The American Jewish Love Affair With Baseball: An Interview with Director Peter Miller

In September I wrote in my Baseball Insider column (which appears the second week of each month in The Jewish Press) of my very positive reaction to an advanced screening of the new documentary "Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story."

Where’s the March Against Anti-Semitism?

The reality is that the group that suffers the most hate crimes is not blacks, Muslims, women or gays, it is Jews. Year-in and year-out. And no one speaks up for them at these marches.

It’s Time We All Learned to Speak (and Act) Arabic

Linguistics for the next round of fighting.

Chabad in South Africa: Mandela Brought the Country Together

“It was quite an institutionalized racism, and we didn't come to get involved in politics.”

The UN Vote: It’s Not Obama’s Fault!

While I am no fan of Obama, I must state–loud and clear–that he did not betray Israel. Everything that happened in the UN on December 23 was due to one person and one person only: Benjamin Netanyahu.

A number of "unusual" occurrences took place in the wake of this tragedy that demonstrated both the hashgacha pratis of Hashem's direction of events and the exalted qualities that Moshe Shubert surely possessed.

End Game

Most people probably agree, these days, that the military invasion of Iraq was a mistake. Whatever you thought at the time (and I was among those who believed it was worth the effort in light of Saddam’s actions and the realization of our vulnerability after 9/11), the evidence since has been pretty clear.

The Schwarzschild Award

The winner of the Monitor’s third annual Henry Schwarzschild Award for most offensive comments by a Jew in the public spotlight goes to Michael Lerner, publisher of the far-left Tikkun magazine.

Another Capitulation

We have now lived in Israel for more years than we lived in the USA, and our joy in living in Israel knows no bounds. We are living in our homeland with our people. We loved America and are proud to be American citizens, but Israel is our home. We strive each day to keep our focus on the wonderful things that life in Israel offers. We are happy that Israel and the USA are allies and help each other. Unfortunately, we are often upset and concerned by the political situation and by the attitude of the world to the Jews.

The Useful Myth that Obama Now Likes Israel

The idea that Obama is now backing Israel is what American Jewish voters who supported him desperately need to believe.

The Sandy Hook Tragedy

The 26 murders at the Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut last Friday have triggered yet another nationwide debate over how something so horrific could happen in the United States.

Now I Know How I’d Answer The New York Times

I have been wondering, what is it about my music that can get some religious leaders so excited?

The Teflon Reverend

Nor did it seem relevant that according to widely circulated media reports, Rev. Sharpton was caught on an FBI surveillance video discussing possible drug sales with an FBI agent.

The Al-Dura Myth And Media Silence

On September 30, 2000, the world was electrified by a photo and video of a 12-year-old Palestinian boy, Mohammed al-Dura, apparently dying in his father’s arms after being shot by Israeli soldiers. The image would appear over and over again in newspapers and on television, videos, shirts, posters, mugs, and banners held aloft by Muslim students on Western campuses and Muslim mobs throughout the Arab world.

Where Will The Arabs Go?

Next time someone asks, “But where will the Palestinians go??” give them this article and tell them about a straight swap on population transfer.

With All Your Soul

The recent appalling murders in Itamar shocked everyone - not just settlers but every Jew without exception, because it wasn't the Fogel family alone whom the enemy wished to murder, but rather each and every one of us.

Madmen and Crowds

Crowd culture expects everyone to follow the leader, to join the meme, to move with the flow, but that is something that crazy people cannot do.

Jewish Press Radio: New Movie About Israel, and Help Me Understand Migron!

This week’s show kicks off with Yishai and Malkah talking about a recently released movie titled “Israel Inside”, which shows how Israel is leading the way in not only technology but also social innovation and creating a new atmosphere in the Middle East. Then, Yishai talks with Jeremy Sultan to understand the nitty gritty of the Migron saga.

A Nation Of Self-Flagellators

Avi Shlaim, one of the Israeli “New Historians” who in the 1980s and ‘90s helped popularize the precepts of what came to be called “post-Zionism,” is out with a new book, a collection of essays titled Israel and Palestine: Reappraisals, Revisions, Refutations.

Muslims Versus The NYPD

We are encouraged by signs that shortsighted attempts by some Muslim groups to blunt the obviously successful proactive NYPD anti-terrorism programs – programs that involve heightened scrutiny of some Muslim-Americans – are not getting any traction.

Tzav Shmonah

When our son phoned to say he was coming over with his wife and children, my husband said, "Fine, we're home tonight, and for a change there's real food. Ima prepared supper for other family members that are on their way over."

The Paranoid View Of History Infects Oberlin

It has never been the function of academic free speech to protect or promote irresponsible, inaccurate, or deranged speech-yet anti-Semitic speech of this kind apparently is

An Israeli looks Around the world, and is Happiest at Home

As Israel watches the unraveling of Europe, hears the fears of local Jews, witnesses the insanity of American Democrats demanding open borders, sanctuary cities that protect criminal illegal migrants and endanger their lawful citizens, it seems that the outside world has gone mad.
