Civilization’s Lament

Posted on: August 23rd, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

As the Hizbullah-Israel war wound down last week, pundits were quick to label winners and losers. Some said Hizbullah won because it survived, bombed Israel with 4,000 rockets, and earned the applause of the Arab "street." Others maintain that Israel won because Hizbullah was partially crippled, its leadership is in hiding, and the Lebanese will emerge from the dust furious at Hizbullah for a war they did not seek.

 

The Time Is Now – Israel And The West On The Brink

Posted on: August 23rd, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

Our beloved Israel is engaged in an existential fight for survival. From the moment of its birth in 1948, Israel has been under constant siege. This latest war, however, feels different. It comes upon Israel after decades of non-stop terrorist attacks, large-scale military battles, and endless international boycotts and condemnation.

 

Things Worth Remembering

Posted on: August 23rd, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

A general mood of depression has gripped Israel since the cease-fire in Lebanon came into force on Monday, August 14. It is unjustified. True, we again lost many precious sons in the quagmire of Lebanon. A large number of our soldiers and civilians are still crowding the hospitals, some of them seriously wounded. Our cities and settlements in the North suffered gaping wounds that will require months of rehabilitation.

 

The Sin Of Yehoyakimism

Posted on: August 16th, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

It is as unpleasant as it is impolitic to point out - in wartime, especially - that, despite all protestations to the contrary, the emperor indeed has no clothes. Neither spin nor sloganeering can conceal from the Jewish public and world opinion the obvious deterioration of Israel's security situation.

 

Ice Cream Cones And Rockets

Posted on: August 16th, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

One night last week I heard a bloodcurdling scream coming from upstairs. "Mommy!" Cries at that level of urgency, panic, and volume can mean only one thing: My children had seen a cockroach that had wandered out of a newly-formed hole hidden behind the bathtub.

 

One God, One People, One Land

Posted on: August 16th, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

Although we have been pressured into accepting a cease-fire, which will only give our enemies an opportunity to rebuild their war machine meant to destroy the Jewish people, this war has not come to an end. As with our previous wars, beginning with the war of liberation in 1948, we are continually forced to fight for the very existence of our people and the independence of the Jewish homeland.

 

Less Secretive Than The Jets?

Posted on: August 16th, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

During a recent trip to Israel, I couldn't help but notice the dearth of fellow visitors and think of the many religiously observant American Jews who stridently demand that Israel never cede any land.

 

The Right Stuff – Showing Our Appreciation For The IDF

Posted on: August 16th, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

There is a story told about the great Mirrer rosh yeshiva, Rav Chaim Shmulevitz, zt"l. During the Six-Day War a bombshell landed near the yeshiva, just missing it. No one was injured. Rav Shmulevitz decided to make a seudas hoda'ah, a festive meal thanking God for this nes nistar (hidden miracle) that spared his students any injury.

 

Lebanon War A Tale Of Israeli Mistakes, American Fortitude

Posted on: August 16th, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

The war in Lebanon should not have surprised anyone. For many years, Hizbullah, which is funded, equipped and ideologically supported by Iran and Syria, has made it crystal clear that its goal is to conquer Israel, expel its Jewish inhabitants, and place the entire land under Islamic rule.

 

An Unmitigated Disaster

Posted on: August 16th, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

There is a good reason that Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah has accepted UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which sets the terms for a cease-fire between his jihad army and the State of Israel.

 

Psychological Roots Of Islamic Rage

Posted on: August 9th, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

Islamic terrorists routinely kidnap the most vulnerable civilians and hold them hostage. Hamas and Hizbullah, like Arafat's PLO, hold their own people hostage as well, and hide both themselves and their weapons among Muslim civilians.

 

Jerusalem Diary

Posted on: August 9th, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

Tuesday, July 25, 2006 - The close of another day that I had hoped would be the beginning of an epitaph, the inscription commemorating the end of this war. However, it wasn't meant to be. Instead, another day of enduring news of rocket fire, wounded, and dead.

 

A World Without Israel/Democrats Prefer Neutrality

Posted on: August 9th, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

The world is full of Israel-haters. I don't know why. It probably has something to do with anti-Semitism - and even more to do with lack of knowledge and understanding about the Middle East.

 

Nothing In, Nothing Out

Posted on: August 9th, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

A democratically elected government's ultimate responsibility is the safety and security of its citizens. Accordingly, achieving that goal is the task facing the Israeli government in its dual war against Hizbullah terrorists on its northern front and Hamas terrorists in Gaza.

 

We Will Not Capitulate

Posted on: August 9th, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

Ladies and gentlemen, leaders of the world. I, the prime minister of Israel, am speaking to you from Jerusalem in the face of the terrible pictures from Kfar Kana. Any human heart, wherever it is, must sicken and recoil at the sight of such pictures. There are no words of comfort that can mitigate the enormity of this tragedy. Still, I am looking you straight in the eye and telling you that the State of Israel will continue its military campaign in Lebanon.

 

Air Power Goes Only So Far

Posted on: August 2nd, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

In 1967 Israel defeated the combined armies of the Arab world in six days.

 

Hizbullah’s Nazi-Like Propaganda

Posted on: August 2nd, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

"Just like Hitler fought the Jews, we are a great Islamic nation of jihad, and we too should fight the Jews and burn them." - Hisham Shamas, political science student, at a symposium hosted by Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV at Lebanon's largest and only government-run university, Université Libanaise, November 29, 2005.

 

Jewish Birth No Shield For Anti-Israel Views

Posted on: August 2nd, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

Whenever Israel uses military force, there is always a cadre of Jews who feel it is their duty to undermine the Israeli government. They begin arguments by claiming moral superiority through their Judaism.

 

Why Lieberman Will Lose

Posted on: August 2nd, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

I hate making this call about my Orthodox Jewish brother Joe Lieberman, but he almost certainly will lose next week's Connecticut Democratic Senate primary. He will be defeated, as predicted by the polls and pundits, primarily because of his support for the Iraq war and his refusal to join in the demonization of George W. Bush.

 

Among Israel’s Heroes

Posted on: August 2nd, 2006

InDepthOp-Eds

The news that I, along with Rabbi Avi Weiss (Rav Avi), would be embarking to the north of Israel on a mission of solidarity and unity was met by many friends and colleagues with a myriad of responses. Many were supportive of the mission, all were apprehensive about the dangers, and yet some were cynical about our motives and chances of success.
