As Purim approaches, thousands of Israeli children and families grapple with poverty
Both these moves were recommended more than a year and a half ago by Col. (ret.) Moti Yogev, former Gaza Division commander, and for almost two years by Yuval Diskin, director of Israel’s Shin Bet security service.
Anything less than this will fail. In 2006, Israel launched an offensive against Hizbullah in Lebanon but left it intact as a fighting force and did nothing about the supplier and deliverer of its weaponry – Syria.
Because of that, Hizbullah is stronger today than it was in 2006 and has more missiles pointed at Israel than was the case before the Israeli offensive. Failure to remove Hamas from northern Gaza and seal Gaza’s southern border will produce a similar result.

Stalin’s plan for the Soviet’s “final solution of the Jewish question” was totally assimilating them
Many Jews oppose the speech fearing it will further erode relations between Israel & US. I disagree.

For 6 years Obama’s made concessions to Iran without preventing it from becoming a nuclear power
In this morally unjust, tactically unwise, strategically harmful, militarily hazardous and life-endangering unilateral concession, we see the erosion of Israeli will.
President Obama spent his first term pushing from power longstanding Arab allies in Egypt and Tunisia, seeking to engage the now blood-soaked Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, pulling his punches against Iran’s nuclear program, and putting “daylight” between his administration and Israel.
The United Nations General Assembly’s vote to make “Palestine” a “non-member state” of the UN has done no less than legitimize the two Palestinian regimes that promote terrorism and Israel’s destruction. How can the world claim to be fighting terrorism when it has just declared that two terrorist regimes should enjoy sovereignty?
A recent news item shed piercing light on the reason for the intractability of the Arab war on Israel. The well-known 1970s disco group Boney M, invited by the Palestine International Festival to give a concert in Palestinian Authority-controlled Ramallah, was pressured to drop performing one of its signature hit songs, “Rivers of Babylon.”
Recent polls show that Americans, American Jews and Israelis all disapprove of President Obama’s policies toward Israel. One reason for the disapproval that emerges in these polls is that the Obama administration pressures and criticizes Israel, while giving Mahmoud Abbas’s Palestinian Authority a free pass.
