With the Jayson Blair scandal occupying center stage for weeks and the resignations of two top honchos at the New York Times over Blair's admitted manufacturing of the news and plagiarism, one would have thought that the journalistic world would stay away from anything that would remind readers of the affair.

By any standard, the moment of truth for the "road map" has arrived.

As the "road map" process inches forward, there are eerie reminders of the failures of the Oslo "peace process."

Some time ago, a veteran, prominently Orthodox Jewish, New York State civil servant was alleged to have misused the reimbursement process in connection with living expenses for his Albany stays.

As we noted several weeks ago, despite the continuing coverage of claims of abuse in our yeshivas, attesting to the significance we attach to the problem, we nonetheless expressed our serious reservations about how the issue was treated in The Jewish Week.

It seems de rigueur these days to claim that President Bush prevaricated when he took us to war against Iraq.

As it now appears, the jury did not hold Lemrick Nelson responsible for the death of Yankel Rosenbaum, even though they convicted Nelson of stabbing him, because "everybody knew" that the Rosenbaum family has filed a lawsuit against the hospital, claiming he died because of inadequate post-stabbing care.

Even as the so-called road map is now formally upon us, it is hardly necessary for The Jewish Press to once again go on record in opposition to the establishment of a Palestinian state.

The Jewish Press joins Klal Yisroel in mourning the passing of Rav Tuvia Goldstein, zt"l, long one of the most senior and respected Torah personalities on the world scene and revered as the Z'kan (dean) HaRoshei Yeshivos in America.

In its last term, the United States Supreme Court narrowly upheld the constitutionality of publicly financed tuition vouchers for parochial school education. In effect the court said that if a public authority decided to include parochial schools in a program of general application, theFirst Amendment's requirement of separation between church and state did not prohibit it.

In its May 14 and May 18 editions, The New York Times demonstrated that its pro-Arab/anti-Israel bias continues to drive its treatment of the Middle East.

The brazenness of Abu Mazen is startling. He will not, he is widely reported to have said, doanything to stop Hamas and the other terrorist groups unless Israel accepts the "road map" - with its requirement of an immediate cessation of Israeli anti-terror activity in the West Bank and Gaza - as is and begins to implement its provisions.

We were sharply critical of 2000 Vice Presidential candidate Joe Lieberman over a variety of issues. And we expect that we will have a lot to say about him in the coming months as he pursues the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination. Hopefully, he will draw more positive comment from us this time around as he runs on his own and not as second banana.

It now appears that The Times is finally 'fessing up to the
most outrageous abuses by one of its reporters and is
conducting an investigation into the full scope of Jayson
Blair's misleading of its readers. From what is already known,
for a period of four years, Blair fabricated news stories. But
what is intriguing is that some higher-ups at The Times
apparently were aware of Blair's wrongdoing, but for reasons
not yet clear ? he was not discharged. Some are suggesting
that notions of "affirmative action" (Blair is African-
American), were in play in Blair's being hired and not let go.

The Jewish Press' continuing coverage, in our Family Matters section, of students' claims of abuse at the hands of unidentified teachers in our yeshivos, attests to the significance we attach to the problem. Yet we are constrained to note our serious reservations about how the issue has been treated in The Jewish Week.

As Secretary of State Powell continues in efforts to promote the so-called Middle East "Road Map," the Bush administration's apparent departure from the firm, uncompromising anti-terror American resolve President Bush articulated on June 24th last year and re-enforced byOperation Iraqi Freedom, is nothing short of stunning.

As obscene as Lemrick Nelson's admission that he killed Yankel Rosenbaum most certainly is, what it says about how our criminal justice system is failing the Jewish community willperhaps be more enduring. In dramatic fashion, by highlighting the truth of something a jury in 1992 declined to acknowledge despite overwhelming evidence, it underscores something thatshould have been apparent for more than a decade. While crimes against victims who happen to be Jewish may not regularly go unpunished, the high profile, notorious ones, those whichhighlight the Jewishness of the victim, are a different matter altogether.

It was not for nothing that last June, President Bush declared that for any progress towards Palestinian goals, there must be a "new and different Palestinian leadership ... not compromised by terror." Plainly the President had enough of Arafat's duplicitousness and deceit.

There are many things that come to mind as Israel marks 55 years since it won its independence in 1948. If nothing else, Israel has demonstrated that Jews, given even less than half a chance, can collectively rise to the very peak of human achievement. We Jews have always contributed to mankind in much greater proportion than our numbers would suggest,wherever we found ourselves. But it is in Israel, where Jews have organized a state, which after a mere 55 years, has fostered wondrous achievements in virtually all areas of humanendeavor, that what we are capable of is so obvious.
