Three Comments Related to Israel

By Arkady MamayskyWho speaks for me?Many voices have been heard recently, including of course those of J Street, criticizing Prime Minister Netanyahu for the statement that he speaks for all Jews.I have the honor to be one of 320 million US citizens, and when it comes to my rights and responsibilities as a citizen of our great country, the President and Congress speak for me.At the same time, I have the honor to belong to the great (not by numbers but by achievements), ancient Jewish nation, a large part of which is still, because of our difficult history, spread all…

Alex Brummer - Netanyahu's re-election: A triumph of tenacity

WJC, Benjamin Netanyahu’s democratic election to a record fourth term as Israeli prime minister last week - in a region bereft of free elections - was, in one sense, a triumph of tenacity.He may be regarded by critics in Washington and other Western capitals as a divisive figure who will damage the peace process between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. But on a political level, it is hard not to admire his fierce rhetorical skills in defense of the Jewish state, and his ability to swing his way one of the most disputative and well-educated electorates in the world.Aggressive talk…

Planning for the Unexpected

Shiri MalcaThe past week of bloodshed in Paris greatly anguished me on a number of different levels. First, as a mother and married woman who is incapable of even imagining the intensity of the pain of such a cruel loss, and second, as an attorney specializing in family law who knows from close range how such unexpected events inflict a triple blow: emotionally, economically, and legally.One of those murdered in the attack is Francois-Michel Saada, of blessed memory, who was 64 years old. From the media we heard that he purchased an apartment in Israel, and that he apparently planned…

Yes, We Occupied This Land

By Arkady MamayskyThe limited Israeli presence in Judea and Samaria (the so-called West Bank) is labeled by its enemies, and unfortunately by many media outlets, as an “occupation.” In reality, this limited presence is dictated mainly by Israeli security needs, and costs Israel significant resources and sometimes the lives of its solders and citizens. So is it correct to call it occupation?Yes, we did occupy this land, but not in 1948 or 1967. (Those who call the Israeli presence an occupation just make a small historical mistake.) We occupied Canaan around 1000 Before Common Era – more than 3000 years…

Combating the Mideast’s Growing Instability

By Dr. David Leffler Dangerous Mideast unrest continues. Israel and Gaza tensions remain high. Jordan has started bombing. Syria has been at war for some time. The Mideast situation would certainly become even worse if war breaks out in Yemen and spills into other countries.These growing hostilities pour ever more fuel on a fire that is difficult to control. Result: Hopes for stability and a lasting Mideast peace and stability pushed even farther into the future.Invincible Defense Technology (IDT), a Proven, State-of-the-Art, Non-violent Military Solution Yet the mounting misery could end quickly. The rising tensions could be rapidly reduced in…

Intermarriage Can Increase Our Numbers

By Arkady Mamaysky Intermarriage is increasingly becoming a subject of concern in Jewish circles. But should it? When two people fall in love, it should be a happy occasion rather than a cause for lament. It would be more productive to discuss some ideas of how intermarriage can increase, rather than decrease, the number of Jewish people.When any modern person, whether Jewish or thinking about conversion, reads the Torah, he finds some commandments that are not acceptable by today’s moral norms (for example, the commandment to kill every person in the tribe we are fighting, even including infants). He also…

PM Netanyahu: "Show Me the Science!"

By Dr. David LefflerRemember "Show me the money," from the film Jerry Maguire? We ask Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: "Show me the Science!" He asserts that bombardment of Gaza will continue... . "We are determined to continue the campaign with all means and as is needed. We will not stop until we guarantee full security and quiet for the residents of the south and all citizens of Israel."Can PM Netanyahu cite any scientific research published in reputable peer-reviewed journals showing that bombardment will create full security and quiet?Is bombing going to create lasting peace? There is no statistically-validated guarantee that…

Anti-Semitism: Why do they hate us?

By Arkady MamayskyWhen a Jewish person reads the ADL’s survey on antisemitism or simply watches everyday news he or she faces some questions: ● How it is possible in 21 century?● How it is possible after the Holocaust?● Or simply why do they hate me? I never did anything wrong to anybody, on contrary I always try to be good to people, to help people?● Why does Anti-Semitism exist and what brought it into existence?● How to get rid of it? What follows is an attempt to find at least some answers to these questions - not a complete answer…
