What Blinken Refuses to See


The 21-year-old who massacred seven Jews and wounded another five when he opened fire on them as they left synagogue last Friday night in the Neve Yaakov neighborhood of Jerusalem wasn’t a lone wolf. Neither was the 13-year-old boy who shot a Jewish father and son Saturday afternoon as they walked home from synagogue in Ir David in Jerusalem. How…

The Revolution in Iran Will Succeed


 The massacre of seven Jews outside their synagogue in the Neve Ya’akov neighborhood of Jerusalem Friday night by a Palestinian terrorist didn’t only happen on the eve of the Sabbath. Friday was also International Holocaust Remembrance Day. In my opening remarks in this week’s Caroline Glick Show, I discussed the connection between the demonization of the Jews in Germany and…

Is Israel on the Verge of a Coup?


 Over the past 30 years, to compensate for its loss of power at the ballot box, the left has transformed Israel’s legal fraternity into a means to control government policies and Knesset legislation. The Netanyahu government’s proposal to reform the judiciary represents the first real threat to their control over the levers of power. In this week’s “Caroline Glick Show,”…

Juniper Oak, the JCPOA and “Zero Surprises”


The Iranian revolutionaries plod into the fifth month of their uprising against the regime with little tangible help from the outside world. To date, more than 500 Iranian revolutionaries have been killed by regime forces directed by the Revolutionary Guard Corps. More than 18,000 have been arrested.

The Israeli Left Begs the World to Protect its Power


In 2007, then-editor of Israel’s far-left Haaretz newspaper David Landau implored then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to “rape” Israel. Landau told Rice that Israel “wants to be raped by the United States” into making territorial concessions to the Palestinians. Landau’s statement, which was widely reported at the time, was and remains shocking. But over the past quarter-century, it has become common practice for the…

Esther Hayut’s War Against Democracy


Friday morning brought the first piece of good news from Israel’s Supreme Court in years. Yediot Ahronot’s top headline declared that Supreme Court President Esther Hayut intends to resign if the Knesset passes Justice Minister Yariv Levin’s judicial reform package.

Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Return of American Anti-Zionism


I gave a webinar with the Middle East Forum on Monday evening where I placed the current U.S. efforts to block Arab-Israel peace in the context of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s February 14, 1945 meeting with the founder of Saudi Arabia, Ibn Saud. In that meeting Roosevelt built the foundations and the rationale for the policies the U.S. adopted in relation…

Saudi Arabia’s Challenge to Biden: Let’s Abandon FDR’s Deal With Ibn Saud


Speaking to the Saudi English-language newspaper Al Arabiya, last month Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made his case for peace between Israel and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Such a peace, he explained, would be “a quantum leap for overall peace between Israel and the Arab word,” which would change the Middle East “in ways that are unimaginable.” Netanyahu understated the point. As…

Democracy Must Be Restored to Israel


“For years now, Israel has seemed to me like a man sleepwalking toward a cliff. Now we’ve fallen from it.” So proclaimed author Hillel Halkin in a hysterical requiem for Israel published last week in The Jewish Review of Books. Halkin’s metaphorical cliff is the right-religious bloc’s electoral victory on Nov. 1, 2022 and the formation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s sixth…
