Endemic Mass Psychosis Strikes Universities

Posted on: June 6th, 2012

InDepthAnalysis

The irrational, obsessive, unbalanced, excessive, fanatical hatred of a nation that characterizes a person like CSU-Northridge Mathematics Professor David Klein is a form of mental illness that attacks and destroys the moral sense found in a normal individual. En masse, it is a mass psychosis. In academia, it is an endemic mass psychosis.

Observations on the Proposed Law on Compensating Palestinian Land Owners

Posted on: June 5th, 2012

InDepthAnalysis

Minister Benny Begin and others who oppose the law argue that it will be voided by the Supreme Court and that the law will damage Israel on the international front. If the Supreme Court indeed voids the law this will no doubt bring praise for Israel from the international community – not condemnation. And rest assured the court will rule on the law in lightning speed.

Eurocrisis: Russia Offers Its Services

Posted on: June 5th, 2012

InDepthAnalysis

Russia undoubtedly has strategic interests when offering financial support to debt-ridden Europe. Many will lose through the eurocrisis, but Russia will not be among them. So far, Brussels has not turned to Moscow for help -- yet. But if the situation deteriorates, that soon might be the case.

Israel to world: Terrorists Aren’t Terrorists

Posted on: June 5th, 2012

InDepthAnalysis

Israel's return of the bodies of 91 Arab terrorists was supposedly a “humanitarian gesture,” which is intended to make the PA more likely to negotiate with Israel. But what it really did was provide a photo-op for the Palestinians to pretend that the terrorists were actually soldiers, and that their actions were warfare and not murder.

Rubin Reports: Egypt’s Presidential Election – Moderate Establishment vs. Totalitarian Revolutionaries

Posted on: June 5th, 2012

InDepthAnalysisRubin Reports

Egypt’s fate, I think, will not be settled by the June 16-17 presidential election. It has already been set by the parliamentary election which has given a large majority to the Islamists as well as the ability to write the constitution. If Ahmad Shafiq defeats the Brotherhood candidate, Muhammad al-Mursi, the only way out would be a Shafiq-army alliance, giving the president — who has no political party and no organized base of support in parliament — some muscle.

Mordechai Kedar: What Drives Turkey?

Posted on: June 4th, 2012

InDepthAnalysisDr. Mordechai Kedar

Turkey, no doubt, is an important regional power, and Israel must weigh its steps carefully when dealing with it, because of the changes that are occurring in the region and in light of the unsolved difficulties with Turkey – the flotilla two years ago and the gas in the future.

Khaled Abu Toameh: Where Are the Moderate Arabs and Palestinians?

Posted on: June 4th, 2012

InDepthAnalysis

The Palestinians have been radicalized to a point where it is almost impossible to talk about peace and coexistence with Israel. For Palestinians, the true heroes are suicide bombers who blew themselves up in cafes and buses, killing innocent civilians. Peace activists, human rights advocates, moderates, journalists and reformers have almost no say and are often denounced as "traitors" and a "fifth column."

Questions Facing the Muslim World

Posted on: June 4th, 2012

InDepthAnalysis

Many parts of the world, such as Korea, China, and India - basically medieval kingdoms fifty or sixty years ago -- are now among the pacesetters of the modern world, both producing, and improving on, existing inventions. The Muslim world, however, often better off than these countries just half a century ago, has remained as it was, or has even, in many instances, deteriorated.

Rubin Reports: Where Did All the Billions of Dollars Given to the Palestinian Authority Go?

Posted on: June 4th, 2012

InDepthAnalysisRubin Reports

The Palestinian Authority has received more aid money per person than anyone else in history and yet the results have been remarkably unimpressive. The Western taxpayers give the money, the PA leaders steal or use the money for political purposes, and the average Palestinian suffers more from this situation than from the largely extinct "Israeli occupation."

Yoram Ettinger: The Westernization of Muslim Demographics

Posted on: June 3rd, 2012

InDepthAnalysis

Anyone suggesting that Jews are doomed to become a minority west of the Jordan River, that there is a demographic machete at the throat of the Jewish State and that the Jewish State must concede Jewish Geography in order to secure Jewish Demography, is either grossly mistaken or outrageously misleading!

The West, Iran, and the ‘Process’ Trap

Posted on: June 3rd, 2012

InDepthAnalysis

Few things ought to be as urgent as keeping Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Yet the West – led from the front by the United States – has fallen into the "peace process" trap that considers talk to be progress and, once a conversation has begun, that there is nothing worse than stopping it: Talk about what you've talked about. Talk about what you won't talk about. Talk about talking again. Talk again. Repeat.

An Airline Losing Its Way

The past decade saw the privatization of El Al and today the airline is more dedicated to keeping public shareholders happy than she is to fulfilling any sort of national mission. A perfect case in point happened recently when a profit-motivated El Al attempted to charge the President of the State of Israel an exorbitant $4,700 to haul a security mandated oxygen tank.

Dr. Kenneth Meshoe, a member of the South African Parliament, president of the African Christian Democratic Party, and pastor of a South African Church has been an important counterweight to the disparagers of Israel. He describes those who promulgate the lie of Israel-as-apartheid as ignorant individuals who are not aware of, or who deliberately disregard, the true nature of the negative impact of apartheid on black South Africans.

Mordechai Kedar: Engulfed by Fear

Posted on: May 31st, 2012

InDepthAnalysisDr. Mordechai Kedar

The states of the Arabian Peninsula feel increasingly dependent on the US and the West to safeguard their independence and their political and economic maneuverability, but the West seems tired and exhausted, and its leadership - especially the current resident in the White House, who is heavily influenced by the approaching elections - lacks backbone and has no ability to stop the Iranians from galloping towards regional hegemony.

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach: An Open Letter to Congressmen Steve Rothman and Bill Pascrell

Posted on: May 30th, 2012

InDepthColumnsAmerica's Rabbi / Shmuley Boteach

Americans are sick and tired of rancorous, scorched-earth politics, which has given Congress a nine percent approval rating. Let’s show America that politics is an honorable profession, a noble calling, filled with people who put values, country, and integrity first. Let’s start winning people back to the political theater by demonstrating that politics are inspiring rather than depressing, ennobling rather than corrupting, and harmonious rather than rancorous.

Muslim Brotherhood Plotting To Take Over Jordan?

Posted on: May 30th, 2012

InDepthAnalysis

Today, most of the anti-regime demonstrations throughout the kingdom are being initiated and led by Muslim Brotherhood supporters whose goal is to turn Jordan into an Islamic republic. Many Arabs feel that President Barack Obama's endorsement of the Muslim Brotherhood has emboldened the Islamists and increased their appetite to drive moderate and secular rulers out of the Arab world.
