Netanyahu Wins, Obama Loses

It was profoundly weird to watch coverage of the Israeli elections Tuesday. At one point, I saw CNN’s John King doing exit poll results as if this was a U.S. presidential election and I was like, “What the hell is this?” What it was, of course, is that American Democrats (including members of President Obama’s […]

Bibi Speaks, Pelosi Weeps

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to a joint session of the U.S. Congress today, over the objections of Democrats who said . . . Well, what, exactly? The basis of their objection was something like, “The Republicans didn’t ask nice and Bibi’s just two weeks away from re-election.” And I’m like, “So?” It is […]

U.S.-Backed Subversion in Israel?

Alana Goodman at the Free Beacon reports astonishing news: A U.S. State Department-funded group is financing an Israeli campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and has hired former Obama aides to help with its grassroots organizing efforts. U.S.-based activist group OneVoice International has partnered with V15, an “independent grassroots movement” in Israel that is […]

The New Exodus

The four Jews killed in an attack on a kosher market in Paris will be buried in Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced and, despite absurd leftist hysteria about “Islamophobia,” we need not doubt who is targeted by the real climate of hate in France: A survey of French Muslims in 2014 found a community […]

The Pro-Hamas Mob in L.A.

Two weeks ago, Professor Donald Douglas of American Power covered a Communist anti-police rally in Anaheim. Today, Donald took his camera to the streets of downtown Los Angeles, where the same crew — the Stalinist splinter sect known as A.N.S.W.E.R. — helped organize an anti-Israel march and rally that was full of vile and hateful […]

Israel/Gaza Ceasefire Collapses, Along With Joe Scarborough’s Credibility

The 72-hour ceasefire fell short by about 70 hours: A 72-hour humanitarian cease-fire agreed upon by Israel and Hamas collapsed shortly after it took effect Friday morning. Mortar shells fired from within the Gaza Strip landed near a border-regioning town some two hours after the truce deal brokered by the United States and the EU […]

The Gaza War Continues

No ceasefire: Israel will press its air and ground offensive in the Gaza Strip, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday, preparing his country for a longer and bloodier campaign and dashing hopes that the three-week-old conflict would end soon. Rebuffing appeals from President Obama, the United Nations and others for an immediate cease-fire, Netanyahu said […]

“Sorry, Barack: I Can’t Give The Israeli People ‘The Stevens’,” Said Bibi

by Smitty You can almost forgive #OccupyResoluteDesk for wanting the Israelis to pull their punches, given Obama’s oblivious non-command of leadership: President Barack Obama phoned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu late Sunday, demanding that he agree to an immediate ceasefire “that ends hostilities now and leads to a permanent cessation of hostilities, based on the […]
