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 […]

Beyond The PaleI resent the language used by columnist Emanuel Winston in last week’s Jewish Press. However one feels about the so-called ‘road map’ for Middle East peace, to imply, as Winston did, that President Bush is knowingly, and with hostile intent, pushing Israel to disaster goes beyond the pale of civilized discourse.Harvey LembergNew York, […]

Editor’s Note: This week the entire Letters section is devoted to comments on Shlomo Mostofsky’s April 25 front-page essay, “Modern Orthodoxy in a Changing World.” Reaction to the article – as well as to last week’s first batch of reader responses -has been unusually heavy and heated.No Apology NeededI feel that Mr. Mostofsky was way […]

No Fan Of Joe’sI wish to praise The Jewish Press for its refusal to give Sen. Joseph Lieberman a free pass simply because he identifies himself as an “observant” Jew (on the advice of his politicaladvisers, he stopped using the term “Orthodox” when he ran for vice president in 2000). As reflected in your recent […]

Put Weasels To WorkI loath the French as much as a person lawfully can, but I think we should let them have a part in post-war Iraq, as long as they pay a price. Make French, German and Russian soldiers clean up the remaining Ba’ath party rabble so our soldiers can come home to a […]

Steely DeterminationAs I watch the amazing resoluteness and steely determination displayed by our president in the face of vociferous domestic opposition and international condemnation, I can’t help thinking that had George W. Bush been in the White House in the late 1930’s and early 1940’s, far fewer Jews would have perished at the hands of […]

A Place At The SederHis Eminence HaRav Mordecai Eliyahu, the former chief rabbi of Israel, has given his blessing to a proposal by Rabbi Shlomo Aviner calling on all Jews to set a place at the table for Jonathan Pollard on Seder night. His empty chair symbolizes the longing and hope of the nation to […]

Exposing The TimesThe expose by Tom Gross that you carried on your front page last week (“Distortions andDouble Standards: How the New York Times Routinely Misreports Israel”) makes an iron-clad case against the journalism of what he calls the world’s most important paper. Gross’s work is especially important as the mainstream media by and large […]

Our Own Worst EnemyMy mother works in accounts receivables for an auto-parts company in Tel Aviv. Recently, one of the company’s Arab customers from Hebron bounced a check.
