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 […]

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.

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.
