No one knows what will replace the brutal Assad regime: a Jihadist junta, a drawn out civil war or, or even the eventual rise of a freedom loving society. But it is certain that breaking the Syria-Iran axis will benefit Israel and the world also stands to gain through any weakening of the ambitious Iranian war machine.

We were encouraged by the statement of Kings County District Attorney Charles Hynes that he will not agree to any plea bargains and will seek the maximum jail sentence of up to fifteen years in prison for anyone convicted in last week’s Flatbush firebombings. Several cars were destroyed and swastikas and anti-Jewish slurs were painted on nearby park benches in the early morning attack.

The muted reaction from Tehran to the mysterious explosion at an Iranian missile base over the weekend that killed 17, including a key figure in Iran’s missile program, strongly suggests that Iran’s continuing bellicosity regarding possible Israeli or international military action or sanctions is just so much empty bravado.

As is being widely reported, microphones accidentally left on at the G20 meeting last week picked up some rather interesting private remarks between President Barak Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Last week the Anti Defamation League and the American Jewish Committee circulated a proposed “unity pledge” for American Jews which, according to a press release, was designed “to encourage other national organizations, elected officials, religious leaders, community groups and individuals to rally around bipartisan support for Israel while preventing the Jewish state from becoming a wedge issue in the upcoming campaign season.”

With surprising swiftness, almost immediately after UNESCO granted full membership to the Palestinian Authority on Monday, the United States announced it was cutting off all funding to the UN’s major cultural agency.

There is an element in the Occupy Wall Street movement that should concern the Jewish community. It is not that this so-called people’s protest against alleged corporate greed and banking industry excess has become defined by several anti-Semitic signs in Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park and some movement-related videos that have surfaced. It hasn’t.

We have come to expect The New York Times to seize almost any opportunity to peddle its view that Israel is the real impediment to peace in the Middle East. This time the Times outdid itself with a bizarre spin on the Gilad Shalit release. This from an editorial last week.

We join all Americans in mourning the deaths of those who perished in the crash in Afghanistan of a military Chinook helicopter on Sunday. The deaths of these young men are a vivid reminder that even in these times of great self-interest and self- indulgence, there are those who selflessly and unhesitatingly put their lives on the line to defend the nation.

If Republicans in high elective office had urged the media not to report on the ideas of Democrats on contentious issues because such reporting would tend to legitimatize really absurd notions, the protests would be deafening, especially from the likes of The New York Times. Likewise if Republicans had taken to referring to Democratic legislators who outmaneuvered them in a losing political battle as "terrorists."

An Associated Press report on Sunday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had agreed to negotiate the borders of a Palestinian state based on the 1948 Armistice lines understandably created quite a stir. Mr. Netanyahu's public confrontation with President Obama over this very issue remains vivid in everyone's memory, as does the enthusiastic and virtually unanimous bipartisan support for Mr. Netanyahu's position expressed by Congress.

The Jewish Press has regularly noted the efforts of the politically correct crowd to place concerns about Muslim fundamentalism beyond the reach of normal discourse. Thus we had something to say about New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's claim that any questioning of the efforts to build a mosque at ground zero was ipso facto bigoted and violated the sponsors' right to free speech.

The sad news of the passing of Percy Sutton at the age of 89 brought back a flood of memories. In the 1970s and early '80s, I worked closely with the then-Manhattan borough president and a key power broker in New York politics when I served as executive director of the Greater New York Conference on Soviet Jewry and later of the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York.

As is evident from this week's Media Monitor, readers of The Jewish Press should not be shocked by the revelation of President Harry S. Truman's anti-Jewish statements discovered in a 1947 diary ("The Jews, I find are very, very selfish....")

We were as surprised as everyone else by the poll by a Palestinian pollster that barely 10% ofPalestinians who had at some point lived within the "green line" - or had parents who did - had any desire to return.
