Obama wants to give caprice a chance

April 9, 2015  •  Jerusalem Post

Precisely a week ago, Barack Obama stood in the Rose Garden at the White House and triumphantly declared that a nuclear deal had been reached with Iran.

But as troubling details about the agreement continue to emerge, even as Tehran and Washington offer sharply differing accounts of what was agreed upon, the public is still scratching its collective head and wondering what it all means.

Happy Land of Israel Day!

March 30, 2015  •  Jerusalem Post

Today, the tenth day of the Hebrew month of Nisan, marks the anniversary of one of the most important events in the history of the Jewish people.

According to the Book of Joshua (4:19), it was on this day, exactly 3,327 years ago, that the people of Israel traversed the Jordan River and entered the Land of Israel as a nation for the first time.

Nonetheless, despite its significance, this momentous occasion is one of the least commemorated installments in our people's saga, and it is time for this to change.

Anti-Zionism is the real apartheid

March 24, 2015  •  Jerusalem Post

Although barely a week has passed since Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's reelection, Israel's enemies are already gearing up to besmirch the Jewish state.

A new governing coalition hasn't been formed yet, but that hasn't stopped the critics from invoking the "A" word – apartheid – to demonize the country's democratically-elected administration even before it takes office.

Take, for example, a column in a major South African newspaper, under the headline "Isolate the Israelis and their apartheid," which warned that, "The Israeli people have spoken, and their choice is occupation and apartheid. The world must respond with isolation."

Netanyahu's mandate to build

March 19, 2015  •  Jerusalem Post

What a remarkable turn of events. After months of unprecedented media attacks and unflattering polls, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu emerged from Tuesday's elections with a victory as resounding as it was incontestable.

You could almost hear the man in the White House yell in exasperation from across the ocean as the results came in throughout the night and the Likud's lead continued to grow.

US President Barack Obama's certain dismay at the outcome was exceeded perhaps only by that of the leftwing media, which could barely contain its shock at the realization that Israel's voters have minds of their own and refuse to march to their monotonous drumbeat.

Netanyahu: the Comeback Kid

March 17, 2015  •  Jerusalem Post

Going in to today's balloting, Benjamin Netanyahu was Israel's Prime Minister and, if the exit polls on Israel's main television stations prove accurate, he will not be looking for a new job any time soon.

After months of trailing the Zionist Union party at the polls, Netanyahu's Likud pulled off a stunning come-from-behind victory.

Despite the disgraceful way in which Israel's left-wing media went after the premier and his family in a thinly-veiled attempt to topple him, Netanyahu emerged on top, with the Likud tying or edging out the Zionist Union in all three television exit polls.
