Israel Legalizes Illegal Settlements on Palestinian Land: On the Toll on the Rule of Law

Israel’s legislature passed a law on February 6, 2017 retroactively legalizing Jewish settlements on privately owned Palestinian land. Incredibly, the state’s own attorney general said he would not defend the new law in court because he had determined the law to unconstitutional and in violation of international law. Anat Ben Nun of an anti-settlement group said the law was “deteriorating Israel’s democracy, making stealing an official policy.”[1]Specifically, the Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, including those offered financial compensation for the “long term use of their land” but without being able to reclaim their property under the new law, “are not Israeli citizens and cannot vote for candidates for Israel’s Parliament, or Kenesset.”[2]I submit nevertheless that the underlying casualty in this case is the rule of law itself.
The full essay is at “Israel Legalizes Illegal Settlements.”

After UN resolution and Kerry speech, is Obama saving Israel’s worst for last?

Obama rejected long-established U.S. policy last week when he allowed the UN Security Council to gang up on Israel. Using a document created by John Kerry and Susan Rice, the council voted 14-0 in favor of a resolution that Obama…

Barack Obama: King of the Jews?

Barack Obama recently voiced his frustration in a conversation with his friend and former chief campaign adviser David Axelrod about being perceived as anti-Israel, according to JPUpdates.com and a report with The Daily Caller. “You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office,” Axelrod recalled. “For people to say that I am anti-Israel, or, even worse, anti-Semitic, it hurts.” Yeah, I’m sure it does hurt. The truth usually does. From his Cairo speech in 2009 when he told the world that Israel was only created based on Jewish suffering in the Holocaust, and then says that Palestinians have been similarly victimized by the Jews, to his attempt to overthrown Benjamin Netanyahu during the recent Israeli elections, Obama’s record is full of anti-Israel and anti-Semite policies. For a detailed timeline on Obama’s anti-Israel hatred, go to this Breitbart.com article. During the interview, Axelrod provided his opinion on Obama’s failed attempt to oust Bibi Netanyahu and why a REAL Jewish leader is bad news for Israel. Try to keep the blood from shooting our of your eyes from the irony: “The world of politics everywhere is divided into two categories: the first and […]

Will Obama order military attack on Israel?

Would anyone be surprised to see this headline in the spring or summer of 2016: “Obama orders U.S. military attack on Israel / blocks Israeli strike at Iran / Iran grateful“? Like it or not, there is an increasing likelihood we will see that kind of headline before Obama leaves office. Why should we worry about that? Does water flow downhill? President Obama’s treasonous sellout to the Iran nuclear program is only the latest chapter in his betrayals of America and our allies in the face of Iran’s Islamist ambitions. A U.S. military attack on Israel would have been unthinkable under any other president, but it is now quite conceivable. There are two reasons we need to take that possibility seriously. First, it is entirely consistent with Obama’s pattern of pro-Iran policies and actions. Secondly, there is no one standing in his way. For six years, Obama has done nothing to oppose or hinder Iran’s ambition to become the dominant power in the region. In fact, he has said that Iran can become a stabilizing influence in the world. At the same time, he has consistently opposed and belittled Israel’s security concerns. Iran has only repeated and reconfirmed its stated […]
