Israel, much like the fortress of Tel-Chai that Jospeh Trumpeldor fought to defend against Arab conquerors in 1920, finds itself beseiged by enemies both within and without. Terrorists, would-be friends inside and outside Israel, and even bad government officials. Here are the discussions of one proud Zionist resident on the state of the nation and abroad.
Barry Rubin writes about how, if 2011 was the year of the alleged Arab "spring", then this coming year looks to be the year of the Arab Fall, as totalitarian jihadist movements start to reign, and Salafist gangs roam the mideast, making it all a most horrible place on the earth.
I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent.
