A “financial war” against Tehran would be the most humane way of avoiding a nuclear one

Posted on: December 1st, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

A threat of this magnitude calls not for prevarication, but swift and strong action: every day that passes without massive Western pressure increases the likelihood of a military strike against Iran.

 

You Just Might Be An ‘Occupier’

Posted on: November 30th, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

Many of us are scratching our heads trying to make sense of the Occupy Wall Street movement and its sundry clones around the world.

 

We Mourn And They Mourn

Posted on: November 30th, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

The morning of November 8 (11 Cheshvan) was an unusual one for me. I had awakened early in preparation for a flight out of town to deliver a presentation at a teacher in-service program in the New York area. I scrolled through my inbox only to learn that Rabbi Nosson Tzvi Finkel, rosh yeshiva of Mir Jerusalem, had passed away hours before.

 

Left’s Critique Of Jewish Settlement Doesn’t Stop At Green Line

Posted on: November 30th, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

The standard critique of Israel’s settlement movement from the Zionist left has been to point out that attempting to assert sovereignty over the West Bank could lead to an Arab majority.

Is Israel Still The Country It Once Was?

Posted on: November 30th, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

As military analyst Yaakov Katz wrote recently in The Jerusalem Post, “Something has changed in Israel.” Once, Israel was renowned for daring military operations like the 1972 capture of five Syrian intelligence officers, the 1976 raid on Entebbe and, even as recently as 2007, the air strike on a Syrian nuclear reactor.

 

A Graduate Of Eiver’s Yeshiva

Posted on: November 23rd, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

These are the generations of Yaakov, Yosef being seventeen years old…. Seventeen years old? We are struck by this information. Why would the Torah deem it necessary to inform us about Yosef’s age?

 

Anti-Semitism On The March In European Politics

Posted on: November 23rd, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

Anti-Semitic and other criminal worldviews received greater legitimization in the European Union with the recent inclusion of the Laos (The Popular Orthodox Rally) Party in the Greek government.

The Party is Over

Most Israelis understand that the funding of Israeli organizations by foreign governments is a way to enable these governments to advance their agenda of delegitimizing Israel.

I don’t expect that all of us present agree on all issues. To the contrary, certainly we don’t. But the Sheikh represents an alternative to the Palestinian Authority

A free people in our land – Hebron

Posted on: November 17th, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

Several years ago, on the anniversary of the liberation of Hebron in 1967, I was interviewed by a journalist who queried me about various problems facing Hebron’s Jewish community. His concluding question/statement was, “Well, I guess you’re not celebrating today?”

 

The Prime Ministers: I Liked The Book So Much, I Had To Speak With The Author

Posted on: November 16th, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

I had just finished reading The Prime Ministers (Toby Press) and enjoyed every one of its 700-plus pages. Yahuda Avner’s “fly on the wall” account spans the governments of Levi Eshkol (Six-Day War), Golda Meir (Yom Kippur War), Yitzhak Rabin (Entebbe, Oslo), and Menachem Begin (peace treaty with Sadat, attack on Iraqi nuclear reactor, Lebanon invasion), describing sensitive, frightening and sometimes hilarious events, mostly of the kind you will never read in a newspaper.

 

Abbas Rejects Arafat’s Statehood Strategy

Posted on: November 16th, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

Over the past several weeks the media have been enamored by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s push to obtain United Nations recognition of a Palestinian state. The media coverage has exclusively focused on the political aspects of Abbas’s effort and its relationship to the so called peace process involving the Israel and PA.

The Myth Of Israel’s Rightward Turn

Posted on: November 16th, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

With Israel just having observed a memorial day for slain prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, this is a good time to debunk a myth that has recently gained great currency: that Israel’s population has become increasingly right-wing, constituting a major obstacle to peace.

 

Terror Victims’ Rights

Posted on: November 12th, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

Now that Gilad Shalit is home, it is time for Israel to have a national discussion about the price of redeeming captive soldiers and the rights of terror victims.

Occupied Territory

Posted on: November 12th, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

Ever since a light bulb went off in Yasir Arafat’s head and the idea of a Palestinian people was born, Israel has become known to the world as an “occupier.”

 

America Can Prosecute Terrorists Freed By Israel

InDepthOp-Eds

On August 9, 2001, Ahlam Tamimi, a member of Hamas, drove a suicide bomber to the Sbarro restaurant in the heart of Jerusalem, where the bomber blew himself up, killing 15 people including Judy Greenbaum, an American citizen from New Jersey.

 

How The Media Can Help Heal Gilad Shalit

Posted on: November 12th, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

For five long years, a media campaign swirled around the abduction and internment of Gilad Shalit, gaining momentum with every passing day. Without a doubt, it was the media that helped keep his story alive and contributed significantly to his release, creating public pressure in favor of the historic (though unsettling) exchange of over one thousand convicted terrorists for Gilad's freedom.

 

Flip-Flop To Victory

Posted on: November 12th, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

Beginning with Kennedy and Nixon in 1960, major party nominations and presidential election campaigns have increasingly been subjected to forms of circus television we carelessly label "debates."

 

A Tale Of Two Movements

Posted on: November 2nd, 2011

InDepthOp-Eds

Like many other families this past Sukkos, my husband and I took the kids to the park over Chol Hamoed. But we left our mitts and bats in the car when we arrived. This was a trip to Manhattan's Zuccotti Park.
