A Nuclear Iran: Get Used to It

Two days before he spoke, Rouhani reviewed a missile transports parade in Teheran with the slogans “Death to America” and “Israel should cease to exist.”

Finding the Culprit: The Race to be Wrong

Does the viciously random nature of the bombing give a clue to the motive?

The President Sends a Message of Submission

The Western media are not the only ones who fail to see the symbolism of raising al-Qaeda’s banner on 9/11. Our President missed it as well.

Why was the IDF (and Karsenty) Abandoned in the Al Dura Affair?

Why didn't then Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz and then Prime Minister Ehud Barak demand that all the footage shot by France 2 on that day be placed at Israel’s disposal to do a proper investigation?

Why I am important

Not a peep was heard a few months ago when Israel announced that it would build housing for Arabs in the same area.

In Praise of Nationalism

If we compare Western and Islamic cultures, we find that universalist attitudes are common in the former and rare in the latter.

Cal. Univ. Pro-Israel Professor Harassed and Defamed

In the snake pit of academia, where unfashionable explicit Jew-hatred has morphed into enthusiastic and widespread over-the-top anti-Zionism, Professor Tammi Rossman-Benjamin stands out.

The NY Times: Dishonest, Defamatory and Deliberate

You wouldn’t make donations to Hezballah, right? Then don’t buy the Times.

Massacring the Truth

The so-called “Jenin Massacre” of 2002 — a massacre that never happened — is emblematic of the way the truth is violated, over and over in this conflict. The most shocking aspect of the affair, for me, was the cynical way in which many were comfortable with inverting reality for ideological reasons.

Barak and Barack

An interview with Israel’s Defense Minister Ehud Barak — thinly disguised as “the decision-maker” created a sensation in early August, when he suggested that an Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear facilities was imminent. Barak explained that Israel could not depend on an American commitment to destroy the program in the future, even if it were made today. Suddenly, last week, Barak began to sing a different tune.

When does the 'Unbreakable Bond' become an abusive relationship?

Win Friends and Influence People with Emotional Appeals

People are not influenced by rational argument, but rather by emotion, so make your appeals powerful and emotional.

Thoughts on Nelson Mandela and Israel

Peres chose the uranium because Israel needed it to survive.

Lessons from the Latest Tragedy

When will the State of Israel decide the Palestinian Arabs are a hostile enemy and treat them as such?

A Very Bad Weekend

It looks from here like a really bad weekend in Israel. Some 40-odd rockets were fired from Gaza at southern Israel within 48 hours,...

Who’s the Real Illiterate?

Unfortunately, some people are still in the dark about the significance of this, and similar acts.

Stay off the Slippery Slope

A policy of appeasing the US and EU can only aid the Arabs in their project to weaken Israel and slice away at it, bit by bit.

Will Obama Make Israel “an Offer it Can’t Refuse”?

When push comes to shove, today’s liberals, even “strong supporters of Israel” like Chuck Schumer, are Obama supporters first.

Syria, Iran and US Policy — What It Means for Israel

The bad news is that Assad’s Syria is a pipeline of all kinds of support from Iran to Hizbollah.

Ceasefire a Poor Outcome for Israel

Today, the IDF announced that it had “accomplished its pre-determined objectives for Operation Pillar of Defense, and has inflicted severe damage to Hamas and its military capabilities.” It is embarrassing to read this statement.

The European Problem with Zionism

Yes, Israel affords civil rights and freedom of worship to its many minorities; but it makes no attempt to deny that there is one specific people, one particular narrative, one religion to which is it most centrally committed. The State of Israel is, to paraphrase Lincoln, “by the Jews, of the Jews and for the Jews.” How could those who labored to create the European Union not consider the very idea of a Jewish state anathema?

Peace Process is Gone, But the Pressure Remains

The thugs on the ground in Europe and the Obama Administration now simply want to impose the UN’s diktat on Israel.

Democratic Platform Tilts Against Israel: Side by Side Comparison to 2008, 2004

My pro-Obama friends tell me that nothing’s changed, that this administration is as pro-Israel as any previous one, Democratic or Republican, and I needn’t fear that a reelected President Obama will punish Israel. With all due respect, they are full of it.

Barry Rubin, Scholar and Friend

This is not a post that I wanted to write, though I knew it was coming.

Weinberger Gave Judge Wrong Information Resulting in Pollard’s Life Sentence
