Egypt Kicks Sand in Obama’s Face

Egypt, the Arab world’s most important single country, has been turned from an ally of America—albeit an imperfect one of course—in maintaining and trying to extend Arab-Israeli peace into a leading advocate of expanding the conflict and even potentially going to war.

Rachel Corrie and Evergreen State

Evergreen State College, where Rachel Corrie attended college, is a paradigm of the progressive cause-based model of education and has produced a high number of the anti-Israel International Solidarity Movement's activists.

Israeli Rabbis Prove Religion Works Better than Diplomacy in the Middle East

A small group of religious Jews accomplished what Israel's foreign ministry could not in 3 years of attempted diplomacy - namely, to meet with representatives from the Turkish government and attempt to heal the Turkey-Israel rift. From August 15 - 17, Shas MK Nissim Ze'ev, Shas deputy finance minister Yitzchak Cohen, the chief Rabbi of Geneva, Professor Mordechai Kedar of Bar Ilan University and other leaders met with no less than twenty Turkish parliamentarians.

Which Way for Syria? Listen to the Sermons

A friend of mine listened to the sermon given at the Ramadan evening prayer in a village near the north Syria town of Idleeb August 7. The closer one gets to ground level in the Middle East the crazier things become. Sure, by the time the Western-educated, suit and tie wearing leader sits down with the Western reporter everything sounds calm and cool. But the earth is boiling.

Jimmy Carter Unites Democrat and Republican Jews who Renounce his Convention Message

Imagine this: two Jews, one opinion! Who accomplished this miracle? None other than former US president Jimmy Carter.

Mordechai Kedar: Christians of the Middle East – Endangered Communities

The "Christian West" is perceived by traditional Islam as responsible for all of the ills of the region: the establishment of the State of Israel, its arming and its reinforcement, are perceived as a "Western" project and therefore also as a "Christian plot" and "modern crusade."

Chabad House Hosts Joe Kaufman For Lunch & Learn

Kaufman’s presentation was titled “Arab Spring or Nuclear Winter?”

On Academia, Politics and Survival in the Middle East

All of the universities in Israel are political, and moreover, all of the colleges, yeshivas, hospitals, prisons, factories, homes, roads, trees - everything that we have established, built, and planted in Israel - everything, but everything, is political. The whole Zionist enterprise is a political project because it is the political and nationalistic manifestation of the desire of the Jewish people to return to its land and to renew within it its national life, its independence and its sovereignty.

Obama Says He Failed to Push Mid East Peace, Vows to Do Better in...

"I have not been able to move the peace process forward in the Middle East the way I wanted," he told WJLA-TV, the ABC affiliate in Washington on Sunday, in response to a question on whether there was "anything you believe you failed at, not because Congress wouldn't play ball, but that rests squarely on your shoulders and has you desperate to get that second term to atone for it?"

Israel: A Peacetime War or a Wartime Peace

Jabotinsky once warned that it came down to ending the exile or the exile will end you. The ashes prove the truth of his words. Now Israel has another choice, either it will end the peace process or the process will end it.

Racism in Arab Lands

Discrimination, intolerance, and racism in the Arab world persist in many forms: they affect women; all non-Muslims; dark skinned people, Blacks, would-be refugees, and migrants.

Peace and the President’s Conference: Can a Realist Believe in Miracles?

Despite President Peres’ pleas to continue the pursuit of peace, people are beginning to say out loud that it is implausible. After assessing the situation with greater depth, I realize that I have a better chance of becoming Miss America than the Middle East does at achieving peace. Still, David Ben-Gurion made a good point when he said: “In Israel, in order to be a realist, you must believe in miracles.” Miss America or not, let’s keep that positivity coming.

Shimon Peres Honors Henry Kissinger with Award,Quartet Head Tony Blair Reflects on ‘Arab Spring’

Rubin Reports: The Middle East – Brave New World or Scary New Master?

Why would a leading figure in Turkey's ruling Islamist party identify the era of rising Islamism as a “great shame…[in which the Middle East ] fell prey to the thirst of barbarian bloodshed”?

Who’s Advising Obama On Israel?

We’ve been hearing a lot from Jewish Democrats and the administration itself that Barack Obama is the best friend Israel has ever had or, as in Joe Biden’s fractured fairy tale version of history, “has done more for Israel’s security than any president since Harry Truman” – a president who actually did nothing for Israel’s security.

Israel’s Ambassador Urging Jewish Unity in Detroit

The Detroit Free Press reports that Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren, speaking Sunday at a Jewish-American conference in Detroit, said that his...

Ron Prosor to UN Security Council on Eve of Yom Hazikaron: ‘Proud of My...

Israeli Ambassador to UN uses the opportunity to address myths that have become a "permanent hindrance" to the progress in the Middle East; myths that "in the barren deserts of the Middle East...find fertile ground to grow wild...and can surprisingly find their way" into the halls of the UN.

How The Academic Left Came To Hate Israel

On campuses today Israel is regularly, though falsely, condemned for being created “illegally” – through the “theft” of Palestinian lands and property – and thus has no “right to exist.”

Judge Throws Out Suit Calling on Minnesota to Divest its Israeli Bonds

Judge Margaret Marrinan dismissed a lawsuit looking to force the state of Minnesota to sell the $18 million in Israeli bonds which is held in its portfolio. The Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota published this understatement: "Divesting from the State of Israel, the only true democracy in the Middle East, one of our nation’s strongest allies, and an important trading partner for the State of Minnesota, is wrong."

Europe’s Islamic Future Has Arrived

In country after European country, the post-modern charade of the bliss of multiculturalism -- the idea that all cultures can coexist peacefully side-by-side in any given country -- is unravelling.

Aaron Klein Offers $50,000 Challenge To Pro-Palestinian Activist

On his WABC Radio show, Aaron Klein offered $50,000 to an organizer of the upcoming Global March to Jerusalem if the activist could name one city in the Middle East outside of Israel that has more freedom than Jerusalem.

Sovereignty and Suzerainty in The Israel-U.S. Relationship

The threat and the ominous effects of an air attack against Iran is the pull and tug of sovereignty versus suzerainty. Is Israel an independent nation free of American influence? Does the president of the U.S. have a veto over Israeli military actions? Or is Israel free of outside influences, a state enjoined by what it believes to be its self interest?
