JERUSALEM, ISRAEL — AUGUST 27, 2020 — This week, under cover of darkness, a man arrived in a remote location carrying $30 million cash as a payoff that went largely unnoticed.

  JERUSALEM, ISRAEL — February 2, 2020 — When you read the Trump plan closely, you realize it is a mirror image of the Oslo Accords. Rather than Israel being required to prove its good will, the Palestinians are required to prove their commitment to peace. From 1994 through 1996, as a captain in the Israel Defense Forces, I served …

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL — October 25, 2018 — Someone in Saudi Arabia – and most of the available information points to the crown prince, who is the country’s real power center – dispatched a hit squad to murder a dissident commentator inside the country’s consulate in Istanbul. This much is clear. The question now is: What to do about it? …

His timeless and famous remark at the time, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” will go down as one of the most iconic phrases of all time. Yet, when Armstrong visited Israel in 1994 …

The recent cancellation by the Argentinean national soccer team to play a match against Israel’s national team in Jerusalem is more than a loss for soccer and the 30,000 fans who bought tickets to the sold out game. It is another nail in the coffin of any semblance of Argentinean pride, and another victim of, and “victory” for, Palestinian Arab …
