Just two days earlier, however, Martingayle had emailed the...

In a few days the world’s Christians and Jews will celebrate Easter and Passover. It’ll be a weekend of good food (and at my seder, plenty of good Israeli wine)—but most of all it’ll be an affirmation of freedom and faith, an expression of joy, hope and renewal.

While Israel denies spying on U.S. officials, as opposed to targeting the...

Between July 17 and August 5 of2014, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) destroyed 32 tunnels in Gaza — 100 kilometers of concrete-lined and accessorized passageways dug deep beneath the earth’s surface with openings near Israeli homes and kindergartens.

Israel and Obama

Since Netanyahu’s victory last week, the Obama administration has offered little more than a cold shoulder to Israel, and seems more interested in talking to Iran.

The fact that Israel is our best ally in the region is overlooked while Obama continues working on his so-called “non-binding agreement.”

Since we all tend to self-select on Twitter, it wasn’t a surprise that my timeline was filled with thrill for Benjamin Netanyahu’s surprisingly strong victory in the Israeli elections.

Sure, technically it was a win for Likud and the Israeli “right,” but it was all Netanyahu’s win on Twitter.

Charles Krauthammer began a 1999 column like this:

Having failed to topple Saddam Hussein or Slobodan Milosevic, Bill Clinton had to settle for Benjamin Netanyahu.

In a characteristic display of partisan glee, Clinton toasted political consultant Robert Shrum on Tuesday night (reports Lloyd Grove in The Washington Post) to congratulate him (and implicitly, the...
