    The likelihood that Syrian President Bashar Assad would make use of chemical warfare or hand such weapons over to Hezbollah has diminished significantly in recent days, according to a top official in Jerusalem. Citing data from Western intelligence agencies, the official said that the Syrian regime does not intend to employ the chemical weapons in its possession. Moreover, it is taking great care to make sure that the arsenal doesn't fall into the hands of any group outside the Syrian army.

    The European Union on Tuesday rejected Israel's request that it categorize Hizbullah as a terrorist organization. Cypriot Foreign Minister Gujarat Cossack-Marcolis, who presently holds the EU's rotating presidency, said "there is no consensus on the issue, because Hizbullah also has an active political arm." She added that the matter is open for reconsideration if "tangible evidence" that Hizbullah is involved in terrorist activity can be brought. .....

    Fresh off of handing a “diversity” award to outspoken Jew-hater Dawud Walid, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is moving on to a new outrage by launching an attack on the U.S. Constitution. The current issue of ISNA’s bi-monthly magazine Islamic Horizons carries an article about ISNA’s demand for gun control. Specifically, the article, with the unambiguous title “ISNA Seeks Gun Control,” cites shooting of Trayvon Martin to explain their opposition to S. 2188, the “National right- to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012,” and S. 2213, the “Respecting States’ Rights and Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012.”An April 13 th...

    Levy's committee has restored Israel's legal narrative about its rights in the "West Bank". There is a huge difference in how a compromise will look if Israel comes to the table as "foreign occupiers," or as a party that has just territorial claims. In January 2012, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Yaakov Neeman, the justice minister, turned to former Israeli supreme court justice Edmond Levy to head a panel of legal experts that would look into questions of land ownership in the "West Bank" (biblical Judea and Samaria, located west of the Jordan River, ed) .

    You have to start with the premise that the Prime Minister of Israel chooses his words carefully. Unlike our president who is more enchanted with the sound of his own voice than Narcissus was with his reflection. Netanyahu was asked by Chris Wallace on Wallace's Fox News Sunday show about the terrorist attack on a bus in Bulgaria that slaughtered five Israeli tourists. Bibi was well beyond adamant that the perpetrators were Hezbollah, supported by Iran. On this point, the prime minister was quite forceful. Wallace then asked Netanyahu if he had shared any of his recently acquired information with...

McCain went farther: “Oh yeah, I think it’s very clear that the scenario is very likely he could be their front man.” It did not matter that ElBaradei was a renowned international figure and an important leftist ally of President Obama’s. So pernicious was the threat posed by the Brotherhood that, in McCain’s considered opinion,...

    In the aftermath of the bombing of a bus carrying Israeli tourists in Bulgaria, the Obama administration included an Iranian-American anti-Israel group in a White House meeting and characterized the terror attack as a “tit-for-tat” reprisal by Iran. Wednesday, officials from the National Iranian-American Council (NIAC) attended a White House roundtable event for Iranian-American community leaders that featured Valerie Jarrett, one of President Obama’s closest advisers. NIAC bills itself as an Iranian-American community organization, but its work focuses on softening U.S. policy toward Iran.

    The recently highlighted “crisis of Zionism” is in fact a quandary afflicting Jewry and no new phenomenon. Rather, it has two sources, each centuries old. One source is the exile and dispersion of a majority of the Jewish people from their native land of Israel by Emperor Hadrian in the year 135 CE, and the deep-seated and long-lasting consequences on the Jewish psyche over the course of the ensuing 1,813 years; the other source is about 200 years old, a gradual religious erosion which begins with the radical Reform movement of Samuel Holdheim in Germany and David Einhorn in the...

    Will Syria Use Chemical Weapons Against Israel?By Joel Leyden Israel News AgencyJerusalem, Israel --- July 17, 2012 ... Syrian President Bashar Assad never saw it coming. For a former London trained eye doctor, Assad has failed at being able to treat his own arrogant blindness. The Arab Spring swept upon the Middle East like a Hamsin or a windy, desert heat wave. Not even air conditioning could leave one untouched. From Libya and Egypt to Iran and Morocco, Arabs came out of their homes demanding democracy.
