Right GesturesThe Israeli government has decided to once again make ‘good will’ gestures by pulling the army back and releasing many terrorists. This has been done dozens of times in the past with disastrous results.Mr. Sharon, how about good will gestures to the Jewish people for a change? These can include: reasserting control over har […]

Misguided EndorsementYour endorsement of George W. Bush for a second term is misguided.Have you forgotten that from the beginning of 2001, the administration has taken a laissez faire position with regard to Israel? This exacerbated the tension of September 2000 when Sharon went to the wall and Arafat began his Intifada while the attention of […]

Best Of Times, Worst Of TimesThis November, American Jews have an extra reason for thanksgiving as we happily participate in numerous celebratory events to mark the 350th anniversary of Jewish settlement in the United States – a venerable and wonderful milestone. Simultaneously, Israelis despondently disengage from their nine-times-older history. Despite Arab attacks, Israel finalizes its […]

Jewish Apathy (I)The vehement, sometimes violent, reaction Mr. Ishmael Khaldi experienced in response to his support for Israel (“Israeli Bedouin: American Jewish Apathy Shocks Me,” op-ed, Oct. 15) is, unfortunately, not limited to college campuses.Articles I had put up on my website, which did nothing more than support Israel, received an avalanche of condemnations and […]

Life Of LiesIt was fitting that the terrorist Arafat was the leader of the so-called Palestinian people. Arafat lied his whole life about being born in Israel when in fact he was born in Cairo. He lied just like most of the Muslim world is lying when they say the Jewish land of Israel is […]

When Sharon Was SharonSome words from Ariel Sharon’s 1995 eulogy for Ofrah Felix, who was murdered by terrorists:“I remember her as a little girl in the Shomron horizons, one of the followers of this beautiful and difficult land. How can we eulogize a 19 year old girl? A girl who is a sacrifice to concessions […]

Unite Behind The WinnerDuring a Thursday morning interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Boston Red Sox pitching star Curt Schilling looked into the camera and said, “Tell everybody to vote, and vote Bush next week.” Many were excited to hear this beloved pitcher endorse President Bush. Well, the people have spoken. Our democratic electoral process […]

True ContritionI recently received three 100-dollar bills in the mail from ‘Ploni Almoni.’ Enclosed was a note from the sender, who confessed that many years ago he accidentally dented my car. He asked to be pardoned for that act.I vaguely remembered the incident, but most impressive to me was that this gentleman did real teshuvah. […]

Dej? VuThe story of the abandonment of the Jews during the Holocaust, retold in Marvin Kalb’s marvelous front-page essay (“Misreporting the Holocaust,” Oct. 22), is of course a sad one. Kalb reminds us how Franklin Roosevelt, an aristocratic blue-blood, and The New York Times with its weak Jewish owners, cared little about the Jews.It should […]

Rather Lame ApologyIt’s ironic that Dan Rather’s mea culpa concerning the forged memos has come amidst the aseret yemei teshuva. But when one considers Mr. Rather’s admission of guilt, one crucial component was strikingly absent – no apology was given to President Bush.Halacha is unequivocal: anyone who wishes to repent after committing a sin against […]

Federation Follies It was nice, in an ironic way, to read Arlene Peck’s op-ed column “Not One More Dime For Federation,” Aug. 20).Just three days before I received the issue of The Jewish Press containing Ms. Peck’s article, I got a call from the New Mexico Federation asking for a donation. I told the woman […]

Beware The GreensThe article on Ralph Nader (“Ralph Nader’s Curious New Allies,” front page essay, Aug. 13) comes as no surprise to anyone familiar with the Green Party, from which Nader now pretends to distance himself. The Green platform is Judeophobic and pro-Palestinian and Muslim. It calls for the withdrawal of Jews from liberated territory […]

Liberal LogicDoesn’t the liberal view of the world seem so alien? A genocidal madman like Saddam Hussein is beaten and captured, yet liberals are calling for George Bush’s head. Huh? Islamic terrorists blow up busloads of Jewish children and liberals vilify the Israelis and sympathize with the Arabs. This obsession with moral equivalence is so […]
