Questions Outnumber Answers on Downed Drone, for Now

22 Tishri 5773 – October 7, 2012
Questions abound as the IDF released scant information about the drone which entered Israeli airspace. News agencies add additional minor details but the large questions remain unanswered for the moment. China's Xinhua news service says the unidentified drone flew over settlements and military bases in southern Israel briefly before being brought down by IDF fire over an open unpopulated area. It was spotted entering Israel's airspace from the Mediterranean sea heading from the west to the east. But there is no word on where the UAV originated.

Israel Should Pre-empt Hizbollah Now

11 Tishri 5773 – September 27, 2012
As Israel comes closer to a confrontation with Iran, we should note that Iran’s primary strategy is unlikely to be direct conflict with Israel.

26 Elul 5772 – September 13, 2012
The rocket attacks from Gaza, the terrorist attack in Sinai which was stopped by the IDF from coming into Israel, all stem from the change in the balance of power since Mubarak's ouster. Since then, not only have terror groups in Gaza been strengthened, but the Sinai has become a training and smuggling base for Gaza terror organizations and others, including Hezbollah, according to reports the IDF has been receiving since February 2011. The Egyptians, under Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, have refused to take responsibility for their sovereign territory.

Mordechai Kedar: The Syrian Crisis Spills Over into Lebanon

28 Iyyar 5772 – May 20, 2012
From the tragedy of Tripoli and Lebanon we can draw several conclusions: in the Middle East it is not possible to establish a state with an Arab society and Western political characteristics; Iranian involvement - even the economic and cultural – will ultimately undermine Western cultural and political influence in the Middle East; and whoever legitimizes jihad against Israel receives terror in his own streets in return.

Mixed Messages About Violence from the Global March to Jerusalem

28 Adar 5772 – March 22, 2012
Whilst it is difficult to imagine exactly what sort of effective controls GMJ organizers have been able to implement in order to prevent their intended one million man march from descending into violence, it should also be noted that a considerable number of the GMJ organizers are veterans of the flotilla project who describe the Turkish activists aboard the IHH-sponsored Mavi Marmara in 2010 as ‘humanitarian aid workers’.
