Gotta love that European Union

Old habits, it seems, die hard. European countries have a knack for restricting Jews to specific pales of settlement.

Palestinian Lies like Water

Jul 12, 2013

The Palestinian Authority considers water and waste as weapons against Israel, not as areas of cooperation with Israel. As a result, it wildly wastes water and pollutes Israel with sewage, while stealing water from Israel’s wells and pipelines and running around the world falsely accusing Israel of inequitable and discriminatory water policies.

Is Netanyahu planning a unilateral move?

Jun 28, 2013

Netanyahu seems desperate for diplomatic movement, and I sense that he is preparing to launch a unilateral Israeli initiative to concede significant parts of Judea and Samaria. Israel must not be enticed into West Bank withdrawals for fleeting international approval and short-term political gain.

Time for new strategic thinking

May 3, 2013

The Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies has been consistently ahead of the curve. Its experts have looked over-the-horizon and produced out-of-the-box policy recommendations, even when their conclusions were not always politically correct or well-received by mainstream pundits.

Dayenu! Enough!

I have a dream: Israelis awake from their slumber and say Dayenu: We have conceded enough for the sake of peace with the Palestinians.

First love, then war?

Is Obama smothering Israel with affection in order to clobber us with ultimatum? Will his soft love soon give way to spoonfuls of tough love? The president shouldn’t expect Israelis or Netanyahu to all-of-a-sudden become “pliant” because he gave a few good speeches in Jerusalem.
