More hypocrisy on Syria

Nov 10, 2013

All the human rights moralizers are ignoring the frightening plight of Palestinians and Christians in the Syrian civil war. There is, alas, no anti-Israel angle to the story.

Kerry’s Antagonism Unmasked

Nov 8, 2013

Leave a Comment

John Kerry has effectively told the Palestinians that they should make sure the talks fail, and then Israel’s gonna get it. Kerry laid out the consequences for Israel of disobeying America (– no safety and no prosperity), but laid out no similar consequences for the Palestinians if they remain intransigent. So much for notion of an honest broker.

Oct 31, 2013

American capitulation to Iran?

Oct 11, 2013

Leave a Comment

Beware Obama’s emerging understandings with Iran. Heed his long-term goals of resetting America’s relations with the Muslim world, and don’t underestimate his willingness to undercut current allies (including Israel and Saudi Arabia) in the process.

The speech I want to hear from Netanyahu

Oct 3, 2013

Leave a Comment

Israel’s bright future emphatically does not depend on peace with the Palestinians, however desirable and important that may be. Israel will flourish even if the Palestinians refuse to make peace with Israel on reasonable terms.

Washington vs. Jerusalem on Iran

Oct 2, 2013

Leave a Comment

It is not “blind mistrust” of Iran or “militarism” or niggardly Israeli nay-saying that leads Israel to insist on complete dismantlement of the nuclear facilities in Iran, but rather hard-nosed realism and years of unfortunate experience with false and failed peace agreements.
