The Iran Deal and the 2-State Solution: One 'Big Lie" serves another

on .

The left uses same arguments, the same falsehoods and is leading to the same level of danger for both issues. Much has been made out of Obama’s National Security flunky Ben Rhodes’ fictional imaginary advocacy for Obama’s Iran Nuclear Bomb deal.  No one should be under any delusion that Rhodes’ Iran Nuclear fictional lies were not approved by Barack Obama.  But no one should think that Ben Rhodes had to work very hard to conjure up the Iranian nuke fabrications that almost all...

Column One: The Koch Brothers meet the crackpots

on .

On issue after issue, from taxes to bathrooms to what it means to be an American, the cleavages in American society continue to expand. It’s no secret that American society and its political parties are in the midst of a period of profound instability. The presidential primaries revealed once again the vast ideological divide separating conservatives and liberals. They also revealed the yawning gap between primary voters in both parties and the parties’ leadership.   On issue after...

OPINION: Palestinian Leaders and Child Sacrifice

on .

What is happening to the Palestinian people, who have forever been led by leaders who care nothing for their well-being, is a tragedy of national proportions. The tragic death of three Palestinian siblings, killed in a fire that destroyed their house in the Gaza Strip on May 6, demonstrates yet again the depth to which Palestinian leaders will go to exploit their children for political purposes and narrow interests.   The three children from the Abu Hindi family – Mohamed, 3 years...

Column One: The fruits of subversion

on .

Sixty-eight years later, it works out there are still competing gangs trying to obligate the rest of us with their unlawful, anti-democratic and immoral behavior.   For the Obama administration, Israel’s security brass is an alternative government.   That is the lesson from an article published this week in Foreign Affairs by David Makovsky, a member of Secretary of State John Kerry’s negotiating team during his failed peace process two years ago.   Makovsky wrote that the...

Defeating Hamas in America - by Caroline Glick

Activists from US coast to coast robotically parrot the same lies, employ the same tactics of bullying, intimidating and silencing pro-Israel activists and speakers on campus after campus. To fight the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign against Israel, it is first necessary to understand it.   The BDS campaign is an extraordinary phenomenon.   Activists from US coast to coast robotically parrot the same lies, employ the same tactics of bullying, intimidating and...

Inconvenient genocide

on .

Christian communities, which like the Jews, predate Islam, are being targeted for eradication. The Christian communities of Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Lebanon are well on the way to joining their Jewish cousins. The Jewish communities of these states predated Islam by a millennium, and were vibrant until the 20th century. But the Arab world’s war on the Jewish state, and more generally on Jews, wiped out the Jewish populations several decades ago.   And now the Christian communities...

Our World: The bipartisan enemy of the good

on .

It is hard to accept the credibility of those who refuse to learn from their mistakes. On March 25, The New York Times published an editorial effectively calling for US President Barack Obama to abandon the US alliance with Egypt.   The Obama White House’s house paper urged the president to “reassess whether an alliance that has long been considered a cornerstone of American national security policy is doing more harm than good.” The editorial concluded that Obama must “start...

Netanyahu loses gas battle but wins war

on .

Why the High Court ruling cleared the last legal hoops to making the natural gas deal a reality.   Listening to the rhetoric of the critics and the supporters of the High Court of Justice’s landmark decision striking down the government’s natural gas policy, one would imagine that it was a low point of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s premiership and a high point for opponents of the policy.   Nothing could be further from the truth.   To understand why, it is important...
