Hamas doesn’t get it: Do not try to fight a lion if you are not one yourself

Peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians have started in Washington. Like always, when both sides meet for talks, the extremists of both sides do everything to stop the progress. Yitzhak Rabin was killed by Jewish extremists. Anwar El Sadat of Egypt paid the price for making peace with Israel. Mahmoud Abbas is seen by Hamas as a traitor. For […]

Benjamin Netanyahu Defends Israel’s Attack: Excuses are always mixed with lies.

Despite world condemnation of the raid on an humanitarian ship that led to the death of nine people, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is still defiant, justifying the commandos’ actions. A great leader has the capacity to accept that mistakes were made and to apologize. Turkey is one of the rare Muslim countries to recognize Israel. […]

Bloody Israeli Raid On Gaza Aid Flotilla: A bad habit that lasts more than a year may turn into a custom.

Is Israel for or against peace? The assault by Israeli commandos on a Turkish ship carrying activists bringing humanitarian aid to Gaza certainly makes one wonder if Israel is for or against peace. As usual, Israel’s allies are slow to condemn this terrible act, including the US. The US is showing their other ally Turkey that the […]

Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of Hamas: a crocodile running away from rain to seek refuge in the river.

Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of a Hamas founder, has revealed in a new book “Son of Hamas” that he was a Shin Bet spy for 10 years. The news is a shock in Gaza and among the Palestinian people. Of course the reaction of Hamas was to deny that he was part of their organization. […]

When a king has good counselors, his reign is peaceful.

The new approach of the Obama administration toward Iran is certainly the best chance for real peace between the US and Iran. When the politics of two countries diverge, it is the people of both countries that suffer the most. The Obama administration understands the influence of Iran in the Arab world. I don’t see […]

A little rain each day will fill the river to overflowing.

Even after being hit hard in the past weeks by the Israeli army for shooting rockets, it seems that the terrorist group Hamas (or resistance group for it supporters) didn’t learn their lesson. Hamas fired five rockets into Israel. For those who have been following this deadly conflict, the scenario is the same. The rain […]

Believe what you see, and lay aside what you hear.

Believe what you see, and lay aside what you hear.

The Israelis and Hamas have agreed on a cease-fire after three weeks of violent struggle. I am not sure if Israel has achieved its goal: destroy all the tunnels that Hamas uses to smuggle weapons from Egypt and stop the firing of rockets in southern Israel. I am not a psychic, but I can predict […]

Silence is more than just a lack of words.

Silence is more than just a lack of words.

In spite of the calls from the international community to end the hostilities between the Israeli troops and Hamas, the Israeli government seems very determined to punish and destroy the Palestinian extremist group. There have been a lot of escalations between the two belligerent parties in the past, but this war is certainly the most […]

A distant fire does not burn.

A distant fire does not burn.

Iranian protesters burned Obama‘s picture and the flags of American and Israel, to show their solidarity with the people of Gaza and Hamas. This behavior is not surprising. It is the culture in the Middle East. Iran supports anything anti-American and anti-Jewish. This kind of behavior also sends a message to the new American administration […]

Fire doesn’t make fire, but ashes.

Fire doesn’t make fire, but ashes.

The Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal accused Israel on Saturday of perpetrating a holocaust in Gaza. So far, Hamas — terrorist group for some, resistance group for others — is succeeding by presenting Israelis as cold blooded killers of innocent Palestinian civilians. The aggressors become the victims. This strategy, called by Hamas “the CNN strategy,” fools […]
