Canada’s important support for Israel

Jan 10, 2014

Leave a Comment

Canada’s backing of Israel is comprehensive, concrete and weighty, setting a principled, pro-Israel precedent and example. Prime Minister Harper and his team should be warmly welcomed in Jerusalem this month as super-valuable allies and trusted friends.

Rejecting false linkage

Jan 1, 2014

Leave a Comment

America is not the only party that can play linkage politics. Netanyahu should now be saying to Obama: If you’re not going to protect Israel and the region from the Iranians, expect less cooperation from me on other files. You screwed Israel over Bushehr, so don’t expect me to give you Yitzhar.

The Geneva Accord: A Tale of Two Clashing Perspectives

Nov 24, 2013

Leave a Comment

From Israel’s perspective, the accord is a strategic defeat for the West, since it legitimizes Iran’s status as a nuclear threshold state. As a result, US credibility on Iran is shot so badly in Israeli eyes that, alas, almost nothing American leaders can say will now allay Israeli fears.
