Vindicating Principle

Posted on: March 7th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

We can be justly proud of all the media coverage revolving around a group of Orthodox Jewish students at Houston’s Beren Academy who had decided not to participate in a prestigious basketball competition if it conflicted with the requirements of their faith.

Afghanistan Burns

Posted on: February 29th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

We are now more than ten years into America's invasion of Afghanistan, which was designed to rout the Taliban who had harbored Al Qaeda. The fighting has resulted in thousands of American and NATO deaths and casualties as well as billions of dollars spent. It would appear, however, that little has been accomplished in terms of American goals, with the Taliban still a formidable military and popular force in the country.

 

African-Americans For Obama

Posted on: February 29th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

There is something off-putting about President Obama’s having announced in a video that his reelection campaign was launching a movement called “African-Americans for Obama.” The unease is not over an appeal to a particular ethnic group, which is a hallmark of American political campaigns.

 

Muslims Versus The NYPD

Posted on: February 29th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

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.

Division Over Iran?

Posted on: February 22nd, 2012

InDepthEditorial

It seems like only yesterday that the Obama administration missed no opportunity to declare its solidarity with Israel regarding the threat of a nuclear Iran.

Say No To UNESCO Waiver

Posted on: February 22nd, 2012

InDepthEditorial

We were disappointed by the Obama administration’s announcement that it intended to ask Congress to waive a ban on funding UNESCO because of its recognition of Palestinian statehood.

 

Iranian Attacks

Posted on: February 15th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

The two apparently coordinated attacks on Monday against Israeli diplomatic personnel present Israel with a significant challenge of how to respond, aside from an obvious concern for the safety of its citizens abroad.

 

The Obama Birth Control Imbroglio

Posted on: February 15th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

In many respects President Obama’s imposition of a federal mandate calling for free contraception and certain abortion procedures on demand – and the uproar it has caused – is emblematic of the problems inherent in the way he sees his role.

 

Obamacare And That Religious Exemption

Posted on: February 8th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

The Affordable Health Care Act is the official title of what has become known, primarily to its opponents, as Obamacare. It provides for a variety of changes in the American health care system and has generated enormous controversy, some of which will be the focus of the Supreme Court in the next few months.

 

President Obama, Israel and Iran

Posted on: February 8th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

Many of us continue to be apprehensive about what the Middle East policy of a reelected President Obama would look like. Though Mr. Obama continues to insist that U.S. support for the security of Israel is "unshakable," his turnaround on pressing Israel on the 1967 lines and settlement growth, while welcome, was unnerving. Not only did it occur at the outset of the presidential campaign season, it was also uncommonly abrupt.

 

Time For A Presidential Clarification

Posted on: February 1st, 2012

InDepthEditorial

Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas's statement last Saturday that "Israeli intransigence" was behind the collapse of the recently convened Israel-Palestinian talks in Jordan may provide a moment of truth for President Obama.

 

The Police Commissioner And ‘The Third Jihad’

Posted on: February 1st, 2012

InDepthEditorial

The current controversy surrounding the film "The Third Jihad" is ostensibly over the propriety of the NYPD's airing it as part of in a training program.

The Jewish Press Won’t Be Silenced

Posted on: January 31st, 2012

InDepthEditorial

A significant number of suicide attempts are committed by boys from not just religious but rabbinic homes -- because they thought they were homosexual and had no place in the Orthodox world they grew up in, even if they had never acted on those impulses.

The Sound Of Silence

Posted on: January 26th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

Given its context, the recent declaration of the mufti of Jerusalem that it is Muslim destiny to destroy the Jewish people cannot be dismissed as the primitive rant of a crackpot cleric.

 

What Were They Thinking?

Posted on: January 19th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

We were dismayed by a press release the other day from the World Jewish Congress describing a meeting WJC leaders had with PA President Mahmoud Abbas in London.

Postponing Those Joint Maneuvers: A Very Big Deal

Posted on: January 19th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

No one in the know is talking about the reason(s) for the abrupt postponement of the of those much ballyhooed joint U.S.-Israel military maneuvers that had been scheduled for this spring.

The Truth About Magen David Adom

Posted on: January 11th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

Back in September 2011, in an editorial titled "Magen David Adom: No Time to Blink," we expressed our dismay over reports in several Israeli newspapers that Israel's national ambulance service – its version of the American Red Cross – was in the process of removing the display of the Magen David symbol on its ambulances operating over the Green Line as a sop to the International Red Cross and the Palestinian Red Crescent, which are averse to the display of the Jewish symbol there.

 

President Obama Makes His Move

Posted on: January 11th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

We do not mean to denigrate the impressive military support and cooperation the Obama administration has directed toward Israel.

 

Iran Divestment

Posted on: January 11th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

We applaud the passage by the New York State Legislature of the Iran Divestment Act of 2012.

 

An Obscenity In Jerusalem

Posted on: January 4th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

We thought the outrageous incident involving an eight-year-old child being spat on by a haredi man because he didn't think she was modestly dressed was about as over the top as one could get.
