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>"

One particular story that especially came to mind occurred during Dad's participation in the Rommel Campaign in North Africa (he was involved in many others over the four years that he served in World War II). , 12/28/2004, 3:44 PM

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

April Magic - Part II

Despite all of the history of the disputed territories, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon sought to break the Arab-Israel log jam with his April 2004 unilateral withdrawal proposals. , 11/28/2004, 6:06 PM

April Magic - Part I

Lacking any Anwar Sadat or King Hussein-type to deal with among Palestinian Arabs (i.e., Arab leaders willing to allow for a viable Israel still existing on the morrow after a peace treaty is signed), Arik decided to make a unilateral move to break the stalemate while also supposedly enhancing Israel's overall security position. , 11/25/2004, 9:38 PM

Kassam, Qassam - What's in a Name?

Hamas' hero -- like most other "native Palestinians" -- was born elsewhere. In his case, Latakia, Syria. , 11/18/2004, 12:19 AM

Neither the Falklands Nor Mosul

Now that Mr. Bush was reelected, it's payback time for America's primary supporter in Iraq. The Brits, like the rest of an historically anti-Semitic Europe, seek to gain or regain Arab favor at the expense of Israel., 11/10/2004, 9:15 PM

Bury His Despicable Bones in Cairo

It may have just been a way for the murderous Egyptian imp to get out of his hole in Ramallah. , 10/31/2004, 4:20 PM

More Than Slogans

Senator John Kohn -- I mean, Kerry -- recently told a group of Jews in Florida that he shouted from the top of Masada the ultimate Jewish slogan of defiance of a largely hostile world: <I>"Am Yisrael Chai!"</I> - "The people of Israel live!" , 10/21/2004, 9:29 PM

Datanic Hauntings

Over three millennia ago, when Jews were fleeing Egyptian bondage en route to their Land of Promise, Datan helped lead the revolt of Korach, proclaiming to frightened, wandering Israelites the virtues of a fertile Egypt from which Moses had led them. And the same way some Jews mistakenly found the trappings of ancient Egypt alluring back then, others have recently behaved likewise. Another tragic , 10/12/2004, 9:12 PM

With All Due Respect, Sir...

While for those who care about Israel's future, Dubya still appears to be the better choice given that the Arabs and their supporters, both in America and around the world, want the other guy to win, actions such as his United Nations' remarks make the choice -- in terms of Middle Eastern policy, at least -- more difficult than it could or should otherwise be., 10/1/2004, 1:00 PM

We Have Sinned Against You

In terms of Arab-Israeli politics, Jews have been accused of countless sins by much of the world today. But, as is noted in terms of yet another Jewish holiday, Passover, while it is regrettable that any hardship had to be suffered even by enemies who would destroy us, as we symbolically remove drops of wine from our cups at the Seder dinner to diminish our joy of deliverance, we offer no apologie, 9/19/2004, 9:13 PM

The Punditry Of Amnesiacs

In light of repeated acts of mega-barbarism deliberately directed against Israeli innocents (many proudly claimed by Yasser Arafat's own Al-Aqsa affiliate), it is time to take a closer look at some of the underlying issues that have frequently been ignored., 9/13/2004, 11:25 PM

Evolution of the Suicide Bomber

While the year 2004 has brought other issues back to the front burner that also demanded immediate attention (the future of the Gaza Strip and the rest of the disputed territories, as just an example), it's worth rethinking another all-too-real fact of life that has driven events over recent years, especially since the onset of the era of the so-called Oslo "peace". I'm speaking, of course, about , 8/24/2004, 10:32 PM

A La Alaa

Neither Arafat nor Qurei' -- or, for that matter, any other Palestinian Arab leader with any clout -- envision a long term, Jewish Israel in the neighborhood. Qurei' just believes more "delicate" means are needed to bring this about. Forcing Israel, for example, to absorb millions of real or alleged Arab refugees in a "right of return" would win more support abroad than blowing Jews apart on buses, 8/18/2004, 11:43 PM

What Would Ibn Khaldun Say?

Now assume that there were fifty, not five, million Israeli Jews who had far more political clout on the world scene than they actually have. Take this a step further, and imagine that Israel then demanded that if nations wished to have relations with itself, they would have to forever deny Arabs any hope of statehood and national dignity., 8/8/2004, 9:20 PM

Peanut Brittle - Part II

Carter speaks of the territories as if Palestinian Arabs (many of whom were newcomers -- settlers -- themselves in Palestine) had exclusive rights there. Contrary to popular current protestations, these are not "occupied Palestinian Arab lands." , 8/2/2004, 6:46 PM

Peanut Brittle - Part I

Let's get something straight right from the get-go. I'm a registered Democrat (though I have voted and will vote otherwise again on occasion) and second a few of the same environmental issues that Jimmy Carter championed while in the Oval Office. I voted for him. So I'm not automatically triggered to be nauseated by the man., 8/1/2004, 4:43 PM


<I>Notice: Politically correct Gentiles and suicidal Jews should not read any further. Hear that, Yossi Beilin, Shimon?</I> , 7/7/2004, 7:39 PM

