    How did a country smaller than El Salvador with a population of eight million and few natural resources become a military superpower within a few decades? In The Weapon Wizards: How Israel Became a High-Tech Military Superpower (St. Martin's Press, 2017), authors Yaakov Katz and Amir Bohbot explain this remarkable phenomenon. Calling on their experience as Israel Defense Forces (IDF) veterans and seasoned national security analysts, they present an intriguing and engrossing account of Israel's defense capabilities development. From a country lacking bullets and aircraft, Israel transformed itself into one of the most effective militaries in the world and the...

    On 9 February 2017, in Israel at the city of Petah Tikva, a Palestinian identified as Sadeq Nasser Abu Mazen, attempted a terror attack. The attack was not very successful. One man was shot in the leg, and a couple of others were hit by bullet fragments or shards of material fragmented by bullets. The weapon that failed in this attack was a small shop produced submachine gun.The Israeli term for improvised submachine guns is a Carlo. The term derives from the similarity to the Carl Gustav M/45 9mm submachine gun. The Carl Gustav was made under license for...

    American Thinker ^ | February 26, 2016 | Steve Postal
    An oft-repeated sentiment in the international community, college campuses, and both Democratic and Republican administrations is that Israeli settlements built following the 1967 Six-Day War are inhibiting peace in the Middle East. This sentiment, however, is wrong. Settlements have never stood in the way of peace. In fact, Israel withdrew from territory and uprooted its own people, receiving mostly war in exchange. The settlements are a red herring; those opposed to them simply do not understand that Arab violence towards Jews predates, and runs much deeper than, the settlements. Israel has every right to build settlements and they are of...

    JERUSALEM Israels Minister of Intelligence and Atomic Energy, Israel Katz, is known as a political bulldozer. Its a label he is proud of and a trait, he believes, could bring about peace with the Palestinians. Albeit in a roundabout way. Katzs plan, which he says has been adopted by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is regional and multilayered. The creation of a Palestinian state or at least an autonomous, demilitarized entity will come by default at the tail end. Netanyahu went to America after many discussions here in which we spoke about the idea for regional peace, based on...

A police investigation probing gifts allegedly given by media mogul Nuni Mozes to the Prime Minister, as well as claims of a conflict of interest in a purchase by Netanyahus government of ballistic missile submarines and allegations that public funds were diverted to Netanyahu familys private residence have all fueled speculation Netanyahu could be forced to resign, making new elections all but inevitable.

    "The End of Palestine" Israel has the opportunity to reclaim its nation. Palestine is many things. A Roman name and a Cold War lie. Mostly its a justification for killing Jews. Palestine was an old Saudi-Soviet scam which invented a fake nationality for the Arab clans who had invaded and colonized Israel. This big lie transformed the leftist and Islamist terrorists run by them into the liberators of an imaginary nation. Suddenly the efforts of the Muslim bloc and the Soviet bloc to destroy the Jewish State became an undertaking of sympathetically murderous underdogs. But the Palestine lie is past...

First, by working together, they can defeat the common foes of their countries. And second, the success of their joint efforts will bring about the defeat of their bureaucratic enemies. The most significant development to come out of the Trump-Netanyahu press conference was their refusal to endorse the two-state policy doctrine. This was a necessary move. ...................... The insanity at the heart of the two-state formula, and the US and Israeli publics desire...

    While Rex Tillerson is on his first overseas trip as Secretary of State, his aides laid off staff at the State Department on Thursday. Much of seventh-floor staff, who work for the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources and the Counselor offices, were told today that their services were no longer needed. These staffers in particular are often the conduit between the secretarys office to the country bureaus, where the regional expertise is centered. Inside the State Department, some officials fear that this is a politically-minded purge that cuts out much-needed expertise from the policy-making, rather than simply...

    A star is born is our reaction to the first press briefing by President Trumps new ambassador at the United Nations. The ex-governor of South Carolina was ridiculed by the Left when the president first sent her nomination up to the Hill, owing to her alleged lack of foreign policy chops. She certainly rang the wake up gong for that crowd this morning, after emerging from her first meeting of the Security Council. Tough as nails but with a smile and a layer of Southern charm. The ambassador had just come from the regular monthly Security Council on Middle East...

    The two-state solution of an independent state of Palestine alongside Israel has been a stated objective of Middle East peace negotiations for decades. But in his first visit to the White House under an administration whose welcome contrasted sharply with the treatment of its predecessor, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it clear the starting point for discussing peace is to do away with labels such as two states and deal with substance. .. The first is that they must recognize the Jewish state. They have to stop calling for Israels destruction. They have to stop educating their people for...

    Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem The Book of Psalms (Psalm 112) Psalm 112[a] 1Praise the Lord.[b] Blessed are those who fear the Lord, who find great delight in his commands. 2Their children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. 3Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever. 4Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous. 5Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice. 6Surely the righteous will never be...

    The Palestinian Authority (PA) on Wednesday evening reacted to the meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. A statement from PA chairman Mahmoud Abbass office said that the PA remains committed to the two-state solution and is willing to work with Trumps administration to achieve a peace agreement. At the same time, the statement criticized Netanyahu and claimed that Israels insistence on destroying the two-state solution will lead to more extremism and more instability. We are ready to work positively with the Trump administration in order to bring peace, the statement continued, but the Israeli Prime...
  • The Fix Is in! CNN Loses Its Mind Not Getting Questions to Trump, Attacks Conservatives Instead

    Batten down the hatches, folks. On Wednesday after the press conference between President Trump and Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu, pure and utter panic set in on CNN as Inside Politics host John King and White House correspondent Jim Acosta bemoaned that “the fix is in” because “it would be nice if the conservative outlets the President is calling on would ask him tough questions.” After Trump and Netanyahu left their podiums, King attacked questioners David Brody from the Christian Broadcasting Network and Katie Pavlich from Townhall with a dose of sarcasm. He then went serious as they didn’t ask Trump about Mike Flynn the...

    President Donald Trump said he would support the peace agreement Israel and Palestinians "like the best" in a joint press conference during which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu railed against Palestinian efforts to reach a deal. "I'm looking at two state and one state. And I like the one that both parties like," Trump said when asked about a peace agreement. Trump's meeting with Netanyahu on Wednesday was an initial test of Trump's campaign pledge to go further than President Obama in strengthening the relationship with Israel. By the end of Obama's tenure in office, his relationship with Netanyahu was...
