Israel’s New Government: Not What You Think

The problem of this government is more likely to be one of personalities, marginal issues that get blown up in importance, and jockeying for financial benefits for different constituencies.

Rubin Reports: Romney’s Road – Blast Obama’s Failures and Policy, Expose the Lies, Seize...

Romney must respond to attacks like Gingrich or New Jersey governor Chris Christie would. A gentlemanly, gloves-on strategy will not win this election. This does not mean Romney should call Obama a socialist or Marxist. Instead, he should show that he’s the mainstream candidate while the Obama administration is out of step with historic, successful American practice.

Turning Point: Obama and Israel, the Next Three Years

The greatest danger for Israel would be to listen to the bad advice of Obama, Kerry, and their supporters.

What to Expect From Obama’s Visit

Israeli officials will be very polite in discussions and sarcastic when they talk among themselves afterward.

Kerry Doesn’t Have a Clue

Kerry subscribes--as is so fashionable today in the Obama Administration and academia--to the abusive relationship approach to foreign policy.

America’s Real ‘Dangerous Slide’ to the Wrong Side

Obama, a man who has spent a few hours in Israel and has no empathy with it, dares to say that he knows better what that country needs than does Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Rubin Reports: Is Obama Strong on National Security? Of Course Not.

The Obama administration’s portrayal of the assassination of Osama bin Laden as some courageous decision shows more than anything how weak the President is. A normal U.S. government would have taken this choice for granted, and not felt the need to stress the president’s alleged machismo.

Tonight I’m Gonna Party Like It’s 19[3]9

I have been working hard to explain to people that Iran’s nuclear weapons are not the major threat to Israel.

Egypt’s Crisis Could Be Heading Towards Us

A country of 85 million people and which is heavily armed is burning with anarchy and violence is threatening genocide against a neighbor. Might this be a matter of concern?

How Arab Governments Manage the Israel Issue

If they could have pressed a button and Israel would have disappeared, almost none of them would have hesitated.

Supporting ‘Peace Process’ and Muslim Brotherhood via Misinformation

The Palestinian leadership's goal of wiping out Israel has not changed. Only if it ever does will there be any chance of a two-state solution.

Biblical Lessons on Foreign Policy and Statism

You can learn from the Bible that people understood four thousand years ago about things that America's current leaders have forgotten today.

The Useful Myth that Obama Now Likes Israel

The idea that Obama is now backing Israel is what American Jewish voters who supported him desperately need to believe.

Rubin Reports: How Can Obama’s Middle East Policy Possibly Get Worse? Answer – Look...

Obama's policy shows three characteristics that have wider implications for the president’s strategies: It favors Islamist enemies; it “leads from behind” by giving the initiative to those who wish America no good; and it shows no interest in helping genuinely pro-American moderates who are fighting for their lives.

Rubin Reports: Why Isn’t Obama Visiting Israel?

By now it's clear that President Obama isn’t going to visit Israel in his term of office. And yet that’s pretty curious, isn’t it? After all, American politicians who seek Jewish support usually find a trip to Israel a pretty good way to claim pro-Israel credentials. And Obama has been desperate to do so, especially this year. Why, then, isn’t Obama going to visit Israel? Of course, we cannot definitively answer that question but here are some thoughts.

Why Current US Foreign Policy Debate Doesn’t Make Sense and How to Fix It

The issue is simply this one: When you say something or do something or spend something whose side are you on?

Which Way for Syria? Listen to the Sermons

A friend of mine listened to the sermon given at the Ramadan evening prayer in a village near the north Syria town of Idleeb August 7. The closer one gets to ground level in the Middle East the crazier things become. Sure, by the time the Western-educated, suit and tie wearing leader sits down with the Western reporter everything sounds calm and cool. But the earth is boiling.

Next Stop: Obama Puts his Trust in Negotiations with Iran

The most important foreign policy effort President Barack Obama will be making over the next year is negotiating with Iran. The terms of the U.S. offer are clear: if Iran agrees not to build nuclear weapons, it will be allowed to enrich a certain amount of uranium, supposedly for purposes of generating nuclear energy (which Iran doesn’t need) and other benefits, supposedly under strict safeguards.

Egypt a Teachable Moment in World History

Fundamental transformation is not for the faint of heart.

Israel Is Not About to Attack Iran and Neither is the United States: Get...

On the surface, of course, there is apparent evidence to assume Israel will attack Iran. Yet any serious consideration of this scenario says this isn’t going to happen.

Rubin Reports: Whether He Likes it or Not – Why Obama’s Policy Will Probably...

True, sanctions are hurting Iran but this regime is hardly delicate and gives every appearance of using negotiations only as a stalling tactic. Anybody who thinks the Iranian regime will crack under sanctions is living in wishful-thinking world. No matter how many chances Obama gives Iran, it’s still going to go full-speed ahead toward obtaining nuclear weapons and matching them up to long-range missiles.

Why Islamists Always ‘Win’ in Fair Elections

In the Middle East, secular movements are more poorly funded and more naïve about how to operate politically than the Islamists.

Israel-Palestinian ‘Peace’ Would Destabilize Middle East

Ironically, if Israel and the Palestinian Authority signed a peace agreement, the recruiting and encouragement of extremism in the region would be at far higher levels than it is now.

Rubin Reports: Mitt Romney Captures Jerusalem

Speaking to an often-cheering group of about 400 people in Jerusalem, Governor Mitt Romney gave a speech less notable for what he said than for the fact that the audience believed he was sincere in saying it.

The Battle of Gettysburg, 150 Years Later

Suddenly, as the still-alive Confederates reached the Union line, we charged forward to go into action.

Rubin Reports: Egypt’s Presidential Election – Moderate Establishment vs. Totalitarian Revolutionaries

Egypt’s fate, I think, will not be settled by the June 16-17 presidential election. It has already been set by the parliamentary election which has given a large majority to the Islamists as well as the ability to write the constitution. If Ahmad Shafiq defeats the Brotherhood candidate, Muhammad al-Mursi, the only way out would be a Shafiq-army alliance, giving the president — who has no political party and no organized base of support in parliament — some muscle.

The Islamist Regime’s Game Plan for Egypt

Originally published at Rubin Reports. What’s been happening in Egypt this week is as important as the revolution that overthrew the old regime almost two...

After the Fall: What Do You Do When America Is (Temporarily) Kaput?

The current voluntary, but not inevitable, decline of the United States places many US allies at risk.

Why the Mass Media Can’t Report Honestly on Israel

Since the Israeli argument is so cogent and backed by facts and observable realities, it would be dangerously persuasive to those who actually get to hear it.

Wake Up, America, It Ain’t 1895

America, this is not the Victorian age of dark satanic mills and brutal capitalists who laugh while watching children starve.
