White House Pulls No Punches:
Blames Hamas For Rioters’ Deaths

by Mike May 14, 2018

Israel is 70 years old, and America is finally moving her Embassy to Jerusalem. Soon, it will be the 70th anniversary of “Nakba”, the disaster caused by Arab nations instigating an uprising and declaring war against the birth of Israel in 1948, and then abandoning those insurgents when Israel won the war and drove out […]

Israel’s Birthday

by Susan Olsen May 14, 2018

‘On May 14th, 1948, in Tel Aviv, Jewish Agency Chairman David Ben-Gurion proclaimed the State of Israel, reestablishing the Jewish state after 2000 years.

This Won’t Advance the Disarmament Agenda, But it Will Save Lives. Or is That Not the Point?

by Steve MacDonald March 27, 2018

Democrats are using underage mules to advance their disarmament agenda which will only get more kids killed but then, that’s all any Democrat gun-ban policy does. Get people killed. Or mugged, assaulted, raped, or robbed. The only “safety” in progressive public safety policy is their safety from regular Americans when those policies fail. We know […]

After Trump Recognizes Jerusalem Arabs Suddenly Like Ramallah For Palestinian Capital

by Steve MacDonald January 7, 2018

The Saudis are proposing that the Jerusalem suburb of Abu Dis become the capital of a future Palestinian state. The Egyptians are wondering aloud what the difference is between Jerusalem and Ramallah. Interesting times. https://t.co/76kToCaswm — Avi Mayer (@AviMayer) January 6, 2018 In case you wondered why the “Arab Street” didn’t really give a damn. […]

Nikki Haley Tells UN General Assembly Off Before Vote on Jerusalem Embassy Move

by Steve MacDonald December 22, 2017

America doesn’t care what the UN thinks but that doesn’t mean what they think comes without consequence. Nikki Haley makes a few points in advance of a vote whose outcome I’m sure she already knew. (This is–after all–the Israel hating UN we’re talking about.)

A statement of how the Islamic Arabs have changed…

by Skip December 20, 2017

…since Trump announced that the US Embassy was going to move to Israel’s capital of Jerusalem: Yeah, pretty much nothing.  They still want to push the Jews “from the river” (Jordan) into the sea.  They wish to eliminate them completely.  There can be no peace while Islamists love the death of the Jews over the […]

Another Look At Trump’s Embassy Move to Jerusalem

by Steve MacDonald December 8, 2017

Two days ago we reported President Trump’s announcement that the US formally recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel with not much if any analysis. But I did include this quote from Mr. Trump’s remarks. “It is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” Mr. Trump said at the White House. “It is the right thing to […]

Trump Keeps Another Campaign Promise: Recognizes Jerusalem as Israeli Capital

by Steve MacDonald December 6, 2017

Mr. Trump also plans to move the US embassy to Jerusalem. “It is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” Mr. Trump said at the White House. “It is the right thing to do.” He said the new U.S. embassy “will be a magnificent tribute to peace.” The president said his decision is not intended to derail any […]

Peace Prize Winner Obama Just Ended 49 Years of “Peace” in the Middle East

by Steve MacDonald January 1, 2017

The Jerusalem Post has a great article on what it views as the machinations of Obama against Isreal, through the U.N. You should read the whole thing, but I wanted to share this tiny bit because it contrasts nicely against the murky silhouette of Nobel Peace Prize Obama. (Formatting changes, mine) UN Security Council Resolution 2334 was […]

The Perfidious Obama Administration, The UN, And Israel

by Mike December 29, 2016

It is time to throw out the UN, along with the Obama Administration! Skip noted: Barack Obama refused to veto a Security Council resolution condemning settlement construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem. This resolution effectively turns over the Old City to Palestinian groups. The Palestinians are led by Hamas terrorists in Gaza and […]

Obama decided to bring a knife fight to Israel

SHOT: Alan Dershowitz: “Obama Had Israel’s Back So He Could Stab Them In It” CHASER: John Bolton: Obama Didn’t Stab Netanyahu in the Back; He Did in the Front Front, back, no matter – I can only think of the most defining of Obama’s words why he decided to not protect Israel at the UN […]

Obama: Was this the diplomacy equivalent of removing the “W” keys?

