The Palestinian Authority's Policy of Duplicity by Khaled Abu Toameh
“Abbas is trying to show the US and the EU that he is serious about fighting the Hamas in the West Bank, and that is why he deserves a state and more funding. What the Americans and Europeans do not know is that many of these detainees are released within hours or days.”

The U.S. Should Throw its Support Behind an Israeli Strike by John Bolton
The odds are long, time is short, and the choice is stark. But since a nuclear-armed Iran will change the world forever, America should support an Israeli attack as the least-worst option.

No Surprise: America Under Attack Again in the Mideast by John Bolton
“President Obama’s highest priority, namely his re-election, is obviously foremost in his calculations. His “success” in Libya, overthrowing Gadhafi without U.S. casualties, now lies in tragic ruins in Benghazi. His narrative that the global war on terror is essentially over is revealed as a sham. And his claim that he could reverse decades of anti-American feelings through “outreach,” concessions and apologies, is shattered irretrievably.”

Canada PM Sees Iran as “Clear and Present Danger”
Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada, said the government of Iran constitutes, “unambiguously, a clear and present danger and thus demands a very sober assessment.”

How UK Can Learn From Israel's Tech Success
While it may be desirable to try to replicate the success of Israel's tech firms, it may be better to learn through collaboration.
“Israel can boast more tech start-ups per capital than any other country in the world. So what can the UK learn from the country?

Elliot Abrams: Riots, Rage, Videos, Politics, and Free Speech
Just today, to take another example, I came across the most recent Palestinian Media Watch report on the defamation of Judaism in official broadcasts of the Palestinian Authority.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون
This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 11 years and over 23,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
