Santorum, Dutch Euthanasia And Goldstone

Posted on: March 21st, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

Let us employ a bit of fantasy and assume that Muslim states were intent on assailing the Netherlands. They would claim in the United Nations Human Rights Council that the hundreds of cases every year of euthanasia in the Netherlands, in which the patient is not asked his or her permission, constitutes a severe breach of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These states could easily muster a majority to have the UNHRC appoint a commission of inquiry into this matter.

What Does It Mean To Be ‘Pro-Israel’?

Posted on: March 21st, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

There is no one definition of the term “pro-Israel.” It does not require anyone to be a cheerleader for Netanyahu or any other Israeli leader or party. But there are some things one cannot do and still claim to be within the pro-Israel camp. One of them is to adopt rhetoric that apes the efforts of Israel-haters to delegitimize supporters of Israel and which adopts the classic themes of anti-Semitism.

Video: Carol Simantov Misses her Old Friends from Gaza

Posted on: March 17th, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

Outside the battered wall of the kindergarten, we met with registered nurse Carol Simantov, from Levittown, Pa., who has seen up close the wages of this war. But to my surprise, she harbored no resentment, not even anger. Instead, she spoke wistfully about her friends back inside the Gaza strip, who are suffering under the yoke of the Hamas government.

The Academic Jihad Against Israel

Posted on: March 14th, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

In Genocidal Liberalism: The University’s Jihad Against Israel & Jews, published by the David Horowitz Freedom Center, Dr. Richard Cravatts pulls no punches, relentlessly anatomizing the pedagogic bias currently in place, which is neo-Marxist in its orientation and undeniably anti-Jewish in its expression.

Israel Has Legal Case For Iran Attack

Posted on: March 14th, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

In a world where nuclear weapons could soon be in the hands of a rogue nation like Iran, an Israeli preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities would be fully justified.

Purim Meditation: After Rush Limbaugh Insulted Me

Posted on: March 8th, 2012

JudaismHolidays

It wasn't a biggie, really, I've been called worse. When my wife heard what Rush had been calling me, she said she wasn't surprised. So maybe it wasn't even such a bad thing that Rush did, maybe he even meant it as a caution, so I would go ahead and mend my loose morals. But here's the funny thing, as soon as news came out that Rush insulted me, people started empathizing with me and writing Rush's advertisers to stop sponsoring him because of what he said about Yanover.

Harvard Never Learns

Posted on: March 7th, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

This past weekend Harvard hosted a One-State Solution Conference, designed to promote the dissolution of Israel. It is only the latest example of that university’s longstanding practice of facilitating the spread of anti-Semitism.

Once Upon A Time There Was An Adorable Little Country…

Posted on: March 7th, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

And after helping so many groups of people, after absorbing so many sets of refugees, after solving so many of the world's problems, there were no longer any wise leaders to govern the adorable little state. Because it had humanitarian-ized itself into oblivion.

Three Cheers For Ray Kelly And The NYPD

Posted on: March 7th, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

Equating terrorism with criminality is ridiculous. They have no relationship to one another. Criminality is generally for the purpose of enrichment of oneself by breaking the law. Modern day terrorism seeks to achieve political or military goals by the use of indiscriminate terror directed primarily at innocent civilians.

Alan Dershowitz: President Obama Turns a Corner on Iran

Posted on: March 4th, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

For those who have claimed that Obama is anti-Israel and/or weak on Iran, his forceful statements in a recent interview should make them reconsider. I was not surprised by President Obama's strong words, because he said similar things to me in private conversation. And I, for one, am satisfied with the President's words. Now I want to hear them repeated by Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, by Joint Chief of Staff Martin Dempsey and by others in the Obama Administration.

Demonstrations And Remonstrations On Agunah Day

Posted on: February 29th, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

Those who are subjected to emotional suffering tend to be kept out of society's line of sight. All the more so when society is either the cause of the suffering or can alleviate it and does not do so.

What Satmar Chassidim Can Teach The Author Who Trashed Them

Posted on: February 29th, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

Dear Deborah, Your book, Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of my Hasidic Roots, has touched a lot of nerves and unsettled a lot of hearts in the Orthodox Jewish community. It is not every day that a Satmar woman divorces her husband, moves to Manhattan and writes a tell-all book about the experience. It is not every day that a Satmar woman writes about her chassidic experience with derision and her intimate relations without inhibition.

Why Purim Is Forever

Posted on: February 29th, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

Why is Purim eternal? I would suggest that Purim is the prototype of the End of Exile, and as such will remain forever linked to the Era of Mashiach that will occur after the Final Redemption. Therefore, Purim will be part of that entire period at the culmination of history.

The Mormon Senator Who Tried To Save Anne Frank

Posted on: February 29th, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

The news that a Mormon temple in the Dominican Republic recently conducted a posthumous proxy baptism of Anne Frank, the most famous diarist of the Holocaust, undoubtedly will cause some offense in the Jewish community. Evidently the baptizers believe they were saving Anne's soul. Of greater significance, however, is what Mormons tried to do to save Anne's life.

Popular Israeli TV Host Calls for Reducing Number of “Ultra Orthodox Grandchildren”

Posted on: February 28th, 2012

InDepthMonitor

Yaron London is spelling stuff out, having moved, like many secular Israelis, from bemused disliking of the Ultra Orthodox to outright loathing anyone wearing a black hat and a beard. Now he's out for blood. His op-ed piece in Y'net Tuesday recalls earlier solutions to "the Jewish problem."

Fear and Loathing on the Mount of Olives

Posted on: February 28th, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

Returning Jewish life to Jerusalem is normal. Jews and Arabs living together is normal. Grave desecration is not normal and throwing rocks at tour groups is not normal. But that desecration and those rocks are futile because they will neither scare nor deter the Jewish people from reclaiming our rights and continuing the process of normalization in eastern Jerusalem and throughout the land.

Personal View: Islamic Revolutionary Guards Arrest BBC ‘Activists’

Posted on: February 26th, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

The Iranians are picking up BBC operatives and throwing them in jail, which is awful, except that it's difficult to read a story about a government getting back at those pesky radio lads with their perfect British accents and preconceived notions about life, the universe and everything. Maybe it takes the Iranian regime to shut them up? We're only kidding, of course. Half kidding.

Billionaire Adelson Weighs Pouring $100 million into Newt’s Campaign

What if you had $25 billion and no mortgage and the kids were already out of college – would you give Newt Gingrich $100 million so he could go out and play candidate again?

Teacher, Love Your Student: It Takes More Than Chapters, Pages and Lessons

Posted on: February 22nd, 2012

InDepthOp-Eds

A young teacher described this episode that occurred early in her teaching career: “One beautiful spring morning when I arrived at school, I was surprised to see a youngster waiting at the door. ‘It’s locked,’ he said sadly. His expression brightened as I began to fumble for my keys. ‘You’re a teacher!” he exclaimed in obvious delight.
