A few months ago, there was a slew of hopeful chatter in Israel that Eli Cohen would finally be coming home. This followed the return of remains of an Israeli soldier killed in battle in Lebanon in 1982 with help from Russia. The country couldn’t restrain its excitement at the repatriation of Zachary Baumol’s remains. Prayers were that Eli Cohen …

JERUSALEM, ISRAEL — August 28, 2019 — A miracle took place in Jerusalem this month.  On the surface, that’s not so extraordinary. Perhaps more than anyplace else, Jerusalem is the capital of miracles, in both biblical and modern times. This month, Jews worldwide observed what’s known the saddest day on the calendar, Tisha B’Av, the ninth of the Hebrew month …

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 …
