Seconds often make the difference between life and death and new technology makes the difference…
Turkey is a member of NATO, something Turkish leaders would do well to remember. I wrote a short and pointed letter to the Turkish Ambassador to the United States telling him Turkey needs to choose a side. It can either choose to come back to the world community that at least tries to achieve peace (even if it often goes about it in confounding, nonsensical ways), or it can ally itself with the extremists and terror supporters.
I urge Turkey to make the right choice, but am not optimistic that it will. The stakes have never been higher, and Turkey should be warned: America and its allies are watching closer than ever.

Although it’s emotionally difficult to see the suffering, helping out makes me happy.
I decided to really understand what Jewish people go through by becoming a Jew.
Why does Obama and other democratic world leaders resist branding the Armenian killings as genocide?
FBI’s undercover agents contacted ORA (Org. for the Resolution of Agunot) pretending to be an agunah
Israel promotes coexistence and peace, providing freedom for all religions on the Temple Mount.
The Jewish vote won’t impact polls as much as it will the coffers of candidates and their Super PACs
Iran stands unopposed by the “international community” and is racing to assert regional dominance.
If some Israeli cops got a Jewish education & learned to love Jews, Israel would be a better place
No where in the world is there the level of intervention by foreign countries as exists in Israel.
The Ravens’ Ray Lewis screamed that violence is never the answer.” Unfortunately, he is wrong.
Obama is the latest incarnation of our ancient enemies who arise every generation with a new face
Why do Jews, then, sometimes feel more intensely about Polish anti-Semitism than they do about German anti-Semitism?
When President Obama spoke last week of the opportunities presented by the Arab Spring, he got a lot right. His calling out of the Arab states was long overdue and dead on.
But he got some big things wrong.
The time has come for us to take the new technology available to terrorists seriously. The United States recently crowned Anwar al-Awlaki the newest “most dangerous terrorist in the world.” And yet an American company, YouTube, has been giving al-Awlaki open access to the world’s largest bully pulpit.
In what country were you born?
If you are a U.S. citizen born in Jerusalem, you’d better not look for the answer on your passport. That line is always left blank.
The decision by President Obama to sell weapons to Saudi Arabia is wrong.
It was leaked last week that the Obama administration was preparing to notify Congress of its intent to sell $60 billion in high tech arms, including F-15’s and military helicopters, to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The facts of the flotilla incident speak for themselves – but only to those who are willing to listen. Unfortunately, albeit predictably, the international community seems to care less about what actually happened and more about that fact that it now has an opportunity to engage in what appears to be a global pastime: kicking Israel.
Let’s remember the facts here. Jerusalem is hardly some far-off outpost. It is the capital of a sovereign nation that happens to be our strongest ally in the Middle East and perhaps the world. And this housing decision was months in the works as part of a transparent process that is followed by dozens and dozens of building proposals each year. Think of it as a decision by a local zoning board. This was hardly war and peace.
Contrary to statements by the White House, the natural growth of Gilo, a popular suburb on the outskirts of Jerusalem, is in no way a political statement or a land grab on the West Bank.
On the anniversary of the tragic events that took place on September 11, 2001, we remembered the lives lost of friends, family and neighbors. We also renewed our resolve to rebuild, to bring to justice those responsible, and to challenge extremism wherever it exists.
