On appeasement: It is quite simple. Feeding wild animals does not make them friendly, it makes them stronger. Howard Newman

למדינה פלסטינית מפורזת, לעולם לא יסכימו הפלסטינים, למדינה פלסטינית מזויינת, לעולם לא תסכים ישראל!  אהוד בן עזר

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true - Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard 1813-1855



What happened in Geneva last week was the most significant international event since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. The collapse of the Soviet Union signaled the rise of the United States as the sole global superpower. The developments in the six-party nuclear talks with Iran in Geneva last week signaled the end of American world leadership.

דלותו של הנימוק הביטחוני
גבריאל בן-עמי

הבה נצייר לעצמנו תסריט דמיוני שבו היינו מציעים למדינות במערב לוותר על שטחי מולדת המהווים מוקדי סכסוך לאומי, במטרה לשפר את מצבן הביטחוני.

הישענות על מערכת הצדקות "רציונליות" ביטחוניות היא בעייתית ומסוכנת לעתיד מדינת ישראל, הן ביטחונית והן לאומית. היא שומטת את הקרקע מתחת לצידקת טענתנו לבעלות היסטורית על הארץ, ובאופן פרדקוסלי דווקא היא פותחת פתח לסכנות ביטחוניות גדולות.


the Balfour Declaration was basically a statement of British policy; it did not establish legal rights. This first occurred with the meeting of the victorious allied powers at San Remo, Italy in 1920, where they adopted the Balfour Declaration in an international agreement. Then in 1922, 51 members of the League of Nations approved the document for the Palestine Mandate.

the Ottoman census already showed a Jewish majority in Safed in the 16th century. European consular reports in the 19th century showed that by the 1860s the Jews re-established their majority in Jerusalem -- decades before British armies took over the Middle East. The Balfour Declaration reflected a historical trend that was already underway, but it did not launch the Jewish return to Eretz Israel.


Today, 18 years after signing the Israel-Jordan Peace Treaty and 18 years after his tragic death, Yitzhak Rabin was lauded by President Barack Obama as a man of peace and courage, who "demonstrated that a commitment to communication, cooperation, and genuine reconciliation can help change the course of history."The following excerpts are taken from Rabin's last public speech to the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) on October 5, 1995, just days before he was murdered, and reveal Rabin's true pragmatic and realistic vision

While many are baffled by Obama's seemingly incoherent policy on Syria, it makes more sense if one looks at it through the prism of what has guided his foreign policy all along:  setting the stage for coercing Israel into accepting a Saudi-style "peace" deal with the Palestinian Arabs. The problem for Obama in the case of Syria, however, is that this point of policy reference led him into a no-win policy quagmire.  The implications of his failure here go well beyond Syria.

Ten Questions for Leftist Two Staters

Should a “Palestinian” state in Judea & Samaria (“West Bank”) be fully independent? If yes, please answer the following questions:

Two Decades of Oslo’s Failure
Sarah Stern

Abandoning existing assumptions is no easy matter. Students of world politics, like politicians, are prisoners of their paradigms, unwilling or unable to escape the premise… and are constantly tempted to cling to familiar assumptions.

The Handshake Delusion
Jeff Jacoby

The notion that an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal is key to a stable Middle East is one of those moldy myths that never seem to lose their popularity. Yet which of the conflicts now roiling the region would come to an end if Israel and the Palestinians were at peace? Syria's civil war? The bloody struggle in Egypt? The resurgence of Al Qaeda?

In a region as backward and broken as the Middle East, wrote Aaron David Miller, a former adviser to six secretaries of state, in a notable 2010 essay in Foreign Policy, "it stretches the bounds of credulity to the breaking point to argue that settling the Arab-Israeli conflict is the most critical issue." It is equally delusional to argue that a "two-state solution" is the way to settle that conflict — that the key to peace is for Israel to give up land on which the Palestinians can establish a state.
