The Opposition (or Lack thereof) to Hagel

18 Shevat 5773 – January 28, 2013
Odd that CUFI is out there swinging and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee is silent.

You’re in the New Army Now

Our military has to become less American and more European, less imperial and more multilateral.

How the Palestinians Tried to Scare Israeli Voters

It does not really matter who is in power in Israel: no Palestinian leader has a mandate to make any concessions to Israel, let alone sign a peace treaty.

Daniel Pipes: West Must Oppose Islamism (Video)

17 Shevat 5773 – January 27, 2013
Middle East expert Daniel Pipes appeared on the 'Cross Talk' program to argue that the West should use its influence to oppose Islamism instead of supporting it.

Shabbos in Davos

While the meal featured heads of state, Nobel laureates and people of world renown, it had a homely feeling where no one in particular was made to feel more important than the next person.

The Truth About Benghazi Makes a Difference (Video)

14 Shevat 5773 – January 24, 2013
It makes a difference that we have people in government who can show why and what happened in Benghazi, in Cairo and across the region.

Interpreting the Signs in Northern Jerusalem

Amid an intense Israeli election campaign in which "keeping Jerusalem united" figured prominent as a key issue, the question continues to crop up: Is Jerusalem already being divided?

Pillar of Defense: Separating Appearance from Reality

When terrorists represent populations that enthusiastically support their attacks, responsibility for ensuing counter-terrorist harm must lie with the criminals.

Strangers in their Own Land

Israel’s forced Evacuation/Compensation law for Jews was considered to be legitimate, but when I propose that the same principle be applied for Arabs, it is derided as unrealistic.

When Bibi Did Teshuvah

I’m writing this on the day before Israelis vote for our Knesset, but one thing I can presume is that unless a cow is seen jumping over our ten-day-old new moon, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be asked by Israel’s president, Shimon Peres, to form the next government.

Conservative movements and parties cannibalize themselves.

Why Bibi is Not Intimidated by Obama

After Pillar of Defense: Separating Appearance from Reality

6 Shevat 5773 – January 16, 2013
Now that the dust has settled in Gaza following Israel’s Pillar of Defense operation, it is easy yet again to feel sorry for the Palestinians. After all, as anyone already knows who clings desperately to The New York Times, the still-lingering images are so evidently palpable and painful. And the Arab suffering – the grievous suffering.

The Investor’s Guide To Israel’s Political Market (Conclusion)

When people thought that Avigdor Lieberman would someday be prime minister, I explained that Yisrael Beiteinu would disappear from the political map. The reason is that, like Kadima, the former foreign minister’s party is about a person, not a party.
