What Obama Isn’t Telling You About the Middle East

On October 29, 2012,

Octo­ber 28, 2012 Breitbart.com The biggest issue Israel faces today is not the garden-variety Arab Spring. It also is not whether equal­ity and democ­racy reign in Israel. It’s also sur­pris­ingly not the Palestinian-Israeli con­flict many asso­ciate as the bone of con­tention of the region. The mother-of-all-issues, as I learned Mon­day from Dr. Andy David, Israel’s Consul […]

Taking the Pro-Israel Pulse

On August 20, 2012,

August 19, 2012  Breitbart.com When the Inter­na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee recently denied recog­ni­tion of 11 Israeli Olympians mur­dered dur­ing the Munich Games in its open­ing cer­e­mony, and Mitt Romney’s ad cam­paign dinged Pres­i­dent Obama for not vis­it­ing Israel dur­ing his term, many turn to grass­roots pro-Israel orga­ni­za­tions to assess the dam­age. I can speak can­didly on this […]

Woody Allen: Will You or Won’t You?

On July 9, 2012,

I can’t think of any pro-Israel advo­cate who wouldn’t love to have Woody Allen make his next film in Israel. Can you? I didn’t think so. Espe­cially, after Allen has time and time again said there’s no good rea­son to leave Man­hat­tan yet he’s made four films in Lon­don, one in Spain, one in Rome and […]

Mavi Maramara Sequel: Knife-Weilding ‘Aid’ Ship Goes to Court

On May 28, 2012,

May 27, 2012 • Breitbart.com Does polit­i­cal pos­tur­ing pass as an indict­ment in Turkey’s judi­cial sys­tem these days? Is Turk­ish Pres­i­dent Recep Tayipp Erdo­gan using a page from the old Arab League, post-Shah Iran­ian play­book again? Will Turkey’s poorly-written sequel about an “aid” ship with “peace­ful human­i­tar­i­ans” car­ry­ing rice and beans (i.e., provo­ca­teurs with ter­ror­ist ties […]

You Can’t Take the Crazy Out of Ahmadinejadisms

On May 22, 2012,

Over the years, I’ve had the oppor­tu­nity to blog about issues affect­ing Israel and the Mid­dle East. Cur­rently, skep­ti­cism in Israel is high as Iran read­ies to sign a deal with the IAEA just before the 6-Power talks get under­way in Bagh­dad. Israeli lead­ers have good rea­son to be skep­ti­cal of any­thing Iran signs with the […]

With Love From Iran

On May 17, 2012,

Today, Iran’s For­eign Min­istry spokesper­son offered a tid­bit that I couldn’t help but nib­ble on. In his lat­est threat, Ramin Mehman­parast told the semi­of­fi­cial Mehr news agency Thurs­day that if Google doesn’t restore the name of the Per­sian Gulf to its Google Maps ser­vice, the inter­net giant could face “seri­ous dam­ages.” Given this logic, what’s good for […]

Nothing Says Peace Like Molotov Cocktails

On May 15, 2012,

There’s some­thing to be said for civ­i­liza­tions that rise above adver­sity and vio­lence and focus on progress and pros­per­ity. Israel is not only con­sid­ered the Sil­i­con Val­ley of the Mid­dle East for its wel­ter of tech­no­log­i­cal star­tups and con­tri­bu­tions, it’s also feed­ing hun­gry bel­lies in devel­op­ing coun­tries via its break­throughs with drip irri­ga­tion and other […]

Iran Stalls, Bluffs & Denies its Nuclear-Related Military Ambitions

On May 4, 2012,

When faced with more Iran­ian stonewalling regard­ing inspect­ing its Parchin mil­i­tary facil­ity sus­pected of nuclear-related mil­i­tary research, noth­ing holds truer than the proverb: “If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and looks like a duck, it must be a duck.” Now, the UK Ambas­sador to Israel, Matthew Gould is speak­ing out that the five per­ma­nent members […]

Ahmadinejad or Ashton? Tough Choice

On May 1, 2012,

Which is worse? Ahmadine­jad claim­ing his Islamic regime is devel­op­ing nuclear iso­topes to “treat can­cer” or EU For­eign Pol­icy Chief Cather­ine Ash­ton spear­head­ing the P5+1 engage­ment team try­ing to nego­ti­ate a solu­tion with Iran?  For those fol­low­ing the issues closely, choos­ing between these two presents a real dilemma. Those who know Iran’s his­tory of call­ing Israel a cancer […]

Israel Still the Beacon of Nations 64 Years Later

On April 26, 2012,

April 26, 2012 • Act For Israel It’s hard to believe 64 years after Israel reached its mod­ern inde­pen­dence that we would be in an inces­sant world dis­cus­sion about how to carve up the Jew­ish state even more to pro­vide a new home­land for more Arabs. After all, in 1947 the UN par­celed out more land […]
