Can the Left Stand Up Against Anti-Semites?

We don’t normally pay much attention to what is published in Tikkun magazine, let alone what its editor Michael Lerner disseminates through his e-mail list. But occasionally Lerner’s tirades shine a light on the positions of the far left that illustrate exactly where some of Israel’s critics stand in a way that makes clear how they have made common cause with those who seek the Jewish state’s destruction.

Moral Incoherence In Irish Teacher’s Union Boycott

The Ultimate In Audacity

Last month United Torah Jewry MKs heckled a speech by Prime Minister Netanyahu and then walked out of the room. As the prime minister read out the names of the ministers in his new government, UTJ MK Yisrael Eichler shouted, “Jews don’t ban Jews” from the Knesset. (The reference was to demands by the Yesh Atid Party that haredi parties be excluded from Netanyahu’s new coalition.)

The Speech Obama Didn’t Make

Now that several weeks have passed since President Obama’s visit to Israel, it is possible to get a better perspective on many of its aspects. Focus must not only be placed on what was said and done, but also on what was missing.

April 16, 2013 Dear Mr. President, My heartfelt sympathies to you and the American people for the acts of protest carried out in Boston this week during the Boston Marathon. This really is a wake-up call for us all.

Islam’s Jew-Hating Hadith in Context

The infamous hadith about the Jew hiding behind a tree is not some apocrophyl canon held in esteem by an unimportant few, but runs parallel to anti-Jewish motifs throughout the Koran.

As Israelis Mourn the Dead, Jordanians Glorify Killer

The very word "hero" was used by the Jordanian justice minister in joining the chorus calling for the release of a convicted terrorist.

WOW threaten our very right to the Land.

Flag-Elation

Erev Yom Ha’Atzmaut, 2012: As I return from a visit to my elderly mother in the northern part of Jerusalem, the bus winds its way through ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods. The stone buildings along the route are colorless shades of sand and grey, some new, some old and blackened with age. Men and women rush through busy streets, expressions of pain and joy, helpless and hopeful looks defining their faces.

One Nation Under One Roof

On Thursday Night, February 28, Jews from all walks of life flocked to Barclays Center, the new state of the art arena at the corner of Flatbush and Atlantic Avenues in Brooklyn. Walking outside the area gave one an almost Jerusalem-like feel as the excitement built for a historic night of Jewish music.

Where Was The President When He Supposedly Was In Israel?

What a week it was for Jerusalem late last month. The president of the United States arrived, transformed the King David Hotel into his (and his entourage’s) home away from home, and then began a series of meetings and visits – to the official residences of President Peres and Prime Minister Netanyahu, to the Israel Museum and the Shrine of the Book, to the Jerusalem Convention Center, to Mount Herzl, Yad Vashem, and to the grave of former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin. All these sites are in Jerusalem. But are they in Israel?

The ADD Epidemic: How Real Is It?

I recently read yet another article in a Jewish publication stressing the importance of having your child tested for attention deficit disorder if he is having trouble at school or finds paying attention difficult. I would have yawned if I hadn’t gotten so frustrated. The fact of the matter is that there is no scientific test for ADD. It’s a condition diagnosed by clinical evaluation – and grossly over-diagnosed at that.

The War of Ideologies in the Arab World

Radical Islamist ideology must be analyzed and challenged or the fight against terrorism wil have no end.
