    While it is two full years before the 2016 US presidential race, the parade of possible candidates to Israel began Monday afternoon with a meeting by Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. Warren, whose name has been mentioned as a possible challenger to Hillary Clinton for the democratic nomination, arrived Saturday in Tel Aviv, and will also visit Ramallah and Amman. This is the first trip abroad for the senator, elected in 2012 and who has so-far concentrated largely on US domestic issues.According to the Boston Globe, Warren has been among only a handful of senators...

    Tuesday's murderous attack in Jerusalem is a direct result of incitement led by Hamas, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and irresponsibly ignored by the international community, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in his initial reaction to the Har Nof terrorist attack. “We will respond decisively to the horrific murder of Jews who came to pray and were killed by despicable murderers,” he said.

    Allies: It was no bitterness, all class, when Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu was asked about a cowardly Obama aide anonymously calling him "chickensh*t." Just what you'd expect from an ex-special forces commando. Is there an American politician of any stripe who could have restrained himself from blowing off some public steam after an unnamed White House source described him with a profanity that means "contemptibly petty" and "lacking courage"? Not likely. But actual warriors, as opposed to the figurative kind, never have to prove their bravery; it comes naturally. During his service in the Israeli Defense Forces in the wars...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered one of his sternest warnings to date about Iran, suggesting the U.S. is failing to see the country's intentions in either the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or Iran. "Iran is not your ally. Iran is not your friend. Iran is your enemy. It's not your partner. Iran is committed to the destruction of Israel," Netanyahu said in an interview with CBS' "Face the Nation" when asked whether the U.S. should try to work with Iran in the fight against ISIS. Both countries want to see the jihadist group...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu likened Hamas to al Qaeda, ISIS and other extremist Islamist groups Tuesday as he implored the international community to hold Palestinian militants responsible for the bloodshed in Gaza. Israel's top politician said Hamas must be held accountable for rejecting multiple cease-fire agreements and a relentless attack on Israeli civilians. Netanyahu made his comments at a joint press conference in Tel Aviv alongside U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon. "What we're seeing here with Hamas is another instance of Islamist extremism, violent extremism that has no resolvable grievance," Netanyahu said. "Hamas is like ISIS, Hamas is like al...

We will not allow them to be changed either by action or by legislation." The statement evidently refers to a bill seeking to allow Jews to pray at the site, where they have been banned from doing so by the Jordanian Waqf (Islamic trust) that still enjoys de facto control.

    Public opinion polls just conducted in Israel indicate a steep drop in the popularity of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. It may be a temporary process, it may be a transient phase, but as of this very moment the numbers do not lie and reflect a clear trend. Support for Netanyahu is in steep decline. The results of two surveys publicized in Israel, one for the “HaMate” program on Israeli TV Channel 10 and the other for the Knesset TV Channel (“Panels”), point to an amazing fact: more than 60% of the Israeli public does not want Netanyahu to serve another...

    As prime minister, Netanyahu has consistently invoked his solemn duty to protect Israel's national security. Ironically, he has become the single most reckless individual who is imperiling the very security of the state. One need not look far and wide to discern Netanyahu's disingenuousness and misguided policies that have only undermined Israel's future security. He uses his political skills to deceive and mislead in order to "protect himself from political defeat" while disregarding what is best for the future of the state. He surrounds himself with cronies blinded by their skewed ideological zeal with no morals or scruples to support...

    Like many others, I suspect that the senior official was Obama himself. This is evidenced by several things. Obama has frequently used Atlantic correspondent Jeffrey Goldberg as a mouthpiece, giving the reliably sycophantic correspondent various interviews and scoops over the years. Predictably, Goldberg lays the blame for the unprecedented schism between the United States and Israel at the feet of Netanyahu, not the guy going around throwing out schoolyard insults. Secondly, the administration’s walk-back of the comment has been decidedly limited for such a case. Usually, the offending official would be sacrificed in the name of maintaining diplomatic niceties, and...

But Alistair Baskey, spokesman for the National Security Council, said the criticism does not reflect how the rest of the administration views Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “Certainly that's not the...

Psaki said that while the US had yet to hear an “official announcement” that plans to build in East Jerusalem would go forward, the US is “certainly deeply concerned” by the reports. Secretary of State John Kerry discussed the topic more broadly during a phone call to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over the weekend, Psaki said,...

Netanyahu said that putting any restrictions on where Jews could live is “against the American values. And it doesn’t bode well for peace."

