Dr. Mitchell Bard's latest on the Huffington Post: 
The rain of rockets from Gaza has only stiffened the resistance of the Israeli public and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to territorial compromise on the West Bank. And, one rocket, in particular, may have killed the two-state solution altogether....

Today is the seventieth anniversary of D-Day, when the Allied forces landed at Normandy, France with the intention of liberating Europe from the Axis powers. The memory of the soldiers who fought and died for freedom lives on today.

Although Yom Ha'azmaut was marked last week, May 14th in the secular calendar is the day that the British Mandate expired and David Ben-Gurion officially signed the document declaring the State of Israel's independence. 66 years later, Israel is still going strong.

AICE hopes that everyone had a fantastic Passover. We are now five days into the Counting of the Omer: the countdown between the second night of Passover and Shavu'ot. This is to remind us of the link between Passover, which commemorates the Exodus, and Shavu'ot, which commemorates the giving of the Torah. We are reminded that redemption from slavery was not complete until then.

Some people like Jimmy Carter have said the recent reconciliation agreement between Hamas and Fatah improves the chances for peace between Israel and the Palestinians. Our latest Myths and Facts video, narrated by Mad Men's Stephen Mendel, would beg to differ:

My name is Kevin Cronin and I am from cork in Ireland and i would like to ask a question which pains me to ask it but i need to. I want to know why when the Nazis came to collect people in their trucks and things like that ... why people didn't put up a resistance when they were being forced in to the trucks.  My best friend is Jewish and i asked him this before but he did not know. I can't understand this in my head at all, it is something i cannot fathom in my mind. or is this something that is a complete myth that people did actually refuse and put up a resistance .
