Earthquake in Massachusetts

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3837659,00.html, January 20, 2010

Scott Brown's victory, in the race for the Massachusetts Senate seat, constitutes an unprecedented earthquake in US politics. If a Massachusetts Senate seat is not safe, then no House, Senate or White House seat is safe anymore!

Obama's First year - The Writing Was on the Wall

"Makor Rishon" weekly, January 15, 2010

I am not surprised by President Obama's performance – since January 2009 - in face of unprecedented and simultaneous economic, social, national security challenges, domestically and internationally.

 

I am not surprised by President Obama, who was elected to the most difficult and complicated post – during a most unstable period internally and externally – in spite of his obvious lack of experience and superficial worldview.

Senator Mitchell's Wake-Up Call

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3833185,00.html, January 13, 2010

The threat issued by Special Presidential Envoy to the Middle East, George Mitchell, to withhold US loan guarantees, in order to extract excessive concessions from Israel, constitutes a wake-up call for wishful-thinkers.

 

Senator Mitchell's January 7, 2010 interview with PBS' Charlie Rose refutes the notion that the Obama Administration will accept anything but full Israeli compliance with Washington's terms.

Freeze of Jewish Construction in Judea & Samaria: Peace or appeasement?

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3812533,00.html, November 30, 2009

Construction freeze in Judea and Samaria based on  erroneous assumptions:      

 

1. A freeze will not soften – but will intensify - President Obama's criticism of "settlements" in particular and Israeli policy in general. For instance, Prime Minister Netanyahu's June 14, 2009 Two-State-Solution-speech triggered exacerbated pressure by Obama. Moreover, Netanyahu's willingness to exchange hundreds of Palestinian terrorists for Gilad Shalit was followed by US pressure to release more

Obama’s Nobel Prize: A blatant attempt to Europeanize US policy

Tell me who are the committee members of the Nobel Prize for Peace, and I'll tell you why it was awarded to President Obama.

Jews in Hebron – Obstacle to Peace?

Jerusalem Cloakroom #227, September 24, 2009

133 Jews were murdered in Hebron, Jerusalem, Motza, Safed and Tel Aviv during a rampage of Arab terrorism in August 1929, 19 years before the establishment of the Jewish State, 38 years before the 1967 War and 39 years before the return of Jews to Hebron. 133 fatalities in 1929 – out of a 175,000 Jewish population – are proportionally equal to 4,560 fatalities in Israel or 230,000 fatalities in the USA in 2009!

US Pressure – A Guide for the Perplexed

http://www.news1.co.il/Archive/003-D-40868-00.html?tag=19-56-48, September 09, 2009

Fact: In 1950, the US Administration pressured Israel to refrain from Jewish construction in Jerusalem and from declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel – Prime Minister Ben Gurion built, relocated government agencies and thousands of immigrants to Jerusalem and declared Jerusalem the capital of the Jewish State. In 1967, the US Administration pressured against annexation of East Jerusalem – Prime Minister Eshkol annexed, reunited Jerusalem, and built the formidable Ramat Eshkol neighborhood. In 1970, the US Administration pressured Israel to relinquish control over parts of Jerusalem – Prime Minister Golda Meir constructed the neighborhoods of Gilo, Ramot and Neveh Yaakov (current population over 100,000!). The US Administration pressured, Israel constructed, Jerusalem expanded and the Jewish State earned strategic respect.

The Department of State – A Systematic Blunderer in the Mideast

http://www.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=36227, September 09, 2009

Israeli policy-makers and public opinion molders tend to accept US Administrations as top authorities on the Middle East . They have sometimes chosen to depart sharply from their own ideology/strategy – under US Administration pressure - in spite of systematic and dramatic US policy blunders, which have undermined US interests in the Middle East and have jeopardized Israel's existence.

For instance, in 1948, the US State Department, the Pentagon and the CIA were convinced that establishment of the Jewish State would trigger a war, producing a second Jewish Holocaust in less than a decade , that a Jewish State would be a strategic burden upon the US, that Arab oil producers would boycott the US and that Israel would join the Communist Bloc. In order to dissuade Ben Gurion from declaration of independence, they imposed a military embargo on the region (while Britain supplied arms to the Arabs) and threatened Ben Gurion with economic sanctions.

Israel, You'll Never Walk Alone!

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3762808,00.html, August 13, 2009

The American people display a robust, long-term support of the Jewish State in spite of President Obama's policy and in defiance of the NY Times and Washington Post (which contrast the Wall Street Journal's attitude toward Israel).
