Jewish Women Artists – Commentators on Contemporary Jewish Life

Everybody reads comics. From the New York Times to the Post there is hardly any periodical published that doesn’t sometimes feature a cartoon or comic; some kind of drawn image with text to entertain or provide commentary. Even the Jewish Press. When most people think of comics they immediately think of fictional comic books that kids read or the comic strips in the daily newspapers for adults.

Mordechai Kedar: Engulfed by Fear

The states of the Arabian Peninsula feel increasingly dependent on the US and the West to safeguard their independence and their political and economic maneuverability, but the West seems tired and exhausted, and its leadership - especially the current resident in the White House, who is heavily influenced by the approaching elections - lacks backbone and has no ability to stop the Iranians from galloping towards regional hegemony.

Buying Time for Iran

If you were PM Netanyahu and were deciding whether you could entrust the West in general, and this US administration in particular, with the physical survival of your country, what would you do?

Druze Minister: Silence of West on Syrian Massacre Strengthens al-Qaeda

Deputy Minister for Development of the Negev and Galilee Ayoob Kara on Monday called on Western democracies "to stop their intolerable procrastination, which allows the Assad regime to continue its massacres."

Defense Minister Barak Meets with U.S. Senators, Discusses Syria and Iran

Barak took the opportunity to reiterate that "All options remain firmly on the table."

Goodbye to the Oil Weapon

New sources of oil and gas found in the US, Canada and South America are expected to make the Western Hemisphere energy self-sufficient by 2030. Even Israel has new sources of natural gas. And the rest of the world’s energy supply will no longer be hostage to the Mideast-dominated OPEC cartel. So at long last we can say goodbye to the ‘oil weapon’ and to the use of surplus oil money to buy politicians and academics.

Rubin Reports: Turkey’s Gobble, Gobble Middle East Policy Makes Enemies of Everyone

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan once said that democracy was like a trolley. You ride it until you get to your destination and then get off. Presumably that’s at the point where you have consolidated power to the point you can do whatever you want and have turned Turkey into an Islamist state.

U.S. Leading Effort to Criminalize Free Speech?

The Human Rights Council concluded its nineteenth session on March 23, 2012 and adopted, without a vote, yet another resolution aimed at restricting freedom of speech throughout the world. While its title, as usual, suggests it is about combating intolerance based on religion, its plain language shows that, once again, speech is the real target.

Rubin Reports: Is Islam Innately Evil? Is Islam Innately Good? Why This Debate is...

The 'Islam-is-good school' makes the West defenseless to understand and deal with the threat. The 'Islam-is-bad' school discredits serious critiques of Islamism and honest analysis of Islam, thus letting their opponents win the debates and blind the West to the best strategy and potential allies.

Three Irrational US Mideast Policies

Barack Obama and many of his appointees share a New Left sensibility, which includes the ideas that colonialism and imperialism — particularly ‘US imperialism’ is the root of all evil, that it is meaningless to suggest that one culture could be morally superior to another, and that national interests should be subordinated to multilateral cooperation.

What if a Rational Iran Says, “Yes”?

The likelihood of Iran complying with its commitments is minimal. But there would be hundreds if not thousands of hours, days and weeks of new negotiations over whether and how the agreement is holding up. Once a deal is struck, the Western powers will be loath to cancel it, even when they know Iran is cheating.

Geert Wilders: ‘Marked for Death: Islam’s War against the West and Me’

Geert Wilders, the controversial Dutch lawmaker, has authored a new book about Islam, Marked for Death: Islam's War against the West and Me. In it he offers a detailed criticism of Islam and its incompatibility with the West: "To preserve our freedom from the encroachments of Islam, we must do four things: defend freedom of speech, reject cultural relativism, counter Islamization and cherish our national identity."

Khaled Abu Toameh: Pro-Palestinian or Anti-Israel?

Anti-Israel messages and campaigns serve only the radicals in this region who do not want either peace or coexistence. The time has come for the emergence of a genuine pro-Palestinian camp in the West that would focus less on Israel and more on helping the Palestinians.

The Academic Jihad Against Israel

In Genocidal Liberalism: The University’s Jihad Against Israel & Jews, published by the David Horowitz Freedom Center, Dr. Richard Cravatts pulls no punches, relentlessly anatomizing the pedagogic bias currently in place, which is neo-Marxist in its orientation and undeniably anti-Jewish in its expression.

Why The West Is Ripe For Jihadists’ Plucking

The riots and violence in Afghanistan over some accidentally burned Korans followed a script that by now is all too drearily familiar.

Kedar: Egypt’s Question of Sovereignty

Egypt's prosecution of pro-democracy NGOs reflects unresolved suspicions and hostilities towards the West and democracy.

FM Lieberman, Sec. of State Clinton Meet in Washington

Lieberman's visit comes as the rhetoric between the West and Iran is heating up, and a day after the conclusion of the Fatah-Hamas reconciliation agreement.

When the Moderates are Radicals

The Islamists are not “moderate” and many of the alleged moderates are not moderate. Hence, the hope for moderation and real democracy is limited by the small numbers of those who hold them.

Vice PM Yaalon: ‘Any Facility in Iran Can Be Hit’

Former IDF Chief of Staff makes comments at Herzliya Conference.

Russian Official: West is Inching Closer to Military Intervention in Syria
