Sarkozy calls Netanyahu a liar: Quarrels end, but words once spoken never die

Have you heard about President Sarkozy of France telling President Obama that Benjamin Netanyahu was a liar? The French president was unaware that the microphone had been switched on. Behind the image of unity and smiles in front of cameras, world leaders disagree on many issues. It would be honorable for Nicolas Sarkozy to say it […]

US keeps making same mistakes in foreign policy and wonders why people are hostile: A hyena cannot smell its own stench

The UN, Israel, and the United States are up against the wall. Mahmoud Abbas’ bid for Palestinian Statehood is a big move and a big test that exposes the biased attitude of the United States. If the UN was not a puppet of the West, Palestinians would have their own state already, living side by side with […]

Former Israeli President Moshe Katsav has been sentenced by a panel of three judges in Tel Aviv to seven years in jail for sexual assault and rape. He also has been ordered to pay compensation to his two victims. It is a national embarrassment for the Jewish state. Sexual appetite and power are the worst […]

US should speak against Israeli settlements in Palestine: A person who does not speak out against the wrong is a mute devil

If you want justice, you must work for peace. The US has vetoed the U.N. resolution declaring Israeli settlements illegal. It is disappointing. President Obama is basically following the steps of George W. Bush regarding policy in the Middle East. This unfortunate move sends the wrong message to the Arab world–especially the Palestinians–that the United States is […]

US and Israel shouldn’t worry about a new Egyptian government: If you keep your head and heart going in the right direction, you don’t have to worry about your feet

US and Israel shouldn’t worry about a new Egyptian government: If you keep your head and heart going in the right direction, you don’t have to worry about your feet

It is true, it is better to deal with the devil you know than the one you don’t. Egypt’s troubles do not affect only the US but the whole Middle East. Israel signed a peace treaty with Egypt. Nobody knows if the Muslim extremists will take over Egypt, and if so, what type of relations the future Egyptian […]

Prevent Iran from making a nuclear weapon: When the head of a snake is cut off, the rest of his body is an ordinary rope

The whistleblower site Wikileaks has certainly succeeded in getting world attention. It also helps us to know what world leaders think in the shadows and the way they play a double game between nations on important international matters. So far, the countries of the Arab Gulf are certainly the ones being shamed in their stand against […]

Ahmadinejad no hero: Courage is not the same as fighting someone stronger than you

President Ahmadinejad received a hero’s welcome in Lebanon. Seen as a warrior who challenged the West, the Iranian president’s visit caused some concern in the US. Many saw his trip as provocation that could lead to war between Hezbollah, supported by Iran, and the state of Israel. Nothing happened. As usual, he denounced and criticised […]

Mahmoud Abbas is courageous: You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try

Mahmoud Abbas is courageous: You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try

The confrontational regime of Iran has already predicted the failure of talks between Palestinians and Israelis. Tension is high between the Palestinian authority and Teheran. For sure, for the hard core Islamists, anyone who deals peacefully with Israel is seen as a traitor. The truth is, Israel will not be wiped off the world map, and […]

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 […]

Hope for Israeli-Palestinian peace: If you can walk, you can dance; if you can talk, you can sing

The Palestinians and Israel have agreed to resume peace talks after more than 20 months of disagreement. Both Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority leader President Abbas will meet in Washington to restart talks. It is unclear what each side is willing to give up in order to reach a definitive peace and the […]
