Martin Indyk: U.S. Thought Israel Was Going to Attack in Spring

In an interview with former US ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk on Galei Tzahal radio Thursday morning, Indyk stated that the US was expecting...

Yoram Ettinger: Israel’s Unilateral Action – a Test of Sovereignty

From time immemorial, the Jewish People has faced powerful adversities in asserting its sovereignty over the Land of Israel, and by undertaking unilateral national security actions. Conviction-driven defiance of adversity has earned the Jewish People deep respect.

Holy Land of Opportunity: North American Jews Finding Jobs in Israel

Jews across America, in the privacy of their own computer screens, are scanning the internet for job opportunities which will enable them to make the leap toward life in Israel.

Arrogance, Silence, and the Saudi Threat

There is one great truth that all Israelis know; that all Jews have accepted. Today's modern Jew, at least in Israel, is different than the Jew of yesteryear.

Surviving an IRS Audit in Israel

Numerous Americans in Israel have received their $1000 tax credits per child. Now Uncle Sam wants to make sure you deserved to get it.

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.

Should the US Remilitarize Military Procurement?

Today, control over all major military spending decisions remain exclusively in the hands of political appointees, and soldiers, sailors and airmen are left with the job of trying to defend their country and themselves with the inferior results of decisions made by politicians.

When Will Israel Attack Iran?

All of Israel’s wars involve the US as a silent ally or silent not-so-much-ally. The question of “what will the US allow Israel to do?” is almost as important as “what is Israel capable of doing?” And the timing of any action with regard to the upcoming election is very relevant to US behavior.

Palestinians Plan to Outmaneuver Israel, the US, in Next Bid for UN Statehood

The Palestinian Authority will likely bid in September to become a UN “non-member observer state.” A document prepared by the PLO’s negotiations support unit, says both Israel and the U.S. have an arsenal of punitive measures at their disposal. It says the U.S. could close the PLO mission in Washington, suspend aid to the Palestinians or withhold contributions to any UN agency the Palestinians try to join. The Arab League last month gave Abbas its backing for a new General Assembly bid, but did not specifically recommend its timing.

A Paradoxical Relationship

Let’s explain what is usually considered a major paradox: the US provides billions in military aid to Israel, enabling it to keep its enemies at bay. But at the same time its diplomats claim that they don’t know what the capital is, and the major thrust of US policy since 1973 has been to force Israel to withdraw to indefensible boundaries, despite the obvious damage to its security.

Why Israel spies on the US

One must ask what, exactly, is the aim of Israeli spying against the US? It is certainly not — as with Soviet and contemporary Russian espionage — to weaken us diplomatically and gain a military advantage in a possible conflict. Nor does it, as is the case with Chinese spying, also include a massive component of industrial espionage to erode America’s competitive advantage in world markets.

Two Versions of American History

No nation is perfect, and they all have skeletons in their closets. But the US does have a commitment to such things as individual rights, equality of opportunity, social mobility, democracy, rule of law, etc. Many other nations — perhaps most of them — don’t even pay lip service to these ideals, much less exemplify them.

Republicans Unveiling Jewish Democrats’ Buyer’s Remorse Ads

The multimillion-dollar advertising campaign, titled “My Buyer’s Remorse,” will be aired in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania in the coming weeks.

The Art of “Gray-Hull Diplomacy”

How should an American president use the military in an intimidating, persuasive manner, to induce Iran to give up her nuclear-weapons purpose? Very little has been discussed on this topic in the forums of punditry; virtually all treatments focus on the feasibility or proper method of a military attack campaign. Is there an “intimidation option,” short of a shooting war? And if so, what would it look like?

J.E. Dyer: Tumultus Post-Americanus

The Tumultus Post-Americanus is now well underway. There is no initiative on our collective part – we have done nothing but react in the last three years – and possibly even less appreciation of how the world is changing. The forms of international discourse – the processes of the UN, the G-8 and G-20, the IMF – are being adhered to now because they are a convenience, not because they produce anything useful.

Guess Who’s Helping Assad Get Away With Murder?

Brown Lloyd James, according to its website, "is managed by an elite group of distinguished former news executives, top-level White House and Downing Street political advisors, high-profile entertainment industry executives and experts in international affairs. Our staff have been at the right hand of presidents, prime ministers, media barons – and yes, even The Beatles."

Obama Invites Egypt’s President – Morsi Likely to Seek Freedom for ‘Blind Sheikh’

President Barack Obama has invited his newly elected Egyptian counterpart Mohamed Morsi to visit the US for an official visit in September. Deputy Secretary of State William Perez said he delivered this message during his meetings with Morsi on Sunday. One of the issues Morsi is certain to bring up as part of the preparation for his visit, would be his pledge to seek the release of Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman from U.S. custody.

US Vessel Finds Bodies of Turkish Pilots

Two pilots, whose jet was shot down by Syria, have been found in the eastern Mediterranean sea bed.  The plane was shot down on...

Iran’s ‘Great Prophet’ Military Drill: A Display of the Obsolete?

Iran's current three-day military drill, understood as a thinly-veiled and defiant response to the newest round of EU sanctions on its petroleum industry, is intended to demonstrate Iran's ability to retaliate to a US or Israeli attack. But the maneuvers may be having the opposite effect, as more experts are coming to the conclusion that Iran's incessant sabre-rattling and bellicosity seek to mask the obsolete and impotent state of its armed forces.

Stealth: Not-So-Secret Secrets

Since its existence was revealed during the 1980 Presidential campaign, "stealth" has become surrounded by an aura of mystery and invincibility that tends to obscure its value in being able to defeat the most advanced air defense systems.
