    Obama undid his Cairo speech  

    What lies behind Obama’s Jerusalem sycophancy?

    Abdel Bari Atwan, Editor in Chief of Alquds Alarabi Newspaper

    Never in my life have I seen a US President beg for the approval of the
    Israelis while demeaning himself in the process quite like Barack Obama
    has done during his current trip. This is all the more remarkable given
    his immense historical significance as the first non-white candidate to
    win the American presidency.

    People expected this president to be different from his predecessors,
    precisely because he belonged to a group of people who have suffered
    persecution over the centuries. Obama used to speak about the
    humiliating racial segregation his grandparents and other relatives
    faced in Chicago when they were banned from sitting with white people on

    Why is Israel in U.S. cross hairs?  

    Exclusive: Joseph Farah prays for continued impasse in ‘2-state solution’ negotiations

    by Joseph Farah, WND

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Here’s what John Kerry said last week in anticipation of his first trip to the Middle East as secretary of state: “There is no more urgent foreign policy priority in 2013 than restarting negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians. The region and the world can’t afford the current dangerous impasse in the peace process; for if we don’t make progress very soon, then the two-state solution could become impossible to achieve.”

    I hope I am not alone in praying for and advocating for the impasse to continue and for the complete failure of any peace process that ends in dividing the land of Israel – again.

    What do I mean by “again”?

    Did Israel `Apologize’ to Turkey? Well, No, Not Exactly  

    By Barry Rubin

    Israel apologizes to Turkey, reads every headline. That simply isn’t true in the sense it is taken to imply. To understand what happened one must examine the long negotiations on this issue.

    It is important to understand that the flotilla issue was not the cause of Israel-Turkish problems, which had begun long before. The real basis was the election of an Islamist government in Turkey. Discussions inside the Israeli government for years had known Prime Minister Mehdi Erdogan’s hatred for Israel but did not want to be seen as responsible for any breakdown of relations.
