The list of European tourist destinations is long, but the list of European targets of terrorists is catching up quickly: Berlin, Brussels, London, Madrid, Moscow, Nice, Paris, Stockholm. These and others have been the site of violent attacks ending in tragedy. Weapons include bombs, knives and ordinary cars. And why only think of Europe? Bali, […]

David B. Goldberg, M.A.

In the Palestinian Authority, a sure way of guaranteeing family income is to become a martyr or to land in an Israeli prison. Foreign aid subsidizes that income and inspires ongoing terrorism. A Palestinian Media Watch report (“PA defies US, will raise payments to martyrs’ families,” April 9, 2017) has revealed that payments to the […]

A statistic given little attention amid all the controversy surrounding the new immigrants to Europe from the Middle East concerns Muslim men who have multiple wives.

The parents of a newborn baby had been advised by their local doctor in an Arab village east of Tel Aviv to have an abortion because their baby was developing intestines outside her body. But they refused. Recently, Israeli doctors in Jerusalem performed surgery on the 17-hour-old girl and put all the organs back in […]

Inspiring scenes in Israel

David B. Goldberg, M.A.

What do the following stories all have in common? A curious message was left on our answering machine in Jerusalem a few days ago: A store clerk called and said my father had been at the pharmacy and forgotten two shekels of change on the counter. If my father wanted the coin, he should come […]

Good News from Israel

David B. Goldberg, M.A.

Arabs choose Israel Mayor Dulan abu-Saleh, the leader of Majdal Shams, the largest Druze town on the Golan Heights, is angry…at the United Nations. For decades, the UN has condemned Israel for “imposing economic and social hardships on his community,” but the Arab mayor calls it a “total joke.” (Makor Rishon, July 29, 2016) He […]
