Yale Zussman's Suggested Readings

Hi Folks,
Here is my latest collection of suggested readings.  You will note that the mood darkens as we move into the late fall.  The tea leaves point toward even worse to come with the arrival of winter.

Palestinians' Latest "Apartheid Fatwa"
by Bassam Tawil
July 17, 2018

Jerusalem Mufti bans sale of land to Jews because of waqfrequirements.
Israeli Officials Let Down Guard On Trump, Kotel

by Gary Rosenblatt
New York Jewish Week
Nov 7, 2018

Worth reading.

It's time to acknowledge that anti-Zionism is antisemitism, and that the antisemitism of the Left and of the Muslim World is a clearer danger to more Jews than the antisemitism of the American Right.

Case in point from London:
The Depths to Which the Oslo Process Has Driven Israel

Ephraim Karsh
Nov 20, 2018

Consequences of "Peace processing" for Israeli political parties and elections.
Jews Feel Safer in Europe's Conservative East Than Its Liberal West -- A pervasive false impression.

Based on survey data from interviews with Jewish leaders in various European countries.
For a State, Palestinians Would Cede "Right of Return" -- and More

David Pollock is the Bernstein Fellow at The Washington Institute
Fikra Forum
December 3, 2018

Read carefully. The data presented don't actually support the title. What Pollock reports is that there are somePalestinians ready to make these concessions, but nowhere near enough to make a solution workable.
Is Israel weighing strike options in Lebanon?

Another take on Israel vs. Hezbollah/Iran.
The mole inside the Hezbollah tunnel

Reviews the consequences of Israel's discovery and destruction of a Hezbollah tunnel into Israel. This incident likely foretells a very violent confrontation with Hezbollah, and possibly also with Iran.
Let me take this opportunity to wish Jewish readers a Happy Hanukkah, and if I don't send another package by then, a Merry Christmas to my Christian readers.  I'll risk waiting for the "Happy New Year" to follow.
