This past Friday night, instead of having my usual guests
for a festive Friday night dinner in my home, I had three compassionate Los
Angeles Police Department officers standing in my kitchen explaining the
difference between a “hate crime” and a “hate incident.” My family was the
victim of the latter.
We were walking home in Los Angeles after a Friday night
dinner at a friend’s house, dressed nicely for Shabbat, easily identifiable as
a Jewish family. We waited for a light to change on a corner of a major
intersection when a black Mercedes SUV pulled up alongside us. Four
Middle-Eastern men in their 20s were in the car. The one in the back rolled
down his window and yelled, “Free Palestine!”
I immediately turned to face them, knowing I was in
danger, remembering the rabbi who was gunned down in Miami on his way to
synagogue. This was the beginning of either a hate crime or a hate incident,
but either way, hate was coming our way. We all know too well that “Free
Palestine” means free Palestine from every Jew. As they chant “Free Palestine,
from the river to the sea,” that doesn’t mean they want a two-state solution —
they want Hitler’s Final Solution and a Jew-free Middle East.
Then this Arab young man opened the car door, stepped
onto the street and yelled at me, my wife and four young children: “I hope your
children die! Just like you are killing children in Gaza!”

concept of a "two-state solution," carving an invented state of
Palestine from the tiny body of Israel and hopefully expecting the two
resulting entities to live in harmony is, at best, a "chimera."
Worse, it is a "humiliating, dangerous nightmare"; and worst of all,
it spells the end of Israel.

Israeli sovereignty-- over the west bank of the Jordan River: the area

“Judea” (יהודה) is the origin of the term “Jew”
(יהודי). Its Hebrew spelling combines one of God’s names: Jehova (יהוה)
and one of God’s acronyms: ד'. Judea and Samaria are the cradle of
Jewish history, religion, culture, holidays, ethos, language and
yearnings. The official name of the area was "Judea and Samaria" from
Biblical times until April 1950, when Jordan occupied/annexed the area,
renaming it "West Bank," as distinguished from the east bank of the
Jordan River. Judea and Samaria was the official name used by the
1922-1948 British Mandate of Palestine, as well as by the U.N.
