Jews have lived in Iran at least since the days when Cyrus the Great liberated many of them from Babylonian captivity in what’s now Iraq, about 2,700 years ago.
President Trump is determined to avoid – rather than repeat – the mistakes of his predecessors, fending off pressure and threats by rogue regimes, and therefore advancing US interests, law and heritage and this is served by moving the US embassy to Jerusalem.
Civilian handguns are an essential component of Israel’s security apparatus, yet Barkat noted that “only 3 percent of the population carries guns, and those who have them know how to use them.”
Abbas’ thesis is that the Zionist movement worked hand in hand with the Nazis,
Evidence of the high rate-of-return on the annual US investment in Israel, which is erroneously defined as “foreign aid.” Israel is neither foreign to the US, nor is it a supplicant; it has been an unconditional junior partner of the US in the liberty-driven battle against rogue regimes.
The Washington Post—without reason or explanation—sought to impugn the IDF’s motives and obfuscate on what happened
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.
