Differentiating Between Blind Hate And Honest Criticism

Posted on: January 9th, 2008

InDepthOp-Eds

Whenever people ask me to explain Jewish anti-Semitism, Jewish anti-Zionism, or Israeli anti-Zionism, I pause and then try to discuss these questions calmly and dispassionately.

 

Foreign Policy And The Wannabe Presidents

Posted on: January 3rd, 2008

InDepthOp-Eds

Events have a way of clarifying even the muddiest political puzzles. As Americans prepared to pick the finalists for the presidential contest, the chaos in Pakistan served as a reminder of a simple truth about electing our chief executive.

InDepthOp-Eds

In Divrei Yaakov, the recently published collection of divrei Torah on Sefer Shemot by Rabbi Jack Tauber, zt”l, there is a discussion of the role played by the Egyptian people in enslaving the Jews. According to Rabbi Tauber, and as other commentators have also noted, Pharaoh did not force the Egyptians but convinced them, saying, “Behold the Children of Israel are greater than us ... and will become our enemies” (1:9).

It began as just another exercise in political academic wackiness at Hebrew University.

 

It’s Official: Democratic Hawks An Extinct Species

Posted on: December 27th, 2007

InDepthOp-Eds

On the eve of the brief caucus and primary season that will probably determine the two major-party presidential nominations by mid-February at the latest, most members of Congress are playing their cards close to their vests. The reason is there’s a lot to be lost in backing the wrong horse.

 

‘Terrorists’ Or ‘Insurgents’?

Posted on: December 27th, 2007

InDepthOp-Eds

The bombs detonated in cities throughout the world in recent years, killing and wounding large numbers of innocent civilians, should make it obvious that the perpetrators of such indiscriminate brutality cannot be thought of as “freedom fighters” or, to cite another popular term, “insurgents.” They are terrorists and must be treated accordingly. They definitely do not deserve the tolerance, compassion or legal rights generally accorded freedom fighters.

The election season is upon us. Once again, we are being called on to select the next leader of the free world.

 

A Glimpse Into The Mindset Of A Judicial Oligarch

Posted on: December 27th, 2007

InDepthOp-Eds

“A democracy must fight terror with one hand tied behind its back.” So stated Aharon Barak, the former president of Israel’s Supreme Court at a forum I recently attended at the Shasha Center for Strategic Studies at the Mount Scopus campus of Hebrew University.

 

The Selective Indignation Of Israel’s Academic Critics

Posted on: December 27th, 2007

InDepthOp-Eds

As evidence of what Professor Edward Alexander has called “the explosive power of boredom” in rousing the liberal professoriate to its ideological feet, Harvard’s own professor of Anthropology and of African and African American Studies, L. Roland Matory, called upon his academic peers once again in a November faculty meeting to foster “a civil dialogue in which people with a broad range of perspectives feel safe and are encouraged to express their reasoned and evidence-based ideas.”

Eating Latkes At The White House

Posted on: December 19th, 2007

InDepthOp-Eds

I ate latkes under the watchful gaze of President Abraham Lincoln. I could have chosen sushi, or gravlax, or glatt kosher roast beef or even lamb chops, but latkes, for me, was the appropriate choice. The latkes were more than delicious – they were symbolic.

More than 140,000 people in the past month have clicked their way to a dramatic YouTube video (www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZihm6VlYjo) about a historic Jewish religious service led by a Brooklyn-born U.S. Army chaplain.

 

GOP’s Dead-End Debate On Immigration

Posted on: December 19th, 2007

InDepthOp-Eds

Political consultants make their money in lots of ways, but one of the key insights into campaigns is not so much about picking candidates as it is in picking issues.

 

Palestinians Still Aren’t Ready For Peace

Posted on: December 19th, 2007

InDepthOp-Eds

I feel as though my people are asleep at the wheel of history. After 2,000 years of yearning for a return to Jerusalem, we have had a mere 40 years – a tiny nanosecond in historical terms – of renewed sovereignty over our ancient, sacred city, and it is now once again on the negotiating table.

 

Al Gore, America Basher

Posted on: December 19th, 2007

InDepthOp-Eds

I may be old-fashioned, but I think it’s wrong to publicly attack and criticize your own country overseas. It is doubly wrong to do so in the presence of those who hate the United States.

The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) is a far leftist propaganda group that has just released a report allegedly documenting a skyrocketing rate of "racism" among Israeli Jews against Arabs, in addition to discovering that Israel is a generally oppressive society.

 

A Jewish Response To Annapolis

Posted on: December 12th, 2007

InDepthOp-Eds

As Condoleezza Rice began orchestrating plans for the Annapolis Conference, which included extending invitations to governments notorious for their evil intentions, it was easy to guess what the message would be. She invited Middle Eastern Islamic participants to join the Palestinian Authority, whose terrorist policies are dedicated to wiping the State of Israel off the map.

 

The Torah On The Jewish Legal Claim To Eretz Yisrael

Posted on: December 12th, 2007

InDepthOp-Eds

The Torah, the book of law, takes great effort to establish the Jewish legal claim to the property of Eretz Yisrael. Rashi explains that the Torah began with creation because it anticipated the argument that would be made by the nations of the world – “listim ahtem,” you are robbers who stole the Land from the native inhabitants.

Posted on: December 12th, 2007

InDepthOp-Eds

Zaida’s presence follows me on my early morning walks to the park. Sometimes I imagine indulging in conversation, asking him what happened to those wondrous days following the Six-Day War, when the entire country belonged to us and our biggest problem was how to fill the vast areas that had fallen into our hands with Jews.
