The Arabs Who Stand with Israel

When terror strikes, international leaders and world bodies are known to come alongside the city, nation or people torn apart by hate-driven violence. For the victims, they pledge sympathy and solidarity; for the perpetrators, scorn and fury. The Temple Mount terror attack on Friday morning, 14 July, was no different. As the people of Israel

Malicious Opportunity, Iran Using Syrian War to Expand Empire

Iran and Syria have long been allies in the fight against Israel and the West, with Iran generally the more powerful benefactor in the relationship.

Prelude to Savagery: Iran Promotes Blood Libel of the Jews

Throughout the 1930s, Hitler groomed his culture and his continent for unspeakable savagery. He did this by glorifying his country’s collective ego and asserting the racial superiority of ‘Aryans’ who were on the cusp of a millennium of global rule.

Yom Kippur War—42 Years Later

6 October 1973 dawned without a hint of the perils to come. It was the Day of Atonement—or Yom Kippur in Hebrew—the holiest day on the Jewish calendar.
