Former Head of IDF Intelligence Research Unit, Yossi Kuperwasser, says that Iran is seeking alternative ways to fight Israel. “Sending a drone into Israel was an aggressive gamble that failed”
Reflecting on his first year in office in an interview President Trump said that his official recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was the pinnacle of his presidency so far.
Realizing the irrelevance of the Palestinian issue to the 1,400 year old endemic Mid-East turbulence, in general, and the eruption of the Arab Tsunami which has engulfed the Middle East since 2010, in particular, Trump concluded that the Palestinian issue represents a Red Herring, dwarfed by “major league” Middle East challenges/threats to regional and US interests
Problems not addressed don't go away--they tend to get worse.
The confidence of US allies in the Middle East – facing lethal threats internally and externally - was undermined by President Obama’s worldview but has been enhanced by President Trump’s State of the Union,
Happy Tu Bishvat!
Eleanor Roosevelt through her life is a glorious example of meliorism--tikkun olam-- in action. Her decisions seem to be guided by a meloristic attitude illustrated in her efforts to rescue Jewish children from the Nazis, she leveled resourcefully attuned to reality in achieving results.
2 Imams from around America called from their respective pulpits for the murder of Jews. Where is the national outcry?
Abbas’s stupidity knows no bounds. He claimed that Palestinian Arabs have been living in the holy land for the past 6000 years.That’s pretty impressive for a group that didn’t arrive in the land of Israel until about 1400 years ago, even by the admission of Arabs themselves.
Host on official PA radio: Israel is "cancerous entity... Everyone knows [the Jews] have no right to this land." Fatah official: Fatah "has never recognized Israel"
As long as the mainstream media have rumors of geniuses and *********to combat, they may not be able to mount a concerted, thematic counter-effort against Trump’s actual policy moves.
"The rubbish of the American president isn't worth the urine of one Jerusalem child" (Abbas' advisor)
Apparently, Trump does not embrace the myth of the Palestinian issue as – supposedly - a core cause of regional instability, a crown-jewel of Arab policy-makers, nor the crux of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
BDS pushes soundbites that suggest the movement takes no position on whether Israel would exist in a post BDS universe. This vagueness is employed to navigate the branding minefield that openly calling for Israel’s destruction would cross.
A report is also circulating that a top member of the clerical council in Qom has expressed support for the popular protesters. That doesn’t mean anything specific is going to be conceded to the protesters. But it does mean, at the least, that at least some on the council see a need to appease the people
The demonstrations presently rocking Iran are the most widespread demonstrations in Iran since the suppression of the protests that followed Ahmadinejad’s reelection as president in 2009
Israel's economy had a robust 2017 and next year looks even brighter!
The Declaration's non-implementation notwithstanding, Talaat's original statement was extraordinary in two key respects concerning the Jews of then Palestine: the religious and the national.
‘Alternativity’ is an appalling piece of anti-Israel propaganda, all the more so because it was packaged as a Nativity Play at Christmas performed by children. (Part 1)

The U.N.’s Beirut-based agency of 18 Arab states published a report accusing Israel of “Apartheid.” In response, UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer took the floor...
Fascinating and terrifying description of where jihad and neo-Nazism meet.
"#Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel no matter how many times Trump says it," wrote political activist Linda Sarsour, who has argued Zionists can't be feminists and that "nothing is creepier than Zionism. "He doesn't speak for me."
The reaction of the Palestinians to Pres. Trump's announcement recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is not to be read on an empty stomach.
If there is any change to the status quo, let the blame lie at the hands of President Obama for his cowardly decision to wait until he was a lame-duck president to get even with PM Netanyahu. Pres. Trump deserves praise for restoring balance in negotiations with Israel and the Palestinians.
