The case for Arab victims of terror, new IDF rules of engagement, Israeli Supreme Court overreach and Thomas Friedman’s article are today’s topics.
First, White House intervention in the New York trial regarding compensation for Palestinians allegedly targeted by Jewish extremists, a move that shows marked support for the PA.
Then, new laws essentially tie the hands of Israeli soldiers stationed in Judea and Samaria, severely limiting the means the IDF is allowed to use to defuse tensions on the ground — which puts the soldiers themselves in even greater danger.
Next, the Israeli Supreme Court strikes down the Infiltrators Law for the third time. This prompts a conversation of separation of powers, branches of government and the infiltration issue as a whole.
Finally, Thomas Friedman portends to understand Israeli society in his New York Times column, “If I Were an Israeli Looking at the Iran Deal.” But the points he makes prove beyond all doubt that he far from comprehends the attitude and psyche of the people of Israel.
