    It is time to take back Israel. It is time to reclaim what belongs to the Jewish People from time immemorial and reconfirmed in modern times How do you find a compromise with people whose government pays a lifelong dividend to the families of those they proudly call “martyrs;” those who target civilians: children, women and men, grandparents, in cafés, on beaches, in hotels, on Holy Sites, and who attack cars and buses with impunity? How do you develop empathy for people who idolize these murderers, these terrorists, by naming streets and plazas after them, joyfully acknowledging their arrival in...

    At the United Nations General Assembly Thursday in New York City, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu renewed his warning about Iran’s path to a nuclear bomb. Considering the recent passage of the nuclear agreement with Iran, the prime minister’s comments were especially powerful. “Iran is setting up dozens of terror cells,” Netanyahu said. “Imagine what they will do after the sanctions are lifted.” “Unmuzzled,” Iran will “go on the prowl, devouring more and more prey,” he said. In the wake of the nuclear deal, Netanyahu remarked, Iran is spending billions on weapons and satellites. “Do you think Iran is doing that...

In his annual General Assembly speech, Mr. Abbas accused Israel of having violated these pacts, which date back two decades and outline security, economic and other arrangements in the Palestinian territories occupied by Israel during and after the 1967 war. He asserted that there was no reason that the Palestinians should remain faithful to them as long...

The White House explained the cultural importance of the ancient name for what many Indigenous peoples consider a sacred place.We laud President Obama’s recognition of the importance of indigenous place names, especially in regards to sacred tribal lands. In the spirit in which he restored the ancient name to Denali, we urge the President to refrain from using the modern colonialist name West Bank for the sacred tribal heartlands that we have from time immemorial referred to as Judea and Samaria.

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu asked members of Congress to work for a better nuclear deal with Iran Sunday and said there was no way to compensate Israel if the nuclear agreement is finalized. "I think the right thing to do is merely not to go ahead with this deal. There are many things to be done to stop Iran's aggression and this deal is not one of them," Netanyahu said on CBS's "Face the Nation" as part of a string of US media interviews denouncing the deal reached on Tuesday between Iran and the P5+1 powers. The deal will be...

    Isaac Herzog told The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg in December that “I trust the Obama administration to get a good deal” with Iran. That statement must have warmed the hearts of the White House, as Herzog’s Zionist Union competed against Benjamin Netanyahu and Likud for control of Israel, and Herzod (or Tzipi Livni) would have replaced Netanyahu in the increasingly strained relationship between the US and Israel. Those hopes were crushed in the shockingly broad win for Likud and Netanyahu, whose skepticism about Barack Obama’s negotiations with Iran ran almost completely opposite to Herzog’s implicit trust that Obama had Israel’s back....

    With President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal just around the corner, there couldn’t have been a better time for the 2015 Christian United for Israel (CUFI) Summit in Washington D.C. ISRAEL-PALESTINIAN-CONFLICT-IRAN-WEAPONRY “We gather here for our tenth annual CUFI summit, and this is the snapshot of the world: The enemies of Israel have surrounded the Jewish state, promising to wipe the Jewish people off the face of the earth. Our State Department has been groveling before Iran, trying to get a nuclear agreement,” said CUFI Founder and National Chairman Pastor John Hagee at the summit’s Welcome Ceremony.“Every day concessions are made,...

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will have to make a very difficult decision over the next few days: whether to continue fighting the nuclear agreement with Iran with all his strength and, according to his spokespeople, “kill himself” over the vote in the US Congress or accept defeat and try to leverage something for the benefit of the security of the State of Israel. Netanyahu’s record over recent years does not augur well for those who feel that Israel should do an about-face. There are those Israelis who feel that Netanyahu should cut his losses and take advantage of the situation...
  • Zbigniew Brzezinski Dismisses Bibi's Criticism of Iran Deal: 'Not a Serious Person'

    Zbigniew Brzezinki is the man who infamously recommended shooting down Israeli warplanes should they attempt to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities. So when David Ignatius asked him today what he thought of Bibi Netanyahu's condemnation of the Iran deal, Zbigniew knew he was being teed up to unload on the Israeli PM. By Zbig's vituperative standards, his response was in fact relatively measured. Still, the utter disdain with which he regards Netanyahu was evident, calling him "not a very serious person" who can entertain Congress but is not good for Israel. View the video here.
  • Israeli Opposition Puts Aside Hatred Of Netanyahu To Oppose Iran Deal

    Isaac Herzog, the leader of Israel’s political opposition, whose visceral dislike of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is well-known, has declared that he supports Netanyahu in his efforts to oppose the Iran deal, which the U.S. Congress is about to consider. “I had a meeting yesterday where I learned about the deal and I think it is bad for Israel. [Netanyahu and myself] will certainly cooperate when it comes to the security of Israel. As an Israeli patriot, this deal is dangerous,” Herzog said in an interview quoted by the Times of Israel.

    Inspections clause is farcical, sanctions snap-back clause is incomprehensible, and a major Iranian terror chief, Qassem Soleimani, has been removed from the terror list, PM protests Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that perusal of the previous day’s nuclear deal with Iran yields a picture that grows ever bleaker. The agreement is “filled with absurdities,” Netanyahu said, scolding world leaders for caving in to Iran’s “charm offensive” and crediting Israel with leading the fight against an Iranian bomb. He called on the Knesset to present a united front in the fight against the “bad in every respect” pact. “The agreement...

    JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israel's prime minister condemned Tuesday's international nuclear agreement with Iran as a "stunning historic mistake" and said his country is not bound by the deal, strongly hinting that military action remains an option.
