PKK and Hamas: A tale of two terror camps

As Turkey supports Hamas and displays belligerence towards Israel, it’s time to examine problems Ankara has with the people whom it renamed “Mountain Turks” - aka the Kurds. , 2/20/2018, 7:01 PM

John Kerry Chamberlain, saving Israel from ifself...again

How many people realize that the names of most Palestinian Arab towns are proof that the Jews dwelled in Judea and Samaria before the Arab conquerors arrived? Even the name Jordan means "descends from Dan," one of the 12 tribes of Israel., 1/29/2018, 6:03 AM

Forget political correctness for a while

A history lesson: Jerusalem and the Jews - and Jerusalem and the Muslims. Just in time for Hanukkah., 12/12/2017, 11:01 AM

Israel Turns 65: Playing the Arab Name Game

Any group can divide itself into several sub-groups and demand a nation for each one. The Jews have only one state., 4/15/2013, 5:49 PM

Watch Out When Someone Says They Have Your Back

Obama's demands are downright suicide for Israel. And he knows it., 1/18/2013, 6:31 AM

Syria: Fears and Facts Get in the Way of Sympathy

I really want to care more about Syria but my fears and some nasty facts keep getting in the way. It is secular butchers vs. murderous Jihadists. Look at what is happening to the Kurds., 12/17/2012, 9:32 AM

Hijacking History

Learn the truth, starting with Tacitus: "Titus was appointed to complete the subjugation of Judaea...he commanded three legions ...amongst his allies were a band of Arabs, harboring towards the Jews...bitter animosity...", 9/26/2011, 9:41 AM

Damned if We do or Don't

Even then, in 2nd Temple times, it inflamed Vespasian's ire that the Jews were the only nation which had not submitted. So now the UN takes his place., 4/20/2011, 11:53 AM

Yes, You're Secretary of State

Hey Borat?Guess What?

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice met with Arafat?s slicker Fatah comrade, President Mahmoud Abbas, on January 14th and promised that she has heard Arab demands for a stronger American hand to guide peace efforts with Israel. In other words, it?s "throw the Jew down the well" time again., 1/22/2007, 12:07 PM

Between Egypt and Eilat

For Egypt to pretend that the Sinai itself is its assumed birthright, let alone adjacent Eilat, is a stretch., 1/1/2007, 10:53 PM

'They Show No Respect for Their Caesars'

Proclaiming yourself a god among pagans was one thing. They could just add Antiochus to a long list. But to do this among Jews, whose religion teaches that no man, regardless of how great, could be Divine, was explosive. , 12/18/2006, 1:45 PM

A Mid-Winter's Dream

A sense of fair play must put the birth of an economically viable Kurdish state - which was indeed promised after WWI, but aborted largely on behalf of British petroleum and Arab interests - ahead of creating yet other states for Arabs at the expenses of both the "Jew of the Nations" and the Kurds., 11/29/2006, 11:57 PM

Calling the Kettle Black

After the commotion and dust settled, and it was time to leave for my hotel, several carloads of Arab students followed me. Some members of my group decided it was best to keep me company that night. , 10/12/2006, 11:38 AM

Watch Out for the Set Up

The problem is the continuing tendency to portray the West's darling, Fatah's Mahmoud Abbas, and his fellow Arafatians as the good guys, whom Israel should be missing right now. We daily read about alleged ideological differences between the Hamas and the Fatah disembowelers of Jews., 10/3/2006, 2:27 PM

A Few Questions for Khatami

The day that you grant independence to Arabistan or Kurdistan will be the day that you gain the right to lecture and accuse Israel., 9/10/2006, 4:11 PM

Proportionality or Pay-Back?

The European Union issued a statement critical of Israel's alleged "disproportionate use of force.", 7/12/2006, 11:37 PM

Buzzing Latakia

Assad has given refuge to Hamas leaders, such as chief honcho Khaled Meshal, and the Jews dropped in to say "hello.", 7/5/2006, 11:17 PM

Long Live Arabistan!

