Not Of This World

Posted on: January 27th, 2010

InDepthOp-Eds

What is so special about Tu B'Shevat? Historically, nothing memorable occurred on this day. Why do we celebrate the New Year of the Trees?

 

Extremism Threatens A Longtime Friendship

Posted on: January 20th, 2010

InDepthOp-Eds

Turkey has long been one of Israel's most important allies. While one is predominantly Muslim and the other Jewish, the two countries have prided themselves in maintaining their secular democracies. But our friendship has been strained recently with an appalling level of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic rhetoric coming out of Turkey.

 

What The JFS Decision Means For UK Jews

Posted on: January 20th, 2010

InDepthOp-Eds

This past Chanukah, which of course commemorates the Jews' revolt against Greek attempts to destroy Judaism, the Supreme Court here in Great Britain issued a ruling that attacked as racist and made illegal a fundamental principle of Jewish life: that Judaism is transmitted through the mother.

 

Cold Shoulders And Cheeseburgers

Posted on: January 20th, 2010

InDepthOp-Eds

Having received a number of comments regarding my Jan. 1 op-ed article "Its Time to Bring Back the Communal Cold Shoulder," it's apparent that I need to clarify my position.

 

A Message To Parents of Coed College-Bound Students

Posted on: January 20th, 2010

InDepthOp-Eds

The Stories 1. Josh is a 20-year-old college student who was given a yeshiva education from kindergarten through 12th grade. No doubt his parents spent well over $100,000 for his solid Jewish education. He is involved in Jewish life on campus and attends minyan regularly, though life on campus is a spiritual battle. So when he told me he went to his college football team's stadium to attend a game on a Shabbos afternoon, I was a little disappointed.

 

The Will To Win

Posted on: January 20th, 2010

InDepthOp-Eds

Like the general who hones his military strategy by fighting the last war, America's politicians and some of its counterterrorism experts are engaged in thwarting future terrorist threats by diligently preparing for the past. Muslim-Arab terrorists hijack planes (this actually dates back to the 1960s, not 2001), and all passengers and luggage must be carefully searched.

 

A Miracle Grows In Poland

Posted on: January 13th, 2010

InDepthOp-Eds

Back in the early 1980s, I was just becoming a journalist - in the democratic underground, for no self-respecting person would serve as a mouthpiece for the military regime that was running Poland at the time.

 

Heroes In Dark Times

Posted on: January 13th, 2010

InDepthOp-Eds

Reality has become somewhat Scandinavian. It grows dark early and it is bitterly cold here in New York City and over a good portion of our fair land. Our Prince of Peace (The Norwegian Nobel, not the noble variety) is not yet asking whether "to be or not to be." Perhaps he is not entirely convinced that "that is the question."

 

Guests Or Residents? Women In Our Shuls

Posted on: January 13th, 2010

InDepthOp-Eds

A few weeks ago I was completing the silent amidah at the morning minyan I attend in my local shul. Suddenly, a cold breeze shot through the room. I headed back to the door of the bet midrash where we pray and saw that a young observant woman I know had propped the door slightly ajar in order to hear the repetition of the Shemoneh Esrei and the reading of the Torah.

 

Israel’s Ongoing Internal Struggle

Posted on: January 13th, 2010

InDepthOp-Eds

Everyone remembers Israel's wars - in 1948, 1967, and 1973 - against the Arab states that vowed to destroy it. Its wars against the terrorist regimes embedded on its borders - Fatah and then Hizbullah in Lebanon and, most recently, Hamas in Gaza - are now memorable largely for the protests they provoked from liberal and anti-Zionist critics.

 

This Is War, Mr. President

Posted on: January 6th, 2010

InDepthOp-Eds

In 2004, I supported George W. Bush for a second term as president because I believed the most important issue facing the United States was the threat posed by Islamic terrorism, a life or death issue.

Double Standard Stigmatizes Jerusalem’s Jews

Posted on: January 6th, 2010

InDepthOp-Eds

At the same time the Obama administration was condemning the lawful construction of apartments in a Jewish section of Jerusalem, the president was giving his blessing to illegal settlement elsewhere, seemingly unaware of the troubling irony.

The Tiger Woods Saga And its Jewish Lesson

Posted on: January 6th, 2010

InDepthOp-Eds

His tragic saga was all too familiar. His mesmerizing talent rapidly captured the world's attention. His impeccable image of integrity gained him the respect and affection of multitudes. His solid control of the media was remarkable.

 

Khazars, Islamists, And A Jewish Enabler

Posted on: January 6th, 2010

InDepthOp-Eds

Islamist extremists have a problem. Traditional Islam explicitly acknowledges that the Land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people. The Koran itself is extraordinarily clear about the status of the Land of Israel in Islam. While criticizing Jews for their supposed sinfulness, the Koran relatesin Sura 5:21, that Moses (a revered teacher in Islam) tells the Jews to "enter into the Holy Land that Allah has assigned to you."

In separate incidents on the same night two weeks ago, two children in Israel were murdered by adults.

 

How About Correcting Your Misstatements, Mr. Carter?

Posted on: December 30th, 2009

InDepthOp-Eds

Dear President Carter: We at CAMERA have been outspoken in our criticism of the many factual errors and distortions about Israel in your book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, as well as in various op-eds and media appearances. We've been greatly concerned that false allegations you've made damage Israel, promoting misunderstanding, enmity and prejudice against that nation and its people.

 

Dayenu II: No More Appeasement

● Had President Obama only given a speech in Cairo to the Arab world in "de-Nile" of the actual history of the region - dayenu.

 

Promoting Pius XII

Posted on: December 30th, 2009

InDepthOp-Eds

Ten years ago, the Catholic-Jewish Historical Commission, established to investigate Pope Pius XII's response to the Holocaust, met for the first time to discuss its future work. I was the only Israeli historian among the six scholars (three Catholics and three Jews) designated by the Vatican and leading Jewish organizations to study this hotly contested issue.

 

Saying Goodbye To Yaakov Avinu

Posted on: December 30th, 2009

InDepthOp-Eds

Doesn't it make you sad? Every year, when we finish Sefer Bereishis, I feel like crying. There is nothing like being in the presence of our Fathers Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov and our Mothers Sarah, Rivka, Rachel and Leah.

 

The EU’s ‘East Jerusalem’ Christmas Gift

Posted on: December 23rd, 2009

InDepthOp-Eds

Christmas came early for Israel’s enemies this holiday season. On December 1 a draft statement from the European Union calling for the immediate restart of negotiations leading to a “viable state of Palestine ... with East Jerusalem as its capital” made worldwide news.
