What’s more important to the US, another Arab state within Israel’s current borders or the Iranian nuclear threat? The answer is in expected US arms to Israel. Despite budget cuts, it will increase.
Russia is now Iran’s spokesman. It says Iran is ready to stop enriching 20 % uranium. The West, of course, must respond by lifting sanctions, while Rohani says Iran won’t all halt all enrichment.

Knee-jerk leftists still are alive and sick. An equally sick mind posted on Yair Lapid’s Facebook page a picture of him dressed as Hitler. A PR agent immediately linked the fake posting with “the black days before the murder” of Rabin
The tombstone of the late New York City Mayor Ed Koch shows his year of birth as 1942 and not 1924, due to what the engraver said was a “human error” that he will correct in the next three weeks. Koch was so concerned about his tombstone that he worked with a professional for eight [...]

There is no alternative to a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict, Bill Clinton said at an event to honor Israeli President Shimon Peres.

“There is a small group of evil conspirators who want to generate a chain of hatred and violence between Arabs and Jews in our country.”
The Rabbinical Council of America on Monday sent Rabbi David Stav, a Religious Zionist candidate for the post of Israel’s Chief Rabbi, a letter of encouragement, stating the organization’s full support: To the Honorable Rabbi David Stav Shlit’a, Rabbi of the town of Shoham, Chairman of the Rabbinical Organization Tzohar, the Rabbi of the Ezra [...]
Tied up and raped at knifepoint, Linor Abargil was able to escape, to press charges, to find other victims of the same rapist, and make a documentary about how to speak out. Oh, and she was crowned “Miss World” just seven weeks after being raped.
I had been curious about Orthodox Union’s annual Jewish Communities Fair, and so while on tour in America, I joined the hungry Modern-Orthodox masses as they searched for new communities and a new life in far flung American locales – but not in Israel
No one in Boston gave me dirty looks. Nobody implied I was the source of all evil, somehow nefariously involved in the terrorism that had just struck. My Jewish genes expect to be blamed when things go wrong for the gentiles, but the average American – certainly the Bostonians that I met – looked right past my decidedly ethnic Middle Eastern appearance.
I told her that the goal of bombers was to have those shock waves go into our body and cause damage to our internal organs. But if we can take that shock wave and let it pass through us and change that blast energy into something positive – so that the energy of the blast is converted through our bodies into a healing energy and into a building energy – then we will have thwarted the efforts of the bomber.
In that one moment I though of gratitude: I am so thankful to you, fallen tzanchan, fallen Jew, fallen brother. Without you my parents would have had no place to run to from the choke hold of the Soviet Union, without you Jews of the world would never have shelter, and without you, I would not stand here today, wearing this uniform with a red beret that did not yet belong to me.
I am a proud graduate of the Cardozo School of Law, and I support the right of the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution to bestow the International Advocate for Peace Award upon former US president Jimmy Carter. And I do not agree with the so-called “Coalition of Concerned Cardozo Alumni” who asked Cardozo Alumni to “to condition any continued support of Cardozo, be it financial or otherwise, on the cancellation of this event” (although I respect their efforts). Student protest is the way to go.
