President Bush's Ten Commandments

Makor Rishon Weekly, May 09, 2003

President George W. Bush considers Moses to be a role-model for a conviction-driven leadership, driven by the principles of justice (vs. the Axis of Evil), strategic thinking (vs. tactical cynicism) and tenacity (vs. hesitancy and vacillation).  President Bush and most of the American public and US Congress, viewe the Exodus from Egypt and the Ten Commandments as critical elements of the American culture, guiding George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson in the 1976 Revolution and in the formulation of the US Constitution.

 

The President has presented his own Ten Commandments, in the combat against terrorist regimes, during his wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, which have been driven by values and strategic interests:

The Iraqi Die Was Cast

Makor Rishon Weekly, September 27, 2002

The die was cast, and the US war on Saddam's regime has been set in motion.  The transfer of the Central Command from Florida to the Gulf area, the completion of US military installations in Qatar and Northern Iraq (no-fly zone) suggest determination rather than indecisiveness.

"What's Going On?! - Basic Facts on The State of Israel," edited by Prof. Ezra Zohar, August 01, 2002

Does the Department of State reflect the position of the US President, Congress and public toward Israel?

Does the US Administration express - exclusively or dominantly - the US position on Israel?

Does Israel's defiance of White House pressure undermine US-Israel relations, and are the bilateral relations advanced by Israeli submission to US pressure?

The Demographic Threat - Myth and Reality

Yedioth Achronot, June 20, 2002

The demographic threat- to the survival of the Jewish State – is real.  However, it has been frequently accorded mythical dimensions, in an attempt to scare the Israeli public and policy-makers into sweeping and reckless concessions, back to the 1949 lines.
