Stop the hoodlums hijacking our roads

Dec 14, 2018

The notion that a group’s cause is so salient and urgent that it justifies highhanded, dangerous disruption of the public square is offensive. It is selfish and ugly. Legislation should be passed to make road blockage punishable by major fines and criminal convictions, and the police should be empowered to wield significant force to clear the roadways.

The ultimate slap down of Obama

Nov 9, 2016

Americans weren’t interested in sustaining Obama’s policies through Hillary Clinton. Today’s real headline is “Trump thrashes Obama.”

Israel is the sane, stable democracy

Nov 4, 2016

Consider the situation in America to the situation in Israel on almost any foreign or domestic issue, and you’re forced to admit that, heck, Israel is in a better place….A lament for America, sullied by a loutish election campaign; and a comparative salute to Israel.

This is the concession speech that Donald Trump might give on US election night 11 days from now, if he can restrain himself just a bit. “I swear by the palms of my very hands – look, I truly have such excellent big hands – that my people won’t let Hillary get away with a rehash of Obama’s extremist agenda.”

In my political forecast for the year ahead, I see an Olmert pardon, Abbas resignation, Rubio victory, Netanyahu-Putin partnership, and more trouble from Obama.

Livni’s lamentable lawlessness

Nov 28, 2014

Leave a Comment

Tzipi Livni’s fanatic stance against the Jewish Nation State law is grounded in hypocrisy and political desperation. None of the objections to the law justify Livni’s self-serving antics and inflammatory rhetoric.

Israel Hayom’s Zionist Spring

May 27, 2014

Leave a Comment

Israel Hayom neither “endangers Israeli democracy” nor “threatens the integrity” of Israeli media.” Just the opposite: It brings much needed heterogeneity to the Israeli press.
