We have suffered another health challenge and are forced to go for another sabbatical until further notice.

Facebook has been filled with photos and video of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu beside an Israeli Air Force officer as they apply an Israel Star to the fuselage of a shiny new F-35 fighter. Two of fifty destined for Israel arrived this week, just before Bibi went to visit Azerbaijan.

It won’t hurt his creds any that he now has two jets capable of sneaking into Iran should the need arrive. Of course there will be weeks of training for the crews, technicians, etc. before the stealth fighters...

Amona’s entrance.

“On Monday evening, opposition leader Isaac Herzog warned it sets the stage for nothing less than “national suicide,” while Jewish Home head Naftali Bennett championed it as paving the path to expanding Israeli sovereignty into the West Bank.” (Times of Israel)

The so called Regulation Bill isn’t law – yet – and not in any final form, but it is already getting lots of hearts hopeful and some more than a little resentful.

It’s all about Israel annexing...

With the look of an angry raptor, retired Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn has been one of my favorites in the military intelligence community for a long time. His last job was as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. President Obama broomed him because he wouldn’t toe the mark like so many of the current Pentagon brass.

As some of our readers know, who also read our Jake Crabtree series of adventure novels, Jake and his...

On this map of Lebanon, we’ll point out a couple of areas of general interest to you.

In the lower part is the Litani River. When Israel went into Lebanon in the early 1980s and left a few years later, the agreement was that from the river south was to belong to the Christian Lebanese. The idea being that they were allied to Israel and would protect Israel’s northern border.

That did not happen, Hezbollah moving into...

I remember standing in line at the grocery store in Jerusalem while a man tried to pay for his groceries. He went through no less than ten credit cards before he found one with enough on it to pay the twenty dollars or so necessary.

As anyone who lives in Jerusalem, or about anywhere in Israel, for that matter, can tell you, most Israelis live on massive credit. And when it comes to cash, that is another slap in the face....

Israel announced recently that it is buying three new submarines from Germany. The buy has been in the pipeline for quite a while, but when Moshe Ya’alon was Defense Minister and opposed it, things got turned around.

Apparently Boogie didn’t want the boats and Bibi did. That resulted in a shouting match in the Prime Minister’s office. Boogie won that round.

And before you get too excited about the shouting, remember...

It is with joy that I am able to announce that I am back to work on a restricted basis. Cannot fly long distances, but the keyboard is approved.

As some of you may remember, I had a triple bypass on April 1 of this year at the Houston VA hospital. I’d suffered two heart attacks, and according to my doctors was standing with one foot on a banana peel, so they did the surgery.

Let me tell you, the doctors and staff at the...

East Jerusalem is a mixed bag today. There are places that one definitely does not want to visit and other areas where Jews live in relative safety.

Our advice to tourists is that they definitely should not go there without someone who is familiar with the area.

Now the authorities have revealed that they have arrested four residents of this part of Jerusalem for ISIS-related terrorist activities.
