The Jewish Voice and Opinion Is Now TheJewishVoiceAndOpinion.com: Same Point of View, Same Features, New Format...

Jun 24, 2015 by

By Susan L. Rosenbluth, editor and publisher After 28 years, The Jewish Voice and Opinion is moving into the 21st century. While it will still be devoted to speaking out forcefully and unashamedly for the unique concerns of what we call “Classical Judaism,” it will now do so online at TheJewishVoiceAndOpinion.com. As an unabashedly politically conservative news- magazine, The Jewish Voice and Opinion has always taken as its mission to present news and feature articles of interest to the Jewish community that are not generally available elsewhere in the Jewish or secular media. The publication has always been forthright in its ardent support for the nationalist camp in Israel, including the often beleaguered residents of Judea and Samaria and the undivided, eternal capital of the Jewish State, Jerusalem. As it has for 28 years, the publication, now online, will accept...

What’s Going On in Teaneck?

Jun 24, 2015 by

What’s going on in Teaneck? It seems that Chuck Powers and his wife, Barbara “People worry that there’s a group that wants [Teaneck] to become an Orthodox community like some of the ones in Rockland County” Toffler, are now part of a group that says its purpose is “to make sure that the wider public knows what’s going on.” But “Teaneck Transparency Trust” may have more on its mind than just finding “a way for Teaneck residents readily to get information they need/want” to check up on their elected officials—including several whom the Powers-Toffler team holds responsible for Dr. Toffler’s official censure a few years ago when she was a Teaneck Councilwoman. According to Teaneck official documents, one of the founding members of Teaneck Transparency Trust is Timothy Wells who, last month,  was charged...

Hamas Is in Trouble: ISIS Wants Gaza; The PA-Hamas “Unity” Government Is on the Skids; and a Pact with Israel Could Be Their Only Hope...

Jun 23, 2015 by

Operation Protective Edge ended last August, and while Hamas has made clear it still considers Israel its arch enemy, it now apparently sees an uneasy calm with the Jewish state as its only alternative to utter destruction. It is no secret that Hamas faces fierce adversaries on all sides. The Army of the Islamic State, an ISIS-affiliated group in Gaza, has threatened to wage war against Hamas, which ISIS considers “heretical.” The “unity government” between the PA’s Fatah movement, which rules in the Arab areas of Judea and Samaria, and Hamas in Gaza appears on the verge of collapse. On June 17, the unity government’s Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah handed his resignation to PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas. Another such government may or may not be formed, but Mr. Abbas has made it clear it...

Israel Says Palestinian Casualty Figures from Operation Protective Edge Were 1 Terrorist for Every Civilian Killed, but There Is Evidence That Many of the Civilians were Part of “Hamas’s Civilian...

Jun 23, 2015 by

Calls to haul Israeli leaders and individual soldiers to the International Criminal Court (ICC) to answer for “war crimes” committed during Operation Protective Edge last summer have been issued by Hamas and its supporters around the world. The war, which took place in Gaza in the summer of 2014, was Israel’s response to thousands of missiles fired at Israeli civilian targets by Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and other terrorist groups in Gaza, as well as the kidnapping of three teenagers by Hamas operatives in Judea. While the UN Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) has concerned itself chiefly with condemning Israel for the Gaza conflict, the PA’s suit against Israel in the ICC includes Operation Protective Edge as well Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria and the fact that Arab terrorists are serving sentences in Israeli prisons....
