Op-ed: It would be very dangerous to see Jewish actress’s defiant move as a passing episode or meaningless provocation. She is a symbol of dramatic changes taking place within the family, a sign of US Jews’ profound disapproval of what they see as a very problematic direction the Jewish state is headed in.
Analysis: The ordinary Palestinian is not only politically weary, he is also increasingly alienated from his leadership and political institutions as venues to propel a meaningful change in his life. Under such circumstances, responding to Hamas’ calls to protest and risk one’s lives by marching towards the border makes little sense.
Analysis: While unsubstantiated, Hamas' allegation that the Mossad is responsible for the killing of Palestinian engineer and Hamas member Fadi Albatsh is not without merit. Malaysia, a close ally of the Gaza terror organization, has for years served as fertile grounds for recruitment and training of new operatives set to join Hamas' ranks.
Op-ed: Your decision to boycott an apolitical event for fear of being seen to endorse Netanyahu was illogical and contradictory. You have let Israel down, along with the family and friends you claim to cherish, by demonizing their defenders.
