This week’s edition of the Action Update presents the good news and the bad news from Iran to Lebanon and, of course, our nation’s capital. It’s been an interesting week for US foreign policy and world affairs, so let’s dive right in.
Updates & Analysis
The Action Update: Iran Strikes Again, The Senate Strikes Back, Neo-Nazis Strike Out
In this week’s Action Update, we’ll cover topics from Iran to the BDS movement to neo-Nazis, but rest assured, despite it all, we remain unphased, uncompromising, and unabashed in our support for Israel.
The Action Update: An American Patriot, Lebanon on the Brink (Again), Iran Buying Time (Again)
This week, the United States lost an American patriot who devoted his life to the service of his nation. Further down, we discuss certain policy items we feel our readers should be aware of, but first, let us take a moment to honor the late General Colin Powell.
The Action Update: The Diplomats Meet
With Congress out of session, it’s a relatively quiet week in Washington. Nonetheless, there’s one meeting that Israel’s supporters should be aware of; so, we’ll unpack that today. In addition, some things are going on between Israel and Lebanon – and they’re not what you might expect.
The Action Update: Sen. Rand Paul is Endangering Israeli Lives (and he knows it)
We’re not going to make a habit of it, but this week we’ll once again only be covering two topics in The Update. Why? Because sometimes events are so impactful that they demand fixation over attention, and sometimes events are so head turning as to leave the observer with whiplash.
The Action Update: Congressional Israel Haters Abandon Any Pretense & President Biden at the United Nations
This week saw two events so highly significant to Israel’s security and the future of the US-Israel relationship that we’re deviating from our usual approach of addressing three topics and diving a bit more deeply into these two items. So, without further ado, let’s get into it.
The Action Update: An Inconceivable Response, An Inane Policy, An Irredeemable International Approach
This past week showed that sometimes events in the Middle East seem to go out of their way to prove the adage that there’s nothing new under the sun. We saw an uptick in Palestinian terrorism because Israel deigned to capture Palestinian terrorists who’d escaped from prison. We saw the Biden administration double down on a consistently failed policy in Lebanon, and we saw Iran, yet again, avoid any consequences for their malicious activities.
The Action Update: With Afghanistan, all eyes are on terror groups … and Tehran
The dramatic failure on display in Afghanistan has America’s allies and adversaries asking whether the United States can be trusted in the future and if our enemies will ever fear us again. The blame for this current tragedy extends beyond one administration, yet the final failure rests with the one that saw the implications, ignored the warnings and nonetheless chose to haphazardly proceed.
The Action Update: From Jerusalem to Washington and from Kabul to Tehran
All of the events taking place on the world’s stage that we plan to discuss this week impact each other, and in order to appreciate them one must take a holistic view of national security and foreign policy. As such, in this week’s Action Update we’ll go around the world, from Jerusalem to Washington and from Kabul to Tehran.
The Action Update: How Did We Get Here?
Tragedy has befallen Afghanistan. As Pastor John Hagee, the founder and Chairman of Christians United for Israel (CUFI) recently noted, “While there may be no easy answers to Afghanistan’s history of troubles, there could have been an organized and professional effort to ensure that every American and every person who aided our efforts there these past twenty years, was able to exit the country. To our utter shame, that is not the case.”
In this week’s Action Update we discuss the implications of the Taliban’s rapid takeover of Afghanistan just weeks shy of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
