Tweet I don’t believe there is anyone in the world who knows more about the UN’s ugly obsession with Israel than Anne Bayefsky. In this short video, she nicely sums it up. Almost none of this is new to me, but I appreciate her calm, objective, organized approach to the information. The only thing that [...]

Tweet Jonah Goldberg on the disgrace that is the U.N. Charles Krauthammer on the misnamed “Arab Spring,” which is really an Islamist ascendency.
Tweet Another powerful Danny Ayalon video. Watch it, then, please, please, please share it with people. (Or view it here if it doesn’t load on my webpage.) Incidentally, will it make you feel better to know that Danny Ayalon, reciting just the facts set forth in the above video, is causing some embarrassment for the [...]
Tweet Others have said it, but I like best the way Evelyn Gordon said it. After confirming the historic accuracy of Newt’s claim (namely, that Arabs moved into the land at the end of the 19th century, rather than having lived there since time immemorial), Gordon goes on: One might ask why this should matter: [...]
Tweet Over the years, I helped win at least two major cases because I re-framed the debate. In one case, a will contest case, the opposing party claimed that our client, a housekeeper, had committed fraud and elder abuse in order to inveigle a little old lady into leaving the housekeeper a substantial chunk of [...]
Tweet What Israelis would like to say: And what Netanyahu, with courage and honesty, actually said at the UN:
Tweet Ed Morrissey has put together a very useful post summarizing various liberal media attempts to understand the Obama doctrine. Morrissey concludes at the end that, try as hard as one likes, “There really is no doctrine.” Morrissey is correct that there is no doctrine if one is looking for a verbally articulated doctrine. Obama [...]
Tweet This is the public outreach YouTube site for the Israel Defense Forces. Bookmark it, send it to your friends, check it often. Here is the latest IDF real time video from the ship boarding, showing the “peace” activists in full fury: The West is being played — although perhaps that’s the wrong thing to [...]
Tweet Sadie sent me a great trio of stories today, and I want to pass them on to you: The UN wants to make sure that the Western nation’s efforts to protect themselves against cross-dressing jihadists (you know, those guys who don burqas to hide bombs) don’t offend transgendered individuals (who may or may not [...]
Tweet I’ve long been a Netanyahu fan — going back to the 1970s. He is a brilliant man, a strong executive, an effective communicator, and, as he showed at the UN, he has a moral compass. Obama could take lessons:
Tweet When it comes to Obama’s speech before the UN, Brett Schaefer and Nile Gardiner are both kind enough to attribute to naivete what I’m increasingly sure is a malignant combination of anti-American feeling and antisemitism. In the same vein, Paul, at PowerLine, a blogger who has tried to be level-headed about Obama, professes himself [...]
Tweet You’ve already read that the Big O (an increasingly empty hole if there ever was one) is now set to give the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Mary Robinson, the Irish woman who has cheerfully led the UN into ever deeper antisemitic, anti-American depravity. Jennifer Rubin sums up beautifully the only two possibilities that [...]
Tweet It will be interesting to see how Obama’s talks with Netanyahu go. Netanyahu is light years ahead of Obama in terms of intelligence and experience. Obama, however, has dense ideological filaments in his brain that may render him incapable of deviating from his biases. In other words, I doubt that anything Netanyahu says will [...]
Tweet The head of the UN General Assembly just called Israel an “apartheid” state. In other words, Israel is emblematic of evil in the world. I’ve finally realized what the problem is: Israel has a mixed population. Think about it: Iraq expelled her Jews and hounded her Christians into obscurity. Saudi Arabia makes it illegal [...]
Tweet Just yesterday, I harked back to and updated an old post that commented, in part, on the fact that the UN is saved from ultimate malevolence only by its gross inefficiency and internal corruption. With perfect timing, this story appeared in today’s news: The U.N. Human Rights Council, frequently accused of coddling some of [...]
Tweet Ymarsakar brought to my attention a post I wrote over three years ago. I’m reprinting a slightly edited version here, not just because I think it describes well the Arab psyche that drives so much of current international politics (and fears) today, but also because I think it does a good job of describing [...]
Tweet I ask, because I hope that’s what Israel does when it receives this request.
Tweet The title of my post was a fatuous, smarmy expression during its heyday in the 1960s. With the UN “peacekeepers,” though, it’s taken on a whole, horrible new meaning: Sexual abuse of children as young as six by aid workers and United Nations peacekeepers has continued unchecked despite repeated promises to stamp it out, [...]
Tweet I blogged here about the group that presented a report to the UN to point out what many of us have already realized: Muslims are using declarations of human rights as a way to shut down all religions and speech but theirs. Patrick, my favorite Paragraph Farmer, took that dry report and drew the [...]
Tweet Okay, maybe the UN will listen to the report from the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU) but, somehow, I doubt it: Islamic states are bidding to use the United Nations to limit freedom of expression and belief around the world, the global humanist body IHEU told the U.N.’s Human Rights Council on Wednesday. [...]
Tweet For a year, Gaza has rained over 2,000 rockets onto Israeli soil, aiming specifically for civilian communities. There was, of course, nary a peep from the UN. Now that Israel has struck back, targeting specifically militants who happen to hide amongst civilian populations, the UN Rights Council springs into action: The U.N. Human Rights [...]
