    I am inside US government foreign policy decision-making circles. J St. serves as the “useful idiots” that the enemies of Israel within the US government use to help destroy Israel. GATES TRIAL BALLOON…LETS THROW ISRAEL UNDER THE BUS & ALL WILL BE WELL WITH THE WORLD Rashid Khalidi has prevailed within the Obama administration as he claimed he would, and as I warned he might. He is dedicated to the destruction of Israel. He makes no bones about it in his public statements and he brags about his access to the White House where he has been one of Obama’s most frequent visitors. In these efforts he has been supported by Brezinski and Scowcroft and others in the “foreign policy establishment” who have long been regarded as “pronounced enemies of Israel.” In spite of public statements and selectively leaked statements, Mahmoud Abbas,Salem Fayyad and the rest of the PA have not budged from their demands: (minimum )the West Bank and East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights to be 100% Jew free; full right of return for Palestinian refugees and their descendents to what is now “called Israel”. Equal rights for Palestinians within Israel, etc. etc. and thus,tomorrow all of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, etc. Does Gates, Clinton, or even Obama really believe that throwing Israel under the bus will help achieve a moderate pro-Western government in Egypt? Resolve the problems in Libya? Insure a stable Iraq? Moderate Hezbollah and preserve the Christians in Lebanon? Lead to a democracy in Syria? Moderate Iran’s anti-western stance and curtail their nuclear program? The willingness, again, of the United States and Europe to sacrifice the Jews to try to buy peace for themselves must be resisted clearly and forcefully by a United Jewish community. I call on the Jewish press to help mobilize this needed unity. Because “if we don’t hang together, we will surely hang separately.”

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas

PLO officials: Reports Abbas is retiring are premature

Despite the Palestinian president's sense 'that everyone abandoned him, particularly the U.S.,' observers see no imminent move on his part.

What division? Jews united over Iran deal

Not only are left and right in Israel united in opposition to Obama's compact of appeasement; the deal has made bedfellows of an astonishing array of Jewish organizations in America.

Palestinian workers stand under a shelter

You love Israel and hate occupation. What do you do?

There's a certain freedom in a time of extremism and obsession and chaos. Freedom to chart a new course. Freedom to love Israel. Freedom to help undo what it's done in your name.

How Isaiah gave Hebrew its word for vagina

If St Jerome and other experts are right, Israelis may have thought that 'pot' meant vulva, but actually they were saying cup. Or forehead. Or maybe something else.
