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.
In the article on The New York Times interview with Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, the Times wrote that the Camp David Accord "called for the withdrawal of Israeli troops from the West Bank and Gaza to make way for full Palestinian self-rule." this is quite false.
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.
The teenagers in the video, then, were either injured non-seriously by rubber bullets, or faking for the camera.
As Israel comes closer to a confrontation with Iran, we should note that Iran’s primary strategy is unlikely to be direct conflict with Israel. Iran’s air and missile forces, despite their bragging, are not sufficiently well-developed to support such a conflict. Instead, I expect that they will depend on their main proxy, Hizballah.
My alarm bells went off when the President chose Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense.
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.
What is the Obama Administration doing in the face of the imminent collapse of the largest and historically most important and powerful state in the Arab world, now ruled by an anti-Western and anti-Semitic radical Islamic regime?
Folks, look at a map. Do you see the “West Bank” cut in two? I don’t either.
Netanyahu betrayed the families of the victims of these terrorists, who were shot, burned, stabbed, blown up and beaten to death.
Honor is a concept that is paramount in non-Western cultures, but sometimes it seems that the West has no clue about.
When can we finally put the idea of the “two-state solution” out of its misery?
Unfortunately, ‘respectable’ voices in our society, even — especially — among Jews, are unable to understand what the deliberately outrageous, over-the-top Geller sees clearly.
It's not surprising that, especially in Egypt, the State Department had a hard time finding someone who did not share the common prejudices against Jews.
People are not influenced by rational argument, but rather by emotion, so make your appeals powerful and emotional.
When will the State of Israel decide the Palestinian Arabs are a hostile enemy and treat them as such?
Somewhere between 68 and 70% of American Jewish voters went for Obama, depending on whose exit poll you believe. Israelis that I talk to are mystified. “Are they crazy? What were they thinking?” they ask. It’s not really mystifying. Here are some general facts about non-Orthodox and secular (the large majority) American Jews.
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.
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.
When push comes to shove, today’s liberals, even “strong supporters of Israel” like Chuck Schumer, are Obama supporters first.
Israel's 'apology' to Turkey will not improve relations with Turkey because relations are poor as a result of a deliberate strategy, not an unpleasant incident.
President Obama feels boxed in by his ‘red line’ promise.
Finally, what if, say, Venezuela was developing nuclear weapons and every other day one of their officials promised to root out the ‘cancer’ that was the U.S.?
The Chinese proposal gives nothing to Israel except a vague "right to exist" — which of course is in not question regarding any other nation. Indeed, it could have been dictated by Mahmoud Abbas.
A clear explanation of what international law is and is not, and how it applies to some of the controversies around the Jewish state.
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:
Anyone anyone who talks negatively about Islam is accused of bigotry and hatred on the level of the Ku Klux Klan or the Nazi party.
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.
Nothing triggers the irrational conspiracy center located not-so-deeply in the human brain better than a conspiracy that involves Jews or Israel.
There is no way the Jewish state (or for that matter, the Jewish people) will ever generate feelings of love or even liking in the world.
