Flawed HistoryAccording to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, the Holocaust never happened. Even more malevolent than Ahmadinejad’s denial of the Holocaust is the clear inference that Israel owes its creation to the Holocaust.Contrary to Ahmadinejad’s version of history, the million or so Jews who fled the Soviet Union were victims of Russian xenophobia, not […]

To Err Is HumanPlease allow me to use this space to apologize to readers for my faux pas in my Purim front-page essay (“Purim: Agony and Ecstasy,” March 10). The Hebrew year as appears in the opening feature of the essay should have read 5583 rather than 5183 (making it 1823 instead of 1423); likewise, […]

Seidenfeld Yahrzeit This Shabbos marks the first yahrzeit for the four Seidenfeld children of Teaneck who perished in a fire. Philyss Seidenfeld, the mother of the children, has requested that as many individuals, communities and shuls as possible learn on that day in memory of the children and as an aliyah for their neshomos.

Bad IdeaI’ve always been a Bush supporter, but the administration’s plan to give our ports over to a UAE company is unconscionable. The Coast Guard cannot prevent infiltration by bribe. All it takes is 19 people to turn this country upside down. What’s next, hiring Iranians to man our control towers?Josh GreenbergerBrooklyn, NY  Grim OutlookHere in […]

Lost Gemaras Recently a Port Authority chaplain (who is also a chaplain at UMDNJ, my place of business) handed me two travel-size Gemaras he found at Newark Airport this past December. The chaplain, a Muslim, hoped I would be able to locate the rightful owner of the seforim. The name in both was in Hebrew: […]

Learning From HistoryIn the 1930′s a madman ascended the world stage with a public declaration of his intentions. The world stood by and watched him build up a vast military killing machine. This encouraged him to expand his ambitions to world conquest. That, of course, could not be permitted, so several nations joined together and […]

Nevertheless, Mr. Olmert and his cohorts have embraced policies that […]

Not Convinced By Plaut I always enjoy Steven Plaut’s articles in The Jewish Press and until last week (“Israel’s Plague of Conspiracism,” front-page essay) always found myself in complete agreement with him. I do not know Mr. Chamish and almost always dismiss his claims; in addition, I am not one who sees a conspiracy around […]

Lessons From MisfitsPat Robertson declares that Ariel Sharon’s massive stroke was the result of divine wrath for dividing the Holy Land. The ADL’s Abe Foxman tells Robertson that his views are un-Christian. There are a couple of lessons to learn from these two misfits.The first is that Foxman makes a better Christian than Pat Robertson, […]

Note To ReadersWhen we published Rabbi Moshe Faskowitz’s open letter of resignation from the Rabbinical Council of America in our issue of Dec. 23, we were unaware that he is a cousin of Rabbi Mordecai Tendler’s wife. While it has no bearing on the particulars of the Tendler-RCA controversy, or on the questions raised by […]

Spielberg’s Selective EquivalencyIt is clear that Steven Spielberg’s latest movie, “Munich,” attempts to portray the Muslim killers of the unsuspecting Israeli athletes as just simple family men, no different from the Israelis they murdered at the Munich Olympics.We all should ask ourselves, given that we cannot ask it of Spielberg or his ultra-leftist screenwriter, Tony […]

Kahane’s Views Not `Abnormal’Elliot Resnick (“Kahane’s Ideas, 15 years and 1,300 Deaths Later,” op-ed, Dec. 9) writes that “Kahane felt abnormal times required an abnormal response.” I highly doubt that Rabbi Kahane would have agreed with this presumptuous notion. His response to the demographic crisis in Israel could not be termed “abnormal” in the least. […]

U.S. Jews’ PrioritiesHillel Halkin’s May 13 op-ed (“The Bush Conundrum”) was the best defense of President Bush I’ve read anywhere. The only problem is that Mr. Halkin assumes that your typical liberal American Jew has Israel at the center of his or her priorities, and nothing could be less true.Ask a sampling of Jewish women […]

Rabbi Porush’s CourageReader Joseph Weidenfeld is highly unfair, and way off base, for insulting Rabbi Menachem Porush (Letters, April 29). Weidenfeld claims Rabbi Porush has “chutzpah” for criticizing the girush (disengagement) from Gaza and Shomron when his own party, Agudath Israel, supported this policy and saved the Sharon government from collapse.Such reasoning is patently ridiculous.
