Flickering LightAs a former fundamentalist Protestant I extend kudos to Ben Noach Roy Neal Grissom, who touched on many significant issues in his Oct. 3 letter to the editor.Here’s a news flash – Torah isn’t politically correct. What is this insanity of Orthodox Jews who are registered Democrats? The Democratic party - that left-leaning tower of […]

Bush Deserves BetterWith his refusal to follow the lead of the so-called international community and his supportof Israel’s right to strike at terrorists in Syria, President Bush has once again demonstratedthat he is indeed the best friend Israel has ever had in the White House. Meanwhile, I find it ironic and deeply troubling that Jews […]

A Sister’s DespairI am the younger sister of Dr. David Applebaum and his surviving relative here in Israel. David and I had a very close relationship and both of us were committed to living in Israel.Upon learning that David was killed in a terror attack along with his daughter, I went into total shock. I’ve […]

Legitimizing The IllegitimateI wish to congratulate The Jewish Press for its courage in confronting the problem of misguided left-wing Orthodox rabbis who join with those of the deviant streams in Lishma. Such theological dialogues not only serve to legitimize these movements, they confuse the unlearned and further divide our people. Our sages’ condemnation of such […]

Simple QuestionI am a simple man. I possess no academic credentials, nor am I eloquent in my English. I barely survived the Holocaust as a child in the Budapest ghetto and most of my family died in Auschwitz or were shot dead into the Danube river.I spent my youth in Communist Eastern Europe, then Western […]

Columnist’s Anti-Bush TiradeThe Jewish Press, which I’ve been reading since its first issue, is a greatly improved paper - one that we can be proud of, even when we don?t totally agree with it.However, I felt a chill of fear when I read Emanuel Winston’s column of Sept. 5. I don’t want to sound like a […]

Ten Commandments And JewsThe battle over the display of the Ten Commandments should be a Jewish battle. The Founding Fathers knew that the only way to prevent the authority of an established church state was to guarantee individuals freedom of conscience. They were also aware of the dangers if state law derived from the absolute […]

Former Mayor Lauds BushIn President George W. Bush Israel has a friend and supporter who has exhibited more concern for the Jewish state than any other president, Republican or Democrat. President Reagan was a firm supporter of Israel, but George W. Bush is far and away more willing to stand up for the Jewish state […]

Foxman’s Insult To NixonRe ‘Truman Diaries Expose Toothless Watchdog’ (Media Monitor, July):The insult to Nixon (by the ADL’s Abe Foxman) is much worse than Jason Maoz noted. After Russian missiles virtually destroyed the Israeli Air Force in 1973, Henry Kissinger (following standard State Department protocol from the 1940′s to the present) did not want the […]

Looking For A Jewish DeLayI read with great interest – even fascination - Congressman Tom DeLay’s speech to the Knesset (“Be Not Afraid,” Jewish Press, Aug. 8) We should all be ashamed. There are few (if any) Jewish leaders willing to do what DeLay has done: publicly argue against a Palestinian state unless the Palestinians truly […]

High On ZionSidney Zion’s front-page essay (‘The Palestine Problem: It’s All In A Name,’ Jewish Press, Aug. 1) was one of the most thought-provoking articles I’ve read in a long, long time. Like I’m sure many other Jewish Press readers, I always argued that there’s no such thing as a Palestinian people while at the […]

Remembering GidoneWhen people read of my late son Gidone Busch, they have this image of an emotionally disturbed man with a hammer (which was small and weighed approximately eight ounces).Gidone was no threat either before or when he was surrounded and shot by several police officers on that terrible evening in August 1999. He had been […]

Blame Tenet For PollardThe revelation that CIA Director George Tenet offered questionable information to President Bush concerning Iraq and uranium brings to mind how strongly Tenet opposed President Clinton’s promise at the Wye River Conference to release Jonathan Pollard as a goodwill gesture to Israel.At that time Tenet declared that he would resign his position […]

Joe On JoeThe June issue of Reader’s Digest featured an interview with actor Harrison Ford. He was asked, “Your father was Roman Catholic, your mother Jewish. Which faith were you raised in?” Ford responded, “I was raised Democratic.” Harrison affirmed that he too shares thepolitics of his father, and went on to say that being […]

Angry In The HeartlandI realize this will be offensive to some of your readers. As a Christian, I must say it for those Jews who refuse to believe. (This is for bonehead Christians as well.)Islam is the ‘religion of peace’ – and its followers will kill you to prove it. I must admit I’ve never […]

’Refreshing Counterpoint’I moved to New York City in January 2002 and have found The Jewish Press to be a refreshing counterpoint to the daily anti-Semitic propaganda being fostered by the mainstream print and TV media. I buy The Jewish Press faithfully every week and have found your religious Zionist perspective to be spiritually and emotionally […]

Don’t Blame Bush I’ve received a number of e-mails recently blaming President Bush for Israel’s problems. This line of thinking is dangerous as well as silly, because it ignores the real reasons for Israel’s predicament. Israelis are getting killed because Israel refuses to defend itself. It’s not because of Bush or Powell. It’s because Sharon […]

Hatred’s RootsLeon Wieseltier’s commentary on anti-Semitism (‘The Village Is Not Burning,’ June 6) is erudite and elegant. Simpler, I suggest anti-Semitism’s bared roots are envious hostility andfear. Anti-Semitism is a primal, visceral result of antagonism to Torah truth.The Commandments to the world come through us. Being number two is a very difficult position, especially when […]

Road Map To JordanOriginally, today’s “Palestinians” were nomadic, itinerant laborers who were imported into the Jordan River region by the Ottoman Turks in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Ottomans tried to settle these nomads into this area as a source of cheap labor. Today, the population of Jordan is approximately 65 percent Palestinian. This […]

Friedman An ‘Arrogant Windbag’I greatly appreciated the two op-ed articles castigating Thomas Friedman that appeared in last week’s Jewish Press. Anyone who’s ever had the displeasure of viewing Friedman, either live or on television, knows the man is a windbag of almost incomprehensible arrogance. It’s painfully obvious that this is a man deeply in love […]
