IRAN TARGETS THE USA, March 23, 2009

The prevention of a nuclear Iran constitutes a top US national security priority.  It sheds light on a special aspect of US-Israel relationship: defiance of mutual threats.

The Debacle of Demographic Fatalism, March 23, 2009

Demographobia – the illogical fear of Arab demography – has become a central element shaping Israel's national security policy, even though it is groundless. 

Demographic Policy for Israel, February 23, 2009

The bubble of demographic fatalism is bursting, according to the most recent data published by the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics (ICBS).  

Israel is not a Banana Republic,2506,L-3665583,00.html, February 06, 2009

In October 1998, on the eve of the Wye Plantation Summit, Democratic leaders of the US House of Representatives told Secretary of State, Madelyn Albright: "Should President Clinton decide to pressure Israel, he would face a Democratic-Republican opposition."  In September 1982, Prime Minister Begin rejected the Reagan Plan – which called for an Israeli withdrawal from Judea and Samaria – by throwing the official envelope at the lap of the US Ambassador, declaring: "Israel is not a Banana Republic."  In spite of – and probably due to – the blunt rejection, the Reagan era enhanced US-Israel strategic relations in an unprecedented manner.

The Palestinian Pandora's Box,7340,L-3662411,00.html, January 23, 2009

The mild reaction by Arab countries to the Hamas-driven Palestinian predicament in Gaza refutes the assumption that the Palestinian issue is a top Arab priority and that it constitutes the core cause of Arab hostility toward the West, USA and Israel.  In fact, the Arab reaction has reflected overall Arab attitude toward the Palestinian issue since 1948, through the 1982 Israel-PLO war in Lebanon and the First and Second Intifadah, irrespective of the identity of the Palestinian leadership: Haj Amin al-Husseini, Shukeiri, Hammuda, Arafat, Abu Mazen or Haniyeh.

Quo Vadis Obama?

"Makor Rishon" weekly, December 26, 2008

The ties with the US constitute Israel's backbone militarily, diplomatically, financially, commercially and technologically.  These ties are not shaped exclusively by the President, even when the President's own party enjoys overwhelming majorities in both chambers of Congress. Much is shaped by the House and the Senate, sometimes in defiance of the White House. Moreover, Israel is not a classic-foreign-policy-issue.  Israel benefits from a unique foundation of mutual-values, which precedes its own establishment in 1948 and even 1776. US-Israel relations have constituted a win-win two-way street. How will they be impacted by the incoming Obama Administration?

President Obama Not Entering a Rose Garden,7340,L-3619084,00.html, November 05, 2008

President Roosevelt faced the Great Depression during his first term and Second World War during his third term.  President Obama will face simultaneously - upon entering the White House – the most severe economic recession since Roosevelt and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as World War Three against Islamic terrorism and a series of additional severe challenges/threats domestically and internationally.

McCain – Is It Mission Impossible?,7340,L-3610405,00.html, October 19, 2008

Senator McCain is facing the roughest hurdles ever encountered by a presidential candidate.

Demographic Implosion in Moslem Societies , October 17, 2008

Simultaneously with the collapse of the global economy – and away from media attention – there has been an unprecedented collapse of Muslim demography in the world at-large and between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean in particular.  Such a demographic development directly impacts critical policy considerations, which determine the future of the Jewish State.  Overlooking that development, and its implications, undermines the national security of the Jewish State.


The UN Population Division reports a sharp decline of fertility rates (number of births per woman) in Muslim and Arab countries.
