    The reason there is no unilateral Palestinian state (and never will be) is because there is no such thing as a 'Palestinian'. Palestine was the name the Romans gave to the region. The correct name is Phillistine--the current occupyers of the ancient Phillistine territories are nothing but Arab trespassers. Why don't the other Arab nations take care of their own? Because almost all the Arab states are muslims and muslims HATE Jews--its in their religion (kill all the Jews). Why should the muslims settle for anything less than the extermination of Israel? If they can wait it out, there will be no need for a 'unilateral' state--gaza and the west bank will be the 'unilateral' state. Now do you understand?

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.
