Ahead of Vice President Joe Biden’s trip to Israel, The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week that the White House is considering new efforts to revive the Middle East peace process.

Two ongoing news stories that broke this past week show the Obama administration’s contrasting styles towards America’s top Middle East ally and a rogue nation that continues to flout international law. Obama and his top officials have no problem playing hardball with Israel, but become like Rex the dinosaur in Toy...

This week Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu traveled to Washington for his first meeting with President Barack Obama since the passage of the Iran nuclear deal. It was their first face-to-face conversation in over a year, and while DC journalists largely pitched the meeting as a welcome relief to the normally-tortured...

Yesterday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hosted a webcast with American Jewish participants urging them to oppose the Iran nuke deal. His message reached an estimated 10,000 people, and served as a counter to propaganda spread by pro-deal activists plying the media with misinformation about the motive behind Israel’s opposition.

The Obama administration and its supporters try to paint opposition to the Iran nuke deal as a Bibi Netanyahu problem.

That’s a convenient excuse, because it allows Obama to play the Democrat loyalty card among members still upset about Bibi’s appearance in Congress. It also plays into “Israel Lobby” demonization,...

At least no one got hurt this time.

But Gaza Flotilla III was a complete flop.

Meant to break Israel’s perfectly legal naval blockade of Gaza (more on legality here), designed to stop Iranian shipments of weapons, the flotilla avoided the disaster of Gaza Flotilla I, in which 9 people were killed when...

When the Israeli elections were held in March, the result widely was seen as a huge win for Benjamin Netanyahu, because his Likud Party outperformed.

Last week’s “nuke deal” with Iran has drawn criticism both at home and overseas as being less of a “deal” and more of a capitulation to a belligerent enemy of freedom. (I wouldn’t argue with those criticisms one bit.) It has caused many to call into question President Obama’s motives for...

THE “KEY parameters” for an agreement on Iran’s nuclear program released Thursday fall well short of the goals...

None of those issues justified the complete fury coming from the administration. It just didn’t add up.
