America and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

On the U.S. Obligation in Iraq

Democrats and Republicans, liberal media as well as Fox News, all seem to take for granted the following position on Iraq, as (in this instance) reported today at MSNBC.com: "The constitution is a crucial step in Iraq's transition to democracy after two decades of...

Pro-Israel Palestinians

For all their rhetoric about Israel's "vicious" and "brutal" occupation, Palestinian Arabs -- including their leaders -- sometimes let down their guard and acknowledge how they prefer Israel to the Palestinian Authority. Here are some recurring themes: Restraints on...

Palestinians Who Cling to Israel

Israel's interior minister recently declared that after their release from long jail sentences, four Palestinian Arabs convicted of helping with suicide bombings in 2002, killing 35, will be expelled from Israel. They would, the Associated Press reported, "lose the...

Bush’s Betrayal of America: The Iraqi Elections

President Bush claims that holding elections on January 30 will bring Iraq a step closer to freedom, an outcome allegedly vital to America's security. But the Iraqi election will bring neither freedom to Iraq nor security to America. Consider the beliefs of the Iraqis...

Free Elections in Iraq: Victory and Defeat

The defeatists have been defeated. Remember all the political outcries that the Iraqi elections should be postponed because it would be impossible to hold elections with terrorism rampant throughout the country? Fortunately, most Iraqis do not see the American media,...

A Huge Election in Iraq

The election coming up in Iraq may turn out, in the long view of history, to be even more important than our own recent election. Both elections represent a country at a crossroads, with a choice of very different paths to take -- for many years to come -- according...

Democracy is No Guarantee of Freedom for Iraq

A free Iraq (or Afghanistan, or Iran for that matter) would not have to exactly duplicate the American system of government, but it would have to duplicate our basic protection of the individual against the majority, i.e., against a democracy.

Iraqi Optimists versus U.S. Pessimists

A majority of Americans, according to a recent poll, now call going into Iraq a mistake. Many Iraqis apparently failed to get the memo. A poll commissioned by the Coalition Provisional Authority found 63 percent of Iraqis expect conditions to improve after the...

Iranian Nuclear Program: Will Israel Save Us?

The Iranian state is rushing headlong into disaster and I'm not referring to an imminent invasion by the United States. Iran is developing nuclear weapons and is attempting to filibuster international agencies which are attempting to monitor Iranian actions. For the...

Symbolism vs. Substance in Iraq

This must be the golden age of symbolism. In war-torn Iraq, its political leaders are demanding that foreign workers who are trying to rebuild that country must be subject to the Iraqi legal system. Do you have any idea what the Iraqi legal system is? Are you prepared...

The Iraqi Prison Scandal — Time for Some Perspective

Scandal! Shocking! Shame! A public relations setback for the war! The world no longer trusts America with her loss of the moral high ground! Yes, the pictures at the Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad show coalition American soldiers taunting, humiliating and apparently...

The Beheading of American Nick Berg in Iraq

The slaughtering of Nick Berg is one small step for terrorists and a major leap for the West's encounter with Jihadism. The videotape, posted on the Ansar website, is one of many horrifying acts perpetrated by the followers of Osama bin Laden. It has also become a...

The Media Frenzy Over Abu Ghraib Military Prison in Iraq

The American Civil War was not about conditions in Andersonville prison and the war in Iraq is not about conditions in Abu Ghraib prison. Terrible things happened in both military prisons but that was a small part of both these wars. When our troops are putting their...

Anti-Israel Terror Backfires

A day after Israeli troops killed its second leader within a single month, the Islamist terrorist organization Hamas put on a brave face. The Israelis "are dreaming" if they think this would weaken Hamas, announced Ismail Haniyeh to a crowd of over 70,000 mourners at...
