Migron First

In Israel, when a politician wants to label the start of a process, he often uses the concept ". . . first!"

Our Only ‘Road Map’

Those of you who have been following my columns will recall that, time and again, I have pointed out that one can always find a correlation between the parsha and events that unfold before our very eyes. And this past week, Abu Mazen's visit to the White House was no exception.

Bush: “My Commitment To Israel Is Unshakable”

President Bush wrapped up his White House meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on Tuesday by declaring at a Rose Garden news conference, "America is firmly committed to the security of Israel as a Jewish state and we are firmly committed to the safety of the Israeli people.

Deconstructing Sharon

Discriminating readers of The New York Times grew accustomed in the late 1990's to the error-prone (as well as transparently biased) reports filed with mind-numbing regularity by the paper's former Jerusalem bureau chief Deborah Sontag.

Hateful Cartoon; Liberal Hypocrisy

Dick Locher, a cartoonist for Tribune Media Services, touched off a mini-firestorm last week with a blatantly anti-Semitic editorial cartoon that ran in the May 30 edition of the Chicago Tribune.

Lebanon 1982: The War That Drove Israel's Left Insane

It is not well understood to what a great extent the Israeli Left was radicalized by Israel's 'Peace for Galilee' invasion of Lebanon in 1982. This radicalization was very similar to the radicalization of the American Left over Vietnam.

The Hebrew Press’s Jihad Against Sharon

The hegemony over the Hebrew press in Israel by the far Left has always been a threat to Israeli democracy. The Left utilizes its near-monopoly over the press to promote its extremist and defeatist agenda in a naked manner. The Oslo debacle would never have occurred without Israel's far Left exercising near-totalitarian control over the Hebrew press and electronic media.

President Bush listens as Israeli Prime Minister Sharon speaks during Oval Office visit on Monday.


President Bush gave Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon an overwhelmingly warm welcome at the White House Monday, reiterating his lack of trust in Yasir Arafat and his support of Israel?s right of self-defense.

?No one has confidence in the emerging Palestinian government,? Bush told reporters as Sharon stood by his side.

Israel Acts – The Media Howl (Part III)

The Monitor is still trying to catch up with some of the more striking examples of media bias in the coverage of Israel's recent anti-terrorist operations in the Palestinian areas. Topping this week's list is the insufferable Ted Koppel and his separate interviews with Ariel Sharon and Yasir Arafat, both of which aired on the May 1 edition of ABC's "Nightline."

The Sage From Plains

As those of you who've been paying attention know, the Monitor has been trying to make up for a brief absence by catching up with some of the more objectionable American media coverage of recent events in and around Israel. We'll return to that task with next week's column, which should, hopefully, bring us up to date.

Do We Really Have To Hear From Mr. Netanyahu?

We are dismayed at the carping against Prime Minister Sharon by former Prime Minister Netanyahu about kowtowing to the Bush administration. He should give it a rest.

The Policy Of Restraint

Prime Minister Sharon is being roundly criticized in his own Likud Party by those who are disenchanted with his policy of "restraint." Indeed, it would now appear that former Prime Minister Netanyahu would win a vote for leadership of the Likud if it were held today. Plainly, there is much frustration with the continuing violence and the failure of Mr. Sharon to bring an end to it.

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon remains a relatively popular figure in Israel but not in his own political party. A Gallup poll out last Friday gave Sharon a 55% approval rating and indicated that if elections were held now, Likud would more than double its number of Knesset seats.

Asked whom they preferred as chairman of the Likud party and the next Likud candidate for prime minister, Israelis chose Sharon over his arch-rival, former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, by a margin of 15 percentage points, 47 to 32.
