In Memoriam – Howard Grief (1940-2013) William Mehlman

            Howard Grief did not suffer fools gladly, most notably those, including jurists, who in the face of documented  historical evidence of Israel’s sovereignty over Judea, Samaria  and the Golan, as agent and assignee of the Jewish People, persist in  referring  to those areas as “disputed,” “unallocated” and, most offensively, “occupied” territories.  Irrespective of the […]

From the Editor: Rael Jean Isaac

From Bias to Blackout                 Having long grown accustomed to media bias, we have moved to the next stage–media blackout.  Rather than distort the news, the media now, whenever possible, simply ignores events that disturb its political beliefs and agenda.  Writing on Arutz Sheva’s website, Israel National News, Gil Ronen offers a striking example in […]

Kerry and the Peace Idiots Ride Again: Daniel Greenfield

            Few figures in American political life have been as consistently wrong as often as John Kerry. The former Senator bet on every Communist leader and Middle Eastern tyrant he could find only to watch the wheels of history roll over his mistakes. And now as Secretary of State, Kerry is at it again. […]

Beware of Washington: David Isaac

    It seems John Kerry’s imitation of Henry Kissinger has borne fruit. His sixth trip to jump start ‘peace talks’ in as many months has triggered the desired response, with Arabs and Israelis agreeing to restart negotiations.                 Unfortunately, getting Israel to the negotiating table is just a first step in squeezing Israel back to […]

Changing Times: Rita Kramer

 History abounds in ironies.  Glimpses into the past, into what was thought and said by those who were present as events were unfolding, sometimes explain, sometimes exasperate, and sometimes mystify.  For those of us dismayed by how the government and people of Israel are depicted in much of the world today, there are illuminating and […]

The Elusive Goal : Noa Bursie

(Editor’s note: Noa Bursie is an African-American convert to Judaism.)  Peace. The word itself is a two-edged sword, conveying a powerful spirit of tranquility while simultaneously evoking a strange, inescapable anxiety.  It is the quintessential dichotomy of humanity to so passionately crave the very thing we so effectively repel by bowing to the baser elements […]

France’s Blood Libel Against Israel :Guy Millière

 Editor’s note:  Milliere was right in his prediction.  On June 26 the Paris Court of Appeals convicted Philippe Karsenty of defamation of the French national television channel France 2 and fined him 7,000 euros.  The case is strongly reminiscent of the second trial in the Dreyfus case when all the facts were in (including the […]

An Interview With Lela Gilbert Ruth King

In the June 2013 issue of Outpost I wrote about Lela Gilbert’s inspiring book Saturday People, Sunday People: Israel through the Eyes of  a Christian Sojourner, in which she describes her life in a country she came to visit but now makes her home.                 Since its founding, AFSI has been front and foremost in […]
