If I were Israel’s Prime Minister, I’d have let repugnant US Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib come to Israel, despite their hateful agenda and itinerary that would have been an unabashed Anti-Israel Propaganda Tour.  Israel is a strong country, vibrant democracy, and can stand up to the debate.  There would have been no problem calling them out and challenging …

This week my family and I have the privilege of celebrating two significant and interrelated milestones. We celebrate the 15th anniversary of our arrival in Israel, taking on citizenship and planting our roots firmly in our historic homeland. And we celebrate (yes, celebrate) the induction into the IDF of our oldest son. When our youngest son was born in Jerusalem, …

  At the beginning of a recent trip to the US I was privileged to find myself in the office of my Congressional Representative, Bonnie Watson Coleman, (NJ-12th District) discussing legislation related to providing security in the Middle East against the rising tide of Islamic extremism, and combatting anti-Semitism. I left the meeting hopeful, and grateful as an American to …

A confluence of current Middle Eastern events, and a 38th anniversary observed this month, may foreshadow a similar outcome from then, in the future. The Middle East events unfolding are unique and parallel on two fronts: Iran and Turkey. But there is a connection. With Iran increasing its hostility to the US, Israel and world in general, the most recent …

Most people at least recognize the name of Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. But few outside Israel know the name of Israel’s President, or that Israel even has one. In Israel, the Prime Minister is the head of the government and the president is the head of State. Israel’s current, and tenth, President is Reuven (Ruby) Rivlin. He was elected …

JERUSALEM, ISRAEL — May 19, 2019 — Rep. Rashida Tlaib suggesting that her people made way for Jews in “Palestine” is dishonest and whitewashes the historical reality that the leaders of the indigenous Arab population of Ottoman and British controlled Palestine colluded with the Nazis to exterminate the Jews of Europe and Palestine. Her recent remarks beg anyone of decency …
