That conference brought 70+ nations together to discuss...

The U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly approves House Resolution 11 (full embed at bottom) which criticizes not only anti-Israel UN Security Council Resolution 2334, but also the U.S. abstention.

It was the criticism of the abstention that split Democrats, with several speakers claiming Republicans were politicizing support for Israel in Congress. Several speakers...

Probably the one columnist I have critiqued more than any other in my blogging career is Thomas Friedman of The New York Times.

Friedman, one-time NY Times Jerusalem bureau chief, is considered The Times’ go-to expert on the Middle East, globalization and environmental issues.

However, when reading Friedman’s columns, it’s easy to see...

The Israelis say that they have “ironclad” information that the Obama administration pushed the anti-Israel UN Security Council resolution passed on December 23, to which the U.S. abstained. Some public evidence supporting the accusation was summarized in my post last night.

The Obama administration denials are very Clintonian, phrased in ways to...

Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen is no conservative, and certainly no fan of Donald Trump. The headline of a column he wrote during the campaign, after all, was “Trump’s Hitlerian disregard for the truth.”

Which makes his column of today, “Thanks to no-drama Obama, American leadership is gone,” which absolutely rips the...

I’ve been warning that Obama’s passage of the recent anti-Israel UN Security Council resolution was not necessarily the “final” jab at Israel.
