    Your "facts" are not supportable. You refer to "mandated Palestine" and claim Israel has 78% of that territory. You very conveniently exclude the state of Jordan which was directly created from mandated Palestine by the U.K. and consists of primarily "Palestinian" Arabs and an artificial Hashemite ruler. It was created arbitrarily to set new realities on the ground and in contravention of all British promises, and gave the Arabs 70% of mandated Palestine AND ensured that the remainder still be divided between Arabs and Jews. Revealingly, Jordan, which captured the West bank during their aggresive war on Israel considered the West Bank part of its territory and never granted the local "Palestinian" Arabs independence (frankly, that "movement" was not artificially created by Arafat and the KGB until after 1967). Effectively, therefore, Israel consists of less than 20% of the original mandated Palestine.

What division? Jews united over Iran deal

Not only are left and right in Israel united in opposition to Obama's compact of appeasement; the deal has made bedfellows of an astonishing array of Jewish organizations in America.

Palestinian workers stand under a shelter

You love Israel and hate occupation. What do you do?

There's a certain freedom in a time of extremism and obsession and chaos. Freedom to chart a new course. Freedom to love Israel. Freedom to help undo what it's done in your name.

How Isaiah gave Hebrew its word for vagina

If St Jerome and other experts are right, Israelis may have thought that 'pot' meant vulva, but actually they were saying cup. Or forehead. Or maybe something else.