by Skip December 24, 2016

Famously the Clinton White House staffers removed the “W” keys from their keyboards just before George W Bush took over the Oval Office.  This was the F. U. moment of a group of youngsters that were in an ideological pique of years that belied their status.  Not only was it a sophomoric stunt but it […]

John Kerry: hey, Isrealies – don’t defend yourselves!

by Skip October 20, 2015

We hear this from Obama’s Secretary of State about Israeli citizens arming themselves against the Palestinians that are attacking them in what is being called “the third intifatah” (emphasis mine, reformatted) Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters today that Israel has a right to defend itself, but discouraged against “self-help” responses to random stabbing […]

“OBAMA PULLED JOHN KERRY AND SAMANTHA POWER FROM NETANYAHU UN SPEECH”

by Skip October 1, 2015

That was the headline at Breitbart / National Security.  I was at lunch when Bibi Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel spoke (after the jump) at the UN during this “terrorist” / backslapping self-congratulations over the “Iran will never get a nuke” conference.  I was mesmerized over how he constructed that speech and thought that his […]

Bernie The High Moral Standard

by Ed Naile July 13, 2015

Crazy lefty Bernie Sanders wants America to apologize for slavery – like every divisive progressive does, except Bernie has some explaining and apologizing himself to do. First of all, being a lifetime resident of elected office and never having had a real job is NOT a position from which one should be demanding others to […]

Does Gov. Hassan Support the UCC Resolution Against Israel?

by Steve MacDonald July 3, 2015
Thumbnail image for Does Gov. Hassan Support the UCC Resolution Against Israel?

New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan is a proud member of the United Church of Christ (UCC), as are many New Hampshire Democrats. They are “proud” because the UCC works chiefly as a social justice community organizer, promoting left-wing dogma. Their on-line presence lists priorities that could just as easily be a bullet list of talking points […]

The Vogue of False Justice

by Tom February 10, 2015

I was completely taken aback by this video… As I see it, there are multiple factors at play here: Muslim extremism is slowly creeping its way into American culture – more rapidly every year. Muslim extremists, piggy-backing on the methods of the American Left, are using American Universities as seed beds for their efforts. Anti-Semites are […]

Jimmy Carter Blames Paris on….Israel.

by Steve MacDonald January 13, 2015

You can always count on former President Jimmeh Cahtah to find a way to blame Israel.  “Why’s that toast burnt?  Well, it’s the Palestinian problem.” c/o Judicial Watch “Well, one of the origins for it is the Palestinian problem. And this aggravates people who are affiliated in any way with the Arab people who live […]

Are Israeli Settlements the Barrier to Peace?

Are Israeli Settlements the Barrier to Peace? (Prager U) Is Israel’s policy of building civilian communities in the West Bank the reason there’s no peace agreement with the Palestinians? Or would there still be no peace even if Israel removed all of its settlements and evicted Israeli settlers, as it did in Gaza in 2005? […]

Is the UN Fair to Israel?

by Steve MacDonald September 15, 2014
Thumbnail image for Is the UN Fair to Israel?

Israel is a vibrant democracy with full rights for women and gays, a free press and independent judiciary. You would think that the United Nations would celebrate such a country. Instead, the UN condemns Israel at every turn to the point of obsession. How did this happen? Anne Bayefsky, director of the Touro Institute on […]

Comment Board Doodlings:
Israel Didn’t Scorch Enough Earth In Gaza!

by Mike August 6, 2014

Reacting to a borderline anti-Semitic piece on ZeroHedge (normally a good economic blog) which lamented Israel’s scorched earth tactics without context, I penned the following: The inhabitants of Gaza deserve what they get, and they haven’t been punished enough yet. Given a vote, they chose terrorist overlords instead of a government. Given aid, those overlords […]

So, Hamas keeps denying they shoot rockets from civilian areas?

by Skip August 5, 2014

I keep thinking that the Israeli-Hamas war is like that between the idea war between Republicans and Democrats.  Both Hamas and Democrat / Lefties are good at emotional demagoguery relying on both heartstrings and low info population and both pretty much use “its for the children” (albeit in somewhat different ways).  But occasionally, facts do crop up […]

John Kerry got a chance to take a break from ruining US relations with Israel, today. I suspect he took out that very expensive boat of his, the one he did not want to pay Massachusetts taxes on as a US Senator from Massachusetts, and motored over to Nantucket Island, where he is seen in […]
