It’s beginning to look like it will be another hot summer in Israel.

There was a bus explosion near Jerusalem earlier today. At first there was confusion as to whether it was a bomb or some technical failure. Police have just confirmed that it w...

In a post last December we highlighted the history of Israel’s prisoner exchanges with various Palestinian armed factions. As we noted:

For the past three decades, Israel has been forced to exchange scores of incarcerated terrorists for a mere handful of its POWs. In the majority of these lopsided prisoner swaps the...

Tunnel warfare was a key to Hamas surviving the 2014 Gaza War.

Hamas used an extensive tunnel system to hide under civilian structures, to move terrorists, and to launch raids into Israel.

Tunnel entrances usually were within civilian homes in Gaza:

The hypocrisy of this administration with respect to Israel can, at times, be stunning. One of those times was in August of 2014, in the middle of the Israeli military operation known as Operation Protective Edge, which was designed to stop rocket-fire emanating from Gaza.

A school run by UNRWA, the UN agency that...

Last spring I visited Sderot, the Israeli town on the Gaza border.

Sderot is best known internationally as the town most frequently under rocket attack with almost no warning because of the short distance. Sderot has developed extensive shelter systems, as I discussed in Israelis shelter in place near Gaza. The system...

This is the 6th in our look back at the summer 2014 Gaza conflict.

On August 26, 2014, the active Gaza fighting stopped with agreement on a ceasefire. How long that lasts is anyone’s guess. Hamas is bragging that it has rebuilt tunnels leading into Israel and its rocket stockpiles and production.

It’s important to do this because a relentless propaganda campaign which falsely portrays the conflict as initiated and continued by Israel, when in fact it was initiated by Hamas rocket fire and continued by...

It’s a fitting occasion to revisit the media bias that frames the international view of the 2014 Gaza conflict, as the f...

At least no one got hurt this time.

But Gaza Flotilla III was a complete flop.

Meant to break Israel’s perfectly legal naval blockade of Gaza (more on legality here), designed to stop Iranian shipments of weapons, the flotilla avoided the disaster of Gaza Flotilla I, in which 9 people were killed when...

First the good news, the so-called Schabas report, the United Nations Human Rights Council inquiry into last year’s war between Hamas and Israel, isn’t as bad as its predecessor, the infamous, discredited Goldstone report. But it’s still pretty bad.

The Schabas report is named for the judge who originally headed it, William...

Israel has a military blockade on the Gaza strip due to Hamas control which has turned the 40-mile long strip of land into an Iranian rocket base. There are other radical groups there, such as Islamic Jihad and now ISIS-related groups, who also have rockets.

Iran could ship vastly larger and more...

Because I am a glutton for punishment, I read the anti-Zionist Mondoweiss website.

I do it, so you don’t have to.

One of the authors there posted this video put out by the Israeli Foreign Ministry, apparently one in a series, as if it were a bad thing.

Seems pretty much on target...

It’s too late to undo the massive propaganda campaign surrounding the 2014 Gaza conflict, which Israel called Operation Protective Edge.

False statistics about civilian casualties were put out by Hamas ministries and then adopted without question by the UN, “human rights” groups, and the media to create the narrative that “most” or...
