Reflecting his boss's misconceptions, he gets Turkey and the Palestinians wrong, and talks about Iran in a different key than the Israeli leadership. There are signs that one can interpret as the Israeli leadership being close to the end of its tether on the Iranian issue. However, I've thought so before; caution is advised. I discuss today on Frontpage.
I gave up writing fiction about ten years ago, finding it singularly unprofitable. However, the mind, or the unconscious--whatever one wants to call it--continues this activity even after "I" have stopped. I delve into this situation in my weekly PJ Lifestyle column.
Ongoing Palestinian and, apparently, Syrian delusions, but shows genuine friendliness toward Israel. Ayatollah Khamenei is rattled by Obama's notable words Wednesday evening seeming to green-light an Israeli move on Iran. I discuss today on Frontpage.
Try to be nice to the Palestinian people, and this is what you get. Israelis have known this for a while--ever since we created the Palestinian Authority and kept offering it statehood, and in return we got suicide bombers and rocket bombardments. (Some of us already understood the picture, before the Palestinian Authority was created.) Now, try getting someone like Obama to understand this--that Israel is a democracy and is not the bad guy in the picture, but, rather, the (if sometimes naive) good guy. I think that even if Obama were to walk into the midst of the anti-Obama riots now occurring in the Palestinian Authority, he still wouldn't get it. It would mean becoming some sort of Netanyahu-like person--the worst horror imaginable.
