A senior Israeli official responded indirectly to two reports that blamed Israel in part for the “deepening fisical crisis” of the Palestinian Authority.

“The instinct is to blame Israel for the occupation,” said Danny Ayalon, Israel’s deputy foreign minister, about reports from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

Yes, Israel, There Is Life in Galus

If you are reading this, you are probably Jewish, and there's a good chance you live outside of Israel. But maybe you didn't know that Jewish life exists where you are, and that is sometimes even interesting, and important to understand.

Rubin Margules insisted we should stop calling the land occupied territories. “We occupy no one’s land but have returned to the land that God promised us.”

Margules, a longtime Zionist activist, was one of the honorees at the 29th annual dinner of the  American Friends of Bet El Yeshiva Center last week at the Marriott Marquis in New York. Bet El, called the place where Jewish history began, is situated on that land, a heartbeat north of Jerusalem, a stone’s throw east of Ramallah.

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- They were the devils they knew.

But the sudden upheaval in the region that in a matter of weeks has toppled regimes in Tunisia and Egypt, and threatens autocrats in Libya, Yemen, Bahrain and elsewhere, is forcing Israel to grapple with how to recalibrate for dramatic change.
