  • Commentary posted July 17, 2014 by James Phillips Gaza Crisis Illuminates a Grave New World

    The eruption of the third Gaza war since 2008 is yet another manifestation of the growing threat posed by Islamist militants within an increasingly unstable Middle East.  In recent years, Al-Qaeda and other Islamist revolutionary groups have made major gains in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Tunisia, Bahrain and Yemen.  They have exploited the chaos of the…

  • Commentary posted August 6, 2014 by Theodore R. Bromund, Ph.D. An Assault on Sovereignty in Israel, Ukraine

    At a conference in Israel earlier this month, the White House's Middle East coordinator, Philip Gordon, spoke the magic word: sovereignty. Unfortunately, for the White House, it's just a word. From Israel to Ukraine, today's crises show what happens when the world forgets what sovereignty requires. Speaking in Tel Aviv, Gordon urged Israel to "end the occupations and…

  • Commentary posted January 20, 2009 by James Phillips End Hamas Hostage Strategy to Bring Gaza Peace

    The Palestinian terrorist group Hamas has turned Gaza into a hellish battlefield as part of its long-term strategy to destroy Israel. The militant Islamist group has essentially taken Gaza's 1.5 million inhabitants hostage by putting a higher priority on killing Israelis than on protecting Palestinians. Hamas thugs continue to hide among Palestinian civilians while…

  • WebMemo posted October 12, 2011 by James Jay Carafano, Ph.D. Forty-Second Plot Highlights State-Sponsored Terrorism Threat

    On October 11 in New York, the Justice Department charged Manssor Arbabsiar, an Iranian-born naturalized U.S. citizen, and Gholam Shakuri with an array of charges related to a plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the U.S., Adel al-Jubeir, by bombing a public venue in Washington, D.C.

  • WebMemo posted September 26, 2011 by Baker Spring, Michaela Dodge Israel and the Iron Dome System: A Lesson for the United States

    Since Israel deployed its new Iron Dome artillery and rocket interceptor system in April, it successfully used it to shoot down Hamas Grad rockets. The Israeli experience with Iron Dome shows that the criterion of cost effectiveness for missile defenses has been defined too narrowly in the United States. More to the Story The missile defense cost-effectiveness debate…

  • WebMemo posted September 17, 2010 by Ariel Cohen, Ph.D. Turkey’s Referendum: A Looming Challenge to U.S. Interests?

    On September 12, 2010, Turkey took an important political step away from its secular nature—and, indirectly, away from its alliance with the United States and NATO. Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan forced a nationwide referendum to accept or reject 26 constitutional amendments for an up-or-down vote. The referendum passed 58 percent to 42 percent, a victory that Erdogan…

  • WebMemo posted May 11, 2011 by James Phillips The Palestinian Facebook Intifada and Campaign for Unilateral Statehood

    Palestinians are getting ready to divert the international spotlight away from the “Arab Spring” and focus it on their efforts to gain international recognition for a Palestinian state. Palestinian activists have called for a popular uprising against Israel on May 15. The two strongest Palestinian factions, Hamas and Fatah, signed a unity agreement to bolster the campaign…

  • WebMemo posted June 4, 2010 by Nile Gardiner, Ph.D., James Phillips The Gaza Flotilla Incident: U.N. Inquiry Will Be an Anti-Israel Farce

    In the aftermath of the recent gun battle aboard a Turkish aid ship heading for Gaza, international leaders have been queuing up to attack Israel. From Ankara to Brussels, the condemnation of the only longstanding democracy in the Middle East has been swift and unequivocal. The United Nations, the European Union, and the Arab League have all engaged in a frenzy of…

  • WebMemo posted June 16, 2010 by Sally McNamara, James Phillips Hamas Is a Threat to Peace, Despite Propaganda Claims

    Criticism of Israel’s May 31 interception of an “aid” flotilla has prompted a misguided call from the European Union for “an urgent and fundamental change of policy” to allow for the unconditional opening of Gaza border crossings.[1] This criticism directly contradicts the EU’s designation of Hamas as a proscribed terrorist organization and represents a de facto…
