A Response to Prime Minister Netanyahu's Video about the Temple Mount

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's office just posted a video on Youtube blaming Palestinians for violence on the Temple Mount, despite Israeli pledges to maintain the status quo. Please watch this video before reading further.

 

Eleven Questions Hillary Clinton needs to answer about Haim Saban

Haim Saban and Sheldon Adelson were two of the biggest stars of the show at the Israeli-American Council's first conference yesterday.   Adelson, as you may recall, once advocated that the U.S. should start nuclear negotiations with Iran by dropping a nuke on an Iranian desert and threatening to nuke Tehran if Iran didn't roll over and give the U.S. and Israel everything they wanted.

An Open Letter to Indiegogo

I am greatly concerned by the Temple Institute's use of Indiegogo to raise $100,000 to draw up architectural plans for the construction of the Third Temple on the Temple Mount.  As you probably know, it will be located on what Muslims call the Haram al-Sharif (the Noble Sanctuary).  This is the third holiest site for Muslims around the world, and any attempt to build the Temple there will explode in violence.

An Open Letter to John Kerry Regarding Israel's Newly Announced Settlement

Dear Secretary Kerry:

Israel has just announced that it is grabbing 988 acres of land from five Palestinian villages in the West Bank to build a new settlement named Gvaot.  They claim that this is in response to kidnapping and murder of three teenagers earlier this summer.  The U.S. government has responded by saying that this is counterproductive to negotiating a two-state solution and meekly urging Israel to reverse its decision.

Could American Soldiers One Day Be Called On to Defend Israel's Settlements?

Could the U.S. one day find itself called upon in desperation by Israel to help it put down an uprising in the illegally occupied West Bank? The question seems preposterous. Israel is a military juggernaut. Neither the First nor the Second Intifada posed a serious military threat to Israel. And Israel has crushed Gaza repeatedly. The Palestinians are weak, and no matter what they do, they will never pose a real military threat to Israel. Assuming that Israel is willing to put up with international ostracism and the economic penalties imposed by the BDS movement there is nothing threatening its grip on the West Bank.

Did Hamas Ever Send Signals That It Might Change Its Charter?

Hamas's Charter is a bloody document that calls for the destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews. It considers all of the Palestinian Mandate, including Israel, to be part of an Islamic waqf, and no one has the right to give up an inch of this territory for peace. I have discussed Hamas's Charter in much more detail here.

A REAL Interview with Yousef Munayyer

Sean Hannity invited Yousef Munayyer on his show a few weeks ago to "discuss" the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.  I put the word "discuss" in quotations, because Hannity didn't allow much of a discussion.  It would be more accurate if I had written "yell at".  See for yourself.

 

Does Israel Have the Most Moral Army In the World?

How Israel Can Establish A Truce: Institute a Unilateral Withdrawal And Challenge Hamas To Hold A Vote

Israel provoked the latest round of rocket attacks from Gaza when it overreacted to the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens by a rogue element of Hamas. The moral responsibility for provoking a war that has led to nearly 650 deaths in Gaza rests mainly with Israel. Hamas does indeed share some responsibility for the war.

On Gorillas, Basketball, and a Possible Palestinian Lynch Mob

Times of Israel reporter Avi Issacharoff reported on Friday that he had been attacked by a Palestinian lynch mob as he was covering Nakba Day protests in the West Bank town of Beitunia.  Issacharoff claims he was "seconds away from being beaten to death" and only the fast action of two Palestinian Authority security personel saved him.  Read his report now.
