  • Islamic terrorists attack Israelis in Jerusalem

    A recent spurt of terrorists attacking Israelis in the holy capital of Jerusalem has gone largely unreported, or at the very least under-reported. Yesterday and again today, Jerusalem’s Old City was the scene of Muslim terrorists who stabbed policemen. In response, police and security defended themselves and the civilians around them by neutralizing the terrorists. […]

    Najat Al-Saeed is a Saudi-American independent academic researcher who teaches in Dubai and writes for Israel Hayom.

    Earlier this month she tweeted details about her trip to Israel, causing much discussion in Arab media.

    Now she has written about her experiences during her short trip to Israel for Al-Hurra. It was virtually all positive.

    The one slight discomfort that she felt came not from Israelis – but from Palestinians.

  • Why Does The New York Times Keep Making Errors About Jerusalem And All Israel?

    The New York Times has a running history of making errors when it comes to its descriptions of events in Israel. It has trouble identifying Israel’s eternal unified capital of Jerusalem. It has difficulty accurately describing timeslines of events.

    The New York Times’ error-prone Jerusalem bureau chief, Patrick Kingsley, is at it again.

    A full page of Sunday’s New York Times was devoted to a Kingsley dispatch from the West Bank, with reporting “contributed by Rami Nazzal and Hiba Yazbek from Burin, Myra Noveck from Yitzhar and Givat Ronen, Jonathan Shamir from Tel Aviv, and Rawan Sheikh Ahmad from Haifa.” What did this team of error-prone chief Kingsley and five helpers come up with?

    End U.N. Revisionism on Jewish Roots in Jerusalem

    Article Courtesy: Inside Sources

    The air over Jerusalem is saturated with prayers and dreams like the air over heavily industrial cities. It’s hard to breathe.
    Those words, by the Israeli poet Yehuda Amichai, testify to the rich and fraught history of Jerusalem. Sacred and singular, a symbol as much as a place, it has been coveted, conquered, and reconquered. Its layers of history can quite literally be excavated like an archaeological dig.
    One thread, however, traces to practically the origin of the ancient city: Its centrality to the Jewish people. Until recently, this self-evident truth would have prompted no contention. In early Jewish texts, Jerusalem is “the light of the world,” the heart of Jews’ collective consciousness. While Christians and Muslims have cherished Jerusalem, many would make Rome or Mecca a focal point of their global faiths. For Jews, there has only been Jerusalem.
    It is toward there that, over the course of their exile, Jews have directed their prayers. It is Jerusalem whose memory has been invoked in Jewish milestone events, whether marriage or bereavement. Jewish holidays commemorate yearly pilgrimages to Jerusalem. Even in the diaspora, sizable Jewish communities were identified with the city: Amsterdam was once called “Jerusalem of the West,” Vilnius was “Jerusalem of the North” and Thessaloniki was “Jerusalem of the Balkans.”

  • Jerusalem’s Ancient City Walls From Israel’s First Temple

    The current-day “Old City walls of Jerusalem” are certainly not the original walls of the city. Despite the fact that we so intimately connect with the images of Jerusalem today, it is important to discover and understand what Israel’s ancient and eternal capital city actually looked like in ancient times.

    ‘UNDER JERUSALEM’ REVIEW: LAYERS OF HISTORY AND FAITH

    Article Courtesy: The Wall Street Journal

    In “Civilization and Its Discontents,” Freud compared memory and its recovery to the archaeology of Rome. The visitor cannot see the earlier layers of civilization, but the guidebook says where they once were. This allows us to look at the Colosseum and imagine the Golden House of Nero below. But, Freud wrote, a single physical space cannot hold “two different contents.” If it did, then the Palazzo Caffarelli would occupy the same spot as the temple of Jupiter Capitolinus, and we would see the temple in both its early, Etruscan form and its later, imperial form.
    Freud never saw Jerusalem. Not only is its visitor’s imagination incited by the Bible, the guidebook of guidebooks, but Jerusalem’s archaeology also presents the simultaneity that Freud thought impossible. The sacred core of Jerusalem is so great that, like New York, they named it twice: Raise your head as you emerge from the warren of the Old City, and you see the Temple Mount of the Jews and the Noble Sanctuary of the Muslims. Two different contents, two different contexts—not forgetting the Christians, who cannot agree among themselves where their sacred sites should be.
