The Peace-Loving Promoters of War

That anyone should expect peace from Arab regimes invariably ruled by force and fraud is a phenomenon for a psychiatrist to study., 7/1/2004, 11:54 PM


Are you fed up with the host of politicians, academics and journalists who expatiate <I>ad nauseum</I> on Israel and its conflict with the Arabs or Muslims who call themselves "Palestinians"?, 5/31/2004, 8:12 PM

My Fellow Americans

I write to you from Jerusalem, where I have lived for almost 28 years punctuated by frequent lectures in the United States. I write to you as a former officer in the United States Air Force, as one who has some knowledge of war - and make no mistake, we Americans are at war, a war far more complicated and more difficult than the World Wars of the twentieth century. , 5/6/2004, 1:15 AM

Fool or Fraud?

Upon learning of what Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has accomplished in his meeting with President George W. Bush, I found myself wondering whether Mr. Sharon is a fool or a fraud. , 4/19/2004, 6:13 PM

Right-Wing Folly and Treachery

It took a reputed right-winger, Menachem Begin, to initiate the logically and empirically flawed policy of territory-for-peace. I say "logically" because that policy requires Israel to relinquish territory whenever the Arabs threaten war. I say "empirically" because that policy simply ignores the 1,400-year record of the mendacity and militancy of Arab-Islamic culture, its contempt and hatred of ", 4/16/2004, 12:18 AM

From George Orwell to Caroline Glick

George Orwell's insight into the mentality of England's left-wing intelligentsia very much applies to their Israeli counterparts, as Caroline Glick recently learned., 3/25/2004, 9:09 PM

The Real Antagonist

Arafat rejected this incredible offer not because that wily despot is dedicated to Israel's total annihilation - which he is; no, the basic reason is that Arafat is merely a proxy of Egypt. It is Egypt that will not accept the establishment of a Palestinian state, for that would hinder its own designs on the Land of Israel., 3/3/2004, 7:46 PM

Sharon v. the People

There is a great deal of disinformation floating around the United States and Europe concerning the people of Israel. I refer to the mischievous report that a majority of the Jews in this country support a Palestinian state. , 2/5/2004, 6:12 PM

Degradation and Redemption

Any sensitive soul knows that Israel is daily suffering humiliation. The murder or maiming of every Jew bears witness to this fact. But the murder and maiming of Jews is the consequence, directly or indirectly, of the degraded character of Israel?s government. , 1/25/2004, 5:54 PM

What Killed the Likud?

The Likud is dead. What killed it? , 1/19/2004, 6:50 PM

Behind the Sharon ?Peace? Plan

This is going to be a short article, folks, if only because there?s nothing behind the ?peace? plan that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon presented at the recent Herzilya Conference ? nothing besides intellectual flap-doodle and moral cowardice., 12/24/2003, 9:36 PM

Netanyahu?s Obscurantism

During his speech at the recent Herzliya Conference, Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared: ?The Declaration of Independence depicts Israel as both Jewish and democratic.? Let us examine this statement., 12/21/2003, 4:58 PM

Sharon Then and Now

What did Ariel Sharon think of Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres in March 1995, and why is it significant to know this?, 11/26/2003, 7:03 PM

Urgently Needed: Jews for a Godly Israel

All honor to Zionist organizations for a ?strong? as well as for a ?safe? Israel. They have exposed the duplicitous and deadly nature of the Oslo peace process. But do they adequately understand what will make Israel safe and strong? Indeed, perhaps their emphasis on a ?safe? or ?strong? Israel is counterproductive; perhaps such emphasis obscures the one thing needed to make Israel safe and strong, 11/20/2003, 9:29 PM

Regime Change in Israel

During the January 2003 national election campaign, I warned, as head of the Yamin Israel party, that the paramount issue confronting Israel was not a Palestinian state, but the diminishing Jewish character of the Jewish state. , 11/6/2003, 5:51 PM

In Defense of the <i>Haredim</i>

The <i>Haredim</i> have replaced the late Rabbi Meir Kahane as the <i>bette noir</i> of Israeli politics. A word in their defense may be revealing. , 11/3/2003, 5:45 PM


On March 31, 1995, when Yitzhak Rabin was Israel?s prime minister and Shimon Peres held the post of foreign minister, an article appeared in the <i>Jerusalem Post</i> entitled ?The Enemy Within?., 10/26/2003, 10:53 AM

A Question of Treason

The ?agreement? is, of course, illegal, since only the government has the authority to initiate and enter into agreements with foreign entities. Moreover, such an agreement is an attempted <i>coup d?etat</i>. In fact, it is quite possible that the Israelis involved in this agreement have violated the law of treason. I refer to sections 97, 99 and 100 of the Penal Law. Four kinds of acts are prohib, 10/19/2003, 6:40 PM


Few people have grasped the dynamics of anti-Semitism as well as Vladimir Jabotinsky. His understanding of Nazi anti-Semitism applies to Arabs living in, or in proximity to, Israel. Sad to say, but his insights are also relevant to anti-Semitism in the United States., 10/10/2003, 12:57 AM

You Don?t Reason With Despots or Fools

Faith in reason is the cornerstone of Jeffersonian democracy: ?Fix reason firmly in her seat and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion.? Rationalism is fine when dealing with sensible democrats, not with Islamic-Arab despots. , 8/18/2003, 8:17 PM

The Sword of the Prophet

When Jews and Christians, as well as Arabs, resisted his teachings, Muhammad declared: ?I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers,? and he urged his followers to ?smite [them] above their necks.? When the head of one of his enemies, Abu Jahl, was thrown before him, he jubilantly exclaimed that the spectacle pleased him better than ?the choicest camel in Arabia.? , 7/28/2003, 8:09 PM


The question before us, however, is this: Would the appointment of Arabs to governmental positions imbue them with a vested interest in preserving the Jewish character of the state? To think so is to abandon reason as well as empirical facts. , 7/24/2003, 12:03 PM

Murder in Israel

I do not believe another government in this world would tolerate the ideologically motivated murder of its citizens that have occurred in Israel since the September 1993 Oslo agreement. Nor do I believe the citizens of another country would tolerate such a government. , 7/13/2003, 10:40 PM

The Covenant of Death

"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it..." Thus begins the Covenant of Death, officially known as "The Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement" [Hamas]. To grasp the true nature of the war that is being waged against the Jewish State of Israel, and not only by the Arabs in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza, let us examine this Covenant of Death. , 7/2/2003, 10:48 PM

On Gratitude

Americans are going to be rudely disappointed if they expect any gratitude for having liberated the Iraqis from tyranny. Let me offer Israel's experience. , 6/27/2003, 12:10 AM


Despite the savagery of the Arab Palestinians, Sharon publicly declared in April 2001 that he does not think in ?black and white? terms. This moral obscurantism inhibits him from doing what every intelligent democratic leader or general has done throughout the history of warfare: paint the enemy black and thereby imbue one?s own people and soldiers with moral fervor and confidence in the justice o, 6/15/2003, 6:06 PM

?Prime Minister? Abu Mazen

This new direction in Abu Mazen?s peregrinations should not deflect attention from his periodic Moscow rendezvouses with his Communist mentor, Dr. Yevgeny Primakov, Russia?s most durable and talented manipulator of US/Middle East affairs. It was in Ramallah, in 1997, when Primakov told Arafat that Russia would be the first to recognize a Palestinian state. , 4/2/2003, 7:32 AM
