Ties That Bind: A 23rd Arab State And The Palestinian-Al-Qaeda Terror Alliance

26 Heshvan 5768 – November 7, 2007
Some things never change. First and foremost, it seems, is the determination of American presidents to assist in the birth another enemy state called "Palestine." Notwithstanding this country's "War On Terror," the Bush administration continues on a conspicuously self-destructive path that will only make us more vulnerable to terrorism.

Torah MiTzion Kollel In Warsaw

Every time I come to Poland there is some new sign of the resurgence of the religious Jewish community.

America Needs A Strategic Nuclear Doctrine – Now

19 Heshvan 5768 – October 31, 2007
My readers in The Jewish Press will already know that I write a great deal about Israeli nuclear issues. One of these inherently existential issues is the need for a coherent and codified Israeli nuclear doctrine. Moreover, this need was an integral part of Project Daniel - a private effort that reported to former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon ("Israel's Strategic Future," January 2003) and was most immediately concerned with Iranian nuclear weapons and the associated prospect of nuclear war in the Middle East.

Visiting The Graves Of Tzaddikim

For the past few weeks I have been describing my trip through Poland to different graves of Polish tzaddikim of the past.

Biography, Apocalypse And International Relations

12 Heshvan 5768 – October 24, 2007
Over the years, I have closely followed the work of Yossi Melman, an outstanding investigative journalist with Ha'aretz and a leading authority on Israel's intelligence communities. Not surprisingly, his earlier book, Every Spy a Prince (co-authored with Dan Raviv) was an international bestseller.

Lancut

On my many trips to Poland, I always heard of the amazing synagogue structure in Lancut.

Returning The Pink Cheek Or ‘Orange’ Look To Eretz Yisrael Supporters

5 Heshvan 5768 – October 17, 2007
At precisely 1 p.m. on Sunday, September 30 (Chol HaMoed), something happened. Something new.

Rymanow

In a recent column on the cemetery of Krakow one of the pictures was mislabeled as the grave of Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Riminov (Rymanow).

Opposing Olmert On Golan Surrender: Civil Disobedience As A Legal Imperative (Second of Two...

28 Tishri 5768 – October 10, 2007
Can the Olmert government protect Israel's citizens? After last summer's Lebanon war, this is hardly a serious question. Further, following Iran's continuing defiance of the international community in its illegal nuclearization, a defiance carried out with literal impunity, the consequences of Israel's national impotence could soon be genuinely existential. Let us be candid. This is the case even before Mr. Olmert proceeds with his plan to give up the Golan.

B’nai B’rith International Revives Lodge In Poland

In 1938, by decree of the president of the Republic of Poland, all 10 B'nai B'rith Lodges were closed down.

20 Tishri 5768 – October 2, 2007
Amid the growing chaos of internal Palestinian violence, the manifest error of every Middle East Peace Process should be altogether obvious. Quite predictably, Fatah and Hamas now validate years of informed Jewish opposition to both the original Oslo Agreements and to the equally twisted cartography of a so-called "Road Map."

The Krakow Bet HaChaim

During my recent trip to Poland I visited many cemeteries where great tzaddikim are buried.

13 Tishri 5768 – September 25, 2007
In Claude Lanzmann's monumental documentary, SHOAH, one of the surviving leaders of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising remarks: "If you could lick my heart, it would poison you." Sadly, the time may still come - if Prime Minister Olmert is permitted to continue following Washington's cartography - that surviving Israelis will someday express similar sentiments.

7 Tishri 5768 – September 19, 2007
Can the current government of Israel protect its citizens? Clearly, Israelis have already experienced the Oslo and Road Map "peace process," as a Terror Process. If Judea/Samaria are soon transformed into "Palestine," the peace process will once again become a war and terror process.

Too Close To Home

Let me begin by wishing all of my readers a very happy and healthy new year. This past year was filled with many wonderful joys and several sorrows, but we thank Hashem for another year of life.

Po-Lin

Before Rosh Hashanah - Yom Kippur, it is customary to pray at the graves of one's parents.

29 Elul 5767 – September 11, 2007
Here we go again. The more things change, the more they remain the same. Now it is Hebron, where a number of soldiers have correctly refused intrinsically wrongful orders to evict fellow Jews from their homes. Now it is Homesh, where authentic Jews labor industriously and heroically to remedy earlier IDF evictions.

A Year In Poland

For many, Polish Jewry is a misnomer; they (even those that come to visit) think that there is no longer any Jewish life, that it was all killed in the Holocaust. In the past year, I have been privileged to see just how much life there is in Poland.

Language, Ecstasy And Immortality: The Always Deeper Meanings Of Suicide-Bombing Terrorism

22 Elul 5767 – September 5, 2007
Terrorism is not always what it seems. When it involves suicide bombing in Iraq or Israel, it often has little if anything to do with war or politics. Rather, its truest meanings are rooted in distinctly private expressions of fear, dissatisfaction, cowardice and loathing.

Day Of Remembrance In Lodz

A Day of Remembrance for the Jews of the Lodz Ghetto was recently held in the city.
