Menu There is no diplomatic solutionIsrael should declare three nos;
no to nuclear Iran, no to two-state solution, no to bi-national state

In the International Arena there is no Rule of Law, only the Rule of Power  

Israel’s title deeds to the land west of the Jordan R. are of no value unless she has the power to protect them

The US State Department and the UK Foreign Office ignored those rights in the thirties and forties and instead promoted the Arab cause and continued to do so after Israel’s Declaration of Independence.

By Ted Belman

I recently critiqued an interview of Prof Jeffrey Sachs by Judge Napolitano on US policy  with respect to Gaza.

The Judge started out by referring to ”the slaughter that was going on in Gaza”. How can he be so ignorant? It has been proven repeatedly that there is no slaughter or genocide in Gaza. In fact, Israel has the lowest kill ratio of any war previously by a factor of at least five.

Surprisingly he spoke respectfully about Ben Gvir and Smotrich. Read more…

A Stiff-Necked Nation  

By Gary Epstein | June 20, 2024

We must admit that we Jews are known for stubbornness. Our own God refers to us as a stiff-necked nation and is repeatedly thwarted by our obdurate refusal to simply do what we are told or what others would have us do. We have endured centuries of oppression and even death for adamantly refusing to accept other people’s gods. And if the prophets are to be believed, we have been repeatedly punished for our obstinacy.

Recognizing a character flaw is the first step to overcoming it. Perhaps we can do better.

Given our well-earned reputation for intransigence, confronted by the displeasure of mobs on campuses and town squares throughout the world, facing boycotts and moral disapprobation in august international bodies, criticized by such moral paragons as Greta Thunberg, Emmanuel Macron, Junior Trudeau, and Recep Tayyep Erdogan, not to mention an abundance of Imams, Ayatollahs, and progressive Congresswomen, why can’t we simply face reality and go along to get along?

In conversation with President Trump  

Peloni:  A very important interview with President Trump.  He broke ground on a good many things in this interview, such as no US troops in Ukraine, period, that the threat of Ukraine entering NATO was caused the war, that the economic war on Russia made it possible for Russia to prosecute the war, no mention of pushing ‘peace’ on Israel, that Iran flushed with cash is a real problem, no national ban on abortion, war with China was unlikely, that Covid escaped the Wuhan lab, foreign students who graduate from college will get a green card, and he will release the JFK file.  Also, he notably dodged the issue of prosecuting Fauci.

It’s decision time for Israel in the North as Hezbollah escalates  

Behind the lines: The choice, a much grimmer one now because of the long period of drift, is whether to destroy those forces or to allow them to continue their strategy of Israel’s slow strangulation

Escalation on Israel’s northern front reached a hitherto unseen intensity this week. Israel carried out a series of pinpoint strikes against Hezbollah and IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps) targets, both close to the Israel-Lebanon border and far beyond it.

These included, according to several reports, an airstrike in the Aleppo area on Monday in which several Iran-linked operatives were killed. Among the dead was an Iranian IRGC official, Sayeed Aviar.

The opposition-linked Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that 17 people associated with Iran and its militias were killed in this strike. According to SOHR, the targets were a copper smelting plant and a weapons depot maintained by the militias in the northern Aleppo countryside, between the towns of Hayyan and Tamoura.

What is the New World Order?  


It appears to me that Government politicians all over the world are just puppets and bit actors playing their parts – but who the heck is really behind the satanic cabal called the New World Order that they take direction from? That’s what I hope to answer in this newsletter.

Mike Benz calls it the blob. Others call it an international crime cartel or the Deep State. Archbishop Vigano says it’s a combination of the British Crown, CIA, WEF, UN, Vatican and IMF.

It’s obviously NOT based on religion – nor is it based on country or party or gender or race. We know that there is SOME connection – because their propaganda and schemes (like COVID) work in tandem all over the world. But what is the connection? Where did the NWO come from, why do they hate God and family – why are they so obsessed with evil?

