The Rose Nomination

It has largely passed under the radar screen, but Stephanie Rose, who was the deputy chief of the criminal division in the U.S. attorney’s office in northern Iowa at the time of the Agriprocessors immigration and Rubashkin prosecutions, has been nominated by President Obama to be a federal judge.

Controversy has surrounded those governmental efforts, with some criticizing them as miscarriages of justice. So it is dismaying that Ms. Rose’s confirmation hearings have been all but ignored by Jewish organizations.

In fact, Senate confirmation hearings are a traditional venue for interested parties to raise concerns about a nominee’s past record. Indeed, Ms. Rose has been questioned very closely about the en-masse prosecution of 306 workers and fast track hearings in temporary courtrooms on a cattle fairground, featuring wholesale plea agreements. But it does not appear there was any serious focus on the planning of the rather unusual original immigration raid or her role in it. Further, it does not appear she was even asked about her role in the Rubashkin prosecutions or about the prosecutions themselves.

Curiously, after the events in Postville in 2008, Ms. Rose was nominated for and was confirmed as U.S. attorney in Northern Iowa. That too seemed to have passed without notice.

If Hamas is ISIS, the world asks, why didn’t Israel destroy it given justification and opportunity?

That key is the disarming of Hamas and the demilitarization of Gaza – as the U.S., EU, and others agreed to in principle at the end of Operation Protective Edge.

We have no doubt there are those who deeply desire to present themselves as being of a gender that is not consistent with their anatomy, and we take no joy in the pain and embarrassment they suffer.

Does it not seem ironic that just on the day all of Israel is joyously celebrating another year of having concluded the public reading of the entire Pentateuch, we must mournfully and even tearfully commemorate the death of the individual who imparted to us God’s Torah in the first place?

Why is “Palestine” worthier of “statehood recognition” than ISIS, another terrorist gang seeking it?