The real place where justice for Arabs has not yet been addressed and still remains to be achieved is in - hold onto your seats - Iran., 5/14/2006, 10:00 PM

Well, Since You Brought It Up

Mahmoud Al-Zahar stated: "In this region we have faced Roman occupation, Persian occupation, Crusader occupation, British occupation - they are all gone. The Israeli enemy does not belong to the region. It does not belong to the region's history, geography or faith." Allow me to burst the bubble., 3/30/2006, 12:09 PM

Time to Clean House

Merely sitting and waiting for murderous, rejectionist enemies to make their next move, at their own convenience, is asking for trouble. This is not the first time Israel has suffered this way. , 12/29/2005, 11:36 PM

What's Your Plan B? - Part II

If America's ideal of a federalist state - which is a good one, but which Sunni Arabs mostly reject - collapses, then what's next for the Kurds? They have repeatedly been slaughtered over the decades in the wake of America's games in the region., 11/27/2005, 9:46 PM

What's Your Plan B? - Part I

Truth be told, the only source of stability America can count on in Iraq comes from the Kurds - the very folks our State Department has full intentions to betray yet again, as it has disgracefully done too often before., 11/24/2005, 2:06 PM

Time to Put Up or Shut Up

Hamas should be allowed to run in the upcoming Palestinian Arab elections. , 11/14/2005, 10:46 PM

Syria, Seriously

Had Syria not opposed America in Iraq, the Foggy Folks would be pressing forward with former Secretary of State James Baker's pledge to Assad the First, butcher of Damascus, of a total Israeli retreat from the Golan Heights. , 11/8/2005, 11:55 PM

Short and to the Point

So, the Jews' military intelligence served them well again, as they located yet another of the Arab butchers' leaders. And their common sense, as has happened too often in the past, went AWOL., 10/30/2005, 4:25 PM

I Believe It's Called "Sovereignty"

Look, it's obvious what the Arabs are up to. Even the State Department's Foggy Folks know this. That this, however, doesn't stop them and most of the rest of the world from making one demand after the other on the Jew of the Nations to accommodate the proposed 22nd state for the Arabs should also come as a shock to no one., 9/11/2005, 8:14 PM

Tread Carefully, Dear Arabs

Politically correct Gentiles and suicidal Jews should not read any further. Hear that, Yossi Beilin? Shimon Peres?, 8/31/2005, 6:40 PM

More Blackjack Lessons...

Doroteo Arango, a.k.a. Pancho Villa, murdered and terrorized Americans in several Mexico-US boundary states in the early part of the last century., 7/5/2005, 11:00 PM

Resolution to Kill the Resolution

Here's what President Ronald Reagan had to say about all of this on September 1, 1982: "In the pre-1967 borders, Israel was barely 10-miles wide... the bulk of Israel's population within artillery range of hostile armies. I am not about to ask Israel to live that way again." , 6/19/2005, 6:40 PM

Hanania's Unreal Reality

While later uttering some welcome common sense, he prefaced this by rehashing the same, time-worn, fractured fairy tales and toxic untruths with which Arabs have poisoned their own people for decades. Compared to Hamas & Co., Hanania may be a moderate, but everything is relative., 5/2/2005, 10:57 PM

Let's Create Another Middle Eastern State!

Well, the day has finally arrived. I now find myself in agreement with the secretary general of the Arab League., 3/29/2005, 11:57 AM


Many of the villages set up in the West Bank and elsewhere were settlements established by Arab settlers. , 3/15/2005, 1:26 PM

Bantustan Revisited

Before we proceed, it would be most useful to first find a regional map of the Middle East and North Africa. Try to find Israel without the aid of a magnifying glass. And if you can only find a map of the world, better use a microscope., 2/6/2005, 7:55 PM

Binx and Jahandir

Guess how the Iranians, so quick to criticize Israel (which has been trying hard to arrive at a truly fair compromise with the Arabs over such things as the West Bank), dealt with their own Arab problem?, 1/10/2005, 9:45 PM

"Never Call Me <I>That</I>"

Mr. President, Beware the Sweet Talk

Mr. President, please don't be sweet-talked into abandoning your friends. True, Arafat is gone, but his hate-filled legacy lives on. , 12/19/2004, 7:10 PM
