  Bipartisan support for Israel has been one of the greatest casualties of US President Barack Obama's assault on the Jewish state. Today, as Republican support for Israel reaches new heights, support for Israel has become a minority position among Democrats.  Consider the numbers. During Operation Cast Lead -- eleven days before Obama's inauguration -- the House of Representatives passed Resolution 34 siding with Israel against Hamas. The resolution received 390 yea votes, five nay vo…

In this week's Tribal Update from my Hebrew language satire website Latma, President Obama gives an interview where he breaks into song when Ronit and Elhanan probe him about his feelings for Israel. The show also discusses the anti-Zionist Left's attack on Elie Wiesel for insisting that Jerusalem is a Jewish city, and gives an in-depth look at how the Israeli media decides who gets fingered in corruption scandals. Enjoy!

 If safeguarding international security is the chief aim of US President Barack Obama's foreign policy, then at some point he can be expected to change course in the Middle East. For today, Obama faces the wreckage of every aspect of his Middle East policies. And largely as a consequence of his policies, the region moves ever closer to war. In Iraq, Obama's pledge to withdraw all combat forces from the country by the summer has emboldened the various forces vying for control of the cou…

I've been remiss in posting the recent editions of the Tribal Update from my Hebrew language media satire website Latma. Since prolonged travel home to Israel from a month-long sojourn in the US prevented me from writing my column for Friday's Jerusalem Post, now is a good opportunity to bring on the last three Tribal Updates. This week's show features the Palestinian Minister of Uncontrollable rage Tawil Fadiha visiting UN Headquarters in New York and Barak Obama's Reality Perception Advis…

In honor of Israel's 62nd Independence Day, and in light of President Obama's repeated claims that US interests are best served by distancing itself from Israel, I decided to write the following essay explaining why a strong Israel is essential for US national security. Yom Ha'atzmuat Sameach.    Israel's status as the US's most vital ally in the Middle East has been so widely recognized for so long that over the years, Israeli and American leaders alike have felt it unnecessary to ex…

Here is a link to a slobbering love fest interview of Haaretz's terrorist loving "reporter," Gideon Levy with none other than Hamas's website. Al Qassam, is the website of the Ezzedin al Qassam Brigades information office. You may recall the name Ezzedin al Qassam as the name of the Hamas terror brigades that vie for credit with Fatah's Al Alksa Martyrs' Brigade after every suicide bombing and roadside shooting and rocket attack. Hamas's "reporter," describes Levy as,"a rare voice of courage an…

Over the past two weeks Israel has been rocked by a major espionage scandal in which the Haaretz newspaper plays a central role. To understand the significance of the scandal, it is worthwhile to preface a discussion of it with a look at a smaller story Haaretz developed this week.  On Sunday, Haaretz's Amira Hass reported that in January, the IDF published a new military order that paves the way for the mass expulsion of illegal aliens from Judea and Samaria. The story sported the di…

Here's the link to Netanyahu's speech at the Yom Hashoah ceremony at Yad Vashem. This is why I am relieved that he's in charge today and not Ehud Olmert, Ariel Sharon, Tzipi Livni, Ehud Barak or anyone else for that matter. I have frustrations with Netanyahu. And I have criticisms of him. But I believe that unlike everyone else, he gets it. And that's already half the fight won. G-d should just grant him the courage of his convictions and then we will know that when we say, "Never Again," we are…
