Israelis Risk Flying Through Enemy Countries To Save a Buck

7 Adar 5772 – March 1, 2012
In recent years, Israelis have been choosing to fly to the Far East through Arab states which do not recognize the State of Israel, according to Israel Channel 2 News. Israel's Foreign Office says that those enemy countries prohibit the entry of Israelis – but Israeli passengers report no special problem at those stops, and they get to save as much as $500 per ticket.

Rabbi Rosen: Ahmadinejad Is Amalek and We Must Destroy Him

Once we recognize that the enemy is not acting against us based on rational reasons, but out of a pathological hatred, it is our duty to act on our conclusion and strike at the enemy, disregarding world opinion.

What is the Muslim Brotherhood?

5 Adar 5772 – February 28, 2012
The Muslim Brotherhood's logo exhibits a Qur'an, with two swords underneath; below that, the Arabic word for "prepare" -- from Quranic verse 8:60: "Prepare against them [the enemy] whatever you are able of power and horses by which you may strike terror into the [hearts of] the enemy, of Allah, and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows." The Brotherhood's motto, only available in Arabic is - "Allah is our objective; the Quran is our law, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death in the way of Allah is our highest objective."

29 Shevat 5772 – February 21, 2012
It turns out the FBI is using training materials that are inaccurate and offensive to Muslims. So the bureau's chief told an assembly of Muslim organizations about the removal of about 1 percent of the total number of training documents produced by the FBI. Except it also turns out that some of the folks Mueller assembled were not themselves so inoffensive…

Will Israel Ever Get Serious About Treason?

27 Heshvan 5772 – November 23, 2011
Earlier this year Israel passed a law that would strip Israelis of their citizenship if convicted of espionage or treason. Condemned for this by countries all over the world, almost all of whom have far harsher anti-treason laws than Israel, the Israeli government has yet to apply the law to anyone.

Why Don’t Israelis Revolt?

5 Heshvan 5772 – November 2, 2011
The Middle East is ablaze with political revolution. Tunisia, Yemen, Egypt, Libya, Syria – the list of countries keeps growing. All is quiet, however, on the Israeli front. The question is: Why?

Declaring ‘Palestine’ In The United Nations: Still-Hidden Risks of Mega Terror And Nuclear War

8 Elul 5771 – September 7, 2011
Declaring Palestine. It is a core issue for Israel that has come up in my columns before. But now, the enemy's operational tactics have been changed and fine-tuned. This month, Palestinian Authority leaders will seek formal creation of their independent state via the "good offices" of the United Nations.

After Fatah-Hamas Reconciliation The Endless Futility Of Israel’s ‘Peace Process’ (Fourth Of Five Parts)

3 Av 5771 – August 3, 2011
Israel's persisting legal obligation to abrogate the Oslo Accords, as we have seen, stemmed from certain peremptory expectations of international law. Israel, however, also has substantial rights of abrogation here that bind its behavior apart from any such expectations. These particular rights derive from the basic doctrine of Rebus sic stantibus.

Facing A ‘New Middle East’: Core Recommendation For Israel’s Strategic Future (Conclusion)

7 Iyyar 5771 – May 11, 2011
IDF planners working on an improved strategic paradigm will need to understand the following: Removing the bomb from Israel's "basement" could enhance Israel's nuclear deterrent to the extent that it would enlarge enemy perceptions of secure and capable Israeli nuclear forces. Such a calculated end to deliberate ambiguity could also underscore Israel's willingness to use these nuclear forces in reprisal for certain enemy first-strike and retaliatory attacks. From the standpoint of successful Israeli nuclear deterrence, IDF planners must proceed on the assumption that perceived willingness is always just as important as perceived capability. This, again, may bring to mind the counter intuitively presumed advantages for Israel of sometimes appearing less than fully rational.

Facing A ‘New Middle East’: Core Recommendation For Israel’s Strategic Future (Part IV)

30 Nisan 5771 – May 4, 2011
The presence of any force multiplier may create synergy. Again, in the matter of Israel, we must acknowledge the antecedent "geometry of chaos." Understanding this more fully, IDF fighting units could conceivably become more effective than the mere sum of their respective parts.

Facing A ‘New Middle East’: Core Recommendation For Israel’s Strategic Future (Part III)

24 Nisan 5771 – April 28, 2011
By its improved use of correlation of forces thinking, Israel will need to seize every available operational initiative, including certain appropriate intelligence and counterintelligence functions, to best influence and control each enemy's particular matrix of expectations. This is a tall policy order, especially as these multiple enemies will include both state and sub-state adversaries, often with substantial and subtle interactions between them. Moreover, in an age of chemical, biological and even nuclear weapons, the consequences of certain IDF planning failures could be literally intolerable.

Facing A ‘New Middle East’: Core Recommendation For Israel’s Strategic Future (Part II)

14 Nisan 5771 – April 18, 2011
Any chaotic disintegration of the world system wouldfundamentally transform the Israeli system. Again, recalling the remarkable Swiss playwright, such a transformation could ultimately involve total or near-total destruction. In anticipation, Israel will have to orient its strategic planning to an assortment of worst-case prospects, thus focusing much more deliberately on a wide range of primarily self-help security options. This point simply cannot be overstated.

Eight Years Of Unheeded ‘Daniel’ Warnings About Iran: What Happens Next? (Part VII)

24 Adar II 5771 – March 30, 2011
Nuclear deterrence, ambiguous or partially disclosed, is essential to Israel's physical survival. If, for whatever reason, Israel should fail to prevent enemy state nuclearization, it will have to refashion its nuclear deterrent to conform to vastly more dangerous regional and world conditions. But even if this should require purposeful disclosure of its nuclear assets and doctrine, such revelation would have to be limited solely to what would be needed to convince Israel's enemies of both its capacity and its resolve.

Eight Years Of Unheeded ‘Daniel’ Warnings About Iran What Happens Next? (Part VI)

17 Adar II 5771 – March 23, 2011
Project Daniel understood that international law has long allowed for states to initiate forceful defensive measures when there exists "imminent danger" of aggression. This rule of anticipatory self-defense was expanded and reinforced by then-President George W. Bush's issuance of The National Security Strategy of the United States of America. Released on September 20,2002, this document asserted, inter alia, that traditional concepts of deterrence would not work against an enemy "whose avowed tactics are wanton destruction and the targeting of innocents...." As Israel is substantially less defensible and more vulnerable than the United States, its particular right to resort to anticipatory self-defense under threat of readily identifiable existential harms is beyond legal question.
