Abbas: No recognition of Israel as Jewish state. Palestinian leader to visit White House on March 17.
(Washington, D.C.) — Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas is scheduled to meet with President Obama at the White House on March 17th.

Epicenter, Chapter 7 (2006): “Future Headline: A Czar Rises In Russia, Raising Fears of a New Cold War.”
(Washington, D.C.) — Recently, I was criticized for describing Vladimir Putin as a “Czar” and a danger to the U.S., Europe and Israel. On that charge, I plead guilty. I do believe Putin is a Czar, and I believe he sees himself that way. It’s a case I’ve been making going back at least as far as 2004. […]

Hillary Clinton Compares Putin to Hitler. Eric Cantor warns we aren’t learning the lessons of Auschwitz. So does Netanyahu. Are they right?
(Washington, D.C.) – It is said that those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. Do Americans really remember the history of World War II, why it started and how it got out of control?

Quoting the Bible, Netanyahu says Israel must “choose life” in “historic” conflicts with Iran & Palestinians. Day Three report from AIPAC conference.
(Washington, D.C.) — Let’s put it this way: if Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided to jump into the 2016 presidential race, I suspect he would be far and away the front-runner for both the GOP and Democrat nominations. He has enormous bipartisan support at the grassroots, and overwhelming support on Capitol Hill. I lost […]
