Israel is a very pro-American country, maybe the most in the world. As in the past, Israelis followed the U.S. presidential election with extreme interest, amazed that the American political system did not produce more palatable presidential candidates. In a poll taken following Donald Trump’s victory, 83% of Israelis said they consider Trump a pro-Israel leader; by contrast, another poll …

First published February 5, 2017 by the Gatestone Institute https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/9888/persecuted-christians  “Unfortunately, the West has rejected the idea of solidarity with the Christians of the Middle East, prioritizing diplomacy based on oil interests and the Arab-Israeli conflict. Thus, the United States, Britain, and France have largely ignored the persecutions of the Christians of Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, and Sudan, while rushing to …

While nationalism of the Americans, French, and Chinese is admired or at least accepted, Jewish nationalism (Zionism) is regarded as racism by pro-Arab activists and journalists. While Syrian President Bashar Assad declares war against his people, with deaths numbering in hundreds of thousands and displaced in the millions, next door Israel is lambasted by the foreign minister of Sweden for …

Hitler’s SS Guards changed the name of Walter Kolodziejek after he was arrested and sent to Auschwitz in the summer of 1940, just a few weeks after the Germans opened it. He was only 18 then. The day he arrived he came to be known as Auschwitz prisoner #2254 and has worn that number on his chest ever since. It was only the …

Jerusalem is said to be central to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam but as much as the Al Aksa Mosque is important to Islam as its third holiest site, Islam can do without it. Neither is the mosque that was built on the Temple Mount several hundred years after the Second Temple was destroyed by the Romans, nor is Jerusalem ever …

  LOS ANGELES, CA — January 16th, 2017 — The final statement at yesterday’s Paris Mideast Peace conference called on Israel to withdraw to its 1967 borders and for both parties to “abstain from unilateral actions” that could jeopardize future negotiations. “Far from advancing the cause of peace, this conclave was convened at the wrong time, by the wrong parties, …

On January 15, 2017th, leaders from some 70 plus countries will meet in Paris to discuss issues relating to the Arab Israel conflict, specifically between the Palestinians and Israel. There is deep and legitimate concern that following the one sided UN Security Council Resolution 2334 last month, that this Paris gathering will be the next step to yet another one …
