Defeating Radical Islam

The best approach is to not fully defeat ISIS but limit them to a small strategic spot in the Middle East – one chosen by us. One of the major obsessions in the current US presidential campaign is with defeating Islamic State or, as Donald Trump says, “defeating radical Islam.” It is impossible to defeat…

The DNC Hackers and Their Backers

It appears now that the Russians are making a bold attempt to get a finger in the US election pie. We will see who comes up with the plum when the polls close on November 8, 2016. Confusion, last week thought to be a poster child of the Republican National Convention, has found a fissure…

Disney World, Donald Trump

A single shooter made history early Sunday morning in Orlando, Florida when he entered a gay night club and opened fire with an assault rifle. When the carnage ended, fifty-three had been wounded and fifty people lay dead, including the Islamic terrorist, Omar Mateen.

Ronald Reagan in Iran

The upcoming presidential election between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton seems to carry with it the presumption that the Republican Party is better for Israel and the Middle East. That is not necessarily factual. Ronald Wilson Reagan was a great president of the United States—but not when it came to his dealings with…

Crime Pays

The calm of a Wednesday afternoon in an upscale restaurant at the Sarona Market in Tel Aviv was shattered by the sound of gunfire. Two well-dressed men rose determinedly from the table at which they sat and opened fire on the unsuspecting patrons killing four and seriously wounding five others. One of the two perpetrators…

John Henry Patterson, Friend of Zion

One of the men highlighted at the new Friends of Zion Heritage Center and museum is John Henry Patterson, godfather of the late Jonathan Netanyahu, brother of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  In the elder Netanyahu’s home a silver cup with the inscription, “To my Godson, Jonathan Netanyahu,” held a special place. Patterson was born in…

Deceit Surrounding Iran Nuclear Deal

Revelations earlier this month indicate that the Obama administration began the Iran nuclear arms negotiations, not as first indicated—in 2013 after the elections of more “moderate” Iranians—but in 2011 under the presidency of hardliner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. This admission was made after a section of missing video from the 2013 press conference was found announcing the…

Happy Days are Here Again

With U.S. presidential elections in the offing, the question has become: What will the future hold for Israel and the U.S.? To answer that, one must first take a look at conditions in the Middle East today where a devastating collapse has taken place since the wishful days of the Arab Spring. Those revolutions wreaked…

Obama’s Peace Partner—Iran

Revelations earlier this month indicate that the Obama administration began the Iran nuclear arms negotiations, not as first indicated—in 2013 after the elections of more “moderate” Iranians—but in 2011 under the presidency of hardliner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. This admission was made after a section of missing video from the 2013 press conference was found announcing the…

Obama’s Legacy and Israel

President Barack Obama has only a few months left in the White House. Meanwhile, the Israeli government is waiting to hear if Mr. Obama will okay a new memorandum of understanding military package that would send billions to Israel in aid. This is exacerbated by the anxiety surrounding a possible UN vote on the status…

Wounded in the House of My Friends

Palestinian terrorists struck at the heart of Israel on April 18 when a bus was blown up on the Hebron Road in the southern region of Jerusalem. The explosion caused another bus nearby to also catch fire. At least twenty people were maimed in the explosion, many seriously. Following the blast, journalist and television producer…

Eroding Evangelical Support for Israel

The 2016 Christ at the Checkpoint rally, sponsored this year by the Bethlehem Bible School, has birthed another controversial tweet by Evangelical author, Hank Hanegraaff. He wrote, “The holy land, holy city and holy temple have historical significance, but no longer have theological significance.” With only a cursory glance at the locale and title of…

Islamic Infidels

No Republican presidential candidate debate would be complete without a lecture on radical Islam. The narrative is that if you are a liberal, an Obama or Hillary lover, you will not utter the phrase “radical Islam.” It implies that America should be at war with radical Islam. I am a proud Republican, but after forty…
