Join Meir Panim’s campaign to “light up” Chanukah for families in need.
To those who harbor, in the back of their minds, the uneasy notion that America's friendship with Israel really was the reason for the September 11 events, an article by Holger Jensen in Sunday's New York Post should be required reading. In the course of making a point about how the nations of the world seem to tolerate terrorism when it promotes their immediate political aims, Jensen also provides a revealing catalog of the Osama bin Laden terror agenda:
Osama bin Laden was a “freedom fighter” when the CIA-backed mujahideen were waging war on the Soviet occupiers of Afghanistan. Now he is a terrorist condemned by all but a few rogue nations.
Yet in his own perverted logic he's still a freedom fighter seeking to free the holy land of Saudi Arabia from “occupation” by American troops, from American “exploitation” of its soil and from a “corrupt” and “godless” Saudi royal family.
He is also trying to free Iraq from U.S. sanctions and aerial bombardment; Palestinians from Israeli occupation; Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Algeria and other pro-Western Arab nations from their secular rulers; Bosnian Muslims and Kosovo Albanians from domination by Christian Serbs; Chechen Muslims from rule by Russia; Filipino Muslims from rule by the Catholic majority; Kashmiri Muslims from Hindu rule; Muslim Uighurs from Chinese rule; Indonesian Muslims from having to share their islands with Indonesian Christians; and Central Asian Muslims from their post-Soviet bosses.
So much for Israel being at the root of the terrorism problem!

Obama obtained NO verifiable commitments from Cuba it would desist from acts prejudicial to the US
No one would deny that the program subjected detainees to less than pleasant treatment, but the salient point is, for what purpose?
For the past six years President Obama has consistently deplored all Palestinian efforts to end-run negotiations in search of a UN-imposed agreement on Israel.
It’s not an admiration. It is simply a kind of journalist fascination. It stands out, it’s different from more traditional Orthodoxy.
It seems to us that while the Jewish entitlement to the land of Israel transcends the Holocaust, the Jewish experience during that tragic time is the most solid of foundations for these “national rights.”
Last year the Obama administration sought to minimize civilian deaths from drone strikes by generally requiring that missile attacks be limited to instances where Americans were directly threatened and there was a “near certainty” that no civilians would be killed.
If anything, Operation Protective Edge showed that Israel will not pull punches when it comes to combating terror.
Toward the end of Operation Protective Edge this past summer, the president was unusually vocal about Israel’s so-called disproportionate use of force and alleged lack of compliance with international humanitarian law.
