Rabbi Shmuley: A Wedding In Israel, in Defiance of Hamas’ Rockets

TEL AVIV, Israel – We arrive early Thursday morning for our son Yosef’s wedding in Israel. He is a soldier in an elite combat unit, but he has been given a leave of absence for his wedding.

Rabbi Shmuley: The Saudi Crown Prince’s Extraordinary Gesture to Israel

A future Saudi king who is speaking of Israel’s right to exist, who is beginning to allow flights to Israel to fly over his territory, who is condemning the funding of terror groups like Hamas and the Muslim brotherhood, and who is speaking openly of Jews living in his land, deserves to be taken seriously and deserves to be engaged.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman came to Washington to meet President Donald Trump last week, and was lauded for many of the reforms he is undertaking in Saudi Arabia.
