When listing the world’s most notorious terrorist organizations, why is it that Al-Qaeda, ISIS and Boko Haram so quickly spring to mind, while Hezbollah is frequently forgotten? In this video, Tony Badran, Research Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, explains how the backing of Iran has served to legitimize Hezbollah on the world stage, while simultaneously making the group all the more dangerous.
Ami Horowitz breaks down the details of Iran’s nuclear secrets in the aftermath of America’s withdrawal from the Iran Nuclear Deal.
Do you remember how the left told us that anti-Semitism was resurgent in America because of President Trump’s election?
Funny how the left always projects its own ideological pathologies on Conservatives.
Benjamin Netanyahu’s relationship with Vladimir Putin is unusually complex.
However, within the layers of political and military considerations is, on Putin’s side, a little known personal connection. When Putin was a child he had a grade school teacher who made a huge impression on him. She took an interest in little Putin and encouraged him in positive ways. The teacher was Jewish. Putin never forgot her kindness. In fact, Putin purchased a lovely apartment in Tel Aviv as a gift to his old teacher. Perhaps, just perhaps, this relationship has made the Russian tyrant more receptive to the security needs of the Jewish state.
J.E. Dyer is a retired Naval Intelligence officer who lives in Southern California.
I have been following her work for a while and a few years ago Karen and I attended one of her lectures. She is smart, blessedly undramatic, and extremely knowledgable about military matters and the geopolitics of the Mideast.
Her analysis of the latest Israeli raid into Syria is superb.
Iranian forces in southern Syria launched 20 rockets at Israel in the Golan Heights on the night of 9 May (10 May in Israel). Now Israel appears to have launched a counter operation, whose goal is probably to significantly disable Iranian capabilities in Syria. The scope of the targeting, just in the first few hours, indicates a broad-scale, preemptive interdiction.
Will sanctions alone bring down the IslamoNazis of Iran?
I doubt it.
But it’s worth trying.
And then, when sanctions fail, Israel should attack with their extremely capable air force and flatten all Iranian nuclear sites.
Remember, Israel eliminated the nuclear programs of Iraq and Syria. Of course, the international community wagged their collective finger and clucked their thick tongues about Israeli aggression. But is there anyone sane who is not relieved that Syria and Iraq are not nuclear powers today?
