The US’ Enabling Jeopardizes Israel’s Future

President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meet in the Oval Office The United States has been and remains the staunchest supporter of Israel, and its unqualified support will cause significant damage to Israel’s future wellbeing. The US’ continued political, military and economic backing has enabled Israel in the past to maintain the occupation and create new political and physical conditions in the West Bank that have severely undermined, if not destroyed, the prospect of a two-state solution. Every Israeli government, regardless of its political composition, took the US’ support for granted, believing that no American administration...

Basking In The Shadows Of The Ottoman Era

Great Ottoman Empire In Turkey By Sam Ben-Meir and Michael AndersonIf It is hard to fathom why Turkey’s President Erdogan, who embarked on the most impressive social, political, and economic reforms during his first ten years in office, turned around and systematically destroyed all that he had achieved.

The ABCs of Trump’s Political Demise

U.S. President Donald J. Trump, Sr. As we approach the end of Trump’s first year in office, it seems appropriate to survey his performance and his outlook for the future. But right at the onset, one cannot escape the conclusion that, unlike any other of his predecessors, he is a weird and wild president who is devoid of any civility and moral responsibility. In less than a year, the absurd became the norm, ignorance became a virtue, and lying has sadly become the order of the day. He brought shame and dishonor to the most prestigious office in the...
