Iran

Iran is a longstanding sponsor of worldwide terror groups and several countries have implicated it for involvement in terrorist activities. It provides aid in the form of weapons, training, and funding to Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Iraq-based militants, and Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. Hezbollah grew out the 1979 revolution and is a direct proxy of Iran.

Mahmoud Ahmadinjad, Iran’s President, continues to push revisionist theories, Holocaust denial, anti-Zionist rhetoric in an agenda that includes “wiping Israel off the map. Iran’s nuclear ambition is well-documented, and is an ongoing threat to Israel and the world. Iran recently cancelled its plan to send aid flotillas to Gaza and cited “Israeli restrictions” as the reason.

  • The UN is No Friend to Israel This Thursday, Palestine hopes to achieve non-member observer state status in the United Nations General assembly.  It is likely that they will succeed. This recognition continues a trend of what can be described as at best, cold, and at worst, hostile, relations between the United Nations and Israel. Throughout the United Nation’s history, Israel has been ...
  • The Substance of Hate For what is hopefully the last time, the leaders of the world at the United Nations General Assembly were unfairly forced to endure another vitriolic speech from the “President” of Iran.  I use the term President loosely, for the Iranian people suffer under Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s rule, despite his claims of service to the noble people ...
  • We Stand In what likely is a cosmic joke, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Iran will be addressing the UN on the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, Yom Kippur. Likely, it’s just a complete accident and the irony is lost on Iran. If the day was chosen as an insult, it only shows the cowardice of the ...
  • Israel’s Existential Risk from Iran Question: Why #Israel can have NBC weapons and not #Iran? Answer: Israel does not pose an existential threat to its neighbors. –from the @actforisrael twitter feed. Israel acquired nuclear weapons as a deterrent.  Military victory conditioned many to see the Israeli Defense Force as a potent juggernaut capable of taking on any foe.  This was an image that Israel was ...
  • The Humanity of Grief I was planning on writing about Iran today, but the news has overtaken me. I’ve been thinking about the terrorist attack in Bulgaria.  It was a cold and calculated attack.  According to the Bulgarian government the Mossad’s safety alert for Burgas had been lifted.  The terrorists knew that Israeli tourists were coming.  They knew which buses ...
  • Israel is a Light in the Darkness for Women Living in the Arab World It is a truism that any society and culture can be judged by how it treats its most vulnerable members. We can take this further by saying that it is possible to measure a society and culture’s health by looking at how it treats women. If we use this standard then most Middle Eastern countries fare ...
  • Mavi Marmara Sequel: Knife-Weilding ‘Aid’ Ship Goes to Court Originally published • May 27, 2012 • Breitbart.com Does polit­i­cal pos­tur­ing pass as an indict­ment in Turkey’s judi­cial sys­tem these days? Is Turk­ish Pres­i­dent Recep Tayipp Erdo­gan using a page from the old Arab League, post-Shah Iran­ian play­book again? Will Turkey’s poorly-written sequel about an “aid” ship with “peace­ful human­i­tar­i­ans” car­ry­ing rice and beans (i.e., provo­ca­teurs with ...
  • You Can’t Take the Crazy Out of Ahmadinejadisms Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to blog about issues affecting Israel and the Middle East. Currently, skepticism in Israel is high as Iran readies to sign a deal with the IAEA just before the 6-Power talks get underway in Baghdad. Israeli leaders have good reason to be skeptical of anything Iran signs with ...
  • With Love From Iran Today, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson offered a tidbit that I couldn’t help but nibble on. In his latest threat, Ramin Mehmanparast told the semiofficial Mehr news agency Thursday that if Google doesn’t restore the name of the Persian Gulf to its Google Maps service, the internet giant could face “serious damages.” Given this logic, what’s ...
  • Iran Stalls, Bluffs & Denies its Nuclear-Related Military Ambitions When faced with more Iranian stonewalling regarding inspecting its Parchin military facility suspected of nuclear-related military research, nothing holds truer than the proverb: “If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and looks like a duck, it must be a duck.” Now, the UK Ambassador to Israel, Matthew Gould is speaking out that ...
