You Saw it Here First: Morsi’s Call for War on Israel

The JewishPress.com was the first major English language Jewish/Israel news publication to have the story about the video.

My Last Word on Election Day

So my advice is, don't try to outsmart anyone. You will just be shooting yourself in the foot. Vote for the party you want to see lead the country.

Understanding Israel’s ‘Deal System’

While the Israeli media wrongly claimed that the Likud had made an extreme shift to the right in recent primaries, some commentators were correcting in observing the existence of a deal-system. (Part IV in a series about the Likud primaries).

New York Times’ Jerusalem Chief Admits Anti-Israel Bias

Even after the New York Times issued a remarkable correction, the paper's bureau chief claims she was essentially correct in writing that construction in E-1 would cut Judea and Samaria in two.

More Naivete from Obama: Embassy Attacks Arose from ‘Natural’ Protests

Imagine Jews launched massive protests for every anti-Semitic youtube video.

Bennett’s Unholy Alliance with Lapid

Not exactly what Jewish Home voters thought they would get on election day.

The Future Coalition and the Israeli Right

Like Liberman before, Lapid will likely be Netanyahu's major partner as under almost any coalition figuration Yesh Atid can bring down the coalition.

JStreet’s Hagel ‘Victory’ is on American Jewry

Congratulations, JStreet, you won before you even started! Perhaps you can save your breath, energy and George Soros' and god knows who else's money and go home.

No Red Lines: Another US Rejection of Israel’s Security Concerns on Iran

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave an interview stating that the U.S. would not be setting any deadlines for Iran.

Permission to Attack: The Likud-Beitenu’s Ad Last Night

It cannot be claimed it is fair for one party to attack another, but not for the other to attack back...

Mitt, Supporting Palestinian Statehood is NOT Pro-Israel

Mitt Romney seems to have a genuinely friendly view towards Israel, which he has made clear in various public statements and his recent visit to Israel. Yet, in his foreign policy address yesterday, he adopted the position which is at the heart of U.S. pressure on Israel: supporting Palestinian statehood.

The City of ‘East Jerusalem’

East Jerusalem has become code for: where Jews shouldn't be.

What ‘War’ with Iran is Biden Talking About?

Former U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates recently warned that, “The results of an American or Israeli military strike on Iran could, in my view, prove catastrophic, haunting us for generations in that part of the world.” During Thursday's Vice Presidential debate the statement was read to Vice President Joe Biden and Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan  at the start of segment on Iran. What exactly Gates meant by “catastrophic” I’m not sure (Muslim/Middle East resentment towards the U.S.? Lack of access to oil? Increase in global terrorism?), but during the debate, both Biden and debate moderator Martha Raddatz seemed to argue that it meant going to war with Iran.

Prematurely Celebrating Romney’s Victory

Despite Obama’s poor debate performance, Romney’s rising likability numbers and voters saying he would better handle the economy – and two more polls which give him a significant bump since the debate – there is reason to fear that voters will still not vote against the incumbent.

Theory of Palestinian Centrality no Longer Viable

With Muslims attacking American embassies in the Middle East and rioting all over the world over an obscure youtube video, the U.S. State Department and the E.U. can no longer seriously contend that anti-Americanism, anti-Westernism are due to support for Israel or the fact that a Palestinian state has not been established or an Israeli-Palestinian peace accord has been signed.

So You Say You Want a US Style Constitution in Israel…

Let's face it, people here don't vote for representatives. Party bosses and power players do.

Channel 10 Poll: Likud-Beitenu Down to 32; Jewish Home 14; Power for Israel 2

The Channel 10 report included the fact that none of the Likud's district candidates would get in and even MK Carmel Shama could be on the chopping bloc.

No Red Lines: The Prime Minister Strikes Back

The U.S. reiterated its rejection of Israel's call for "clear red lines." Today, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded, saying those "who refuse to put red lines in front of Iran, don't have a moral right to put a red light in front of Israel." Here is the Prime Minister in his own words - responding to a reporter's question about the State Department's position:

So Why are Voters Still Choosing Obama?

Last week's U.S. presidential debate was a victory for Romney on all accounts, especially if one judges by the closing statements, where Obama couldn't muster any specific reason why voters should re-elect him aside from the fact that he was trying really hard as president. Looking at polls on how people view the candidates, I’m beginning to wonder why it is that Obama leads Romney in national polls and whether that is going start to change in a big way.

The UN: That Explains It, They’re All Drunk!

A US diplomat proposed that UN negotiating rooms be 'inebriation-free zones.'

So What Did Obama Call the Benghazi Attack?

Since the debate there's been a lot of analysis as to whether the President designated the attack on the U.S. embassy in Bengahzi, Libya, an act of terrorism. The President indeed used the term "act of terror" the next day but it wasn't clear if he was talking about that attack or 9-11. For the next week administration officials described the attacks as part of a protest-riot against the the U.S. over the "Innocence of Muslims" video which got out of hand.

Donald Trump Endorses Netanyahu (Video)

Trump even works in the Likud's election slogan, "A strong prime minister is a strong Israel."

Correction: How Israel Averted a Syrian Chemical Crisis

Israeli willingness to do whatever it takes to prevent weapons of mass destruction from falling into the wrong hands may be the only thing preventing civil wars or heated rhetoric from becoming mass atrocities.

Danny Ayalon Shows his True Colors
