J’accuse la France

Jan 16, 2015

Leave a Comment

France’s unbalanced approach to the Arab-Israeli conflict has created a much-too-comfortable environment for the resurgence of anti-Semitic violence in France. The bias against Israel in French Mideast policy is a benchmark for the (im)morality of France, and, alas, a trigger for attacks in France against Jews.

Doing what is needed to improve Israel’s personal and national security does not require any apologies. Israel ought not weakly whimper away. What has happened to our national grit? Time to rev-up a national outcry and wake-up our government.

Abbas is busted as a ‘partner’

Nov 6, 2014

Abbas spews out extremist vitriol and seeks the criminalization of Israel in international fora, and legitimizes terrorism when speaking to Palestinians. Yet his critics are disregarded, just as Arafat’s critics were dismissed during the Oslo heyday.
