Congratulations to all the winners of the JewishPress.com raffle at The Event
I felt that somehow, if they only knew Jews better, they would see that we are not “dogs” and they would love us.
Only after becoming observant many years later did my views change. I learned that Jews have a long history of being hated; that no matter how “nice” we are there will always be those who hate us for our values and our God.
If the U.S. army does not go through a similar learning process soon, I’m afraid our soldiers, may God forbid, experience more Fort Hood disasters.
America’s leadership must realize that radical Islam is an implacable foe based on a deep-rooted and religious ideology – and that there are Muslims who maintain these beliefs and mosques that preach them right here on American soil. Hasan actually attended one of them, in 2001 – the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Great Falls, Virginia, where two of the September 11 terrorists also prayed.
America’s leadership, especially its military, must strip itself of political correctness and educate itself about radical Islam. It must then educate its soldiers so that they are not left as unprotected as sitting ducks on a Texas army base. Neglecting to do this is tantamount to criminal negligence.

While there is no formula that will work for everyone, there are some strategies that if followed carefully and consistently can help our children – and us – gain the most from the upcoming school year.
We risk our lives to help those who do what they can to kill to our people .
Twain grasped amazingly well the pulse of the Jewish people.
Israelis in Gaza border communities need to get out; who will help them?
The contrast between the mentality of Israel and the mentality of Hamas was never so loudly expressed as when the Arab killers became heroes and the Jewish killers became prisoners.
There is a threat today representing a new category of missionary:They call themselves “Hayovel.”
Just as we would never grant legitimacy to ISIS, we should not grant legitimacy to Hamas.
Is Woodstock still leading the world to destruction?
Wye would be seen to have set the groundwork for the creation of a Palestinian state
Blaming Israel for the violence in Gaza, he ends up justifying Hamas’s terrorism.
In the Thirties it was common for anti-Semites to call on Jews to “go to Palestine!”
Obama never hid his contempt for the Israeli government or the majority of Israel’s voters.
“This arbitrary ban is an ugly stain on our democracy, and it also undermines the rule of law.”
We take US “aid” for psychological reasons-if we have an allowance, that means we have a father.
Hellenism captured the imagination and hearts not only of the Greeks but of the majority of Jews in ancient Judea.
The motto “In God We Trust” is emblazoned on our currency and in courtrooms across America. And yet it seems we’re trusting less and less in God these days. With each passing year, secularists and sophisticated intellectuals manage to kick Him out just a little more from the public square.
Two weeks ago I found myself at the International Conference of Chabad Shluchos in Crown Heights running a program together with my friend Rivka Kotlarsky for 120 Guests of Shluchos – many of them not yet especially observant.
“If you put Google, Apple, and Microsoft together, it still doesn’t compare to the miracles of Jewish renaissance I have witnessed in this country,” I said to two reporters from The New York Times and Moscow Times.
I went to a sentencing several weeks ago – my first ever. The man being sentenced, William Hill, was convicted by a jury of brutally beating Jacob Gerstle, an 81-year-old member of my community in Washington Heights, in 2006.
Anger – no, fury – was my first reaction to news of the rampage at Fort Hood last week. Thirteen dead and thirty wounded is tragic enough. But how could the alleged murderer, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, have gone undetected on an American military base for so long?
I couldn’t wait to board the speedy Acela train to Washington, DC two weeks ago to hear an old friend of mine, constitutional legal wiz Floyd Abrams, argue before the Supreme Court. I had watched him twice before and was riveted each time. This case, involving the McCain-Feingold Campaign finance reform act, promised to be a landmark in First Amendment law. To watch top-notch lawyers spar swords with some of the best legal minds in the country is quite an experience and I couldn’t wait to feel that intellectual thrill once again.
