On Yom Kippur, Israel cannot expect forgiveness
Thirty years ago, the State of Israel attempted to make a compromise. It tried being the bigger man. The responsible side. The tolerant side. It has done so just a few times during its history, and the Oslo Accords...

Israel’s in despair. It should’ve been for decades
Israel is in despair. Israelis, or more specifically, civically aware and civically engaged Israelis have been protesting for the entirety of 2023, voicing their opposition to their Prime Minister’s latest and greatest, the Great Beheading of Israel’s Judiciary. As opposition...
