World leaders on biased UNSC resolution; NZ waits.

While the passing of the controversial UNSC Resolution 2334 on the eve of Christmas and Hanukkah went under the radar of many, a number of world leaders have spoken out. Even members of Obama’s own party are appalled at the stance taken by the United States; UK Prime Minister Theresa …

Into the Fray: John Kerry at 2016 Saban Forum-Misrepresenting Two-Statism

Oslo failed not because Israelis built crèches, kindergartens and schools across pre-1967 lines, but because Palestinian-Arabs blew up Israeli cafes, buses and malls inside those lines. Raise your hands… how many of you believe in a two-state solution, believe two states is critical? …Okay, it’s the vast majority of people …

From the desk of Dr. Ron Weiser. AM. May 2016 opinion piece.

“The end of democracy” trumpeted the headlines. 5 Prime Ministers in 6 years and half the time without an election! Oh hang on, that’s Australia. Israel. Same Prime Minister consistently since 2009, one who has been democratically elected and re-elected by the people, but who goes through a clumsy somewhat …

From the Desk of Dr Ron Weiser AM.

It’s a little surreal sitting here in a coffee shop in the centre of Jerusalem witnessing the ever changing political landscape and evolving events. The streets are definitely fuller than they were a week ago and Israelis are getting out to restaurants again, taking advantage of the beautiful weather. Not …

Arlene from Israel: Telling Truth to a Reluctant World.

Most important for each of you is to run with the information that I am providing. This is information that is often not shared by media outside of Israel.  I think the tide is beginning to turn: Abbas has gone too far.  Please!  as always, put this information out in …

Arlene from Israel: A Tough Struggle.

There are a great many measures against the terrorism that the Security Cabinet has passed or is considering at this point. It seems to me that among the most powerful are those that affect the families of terrorists. Potential terrorists anticipate becoming “shahids” – martyrs – and having their names …

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  …

Into the Fray:The Iran deal – moronic, myopic, malevolent, mendacious

The most disingenuous & infuriating contentions made by supporters of the ignominious Iran “deal” is that its opponents offered no better alternative. Our goal is to get Iran to recognize it needs to give up its nuclear program and abide by the UN resolutions that have been in place…the deal …

Editor’s note: Please pass this on to as many US citizens as you can it contains important information regarding ‘STOP IRAN’ rallies ========================    I’ve long known that Daniel Greenfield – who formerly posted as “Sultan Knish” – is an incisive, politically-incorrect, “tell-it-as-it-is” writer.  In his latest piece – “Time …

Arlene from Israel – A Lethal Farce.

For days, I have delayed writing because the situation regarding negotiations with Iran has been so much in flux.  I was waiting, waiting, for some outcome or closure.  My own feeling for some time has been that there is the possibility that there will be no deal, as the Iranians …

Arlene from Israel: Ongoing.

It’s obvious that many of the happenings I write about, rather than being discrete events, are snapshots of a continuing situation.  And so, I must return to these continuing situations repeatedly. It is only a couple of days since I wrote about Obama’s horrific policies regarding Iran.  I said then …

Arlene from Israel – Nauseating

Before we get to the events that are stomach-turning, I want to circle back just briefly to Netanyahu’s talk in Congress. I cannot consider every commentary (and there are so many!), but what Charles Krauthammer wrote seems worthy of note here. He refers to “the libel being perpetrated by some …

Arlene from Israel – Wearisome

My friends, how long can we monitor the current political situation without feeling weary to the bone – no, even more, revolted – because of what is taking place. Here in Israel, the left is using Bibi’s upcoming speech in the Congress as a weapon with which to attack him.  …

Arlene from Israel: The Good News That Is.

Along with the bad news, we can see those who do get it and respond appropriately.  I will describe what I have learned briefly – briefly being my practice, of necessity, before Shabbat. The first issue is the matter of Obama’s State of the Union threat to veto any legislation …

Into the Fray: Bennett at Saban:What he should & shouldn’t have said

Naftali Bennett gave a spirited performance at the recent Saban Forum, but was far more convincing on what should not be done, than on what should be done.  You know, I just think you live in another reality. It’s what Steve Jobs called distorted reality thinking. – Martin Indyk to …

Into the Fray: Parade of the pretentious, the preposterous and the puerile

The current leadership seems totally incapable of recognizing the Palestinians for what they are, and what they declare themselves to be – an implacable enemy.   ‘What happened yesterday, when four senior ministers gave public addresses one after the other with each proposing a different political solution, was a grotesque …
