Chag Sameach - Wishing You a Joyous Shavuot!

May 23, 2015

It is also known as the Feast of Weeks because we count seven weeks from a particular day during Passover. It is also called Pentecost because it is fifty days after Passover.

Iran Nuclear Deal Presents Serious Challenges for Israel

May 21, 2015

I know I don’t have to tell you that the Middle East is already a volatile, incendiary powder keg. Even so, it seems the current U.S. Administration’s policies in the region are about to make it much more so. As I pointed out in an update several weeks ago, the Obama Administration’s determination to strike a nuclear deal with Iran at any cost is presenting a host of new security challenges for Israel. Now it seems that it may very well jumpstart a nuclear arms race in the entire region. For ex...

Hatred Toward Israel and Her People

May 14, 2015

“The world’s oldest hatred has reached surrealistic levels.” This was the sad but credible assessment of author and human rights activist Isi Leibler in an opinion column in the Jerusalem Post this week.

Why Israel's Response to Nepal Earthquake is Under Scrutiny

May 07, 2015

It seems that for some haters of Israel, no good deed must go unpunished. When word of Nepal’s recent devastating earthquake began to spread around the world, many nations moved to send help and relief.

Over 250 doctors and rescue personnel were part of an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) delegation that landed last week in the capital city of Kathmandu. This made Israel’s aid team to the earthquake-battere...

April 30, 2015

As if the beleaguered and longsuffering people of Ukraine haven’t already endured enough hardship and uncertainty — especially the historically significant Jewish population there — the latest news reports are magnifying worries there. In recent days, the U.S. Department of Defense revealed a huge surge in the number of Russian troops amassed along Ukraine's eastern border. As Pentagon spokesman, Army Col. Steve Warren told reporters, "We believe there are now between 10,000 and 12,000 Rus...
