Not All Anti-Zionists Are Created Equal

Hating Palin: Words Of Wisdom From Ronald Reagan

It has taken me a couple of weeks but I think I’ve finally gotten handle on why Sarah Palin’s bravado Republican convention speech was such a smash among conservatives: After nearly eight years of watching President Bush curl up in the fetal position each time he was savaged by the angry left, it was positively invigorating to see a conservative Republican finally fight back – and with wit and charm.

A Taste Of Eternity

Yom Kippur is the most solemn day of the Jewish year and it is also the strangest - because it seems to negate all that makes us human.

Jeremiah Wright And The Irony Of Black Racism

The irony doesn’t get any better than this. Barack Obama is supported by multitudes of Americans so eager to demonstrate their “liberal” benevolence that they gave him their votes on faith, before they had any substantial knowledge of who the man really is. Enter into the picture the images of Obama’s beloved minister of 20 years, Jeremiah Wright, spewing his hateful venom to his delirious mass of followers.

An Israeli looks Around the world, and is Happiest at Home

As Israel watches the unraveling of Europe, hears the fears of local Jews, witnesses the insanity of American Democrats demanding open borders, sanctuary cities that protect criminal illegal migrants and endanger their lawful citizens, it seems that the outside world has gone mad.

Accepting The Reality Of Islamic Anti-Semitism

The increasing Muslim immigration to Europe and America raises concerns that some of the new arrivals will bring with them the culture of anti-Semitism so prevalent in their home countries.

I Believe in the Jewish People

The fires we lit were for memorial candles, and not firebombs. We are not the same.

End Game

Most people probably agree, these days, that the military invasion of Iraq was a mistake. Whatever you thought at the time (and I was among those who believed it was worth the effort in light of Saddam’s actions and the realization of our vulnerability after 9/11), the evidence since has been pretty clear.

What Obama Said At The Mosque

To understand Obama, the best place to go is his speeches. But you must read them in their entirety.

In Defense Of Traditional Matrimony

Marriage is under assault again in this country, as fewer adults choose to tie the matrimonial knot while the Left continues to lend civil and economic credence to unions of same-sex partners.

“Baseless Hatred” and the Temple Mount

The reason we’re still banished from the Temple Mount is not because some women want to pray at the Kotel with tefillin and Torah scrolls; it’s not because other Jews, who believe this is prohibited, attempt to block them. But it may well because of the type of rhetoric and methods that both sides use against each other.

What Israel Isn’t Learning From Rhodesia

There once was a nation called Rhodesia. Located in southern Africa, Rhodesia was a nation with a European minority that ruled over black Africans.
