It is terribly difficult to be a politician and to be totally irrelevant at the same time. If you doubt this, just ask Tzipi Livni.

While President Obama was pouring lighter fluid into his palm and lighting it (metaphorically speaking) over Israel’s borders, and Bibi was headed to DC, Livni was trashing him back in Israel.

I’m well aware that he is more popular by far in the US than in Israel, but his popularity...

Arlington National Cemetery this photo tells the story.



I’ve got some friends whose names are etched on the Viet Nam Memorial. And there are those whose memories are bittersweet. But we thank God for the ones who paid the ultimate price and those who stood with them throughout and with theirs afterward.

Pray, this Memorial Day for our men and women in uniform.

Congressman Allen West, (R. FL) exposes the Obama regime’s attempt to give government contracts to his pals while punishing those who support his opposition.

When rules are made under righteous leadership that is one thing. We don’t believe that – based on their record of punishing their “enemies” – Americans should trust the Obama administration with giving records before...

Israel agreed on Sunday to release millions of dollars in suspended tax transfers to the Palestinian Authority after receiving assurances the money will not fall into the hands of the Hamas.

There was a great upheaval in the UN, and the Europeans had promised that they would make up the approximately $88 million shortfall. That didn’t happen, and the Arab states were screaming bloody murder about it, but as usual, they weren’t...

Approximately 500 pounds of cocaine were kept from the streets of Israel when police raided a coffee shipping container in Ashdod.

Originating in Columbia, the bags of coffee contained cocaine as a part of the shipment.

Two suspects were arrested and will appear at a remand hearing at a Rishon Letzion court. They will almost certainly not be released on any kind of bail.

The operation was carried out by the...

“Israel "is going to require a credible answer from the Palestinians about the role that Hamas is going to play in the new government, and whether a Palestinian partner and interlocutor can credibly say it recognizes Israel's right to exist," Ben Rhodes, deputy national security advisor for strategic communications, told reporters.” (

You often wonder if your counsel is ever going to be heeded. After Bibi...

(That quote was the way a panhandler approached me in Times Square a few years back.)

Ahmed Qurei was for years the Palestinian poster boy for corruption. Arafat actually kicked him out of his government position when he thought doing so would take the heat off of himself. Of course, in a little while Qurei was back in Arafat’s good graces.

Now the World Bank has done a survey of how the PA is doing and given them...

As you can see from the posture of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he considers himself among friends. As you will be able to tell from the following text of his speech to the Congress on 5.24, he is a friend to America.

This speech was one that we wanted to add our commentary to in places. Perhaps a quick explanation, an insight, whatever. We have provided the entire text, however, for your perusal.

As usual with...

In the hour long video you are going to see the newest Iron Dome system that is equipped to stop the rockets from both Hamas in Gaza and the ones from Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Before you groan about the time and/or the word “briefing” and think this will be just another boring, never-ending talk by a bean counter, I suggest you hold your fire. Near the end you will even be treated to once-classified video (use the full screen...

Elliott Abrams is no novice when it comes to foreign affairs. He has served more than one US President and is listened to by conservative Israel leaders. Last month he did a piece for the Weekly Standard that is worth reading, although some events have transpired since then, primarily the so-called Unity Agreement between Fatah and Hamas.

His suggestions on what Netanyahu could do in the future...
