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).

Arlene from Israel – “Impossible”

Impossible to have predicted that the current world situation would have devolved into something quite as vile as it has.  The more we know about that Iran deal, the greater our understanding of how truly awful it is. The concessions to Iran have been mind-boggling, but in the end, a …

Kids throwing stones.

Stop calling Mohammad Kosba a kid. He was a 17 year old terrorist who attempted murder. It was just chance his intended victim was a soldier and not a civilian, the same age as he. To call him a teen on his way to pray, as did Mondoweiss is truly …

UN’s Confusion on the Legality of Israel’s Blockade of Gaza

In June 2015, the United Nations issued a report highly critical of Israel’s handling of its war against Palestinian attacks. Throughout the report, the committee suggested that the Israeli blockade of Gaza was a major cause for suffering of Palestinians, rather than a result of Palestinian actions, and helped precipitate the …

Arlene from Israel – The Horrific Made Real.

Until the end there was doubt that this would actually happen. But it happened. Heaven help us now. The fools who were negotiating in Vienna have reached an agreement. And look how happy they appear, after the crushing damage they have fomented. (Of course Zarif of Iran, who is laughing …

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 …

Into the Fray: Israel’s lethal land-for-peace laureates.

Paradoxically, indeed perversely, the policies of Israel’s peace laureates have not only made peace increasingly remote, but Israel increasingly untenable. Itzhak Rabin Poor Menachem [Begin]… I got back… the Sinai and the Alma oil fields, and what has Menachem got? A piece of paper. – Anwar Sadat, on the peace …

The Invisible Murdered Israelis: Every Picture Tells a Story.

In an Instagram and Twitter world, people expect their news in small tidbits.

Jabotinsky and the Light Rail.

Earlier today…last week, last month, last year…I wrote about the light rail being stoned…here’s a picture of what it looks like.

Arlene from Israel – How Many?

How many times can I write about the P5+1 negotiations with Iran and demonstrate how Obama has caved even further?  How outrageous and terrifying and jaw-droppingly perverse it all is? The new deadline for completion is tomorrow, July 7th.  And so I must return to this subject once again.  I …

The Narrative that Prevents Peace in the Arab-Israeli Conflict.

Everyone has a perspective. Marcus Aurelius, the Roman emperor, was credited with saying “Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.” Our opinions and perspectives are shaped by many things including our backgrounds and biases. When two people look at …

Never do I relinquish hope, my friends. Not even in the midst of growing horrors. And so I begin here with something we did right: the way we handled the “threat” of the “Freedom Flotilla.” The flotilla, carrying a total of 47 passengers, was comprised of four boats, lead by …

Into the fray:The logical lacunae of the Left – Ari Shavit at AJC

Despite Shavit’s eloquence, his message was nonsensical, myopic and logically inconsistent –heavily tinged with the soft bigotry of low expectations from the Palestinians. It is no secret that AJC believes in the two-state solution as a better, more practical alternative than all the others that have been proposed – Michael …
