Israel’s often radically anti-Zionist peace movement is today an “anachronism that no longer has realistic answers to Israel’s problems,” Commentary magazine has noted, something exemplified by the Parents Circle—Family Forum (PCFF).

This initial supporter of Israel’s 2006 war with Lebanon’s Hezbollah, in which his son fell fighting in the IDF, has noted that Israelis “need to be strong militarily,” for “Israel is not wanted in the Middle...
