What we already knew, but some UNRWA officials have pretended doesn’t happen.

Puts in context how some UN facilities and civilians are hit either by misfired Hamas or Islamic Jihad rockets or Israeli return fire.

Yesterday one of the stories thrust into the mainstream media was nearly simultaneous explosions in a Palestinian neighborhood and at al-Shifa hospital.

The media immediately took the Hamas line that it was Israeli missiles. Later, the IDF stated that it had not fired on those locations, and that the explosions were...

Just think what could have been.

Israel left Gaza in 2005. The vast international aid that flowed to Gaza could have been used to build the foundation of a nation.

My father just told me about this song by Peter Himmelman, “Maximum Restraint.” Himmelman, in addition to being a singer-songwriter in his own right is also Bob Dylan’s son-in-law.

In the song, Himmelman mocks calls for Israel to exercise “maximum restraint” in response to rocket attacks.

Here’s a taste of the lyrics:

How do you fight an enemy that is willing—nay, eager—to force you to kill its children even if you don’t want to?

That’s the situation Israel faces against Hamas. It’s the situation we face against Islamist terrorists, too, because they use such techniques as one of their primary tools, and the...
