The reaction to Donald Trump’s announcement that the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and plans to move the Embassy has not generated nearly the heat and fury as predicted.

During the campaign and transition, Donald Trump was clear in his promise to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, Israel’s capital.

If history proves one thing, it’s that giving in to Palestinian threats only leads to intransigence and more threats. Unfortunately, for the second time the Trump administration has walked back an announced policy in just such a circumstance.

The first walk back had to do with moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel...

In dozens of posts we’ve highlighted how the anti-Zionist, non-Jewish group “Jewish Voice for Peace” (JVP) enables, legitimizes and mainstreams antisemitism by providing a seemingly Jewish cover for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) and similar movements.

But JVP isn’t merely an enabler of antisemitism. JVP also itself is a producer of...

Donald Trump will be leaving Saudi Arabia overnight (Eastern time) and flying directly to Israel.

That direct flight itself is historic, since the Saudis do not allow flights directly to or from Israel.

One of his first stops in Israel will be the Western Wall, the holiest place at which Jews are permitted...
