‘Bake The Cake’ And The Red Hen Controversy

We have often been somewhat critical of some of the war reparations class-action lawsuits filed against Germany and other European countries.

Encouraging Islamist Zealotry

It pains me to write this. But it is becoming increasingly clear to me that Israel, in so many ways on the front lines in the fight against Islamo-fascism, is actually a force promoting it.

The New Islamic Funders of UNRWA

The UNRWA is not merely funded by the UN and international organizations. It is funded by extremist Islamic sources

The Oslo Disaster – 25 Years Later

The 25th anniversary of the disastrous Oslo Accords falls between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur – a most fitting time to reflect on its legacy.

‘For A Jew To Remain In The Diaspora Is Like A Slap In God’s...

I strongly believe in legalizing drugs, soft and hard, but I am wary of drugs of any kind.

Jewperheroes!

For most of my life, I lived a Clark Kent existence: that of a Jew residing in Manchester, England, intent on blending into the modern, secular world.

The Fictive Reality Grows

Of course the very texts of the scrolls confirm a fundamental historical Jewish connection to the land.

Can Trump Get Israel and the Palestinian Arabs To Talk? A Last Look At...

Obama's predecessor, George Bush, was able to go beyond funding and weapons and get Israel and the Palestinian Arabs talking without anti-Israel UNSC resolutions or media attacks

The Best Revenge Is To Build

Even for a region accustomed to brutality, last week's Sabbath massacre in Itamar stands out for its sheer savagery and barbarism.

Kerry’s speech was a few tossed bones to Israel while again stabbing Israel in the back with a proposal that endangers the Jewish state.

When Nazism Was All The Rage On Campus

Campus radicalism, support for totalitarianism, and general political extremism are not new on Western campuses. Indeed some of the worst political extremism in academic history took the form of enthusiastic support on American campuses for Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy.

The word "terrorist" (or "terrorism," or "terror") does not appear in the story even once.

Why Liberal Jews Can’t Stand Sarah Palin

Why do liberal Jews have such a problem with Sarah Palin?

Abu Buchanan’s Fatwah On Israel

Once the Palestinians have their state they can begin importing heavy armaments and training commando units to act as an advance column for the rest of the Arab world when the next Middle East war comes - as come it will.
