True DepravityLast week’s bombings of Israeli armored personnel carriers in Gaza are to be expected during times of war. After the first attack, however, Palestinians paraded through the streets with body parts of the dead Israeli soldiers. Later, a video was broadcast throughout the Arab world displaying the decapitated head of one of the dead […]

Mario’s MushThis retired firefighter has a question for Mario Cuomo, who, as the Media Monitor reported, stated that the U.S. should tell Israel, “Up until now it was just you and the Palestinians killing one another – now you are killing us. Now there are people out there who are taking Israel as the provocation […]

My sister Binyamina was living in the Old City of Jerusalem. On Friday night I went to daven with my […]

Precedent-Setting PresidentLast week President George W. Bush made more explicit than ever before his belief that the war Israel faces against Arab Islamic terrorism is the same as the war the United States faces. His actual words were:“The violence we are seeing in Iraq is familiar. The terrorist who takes hostages or plants a roadside […]

Eye On KerryI appreciate the careful scrutiny of John Kerry that one finds in your editorials and among many of your columnists. This is one shifty, arrogant politician, and I fear for America’s future – and, by extension, Israel’s – should he be elected president. Kerry’s wife is another potential problem – the groups to […]

Google ProtestUpon reading in The Jewish Press (news story, March 19) that an anti-Semitic website is the first result one gets when typing in the word “jew” on Google, the Internet’s number one search engine, I contacted Google and basically got a run-around. I was told that in order for Google to rectify the problem, […]

Responding To Alarm BellsMichael Freund’s alarming op-ed of March 12 (“Anti-Semitism Not The Main Threat To Europe’s Jews”) is disturbing because what he describes is readily apparent to anyone who bothers to learn and understand what is happening – the trend and statistics he presents have been ongoing for years. Our rapid downward slide continues […]

Hypocritical TimesJason Maoz’s Media Monitor column, in exposing the unmitigated hypocrisy of the liberal press – most prominently The New York Times – is consistently excellent.The Times, which tirelessly bombards its readers with letters to the editor, articles and op-ed pieces excoriating President Bush for commencing the Iraq War on “false pretenses,” had the audacity […]

Father And SonI thoroughly enjoyed Avraham Shmuel Lewin’s interview with Yair Shamir in last week’s Jewish Press. At age 59, Mr. Shamir is still young enough to consider a new career in politics, and weall know how starved Israel is for real leadership.Speaking of Israeli leadership, many of us took Mr. Shamir’s father for granted […]

Magnificent RumsfeldYour Feb. 27 editorial on the Democratic presidential candidates was on target. I know that liberal Jews – those whose prime concerns in life are gay rights, abortion and keeping any manifestation of religion out of the public square – will vote for any Democrat that comes down the pike. But I don’t see […]

History’s LessonsIt is beyond argument that an Arab ‘Palestine’ will be another terrorist state. The area is currently ruled by terrorists, dominated by terrorist organizations, and populated by a society so ingrained with hate for Israel that it will take generations – if it happens at all – to change that mindset. It is imperative […]

Sharpton Democrats (I)Imagine if a white supremacist were running for the Republican presidential nomination and the party’s other candidates not only refused to denounce him, but actually welcomed his candidacy and went out of their way to make nice with him at debates and other joint appearances.Switch the words ‘white supremacist’ with ‘Al Sharpton’ and […]

Supports Bush, But Criticism OKI agree with Assemblyman Dov Hikind that George W. Bush seems the best choice for the Jewish community (“No Choice But Bush, op-ed, Jan. 23). I do think, however, that Hikind presents a rather simplistic critique of the Democratic candidates’ campaign statements. After all, while it’s true that we are at […]

Case StudyMemo to reader Joan Borenstein, whose anti-Bush rant was an amazing case study in liberal denial (‘Jail to the Chief?’ Letters, Jan. 16):The governments of Germany, Russia, France, England, Israel and China were in agreement with the U.S. that Saddam possessed weapons of mass destruction. The Clinton administration was convinced Iraq not only had […]

Hail To The ChiefI enjoyed reading William Rapfogel’s account of receiving a personal check from President Bush for the work of the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty (‘An Envelope From Texas,’ op-ed, Jan. 9).I?ve always had a warm feeling for President Bush. He seems very down to earth, sincere, and he sure makes the right […]

’Activist’ Doesn’tMean LiberalI really enjoyed reading “Fighting Carter: Memories Of 1980” (op-ed, Dec. 19). As a college activist, I particularly appreciated how it demonstrated that not everyone of my age group – and this was as true in 1980 as it is in 2003 – is necessarily a liberal.We often picture in our minds young people […]