The book also includes a long debate (about 15 percent of the book) between Dershowitz and John Dugard, a sharp critic of Israel. Here’s an excerpt from Dershowitz’s conclusion to the book, which I think captures his argument well:

    Why would President Obama, a champion for the rights of underprivileged blacks and Muslims, try to prevent the construction of new housing for underprivileged blacks and Muslims? Because the blacks are Jewish, the Muslims are in Israel, and the housing is in Jerusalem. In any other part of the world, such housing would be regarded as progressive government intervention to aid the downtrodden. But such housing in Israel is being denounced by President Obama’s spokespeople as “poisonous” and “anti-peace.” The controversy involves a neighborhood in southeastern Jerusalem called Givat Hamatos. It was settled back in the 1990s by Jewish immigrants...

    The sister of a leading Iranian nuclear physicist widely believed to have been assassinated by Israel as part of an effort to derail the Islamic Republic’s drive to create nuclear weapons says her brother was murdered by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard (IRI) because he wouldn’t cooperate with the effort to divert nuclear activities from peaceful purposes. When Iranian scientist Dr. Ardeshir Hosseinpour was killed in February 2007, the cause of death was reported to be “gassing” and most presumed the act was carried out by Israel. That belief stood largely because of Iranian accusations to that effect, and because of Israeli...

The supplies were supposed to help besieged Iraqi army officers and soldiers who had been fighting Islamist extremists for one week in Saglawyah and the village of Al-Sijar in the country’s western province of Anbar.

    Glenn Beck presented a theory Tuesday about why the United States bombed targets from the Khorasan group last week, saying it’s possible that the United States did it to help prop up the Iranian government in return for increased cooperation from Iran’s leaders. “It is a theory, but remember, my theory was that you were being lied to in great detail on Benghazi,” Beck said on his television program. “I think this is going to fall in the same thing. I have an answer that nobody else does. [But] I want you to know again, it is a theory.” Beck...

    In his address to the UN General Assembly last week, President Obama called the conflict in the Middle East “a fight no one is winning.” I think the evidence suggests he’s wrong. I think Iran is making significant gains.That should distress us because the Islamic Republic, no less than the Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL), is committed to waging jihad. Iran’s 1979 revolution was led by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini -- a Persian, Shi’a, Islamist version of Lenin. His intention: to spark a global uprising against the West.Khomeini championed social justice – of a sort. “If one permits...

    According to Iran expert Michael Ledine, Obama had sent William Green Miller to Tehran before Obama assumed office to relay the message that Iran-US relationship would change. In 2008, he sent Ambassador Miller to a secret trip to Iran to let Iran know that things would change when he became president. I was told that during the campaign, Miller told me that it was true. Meanwhile this administration trashes Israel for building settlements.

    With the Iran nuclear talks now in their endgame and the prospect of a very different political environment in Washington next year if Republicans capture the Senate, Obama officials are in overdrive to achieve their dream of a legacy agreement with Tehran so that President Obama can claim he halted the threat from the Iranian nuclear program. Their goal is to get a final agreement before the nuclear talks are scheduled to end November 24. While the Obama administration has long been desperate to get such an agreement, two recent ill-advised American concessions and a string of misleading statements and...

    Our hopes and the world's hope for peace are in danger. Because everywhere we look, militant Islam is on the march. It's not militants. It's not Islam. It's militant Islam. Typically, its first victims are other Muslims, but it spares no one. Christians, Jews, Yazidis, Kurds – no creed, no faith, no ethnic group is beyond its sights. And it's rapidly spreading in every part of the world. You know the famous American saying: "All politics is local"? For the militant Islamists, "All politics is global." Because their ultimate goal is to dominate the world.

    Israel is to press ahead with the planned construction of 2,610 homes in Jerusalem, extreme leftist group Peace Now complained Wednesday to AFP. The housing units, which have been slated for construction since 2012 in the neighborhood of Givat Hamatos, were given final approval last week, Peace Now said in a statement. Peace Now spokeswoman Hagit Ofran told AFP the government could now publish tenders for the project, but that it would be months before building actually began. Ofran, true to the Peace Now agenda, also stated that the plans damaged prospects for peace and an eventual independent Palestinian state....

    A group of over 50 European Parliament members has nominated a controversial Egyptian activist for the prestigious Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought, despite his having advocated the assassination of Israelis and political leaders in Egypt and called for an end to the State of Israel. Alaa Abdel Fattah, 32, an Egyptian blogger and political activist, has been arrested numerous times by Egyptian authorities since the eruption of a popular revolution in the country in early 2011. Abdel Fattah, who boasts 626,000 followers on Twitter and 156,000 on Facebook, was released on bail September 15 after being charged with organizing...
