Kerry reassures the Gulf States, who are gouging him for more arms and to force Israel out of Judea and Samaria.
Oren spilled the beans on Obama one week before his new book is released and four months after he dumped Netanyahu in the election campaign.
The Obama administration is preparing to knife Israel in the back by forcing it to accept concessions on land and security to keep the Palestinian Authority happy.
The political “center” always warps the memory of Rabin with its “peace is made with enemies” agenda, but when Peres spouts the "status quo can’t continue," he can't see it does not exist.
The IDF released a video Wednesday showing how it blew up a terror tunnel reaching Israel. The problem is there are hundreds of others waiting to be found and blown up before terrorists blow up Israelis.
The US is darned lucky. It deserves worse terror than the Boston bombing. And the root cause is the US backing Israel. Is that Iran talking? No. Just Richard Falk, the UN’s great god of human rights.
We Jews know a terrorist when we see one. Surely we don't need the elegant refinements of international law to help us distinguish a suicide bomber from a freedom fighter. If it looks like a duck Nothing could possibly be easier to understand.
In the months prior to Operation Iraqi Freedom, the Bush Administration grappled with the dilemma of determining when enough was enough and military force had to take over where UN inspections left off. In a revealing interview in February, Secretary of State Powell gave us a window into his and the President's thinking. Here is Secretary Powell's response to Ted Koppel's question about how much more time would be appropriate to give Hans Blix and his inspectors:
As we and others have opined, the inclusion of Arab states that continue to harbor terrorist cells in the anti-terrorism coalition is seriously undermining the effort by signalling a political business as usual modus operandi. We have been equally critical of signs that the Bush Administration is agreeing to certain demands of Arab states in general in order to keep them in the coalition. Primary among the concessions was the recent public support expressed by President Bush for the establishment of a Palestinian state. Plainly, the Arab states think they are finally onto something in their effort to have the United States cut Israel loose. But the snickering that this has doubtless engendered seems about to turn into outright mockery if it hasn't already done so.
The word circulating around usually well-informed parts of town is that President Bush will be appointing Mayor Giuliani to a very prominent position connected with the war against terrorism. Director of the CIA and Director of Homeland Security are the two posts most often mentioned. Because the Bush Administration is fast losing points in the polls and the confidence of the American public seems to be waning, we don't regard this as mere speculation.
In principle, we disagree with the notion of U.S. public support for a Palestinian state. The record is clear that, whatever Yasir Arafat and his crowd may claim to the Bush Administration, the Palestinians have no present intention of living as a peaceful neighbor with Israel.
Although Prime Minister Sharon's "appeasement" analogy was not exactly apt ? President Bush is a proven friend of the Jewish State and is certainly no fainthearted Neville Chamberlain, nor is Israel a defenseless Czechoslovakia ? he did succeed in making an important point. There is no gainsaying that the task before us in seeking to uproot terrorism around the world does not lend itself to a quick solution. Indeed, everyone in the Administration, from Mr. Bush on down, continues to caution that we are in for a long haul.
