    While Secretary of State John Kerry was busy blaming Israel for questioning the Iran deal thus potentially destroying his chances of winning the Nobel Peace Prize he feels he so richly deserves, Iran was busy confirming why Kerry deserves the Nobel Sucker Prize or the Nobel Prize for Endangering the World By Nuclear Iran. Speaking publicly at a think tank, Kerry cleverly shifted the failure of his deadly crowning achievement to the tried and true usual victims -- the Israelis, the Jews.

    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...

    Pressed by a senior House Democrat at today’s Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on the Iran deal, Secretary of State John Kerry would not commit the Obama administration to following the law if Congress shoots down the deal by a veto-proof majority. Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) noted that the deal “might be, at most, morally binding on this administration.” “The IRGC may publicly oppose this deal because that’s the best thing the Iranian government can do to pursue us to support — here in Congress to support the deal or maybe they genuinely oppose it,” he noted. Sherman asked Kerry point-blank...

The British Guardian reported on Sunday that when Abu Sayyaf’s compound was raided in eastern Syria, it was discovered that Turkey is the main buyer of smuggled ISIS oil which was managed by Abu Sayyaf to economically prop up the terror group. The report quoted a senior Western official, who told the Observer that the findings at the compound showed direct deals between Turkish officials and ISIS leaders is...

The Ministry of Justice said the new law is meant to bring parity to the existing "jurisdictional imbalance" between Russia and other countries.

    This is breathtaking in its own fanaticism—and in the ignorance that, one might have hoped, would have been tucked away after Romney’s 2012 presidential defeat at the hands of a lackluster incumbent. A survey of recent Iranian history suggests that its leaders, while starkly fundamentalist in their religious sensibility, conduct foreign policy based on a logical understanding of their national interests and an often brilliant pursuit of them within the context of geopolitical reality. They certainly never sent an army halfway around the world to overthrow the leader of a sovereign state with the intent of establishing a beachhead for...

Speaking in New York on Friday before members of the Council on Foreign Relations think tank, Kerry declared there are "no alternatives" to the nuclear agreement the United States and five other world powers struck with Iran. A clear focus in Kerry's message on Friday was his past and continuing support for Israel, even recalling his 100% voting record for Israel during his time as senator. With the deal, Kerry...

Whether it turns into open war on Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant is another matter.

"We have given instructions for a third series of strikes in Syria and Iraq. Air and ground operations are under way," Mr Davutoglu told reporters in the capital, Ankara. "No one should doubt out determination," he added. "We will not allow Turkey to be turned into a lawless country." The two-pronged operation against Islamic State (IS) and Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militants — two groups who are themselves...

    As residents of Beit El and supporters of the community rallied Sunday night, demanding that the government follow through on its plan to ensure that the Draynoff Houses in the community are left standing, the High Court yet again sought to put a halt to plans to prevent the demolition of the homes. The court issued an injunction against any construction work that would result from the removal of objections to the project by a planning council. Supporters had hoped that the change could lead to a new legal status for the buildings. Previously, the High Court had ordered the...

    Secretary of State John Kerry's warning that Israel will be "blamed" if Congress opposes the Iran agreement conjures up troubling memories of other instances in which Israel or Jews were warned they might be blamed for international conflicts. John Kerry U.S. Navy photo by Cmdr. Jane Campbell Secretary Kerry made his remark in an address to the Council of Foreign Relations on July 24. He appeared to be not merely predicting that Israel might be blamed, but hinting that the Obama administration itself might do the blaming. And since the administration has repeatedly claimed that rejection of the agreement will...

    Turkish government is using ISIS as a pretext to attack the PKK (Kurdistan Workers' Party). Turkey just announced that its air base at Incirlik will soon be open to coalition forces, presumably to fight ISIS. But the moment Turkey started bombing, it targeted Kurdish positions in Iraq, in addition to targeting ISIS positions in Syria. In Turkey, millions of indigenous Kurds are continually terrorized and murdered, but ISIS terrorists can freely travel and use official border crossings to go to Syria and return to Turkey; they are even treated at Turkish hospitals. If this is how the states that rule...

    US secretary of state said over the weekend that Israel would be more isolated globally if Congress killed Iran nuclear deal. An Israeli official hit back at US Secretary of State John Kerry over the weekend following remarks that were perceived by the government in Jerusalem as "thinly veiled efforts to muzzle criticism" of the Iran nuclear agreement. Responding to Kerry's contention that Israel would face even more international isolation if Congress strikes down the Iran nuclear deal, the official told The New York Times on Saturday that the government would continue its public lobbying. “We reject the threats directed...

"There is a bid for two more corvettes; the discussions are ongoing," the...
