The propaganda by anti-Israel activists and faux “human rights” groups claims there are so many checkpoints in the West Bank that Palestinians have no freedom of movement.

In fact, as suicide bombings and similar attacks have decreased, so have the number of checkpoints. Most of the main checkpoints are now at areas...

Honeypot traps are in the news after the CNN-Buzzfeed Trump-Russia fiasco.

What’s a honeypot trap? Seriously, haven’t you read any spy novels? It when an intelligence agency offers up honey (a girl, boy, whatever) to a target, who then partakes of the honey not knowing the event is being filmed for future...

Despite its name, Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) isn’t Jewish or for peace. It’s a radical group that provides cover to the anti-Israel movement, particularly on campuses, by legitimizing and mainstreaming its assault on Jewish identity.
