Islamic terrorism has been a systematic feature of intra-Arab and intra-Muslim politics since the 7th century. Western democracies cannot expect it to be kinder to the infidel than it has been to believers.
“UN” as defined in dictionaries: a negative prefix, expressing “absence,” “lack,” “deficiency” and “adverse” applies perfectly to the UNited Nations-an UN-fit, UN-deserving, UNder achievement
A hymn to the relationship between America and its most reliable and potent ally.
These numbers don't lie
Apparently, Trump does not embrace the myth of the Palestinian issue as – supposedly - a core cause of regional instability, a crown-jewel of Arab policy-makers, nor the crux of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
Standard & Poor's (S&P) international rating agency reaffirmed Israel's credit rating of a stable AA-, despite the impact of COVID 19, the growing budget deficit and domestic political instability,
Western Mid-Easat policy – from Iran, the Arabian Peninsula, through Jordan, Egypt and North Africa - has largely failed due to a multitude of erroneous assessments made by well-intentioned policy-makers, researchers, academicians and journalists.
Wishing all a healthy and festive Sukkot
The “land-for-peace” attempts have made light of the collaboration of the Palestinian establishment with Nazi Germany, the Soviet Bloc, the Ayatollahs, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea.
Despite showering the Palestinian issue with substantial talk, the Arab/Islamic walk has mostly been directed elsewhere, Arabs have never shed blood nor dedicated their economic power on behalf of Palestinians
'Deal of the Century' anyone?
The aim of a compelling US-Israel defense pact must never involve US troops on Israel’s borders, nor determination of Israel’s future borders, nor any reference to Israeli withdrawals from the strategic high-ground of the Judea and Samaria mountain ridges (the cradle of Jewish history). Such a retreat would downgrade Israel from a strategic asset to a strategic liability.
What are the secret bonds that connect America and Israel so strongly? How far back do these bonds go? Why is the Statue of Moses displayed in the U.S. Supreme Court? Take a few minutes. Enrich yourselves...

Will Trump and Tillerson embrace Middle East reality and reject political correctness thus sparing the US further erosion of its posture of deterrence in the Middle East and beyond? We shall soon see...

Venture capital investment in Israel has grown systematically over the last decade, reflecting the steady growth of Israel’s economy.
A Bloomberg study: "An examination of foreign capital flow into Israel shows a near tripling from 2005 when the so-called BDS was started" Amazing! The harder they try to stop Israel, the more we grow
Should future Israeli prime ministers sacrifice Israel's existential national security requirements on the altar of past foolhardy non-ratified Israeli proposals?
In the words of Admiral James Stavridis, former Supreme Commander of NATO: “Our best military partner in the region, by far, is Israel…. It truly is a case of two nations that are unarguably stronger together.”
Israel's economy had a robust 2017 and next year looks even brighter!
In the Middle East, violent regime change is the rule, not the exception
Israel’s demographic surge – quantitatively and qualitatively – is bolstering the size of Israel’s future
The most critical feature/test of defensible borders in the Middle East is their capability to fend off realistic (worst-case) scenarios.
