The Biden Administration’s Sinister Turn Against Israel

America, Israel and the Era of False Messiahs


On the eve of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq 20 years ago this month, the anticipated war was accompanied by a sense of idealistic triumphalism.

The overriding sense of U.S. troops as they gathered…

What the Rioting Left Fails to See


On Sunday, a group of Israeli Air Force reserve F-15I pilots announced that due to their opposition to the Netanyahu government’s judicial reform bills, they would not participate in their squadron’s training mission this week.

Politics is Poisoning the IDF


Last Wednesday, a mob of leftists descended on a Tel Aviv hair salon while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s wife Sara Netanyahu was inside. For three hours, they blocked her from leaving while cursing her and her husband and his government’s package of judicial reform legislation. The mob violence against Sara Netanyahu was just another expression of the left’s increased radicalism…

What the Battle For Judicial Reform Is Really About


In Israel as in states throughout the Western world, the political Left is an ecosystem of power, and not merely a political camp. It starts with the parties of the center- and far-Left. But it encompasses far more powerful institutions and actors, as well. These include the universities, the vast majority of media organs, most of the entertainment industry, and…
