Gaza is Not the Key, Philadelphi Is

19 Kislev 5773 – December 2, 2012
By removing this layer of Israeli protection, an "exponential increase" in the Gaza arsenal predictably followed, culminating in the Fajr-5 missiles that reached Tel Aviv this month.

Daniel Pipes: Reflections on Current Hamas-Israel Hostilities

5 Kislev 5773 – November 18, 2012
If Hamas knows it cannot defeat the Israel Defense Forces and will get a bloody nose for its efforts, it obviously has motives other than victory in mind.

Daniel Pipes: Why I am Voting Republican

21 Heshvan 5773 – November 5, 2012
I vote Republican because I support the party's core message of individualism, patriotism, and respect for tradition, in contrast to the core Democratic message of dependence, self-criticism, and "progress." I am inspired by the original reading of the U.S. Constitution, by ideals of personal freedom and American exceptionalism. I vote for small government, for a return of power to the states, for a strong military, and an assertive pursuit of national interests.

Daniel Pipes: Superficiality Reigns Before the Election

20 Heshvan 5773 – November 4, 2012
It happens every four years, as U.S. presidential elections roll around: I feel like a stranger. That's because news reports blare out what's not of interest: trivial statistics (171,000 jobs added in October; jobless rate up 0.1 percent to 7.9 percent), biographical irrelevancies (claims that Romney outsourced jobs to other countries when at Bain Capital), and forgettable gaffes (Obama saying that "Voting is the best revenge"). This limited discussion misses the main points.

Romney Stumbles on Foreign Policy

8 Heshvan 5773 – October 23, 2012
Barack Obama has a weak record in the Middle East, but one would not learn this from the debate, where Mitt Romney praised Obama's achievements ("It's wonderful that Libya seems to be making some progress"), agreed with Obama more than he disagreed, and rarely pointed out his failings. Presumably, Romney took this mild approach to establish his likability, competence, and suitability to serve as commander-in-chief.

Romney Channels George W. Bush’s Middle East Policy

25 Tishri 5773 – October 10, 2012
Mitt Romney gave a generally fine speech today on the Middle East. Sensibly, he criticized the Obama administration for its Benghazi shenanigans, for the "daylight" with Israel, fecklessness vis-à-vis Tehran, and the cuts in military spending. Very justifiably, he called it "time to change course in the Middle East." But I worry about three specifics.

Experts: Israel’s New Bunker-Busters Can Take Out Iran’s Nuke Plants

12 Adar 5772 – March 6, 2012
Berlin-based researcher Benjamin Weinthal argues that Israel is militarily capable today of launching a successful attack on Iran's nuclear facilities. It would require successive strikes, using GBU-28 bunker busters to knock out Iran's entire nuclear program. Those devastating bombs were delivered to Israel by President Obama, who made good on a promise made by President Bush.

Arab Like Me

30 Shevat 5772 – February 22, 2012
There are two kinds of Arabs in this world. Those who hate Jews, and those who don’t. And in my life, I have met more of the former than the latter.

Will New Oil Sanctions Be the Game-Changer in Iran?

2 Shevat 5772 – January 26, 2012
EU outlawing of Iranian oil imports is already hurting the Iranian economy. But will it have an effect beyond that?

Turning Holocaust Remembrance Into Israel Bashing

20 Tishri 5772 – October 18, 2011
The German Holocaust foundation Remembrance, Responsibility, Future - EVZ - is in a state of denial concerning misuse of public funds meant to largely compensate the victims of the Shoah but used instead to finance anti-Semitic student exchange programs in Israel and Germany.

What Drives Celebrity Anti-Semitism?

25 Adar II 5771 – March 30, 2011
In a span of several weeks, a motley group of celebrities ranging from the composer of "Zorba the Greek" to a British fashion designer to an American television actor - as well as the Australian founder of WikiLeaks - have all manifested Judeophobia. What is this global celebrity outburst targeting Jews all about?

Web Choices 2007/Revised Edition

It’s been several months since the Monitor’s last listing of worthwhile websites and blogs, so here’s an updated version.

10 Shevat 5766 – February 8, 2006
It’s time again for the Monitor’s latest listing of worthwhile websites and blogs. (As always, there is no particular order to the list; names appearing toward the top are not necessarily more valuable than those closer to the bottom.)
