From American Thinker.Com August 14, 2011 By William A. Levinson Dr. Stephen Covey compares leadership to management as follows: if workers are chopping their way through a jungle, managers figure out how to help them to chop faster.  A leader climbs a tree, looks around, and realizes, "We're in the wrong jungle!"  Every discussion of how much land Israel must give up to have peace exemplifies this principle because the Islamic Continue Reading

The Altalena Remembered

Auerbach Ever since 1836 Texans were taught to "Remember the Alamo," the San Antonio siege where two hundred fighters for freedom and independence from Mexico (the legendary Davy Crockett among them) defended their mission fortress to the last man.

It’s Tel Aviv and not Tehran

From KHouse.Org Protesters in Libya or Syria or Iran know they are risking a great deal when they take to the streets to demonstrate their griefs.

Reader beware

From American Thinker.Com July 26, 2011 Leo Rennert Haaretz is a small-circulation Israeli daily  with huge influence about the Jewish state's image across the world.  Within Israel, it's the most leftist of all mass media, denouncing any and all politicians who are not ready to cede as much land as possible to the Palestinians.  Not only does Haaretz instill its anti-Zionist propaganda in editorials and commentaries, but also in Continue Reading
