed to Jordan and excluded Jews, but somehow you find it offensive that Jews may want to live in the 17% not given to Jordan. May I remind you that Jews were expelled from East Jerusalem, Hebron and the entire West Bank in 1948. But most importantly, may I remind you that most Israeli's accept a 2 state solution but most Palestinians do not--including the so-called moderate Abbas and that is the real problem. You should focus your energy on getting the Arabs to accept Israel as a state of the Jews and then, and only then, do the actual borders matter. Until then, each side is free to strengthen their position.

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
