Netanyahu AIPAC view from crowd

Yesterday, I felt like a stranger in an unholy land; embedding yourself inside an anti-Israel (and I would argue anti-Jew, for the most part) rally will do that to you.

Today, I feel like a guest welcomed into friendly territory and invited to stand on the front lines of a battle...

Bibi will address Congress Tuesday morning to discuss the dangers of a nuclear Iran.

Shut Down AIPAC Hezbollah Flag

Today, I braved an ice storm to video protests at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference in Washington, DC.

The nasty weather didn’t stop a group of around 60 anti-Israel activists from storming the steps of the Washington Convention Center and blocking at least one entrance to the conference grounds....

The administration continues in its attempt to marginalize Prime Minister Netanyahu ahead of his speech on Iran. And the efforts appear to be backfiring.

Jeffrey Goldberg tells some important truths in today’s column, Danger Ahead for Obama on Iran:

I’m fairly sure Netanyahu will deliver a powerful speech, in part because he is eloquent in...

In the various speeches I’ve given since the summer Gaza conflict, I’ve predicted that the conflict would not move the public opinion needle much, if at all. That, despite snap surveys over the summer which suggested potential weakening of support.

I also point out that some college campuses are anti-Israel bubbles, not...

Prof. Jacobson’s mentioned the editorial in the context of arguing that the likely deal is against “the best interests of the American people.”

Is the Palestinian Authority interested in peace? Although you probably knew the answer, we now have more proof that the PA directly rewards terrorism against Israel, and has developed a process to determine how much to reward terrorists based upon how serious the terror act was.

Edwin Black reported Friday that unsealed documents not only...

Going through some old bookmarks I never wrote about, I found Israel’s Fair-Weather Fans, an August 7, 2014, NY Times Op-Ed by Shmuel Rosner. The column is a rebuttal to liberal Jewish American critics worrying about the alienation of liberal American Jews from Israel.

It seems relevant today, as some Democrats...

There’s something bizarre about seeing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promoting himself in a lighthearted campaign ad; but the latest spot from the Likud party brings a nice slice of humanity into an otherwise-bitterly contested election, and offers up a laugh or two in the process.

Via the Israel National News:

David Goldman, aka Spengler, has written extensively about demography.

In 2011 we highlighted his argument that Israel is an emerging demographic superpower:

Like the vanishing point in a perspective painting, long-term projections help us order our perceptions of what we see in front of us today. Here’s one to think about, fresh from the...
