As we begin this new year, I’d like start by thanking each of you who read this blog and share it with others. Based on the emails and Tweets I receive, I know many of you come for geopolitical news, analysis and commentary regarding Israel, the Middle East, other international issues. Others come to the blog for analysis of faith and spiritual issues and trends. Many also check in for updates on my novels and non-fiction books and media appearances, and some for all of the above.
Whatever your reasons, thank you for reading.
