People are sending me information about Richard Spencer’s National Policy Institute conference in Washington D.C. They are neo-Nazis. They raise their hands in a Nazi salute and say Sieg Heil. They say they love Trump.
You know what? Maybe in their warped minds they think he’ll be good for them. Yeah, that’s what the Left, some of whom really do support Muslim-Nazi terrorists, would love you to think. They are idiots- the Sieg Heilers- and dead wrong.
So, for the record, this is the current narrative that the mainstream media is using to attack …

The most surprising and brutal of elections is finally over. For those of us who favored Donald Trump, there is a sense of true relief, and a sincere hope that he will follow through on his promises to make American great again by securing her borders, eliminating unvetted immigration, and renegotiating trade deals that will see jobs and manufacturing plants flood back to American soil, bringing a new prosperity and hope for the forgotten poor, struggling middle class, and hopeless unemployed.
For those who did not experience the pleasure of having your candidate win, or participate …

“If there is any good in them, it appears then [at a time of prosperity and success] or never … It is then, and basking in the sunshine of unmerited fortune, that low, sordid, ungenerous, and reptile souls swell with their hoarded poisons; it is then that they display their odious splendor, and shine out in the full lustre of their native villainy and baseness. It is in that season that no man of sense or honour can be mistaken for one of them.”
So wrote Edmund Burke in his “Letter to a Member of …

The same kind of American Jews who dropped off my list in droves when I begged them not to vote for Barack Hussein Obama, are now out in full force. They don’t believe that, as an American who lives in Israel (and pays taxes both in the US and Israel), I have a right to vote. And those who believe I do, think that my opinions are “a disgrace.”
They are warning me no one will buy my books. Or invite me to speak. Yes, the thought police and the American Jewish liberal J-Street …

I can certainly see why women, including Jewish women, would prefer a seemingly well-spoken, mature senior stateswoman, to a brash, loud-mouthed political neophyte who has made so many off-handedly offensive locker-room comments about women.
This would be your instinct.
How lovely, how easy, it would be then, to vote in a woman running against a man like that.
And how disastrously wrong.
If you love Israel, if you love America, don’t vote for Hillary Clinton
I’ll give you the facts, but honestly, past experience does not leave me hopeful. Eight years ago, I tried to deter …

I’m still getting lots of feedback on my last post regarding the US elections. Some people don’t think I have a right to express my opinion about the American elections because I live in Israel.
I find that kind of hilarious, considering how American Jews who aren’t citizens of Israel and who don’t pay Israel taxes, or send their sons and daughters and husbands and fathers to the Israeli army, or have to deal with Palestinian scum terrorists, never hesitate to tell us what to do.
I, on the other hand, do …

Yes, I’m voting for Donald Trump. And I’m proud of it.
If anyone had told me two years ago that I’d be making that statement, I would have done a Jon Stewart eye roll and stare. What? The guy from reality TV? The “You’re fired” guy with the funny hair and New York accent? That guy?!
But things have happened in the last few years that have made me —and many pro-Israel Americans in both countries—decide that this is not only our best but our only choice.
First of all, there is …

It seems as if the whole world is holding its breath, waiting for some kind of resolution. Millions have uprooted themselves from their homes, willingly or unwillingly, and now are pushing to enter the homes of others all over the world. Some are seeking a better life, and some come with a hidden agenda of contempt for the homes they enter, a desire to destroy and uproot the calm, satisfied lives of people who don’t meet their moral or religious standards.
They are waiting, waiting on the sidelines, waiting to make their push, to break open …

It happened in March, on our silliest, most joyous holiday, Purim. Two Palestinian terrorists walked into the Jewish enclave in Hebron, took out knives and stabbed a soldier. One terrorist was killed; the second lay on the ground twitching until an Israeli soldier, initially referred to as Sergeant A and later identified as Elor Azaria, calmly shot him in the head. The controversial NGO B’Tselem, well known for its fostering of anti-Israel propaganda, filmed the incident, then uploaded it to the Internet.
It made ugly viewing.
Unsurprisingly, Israel’s critics had a field day. Based on the …

I was watching another one of Pat Condell’s marvelous rants on YouTube when by chance I came across this stunning video created by an ex-Muslim who grew up in the Middle East and attended Islamic schools. Her explanation of Islam left me in shock and awe. So clear. So unequivocal. It cuts through all the insane chatter, the talking heads, the politically-correct, dim-witted speech.
You HAVE TO listen to her. Only then will you truly understand what is going on in the world, the “refugees”, ISIS, Islamic faith, etc. etc. …
To see this brave …

It was one of those encounters that had happened to me so many times on book tour in America: the car ride back to my hotel from the Jewish Community Center after a few hours of lecturing, answering questions and signing books. Usually, the drivers in these short rides were enthusiastic volunteers who were fans and /or members of the book committee that had invited me in the first place.
This ride was no different. Slim, pretty, with expensive diamond rings, driving the latest hybrid, my driver spoke to me knowledgeably about my books and about …

After an emotionally exhausting election campaign in which I found myself—for the first time ever—terrified that the wrong results might prove an existential threat to Israel’s existence, the moment of truth had come. There, on a large screen in a (literally) cheesy kosher Italian restaurant in Paris’s 16th arrondissement, I was about to see the results of the exit poll at the close of voting.
I wasn’t alone. The place was packed with French Jews, members of B’nai B’rith, who had arranged the dinner for me. I was going to say a few words in Hebrew, …

It is 3:59 P.M. on February 18. I am sitting in the office of former house manager Menny Naftali, who is suing the Netanyahus for $290,000 claiming he was insulted, treated unfairly, yadda, yadda, yadda. There are piles of plastic bags stuffed with unidentifiable material, a randomly placed iron, an unhappy plant, a round top to something or other, and a half-eaten bar of Elite chocolate. I’m thinking: If this is the way Naftali left it, the Netanyahus should be suing him. At four PM the Comptroller’s Report is due to be released concerning the Netanyahus …

When I was invited to join the Prime Minister at his home in Jerusalem, along with other members of the English-speaking community in Israel, I expected to find myself in a large auditorium in which I would need binoculars to see Benjamin Netanyahu. To my surprise, the room was an outdoor space that could accommodate no more than fifty, with chairs arranged in an intimate circle, with a small table in the front.
The Prime Minister entered and to everyone’s complete astonishment, he went around the room, warmly shaking everyone’s hands, nodding to those he had …

No place is safe, not Jerusalem, or the coffee houses of Tel Aviv or the port city of Haifa. Distance is no longer a factor. The rockets go everywhere, undirected, carelessly, to fall on hospitals, nursery schools, summer camps. Miraculously, they are diverted and destroyed, again and again and again.
Three faces. They could be my sons, or yours. They peer out at us wherever we go. There are special prayer sessions at the synagogue, reminding me of those days when we prayed for the safe return of Nachshon Wachsman, my friend and neighbor’s boy.

Fear of ostracism—not lack of conviction—prevents some haredi men from enlisting.
A day before the haredi “million man march” called to protest the new drafting of yeshiva students, I sat in my synagogue in Jerusalem’s German Colony as Rabbi Benny Lau got up to speak. This rabbi is no stranger to the haredi world; he is the nephew of the former Chief Rabbi of Israel, Meir Lau, and cousin to the present Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi, David Lau. But the congregation was not surprised to hear him lash out with vehemence against the planned protest. Calling it …
