Trump’s Recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital HELPS Mideast Peace

That’s right. All the conventional, in-the-box thinking you’re hearing about how President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel – which, de facto, it already is – and move the embassy there actually increases to prospects for an eventual negotiated settlement between the Israelis and Palestinians. Even supporters of the move who… Continue Reading

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… Continue Reading

Spicer Won’t Say Western Wall is in Israel

President Trump during the campaign suggested Jerusalem was part of Israel, stating unequivocally that he would move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. But that was just for Jewish and conservative Christian votes. Unless he was planning on moving the Israeli embassy to Palestine. Mark Levin has a good takedown of this whole… Continue Reading

Rabbi Presiding Over National Menorah Lighting Slams Obama UN Move

The rabbi in charge of the National Hanukkah Menorah lighting used the ceremony, held Sunday just steps from the White House, to criticize the Obama administration’s decision to allow the United Nations to pass a resolution condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank and portions of Jerusalem as illegal, the Washington Examiner reported. Rabbi Levi… Continue Reading

Obama Permits UN Resolution Condemning Israeli Settlements

In case my fellow Jews needed any more proof about which Party has Israel’s back. From the Washington Examiner: President Obama allowed a resolution condemning Israeli settlement construction in disputed Palestinian territory to pass through the United Nations Security Council, marking a dramatic change in U.S. policy just weeks before leaving office. The U.S. did… Continue Reading

White House Forgets that it Doesn’t Think Jerusalem is in Israel

The White House today accidentally did something pro-Israel by inadvertently sending out a transcript of President Obama’s Shimon Peres eulogy which listed Jerusalem as part of Israel. It was forced to send out this correction. White House policy is that Jerusalem belongs neither to the Palestinians nor the Israelis, and our embassy is in Tel… Continue Reading
