In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

Bernie Sanders: Israel Run by a “Right Wing . . . Racist Government”

So therefore, ergo, the Israelis who just elected him are a bunch of racists as well. The Israelis are surrounded by people who do not merely want their own state, but who want to destroy Israel. That’s why they have, now five times, voted in a man, Benuamin Netanyahu, with a sober view of the situation. Incredible to me as a Jew that the most

Netanyahu: Trump Embassy Move Will Be Remembered By Jews “Throughout the Ages”

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu Monday compared President Trump’s actions toward Israel to those of British Lord Balfour and Harry S. Truman, who played key roles in establishing the state of Israel, saying that moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem would be remembered by Jews “throughout the ages.” He said the U.S. Israeli alliance has never been stronger, at least in the past 40 years. Netanyahu

Trump to the Israelis and Palestinians: Let’s Make a Deal

President Trump Tuesday offered up the dubious proposition that the Palestinians are ready for peace with Israel. As far as I’ve observed, the Palestinians are always ready to make a deal, until it comes time to make a deal. And they suggest they are ready to live with Israel, but teach their children to throw the Jews into the sea. During an appearance with Palestinian

Netanyahu to Kerry: Don’t Blame Israel

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ripped Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech on Israeli-Palestinian relations Wednesday, criticizing the nation’s top diplomat for blaming Israel for the region’s problems, the Washington Examiner reported. “Like the resolution that John Kerry advanced at the UN (Security Council), John Kerry gave a skewed speech against Israel. For over an hour, Kerry dealt obsessively with the settlements and almost didn’t

But Ugandan President Museveni Digresses

I found this recently and thought you might want to see it, just since it is one of the strangest things I’ve seen recently. Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu was in Uganda early last month to mark the 40th anniversary of the Israeli raid on Entebbe, which freed Israeli hostages being held by then-President Idi Amin. At the ceremony, current Ugandan President Museveni delivered the most absurd

Video || Netanyahu Blasts Iran Deal at UN

Here is Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cogently outlining for a non-listening world the problem with President Obama’s Iran deal: That if Iran does what it is supposed to, it will remain a tyranny, continue its aggression, and eventually build nuclear weapons: “When bad behavior is rewarded, it only gets worse,” Netanyahu said. Here, Netanyahu decries the “deafening silence” of the UN in response to

Netanyahu: “We Will Always Defend Ourselves”

And now we must turn to the question, what will Israel do now that Iran is guaranteed nuclear weapons under today’s deal? I’ve read some reports that Israel has already waited too long and that it would be difficult for it to take out the Iranian nuclear weapons program. I’ve also read that if the Israeli air force dropped by Iran for a visit, it could

Obama Calls to Give Bibi Hell

Well, President Obama finally called Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu Thursday evening to “congratulate” him on his election victory, but it wasn’t your typical congratulatory call. It was congratulations, Obama style. It’s a little like congratulating someone on their wedding by saying, I hope you get divorced soon. During the call, according to the New York Times, Obama threatened to change – presumably not in a

White House to Bibi: You Can’t Take it Back

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest today declined to accept Israeli Prime Minister Netayahu’s reversal today of his earlier rejection – which had been made during the final moments of a campaign – of a two state solution, saying the White House “reevaluation” of its stance toward Israel would go forward. Why? I’ll tell you why. Because the White House has wanted to do this

Why Israel Should be Very Worried

Let me tell you three things about President Obama that auger very poorly for Israel. 1. Obama is, at heart, an internationalist. It pains him to make the United States the stumbling block in front of international opinion. Now he feels he is free to join with the consensus of the other internationalists at organizations such as the UN and pressure a rogue nation into “proper” standards

Obama Aides Won’t Rule Out Lessening Support for Israel

Top Obama administration officials refused Wednesday to rule out a reduction in long-time U.S. support for Israel, including refusing to fend off resolutions at the United Nations hostile toward Israel, according to Politico. The possible – I’d say all-but-certain – change in stance comes in the wake of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s reelection and his vow that he would not allow a Palestinian state during his
