Pro Israel Presidential Candidate

2016-05-16T14:39:56+00:00

Which Presidential candidate is pro-Israel and why should we care? Because the Middle East conflict will not go away if we ignore it. If we think we can avoid engaging Israel's enemies in an attempt to protect ourselves we have fooled ourselves into a false hope of peace. The enemies of Israel, led by Ayatollah Khamenei who believe the End of Days has come, declare that they need nuclear weapons to destroy not just one country, Israel, which they call “the Little Satan,” but also the United States, which they call “the Great Satan.” Just as the three Americans thwarted the [...]

(Central Israel) — Today, Israelis are celebrating our Independence Day. On the Western calendar, we remember May 14th, 1948. But on the Jewish calendar, today marks 67 years since the dramatic, prophetic rebirth of the Jewish State. A few thoughts to mark the occasion: It’s a very special time for our family as it’s our first time celebrating as new Israeli citizens (“Olim Chadashim”) and actually living here full-time in the epicenter. Today, Lynn showed me this video about some of the things new Israelis love about this country. Take a look — I hope you’re as moved as we were. It’s a great time to see the [...]

(Central Israel) — On Thursday evening, rather than pore over the details of the deal that the P5+1 just struck with Iran regarding its nuclear program, I took one of my sons to a wonderful Passover Seder attended by Jewish and non-Jewish friends in Kfar Shmaryahu, a suburb of Tel Aviv. Tonight, our entire family is looking forward to attending a Seder with Jewish and Arab friends near Netanya. Please forgive me, therefore, for not writing sooner about the deal. A few brief observations for now: First, some context: Earlier this week, a top Iranian militia leader said the destruction of Israel was [...]

Malaysia Mystery Solved

2014-07-27T17:20:30+00:00

Of all of the possibly scenarios of what really has happened to the missing commercial jet aircraft from Malaysia here is another hypothesis; 1. The missing Malaysia jet did NOT go south. Instead it took a course North West and landed somewhere. The passengers were removed and hopefully spared but probably not. The jet was stripped on the inside and a nuclear device has been loaded. It is now waiting for the right timing to go into flight toward Israel. A likely target would be Tel Aviv. When it is launched Israel identifies it just in the nick of time and [...]
