The Canada Factor: Policies for a Stronger Continent

30 Tishri 5773 – October 15, 2012
Building U.S.-Canada relations is more urgent than ever, both economically and in foreign affairs.

While Canada has depended upon the U.S. historically as the stronger military might, it has, under a Conservative Government, demonstrated global leadership in economic policy and foreign affairs. Given the rise of economic superpowers such as China and India, and the challenges from our enemies, such as Islamists, a strong foreign policy and a functional economy are key.

From the Left or Right, Totalitarianism Must Not Be Excused

After Abbas: The End of the PLO’s Old-Guard Monopoly

18 Tishri 5773 – October 3, 2012
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas apparently believes that the Palestinians would not be able to survive for one day without him. This must be why whenever he faces criticism from Palestinians, Abbas resorts to his old-new threat to resign. Abbas is convinced that if he steps down -- as his critics and a growing number of Palestinians are demanding -- the Palestinian Authority will collapse and his people will face a new "nakba" [catastrophe]. But the truth is that the Palestinians would be better off in the post-Abbas era.

The Palestinian Authority’s Policy of Duplicity

14 Tishri 5773 – September 30, 2012

The US and Europe’s “Oneness” Integration Project

12 Tishri 5773 – September 28, 2012
The United States did not jump into a tiger den in the Bronx Zoo. That would have been fairly sane compared to its leap into Libya. With the Arab Spring, the tigers were freed and men like Christopher Stevens jumped inside. The bloody marks on the walls of the Benghazi consulate are a grim reminder of what tigers eventually do to the men who move into their dens.

From the US to the UK, the Left Delegitimizes any Criticism

4 Tishri 5773 – September 19, 2012

28 Elul 5772 – September 14, 2012
