Hypocritical Al Gore

Jason Maoz’s Jan. 18 Media Monitor column onAl Gore was excellent. Gore’s hypocrisy on critical matters as well as his nimble position switches didn’t hurt him politically because, as a Democrat, he knew full well that the liberal media would never hound or even confront him.

If he were to ever run for office again, the $500 million sale to Al Jazeera would not be considered a contentious point liberal voters – even to Jewish voters. He’s a

Democrat; case closed.

Where’s The Hard Line?

By linking the terms “hard-line” and “Likud-leaning,” reader Leibel Korman (Letters, Jan. 18) is going against the historical facts.

Likud Prime Minister Menachem Begin relinquished the Sinai to Egypt.

Likud Prime Minister Ariel Sharon unilaterally withdrew from Gaza. During this unilateral withdrawal, the Jewish pioneers in Gaza were removed in a very cruel manner. If this is hawkish, I don’t know what hawkish is.

In 1977, Begin offered an autonomy plan for Judea, Samaria, and Gaza. If this is hard-line, I don’t know what hard-line is.

Originally, after the Six-Day War, many of the supporters of the Land of Israel movement – the movement to extend Jewish sovereignty over Judea, Samara, and Gaza – were Labor members. These included Rachel Yanait Ben-Zvi, who was the wife of Yitzhak Ben-Zvi, the second president of Israel. Rachel Yanait was a labor organizer in pre-state Israel during Turkish Ottoman rule.

How does a soldier from a religious home fall in love with a soldier from a non- religious kibbutz?

In 19th century entire ancient Jewish communities fled Palestine to escape brutal Muslim authorities

Responsibility lies with both the UN and Hamas, and better commitments should have been demanded from both parties in the ceasefire.

But the world is forever challenging our Jewish principle and our practices.

If this is how we play the game, we will lose. By that I mean we will lose everything.

Reportedly, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates have formed a bloc that seeks to counter Islamist influence in the Middle East.

One wonders how the IDF could be expected to so quickly determine the facts.

While there is no formula that will work for everyone, there are some strategies that if followed carefully and consistently can help our children – and us – gain the most from the upcoming school year.

We risk our lives to help those who do what they can to kill to our people .