Wokism and the Military: Pete Hegseth’s The War on Warriors  

By Elise Cooper, AM THINKER June 21/24

The War on Warriors. Behind the Betrayal of the Men Who Keep Us Free by Pete Hegseth discusses the betrayal of those serving. He uses his own experiences, plus others who served, to show what is happening today. Hegseth is a co-host of Fox & Friends Weekend, an Army veteran of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and was also a guard at Guantanamo Bay. He holds two Bronze Stars and a Combat Infantryman’s Badge for his time in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The book talks about how the military brass are no different than the rest of our country emphasizing cultural chaos and weakness, how a woke socialist influence has removed essential core values. The book delves deeply into the political and cultural forces that have undermined the morale and effectiveness of U.S. armed forces, revealing the shocking truth behind the betrayal of the men and women who risk their lives to protect American freedoms.

New Israeli paradigm needed to prevent a nuclear Iran  

Analysis: The biggest threat to Israel’s existence remains Iran’s nuclear program and Israel must prevent the Islamic Republic from reaching its goal of achieving an atomic weapon of mass destruction

By Jacob Nagel,  Senior Fellow, FDD JUNE 19/24

Israel continues the war in Gaza and Lebanon to dismantle and eliminate Hamas’ military, governmental, and organizational capabilities, kill its leaders, bring back the hostages, and confront Hezbollah to allow the evacuated citizens to return home. At the same time, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei continues his ultimate strategy to achieve an atomic weapon of mass destruction.

Unfortunately, many in Israel, the West, and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are falling again and again into the clerical regime’s sophisticated trap. The Israeli leadership, hopefully together with the U.S. (but it will probably happen only after elections in November) should make a substantial switch in their working priorities to prevent Iran from reaching its goal.

Israeli forces in Rafah report discovering numerous tunnels and significant terrorist infrastructure  

By Seth J. Frantzman, FDD

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) extended operations in the southern Gaza city of Rafah during the third week of June. The IDF has been in Rafah since the evening of May 6, and it appears the campaign will now extend through July. The IDF’s presence continues because of the large number of tunnel shafts and significant terrorist infrastructure Israeli forces have discovered and must dismantle. Israel’s military estimates that it controls between “60 to 70 percent of Rafah” city and its environs.

The IDF’s battle for Rafah is led by the 162nd Division. The division has several key units that have been conducting the work of finding tunnels and removing munitions and other terrorist infrastructure. These include the Givati Infantry Brigade, the Nahal Infantry Brigade, the 401st Armored Brigade, and the “Negev” 12th Reserve Infantry Brigade.

Can Israel ‘Win by Winning’?  

A review of Daniel Pipes’ ‘Israel Victory’

Daniel Greenfield | June 21, 2024

A week before the Oct 7 Hamas assault on Israel, Daniel Pipes, a longtime respected foreign policy expert, a former board member of the United States Institute of Peace and the president of the Middle East Forum, had turned in his manuscript for his new book.

What emerged in the final months of 2023 was “Israel Victory: How Zionists Win Acceptance and Palestinians Get Liberated.” The foundational thesis of Pipes’ work, that Israel had spent far too much conciliating the Islamic terrorist groups that dominate Gaza and the West Bank, offering them the promise of peace and prosperity, emerged from the rubble more relevant than ever.

Europe: Nazis’ ‘Do Not Buy from Jews’ 2.0  

by Robert Williams, GATESTONE  •  June 20, 2024 at 5:00 am

  • Since October 7, when Iranian proxies Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad committed unspeakable atrocities against men, women, children and babies in Israel, large parts of the international community have been in a frenzy over the Jews’ puzzling inclination to defend themselves.
  • This is the same French government [which banned Israel from participating in Eurosatory 2024 defense industry trade fair] so obsessed with appearing inclusive and non-discriminatory that it recently supported a bill that outlaws discrimination based on hair texture, length, color or style.

Sen. Runestad: This is an outrage!  

Peloni:  Sen. Runestadt addresses the issue related to barring public transparency and investigation of election fraud.  Similar actions are being reported in other states, not the least noteworthy of which was the restriction on election fraud investigation which was passed in Florida last year and signed into law by Gov. Desantis.  These illiberal acts reinforcing the Selection process over the Election process must be halted/repealed.

