Trump’s Twitter Habits Are Affecting How Local Politicians Behave Online

IMEU Video: Netanyahu Parters With Israel’s Extremist Right

Israeli society continues its downward spiral into extremism.

‘Tibi, Not Bibi’: The Palestinian Who Stood up to Pence on Why He Could Be the Region’s Next Leader

Israel's Central Bureau of Statistics revealed a figure on Monday that will concern the country's nationalistic right wing: As many Muslims (6.5 million) now live alongside Jews (6.44 million) between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean Sea.

Trump Delivers a Death Blow to the Two-State Solution
