It’s the only entrance to the Temple Mount outside of the Arab Quarter. Currently it is accessed by the bridge you see in the photo. The dirt and rock wall that collapsed in 2004 was the predecessor but then the focus was on the entrance that for most people was a non-entity prior to the collapse.

The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs has sent out an update on the bridge and the simmering uproar from Arabs about the construction...

“We can’t just wait for Congress.” President Obama.

Gridlock. The word sounds bad to some. The media prints it in large black letters like the ones used to announce 9/11.

Gridlock in government is a terrible thing, the media says.

Allow me to disagree.

We are a government with executive, judicial and legislative branches. It was established so there would be checks and balances.

I hate to tell...

When she and Ehud Olmert were running the show in Jerusalem they were offering the Palestinians – and Hamas – large numbers of freed prisoners for IDF soldier Gilad Shalit. Now that she is out of power and primarily out of the nation’s focus things are not the same as back then.

Now that the deal is over she’s criticizing Bibi – again.

“Israel is losing its military deterrence,” she said. That might be true in some...

What do you get when you put 800 Hassids, a flying squadron of policemen and a parking lot operating on the Sabbath?

Why a mob scene, of course.

That was the event outside the Jaffe Gate down on the street that runs between the David Citadel Hotel and the Mamilla Hotel and Mall. Eventually mounted policemen with flash bang grenades broke up the melee, and everyone went home feeling like they had had a great time.

Is PA President Mahmoud Abbas coming lately to the ball? Israel, Egypt and Hamas made an agreement to swap prisoners for Gilad Shalit (and the silly non-spy that Egypt has).

Now Abbas has come out and said that former PM Ehud Olmert promised to release 500 Fatah prisoners. He wants Bibi to honor the promise. Is this going anywhere?

Maybe further than you think at first blush.

Those in the know who are close...

The “token liberal” on The Fox Report, Juan Williams. Not really, but that’s what the NPR, that fired him, and others think.

I for one, enjoy Williams, though I often don’t agree with him. Yes, he is usually an Obama-justifier. Yes, he’s liberal in many ways, but he is also, I believe, a genuinely nice guy, a family man, and a good American.

He spoke years ago about his Christian faith making him a different man, and I enjoyed that.

Now there is another facet of Williams I thought you might want to see.

Conservative pundit Patrick J. Buchanan is acerbic, articulate, argumentative and even anti-Semitic in a general way at times.

But he is also insightful, conservative to the core, anti-one government and Jesuit-trained. Can you trust his opinion? The answer, like for most folks, is “sometimes.”

He did a piece for World News Daily recently that we read and thought perhaps would benefit our readers. In this instance...

Please forgive the grandstanding. We just thought that now and then it might be nice to welcome new readers and listeners and share some of what is behind

In 2004, after pastoring a Baptist church for almost 28 years we felt the definite leading of God to resign that post and move to Israel. It meant leaving our son and his wife and our two beloved grandchildren. My wife and I both had turbulent childhoods...

This week Israel battled northern forest fires again, at the end of a long dry season, and just before the rains once more come to the land.

In Lebanon, the leader of the Hezbollah terrorist group, Hassan Nasrallah, was trying to put out some fires of his own.

He proclaimed loudly that “Next time, we'll begin with attack on Tel Aviv!”

That bluster belies the truth that he has some real problems of his own....
