Most of what happened in Israel’s election was predictable. But David Hazony says there were a few last-minute surprises that will resonate far beyond the coming weeks.
Netanyahu’s job isn’t to make Americans feel like everything’s okay. It’s to protect Israelis — even if that requires a controversial address to Congress, David Hazony argues.
Benjamin Netanyahu is taking a beating over his planned speech to Congress. David Hazony says if all sides set politics aside, we might see why Bibi is right.
By suspending talks with the Palestinian Authority over its decision to join with Hamas, Israel was taking what can only be called a moral stand, writes David Hazony.
The most important issue in the Middle East peace talks is finally on the table. Palestinians must recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state if the conflict is to end, David Hazony writes.
For Israelis, Ariel Sharon represented a treasured independence and fierceness of spirit, writes David Hazony. This is a Sharon that Diaspora Jews never understood.
‘If American Judaism could offer a compelling alternative to Israeli culture, rather than accept its eventual supremacy, what would that look like?’ David Hazony asks.
The attacks in London and Boston show the West is facing a totally new kind of terrorism. It may pose even greater threats to our liberty than Al Qaeda.
American gun-rights backers have sought to invoke Israel’s experience to bolster their claim that a heavily armed society is safer. If only they knew how wrong they are.
If the election has proved anything, it’s that Israelis never did lurch to the right. The reality is decidedly more nuanced, argues David Hazony.
