Israel Israel Self Reliance Uncategorized


The sad thing is, it’s all self inflicted, from the moment they allowed Stinky Arafat into their backyard in Ramallah.

In my column, I cautioned that a “perfect storm” is brewing against Israel, from all directions and on every front – on every one of its borders with neighboring states, within those borders from an increasingly recalcitrant Arab population, and far beyond them, with the looming specter of an Obama-facilitated nuclear Iran.
