Op-ed: The prime minister’s attacks on the police chief are part of a planned move. The timing is planned too: A moment before witnesses start marching back into the fraud investigation unit’s offices and before investigators return to the PM’s residence, it’s time to convince the public that not only are the investigators suspected of leaks, but that the investigation itself is illegitimate.
Op-ed: The prime minister is giving in to the radicals in his government and focusing on public relations instead of statesmanship. Anywhere else, this could end peacefully, but in Israel it could result in an unnecessary war. The inexperience in matters of security, the lack of diplomatic discretion and the absence of a political balance, alongside arrogance and a disregard of our enemies, are a recipe for disaster.
Op-ed: Less than four years after its official establishment, ISIS seems to be approaching its end. How did it happen? Once terror crosses a certain line, it sets in motion a self-destruction mechanism and undermines its own goal. The organization’s intimidation efforts were so successful, that the entire world teamed up to destroy it.
Op-ed: Centrist politicians have been trying to lure right-wing voters for years, but Avi Gabbay’s recent comments crossed a certain line. Somehow, the Labor leader’s shift to the right seems kind of sincere and a bit too resolved.
