Lessons from Netanyahu’s speech

Not new, but newly clarified and crystallized, are these points about the Iran negotiations emerging from Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech before Congress March 3:

• Iran is a bad actor, with a decades-old history of terrorism against Americans, Israelis, Syrians, Jordanians, Lebanese, Yemenis, Kurds and others.

Four innocent Jewish men gunned down. A Jewish young woman, waiting for a ride, stabbed to death. A beautiful two-year-old girl critically injured by rock-wielding assailants, dead two years later. These events did not occur in France. They did not occur in Scandinavia, the UK or Belgium. They happened in Israel. Yet, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would have you think that the calculus is black and white: Jews in Europe are in mortal danger; Jews in Israel are perfectly safe. If ...

Muslim ‘Friendship Ring’

The long-range solution to radical Islam’s love of death is not a social uplift effort. It is an idea: a reformation of Islam or a return to its true nature — take your pick. It doesn’t matter, so long as anti-Semitic and anti-Western hate and death-embrace are extirpated from practicing Islamic communities.
