The issue of settlements has reached a boiling point among the Israeli government, the US government, and settlers. J.J. Goldberg explains why.
Israel has long used the main world Zionist group to funnel funds to West Bank settlements. Will leaders soon close the loophole that allows the cash to flow without scrutiny?
Left and right are trading insults about who cares more about the Jews. It ain’t the Israeli elections, but J.J. Goldberg explains why a little-known vote is just as contentious — if not more so.
Hours before Israel’s Knesset voted Monday evening to disperse and head to elections, Prime Minister Netanyahu asked the finance committee to approve an “emergency” $40M grant to settlements.
The Israeli government continues to enjoy a measure of deniability in settlement activity, thanks to a postponed vote on the bill that would force transparency, writes J.J. Goldberg.
Diaspora Jews in the advocacy world have returned to Jerusalem like the swallows to Capistrano. They come to debate big issues — but J.J. Goldberg suggests it all feels a bit staged.
The World Zionist Organization’s Settlement Division has financed NIS 400,000 worth of infrastructure work in the West Bank outpost of Negohot, even though the work was carried out without building permits.
