  If you can get past Haaretz's trademark anti-Israel bias, the article below substantiates my argument in The Israeli Solution that the integrationist trend among the Arabs of Jerusalem and Israel has positive strategic implications for Israel and must be used as a template for the extension of Israeli law to Judea and Samaria.   The article below also states, as I write in the book, that the counter trend is increased Islamic radicalism. The only true remedy for this tren…

  Three families in Israel are in agony. On June 12, when their sons Naftali Fraenkel, Eyal Yifrah and Gil-Ad Shaer were kidnapped by Islamic savages, the Fraenkels, Yifrahs and Shaers entered a new world where every breath they take is filled with devastating guilt – that they breathe free while their sons suffer unknown miseries. Every moment that passes is filled with crushed hope that they will get word that their sons are free, and then the word doesn’t come. And it doesn’t com…

  Four years ago I participated in the Aspen Counterpoint Conference in Aspen, Colorado. I gave an address there about the information war being waged against Israel. The folks in Aspen just posted my speech and I just watched it. Although some of the things I discussed are now dated, all in all, I think most of it remains relevant.    -Caroline Glick

  For most Westerners, Turkey is a hard nut to crack.   How can you understand a state sponsor of terrorism that is also a member of NATO?   How can you explain Turkey’s facilitation of Kurdish independence in Iraq in light of Turkey’s hundred-year opposition to Kurdish independence?   What is Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyep Erdogan trying to accomplish here?   Is he nuts?     On the terrorism support front, today Tur…

The main guarantor of Israel's Jewish majority has always been aliyah. Today, Jewish birthrates in Israel are higher than Arab birthrates in Judea and Samaria. They are converging with Arab Israeli birthrates. According to the latest data from Israel's Central Bureau of Statistics, whereas in 1985 Jewish births made up 69% of the total births in Israel, in 2013, Jewish births comprised 77% of the total births in Israel. Moreover, the Palestinians are leaving, by the thousands and tens of th…

The article linked below, by Pinchas Inbari from the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs discusses the massive demographic shifts taking place in surrounding Arab states and how those shifts are changing the face of the region, presenting Israel with new threats and new opportunities. Inbari also mentions the mass emigration of Palestinians from Judea and Samaria and the potential for mass emigration of Palestinians from Gaza, which I discuss at length in my book, The Israeli Solution: A One-…

  Watching the undoing, in a week, of victories that US forces won in Iraq at great cost over many years, Americans are asking themselves what, if anything, should be done.   What can prevent the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) – the al-Qaida offshoot that President Barack Obama derided just months ago as a bunch of amateurs – from taking over Iraq?   And what is at stake for America – other than national pride – if it does?   Muddying the wate…

  Three Jewish boys were abducted by Palestinian terrorists while trying to catch a ride home from school Thursday night. And as far as the foreign press is concerned, it’s their own damned fault.   As Honest Reporting documented, everyone from The Guardian to CNN, to Sky News to the Christian Science Monitor blamed Eyal Yifrach, Gil-Ad Shaer and Naftali Frankel for their victimization.   The boys deserve whatever they get, according to the media, because they a…

The Middle East is rapidly changing. Indeed, it is convulsing. After generations of stasis, where strong, despotic central governments ruled with an iron fist and everyone knew who he was and who he was not, today everything – borders, regimes, identities – is in flux.   Take Iraq. Last week, residents of Mosul lived under Iraqi government control. On Tuesday, they lived under al-Qaida control.   Today national governments throughout the Islamic world are incapable of defeati…
