Uncensored Israel News, Jewish news, National Israeli news

Obama refused to meet Netanyahu on the sidelines of the AIPAC conference in March, but will meet him during the nuclear conference next month.

Unable to withstand the frontal offensive in Marjah, the Taliban sent suicide bombers to Kabul. The spat of explosions and firefights left 17 people dead.

Foreign troops cannot secure Baghdad from suicide bombers, and have much less hope of prevailing in Kabul.

The Israeli president said that Hezbollah has prevented Lebanon from becoming a Middle-Eastern Switzerland. Wrong. Productive middle-class Christians left Lebanon years before Hezbollah even came into existence. If anything, Hezbollah brought some stability to Lebanon, which was torn by clashes between Shiite Amal, Druze, and Maronites.

A better question, though, is why Israel has not become the Middle East’s Switzerland? It is because the country is ruled by Peres and his fellow commies.

Israeli Arabs ran over a Jewish soldier near Kiryat Shmona in the Galilee. Unwilling to invoke nationalist motives, police classified the attack as criminal-related simply because the Arabs took his rifle.

Not long after Obama returned the US ambassador to Damascus, Iran came up with a better offer—that country sent its president.

Obama’s error is his hallmark confidence-building approach, which calls for incremental steps. But in order to embrace Washington, Assad has to abandon Iran and Lebanon. Certainly, he would require much stronger incentives for that than ambassadorial relations. Obama can woo Assad away from Iran with really big money, but no money has been promised yet, while Iran continues to finance Syrian military expenditures.

Young Assad won’t give up his emotional ties to Nasrallah or his political designs on Lebanon for peanuts, or even for the Golan Heights, which are of little importance to him.

After the meeting, Assad proclaimed that Israel might attack at any time. Just the words he needs to say if Syria is looking to preempt.

Syria knows that it cannot defeat Israel, but it does not need to. Following Sadat’s 1973 example, Assad may be planning a surprise attack on Israel with mid-range missiles to deflect Israel from attacking Iran and force meaningful talks on the return of the Golan Heights.

Small groups of Arabs threw rocks as Border Police in Hebron. Notably, the Arabs did not try to break into the Jewish Quarter, knowing full well that local residents would show much less restraint than soldiers.

The more they riot, the harder it will be for the Israeli government to withdraw from Hebron and leave the settlers alone there. For some time, IDF has quietly been withdrawing from the settlements (most recently Beit Yatir and Shani), while taking weapons away from the settlers.
