It’s 1938 all over again

It’s 1938 all over again

by Melanie Phillips When Hassan Rouhani was elected President of Iran, western leaders declared, in the teeth of stark evidence to the contrary, that this man was a reformer. So they rushed to do a deal with him over Iran’s nuclear programme, considered by the west to be a threat to the free world. But Rouhani does not run Iran. The man who actually calls the shots – the only man who matters – is Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei. Earlier this week, Khamenei said the Jews of Israel ‘cannot be called humans, they are like animals, some of them’…

Jews and Muslims to share al-Aqsa Mosque?

Israel braces for reaction to proposed law that would allow Jews to pray in the grounds of Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa mosque. By Khalid Amayreh The al-Aqsa Mosque is one of Islam’s three most holy sites [Getty Images] Occupied East Jerusalem – Until a few weeks ago, most Israeli and Palestinian pundits dismissed the possibility of a Palestinian uprising in the near future.

‘Netanyahu is not bluffing on intention to strike Iran’

   Photo by: REUTERS/Amir Cohen By MICHAEL WILNER  Ex-army official: PM “thinks it’s the 1930s.

Jerusalem home harbors buried Second Temple artifacts

Jerusalem home harbors buried Second Temple artifacts

The Siebenberg House Museum in Jerusalem’s Old City Reopens to Public By Anav Silverman Tazpit News Agency Miriam Siebenberg lives in a very unusual house – unusual because of the fact that her home was built on top of another home, one that existed over 2,000 years ago. Within the ancient walls of Jerusalem’s Old City, Miriam and her husband Theo purchased a house after the Six Day War, eventually discovering that it contained a treasure trove of history buried deep underground. In the Siebenberg’s house, a collection of archaeological artifacts discovered after years of digging in the basement, appear…

Did the EU just back Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount?

Ryan Jones Israel might have just scored European Union support for finally allowing Jews the right to pray atop Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, the holiest site in the world for Jews and many Christians.

Purim

Purim

By Gil Ilutowich We all know the story told in the Book of Esther. Haman wanted "to destroy, to kill, and to exterminate" all Jews, but in the end the Jews defeated their enemies. The culmination of their victory was the killing of the ten sons of Haman, whose names the book details. An intriguing dialogue takes place between Queen Esther and Ahasverus a few verses later: (Esther 9:12-14) And the king said to Esther the queen: The Jews have slain and destroyed five hundred men in Shushan the capital, and the ten sons of Haman...Now whatever your petition, it…

An anti-Semitic agenda at the UN

By ANNE BAYEFSKY 0 Israel has taken a stand against suffering through a review by a council that commends Syria and demonizes its southern neighbor. PM Binyamin Netanyahu at UN Photo: REUTERS Just days after the UN put on a show about Holocaust remembrance, it is business as usual in terms of demonizing and encouraging hatred of Jews in the present.

Wake up, Jews!

By Rabbi Aryeh Spero No doubt, it's hard for people to give up their lifelong attachments and identity. But there are moments in history when a turning point arrives, and those with eyes to see and ears to hear recognize it. Many Jews have made political liberalism their religion and personal identity and the Democrat Party their unexamined home and comfort zone. But everything changed early September. Rarely do modern-day political conventions startle. The Democratic National Convention, however, was earthshaking and a warning to Jews to wake up. Democrat delegates decided to stick it to Israel. We no longer care,…

By Aviel Schneider On one of Israel's largest websites Ynet a yellow banner with large letters appeared on Saturday proclaiming the coming of the Messiah. "The Messiah is in Israel.
