My PJ Media series on Israeli women continues with this tribute to Golda Meir, Israel's fourth prime minister and the world's third female head of government. Being a socialist and left-of-center on the political spectrum did not stop her from being a fervently loyal nationalist and a person of backbone and integrity. Surveying her admirable career highlights what a sad remnant Israel's current Labor Party ("the Arabs always peace but Bibi wrecks everything") unfortunately is.
As I discuss on Frontpage, Kerry's throwing himself (with Obama's backing) into yet another "peace process" has been a case of remarkably delusive, reality-discordant behavior; how desperate he must be to try playing the card of releasing Jonathan Pollard, something that should have been done long ago in any case. Meanwhile Mahmoud Abbas keeps playing cynical games and is immune to being blamed for anything, emphatically unlike Netanyahu.
He died this month, one of the greatest fighters in Israeli history, and indeed called one of the greatest in all of Jewish history. His legacy is flawed but his contribution to Israel's rise and survival is undeniable. I discuss on PJ Media.
The current Kerry-orchestrated, Obama-approved "peace process" has always been a shakedown attempt, as I discuss on Frontpage. Abbas will do almost anything to get Israel to free twenty-six more terrorists--short of saying the words "Jewish state."
