Did you hear what Obama is offering?
F-35 Stealth Bombers.
Are you serious?
Have you forgotten that Israel is under an existential threat, that our neighbors seek to destroy us?
Iran, of course.
What do you think, that Israel can do whatever it wants? We have international pressure. Luckily, the Americans still stand by our side.
They will stop selling us spare parts for the planes.
Yes. That is what the experts say. We have not bombed Iran because if we do, the Americans will not sell us the spare parts for their fighter jets.
Just a minute. Are you proposing that we throw all the American jets in the garbage?
And how will you fight, with sticks and stones?
Israel can produce a platform for a stealth bomber, together with the aeronautics industries of other nations that are eager for this type of partnership. Alternately, Israel can produce the platform itself, as it did with the Lavi project. What is certain is that the F-35 deal is leading us in the opposite direction: More dependence on American weapons is another obstacle in the face of Israeli weapons production, and most important of all another obstacle in the face of our ability to defend ourselves from the most serious existential threats that we face.

No mutual clash between parties, it was Jews repeatedly attacked by Arabs, not the other way around.
Israel would love to be in the coalition,but it’s never going to happen, because, in the end, most of America’s allies would walk away if Israel were on board officially.
Why has his death been treated by some as an invitation for an emotional “autopsy”?
Strategy? For the longest time Obama couldn’t be bothered to have one against a sworn enemy.
Seventeen visual skills are needed for success in school, sports, and everyday life.
We started The Jewish Press. Arnie was an integral part of the paper.
Fear alone is substantial; without fusing it to beauty, fear doesn’t reach its highest potential.
Fortunate are we to have Rosh Hashanah for repentance, a shofar to awaken heavenly mercy.
Arab leaders who want the US to stop Islamic State are afraid of being dubbed traitors and US agents
National Lawyers Guild:Sworn enemy of Israel & the legal arm of Palestinian terrorism since the ’70s
A little less than 10 percent of eligible Democratic voters came out on primary day, which translates into Mr. Cuomo having received the support of 6.2 percent of registered Democrats.
The reality, though, is that the Israeli “war crimes” scenario will likely be played out among highly partisan UN agencies, NGOs, and perhaps even the International Criminal Court.
We did not win the war in Gaza because we are still captive to the concept of the 2 state solution.
Israel is our land, not theirs – Gaza included. No talk of the 2state solution; 1 state for 1 people
If this is how we play the game, we will lose. By that I mean we will lose everything.
We take US “aid” for psychological reasons-if we have an allowance, that means we have a father.
All the tactical problems have solutions. The real problem is not with the enemy; it is with us.
Why couldn’t the artillery barrage have been implemented before the soldiers went into that hell?
