Turmoil in the Mideast: Wake-up Call for Israel

By Michael Gottlieb, January 31, 2011

Recent events in Tunisia, Yemen, Jordan and Egypt clearly illustrate just how volatile, unpredictable and unforgiving the Middle East can be. Lebanon, for example, Israel's northern neighbor, has virtually fallen into Iran's orbit with very ominous implications. Jordan, to the east, is also dangerously veering towards Iran's magnetic pull. The fate of Egypt, Israel's southern and most powerful neighbor, has suddenly become uncertain as well. Israel is surrounded by Arab states in flux. In the Middle East, there are no guarantees, no certainty and no mercy.

הזכות המשפטית על אדמת השומרון

By Michael Gottlieb, August 30, 2010

בדיקה עניינית ומעמיקה של החוק הבין-לאומי חושפת את האמת הבלתי מעורערת (והמאוד לא נעימה לחלק מהשומעים), לפיה לישראל ולעם היהודי יש זכות ריבונית מלאה על שטחי יהודה ושומרון.