Elon Musk & Ben Shapiro in PASSIONATE Interview  

Peloni: There is a great deal to discuss about this important interview, and overwhelmingly I would credit Musk and praise him for taking such an active stand in the recent war against the Jewish people which began on October 7.  One remark which struck me in this conversation, however, was Musk’s response to Shapiro’s question “What are your hopes of ‘Never Again’ is a real thing”, to which Musk alludes to the ‘millions and millions of people who fought to and died to destroy Nazism’.  It is a great misunderstanding of history to believe that millions and millions of people fighting and dying to destroy Nazism had anything to do with making the promise of ‘Never Again’ a reality.  In fact, there are many answers which might be voiced to fairly answer that question, but all of them must acknowledge that the promise of ‘Never Again’ was answered by the establishment of the State of Israel.  It is because the Jewish people have a standing army, because they have established borders, because the Jewish State stands as a refuge and protectorate for Jews who control their own destiny, choose their own leaders and are able to act in their own defense without the humbling need of requesting permission to do so from some Gentile power or leader.  In short, if Never Again is to be realized as a real thing, it is because Israel exists.  So while I would thank him for his outreach, which has been consistant and powerful in supporting the truth about this war, I would like to place a Community Note on his perspective of why ‘Never Again’ is a real thing.

Deep State Pushing Trump VP Choices as Secret Service Ramps Up Security Detail  

Peloni: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”  It is an often quoted statement because it is clever, because it is poignant, and because it is true.  In fact, I do not know who Trump will pick for the role of VP, and in some contexts the choice is less important than some people think and more important than is believed by others.  Yet, in any event, it would be a mistake to pick a devout Never-Trumper-Turned-MAGA-Devotee and not expect that they will not turn out to be a Dr. Jekyll and Mr Pence in disguise.  Does anyone think Trump does not recognize this fact?  Even if he does in fact pick another Never-Trumper-Turned-MAGA-Devotee?

A couple of quick hot points from the 2024 presidential race and Trump side of the equation.

? First, we can ignore all of the typical pre-debate banter about who is doing what in the lead-up to the Trump v Biden debate.  Every cycle the debate narratives are pushed for clicks and attention; almost all of it is manufactured nonsense and false.

Shooting attack reveals uncomfortable truths about Israel  

Peloni:  The terror state envisioned by the US State Dept is the fulfillment of a dream long dreamt by these psychopaths in which Israel is finally left to the destruction for which it was intended back in 1948 when a blockade was forced on the fledgling Israeli state, while the Arab Legion was being trained, armed, financed and officered by the British Empire.  Indeed, Israel was the experiment which was intended to fail, and when the Jews outmaneuvered all the obstacles intended to see us meet our destruction, the world began finding new imaginative tools by which to see our state crushed by our enemies.  In fact, the vision to see our people slaughtered and our state fail may have eluded the detection of many in Israel for a very long time, but October 7 has woken too many for the State Dept psychopaths to have there way with us. We will win this battle as well as the next, but only so long as our people maintain a strength thru such unity as was found following October 7 will our vigilance and perseverance continue to lead us to victory.

Nobody in the State Department, or the United Nations, or at J Street headquarters, is talking about the recent terrorist shooting attack on the Israeli town of Bat Hefer, less than 12 miles from the coastal town of Netanya. Because it shattered the premise at the heart of all their proposals concerning the Arab-Israeli conflict.

The Foundations of Internet Freedom  

Peloni:  “A Republic, if you can keep it” is a phrase of some import.  Indeed, it is claimed to have been made by Benjamin Franklin, but whoever coined this phrase was wise enough to recognize that tyranny is ever just a generation away from an apathetic democratic society.   This standard holds true for the digital realm as well, and in fact, the loss of freedom across the internet in recent years is actually being harnessed to institute the mental shackles in the real world in which we live.  It will be a true test of the modern democracies to see if we might take back the freedoms thus far constrained from our grasp, and yet to pass onto our children those freedoms which were passed onto us from our forefathers, this is exactly what we must not fail in doing.

Jeffrey A. Tucker | June 21, 2024

Twelve years ago, I wrote a book called “A Beautiful Anarchy,” which was a celebration of how the internet had evolved until that point in time. It largely operated in a decentralized manner, with businesses thriving within a spontaneous order.
