Now Exposed: Iran Already Waging War Against Israel

E-mail Print PDF
On August 16, the Israeli Army revealed that Iran has been directing terrorist attacks from Syria against Israelis in the Golan Heights region. Nobody paid attention. Four days later, Iranian-sponsored rockets from Syria struck Israel’s Upper Galilee. Is anybody listening now?

For weeks, supporters of Israel have been...

Really, Mr. President? ‘Rockets Falling on Tel Aviv’?

“Rockets will fall on Tel Aviv,” President Obama warned on August 4, claiming that if his Iran deal is rejected, military conflict will inevitably ensue.

Mr. Obama seems to be betting that the rest of us have forgotten that Iranian rockets already fell on Tel Aviv last year.

If rockets fell when there was no agreement in 2014, why should Israelis be frightened by warnings that rockets will fall if there is no agreement in 2015?

There was a time, not so long ago, when Tel Aviv seemed immune from the dangers brewing in Gaza. Sure, border towns such as Sderot, and even Ashdod, might be menaced. But Tel Aviv is 44 miles from Gaza. Who could imagine that Hamas would have rockets capable...

Kicking the Can Down the Road With Iran

Over the past few weeks, I have had the opportunity to look over the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran and discuss the finer points of the deal with experts who have analyzed its text. The details are important, but I am concerned that, conceptually, the underlying logic and reason to support or oppose the agreement is being lost. In my profession we call this a ‘Harvard Death,’ a term that refers to a situation when there are perfect lab results but the patient dies due to the doctors failing to look directly at the patient and notice the ultimately big fatal problems.

Iran, as we all agree, is the leading state sponsor of terrorism, expansionist in its influence...

Ad Hominem Advocacy: Obama’s Harm Offensive on Iran

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), known to all as the Iran deal, is a moral and strategic capitulation to the virulently anti-American, anti-Israel and anti-Semitic leadership of Iran. It fails to achieve its core purpose of preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons, has a laughably insufficient inspection regime, allows continued enrichment with drastically limited inspections, and will allow hundreds of millions of dollars to flow to the world’s leading sponsor of terror with no strings attached.

Small wonder, then, that Americans oppose the deal two to one, and polls show that the more people know about the deal, the more adverse to it they become. In Israel...

Jewish Lives Matter; All Lives Matter A Call to Action to Defeat the Misguided Iran Deal

It was less than 75 years ago that American Jewry, willingly or unwillingly, abandoned their brethren in Europe and passively witnessed six million Jews perish in the Holocaust. Yes, we did help a few survivors after the fact; but for most, it was too late. Whether it was the denial of entry to those on the St. Louis, denials of visa requests, unfilled immigration quotas, aborted plans to create temporary havens or bombing the rail lines to Auschwitz, American Jewry found it expedient to take no for an answer.

It appears to be no coincidence that the survival of six million innocent Jewish lives is again at risk. They live in Israel and face an existential threat from Iran and its...
