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 …

Arlene from Israel – Looking Further.

A friend of mine commented yesterday on my posting (which in fact she liked) that it felt strange because “we are programmed to expect more and more [on] Iran.”  Sad but true. So as not to disappoint, I will write this pre-Shabbat posting with more on Iran.  But with a …

From the Desk of Dr Ron Weiser AM.

Summer in Israel. Hard to beat. The sun was shining, the weather was hot and the hotels and restaurants were full again. What a contrast from just a year ago and Operation Protective Edge. A personal highlight for myself was the visit to the museum on Moshav Avichail and to …

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 – Beyond.

Editor’s note: This item today from Arlene is of importance and needs to be shared widely. ~~~~~~~~~~ Beyond all comprehension. Beyond what is remotely tolerable. Integrity? This, of course, we cannot not speak of at all. In the end, we can only speak of avarice and self-serving short-sightedness and just …

Arlene from Israel – Dealing As It Comes.

In my book, no issue in the news takes precedence over the negotiations with Iran. I feel as if I keep repeating myself, and yet I must, because each time after I’ve written that the situation has deteriorated vis-à-vis the negotiations, it gets worse still. I am, quite frankly, confounded, …

Arlene from Israel – Unity

Because first things must come first, I begin by marking National Unity Day.  As Michelle Napell of One Family Fund wrote in a message: “We prayed for them, we cried for them and now we remember them.  “It has been one year since terrorists kidnapped and murdered Israeli teenagers, Gil-ad …

Arlene from Israel – Tracking

First a correction. The information I had cited from Israel National News, regarding President Rivlin receiving an award from NIF turned out to be inaccurate. He is, rather, to receive an award from the Jewish-Arab center for cooperation, Givat Haviva. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/195825#.VWWHz5uJjIW Givat Haviva – a recipient of NIF funds – …

Arlene from Israel – Mid-Pesach.

  Here in Israel, the world sort of floats in limbo over the Pesach week; and so I thought that perhaps I would not post until the holiday was over. But life does go on, and I’ve decided to write.  But before I move to the serious matters calling for …

Arlene from Israel – Bone Weary.

 Anyone who is tracking the news these days, and genuinely cares for the security of Israel and the future of the US – not to mention Europe and the Mideast – has got to have an extremely heavy heart.  We are facing some very dark times. With regard to Israel, …

Israel: Security in a Small Country

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described Israel as “a small country, one of the smallest”. That is true, but only part of the story. As Bibi added “Israel is strong, but it’s much more vulnerable [than the US].” Size: Israel is about 20,000 square kilometers, using the 1949 Armistice Lines, or 22,000 …

Into the Fray: Whew! But…

The unthinkable has been avoided – narrowly. The greatest challenge now will be to deal with a detrimental, dysfunctional and, not infrequently, disloyal opposition. With respect to the people’s choice, if this is in fact its choice, I do not accept it … If that is the choice of the …
