Monitor’s Online Reading List



The Monitor’s sort-of-annual listing of recommended websites and blogs is a little different this time. Previous listings were an amalgam of readers’ favorites and the Monitor’s own choices; this one is purely the Monitor’s concoction.

There are plenty of additional sites that could have been included, but for the sake of space and sanity the decision was made to highlight only those to which the Monitor repairs on a more than occasional basis. Most of the sites listed can be characterized as centrist-conservative, reflecting the Monitor’s preferences and prejudices. But there are those – The Daily Howler, The New Republic and Haaretz are the obvious examples – that are anything but right-wing.

The list has been assembled in no particular order.

We see pictures of mosques, monuments for terrorists, illegal schools, and hundreds of apartments being built on Jewish land without repercussions. We are losing Jewish property, so it is up to us to protect it.

Thus, despite the increasingly serious problems for the mayor arising out of the current anti-police protests, Mr. de Blasio apparently will be cut no slack by those who seem to be aiming for a significant role in running the city from the streets and who will do whatever they can to prevent their momentum from ebbing.

Also left unsaid was the fact that the menorah and its oil were in the Beit HaMikdash, which of course was located on Har HaBayit – the Temple Mount that present-day Muslims claim as their own.

These are not necessarily the best all-around biographies or studies of the individual presidents listed (though some rank right up there), but the strongest in terms of exploring presidential attitudes and policies toward Israel.

The Clintonan “engagement” liberals remember with such fondness did nothing but embolden Arafat and Hamas and Hizbullah as they witnessed Israel’s only real ally elevate process ahead of policy.
