New Egyptian President: ‘We Will Revise the Camp David Treaty’

The statement, made by Mohammed Morsi in an interview with Fars News Agency published Monday, seems to contradict comments he made in his televised victory speech, where he offered a vague assurance that he would "preserve international accords and obligations."

General Salami Warns Enemies’ Interests “Within Range” of Iran’s Missiles

“In our strategic planning, we have defined a radius named the radius of deterrence, which includes all strategic interests of the enemy in the region, so that we can manage the battle at any level in case of the outbreak of war,” Brigadier General Hossein Salami said.

Balkanizing Israel

Turkey is trying hard to carve out a new international role, attempting to leverage the unrest generated by the Arab Spring to garner wider influence throughout the Mideast and beyond. The larger story, the part that transcends the Turkish thrust/counter-thrust, is far more intriguing. Shifting regional alignments offer a wealth of possibilities for savvy Israeli initiatives in a wider sphere of ripening influence. Indeed, a true sea change is imminent for the Israel in the heart of the Balkans.

Why Boycotts on Products from Judea and Samaria are Counterproductive

Boycotts on products from Judea and Samaria harm Palestinian livelihood. The simple truth is that industry in Judea and Samaria are imperative for Palestinian livelihood.

Cartoon Rehab: It’s Miller Time, Sort Of

Today's cartoon is from Al-Watan (Qatar), from way back in May 13, 2003. The U.S. and Israel are shown eating from two sides of an apple that represents “the Arab states.” According to the middle-east-info.org, where we found it, this cartoon is noteworthy because it was published in Qatar, home to the Al Jazeera TV network. Qatar is considered by many in the U.S. State Department to be a U.S. ally and a relatively moderate state.

Cartoon Rehab: Toon Gets Tattooed

This one took the Photoshop equivalent of plastic surgery. The depiction of both the vampire-like Jewish person and the dead child in his arms is so vile, I had to fix every little aspect of the image.

Cartoon Rehab: The Cleansing Power of Baseball

The trick with this nasty but very well drawn cartoon, in which the Jews are depicted as a creature reminiscent of Sigourney Weaver's Alien, speaking to a wise, old Muslim sage, was to remove both religious symbols. Once those were out of the way, it became a cute setup for some sort of vaudeville-style sketch ("Who's on first" comes to mind).

IDF Soldiers Save Critically Ill Palestinian Infant

Last Sunday night, a Palestinian woman arrived with her 12-day-old baby girl at an IDF post in the Benjamin region of Judea and Samaria. The infant was having trouble breathing and needed immediate first aid. Commanders from the Benjamin Regional Brigade explained that Palestinians in the region know that if they have a life-threatening emergency, they can come to the IDF post for assistance.

Cartoon Rehab: Fixing the Crucifix

This cartoon, by Syrian artist Tishrin, was published September 22, 2011, and, to be fair, as anti-Israeli cartoons go it is relatively tame. But I was delighted by the opportunity to turn Tishrin's clever (albeit kinda trite) use of the letter T as cross, into the letter T as clothesline.

Cartoon Rehab: Oh, Go Ahead, Surrender, You Know You Want To…

Welcome to the Jewish Press Online Cartoon Rehabilitation Project (JPOCRP), or, in short (suggested by our colleague Rafi Harkham) Cartoon Rehab. We found this cartoon on the ADL website. They say it was originally published in Oman, April 12, 2012, and the original text, written in blood, says: "We Will Never Surrender."

Israel’s Letter to UN Regarding Gaza Rocket Attacks

Ambassador Haim Waxman: "In previous letters . . . we warned of the dangers of inaction by the international community.

The events of the last two days have proven the danger of silence on behalf of the international community at large, and the Security Council, in particular."

As Netanyahu and Obama Meet: In Post-‘Arab Spring’, Israel is not the core problem
