Overzealous criminal investigations of political figures, in Israel or America, pose a grave danger to democracy.

There is no compelling evidence to suggest Bannon is anti-Semitic. But because bigotry against any group should be disqualifying for high office, I cannot support his appointment.
The international community is disincentivizing the Palestinians from negotiating a two-state solution
Feminists, Islamists and university administrators have all taken extreme measures to protect their 'right' not to be offended. Unfortunately, censorship for this cause is widely accepted in modern democracies.
The contrast between the Israeli and Palestinian leaders speeches at the UN couldnt be clearer: Netanyahu suggested a new pathway to peace, whereas Abbas spewed hateful and unhelpful rhetorical poison.
Qatar and Turkey are among the worst villains in the Gaza tragedy and should be treated as pariahs unless and until they stop becoming state sponsors, supporters and facilitators of terrorism.
Israel is fighting for the entire civilized world against those who would shoot down civilian airliners, whereas Hamas rocket fire is condemning more Palestinians to death.
Hamas deliberately places its tunnel entrances in hospitals, schools and mosques: Israel has no choice but to use ground forces to shut them down.
To Gazas innocent civilians: Demand a ‘Gaza Spring and rid yourself of Hamas violent theocrats and kleptocrats, who love Palestinian children less than they hate Israel.
If its too late and costly to reoccupy Gaza, even after a ceasefire Israel must impose a forceful siege to prevent the importation of rockets, like those being fired now on Israels civilians.
Peter Beinart distorted my position on Iran: I dont want a military confrontation but I believe the best way to avoid one is through a credible deterrent threat. That doesn't make me a 'hawk.'
There is no moral equivalent between Israels rule of law and Hamas rule of terror: Every country has its vigilantes, but where Israel pursues them, Hamas celebrates the killers.
Israels former PMs six year prison term is a tragedy for Israel and Jews worldwide. The judge used his long record of public service against him, rather than to his credit.
J Streets Jeremy Ben-Ami has consistently refused to work together with pro-Israel voices of the center toward a two-state solution. Will he now at least give us a platform?
J Streets 'Big Tent is open only to one side - the anti-Israel and BDS-supporting hard left of its own position; pro-Israel centrists are censored.
The Israel boycott movement threatens the peace process by promoting extortion rather than negotiation, and discourages Palestinians from agreeing to any reasonable peace offer.
He asked me to withhold final judgment on his role in Sabra and Shatila - he said once more material was declassified and the full truth known, his role would be seen in a different light.
Singling out Israelis for an academic boycott is not only a blatant example of double standards; it is an act of complicity with the enduring prejudice against Jews.
Iran remains as committed as ever to obtaining nuclear weapons: The U.S. promised this could not be allowed to happen.
J Street maliciously distorted my clear support for diplomacy in order to appease their hard left constituents, who prefer containment rather than preventing Iran going nuclear.
