  1. Reply to M.P. David Ward the anti-Semite

    Saturday, February 9th, 2013

    “Having visited Auschwitz twice – once with my family and once with local schools – I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the Holocaust, could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians in the new State of Israel and continue to do so on a daily basis in the West Bank and Gaza.”

  2. “Proportionality in war
    is not a Jewish notion”

    Sunday, December 23rd, 2012

    “He claims that “Israelis don’t practice an eye for an eye … they practice 10 eyes for an eye …” Moreover he avows “that a just war requires the use of force to be proportionate seems to be a Christian notion, not a Jewish notion”.

  3. Treading through the baloney

    Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

    Why should Israel give up territory and security to the PA merely because it prosecutes corrupt leaders (don’t hold your breath) and is more prosperous? What it needs to know is that the conflict won’t continue, that there won’t be cross-border raids, that Hamas won’t take over and that Palestine won’t invite in Syrian or Iranian military forces, to cite some examples.

  4. Misinformation about Gaza and the flotilla debacle

    Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

    By Maurice Ostroff Copyright by the author. June 7, 2010 Whether or not one considers the Gaza blockade justified, moral or wise, intellectual honesty demands that we base our conclusions on credible information. Unfortunately the majority of reports about the Gaza blockade are glaringly misleading. Politicians, journalists and other pundits cannot reach rational conclusions, about […]

  5. Nakba Day Commemorates the Day the Arabs Failed to Vanquish and Exterminate the Jews of Palestine

    Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

    “Nakba Day commemorates the catastrophe (as the Palestinians have chosen to call it) when five Arab nations (Egypt, Trans Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Yemen) attacked outnumbered and outweaponed Israel on its first day of independence. Yet amazingly, and against all odds, the poorly armed Jewish Haganah emerged victorious.”

  6. Most Palestinians Penetrated into the Land of Israel Between 1870s’-1948

    Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

    “The Palestinian claim that they are the indigenous people of the Land of Israel has no ground”” says this renowned historian.

  7. Pollard. Contrasts in punishment to Israeli, American and Russian spies

    Thursday, March 8th, 2012

    “This is about Jonathan Pollard . . . Gary Powers, an American pilot who was tasked to spy on the Soviet Union . . . and Yosef Amit, an Israeli who spied for the U.S on Israel. What they did and how they were judged are compared.”

  8. Israel: A true ally in the Middle East

  9. Finnish delusions

    Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

    In short, since the beginning of 1996, and certainly following the completion of the Hebron redeployment in January 1997, 99% of the Palestinian residents of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip have not lived under Israeli occupation; rather, they have been under the jurisdiction of the Arafat-led PA.

  10. Israel needs a Salvation Day
    to oppose Nakba Day

    Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

    “Unfortunately Nakba Day spurs the always present anti-Semitism in much of the non-Jewish world. It generates ardent sympathy for the Palestinian cause. For days before and for days after, the world media is immersed in the Palestinian narrative. From a PR point of view Nakba Day gives Israel a bloody running nose and two black eyes – year after year.”

  11. For anti-Semites who consider
    themselves decent people

    Friday, July 1st, 2011

    “The full list of Israeli achievements over the last 25 years is breathtaking. Regrettably these are not listed anywhere as far as I know. However, the 244 which are published in 21c’s blog since July 2005 –though clearly incomplete – is concrete evidence of a small nation beavering away at projects for their own good and the benefit of mankind. Certainly worthy of admiration and approbation in the councils and universities of the world. Instead of which Israel is mostly lashed by the cruel whips of mindless anti-Semitism.”

  12. Israel’s Conflict as Game Theory

    Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

    “As in all of science, game theory does not take sides in moral and value judgments. It analyzes strategically the behavior of opposing sides in a game they play against one another. Sadly, Israel ignores the basic principles of game theory. If Israel would be wise enough to behave according to those principles, her political status and de facto, her security status, would improve substantially.”
