Israel News From The Source

Jump to Comments

I closely follow the current events in Israel. A lot happened last week. I wasn’t sure what to make of these new developments. More concerning to me, I wasn’t sure where to turn to help make sense of it all.

So I tried something a bit different. I blocked out all the bloviaters, bloggers and pundits. Instead I watched full and unedited speeches by the politicians who are in power.

And what do ya know, as I watched these speeches in their proper context I was able to better understand the issues, get better clarity around the different arguments and form my own opinions and viewpoints.

I’m over the media. I’ll curate news for myself from now on.

This is President Obama’s initial policy speech that he made last Thursday (5/19).

 

The very next day Obama met with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu at the White House.

 

Over the weekend, the annual AIPAC Policy Conference was held in Washington, DC. AIPCAAC is America’s Pro-Israel Lobby group. Below is the speech by President Obama.

 

Also at the AIPAC conference, is thisspeech by Tzipi Livni, who is the leader of the opposition (Likud) party and a former Mossad agent.

Finally, I watched the speech by Benjamin Netenyahu to Congress on Monday.

 

Please share any primary news worth watching from those with power or influence.
