  • The wonder that is Israel

    Boaz Bismuth|Apr 23, 2021

    (JNS) — Anyone who is willing to look up for a moment from the hardships of politics and the coronavirus and examine the success of the project called the State of Israel from a broad historical perspective knows that it deserves to be crowned a resounding success. Anyone who prefers—and there are quite a few—to assess the state of the nation based on the media headlines will soon find themselves longing for the Stone Age. It seems that complaining is very fashionable these days in the political-media sphere. I’m not the first one to say this:...

  • Home at last: Jonathan Pollard arrives in Israel

    Boaz Bismuth|Jan 8, 2021

    (Israel Hayom via JNS) - Jonathan Pollard landed in Israel early Wednesday morning, one month after his parole restrictions were lifted and five years after he was released from U.S. federal prison after serving 30 years for spying for Israel. He was accompanied on the flight by his wife Esther. Due to Esther's medical condition, the Pollards chose to fly by private plane directly from New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport to Tel Aviv. As the pilots prepared to land, Pollard was...

  • Florida governor-elect Ron DeSantis: 'I will be aggressive against BDS'

    Boaz Bismuth|Nov 23, 2018

    (Israel Hayom via JNS)-If there is one American politician who has made support for Israel a daily agenda item, Florida governor-elect Ron DeSantis is that person. DeSantis, a Republican who for six years served in the U.S. House of Representatives, has his name on a series of legislative initiatives in Congress aimed at protecting and strengthening Israel, the highlight of which was his relentless push to relocate the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Even after U.S. President... Full story

  • President-elect of Brazil promises: Israel can count on our vote

    Boaz Bismuth|Nov 16, 2018

    (Israel Hayom via JNS)-Until a few weeks ago, Jair Bolsonaro, now the president-elect of Brazil, was a little-known legislator. No one thought he would go on to become the leader of the country. But on Wednesday, a week after he astonished everyone by winning the presidential election in Brazil-the largest democracy in Latin America-Bolsonaro chose Israel Hayom for what appears to be his first interview with the foreign media, and made it clear that his support for Israel and promises about... Full story

  • France knows: this is war

    Boaz Bismuth, Israel Hayom JNS.org|Nov 27, 2015

    “This is an act of war,” French President François Hollande proclaimed after convening his security cabinet on Saturday. Hollande said the Islamic State terror group was responsible for Friday night’s appalling series of terrorist attacks, in which at least 129 people lost their lives, and that the attacks were planned outside of France. “France will be merciless toward the barbarians of the Islamic State group” and “will act with all the means necessary…on all fronts: interior and exterior, in coordination with our allies who themselves are... Full story

  • Former defense chief Rumsfeld blasts White House rhetoric on Netanyahu

    Boaz Bismuth Israel Hayom, JNS.org|Mar 6, 2015

    Ahead of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's much-debated March 3 address to a joint session of Congress about the Iranian nuclear threat, former U.S. secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld said that the focus on protocol and the speech's venue, rather than on the content of Netanyahu's message, "plays into the hands" of the U.S.-Israel relationship's opponents. "I find it stunning to see the comments out of the White House on this issue," Rumsfeld said in an interview with Israel Hayom,... Full story

  • Jihad without borders

    Boaz Bismuth, JNS.org|Oct 11, 2013

    Terror has been rearing its ugly head throughout the world lately. In Kenya, a Somalia-based, al-Qaida-linked rebel group, al-Shabab, burst into Nairobi’s Westgate shopping mall and murdered dozens of victims in cold blood. In Nigeria, at least 160 people were massacred in two attacks by the radical Islamist organization Boko Haram. In Pakistan, a terrorist blew himself up outside a church in the city of Peshawar, killing more than 80 members of Pakistan’s Christian minority. In Israel, terror struck as well. Over the holiday of Sukkot, two... Full story

  • From Russia with love-a gift for the world?

    Boaz Bismuth, JNS.org|Sep 13, 2013

    Like the biblical Jacob, U.S. President Barack Obama sees a ladder in his dreams. But instead of God at the top, the American president sees his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. The Russian president, with his proposal that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad transfer his chemical weapons stockpile to international hands, will ultimately save Obama from ordering an attack. It’s not clear what is preferable to Obama—Putin’s solution or a “no” vote from Congress. Either way, Obama—regardless of wh... Full story
