Tucked away in a lovely area south of Aza Street in West Jerusalem is the President’s Residence. It is guarded by one or two security policemen, and serves as the office and residence of the current holder of the office, Shimon Peres. Peres is the longest serving politician in Israel.

His political life stretches all the way back to when he was David Ben Gurion’s emissary.

When his predecessor was run out of office in a scandal (rape/sexual harassment) and imprisoned, Prime Minister Netanyahu backed the elder statesman, hoping to sideline him from all the very...

In a land where heroism is almost common, Uri Bar-Lev is an unlikely hero, but that he is. Now in his 80s, he is the man who stopped the terrorist hijacking of an El Al jet decades ago.

The following article from the Times of Israel gives the details of how he and his crew and sky marshalls foiled the high jacking of his plane. It is exciting reading:

With the world’s attention focused on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, a retired El Al pilot, a veteran of five armed hijacking attempts and plots, including one movie-worthy standoff at 29,000 feet, splashed...

Just a day after we wrote about a raging government that is intent of enslaving Americans and creeping Islam’s cultural warfare, Breitbart came out with the story below about how the Environmental Protection Agency (nice, positive title for a rampant property control agency) is now trying to take individual rights away from Americans.

Last month news was released about a farmer who built a pond so his kids could swim and fish on his own property. He is now facing $75,000 fines for EVERY DAY he resists government control.

Now we...

Sometimes it is easy to forget that not all Muslims want to blow everyone up. Some of these folks have fled their repressive and terroristic homelands to find a place to raise their children and live in peace.

While that may be true, it is said that the sharks always swim among fish schools to hide.

That is repeatedly proven as terrorists are discovered seeming to live peaceful lives while plotting their havoc on various nations.

In Denmark for instance, years ago there were entire neighborhoods where fire and rescue would not enter...

Sheikh Ahmed Yassin’s death was celebrated in Gaza this week with a 10,000 strong sea of green clad Hamas supporters.

A founder of the terrorist group Hamas, he was killed on March 24, 2004 by an air raid aimed directly at him after bragging about terrorist attacks against Israel. His replacement was killed a month later for the same brags.

Ismail Haniyeh has been somewhat more circumspect. And when Hamas does confront Israel he makes sure he is ensconsed in a hospital or school, knowing Israel will not strike them.

Hamas rose from around...

We met Saeb Erekat at a conference in Tel Aviv in 2007. I was surprised at his suave demeanor and presence, to be honest. He is a master communicator. That he majors in disinformation was not a surprise.

About the same time I came into information that was revealed by a close friend in the PA, but which I’m sure Erekat would not have chosen to have revealed.

Living at Jericho, he overheard his son speaking to another youngster about becoming a shahid, or martyr. In other words a suicide bomber. The man said that Erekat...

“The most difficult problem as a senior officer, is how to get into the head of the platoon or company commanders, who do not have the experience, who did not serve in south Lebanon, who did not hold the security zone, who never met a roadside bomb in their lives. How do you explain to them the threat and the manner in which they are supposed to act?” (Unnamed IDF senior officer quote)

This was in the aftermath of two roadside bombings aimed at IDF personnel in the Golan Heights. Israel and Syria share a border here. And now it seems that Hezbollah is moving in...

The PA security forces (pictured here) were warned to stay out of Jenin’s refugee camp on Saturday as IDF units went in after a Hamas terrorist. And our read is that they were happy to do it.

“The nature of the fatal confrontation Saturday morning between elite Israeli police personnel and the wanted 22-year-old Hamas operative, Hamza Abu al-Hija, underlined a central aspect of the new reality in the refugee camps of the West Bank: Palestinian Authority security forces generally stay out of the camps, and especially those in Jenin and Nablus. PA forces did...

The Washington Post is not famous for its conservative stands. And up until recently it seemed to be in President Obama’s camp. No longer.

There is little doubt in our mind that Obama has lost much of his media shield with outlets that want to retain even a vestige of their reputation.

So it was with mixed emotions that we read the piece exposing the fact that Obama “misjudged Abbas.” Golly, we’re stunned.

WaPo: Obama Misjudged Abbas, Setting Stage for “Breakdown” in Peace Talks

Get ready for the tears and fury. On Wednesday Israel’s government approved the construction of another 186 homes. That is not single family dwellings, but apartments. And the building is for East Jerusalem.

The PA will rant and rave while their Palestinian brethren quietly celebrate the jobs this will mean for them. In Israel most of the work is done by them and the management of the sites is Israeli.

Why East Jerusalem? Well, frankly it is multi-faceted. The land was taken from Jordan in the 1967 war, so it doesn’t belong to the Palestinians....
