Only Our Friends Pay Taxes

There is no reason for Israel to subsidize these enterprises, which are explicitly or implicitly calling for its destruction.

Has Joe Forgotten Joseph?

Unfortunately Obama's ignorance of history and skewed ideology produced an equally skewed morality, in which there is no room for a Jewish state

It’s Not Paranoia

Jewish paranoia. The phrase is ridiculous.

How Israel Could Get a Stable Government

All this requires a government that can pay attention to multiple issues at the same time, a coalition that can work together, and a PM that is not on trial for corruption.

Is it a Still a “Free Country?”

Trump is blamed by many for damaging democracy. But I think far more damage has been and is being done by the reaction to Donald Trump. Trump and his movement are being used as an excuse to push the country down a path toward less free expression and less free thought.

But What About the Palestinians?

The response of the world media to Israel’s relative success in fighting the epidemic has been more hostile than anything I recall since the last time Israel was forced to defend herself against deadly rocket attacks from Gaza. “What about the Palestinians,” they screamed. Why aren’t we vaccinating them, too? “It’s because Israel is an apartheid state!”

Trump and Me

What was done to Trump by the Democratic media was unfair, even vicious. But his response was to throw a bomb at the US Constitution.

Jonathan Pollard is a Litmus Test. But for What? 

Pollard is a litmus test of some sort, but it is not either one for Right vs. Left or Orthodox vs. (religiously) liberal. It’s something else

The Netanyahu Tragedy

The possibility of yet another deadlocked election, especially now when leadership is desperately needed, is unthinkable. But we’ve said that at least twice before.

Israel’s Awful Electoral System

Instead of a government coming into office with a program, we get a collection of politicians looking out for their own parochial, sometimes personal, interests.

The Biden Administration and the “War of Return”

It’s essential that everyone involved in relations between Israel and the Palestinians understand the real issues that underlie the conflict. And it would be a good thing if all parties could agree to use words the same way.

Are Israeli Jews “Betraying” Americans by Liking Trump?

{Reposted from the Abu Yehuda blog} Here we go again. Another yawning gulf between Israelis and American Jews, “a rupture that threatens Jews everywhere, the...

Wokeism, Jew-hatred, and Misoziony

Israel needs to realize that the pendulum of public opinion in the US, especially among the decision-making class, is swinging against the Jewish state. The Arab and Iranian strategy of introducing money and activists into Western universities has been hugely effective in changing the national perception of Israel for the worse.

The Return of the Echo Chamber

Can any moral person seriously support the revolutionary Islamic regime in Iran? Two important lessons from recent Jewish history guide Israeli policy toward Iran: a) when they say they are going to kill you, believe them; and b) when they actually do try to kill you, almost nobody will come to your aid.

Biden Brings Back Cognitive Dissonance Over Israel

Obama's policy was to weaken Israel while pretending to help her, for example by phasing out the portion of the military aid that could be used to buy from Israel’s own military industry.

The Clock Ticks on the Iranian Nuclear Project

’m convinced that Trump’s “maximum pressure” policy on Iran is the only approach short of war that might have any chance of modifying the behavior of the Iranian regime

Plan Z

Israel would have to stop Iran--or nobody would.

The Biden Administration and Israel

It may not matter what, if anything, Biden thinks, because he will be guided by unseen hands.

The Day After Election Day

I devoutly hope the decision will be quick and unambiguous, but ultimately someone will win this election. So here is my advice to Americans about the aftermath...

Want Peace in the Middle East? Vote for Trump!

The development of a Sunni-Israel bloc in the region would be a breakthrough that would fundamentally alter the balance of power, and reduce the need for the US to physically intervene to keep the peace

Closing Israel’s Political Circus

We didn’t invite the Coronavirus into the country. It may be manmade, but not by Israelis. On the other hand, the political wounds are entirely self-inflicted. They are the fault of almost all the actors in Israel’s political circus.

Social Media and the Cognitive War Against Israel

The abuses of political correctness, cancel culture, and the wide popularity of absurd, self-contradictory theories and ideologies are all epiphenomena of the ubiquity of social media.

Unfinished Business

Who remembers Jonathan Pollard?

Trump, Biden, Bibi, and Iran

On the other hand, if Biden wins it may become clear to Israeli planners that there is a very short window of opportunity to pursue a military solution to the problem of Iranian nukes.

Israel’s Corona Disaster

Laws are upheld primarily by the willingness of citizens to obey them, with enforcement only needed for egregious violators. That mechanism is breaking down in Israel.
