Why Israel must not withdraw

By Robert W. Tracinski

The conventional wisdom is that the Israeli occupation and resulting Palestinian "resentment" is the cause of the current conflict. This is the exact opposite of the truth. The massive escalation of the Palestinians' terrorist war actually coincides with the withdrawal of Israel's occupation.

Under the 1993 Oslo accords, Israel has spent most of the last decade pulling out of Palestinian territories and transferring control to Yasser Arafat. The result was not peace, but the creation of a Palestinian regime based on anti-Jewish terrorism.

Making sense of
Bush's Mideast actions

By Michael Kelly

On April 4, George Bush gave a lecture to the Middle East in which he (already famously) said that he expected results. Given the results to date, it is tempting to look upon the president's demand as ill conceived and his nascent initiative as a failure. But the results Bush really expected were not exactly those he called for.

No chicken soup
for the Muslim hearth

By Suzanne Fields

Mothers, according to Jewish tradition, are protective of their children. "No matter how many children parents have," according to a Yiddish folk saying, "each child is the only one they have."

Such attitudes may create pampered sons and Jewish princesses, but also mean that Jewish parents expect their children to live life to the fullest. It's inconceivable that suicide bombers could come out of such a culture. This is why the terrorists try to break the Israeli will by using their own children as suicide bombs, sending them to places where Jewish children are most vulnerable, in pizza parlors, malls, buses and at the Passover seder.
