Analysis: – The Biden White House will have to overcome Jerusalem’s skepticism over the current administration, in the wake of the deadly & politicly humiliating situation in Afghanistan. – The President will likely avoid pressuring Bennett given the fragile nature of his diverse coalition. – Israel’s PM will have to ensure that the White House do more than just make empty promises regarding Iran.
On September 4, 1975, following intense negotiations led by President Gerald Ford and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Israel and Egypt signed the Sinai Interim Agreement. One of the principle stumbling blocks on the way to the agreement was Israel’s concern that the administration wouldn’t honor its commitment to set up an early warning station at Um Hashiba in the Sinai Peninsula manned by 200 American technicians (the station was aimed at providing Israel with up-to-date intelligence on any Egyptian violation of the agreement).

According to Professor Haim Eshed, a retired Israeli general, the “Galactic Federation” has been in contact with Israeli and US administrations for years, but to prevent global hysteria until humanity is ready, it’s being kept a secret.
According to retired Israeli general and current Professor Haim Eshed, the answer is “yes”, but this has been kept a secret because “humanity isn’t ready.”
Speaking in an interview to Yediot Aharonot, Eshed – who served as the head of Israel’s space security program for nearly 30 years and is a three-time recipient of the Israel Security Award – explained that Israel and the US have both been dealing with aliens for years. Continue Reading »
“It was a moment I will never forget…I think the [UNSC] resolution was the lowest place in decades regarding Israel and the US.” says Israeli ambassador of Obama’s choreographed betrayal of the Jewish State at the United Nations.
Danny Danon last week conducted his final press conference as Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations.
His tenure in that position was punctuated by passionate Scripture-based lectures defending Israel’s divine claim to the Holy Land. More than once he opened the Bible before his mostly secular colleagues and read to them form the Word of God.

Analysis: John Bolton’s sudden departure is a loss for Israel because he truly is a great friend of the Jewish State, but Trump’s administration was pro-Israel when the Ambassador arrived and PM Netanyahu’s timely annexation announcement signaled the pro-Israel posture of this President will remain intact even with Bolton’s absence.
John Bolton’s departure from the White House has been the source of considerable concern in Israel. For decades, the veteran diplomat and former UN ambassador has been among the most powerful supporters of a strong US-Israel alliance in Washington.
During his tenure as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, Bolton worked steadily on expanding US-Israel strategic ties across a wide spectrum of critical issues from Iran, to the Palestinians and beyond. Continue Reading »

Putting it mildly, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and then US president Barack Obama had a difficult relationship.
Obama was on the Left, Netanyahu on the Right. They saw the world through very different lenses and disagreed fundamentally both about Iran and the Palestinians. As a result, there were constant fights, name-calling, leaks, and an altogether dysfunctional relationship, as one pundit after the next explained it.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint meeting of Congress in Washington, D.C.
Following a report on Tuesday by Israel’s Foreign Minister announcing IDFs involvement in the US-led naval operation to neutralize the “Iranian threat” in the Strait of Hormuz, Iran’s Defense Ministry warned of “disastrous consequences” should it be true.
Iran’s Defense Ministry warned on Thursday that any Israeli involvement in a US-led naval operation into the Strait of Hormuz would have “disastrous consequences” for the region.
The warning comes as Washington ramps up pressure on the Islamic Republic following a string of incidents that have stirred tensions in the Gulf, including Tehran’s capture of a UK oil tanker last month and the downing of US drone over the Strait of Hormuz earlier in the summer. Continue Reading »
US Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) say they are going to Israel and “Palestine” in order “to learn” about the region. Israel has granted the women permission to enter the country, notwithstanding the overwhelming evidence that their trip has only one purpose: to strengthen the hand of people and organizations that share these women’s desire to destroy Israel, the nation-state of the Jewish people.
