The willingness of the West to stand by while ISIS spread and grew stronger has never, to this day, been satisfactorily explained. In retrospect, it is obvious that by failing to destroy ISIS in its early years, the West defeated itself.

As a Jew, Schumer is not allowed to "break ranks" and make up his own mind based on his clear thinking. In doing so, he is clearly an "Israel-firster" and a "Netanyahu marionette".

Netanyahu and his coalition know they're losing the American Jewish community, and they are very aware they're losing the rest of the world as well. The possibility of a UN effort to resolve the conflict has never been greater, nor has the American willingness to pursue it.

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is right to criticize the nuclear deal between world powers and Iran. Indeed, it is not a good deal -- certainly not from an Israeli perspective. But it is Netanyahu who should be blamed for that.

He was let out early, before the parade, serving a fraction of the time Palestinians are sentenced for attempted murder. He even publicized his intentions before the parade. It makes you wonder about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's commitment to the safety and security of all Israelis.

Netanyahu Is the Horseman of the Jewish Apocalypse

TEL AVIV -- Netanyahu is an ideologue of Jewish catastrophe: risks and challenges cannot be approached with a view toward resolution; they must be held up as reminders for the Jewish people to keep up their guard.

Oren's Orgy of Self-Justification

James Zogby | Posted 07.04.2015 | Politics
James Zogby

The book is instructive and disturbing on many levels. First and foremost, I was struck by the arrogance and the sense of impunity with which Ally was written. No one who criticizes Israel is spared from Oren's venomous pen. Two targets receive special attention: President Obama and liberal American Jews.

James Zogby | Posted 06.13.2015 | Politics
James Zogby

Israel acts with impunity in seizing Palestinian land, demolishing Palestinian homes and denying basic freedoms to Palestinians. Israel then acts to sanction the Palestinian Authority by refusing to transfer tax revenues that are legally Palestinian funds. But when confronted with a dose of the same medicine, Netanyahu not only screams "foul," he denounces his adversaries as "anti-Semites" and threatens severe retaliation.
