    A (Much) Better Year Why Obama is acting with such urgency in his hostility to Israel and attachment to Islam. February 5, 2016 Caroline Glick On Wednesday the U.S. media interrupted its saturation coverage of the presidential primaries to report on President Barack Obama's visit to a mosque in Maryland. The visit was Obama's first public one to a mosque in the US since entering the White House seven years ago. The mosque Obama chose to visit demonstrated once again that his views of radical Islam are deeply problematic. Obama visited the Islamic Society of Baltimore, a mosque with...

    A mail from the Cargo Systems Messaging Service of the US Customs and Border Protection dated to this Saturday, and revealed by Channel 1's "Mabat" show on Thursday, shows the US is now required products from Judea and Samaria to be labeled differently. In new instructions on marking requirements sent out to American importers, goods from Judea and Samaria are not to be marked "Israel." Those who do not comply are to be sanctioned. "West Bank Country of Origin Marking Requirements," reads the title of the mail, which begins by clarifying that "the purpose of this message is to provide...

    Over the past several weeks, we have learned that the Obama administration believes it is at war with Israel. The war is not a shooting war, but a political war. Its goal is to bring the government to its knees to the point where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu loses power or begs Obama and his advisers to shepherd Israel through a “peace process” in which Israel will renounce its rights to Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. One component of this war is espionage. Last monthThe Wall Street Journal reported that Israel is a top target for American espionage. The other component...

    Before the Muslim terror stabbing spree, Netanyahu had made repeated efforts to meet with the leader of the PLO. And for once, Abbas, the PLO leader, had not been averse to a meeting. Instead it was Secretary of State John Kerry who told Abbas not to meet with Netanyahu. Abbas went to the UN and disavowed the Oslo Accords. The first Muslim stabbings of Jews, with the encouragement of the PLO, began a few days later.

Like all families, sometimes there are going to be disagreements, Obama said Friday in a webcast with Jewish Americans. And sometimes people get angrier about disagreements in families than with folks that arent family. The presidents comments came as momentum for the nuclear accord grew on Capitol Hill, where lawmakers will vote next month on a resolution to disapprove of the deal. Sen....

The U.N. Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide obligates signatories to prevent all forms and threats of genocide, which recent calls by Iranian military and political officials for the destruction of Israel clearly seem to contradict.

Then again, many would say its not very nice of the Obama Administration to keep trying to sell the currently configured Iran deal to the pro-Israel...

    Former ambassador to the US Michael Oren, whose book on his experience in Washington is due out on Tuesday, continues to ruffle feathers by criticizing US President Barack Obamas Mideast policies in op-ed pieces in the US press. In a piece Friday in Foreign Policy, Oren who left Washington on October 1, 2013, and is now a Kulanu MK -- charged that Obama was nave as a peacemaker, had blinders to terrorism, and that his abandonment by both his Muslim father and step-father had something to do with his desire to be accepted by their co-religionists. And in a...

    On Nov. 8, 2011, President Obama met with then-French President Nicolas Sarkozy in Cannes after what had been a particularly rough week for US-Israeli relations. Modal Trigger The week prior, the UN agency UNESCO admitted Palestine as a member state. Congress responded by cutting off UNESCO’s funding, a move the Obama administration direly opposed. Michael Oren, who served as Israel’s US ambassador from 2009 to 2013, said the president, having opposed Palestine’s admission to the agency, “thought he had done enough . . . and did not need to punish them further.” President Obama responded to Congress’ act by admonishing Israel for...

    President Barack Obama endorsed the Palestinian position on the 1967 lines in 2011 and by so doing altered more than 40 years of American policy without prior consultation with Israel, former ambassador to the US Michael Oren writes in a book to be published later this month. Oren, in an account of the book that appeared Friday in The New York Jewish Week, wrote that the Prime Ministers Office was outraged at the move, and instructed him to call congressional leaders. Israel felt abandoned, I was to say. And that is no way to treat an ally, he wrote.

    Obama introduced himself to the nation as the son of black and white parents. He has gone back and forth between Christianity and Islam like a philanderer in a bar.Now he has added a third religion and race to complete his identity politics trinity.At the last White House Chanukah dinner, he claimed to have a Jewish soul. At a synagogue speech last month, he called himself an honorary member of the tribe. Now his former senior advisor has quoted him as saying, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office.Of course...

    By Joel Leyden Israel News AgencyJerusalem, Israel June 4, 2015 US President Obama appeared in a prime-time interview on Israels Channel 2 TV, accusing Netanyahus government of acting too often out of fear of terrorism. I think Prime Minister Netanyahu is somebody whos predisposed to think of security first; to think perhaps that peace is naive; to see the worst possibilities as opposed to the best possibilities in Arab partners or Palestinian partners, Obama said. And so I do think that, right now, those politics and those fears are driving the governments response. As Obama was bashing Netanyahu...

    JERUSALEM, Israel -- Days after President Obama said Israel is losing "credibility" because of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's intransigence on the creation of a Palestinian state, jihadists in the Gaza Strip fired two rockets on southern Israel, the second attack in 10 days. The rockets exploded in open areas near the cities of Ashkelon and Netivot. There were no injuries or property damage, but air raid sirens blared in Gaza-perimeter communities just after 11 p.m. Wednesday. IDF Spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said more than 140,000 Israeli citizens were potentially at risk when the air raid sirens sounded. The IDF...

    On Tuesdays Special Report during the shows All-Star Panel segment, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer reacted to remarks from President Barack Obama claiming he was the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in the Oval Office. Krauthammer expressed his confusion, but criticized Obamas personal hurt and suggested he reevaluate his position on an Iran nuke deal. Im not sure I even understand what that means, Krauthammer said. But perhaps the judgment of Israelis, who 6 million of them are Jews, have a pretty good idea what a Jew is and more importantly have a pretty good ideal...

    A former Israeli official and chief of military intelligence slammed President Barack Obamas recent take on the most pertinent issues facing Israeli security, saying his optimists policy would ultimately lead to calamity with the Palestinians and, more importantly, Iran. Obama is a remarkable proponent for the optimist approach he fundamentally believes in human decency, and therefore in dialogue and engagement as the best way to overcome conflict, wrote Yossi Kuperwasser, the former director general of Israels Strategic Affairs Ministry. Obama believes that humility and concessions can salve the wound, and Islamists can be convinced to accept a global civil...

    Okay, so now its 20 years. President Obama informed Israel Tuesday via a TV interview: Sanctions wont do it, a military solution is temporary the deal that were negotiating potentially takes a nuclear weapon off the table for 20 years. If youre keeping score at home, you may remember that the president had previously acknowledged to the world that it was legitimate to believe that Iran in year 13, 14, 15, of the deal would have advanced centrifuges that enrich uranium fairly rapidly, and at that point, the breakout times would have shrunk almost down to zero. And once...

    US President Barack Obama gave an interview with Israeli media on Tuesday, in which he threatened that an Israeli refusal to renew peace talks with the Palestinian Authority (PA) will "make it hard" for the US to veto motions in the UN against Israel. In an interview with Ilana Dayan for Channel 2's "Uvda" (Fact) TV show aired Tuesday night, Obama commented on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's statements before elections in which he said that a Palestinian state won't be founded on his watch. Obama noted that later Netanyahu distanced from the statement and "suggested that there is the possibility...
