    The Logic of the ‘Winged Pig Conditional’

    To a great extent, the whole idea of a two-state solution as presented by President Obama, Shimon Peres, etc. is a winged pig.

    Honor and Deterrence

    Honor is a concept that is paramount in non-Western cultures, but sometimes it seems that the West has no clue about.

    Why Some Israelis Welcome Rocket Attacks

    As citizens of Israel these ‘Palestinians’ enjoy the highest standard of living of any Arabs in the Middle East, as well as more personal and political freedom.

    Antisemitism in the UK, Then and Now

    In Birkenhead, near Liverpool, slaughterhouse workers had refused to process any more meat for Jewish consumption until the attacks on British soldiers in Palestine stopped.

    How Not to Keep Israel from Bombing Iran

    Unwilling to issue an ultimatum, the U.S.will go no further than to repeat that “we will not allow Iran to get a nuclear weapon,” but it will not say — publicly or to Israel — how far it will allow Iran to go.

    Who Killed Jihad Masharawi’s Son, Omar?

    Although it was widely claimed in the press that this child died in an Israeli strike, none appears to have taken place at the time of his death.

    Bank of China May Have Helped Hamas Kill Jews

    Hamas is nourished by a worldwide network of governments, Islamic charities and individuals that support its goal of killing or dispersing the Jews. But the existence of the sources of nourishment isn’t enough. Since Hamas is a recognized as a terrorist organization and sanctioned by the US and other nations, there are impediments to transferring funds to it which can be translated into weapons, ammunition and jihadist expenses. Sometimes this is facilitated by ‘respectable’ enterprises that are officially opposed to terrorism and murder, but in fact do whatever makes them a buck. Like the Bank of China, according to the Israel Law Center — Shurat HaDin, which has filed a $1 billion lawsuit in a New York court accusing the bank of materially supporting Hamas terrorism.

    British MP Still Angry about 1948

    A pity he didn’t get his arrogant Jew-hating head blown off, in my opinion.

    Will Obama Soon Announce ‘Peace in Our Time’?

    Can we expect an October Surprise this year? We may already have one brewing. A former CIA operative calling himself “Reza Khalili” and claiming to have been an agent inside the Iranian Revolutionary Guards organization, who has previously made skeptically-received claims that Iran had already produced 90% enriched uranium, is now saying that the Obama Administration has struck a deal with the Iranian regime that will shortly be announced:

    Will Syria Retaliate?

    It is important to Assad to promote the narrative that his ‘legitimate’ regime is under attack by outsiders like Israel.

    How our Media Blew a Story

    The "Innocence of Muslims" film was a pretext to boost radical Islamists. The media are downplaying this angle, because it suggests that the administration policy toward the Muslim world expressed in the President’s Cairo speech of 2009 is dangerously wrong-headed.

    Cal. Univ. Pro-Israel Professor Harassed and Defamed

    In the snake pit of academia, where unfashionable explicit Jew-hatred has morphed into enthusiastic and widespread over-the-top anti-Zionism, Professor Tammi Rossman-Benjamin stands out.

    Surrender Corrupts the Soul of Israel

    Fein is wrong. The corruption of the Jewish soul did not begin in 1967. It began with the adoption of the idea that surrender is pro-Israel.

    Recognition First, Recognition Above All

    Israel must insist that there can be no negotiations until all parties agree that Israel is the Jewish state of the Jewish people.

    Why Russia Supports Iran

    The Historical Fantasies of Mahmoud Abbas

    The Places Obama Will Avoid

    When does the 'Unbreakable Bond' become an abusive relationship?

    The European Problem with Zionism

    Yes, Israel affords civil rights and freedom of worship to its many minorities; but it makes no attempt to deny that there is one specific people, one particular narrative, one religion to which is it most centrally committed. The State of Israel is, to paraphrase Lincoln, “by the Jews, of the Jews and for the Jews.” How could those who labored to create the European Union not consider the very idea of a Jewish state anathema?

    Sandra Korn’s Academic Totalitarianism

    The fact that she chooses a boycott of Israeli universities as an example of a just limitation of academic freedom is a perfect example of the defect in her approach.

    A Letter to the Corries: Your Daughter was Exploited, Don’t Blame Israel

    You have chosen to honor your daughter's memory by taking her side. That's understandable, but it doesn’t validate the ideology that got her killed in order to further its goals of still more death and destruction.

    A Very Bad Weekend

    It looks from here like a really bad weekend in Israel. Some 40-odd rockets were fired from Gaza at southern Israel within 48 hours,...

    Some Things I Believe

    I am a Zionist. That means that I support a Jewish state in its historical homeland. I oppose efforts to change it into another Arab state, or to kill and disperse its Jewish inhabitants. It does not mean that I think that Jews are superior to Arabs or anyone else.

    The Post-Structuralist Version of the Sermon on the Mount

    We need to understand that a universalist civilization will not survive a contest with a tribalist one. If we don’t value our civilization, who will?

    US Reform Jews Following Same Path as in 1940s

    The liberal wing of the Jewish establishment in the US is following the same path as it did in the 1940s.

    The October Non-Surprise: Secret Talks

    In my last blog, I called attention to a report that the US and Iran had made a secret agreement to end sanctions in return for a halt or pause in uranium enrichment. I suggested that this could be an “October Surprise:” the Obama campaign could claim that the President’s policy of partial sanctions and “tough diplomacy” had forced the Iranians to back down from their march toward nuclear weapons.

    Terrorism? What terrorism?

    During the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations the US government has actively courted Muslims who have overt connections to terrorism.
