The Lesson of 25 Years of Israeli-Palestinian “Peacemaking” In The Middle East

The Iran Nuclear Deal: Peeling Back The Layers
"This thing is like an onion," George Costanza once said on an episode of "Seinfeld." "The more layers you peel, the more it stinks." Just about anyone who examines the Iran nuclear deal knows how he feels. Look at the recent bombshell report that revealed Iran will...
Obama’s “Jihadist Stimulus Bill”
Republican candidate for president and U.S. Senator Ted Cruz said: “If this deal [with Iran] goes through, the Obama administration will become the leading financier of terrorism against America in the world,” adding that he’s “heard this referred to before as the...
A Historic Catastrophe: Obama vs Israel
Americans today who say that the only alternative to the Obama administration’s pretense of controlling Iran’s continued movement toward nuclear bombs is war ignore the fact that Israel bombed Saddam Hussein’s nuclear facilities, and Iraq did not declare war. To do so would have risked annihilation.

Obama Stomps His Foot Over Netanyahu
Israel is not an enemy. This shouldn’t even be a squabble in the first place.
Will the West Defend Itself?
Leftists and progressives believe that the U.S. should become more like Europe. They praise Europe’s massive welfare state, socialized medicine and stifling economic regulation and accept its unwillingness to defend itself against barbarism.
Turkey’s Position on ISIL Misunderstood
It is tempting for Western observers to view Turkey’s reluctance to join the fight as a mark of disloyalty to NATO and as a sign that the alliance is mostly about convenience. This view may be too simplistic.
