Into the Fray: The Democrats depraved indifference.

Rather than keep the nuclear genie in the bottle, the deal with Iran irrevocably uncorks it. This deal has clear flaws and substantial risks, beyond the obvious and disturbing short duration of its term…. With this deal, we are legitimizing a vast and expanding nuclear program in Iran. We are …

Sydney commemorates Haifa Day.

I suppose like me, not many people have heard of Haifa Day.   Before giving an account of that, one needs to know of the history of India and Jews, with a brief account of the afternoon. The Haifa Day commemoration I was privileged to attend on Sunday was organised …

Arlene from Israel: Carrying on with Vigor.

The end of last week was tough: With the declaration of Senator Mikulski (D-MD) that she would support the Iran deal, Obama had the number of votes he needed to block the Senate from overriding his veto of the Congressional rejection of his Iran program.  At least on paper.  My …

Into the Fray: The Iran deal – More shameful than Munich

The passage of Iran “deal” will not only be a betrayal of US allies and the Iranian people, but of the American ethos itself…or at least of what it once was. No British Government ever will, and ever can, risk the bones of a British grenadier… I did not believe …

Arlene from Israel: One Messy Affair.

I am referring, of course, to the whole business of the votes in Congress on the Iran deal. Netanyahu has come out with a statement, echoing what I and others said yesterday, that things can still change, and we must keep fighting. Those who oppose the deal have already achieved …

Another Wall and not a peep from the Israel haters?

Yes another wall and where, oh where, are the Israel haters. Until a week ago I was under the impression at the last count there were more than 45 walls separating countries and territories. Now it seems there are more being built elsewhere in Europe. In Hungary the government is …

Presidential antisemitism.

In a discussion a few days ago, a number of people claimed that President Barack Obama was antisemitic. I personally don’t see his obvious dislike for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as antisemitism.  I don’t really know how to take him, though I do think John Kerry in making the statement  …

Arlene from Israel – THE ULTIMATE CHALLENGE

Editor’s note: This posting contains important information regarding  rallies against the Iran nuclear deal. ~~~~~~~~~~ It is Obama himself who has primary responsibility for having moved – traitorously – to empower a dangerous and radical terrorist entity (and more on this below).
