By Lloyd Levy LONDON, England –I actually never thought I would have to write an article like this, from the green and pleasant land of England. However it is becoming quite frightening to be a Jew in UK.  What is so remarkable is how quickly it all appears to have happened.  One can now start […]

Prolonging war enhances Hamas prestige vs. P.A.

By Lloyd Levy LONDON, England — The “war” in Gaza has now lasted over two weeks, with no immediate sign of an end to hostilities. This is really bad news for Israel in particular, and Diaspora Jews in general. I have certain perspectives on the matter. I believe the US administration bears a great deal […]

Mideast solution may come from within

By Lloyd Levy LONDON–The dire state of the Kerry Peace effort was just so predictable. How did he have the arrogance and vanity to think that he can solve a problem that has eluded the whole world for over 100 years? The “process” became the objective, and not the real needs of both sides. One […]

BDS and bombs can spoil a week

 By Lloyd Levy LONDON–This last week or so must rank as one of the most depressing  weeks as far as Israel is concerned.

P.A. accepting Israel as a ‘Jewish state’ is key test

By Lloyd Levy LONDON–John Kerry seems to be involved in some sort of manic quixotic obsession with the Israel/Palestinian issue, to the detriment of the rest of the world’s problems.

Commentary: Obama alienating U.S. allies

By Lloyd Levy LONDON–The foreign policy of the Obama Administration  must surely be the most disreputable since the alliance of Stalin and Hitler.

Neutrality is Israel’s wisest policy in Syria

By Lloyd Levy EILAT, Israel — It never ceases to amaze me how Israel almost manages to be a proverbial island of tranquility in a sea of complete turmoil. The preoccupation in Israel at the moment is the perceived extravagance of Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu and his wife. Apparently they had a special bed built on […]

Thatcher walked the walk

By Lloyd Levy LONDON–We cannot let the death of Margaret Thatcher pass , without a few thoughts on this truly great woman. Most people of my generation regard her as the most inspiring leader since Winston Churchill, and view her death with enormous sadness. In many ways she defined our whole world view. There was […]
