    The director general of Israel’s Foreign Ministry, Dore Gold, called the Middle East’s Sunni Arab nations “Israel’s allies.” Gold used the term twice in a presentation Wednesday in New York focused on the shortcomings of the Iran nuclear deal. “What we have is a regime on a roll that is trying to conquer the Middle East,” Gold said of Iran, “and it’s not Israel talking, that is our Sunni Arab neighbors — and you know what? I’ll use another expression – that is our Sunni Arab allies talking.” Gold, a former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations and a longtime...

    Donald Trump won't be getting my vote in the GOP presidential primary. However, contrary to popular belief, I'm grateful he's put the GOP on life support, and he isn't alone. Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Ben Carson and Marco Rubio are doing what's been unseen since Ronald Reagan--speaking above the political and media elite and connecting directly to the people. I suspect Trump will fade. And when he does, those who can effectively communicate a vision for America with passion and optimism along with a plan to restore her to prominence will be poised to siphon off his supporters. So how...

    WASHINGTON — Representative Sander M. Levin, Democrat of Michigan and the longest-serving Jewish member now in the House, said Tuesday that he would support the Iran nuclear accord, lending a hefty voice of approval in a chamber deeply skeptical of the deal. “Israel’s security has and always will be of critical importance to me and our country,” Mr. Levin said in a lengthy statement explaining his decision. “I believe that Israel, the region and the world are far more secure if Iran does not move toward possession of a nuclear weapon. I believe the agreement is the best way to...

    Leave it to Team Obama to expect Jews to accept a Hail Mary. The Justice Department confirmed Tuesday that Jonathan Pollard, who spied for Israel, was granted parole and will be released by November, after having served 30 years in prison. The news came almost a week after Justice officials said they wouldn’t object if a parole panel granted his release. Israel and many American Jews have long sought Pollard’s freedom, arguing that he’d spied for an ally, Israel, not an enemy, and that his life sentence was harsher than what most other spies received.

Appearing before the House Foreign Affairs Committee to defend the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Kerry was asked about recent belligerent statements by Iranian leaders. […] (Rep.

    The White House did not pursue the nuclear agreement with Iran as an international treaty, because getting U.S. Senate advice and consent for a treaty has “become physically impossible,” Secretary of State John Kerry told lawmakers on Tuesday. At a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on the agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Kerry was asked about the administration’s approach of seeking a political accord between governments rather than an international treaty. Rep. Reid Ribble (R-Wisc.) recalled Kerry saying earlier in the hearing that if Congress rejects the JCPOA, other countries will in the future not...

    Last Tuesday, a 159-page PDF of President Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear deal was leaked online. Paragraph 36 was the most shocking of the agreement — a part the president would probably prefer hadn’t become public, as it demonstrated just how much of a joke the pact actually was. According to the deal’s 36th paragraph, any party — Iran or any future U.S. president — can essentially end the Iran nuclear deal with 35 days notice. Iran can claim that any one of the P5+1 nations is “not meeting its commitments” under the deal. That will then set off a 35-day

    President Barack Obama has made an art form of attacking his opponents rather than substantively defending his own policies, most recently regarding the Vienna agreement on Iran’s nuclear program. Essentially, Obama argues that we must either accept his wretched deal or go to war to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. As is typical, Obama posits the wrong choice, apparently to distract from the unpleasant reality that the agreement won’t work. It will not prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons. So the real choice we are faced with is dealing with the consequences of military action or the consequences of...

    President Obama and Jeb Bush have drawn the ire of Sen. Ted Cruz after they attacked Gov. Mike Huckabee for his comments about the Iran nuclear deal. Huckabee said the president’s Iran policy would “take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.” The president bristled at what he called a “ridiculous” comment. “The particular comments of Mr. Huckabee are just part of a general pattern we’ve seen that would be considered ridiculous if it weren’t so sad,” he said. “We’ve had a sitting senator call John Kerry Pontius Pilate. We’ve had a sitting senator, who also...

    By Joel Leyden Israel News AgencyJerusalem, Israel --- July 27, 2015 ... Former Arkansas governor and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee recently stated that: “The Iran nuclear deal is marching the Israelis to the door of the oven.” Huckabee added: “What’s ‘ridiculous and sad’ is that President Obama does not take Iran’s repeated threats seriously. For decades, Iranian leaders have pledged to ‘destroy,’ ‘annihilate,’ and ‘wipe Israel off the map’ with a ‘big Holocaust.’ ‘Never again’ will be the policy of my administration and I will stand with our ally Israel to prevent the terrorists in Tehran from achieving...

    ORLANDO, Fla. – Jeb Bush rebuked Mike Huckabee on Monday for invoking the Holocaust in criticizing President Obama over the nuclear agreement with Iran, arguing that Republicans needed “to tone down the rhetoric” if they hoped to recapture the White House next year. “The use of that kind of language is just wrong,” Mr. Bush told reporters after a town-hall-style meeting here. “This is not the way we’re going to win elections and that’s not how we’re going to solve problems. So, unfortunate remark — not quite sure why he felt compelled to say it.” Mr. Huckabee, the former governor...

    The Anti-Defamation League, a prominent Jewish advocacy group, slammed former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's comments Sunday that Obama is marching Israelis to "the door of the oven" by agreeing to the Iran nuclear deal. Jonathan A. Greenblatt, the national director of the organization, issued a statement, calling the Republican 2016 hopeful's comments invoking the Holocaust "completely out of line and unacceptable." "Israeli military and security officials have repeatedly said the Obama Administration has been as strong as any other American administration in keeping Israel secure," Greenblat writes. "To hear Mr. Huckabee invoke the Holocaust when America is Israel's greatest ally...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee's comments that President Barack Obama is marching Israelis to "the door of the oven," sparked an immediate rebuke from Jewish groups and the President himself, but Donald Trump's special counsel Michael Cohen said he doesn't think that Trump finds those words offensive. "I don't think so," Cohen, executive president of the Trump organization, told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "New Day" on Monday. "I think what [Huckabee is] really trying to say is we're in a bad place," adding that he has personally lost family members in the Holocaust and does not want to see...

    The story certainly seemed like a blockbuster: A criminal investigation of Hillary Rodham Clinton by the Justice Department was being sought by two federal inspectors general over her email practices while secretary of state. It’s hard to imagine a much more significant political story at this moment, given that she is the leading candidate for the Democratic nomination for president. The story – a Times exclusive — appeared high on the home page and the mobile app late Thursday and on Friday and then was displayed with a three-column headline on the front page in Friday’s paper. The online headline...

    Having been thoroughly schooled by Iran during the P5+1 nuke negotiations on the necessity for flexibility, the Obama Administration is now even better prepared to take on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Kim learns of U.S. plans As North Korea and more recently Iran proved, sanctions are feeble devices for getting rogue nations to eliminate their nuclear weapons programs. Possibly effective in bringing such nations to the bargaining table, they tend to collapse as the negotiators come to understand the benefits their nations would realize by their elimination (the sanctions, not necessarily their nations). According to a July 26th Washington Post article titled U.S. planning to press...

    ...[Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.)] says they asked whether they could see those agreements. He says IAEA officials replied, “ ‘Oh no, of course not, no, you’re not going to get to see those.’ And so everybody on our side of the table asked, ‘Has Secretary Kerry seen these?’ ‘No, Secretary Kerry hasn’t seen them. No American is ever going to get to see them.’ ” It turns out that only the two parties — the IAEA and Iran — get to see the actual agreements (though you can see a picture of Iranian and IAEA officials holding up what appear...
