I am an independent op-ed contributor to various Zionist and Conservative media outlets. I contributed to an in-depth series at FrontPage Magazine (from 2003-2007) with Lee Kaplan – still working together – a well known investigative journalist. He is a world class expert on the ISM (International Solidarity Movement), and he utilized my foundation in forensics to “follow the money”. Unfathomably, the ISM was able to accomplish the above money laundering, courtesy of their IRS 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. Specifically, my name appears at the end of the expose’, “Does The Pro-Terror Left Violate U.S. Tax Laws?” - http://archive.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=7148
My op-eds have been featured at American Thinker (http://www.americanthinker.com/adina_kutnicki/), Israel National News (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Author.aspx/451), Israel Insider, The Jewish Press (http://www.jewishpress.com/author/adinakutnicki/), MidEast Outpost, The Freeman Center For Strategic Studies (http://www.freeman.org/serendipity/index.php?serendipity%5Baction%5D=search&serendipity%5Bfullentry%5D=1&serendipity%5BsearchTerm%5D=adminstration+detention+orders+against+jewish+nationalists&serendipity%5BsearchButton%5D=%3E), JEWSNEWS.co.il (http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/11/10/why-is-drunk-driving-treated-more-leniently-than-assault-with-a-deadly-weapon-op-ed-by-adina-kutnicki-featured-at-jewsnews-co-il/) as well as other sites. My writings also appear in print media.
I assist several Zionist academics with their efforts, chiefly through their policy centers. I am particularly in sync with the policy prescriptions elucidated by Dr. Martin Sherman - www.strategic-israel.org/ and Professor Paul Eidelberg - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Eidelberg. Therefore, I lend them my insights.
My “go to” expert on all matters pertaining to international law, and a country’s right to anticipatory self defense – via preemptive strikes – is none other than Professor Louis Rene Beres of ‘Project Daniel’- http://www.acpr.org.il/ENGLISH-NATIV/03-issue/daniel-3.htm(the Chair of a strategic nuclear policy paper given to, and reviewed by, PM Ariel Sharon in 2003, in relation to Israel’s nuclear strategy in the face of Iran’s pursuit of WMD’s) - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Ren%C3%A9_ – a man of great integrity and humility.
Louis, a heartfelt thank you for being my mentor.
Tzedek, tzedek, tirdof…Justice, justice, you shall pursue.

Mi ha’ashir ha’s'meach b’chelko…The one who is rich is the one who is
satisfied with his portion, his lot in life.

Lao Tzu coined the Chinese axiom -Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
My beloved husband Frank, z”l (of blessed memory), wise as he was, didn’t know Chinese, but he knew how to raise sons. He understood that instilling self respect and ethical standards, coupled with outstanding education, would allow them to “fish” for life, not only financially, but also morally. The above are life’s most valuable lessons-and gifts-a father can give to his son(s) - adinakutnicki.com/2013/02/20/in-loving-memory-of-frank-kutnicki-zl-on-the-fifth-anniversary-of-a-husband-fathers-sudden-death-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/
Born and raised in New York City, I made aliyah to Israel in the summer of 2008. Being fluent in Hebrew allows me to gauge the mood (aka matzav) of the country, thus, enabling me to report on core Zionist issues (though in English) with much more accuracy.
Most intrinsically (and personally gratifying), I am the mother of two outstanding sons. Both are electrical engineers (MIT & Caltech educated) and proudly serve as IDF reservists.
This blog is dedicated in memory of their father; my beloved husband; a man who believed in justice; loved Israel; was a proud American; and was especially grateful for the freedoms it gave his parents, after they survived the horrors of Auschwitz.
Hopefully, my small effort will enlighten Israelis and Americans (and the west in general) to the dangers posed by our common foes. These dangers are fueled exponentially by the morphing of the Red/Green alliance-radical leftists and Islamic jihadists.
