Lest we forget

The Jewish Advocate
By: Israel Bonan

From 1940 to 1976, nearly one million Jews were expelled from their homes in Middle East and North Africa, most of the refugees were resettled in Israel. JIMENA (Jews Indigenous to the Middle East and North Africa) is part of an international campaign, organized locally by the Jewish Community Relations Council, to publicize the stories of the Jewish refugees and advocate for legislation to recognize their rights.

Jimmy Carter takes Israel-Hate Mainstream

The publication of a book entitled "Palestine: Peace not Apartheid" by Jimmy Carter, a former US President, should have set off alarm bells not only for Zionists and Israelis, but for anyone who wishes for peace in the Middle East. It is not just another Israel-bashing screed, but a signal that even in the US, Israel bashing has gone mainstream.

Israel's quiet economic miracle

Many might have missed what could be the most important news from Israel this year, because it doesn't involve bombing or killing anyone or giving up any land. For the first time in 58 years, Israel has a positive balance of trade. This reckoning apparently includes the giant investment of Warren Buffet in the Iscar tool and die company, and the performance may not be repeated every year. Nonetheless, it is a step in the right direction, and an important achievement for Israel and for Zionism. Ten or fifteen years ago, it would have been unimaginable that the Israeli Sheqel might become stronger currency than the American dollar, but it is a fact nonetheless, at least for now.

Israel: Democracy or "State of all its citizens?"

Like almost every Israeli I have agonized over the question, "Is Israel a Jewish State or a democratic state of all its citizens?." Tom Segev relates how a group of Israeli Jews and Arabs tried to solve this problem in a democratic way, acceptable to all sides, by hammering out a constitution that would guarantee equal rights.

Israeli-Palestinian cease fire and what it might mean

The logic behind the current Israeli-Palestinian "cease-fire" is that it is possibly better than nothing, and that in any case, Israeli military activities in Gaza were not accomplishing any positive goals. True, Palestinians violated the cease fire yesterday by firing three Qassam rockets and again today by firing two more, but they were firing more rockets before. True too that the smuggling of arms into Gaza and the manufacture of rockets will not stop, but it was not stopping anyhow, and nothing that the IDF or Israel could do within reason seemed to make much difference.

Elections in the Netherlands: gains for socialists and nationalists

Despite the tensions with the growing Dutch Muslim community in recent years, which culminated in the murder of cineaste Theo van Gogh in November 2004, this was not a hot topic in last week's elections. Most major parties have agreed on a more rigorous approach on the issue of immigration and integration, and after years of debate and polarization, most of the public had gotten weary of the subject.

Last week's elections dealt with 'classic' issues like job opportunities, social security and health care. This is caused by the painful cuts and reforms in social security by the center-right government of the last 4 years, and the growing number of people who are dependant on health care. But there is also a tendency to turn inwards and to fence ourselves off from the outside world, as exemplified by the Dutch rejection of the European Constitution in 2005.
