    Ravi: The West Bank and Gaza were invaded as a result of the unanimous decision of many Arab states to destroy Israel 100 %. Later, Israel offered the creation of a Palestinian state in West Bank and Gaza in exchange for peace (i.e. in exchange for the promise that the Palestinian constitution would remove the statement "that Israel has no right to exist and that the 1967 or even the 1949 borders are illegal.") Apparently the Palestinian groups refused to remove that sentence from their constitution, even after Israel made a good will gesture by totally withdrawing from Gaza and even after Israel promised to do the same in the West Bank if only the Palestinians agreed to recognize Israel. I am very much in favor of long term peace and tolerance, as well as coexistence. But if the extremist governments of the Palestinians say that they will use the Israeli withdrawal to bring in missiles to later bombard all of Israel then this would make it difficult for Israel to withdraw.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas

PLO officials: Reports Abbas is retiring are premature

Despite the Palestinian president's sense 'that everyone abandoned him, particularly the U.S.,' observers see no imminent move on his part.

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.
