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.

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…

Judicial Reform: Death Knell of Israeli Democracy?


Following Justice Minister Yariv Levin’s press conference last week, where he set out the first stage of his program for judicial reform, the Netanyahu government has been subjected to a mass assault by Israel’s elite classes and their partners internationally. Former Supreme Court President Aharon Barak singlehandedly instigated what is now viewed as Israel’s judicial revolution while everyone’s heads were…

The Woke West is Assaulting Jews for Embracing their Heritage


As Israel is being pilloried at the U.N. Security Council by friend and foe alike for daring to allow Jews to visit the Temple Mount, professor Richard Landes joined me last week on the “Caroline Glick Show” to discuss the contemporary roots of the demonization of Jews and the Jewish state. Landes recently published Can the Whole World Be Wrong: Lethal Journalism,…