Hunting Quail and Sitting Ducks

With all that's been going on in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, the situation in Iraq, worries about Iranian nukes and thousands of Hizbullah rockets in Lebanon aimed, just a stone's throw away, at northern Israel, the Syrian front had been pushed to the back burner for the time being. This, of course, was possible due to Syria's expulsion from much of the Golan Heights since the 1967 Six Day War. , 6/29/2004, 11:38 PM

Eternal Truths - Part II

Let's now turn to the Arab attempt to become the new Jews. , 6/22/2004, 6:00 PM

Eternal Truths - Part I

Arabs have spent decades trying to convince the world that they are both the old and the new Jews. , 6/21/2004, 5:38 PM

Beware of Arabs Bearing Gifts

As a decades long student of classical history, as well as contemporary Middle Eastern Affairs, the chance to see the tragic clash between Achilles and Hector on the big screen was too much to resist. , 6/8/2004, 11:25 PM

Talking Turkey About Turkey - Part II

With all that's happening with the Iraq mess right now, and in light of recent developments regarding the Turks, it's time to put things into a broader perspective. , 5/31/2004, 8:08 PM

Talking Turkey About Turkey - Part I

The same folks who have declared over one-fifth of their own non-Turk Kurdish population (over ten million people) to be "non-existent" in the past (they're really just "Mountain Turks", don't you know) and have taken steps to outlaw Kurdish language and culture (Arabic is one of Israel's two official languages), are allegedly mad at Israel for going after the Arab terrorist infrastructure in Gaza, 5/30/2004, 5:09 PM

Nakba Encore: A Primer

Is a victim any less a victim because his tragedy has been the longest enduring? , 4/26/2004, 5:58 PM

Now There's a Shocker

The headline of the Associated Press report in <I>The Daytona Beach News-Journal</I> on April 16, 2004 spoke of widespread rage among the Arabs following President Bush's positive reaction to Prime Minister Sharon's Gaza disengagement plan. Papers all over the world were carrying similar stories., 4/19/2004, 5:49 PM

No Time For Foggy Doublespeak

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is visiting Washington. He brings with him a controversial plan to yield Gaza -- used since the days of the Pharaohs to bring death and destruction into Israel proper -- and some other areas in Judea and Samaria as well, to those who will surely continue to murder Jews and aim for the destruction of their nation even after such a proposed withdrawal takes place. Sharon , 4/14/2004, 2:20 PM

The One, Ten Punch

So they finally took out the murderous imp ? hundreds of buried and thousands of maimed Jews too late. I know, he was a "militant" and not really a terrorist, meaning his victims were Jews not Gentiles., 3/28/2004, 6:28 PM

Thinking Jerusalem...

a mention of Jerusalem itself is no where to be found in the Muslim holy book...interesting, since it was recorded in many other places besides the writings of the Jews themselves for over 1,500 years before the rise of Islam. Religious claims of both Christians and Muslims to Jerusalem exist primarily because of those religions' links to the Jews. , 3/18/2004, 6:32 PM

Chutzpah...Arab Style

The Jordan-Palestine connection is just one of many well-documented facts (not "Zionist propaganda") completely ignored or distorted by Arab spokesmen and, unfortunately, little known by the rest of the world. Arabs typically claim Jews got 78% of all of the land, and leading newspapers typically prepare segments on the Middle East ignoring this crucial Jordan-Palestine connection., 3/16/2004, 5:43 PM

The Chicken or the Egg?

Let's get something straight right from the start. The problems that both Abbas and Rantisi had earlier cited ? Israeli incursions, assaults, checkpoints, travel restrictions, and other measures that admittedly cause inconvenience and frustration ? were eggs laid and hatched as a result of Arab rejectionist hens raised on both of their farms. The Palestinian Authority and Hamas have simply been pl, 3/10/2004, 8:06 PM

Makos, Kristof, and Bike Week

I guess this piece had to be written. Not that I'm superstitious or anything. But what I am about to tell you would have had to have been one heck of a coincidence. I hope I do it justice. , 3/3/2004, 6:57 PM

Too Predictable: Take 2

Arabs know that their own wives and children will not be deliberately targeted on buses, in restaurants, shopping centers, etc. So what I will state next, I regret, but will say anyway. , 2/24/2004, 9:18 PM

In Defense of Bantustan

While all people should be able to live in dignity, this applies to Jews also. This, unfortunately, proved often to be impossible both in the Christian West, where Jews were considered to be the Deicide people (and treated accordingly), as well as in the Muslim East, where they were considered to be persecutors of prophets and <i>kelbi yahudi</I> ? "Jew dogs." Hence, the necessity for the rebirth , 2/22/2004, 10:15 PM

Mel, Meet Irineos

Altalena Revisited

News reports are circulating about recent "behind-the-scenes" peace plans that have supposedly been worked out by left-wing Israelis and some Palestinian Arab politicians and academics, notably Yasser Abed Rabbo and Sari Nusseibeh. , 11/17/2003, 5:42 PM
